He will for ever be the voice of Sackboy
My wife was using it all day, no problems
There are many many games not using Direct X, but they are not PC games.
My consoles have NOTHING to do with Windows yet have plenty of games.
A build for BSD or Linux should be reasonably easy.
Mentioned BSD first as many consoles use a fork of it.
I run XP on my quad home and 7 on quad work
BOTH multi task fine.
At home I can watch an MPEG encoder happily use 2 or more cores while burning software uses a little of another core.
Yes my PC is powerful enough to MPEG encode, and burn a DVD of a previous encode at the same time.
Only one I stuck to single process was capturing.
I was converting a large number of old tapes to DVD.
I have disabled updates on my work PC, IT IS STAYING WIN 7
My current home PC was built just before the release of 7 so of course was built with XP, it still runs well as I overspecced it when I built it.
Terabytes of HDD
lots of RAM (all XP can use)
It runs really well and it is old.
Why should I replace it when it works well?
Depends on the Discovery, the D1 is very similar to the original Range Rover and the 90/110, the D2 was the last new live axled design and I was surprised the axles did not end up on Defenders. (But the engine & manual gerabox did).
D2, D3 are very different, independant suspension, and a transmission unrelated to anything before.
The D1 and D2 are both about 100" WB so are between the 90 and 110 in size.
Slow - take the big lumps of metal out of the inlet maniold, instant power upgrade.
Slow & Bad Handling
Slow was sortable
Handling depends if you still need off road ability.
However the Discovery 2 managed it with careful use of hydraulics and electronics
Power steering - yes
Air con - yes
Coils - got them at front, air on rear
Kidneys - Good on long trips
Oil - fine once i replaced the front bung
It is good off road though!
The Freelander is now called Discovery Sport
Stupid isn't it.
I passed one on the M42, thought that was NOT a Discovery, now what I was in was definately.
That Ford engine is horrible, much prefer the LR designed TD5
The only leak I have from my Discovery is a slight power steering leak.
Engine is oil tight
Actually I don't like the more modern EU compliant engines, too much to go wrong.
Not against electronics as they can be reliable, but with the latest EU mode bringing in engine disabling for running out of pee, for EGR failure, various things which do not matter 1000s of miles from a dealer.
The Defender was best pre Transit engine, when it still had one of the the two Land Rover designed engine families in it. That being either the 2.5 direct injection based on series engine (300TDi) or the 5 pot lump to replace it (TD5).
With a Land Rover you want it to be repairable, you don't want to be stuck in Africa because the EGR failed. Even my 2003 100" estate can run fine with no EGR and only one working sensor if it had to.
Or they have reliable computers built with high spec components and are locked down.
XP works well on quad cores, it is so quick at MPEG encoding
Stukas - the target practice aircraft for the RAF. Good practice for the Spitfire and Hurricane pilots.
"I, for one, would like to see ejection seats in passenger cars."
Just do not go off when in a tunnel
Also used a similar idea for his heavy load lifter aircraft.
That's OK Golf can go.
Can drink Tea
Can drink Booze
Can't drink Golf
Me, 6 disc changer
It works, why change?
Would splitting BT and Openreach help Murdoch?
If so, do not split.
I do not see why everyone has to bow to walnut head.
You stand near someone smoking, then move away, now need to change clothes and wash hair.
Used to go out and when I got home shower and change to clean clothes for next day.
The Pendodildo is actually a lot less advanced than the APT, it uses transducers to tell it to tilt rather than the G forces, uses screw jacks rather than hydraulic rams.
Found out from a chap who worked on APT-E
Second hand smoke makes my clothes and hair smell
I just thought, sounds like bollocks and stick to my moderate drinking regime.
I ENJOY a quality bottle of cider or beer 6 or so nights a week.
Getting pissed is no fun (I _HATE_ hangovers). Being teetotal I reckon is bad for you
But that 70s and 80s developed stuff is so much better than the newer stuff.
The real mistake was abandoning APT before they had perfected it (it was nearly there).
Also importantly, will it be a problem for Rolls Royce?
Funny really, but the musicians I know, did it fot the love of music not the money.
Otherwise they would have been better off just doing their day jobs.
Anyway I am very unimpressed with record labels as the only deals they offered years agp were so bad that many bands stuck to self funded or touring only.
I dunno, may be if you buy it again he will come round and perform it for you.
He is supposed to be quite nice.
I am still using some of those formats!
Oh and when does Mini-DV get counted?
My PMP is a Hi-MD product, sounds good, works, why replace?
And I still have a lot of Beta kit. The only Vhs kit I have are used to keep my Sanyo M40 off the floor.
