Re: And Radio 3 needs to be kicked off FM

The BBC is a PUBLIC service, paid for by a licence fee* - not a god** given right. It is not ITV. The fact X gets more viewers/listeners than Y does not mean the BBC should disregard Y. I have never listened to Radio 3. Since when did you become the sole arbitrator of democracy and decry which services are relegated to DAB alone? Buy a DAB radio for your car, no one is stopping you.

The BBC is also not a democracy. ITV is.. if no one watches then the programme is cancelled. Having said that the BBC should be embracing non proprietary systems or not bothering at all. The trouble is OSS has no DRM so they really should have thought about it all before they opened the can of worms.

*I do not pay a licence fee because I am quite happy to wait a few hours and watch/listen for free until they sort themselves/the law out.

** may not actually exist

Reboot the formula: F1 and FIFA tweaked for another year

Too fat to play outside?

FIFA! Why play a game on a console/PC that you can play in the park? (alright I except that dog mess can be an issue). I quit at FIFA 97 when it cheated me out of a world cup with a Edgar Davids bycicle kick from the centre circle which flew in to the top corner in injury time.

Re: Things that are forever ...

Once something is in the public domain, audio, film, print or electronic warbling it is has always had the potential to be there for ever. Ask the BBC about early Dr Who episodes.

Dunno but the worlds biggest virus was only 640K, which "ought to be enough for anybody"...
