Something to think about

as you put your cup of coffee and something to nibble on down next to the computer.

Factor by which the average desktop computer keyboard reportedly contains bacteria compared to a standard toilet seat: 400 times.

WOW. 400 times that's quite a bit. Considering we all sit and eat and drink at the computer, and well I don't imagine we do it at the other, well I certainly don't. Not that I'm advocating antibacterial cleaning products (which IMHO are pure evil), but it certainly is something to think about as you tap away.

I decide to join the younger generation on Facebook, just to find what the fuss is all about. The very same day, indeed within hours, the Facebook Fiasco is the lead story on the SMH site. Ah well, I've had a fun couple of days fiddling around with it thus far. We'll see how it goes, I don't think I'm going to devote my life to it just yet. There's some fun stuff there- bookshelves and Scrubs quotes. It does seem to be rather competitive, you are judged by the number of friends you have.
