Well, you had to do without a
Boing Boing: Couple spends 28.5 years repainting baseball, now 119″ circumference – You do have to ask yourself why…
DIY Metal Chess Figures – oh so pretty! I didn’t get a new chess set for Christmas this year (despite dropping hints the size of that big painted baseball). Perhaps I can make myself one like this to make up for the lack?
A Consuming Experience:
turquoise & diamond quartz stone chunky ring. So far out of my price range it might as well be on Mars, this ring is just to die for. Thanks to Kim for finding it, and other, beautiful things to look at.
BBC NEWS – Post service opens to competition. This is NOT, I repeat NOT an excuse to send your post, business or otherwise, via
Working at the PC Isn’t So Lonely Anymore – New York Times. I have one or two issues with the tone of this article, mainly the one that bit that implies this piece of software does something new.

ThinkGeek :: Set Of Circuitboard Coasters. I never understood coasters until I had to live in rented accommodation with a Nazi-in-training landlord who’s pet hate was water marks. Coasters became my new best friend. Even now, when it’s my own furniture I’m trashing, I still find myself using coasters. (There is no hope for me, I will end up the little old cat lady). My inner geek is thinking that these pretties are really rather, well, pretty!
