The Bush presidency as a text adventure log. ^_^

Someone's run some benchmarks on the MacBook Pro and other recent systems. Of particular interest to me are the video encoding and 1080p playback performance - and indeed, the newcomer acquits itself very well, encoding at 1.3x vs 0.5x for a 1.67GHz PBG4 in his test, and playing 1080p video at the full 23.796fps, against 8fps for the PowerBook. As Ars Technica's numbers for a Core Duo iMac illustrate, much depends on what you're actually doing, aside from whether the app in question is native or not.

(Am I right in thinking DS power supplies are single-voltage only?)
Eeee! There's going to be a Boney M musical - "Daddy Cool". ^_^ And to celebrate, here's a fairly insane cover of one of their tracks: Kiiiii! - Brown Girl in the Ring (2.1MB).
And who can't love a user icon like this one by rosequoll? ^_^
