So, you're travelling back from the future, making a few (well, 126) well-informed stock market ventures... Minding your own business... Then you get busted for insider trading.

Now that just ain't fair.

"To start press Any Key.
... Where's the Any Key?"

Homer J. Simpson, herein lies your answer.

I ain't gonna talk about the war with Iraq, I think Blair has a lot of guts making a decision that went against every majority to do with this country's ruling today, but that's about it. I feel strangely detached; this is America's war really, we're just there to stay buddies at the end of the day and to add a little push to get a particularly nasty piece of work, namely S. Hussein, out of the corrupt power he's got himself embroiled in.

I just can't believe that this question has made it onto a public FAQ. Goodnight gentlemen. All your dumb userbase are belong to Compaq.

Scientists: Internet speed record smashed
http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/internet/03/07/speed.record/index.html

(CNN) -- Offering a glimpse of a faster digital future, researchers announced they have set a new Internet speed record.

Scientists at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center used fiber-optic cables to transfer 6.7 gigabytes of data -- the equivalent of two DVD movies -- across 6,800 miles in less than a minute.

The team was able to transfer uncompressed data at 923 megabits per second for 58 seconds from Sunnyvale, California, to Amsterdam, Netherlands. That's about 3,500 times faster than a typical Internet broadband connection.



SCHWEEEEEEEEEEET. =D

Hmm, this is pretty damn strange. Now you can watch the last 13 minutes of footage from the ill-fated Columbia landing, which was recorded by the crew during landing. It's commonplace for them to record landing, as is explained by a former Columbia mission member on a previous mission.

http://198.116.66.254:8080/ramgen/hq/sts107/sts107.rm to watch. I recommend that you download the rm file using Streambox VCR Beta 31 (click here for more info and how to download). This tool lets you download streaming audio and video files that you wouldn't otherwise be able to download. It's a godsend for people like me who are stuck on modems but who still want to experience broadband content (albeit with a bit of a long wait for the stuff to download).

The programme never reached final release, due to legal proceedings taken out by RealNetworks upon the company. Never mind hey, a nice beta testing team leaked the 3 betas. =)

Well now, isn't this interesting. Apparently:

There are

264

People with the name Christopher Woods.
More people probably die poking spoons into the back of their PC's
every year than there are of you.


Ahem. This is the results page for my name. To find out how many people in the UK share your name, go to www.yournotme.com. [sic]


Quite funky :)

Urgh, it's chucking it down with rain outside. Maaaaaaaaaan, this country sucks. However, there are certain people who brighten up the day. Yo dudes :)


On a musical note, I just rediscovered (thanks to VH1's Late Night programming) a track by SWV (Sisters With Voices) called Be Right Here, the Human Nature Mix. Check it out, it's well funky, and samples an old MJ track. Quality with a capital T if I may say so myself.

You just HAVE to have it in your music collection, else your name isn't funkalicious.
