  1. Breaking Bad

    ^^ Not sure whether to watch it yet. Might wait unilt next year when they release the other half of the series.

    I'm nearing 100K in mine. There's going to be some not in-substantial bills soon, I fear :/

    The only reason I know what a 'Saturn' is, is because one was 'boosted' from Junior Soprano's teacher in an early series.

    Spy Party is up the fucking wall. Totally unlike anything else I've played. Top stuff.
  5. Life

    The peeps on pistonheads go on about them constantly. The chassis balance combined with the RWD makes them a clear favourite amongst most petrol heads. I guess they might be more popular over here in Europe 'cos of the roads being (in general) a lot more twisty. Miffy - I really like the low down aspect of my Westie. I'm 6'1" - it can be a bit scary when you pull up to a roundabout and my eye level is *below* the level of a Corsa door handle, but in general the driving position gives you a lot of confidence in the handling.

    Is the Miata the US name for the Mazda MX5? They are supposed to be one of the best handling/drivers cars out there.

    Oh my life!. Spy Party beta invite has just arrived! So at the moment, most of my gaming time is being taken up with DayZ (in alpha) and I presume this when I install it later.

    I had an Audi 80 sport back when I was a student that we called 'The Bismark' - because she got in so many scrapes, accidents and crashes and she never died. I got road raged by a drunk motorway maintenance guy (he pulled in front of me on an empty motorway and braked hard. I rear ended him @ 50, new bonnet, 80 quid)), T-boned by a fiesta at a junction (entirely my fault, fiesta was a write off, cost me about 50 quid), bonnet flip @ 70 on a B-road coming back from Glasto, an encounter with a roundabout at night, v.tired, at about 40, bent front wishbone (280 quid)... etc. Sold her in the end to an enthusiast. Was a sad day.

    Interesting. Do you think this is why politicians are so resistant to gender equality in their profession?

    Oh wow!

    Applied for an App Sec job at Twitter, under encouragement from one of their sec guys. All the app sec jobs seem to be in SF, CA. Relocation came up. Don't think it will go any further tbh, but worth a punt

    To bring it back a little, interesting tweet from @bengoldacre:
  16. Feminism

    Last word on the mail, promise. They also seem to have a fairly frightening propensity to print pics of very young girls in bikinis. Then have the temerity to campaign about sexualising young girls. Cnuts. Anyway, sorry for sidelining the main topic.

    The Daily Mail thing was more a comment on their piss-poor journalism, so anything they report should be taken with a pinch of salt.
  18. Feminism

    In your defence, that is from the Hate Mail, so pinch of salt and all that.

    Why is this good? ^
  20. EVE Online

    Yeh, Kugu and Failheap are usually good reads too. But I've kinda lost the taste for it a little. Still, signed up with a new corp, will see what that brings.
  21. Lego
  22. Lego

    A couple of christmasses ago, my (then) g/f, parents and friends clubbed together to get me the giant Millenium Falcon. It was ace. Took about 70 hours in all to build I estimated - was deconstructed to move house. Still in its box until we have room. That biplane looks pretty mint too! Nice colours on it. While in Japan, we chanced upon Nanoblocks. Lego, but tiny wee. I chose a [img=]Macaw[/img] from the mini-series, and very nice he is too! They do all sorts of cool sets, from Easter Island Statues, to the Eiffel tower, to satellites and battleships.

    The toilet that is xbox live stopped me playing on it long ago. When I first got live, in 2006, it was merely the latest form of the online MP drug that I'd first sampled in 2000 on PC with Q3 and CS. It didn't take long for me to stop enjoying it as much and eventually just stop altogether - purely because of the inter-player communication. The UK gov't, in an effort to combat online bullying, is suggesting a form of 'REALID' that Blizzard uses, and in a way I agree with it. However, due to the way that the UK gov't comports itself with any matters of online ID, tracking, log-keeping rules, (or indeed pretty much anything of late) I simply don't trust them to not balls it up and reduce everyone's freedoms as much as they possibly can. Er... OT, sorry.
  24. Diablo III

    Talking to a friend, he's hitting ACt 2 Inferno. It seems that the latest patch is basically designed around making you use the RMAH to progress. The in-game gold AH doesn't have the gear that you will need to make a dent in those bad guys. I've cooled on it anyway, as I simply couldn't face ACt 1 for the (what feels like) the 9th time.
