TWTWTW: Dad, when did we go on holiday to Endor?

On a personal level this week has been dominated by sport:  Norwich City gained their first home win, and frightened (at least a little bit) the mighty Manchester United; The baseball play-offs started, England managed to scrape through to the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup and I’m currently listening to the NFL on the BBC as I type.

Non-sports fans might be happier to know that my week on the web, was a little heavier on robots, coffee-fuelled cars, steam engines and photoshopped Ewoks.
