* Guardian Photographer Dan Chung visits Prague, and gets a good shot of the remarkable astrological clock there; if you have even the slightest interest in technology, you really should check it out. The ability to see things working, which is inherent in a big clockwork machine such as the Prague clock, gets a bit lost with modern electronic technology which is a shame (although learning how to open up a PC and take it apart is a good counter to this trend).
* Emusic, the legal music download site that sells MP3s without crappy DRM restrictions has opened a UK specific site. On the downside, prices have gone up slightly as they now include VAT, but they have sorted out some of the legal stuff so that the White Stripes etc are available for download. Try Tokyo Polic Club for starters.
* Binary Bonsai discusses the problem with Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion – the cop-out which is the levelling system, whereby bad guys levels up as you do. So there is no point to improving your character, as the bandits who waylay you later in the game will have awesome magical swords (in that case, WHY ARE THEY BANDITS? Don’t they have anything more heroic to do with their amazing skills?). Fortunately, you can fix Oblivion by modding it. Phil rounded up a bunch for Bit-Tech, here.
