  1. Cool Tool: Adventure Cycling

    The woman cycling across the USA on the Saturday Guardian’s Travel section back page has got me intrigued…

  2. - Soviet Music

    Lots of free Soviet MP3s. Hear a choir sing (apparently) ‘Capital Oppresses Us’ and other family favourites. Also, speeches and lots of Soviet posters.

  3. Understand - a novelette by Ted Chiang

    Webb recommended this to Coates and it sounds interesting but I hate reading on the screen so maybe I’ll never get round to reading it even so. (via Plasticbag)

  4. Learning Movable Type: A Safe Way to Upgrade to MT 3.3

    In the increasingly unlikely event that I can face upgrading, this will be handy. One day I’ll escape the computer.

  5. Create a Timeline : My Timelines

    Create a timeline from an RSS feed. Not sure how useful it is, but might be interesting for something.

  6. Scout: Find your photographs in Flickr’s Explore

    Read between the ads to find the form that lets you see whether/where your photos appear in Flickr’s magical Explore pages.

  7. MT Hacks FastSearch

    PHP-based replacement for Movable Type’s generally inadequate in-built search tool.

  8. Dicewars - Flash game

    Neatly done, time-wasting Risk-like online game. Must. Resist. (via Haddock)

  9. GogglesBeta09.swf

    Server problems mean I’m probably the last person to link to this. Still fun. (via Haddock)

  10. Bikely - Discover and share your favorite bicycle routes

    People sharing bike routes in different cities/countries. Using Google Maps. Interesting to see which way people go. (via Blackbeltjones)

  11. The New York Review of Books: Progressive but Not Liberal

    I love stuff like this - moralism, justice, etc. But I can rarely concentrate enough to understand it fully. Subscribers only.
