Check out this old news article which someone sent me. Very funny!
Caption: "Scientists from the RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use and only..." [rest of the caption is cut off so I don't know what it says]
Update: Apparently this is fake. Still a funny idea though.

Do you ever find yourself needing to know the ISO codes for languages and country names? I do, and I keep forgetting where I found the lists the last time I needed them. So, in addition to bookmarking the pages (which I should have done before anyway), I'm posting them here too.

Over at the speecubing discussion group someone posted a link to the documentary The Boy with the Incredible Brain. Interesting stuff. We'd all love to see what he could do with a Rubik's cube. Maybe he could become the first person in the world to learn all 1211 LL states??

I haven't cubed much since my last competition almost 6 months ago (UK Open in November 2006). I did a session this morning and the lack of practice is certainly showing. :(
When I've been solving regularly, my average is 28.xx seconds, but this morning it took me 60 solves before I got a sub-28s rolling average!! Argh! When it eventually came, it was nice a 27.40s average, but geez it took a lot of solves.
