Autumn at my Feet

The talk this week is of a website that has attracted over 850,000 since it's inception in January 2007. What's so interesting about this site? I hear you ask. Is it a webcam of Paris Hilton and Anna Sharapova in the shower together? No such luck.
It is in fact http://www.cheddarvision.tv which, as its name suggests, is a website about cheddar cheese. In fact its nothing but a webcam of a truckle of cheddar maturing slowly (very slowly). Once in a while the cheese is turned and the other day a label fell off (causing gasps of amazement from its many viewers). Otherwise it's the cheese and nothing but the cheese.
I was sceptical at first and thought watching cheese mature would be about as interesting as watching paint dry but I was surprised to find the spectacle rather soothing. What better way can you think of to end your evening than looking at a lovely big cheddar on your computer screen?
Don't answer that question
