I can't remember the last time I saw an advert of FB. Doesn't ABP defeat all their advertising efforts?
I can remember playing this at university, 10 of us all crowded into a single room gathered round a CRT. Scared the living shits out of us. Never played anything like it since - truly a masterpiece, especially given the power of PCs back then.
Stuck with 8.1 for a full 18 hours and have now rolled back to Win 8 RTM (plus Start8 etc). 8.1 "update" introduced touch lag onthe screen, non MS apps weren't rendered correctly. unimpressed. still so much to do to make it a usable interface. Only using Win8 because the laptop has a touch screen. Oh well...... at least there is beer
All this ever seems to do.........

Energy vs Temperature
Is it only me that hates the continual references to temperature? Yes I understand that it's an easier concept to grasp but underneath it all less energy is being dumped from blue marble. This energy is likely to have unpredictable consequences as the system becomes more chaotic.
But I do like Lewis's scepticism!

Also the EIS for a lot of windfarms failed to take into account how high bats will actually fly - sounds silly but until the windfarms were put up experts believed they tended to stay lower than 100m - turns out that they are active up to at least 250m.
But there had never been a need to look at bat altitude until exploding bat syndrome was encountered.
Isn't this just a.....

Exchange is at the end of my garden. But I'm in a wiltshire vilage so I doubt the exchange will ever be upgraded as we are what OfCom lovingly call a Market 1 exchange..
...from a i7 920 to a 3770K and, for my purposes, it a great upgrade. Benchmark rendering in 3dsmax gave me a 388% performance increase. If you're upgrading from Sandy Bridge may it may not be worth it but if you skipped that then I'd recommend.
One thing I wasn't expecting was the power usage. I used to have an "intelligent" powerstrip that would switch off all the peripherals when my machine went to sleep. Now when the machine is idle it doesn't draw enough power to trigger the other sockets.......
We use the corporate version of Ghost for imaging and have never had any problems with it. I would never use a Norton branded bit of software. played with True Image and it was ok. Uninstalled it fine :)
My advice would be to have several different backup solutions, including NAS, Cloud and removable drives. Trusting a single solution can only cause pain later on.
If a legal firm tries issuing bill to clients for services that have not been provided i am pretty sure that they lose their license. Why are telecoms providers (and for that fact most utility companies) treated so differently?
Or is it just a question of getting as many of your mates appointed to the regulatory body as possible, thereby ensuring that profitability isn't affected and screw the actual customer.
Given how bad
Adobe's deployment tools are for Reader it's hardly surprising it's such a mess. I hate having to deploy new updates/versions because there is no reliable deployment mechanism across a corporate LAN.
