We've got a new way to make lasercut boxes, and we're giving away the first batch of brackets free to anyone who makes something cool!

So, who wants some?

I bought a cheap little £6 USB power bank, and here's what I found inside - quite a nice example of minimal design.

Any idea what the ic, marked mp3401 1520a1 might be?

Just deafeated by YouTube comments (yes, I know, don't read the comments): the 'Cancel' button is next in the tab order after the comment box, so the oh-so-common sequence of Tab->Enter actually cancels your comment, deleting it without any confirmation dialog or way to undo. Argh!

Can anyone recommend a tool or workflow that can generate publisher-ready PDFs from HTML? It needs to get things like bleed and margins (inside and outside edges) etc correct.

I have a rather long document that I'd like to get printed as a print-on-demand softcover.

I could modify the script that generates this to generate another XML format fairly easily, so docbook might be a good starting point, thanks. There is some basic formatting I need to preserve, though - most of the page is broken up into sections with headers in a column on the left and the text on the right.

All you've shown here is that it boosts the voltage - not that it extends the life of the battery!

If this isn't the strangest thing I've done in a long, long time --

We sweded "Space Oddity" and sang it using only the 1000 most common words, in the style of Randall Munroe's Up-Goer Five diagram.

I think you're overthinking this: an unconscious learned experience doesn't say anything about "being in a rut". Also, you haven't demonstrated anything about neural plasticity in children until you run a trial with an adult that's been riding only as long as your son: did he learn the 'backwards bike' quickly because he's young, or because he's got only limited experience with a regular bike?

Story
Tagline
I'm a geek and software engineer living in London, England.
Introduction
I'm a proud Kiwi, originally from Christchurch, New Zealand, but I've spent the last 5 years or so living overseas - first in Dublin, Ireland, then in Sydney, Australia, and now in London, England.

I enjoy making things, cycling, and boardgames. I also enjoy my job, which makes me pretty lucky, I think.
