Love Africa Wallpaper 1280px X 800px

I was playing with Photoshop & some photos I found using Google Images, to make a wallpaper with the theme Africa. I made it for a friend, but there's no harm to share it with the world, I guess :-) Enjoy!

Build Tolerance Through Education

Inspired by a quote from The Deen Show : Through education, we're building tolerance.

What sort of Book is this that leaves neither a small nor a big thing, but has recorded it

And the Book (one's Record) will be placed (in the right hand for a believer in the Oneness of Allâh, and in the left hand for a disbeliever in the Oneness of Allâh), and you will see the Mujrimûn (criminals, polytheists, sinners), fearful of that which is (recorded) therein. They will say: "Woe to us! What sort of Book is this that leaves neither a small thing nor a big thing, but has recorded it with numbers!"

Download: Twitter Bird Vector Icon & TwitterU Font

I'm not a Twitter fan & still don't see a personal use for it. I decided though, for one of the websites I manage, to follow the webmasters trend & endow the site with a Twitter button. I needed two things: a Twitter bird & the font used in the Twitter logo.

For the font, I googled & found not the exact font, but one similar in this Japanese website . The font is called TwitterU. Downloads • The vector image of the bird: Saved in EPS 8 format, which makes it compatible with most vector editing programs: Download Link • The TwitterU font: Note that it contains no capital letters (just like the Twitter logo): Download Link ( Disclaimer: I don't take credit for the image above, I'm giving the vector trace as a freebie for those who want to use it to link to the website.
