  1. I am Pointless...

    I've always wanted to install Linux. I have done for about 7 years now but I've been constantly hindered by rubbish hardware (Also known as laptops).

    Now that I've got my own self-built rig, I have a chance to finally get a distro installed. WOOHOO!

    So! One purchase and fitting of a second hard drive later (I'm not quite comfortable with partitioning yet) I installed Ubuntu with minimal problems. Just a few cockups on my part trying to set up a user account. ...

    ...and there was no cake. No much of a big deal though as I seem to find cake less and less enjoyable each time I eat any.

    So, anyway, what did I get for my 23rd? 100 from my parents, a 50 cheque from my granparents on my mam's side (which I'm slightly annoyed at for reasons I'll explain later) and my subscription to Retro Gamer magazine renewed for another year by my brother.

    Yep. Warner chickened out and when exclusively Blu-Ray, a few others pulled out and Toshiba then threw in the towel, leaving many feeling as though they've wasted their money and a few making unreasonable complaints.

    I myself have an Xbox 360 HD-DVD player, and up until Thursday only have two films for it: Transformers and Shaun of the Dead. However, instead of getting worked up about it: Hey. I'm just gonna buy more HD-DVDs. No reason to stop because the format is dead commercially, ...
