Deadly plague hits Warcraft world

WOW Virtual plague! Kind of Cool! Certainly increases the realism of the game a lot! A very apt mirror of what can happen in real life.
Our similarities define what we are, our differences define who we are.

An update

Well having finished my Exams which were in the first two weeks of this term I've for the most part finished University for the year.
I have no lectures, no seminars, no labs and no assessment, in fact I have pretty much nothing to do for the next month (except CU stuff). Part way through October I'll get my results back and after that I'll probably have alot of reading to do.

The biology department works on a system of early exams then once they've decided if you pass or not they then allow you to start the initial work for your thesis in about November, that at this stage though is like to consist of alot of a lot of reading until I get into a lab which will probably be next year.

A couple of figures from a "year" of Postgraduate Biochemistry study.
300MB+ Of paper and data.
500+ Scientific Papers read
3 Hours of presenting presentations.

On a completely different note things of interest that are coming up in a the next month or so (hopefully).
Knife of Dreams: Wheel of time book 11
Age of Empires 3: The 3rd Age of strategy game covering 1500AD-1850AD.
Serenity: Sci-Fi Movie that looks rather interesting.

Opera Cool Web browser.

No doubt most of you who are interested have not doubt already noticed this.

Any way the Opera webbrowser has been released for free no more banner ads or licience fees.

It's a 4MB download and supports RSS, Email, IRC and of course web browsing.
I've been fiddling around with it and its very nice.

Also worth noting there are versions for:
Windows, MacOSX, Linux, QNX, Solaris, BeOS, and BSD.

Well worth a look if your interested in a new very fast and small email app and web browser.

Be interesting to see which I end up sticking with FFX or Opera.

Also if your running it on windows XP it supports voice controled navigation.

Reasons too be happy, that your writing an assignment rather than making a presentation

When your referencing Scientists such as Matzke, Leung, Filipowicz, Fire, Gorovsky, Moazed, Piano, Qun Pan, Quackenbush, Tang, Wadhwaa, and Catteruccia.

Piano, Fire and Moazed noted that...
