The wonderful world of geek

As I spend much of my web surfing time looking for things that make my brain bubble (a side effect of getting excited) I thought I'd dedicate this entry to some things that I have stumbled upon.

Why?
Because accessing the inner geek is good for you. It empties the cache, corrects permissions and defrags the brain. Leaving you feeling shiny and new in a UV protected anti-static bag :)

First up is a fantastic site showing the evolution of the home gaming console, if only I knew about this site when I was writing: Love is in the 01100011011011110110010001100101 The information on each is a little thin but it's a great resource. Click!

My next discovery is currently my desktop image too. This is pure geek - A Periodic table of gaming controllers. The dedication gone to making this is applaudable, every time I shut down an application I am greeted with this, and it makes me happy :)


The work of Scott C also makes me happy, there is a charm to his work that defies frowns at every turn, these are some of my favorites (yes, I like games very much)


At last government funding has produced something useful. Sleepless nights are a thing of the past as I now know my place in the world. Phew!


Quite simply some of the best adverts I have ever seen. Long live Atari!


My random web wandering led me to Glennz T-shirt's, and now I am trying to save my pennies so that I may buy some, they rock!




I want one of these! I wonder if they make them to your personal specification? The 'fitting' process could be a little awkward, and it would have to be heavily varnished... I wouldn't want a splinter after all :)




I think that will do for now, my stomach is rumbling and I'm hankering for a chilli and a pint of Ale - Thanks for stopping by :)

Defy anyone not to giggle at some point during this blog entry. The chair raised some mirth it has to be said.

Ah... wandering the internet. Always a good way to while away an afternoon. (She says after wasting an entire day on the computer.)
