Media / Sony (PlayStation) PS3 ship date - 2006
« on: December 02, 2004, 05:09:00 PM »
SOme interesting info for the gamers out there:


Sony´s PlayStation 3 will not appear until 2006 at the earliest, the company tacitly confirmed today. The company´s joint announcement with IBM and Toshiba that the PS3´s processor, ´Cell´, will be detailed at February 2005´s International Solid State Circuits Conference focuses on the chip´s features. However, it also notes that Sony plans to "commercialise" Cell-based products in 2006 and confirms that Cell will be used in the company´s "next-generation computer entertainment system".

That timeframe follows IBM´s plan to begin limited Cell production at its East Fishkill, New York 300mm wafer fab in the second half of 2005. In the past, IBM has pointed to an H1 2005 production start.

It´s a schedule that´s by no means at odds with what Sony has said so far. Cell is due to be unveiled mid-Q1 2005, and the PS3 is expected to be formally announced before the end of Q1 2005, when Sony´s 2005 fiscal year comes to a close. You wouldn´t expect Sony to talk about PS3 until Cell was complete, so those two events are clearly in sync.

PS3 is expected to make its first public appearance at the E3 show next May, just after Sony begins shipping first-generation console software development kits (SDKs), which are likely to be software-only offerings given IBM´s production scheduled. Sony´s roadmap calls for a second-generation SDK to appear October 2005, which will presumably ship alongside early hardware, again given IBM´s H2 production run.

Such a schedule would give developers a good shot at offering software for the console early to mid-2006, which is when the console is likely to appear.


This one is set to be a multi-media darling of a system/console.Will have to see bout it.Maybe we´ll all end up having PS3´s as our base units to make music from and perhaps record as well.Using the Cell as a midi controller. :-]

Hot Traxxx / Zubz - Listeners Digest
« on: December 02, 2004, 04:41:00 AM »
I finally saw this cd in the stores.I was mighty surprised to see Musica selling it for R69,99.I was expecting it to be around R100.SO thats a nice gesture by the record company to get more ppl with low cash flow to purchase the cd.I heard 2 songs from it now "Move" and "I Write" and I am luving them.His flow is just too nice and "I Write" he just hits hard and on-point.The boy is tightness personified.I havent heard the rest of it, but I´m sure its tight.SO Its a definite purchase on my part.Next week its all mine.

Gotta get that SPillage album too.Plus, the PTA Unlimited double cd is soon to be purchased.Cant wait.I´m gonna have a long december and Jan with a big smile.

General Discussion / Free Movie for World Aids Day - YESTERDAY!!!
« on: December 01, 2004, 06:57:00 PM »
Cape Town - NuMetro will be screening the award-winning local film Yesterday for free to mark World Aids Day on December 1.

Shot on location in KwaZulu Natal, Yesterday is the first feature film to be made in Zulu (with English subtitles).

It is also the first South African film to be selected for both the Venice and Toronto film festivals and, more recently, has been chosen to be South Africa´s Official Entry for the 2005 Academy Awards in the category of Best Foreign Language Picture.

Written and directed by Darrell Roodt, Yesterday tells the moving story of a young mother (Leleti Khumalo) who is HIV positive.

Her husband refuses to accept this and she is left to fend for both her daughter and herself. The film was produced in a**ociation with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, which has described Yesterday as "reaching beyond conventional HIV/Aids rhetoric, towards real action and active engagement".

Oprah Winfrey, who saw the film in South Africa last year, said of Yesterday: "It´s simplicity and clarity of message resonate with power."

General Discussion / The Longest Sentence in Literature
« on: December 01, 2004, 12:54:00 AM »
Well, I posed the question and I found the answer to my quandry.This is pretty hectic.How do u do this and keep it coherent?Amazing.Read on.(Wonder if it is coherent):


Many people attribute the longest sentence in literature to Victor Hugo. The claim is that a sentence in Les Miserables, 823 words long, earns that title.

