I haven't paid my line rental to BT for many years. I almost never use my landline so most months I 'foolishly' allow New Call Telecom to 'raid' my bank account for £10.09. A year ago, I see from my online banking it was only £8.89. Funny they didn't mention wholesale prices are going down when they put the price up...

I see that's one feature carried over from the original model. To be fair they did fix it when mine went in for a service and it's been fine since. Next time it goes in I'll have to ask them if the loose bit on the inside door handle can be secured...
Still, I've been very happy with my original Aygo. The economy is good and the performance is fine for what I need. I prefer the looks over this new one too.

Back pocket is typically how I carry my phone around at work. Since chairs are more often than not situated next to desks and other such level surfaces, I always remove it before sitting down. Seems the obvious thing to to with something not designed to bend and uncomfortable to sit on.
Re: What's an "OEM version" in this picture?
You're right - you'd have to be extremely handy with a soldering iron to make use of one of these on its own.
I read elsewhere that the actual difference between the 5Y10 and 5Y10a is that one can be configured for an even lower TDP if required.
If configured for the same TDP they'll perform identically.

Re: Tray-loading optical drive?
When faced with a similar problem recently I did a quick bit of Googling and found that holding the option key at startup brings up a screen allowing you to select the startup volume. The eject key works from there.
I'm going to celebrate these additions by donning my jorts in a bit of double denim.

Unless it was properly opened up by the regulators you'd be limited to 802.11b on channel 14 assuming your kit correctly complies with the current standards.

Re: Why the...?

If I remember correctly (and I may well not be) from my days playing this on my Amiga, you seemed to be able to ramp up the tax rate just before the annual collection date, collect a whole year's worth of top-whack taxes then drop the rate back down so that the negative influence of the high taxes didn't linger.

I don't know if it's a historical thing due to being with PlusNet née Force9 for years and years but in the member centre I'm seeing 4 public IPv4 addresses for my account. They're described as:

Re: I call bollocks on this
I was sceptical about this when I heard it on R4 and I'm surprised to hear that one reference recording could cover the entire grid.
As far as accuracy of the recording frequency is concerned though, I assume they look for patterns in the relative change of the recorded hum as it drifts up and down over the course of the recording rather than matching to the reference hum's frequency exactly. So long as the recording's sample rate was consistent they could compensate for it being out a bit?
Try searching this article for Birmingham instead:
