Will this be a good thing for Ahmed?

1) The school and Police have been shown up.

2) Meeting Chris Hadfield.

4) Meeting Obama.

I hope things go well for him.

Scripts

The fall of Moffat.

From the best writing I have seen of DW, now the stories are contrived and messy.

Best stories of the reboot will always be the relaunch Moffats in 1 2 3.

Best Blink, then Girl in the Fireplace, followed by Empty Child/Doctor Dances.

Since he has become show runner the stories have lost their magic.

Someone please help him get that magic back.

My thoughts

Baggage does not help.

So not keen on Tristan Farnon, slightly annoying childrens presenter and the professional northerner.

Tom Baker at first unsure as he replaced the first one I remembered, ended up being one of the best.

But baggage goes both ways with Wurzel Gummage.

Current Doctor is too well known from previous work.

To be honest SM was let down by poor funds and some silly scripts. CE on the other hand let down the fans with his lack of interest.

Re: Simple solution for google

Advertisers brought it upon themselves.

I started blocking adverts when they invented pop up adverts, and hover over, and animated, and noisy ones.

Non animated quiet banner ads NEVER bothered me, I find the new craze of drop down menus stuck at the top of a web page much more irritating.

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.
