What a day. I’m horribly ill, high on cough syrup and plagued with technical problems. Be thankful I don’t run away and join the circus.

Luckily my being sick has coincided with a relative lull in news, but seriously – “relative” is a key word. There’s still plenty of headlines to look through.

    Part one of a massive four parter with which our beloved editor proves he’s still got his chops despite a developing interest in onions. Oh yeah, and it’s a pretty amazing read. The Xbox changed everything.
