1000+ Free Textures

Everything around us has a texture – the smooth keys of a keyboard, the soft cotton of a t-shirt, the bumpy surface of leather on an office chair. In design, it’s important to include texture in a work to make it look more realistic.
For painters or even print design, this can be done in the physical with the use of different brush strokes or certain paper and ink; however, it is usually necessary for graphic designers to synthesise these textures to get a similar effect.
Many artists choose to use photographs or pre-made textures in their designs. Below are several texture resources with hundreds of free textures for your use. Enjoy!

Project management 101

The Sith Lord Darth Vader, of Star Wars fame, often gets a bad rap, particularly in what we all think of as his ‘dark years.’
From a certain perspective his mass murder, brutal oppression, and frequent deception to serve his own ends makes him seem like a pretty bad guy. But if you look past all that to his action, you will find a very capable and effective project manager.
In the name of finding silver linings in dark clouds, I’d like to present the top 10 reasons why Darth Vader was amazing with his project management.

Battlefield 3 simulator

This is a world first. A unique FPS simulator that turns gaming into reality as you move, aim, fire and get shot within a 360-degree immersive environment.

Using a pre-release copy of Battlefield 3 and a team of top technology experts from across Europe we’ve built a truly one of a kind simulator.

Centred on the world’s first, portable omni-directional treadmill (designed by Swedish company MSE Weibull) the simulator lets you control the movements of a Battlefield 3 character with your own body. Other key technology employed includes: 12 paintball markers that allow the player, in real time, to feel the enemy gunfire experienced in the game; a wireless gun system; ambient LED lighting; and an Xbox Kinect camera hack.

The full Gadget Show episode premieres in the UK on Monday 24th October 2011 at 8pm on Channel 5.

See the Magic Of Google Plus

Here is a great bit of advise for any and all Google Plus users.

Reshared post from +Amanda Blain

*Want To See the Magic Of Google Plus*?

Follow these simple 3 Steps… anyone who actually does this can not EVER say Google plus is dead… or “I don’t get it”.. I dare ya.

1) Circle at least 25 People. These will probably be people you don’t know. Get Over that. Suggested users no good? Type whatever search word you are interested in, in that lovely “search google+” box at the top there. Circle at least 25 people up.. but more is obviously better. 100 is golden.

2) Make sure you have a Profile photo, something in your about me section and make at LEAST 1 public post… Go do it. Right now.

3) The most important step – Go through your stream and write a comment of some kind on every single post that you even kind of, sort of find interesting. Try and do something better that “lol” or “yeah” but honestly those can be ok too. Watch the video they posted, click on the link and make a comment or comment on another commenter’s comments. Share something you really like. Mention someone. Google+ is about Interaction Repeat step 3 daily for best results.

Sit back and watch the magic of Google Plus happen for you.
