We’re so excited it’s the middle of April already!!! We’d also love to be excited about what you send us! We’re doing a slight play on our normal send us something where you send us something via postal mail. Instead, we’d like you to take a picture of something really awesome and email it to us. We’ll compile all the submissions and write about them the first week of June so feel free to make submissions until JUNE 1, 2012.

Send us:

I won a MacBook… and other adventures of the Geek Girl

Every few weeks, someone at my university emails students and asks them to answer a survey about some campus services and programs. Since I use the library all the time, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to fill out the online survey. At the end, it asked for my email address if I wanted to enter to win a MacBook. I filled it out, and forgot all about it until yesterday, when someone emailed me and said, “You won a MacBook.”

Listen to Web Radio at Work with TinyWebRadio

TinyWebRadio is a small, portable music player for your USB drive, so you can enjoy hearing your favorite internet stations at work or where ever you may be.


The developer considers the program to be pretty self-explanatory, but I do think it is worth mentioning that the software is free, it is easy to use, and there are only really two directions:

  • Right-click on a station in the preset-list to add it to the favorites
  • Right-click on the filelist in “My Recordings” to bring up a menu

Add TinyWebRadio to your USB drive and enjoy web radio at work!
