  1. Three web widgets

    Three generally unnecessary JavaScripty things that you’ll probably never need, but they’re pretty good solutions if you do.

  3. Essex signposts and milestones

    A great site of photos of signposts and milestones around Essex. No, it’s interesting.

  13. Birkenstock

    The Guardian’s lack of research, Birkenstock’s new range of shoes, and my fashion dilemmas.

  14. Getting there, slowly…

    Six months in and only 3,000 or so days left to go with Pepys’ Diary. At current rates…
