Paralympics 2008 – where do our paralympians come from?

paralympic medal map

How great are our paralympic athletes? Their efforts at the Beijing Paralympics have been incredible. Their stories, hardships and sacrifices have been at times heartbreaking, but more often inspirational.

In short, it’s been very good.

Further to Supernifty’s map of Olympics medallists, Supernifty is proud to announce a similar deal for the Paralympics medallists.

Using this map, you can see where all our local heroes hail from. If you’re considering setting up a tickertape parade, rock concert or air-force flyover in their honour, this is a chance to check that you are in the right town.

OK, so that last paragraph was sheer silliness.

But you should check out where our Beijing Paralympics medallists come from.

The map will be updated daily as more medals are won, until the conclusion of the games, so feel free to check it frequently.

Musical Instrument Tuner for Java Enabled Mobiles

Mobile Instrument Tuner

I’m pleased to announce the release of Audio Tuner for Java enabled mobiles, version 0.3. If you have a Java enabled mobile, e.g. Nokia or Sony, or most other recent mobiles, this means you. Now you can tune your musical instrument wherever you are.

OK, so this is an alpha release. And unfortunately, Supernifty doesn’t have a Java enabled phone to test against. If you try it out, please provide feedback.

Alternatively, if anyone has a mobile they’d like to donate or sell to Supernifty for testing purposes, please get in touch. There are apparently zillions of unused mobiles lying useless in drawers, awaiting such an opportunity.

If you like the idea of testing for money, check out Test Army. It’s a new Supernifty project, and it’s nearing beta. There’ll be tests available, and money to be earnt, in the near future.

But, in the meantime, try out the new audio tuner, and let Supernifty know if it works.
