James noted that Robert Jordan passed away, the author of the unfinished Wheel of Time series. It is with great sadness that I tell you that the Dragon is gone. RJ left us today at 2:45 PM. He fought a valiant fight against this most horrid disease. In the end, he left peacefully and in no pain. In the years he had fought this, he taught me much about living and about facing death.

It also upheld a 497 million euros ($A820.61 million) fine - the largest ever levied by EU regulators. Microsoft general counsel Brad Smith said the software giant would study the ruling before deciding to appeal, and would take "additional steps" to comply with decision.

Bit-Tech have posted an article about making good project worklogs. We've all been there - a great mod, great ideas...and no posts. What's missing? Well, mod-god Pete Dickison of Orac fame is here to tell you: ideas are only as good as how you present them. And he's here to teach you about how to write the project log of your dreams

They also toured the MSI factory in Kunshan, China. If you've never been to ShangHai, then be prepared to find a rather mixed city to say the least. There are, as you'd expect, traditional elements that are very typically Chinese, but because of the gradual shift in the last 15-20 years by the Socialist government into society that is weighted into capitalism, the east coast has literally burst at the seams.

Tomorrow's legal fight may be over Web browser add-ons that let people avoid advertisements. These add-ons are growing in functionality and popularity, which has led legal experts surveyed this week by CNET News.com to speculate about when the first lawsuit will be filed.
