So it's just as well I have a hardon for my iPhone, or I would so be first in line for this:

OK, not the most adult of phones, but y'know, I'll worry about things like that when I grow up.

₤97.54 for a dual band GSM phone with standard features including a 1.5″ LCD, a camera, an FM player and memory expandability via a transflash card. Gakked from Chip Chick.

Oh, thank you God!

Finally found an understandable explanation of how Linux software installation works.

Now if I can only figure out how to apply it to logjam...

My home wireless router has died on me! Grrr. I spent over an hour on the phone at the weekend to British Telecom Tech Support before we finally narrowed it down to machine failure. This after the usual restarting the PC, turning the router off and on, restarting the PC, resetting the router, restarting the PC, changing the filter, restarting the PC, ad nauseum.

It probably wouldn't have taken so long but the second time I rang I got a technician with a very thick Indian accent. I had to keep asking the poor guy to repeat himself, as I'm crap with understanding people with accents. Not that I don't have one myself, but an Antipodean accent is fairly innocuous (unless you happen to be Portuguese, who for some reason have huge difficulties with it I've found). Personally, economic reasons aside, I much prefer the Scottish call centres. That's a truly lovely accent to my ears.

Anyway, thank goodness I kept my old non-wireless router! So until I have the time to upgrade (which won't be for a week or so) my living room is once again live with the snakes of cables... :-P

Haha Rodney, I know what John's ordering on the next Daedelus run...

The Back To The Future Flux Capacitor Replica

From the Things From Another World website (found through Shiny Shiny):
"A Diamond Select Release! Get your own time machine up and running with this high-tech replica from the 1985 classic Back to the Future! Reproduced with full light effects and adjustable power settings, the Flux Capacitor replica recreates the 1.21 jigowatt-controlling heart of the De Lorean time machine. Measuring over sixteen inches tall and twelve inches wide, each replica features hand-numbering with a matching box, Certificate of Authenticity and Care Instructions!"

As you don't have your own local insane eccentric genius, it will cost you the sum of $220 (£110).
