lol @ josh.. For the brilliant throat clearing intro.

I just got myself a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro Headphones, and while listening for the first time using said headphones was appreciating the crystal clear audio and the new Low Bassier sections of Ryan's intro bit, Intro music.. When! karrrhmmm..retch...hahummmmcracweaze.

[Pissed myself laughing, if only it was in Dolby 5.1/DTS]

Awesome headphone test... Cheers Josh and well done... ;-) Great show

I've just thought of a use/reason for the 180 degree hinge on that laptop; If you're stood up or near a low table and you want to use the touch screen - you'd need two hands (one to hold the screen to provide resistance and stop the whole laptop rocking backwards). If the screen was flat it'd be fine with one hand. You need low tables though.

I also thought of being in bed with knees up and putting it flat against your thighs, but I think , so the wife doesn't break it is better. I don't compute in the bedroom, but the wife does.
