Yesterday I created one for the natural sciences that I've called Science Fun. And there's a lot of stuff that physicists, chemists, biologists etc will love to get. Some is side-splittingly funny and kids learning science in school will love some of the jokes.
Anything that spreads an appreciation of science has got to be a Good Thing and humour is as good a way as any :)
If you know any good science jokes, do share them in the comments. I think my all time favourite goes like this:
Two atoms walking down the street when one stops suddenly and exclaims "Damn, I think I've lost an electron!" The other one says "Are you sure?". "Yes, I'm POSITIVE!"
If you're curious how I'm creating these boutiques, here's the low-down.
I'm using a mash-up of MS Access, ZazMySite (special edition just for this mashup) and a macro for pressing ZMS's buttons.
MS Access spits out Page Option Panel Settings files. These POPS are the ones that ZazMySite uses (in conjunction with a web page template) to create a web page.
Each web page contains a product grid filled with designs and types of product set up in MS Access and therefore present in each POPS.
The macro drives ZazMySite:
- it opens the first POPS file
- pulls products from Zazzle according to the criteria in the POPS file
- fills in the page template with the pulled product grid (and other stuff like page title, menus etc also present in the POPS file)
- saves the generated web page
- opens the next POPS file and repeats from 2
I leave it to crack on while I do other chores around the house. A great balance and the housework gets done a little more promptly!
