While You Were Sleeping

While You Were Sleeping was a well-received romantic comedy starring the luminous Sandra Bullock and the irrepressible Bill Pullman.

It’s also the name of a regular section here at Kotaku, where we round up all the best news coming in overnight, to save you trawling down the page for an excuse to not start work. Don’t say we’re not good to you!

It's not technically gaming news, but The Empire Strikes Back Director Irvin Kershner died overnight. First Leslie Nielson and now this?!

This is the best quote ever: a South Korean politician defends his decision during the latest Korean crisis with the words "this isn't Starcraft"! I wonder if Kim Jong is a fan?

    Is Kotaku seriously chuggy for anyone else at the moment? Firefox is jamming, main page takes ages to load and whole thing is really slow.

    Dual core CPU 2gb ram windows 7

      Some people have established that it seems to be the Telstra ads in particular that cause the slowdowns.

      Which I've been getting on a dual core with 4Gb ram, windows 7.

    Yeah it's definitely a bit slow for me too. Too many flash ads on one page me thinks... it' makes my smooth scrolling.. unsmooth scrolling.

    Also, never noticed this before, but I love the Air Force ad commented in the HTML for this page. Very clever!!

    Anyone else see this?

    Wasted opportunity to have painted the pipes green and played the super mario theme.
