I went to see Ballboy at King Tut's this evening. They were absolutely magic! The lyrics are just great (A day in space in particular just cut me up) and the music is fantastic. Highly recommended!

Also playing were Bearsuit who were totally not my usual type of music (being quite loud and shouty), but they were just so much fun on stage that I just loved them (and went and bought their EP afterwards).

All in all, a very good evening.

Here's one for the geeks with broadband (surely a tautology?): The Switch to Linux animation in particular had me rolling :-)

This is a great remedy for the scaremongering at Good stuff.

Er, I guess that I should wish everyone a happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm glad that the House of Lords came to the Sensible decision regarding therapeutic cloning.

TBD 41 is finally finished!! This one was much less stressful than the last one (which was still being worked on an hour before printing) so hopefully I'll have a clearer eye when it comes to be printed and it won't have any nasty layout errors.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to highlight the fantastic work that Weeble has done on TBD in the few months since he's been art editor. His eye for style and layout have helped improve the look and feel of the magazine tremendously. Thanks, Weeble!

Mitchell Baker, the chief lizard wranger (what a great title!) at has written an article on browser innovation and the future of the Web. While this focuses heavily on Camino and Safari, it still makes for interesting reading, and contains a good introduction to Gecko and XUL.

This is slightly later than it should have been, but the other day, the Today programme on BBC Radio 4 had a shockingly one-sided piece on copyright expiration in Europe (leaning heavily to the entertainment industry's 'extend copyright in Europe forever!' line). The CDR thread on this makes for interesting reading, as does some of the comments on the Today message board.
