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.]

The Joker discovered snapchat.

Well, this is not overdoing it at all, right? Three posts in just over a week or something. Perhaps this is the new this. Whatever this is.

This time around we have less webcomics and more technology. Lots of fun things to learn about and be afraid. Inbetween the start and the finish you’ll find all sorts of different topics — robots, consoles, names, streams, heroin, amputees, burglars, tornadoes, doctors, consoles, ships, cells, fans, codes, foretelling, stupid, deletions, repeats, forms, board games, aerosol, grummles, consoles, and [400!] babies. We’ll start with some things about 3D printers, and end with a piece on lysdexia. Dive in and get yourself messy:
