I'm already using windowblinds to give my Windows XP apps a nice Mac-esque brushed metal look, but Engadget's guide to turning your PC into a Mac is much more comprehensive in it's approach. It should be enough to fool even the greatest Mac-o-phile, until you hit your next BSOD. Of course I've abandoned this kind of malarky since I started runnning an iMac alongside my PC - if you have the means I highly recommend it (or if, like me, you can get hold of one cheap/free).

So you're net savvy, you've seen emotion eric, but have you seen who's lurking in the background of his football game? Subtle Strong Bad goodness, yeh! [originally via op-pop, I think].

Don't Panic
The most eagerly awaited film on a utterly insignificant little blue green planet far out in the backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy.

GmailMany thanks to the kind person (you know who you are) who invited me on to the Gmail Beta test programme. I've only been tinkering with it for a little while but already I'm impressed. The way e-mail conversations get displayed is simple and really very effective, and obviously the search capability is excellent (although I've only used a tiny drop of the 1Gb of space, so there's not much to search yet). The only disappointing aspect so far is the lack of Opera support, but hey it works with Firefox so it's not too bad. My most desired feature, not yet in place, is the ability to pick up mail from POP accounts so I can use the same search functionality with them; the rumour is that's this is going to happen so I look forward to that. I'll probably post some more on Gmail when I've tinkered a bit more, but the initial reaction is a big thumbs up.

The 10 best Internet fads - a look back at what made the internet worth surfing. Some classics I'm sure you'll remember, don't click on the hampster dance link or you'll be singing it for weeks again, I can't believe all your base only made number 3, but all in all a nice little trip down memory lane.

Napoleon Dynamite
I'm normally too lazy to make it too the cinema, hell I'm normally too lazy to drag myself to blockbuster to rent a film and I wait until films are out on NTL front row, but I've got to see Napoleon Dynamite. Geeky cool.

R u a moby geek?My mobile contract allows me to make a couple of hundred free minutes of calls a month accross networks anytime - so what do I spend all my time doing? Texting at a few pence a pop, usually circa 20 quid's worth a month. Doh! So how could I resist the beeb's r u a moby geek quiz? At only 7 out of 10 I'm classed as a 'text addict', but I feel my monthly bill has room for expansion yet, which will please vodafone no end (n.b. my beloved 6610 pictured).

Knacker FactorA new mathematical formula to predict the time of day when we will feel most tired...in the form of a cheesy flash quiz. My typical day starts at 5am and finishes around 1am and quite frankly I'm knackered all the time, but apparently I'm most knackered at 2 in the afternoon (I actually think this is quite accurate). The quiz is of course sponsored by those supporters of the terminally tired, pro plus, who I can't recommend since I've been PP free since I left my final nightmare year of university. These days I prefer my regular caffine hit to be more entertaining in the form of endless cups of coffee. Espresso anyone?
