  2. Week 361

    Catching up on weeknotes after a holiday and procrastination.



  1. 750 Words

    Nice idea, from the afore-linked Buster Benson. Write 750 words a day, privately, online, to get your creative juices flowing.

    A nice data-rich “summary of now” homepage. (via @tomcoates)

  3. Burn - Home

    Really nice and easy Mac app for burning files to different kinds of disc. Also, free. (via Infovore)

    Wasn't going to get Red Dead Redemption immediately, but my friends have. I feel like the kid in the playground wearing the wrong trainers.

    Just noticed that for four days in 1987 I wrote my diary in runes from Lord of the Rings. #helloiamageek

    @timd If someone on the walk says "The air smells so fresh out here!" then it's a ramble.

    Favourite new (to me) word from the world of outdoors equipment: Ramblesack. Bigger than a daysack, smaller than a rucksack. "Ramblesack"

    Pleased to see on Dr Who that Rory colours in the North Face logo on his clothes. I do the same, but his is better than my Sharpie attempt.

    @chrislunch What's wrong with The Field Mice?! I'm going to have to look for the Drums now.
