I do wish I could get BT to traffic shape MY traffic to prioritise PSN over bloody youtube, or anything else.

Last week was better, but Moffat was better when not show running, this last episode was just silly.
Moffat high points are
Blink, "Are you my mummy?", GITF, Rory as a Roman Centurion and Auton. And the War Doctor.
RTD had more shockers, but also knew how to delegate. I still think Turn Left was his highlight.
Centre diff lock.
Self levelling suspension.
An engine with character.
I have been in an Evoque and I much prefer my Discovery 2.
Not quite as fast, but much roomier and those twin sunroofs.
Mine is the cross over model, last of the traditional things, such as two live axles, transfer box with diff lock, an engine designed by them rather than a Ford or BMW lump. But new features as well such as traction control and HDC. And the only model with hydraulic anti roll
I genuinely had issues with idiot buyers. I was offering a repair service for an item, they buy the repair then leave neg feedback because I did not send an item and they demanded one.
No morons read the advert "Repair Service" the picture "repair service" and the big warning in the advert
5 in two months
I up costs to cover paypal as well, but I prefer of all things a crispy tenner.
But then I have managed to wangle a paypal business account with debit card.
Ebay once decided it needed a card as well as paypal just in case paypal was empty. I set up Ebay to use my paypal card.
Unfortunately I could not set up paypal to accept the paypal card!
For a site with
1) Not so steep fees.
2) Does not put fees on postage rates (I add 20% to cover these!)
3) Does not down mark sellers for stupid buyers (had 5 in a couple of months could not read advert, title, nor the big imformation box in the middle)
4) Has a better search.
5) Does not make it unaffordable for the small seller of cheap items, (no profit on a 99p sale)
6) If there is a feedback system allow you to leave negative feedback for buyers.
I used to sell lots of crud on Ebay (old burger toys ect) for small amounts of money, now it is cheaper to charity bag the lot.
I still do a service on Ebay but not sold one in a week or two despite good feedback, market saturated by big sellers.
Digital Terrestrial depended on
Your TV & decoder
Where you live
I have seen DTTV which was as good as a good DVD, I have seen DTTV as good as a video CD.
Where you live, my digital reception was better than my analogue - same aerial
TV Anamorphic widescreen is prefereable to letterboxing, RGB usually bypasses artificial sharpening. My last TV had pretty shocking sharpening that I actually considered physically disabling it. It was disabled in movie mode so I used that for video tapes, everything else used carefully set up personal. BUT RGB sources were DVD, PS2, DTTV PVRs, and the TV tuner was internally RGB, so I just never bothered.
The decoder in my TV was also very good, but the TV basically wore out and was also not 8K compliant, sold due to wanting HD.
Early bitrates were higher than today.
Still only on the Earth and Moon, trying to level up, keep doing random missions for XP and Valour points.
Quite a lot of my friends list are on it.
The ability to save random players is good, as are the special events.
The maps are pretty big and complex, I still get lost in the Russia map.
A pop up map would be nice, one you earn like in Borderlands 2.
Now as to its single player longevity, hmm better than quite a few games, but less than a good RPG eg Fallout 3/NV, and it still is not as good as Borderlands for fun. 3 classes, 3 species, 2 sexes.
Co-op is good if they do not run off while you are looting.
Writing is OK but nowhere as good as say Naughty Dog.
Solid 7/10 game.
Enemy AI is not great, Most places you can hide behind cover, they respawn quickly for farming.
Inspirations I have found are looting and fire teams, Borderlands. Drop in co-op Journey, general feel Starwars.
I know the feeling, there is a new one out there for me, mine has
No HDMI switching.
Too many surround inputs needed
Remote starting to die
But mine sounds great
Only got room for 5. not 7. anyway
Currently doubling up on inputs, DVD is fed coax from DVD and optical from PS3. PS4 and Humax share vie a crap optical switch the TV in.
I do need in near future 4 HDMI switching, and I still need coax in, and phono in
But the inventors of both are on the same side.
Panasonic & Sony
Same as it was with DV & BluRay.
BTW my working VCR collection is down to 1 Sanyo and 1 Sony, the Panasonic is dead and my expensive Sony fried a control chip when the soldering iron leaked mains into it.
I type in a number and a piece of text and the search gives me everything for the text and ignores the number.
As I was looking for pictures of a unique railway carriage the running number is essential.
Yahoo is similarly broken as well.
Images - well one of them is a dress!
Taking pictures of staff entering and leaving and putting it on website saying GCHQ staff is wrong
Taking pictures of your friends who happen to work there and putting them on an online album as pictures of your mates is perfectly normal.
As to secrecy - you can know quite a bit about the place without breaking secrecy laws.
As for the staff the lower ranking they are the more officious they are.
Well we have to include, real, film, game ect
The SAS, the best special forces in the world except for maybe the SBS
The Doctor, the best of the Timelords
Arnie, see Predator and Terminator 2, also those cool helicopters when he was a clone
Bruce Willis, because well lots, and howe many times has he saved the world.
Nathan Drake, beats pirates AND zombies
Yoda, because he is, and most of the other Jedis in the prequels were knobs.
The FAA before they lost their FA2s, because they are good
More when I think of them
Porting from the PS3 version of a game would be even worse than porting from the PC version.
I was not on about porting from PS3 (although that seemed to be quite common in the last few years) but about the fact if there is a PS version there is already non DX code there. So if you have code already written for other platforms adding yet another would not be a show stopper.
As I mentioned only 3 platforms currently supported use Direct X, Windows (XP to 8), And the two most recent DirectXBoxs 360 and 1. One of those platforms is HUGE, but it is only one platform.
