have been greatly exaggerated.

Haven't been online much lately. Been quite busy. I've handed in all my coursework now and my exams start in five days. Naturally, within the past week Valve released their Portal 2 testing initiative thing and Diablo 3 was unshackled from it's retailer-enforced prison.

I tried to resist. God knows I tried. But Diablo is as faustian as its namesake. I'm working on getting one of those IV poles and just hooking a solution of pure caffeine directly into my veins. I have revision on one hand, Diablo on the other and sleep on another, and I only have two hands so one of them has to go. And it sure as hell is not going to be revision or Diablo.

And now for something completely different.

This is something which has been bugging me for a while, and I'm not quite sure why. Really, it shouldn't bother me, but sometimes I'll be working on some mindless, repetative task and my mind will wander, and if it happens to wander into the no-mans land of this particular subject, I will become indecently frustrated for no reason I can fathom. My problem is this: Isn't Trojan the worst possible name for a condom company?

It's like when a company calls their product something like 'Fisherman's Friend' and you have to wonder if the marketing guys recognised the double entendre and called it that on purpose. The difference is that I can see no possible way in which the name Trojan could benefit them. To anyone who's heard of the Trojan Horse the reason should be obvious; The Greeks hide in a big wooden horse after a ten-year siege and say to the Trojans "Yep. We're surrendering. As a trophy for your victory take this not-at-all-suspicious hollow horse which does not contain our soldiers, no siree Bob." The Trojans or, as we shall hereafter be referring to them, the Stupid Bastards pat themselves on the backs and bring the horse into Troy.

Not to spoil the ending, but the Stupid Bastards all ended up dead, since there's no cure for a terminal lack of common sense. I probably shouldn't have to extend the metaphor any further than that for you to understand where I'm co- what my poi- what I'm saying.

And that's how my revision has gone.

No worries!
