Re: Dual Sim
"24/May: Sim capability has changed to Dual Stand-by. That basically means that you cannot have two calls active at the same time in both of the SIM cards. Though when in stand-by you can get a call on any of the 2 numbers."
Online bidding - so...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: Have Offcom moved the goalposts
Vodafone are already doing it. They label it as "Extended Internet and email coverage" on their coverage maps.
GSMArena's phone finder returns 709 results when searching for UMTS 900 support.
863 million actual tins or the contents of 863 million tins arranged to make optimal use of the available space?
I need to know.
Re: American Broadcasting Corporation?
You're right, people don't take the time to comprehend things before they respond.
BTW I don't think Pen-y-gors was being serious. Take it easy Ace.

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.
Re: 70kg is being kind??
Don't worry, I'm under by enough for the rest of you to average 70.0000012kg
Happy to help.
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:
address for router
Why would they have done this?
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:

What do they call Android phones if they don't call them keitai?
Maybe things have changed a bit since I was there at the beginning of this year but most of the Android phones I noticed people using were Sony ones.

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?
Re: Have used...
"But have never brought from them. "
Have you ever bought from them though?
"a half-megabyte phone system"
What does that mean? Do you mean half-megabit with that being the codec's bit rate?
Good job Beeb
They really did well with the online video coverage - women's round of 32 archery? no problem, BMX seeding round? no problem. The bookmarks on the video player worked very well too.
I did find myself going round in circles a few times elsewhere in their Olympics site though.Sometimes it seemed like you could either find out who was competing or when an event was taking place but not both at the same time. At one point I tried to quickly find a table of the current standings in the hockey groups but couldn't manage it. Maybe I was just being crap though.
The live text pages were great though - just the right balance of information and entertainment.

I tried to learn Latin once but the online course I bought was almost useless.
Caveat emptor is all I can say.
Re: Useless numbers; pointless report
Does anyone have any figures on availability in Japan? I'm not doubting there's a drop-off outside the cities having seen some of the remote places where people live, but then again they do seem fairly prolific at throwing money at infrastructure projects even if only to keep the economy ticking over.
All I found from a quick bit of searching was an old article stating:
"Japan expects ubiquitous access for businesses and consumers to high-speed broadband by 2010 - the result of a four-year government programme designed to improve access. "
Have they managed it or are there still the kind of notspots we have in some places in the UK?
You must have missed the bit in the article which explained that the content of a spam message doesn't necessarily indicate the location of the computer used to send it.

Re: it's your job on the line...@handle
I've just logged in to Nationwide online banking with a code generated by a NatWest card reader.
When I transferred my ISA out of NatWest I decided to also close the current and savings accounts that I'd stopped using a few years ago.
I popped into my branch, told the chap behind the desk I wanted to close the account as I didn't need it any more and without any fuss he opened up his Intranet account management pages in IE6 and sorted it all out. I just needed to stick my card in the reader and enter my PIN a couple of times.
If it's all the same to you, I'm going to stay here in crazy BMI cuckoo world rather than joining the real world where I'd need to gain 2 stone to start being labelled as healthy.
