Journal: Take a break from all this tech!

Journal by frostman

There are plenty of geeky topics on Frostopolis. But you're reading Slashdot, so you already have more than enough Vitamin G in your diet.

Take a break from all that, and look at some pictures!

Actual hand-made art, generally of the frame-it variety. It's good for you, and you're procrastinating anyway...

United States

Journal: BetaVote

Journal by frostman

What if the whole world could vote in the US presidential election?

That's the idea behind a little project my friend Daniel Young thought up. I made a fairly minimal website for it.

Check it out here:

http://www.betavote.com

It is of course just an unofficial poll but if enough people take a second to vote it could get very interesting.

Journal: LV8.US

I've been tinkering off and on with a new artistic endeavor...

It's not big enough to make any formal announcement about it yet, but on a lark I decided to post a link to it here. You know, in case anybody actually reads my Slashdot Journal.

Here we go:

Journal: I wish Slashdot had AdWords-like ads

Journal by frostman

...because I often click on people's website and sig links if their comments are interesting.

I think it would be really cool to see what the slashdotters would come up with in terms of low-budget ads.

Targeted by topic of course.

It seems weird and stupid to me that Slashdot, which lives on the comments of its members, only allows advertising for the deep-pocketed.

Why can't someone run an ad for ten bucks? Say, only on YRO posts, rotated, and maybe it's only a thousand impressions. Still it would be good.

Journal: i wish the journals allowed more HTML

Journal by frostman

i think it would be cool if /. allowed a greater range of HTML tags in the journals.

not allow *anything* mind you, not embedded movies and such, but more formatting options.

so you could do things like <span style="...">, or so you could put in ASCII art without the /. "code" filter screwing it up.

of course it would be good to have a user setting like "allow rich formatting in journals."

but i often find myself checking out the /. journal of someone who's made an interesting (or funny) post, and when i find cool stuff there i wonder how much cooler it might be if they had a chance at making it look good.

anybody agree?
