Four walls, washbasin, prison cell…

If you asked my beautiful and patient wife where I’d spent the last month, she would without a doubt — and with nary a pause — state that I’ve spent the last month in the office, writing and testing to the point of collapse. And she’d be right.
I’ve been working and working and working and working and working, and then, just for a change, working some more. Behold, for example, not one, not two, not even three but four reviews of mine, published today by CNET.com.au. There’s even a somewhat spurious reference to Garthe Knight in there — see if you can spot where* :
Topfield TF6000PVRt: “Topfield’s PVR line improves with the TF6000PVRt, but the wireless capability and general setup could still do with some improvement…”
Kodak EasyShare Photo Printer 350: “The EasyShare 350 is a capable and nicely designed photo printer with a specific appeal for mobile phone camera users…”
Belkin N1 Router: “There comes a point in every reviewer’s career where they’ve seen too many routers, and simply cannot write a description of the dull, ugly things any longer. Thankfully, today is not that day…”
Lexmark X5470: “With every generation of its market leading iPod personal music player, Apple’s snipped a couple of millimetres off the size of the unit in just about every direction. Now, the physical laws relating to the conservation of energy state that all that extra mass has to have gone somewhere…”

*And bonus points if you knew who Garthe Knight was without having to look it up.
