SCRAP the TELLY TAX? Ancient BBC Time Lords mull Beeb's future

Re: Just a News Operation

The last time I watched a decent Drama on BBC was Outcasts, and they cancelled that after 8 episodes.

Just a News Operation

"The most radical proposals came from Grade, who said the BBC should be cut back to a news operation and leave the cooking shows and talent shows to the private sector."

It might be the most radical, but in my humblest opinion, is the most sensible.

Alternatively, have you BBC News, BBC One and BBC Two paid by the state, but leave the other stuff to subscription basis (CBeebies, BBC Three, hell, even have BBC Film - everyone else is doing it).

Steam Cloud

I had problems with Steam Cloud for over 9 months, and they kept on telling me it was my end / my ISP / my router / my AV.

Turned out, it was their end. 5 minute fix and all was well again. Can't say I was impressed with their support.

And don't bother following their twitter account @steam_support. Thats only used to keep you posted on client updates, not the actual support stuff you'd be interested in.

Microsoft dumps two distributors overboard in Blighty cull

AmmyKami83

So how many will be left?

We've used AVnet (ex Bell Micro / Ideal) for a number of years now, last time we did a contract review we looked at other distributors and the choice was fairly limited then, so we stuck with them.

Or will we have to start thinking about reselling Office 365? Surely this can't be the case?

Microsoft Partner Downloads

I've been trying to download Windows 8.1 all afternoon from the partner portal, cancels after 500MB.

Anyone else having that issue?

OK, so we paid a bill late, but did BT have to do this?

Can only access Google

We had a call from a client the other day, and they said they could only access Google and Youtube. Nothing.

We checked EVERYTHING - DNS was fine, names were being resolved, but you just couldn't access any websites except Google. w....t.....f.......

Anyway, at the end of the day, we thought, could it be BT!? No, surely, because we can access Google?

WELLLLL, as it turns out, it WAS BT - they hadn't paid their bill so they "limited" access to the internet. The limit was you can access Google and any of the Google services, but nothing else.

W*nkers.

Murdoch Facebook gloat: You're like my $580m, 'CRAPPY' MySpace

AmmyKami83

Re: Never understood the original MySpace but recently re-visited and...

That is exactly why I left it.

everyday, friends requests from bands - "Hey! Sorry for contacting you this way, but we think you'll love our shit!".

I drew the line when some rapper guy sent me a friends request "Yo, wassup bro, blah blah blah - check out mah tooons you'll luv em, peace out", when, quite clearly, my favourite artists featured bands such as Dream Theater, Spocks Beard, The Flower Kings, etc.

UK games market clutches chest, bleeds out sales in 2012

AmmyKami83

Re: suspect data?

I think this report is solely based on retailers. Online sales and digital distribution will certainly not be factored into this. So can we say the games market itself isn't doing too badly, and that bricks and mortar retailers like Game are feeling the strain? I guess so.

@AC 12:18

Hear hear!

I remember searching for an SD Card for my camera. £25 at Currys (apparently 10% off), £12 at Amazon.

I understand overheads for retailers as I used to work for a retailer (non electrical), but still you don't have to take the p*ss out of your customer. It just offends them.

But if Amazon did oblige to pay taxes, would pay that little more?

Still, the service is good.

The latest tech firm to be accused of tax dodging: Microsoft

AmmyKami83
Joke

Re: Why has no one posted a "Microsoft Tax" joke yet....

A guy from Microsoft walks in to a UK tax office and says "I'm here to pay my tax bill".

The tax guy laughs and says "You know, I had a guy from Amazon come in asking to do that same thing! How funny, you guys never owe us anything, why now? Come on, lets forget about it and go and get ourselves a Starbucks Caramel chocolate amerilattecino double cream coffee with extra sprinkles? I'll buy. After all, it's not my money.".

Windows 8 launch outdoes Windows 7's, says Microsoft bigwig

AmmyKami83
Flame

Corporate bullshit

And this is following news that Surface hasn't really taken off as well as Microsoft wanted it to, and that corporates are not planning a Windows 8 upgrade at all?

Sorry, but I do not buy into this.

Of course, is she is referring to the number of £14.99 upgrades sold on new PCs, and the upgrades available to Volume License customers, then I guess that is almost believable.

But to say more people were eager to upgrade to 8 from a previous OS? Bullshit. I tell you something, I know people who don't know anything about Windows 8, and that is the god honest truth. And to the rest who have only just upgraded to 7? No way, we're only just getting used to this version as I've just upgraded from XP.

I like Microsoft, I work for an MS partner, I don't mind their products, but their corporate bullshit irates me.

Whatever any PS3 owner does this year...

...I highly recommend Okami HD, whether or not you played the original PS2 version. Its brilliant with or without the Move support, it looks awesome and it's one of the best PS2 games that ever came out.

Cawing retail vultures circle dying Comet, might rip some chunks off

AmmyKami83

I went into a Comet the other day

Only to find that they were only discounting goods by 10% and wouldn't budge on the price.

I can still buy goods cheaper online and from the store down the road, even after their "STOCK CLEARANCE" discount.

I'd hate to be one of their creditors right now.
