Boil the Frog Boil the Frog lets you create a playlist of songs that gradually takes you from one music style to another. It's like the proverbial frog in the pot of water. If you heat up the pot slowly enough, the frog will never notice that he's being made into a stew and jump out of the pot. With a Boil the frog playlist you can do the same, but with music.

Hypnotic gifs animate traditional Japanese joinery techniques Timber joints slot together in these Tetris-like gifs – the work of a young Japanese man so obsessed by joinery techniques he set up a Twitter account dedicated to the cause. Named The Joinery, the account bills itself as the complete 3D guide to Japanese joinery styles. Its creator has a day job in the car industry but is an avid collector of woodwork books. Finding the complex instructions hard to visualise, he set about creating a set of gifs that illustrate the different ways that pieces of wood can be bonded together – without the use of glue, nails or screws. He has now posted 80 such gifs to The Joinery, which has attracted over 20,000 followers since it was set up in February 2016. "I was fascinated by the traditional techniques of creating strong bonds without the use of nails or adhesive," he told Japanese design blog Spoon & Tamago.

Full of useful suggestions, from the practical to the, um, less so (e.g., bring a bag of mo[n]ths into a theater showing propaganda films). It also recommends doing things through channels, making speeches, and referring matters to committee as techniques of sabotage (cf. page 28).

Farleigh Hungerford has many traditional features of Medieval castles. Although it's not a totally perfect example (I struggled to find the 'perfect' one!), it's still a very typical demonstration of the conventions and features of Medieval castle layout.

OverType - The Over-The-Top Typewriter Simulator Why did you write this? It started because I was trying to tell my kids about how typewriters worked (because of course they'd never seen one), so I looked for a typewriter simulator on the web, but all the existing ones that I could find get one very basic thing wrong - when you press backspace, they erase the character you just typed, like a computer. On a real typewriter, backspace simply moves the carriage back one space, allowing you to overtype a previously typed character. Erasing requires Tipp-Ex or suchlike. One day my youngest son suggested I should write one that works the right way and allows overtyping.
