Random Cool Stuff

Below are some links to pages that I thought were randomly cool or coolly random. In no particular order, apart from the way they popped into my head.

Chaoscope Chaoscope is a 3D strange attractors rendering software. …which in plain English means: this is a program which spits out really funky pieces of art based on mathematical equations. Like the one above. (Picture is the intellectual property of the owner of http://www.chaoscope.org )

Crime Library A somewhat morbid site, where you can read about all sorts of crimes and criminals. Anything from Mary Bell to Charles Manson to Fred and Rose West.

Clearahill A little snowboarding game I really like. Courtesy of – you guessed it – Clearasil™

Torah MP3 The entire written Torah read in Hebrew [and some Aramaic] available in MP3 format. The chap who reads – Abraham Shmuelof – pronounces each syllable very clearly, which is kind of handy, if you’re only just starting out learning Hebrew.

International Ice-Hockey Federation The home of ice-hockey. A place to watch the ice-hockey world championships live online. Very handy, especially if you happen to live in a country which refuses to acknowledge the existence of this fantabulous sport.

The Movement For Reform Judaism The umbrella organisation for shuls [synagogues] belonging to my particular branch of Judaism. This is a great place to learn more about reform Judaism in the UK.

Zxing Decoder Online Does exactly what it says on the tin; a very simple page which allows you to decode 1D and 2D zxing / QR barcodes found in images online. Zxing is pronounced “zebra crossing”, by the way.
