Only a step in the right direction, but, a welcome move - "A bill to legalize same-sex marriage in California cleared an Assembly committee Tuesday despite arguments that it violates a gay marriage ban approved by voters five years ago. The 6-3 vote by the Assembly Judiciary Committee marked the first test for the measure, which would amend the state family code to define marriage as between "two persons" instead of between a man and a woman."

Sounds like Warner Brothers have been hearing something of a protest regarding the Loonatics: 'Warner Bros. Entertainment spokesman Scott Rowe said his company wants the thousands of fans upset by the made-over characters unveiled in February to know "that's NOT all, folks." Those "early drawings" have been revised into characters that are softer and less menacing, he said.' (What, like, say.. the originals?)

If you live in Hong Kong, you can now subscribe to a symmetric 1Gbps service, for $215/mo. (If money's tight, there's also 100Mbps and 10Mbps services at $34 and $16) So, transferring a DVD would take under a minute.

If the US had the same population density as Singapore, the former's population would be around 60,522,638,806.

Agh, I missed a recent release of VLC! It sports many UI tweaks, as you can see.

Hm.. seems HP's wanting to transition to smaller drives, much as the industry moved from 5.25" a while back. "The new [10,000rpm] 2.5-inch hard disk drives were developed by Fujitsu, Hitachi, and Seagate, and will be used by HP in upcoming ProLiant server and storage products".
 
 
 
 
 
 
'Course, you can just see some ISPs gleefully putting something like a 50GB/mo cap on a service like that. ^_^;

Wonder how HK's traffic's routed now? Presumably the border's guarded by the same censoring firewall as the rest of ChinaNet, but I suppose it's not impossible the island might not be covered. Ahh, I wish I'd been able to visit before the handover.. still, roohbear is setting off for there, and Japan (in general - railpass time!) shortly, so hopefully there'll be plenty of pictures and video forthcoming shortly.

1 gigabit, though.. ye gods.

Hmm. What's a good jobs site for Hong Kong? ^_^

Feeeh. Evil ISPs.

Alas, I dunno... not of any of your questions ^^;;
