I recognize that voice

My friend and sometimes ASU guitarist is the voice of the big cheese.
Can you guess which guitarist this is?

IT Crowd DVD subtitles in leet

The IT Crowd DVDs have just shipped -- with subtitles in leet! The IT Crowd is a convulsively funny British TV show about sysadmins, created by Graham Linehan, who is best known for writing the classic show Father Ted.

The IT Crowd's first six episodes ran last year on Channel 4, and was widely shared online, resulting in major commercial success, critical acclaim, and a renewed contract for another season of the show.

I was privileged to consult a little on the show, and I was able to connect Graham with uber-geek Yoz Grahame, who suggested that the disc carry subtitles in leet (or 1337), the letter/number substitution code used by gamers, hackers and other net-dwellers.

The disc is region-locked to Europe, but I hear that a US version is coming shortly. Link (Thanks, Damien!)

Sprint Winning Wireless Broadband War

"Faster EVDO revision A deployment, fewer restrictions"

Great article on the differences between the Sprint and Verizon Wireless Broadband products. I have known for quite some time that we are providing a better offering, and I am delighted that some else is seeing the same thing.
