At times like this we are allowed to envy you
At least the Murdoch stranglehold is being broken.
We went Amazon Prime, and may go Netflix in future.
Yes I did go to Amazon to watch their new motoring show, but there are plenty of good other programmes on there.
As usual it is punish and not learn.
As usual the major reasons are ease of access, and value for money.
People normally go for the easiest route as long as they are not being ripped off.
Of course there are people who would obtain to avoid giving Murdoch money, that is perfectly understandable. But most people will pay for content if it is easy and good value.
I do not consider a restricted satellite receiver with limited channel selections forcing users to pay more than they would like to watch what they would like easy nor good value.
Well I do
Best mapping there is.
I actually avoid Google maps for town usage as I cannot work out what is what on a LCD monitor, all grey on grey.
Definately need shooting.
Google can do a route on a URL, but its street maps are difficult to read (grey on grey)
maps.live.com have OS overlays, but search broken.
Streetmap can do OS references but positioning is slightly out
Anyway I have reported the broken search on maps.live.com, Google requires signing in.
No mapping site is that good, and all have some serious flaws.
That will be shit!
And yes if I do any photo or video on a phone it is help landscape.
There is enough material of people holding phones like tw@ts as there is.
DO NOT ENCOURAGE THEM
But I am lazy and so I tend to produce stuff which I find easy to maintain.
Duplicating code is harder work than doing it properly!
Try a lazy programmer.
Because they hate to write lots of meaningless code, they want to reuse as much as possible.
They want an easy life so will make sure their code is easy for them to fix. They will try to avoid bugs too.

Because nothing looks naffer than a firstname.lastname@example.org
Because it is more reliable and less leaky than BT emails
Because it is free with my hosting
Because I rarely get issues with it
Google ad fling
I have my domain name as my email domain.
No emails today
Don't worry I green lane as well.
Another need for OS maps
Don't want to go off piste do I?
Power it off the fag lighter.
Yes I drive on roads navigating with OS maps
To load up with OS maps rather than carry tons of paper around
Same issue as Sylvester McCoy
Will always be Maurice Moss
Just like Wurzel Gummage is Doc Who
The only time I have ever read about a Diesel powered space ship
Seen it, still no idea what it was about.
I think Forever War could be filmable, book was very good.
As to Starship Troopers, I really enjoyed the film, but I have not yet read the book.
But so many books out there to try, imagine Eon or Eternity on the big sscreen
It is rough and does not clean well.
This is MUCH better
I think they both wanted to move to fibre, they knew I was on Infinity so was working better than the old BTBB days.
The internet is rubbish
That is interesting.
As my TV is only full HD PS4 launch day is fine for me
Was the capture video on the PS4 fine, or did that glitch as well?
>>>> Haven't you guys got someone in MI6 adept at eliminating "undesirables"?
We will get one of the double Os on to it now.
The helicopter tune?
My main complaint against the green movement is the nuclear side. I am very pro nuclear, but the green movement hates it.
Reminds me of when a charity had a go at the worlds richest people, people who have given more money to good causes than them by at least 10x.
Bill Gates is doing a lot of good with his fortune.
To be honest pollution, wasting fossil fuels, and wasteful energy usage bother me more than CO2 levels. (Smog in particular is scary).
But clean energy is an essential, and we need it sooner than later.
Invest in research, thorium bed, fusion, wave power, energy storage.
Now why am I not so bothered by CO2?
1, Methane is worse. 2, saving energy means less CO2. 3, non fossil fuel means less CO2
So win win.
Actually Corbyn is an embarrasing throwback to the 1970s, but he is not obscene like Trump.
Sad old man vs angry Orangutang immitator
You forgot trump
There were worse than Trump
1 - The creationist
2 - The current minion
Hmm you are not a conservative, nothing like what I would call one.
Well most of the ones I know of understand that climate change is happening.
Global Warming is the old name, it is a LOT more complex than that.
To be honest he is scarier than Trump.
He is so anti everything, you just know there is some firty little secret somewhere, so can someone find it please?
So need to make sure no back doors at all.
That said I would be more bothered by US reading my stuff that Russia
Still was killed at birth by the comment that APS would use a better quality film than 35mm to try to equal the quality.
However the film makers would rather sell film so there was no way APS would get better than 35mm.
So APS died as a film format.
I have a Canon printer and get genuine cartridges for similar cost to decent refills.
And really cheap inks seem to mess printers up
You could always ask the British to supply some.
Umm you are claiming credit for some British things there.
Leader in tanks, that is us
Bletchley Park is here
Sport, cheapest option is to give up and do something else instead, surprisingly easy, I used to watch every grand prix, now I have no interest and you know what? It is great.
Walking Dead apppears to be in loads of places, I am using Amazon for it, a workmate uses Sky.
I have lost my Freeview PVR due to DSO, so down to Freesat for recording.
I still have to watch the last series of Red Dwarf.
I expect I can obtain it from somewhere.
Sort it out UKTV I refuse to line Turdochs pockets
They only have a few and they are not THAT old!
Quite a while ago we bought a hot home PC, top end Pentium 4, went like stink (at the time). Current OS on the market was XP SP1, so that should place the date.
Anyway got replaced at home a few years ago by a quad core, not long after my work PC chucked its hard drive, I could not get my old work PC working (found out eventually due to SP2 flaws), so as it was during the last recession to save money I grabbed my old home PC, pinched the work PC RAM and was running the fastest and oldest PC at work.
The dual core celeryon, left in the dust.
Last used this PC about a year ago, still works, still not that slow, over 10 years old.
Our quad is not that much slower than my sons games PCs.
Old PCs are perfectly workable still
I converted our XP PC from double boot to triple boot recently
Now has 7 as well.
(Other boot is Linux Mint)
XP gets most use
Is a toy, who would use that?
Cost me two grandparents
Because it can run a lot of software.
Unlike lots of other versions of Windows.
There is still a lot of DOS software out in the real world.
There is still a lot of 16 bit Windows software out there.
It can also run WIN32
What else do you need?
Funny really but XP is also the ONLY OS that can run both our last generation of software and our current generation. (My WINE attempts failed)
Perhaps, but I think that is Mays real target, she has wanted out for ages
Everyone will be worse off.
And what does it have to do with the European Court of Human Rights?
>>3. The risible border control argument. Why not take it to its logical conclusion and impose controls >>when travelling between, say, Cheltenham and Gloucester. See how much more productive your >>time will be if you have to make that journey on a daily basis.
1) Try to catch them - too many routes, I'll do A38, then via Down Hatherly, Staverton, and in from that end.
2) GVBP - try to stop someone "on a mission"
