As Ian says, I think we're pretty much done here. Until someone gets these guys a big budget and a bangin' script.

Ninjas and lightsabers. This is the greatest thing on the internet. That's it. You can go home now. There's nothing left to see. Perfection has been achieved.

This makes me happy. Holodisplays now in hand. DARPA has a project in hand for flying cars. If someone can get weaving on rayguns and lightsabres, maybe we can see the future we were promised sometime soon?

Carpet beating injury sustained. What is this, the bloody 19th century?

New low for phishing: misspelled email from Kazakhstan insisting I change my password for online use of a credit card I've never used, with a malformed anchor tag for the link to their 'no honest really this is your bank site' page. Not just as obvious as a toupee with a chinstrap, but incompetently executed to boot.

I seem to recall Google+ getting into some schtick over a real-names-only policy back when. Whence, then, the three obviously-fake spam profiles I've had add me in the last week?

'What's Hot' presents me with Britney Spears, of all things, right there in my feed. 'What's Hot' got turned entirely off. If I wanted to be served up the same generic toss as everyone else was snorting up, I'd not've stopped watching telly. Giving me content just because it's popular is exactly equivalent to telling me to eat shit and die because 2.5^15 flies a year do it too.

The more I see of iOs 5, the gladder I am I stopped using Apple products all those years ago.

It's chromium with a load of phone-home stuff shoehorned in. And I never cottned to chromium much; it's got a lot going for it technically but it's not the browser I've been using since the mid nineties.

Liking Xfce so far.

Interesting. It plays better with my hardware than Gnome ever did. I think the Ubuntu Studio boffins made a good choice, here . And it hasn't made suboptimal choices about the UI metaphor, either.

Because it's worth knowing that a force of citizens will generally manage something that a lot of aristocrats living off the slavery of others won't. Victory.

Got to love a game whose history includes a match where nine players died on the pitch or of injuries sustained in the game. Played the so-called 'civil' version in the scouts (boxing is disallowed and you're not penalised for giving up the ball without a fight, and the goals are moved further than 25 yards apart so you can at least pretend there's a running and/or passing game) and fond, fond memories came back. I thought campball was something they made up to let teenaged boys blow off steam, turns out it has history and rules foir the classic game, although it has to be said they do sound like they were written by guys who got kicked in the head a lot.

So, small business banking in the UK that doesn't actively suck? Don't anyone say HSBC, they can't aparrently figure out that £303 is greater than £214. This does not fill me with confidence.

That's what I'm hearing, although the branch I went in today seemed to be staffed entirely by numpties.
