TechCrunch: W3C Declares HTML5 Standard Complete.
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.
Paris Review: Happy Halloween from Thackeray.
Things of Interest: iMac with Retina 5K display vs. the Original Apple Mac.
“That tiny black-and-white rectangle crammed into the bottom-left corner was cutting-edge technology three decades ago.” And I was so excited to buy one.
Coolist: 1957 Ford Thunderbird - F-Code.
Kickstarter: The Intrepid 4x5 Camera - An Affordable Large Format Camera.
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.
PSFK: Hemingwrite Typing Device Aimed at Distraction-Free Writing.
Exactly, precisely why we were all glad to see bell bottoms go away.
An electric car for wheelchair-bound folks. Pretty neat.
‘Twas only a matter of time. There were enough complains about the new use of Helvetica.
Adobe Blogs: Photoshop & Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite).
To date, no issues reported. Good to know.

Barn Finds: Henney’s Nu-3-Way - 1953 Packard Hearse.
Oh, man. Dyin’ to have this. (Heh). What a great vehicle to haul camera equipment around in! I’ll hold out for 4WD, tho.
Kormaran. A new kind of boat.
Kickstarter: StandStand, the portable standing desk.
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.
BarnFinds: This May Be The Largest MG Barn Find Ever!
A restored MGA is a delightful summer weekend ride.
BikeEXIF: Barn find - Dave Mucci’s dreamy Honda CA95.
Nifty. Almost art deco.
Kirby 2 is here!
One of the handful of decent file-based CMSs out there. Looking forward to kicking the tires again.
Moz/Blog: Panda 4.1 - The Devil Is in the Aggregate.
A good read, even if SEO gives you hives.

Hammacher Schlemmer: The Covert Aeronautical Cocktail Shaker.
Oh, I like this ...
