The registration of the .xxx TLD moves one step closer. Quite how beneficial this will be I don’t know…
England (well, Pietersen really) give Australia a good hiding. Made all the better by this article in the Sidney Morning Herald:
Glenn McGrath has shrugged his shoulders at the hysterical reaction to Australia’s defeat in the first international of their tour, responding that England had not improved enough to win the Ashes and that the Australians had detected a weakness in Test aspirant Kevin Pietersen.

So. Bangladesh win only their 10th ODI after 108 attempts. And it’s against Australia at the beginning of an Ashes summer. As a Brit I guess you can’t ask for anything better.

9 for 2. Gilchrist for 0 and Ponting for 1. Against Bangladesh. Oh dear. How unfortunate….
As if to prove my point, today the BBC reports that Britons’ music collections are worth on average £1,500, with 10% of those surveyed owning more than 500 CDs. That’s where the music on the iPod comes from. (I realise that I am largely talking out of my arse here but still, itunesperipod is still a very stupid argument)
