    This one has to be true.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

        Remember, I'm psychic, I did know about it, I was just waiting for the rest of the world to catch up.

          Betamax to HD-DVD Converter - Digital Convergence On The Cheap

          Here at ThinkGeek, we've recently stumbled across a deal that was simply too nifty to be veritable! For only $29.99, you can now archive all those old Betamax tapes in that box in your parent's basement directly to HD-DVD media. Absitively Brilltastic! You know the tapes we are talking about, right? The ones with you and your corduroy OP shorts on and your bowl cut riding your sweet bike with the banana seat (without a helmet of course)? And if you are so inclined, you can even archive your HD-DVD disks back to Betamax for that old-world analog vibe you've come to trust.

            Gmail is also offering the ability to send emails from the past. Now, at last, I can tell myself what the winning lottery numbers are.

              My favorite so far.
              perl -e 'print pack(c5, (41*2), sqrt(7056), (unpack(c,H)-2), oct(115), 10)'

                Haha, Metasploit is great... "-Glide through enemy networks with a squadron of winged Pwnies"

                Also, if you check out the Tape to HD-DVD player, make sure to watch the video ;)

                Google wins my vote so far though. Between Virgle and http://mail.google.com/mail/help/customtime/index.html

                Think about it though, never miss a deadline again!

                EDIT: HOLY SITE UPDATE IN THE LAST 5 MINUTES. Broken. :)

                  "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."
