My new writing tool — Das Keyboard Professional Model S for Mac

My new writing tool -- Das Keyboard Professional Model S for Mac
I only ordered this on Monday night, after months of deliberation and attempts to try one out in person. But with seeming no chance, I had to rely on reviews and recommendations online, and they were entirely unanimous.

My recent weekend project: Raspberry Pi Volumio music machine

Over a couple of weekends just before our holiday I dived into a mod project I’d been wanting to try for a while. Using a Raspberry Pi unit I built a radio/music machine to use in the kitchen for home, building it into a 1940s radio case that I found at a local secondhand store ...

In 2006 when I last took the family to Victoria we stopped at Glenrowan, famous for the Ned Kelly siege. Today we’re in Jerilderie, famous for the other Kelly raid and his letter.
