    Of course not:ninjagirl: but I may have skeptically browsed the site and tried it to see exactly what it was about:p: although, it really would have been convincing to those who regularly tan...i'm sure it served its purpose:p:

    I've gone back to work today after a three week holiday, it's the first time I've used a Windows machine since I upgraded to Lion last month. Trying to revert back to non-inverted scrolling is bloody weird

    Also, I caught this on Engagdet. A 1.6TB Solid State Drive capable of reading 1GB of data per second. Pricing should be... entertaining =P

    because you spent too much to start with? :p:

    i have so much in the post right now...
    • Processor + motherboard
    • Hard drive + dock
    • New case
    • Other bits of the above case that are too big to fit in the same box
    • Motherboard tray
    • An old motherboard.

    The Pwnie Awards Organisers on Sony's response to the PS3's ECDSA key being published:

    Apparently unfamiliar with how the internet works and how difficult it is to remove the piss from a swimming pool, Sony proceeded to try erase the information from the internet and sue GeoHot et al. into oblivion. Needless to say, this was about as successful as the MiniDisc...

    Bit of an unfair comarison really, MiniDisc was actually a really good format (and one of Sony's more successful ones). But other than that: loooooool. :rofl:

    Just discovered Scala. I love it, it fixes quite a few of Java's problems and is entirely compatible bytecode on the JVM.

    Java has problems? :zomg:

    It looks interesting and I may try it one day, but I was put off by a demo a friend did for me showing the compilation time for a simple program...let's just say it wasn't nippy.
