Woomera: Ghosts of Britain's space past

Matt D (Sub-Ed)

Not sure about the missiles...

... but no. 7 is certainly a Canberra and no. 8 looks like some kind of photo-recon Gloster Meteor, or, given the non-standard colour scheme, one which has been fitted with cameras to act as a chase plane or launch monitoring vehicle.

Iran unveils 'robot bomber'

Matt D (Sub-Ed)

You missed the best bit...

According to the BBC report:

"President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the plane could serve as a "messenger of death", but that its key message was one of friendship."

Good job they pointed out that this was supposed to be a friendly gesture, as otherwise the unveiling of a robot drone bomber could easily be misconstrued as, y'know, a bit aggressive.

It's not harsh enough.

As a former moderator on this august site, may I just add that I feel there should be more mention of death and burning for transgressors in the moderation rules?

That is all.

Microsoft enlists faceless girl band as face of Windows 7

No original members.

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with having a band with none of the original members left. It is a bit like Trigger's Broom, but both Dr. Feelgood and Nepalm Death continued to tour long after all the original members had left or, in one case, died.

And 'Overload' was ace.
