Autumn is approaching, evening are getting uncomfortably chilly and now, after the clocks were turned to winter time again, also dark. However, there’s still hope – soon Christmas lights will be switched on on the streets, skating rinks will be opening again and not to forget – an extra hour of sleep in the morning is always good. However, to distract ourselves until then, let’s open this week’s Crate without further ado.

Unfortunately one was seen.”

4. Bangladesh is moving to revive the production of the historical Muslin fabric.
5. Did you know that blue bananas exist?
6. And to finish off for this week, let’s have a little tech support comic by Nathan W. Pyle.
And that’s it for this time. Happy reading and until next week!
