Just a quick note,

Quote of the Moment
"I know the answer! The answer lies within the heart of all mankind! The answer is twelve? I think I'm in the wrong building."
--Charles M. Schulz--I guess that's an old Peppermint Patty routine?

Manuscripts of the Moment
The British Library's Turning the Pages is pretty cool! Zoomable original manuscripts, Da Vinci's notebook, Mozart's music, the Original "Alice in Wonderland", plus a host of others.

It's a Shockwave app. The "page turning" interface is neat-looking but finicky to use, but you can always use the slider underneath. (Actually this link was in that "backlog flush", but I thought it was cool enough to merit a bit more attention than that.
