DIY: Make a laptop sleeve with a FedEx envelope

DIY: Make a laptop sleeve with a FedEx envelope - diyfedexlapsleeve.jpg

DIY site Instructables posts a tutorial on making a laptop sleeve from FedEx envelopes:

I was looking for a strong and waterproof material to make my own sleeve from and remembered that FedEx and the US Postal Service both use Tyvek (or similar) material for their envelopes. My sleeve fits a MacBook, but the design is easily adaptable for other sized laptops.

The project requires 3-4 envelopes, some felt and some sewing, and the result is a pretty good camouflage for your lappie as well. Thanks, Annie!

DOJ Pushes Microsoft to Produce Vista SP1 Beta in ’07

Wow, Hey Bill Gates your OS sucks, please send a Service Pack. K Thx.
DOJ Pushes Microsoft to Produce Vista SP1 Beta in '07 - It's unusual, but confirmation of the availability of Windows Vista's first service pack came Tuesday not from Microsoft Corp., but from the U.S. Department of Justice. Tucked into the government's 27-page joint status settlement report released late Tuesday was evidence that Microsoft will put the beta of Vista SP1 into users' hands before the end of the year. The report also confirmed Windows XP SP3, but did not specify beta or final release dates, although it said some code would be finalized this summer.

Microsoft has been loath to talk about either service pack, but has been particularly mum about Windows Vista SP1, a widely-anticipated bug update that some enterprise users are waiting on before deploying the new operating system. As recently as April, when Intel Corp.'s CEO Paul Otellini hinted that Vista SP1 would likely release in October or November, Microsoft refused to confirm any schedule. "We will continue to take customer feedback from programs like the TAP [Technology Adoption Program], and will ultimately determine an official delivery date as the service pack is nearer to completion," a company spokeswoman said at the time.

The Pirate Bay Launches Image Hosting

This is awesome. Hopefully this will show the competitors that their service is slow and sometimes over zealous with the deleting of some content. Go Pirate Bay!
The Pirate Bay Launches Image Hosting -

Us pirates know that The Pirate Bay team has been working on several new projects, with one of them becoming a competitor to YouTube. For now though, we’ve been blessed with BayImg, a unique image hosting service from TPB. Unlike sites like Photobucket and Imageshack, who will delete your photos if deemed “unfit”, BayImg lets you upload any image, uncensored, in over 100+ file formats.

So break out those photos of you shooting JFK and upload them without worry. BayImg takes no personal information from you and gives you a url for image deletion in case you got ahead of yourself. Tags are also available for easy browsing. Seems like a great service. So can it take on the big players? It’s quite possible.
