Mint Logo

Rungta’s has been Minted

I’d been following Shawn Inman’s blog for some time now and have been tempted to use Mint (“an extensible, self–hosted web site analytics program” created by Shaun) multiple times since then. Shawn Blanc’s recent review sealed the deal and I’m happy to report that I’ve been very pleased with it so far. The slick interface alone was worth it! Highly recommended.


Wait, and watch. (Via Subtraction)

The Real Lost Season 4 Trailer

Boy oh boy, this looks good! 42 days and counting… (Via The Tail Section)

J.K. Rowling appears on PotterCast

Amongst other things, Jo talks about her plans for The Scottish Book, Harry being a Horcrux (or not) and about Hermione going back to Hogwarts to complete here N.E.W.T.s, unlike the other two.

Peter Jackson reconciles with New Line, agrees to produce Hobbit movies

Sad that he won’t be the one directing them but good to know that this probably means we’ll see a lot of the roles being reprised by the Lord of the Rings actors.

New Weblings

Some interesting websites that I discovered recently:

Sunday, 16 December 2007

The Tales of Beedle the Bard, the winner of the auction for one of the only seven handwritten and self–illustrated (by J.K. Rowling, incase you’re not a Harry Potter fan) copies in existence has been kind enough to publish reviews of all the stories (two of which are up already) and share a few high resolution images of the book.


A few sites that’ve undergone a recent realign. In most cases the changes are very subtle and improve what was already an excellent design.

Climate talks in Bali near end amid row

The Bush administration and their excuses to get away from reducing emissions in the US against most of the rest of the world. Curse them!

Do websites need to look exactly the same in every browser?

Go ahead, find out. (Via SimpleBits)

Renault Logo

It’s official – Alonso is back with Renault

Here’s hoping that Renault delivers a race–winning car and turns 2008 into one heck of a season, both for the drivers and constructors championships.

Bee Movie Poster

Bee Movie

Vanessa [Human]: …but I wanted to be a florist.
Bary [Bee]: Really?
Vanessa: My only interest is flowers.
Bary: Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan.

Very enjoyable. Recommended if you like comedy and/or animation. (Official Site | Apple Trailers | Wikipedia)

Tesla Motors Logo

Tesla Motors

Startup sports car company on track to launch a car with sexy exteriors and zero emissions. 100% Electric. The car’s not yet in production but specs on their website claim 245 miles on a full charge and just 3.5 hours for a full charge. Oh and 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds. (Via Rakesh)

Simple new drawing app with a very clean and easy to use interface. The strokes are so delicious that I feel like licking them! (Via Daring Fireball)

Yumm! Scribbles drawing
