The Dallas-bound flight was diverted to Nashville after several passengers reported smelling burning sulfur from the matches

  4. And, there was me wondering what your take on the government’s announcement on legislation re ‘copying to other media’, or EMI’s apparent adoption of DRM free mp3s. Instead we get the fart story.

    That’s what I like to see :-)

    I didn’t realise blogging was like doing a wedding disco – “Got any comments on DRM, mate?” :-)
