My bookmarks for October 6th through October 10th

  • Some soothing words from Sir Bonar about the latest MoD data loss episode – "We have well-rehearsed procedures for playing down the importance of such incidents, and launching the requisite internal enquiries to establish the precise chain events leading up to the loss. This has been refined over the course of 658 laptop losses and the reported losses of 26 portable memory sticks so far this year."
  • Tattoo clue led police to thief – I love these "dumb criminal" stories.
  • 17-85 Exposed – A fascinating look at how the Canon EF-S 17-85 lens is put together. The number of components kind of explains why it is so expensive! I think I'd hesitate before doing that with mine even if it had broken!
