Gold meddler: Doctor Who is 50 years old TODAY

A few thoughts...

Interesting that the Ponds never figured anywhere. The actors didn't appear to be in the after party either.

Well done to all involved for keeping the story under wraps. It was a real surprise to me when number 4 turned up.

Nice the way they separated War Command from the High Council so they didn't have to explain where Timothy Dalton was.

And if you haven't seen it, look for "The Night Of The Doctor" on Youtube. Give's great perspective on how long the Time Wars actually ran for. McGann gets a good send of and gets to name check The Big Finish companions too.

A very timely article...

I am currently looking to setup a cloud service for a company- We found that the "free" services, iDrive, Google Drive, DropBox et al, could not handle the file sizes that we needed to put in the cloud (multi-gigabyte). Any chance you could follow up this article with a top ten or Register Recommended on the various products that are currently on the market (I'm aware of ownCloud and WD's My Cloud).

Thanks

Re: How friggin awesome is evolution!

I know you are trolling but this probably supports evolution more- the mice that don't have the immunity die and therefore do not procreate, whereas the ones that do, get to pass on that trait to the next generation.

Firms fined $350,000 after yogurt sting uncovers review rigging

Andrew Moore

Re: Does anyone want to believe (online reviews)

There's a number of factors I take into account when reading an online review:

1. How many reviews has the author written?

2. What type of username does the author use.

3. Is the author American?

So if you have a low number or this is the only review; have a username of xxxdsfskfjdsh123; and/or are an entitled American who does not know how to behave in a civilised society, then I'm going to ignore the review.

I want to know why these devices need to know the time in the first place??? Okay, I am aware that my oven can be set to come on at a particular time but I've never used that function and don't know anyone that does. My slow cooker has a better idea- you can tell it to come on x number of hours and minutes from now- no need for it to know the time AND be changed twice a year then the clocks go back/forwards.

Re: good things come to those who wait

@Loyal Commenter- yep, I live in Dublin- you might want to read my previous post regarding craft beer in Ireland.

But Guinness hasn't been an Irish company for many years (some would say that it was never an Irish company in the first place). And now they are owned by Diageo, they've no claim to Irishness.

Re: good things come to those who wait

Even here in Ireland (the home of Guinness*) there are much better stouts and porters. Try O'Hara's Leann Follain, Dungarvan's Blackrock stout, Trouble Brewing's Dark Arts, 8 Degrees Knockmealdown Porter. And Hooker Brewery are releasing their Napoleon Stout nationwide.

*Guinness marketing hype. Everyone in the industry knows that they are a UK company.
