Where as I do agree with you BigBadAl, I actually moved from ZEN to BE on the basis of faster up/dwn speeds (Prior to ZEN going 20Mbps). They also had a nasty limit which, being a media designer pushing and pulling vast amounts of content from our servers I used to hit the limits every month. BE sorted that, and was half the price.
So yes, ZEN is superb, but for moderate users with a healthy wallet :-)
For those still using the detestable Thomson router: Bin it and get something else, FTLOG! First thing I did really, after asking the cs chaps to give me the details. All to happy to oblige, and now have a sparkling Draytek instead.
...which dimwit voted AGAINST this fact? - "The Civil List"
ok.. this smacks of "playgroundism" (TM) as some dimwit voted against Pete's post.
It's fact, and a fact that many Ney-Sayers always stand dumbfounded at when confronted with these facts.
Nice one Pete, a pint is on it's way to you! :-)
i thought it had partly been shaped by seas, but the current surface geology was by sandstorms, no?
.. now I'm thinking of trawling through Spirit and Opportunity's archives! Bliss!
..nah.. not for me..
Gimme the gimmicky laser keyboard that I had a go at all those years ago. Just wish the production ones were as good (or are they? Havent' tried one since their public launch..)
Hmm. I think I'll wait for
Mine's the one with "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"
Last Ditch Attempt?
RAT arm to coerse the "little" fella down the hill again? Of course, I do not know what the load bearing potential is, and it could quite easily render the arm useless, but there are other things Spirit could do without the arm. Dragging that wheel won't help matters for sure..
Just a thought (which no doubt a person in the know will hopefully set me right)
Thank you Spirit - your info and pictures so far have been awe-inspiring. One of my faves is definitely the Mars Sunset. Just beautiful.
Good Afternoon Reading
Absolutely fascinating to read all about the LHC and these comments.
Someone owes me a new keyboard tho.. but I'm sure some of these accounts are duplicate..
Hmm.. who to send the bill to...
Plain and simple.
"My god, it's full of stars..."
... great ...
So all the shower and bathroom glossys that you can get from Jewsons when you were a kid would be banned?
I truly weep for the younger generation that will be brought up in an archaic prudish Britain. more laughing from our relaxed neighbours across the pond and channel..
..not a pdf link, but..
...pdf link has gone down
Shame really as I would have liked to have a nosey at it..
It was here:
But now it's gone. Probably served with a Take Down notice.. hurrumpff!
Anyone else seen it linked?
" than blow £20 on a single BR"
20 quid?? Shop around m'son! £20 is almost double the amount for most BR! Granted, if you want the latest releases, you'll pay 17 quid for a double disker, but 2 months later it's cheaper.
"Shop-shop-shop--shop--shop--shop--shop. Tree-tree-tree-tree-tree-tree-tree. Ahhhh.. Baby Jeeesus..."
Adult games are bad for kids...
So don't allow the kids to buy them. Let Adults buy them instead..
This report is shocking!!
"Suck on this!"
This is a pisstake..
It's not him being serious.. I would have thought the Pi55TakeFilms banner would have been noted..
You have all failed. Goodbye
Whole-heartidly agree with you!
Never burn your bridges, and never wash the ex's linen in public; no matter how sorely you feel.
It's just the professional way..
It's early, but i'll drink to that sentiment anyway
Firstly, then secondly
1st : "The scheme is somewhat reminiscent of the idea, sometimes suggested for US police, of automatic gun cameras intended to record the target of every shot fired for use in subsequent investigations."
So in other words a bit like "KillCam".. Gruesome. I prefer this Blackbox idea.
2nd : I like this, although it really wouldn't work for the home market, as it could quite easily be tampered with. For Law Enforcement and the Army would most proabably benefit.
..for the cost of a few full priced games, you are back in business.. until they do something else.
