Weekly links for 4/24.

3 fairly useful links and a fun one this week.

  • JPEGmini OK, this is supposed to compress photos so they aren’t so big… the question is why didn’t I remember this while trying to send the baby pictures to mom a couple weeks ago? I ended up having to send 3 emails with 2 pictures each!
  • Propagated Yet? DNS Propagation notifier. OK, so when you buy a new domain you have to wait for everything to resolve and it can take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours, (usually, it’s about 24 hours in my experience.) this is supposed to tell you if the domain has resolved yet.
  • My Fitness Pal This is what I’m using to track my intake and exercise for my challenge thingy.
  • Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon I found out about this last weekend! This happens twice a year, in April and October. Although I’m not sure if I could maintain the concentration to read for the better part of 24 hours, (um… especially near the end!) I could however sign up to cheerlead. People sign up, then on the day of the event they blog every so often, (there isn’t really any structure, it could be every hour, or every 8 hours,) what books they’re reading, how they liked the last book they finished etc.

Yeah, that was a long explanation! I was going to leave it in the middle but I thought I better explain how the thing works.
