Perhaps people do not like porn
Not for prudishness ect, I like pictures of naked ladies but find porn off putting.
I do not want to see othermen's willies or naked men.
Re: First person on the dangerous persons' list
I like him, always on our side for a change.
The man who bust the super injunctions
Power buttons are easy to find, they are on the front panel of the PC
Re: All really good stuff.
PS3 games still look good*, I am playing games off both 3 and 4 at the moment, I do not feel short changed by the 3
* Well quite a few of them.
Bigger issue is lacklustre games. As an example the launch games one of them is in a series of 6 games, and the PS4 game is the second worse in playing enjoyment (only the PSP game was less fun). I even prefer the PS2 game when it comes to fun.
Tried multiplayer, prefered the multiplayer of the two PS3 games. Was more skill and map learning over reactions, and then they dropped Move support! And I am far from alone in this view.
Yes Sony since we have bought a PS4 I have played both Borderlands to death on the PS3, I played a LOT more online on a 2011 game than its so called 2013 sequel.
For new games coming out this year on PS4 only a PS4 remake of a game I have already played 3 times and a new RPG FPS are interesting me. I will get the new Borderlands game (on PS3).
2015 will be different as I will get Uncharted 4 and Order 1886.
Re: All really good stuff.
Yes I have a device to do that.
Re: He *was* Prime Minister h4rm0ny
You are welcome
And what would we ask John Major?
Did he ever consider taking a stake and hammer into Blairs office?
Re: He *was* Prime Minister (Dave Perry)
More than any I expect. Cannot see Call me Dave needing that many, nor even wrong Milliband if he got the job.
Re: He *was* Prime Minister
But I think that Blair needs them more than Major, or more than Cameron would ever need.
I do not feel the urge to smash in John Majors face. To be honest if I bumped into him I would probably chat.
Brown would get awkward question "Why did you sell the gold?"
Cameron "Hello Dave, can we have some nuclear power stations please?"
Clegg "Hello Nick, just remember being anti ID cards got you votes."
Milliband "Where's David?"
Re: But, but, but...
So we now know whose letter box to shit in
Will be two new licences soon
I am building some PCs for my sons, was a rush as we all wanted to avoid Win8
So two more WIn 7 licences .
Oh and they will be dual boot with Linux Mint Cinnamon 17
A different idea
How about one of the following?
1) Fit a catapult and a navalised Typhoon.
2) Refurbish any small jet powered by a Pegasus and use those.
Re: Hardly noticed
I checked BT web site, it was rubbish!
BBC worked well.
As everyone said very odd
Email worked, all the forums I use regularly worked, the load of crap my daughter looks at, didn't work.
So effing what if twatter is dead or something called tumbler was broken - who cares!
The friendface ripoff can't remember if that worked or not as I don't use it.
I could check my emails and read posts on fixing cars, what else do you need? (There must have been some porn available)
So MS are threatening the sacred cow of British life?
This needs to be more widely pulbicised. I would rather have my taxes paying for care of patients rather than paying off a bully of a company.
I work with some relatives of the head gardener
RIP, Never met him, but I know loads of people who knew him recently.
Last I heard he was working on creating more woodland.
When they get it right Sony get it really right, when they get it wrong well you all know what happens.
As someone whose entire tube TV purchasing history has been Trinitron based (remember those lovely FD Trinitrons from the 1990s) you do tend to watch what they are up to.
Back in the 80s and early 90s Sony kit had this aura of quality, which to be honest was earned, look at the home video market, was there ever a video recorder as well engineered as the SL-C9? Their last PAL deck was a rather good one, brilliant picture and sound but was not as well engineered as the C9.
They have managed to turn technical successes into commercial failures. They tried too hard for the cheap market where to be honest they are crap. I still cannot work out how they managed to screw Minidisc.
The TV division may make losses but their TVs are still good, among the better ones, losing that would be rather sad. But people want cheap not quality, look what happened to Pioneer.
HiFi - best to completely give up the cheap crap and stick with upmarket portables, mid range Home Cinema, and esoteric HiFi.
Viao best gone, stylish but they are not a PC company.
Imaging, well this is a core market, they need to work on this.
Games, they need to deliver on these games they promised.
Phones, make proper use of their imaging and audio brands, and their styling and really go for it
It used to be that if you bought something from Sony, you knew it would be good, it would last, and it would look stylish, now it is buyer beware.
They have a long haul ahead of them, but I think they have the reserves to make it.
I misread it as BOFH
Not that would be fun.
