Online news aggregation and all-round awesomely funny site, Fark.com, has reportedly notched up its sixth millionth submission — we're not really sure though, as we haven't read the farking article.

Fark.com was one of the first user-generated news sites to appear on the Web back around 1999, and it has been a hit, especially with office workers, ever since. Users submit news stories with their own (usually witty, mostly offensive) headline, and if the modmins approve it, it appears on the site's main pages. A subscription model is available, too, called TotalFark, in which sucke…. users pay $5 per month (around $4.60 Australian). TotalFark allows users to look at potentially thousands of other threads that don't make the front page.

The selection of stories to hit the main pages is always a source of contention, as users claim the modmins often select headlines with mis-spellings and tired old cliches, purely because they will attract the most responses from users. Staple topics on Fark.com include the weekly Caturday thread, anything written by (or channelling) Ric Romero and paint huffer extraordinaire, Patrick Tribett.

Well done, Farkers. We salute you!

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
