Kill Bill's Browser

There are a couple of Anti-IE site popping up, but I particularly liked Kill Bill's Browser for its giggles, and Explorer Destroyer, which actually figures a way of earning you money if you convert IE users! You need an Adsense account, but still, if you have enough visitors and are deeply anti-IE its well worth playing with!

On the Dark Side™ however, The Inquirer reports that technically, here in the uk "...such actions are illegal, as they could be deemed an incitement to cause harm to a pillar of the community and therefore terrorist in nature."

Finally, you may have noticed that I HAVEN'T added the Explore Destroyer script to these pages....thats because I really couldn't give a rats-arse.

Big Nerd...

Seagate have announced the Largest Production Hard Drive to date : 750Gb. Coming in SATA and PATA version apparently, they will have 16Mb Cache and 2.7 BiggaGigs of FlangeWidget. Lets face it, its a fat mutha. It will come in at under $0.80c per Gb, and a number of forums are already bitching about the 'why does my drive only format up to 698Gb..' questions that are bound to arise in the new future.

Outbound Security at airports is in place, I have decided, not to check for items that may pose a security risk like nail files and disposable lighters (which, incidentally you cannot take through Security, but can buy freely once air-side). It is to wind the public up SO much that potential air-rage candidates expose themselves by ranting on about the pointlessness of queuing at 5am to get to Malaga along with 100 other people, when there are only 6 security staff manning X-ray machines. 
Word for the day: panini. Definition: tepid half-baked roll with all remaining semblance of life crushed from its limp form.

More Gizmo's

Another gadget from eagle-eyed Frasch, this time a programmable control surface that looks like it is pretty close to production. Although the video shows it controlling samples/sequences, I'm sure its just a hop-skip-jump to interfacing to Lighting, and all manner of other things....

Guitar Hero

MJL and I have been taking the p**s out of the Guitar Hero controllers in Virgin over the last week, but after seeing a WiFi-modded example on Gizmodo, my curiosity was stirred. Oh, what a can of worms. YouTube has a bucket-load of examples of Steve Vai-alikes (just search for the tags 'Guitar Hero', but one of the coolest must be SArmstr0ng's split-screen Ace of Spades. OMG!

B3ta than life.....

The chaps that brought you 'Badger Badger' also run B3ta, the disgusting, bad-taste, evil, wicked and very funny nonsense pot-pourri.  They have made their newsletter into a TV pilot that stands DICK chance of being taken up in its current form (go ahead, prove me wrong someone, PLEASE!) but is most amusing! I particularly enjoyed the Japanese YMCA and Old Grey Squirrel Test.....
