And then I came to this RSVP card: What’s the correct way to fill this out? I figured out that the “M____” line is to […]

3D Paintings on Glass Incredible-looking 3D paintings, across multiple sheets of glass. (tags: 3d art gallery painting) Game Neverending Museum The origins of Flickr.

My First Google Check

Just the other day I received my very first check from Google. I’ve experimented with AdSense on my site for quite some time now, mainly on the individual post pages. I can’t tell you how much I make, but since I’m only getting my first check now, you can make some guesses (it ain’t much). […]
