Someone who have never actually dealt with them.
Techie gets out of Uni, gets first job low wages in support team. If they get decent they move to a higher paid place, from there they may go self employed.
The really good Indian techies work in Europe and US, or run companies in India and pay decent wages.
The poor ones stay in the low pay jobs.
I have dealings with a self employed programmer and he is pretty good.
How both are rubbery and inedible
I know to avoid E120, carmine and cochineal
Who wants to eat cactus beetles!
But then I will be going to Game on the 29th on November, but I will not be queueing!
He has knocked a LOT more than 10% offthe value of Nokia
I replaced my Sunbeam with a Carlton (needed a big saloon), that went OK for its size.
1200kg is why, lighter than the then current hatches, 1500kg for a hatch some were, ridiculous.
So a light saloon with medium sized engine could hassle a lates 90s warm overweight hatch, despite looking like it should be slower.
The 205GTi worked as it weighed the same as a packet of crisps.
I drove one once. I used to deliver cars for a Vauxhall dealer
The torque steer was horrendous.
Yes it was quick in a straightish line (torque steer), but too powerful for the chassis. Same engine in the Cavalier or Carlton was much more controllable, and top end the Carlton was quicker, (aerodynamic)
I prefered the similar accelerating 3.0 Senator.
It put me off FWD for life!
Were no match for my Sunbeam
All these proper cars, hmmm
About 20 years ago I ran a 1600 Sunbeam for 5 years, it was a great car and as something broke I repalced it with rally car bits. rally springs, exhaust ect.
I used to pick on the current hot hatches and win (XR3is ect).
The big engined small Vauxhalls were similarly fun
Why does everyone forget the Talbot hot hatch?
2.2l of goodness driving the back end.
Perhaps it was too quick!
Is Killzone Mercenary..
A decent FPS for the Vita at last
That was a very silly thing to do, it was ready months ago.
It would have sold more realeasing it then.
Are you sure it is not Pitt?
Beat me to it - have an upvote
I wonder if the Panama Canal has been repaired yet?
Students - they had either a hifi or a motorcycle AFAIR
And that will be on most peoples minds..
1) It is games
2) I need an MS console to play it
I had an X6 nice phone!
Sounds like the Nokia N8
Easy to do.
Lets use GCHQ as an example.
Been there know what they are about. I knew quite a few workers and ex workers. One of my best friends worked there, they know who I am as a real person, I am not a risk, (he had been reported due to a prank and I was mentioned, demonstarting his electronics skills). Lets just say I have a video tape of me standing on a gate holding a TV aerial pointing at my home, and the tape never left my home.
Now at work we recently took on a Pakastani chap, he knows a few dodgyish people just by being from there.
Now would that be considered a risk?
Here no - none whatsoever.
I would pick up a cheap 360 and play the 6 or so exclusives I would not mind trying.
My wife likes the look of Trials Evolution.
I want to try the shooters - basically run through the SPs, not paying for MP.
Everything else I am interested in is multiplatform or PS exclusive.
Never been a Mario fan - prefered Asteroids and Space Invaders to Donkey Kong. Prefered Sonic in MD days.
First games of this ending generation to get me was Assassins Creed, then Uncharted Drakes Fortune.
You no not have to sell you know.
We stil have a PS2 and a Wiiiiiiiiii plugged into the TV, we played Buzz on the PS2 only a couple of weeks ago.
The Wiiiiiii howver, expensive scales.
I just need an HDMI/Optical switch ready for the new console.
Our PS3 stays.
PS3 online gaming.
No most is still peer to peer. Servers cost money, PSN being free meant no dedicated servers.
You still get lag killed and you still get the occasional I am a killing machine and not dieing.
I have tried 5 shooters to a reasonable amount and all are peer to peer, including some of the biggest names.
I am being sort of willingly forced into PS4 as otherwise I will get wiped out if I leave it too long. My friends are very excited and all have preorders in. Launch one game is priority.
The weekend of 30th November & 1st December will be spent on Vekta.
I am still picking up a PS4 on the 29th
Pay for servicing!
Why waste money?
Why spend £500 on a major service when you can DIY?
OK so how do I cache all the maps on an Android phone?
So I can use it without using data.
Well my company phone data is VERY expensive.
I can't get the google sat nav in Android to work off line with downloaded maps.
My previous Symbian phone did with OVI maps
2 things better now about my old phone, maps and camera
Non CD-DA = nightmare
My previous DVD player worked well with CD-DA but I got fed up with exchanging non playing CDs, I think I had three copies of one CD (to be returned to supplier), eventually found out - non CD-DA due to some data CD nonsense.
At least I cost them a few copies!
L - Liquorish Allsorts
M - Marathon
O - Opal Fruits
R - Rhubarb & Custard
I wonder who is buying them?
BTW I like milk and white chocolate, had some nice chocolate from Cornwall (Trenance) Green & Blacks is OK.
Just don't like dark chocolate - too bitter for me.
A nice quality milk chocolate
Haven't had one in a while though
BTW What exactly is candy?
Also why are Hershey things in Asda?
What is wrong with our own chocolate?
I used one at the weekend
a DVC60 in my video camera
And do you know whose fault it is?
All those idiots who bought Vhs rather than Beta.
They bought the studio to make sure any formats they supported would survive in future.
But the patent was like many of that period used to control the designs rather than extort money.
I'd like to here from CD people and also all the first (VCR Umatic) and second generation (the usual 3) video cassette system people
Nice to hear from some of these people.
More like this please.
Add the Milliband as well
But cannot remember which ones they were, I now have a shopping list for the rest.
I know what you mean
I emailed OSC a while ago to ask about a book, he replied.
Looks like you guessed.
It is not only films found on Blu Ray
Blu Ray at £40
Fungus - cordyceps
I thought it was obvious
A data one with a game on it
And WELL WORTH £40
Pay a fiver for a Blu ray when it is a bit older.
That said last 5 I bought were £5, £5, £5, £5, £40
The expensive one was full of fungus
I used Beta HiFi, I had one of the few NICAM fitted 950s, pity that the controller chip blew.
I used a Sanyo Beta HiFi to record Friday Rock show then edited to cassette for the car. One of the recordings was of a friends band.
I tended to end up with TDK when I had money otherwise whatever I could find cheap, but TDK were good.
Video tapes, nothing bettered the Sony ProX tapes, strong plastic cases, snazzy shells, great tape formulation, still work well today, played back on the same portable, pity they topped out at L500
Yes he did!!!!!!!
The current Kim, best thing for him would be a present from a special forces sniper.
With the Kims destroyed NORK will have a chance.
As to Syria - I have no idea but helping rebels will get a lot of people killed.
Better off getting a DS or a 3DS
Those screens will get wrecked
Not enough 3DS games to interest them, and that is a funny shape and too big, the screens will get wrecked.
DS folds up to protect the screens and has loads of games.
If they want more consoly games they have their Vitas
Why do I want to overlay my Freesat PVR output?
No it doesn't record TV.
And which games are better? Do they have Naughty Dog?
And what use is the camera when I want to slob out on the settee?
