Fluffy Links – December 27th 2006

Some poor chappies (like me) are working today. So here’s some fluff:

Nice story from the Sunday Times on the lack of engagement in the Dail by some of our TDs. Love some of the excuses.

Nothing left to read as everyone is logging off, says Donncha. Nice quote and good questions:

A good blog, like a good book, is something you can get lost in and forget yourself in. It tickles your brain cells and gets you thinking. What blogs do you put off reading until you have quality time to really enjoy them? What are the blogs you know you can’t read by skimming over them?

More Wii on Wii action. Using the Wii to stream movies and music using Orb.

Also control your smarthome with a Wii:

Is YouTube blocking Wii Opera browser access?

    I first encountered the Dreaming in the novel The Songlines by Bruce Chatwin. It must nearly 20 years ago (It can’t be actually 20 because it was published in 1987, but I would have read it when it became available in paperback).

    I must re-read it; I recall it as mind-opening.
