Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” – 20060731

Hi,

Good morning, another week has flitted by and I’ll bet that like me you didn’t even notice it whooshing past (it’s the same sound as deadlines make as they go past). This week I am going to start with the game BUT there is a reason for this. PRETENTIA.COM (the company who pay for the bandwidth for this stuff) have an almost mystical link with sheep (but only if they are in Ireland or Scotland).
Any way here is this weeks Flash game. It’s a hoot.

This site has just the one of the best names Extreme Instability and when you see the pictures Mike Hollingshead takes of the weather you will agree. Mike is a chaser, you know the whackoes who cruise around “Tornado Alley” in the stats looking for weather. Big Baddda Boom weather. I should point out that I love Twister – the movie not the game. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117998/ ) Check out the Aurora shots , truly beautiful.

I want one of these, it looks so cool. Really clever design make this incredible kite look digitally pasted right into the sky. Checkout the pics. Designed by Tim Elverston, this high-end kite is a gem! (Highend is natures way of saying “Sell the first born”)
