Including a Q8200 and the afore mentioned P4.
Work is now Windows 7 and is our W7 test PC!!
I hate it - much prefer SP1 or SP3 - but then I was trying to install on a P4 2.4!!!!
A few years ago they were getting their highest viewing figures. Then the rot started.
Unsurprisingly their highest viewing figures were in their logo free era.
Then there was the picture quality drop when they moved multiplex, I watched the BT Vision streams with no logos instead.
Last time I watched a 5th gear I skipped through it. A bit annoying, bad picture and an even more annoying logo.
And Gadget Show was getting silly too!
This version of (program name) is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.
Other Win 7 machines have the nasty bug of no VGA DOS graphics support, unlike 3.11, 95, 98, 2000, XP.
I still use XP at home and will continue to.
I haven't bought any music for a couple of years. I was given a double CD recently - now in slots 9 & 10 in the Car changer, but buy - no.
Why - because nothing decent has been done.
The given CD - that was a friends band.
I will admit to liking NWOBHM and similar rock from that period. But why rebuy what you have?
As to films - 2 in the last year. Why only 2?
DVD doesn't look as good as BluRay, BluRay is still too expensive, but made an exception for Clint, last night though just ordered a few Pixars in a sale. But since the BluRays exists I will not purchase the DVD.
What have I downloaded - recently nothing, prior to that couple of rips of HD-DVDs which were of films I wanted to buy but wasn't getting the DVD, and I already had a BluRay player - which also happens to be good at streaming, this time I wanted to be on the winning side after Beta and Minidisc.
What have I bought?
Games, the value behind a good game at £37 is to be honest worth the money, a poor game is not worth £5. When I see online times of around 8 days, and single player around 20 hours, I think I have found my moneys worth. Then all three of my children have played as well.
If the production companies want my money provide the following
Music I want to buy at sensible prices (definately under £10)
BluRays at sensible prices - not £20
Games with good replay value, and are not poor ports from other formats (I am looking at you Ubisoft), if Naughty Dog can make a great playing and stunning looking game so can other companies. I have already decided not to buy a game from a British software house because it is a very poor port, low resolution and frame dropping is unacceptable now.
Well mainly that the free Freeview PVR they gave us needs BTBB to operate, and it is full of Come Dine With Mes - and I don't want to upset the wife.
Then loads of places using our email addresses.
But Phorm would have forced the change, I did phone up BTV support and ask about moving from BT and then they got into a panic.
I think one of the reasons they dropped Phorm is the threats from BTV and Total Broadband customers.
Now that will sink it!
I actually told some UK staff I was off if it was implemented, it seemed they had had hundreds of complaints.
My only problems were 6 BT email addresses to change and a BT Vision box.
I think the rear of losing a good proportion of customers sorted out BT.
I have included Kunts dream date
The one supermarket to get online shopping right.
Like or Hate Tesco - Amazon are dead in the grcery market.
It is a town so is not going to be pretty anyway. So if they don't want one I'll have one.
1 computer in dining room Q8200
1 TV in living room 46" Sony
2 PS in living room PS2 and or course a PS3
No PCs, TVs or games consoles in bedrooms.
Your recent tests did this one and said too expensive. But you can actually use it as a computer, cannot see why anyone would pay £700 for something they can't use as a computer.
Yet you give the Ipad a high mark - very odd
I think the camera must do the three colours seperately and finish on luminance.
Absolutely fantastic film.
One of my favourites.
2 was cool 3 was cool, 3.1 isn't.
2 was a large hypersonic transport aircraft, 3 is a red rocket, but Gerry Anderson had no 3.1.
Thunderbirds are Go!
Our PS3 has never scratched a disc.
We already have something similar on a Playstation 2
Well one of mine has.
The other two are by the PC for capturing old tapes
Very early DVD adopter, so didn't bother with Vhs - as to films - recorded them off the TV in better quality than Vhs.
Straight from Beta to DVD, now gone BluRay.
I occasionally win.
I like a lot of the heritage awards - going to preserved railways and XH558.
Went to a lovely garden last week - visitor centre paid by lottery.
It is something fun to do and costs me £2 a week on Saturdays.
And I am not stupid
I thought it was 1/4 mile
Never found them while scanning for radio to listen to in the car. Not on my list of stations on my AV receiver.
Pity 6 Music is not on FM. Then I could listen to it in the car rather than through a sat box.
Before anyone jumps in and say get DAB car radio - show me one with CD changer control AND an MD slot.
Well I have now had a good read - the sound issue is a right nightmare. My receiver can take Dolby Digital or DTS. So transcoding as far as I am concerned is essential. So add that to the twin tuner and hard disk requirement please!.
They are all missing the essentials of any box, 2 tuners and a hard disk. This on its own is enough for a fail.
I will wait and see what Humax or Topfield produce when we get some proper boxes.
Pace/Phillips well where do I start, Pace do not even support their Freeview PVR, leaving owners with an expensive door stop come digital switchover.
I hope this will still be safe. Excellent product.
We do really need games which you will want to play and play again, then your children play.
There are so many games out there with no lasting play that people will just sell after a week or so rather than still play 6 months down the line.
