Metafilter curiousity.

When I visit Metafilter via RSS, I’m seeing a very modern redesign. Anyone else?  Looks nice.

[Later: Ah, new design when I’m logged out, old design when I’m logged in. DNS percolating changes, I assume.]

FWx: A Private Tour of the Eerie Abandoned Terminal at JFK.

Hey, I passed through there many a time on A/V shows. I still have, somewhere in the slightly-tame black hole of my closet, my TWA frequent flyer miles. Thanks to PapaScott on FB for finding it.

Paris Review: Happy Halloween from Thackeray.

... with Halloween around the corner, it seems as good a time as any to present a portfolio of Thackeray at his most imaginatively unhinged.” Delightfully grotesque.

Things of Interest: iMac with Retina 5K display vs. the Original Apple Mac.

Kickstarter: The Intrepid 4x5 Camera - An Affordable Large Format Camera.

Why this, when you can have a Bender?  I suppose the other is more press-camera-like.

ArtDaily: Rothschild pistols seized by the Nazis in 1939 and stored in a salt mine during WWII for s

As gorgeous a set of flintlocks as I’ve ever seen ... at least, from the top view. Silver’s not a very good structural component for a firearm, so I assume it’s mostly decoration. But what decoration.

The Luminous Landscape: Two Weeks With The Olympus E-M1.

Hmmm. That photo comparing the Oly to Nikon with comparable length lenses. After taking a hit in the Range Rover at high speed while holding a conventional DSLR with 2.8 70-200, the weight savings is looking more attractive by the minute.

DailyIcon: Abbaye de Fontevraud Hotel.

Now here is a truly interesting adaptation of modern interior design cast against ancient structure. I surprise myself and find I admire it.

AdamHyde.net: Whats Wrong with Markdown.

As I’ve said before, try teaching a client [used to WYSIWYG editors] how to use Markdown. For a programmer it is simple to implement. But to do so is ignoring the broader user base.
