Cool Winter game

Winter gameNow that Winter is in the country why not play a Winter game. In order to make the sled go safely through the ring you have to give it the right power (of your mouse button). You press and hold the “go!” button to start the pusher.

He will push the sled until you let go of the button… Hope you avoid the accidents! :-P

Try to get to the 2nd level and it well get even funnier, the ring gets on fire to ad some spice to the game! Be sure to listen to the great sound fx ;-)

This app is made by a Belgian company called ChikenByte. I just heard about this through a comment posted on my blog and since they are from my country I got to let the world know that they did a pretty darn good job! :-)

Cows Going Wild in Switzerland

1 comments 2003 at 01.37 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

The classic Swiss postcard scene picturing a happy, brown cow with a bell around its neck munching grass against a backdrop of Swiss mountains is no longer as idyllic as it seems. Swiss cows have developed a mean streak since being left alone in the wild under a new rearing technique, raising the risk of attack for the unsuspecting rambler. As part of a new rearing technique, Swiss farmers are allowing their cows to roam the countryside for months at a time. Under this complete lack of human supervision, the cows have rediscovered their primal instincts and, as a result, they have become more aggressive towards people and dogs.

I made a Panther desktop from the picture I've taken somewhere in October on a Friday morning with the pink, purple sky. Hope you like it and download it! In return I only ask a bit publicity for our Duoh! website since the logo and URL are in it :-D

Desktop Panther

I made it in these resolutions:

More desktops coming in 2004!

Discovery of biggest maternity hospital for stars

Giant gas cloudThe Space Telescope Institute has announced that an international team of astronomers have discovered the biggest, brightest and hottest area in the cosmos (found until now) where stars originate. Through systematic study with a series of telescopes researchers came across a super-hot cloud of gas where millions of blue-white suns are being born behind a far away cluster of stars-systems.

The cloud in the constellation Lynx is a million times brighter then the Orion-nebulae, which exists nearby earth and from where small telescopes can detect the existence of stars. She looks like a mysterious red bow. The stars that originated from the giant cluster are twice as hot as stars compared in our galaxy. Fascinating is that the star-system generates gigantic stars, much bigger then all suns in our galaxy.

The giant stars have a surface temperature as far as 80.000 degrees Celsius. Our sun reaches five thousand degrees. Since the cloud is situated at a distance of twelve billion light-years from us, it is a rare observed example of the early years of the universe. Especially two billion years after the Big Bang.

New blog update…

Sorry to keep you waiting so long, but this takes more time then I thought and the problem is that it is SOooo hectic at the moment that I don’t find enough time to work on this at full speed. I’m currently experimenting with PHP scripting, to link my design to the content management system. This is new territory for me and this is of course another reason why it’s taking so long. Hopefully you’ll all be a bit extra patient with me. Thanks! :-)

Busted…no denial possible!

Six British schoolboys were rushed to the hospital after taking the erection-enhancing drug Viagra at lunchtime for a dare, the school said Thursday. Paramedics were called after a fellow student told teachers about the 13-year-olds’ prank, a spokesperson for Forest School in Winnersh, in southern England, said.

The local education authority said they think the student took the pills from home and brought them to the all-boys school where he shared them with five friends. The school has a no drugs policy and the students likely will face punishment, especially the student who brought the pills into school, the education authority said.

The Sun newspaper quoted a source at the school as saying: “By the time the afternoon lessons began, there was no hiding what they had done.” Paramedics took the six squirming boys to the nearby Royal Berkshire Hospital, where they were monitored until the effects wore off. The effects of Viagra are typically felt for up to 4 hours, according to

Global warming breeding bigger, longer-lived spiders

0 comments 2003 at 05.03 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Planning a trip to Australia? Think twice if spiders aren’t your best friends… The number of spiders in Australia, including potentially deadly redbacks, is exploding as scientists suspect global warming is wreaking havoc in wildlife populations. They said the migration patterns of birds were in disarray, and the status and distribution of many animals was undergoing fundamental change…
