When I crank the gain on my guitar amp and plugin the Les Paul beast, I assure you, you can damn near hear a square wave ;-) (is there a smiley for humorous indignation?)
caveat: Transistor amp of course, valves are a totally different thing, I much prefer valves distorting rather than transistors clipping.
I'm hoping that one day the Doc will regenerate into Monkey and his crew will magically morph into Pigsy, Sandy and Tripy-whats-his-name.
No more "sonic screwdriver" but a f*ck-off magic big stick and lots Dalek butt-kicking action, how's he going to call the TARDIS? - take a wild guess ;-)
Gotta go, my sides are hurting just thinking about it.
Excellent place to visit, very atmospheric, interesting and down right frightening at times. Most frightening was being told on the tour that the defences were mainly to keep the likes of you and me out not marauding Ruskies, it was expected that society would have returned to a more feudal like existence.
After visiting the bunker we went home and watched "Threads", needed a damned good drink after that lot! ;-)
Recently a couple of locals(Harlow) organised a zombie invasion/survival role playing type game based in the bunker -tickets were sold out before I managed to get any -gutted!
Exactly, and you can bet your bottom dollar that the Tax laws will not be changed because too many politicos have vested interests or are doing the same thing, or are relying on "donations" from large corps.
Wait for the excuses- "We couldn't possibly do that because it would... blah-bullshit-blah" -same as in the UK.
Just managed to get an out of (1 year) warranty work iMac repaired using Euroland law. iMac is 18 months(ish) old with no AppleCare warranty, the screen was very dark in places and needed replacing.
The dealer we purchased from had since gone bust and our preferred dealer wasn't interested if we didn't have additional AppleCare. I contacted Apple, spoke to a support chap and directed him to this link: http://www.apple.com/uk/legal/statutory-warranty/
He promptly assigned warranty repair status to the iMac serial number and told me I could go to any dealer that I preferred.
I called back our preferred dealer and quoted the serial to them, they checked it out and arranged collection for repair.
AppleCare wouldn't appear to be very good value for money anyway if Euro law provides better statutory rights...
Exactly, It is our "moral" duty to pay as little tax as possible because government (UK) is highly proficient at wasting the money collected.
There is only one thing you can rely on the (UK) government to do and that is piss tax payers money against the wall -and feel good about it while they're at it. A little less money available on the country's debit card might force them to re-evaluate their priorities and start spend our money more wisely -If that ever happened though, I think I would probably be constantly expecting to wake up in the shower at any moment ;-)
