Dang! Can I have mine in a different colour?

Ben: either you didn't play with it or you're carping.

Tilt: thanks. :smile:

Everyone: if you liked that, you will probably like http://htwins.net/scale2/ ... although you may choose to turn off the mildly irritating 'cosmic' music.

Thanks Tilt. Makes being human seem SO insignificant.

I couldn't watch yours, Kim. Have to upgrade my Adobe.

With metta,
Chris

No thunder stolen. It is simply looking at two very different scales: time and size.

By the way, I am delighted to discover Gomez's Hamburger.

Thanks. Fun stuff.

Yes that's what my friend said actually Tilt when he saw both, they're complimentary :)

Lemme guess... is everyone getting excited over a dark blank screen save for tiny Twitter & FB icons on the bottom left side?
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

I think I've just had my religious experience for the day.
Thank you, plwk!

Hi, Chris,
You can see it on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaGEjrADGPA. The original lets you choose how fast you zoom around, though, while all you can do on the video version is pause to look at it, then restart.

:coffee:
