Geek comic of the week: The Adventures of Pathos and Bathos
This one's kind of hard to describe, but imagine those ancient Greek smiley-and-frowny masks (you know, the universal symbols of drama) locked in an antagonistic relationship that they work through with lots of philosophical discussions against an increasingly surreal series of clip-art backgrounds. Oh, and lots of swearing. And attempts at strangling. And bicycle helmets made out of meat.

2.5 skype




Hi, great blog by the way - didn't think you'd mind me posting this anonymously - as you do allow anonymous posts ;-).

Anyone tried this Skype program yet for free telephone calls over the internet? A guy at work uses it all the time and because he signed all his friends and relatives up he saves a fortune on his calls. Might be worth a go.

Good luck with the blog
