the weekend has landed

I didn’t get to blogging yesterday, as I was working hard on assignments. You may have noticed the quick post I put up with some music and a video of it. Check it out if you get the chance, Bob Marley is awesome and the remake is brilliant. Just gets me all summery and wanting the sun and sand!! Back to today now, I had the dedication of some friends’ baby this morning, Annabelle is SOOOOO cute it’s ridiculous. Also bumped into some other old friends there whose baby was being dedicated in the same service. Great service, great people, and lots of cute babies. And then there was food afterward. I also started up a page on here linking to useful websites for coding, web-development, anything scripty as a kinda go-to page for quick reference. Hopefully it becomes useful for some of you. Check it out here.

In techy/g33ky/web land, the DDoS of Facebook and Twitter the other day is now being treated as an attack by Russian hackers, specifically targetting a 34-year-old economics lecturer and blogger who criticises Russia’s military presence in the Caucasus. Facebook and Twitter launched investigations yesterday, as a blogger called “Cyxymu” (a latinised version of Sukhumi, the capital of the Georgian breakaway republic, Abkhazia) announced he was the attack’s first target. Max Kelly, Facebook’s chief security officer, confirmed Cyxymu was the target.

Just checked my Twitter account and found that none of my text Tweets this evening from work have made it through. Thanks Vodafone, you’re awesome!!!!

Rumours are starting [via Engadget] that iTunes 9 will have BluRay support. As Engadget says

To be fair, the HD disc format wars are all but over at this point, and the most recent Final Cut Pro actually lets you burn video directly to a third-party BD drive, only to have to play the discs on another, non-Mac device. This is all pretty sketch at the moment, and we doubt the boys in Cupertino will be showing their hands until just after the eleventh hour — let’s not forget, also, that iTunes is also available for Windows which does have other third-party Blu-ray playback software.

So, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see now, won’t we??

Gizmodo is also showing off this 16GB USB, plus whatever microSD cards you shove inside. Kinda Osum!! [geekstuff4u via ohgizmo via gizmodo]

Into a night of playing with Microsoft Virtual PC and the WRK for Windows Server 2003 now. Ciao.
