Windows startup sounds 4000% slower.


Who knew that slowing down the three second Windows startup sound would leave you with something from the soundtrack of a mid budget science fiction movie? Personally I think the 'Windows 2000' works the best.

The PFY may live to regret this...

And another link!

Apparently Simon Travaglia's original BOFH stories have moved home. I first read most of these in my late teens at my then employers expense - something I'm not sure I could get away with in today's hyper monitored environments (it also helped that I ran all the tech stuff so, even if I was monitored, it would have been monitored by me!). The early stories are pretty funny and worth going back to skim over, especially if all you're used to is the slightly lesser modern Register versions.

York Stories

And it's a short one today with just a quick reminder that York Stories is an interesting little site covering the changing face of the City of York.

Don Hertzfeldt's 'World of Tomorrow'

Apparently Don Hertzfeldt's 'World of Tomorrow' is getting a sequel. The first one was a wonderful little thing that I managed to catch on Netflix at the start of the year but it didn't immediately seem to lend itself to a sequel so I'm quite interested to see where he goes with 'Emily' and 'Emily3' in the next part.

Given I can't find a trailer to Part 2 I shall leave you with the teaser to the original.
