    From a thread in GD, check it out. Which way does the shadow spin for you? Clockwise (right brain) or anti (left brain)? Found it changed direction when I looked at the shadow/feet.

    Wait, what is inserting the semicolons?
    Chrome (and, I assume, other browsers that support javascript)....although I suppose one should actually blame it on v8 in this case.
    See http://robertnyman.com/2008/10/16/be...lon-insertion/ and http://inimino.org/~inimino/blog/javascript_semicolons
    It seems utterly stupid to me - I can't see any benefits. All I see it offering is potential confusion.

    Clockwise only. Can't see it the other way.
    I was expecting my left brain to be dominant, I must admit...

    Guys, I'm curious about your opinion on http://www.stereopsis.com/flux/
    Download and install it when using only indoor lights (i.e. pitch black outside) and give it a click on the 'timeline screen' to cycle through a 24 hour preview. I found the difference quite stunning (and a lot easier on the eyes).

    Sort of a lighter, softer, gentler colour now. You're right, it is nicer on the eyes.

    I've been using it for a while now. Makes my screens a lot more pleasant to look at, but I have to remember to disable it if I'm doing any Photoshop work. :p:

    Somehow, 1.5GB of RAM is a reasonable amount to consume when transferring 100MB of ebooks via itunes
    I don't even understand how that's possible.
    Worth noting that it didn't even finish - it just threw up an error message and died after consuming all physical memory on my laptop.

    I hate iTunes. Horrible program. I never sync the iPhone to it unless it's absolutely necessary. :rant:

    iTunes makes my blood boil. I made the biggest mistake of my life when I checked the 'Manually Manage Music and Video' box. Now, it suddenly decided that it would uncheck the 'Manually manage...' box, I can't add any content to my iPhone without erasing all content on it first.

    If it hasn't improved in 4 years (compare post dates), perhaps one should look into alternative distros :mmm:

    Well, sometimes people come back and just want a new start. Some people make a new account, even though if they kept their account they would be tsr elite.

    Bringing a 17" laptop to university is a pain. Too big and bulky. Recently, I've found myself eyeing up those 13" white MacBooks people have, their lack of noise when typing, screen size and their portability. Jealous. :ashamed:

    At least you have a functioning machine of your own!! I'm having to use a University supplied machine that I can't do anything to

    That said, a TouchSmart laptop for a couple of things should be coming through DSA, and my current laptop is being given one last chance before I scrap it and get a desktop, because if it works and lasts a little it means I can get a better deal on the Sandy Bridge rig that'll replace it.

    Never buy from pcspecialist.co.uk. Aftercare is appalling, and build quality is useless

    but if you want a highly priced 13" you could get a thinkpad, which would double up as a snow sledge/offensive weapon/hammer/coffee strainer and you can take it with you into space should you ever happen to become an astronaut.

    although I've only got a little netbook/netvertable and my desktop atm, my sister is borrowing my laptop (its a bit on the heavy/large side so I never really took it anywhere, however it is far nicer to program on than my netbook, 1024x600 is inhumane).
