Musicians should get another job that pays
Poor old musicians complaining they get no money, Music labels with a business plan from the beginning of last century.
People who make music should now just accept that they will never earn a living from recording music in this digital age and find a job that does. Does that mean music will die? like the IFPI thinks. No it just means that people who have a passion for music will continue to make music, but only for love. (or maybe a pint if they are lucky)
In any case why do we need record labels now anyway? aren't they completely redundant?
How funny would have it been if there was a crudely drawn knob underneath.
I still play DOOM
Albeit GLDOOM @1024x768 with mouse look, it is incredibly fast and playable and wait for it....it even works under Vista. I tend to pick a random level and try and complete it from scratch, otherwise it is too easy as you carry over the weapons and ammo from previous levels.
Didn't their namesake once have a problem shifting some doggy calculators with no equal sign?
Hope they FAIL
They move their manufacturing operation to China, a market that plays by different rules to the West but they Don't like it when the consumer does a similar thing by exploiting different markets.
BTW top comment by Charlie Clark.

XP used to run just fine with 256MB RAM, now 512MB is barely enough. I do wonder sometimes if the updates MS releases slow your machine to a crawl to make you go out and buy a new one. although some of the blame for this is the bloated "Internet security" suites that in my view are unnecessary for most users behind a decent router.
if you think about it there are a number of things that make this planet "just right" to have life emerge on it, like the large amount of Iron which as well acting as a shield against rays, helped the ocean release oxygen into the atmosphere. And the unusually large moon acted a giant mixing spoon in the primordial soup.
But that's why we live here on Earth and not on Gamma Hydra 12,400 light years away.
Another thing about Guy Fawkes
I bet there is more CO2 released (and who knows what else) on November 5th than any other day in the year, with all these thousands of bonfires.
I say BAN that first.
it is such a strange thing to celebrate anyway.
Maybe not just Ubuntu
Since I installed 1 of the performance & compatibilty patches on my Wndows Vista a similar thing has been happening with my second hard drive (spinning up and down) I will now have a play with my bios settings and see if it goes away.
He could have taken a screen shot from a windows XP desktop and used is as his wallpaper in linux, the tw**s at PC World probably wouldn't have noticed the difference.
Works must die
What is the point of works, the file formats cannot even be opened by MS Office. So later on when you are rich enough to buy a copy of Office 2007 you will have do all your work again.
Don't be so hard on them
I sent this clip to a friend of mine in the police and he said that on the advanced driving course they are told to hit the water fast and hard and then drive in wake of the resulting wave, however it is difficult to time it right as this driver proved. Still funny though.
I have had this bug working with files and folders on local drives a well a networked, it happens randomly I’m beginning to think Vista is haunted. I have noticed that empty folders and files that register as “0 bytes” seem to really confuse it.
