I have no idea what it has to do with brightly coloured carpet cleaners, but the Dyson Telescope game is a hoot.

I know I've pointed you at missile silos and underground houses before, but this Subterranean Fortress just takes the biscuit! A charming house with a four storey shelter underground is certainly impressive, but the thing that really does my head in about this one is that the underground stuff isn't a leftover government or corporate shelter - it was all dug by one guy with a shovel! Honestly, take the tour, it's quite remarkable.

This could get interesting... Reuters is reporting that Japan, South Korea, and China, are planning to jointly develop their own operating system, as a direct replacement for Windows. Not only that, but they plan to base it on Linux, surely one of Microsoft's great rivals. One of the main reasons given for this initiative is the recent spread of computer viruses targeting the Windows system, which was certainly one of the reasons for my abandonment of Windows. While I doubt Microsoft will miss little old me, this is three governments we're talking about! One of which has the largest population on the planet, and another of which is rightly famous for it's technical innovation. This is millions upon millions of users and software developers that will potentially abandon Windows completely over the next few years. And all because of some security holes. Now might be a good time to sell any Microsoft shares you have lying around.
