Pity you weren't able to retrieve Bunny's reading glasses from the coffin!

When i was using google analytics just now i noticed that lifehacker was linking to my blog and what do you know, it was because of my dad's around review, first time too! Anyway hopefully Dad's around will get some more well deserved exposure thanks to lifehacker.

Random info:

For any of the gamers out there that use DA: It closes NFSU2 within 1 second on a 1.6Ghz Celeron M.

I should build a list of how long it takes to close each app tellme
