Illuminati

Reasonable terminology

It is offensive when

men are made up to look like women for comedic purposes
1(4.8%)
white people are made up to look like black people for comedic purposes
17(81.0%)

I would feel comfortable using the following term to refer to people of African origin

blacks
6(15.8%)
people of colour
0(0.0%)
non-whites
0(0.0%)
negros
0(0.0%)
ethnic people
1(2.6%)
coloured people
0(0.0%)
Other
2(5.3%)

Computing Evening

Spent some time extracting data from a database for my Dad.

Discovered (with the help of trashcanglam and memtest86) that one of my memory sticks is knackered.

Got to play 1 on 1 CS:Source (again, with trashcanglam) - an experience that was more fun than is technically legal.

And now to bed.

Will try to get some more CS together, probably on Thursday...
