    Another Free Image Hosting Site

    Tonight I shot a screenie of something I wanted to show Temmu in another thread around here. When I opened xfce4-screenshooter, I noticed that it now has the ability to upload directly to an image hosting service. The one they're using is call zimagez. It's located in France. Looks interesting... http://en.zimagez.com/

    Plan Your Free Online Education

    http://lifehacker.com/5938782/plan-your-free-online-education-at-lifehacker-u-fall-semester-2012?popular=true#tech I know some folks here may be involved in some projects so I'll highlight a few of the courses on offer. Harvard University - Computer Science 50x - Professor David J. Malan - When budding computer scientists and programmers find themselves at Harvard University, CS50 is the class they wind up in. It's demanding, but completely doable, especially for someone willing to buckle in and put in some effort to learn some broadly applicable programming skills. Whether you want to get a job as a developer and want to get some real skills under your belt, or you need to brush up on your codewriting technique, this open course will do the job. Video lectures and additional content are available at CS50.net and CS50.tv. Stanford University - Human-Computer Interaction - Professor Scott Klemmer - Form matters, sometimes as much as function. In this HCI course, you'll learn how to design and build interfaces and systems that people actually want to use - something that a lot of developers often overlook. Building incredible function is important—often paramount—but if your interface is so poor that your tool is unusable and difficult to operate, you've got a dud on your hands. This course will teach you the basics of visual design, help you learn to poll individuals for design ideas, build paper prototypes, do field work, and test your designs with others. The end goal is for you to learn what it takes to incorporate intelligent design into any technology. SmallBizU/Kutztown University of Pennsylvania - Finding Money to Start a Business - If you have an idea that you want to get off the ground, but finding the cash to do so is the problem, this 3-hour course will help you figure out where you can raise money, how to go about doing it, and some other important things an entrepeneur should consider when looking for the cash to make his or her idea reality. Carnegie Mellon University - American English Speech - The goal here isn't to learn english, and you won't boost your vocabulary, but you will learn to enunciate, you'll learn the impact of the words you choose and the way you say them, and you'll learn the nuances of American English speech. You'll become familiar with the symbols that represent the sounds we make, and overall improve your own speech—assuming you speak American English. If you don't, by the end of the course, you'll have a new appreciation for the complexities of the language and its dialects. MIT - Science Communication: A Practical Guide - Professors John Durant and Dr. Bina Venkataraman - If you're scientifically inclined (like myself) you also understand how difficult it can be to communicate the complex concepts addressed in scientific research to people who know little about the topic. This course offers tools that can help you discuss topics like climate change, astronomy, genetics, and more with people for whom the topics seem advanced, or whose education on the matters consists largely of heresy and Facebook posts. By the end of this class, you'll be ready to be an expert witness or give a live interview. An finally if you are involved in a project you will need this course. Caltech - Drugs and the Brain - Professor Henry A. Lester - Bring your neuroscience pants to this class: Lester covers the issue of drug use for therapy, prevention, treatment, and recreation, all in one packed class full of information that won't require that you have a specific background, but a mind familiar to science and scientific thinking will do well here. By the end of the course, you'll have a new appreciation for the complexities of the brain and how chemical interactions can change everything about our body chemistry.
