The rants of a constantly ticking mind, combined with a mess of reviews and obscure titling methods.

'It's like... none more black' - Spinal Tap

OK, so after having a good rant with the people at Microsoft about the rubbish quality of the Visual Studio 2008 installer and a set of circumstances meaning I can't install it without re-installing Windows first, they sent me a lovely collection of DreamSpark goodies.

Now, I really shouldn't complain about free stuff - free is free after all, However, an issue I must raise which is fairly important.

In this day and age, you should not - under any circumstances - produce a uniformly black (bar 2 lines of white writing) SHINY mousemat. Why do I say this? Simple. The greater majority of new mice are optical. Optical mice aren't made very happy by uniformly black shiny mousemats. Such things make optical mice flip out and not work. Remember this in future.

Oh, and I'd have stumped up the cash for a domain name for your DreamSpark campaign - is not a particularly exciting domain for any promotion.
