Komodo sent in that image, it seems to be off a old CRT monitor from an arcade machine which has suffered severe burn in.

Some guys at Red Hat have made an advertisement for Linux entitled "Truth Happens" which I thought was pretty good, it includes some great quotes also. A very nice teaching about the ways of thinking delivered in this Linux ad clip. It is not just about Linux as it takes a look into some of past history events where in times of ignorance, ridicule and opposition, the truth does happens.

Interestingly our World War II alliance is doing extremely well with around 160 members in total occupying 30 out of the top 50 players. Due to this enormous response the World War II game admins got a little suspicious however once they worked out what had gone on they welcomed the influx of users to the game.

SMH have posted an article about Sci Fi technology and where many fictional technologies are at. THE future is now, and we are not impressed. The future was supposed to be a fully automated, nuclear-powered, germ-free utopia - a place where a grown man could wear a velvet spandex unitard and not be laughed at. Our scientists may be building the future, but some key pieces are missing.

A student has been disciplined over playing Counter Strike with maps that resembled his local high school even though none of this activity occurred at the school. Simpson said that on April 17, the day after the Virginia Tech massacre that left 33 dead, Clements High School officials learned a student had been playing Counterstrike, an Internet-based shooting game. The locale of the shootings depicted on this student's game were the hallways of Clements High School.

NASA has released some new pictures of Jupiter and its moons from the New Horizons spacecraft. Today NASA released stunning new images of Jupiter and its moons taken by the New Horizons spacecraft. Views include a movie of a volcanic eruption on Jupiter's moon Io; a nighttime shot of auroras and lava on Io; a color photo of the "Little Red Spot" churning in Jupiter's cloudtops; images of small moons herding dust and boulders through Jupiter's faint rings--and much more.

Darkness sent in this interview about Global Agenda, a spy based MMORPG which is being developed. He also sent in a teaser trailer of the upcoming game.

Justin sent in this article about the state of selling your used CD's in America. New "pawn shop" laws are springing up across the United States that will make selling your used CDs at the local record shop something akin to getting arrested. No, you won't spend any time in jail, but you'll certainly feel like a criminal once the local record shop makes copies of all of your identifying information and even collects your fingerprints.

Dale noticed that Pandora (an online Internet radio service) is actively blocking users outside of the USA. We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for most listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.
