Your Links (And Mine)

DQ reader Fredrik Skarstedt let me know that the original sand painter was actually Ferenc Cako, and here's his website:

From the BBC:
Archaeologists have discovered an intact, ancient Egyptian tomb in the Valley of the Kings, the first since King Tutankhamun's was found in 1922.
Amazing, and here's the link:

And another, this time from CNN:
Archaeologists have unearthed a massive tomb in the northern Greek town of Pella, capital of the ancient kingdom of Macedonia and birthplace of Alexander the Great.

The eight-chambered tomb dates to the Hellenistic Age between the fourth and second century B.C., and is the largest of its kind ever found in Greece. The biggest multichambered tombs until now contained three chambers.
Also amazing, and here's the link:

From Slashdot:
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a tabletop accelerator that produces nuclear fusion at room temperature, providing confirmation of an earlier experiment conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), while offering substantial improvements over the original design.

I never thought I'd read that paragraph.

Here's the link:

Here's a fascinating article about a professional gaming coach in South Korea (sorry, but I've totally forgotten who sent me the link). It's a legendary Starcraft player who now coaches a Samsung Electronics gaming team. She's pretty remarkable, and the interview is a very interesting read.
