5 short links for today #23

1. Test drive Windows 7 in your browser: Test Drive lets you try out new features of Windows 7 through your browser using a virtual test-drive environment. All you need to do is fire up Internet Explorer and open this link. You can test the new taskbar, libraries feature, application compatibility, new security features etc. Requires Microsoft Virtual Lab browser add-on to be installed.

2. Unicode Holiday Xmas Tree: Decorate virtual Christmas trees with strange looking unicode characters like:

╬ ☁ ☂ ☃ ☄ ☎ ☏ ☔ ☠ ☢ ☣ ☤ ☥ ☬ ☭ ♛

… and send it to your friends. If your creation is unique enough your tree will find a place in it’s “Featured trees” page.

3. Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness is a gallery of strange, funny and often bizarre descriptions and diagrams found in technical books and documentation.

4. Penzu: A free private online diary with focus on privacy. It’s like a blog but private. Customize template, upload photos, easily export your diary as PDF, import posts from feeds, XML etc.

5. Papert: Remember LOGO, the computer language we learnt at school? Papert is an online LOGO compiler. Time to play with the turtle.
