in your field of vision actually has a name. They are called floaters. Generally they are harmless but irritating. In some (thankfully rare) cases you may require the services of a doctor.
This is something that I've always wondered about but never bothered to find out. Guess I can cross this one off my list.

AntiRiddle | Hints
There's a new game up and about on the net and it's very time consuming. The name is not terribly creative, but the puzzles are hard. How hard? Well there's a short tutorial to prep you up, then you're on your own (unless you seek some help). The first few puzzles are quite easy, think of them as warm-ups. Then it gets really hard unless you're like Grissom(CSI). Yup, there's quite a bit of CSI work to be done, ranging from analysing images to sound files. I gave up after realising I may need to download apps to figure out some puzzles.

You have to see it to believe it. An Xbox 360 modded into a laptop! If you're asking why, it's because you can. :)
Software that slows Windows
Ever wondered what type of software causes Windows to boot slower? Someone did a benchmark on various apps and the final results don't surprise me too much, except for BitDefender and the IM software. Generally, security software and tons of fonts are bad for fast boots. I've no idea why some IM apps seem to slow booting by quite a bit. I'm glad I'm running Miranda.
