One or two members of my very tiny audience might wonder where I get my news links about nanotechnology and MEMS. I get the latest from Nanodot (which itself compiles from other sources.) and sometimes I suppliment with stuff from the BBC, Nature, Science, Wired and the usual suspects.

Last Wednesday I self-installed DSL so, now I am downloading with the best. The following day, prior to departing for his fact finding tour of the ATO, the Baka shipped us some truly scary hardware to work with.
