Agg sent in this thread on CGSociety forums which features a really realistic CG woman. Agg also told me that he got the link BEFORE it was put on Digg. ;) "Title: Song Hye Kyo Name: Max Edwin Wahyudi Country: Indonesia Software: 3ds max, ZBrush This is a rendering of SongHyeKyo, the Korean actress. I did this one as a challenge from my friends, and also because she is my favorite actress. So, making the head accurate was the most important one for me. I made her smile just for fun, but it turned out to be a very difficult process. I'm just glad it worked out fine :)"

The British born co-leader of a Warez group DrinkOrDie has been extradited from Australia to the US after a lengthy battle in Australian courts. InformationWeek also has an article about this here. "The second leader is claimed to be 44 year old Hew Raymond Griffiths, a British national and previous resident of Bateau Bay, Australia. After fighting extradition to the US from an Australian detention center for the last 3 years, Griffiths finally lost his battle in the Australian courts and yesterday was brought before Magistrate Judge Barry R. Poretz sitting in U.S. District Court, Alexandria, Va."

It seems that oldies are having good fun with the Wii as well as their younger gaming counterparts. “I've never been into video games, but this is addictive,” said 72-year-old Flora Dierbach. “They come in after dinner and play. Sometimes, on Saturday afternoons, their grandkids come play with them … A lot of grandparents are being taught by their grandkids. But, now, some grandparents are instead teaching their grandkids.”

Yonas has sent in this article about the beginnings of the game developer Electronic Arts. "In the summer of 1975 I learned about the invention of the microprocessor and about the first retail store where a consumer could rent a timesharing terminal to use from home," he remembered. "That very day I committed to found EA in 1982. I figured that it would take seven years for enough computing hardware to get into homes to create an audience for the computer games that I wanted to make."

Following on from yesterdays post about the interesting Castle (NSFW), Bunnios sent in an email with some more links and information about it. It turns out it is in Solvenia and goes by the name of Predjama Castle. Here is a better link with more information. "[Slovenia] is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt countries I was lucky enough to visit in my years overseas. Simply a must."

Dean has sent in this clip titled "laughter is contagious" for those who want a laugh. Agg edit: And for a Friday timewaster, how about the 2007 edition of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Gallery? :)
