Notices for 19th February 2008 to 27th January 2008

I’ve posted a new t-shirt design to the ThinkNerd gallery: the digital pirate’s parrot.

Good news: David Joffe has given me his blessing to archive the Windows Crash Gallery which had been taken off the Web along with the rest of his site. This means that the Windows Crash Gallery is back on the Web to stay.

Even better, he should be forwarding his collection of pending screenshots (as I hoped he might) so these will also get posted in time.
