Nothing to do with the internet, but I am utterly, utterly impressed by these uber geeks. They surely wear their geek badges with pride.

They explain, with photos, how they test their theory of how to guarantee the removal of data from a computers hard drive.

Absolutely fantastic.

Anyone know what the music is?

This has really cheered me up.

Default Writing Reviews for Fun and Profit

The National Book Critics Circle (American) set up a blog a few months ago. It's generally pretty cool. Today they offer tips for how to break into the "biz". Not long ago they posted Updike's rules for reviews. Both items could be very helpful to an aspiring reviewer. I think it's just swell of them offer these helpful hints.

At risk of using this thread too often just to point out good little games to divert ones attention during the luncheon hour, I point you all towards the wonderful Eskiv.

My current best score is 120, but frankly anything above 60 gets pretty tricky!
