Worst … commute … EVER – Surrey to Sydney

Mark Chapman

Re: That would be telling...

A possibility, interestingly most of these articles have talked of making local friends, and avoiding the expat community, although work in this case was 95% expat so maybe that was a factor?

Re: That would be telling...

Yeah been a very interesting series. I'd like though to find out what brought him back, he only went out in 2012 and seems to have fond memories, but what prompted another 55000 move within 2 years?

That would be telling...

"but went back to Blighty for … well that'd be telling wouldn't it" - I guess it would, it doesn't actually tell us why he did?

Blade Runner sequel might actually be good. Harrison Ford is in it

Mark Chapman

the short life span isn't a problem

Harrison Fords age isn't necessarily an issue. If you assume Batty died young due to physically pushing himself as a combat model, you could set the film a year or so after the first, have Deckard as an aged person rapidly going old due to the short life span (not being so active he doesn't just drop dead like Batty), it, would however answer the ambiguity of the unicorn.

Still likely be awful though...

Computer expert and broadcaster Ian McNaught-Davis dies at 84

Mark Chapman

The Computer Programme, MAC and the live prestel hack were definitely big influences on me choosing IT, so much so that 30 years or so later, I knew instantly who you meant by MAC, will be sadly missed.

Re: Thing is....

I seem to remember buying an upgrade kit for my spectrum in 83 (16-48k) which was pretty much that...

Influenced by Dilbert perhaps?

Creative Zen media player

Mark Chapman
Thumb Up

Actually the bundle's not bad

It integrates with Windows, converts from just about anything to a format the Zen can play (even the MS-DVR files on my media-center box), quick to transfer, and has never crashed even after transfering a couple of thousand tracks to it. Once you have the drivers on your PC, you can also use mediaplayer 10+ to do the transfering as well (and if mediaplayer has embedded the cover images in your audio files, they'll show on screen when playing on the Zen as well).

Previous player was a Creative Zen Xtra, so I know of the pain you talk about, but this just does what it's supposed to.
