Ling

Haven't changed this text since Oct 2004. Is it three years already?

Just had a clear up of some ideas as well.

The best from my 3 years of sweat and tears, and worn out finger-tips? I like the self bouncing ball, village clock and the waffle meter, all of which I would like to see working in real (non-hb) life.

Other ideas that I have liked, for some reason or another, in no particular order:
