"Owner: Good morning, Sir. Welcome to the National HTTP Authentication and Cookie Emporium!"
Yes, OK, the whole Monty Python parody thing has been done to death, but this is a good 'un.

I'm not sure if subscribing to the OEDILF RSS feed was a good idea or not, but it does usually result in me laughing several times a day.

"Below, the written-up and expanded notes for a talk I gave at a seminar called 'The Future of Music' at the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki."
Very interesting reading. I particularly liked this bit:
"Playing a record is a powerful physical experience, the very act of dropping needle into groove evocative, rewarding, embodied. The 'user interface' of the vinyl record and record player is flexible, intuitive, usable, useful and emotive."
A nice way of stating one of the reasons I'm buying a lot of records these days (the other being that they're about a fifth the price of CDs, on average...).
Some day I'll get around to writing up an article on it.
