  1. Ditto. Ditto Seconded. Though I might not be able to get on for a while... Third'ed? I'm rarely on though, and if I am it's probably just some COD out of boredom.
  2. Mine is supposed to be pronounced "Newman" as in reference to the character from Seinfeld. I had a friend who used to watch it all the time, and he ended up naming my Halo 2 profile on his console "Newman", except he spelled it "Nueemann". Whether he was drunk, high, bored, or all three, I'm not sure. Of course, the name stuck with me.
  3. Console gamer, but only because of budget and convenience. If I had the money, I would play PC games more.
  4. Ok, so we've established the plant isn't going to blow up. So unless you live in a country that leads the world in Uranium mining, stop worrying you'll wake up with an extra arm tomorrow. I, however, don't have such comfort.
  5. I have been watching news most of the day, and they state (Not sure if we can believe it.) that Radiation levels are going down, and things appear to be mostly under control.
  6. Quoted from here. The conditions at Chernobyl deteriorated very rapidly and the inexperienced operators lost control of the plant because of their poor judgement, this lead to a steam explosion that blew the roof off of the reactor building, directly exposing the core and all of it's radiation into the atmosphere. In this case, that simply didn't happen. Any risks now come from handling the situation stupidly, which Japan isn't likely to do.
  7. Nuclear Power: Safe. Nuclear Power Plant with stupid inspectors and operators: Please see here. Nuclear Power in a part of the world so prone to earthquakes and tsunamis they have 40 ft high seawalls and strict building codes: Unsafe. Now I am not an expert on Nuclear Power by any means, but building the plant seems like a stupid idea to begin with.
  8. Poets Of The Fall - Can You Hear Me
  9. I can't really vote on one as I run Linux and Windows regularly. Although my computer right now is running Windows XP.
  10. Sabaton - Attero Dominatus (Graspop 2008)
  11. Pendulum - Self vs. Self (feat. In Flames)
  12. Billy Talent - Rusted From The Rain
  13. Michael Crichton? Yeah thats an author that slipped my mind. Yeah his novels are very enticing, its shame that he died. I've read the "Andromeda Strain" and "Jurassic Park", and found them to be very entertaining and well written. I'm ashamed to say I was unaware of his passing. I've been meaning to pick up The Andromeda Strain to read. I'll be reading Rising Sun (By Chrichton) soon. I've only seen, and am a fan of, the film version of Andromeda though. (The good 1971 version, not the crappy 2008? A&E remake.)
