Thursday Morning, EDT

  • Tuesday night was Buffy and 24 night: season finales of both shows, and the last ever episode of Buffy. It's okay, no spoilers: Buffy was... well, let's say season seven could've been better. The episode felt as if it flew by a little too quickly, but hey. 24 neatly--or bluntly, depending on your point of view--set itself up for a third season.
  • Wednesday night was Bill Bryson at the National Press Club talking about his new book, A Short History of Nearly Everything. He's a funny man, and one with an amusing English/American accent. Anyway, he was nice enough to let us have our picture taken with him.
  • Another reason why my hatred of The Register has ceased to simmer and is now just plain boiling: an article about The Cloud, a new company providing wi-fi in pubs all over the UK. With no links whatsoever to the actual company to find out more. It's this complete inability to provide off-site links--any links they do provide are typically broken with forgetting to close anchor tags--and their complete lack of editing (more typos than a year's worth of the Grauniad) amongst other things that are snapping this back.
  • Microsoft gave Sharp the specs for a new high-res LCD for Longhorn. The emphasis seems to be on the colour reproduction (one billion hues as opposed to 16.7 million), though it's not clear whether "high resolution" means "lots of pixels, but still at 72dpi" or anything higher than 72dpi. I'd prefer the latter, please. Apple, take note. Cleartype/LCD subpixel rendering can only go so far. No press release from Microsoft yet.
  • It is still raining here. I am not amused.

24 ending - please tell me Kim died in a horrible yet amusing manner.

Rain - It will stop in just over a week in a odd coincidence of plane arrivals and aubergines.
