Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

His grandparents locked him in a box and made him shit. One of the many horrible things you'll learn when you join Hoy in chat.

It was a box on a ship. If we were on land, I would have had more space.

"Truly, there are terrible primal arcana of earth which had better be left unknown and unevoked; dread secrets which have nothing to do with man, and which man may learn only in exchange for peace and sanity; cryptic truths which make the knower evermore an alien among his kind, and cause him to walk alone on earth."

Question: Anybody use a laptop cooling pad? The one thing I hate about the MacBook Air is that it gets quite hot, so I'm thinking about a cooling pad to help it out. Recommendations, advice, thoughts?

If you don't need a coolung pad for your lap, and don't want spend around a hundred bucks or whatever for a top-of-the-line item, this is a model which works well:

Can anyone give me a little phone help? I'm after something I can make calls and text on, also internet access (with QWERTY keyboard) and ability to watch Youtube vids etc. I've looked at the iPhones but they seem to have too much baggage I don't need. Is there a simpler version of the iPhone?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I have a Droid phone (the Samsung Moment) which I like quite a bit. I'm actually posting on here from it right now.

Cheers Flex, I've been looking at those, is it handy for watching YouTube stuff etc?
