Out of the Blue

And the NFL preseason is here already! I'm usually not yet ready for football games in mid-August, but this year it doesn't seem too early for some reason (except of course for the summer-long heat wave).

Are you ready for some Links?! Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.

I just want to publicly laugh an an advert that's appearing for me at the moment. A graphics card company touting their supposedly fantastic visual quality with an image that is both dithered to 8-bit colour and therefore looks bad to start with, but even worse is exhibiting really horrible jpeg artefacts (greatly exacerbated by the dithering). A worse-looking advert for high-quality visuals is difficult to imagine.
