Re: Any news on whether the BBC pays their side of the bargain?

I think you've missed the point of the ruling, which effectively has made her an employee regardless of the use of a PSC. The BBC should now be liable for at least the Employer's NI contribution.

Re: I just replaced the HDD in my laptop with...

This has also been my experience, hybrid drives sound like a good idea on paper but the flash caching isn't really big enough to provide any noticeable benefit. With an SSD it's hard to argue that there's a performance increase but with hybrid not so much.

I'll take the sandtrooper in white: Meet the rebel scum making Star Wars armour sets for a living

Asylum_visitor

Yeah, this was a news to me too. Although I guess it's similar to how Vader's helmet and armour changed between the 3 original films. It must be very small changes though because I have definitely never noticed. A good excuse to watch them again :)

Maybe they should resurrect the wonder that was Active Desktop in Windows ME, they could use that for notifying us about new OS upgrades. Providing the new OS was called Active Desktop Recovery obvs ;)
