Telly wandelt Telefonnummern in Wörter um

Fr, 2009-09-18 22:58 by Hans-Georg

Habe gerade ein kleines Programm fertiggestellt, Telly, mit dem man Telefonnummern in Wörter umwandeln kann, die man dann eintippen kann.

Manche Telefonnummern lassen sich gut durch Wörter darstellen, andere nicht. Nullen und Einsen haben leider auch keine Buchstaben und sind daher hierfür ungünstig. Manchmal lassen sich die Wörter besser merken. Jedenfalls viel Spaß!

Live choir video—Perpetuum Jazzile: "Africa"

Di, 2009-06-30 20:33 by Hans-Georg

Enjoy this choir. I think they are amazing.

After starting the video, you can enable "HQ" and full-screen display, if you like and if you have a fast Internet connection. And turn up your sound volume.

The places we live—slums around the world

The places we live - this photo shows Caracas

Watch this panoramic, narrated photo show and listen to the personal stories of some of the inhabitants of the world's fastest-growing human habitat—the slum.

I believe it is important to understand how slums work and what they feel like, but many of you have never set foot into one, so this may be your best chance to do so, if only virtually.
