Anyone that’s a Sunderland fan will appreciate this one – will probably be lost on the rest of you (gettit…?):
Cheers to Will for this one!
Usually I ignore hardware catalogues, or just casually flick through them, but anyone that got issue 37 (March 2006) of the dabs.com business catalogue should check out the servers section for a right bloody bargain (click for larger image):
Unfortunately it looks like a bit of a typo – checking out the specs on the dabs.com website only leads to disappointment…
I read in the paper a couple of days ago that Terry Pratchett’s ‘The Hogfather’, part of the Discworld series of books, was going to be made into a proper TV-movie. David Jason is to play Death’s butler, Albert, a role I can totally picture him in! Although a couple of the books (Soul Music and Wyrd Sisters) have been made into animated cartoons, this is the first time one has been acted out and combined with computer effects. Unfortunately, it won’t be aired until Christmas 2006 here in the UK on SkyOne – by which time I’ll be well frozen up in Alaska

In other news, the RIAA and major music industry conglomerates have announced new terms for customers purchasing and listening to their members’ music.
“All people do with their CDs and iPods is listen to them. People think that they don’t have to pay anything else beyond the initial purchase price. But what they don’t understand is that they need to pay royalties every time they listen to them,” said RIAA spokesman, Bob Degalhart. “Every song you play on your stereo or iPod should require some form of small micropayment to us for the right to even play that music. Everyone should realize that purchasing the music is only the first of many steps.”
The RIAA and the industry plans to push legislation to require all stereo equipment, MP3 players, and hearing aids be fitted with special software that is capable of completing micropayment transaction per listen. Industry member Sony says that it has special software available for installation on home PCs for this purpose and plans to deploy it in the near future.
That last sentence had me laughing out loud!
Now then boys and girls, let me know why you’d feel so damn stupid if you were the winning bidder of this particular XBox 360 auction.
Suppose you could always frame it.
Been a while since I’ve seen this:
Seems like an invasion again – another squawking baby during lunch. Is alright, will grow up one day, and say “Daddy, can I have a pony please?”…
