The news that continues to come out of Asia is just horrific - it's getting increasingly difficult to watch the news each day - and I feel it would be insensitive to continue aimlessly blogging about technology, my life, music and other such trivialities without first acknowledging the awful conditions now affecting millions of people as a result of this global disaster.  If you're in the UK, you'll probably want to consider donating to the relief efforts via the Disasters Emergency Committee.  Elsewhere, you'll find an excellent set of resources and ways to help via Google.  My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.
