PSone on your PSP cracked

Times like this make me regret trashing all my PSone games....
PSP owners rejoice. No need to buy PS1 games via PS3 and send over to PSP to play anymore... Hackers have created a PS1 emulator that your lower versions firmware can emulate.
I dun have all my PS1 games anymore, so for all of you like me with no PS1 games now, don't worry...
Expect a flurry of PS1 titles over at BT sites. ;)
Relive FFVII on PSP anyone?

Alternative Christmas Carol - for all ye soccer fans out there...

Funny and cool.... I'm sure you will try to sing to it like I did!!
Here are some examples below.
(more from the original bbc website)
(even more if you click view all comments at the said website)
(to the tune of Away in a Manger)
Away in a strange land
A Frenchman saw red
When midfield God Zizou
Brought down his bald head
Floodlights in the bright sky
Shone down on his dome
As Marco cried buckets
And ZZ went home.

Away in a strange land
A nod and a wink
Put paid to Wayne Rooney
And caused a great stink
Ronaldo was heckled
From Oxford to Crewe
But Fergie played cupid
To fix Ron and Roo.
(to the tune of Let it Snow)
Oh the Race for the league is hotting,
Man U and Chelsea are romping,
Mourinho likes to have a moan,
ere we go, ere we go ere we go!
Everton's board a hoping,
For Stadium with added Tesco's Shopping,
it will be a first across the land,
Watch the game, buy your Milk, buy your ham!
Oh Charlton what have you done,
Should have give Pardew more time!
But if you really want to survive the fight,
Les Reed out ・straight away ・NO TONIGHT.
The season is slowly dying,
And, Lord Stevens Christmas will be a fine un,
The FA are in Disarray,
Sack em All, Not Tomorrow, No Today!!
(to the tune of Silent Night)
World Cup Night
Holy Night
All was calm
All was bright

Then Lord Zizou turned to red
smashed the I-Tie with his head
Crowd sat in disbelie-eef
Sheer disbelief

Champions League Night
Holy Night
Arsenal's Dream
Taking the lead

Step up Larsson 28 mins to go
Destroys poor Thierry Henry and Co.
Wenger couldn't believe
"How could Zis happen to me?"

went to the JAL site...
NO internet check-in... CRAP.
then went to the Japanese version of the same website... surprise surprise... there IS internet check-in..
seems that JAL, like many other Japanese services, only offer some of their services to their own Japanese speaking people.
Biased? well, wot can we gaijins do? (even the word 'gaijin' is derogatory)
Heng I know Japanese.
Clicked on the icon and was brought to a log in screen.
No problem. I just completed my flyers registration and obtained my log-in info.
I logged in, and was brought to an error screen. It read:
Service available only to people registered in Japan.
ie. people with Japanese address, ie. Japanese only (and those peeps staying in Japan perm).
CRAP x infinity!!!!
I can't imagine how an international company will do well internationally if they only provide simple services exclusively only to their own people!
C'mon, even a relatively budget airline like Northwest has internet check in available for all!
JAL is ... (see title)!!!!!!!!
