BBC Four have a programme about why Blackfish (a Killer Whale) killed it's trainers. Well to me it's fairly obvious, you kept a Killer Whale in captivity for one. In the description it mentions "the orca's extraordinary nature", extraordinary indeed, because it's locked in a tank out of it's natural habitat. This behaviour is to be expect surely?!

Show's like this anger me, well more the topic of the show itself. If I had my way I'd close all zoos (despite how amazing they are to view animals) and release them back to the wild (while not beneficial to the captive animals now of course, the point remains), in particular close these pointless performing circus tricks that these orcas and dolphin's are trained to do.

Look at animals natural beauty in the wild, rather than these cheap party tricks.

Ordered this hard drive to give my PS4 some extra boot space on launch day. Fingers crossed it will do the job nicely.

Just released a new article about using Wget to download a local mirror of a website. Useful if you don't always have an internet connection available.
