Weblog entries for 11 January 2005

Mac mini
Wow. Take your existing keyboard, mouse and monitor and plug them into this tiny machine. Prices start at £339. So now what's your excuse for not getting a Mac?

SmartDeck — cassette adapter for iPod

Tall Persons Club GB & Ireland
“… dedicated to providing information for and promoting the interests of tall people.” Finally!

Resignation speeches and letters from throughout the 20th century.
