Re: Justice

Just think, image it was YOU that was accused, but of course you were nowhere near.

Would YOU be happy bieng denied anonymity?

Rape accusations

I think there should be anonymity towards suspects unless found guilty.

All accused have to face a lifetime of "Did he do it?"

They need the same protection as the accusers.

But then I think there needs to be different levels of rape as masked at knifepoint is not the same as two pissed out of their mind people.

This has to be discussed as open minded adults and not gut reactions.

Re: Charles 9

Many recent blockbuster games have versions with no DX and no Windows. See the PS4.

That uses BSD a sort of Free Unix, like Linux.

I think if they can do a PS4 version a Linux version is not that hard.

I want to try this

But I have a no data package as the bill is paid by work. But it would be great to pre load at home or work via WiFi then use it in the wilds.

Also many places with no phone signal, which I noticed once before taking on a rather deep ford.

But if good I would be tempted to get a tablet for this, something like the Hudl.

As to power I have a car, and I can take it along BOATS

Re: Poor choice of words?

I think you may be right about the noises.

The only places I can get a complete undisturbed nights sleep is in the middle of nowhere, traffic noise is horrible, but wind in trees - yawn, zzzzzzzzzzz.

I seem to be managing on 6 or so hours after disturbances.

Perhaps I need to see the doctor and get a prescription for a holiday in Cornwall.

Real/32 was released.

As to 95 I went from Real/32 with 1 screen running Windows for Workgroups (I had the server) to 98 and Netware.

Next few games

Well I have been looking

For a start until the pricing is sorted (£40 <> $40) I will be avoiding Destiny year 2 DLC The Taken King. Activision are greedy sods and should be retailing for £30 at most for the DLC.

But look what comes out soon.

Fallout 4, I enjoyed 3 and NV so really looking forwards to it.

And next year Uncharted 4, my most anticipated game.

I have reversed into spots since I passed my car test.
