Enjoy your free Opera

After giving away free registration codes for their browser on account of their ten-year anniversary, Opera has now decided to switch to the best business model available to customers: free!

After offering their browser in both an ad-supported version as well as a paid ad-free version ($39), they now believe that the two other revenue streams they have (search engine traffic and ad revenues) are enough to offer Opera for free. The Register has an excellent article on this surprising change of route.

Get the newest version (8.50 as of writing) here: http://opera.com/download/

If the UI of Opera is not as much of a 6-train crash pile-up as it used to be when I switched to FireFox, I may even switch back. ^_^

The Best TV Series On The Planet

Photoshop contests are awesome. :)

Just imagine... you take a tv show about women and sex... and take out Sarah Jessica Parker! It's pure genius.

Sean Combs needs a new name

From a great post on TheSuperficial:


I should take this opportunity to point out that I will no longer be calling Diddy 'Diddy'. Instead, I'll be referring to him as Señor Walrus Face III. You're not allowed to pick your own nickname, so if you're going to try I'll just go ahead and do it for you. Seriously though, if I could get the media to officially refer to him as Señor Walrus Face III, it would complete my life.

I find this a very, very noble cause. And we have the technology to make it happen. Whoever has a webpage, blog or not, link to the above subject's IMDB profile, as such:

--> Señor Walrus Face III.

Although the fictional new name once offered in Off Centre:

--> Diddles McPeepee.

...is also pretty cool. :D
