Interesting. I just found out that I share my birthday with Tim Allen, Malcolm McDowell, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, James Maxwell, and William Butler Yeats, among others. Hmm...comic guy, creepy guy, cute girls, computational guy, and compositional guy...
Anyway, check out your own B-Day info here.
323 B.C. - Alexander the Great dies
1373 - World's oldest treaty signed (Anglo-Portuguese Treaty of Allaince)
1892 - Basil Rathbone born
So let's see - a conqueror, a concord, and a clue-meister. Cool!
Very cool pictures of colored smoke - I'm not sure how they were taken, but they're nice. Would make good background images for your desktop.
On second thought and with more perusal, check out the entire site of The pictures are amazing! I especially love the macro work with hoverflies. I never knew they were so colorful!
The Birds of Prey page is incredible also. The whole site actually - just browse around and have fun on it.

If you have the bandwidth to handle a 60 meg download, this is a great little animation short (Rockfish) by BLUR. You'd be surprised to learn how much they do in the industry. Check them out.