Cheaper to buy new quite often than second hand. My last two games were from supermarkets. Mid October, day off, day of game release, cheaper than Game or even the online retailers, it would be rude not to.
As to game play my penultimate purchase above, 30 hours single player campaign and 5 1/2 days online multiplayer so far. I want that platinum. Other games I have spent a few minutes playing and thought - what a waste of time.
As to duff games, the PS3 tends to not get many of these, most of the games are pretty good and some are brilliant.
<---- It is a MK-NDI
Set up a new hotmail address JUST for this game and supply that as well
In Worcester it was a key marginal, we wanted Brown out, so voted for Robin Walker, didn't want to risk getting Michael Foster back in.
I can run my car on the stuff
Lets pick on the Millipedes - it is fun
Why is it when I see the name Palin I get an article about some woman rather than the great man himself?
He is getting his coat for another excellent travelogue
Excellent burning software - this has to be installed
I had a very odd very short dream about them.
Cut to a film studio with their leader in a red sidecar with wings, and the well known music going.
Yes I KNOW he should have been on the bike and Cable in the sidecar.
This is what happens when you tidy up your Wallace & Grommit recordings during an election campaign.
Yes the same dream claimed that Nick Cleggs dad was Norman Clegg, and I think the Sallis link did it,
So it is up to you, is the Liberal Democrat theme Wallace & Grommit or Last of the Summer Wine?
Final question who plays Shawn & Wendoline?
Will be getting this treatment if he show up
Last seen in XP and the last OS which can run VGA graphics dos programs.
It takes time to rewrite and a working program brings in money. Rewriting can take ages on a huge system.
Still a lot of money but no C4HD, but at least I have BBC HD and I can record it.
My Sony HDTV also is not DVB-T2 compliant, but I knew that, but needed a new TV anyway.
No way to record so this is a non event, also my transmitter is also HD less.
However I do have Freesat HD so why no C4HD on there - I mean I pay taxes therefore I am a part owner.
I would just give up radio.
Unless someone produces a Minidisc head unit with Sony CD changer control.
And gives it to me for free.
What is the point of not being able to record?
This is an expensive box and you cannot even record with it.
However unlike Pace I expect it will work.
I have been left with a PVR which fails to work after switchover, thanks Pace, I will wait for a Humax PVR.
I hate the mp3 compression I have heard with Heavy Rock it sounds very strange.
Upscaling of DVD, I did quite a few tests with an upscaling BR player (PS3) on a DVD vs a Pioneer DVD player on RGB Scart and Component.
Bluray is definately best.
DVD via BR player, no noticable differences between DVD RGB interlaced and DVD Component progressive which were not attributable to the picture setting on the TV for different inputs.
DVD player has resume and doesn't have the film removed to stick a game in.
RGB auto wide switches component doesn't.
Yes we still watch our DVDs via RGB Scart.
W series Sony TV, so not a cheap TV nor one with poor processing.
Standard Definition still looks good but HDTV blows it away
I prefer to game with a 46" TV rather than a 17" monitor. But then what about the other things you use consoles for?
Watching films, streaming video, streaming music, photo albums ect, yes get lots of appliances which total more than a console and do less.
Further more to the lag, with a console, you have possibly a 1 or 2 field buffer in the TV, the controller is near the console and using Bluetooth. When using this online the control instructions have to be sent to the server farm, the instructions then processed, but then how long does it take for the frame to be encoded, sent to the PC and displayed?
I notice that Ubisoft are involved.The Assassins Creed games would be impossible to play if the lag was too long, you would not be able to counter kill or catch yourself.
Finally I prefer a 6 axis or dual shock to keyboard & mouse, flopped out on the settee much easier than using the PC.
I see enough of this when online multiplayering.
Do I want it when playing single player?
There are a few levels of cider.
Mass produced fizz
Decentish mass produced
Decent bottled stuff
I remember when Tauntons Dry Blackthorne was nice - now it is well - just sweet fizz, when I was young all the cider drinkers went for it. Now it is revolting.
Scrumpy Jack on draught is quite nice as is Stowford Press, taken over the TDB market.
Gaymers Somerset in bottles is quite nice, but I cleaned my local Tescos out of Henneys dry last night, special offer and pre ripoff tax uplift.
As to Magners - is it relabeled Bulmers Original?
Anyway a nice pint of decent cider for all my fellow cider lovers.
Gordon never did get his lessons in Chancelloring from Ken and it shows.
The current one looks like.
I hate the badger
I am going to squash him
What about if it is YOUR TV?
To the ordinary person Tax Evasion is not as bad as having your own posessions stolen.
I has taken a few years but finally I have found a game I have to play, and play every night.
Yes I bought Uncharted 2 on launch day, and still playing now.
The multiplayer is great fun.
ONLY ON PS3
yes it is an Mk-NDI
I live in Worcester - but the main concern here is getting rid of the current MP, who I personally feel is useless.
It is going to be tactical voting in this constituency, he will get very few votes - especially with that hair!
I know who I am voting for - the only person who has actually been door to door and chatted to me.
Not the best reason, but of the main parties I feel the safest choice.
Penguin - more usefull than Foster
