  1. LRB · Richard J. Evans · The Wonderfulness of Us

    I’m finding this discussion (the article and many letters below it) about how history should be taught in British schools interesting, although I’ve lost track of exactly who thinks what.

  2. JavaScript Garden

    A good run-through of some of JavaScript’s tricky bits, a lot like Crockford’s ‘JavaScript: The Good Parts’. I still don’t get prototypes etc though. (via Cal)

    Paperback books aren't quite inconvenient enough compared to ebooks. I know, we should still sell hardbacks! #notbuyingabookiwant

    Ugh, Thatcher trapped me! I thought there was something past her but no, I was left standing near her frozen form. Need fresh air.

    @dotcode Very occasionally Measure It. That's it for webdev. Not sure what else would be useful. Have hardly used FF for years.

    The statue of Thatcher in the Guildhall Art Gallery scares me. I'm having to summon all powers to walk past, fearing it will come alive.

    @dotcode I only use Safari these days. Its dev stuff is pretty much like Firebug (not sure what/if the differences are).
