Awkward adventures at the porno store. Sordid and often funny tales of a porn shop clerk somewhere in the USA.
DRM in Windows Vista. You know, it’s actually getting quite difficult to find anyone who recommends switching to Vista and who isn’t also either a)working for Microsoft or b)just plain yanking your chain.