2 infections at customers this last fortnight. Both cases idiots clicking on attachments, and lack of knowleage on these nasties.
Yesterdays was full restore from backup and wipe offending PC clean.
We tell them, they still do it.
I think the security services need to borrow some people from Hereford to sort it out at source.
Mobile <> handheld
As I do not own any mobile games, basically not bothered, but I do own my own handheld games console.
Now that has in game purchases as well. One game one of my sons has as well and he spent money on a DLC gun.
But them some of these games are £20 - £30 and are made by biggish teams on big budgets. And yes I have been at work during breaks playing a handheld FPS.
You vs Your
They pronouce differently, I still cannot see the issue, seems like lawyer crap.
As to Skydrive, isn't that a Murdoch thing?
Well not all Vax vacuums are properly Vaxes either since the founder died. Some of them cannot even suck up water!
Did DEC VAX suck? Well some Vax vacuums do!
Wow the logos are totally different
And I cannot see how people can confuse them
JCB time agin?
Well that is what I thought of!
Re: What's a hood?

Re: Sensible of Nokia to keep Here...
My work phone is Android the old one was Symbian
The older phone had a much better satnav and maps
I thought that too,
Mind you I do not like the curved ones.
Re: The names...
Because you can have too many TVs of a size due to features, seen one manufacturer have 5 at one screen size
I'll stick with my Sony 46"
And my PS3 and PS4, lots of games and lots of films.
Pity Destiny is not released sooner
Re: An Excuse!
If I get asked that I will give the a choice,
XP, Linux Mint, or some other victim.
I need a Freeview HD box
And was considering the BT Humax offer.
Which is best for normal broadcast HD?
BT Humax Youview OR Humax Freeview HD?
I already have a Freesat PVR and an old Freeview PVR on its last legs
Why is everyone obsessed with them and not Klingons and Vulcans, or even Andorrans.
Re: I read the title and sub-head...
Another non believer.
Clipper was a fantastic tool, a geat way of making DOS database applications, which were fast to use, fast to write, reliable and flexible.
As to clone, no, just the natural progression of XBase.
Clipper (or CA-Clipper) was XBase, tons of tools, some excellent replacable database drivers, and still many programs in use.
All those great addons, Blinker, Funky (sp), Novlib, Advantage XBase Server, things like this made for some pretty powerful applications.
We were using serial comms libraries, Netware task libraries, client server libraries, lots of links to C as well, with our own C code.
Clipper was the pinnacle of Xbase not just a clone
I thought of CA-Clipper
Now that was good!
Re: This adds in my driving to the shop to buy the disc?
My daughter hates those sorts of films, she still likes animated though, and super hero films.
Teen angst gets her ratty.
Re: Good luck
MS have been feature removing from anything after XP.
A few older but used technologies have gone
Re: Support must end at some point
My last 1999 Sony TV picked up Freeview fine, sold because I went HD 4 years ago.
Re: Need they an app to stop wheels exploding
Not my fault, but it was bloody scary and I now have anxiety attacks if a BMW drives too close. The front wheel on the BWM literally exploded, then there was the head on in front of me, then I was the sad owner of a slightly bananad Omega.
Need they an app to stop wheels exploding
Then I would not have had my car written off.
Re: Alien Resurrection. 3 was not too bad(Gordon 10)
Those deaths were jarring but it was still much better than no 4
My favourite is Alien as Aliens is a bit American
I also prefer The Terminator to any of its sequels, short fast, to the point, good characters, good story.
Gave up half way through the penultimate series, was not worth the effort of MKV2VOBing it.
Re: Overly Harsh
I think you meant Alien Resurrection. 3 was not too bad
For more info.the BMW hit an oncoming car head on both were totalled, one of them spun into my car bananaing it, It took 5 months for my shoulder to recover.
My car was the only one which drove home.
Quoted £2500 to repair, so they wrote it off!
I had an accident in December, some minor injuries, and I do not have a Chromebook.
RIP my last car.
Just have a fear of black BMW 3 series driving near me in case they crach.
We only buy outdoor reared pork.
My farming relative does cattle.
What costs the NHS more?
There you go.
In the US
In the UK there is not the stupidity
HS2 should cost a fraction of that but someone somewhere screwed it, But at least it will help with flight option.
Antibiotics - £10 million there, phages research and crack down on stupid usage.
Water - spend some money on storage and piping it around.
Flight to Scotland - go by rail and use nuclear power stations to get zero carbon.
Paralysis - I think this is already not far away to be honest.
Dementia - I think post it notes were a good idea
Food - eat what is in season and encourage population shrinkage.