They released a CD, been copied everywhere, yet any blanks used for copying them will have their money assigned to some tosser I do not care about.
BTW I have legit copies as they are my friends
Home videos go through Mini DV quite a lot.
Then since I have HDV burning to BluRay
I also back up home PC to Blu Ray
Older stuff (Mini DV & Beta) to DVD
Last time I burnt anything copied was ripping a DVD so I could watch it (get past locked down adware & trailers)
But if they kill WIN32 there is then no reason to use their OSes.
Force a complete rewrite (there is a .NET escape plan if we HAD to).
Kill WIN32 then we would HAVE to go something more generic.
And it took us about 10 years to fully rewrite into WIN32 and still adding new code all the time.
I have to use Windows at work 7 64 bit currently as I write WIN32 software.
We will move away in a few years, but not sure what to.
To be honest Windows is safe until MS kill WIN32, then it may as well die.
But do we need Windows at home?
There is a choice between Linux and a version of BSD.
My gaming machine is an octo cored machine with yet another version of BSD, playing PC games for me is too much like work.
My home PC is XP as it works and I have better things to spend money on than replacing functional operating systems. It is dual boot so eventually will go Linux.
Sympathy strikes are actually nothing to do with the dispute. If someone wants to strike and has reason, let them, that is what industrial disputes are for, but to strike when not your dispute, bugger off and let someone else have the job.
They can change the name but why should we not continue using the old ones.
Still Eurodisney to me.
Compared to the rest of his party yes.
Still doesn't mean I would vote for them!
As I have had Rootes group vehicles, this does resonate a little, but Chrysler UK did go bump and Peugeot took over the remains. They did not have to keep the whole lot open, but the rot set in when they stopped making the Rootes designs (The Alpine and Horribleison were total rubbish compared to the Avengers and Sunbeams)
Sad but unexpected, but no worries, the modern Peugeots are not inspiring cars. Ssd for jobs and the rallying division, but going to French ownership whould screw things up.
No idea why this cut back as my last GM car had an engine from there depite the car being assembled in Germany. But I look at a modern GM car and think - where did it go wrong? Nothing about them to make me want to buy one.
UK steel is high quality but not cheap, other comapies buying steel go for cheapest.
British made steel is still used on the railways, by JLR.
My current car was made there
No it is because if he comes to the UK we now can all point and laugh at him!
I think BoJo had the right idea!
Group Of Pictures
Used in MPEG encoding
Can't stand that buffoon either. He is stands for everything I hate.
a) Unilateral disarmanent, b) Argentinian claims to British territory, c) no strike controls, d) anti private school just to name a few.
a) MAD worked and will keep fat little shit from launching one if he ever gets beyond launching washing machines
b) It is the islanders decision not that idiots
c) sympathy strikes, why should a company suffer strikes when there is no dispute?
d) The parents still pay for state schooling - ever heard of freedom of choice?
They have quite a few decent people in their party and they chose THAT! A couple of years ago Alan Johnson would have been a good choice, always comes over well on TV. Now their best choice is Hillary Benn.
Yes the far left socialists like Corbyn, but the rest of us, no bl00dy way.
Oh and don't get me started on Camerons replacement, but when Boris is BEST choice hmmmm.
In the words of other people
Buffoon, Wazzock, Repulsive, Dangerous Fool.
And the best way of dealing with it is ridicule.
Oh and which one is Trump?
Is it the furry thing or the blustering moron?
He makes Bush Junior seem like a very intelligent thoughtfull person.
Fart and wiggy are terrible
You know I use a few forums and do not block ads.
But the adverts pay for the forum and also are relevant.
Relevant enough for me to use them.
Are they relevent by tracking me?
No they are relevant as they are selling things related to the forums subjects.
Advertisers forced me to use adblocking.
Popups, animation, hover, all things I hate.
I used to not bother until advertisers decided to start the war.
Quite simply it is all their own fault we block them
The leaders of all worlds terrorist organisations are in one place.
How about showing us how good Brimstone is?
Should be able to get a Tornado there no trouble.
No no Obama won't mind, they don't have Brimstone and don't want too many killed by friendly fire.
Ever seen Razer?
Most successful crusher
Some of the family teams did very well
C5 messed the competition up by removing the "We will not total your robot" gentlemens agreement.
All the expensive and long build robots were retired as the losers did not fancy getting theirs written off.
Look how many times Razer broke down, when it worked it was unbeatable, but when it broke down.....
If it had been C5 it would have been wrecked in series 2 (I think).
I would love to see old favourites with upgrades, we never did get to see how powerful Wheely Big Cheese got as they were aiming to flip a house robot out of the ring.
Everyone has a LInux phone, so I expect big figures from them.
But then is has been wrappered by Google
