  • Adactio: Journal—Erase and rewind
    The BBC it seems, refuse to learn lessons from their own history. I'm usually one to defend the BBC against a lot of the flak it gets, but this is just plain stupid. Archiving these sites should be a matter of maybe an hour's work each, at most.
  • Isotope
    Tech bollocks. JS (specifically, jQuery, my new best friend) library for doing all sorts of very nice layout/sorting tricks. Bound to be handy.
  • Woke Up, Got Out of Bed, Dragged a Comb Across My Head – morning routine food | Ask MetaFilter
    I have been reflecting of late that I could do with adjusting my morning routine a bit. A lot of what's in here is moderately standard hippy crap, but the annoying thing is that I know quite a lot of it works, if one sticks to it. So I should probably get on that.
  • To us, it’s an obscure shift of tax law. To the City, it’s the heist of the century
    If you live in the UK, stop what you're doing and read this, assuming you haven't already. This is somewhere between absurd and terrifying, and I simply don't understand how anyone in Cameron's position can contemplate it. Well, I do, but the only way it makes sense to me is active malice and contempt for other people, which is a motivation I find hard to ascribe to any human being.
