    Went out with a friend to buy some manga and related goods on Saturday. He bought a vocaloid CD and we decided to listen to it on the drive back. The first two songs were pretty typical vocaloid fare, then the third track came on. Nyanyanyanyanyanyan! feat. Hatsune Miku, more commonly known as "the Nyan Cat song".

    Now we're both having a great time being complete hipsters and making a huge deal about knowing (and in case owning) the original song and making comments like "Oh, you're a Miku fan? She's okay but I prefer Luka" when the person listening obviously has no idea what that means.

    So I was out buying some things with my mum today, casually walking down the street, and who do I see outside a cafe sipping coffee?
    Why non other than Ice Cube.

    What are the odds of that?

    Just had an epic 9 hour battle with some wishbone bushes on my car, which totally wouldn't come out and the new ones would not mount back up again... Why was it awesome? My Dad, who has work by 7 in the morning, stayed up and helped out with a smile on his face. :D

    By chance I found a pastebin file that detailed the login names, hashed passwords (simple MD5), emails of a multinational and multimillion dollar company. To whom I alerted and sent in the details.

    Feels good to help save many people's livelihoods.

    Doubt it. This was a company that does artwork for parents. It takes fingerprints and foot prints of their children and engraves them into metal pieces of jewelery. The file had over 400 logins though, and I received a call from them today asking for more information. They told me to expect a call from a higher up in the near future.

    Good luck, hopefully they don't assume the worst and think you have criminal intentions!

    Parts just came. I think I did too.

    A P67-GD55 for $100 is a hell of a steal. :D Will post up pictures soon.

    My girlfriend bought me a pair of Idolomantis Diabolica.

    I didn't think it was possible for her to be any more awesome.
