Hi there,

As you well may be able to tell, this blog is currently defunct and is no longer being updated.
I’m leaving it up here as I occasionally have to sift through it to find this article on fixing my keyboard layout in OS 10.

I keep telling myself that I’ll archive this and revive it all, but know deep inside that it’s probably not going to happen, and that I’d rather write the more intimate things things down with a pen and paper.

Thanks for swinging by, and do check out the book and the hackfest.

I found this little gem through Venkat Subramaniam and company's blog on development on OS X: Nocturne is a Mac app that acts like a night vision mode that provides some super snazzy high-contrast for those times when you need it most (to save power, or in bright situations, etc.).

As seen on Reddit: (SFW) pictures of people's first reactions to goatse (if you don't know, don't look. There is such thing as knowledge that should not be sought.)
(As seen on Drawn!) Letterpress and its results never fail to make my mouth water: (According to Creative Techs, this documentary was made by Chuck Kraemer, and originally posted in DesignGeek. More about Firefly Press in Somerville, MA here.)
(I think this was a few clicks away from a Hack A Day post.) Behold! A singing Tesla coil!
I woke up a little earlier than the rest of the house this morning and had some time to trawl through my rss feeds, which yielded this little gem of a find from metacool: my dream kindergarten [as reported by Monacle].

Here's a little Canadian rock from the Joel Plaskett Emergency (as heard on an old CBC Radio 3 podcast I found the other day):

A pretty snazzy ad for Renault:
I forget how I found it (probably through chronic checking of reddit and its programming section), but this post-mortem of a webapp called Jonkenpon by a guy named Yong Fook is well written, entertaining and informative. Also referenced is a new project by the same guy that turns out to be really snazzy: Open Source Food — think of a dedicated Flickr on food with recipes.
