The Onion reports that "Heroic Computer Dies To Save World From Master's Thesis":

A courageous young notebook computer committed a fatal, self-inflicted execution error late Sunday night, selflessly giving its own life so that professors, academic advisors, classmates, and even future generations of college students would never have to read Jill Samoskevich's 227-page master's thesis, sources close to the Brandeis University English graduate student reported Monday.

Something to make good use of while working on your thesis/dissertation project is the Thanks. No. website. It'll tell all those people who are constantly sending you forwards and other time-wasting email to shove it, but in a wordier, less rude way.


If you're like me (and, of course, you are), then you probably email lots of files and upload lots of photos on a regular basis. Check out this Mozilla add-on that allows you to drag, drop, and upload (or email). (via Lifehacker)

    I want to give props to that noble notebook. Many of us wish that we had a computer of such self-sacrificial character in time of deep personal need.

    I tried the ‘Thanks. No’ website on someone, which puts it very politely really doesn’t it, but just got sworn at by the recipient, lol!

    Thanks for your post, silfrenwulf. Sounds like your “someone” is doubly rude: spamming and swearing!

    Too right Rachel. What is it with people who simply won’t listen? lol
