Egad. Acer's new 17" laptop weighs in at a portly 15.7lb. What are they making the case from, concrete reinforced steel? (By comparison, Apple's similar offering comes in at 6.9lb - 2lb heavier than the 15" model, unfortunately. You might be surprised how much lighter five pounds feels on the shoulder than seven)
I've finally managed to get around to watching the first four episodes of Boogiepop Phantom, a series which I'd be a fool to attempt to summarise.
More proof that the coolness of the world is shifting down under: Hamilton, in New Zealand, has approved the siting and partial funding of a statue in tribute to former resident, Richard O'Brien, creator of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (what, I needed to say that?), appropriately reflected in the design.
And to part with, for the the moment, tinfoil hats for cats.
