It’s Sunday, which around the Toolmonger offices means a chance to hit the shop for our own personal projects — the ones we put off all week in order to write about tools! If you’re not able to spend time in the shop, though, there’s some decent stuff on the tube:

(Sunday, December 16th, 2007) While there’s not much on tonight, we do get a PINKS marathon on Speed starting at 7:00. But you should probably be in the shop.

All times are central.
