It's been a long time since I have seen this thing on a mpg stream. Apparently someone has too much time on his hand and converted it to Flash a movie.
This "how to" can make you realise that your mummy was wrong after all, and she has showing us a wrong way of folding our T-Shirt.

Cleaning Pennies with taco sauce

I have always wanted to find a cost effective way to polish my pennies, but without the need to buy expensive chemicals and other marketed polishing products.
While searching online I found out that this could be done by using off the kitchen shelf products such as Taco Sauce, Tabasco™, or vinegar and salt you can successfully have a well polished penny (Woohoo!!).
To share my findings for those who are interested here's the link.

GeekDIY - New Look

We (mostly Gadgeteer working out the many kinks) finally got the new look up and running. There are still some minor CSS issues we're looking at, so if it doesn't look quite right on your browser let us know via the feedback form in the right column. Please indicate your browser, o/s and versions for both.

Thanks to everyone that helped us test the design!

Turn Your XBox into a Media Center

Quente Cafe points us to a very interesting piece of open source software (GPL). XBMC turns your XBox into a media player allowing you to play/view most digital media formats (MPEG, VOB, AVI, Divx, Ogg, MP3, JPG, Gif, etc). A very cool feature is the ability to stream media via a network from a PC.

Universal IR remote control using iPod

Engadget has an interesting project, on how can you turn your iPods into a universal remote control. Which can be used to control all your home electronic equipment, or just about anything that uses a remote control, for example in our place we have our iPod controlling our TV, DVD Player, Direct TV, Ultimate TV PVR, Media Center PC, Xbox, XM Satellite Radio, Roomba and a few other random things like a Robot.
