Pixel Joint now has an RSS feed for the news section for all you hip cats with RSS feed readers. You can find the link at the bottom of the news section on the front page. Not sure what RSS is or how to get feeds? Check out BBC's user friendly RSS description and you'll see just how useful RSS can be. It's a bold new world my friends.
We also added a bunch of links to the member profile page. The layout could still use some love, but at least you can see people's news posts, link posts and SEARCH/FILTER a member's pixel art. The search a pixel artist gallery link is useful for browsing an artist with a larger gallery like pixelblink, iSTVAN, samson or sedgemonkey.
If you've got more ideas for improving the site keep suggesting them in the Resources and Support section of the forum and we'll try and get to them.
I love watching people embarassing themselves on camera. We all freak out once in awhile, but save it for the commercial break fella.
This choice bit found on the cool comic strip gaming site MyExtraLife.
California is on its way to outlawing online hunting and fishing popularized by the live-shot.com website. The site allows people to shoot and kill live animals remotely. Is it just me or does this seem completely sadistic? It's sad that an actual law has to be passed to prevent knuckleheads from killing animals with their mouse during their coffee break at work. Play some Minesweeper instead you redneck freaks.
I hope you kiddies savored every moment of summer break because it's over. Time to join the rest of the world toiling day by day in some neverending hamster wheel.
I've been reading a ton of commencement speeches lately -- entertaining and usually inspirational stuff. Perfect for all you kids starting a new year of school or new grads lookng to do something with their life after their last summer break. A few funny commencement speeches...
I've been trying to convince my girlfriend for years that we need to get a monkey. Maybe this video of Gizmo will convince her.
Found this great link at Also Online.
The title of the site reads "STACKOPOLIS: The most addictive game since Tetris!"
Quite a boast eh? I wouldn't exactly put it on par with Tetris, but it is a fun pixel art puzzle game with a beautiful pixel art interface.
I've seen these comic strip builders before, but this is the first one with a decent collection of objects, characters and a really easy to use interface. Really fun tools to mess around with.
Found on the always entertaining chrisdiclerico.com blog.
Edit: If you need some ideas for how to create a strip click here.

This is an interesting experiment in pixels. How many pixels does it take to recognize a superhero? Apparently 12 will do.
Attention all cartographers and explorers: your services will no longer be required.
Google Earth is no ordinary map tool... you can view 3-D maps of terrain and buildings, zoom around the world with a click of the button, save points of interest and so much more. It's a hoot.
Charlie Murphy, one of the stars of the Chappelle Show says that the show is over. A huge comedy hit flames out in just two seasons -- how the hell did that happen? It's a damn shame.
4-year old Jake, a golden retriever from San Fran, doggy-paddled his way into the record books by being the first dog to participate in the South End Rowing Club's 10th annual "Alcatraz Invitational", a 1.2 mile swim from Alcatraz to the mainland of San Francisco. Go Jake!
