Sorry about Flash Friday guys. I was moving. You know how it is, right? Well it still is that way so this is going to be a quick one.
Design your own Lego Minifig! Why? Cause it's fun you soulless creep. Have you no joy left?

Signs of Witness tracks the coming apocalypse. What makes this site really interesting is that it is not out to reaffirm the beliefs of the religious or to mock them: it does both! As it's tag line says, it aims to track the apocalypse for "unbelievers, believers, and the unbelieved". You get a great mix of "Global warming is going to cause the end of the world in like 5 minutes!!" (actually there's a ton of these, maybe 40% of the site) and "Both Nostradamus AND the Bible Predict Asteroid Will Destroy the Earth!" This sometimes leads to a very entertaining combination of comments.
My favorite part of the page though, as you may have noticed by the pictures, is the sightings of various religious icons in everyday objects. "That diet coke spill looks just like Moses! Hallelujah!"

Today we're talking about Pownce, a new social networking site, but different than most: running on Adobe AIR, you can download a desktop app that let's you use it without using your browser. More like Twitter than Myspace, Pownce allows you to send files (music, photos, messages, links, and events) to your friends or the Pownce world at large.
Right now you can only join Pownce with an invitaion. But don't worry, your good friend Web Diversions has got your back. I've got 6 invites for the first 6 people to comment here. A note to livejournal users and other RSS readers: please come directly to the Web Diversions page to comment if you're interested.

Don Hertzfeldt is a genius. That's all there is to it. Expect to see more of his work on Web Diversions.
Without further ado, I bring you, Intermission in the 3rd Dimension.

Another game for your procrastination enjoyment. Spot the Difference is a game where you, well, spot the difference. But the attractive design and surprisingly challenging-to-find differences make this game stand out from the pack. Give it a try.

Now you can turn any image you have on your computer into a full-size poster. Block Posters let's you upload an image and then automatically breaks it up into letter-sized rectangles that you can print out and tape together. I recommend using a high-gloss paper and, rather than taping the pages together edge to edge, create a bold and attractive effect by evenly spacing them.
