NewAgeStore.com ~ Jen over at NewAgeStore.com runs a tight ship and has been patient and persistent in her efforts to acquire an Astrologywizard.com recommendation. It just remains to say that this is well deserved, since while any storefront needs a commercial basis, look around for a lot of free information that is likely to catch your eye.
Nightingale Songs ~ It has been cold here for the past few days, but there was a nightingale singing every evening beforehand, keeping me company each night I was working late. This site helped me to talk with him and although I was trying out some bizarre phrases, I’d swear he was singing the louder as a consequence of what I said…
North Pole Live Webcam ~ We have had webcam pictures from the North Pole for a while, but nothing to match the live pictures coming from the South Pole. If you have ever wondered what is going on at the ends of earth, this situation has now been (almost) rectified, although you may need to search for a while for any day with good weather…
North Pole Swim ~ The Earth’s two poles are important to astrologers, because weird things start to happen there that question our understanding of how we usually look at a horoscope and how the dynamics of astrology actually work. So far as I know, nobody’s been born at either yet, but this guy just took a swim at one of them.
Numbeo: Cost of Living ~ My partner’s mother has now come into money and is intent on living the dream. She currently resides in Portugal, from where she raves on about the price of booze and cigarettes, her main requirements for a happy life. We feel compelled to advise her that twenty Marlboro are 59p in Lucknow, India. A bottle of mid-range wine is £1.48 in Moldova.
One Million Digits Of Pi ~ Pi is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. It is also an irrational number, since the quantity of decimal places to which it can be calculated is apparently infinite. Thirty-nine digits are enough to figure out the volume of the known universe down to one atom. Here, for your delectation are the first one million places.
Opposite Dictionary ~ Say you write regularly, either for public consumption or simply to keep in contact. If you are proud of your output there will no doubt be occasions, when you are stuck for the right word. Perhaps you are after an antonym and more or less the opposite of the word in your head, so you may find this website useful. It isn’t perfect, but it is a fine work in progress…
Oxford Internet Institute ~ This recommendation has nothing to do with astrology. However, it is connected to the medium you are interacting with now and you might like to spend a few moments looking it over. The Oxford Internet Institute endeavours to map some of the Worldwide Web’s latest trends. They incline towards visuals that are immediately accessible…
Pale Blue Dot ~ The Pale Blue Dot is a picture of the Earth taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft from a record distance of six billion kilometres. Both the idea and the title for this image came from scientist and astronomer Carl Sagan, who also wrote the book of the same name. All credits for this video to Ice Core Scientist, it’s a stunning journey…
Perennial Mandala Calendar ~ Jordan Ososki wrote to me and as a regular visitor, was full of praise for my weekly horoscopes and website in general. He also told me about this project, for which he is seeking funding. As he says, $5000 seems a lot for one poster. But wait until you factor in production costs, materials and plenty of time. So, I decided to give him a mention.
Pug PROS ~ This recommendation is really nothing to do with astrology, but when I stumbled across this site somehow it completely touched my heart. Some of the stories are so sad and these people are doing such good work that they deserve your support in whatever way you can. Put your hand in your pocket and do something, then!
Quotations Page ~ Need something new for your MySpace headline and tired of quoting Eminem? Writing regularly and short on things to say, never mind, say what somebody else said instead. Impress the boys and wow the girls, while sounding so erudite they’ll think you’ve swallowed your dictionary. Funk me, all you cunning linguists!
Random.org ~ The UK lottery is based on six random numbers between 1-49, but choosing truly random numbers isn’t so easy. Personal bias is inevitable, but the more random your choices the better your chances are. Here then is the perfect way to generate your own random numbers, although do still ask an astrologer about the best time to play…
Real-Time Satellites Around the Earth ~ Somehow, I just noticed this post from 2008. It maps the roughly 13,000 or so man-made satellites orbiting the Earth, tracked by US Strategic Command. Watch the video to convince yourself then download the plugin for a real-time experience. Makes you wonder how anyone can launch anything, with all that space debris out there…
Real Time Satellite Tracking ~ Not the easiest site for the casual observer to get to grips with, this specialist offering enables you to track a satellite of your choosing either around the world or simply overhead and to find out relatively swiftly, the technical data associated with it. You can select a category of satellite to follow or name those that interest you particularly.
