The History of the CompSci Degree
Especially with the fresh grad hires with BSCS degrees, there seems to be more BS than CS.

Firefox 8.0 Beta Available
I think you should stop caring about version numbers. They are just numbers after all. I personally prefer having small updates on something like a weekly basis allowing yourself to slowly accept changes rather than having large releases every couple of months and have a paradigm shift shoved down your throat.

Daleks To Be Given 'A Rest' From Dr. Who
Problem is that the redesigned Daleks look really stupid... like shitty appliances from Sharper Image or Brookstone, from a decade ago. I get that that's probably the same way they were designed originally, based on shitty appliances, but the appliances in the 60's were apparently a lot cooler looking :)
So, realizing they screwed up with the Dalek redesign, they decide to not have any shows about them for a while... leaving plenty of time for the new Daleks to disappear from time and the original ones to reappear. This can all be explained with a quick hand-wavey timey-wimey explanation like they usually do when things get complicated.
Then they come back looking like humans!
The Daleks Were Created by Man. They Rebelled. They Evolved. They Look and Feel Human. Some are programmed to think they are Human. There are many copies. And they have a Plan.
