This has been ongoing for the last couple of days. It's the most popular discussion site in Ireland. Someone will get a spanking - I hope.

UPC aka Liberty Global run the cable TV market in most of Ireland, They also have UPC operating in Switzerland, and the Netherlands as already stated. For those of you with TiVo, they are exclusive to VM, so who knows what's going to happen there.
LGI(UPC) are currrently launching a Sky box buster in their European markets - Horizon. http://horizon.upc-cablecom.ch/en/?intcmp=promo1_experience#welcome has more bumph about it. It offers the ability to record four programmes at the same time.
Their broadband service is excellent here in Ireland. minimum package is 50Mb and 5Mb up, but they don;t cater for those who want less or cheaper packages. They also provide telephony packs.
Just a FYI, chaps.
Read the first page of the article.What happened in the end?
Open to non UK residents would be nice for starters - I suppose I'm pissing against the wind on this one.
..once i saw it didn't support Freesat. I suppose it was the cost factor.
Well, fcukity, fcuk, fcuk.
Confined to UK again. Last time I wona prize here as a non-UK resident was when I won a Duron 12 years ago.
Looks like I'm losing again.
Rep of Ireland ranked 8!
I'll be off now to have a few quid on that, then..
It reminds me of Casper.
It seems Lester is pulling my (leg)?
It was bad enough swalling the spider, but swallowing the hoax is more upsetting.
There was an old lady..
who swallowed a spider....
Good old Don McLean..
Drove my chevvy to the levy, to have a quick pee....
All over again, I fear.
So much for experiencing the red ring of death after conviction.
Are they going to advocate pulling the expression "unlimited" when it comes to downloads as well?
It's all a load of bollocks!
SIX months - now, THAT'S a deterrent!
What a fucking joke!
It's not just the Yanks..
I was coming through Leeds?Bradford on my way to Dublin with 2 pieces of speaker cable (12" in length each) in my carry on, when they were confiscated. They could be used for binding, I was told. The two trouser belts, phone charger, laptop power adapter and shoe-laces were all ignored.
Thank goodness they're so eagle-eyed.
So, no Farmville!!!!!
...in my mailbox. I deleted it, thinking it was a scam.
Nowt to do with biology.
I responded to all your surveys until you decided to keep your competitions confined to UK residents only.

http://www.wikileaks.se/ obviously under pressure too..
Maybe it's been taken over by the pirate hoardes?
The end is nigh
Well, it's nearer today than yesterday.
Doing it on the cheap.
Happening in Ireland for over a month.
Numerous tales, but the article here sums it up pretty much http://www.siliconrepublic.com/comms/item/16831-pc-repair-scammers-are
Luckily, most seem to smell a rodent when they're asked for credit card details.
I suppose that means more new hardware. New amp/receiver. New TV. New "anything with a HDMI connection"
They gotta be joking.
I think I've got it!
I presume these were the famous pieces of driftwood that once were branches of the trees used to hang the monkeys in Hartlepool, all those years ago.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_hanger for reference.
I've mailed Jeff Stelling of Sky Sports asking him to confirm this speculation.
A bit flash, don't you think? - that's me out then.
You lied, therefore..
you're going down.....
@ Nameless Faceless Computer User - Hmm
George W brought the Bush into disrepute a long time ago.
Which was it?
Clams or mussels...China Daily says mussels, Lester says clams.
I'll be able to see all the passengers I'm carrying in FSX - I better be sober though.
Hmm - I'll believe it when I see it
Knowing Toshiba's past attempts at TVs of the future, - anyone remember the SED technology that went under the mothballs pretty sharpish, after 2 - 3 years of development?
Deja vu, I tell ya!
The scumbag caused a lot of issues for users of the site. It was a great resource for flight-sim add-ins.
Comments such as "doing their job properly" shouldn't be in the discussion. He was contacted before the matter was referred to the men in blue and had his chance which he chose to ignore - the prick is a criminal, and he deserves to get his come-uppance.
This reminds me of Boris Yeltsin
He visited Ireland back in 1994 and was due to meet the Irish Prime Minister at Shannon Airport.
However, he failed to exit from the plane and rumours abounded that the man had a heart attack/stroke - call it what you will..
Enlightens us more
Another Red in the bed conspiracy theory.
LET THAT BE A WARNING TO YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh - nd wat abt txt spk?
It's the end of the world as we know it...
Chicken Little - the sky is falling!!!
The joys of beaing a Bears fan - almost as bad as following Leeds!
Certainly as expensive with Ken's ticket prices :p
@ Adam Foxton
May I direct you to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exclamation_mark
To all those wondering about the lack of a tech angle - it's a bootnote....
Probably because it's related to footballers.
Irish site will stay
A rep posted on an Irish BB that komplett.ie's future is secure:
Thank heaven for that. Cracking site for the most part.
Remember, fingers can take your eyes out too!
Why is a sport named after a function key?
was an amoosing tale.
Enough with the exclamation points, for crying out loud.
It was funny the first time, not!!!
Please clarify, Lester
Get a DVD player which can pump out 1080i or - even better - 1080p via HDMI.
and go on to say...
Hi-def Discs Forget 'em until the Blu-ray/HD DVD thing is settled, and they actually produce a decent range of films on the winning format
Why bother getting the player if you're not going to get the discs?
He must be barking mad...
And they call it puppy love...
I'm going out on a limb here, but I think the bandit who did the dastardly deed should face the chop.
Small typo needs correcting...
isn't it meant to be "limited access pubic place"? :)
Well, not really. Work filter rates the linked site as pornographic and blocks it. All I can do is dream...
Ooooh Lester..very sneaky
Tee hee. That'll learn him, as they say.
/awaits with baited breath.
