Once India gets their ID cards up and running, Uk.Gov can offshore ours to them.
Any company that does business in the UK should have UK Call Centres and employ people that can understand and speak English properly.
1. More jobs for the UK
2. A happier customer. Talking to someone that can actual speak and understand English.
3. More tax revenue for the Government.
I think the Government should impliment an Offshore Tax against companies that offshore UK jobs to India. They are losing taxes because of this and we need these taxes to fill in the massive debt GB and NuLabour has put us in.
Does these mean there will be less Chinese Gold Farmers on WoW?
There is already guidelines
[she said: "There's a lot of guidelines protecting children from photos being taken on cameras in schools, nurseries and swimming pools, but none to say staff can't take camera phones to work."]
If there are already guidelines about cameras, doesn't cameras on mobile phones also fall under this rule?
You don't need ID cards.
All you need is RFID sub-dermal implants and a network of sensors to track your every movement.
Just tell the astronauts it's bling for the window and launch the shuttle.
Kayak's claim is EPIC FAIL!
It's about time they offered their products at the correct price instead of this ripoff 1 to 1 rubbish...

Ah... Worms... excellent game and if you're from Yorkshire you know the meaning of some of the stuff in the game...

Now where did I put that Concrete Donkey...
Why are Microsoft creating Antivirus and firewall software for Windows? Shouldn't they just fix it?
Isnt it time we moved into solid state media than using things that spin around?
Most ISP don't allow you to run a web server (or any other server) from your home computer since the bandwidth will affect their networks.
AFAIK ISP's also do port scans to make sure you are not running a web server.
Put it this way...
...I won't be choosing Opera as my browser of choice.

"... How do you download an alternative web browser?
Does windows ship with an ftp client"
Open a Command Prompt and type FTP. There is no clicky pointy stuff. All manual typing.
Here is a question?
How many computers/servers in the EC offices run some version of Windows?
How many of these computers/servers running Windows have alternative browsers installed?
What would happen if Microsoft decided to say "Windows is no longer available to buy in the European Union. People from the EU must now buy Windows direct from Redmond"?
Are they sure...
...IE is removed and not just hidden?
Isn't the rendering engine part of the OS used by the desktop?
@AC: I've got an idea.
"All the governments of the world put £5 into a kitty each year.
The save the world fund.
In a billion years we can just buy whatever's needed to deflect "
Won't that be just enough money to get us out of the global recession?
Why are people so obsessed by BNP getting 2 seats? The BNP is seen as a protest vote.
After all we live in a society where we are free to vote who we want.
If the other 70% couldnt be bothered to vote then they have no say after the result.
Best thing they can do is to vote next time round to make sure they don't get in again.
What the main political parties need to do is listen to the voters and keep their manifesto promises, like a vote on the EU Treaty which Labour didn't give.
Come the next General Election we will get the same bull about Crime, Education, NHS and Immigration. And most likely nothing will be done, again...
The computers from Amstrad were
CPC464 (Colour or Green monitor) with built in Tape Drive, 64k memory
CPC664 as above but with built in disk drive instead of tape
CPC6128 same as CPC664 but with 128k memory
PCW were the business versions
Bought out Sinclair Spectrum and rereleased it.
Also allowing Spectrum emulator writers to use the ROMS for free.
Uk.gov should do the same... Any British company that has offshored jobs should pay some sort of Offshore Tax. Especially call centres. Hate ringing them up.
British workers were laid off because of greedy corporations offshoring jobs to increase their profit should be made to pay for the lost revenue in tax that UK.gov would have got from them if the jobs were still being done by British workers.
And her form looks good.
Will there be enough money in the budget to actually base the story somewhere other than London/Cardiff ??
Time to watch...
Team America again...
...Phorm test was it on Business users this time?
Why are we still bothering...
...with spinning media?
Shouldn't everything now be solid state?
A new definition of...
...going out on the piss.
They will need to develop gravity plating to put in this orbital shipyard so people aren't floating about in offices, living quarters, bathroom, etc...
