Oracle?

In DC comics, as I recall it Barbara Gordon uses voice synthesis and some form of animated face when she's being Oracle and may be seen / heard by someone who isn't in on her secret identity. Can anyone point me at pictures?

Bicycle rental update

Forgot to post this yesterday - a dozen or so of the metal receptacles for rental bikes have appeared in Pembridge Road at the end of Portobello Road. This one seems to make a fair amount of sense, except there's the usual problem of it being a fairly narrow road - and in this case it's also a bus route, where traffic is often clogged especially when two buses try to go in opposite directions. It's not quite the worse part of that road, but nearly. Add inexperienced cyclists to the mix...

Progress

Got quite a lot done on the Weinbaum game today - I've nearly finished the framing adventure thing I've been working on for a while, and I've also put together a PDF version of the Planetary Stories that are out of European copyright. It comes out at just over a megabyte including two largish illustrations, which isn't too bad. It's got all of the stories except Tidal Moon, which was finished by Helen Weinbaum and is still in copyright in Europe.

If anyone would like to take a look through this let me know by a personal message or email - the stories have already been proof-read several times, and I don't think I've screwed up in the conversion to PDF, but you never know. It's over 150 pages, if you can receive an email that size let me know and I'll send it to you.
