|I've been waiting a long time for the author of A
Pattern Language, a brilliant book on architecture and design, to
create a Web site. What we got was one
of the ugliest sites on the Web. It's based on a silly bookshelf
metaphor, which he apparently plans to patent. There's plenty of
useful information here, but buy the book first.|

|Ask yourself these questions: Are your coworkers all immigrants working on Visas? Are the actual owners of your company unknown? Is there a North Carolina office? If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, then you may be working for a money laundering operation. Here are some prevention guides for employees and for bankers.|

|I love to fly, but I realize people are deathly afraid of doing so. To feed into your fears, AirDisaster.com will give you all the fodder you need to keep you awake all night. If you're just morbid, you might want to listen to a selection of black box recordings, or look through a simple table listing of the worst air disasters in history. AirDisaster.com has more complicated listings of disasters cross-referenced by year, manufacturer, or airline.|

|Samichlaus, brewed by the Hürlimann brewery in Switzerland, was one of the world's best and most alcoholic beers. Only one batch was brewed each year, on December 6 (St. Nicholas' Day), and it was lagered for nearly a year before being ready to drink. In 1996, the Hürlimann brewery was purchased by a big corporate brewer and the beer was cancelled after that year's batch, sparking protests among beer lovers. Fortunately, the protests worked: Schloss Eggenberg Brewery in Austria acquired the rights to Samichlaus and secretly brewed a batch last year, using the original recipe and yeast. That batch is on sale now, so go buy a bottle today!|

|Shameful confession: I am addicted to reading other
people's journals. It helps satisfy my voyeuristic
tendencies. I think I was turned on to it by following
Kim Rollins' online diaries (as well as the subsequent
meltdown between her and Wil Shipley). It always fascinates me, too, to
see how quality of writing matters: some people can make what should be interesting seem
boring, and others can make the mundane seem vibrant.
While you can always cheap out and get a fix
of journaley goodness at Open Diary (contest: can you find mine?),
there is something special about stumbling upon a homepage with a journal
during an unrelated websearch. In that vein, I present
today's little diamond in the rough. And I didn't
even know Morrissey was still alive.

|Well, it appears that Crack.com (makers of the always trigger happy bloody fun) is selling their domain on ebay. It's a sad state of the web when crackwhore.com is a Quake III clan, crackdealer.com is free e-mail, and buycrack.com just links to buy.com. Where's my iCrack.com, in five flavorful colors?|

|I'm picky about my malt
whiskies. I'm quite fond of the Dram
Select 21 year bottling, which you can actually get here in the
states without too much trouble. But for the connoisseur
there are few places more absorbing than the Covent Garden Whisky
Shop, located in (surprise!) London's Covent Garden.
Unfortunately, although you can buy on-line, the shipping
to the States is prohibitive. Good excuse for a trip overseas,
