For today, we have http://www.ambient-mixer.com, a white noise generating website for writers who like their noise with a bit more of a specific atmosphere than rain or oceans (although these are probably available). It has offerings like Gryffindor Common Room, and In Rivendell, and a number of "ambient categories" to choose from. It also allows you to create your own sound mix. Perfect for those who are tired of pretending they're in a coffee shop.
Today's is a useful tool for putting up links to Amazon. ASIN.info allows you to enter the ASIN or Amazon link to your eBook and it will take the user to their local Amazon site.

For today, here's an article on writing fantasy creatures from earlier this year: Gender Determination in Fantasy Creatures. This is a guest post by entomologist Robinne Weiss over at Dan Koboldt's blog. It turns out even some normal earthly creatures sort out their biological sex in weird and wonderful ways.

If all else fails, I guess you could prop up a table leg with it.
