I took one look at a screenshot of AIM 6 and there was no way I was upgrading. My AIM is version 5.9, and it has a cracked version of DeadAIM so that I get tabbed windows. It's Firefoxtastic.

Smiley showers? I've no idea what that is, but it doesn't sound good at all.

And I'm told Google Talk rules all, so I'll give it a try someday.

Ooh, cool. Certainly sounds well beyond me though - I haven't done a thing in the sciences since the end of grade nine! I've always been a Humanities guy.

Speaking of LaTrobe, thanks to the Melbourne Model putting my favourite lecturer out of a job, he's now at LaTrobe.

There's no legislation for nano stuff but companies are researching it and making products with it and selling them. No one knows what could happen if all those nano particles that get absorbed wind up lodged in your brain or something.
That sounds really unpleasant. I'll avoid that!

What shits me is that apparently no sunblock is advertised as being beyond SPF 30 now. But I need SPF 45 or 50!

So, back to my running commentary on Screwtape's tracklist.

The second disc is very good, it probably does a better job of creating and sustaining atmosphere than the first disc. It suits its title, The Arctic Circle. Thing is, I just don't enjoy the music as much as the first disc! I'm just finishing Always Forever Now, and it's one of only three songs so far that I've seriously liked, along with Plainsong and Heroine.

Thank god you can turn the smiley showers off.

My only gripe with Google Talk (as an IM program - I prefer it to Skype for internet phone calls) is that there's no multi-person chat feature... that I'm aware of, anyway.


Wow, just saw an ad for U23D on TV! "Most acclaimed concert film of all time"...? Well, I guess it got better reviews than R&H

Wow, if they're splashing out on ads to actually promote this thing, the run might last longer than a fortnight...

Does it help to put SPF 30 on twice?


That's a bugger about your lecturer.

You probably would have enjoyed the part of the conversation after we moved to the fire (I wanted to replace the cigarette smoke in my hair and clothes with wood smoke) and three of us started talking about the ethics of inventing things (and possibly withholding them on moral grounds)... which moved on to how people think and whether that's changed very much over time (it hasn't, fundamentally).

I think I will have to leave you with Screwtape's playlist... are you writing all this in his thread, at least?

I don't think I've participated in a multi-person chat in years, so that wouldn't be too much of an issue for me. How is Google Talk better than Skype for Internet phone calls? The only time I've had trouble with Skype is calling New Zealand - audio quality has been crap in those cases.

Clearly they haven't heard of Hannah Montana!

I still have a cold, but it's not quite as bad as it was yesterday. Slept in til 3, had spinach and cheese pide for dinner, and have been playing an old Midway arcade game called Root Beer Tapper to pass the time away.

the rolling stones movie that has just come out is supposed to be pretty good, and is getting lots of advertising.

Ali, SA is SA. The showdown is on (the most boring game in all of AFL!) and I've been inside basically all day. Hopefully I can make it to TAFE tomorrow. Except I've got heaps of shit due this week... perhaps I can prolong this illness.

I just apply it a bit more frequently. As it is, I'm pretty bad with putting on sunblock. I hate the bloody stuff. I suppose when you need to use it as much as I do, you'll either get used to it or grow to hate it. The latter's happened to me! Damn albinism.

Ooh, yeah, that would have been pretty interesting, for sure. :uo:

His thread? I'm just going by the usual philosophy of late, of jotting down thoughts in the postwhorehouse and expecting the person to come back to it.

I plan to link him to where I started.

His was alright; when I listened to it earlier, I found it a bit better to what I expected. I forgot to award it a letter grade when I reviewed it. I think I'll give him a B-. Screwtape ... I'm tossing between A or A-.

I see one big problem here: it's the Rolling Stones.
