Get Ready for A Summer of Arts with The Space The BBC and Arts Council England have teamed up to launch a new service for mobile, tablet, PC and connected TV called The Space. The service is also available on digital television in the UK and is accessible via the BBC’s ‘Red Button‘ function for TV too. The experimental idea is aimed at allowing artists and cultural organisations to capture and distribute their own work on the platform. The initial idea was to create ‘a new era of public engagement in the arts’, and to build digital capacity and skills within the arts sector. Users can expect to see a wealth of newly accessible archive material from the Arts Council England, including film, images and further information. Though it has taken a long time to get to this stage, access to cultural works and archives on digital platforms is important. A packed agenda In May alone, the offerings are impressive. There will also be historic footage from the British Film Institute (BFI) National Archive and Arts Council Film Collection.

A beginner's guide to BitTorrent sob, demonoid is no private tracker. half the torrents are externally tracked from the likes of tpb. even then it's ridiculously slow. and if you think oink is impossible to get into, good luck with the other great and more elusive and unknown private trackers out there. I'm tempted to recommend inviteshare, but most of the best aren't even on there..and the ones that are..fat chance of getting an invite (particularly when your email address is out there in the open to the site admins too...). Also, pg2 is only as good as its blacklist, which is not good at all because it blocks IP addresses arbitrarily based on known blocks belonging to certain organizations and what have you. So essentially, peer guardian is a complete waste of resources for bittorrent. Lastly, the "official" bittorrent client is better known as mainline.

MajorGeeks.com - Download Freeware and Shareware Computer Utilities. Leonard Weisgard's Stunning 1949 Alice in Wonderland Illustrations by Maria Popova A vibrant mid-century homage to one of the most beloved children’s books of all time. It’s no secret I have a soft spot for obscure vintage children’s book illustration, especially by famous artists or of famous works. Spotted on the lovely Vintage Kids’ Books My Kids Love, here’s a beautiful 1949 edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, illustrated by Leonard Weisgard — only the second version of the Lewis Carroll classic, and the first with color illustrations UPDATE: Reader Mark Burstein, an avid Alice collector, kindly points out there have been multiple editions before Weisgard’s, including some in color. The vibrant, textured artwork exudes a certain mid-century boldness that makes it as much a timeless celebration of the beloved children’s book as it is a time-capsule of bygone aesthetic from the golden age of illustration and graphic design.
