Bits and pieces

I’ve just come across Sniff Petrol. It’s kind of like what Autocar would be like if it was written by the guys from El Reg, and is very, very funny indeed.

Ananova isn’t the best news site in the world, but it does have the quirkies section. Today’s highlight is from the Australian Department of Medical Care for the Unutterably Stupid – Don’t stick ice cubes up your arse.

Some hero has written a multiplayer patch for GTA: Vice City. I’ve been putting off buying this game for a while, but this now provides the necessary impetus for me to do so. It’s still a bit wonky in places, and could do with a touch more balancing, but I imagine on online game with the map full of people it could well be a whole stack of sick, violent, depraved fun.

My girlfriend is really not going to like that last sentence.

In a move which has surprised precisely zero people the entire world over, Valve have announced that Half Life 2 has slipped. Well, no shit, guys.

Todays albums that you really should own:

(that last one in there because I was perusing jane‘s wishlist and noticed it was in there, which reminded me what a great album it is, and how few people have ever heard of them)

VeriSign have announced that they’re not going to u-turn on whole wildcarded .net and .com SiteFinder thing because millions of people use it every day. I don’t even know where to begin. Which reminds me, I should probably patch BIND later on.
