default Playing with sand on the internet. :)

Post by Rivershine on Thu Aug 14, 2008 1:42 am

I found a new internet toy to waste time with. Click on the little box in the upper left hand corner of the screen for a few simple instructions, and then have fun. And, er...waste time! I know I did. Very Happy

Ooooh, I like this little game. I love to doodle and this fits nicely.

quite amusing ... I love getting artistic with this sort of thing.

I found that you can "print screen" and paste it into paint, where it can be saved on your computer.

I found the gallery where you can see where others sent in their "art".

I have a couple there. The lastest sand doodle was under "j" from yesterday, I think.

hmmm...mine is no longer on the front page. Which one is yours?

I submitted a few things under my online name. But you'd probably never see it though; you'd have to wade through several hundred pages. By the way, if you go to the gallery and click 'most viewed', you won't believe what you'll see there! There's a portrait of Che that is incredible!

This is really cool Jess. The gallery is impressive.
Another creative outlet. I need to figure out how it works first, but that is often half the fun.

Hey guys. I've been playing on this is sand lately, so I decided to resurrect this old thread.

Here are some things I've done:

Lol, thanks for reviving this thread; it's been awhile since I played with the site....kind of like virtual zen sand gardens.

Nice compositions!

I'm revising this as the link still works. It's pretty fun in a relaxing way.

One of my blocker app's won't give me anymore than a blank page.

Not interested in why, but thought those using the site might want to delve a little deeper into the site ownership, such as via whois database and what not.

All you see is a blank grey page with a little square in the top left corner. You need to click on it.
