... but isn't this just a way for 1st world countries to wash their hands of the recycling issue? 3 years down the line and the responsibility for the recycling has been passed on to the 3rd world countries.

1953: How Quatermass switched Britons from TV royalty to TV sci-fi

mamsey
Happy

Re: Brilliant!

"The Quatermass Experiment", "Quatermass II " and "Quatermass and the Pit " all good early sci-fi, but the one I'm still waiting to see is "Quatermass and the Goon Show", should be excellent.

Is there really an 'alcohol ban' or is it it because the 'bar is quite high' and folks can't reach?

Well attended courses?

"The average number of staff on each course was 851 for e-learning, against 81 for manual based and 104 for face-to-face."

104 people on a face-to-face course? Not really a course, more a lecture, I can't see anyone learning a lot in a class of 104 people...

WD Passport failure...

Just had to return a 1TB WD Passport as it failed. I managed to get back the majority of the content on the but it fails all the WD tests (software included on the drive, luckily I'd backed that up).

It's interesting to note that the drive within the enclosure is directly wired to the usb hardware and is does not have a standard sata style drive.

Amazon Kindle Lighted Leather Cover

mamsey

Well I like it...

If you ignore the price the one I have is a decent bit of kit, I bought a Tan coloured one when my missus bought me a Kindle for Xmas.

The light is good especially if your eyesight isn't quite as good as it used to be, and I find the fact that the light has the colour temperature of whitish LEDs rather than a tungsten bulb helps as well.

If you're feeling flush I'd say buy one.
