Well ever since the Nokia 8210 came to market in September 1999 the only new features of a Cellular Radio Telephone (CRT) has been a colour screen, higher resolution colour screen, increased phone memory for contacts and SMS, oh and stupid features people dont want like "mobile Internet" (WAP - WTF), perhaps a CCD okay thats alright, so is this any surprise?
This is a non-story and easy for them
First why the fuck am I on 18.104.22.168 - what the fuck is wrong with just 2.14? Why the fuck go from 22.214.171.124 to 3.0? What is the fucking point of the two middle zeros? How many wasted zeros have been sent across my Virgin Media line every time I click on a website? This stuff has contributed to my trigger capping.
Secondly - meh. Maybe there is something in the latest .14 release that will grab version 3 as soon as it's released? Firefox is installed on every single Linux PC and 99% of Windows XP machines. Okay it's not installed on Vista as it's probably not compatible but this is still a serious number of computers.
Anyway, what the fuck is a Guinness world record, usually I hand over a fiver for a pint of it (and get a glare if I expect change these days with oil at fifty euros a tin)
RE: 1TB is not enough
Excuse me Sir, But I (like many tens of millions of other people) use a Linux system here at home and create my documents with Apple Open Office. I have been doing this since around 1989 when I purchased Linux from a Shareware catalogue obtained from an advert inside "Amstrad Action" magazine. Though my house now has more shelves containing disc boxes than I would like 1.44MB is certainly enough for documents!
"Both companies have been through savage job cutting in the recent past, so the risks of been [sic] taken over are more than mitigated by the exanded [sic] career potential."
Basically, who is going to listen to your opinion when you can't even use correct grammar or spelling?
But I want to be Open
I actually want to have an unsecured wireless access point to provide a public service for passing phones, DS'es, laptops even. It's easy to set the hardware up so my own network (including another wireless AP but with WPA2) is seperate from it. Is there any way to sensibly achieve this? Do I need hotspot software? RADIUS?

Hi mate, you do make fair points and try to make a balanced argument (nice one) but you are forgetting something very important - Vista is SHIT.
Crap analogy. Extra lanes on the motorway means the "middle-lane hoggers" simply move from lane two on a three lane motorway to lane three on a four lane motorway meaning there is still only one lane to pass these morons creating a bottlenext. Doesn't happen to broadband lines.
I have two subnets at home. The first router has QoS and has things like the VoIP phones, the xbox and an unsecured wireless access point set to 1mbps. Then I have a Sonicwall which hosts my server, 5 pcs and a WPA secured access point. Occasionally I see a bit of web/email/msn messenger/psp traffic over the unsecured wifi but thats what I set it up for, as a bit of a public service. Is this wrong then?
RE: It does not matter...
Err... while carrying your Insurance and MOT certificate used to be a good idea as if you were pulled over this would save the copper from giving you a producer and increase the chance of you getting off whatever they have pulled you over for (not needed so much now Insurance and MOT status is on the PNC), but keeping the V5(C) / Registration Document in the car is plain stupid! If someone steals the car and it comes with the registration certificate then it is really easy for the their to sell the car on!
I thought it was just me...
...but glad to see others saying Dominos is sh*t and over priced. Having worked for them in the past (10 years ago now wth) I know that back then at least, every pizza cost less than £1.00 in "raw materials".Where I live in Mutley they do a BOGOF on collection but it's £15 for two large pizzas! My advice to anyone local is go to St. Judes Grill. Much better value AND a far superior pizza. They will even take orders over the phone!
Does this mean we will get to see the lunar rovers and all the other stuff left behind by the Apollo missions (or err is there actually nothing there because the Americans never walked on the moon?)
Lets face it
If you're using XP now then sooner or later you'll be using Vista. I'm going to wait until Service Pack 2 though; XP is a (relatively) stable and mature OS and can be nicely tweaked to run just as you want - whats the point in upgrading right now?
