Book CrossingI feel a flurry of links coming on in a post St Patrick's Day "I'm staying in tonight and never going out drinking again" fest - well until Thursday when I'm off out with Andy after work. Ooops.

First up Book Crossing an ingenious scheme that encourages you to release books you have read into the wild and then track their progress from owner to owner. Rather a nice idea and has great potential for freeing up some of my shelf space. I Wish I'd done this with my copy of High Fidelity which was posted missing in action over 3 years ago - I wonder where it is now.

Ps. I also have some photos of the St Patrick's celebrations which I might post depending on how they look when I review them.

When it comes to techie manuals my preference has always been for the animal covered O'Reilly series still it's sad to see the reported demise of Wrox who take up a fair portion of my bookshelf.

4K PongClassic pong in just 4Kb. It's a two player game - use keys [Q] and [A] for player one and [P] and [L] for player two. Hosted at ShockHaber which I don't understand but it seems worth-while browsing.

Answer the questions about a walk through the woods to find out all about your personality. I hold no truck with this kind of thing - especially given what some of my answsers were meant to reveal.

Cat CarStunningly simple but cute game. Collect the kittens in your wheelbarrow by traversing the narrow paths - it's the modern equivalent of one of those games where you guide the metal loop down a wire without trying to touch it - although I seem to be much better at this.

The Budget Traveller's Guide to Sleeping in Airports - very comprehensive and fairly accurate as far I can gather from my somewhat limited experience of this - trying to sleep in Narita airport was described to a tee.

Looking to invest to secure your future? Look no further than the time travel fund: "We establish a fund in current time. You make a small contribution to the fund, and in a few hundred years that small amount grows to a very large amount. From that fund, moneys will be taken and used to retrieve you, perhaps seconds after you join, perhaps even moments before your recorded death, perhaps some other point in your lifetime."

Photolog
I finally got my act together yesterday and took my digital camera out for a little test run so I've decided to kick off my photolog.

Conclusion No 1 : I need to practice a lot and preferably get some proper lessons - I'm clueless when it comes to compositions and the like. Some of my best ideas looked awful in picture and I just binned them. The trouble is where can I find classes that fit around my work schedule? Anyway I'll have to work this one out or perhaps i'll settle for practice, practice, practice.

Conclusion No 2 : I feel like a real prat stopping and taking pictures all around London. I feel like wearing a t-shirt that says "I am NOT a tourist". Still I think this is more to do with my personality than anything else and i'll just have to get over it.

PisI think this game's name, Pis, must lose something in the journey from Danish into English - at least I hope so. Anyway this is your basic target shooting game with the added distraction of someone called John Schmidt shouting at you in Danish. The slightly surreal feel is also heightened in level one where you are attacked with petrol bombs and bricks - fair enough - but also catapults. Hardly international terrorist weaponery I would have thought - but what would I know? Perhaps the UN are hunting down all the catapults and any young boys with a striking resemblance to Dennis The Menance in Iraq even as we speak.
