DAB works fine - its the fcuking accountants who messed it up
DAB works fine if the broadcasters used it the way it was designed to be used. Its the bean counters who want more channels squeezed into each multiplex to create more revenue, which then results in the bitrate being reduced. Also DAB was not designed for local services.
P.S. I worked at KW when DAB was first demo'ed
Write your own
Why don't you write your own, Verity, you could use all the correct jargon and even confuse some of the most expert computer nerds. Throw some comedy in and you're onto a winner. You have enough fanbois of your own who would rush out to buy a copy.
Go for it, girl!
It's always "The end of the world is nigh"
If the end of the world was now all these NWO, biblical end of days, etc pundits would lose their source of revenue selling their shite DVDs, books, water filters and similar junk.
Mines the one with "Don't Panic!" written on the back
Didn't the Gemini an Mercury capsules have something similar, Apollo too if I remember correctly.
Dont try this at home!
I was stung by a bee (or wasp) when I was six years old. It did no permanent damage (as far as I know), but I cried my eyes out all the way to the doctors surgery.. Also it made no permanent improvement.
This is the sort of science experiment I like. I might have paid more attention to science classes at school if they did experiments like this.
The earth moved for me looking at Jennys picture ( or was that just flatulance)
I know this is the wrong place to ask technical questions, but WTF here goes...
Does anyone know how to configure ISA 2006 firewall to allow EDNS packets through?
Yes, I have googled and searched Technet, but no joy.
Many Tvs will be scrap
Nobody has thought about the millions of portable TVs. Do you think those will work on Freeview with a 6 inch ariel? As for mobile phone with built-in DAB, will those work using the headphone lead as an ariel? If the authorities get their way and force everyone onto digital TV/radio, then portable listening will be a thing of the past (apart from MP3).
Are companies going to run their finance systems on the cloud? Or their personnel systems? There is as much likelyhood of this as there is of the UK shutting down FM radio by 2012. (But that's another story)
They are called blow-up dolls with a puncture.
Sarah, you should be ashamed
"you're branes" or your branes. I accept the mis-spelling as artistic licence, but I think yours should be revoked.
Where did you learn your english? Sorry, I forgot, you're a Yorkshire lass. Only us southerners speak english proper.
And yes, I know that last sentance is not grammatically correct.
It was pilot error that caused the Airbus crash not computer error.
Look at it closely
It appears to have twin contra-rotating rotors, but they are very closely spaced. How does that work? They must crash into each other.
Might be good for zero-G boots in spacecraft
