but the "among my relatives, back in the old days, the preferred method of acceptance of, say, a slice of delicious chocolate cake was to mumble "I don't mind" in a barely audible monotone. I am still not really comfortable giving an acknowledgement any warmer than this." rings true. When asked if I want a cup of tea (or a beer) I reply, "if you like".
Oh how I remember sticking millions of those new-fangled "Thatchers"* in this as an 11 year old on holiday. Only made it to the exhaust port one time in ten. Even today's HD games didn't have that Wow! factor. Must be more with being 11 than how good it was. Back to Elite on the Electron when I got home.
The BBC is a PUBLIC service, paid for by a licence fee* - not a god** given right. It is not ITV. The fact X gets more viewers/listeners than Y does not mean the BBC should disregard Y. I have never listened to Radio 3. Since when did you become the sole arbitrator of democracy and decry which services are relegated to DAB alone? Buy a DAB radio for your car, no one is stopping you.
The BBC is also not a democracy. ITV is.. if no one watches then the programme is cancelled. Having said that the BBC should be embracing non proprietary systems or not bothering at all. The trouble is OSS has no DRM so they really should have thought about it all before they opened the can of worms.
*I do not pay a licence fee because I am quite happy to wait a few hours and watch/listen for free until they sort themselves/the law out.
** may not actually exist
FIFA! Why play a game on a console/PC that you can play in the park? (alright I except that dog mess can be an issue). I quit at FIFA 97 when it cheated me out of a world cup with a Edgar Davids bycicle kick from the centre circle which flew in to the top corner in injury time.
