Images, favicons and some text

When searching for images for my blogs I use Flickr Creative Commons (free if source is given) and iStockphoto where you buy the right to use images.

For more sources, see 100 (Legal) Sources for Free Stock Images.

A favicon (also known as a website icon, shortcut icon, url icon, or bookmark icon) is a 16×16 pixel square icon associated with a particular website or webpage. I use FavIcon from Pics to create my favicons, the service is free and easy to use.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Great when you are more focused on looks than text content andd simply want “filler text” for testing something.

Life is back

I use iStockphoto for images and get their Tip of the Week. Today it says:

LIFE and Getty Images, the two most recognized names in photography, have created so you can access millions of breathtaking photographs — for free. lets you wander through the legendary LIFE and Getty archives, and with more than 3,000 new photos added every day, it also gives you the best pictures of people and places shaping our world.

I have taken a look at the new LIFE – Your World in Pictures and it looks very promising.

Einstein in Aarau

Albert Einstein once went to school in Aarau in Switzerland. Nowadays there is a restaurant named EINSTEIN. It is a really nice place with café, bar and restaurant.

There was a big plastic statue of Albert E outside, probably only temporary.

Compare the size with the house behind the statue, his head is at the second floor.
