Re: OK here...for now?

Removing kb3201845 worked for me, on VirginMedia.

Also having the top percentile for Neanderthal DNA I can confirm the depressive and addictive traits- which are de riguer in IT aren't they?

Attack of the Digital People: The BBC goes fully Bong

Now really!

At first look the Microbit looks a bit simple, like an Arduino. But there's a lot more- a 32bit ARM and bluetooth for over the air programming. And of course lots of blinkenlights. This is even cheaper than the board-du-jour the ESP8266. 5000 trainers will be needed to spread the gospel, Raspberry PI style,and the BBC is well suited to pull all this together.

Good review, thanks. But what about some Panto reviews? Preferably trad, pre-IT, with real dames.

No Amstrad PDA600? Wasn't that the first PDA? It was sadly ignored because it was British and suspiciously cheap.

Great article though I found that the universities there did have a major input on product development, unlike the UK.

Is there a AGW angle here please? Is Global Warming responsible for UNNATURAL ANTIBODY ACTIVITY?

Re: Bollocks

It was fun while it lasted, but all good things, as in TV series, do get silly before they expire. I am waiting for Richard Black or Al Gore to be abducted by aliens.

"What unfeasible cosmic violence - could possibly have generated so vast an outpouring of energy". Yes indeed and it's not even Friday.

Glacially slow Peer Review

Science magazine state they received the paper in January. No Tweets from Richard Black at the BBC yet.

Opera works now

There is still a religious fervour about Opera but the browser does now work for this ex-Firefox user of several years. I just could not get on with FF4 or FF5. Even ALT-tooltips work now with the right Opera add-on but there is no Weatherfox yet. The only problem is importing tabs & bookmarks- they are alphabetised so you need to manually reorder them.

In Soil We Trust

Rather than "in God we trust" on dollar notes, "in Soil We Trust" is appropriate for a recent Slow Money currency. Bitcoin has little trust built into it but will springboard underground local currencies that may well facilitate exchange of substances but especially trading local food. Hard currencies are inherently unstable but local fluffy currencies can help build communities.

The Lewes Pound In Your Pocket

Thanks to Harold Wilson, devaluation and the bankers, the pound in your pocket is not what it was. Alternative currencies like the Lewes pound, the Bavarian Chiemgauer, festival currencies and loyalty points will complement cash. Sooner or later, with help from Google & Facebook they will become electronic and might well work.

Beenz II

Beenz are back. The local micropayments idea is suitable for these times as a way of linking local business to a local bank or even currency. The paypal link however is ominous.

Warmists rejoice

Then how come the BBC's Richard Black is claiming the Sun's influence has been overestimated?

WTF?

Hysteria

I have both a 4 & a 3G and they perform fine in low signal areas despite holding them incorrectly. But charging £25 for the official solution is a cheek when there is even prettier protection on ebay for £2.
