PIC Pong
Rickard's electronic projects page includes much too much cool stuff. A game system based on a microcontroller that generates NTSC video right out of the chip and runs Pong and Tetris; SX-based color video; mechanically-scanned LED displays (again, with Pong, Tetris, a clock, and a reader-board). Oh glory!

The Tao of Mac - HOWTO/Switch To The Mac

Not just a switcher's guide, this article seems to have reached many of the important conclusions that I have. It reads in a few minutes, though, whereas I have reached them off and on over the course of a year. Also, it has reached conclusions on things I have no opinion on. Probably worth checking those out, n'est pas?

Avesta conlang
Avesta is one of the more interesting conlangs I've come across in a long time. It merits a careful, front-to-back reading, and then a rereading, neither of which have I really got time for at the moment. No, really, one of the most interesting since Tepa. And with a sketch of a religious-minority conculture and two beautiful and plausible writing systems, to boot.

Analog Robotics
Now fortified with emergent behaviors! These simply-conceived robots look like a most clever way to get interesting things to happen. Must read more.

Unitarian Jihad is coming!

'...We will take over television studios, kidnap so-called commentators and broadcast calm, well-reasoned discussions of the issues of the day. We will not try for "balance" by hiring fruitcakes; we will try for balance by hiring non-ideologues who have carefully thought through the issues. We are Unitarian Jihad. We will appear in public places and require people to shake hands with each other...'

Dreaming about Ukraine again ...

ASAP Tickets and a real-estate office ASAP Tickets and a real-estate office ASAP Tickets and a real-estate office have aided and abetted my mad reveries. Find a little piece of land, maybe in Zhuravnyky, or somewhere near Kamianka-Buzka, buy a little hut, wait out the worst of it as India and China bring on the peak-oil crisis a lot sooner than expected and the U.S. remains in denial until it's too late to build enough nuclear, plant a nice little garden, raise some sheep ... you know how it goes.
