It's so good that I assumed everybody knew about US-based Archinect at www.archinect. com. But apparently not. So what's the skinny on this model website?

Design? Yes. Accessibility?

Yes. But most of all, content.

There is news, features, opinion, interviews, book reviews, events, a discussion forum, a salary poll and a section where a variety of schools operate blogs.

I checked out the Bartlett's blog and found this unintentionally hilarious line: '? in a smaller city like Newcastle, where life is cheap?' Londoners always suspected as much.

The fourth rule of web/ blog management is to get someone to edit your copy.

There is always a dark side to beauty and perfection and I have to say that this is strictly an under-40s site, on account of the type being very small, sans serif, and unadjustable.

Just to finish up that Mac/Windows/Linux multiboot stuff, The Register reports that the coming version of Windows, aka Vista, has a 'security' feature called Bitlocker which will dump on your attempts to boot up the three operating systems on the same computer, as you currently can. Any system you like so long as it's Microsoft's.

Nothing uncompetitive there.
