You don't think it was derided in the review of the ZTE Open (linked in the article)? You did take the time to read it, right?

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.

Re: Open up channel 14 on 2.4Ghz
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.

Where did you bring it?
If it was before 12/7/11 that you checked out Plusnet, you may want to take another look as Market 2 areas qualified as low-cost for residential accounts from then onwards.

Re: Why the...?
Or just Alt Gr
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.
SC2000 looked great but I seem to remember it being frustratingly slow on my A1200. And that was with 28MHz 68030 upgrade card.

Re: I'd look at the Battery Power Conditioning Circuits
Well, since you ask, it was the use of "battery's" that garnered my downvote.

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:

Why would they have done this?
Re: Note 2
"It lasts literally forever"
I doubt that.
Just call it USB 3.0 2.0 to avoid confusion.
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:
How do they do that?

Judging by my seemingly faultless reception of the main BBC multiplex now, I expect I'll finally be able to get all the other Freeview channels once they get the full beans on the Bilsdale transmitter.
I think I might treat myself to one of those new-fangled flat screen TVs. Yep, still rocking a CRT in 2012.
I don't watch much telly - because I'm missing out on all the best channels right? Anyone seen Jedward's Weird Wild World on 5*? Any good?
That is all.
