We've been having some fascinating conversations in the forums; won't you join us? While you're at it, check out today's strip.

Internet cafes are fabulously useful things. Especially this one, which costs only 1 for about an hour (for those of you watching at home, that's about $1.50). Nice, well lit, good computers (with flatscreens...oooh). Only downside is it's about 15-20 minutes from my dorm. Oh well. For you, I make the trip.

Being located where I am, as well as being a big fan of Star Wars, I found this human interest story pretty amusing. I'll have to find this town now. Jason, stop laughing (on a side note, on British keyboards the " and @ keys are in switched positions. This makes it very difficult to type email URLs, let me tell you. There, don't say I never taught you nothing).

Now, I'm not much of a gamer, but I'm as interested as anyone else when it comes to Microsoft's foray into the world of blowing other people up (and not in a corporate espionage sense). So when IGN released some pictures of Bill "Evil" Gates's latest ploy, I had to take a look. You should too.

In my opinion, the box seems kinda cool, but at the same time looks like a prop reject from last summer's X-Men. The controller though looks large and unwieldy. Microsoft may have the hardware to make a gaming console, maybe even the business acumen (re: purchase of Bungie) but it remains to be seen if they have the know-how to pull it all off. As I said, I'm not a really big gamer, so it's not a matter of extreme importance to me, but I am interested. Got an opinion? Email us or share it in the forums. Yeah, I'm gonna keep on plugging them until you're there.

Time to put on me kilt, grab some bagpipes and eat my fill of haggis.
