These guys seem to be getting some exposure - Vyatta. The next article claims its the the first open source router which isn't really true but it does sound promising - Business 2.0 - The Black Box That Would Conquer Telecom.
New Apple stuff - New Mac Minis on the way ?. As usual rumours abound and no one really knows what will appear until the day itself.
Interesting - Systems Admins Toolbox. The parallel update tools look useful (fanout & urpmi).
Work - Why I passed up an opportunity to work at Apple.
Best webcomics of 2005 - Webcomics Review 2005. Amazingly most of these are free. I've started reading Nahast & Bohemian Overdrive.
Amusing - Make your own Einstein Chalkboard.
Handy - Cool OSX Apps. Particularly like the iTunes statistician - it'll tell you which albums, tracks, artists and genres are the most popular based on how often they are played.
Cool - Richard Dawkins new documentary on religion - The Root of All Evil. Wonder if it'll ever play in NZ ?
CSS - Live Step by Step CSS evolution.
Procrastination - Red-Square. Keep the square away from the moving objects and walls. I can only manage 16 seconds.
Cool - An enzyme based computer could live inside you and release drugs based on conditions going on. This is the sort of thing drug companies will go ape over.
Handy - Bluetooth Serial Adaptor. No extra drivers required - essentially you can send your serial port 'bits' into any Bluetooth capable device. Might be handy for tweaking unix / cisco configurations from your PDA/mobile phone.
