Anyone else who finds the top entries in this list highly depressing? Aside from the fact that they messed up the year of course. :P

I find more it depressing that one of the titles is "Maria watches over us" instead of the infinitely more awesome "The Virgin Mary is watching you", but yes, seeing Naruto and Dragonball Z in any top list is pretty depressing.

The week I go to the surf coast is the week with 5 cold, wet days. Typical. :P
Sun burnt like the lava in Metroid on the way home, though.

Me too shoulders are blistering. Atleast it'll burn into my head to wear sunscreen.

That reminds me of Graspop last summer. Waiting two hours for drink tickets in a line not even a teeny bit in the shade, totally oblivious of sunscreen...yeah, it didn't make moshpitting a really appealing activity for the rest of the festival. :P

You know, it amuses me a bit that Civ IV, despite including all sorts of blood thirsty dictators (like Stalin and Mao Zedong, not to count the likes of Genghis Khan) has Hitler conspicuously absent, including from a WWII Scenario/Mod.

Which is a pity, since the ability of playing as a jewish peace loving Hitler would be totally worth it.

Short answer, I can't. But is that the only problem with it?

From experience the only real problem with LCD screens and computers (as in LCD TV screens and computers) is the Resolution. If it sits at a good res then buy it else you'll do what i did and get a 32" tv given to you. Use it as a monitor at 1028 x 768 O.O

Goto the shop and check for backlight bleed, its the most annoying and visible thing when you buy a new monitor.
