Are you a gun owner? Let us in OR ELSE, say Blighty's top cops

Black powder

Almost makes me want to take up Napoleonic reenactment and get a muzzle loader, say a Baker rifle - no! a Volleygun!

Apparently being a reenactor is a valid reason for having a shotgun permit.

Why not replace the word "gun" with "car" ?

iPad AIR 2 and iPad MINI 3, 5K iMac! World feels different today – and it IS

Re: No ipod touch 6th generation

Thanks, nor do I, unless it's karma for being a troll on occasion.

She Who Must Be Obeyed works for a part of the NHS that mandates no personal mobile phones while working. She gets round this by using an ipod Touch for her notes, ebooks etc. Plus there is an ipod dock in a couple of the theatres for music during operations.

Unfortunately the Gen 4 ipod is swhowing its age and is refusing to run some updated apps so I was looking to get her a new 6 gen.

If Apple don't want my money - fuck em.

Amazon rekindles e-readers and Fire OS without weeks of whack-a-leak fun

Omgwtfbbqtime

Having had a Fire HD since last Christmas its been in use pretty much every day.

Music - seems good, amazon cloud of most music bought through amazon, plays mp3s, havent tried ogg or flac.

ebooks - will take .mobi natively, Moon+ reader (free in kindle app store) will take epubs.

Access to usual apps, iplayer etc prices comparable to google play store.

Video - vidOnme app plays xvid fine

Battery adequate -ymmv depending on what app your running

Carousel - meh would rather have icons like most tablets.

Re: Pebble's nearly there

Funny I was just thinking the Bluetooth in my car pretty much does that already.

Outside of the car I can spare the attention to the phone.

Just a question of :

a) remembering to turn bluetooth on when I get to the car,

b) not leaving the phone on the dash when I get out of the car.

Re: FTSE 100 yield is about 3.5%

True, however careful choice of investments can give somewhat higher. My SIPP is currently running around the 18% p.a. mark, if I had paid a little more attention and liquidated my small caps I could have made 25%+ this year. 30% if I wasn't limited in my choice of investment.

Working for one of the big 4 I need to be careful not to invest in any of our clients, I really don't need internal compliance asking me those type of questions.....

What do you mean, I have to POST a PHYSICAL CHEQUE to get my gun licence?

Omgwtfbbqtime

Re: @Hud Dunlap - Why have a license at all?

Some of us still do have bows, and practice. Mines a 60lb Grozer biocomposite recurve - yes I shoot trad, no sights, no arrow guide, not even gloves. Arrows are wood, fletchings feather with linnen bindings and the nocks are horn and not dayglo plastic.

No licence required, not even club membership needed if you have somewhere to shoot.

A 60lb draw bow is considered adequate to hunt deer in the states so will seriously inconvenience/kill a human. However it is not exactly a concealable weapon and can't be left strung and ready to fire.

Just a pity bow hunting is illegal in the UK - even for grey squirrels.

It's Troll time!

As an Englishman I am fully in favour of Scotland voting yes.

Why you say?

1 - Standard Life and most of the other big pension firms will move south of the border, probably to somewhere cheap with lots of drones to hire - say the North East. (making Newcastle the financial capital of the world! Muhahaha...).

2- The Basques kicking off will distract the Spanish from whingeing about Gibraltar for a few years.

Virgin Media struck dumb by NATIONWIDE DNS outage

Omgwtfbbqtime

That would be why I never noticed any DNS problems then.

Definite fail by VM for locking the Superhub DNS away from the users.

I have heard that the reason is so that they don't have to support any user change to the DNS but since the third thing* they ask you to do is factory reset the router I don't see the point.

* First thing - reboot your computer, second thing reboot the router.
