I just bought a 12 mega pixel Kodak Z1275 and so far I love it! I took some pics at work today with it:

My little control panel:


A spool of copper wire:


An extreme close-up of some resin:



This is the same picture as above but at the original resolution:

Why is the internet enslaved by LOL Cats? Just a few minutes ago I cam across a small time .NET programming language calledLOLCODE. I haven't gotten to use it, but it is just dumb. It is easy to understand and that is a big problem. Look at this sample code for Hello World or better known as Hai World in LOLCODE:

Unfortunately, not a spoof. LOLCODE is an actual, compilable language. Pyrochild has experimented with it, as I recall...


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Who left?

A PdNer known as Verdewd used to be an active forum member about a year ago. Then he left because his sig was a few pixels bigger than what was allowed.

...I'm pretty sure that's how the story goes, since I signed up roughly around the time he opened up a thread to rant in.

He does come back occasionally though :wink:

Pwned! :lol: GG!

I truly have no idea what that's supposed to mean nor whose post that refers to. :|

Then again, as much you hate Gordie, he's not the one that is actually managing this site. Downing Street's lousy web design team are behind this and they should be named and shamed. :D I'd love to see that on the news but what are the chances of that happening. :(

OMG! I can't believe it, who'd have thought that the No.10 website would be caught red-handed dealing with piracy. :shock:

Another reason why Labour are a bad party, there setting us a bad example, I mean, as if people torrenting and piracy wasn't bad enough, when people hear of this or read this article, they'll be thinking it's a good idea to piracy.

"Ooh, lets download Photoshop so we can make Gordon Brown pirate pictures"
