Nicholas Platts has been thinking up silly things to do with a BBC Micro. Over at www.bbcmicronews.co.uk he has his Beeb connected up to the Internet. It grabs stories from the BBC News website, speaks them with Superior's Speech!, and then uploads the recordings to the website for everyone to listen to.

You can also send it things to say via Twitter. But apparently he's had to unplug the speaker cable so the Beeb sitting cursing in the corner doesn't upset his visiting accountant.
