Wednesday, March 28, 2007 Comic Strip Creator

toondoo.jpg has a pretty cool Drag and Drop Comic Strip Creator.

ToonDoo is a cool, comic-creating tool from Jambav, a fun site for kids. Jambav is devoted to creating a unique array of free and customizable online games of educational value for children of all abilities.

You can now just drag-drop or click to create comic strips that express your views, opinions, angst or to just have fun, loads of it!

Where can I use it?
ToonDoo looks to be friendly for most platforms...including MySpace!

Do I have to sign up?
You do if you want to create a comic strip.
You don't if you want to display comics created by others. (just have to find the embed codes)

I believe each comic strip comes with an RSS feed and Digg and submit links.

Please comment on this product...I'm interested in your opinions.

Ganguly's sour ankle to be tested

Sourav Ganguly's sour right ankle will be tested by team physio John Gloster during the nets on Tuesday.Ganguly reported of soreness in his ankle on the eve of their warm-up match against the West Indies last week and took part for only 11 overs in the practice game.Although Captain Rahul Dravid has dismissed the issue as nothing serious but the team management is not taking chances.

"By the looks of it, it is not serious. He has been uncomfortable because of this old injury, which has flared up again. But we do not see it as serious," Dravid has said.Ganguly does not seem overtly concerned by his injury but has sought Gloster's attention in the last few days.Dravid too is not bothered and was his phlegmatic self while describing that he expected all 15 members of his side to stand up and be counted if so was the need of the hour.

Ganguly, barring something serious, should figure in the starting line-up in the game against Bangladesh on Saturday.Even as the four teams in the group -- Bermuda, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, besides India -- buckled down for the real competition with practice sessions in morning and afternoon at two different venues of the city, the organisers were still busy applying the final coat, as it were, to the reconstructed Queen's Park Oval.

Trinidad and Tobago, as one of the Caribbean countries hosting matches of the 2007 World Cup, has been in news for wrong reasons so far.A match was abandoned with only one ball bowled at a venue; gusty winds blew away the sight screens in another; South Africa-Pakistan nearly abandoned a practice game and a gas made teams evacuate their hotel last week.

Hotel Hilton, where the four teams are being put up this time, is taking no chances and has taken necessary steps so that there is no repeat of last week when a gas leak made teams evacuate their rooms in a rush.The organisers faced battle on another front as plans were being drawn to stop congestion at the Queen's Park Oval during the match days.Anand Daniel, CEO of the Local Organising Committee implied that it was unable to have enough leverage to force the pace of work there because the Oval is the only privately-owned venue throughout the region.

He added that refurbishing was also harder than starting from scratch and that for posterity, the management of the Oval wanted to install the most modern facilities.Daniel stated, however, that come March 15, action out in the centre of the pitch will proceed as scheduled at the Oval.Original document from Rediff.

Sunday, March 04, 2007 Excellent Google tips

Today I found and discovered that this site is easy to read and very helpful. If you plan to start using Google for more than just search...this would be a good place to learn what else you can do with Google.

Here is an example:

We’re a step further in having Gmail as our universal inbox. Here’s a new feature I think a lot of users have been asking for: the ability to retrieve external email via POP.

Gmail now lets you add up to five email accounts that you can
retrieve into your Gmail inbox. The feature is not available to all
accounts as of now, though. Do check your Gmail Settings under the Accounts tab. If you see Get mail from other accounts, then you’ve got the feature activated!
