Thumb Up

Marvellous!

I've just had it recommend Screamers 2 : The Hunting (cert 18), Kill Switch (cert 18) and The Heartbreak Kid (cert 18). This could provide hours of pointless entertainment!

Power consuption

Is there any chance you could start to publish the power consumption figures (where available) for these devices, especially the ones targetted at the SOHO market?

Ditch satnavs, urges ambulance chief

David Morris
Thumb Down

Comepletely agree

Several years ago, we had to call an emergency ambulance out for my Dad. The emergency services had the full address but couldn't find the house. Why? Because the road name reported by the satnav (a major road on the outskirts of Sheffield) was incorrect. I ended up waving at the ambulance as it went past trying to attract the drivers attention. The ambulance crew weren't local which didn't help matters. I've just checked on Google maps and Multimap / Live and they both show it incorrectly as well. There's obviously no hope...

BSOD?

Presumably the BSOD has been replaced with a Red Screen Of Death to avoid screwing up night vision?

Encryption software

Truecrypt. Now at version 6.1a. Works with XP, Vista, Mac and Linux. www.truecrypt.org

I've been using it for several months now with no problems.

BlackBerry Bold drops off Orange website

Bold order

I tried to order a BB Bold from Orange this morning and was told that due to compatibility problems, it would be several weeks before they were available. I've gone with an 8820 instead with the offer of an upgrade later.

BT claims UK broadband boost breakthrough

David Morris

Don't overlook other gear in the house

I had horrendous problems with my broadband due to poor signal to noise ratios. After much experimenting and general buggering around, I traced the problem to an old Sony surround sound system. Despite it being nowhere near the incoming DSL cabling and having no phones plugged in to the line supplying the DSL, turning the surround system off increased the SNR to such an extent that my stable rate went from 2Mb to 4Mb. I'm now the owner of a very nice Yamaha AV receiver.

Birdsong

I've just put it on on my Genus DAB radio that's plugged in to the line-in on my PC. The birdsong channel is called 'Birdsong'. There's a pigeon on there at the moment. Where's my 12-bore?

Paris, 'cos she can chirp in my ear any time she likes...
