Nah, sorry, I’ve got a duck though

There were plans to post this earlier, but they never eventuated into reality. Which is totally fine. Just see what we have in here to make up for it. Or don’t. Right now, it’s not a big deal.

In here today we have links that range around hacking and the law, the concept of irony, online privacy, combining the two most popular games of the year, ladies wearing cream, stills from movie sets, clothing humour, a new take on movie posters, ecological technologies, wearable surveillance, mapping fiction, encrypted emails, fortune telling, pornographer revelations, virtual card games, playing asteroids in real life, frustration leads to anger and not the dark side, and bionic implants making a difference for everyone. Sit down and eat up:

I know! How amazing is this!

Well, there goes another week. It’s a touch absurd really. No matter how much you try to get things done beforehand, the weekend creeps on. All inexorable like. Whatever.

There’s a lot of stuff following this bit of drivel: a whole panoply of interesting and boring, of fantastical and mundane. And maybe there will be a magic show afterwards to which all these fancy words actually apply. Maths, pachyderms, holes, statues, cakes, racing, slavery, medicine, movies, fools, installations, foretellings, advice, communications, automatons, questions, developers, and extra-terrestrial life — it’s all in here, so dive in and eat up:

I backed the Kickstarter

Once again it’s a long slog between. Not too long, but not short enough. Plans are made and plans are discarded. It’s what life does when it interferes in people living.

This post has been plumped somewhat sufficiently to make up for it though: fashion, motor vehicles, video games, animated entertainment, world friendly energy, photography, digital art, gaming hardware, surveillance [like always], cyberpunk, music parodies, 3d printing, astronomy, astrology, girls of the female persuasion, robotics, life advice, and more I’m sure I’ve not covered in that brief run down. There’s not as much humour, but enjoy it anyway:

And one final one because this is how all proper-thinking people feel about it:

Because of my baby’s medical bills

It’s St Patrick’s Day here and everywhere else around the world: Guinness, green/orange, leprechauns, clover leafs, bad accents, the lot. So here’s something to do while you’re recovering from a bad case of the regrets later.

Horoscopes, urban tourism games, paper art, speakers and more speakers, the meaning of life, a meeting of the keykeepers, wearable tech and new-tech fashion and accessories, thermodynamics, fruit pie electronics, personal computer security ideas, celebrity interviews [well, only one, and that from a few years back], the Scottish play, robot in space, porn shame, console controllers and more! So drink up and celebrate with everyone else:

Once more, apologies for the final link there. It may absorb your soul [and time] ever so slowly.
[And maybe there'll be some actual Pattie's Day links to post by next time.]

Nah, let’s put it back

This post has been sitting here for a few days waiting to be published. It’s probably about time for that, right?

Old links are old and scattered amongst their aging remains are lots of art links. There are also bits and pieces about 3d printers, brain scanners, bad breakers, bays of pirates, love poems, the spooky dark web, a cover of a hit, some MMO, science that didn’t and does work, hackers going after your toilets, how violence is good for you, conscious decisions, astral futures, strong characters and at least one honeypot that backfired.
