Give 'em a break
It was hardly a formal occasion.
There are plenty of cures for Maleria, and there has been for decades. Doxycycline would be my preference.

Yes. KCOM (Kingston Communications) are rolling out fibre to the door by default across their network. It's happening where I live right now. And if you want to pay them for it they'll gaurantee 100 Mbps (not 'up to'). Of course we don't have much choice of provider round here.
In fact I prefer a stack of my Application folder to Launchpad - it provides a much better interface. One that has more than a little in common with the Windows Start menu!

Birmingham doesn't have direct flights to London as far as I can see. But why on Earth would it? There are 8 trains an hour between Birmingham and London with the quicket (Virgin - every 20 minutes) taking about 1 hour 25 minutes and stop at Birmingham airport on the way. You're in London before you'd have even taken off.
I'd suggest the situation for Cork should be similar, but isn't.

Don't like the Ribbon UI...
...in Office 2011? Turn it off then!
The option is there.
As I recall they do have an Acorn Atom, but it's not on display.
OTOH The National Museum of Computer at Bletchley Park here in the UK has a whole 'classroom' exhibit full of working BBCs, including a Domesday project machine.
TfL Fare zones?
Now I like *that* as a unit of measurement.
was not invented - it was discovered.
At Marylebone, where this has been trialed, they fitted the ticket gates with barcode scanners that you just hold your mobile phone's screen over (in addition to the mag-strip slot and Oyster card reader). Worked fine when I used it.
It is supporting the standard: HTML5. And HTML doesn't define a standard video codec.
That's the first time in my life I've ever said anything to defend Microsoft. I feel dirty.
