"I cried a couple fuckin' times. I look down ? 'Where is it?!' You still feel the nerves and stuff like that. I had to make a decision ? lose my leg or lose my life. What are you gonna do?

Twitter Flirting With Security Disaster?
2011-07-08 12:36:00
The year 2011 has been called ‘The Year Of The Hacker’ by many, and we can see why. Numerous major corporations’ websites and networks have been hacked by wave after wave of hackers and hacking groups.It would, therefore, be safe to assume that websites around the world would be working night and day to ensure they cannot be hacked and have the best security possible. The insanely popular micro-blogging site, Twitter, however, doesn’t seem to be taking their security as seriously as one would expect. On USA’s Independence Day, i.e 4th of July, the Twitter account of Fox News was hacked. The hacker had complete control of what to tweet. What was especially worrying is the account had a ‘Verified’ sign on it so people would take whatever they wrote seriously. And they went in for the kill. They spread rumors that the American President, Barack Obama had been asassinated. What is especially worrying is that Twitter took over 5 hours to res...

Hargreaves Return A Disaster, But It?s Not Over Yet
2010-11-07 16:59:00
Owen Hargreaves was a surprise inclusion in yesterday?s starting line-up against Wolves. The midfielder hadn?t started a first team game for over two years after a long battle with tendonitis in both knees. Hargreaves? last first team appearance had been at the end of last season had been as an 89th minute substitute against Sunderland in early May. Hargreaves was one of England?s best players during the 2006 World Cup; at that point he was still playing for German side Bayern Munich. In the 2006?07 season, Hargreaves broke his leg, which kept him out of most of the season. Hargreaves played five games for Bayern, all in the Champions League; he also made five appearances for England. Hargreaves was consistently being linked with a move to Manchester United for almost a year, it was finally announced that he would join and he did on the 1st July 2007. He made 34 appearances for United in his first season, scoring two goals. His second season with the club was hampered by injurie...

Evo disaster from hailstorm in Austin TX
2009-03-26 23:58:00
Central Texas, including the city of Austin and the surrounding suburbs, was hit by a sudden and massive hailstorm late in the day Wednesday the 25th. Thousands of cars were damaged across this broad area, particularly in parking lots and car dealers. One such dealer is the local Mitsubishi dealer, which after the storm looked like ground zero after an airburst. A nice line of Evos and a Ralliart parked in front were all but destroyed: aluminum roofs, hoods, and front fenders were all trashed. Steel fenders and trunklids all dented. Windows were blown out. Some of the optional add-on aero trim was laying on the ground. One of our favorites, that we'd had our eye on, is pictured below. It appeared to us that everything else in the dealer's lot was also in bad shape: from what we could see across the lot nearly all the Eclipses had lost their big rear windows. The Lincoln Mercury dealer next door didn't escape either - but it does appear that they managed to get some cars ...
