Wightcable

save the isle of wight and buy out Wightcable. I always thought their network was pretty spanky when installed.

Hands-free kits make drivers even more dangerous

Stop

@ no, really?

there'd be less hazards on the road if motorcyclists weren't darting between traffic and overtaking stationary traffic at T junctions. Having my safe breaking distance suddenly cut in half when a bike jumps in between me and the car in front bugs the hell out of me.

What if computers went back to the '70s too?

I kinda

wish I could have been there from the beginnings to experience it. My oldest times were 386/DOS/win3.1 stuff in the mid 90s.

Maybe XP will one day be spoken of in such fond terms. it kind of is now...

Hubble's 486 back-up springs into life

David Hendy

so cool

I like stories like this. It's nice to hear about old crap becoming useful again. What kind of 486 CPU is in there? I wonder if they can overclock it a bit. Think of all the BIOS updates they can now upload!

good stuff

@ negative vista comments

What's wrong with you people? As the Mohaveexperiment clearly shows, Vista is an amazing experience.

worried

I'm a small contractor and have been in employment with a local authority for 1 year with a 6 week break. I'm little worried. unless you can rake it in i don't think it's worth it (especially with my agent's fee). would rather be an employee with a pension, car and dental.

Becta excludes Vista, Office - again

An authority in the West...

I work for an authority in the West that covers some 75 primary schools and their admin networks. I think we have only one school with Office 2007 on their Office systems. Any equipment the schools buy that come with Vista, we downgrade immediately before they're joined to the admin network. There is just no advantage to Vista from our point of view. All our application rollout packs will need to be remade for starters.

One site were keen to keep Vista on their 20 new curriculum laptops. It took 30 minutes for each to load up and configure their initial boot rubbish. Lots of problems mapping printers shared off a 2003 server. Waste of time and resources.
