Merry Christmas! I piled up as many links as I could in the theory that many readers have the spare time for it today/tomorrow/next few days.
Your unrelated game link of the week: Lode Runner. The whole thing in HTML5 as far as I can tell. (via)
Your unrelated video of the week: AAAAAAAAAAAA
Well, now there’s a song stuck in your head if you are me. Anyway, BSDNow 173 has no interview but the usual news, plus some older UNIX history anecdotes I wish I had found first.
Dig up more on James Burke (linked below) if you can, and if you have the time. His Connections show was a delight.
A lot of this I picked up in previous weeks, knowing that the U.S Thanksgiving holiday was going to either dry up all links or give me a crapload.
Your unrelated link of the week: The Secret World of Stuff. (via)
Some of this is overflow from last week.
There’s got to be something surprising and/or useful for you in this week’s links; they are gloriously eclectic.
Your unrelated browser game of the week: Epitaph. (via)
I finished this waaaay early.
Your unrelated link of the week: Take On Me, shittyfluted. Similar to sweding, and I’m so sorry.
This week’s Lazy Reading came together in perhaps 10 minutes.
Your unrelated music video of the week: Danny Brown – When It Rain. The music may not be what you are used to, but I like how “damaged VHS tape” is being used as a visual design choice. (via)
Every third link is about old technology, and I swear it’s not on purpose.
Your unrelated comics link of the week: DHARBIN. I briefly met the artist at TCAF a few years ago; he looks exactly like how he draws himself. Here’s an affecting strip about pets and loss.
I manage to avoid a topic this week, really. That’s good!
Happy birthday to my younger daughter.
This post fleshed out at the last minute, between road trips.
Enjoy! I am going to have irregular network access over the next week, so this may be the only post for several days.
It’s a nerdy Lazy Reading today. Well, nerdier than usual, I think.
Half of this was done while trapped in day 3 of a 3-day planning and training meeting at work.

Your unrelated video link of the week: Annecy International Animated Film Festival 2016. Scroll down for the videos, embedded and linked.
Did this early too, but ended up with lots of links.
I got me a retro Teasmade, so as you read this, I’m probably waking up to a fresh cup. It’s not very practical, but it is fun.
Your unrelated video of the week: 2016 AICP Sponsor Reel. (via)
Covering all the bases – history, UNIX, D&D, editors. No tea links, so I guess I’m not scoring 100%.
Your unrelated link of the week: Exploring Abandoned Mines. (via)
This week is Esoterica week, for Lazy Reading.
What are people using for a web framework these days? I was messing with Fat Free Framework, and there seems to be about a zillion options, for many languages, these days.
Your unrelated comics link of the week: The Digital Comics Museum.
