  1. The Online Photographer: Open Mike: Photo Essay (Part I)

    I love this photo essay of Mike Johnston getting a reconditioned pool table installed. So much skill and attention to detail. Also, it makes me wish I was there with them all, hanging out, chatting. I could happily read this site even if it never mentioned photography.

    All those nice functions for generating URLs that save having to manually change links? I’m just manually changing all the function names.

    Jeremy Hunt's right. Health tourism's rife in the NHS. They come over here, empty our bedpans, nurse our relatives, treat our sick. Shocking
