"some of the positive charge on the insect may transfer to the plant"

It's been a while since I did it at school, but doesn't electricity work the other way round?

Re: SimTower + Streets Of Sim City

Man, I thought I was the only person who played SimTower!

Gutted when I lost the disk :(

Review: Dell XPS 10 Windows RT tablet and dock

Gazareth

It was, until they bought Alienware. XPS is more the 'Premium' brand rather than performance nowadays.

Microsoftie's tell-all on 'rival-flinging' Ballmer: The politics of disbelief

Gazareth

Re: "If Elop was not a Trojan horse, then he would have kept Symbian and Meego alive"

@Eadon: "Elops destruction of Nokia only makes sense if he's a trojan horse, nothing else fits."

Seems odd that you'd make the assertion that Ballmer is doing the same thing to MS, and then come up with that in the very same thread!

Why not say:

Ballmer's destruction of Microsoft only makes sense if he's a (Linux/Unix/open source) trojan horse, nothing else fits.

Halo 4 game review

Re: Good review...

Easy explanation for lack of fauna - any species that run towards explosions/gun fire/big metal exoskeletons have become extinct. The fauna's there, it's just heading rapidly away from you :)

Slideshow: A History of Horror in 20 Scary Games

Gazareth

Loved the 7th Guest

D was good as well, although I suspect it hasn't aged well.

Half Life gave me a few jumpy moments, and the Ravenholm level in HL2...

The opening of Bioshock, where you're trapped in the Bathysphere had the heart racing too!

Dishonored game review

Re: Glitches

It's not a Bethesda title - they're just publishing it.

Arkane Studios are the development team.

Enjoying it so far, do keep thinking at points that Batman: AC was more fun though.

Re: But what about the books?

Yeah, that got a laugh in the cinema.

He orders the drink as described above near the start of the card game.

There's a moment of quiet reflection, then most of the rest of the players order one too. Le Chiffre is a little wound up by this.

Re: It doesn't take take thousands of years

The Algebraist by Iain M. Banks had some similar issues in the semi-background.

People on the slow ships being overtaken by the quicker method.

And then the quicker method gets broken.

Why British TV drama is crap – and why this matters to tech firms

Re: Piffle

Nope, it's the very definition of a procedural show, which they all are & the production of which the US have got down to a fine art.

Headmaster

Loved playing this years ago, you're right that not many other sports games can matched its fast & fun gameplay!

On a pedantic note, in his current role as England manager, Roy Hodgson doesn't actually have the option to buy & sell players...

ELISA is kinda like panning for gold, but with a much higher accuracy.

Also, thumbs up for Iain M. Banks.

I'd highly recommend Star Maker by Olaf Stapledon. Blew my mind.

Last & First Men by the same author isn't a bad read either.
