I've covered it in my FryUp newsletter...

(Shameless self-promotion: if you want to read this week's Computerworld FryUp, quickly go to http://idg.net.nz/signup and errm sign up. The email should be sent out in about 30-40 mins.)

Just had a chat to James Coleman on Radio Live.  Top stuff.

Also pays to note that Trademe are very cool.  They've asked for proof of ownership to cover their rears, but otherwise are happy to let it run for a bit.

And it's made Wikipedia too!

That Wikipedia entry's missing the Geekzone stuff and TradeMe auction though.

Cheers.  It's damn hard work coming up with answers, so I've only selected some of the more funny questions.  There's no way I can get to all of them.

Insanity.

Maybe he could start outsourcing some of his questions here and we can come up with answers!

I'm trying I'm trying!!
You have to discount that number because half of them are stupid things like "can I have a buy now" and "will it fit in my lounge".

If you want to see all the unanswered questions, here's a snapshot (all 500kb of html Surprised):

I think the cup holder question at least deserves an answer.
