Ah! Loving new dual screens at work. Now both my desktops are 3840x1080. 32:9 ratio is the way forward!

Interesting anecdote I read this morning:

Sir Neville Henderson, the British ambassador in Berlin in the 1930s, recalled that when he remonstrated with Goering about the brutality of the Nazi concentration camps, the latter took down from his shelves a volume of a German encyclopedia: 'Opening it up at Konzentrationslager ... he read out: "First used by the British in the South African [Boer] War."'

If you have even the slightest interest in British history, you should read Empire. It is excellent!

After an extended assessment this morning, I've come to the conclusion that umbrellas have an insidious secondary purpose: To allow complete strangers to poke me in the eye without them even being aware.

Stay safe. Wear goggles.

Surely it's only a matter of time until Hollywood screenwriters start pitching "My Big Fat Greek Debt Crisis" to the studios.

So today we've got Radio 1 on in the office for some reason, but the volume is turned down low, and Eminem sounds a lot like an angry Ray Romano.

I'm not going to fuck with Rupert Murdoch's wife. She has the reflexes of some kind of extremely well trained SAS/feline hybrid.

So apparently Lulzsec have hacked The Sun, stolen a bunch of possibly incriminating emails. "Yo dawg I heard you like hackers" etc. Today just got interesting.
