Shane builds a PC out of a Joggler!

Take an old O2 Joggler (cost £50), a freebie USB hub, mouse, Bluetooth keyboard and adapter, a 4 gig USB drive and a download of Ubuntu from StephenFord.org. Et voila! A fully functional Ubuntu PC. Nice!

Santa brings a Kindle

I must have been a very good boy last year; the jolly one in red stuck an Amazon Kindle in my sack, and it's great! Now I can read all those voluminous PDFs that cause such iStrain on my iPhone and a PITA on my PC. And I've got a load of books, including freebies downloaded from Project Gutenberg and Word files and such like. Happy days!

I do now have the Atheists' Guide to Christmas downloaded; some of the contributions are marvellous, some are a bit pants, but as they're all commendably concise, it's a good read by the fireside between courses.

Reading - that's what elevates us above the beasts, folks.

Kindle bells.

Season's Greetings, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and all the rest! Amazon has the "Atheist's Guide to Christmas" reduced to £2.99 for the Kindle edition. And it looks like there is a new edition about to hit the e-shelves too.
Here you'll find uplifting and seasonal offerings from the likes of Ariane Sherine, Richard Dawkins, Derren Brown, Brian Cox and many more.
Christmas is a time for sharing, loving, giving, peace and joy. Spread it around - Christmas is for everyone, and the myths and rituals just add to the fun.
