A family taking a trip around Australia were treated to more than they bargained for when crocodilian crowd favourite ‘Brutus’ took on a bull shark in the muddy mangroves. The result? Dinner for Brutus, curtains for the shark.

There isn’t a day goes by when I hear a horror story from Australia. Killer spiders, wild dogs, killer snakes, man eating crocodiles. What next?

I’ve been revamping 100 years of Guardian articles, a project that’s been in the works since October 2013, or 1899 if we’re being really accurate. The articles show how we reported the 20th century, from the Boer War to “unstoppable rise of Microsoft”. 
If history is your thing, the archive team are also republishing a selection of articles on the first world war.

  6. Java Moire Pattern

    I’ve never used any of the Java graphics APIs before. What better way to get started than to create a very simple program that creates a moire pattern and writes that moire pattern to a file ( a PNG file).

    Here’s the code:

    package com.bearsbreeches;
    import javax.imageio.ImageIO;
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.IOException;
