Just watched "Her" the movie.

This was weird. A film about bonding with a computer's OS, and a pretty good one too. :D

OK, I like a laugh! :D

But why is several pages of programming code so funny? :confused:

I think it's an AMD Radeon driver for Lunix, and I guess that means it's not proprietary any more?

OMG, did anyone watch Germany take Brazil apart last night! 7-1! :eek:

An earthquake in modern soccer, and strangely reminiscent of what Seattle did to Denver in Superbowl. :D

Ach, winning isn't everything in the modern Global economy. I gave up worrying about England's hopes years ago. I think Costa Rica have come out of this World Cup with much credit for a tiny country...

Soccer has become a much more even game worldwide. Defenses can be coached to be very hard to break down. The guys who stand out have incredibly fast reaction times.

Well, I was surprised the US soccer game with Belgium was, er, quite exciting! :o

The US could have won it with a minute to go, and in extra time I was on the edge of my seat. :D

NFL 2014 Preseason Discussion.

I can't describe the misery of having to watch the so-called World Cup in Brazil. Seems the footballers there BITE each other. That and the utter tedium of a game that regularly results in a 0-0 tie....

Nothing wrong with Unix/BSD operating system if you don't expect people to do low level command line stuff. It's reasonably secure at least.

No hurry for you at all. :)

I'm going to be beyond the Internet on Superbowl Night in all likelyhood, so it's unfinished business for me. But I can live with that.
