  1. How to Backup Your DVD Movies

    Excellent screencast on how to back up DVDs on your Mac. (via Daring Fireball)

  2. Xmas card shoot :o) - a photoset on Flickr

    Sam’s very good and scary Christmas photos.

  3. YouTube - A Charlie Brown Christmas (full length)

    Joy! I love the internet and I now feel Christmassy. And I think Charlie Brown grows up to become Jon Ronson.

  4. Interviewing the man behind The Wire. - By Meghan O’Rourke - Slate Magazine

    Interesting interview. Sees the show “as a 66-hour movie” and “a Greek tragedy, but instead of the gods being petulant and jealous Olympians hurling lightning bolts down at our protagonists, it’s the Postmodern institutions that are the gods” (via Kottke)

  5. ColourLovers Coup.0 :: Colour Lovers

    Odd but interesting and useful site for sharing colour palettes, marred only by over-busy design and annoying Flash. (via Haddock)

  6. Writers Dreamtools - Decades - 1650

    Guide to what was happening in different fields in consecutive decades through history. Good if you ignore that knowledge changes with geography and social position. (via Kottke)

  7. MemoryMiner - Digital Storytelling Software - Downloads

    Really nice Mac application for organising photos from your past around people and places. (via Haddock)
