Remember that amazing video of the whale leaping out the gym floor and splashing down? Yeah, it was BS

Yawnsville

Even if they were lying through their teeth, doesn't it all look rather passé? Grabbing a gun and shooting stuff, with overblown effects going off everywhere - so much, so dull. I'm off to find a cup of hot chocolate and a good book :-)

Verisign warns new dot-word domains could make internet unstable

Re: .uk anyone?

Nominet charges members the same price for .uk domains as .co.uk (£3.50 + VAT for 1 year). If you choose to use a registrar that overcharges for some domains, that's your lookout.

See: http://registrars.nominet.org.uk/namespace/uk/registration-and-domain-management/new-registrars/fees/fee-schedule

Of course the whole .uk debacle has been an outrageous money-grab anyway, it's all pretty indefensible.

Prof casts doubt on Stuxnet's accidental 'great escape' theory

Headmaster

That's all very well but

Why do so many people insist on writing the Internet in lower case? It's a proper noun damnit, and should be written with a capital I, as the good prof himself did (once anyway). As any fule on here know, an internet is entirely different from the Internet. Can someone let the Beeb know this too please?
