11 steps to a better brain

Here's something that might be worth reading if you've got sometime.
11 steps to a better brain
It's an article by New Scientist looking at IQ and the brain and how such thing as diet, sleep, training and various stimulates affect IQ.

If you've got time I'd suggest you read it. If you don't have time right now I'd suggest you stick a link to it somewhere and have a look at it when you do have time.

Biological Viruses

Genome may be future step for virus writers

An interesting little article about the possibilities of designer viruses and how they may eventually become similar to computer viruses.

It's not likely to happen too soon but it is something that we may end up having to deal with in the next few decades as biological knowledge and understanding increases massively.

WOT Comic book

Well the Wheel of Time Comic books on it's way and they've posted a couple of example pages from it. The Art work is SO much better than the book covers, even if people have already pointed out that at least some of the Aiel should probably have Red or Blonde Hair rather than the black they're all shown with.

Really Slick Screensavers

For those of you who like very pretty but somewhat pointless screensavers, have a look at this site and try installing a few.
Really Slick Screensavers.
There's versions available for Windows, Linux and MacOS X.


Quick note if you install them change the framerate under the settings option to something realistic for your computer like 30fps other wise they're really going to push your system hard!
