Very small software for your PC. Aren't they cute?

30 articles written over 30 days to show you how to love the Opera web browser. Of course learning to love Opera takes a lot less time. That said, my continuing apologies to David for my current Opera holiday I'm taking with Firebird for reasons far too complex to go into.

How to find the really hidden files on your Windows PC. A "really hidden" file/folder is one that cannot be seen in Windows Explorer after enabling it to "show all files", and cannot be seen in MS-DOS after receiving a proper directory listing from root. Yes there's a conspiracy happening right in front of you on your PC even as you sit there reading this.

A guide to the KFC impersonating fried chicken takeaways of the Inner London area. Personal experience has shown that there really are a huge number of these especially around Streatham and Balham (but virtually every shopping street in London has one, including Borough High St., down the road from where I work. I've resisted the urge to go in).

Two newspaper related links on one day. Wednesday is news day here at lazylaces. Check out today's front page from newspapers in 39 counties around the world, courtesy of newseum, or generate your own right-wing headline with the daily mail-o-matic. For readers outside the UK The Daily Mail is a notoriously right wing UK daily tabloid, which no doubt still mourns the loss of Margret Thatcher as PM [via del.icio.us and le donut].

David LaChapelle
The awsome photography/design/art/call it what you will, of David LaChapelle. Well worth a browse through the entire collection for a visual feast [N-entirely-SFW].

Squeeze the accordion, blow the trumpet and strum the guitar with some virtual musical instruments. My favourite is the rather bizarre cymbalum.

The genius of pr0n for charity; over 2 grand raised for the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre already. NSFW but it's for a good cause so check it out when you get home.

On-line train timetables are very handy, but if you've ever used the UK national rail enquires on-line service you'll know it works very badly, mainly due some very poor design decisions - even pressing the submit button is tricky in Mozilla (hint: use only the top portion of the button). Anyway dracos has built a very accessible front end to the site which I intend to use from now on. Neat.

The UK census results are in and it would appear that 0.7% of the British population are confirmed Jedis, with Brighton topping the Jedi league table. May the force be with you!

Update: I've been scanning through the Census site a little more and as well as our Jedi population the census results make interesting reading. For instance it shows that there are 2.4 people per hectare, which gives me plenty of room to extend my flat, and that there are over 1.5 million more women than men which increases my chances of a date this weekend. I think I'm going to be reading through these all day...
