Legal expert: Letters can be evidence, so can Facebook

AGirlFromVenus

'Climategate' university to open up data

AGirlFromVenus

jisc funding

With JISC funding they will spend a chunk of money on computers, employ somebody for the project duration, spend loads of money on project meetings and "outreach" and writing exit strategies, then it'll go down the pan when the funding is withdrawn, or maybe transfered (without any public tender process) to one of the core JISC cronies, oops, data centres.

@Valerion

The speed of light does not apply to the expansion of the universe, cause it's not going anywhere, it's just getting bigger. The cosmic word is inflation.

Amazon flash mob mauls Spore DRM

AGirlFromVenus

Problem is, it's quite a tedious game after the first few hours

Does not live up to the hype and expectation, and turns into a really boring space trader game. Very dissapointed. Had to delete Conan to make space for spore, but think I'll roll back from Spore.
