Re: BBC 3 or BBC 7
I stopped watching C5 when the logo returned, I emailed them, deleted the timers, told them about it.
But according to C5 their logo is more importatnt than viewers

BTW I did watch Torchwood and Gavin & Stacey but that purple blob just turned the channel off for me.
Distracting on utv1 to 4 as well
C4 HD might as well not be there logoing a HD channel - moronic!
TBH this would be something for the government to ban - on screen channel logos.
The result will have huge implications for the cloud industry, I am following this with interest.
My personal thoughts are that local Irish and EU laws matter more in Ireland and the EU than any US laws. Basically the US has no jurisdiction in Ireland. MS may be between a rock and a hard place but MS US cannot demand that MS IE breaks local laws.
To be honest it was a pain, wouldn't seed properly, so I stuck it on Youtube instead.
But if it had been taken down by the copywrite organisations could I have complained?
I wanted to torrent as I don't like Youtubes framerate changing.
I filmed at 16x9 anamorphic 50Hz, I wanted it kept to 16x9 50Hz.
In the end someone hosted it for me for a few days to get the AVI.
As you have read above, I tried to use TPB to distribute a video I shot, to people I knew. So that was fully legal and my distribution method is now being blocked.
Is my work phone, allowed to make personal calls provided we do not take the piss.
Now the people who make the most personal calls use the phone the least they do not exceed contract.
Yes I make 4 or 5 personal calls a week. But as I am not sales noot many work calls.
HOWEVER. I do get called, can be anytime except at night.
A company Sony were able to ignore until the yanks made them.
Was fun being able to play a macraprovision DVD and record it to tape. (Needed to return a film to producers and wait for remaster as the layer change went wrong).
The recording was anamorphic and the downmixed to pro logic was more annoying than the drop in resolution. This was with a very expensive Sony VCR.
Anyway why did Sony go DRM?
Well it is the fault of all the people who got Vhs rather than the much much better Beta format. Since the second worst video format ever beat a better format Sony needed to guarantee a source of media, so they bought a few music and film studios.
Just think if you had bought a Sony Sanyo or Toshiba VCR rather than that Vhs crap we may not have had one of the main innovators dragged down the DRM route.
Just for fun my Sanyo VTC-M40 still works, just need a post DSO Freeview box since my Freeview PVRs were killed off by DSO.
Stupid idea trying to ban GTA5, may be ban a game if it is really bad, but GTA5 is pretty well liked.
Personally I prefer to play as a goody, baddy CAN be fun, but I do not enjoy killing NPCs which are not a threat. Morally ambiguous is also no real issue.
So if an alien is shooting at me, or even just an alien soldier, it will be wiped out. People trying to kill my character, bye bye.
But killing shop keepers, prostitutes, non shooting Police, no thanks.
It is possible to play the Infamous games as a baddy with good intentions without wiping out huge amounts of ordinary characters. Wipe out the baddies violently.
Yet I really enjoy morally ambiguous games, some of my favourite characters are like this (Nathan Drake & Joel for example)
I have had quicker accelerating cars, one a sportyish hatch, the other a 4 door saloon.
One of them was an Avenger based hatch back. 8 sec 0 - 60 (timed) from 1600cc
The other was a German built luxobarge with an engine from Merseyside (under 8 sec timed)
Lets just say that the 1970s car is still one of the best handling cars I have driven.
I like the 500.
I do not like this, not an issue with the car at all but it is not a 500. A 500 is a small car, this is not.
Now the BMW Mini.
Some of them are huge, and one I saw this weekend had a huge tacky looking Mini badge on the boot. Really big like a couple of foot wide.
Small cars should be small and not rivalling large cars, they look ridiculous.
I don't like 3:2 pulldown.
24 frames/second Film on 60Hz my last 4x3 TV could take 60Hz RGB, but not NTSC. Never tested the WS CRT with NTSC, just went RGB.
Prefer the BluRay way of letting an HDTV handle 24FPS
As to not noticing, may be on computer monitors they are happy.
But 50Hz uploaded to Youtube gets converted quite dodgily to 60Hz.
I reall enjoyed reading it.
Now for my thoughts.
For that sort of power and torque I think you are much better off with a torque converter, they seem to cope with high power a lot better than a clutch. As an example the old Diesel Hydraulic locomotives would put 1350bhp through a torque converter.
This would provide a lot better operating environment for the transmission.
