Prestidigital Datamancery…

Beautiful, eccentric and desirable gothic, steampunk technology from Datamancer… In a parallel universe, in cluttered and slightly draughty study, at the top of an age-worn turnpike staircase, in a lovingly restored early 17th century Scottish tower house, miles from anywhere but close to a major airport and cultural diversions, I have one of these. Technorati […]
