This interesting article sent in by Yonas talks about the possibility that adding milk to your tea actually "nullifies" the health benefits of the drink. "Studies have shown that drinking green or black tea can be good for you because both types contain an abundance of antioxidants called flavonoids. These improve bloodflow and help to prevent heart disease, and are also thought to protect against some cancers. But German researchers discovered that adding milk to a cup of black tea counteracts the beneficial effects."

PCMech has posted this article about making your website more accessable. "As the popularity of the World Wide Web grows, so does the number of disabled people using it. Other media have taken steps to make their content accessible to people with disabilities. Films on DVD and television shows, for example, are closed captioned. Books come in large print and Braille editions. It follows that the content on the web should be accessible too. And yet, few web sites can claim that they are truly accessible."

David has sent in this site which has a lot of great resources about building fabrication machines. "Fab@Home is a website dedicated to making and using fabbers - machines that can make almost anything, right on your desktop. This website provides an open source kit that lets you make your own simple fabber, and use it to print three dimensional objects. You can download and print various items, try out new materials, or upload and share your own projects. Advanced users can modify and improve the fabber itself."
