Re: Print article

'we still support print article'. You're suggesting that being able to print loads of pages of crap layout and adverts is comparable to a proper readable and printable view?

It was bad enough in the last redesign when the 'print' button at the top of the article got replaced by a twee icon somewhere down the left of the page. And now there's nothing. The only progress I can see is for advertisers, not readers. And without readers....

Some of us have a shit work network. Articles were readable by lining them up in printable view. The first might have finished loading by the time the last was queued up. But no more. It seems that I can spend ages scrolling around clicking next, next, next. Or move on. Not as if there's Lester to make us laugh, except for a few recipes.

Setanta, ESPN couldn't make UK footie TV work. How will BT Sport?

and motogp

Couldn't care less about football (except to hope BT lose lots of money on it). But now the B**T**** have got MotoGP too. Guess that leaves BBC with nothing. I don't care for crappy streams, I want to timeshift and fast forward and rewind just like I've been doing for years. Backward step to lose, lose all round. Yes, I'm a Luddite

Where's the ANT+ ? All the bike HRM, speed, cadence sensors use it.

Re: and the print option?

"It's still there! Under the comments button and above the Twitter/Facebook likes"

Blimey, so there is. Thanks! Wouldn't have found it in a million years.

So long as there's a print button there can be as many (or few!) pages as you like!

and the print option?

There used to be a 'print' button to make it more 'work friendly' and save having to do the next page, next page thing every few paragraphs.

Not worth fighting through all the non article bits to read anything in hardware now and looks like the other sections are going the same way.

Humax HDR-Fox T2 Freeview HD DVR

FAIL

never again

Having the misfortune to have a Humax 9300 thingy, I'll never own any more of their kit. Ever. Unreliable pos - whole programs it doesn't bother to record, starts or ends missed (yeah, could be broadcasters fault but I don't care anymore), freezes (and yes firmware is up to date). Oh yes, the nice way it wipes your entire recording schedule without even a warning if you rescan the channels. And more.
