With that much power it would have been tamed nicely.
Sorry but torque steer terrifies me. Rather handle oversteer.
The 4C though, sounds fantastic.
And wondered why they didn't reply.
I needed omitec not omnitec
Took me a few days to work out why I did not hear from them. I had misread the instructions on my Hawkeye leaflet.
I saw what you did there!
BTW we are looking at new work phones and the one feature I would like is remote play!
Normal TV, the TV speakers are good enough.
Films and games, I have a 5.0 system for that.
(Floor standing fronts rather than sub)
And my centre uses a microwave bracket as speaker brackets were too flimsy.
To say the PVRs from Humax?
2 craters done!
We are still on QE2 here, still going strong after 60 years
The carrier or the delivery company?
Anyway should it now be Viraat?
But would their ICBWM make it that far?
Intra Continental Ballistic Washing Machine
May be best medium term option to shut it down and reopen a new wholy owned company, take on the staff but new management.
Howver I keep thinking "Who is next?" and it could be even worse.
Why are they not rebuying BT Cellnet?
I have had to listen to someone moaning on about this regularly.
Says you have to pay it if you go on holiday,wel I never have, I just holday in the south west.
Doesn't think that we pay more on our road fuel taxes.
Take out mortgage, loans ect
food heating clothes electric gas transport
Will leave out toys.
£7 per person per day
Includes fuel for my car. Gas electic shopping for food.
I bet a lot of companies would like to win that.
Thought it was a new article but was an older one
Just had a huge picture of Turdoch.
NOT VERY PLEASANT!
Your mouse moves then something covers up what you are reading.
Lots of meaningless little pictures, why do we need them?
Since the revamp I had THAT come up
I won't touch any of his papers, I won't buy into his TV empire, I avoid any of his companies as much as possible.
Yes like I am going to buy 3 papers, watch a few news channels just to find out all the thoughts on an event.
Google news increases traffic flow, and enables people to use multiple news sources easily
How are people going to find their news stories?
I use the UK one daily, great for checking through a story
And horrid to use on PS4, I hope the PS3 version is not as bad
I stopped watching C5 when the logo returned, I emailed them, deleted the timers, told them about it.
But according to C5 their logo is more importatnt than viewers
Michael Portillo works well as he likes history and likes railways, he was also responsible for signing the paperwork keeping the Settle & Carlisle Railway open. Yes they had a railway enthusiast as a public transport minister.
BTW I did watch Torchwood and Gavin & Stacey but that purple blob just turned the channel off for me.
Distracting on utv1 to 4 as well
C4 HD might as well not be there logoing a HD channel - moronic!
TBH this would be something for the government to ban - on screen channel logos.
Great British Railway Journies is one of the best programmes on TV!
<-------------- Michael grabbing one of his jackets
And before it was wrecked, Bob the Builder (Neil Morrisy version).
Their Christmas special was once the highlight of the day.
I stopped watching for two reasons.
1) The logo was bloody irritating
2) The programmes were poor
Prefered BBC Choice
Done it with non red book CDs after 3 faulty I gave up. Non red book is a fault.
Done it with crap filled DVDs, cannot get to the film.
It got to the stage I stopped buying that companies DVDs, having to rip and burn a brand new DVD just to watch it was taking the piss.
So cut out the first stage.
Yes sales are lost due to forced adverts.
Are a real pain since they dumbed down.
Since I hit classic view as soon as I log in it missing things, send invoice classic view becomes send money.
They need to completely redo Paypal, try by putting it back to how it was.
The result will have huge implications for the cloud industry, I am following this with interest.
My personal thoughts are that local Irish and EU laws matter more in Ireland and the EU than any US laws. Basically the US has no jurisdiction in Ireland. MS may be between a rock and a hard place but MS US cannot demand that MS IE breaks local laws.
To be honest it was a pain, wouldn't seed properly, so I stuck it on Youtube instead.
But if it had been taken down by the copywrite organisations could I have complained?
I wanted to torrent as I don't like Youtubes framerate changing.
I filmed at 16x9 anamorphic 50Hz, I wanted it kept to 16x9 50Hz.
In the end someone hosted it for me for a few days to get the AVI.
As you have read above, I tried to use TPB to distribute a video I shot, to people I knew. So that was fully legal and my distribution method is now being blocked.
Is my work phone, allowed to make personal calls provided we do not take the piss.
Now the people who make the most personal calls use the phone the least they do not exceed contract.
Yes I make 4 or 5 personal calls a week. But as I am not sales noot many work calls.
HOWEVER. I do get called, can be anytime except at night.
A company Sony were able to ignore until the yanks made them.
Was fun being able to play a macraprovision DVD and record it to tape. (Needed to return a film to producers and wait for remaster as the layer change went wrong).
The recording was anamorphic and the downmixed to pro logic was more annoying than the drop in resolution. This was with a very expensive Sony VCR.
Anyway why did Sony go DRM?
Well it is the fault of all the people who got Vhs rather than the much much better Beta format. Since the second worst video format ever beat a better format Sony needed to guarantee a source of media, so they bought a few music and film studios.
Just think if you had bought a Sony Sanyo or Toshiba VCR rather than that Vhs crap we may not have had one of the main innovators dragged down the DRM route.
Just for fun my Sanyo VTC-M40 still works, just need a post DSO Freeview box since my Freeview PVRs were killed off by DSO.
It was a DDOS, and I am wondering who's next.
XBL then PSN, will they try it on STEAM?
"Hahaha we have disabled xxxx!"
Where xxxx is your gaming network PSN XBL etc.
Cue a large number of angry gamers.
Imagine if you could not play your favourite game and you knew of one of the hackers.
Would you be able to resist giving them a really good kicking?
Really bad as in a really shit game, there are a few and luckily most of us avoid them.
Stupid idea trying to ban GTA5, may be ban a game if it is really bad, but GTA5 is pretty well liked.
Personally I prefer to play as a goody, baddy CAN be fun, but I do not enjoy killing NPCs which are not a threat. Morally ambiguous is also no real issue.
So if an alien is shooting at me, or even just an alien soldier, it will be wiped out. People trying to kill my character, bye bye.
But killing shop keepers, prostitutes, non shooting Police, no thanks.
It is possible to play the Infamous games as a baddy with good intentions without wiping out huge amounts of ordinary characters. Wipe out the baddies violently.
Yet I really enjoy morally ambiguous games, some of my favourite characters are like this (Nathan Drake & Joel for example)
And it is published on a .co.uk domain
Was a late 80s one a workmate used to own.
I have had quicker accelerating cars, one a sportyish hatch, the other a 4 door saloon.
One of them was an Avenger based hatch back. 8 sec 0 - 60 (timed) from 1600cc
The other was a German built luxobarge with an engine from Merseyside (under 8 sec timed)
Lets just say that the 1970s car is still one of the best handling cars I have driven.
lives in one of the best places in the world,
I didn't know he lived in Cornwall!
He knows lots of words but not how to use them.
I also notice I am from from being his only hater, he is so annoying that sometimes I could smack him!
No, got a dual boot into Mint Cinnamon for that
Thinks it is XP POS version support for a few more years.
Yes and you can have a trip on it
No that is the music division.
