The only legit use of the greatly loathed <blink> tag. I'm afraid you have to be a HTML g33k for this one...you know who you are.

Because everything you read on the internet is true... Many of the "unreliable facts" at thebrainstrust will raise a titter or two. From a quick browse through one of my favourites was:

The last time anyone used the "Scroll Lock " key on a computer keyboard was on April 7th 1988, when Miguel Santinez, a Computer Science undergraduate at the Sorbonne, missed when aiming for the "Break" key whilst debugging a program in Pascal.

What is that key for? Come to mention it I don't remember using "SysRq" either.

Update: On second thoughts that really was an unreliable fact as I remember using the scroll lock key quite recently with a switch box (i.e. one keyboard & monitor, many actual PCs/Servers).

Feck! Girls! Drink!
Video clips from Father Ted, one of the best UK/Irish television programs ever. Pictured is the one where they protest against the immoral film: careful now, down with this sort of thing!

PigeonRank
At the heart of Google's search technology is PigeonRank™ running on lin/ax. By collecting flocks of pigeons in dense clusters, Google is able to process search queries at speeds superior to traditional search engines, which typically rely on birds of prey, brooding hens or slow-moving waterfowl to do their relevance rankings...

I can't believe I hadn't seen this before, many thanks to new boy Adam at work for enlightening me. I did actually LOL.

Splutterfish
The Splutterfish gallery is, technically, a showcase for the Brazil rendering system, but it also makes for a rather fine selection of desktop wallpapers. "Can't rain all the time" (pictured) was my wallpaper up until recently.

Sidenote: for reasons unknown even to myself, this and the rest of today's links are all pictorial. I could make up some nonsense about brightening up a Monday, but it's much more random than that.

Beautiful pictures of the northern lights as taken from Iceland (that's the country, not the UK frozen food supermarket).