Kudos for the guys who found out a way - that's dedication for you
But surely, if you have a donner console that then wouldn't be able to play online afterwards, why not just use the donner console for the online games, and the hacked console for whatever.. [Yes, I'm guessing I'm missing a point quite big here.]
Meh, I'll stick to buying the games and supporting the good game developers that are welcome to my money in exchange for my enjoyment.
Surely, the poor saps who are going for this should be given it free of charge at least?!
Paying for the privilege is just bloody mindedness by The Gov! They are risking their identities for this!
Rest easy, Sir :-(
Curious that they are not releasing the info on the contents..
Another Black Ops Project, including Balck Ops Equipment, from the Black Ops Agencies of the UK... Probably utilising Dark Fibre (had to get that in..! Sounds good 'dunnit'?)
I'll be very intrigued to know what the kit was.. They usually divulge the inventory. hang on.. was it computer consignments... or something more sinister..?
Black Ops Helicopter obviously...
Good news to a point..
..but water generally has organisms on it. Where as this could be good news, it could also mean bad. Yes, Dr. W-who was on last night ("Waters of Mars"), but thinking of it rationally, I'm not talking about Alien Posessions et al. I'm more concerned with further organisms that might contaminate our already contaminated water supply here on Earth.
I say we set up Moon Base Alpha and do tests on it. I vote for being Tony Verdeschi (RIP)
@Super & @Richard L
@Super - you don't need GbE for 1080p. My systems can cope over homeplug with no issues.. granted, depending on your resolution. (That was my foot I just shot)
@Richard L - This was designed and set gold prior to the N Standard being (FINALLY!!!!) agreed. But the the reality is that even with the new final standard thoeretically providing 600Mb/s, it actually only comes close to 100Mb/s. Unless of course you have line of site, or it's situated virtually 10 feet away through a wall. It would also depend on your wifi router, as I'm sure someone will pick me up on these (in my real life) figures. But I think you were more pointing to the fact that it lacked wifi purely for connectivity, right? If that's the case, you could always add a Game-Port wifi conenction like Netgear do (Had one for my PS2) - that would work.. but then you have the issue of bandwidth
Nice little box though, especially for the money and quiet running
I have one thing to say:
"Bloody noisy fan, and no decent replacement!"
That is all :o)
@Inachu & @Colin
@Inachi - Agreed, indeed! A good point, although a legal type will no doubt say otherwise.
@Colin - A v.good idea, but I guess that means that they would need to pay peeps to have that understanding :o)
Come in from the Consumer Ice-Age my friend, and welcome to the mirth of the consumer wants>!
Crapola! You are right! Wasn't it digital media??
That's a sexy little thing..
.. and the phone ain't bad neither!
Seriously though, if this looks, acts and works as shown - *dribble*
My one question would be what would the sync software be like as usualy SE software is just shite.
Else, I'll just stick with my 3G
Finally - A sane Exec
"However, he stressed that the launch of such a service is just “one option for the future”, adding that he thinks it will “take a long time” before the industry in general moves to digital downloads."
Finally, someone that isn't shy to state a realistic view. Bistari Bistari :o)
Proceed with this nonsense at flank speed
..I think you are missing my point, but it must be me not explaining my point very well.
Sarcasm aside (I'm looking at you @AC 10:55, you coward), favourites would work on the return visit, but searching would be a bit difficult when the address is www.英國臺灣同.ch.
Might be wrong about this but..
... what if there is a website in China that I need to get to, but it's in Big5? Does that mean I will need to map a layout, or get an onscreen package to key in the characters?
Might be enriching for the non-latin countries, and I'm not against it. Just wondering is all.
Why not move all the older Harriers to the empty carrier instead. Yeah, so you get a lengthy period of ROI on them, but if you re-used them then we would have two carriers?
I might be completely missing the point, but with an IT head on, it called: "Re-utilising of old assets to save money".
(I probably am missing the point, but it's an honest suggested solution)
Black Helicopters, because i like 'em ;o)
May I be the first to say that..
