Hi all

Announced elsewhere on the web - Life with Playstation is now available. For those interested in getting it, here's how I managed it:

1:Upgrade to ver 2.43
2: Install the folding at home application
3: Try to run folding@home - it will tell you there is an upgrade available, and that folding@home has been renamed
4: Download the upgrade (126Mb)


I'm off to give it a try now - to see if it is actually any use to us here in NZ!

I can confirm that the firmware upgrade is not required.

On face value, this seems cool but the NZ content makes it a load of pants. I mean Auckland only? And when I tried it, there were only sports headlines.

Post-geek, opinionated mediaphile, and natural born cynic. Jack of all genres, master of none.

Yep, I'd agree. News headlines haven't changed in the 2-3 days I've been checking. Checked at midday today, and Auckland was in the twilight. Not sure if the temp changes or notFrown

Has potential, but maybe released a bit too early?
