YSK you can send images on Twitter via Direct Messages

Twitter's Direct Message.

Today Tweetdeck updated with a new awesome feature: You can now send images via Direct Messages, and according to a friend, this is also possible from the iOS Twitter app, but so far is not possible from Twitter’s site.

I have no idea how iOS added this feature, but here’s how to add images using Tweetdeck.

Let’s hope twitter adds this feature soon. Sounds great.

YSK Google can tell you the list of songs of an album

Another quick note. This is an old Google trick that is practically useless, but still, if you use the format:

Artist AlbumName tracklist

The “Artist” part is optional and useful if there are two albums with the same name from different artists. The result will be this:

tracklist

You can use tracklist, track list, or song list.

Batman: The Deal - A fan-made comic

YSK there is an online version of CAH (Cards Against Humanity)

Anyway, for those who can get the physical version of the game called Pretend you’re Xyzzy. This game is completely made in JavaScript, so you don’t need to install anything.

Cards against humanity.

The site lists two servers that you can use to play against other players. You’ll be able to select your nickname and join or create a game. It’s very simple, and even has a chat that it’s barely used.

In case you don’t know how to play the game, these are the rules:

To start the game, each player draws ten white "answer" cards. One randomly chosen player begins as the Card Czar, and plays a black "question" card. The Card Czar reads the question out to the group. Each player answers the question by passing one white "answer" card, face down, to the Card Czar. The Card Czar shuffles all of the answers, reads them out loud in a humorous fashion, and picks their favorite. Whoever played that answer gets to keep the Black Card as one Awesome Point. After each round, a new player becomes the Card Czar, and every player draws back up to ten cards
