Great Britain is Scotland, England and Wales, you are thinking of the UK which does include Northern Ireland, I'm sure the Irish ( You said Ireland) would be surprised to hear they are part of either.
Thanks, was getting worried there, at least someone had the usual Linux comment, now all we need is some distant link to a PS3 or 360 to get the Fanbois on
I'm genuinely surprised some wag (original meaning, not a stupid EFA players wife) hasn't said the now annoying phrase. "ah but can it run Vista/Crysis"
With me having a 360, Wii and borrowing a friends PS3 for a week I am far more impressed with the 360 as an all round package, I will be buying a PS3 soon but more to do with getting a cheap BR player than for gaming.
Actually you'll find BT has the strongest national network with the largest capacity, far higher than VM could dream of. It also uses fibre, just not FTTP or FTTK, yet.
Well I don't know where the coward gets his details on BTs service but mine is a tad different, downloading 800KBps on torrents etc, this month, 352GB on this pc alone and I have another 2 , BTVision and a 360 that i download demos on so its at least 400GB, slightly less last month. BT do NOT have limits on their top product they do throttle torrents but you can just encrypt them.
Well I have 16 games for my 360, my mate has a Wii and has around a dozen, the majority of mine are excellent, half of his are complete twaddle, the cooking one for example. I would mention the PS3 but that only has about games.
Install and use Hotspot Shield, that encrypts all your data and uses a VPN.
Firstly the whole M$ or Microshaft et all is juvenile at best and just plain sad at worst. If it weren't for them shafting us for years os's wouldn't be where they are. Also I run Vista now, was using a dual boot xp/vista but went over to just running Vista. I also have various versions of Linsux (see how silly it is). My machine isn't special, an Intel 6400, 3Gig of 6400 DDR2 Ram at 4-4-4-12, around 8-900 Gig HD space, a 7900GT.
Response to Dax Farrer
And here we have the typical English and esp English media statement that so infuriates the other parts of the UK/Britain.
We have had so many waves of immigrants to this country, all assimilate that unique English-ness eventually. The wry humour, the reserve etc the essentially unstateable thing that is being British
English and British are not exclusively interchangable !!!!
Here's the email
You recently signed a petition asking the Prime Minister to "Insist that
OFCOM and the ASA stop Broadband Providers advertising 'unlimited' services
that are in fact limited in the small print or by un-defined fair use

So they have sold 3 mil PS3s but only 2 mil games meaning that over 1 million (quite a few will have bought more than one game) PS3 owners do not own any games. This isn't very good for Sony seeing as they are making a loss on the console and are expected to make their money on selling games.
Although I've found the quality of the Pipex service sporadic to say the least and the fact that I was signed to a Max-Unlimited product which they then changed to Limited but not telling us what the limit is hasn't helped. However I have found the helpdesk staff to be very helpful in the 4-5 occassions I have dealt with them, there was one exception but then that can happen to any ISP. I pity the staff if they are to be moved to Tiscali as they really don't seem to have a clue how to minimise customer churn, run a network, run an ISP etc etc, and the few people I know who work for them despise it.
