Re: I've still got my Dragon32
Never had a Dragon 32 but I did have another short-lived Welsh-made home micro, the MGT Sam Coupé. Still have that one in the loft in its original box. :)
You are fined one credit for a violation of the Verbal Morality Statute.
Re: @RobHib - It's not only remanence, remember the Ampex 456 scandal.
There's a good article on Wendy Carlos' site about this problem. Luckily she was able to rescue the master tapes for her Tron soundtrack. :D
Not too fussed about the BT Sports channels…
…but I'm so glad to have ESPN back. I was getting withdrawals after ESPN America closed down. Luckily I have an Apple TV and a subscription to MLB.tv but missed shows like Baseball Tonight.
Re: Go girl ......
I think you mis-typed the URL for the Daily Mail website.
They're going to notice another large drop now that they've fucked up getting BT Sports on cable.
Setting default apps
"> Any link in email or another app therefore opens in Safari, even when Chrome is present.
The Android approach is to present the user a choice every time a relevant link or file is tapped... ie, click a link, and asked which browser to use. Is there any way to set a 'default action' in Android?"
Either click the checkbox for "always use" or click the "always use" or "this time only" button, depending on how old a verzion of Android you're using. IIRC the latter method is valid for ICS and later.

Now that's a reality show I'd actually watch.

What does the 4th of January have to do with anything?
Re: RAM issue
Jelly Bean (in the form of CyanogenMod 10) runs quite nicely on my creaky old Galaxy S.
Re: Dear Tim Cook,
Anyone who's been using Apple kit for any length of time knows that you never buy any 1st gen Apple device anyway; you always wait for rev.2 kit.
Re: hope it's true
No need to queue overnight if Ebuyer send them out a week early again like they did with the N7.

Re: "Soon" ?
Flash may be back, but it’s not available for devices running Jelly Bean.

Didn’t have the balls to post under your username then?
Re: I'm beginning to like the BOFH solution
"We take representatives from Apple and Samsung, and while we're at it, representatives from the Patent office and other litigious patent holders. We lock them in a room with a half brick each and declare the last man standing as the winner…”
…and then engage the halon system.
Oh fuck off, Apple!

Yes, I've been playing with it (ooo-err!) for a couple of hours now. It's definitely an improvement over Honeycomb. The stock browser is much better and scrolls nicely without the annoying tiling that the HC browser does. The typing lag in the browser seems to be gone as well. Overall, it's a great update.
"although when my Virgin connection was down last week I couldn't even watch pre-recorded tv"
Actually you can. Rather than pressing "OK on a programme in your recordings (which, as you've found, doesn't work as it can't bring up the info page to play the programme) just highlight the programme and press "Play" and it'll play just fine.
Difference in running time
Probably due to the BD versions being 24fps and the PAL DVDs being 25fps.
That is all.
Re: Kindle Feedback

Meant to add a second link. This is the thread where the cause of the problem was identified, with pics to show what's happening. See page 8 onwards for pics.
SD picture problems
Going from the posts on the VM forums it seems that the SD upscaling problems are due to TiVo assuming that PAL SD broadcasts are interlaced in the same order as NTSC ones, so the line order is swapped. VM have stated that they're waiting for a firmware update to fix the issue.
