Stuff I found interesting in other people's LJs ...

Pretty much every day I find interesting stuff in other people's LJs, but a lot of it is too personal on the part of the poster for me to point random people at. These links aren't, so I have no shame in sharing them with you.

aegidian's pictures of Tower Bridge. One of the many buildings that makes me glad to live in London.

fj's testing of new phone. Drool. Want. (I hadn't been going to replace my 8310 anytime soon, being very much in love with it and stunningly underimpressed with Richard's 7650, but I might just have to get an N-Gage when it comes out. Edge reckons it's crap as a games console, but I trust FJ!!'s hands-on report more than I trust Edge's "seen a video at a conference" one.)

vampwillow posts what those corporate disclaimers at the end of emails _should_ say. Not original, but I hadn't seen it before :P

Eeek, more pics at Gamespot! I need my thesis to be done so I can buy this! *looks frantically at work* Well, I suppose any incentive to get it done is good...

I am not so sure whether to be excited by the news that there is going to be The Sims 2... probably all our existing downloads will be obsolete... We've known there was going to be a Sims 2 for a few months now, since someone saw the ad wanting Maya artists in an industry paper, but this is the first official notice for the fans. Well, I'll reserve judgement until I see it. I'll have to buy a new computer before I'll be able to play it in any case, so it's just as well it's (at least) a year away.
