For Wednesday’s guest links I totally overlooked this Stef cluster-bomb buried in my inbox. [booooom] …Medic! Pac man plush heads. Cute for the littley? No way: I want one!

Stef has been bombarding Robotperson towers with quality links over the past few weeks. Tipping point reached; guest links …initiated [ting]: “Just beautiful” says Stef of this site, which appears to be for a Japanese creative outfit.

Tonight, in the continued spirit of experimentation, I’ve added a Skype status indicator over in the right hand column. This shows whether I’m online with Skype on or not. Being available should amount to pretty much all of the time that I’m at home and at my desk – so maybe a few hours in […]

Tonight I’ve changed the link structure at robotperson so that permalinks are now, in the parlance of WordPress, ‘pretty’. What does this mean? Well, URI’s for posts used to read something like Now, yesterday’s post on Rachel and Jakob, for example, can be found permanently here: Note the date and title of the […]

A quick shout to robot friends, Rachel and Jakob, or ‘The Scholdsteins’ as I should now be referring to them as. Many, many congrats on your wedding, guys. Lara, Rubes and I had a great time with you and everyone else over in Sweden. Photo’s of the visit now uploaded.

Gratuitous j-pop
