Phorm

in case you where asleep, Phorm where putting together a nice deal with some uk ISP's where they would collect data to profile their users, and use that to sell advertising basicly, after poeple got wind of this, there was something of an avalanche of protest against it, which you can cleary see in the share price :)

CRT Colour Temperature Sucks

Dark Fury

The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury is a 30 minute anime short, it links up Pitch Black with The Chronicles of Riddick, sounds neat, i'll watch it and update
---
had a watch of it, the dvd is a bit short really, 30 min anim, using the same actors from the movies, certainly worth a watch since it links the 2 Pitch Black movies 2 was a bit naff really, 1 was best, dark, evil nasty things, cool stuff etc, good stuff :), this anim could be better, the plot seemed a bit thin on the ground

Tiscali adsl sucks

oh dear, it really does, i signed up a friend to their £16 512kb cheapy broadband (30gig a month limit), oh dear, it really is bad, download speed is all over the place, from 50kbs down to 25kbs, mostly on the 25kbs, but as well as that the latancy was 175ms !, I am seriously not impressed, from now on i certainly will not be recommending any adsl cheaper than about £23 a month, unless you don't mind the dialup style service

New website !
