Really, I don't think I've seen you in the virtual barber's shop. Something for the weekend sir <cough>?

Re: FTTH is a waste of time

We have a cabinet at the bottom of out road, unfortunately the pair for our house is served from a much more distant cabinet. I get 14Mb/s down and 3Mb/s up from FTTC, which is still much more than I used to get with ADSL and two connections aggregated. I'd consider FTTP if it reduced the latency significantly.

Re: Original uses for the accelerometer

I smell a patent there - quick get your application in. I call the invention of waving around the phone over the bonk point the more vigorous the movement the more the tip - or perhaps that should be reversed; a vigorous forward and back motion with the phone in a semi open palm (with fingers curled) means the staff get no tip.

Game CEO steps down

Chris Hill 1

Southampton has/had three Games and a Gamestation in the centre of town within a very short walk. I wonder which if any they will chose to keep: the one in the prime retail location (high rent shopping centre), the one on the high street, the one on the side street off one end of the high street or the one in the oh so 80s shopping centre that has more tumble weed than punters.

If there is no tax liability in India but a capital gain has been made where does the liability fall? Perhaps the UN should start collecting extra territorial tax revenue and use it to make up the shortfall from the donor nations.

It will be nice to be able to see that your tag has just been read. When will they harvest enough power to drive the optional klaxon and flashing lights?

Forget the Baals

The descendants of Hr Wanker aren't afraid of puerile comments. https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Wankers_Corner,_Oregon I think he set up the original country store as a newly arrived settler having reached the end of the Oregon trail.

Our dogs have facebook pages (farmville for friends). Apparently they've found lots of friends using the friend finder. I don't think so, as I've never seen them sat at the computer pawing over facebook.
