OK, so the title is a cheeky and irrelevant steal from here. The truth is that I've been so busy with non-computer stuff, work stuff that's vaguely computer-related and lacking in inspiration lately that I'll take whatever material comes my way! Here are a few things hanging around my Inbox. Hopefully you'll find something interesting in there and, even if you don't, I won't have that scroll-bar on my Inbox any more
DG Tournament I really enjoyed Dimitri's World Cup 2006 APEX contest and it looks like he's released a more generic version that will cover multiple sporting events - DG Tournament. Animal Party? Based on previous experience, I hesitated before posting this link to a rather large video, but it's funny and very relevant to this blog. I suppose it's not suitable for the more sensitive workplace and any children in the immediate vicinity may ask some awkward questions The Boys will not be viewing this!
A Bizarre Debate I'm almost at a loss to describe this. Thanks to the Oracle-WTF guys for the entertainment. Hotsos Symposium 2007 I received a newsletter today advertising that registration for the Hotsos Symposium 2007 is open now. Don't leave it too late and hopefully I'll see some of you there.
For my next trick, I'll turn the server back on and probably have some more to say about ZFS. Either that, or one of The Boys will do something to make me laugh and I'll blog about that instead.
I was lucky enough to see the exhibition when it was in the museum in Edinburgh a year or two ago and it's great fun. Better still, it has the music from one of my games in there! Not that I wrote the music I think it might be in this section ...

For the avoidance of any doubt, all views expressed here are my own and not those of past or current employers, clients, friends, Oracle Corporation, my Mum or, indeed, Flatcat. If you want to sue someone, I suggest you pick on Tigger, but I hope you have a good lawyer. Frankly, I doubt any of the former agree with my views or would want to be associated with them in any way.
