Merry Christmas! We're all busy stuffing ourselves and groaning contentedly here so there's nothing much to report, except that I've added a page of links to Essential Windows Freebies for you all. Have a nice holiday.

The Huh? Corporation has captured beautifully the essence of slick marketing-led e-business. Brilliantly funny.

You can tell Christmas is coming - every time I get hot, Jesus appears!

This is the time of the year when everyone and his sister is putting up [Thing] Of The Year 2004 lists. I quite enjoy looking at some of these, just to see if stuff is cropping up that I might be interested in but haven't heard of. The only downside is hunting them all down, and now I don't have to; someone is collecting them all in one handy place. That's me lost to the web for a week or so.

The Pogues are touring again, and the Guardian has an excellent interview with the man himself, Shane MacGowan.

Toes. Lots of toes. Faintly disturbing, but in a nice way.

Time for a few links from the Department of Looking Stuff Up. First we have a Dictionary of Measures, Units, and Conversions that seems terrifyingly complete, thne a fascinating Index of Expressions and Sayings for those "what the hell is he on about?" moments. For a different style (it's not really light reading) the Dictionary of the History of Ideas is a superb site and a fine way to lose a few hours and confuse yourself thoroughly. Lastly there is the Free On-Line Dictionary Of Computing at Imperial College, where we can learn about the universal interrogative particle.

Can you find the hidden pictures? I actually did pretty well at this, but I can't really claim any credit; I'm sure my brain is better at finding the incongruous element in a photograph than it is at spotting a dozen tiny drawings of a banana in a larger drawing of a farmyard scene. Still, the hidden elements in the photos have been done nicely, which is reason enough for a link.
