"Did Edison just go, hmm bit of wire, bit of electric, hey presto light? No he spent a long time trying out different methods."
Actually no he didn't do that either. He nicked the idea from Joseph Swan.......
The only thumb drive that I have _ever_ had fail was a LaCie :(
Re: Out that whole lot..
Ooooooooh Vectrex. I had one of those - it was great. So called because of it's vector graphics. I got it in a Woolco closing down sale with a shedload of games, played it for years, kept it in the attic for longer, then sold it on ebay for a huge profit. Still a cult machine, I understand.
I've got the self same netbook with W7 on it and it runs fine.
Didn't they do this on Top Gear?
Re: Hm, you can make your own changes
Typing this on a Maltron - with the proper Maltron key layout too. Great keyboard.
My dream telly is a reasonable sized screen, good picture, good sound and a shedload of connectors. Not even interested in internal tuners.
Doesn't sound hard, does it?

Re: the punishment
The book mentioned that an incident of cannibalism had occurred in the past. It did not dwell on it.
And it's not wholly a book about the fighting, it's a book about the lengths that those in authority will go to to control a population and (ultimately) about the resisting of that authority.
Read the book if you want to cite it, don't rely on second hand reports from the internet.
And .............. still being told the same today.
These systems would be telling people to call back later, then - which is what I was told.
I only go to London once or twice a year and I have an Oyster card. Get one. You'll not regret it.
Try to read one of your Kindle books on your Sony. Then come back and tell me how much easier it is.
Nowt wrong with DAB
I have 3 DAB radios, 2 in the house and one in the car.
The reception's fine on all 3 in rural Scotland. The only drop out that I have experienced is on the M8 in Cumbria where I can't get FM either.
One radio's on its first set of batteries and the other is on its second.
The only criticism that I have is that the bit rate is too low.
My Samsung Solid Extreme
... which looks exactly like this has been through the washing machine cycle a few times to no ill effects. It's a tough little bugger.
That's right - Comet was the place to buy when I was a teenager. It was cheaper by far than anywhere else. It's lost its way now ............
I thought that the concensus on who wrote Venus on the Half Shell was Philip José Farmer?
Am I the only one that remembers branches of 'Knobs and Knockers' all over the country that sold brass door furniture?
