Steve and Chris have been taking care of this stray for some time now. He is super friendly and appears to have come from a domestic-cat situation before being strayed. Formerly known as Panther, Black Cat or Half-Tail, I named him "Hatchback" due to half his tail being cut off at some stage. Just like a hatchback car, he has a shorter rear end!
It's been a while... but my blog is back up and running after a server change and some permissions issues.

Initially I thought the Powerball gyroscope was the silliest toy I'd seen a grown man purchase in a long time. I was wrong.
It's THE most addictive thing our office has seen!
Start it with the string (most of us can start it with a thumb flick now) and then rotate the ball-gyro at the correct speed and "circle size" with the emphasis on using your wrist, rather than your arm. The idea is to get it going as fast as possible. An LED counter on the side tells you the fastest RPM for a "go" and can also give a figure for the power/endurance over a 30 second period of frenzied spinning.
