TGIF - yippie

Welcome to another installment of TGIF.  I am assuming that those of you who have had a very cold week will not want to hear about how hot and sunny it is here in Thailand so I won't expand.  I hope that you have all had a great week and that you picked up a few exciting projects along the way.

Without further ado...

I love Larissa Meek's 28 cakes for Geeks.  Feel free to make me one and send it through. I love cake.

Check out some very cool videos called "“Accurate Scientific Visualizations of the T4 bacteriophage infection process and replication” - you'll have to go and look.


A little inaccuracy sometimes saves a ton of explanation. (H. H. Munro)

The biggest difference between time and space is that you can't reuse time. (Merrick Furst)

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it. (Donald Knuth)

Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good; and when it is bad, it is better than nothing. (Dick Brandon)

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. (A. Clarke)


A byte, in computer terms, means 8 bits. A nibble is half that: 4 bits. (Two nibbles make a byte)

While it took the radio 38 years, and the television a short 13 years, it took the World Wide Web only 4 years to reach 50 million users.

The Afghan capital Kabul has a cyber cafe

Wikipedia has a page devoted to toilet roll holders

The oldest surviving computer in the world is called CSIRAC and is located in Melbourne

Microsoft writes the code for autopilot systems in all major airplanes

And thank you to Steve for this nice little YouTube gem :)
