the spectaculator is a pretty good spectrum emulator, but the amsuing thing - to emulate a machine with 128k of ram, it requires....128MB. now that's efficient.
gah. tom's got me playing freenet again. 107/104 on the largest size. i need some practice.
uncubed looks like a good cube fansite, with info on all three films and a forum of cubists.

via lealea: the blind pianist has released a free album or mario and ff themes.
everyvideogame.com is super-fun for playing sonic. who needs consoles. how long before the latest xbox games are running in a java applet over the web?
linuxvirgin might actually be the oddest site on the net. probably nsfw
joel talka about monkey leather and small bonsai trees. and a kangaroo. who wouldn;t want to live in joel's house?
striatic's webcam is awesome. this is what my house will be like.
it look like j-ro is going to be doing a joanna shirt - utterly awesome.
i'm sure it's been up for a million years by now, but su's redesign is mighty fine.
airbag industries has a really nice kottke interview with all the stuff wired missed (because we need to know if he blogs in his underpants).
"Looking for good things about you is like looking for a needle, in a pile of needles, on Planet Needle." not the best pickup line ever, but easily transferable to other more useulf situations - "looking for bugs in flickr, etc etc".
e points out this fantastic guide to the forthcoming zogg invasion. be ready!
has jko gone mad? the answer is probably yes, but if not i'll soon be doing this fulltime ;)
PWN u n00bs! w00t! microsoft tells it like it is. via the b4ta collective

sometimes i think microsoft is trying to spite me. i mean, wtf? what was mime invented for?
smarty syntax i wasn't aware of - you can nest array indexes using square brackets like so. the smarty manual needs some serious fleshing out :)
the somerville gates might not be as large-scale as christo's gates, but they're still worth seeing. via jallspaw
robprice found this excellent story on boingboing - jailed for using lynx. onw if only they'd start jailing MacIE users.
jojo in the stars looks really good. where does lea find all this great animation?
the order of the stick - a comic chub pointed me too. need to read it when i get more time.
save toby is a work of pure web-money-begging joy. with bunnies! and evil! what more could you ask for? thanks jc :)
it's much easier to stalk my brother (mt version, now with short hair) with his new 24h webcam.
maybe wsse wont be the answer to web authentication problems - rumor has it that sha1 has been broken. oops
it was really only a question of time before someone tried it - ipod shuffles in a raid configuration
php in perl. excellent. now to make the flickr core even more confusing ^_^.
aaron points out the investigation i would have done had i had the time - google maps would take about 8-11TB to store north america are pre-rendered GIFs. looks like it probably is all pre-pendered. but that's alot of gifs :)
awesome lego cosplay. even e might not be too weirded out by that one. via jc via serge
GTPF is a perfect replacement for LDAP
i'm stuck on stage 8 of the imagepuz. i am lame
winspector is a good replacement for spy++, but i need to read the docs to figure out how to only track window creation from a single process.
youyesyou once again has the best valentines cards ever.

a nice flash version of bubble bobble [via lealea]
MAGICAL ADVENTURES IN SPACE. SPRING INTO ACTION! JEFF SAVES THE WORLD!
cube zero looks like it might not suck too bad. i'll probably check that out at some point.
it's been doing the rounds, but perhaps rightly so - a voting breakdown map of the uk.
installsite has lots of information about building app installers. bookmarked for next time i actually get an app finished ;)
jc points out the w3c column spec for css, which seems to get the point for once. whether and when this becomes a standard (and a supported one) remains to be seen of course.
david vignoni, aka icon king, has a really nice free icon set available for download. should pretty-up those network diagrams.
a nasty four year old bug in firefox is stopping some large corps from using it. ouch! sort out your priorities guys.
so i was half right all along - yellow smarties are dyed with tartrazine (E102) which comes from coal tar. red smarties are dyed with carmine/cochineal (E120), which comes from crushed beetles. awesome!
the newly launched google maps is probably the best dhtml app ever. stunning.
jc is blogging again on machine. a worthwhile daily read.
this came up on the b3ta admin list: as excellent base jumping video. maybe the most fun thing you can do without leaving the planet.
wulffmorgenthaler is a reasonably good comic. via the long-absent juff
this is the best thing on the web. a live webcam from the booking area of a tennessee jail. via holloway

A byte walks into a bar and orders a pint. Bartender asks him "What's wrong?" Byte says "Parity error." Bartender nods and says "Yeah, I thought you looked a bit off."

the porter stemming algorithm in perl - bookmarked for later programming fun.
kal points out google for buffy fans.
bash is the font of all knowledge: MCSE = Mindsweeper Consultant and Solitare Expert
leonard digs up all kinda of cool crap - a nice little md5 app for windows, with context menu integration.
microsoft's upcoming edition of windows for europe is no longer being given a truthful name in fear that consumers wont want it. err right. of course they wont want it - because the whole anti-trust thing is fucking over the users. what good is a version of windows that you can't watch dvds on, or listen to mp3s with. this is basically just ridiculous.
anime lyrics (rock!) has the words to the rather great opening theme to GITS:SAC theme, "inner universe". i hadn't realised some were in english.
a very awesome t-shirt. shame that ordering cross-crontinent gets so expensive. teleporters will releave all my tshirt needs.
the upside to peer1 is that it's on the 21st floor in downtown vancouver and has an awesome view. the downside? well, we'll get to that in due course.
a new release of lib_filter (only 2 months late) to avoid the br tag being removed when the b tag should be (bad regexp - no cookie for you!).
the wasp t12 speech tool is "well weapon". denise is awesome.
how to build an oo system with inheritance, using just basic lua - the story of o. fascinating stuff.
