The Millau Viaduct, designed by the English architect Lord Norman Foster, opens today! This shot, shows the viaduct as it crosses the cloud-covered valley of the river Tarn in Millau. Composed of seven slender soaring pillars, the 2.5km long bridge becomes the highest bridge in the world at 343 meters, creating a direct route between Paris and the Mediterranean coast. The bridge will be inaugurated by French President Chirac at a ceremony this morning.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater sounds more than a bit homoerotic.

Yeah thats about right.
Not sure about the inclusion of Rachet & Clank 3 though.
I heard it was bunk.

What's the availability of PS2s like down there in Cardiff?

The neighbour has just had to pay 200(!!!!) quid for a PS2, mem pack, 1 controller and 2 games. He doesn't even know what the games were as his wife picked it up today - but it's def not GTA:SA.

He's been looking all over and nowhere up here is selling them standalone due to shortages. I wish I had a garage full of the buggers. We should sell Bungers' so we can have a New Links Christmas night out.
