    Roald Dahl ...

    I've always loved Roald Dahl's books and I think The King's Peach ought to win it all ;-)

    was it just me?

    or was the social network not that good - quite interesting for us geeks i suppose but for a mainstream audience? - a bloke sets up a website and has a bit of a tiff with some posh boys - and that's it.....

    and justin timberlake just acts like himself in it...

    The names Sorkin...

    ... Aaron "I managed to make a total financial meltdown boring" Sorkin...

    There is a reason why authors write books and journalists write 2000 word articles - and this berk is the walking talking advert for it... He even manages to make Dan Brown look talented...

    As to the pompous little twerps who came up with a$$book, thy time will come... give it 15 years and at least one of them will be found dead, hanging by his nuts, wearing a gannex mac and suspenders... and re-runs of the Social Network will move across the face of AppleTV.

    True its not the first time that we've had a rumpstuffer at Caer Paravel - but at least the others weren't so damned obvious about it...
