Humor Sometimes, while browsing the net for news, I come accross things I just cannot not post. "Some enterprising Austrian Über-geeks [have created] a Telnet stream with, believe it or not, live ASCII footage of matches being played [at the World Cup Football]. Simply fire up a command prompt and type 'telnet ascii-wm.net 2006' and you'll find a live 'video' stream from 10 minutes before kick-off (or should that be boot-up?)." I also look forward to the Wimbledon version that resembles Pong.

Hey, it's important.

The Word is the core of the Thought, so don't mess around with the Word ;)

I know it's important but when it gets reduced to name calling it loses all meaning.

Just FYI, here in Australia we're currently going through a complete shift from the name 'soccer' to 'football'. Our clubs, leagues, junior comps etc. have been renamed over the last 18 months to reflect the name change. The consensus is that if we're to be part of "The World Game" in a serious way, we should call it by its' rightful name...and I'd have to agree.

Back on topic, I can't wait to try this out tonight ;)
