I know (sort of - related to my wife) one of the education team.
She is always busy, they are at exhibitions.
Got a photo somewhere of my sons next to a Bloodhound exhibition model.
Yes it is inspiring the young, lots of these type of projects did, remember the interest Beagle 2 raise even though it broke?
You do realise that is the current rank of the driver don't you?
Retune and mad deletion time again!
An annoying game
Fed up of it
I think I simply will not bother
Spock & McCoy
Why are they supposed to do the maps?
Why not the red shirts?
Or do they die too easily?
Re: Clip them together..
Too much effort
I'm sticking with day socks!
I just match the Monday sock to the Monday sock - easy
Scott & Virgil are easy as well.
OK so I have two weeks of daily socks - different though and some Thunderbird socks but all of mine are pairable
Well they are both bus companies and I was sure it was First group!!!!
First Group are not competent to do it, look what happened to the East Coast Main Line when they bid way over the odds.
Keep it for HDTV
Stuff 4G we want better HDTV
I have <aname>.org.uk, someone else has <aname>.co.uk, so who gets <aname>.uk?
Widdicombe or May
I'll give you Widdicombe
May is not too bad, better than Short or Waquie
Flint or Menche not bad at all.
Group Of Pictures
What does it have to do with politics?
That democrat woman
Looks like Spocks sister.
My first thoughts were
Freeview picture quality
Degraded over the years
Back in 1993 BBC1 looked fantastic on DTTV, really really good. (I know don't be pedantic)
This was with a Wega tube IDTV. DVDish bitrates.
Since then they have been squeezing the bit rate down and down.
Now BBC 1 is actually quite ropey.
Using DSTV BBC1HD is not that different in picture to how BBC1 SD used to look when it first started.
The last change to DSO really made BBC1 look bad. (Oh and above IDTV was not compatible - good job I sold it to someone with a sat box)
Knicking the broadcast spectrum.
I wanted high bitrate HD not more bloody mobile frequencies.
For decent HD you to go BluRay now.
Want to see poor HD, try Gardeners World with a busy picture - looks like SD.
Re: Oh. There you are, annonytwat thumbs-downer.
I noticed, 2 down
Don't worry I upvoted it!
Longer life vs exercise
Thought this watching joggers and cyclists.
Lets say 1 hour a day over 50 years.
Over 2 solid years exercising.
Will they live that much longer?
How many people won't touch with bargepole?
I don't, one of the reasons I won't have it is Murdoch, for fun the others are.
I want my own kit not substandard this is what you have like it or lump it kit.
There are other uses
It is getting popular in the model railway hobby.
Short runs of unusual wagons.
Base coach bodies for sticking etched sides on, interiors done, underframe not bad, etched brass sides look good, in smaller scales.
Parts for models.
Re: Well, a size reduction is always nice, but ...
Why Fifa - sounds totally boring.
Why not something fun?
Or all 3 Uncharted games?
Quite a few don't
Lad opposite me - got PS2, no PS3, wants one
Warp 2.15 thankyou
I see someone posted while I was calculating it
Win 95 launch
I remember where I was
The launch of Real/32, now that was a good operating system
Re: Roll your own, keep your sanity and your checkbook safe (maybe)
I do as much as I can,
Strip a quad cam V6 to change valve seals - check
FIt LPG to a car - check
Build a PC - check
I used to run an old car and I knew it inside out, replaced lots of bits, bigger engine, forest suspension ect.
Now I would not trust a mechanic to do the cam belt - one said to me do not need the locking kit - so why is it adjustable to fractions of degree?
LPG - seen professional systems mess up, my DIY install didn't
Am I superman then?
Built our last home PC
Rebuilt old components into a childrens PC
Changed a timing belt on my car 3 years ago, and doing again soon, and it is a quad cam engine and has multiple points of adjustment.
Yes, it is cheaper and less restrictive than buying a ready made.
I wanted multiple terabytes of HDD. Not bothered with absolute speed so got Samsung drives
I wanted a hot processor in my case a quad
I wanted XP Pro - still have to run some older packages
I wanted a BD Burner - video editing
Then bought suitable components.
