You got your tinkertoy in my lincoln log

I apparently am lacking in imagination. It never occurred to me that all my childhood construction sets: Lego, Lincoln Log, Tinker Toys should work together. So my mind was completely blown when I saw this:

Ever wanted to connect your Legos and Tinkertoys together? Now you can  and much more. Announcing the Free Universal Construction Kit: a set of adapters for complete interoperability between 10 popular construction toys.

I mean wow, just wow.

Single sided printing of postscript in Linux

While I appreciate the environmental gains from every Linux system I’ve used in the last couple of years defaulting to double sided printing, this gets a bit annoying when you need single sided pages for doing code refactoring.

I found today that if I loaded up a double sided postscript file into evince (gnome’s pdf / ps viewer), and told it to only do single sided printing, it did as I said.  It took me this long to figure this out, so hopefully this post saves someone the trouble.