The source most often given for this, if a source is given, is Timothy Fullerton´s Triviata: A Compendium of Useless Information, published in 1975.

Unfortunately, Fullerton was in error. At best, it is the longest sentence in French literature, though I can´t confirm that.* Traditionally, the longest sentence in English Literature has been said to be a sentence in Ullyses by James Joyce, which clocks in at 4,391 words. Past editions of The Guinness Book of World Records have listed this record.

However, Joyce´s record has recently been surpa**ed. Jonathan Coe´s The Rotters Club, published in 2001, contains a sentence with 13,955 words. I believe he currently holds the record in "English Literature."

However hold on to your seats...

There is also, apparently, a Polish novel, Gates of Paradise, with a 40,000 word sentence. I have been unable so far to find absolute confirmation on an author. Bramy Raju, written by Jerzy Andrzejewski, and published in 1960, translates as Gates of Paradise, but it has been described as a novella. And while there is no absolute definition of that term, novellas are usually shorter than 40,000 words.

Finally, there is a Czech novel that consists of one long sentence -- Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age by Bohumil Hrabal. It is this novel that Coe has said inspired his 13,955 word sentence. Hrabal´s ´novel sentence´ is 128 pages long, though I have been unable to find an exact word count. It most likely takes the award for longest sentence. Even if it doesn´t, it dwarfs Hugo´s significantly.

Media / Infomercials that just SUCK!!!
« on: November 30, 2004, 09:40:00 PM »
Peeps, it just dawned on me...........who are these infomercials marketing to?They always make it seem like the ppl they selling the products to are major idiots and dont know the first thing bout logic or even common sense.Also, many times they just marketing things the wrong way.Case in question:

After the John Wayne Western last nite (please, dont ask) I decided to see what else was on tv.To my horror, I see etv show this product from Tescom.Its one of those units that prevents powerfailures from interrupting ur work.

Anyways, the product is obviously very useful, but the market shocked me and actually turned me off completely.They got this whole thing of a wack dude who´s supposed to look like Austin Powers (yes and they call him AP too), speaking in a really horrific british accent.And whats worse, his name is Awesome Power.And there´s this doctor that is just too wack for words.It just sucks.

Now this unit is obviously gonna be purchased by business ppl and the like, but who r they marketing to with those wack outfits and all?I mean, if I were a business owner..........I´d never buy from them.I wouldnt by the product period. :-(

There thousands of them out there.........Ads as well.Whats with these peeps giving us this wackness?

General Discussion / the 310-letter word spelt correcly!!!
« on: November 30, 2004, 01:28:00 AM »
Boy, 9, learns to spell 310-letter word

A nine-year-old US boy surprised his teacher when he correctly spelt out a 310-letter word in cla**.

Aaron Zweig was challenged to learn the word by his teacher at his school in Randolph, New Jersey, but she didn´t expect him to succeed.

Teacher Ruth Kalata told the Randoph Recorder: "I told him he should come back to me when he had learned the word, thinking he never would.

"But two weeks later he was back and spelled it in front of my cla**. It was really a joke to challenge him, but he thrives on challenges like that."

Ms Kalata said that last year, the boy learned to spell two, extremely long words, antidisestablishmentarianism and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

But the two words with 34 and 28 letters, respectively, were puny compared with the latest challenge.

The 310-letter word is too long to reproduce here but it starts: "Ornicopy..." and finishes: "ulinaniac".

It was apparently used by medieval scribes to refer to someone who practices divination or forecasting by means of phenomena, interpretation of acts or various other manifestations.

"When Aaron spelled the word in front my cla**, he paused part way through and told the cla** not to worry because he was almost done," said Ms Kalata.

"It amazed me that he could pause, make a comment, then continue spelling without losing his place."


Imagine this kid being an emcee, or battle emcee, he´d boggle ur mind like "what the heck is on" kinda vibe.