Re: Hard as I try
I know one of the education team, I have seen a picture of my twins with her at a show.
And you can see the family likeness with my wife.
Re: New York to San Francisco
Less than a day for a HST, but then you would need to refuel it.
Proper high speed like the French are researching 10 hours
New York to San Francisco
Hmm I got to about 23 hours with Diesel and 16 if you used a TGV.
Proper not flying anymore airliner would have been about 2 1/2 hours
Airliners peaked in design a few years ago - nothing flying now as good as a decade ago.
Wing in ground effect is more efficient - cross oceans at low level using less fuels.
I think for land masses high speed rail is the best solution
Can't do that lesson
I had this at O level/CSE.
Put down 2 sciences, tech drawing, metalwork.
Couldn't do metalwork so had to do youarepeeing studies, managed a nice low CSE for it, I think 3 or 4 of us did it due to no metalwork.
lens sensors amd megapixels
Yes I have taken lots of lowish megapixel pictures of quite decent quality.
Lens good - well it is for a domestic video camera.
sensor - pretty good again, but low megapixels.
My last video camera was about 1.2MP and the quality was OK even at A4.
Newest does 6MP as it is HD and I have some nice pictures off it.
Minders, how tempting was it to wallop one?
One of the phones to me just had loads of red squares not obvious what they were.
Actually I find the version still on my home XP PC might be 7, may be 8, is very sluggish, seems to take a while to do anything, FF is quite quick in comparison. (I needed to compare 2 Ebay accounts).
Q8200 so no slouch.
My daughter recently got a new Win 7 laptop, she installed Firefox rather rapidly
Re: It's not cool to bash IE...
I have upgraded past IE8 on XP - Firefox 15
For XP with IE dead ended FF and co are the best browsers to use.
Re: Organic Better?
Do they taste nice?
Apart from small size sounds like a pre intensive UK farm
Re: Properly raised and butchered meat is better
Well in the UK we do not add hormones and antibiotics are only used when necessary.
Sheep as mentioned before are only paperwork away from organic, pasture cows - no problem, pigs should have room to run about.
Chickens - as long as free range.
So get decently raised meat and a decent butcher - you get decent meat.
Supermarket cheap stuff has not hung at all.
Re: Not sure...
No issue in the UK we have very high levels of control on livestock welfare
Re: I like the 'my recordings' UI
How did you get that many on it?
I think after 50 it gets rather full and that is BBC 1 hour shows, stick on longer stuff and even less can be stored.
Concorde did make money
For BA but Airbus pulled the airworthy certificate
Most people use Google or Yahoo - Bing does not sound like a search engine, but a tinplate toy manufacturer.
Re: If I was in London
I would have fake plates for the congestion zone
My car has show plates
Easiest way to get plates now, just use legal fonts and spacing - no issue.
4 MOTs passed
Manchester to the City of London in 5 minutes
But I know someone in a team aiming for 12 minutes, no number plates though.
Was sacked once
Was classed as constructive dismissal.
Was given shit jobs to try to get me to leave. But I wanted more experience. Did 2 years more than I wanted there.
Got me finally on trumped up charges of insufficient testing (machine which didn't work had different graphics type to the developer computers and I didn't link in ONE lib). Oh and the site was used as our test site.
For at least 10 seconds I thought who can look after the program, HR gave me leave now or go to meeting where sacking will happen.
First stop was job centre, straight on to benefits, took a month to come through due to constructive dismissal.
1) Been in current job a LONG time.
2) That employer shut shop locally.
Re: Doom is awesome
I enjoyed Doom for what it was as well.
Worst ever film must be the Bob Hoskins Mario one
I recommend the 3 BluRays of it, however you need a particular model of Sony BluRay player.
As to a remake - no thanks, they would use the wrong cast and the only actor suitable for Drake may be a bit too old, Elena looks like her actress though.
Re: I love the fact he did all that awesome stuff
No moonflights, no supersonic airliners
Re: One of the greats who'll be missed
No they weren't - footballists were never there.
When I was young two jobs were in favour.
Astronaut or traindriver
