In lieu of going out I'm staying in and tweaking my Warhammer 40k list while having *a* quiet beer and painting some models...

Apathy kills Google's new-age Wave • The Register

This is actually a shame IMO.
Google Wave had a lot of potential...

The beta is now available...

I'm very much in two minds here.

If it is not possible to script access to the web version, then it will be a convenience for when you want to check how much Saronite is or you want to quickly relist a few things. No serious seller will, I think, use this regularly without all the add-ons that allow them to list 1000s of auctions and check prices.

If it is scriptable, then I'll be afraid of where this dark path takes them. This would then be the first step, IIRC, down the dark path of 'Paying for items/services that provide an in-game advantage'.
Ironically, without the ability to script access, this is of almost no interest to me.

There is another thing to bear in mind though, Battlenet is probably the slowest site I have ever had the misfortune of having to access on a (semi)regular basis. I don't know if other regions are as slow as the EU version, but I would say that if this is run on the same servers with the same slowness then it won't matter if is scriptable or not, it will be too slow for anyone to be able to use it without becoming aggravated by the slowness and frequent timeouts...

I sincerely hope Blizzard isn't jumping the shark here...

In geeky news. I have just finished installing Ubuntu and Open SUSE on some virtual machines and will try play with them for a bit.

Blizzard CEO calls shipping an unfinished product, 'devastating' - Massively

Heh, they could have started that article:
'Dear Failcom, About Age of Conan'
Yes, the failure of Age of Conan still haunts me. A game I had been looking forwards to for years, built on some of the most amazing fantasy IP in the world, ruined and generally rubbish.
And then run into the ground by a bunch of Norwegians...

It is better to die for the Emperor than to live just for yourself.

Hmmm, I think I'll hit the sack early for once.
But first a little cull I think ^_^

Daily Kos: State of the Nation

Well, that is hugely interesting and more than a little worrying...

It reminds me a little bit too much of The Day After Tomorrow...

Fantastic article in the Metro on page 5 today :)

Thought for the day:
The universe is fraught with xenos, daemons, and heretics... So little time... So little promethium.

05:40 is really not a great time to get up :-o
But on the bright side, Windows 7 is behaving much better than last time I tried it http://ping.fm/bCllq
