Over the past few days, the daily BA flight from Heathrow to New York has been canclled or delayed several times, ostensibly because America has had intelligence suggesting a terrorist attack may be made on the plane. I cannot help wondering about the timing of this – it seems a shade too convenient that these “problems” started almost immediately after America announced that before long, it was going to require armed sky marshalls on planes entering American airspace.

While we’re on the topic, can someone please explain why you can no longer take sharp, pointed or bladed items on board an aeroplane, but you can still take glass bottles on, which could easily be smashed to create a very sharp, dangerous weapon?

The game Rainbow Six 3 (based on the Tom Clancey novel) contains porn links. A web address on a poster in the game leads to a porn ad site.

I should point out that the above link goes to the story at CNN and not the porn.
As the Apple Mac approaches it’s 20th birthday Wired have asked who has done the most to support Apple throughout it’s darker times. Surprisingly the answer is Microsoft.

The first batch of comics is up for sale, and I’ve modified my EBay ‘About Me’ page so it’s easier to find them.
