Mirrors

Iv come to the conclusion that i prefer external mirrors to "camera" mirrors, for a very simple reason. I can sit in the car, waiting to pick up family, and see whats behind me, without having the key in the ignition and thus, not wasting any power (be it fuel or electrical).

In the aim of saving the environment, we're using more electricity unnecessarily

Google maps Russian assault on Savannah

Nick
Unhappy

try searching for "whitby" in maps.google.CO.UK

you'll find it wants you to go to Canada

if you want to go to the one in the UK, you literally have to type Whitby UK, and even then it points you somwhere just south west of Scarborough, some 25miles south of the seaside resort!

Google Maps at its best...i think not

Fire stations too much like fire stations, says Govt

Nick
Stop

sorry, but

i think the best part of this story was at the end: "* NB, this is the tech angle. Thank you." <- fantastic!!

When do you think this is going to move to a "lets all go down the police station to look at the people in the cells" sort of thing? only a matter of time

AND, i dont think that making the fire stations "look nice" and "environmentally friendly" (how this is done with fire engines tearing around all over the place churnin out fumes god knows) will stop prank calls to them? maybe thats where they should start looking into. I dont care if theyre being nice to the environment as long as I can get through, and they can get out, when my house is on fire!

Rose Tyler beams back into Doctor Who

@ Anonymous Coward (@ Sam comment)

FYI - The shop mannequins did dress up as Father Christmas playing band in the 1st episode of series one, did NOT have spinning Christmas trees

You’re thinking of the Robots (I honestly cant remember their names, Dr Who said it 2005 Christmas special "The Christmas Invasion" just before he fell into his regenerative sleep, again) who also had they flying/exploding baubles in the 2006 Christmas special "the runaway bride"

The mannequins did not have Spinning Christmas trees, though they did have firearms in their arms (excuse the pun) and possessed wheely bins

game stories

A computer game story was also featured in CSI Miami at some stage in previous series, where some teenagers got so hooked on a game they decided to re-live it. the CSI's then played the game to solve the mystery of where they will strike next

trouble is, stories like that give the "computer games rot kids minds" people ammunition!

RE: How?

The same way you can get can use versions of photo editing software that dont require an activation key..get a crack, or a cracked version that ignores that portion of the program

Wanna stick USB 2.0 to your network?

Nick

to all the people recommending software..

you still need to have MORE THAN ONE PC on to be able to do something like print from laptop to a printer that is currently connected to desktop pc

though it has its floors, this is ideal! means that ANY PC is able to print to its chosen printer, over the network, even if its the ONLY pc thats turned ON!

same with NAS etc

If you think your machine doesnt work, throw it out the window. Then you'll KNOW it doesnt work!!

That said, most the time for a Windows based PC is literally OUT the window (and no...im not a Mac user)
