Today’s Links (22/10/08)
- Art review: Richard Forster | Ruth Claxton - Scotland on Sunday
- Choosy - A smarter default browser for Mac OS X
‘Forget the Ã¢â¬Ëdefault browserÃ¢â¬â¢, Choosy lets you open links in the browser you want. Just set up a few simple options and Choosy will do the right thing, whether that’s opening a browser or letting you pick from some or all of the browsers on your system.’ Great little utility.
- The Snow Queen
The Arches Christmas play, written by Megan, directed by Al (and I think Guy is doing the sound design too).
- Easy Lifestreaming with SimplePie
- Atheist Campaign
Campaign to put nice adverts for atheism on London buses, reading ‘There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.’. (They raised ten times their original fundraising target on the first day!)
- dotmac - Google Code
A version of .Mac you host yourself - data sync, iDisk, Backup all work apparently. Doesn’t look too fiddly to install on a machine running Linux (you have to patch Apache, install a bunch of Perl modules) but there’s no easy way of installing. If they get that sorted, this could be really popular.
- Riddley Walker Annotations
- Savoy Records: Heroes
I did not know that PJ Proby recorded a rendition of The Waste Land backed with a VarÃÂ¨se composition. Now that I do, I must own it!
- Lexical Analysis of 2008 US Presidential and Vice-Presidiential Debates - Who’s the Windbag?
- albam - clothes
Interesting brand: plain and simple, mostly made in the UK, kind of Margaret Howell-ish.
- Black Bird Fly(BBF-ブラックバードフライ)
A gorgeous plastic-bodied TLR that shoots medium format-style square images on 35mm film. Looks like you can only get them in Japan, sadly.
