  1. The First Year of Frames

    I completely forgot sites used to offer the choice of “Frames or No Frames”.

  2. Olduse

    Brilliant. A 30-year delayed “live” archive of Usenet. I must remember to come back when it reaches 1995. (via Tom Taylor)

  3. Html2text: THE ASCIINATOR (aka html2txt)

    Turns a web page into Markdown-formatted ASCII. (via Preoccupations)

  4. Poor Yorick Entertainment

    Posters, graphics etc created for all the movies, brands, etc in ‘Infinite Jest’. Lovely. I assume it’ll be a book at some point… (via Kottke)

    @FinalBullet @gwire '"Dr. Who"'?

    @FinalBullet As if his stupid name wasn't confusing enough!

    @FinalBullet What?! It's the name of a telly programme, and Twitter doesn't do italics or <cite> tags. Mustn't let standards slip!

    I think I'm getting old. I found 'Doctor Who' and the Apple keynote equally confusing.

    @janetgyford It wasn’t role-playing. It was a playground-type game with rules, and forfeits for mistakes.

    @janetgyford No irony intended! It *sounded* like EastEnders, but I still had no idea of what the rules were.

    Dazed by unexplained lack of sleep, unreasonable back ache, unwarranted rain, unending project. Unmonday.

    Imagining #WWDC as an episode of the Jeremy Kyle show. Instapaper, RTM, Spotify invited on. Not told why.
