Noddy is a Legend

He should have a statue on the fourth plinth of Trafalger Sq.

A Richard Madley icon for the reporter

As pointed out by many others, this survey shows that women are four times as clever. Can we have a Richard Madley or Peter Andre icon to complement the Paris Hilton icon?

Wicker Man sequel goes up in smoke

It should be made

The Nicolas Cage version was dreadful and although the planned official sequal would not be a patch on the original, I believe it would have been a worthwhile film to make and would donate a small amount to have it made.

21st century travel: building your own warp drive

A bit premature to run this out this century

Flight by machines heavier than air is unpractical and insignificant, if not utterly impossible.

787 unsafe, claims former Boeing engineer

Airfix

It is more than suspicious that Boeing announce a plastic plane shortly after Airfix stop manufacture. If anyone sees a giant tube of UHU in the Seatle area then this whistleblower's report is only the tip of the iceberg.

Go visit

I visited Bletchley Park recently and urge all you geeks to go visit.

Tony Sale, give the guy a knighthood, was there to explain the Colossus.

It is in full operatation ticking and humming like a real computer.

Cyberstalker to spend six months in jail

Lock up the Real Criminals

Remember the old addage sticks and stones.

No threat was made (as far as I am aware) so this case should have thrown out.

Instead real yobs are being thrown out of jail early to make space for her.

Give her a large fine then she cannot afford to go online.

Bletchley Park the Mecca for the IT industry

Anyone involved with IT and even those who are not should pay a pilgramage to Bletchley Park. The work of Alan Turing, Tommy Flowers and the rest of the experts should be celebrated more regularly as these people were heros. At Blecthley Park the first Electronic programmable computer was built. A recreation of it has been built there now, which is an awe inspiring sight.
