Console multiplayer gaming
I think a lot of it has to do with the advent of decent console multiplayer capability. Coupled with the fact that a high end graphics card alone costs the same as an entire PS3 (and you'll probably spend the same again in 2-3 years when it can suddenly only run Sim Tower), people are taking the logical choice and going console. Especially as most of the big new games are multi platform (COD4).
I for one welcome the change. No more pissing around with graphics/sound/chipset drivers, installing, patches, x-fire, teamspeak, punkbuster, multiple accounts, buying new hardware, patching XP/Vista... then start again when the whole lot needs reinstalling when you get a new board, OS upgrade or a fucking virus.
If anyone has the overwhelming desire to know exactly where this reservoir is (like me), have a butchers here:
The cheek of it.
My other half thought I was a bit weird for shouting 'CHEEKY BASTARDS' at a kids toys on TV... that took some explaining.
Re: where is the link to the ...
Blimey, rick roll'd 2004 style!!
Calm down dear!
It's a commercial!
You bastards! That wasn't a redesign you did a few days ago... you just redirected to thesun.co.uk!!
@Amanda: Nope, that's the suspension strut. They're very visible on all of the 2nd gen minis.
1.44 hours a week, otherwise known as 17.28 lonely single BT engineer hand shandies (at 5 minutes a piece). I think it's time The Reg online standards convertor was updated to include time..
(I accept no liability for any dodgy half arsed incorrect maths that may have occured in this comment).
I do hope..
The tourist took full advantage of the situation and asked for something to take away the venom, but keep the swelling?
Well mine certainly used to freeze up before the patch - disabling the internet connection got it going again prior to the patch coming out. Since then it's been perfectly behaved.
Who cares what the public thinks of it -it's got everyone talking about it. At least they're getting away from 'James Bond: Pussy McHairy'-esque titles as well.

It was something to the tune of "MAKE SOME MOTHER F#*!£&G NOISE!"
..And the daily mail readers did, it seems.
It's like bloody ISPs offering 'unlimited broadband' as long as it's under 15gb!!
It's not exactly had to be done before, pretty ingenious as it's going to be constructed next to the plant then slowly wheeled over the top of the 1986 mess. Plus it's designed so that the plant can be deconstructed from within it, and will contain its contents if the current carcass were to collapse.
Considering that there's not much between the 95% of radioactive crap that's still sitting in the current carcass and our atmosphere, I'll be glad when Chernobyl Arch is in place.
Just checked the electoral roll, and I am amazed to find that nobody has been named Robin Reliant! What is the world coming to.
"mass debate on central database"
Is that like a tech version of 'soggy biscuit' - replacing the biscuits with hard drive platters?
"We'll send an engineer"
What the blimey will an Engineer do?! It sounds like the line is working TOO well!!
Outstanding gullibility as performed by commenters of this thread! Maybe The Reg need to introduce a 'tongue in cheek' gauge for the 'simpler' breed of readers..
That has got to be bootnote of the year. Brilliant.
RE: Getting high...
As this characters name doesn't seem to want to go away, and he's not entirely sure who 'Rufus' actually is.. I recommend we start a Rufus of The Week (RoTW) as I get the feeling this may go on for a while!!
That'd be a brilliant April Fools if you bought one for a woman you don't like, and tell her it's a pair of ultra portable hair straighteners....
RE: Streaming from buses?
Have you never watched Speed? Sheesh...
100ml liquid restriction..
How the hell did she get that amount of curry past security checks?! - It could have been filled with an explosive substance..
Saying that, I regularly create dirty bombs after eating micro-curry.
Hint for thieves...
Focus on the road.
I'll get my coat.
