Offtopic: Still no movement in the iPhone hackers camp. :( Meanwhile, tk Google Charter development goes on, although a new release isn't expected soon. :D
Discover and vote for new music at thesixtyone. Listen to any song and if you like what you hear, bump it up. But don't go about bumping songs indiscriminately though. Each bump costs you some points which you'll earn back if the song gets bumped by others.
Earn points by sampling tracks sitting in the Rack (upcoming songs). As you accumulate points, your level increases and you can start to do cool stuff like multi-bumping a single song.
Unlike most sites, thesixtyone provides full length songs (128kbps MP3) that are uploaded by the artists themselves. These are hosted on Amazon's servers so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the fast loading music.
While I was on the site, I noticed some familiar tunes like CSS's Music is My Hot, Hot Sex, which is currently looping on everyone's playlist. :) After listening to a couple of tracks, I actually discovered some that were worth hearing again. This was quite unexpected and surprising to me, as most music discovery services require some time to work successfully, despite my varied and fairly tolerant musical tastes.
thesixtyone is supported by donations and song purchases made through the AmazonMP3 service.
DrawterDrawter is a WYSIWYG HTML page creator with a twist. Instead of manually typing out everything, you draw it out on a canvas and it outputs the code for you.
As you begin showing off your artistry in draw mode, don't worry about making any mistakes. Simply switch to edit mode, select an element to resize it or change its type. You can also add text content or edit its attributes and styles. When you're done, it's time to generate your code.
The generated code is split into 3 sections - all site, HTML and CSS. All site displays the HTML code together with the CSS in the head tag (inline styles), while HTML and CSS show only the HTML and CSS respectively.
With support for HTML and XHTML as well as CSS, Drawter is a great tool for novices to create a site's layout with proper HTML or for pros to conceptualize a site's potential layout. However if you can't live without pixel prefect positioning, come prepared with some patience and mouse dexterity. Snap to grid would surely be a welcome feature in future versions of this handy tool.
