Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Site(s) of The Day The Silly Season is drawing near, stories - save for the occasional multi-billion dollar telco collapse - are drying up, everyone's thinking of their holidays. So what better time to kick off a new feature - Site of The Day.

Every working day, until the end of August, we'll be recommending innocent, unsuspecting web sites with our unique blend of cheap copy and cheaper humour.

Here goes.

Two mad mods today: first up is the Caffeine Machine, half PC, half coffee maker, found at the gloriously named Pimprig.com.

The coffee maker has a important role in computing history - remember the world's first webcam was rigged up at Cambridge University in 1991 tokeep tabs on the filter machine.

A truly inspirational case mod, but what are we to make of Project Cryo - modded mice, complete with Serena, an entombed LEGO "volunteer". Fun, in a creepy, plasticky, buried alive sort of way.

Are we allowed to say: "LEGO" any more? A long-time Net favourite, the LEGO porn site - hot and plasticky! - now refers simply to "BLOCK STRUCTURE PORN". Which sounds very peculiar indeed. But then the Danish toy company is never backward in coming forward in defence of its trademark rights. Who remembers the piss-artist formerly known as Mr. Legolan d'Windsor?

Our point, exactly.

Even more bizarre, sundry books of the Bible illustrated entirely in LEGO, err BLOCK STRUCTURE. Welcome to The Brick Testament. You wanna see how circumcision is performed by BLOCK STRUCTURE people? Then click here (Warning: not for the squeamish).
