Free Rice

Tags: ,

If your bored and feeling charitable then I have the game for you :)  It’s called “Free rice” and by playing simple math and english games you can donate rice to feed starving people in less fortunate areas of the world.  For every question you answer right you they will donate 10 grains of rice.

The money for the rice is provided by sponsors whose names appear after you have answered a question correctly.  So what re you waiting for?  Waste a little time and give a little rice :)

Find Icons

Tags: ,

This is a really nice resource I found for free icons.  They have over 200 thousand icons that you can use.  Not all have commercial licenses, but a lot do.  They’ve got just about every kind of icon you might need, for social networking, e-mail, user interfaces.  So next time I need some icons I think I’ll stop on by :)

I’m currently using this set for my social media icons: http://findicons.com/pack/2052/social_network

Free Stock

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Free stock photography can great great for low-budget or…no-budget projects.  In a lot of cases you get what you pay for, but there’s some really nice shots hidden in there too.  Some resources that I like to use are:

I contribute to stock exchange myself. Also, if you’re looking for textures you’ll have a much easier time finding some free resources.  There’s a lot of different texture websites out there, but my favorite so far is:

A few more that have some restrictions:
