"Ernesto Vs. Bastian The Dark Side Of The Moon lyrics"
Try a run, try a hide
Escape your only truth, for a while
Live the past, create a picture, it won't last
A million colours to a lie, it won't last
When the sun is cold and black
When you wanna scream and shout
And the record plays the dark side of the moon
Brighter days, on a distant shore
You realized it's steep, to the top
Never fight, a never win reality
A million colours to a lie, that will fade

While on a plugging session I thought I'd better just mention Geo-Defense on the Iphone from http://www.criticalthoughtgames.com This game is from the classic tower defense genre but I've got to say it has me hooked, the level progression isn't so mad and each level you build on your skills to get the levels down. The game is very strategic it has opening moves which are very precise but then as it speeds up no amount of towers and firepower will save you if you haven't got the pieces in the correct place. Currently I'm on medium and level 7 Bad Plumbing.

Tip: remember to join your towers to the vortex to increase the vortex power and sap the strength of the creeps.
In the press blurb it says "AUTOCLAV1.1 fearlessly interjects a powerful concoction of love, loss, and despair fueled by lathering electronic rhythms, akin to a thoughtful drive accelerating almost uncontrollably along a distant country road on a warm summer night."
Personally I think it was just too much tequila rose drunk at the Parish

Well it appears to I'm in print http://www.broadcastnow.co.uk/technology/post-houses-escape-soho-blaze/5003634.article, uses the picture http://www.flickr.com/photos/akira_kev/3707334946/in/set-72157621226213154/ I took of the Dean Street fire. They asked and how could I refuse.

Well like everything said in a pub someone had to do it, after a tip off from @mmartoccia: I saw this the iPhone Server Farm http://bit.ly/mombN
Scientists have produced the mostcomprehensive report of its kind to identify the UK’s best locations for households to install micro-wind turbines.
The study, funded by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), said some households could generate in excess of £2,800 worth of electricity a year. However, it also concluded that other locations would actually lose money if a small-scale turbine was installed.
The year-long study, which was conducted by the Sustainable Energy Research Group in the Southamton University’s School of Civil Engineering and the Environment, involved 57 locations, ranging from south-west England to the Orkney Islands, and tested a range of turbines that fell within two categories: building-mounted (typically 1 kWp) and free standing pole-mounted (2.5-6 kWp). The results show that the performance of domestic wind small-scale turbines is highly dependent upon location and proper installation of the technology.
No not airports, lost luggage and RyanAir but the mathematical problem. The basis of Traveling Salesman Problem(TSP) is, given a list of cities and their distances, the task is to find a shortest possible tour that visits each city exactly once. The problem was first formulated in 1930 and some work has been done since but never a new approach.
Andrej Kazakov has come up with a new algorithm to solve TSP, which according to him "looks very promising". Could that be an underestimate?
Andrej looked at existing solutions to TSP, the most popular approaches being local search and divide and conquer but a new approach was an algorithm called 'Building Block Hillclimber' and applied a combination of approaches so that he substantially improved its quality, performance and range of applications.
The algorithm is still incomplete, but its current shortcomings have been thoroughly analysed and it has been substantially improved.

The articles say "The anonymous posting appeared on They Work For You, a political website, but was traced to Miss Greenwood's work email account.
The administrator, who had worked for the DCFS for seven months, was brought before a disciplinary panel and fired on May 22."
Well it seem "They Work For You" have nothing to do with it which is good as we know the privacy of anonymous posting will be respected.
