Geek party alert: It's 1234567890 UTC today!

1234567890day.png

For the general masses, it has to be one of the most obscure reasons to party ever, but for a true geek there’s a celebration to be had later today. Thanks to Stretchy for tipping us off about this one.

At exactly 11:31:30 GMT, the Unix time stamp will be 1234567890. Of course, those cheeky San Franciscans have decided to hold an official party from 2:31pm PST (an hour early to get the alcohol flowing), but there are other parties going on around the world.

Cursor-shaped oven gloves – what's on the menu?

oven-glove-mitt.jpg

If you’re like me, or Shiny fashion editor Gemma, you spend a lot of time staring at PDFs and Abobe Reader. Who knows, maybe unlike us you actually enjoy it and you want to see the scrolling hand when you get home from work, too.

It’s an authentic, pixellated, cursor hand, and you can bet your bottom dollar that after a week of use it won’t be so shiny white and clean. Even so, it’s bound to pump up your geek cred – and that’s what’s important in the kitchen, right? Right? Here – taste my risotto.

I might just marry this automobile-owner. When faced with a broken car stereo system, what did he do? He only went and popped in a CD-ROM drive from a PC, and lined it with a green kitchen sponge, to shock-proof it. Please tell me his side skirts are made from keyboards, and headlights from blue LED power button lights!…
