Not bad at all for a 10Mb connection at peak time.....

#3 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Reading list » 2010-06-21 08:23:48

I have skirmishes with Linux Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition by Paul Sheer from time to time.
And for a little light relief the Stieg Larsson trilogy starting with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

#4 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Minister for Digital Britain - IP address » 2010-04-19 10:23:08

It seems to me there has been something odd about this "Digital Economy Bill" right from the start.
We have a Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, with a very chequered history,currently not elected but appointed,who had a nice free holiday last summer on a yacht owned by a record company owner and suddenly,a few days after his return,this Bill appeared......
What a coincidence!

I'm Windows 98.
The bit about poor memory seems horribly accurate....I forgot to copy the result to post it here.....

The time difference is a problem...if anything interesting has happened its been all over the TV & radio news several times before the highlights show airs.
If sleeping was an Olympic sport I'd have more medals than Steve Redgrave.....

#7 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » what annoying song do you have stuck in your head? » 2010-02-10 08:34:08

All is quiet and peaceful in my head at the moment,but a few months back Bryan Adams and Tina Turner singing It's Only Love got stuck in there for about 7 hours...

#8 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Why that Avatar of yours? » 2010-02-10 08:30:43

The one I wanted to use,a black and white close-up photo of Oscar my cat's face,was too big.
I found this one on a free avatar site and tweaked it in GIMP

#12 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Ubuntu 10.04 - Lucid Lynx » 2010-01-29 10:31:08

#13 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What do you use your netbook for? » 2010-01-28 16:17:16

I have a Dell mini 9.
Since this region had its analogue TV signal switched off,I've been using it to watch TV in bed,streaming BBC iPlayer or 4OD.
I also use it for reading online instructions when I need to fix one of my other machines.
If I need to travel anywhere(something I avoid if at all possible)I'll preload it with podcasts and load it,its earphones and my mobile broadband dongle into my bag.

I'm thinking members of my own family would look good as three-toed sloths or Komodo dragons......

#16 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » superbowl!!!! » 2010-01-26 09:15:39

A few years back there was decent coverage of NFL on Channel 5 (free to air channel in UK) but this year it has all but disappeared from our screens.
Don't know yet if Superbowl will be broadcast here.