.. this is akin to being up shit creek without a rectum..
Mine's the one with the Plastic Fantastic in the pocket..
@Rob Davis & @Citizen Kaned
Completely agree with the pair of you.
......A title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
Mine's the one with "Transit Van Conversions for Criminals" in the pocket..
Good - sure, it's not powerful, but it's a cheap for what it is.
I still have a few issues with the durablity of MSI (others may have a different view), but still it looks a decent package for a second PC in the kitchen.
Really? Even though it's classed as a Notebook?
@D@v3: Netbook? I thought this was a Notebook? Still, agreed it is expensive..
I don't know about most, but I actually prefer the feel of a sturdy weighted laptop. Doesn't blow away when you are in the park, or slide off the desk on a train.. Sure it'll be fit for someone
"Sony: Abysmal reliability and service"
Gah, I would speak to your account manager, or get a new one. 3 years of blissful transistion from Hp to Sony. Just like Dell to HP servers.
Agree with the chap RE: it being a TZ - Yup, looks like it is
(Still thinking it's expensive, but looks good)
"the only way to get any media into the player is to burn it onto CD first"
Philips being Philips, I would expect that you would have to have a certain folder structure on the USB drive/key before it would recognise the files on it.
Can't say for certain, but I'm sure it will be like my Philips player from way back.
Did you try it?
"meh" from a PS3 fan
Looks shit. I would have prefered something a bit more .. envolved; like donning a pair of gloves that enable intricate actions in game (as a small example).. To me, the "Wand" looks like some sort of bad SciFi prop from the 70's = Bad.
When can we get something along the lines of "Better Than Life"?
That's some garage sale he's found there, where you can buy $4k licences over a few visits for peanuts..
Hmmm... Sounds like an inside job to me..!
Fallen Comrade & @ChrisC
Nice touch by MS re: the etching on the back (if indeed it was for their fallen comrade).
@ChrisC "How many more Apple fans will have commented by the time this shows up... "
Not many ;o)
Drink, because I could really do with a drink right now...
"using the sticky white fluid "
Hehe! Sorry, just had to.. I know you angled for "Fnars" when you wrote that!
Friday, and mine's a pint of the black stuff served by a Lady in black latex
not liking the idea that I would have to BUY the games I have again. Would prefer to get them off tape (...erm...) and then synch them to the iPhone accordingly..
...actually, hang about... nah, forget it. Sounds like there's too much development envolved.. especially as it's a bit of fun. Time to dust off the C64 from the loft!
So, yeah, nice :o)
"Mine's the long, brown trench-coat.." - BSTL
"BAM said the Lady!" :o)
So rap artistes?
What about all the music artistes that defame others?
Take Eminem for instance...
Curious is all, not bothered.
... oh.. God!
"We have no doubt Reg readers will await the result of Bengtsson's child-rearing initiative with keen interest. "
No we won't!!
Bad bad BAD El Reg!!
Beer, quick, before the memory receptors start to get going...
@Wayland Sothcott 1
"I have an Atari 2600 console, the one with the wood effect plastic that was very american 1970's. That still works. From 1978."
Oh HELL yeah! Now they are built to last - even the games are.. remember the landfill site somewhere in Texas??
Still got the Vic20, Atari 2600, Speccy 48k rubbered keys, and ZX81..
but the ZX81 is very tempermental so I won't in clude that in the "Bombproof" category.. considering one such occasion I sneezed in the direction of the '81 and hours of coding vapourised in a colourful hex dump on screen... "why.. WHY?!" *head-smack*
*Smacks head with palm* ...You've got to be kidding me...!!
*sides split, entrails fall to ground*
Oh boy.. please *wipes tears from eyes* ..someone please stop him...
Mine's the one with the American History school text book in the pocket..
no No NO!

...thanks.. that will haunt me now for quite sometime...
