Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I doubt ECML will bother with a complete new colour scheme, it will be enough to remove the national express lettering and grey lines, slap the new logo on the white strip of the GNER blue trains. If it's govt run, they won't bother spending more than they have to will they?

Re: The 'I just don't get it' thread

Re: Generic vacuum cleaner recommendation

I thought the Argos Value vac was good, but only the first couple of times I used it. I now hate the thing as it's cumbersome and takes several attempts to pick up stuff. When I can afford it, I'm getting a Henry again after having one in my old student house. They really can't be beat for value for...

Re: Conficker worm

Wish I had a botnet, seems like a more effective way of making many PCs do what they're told than fathoming out why I can't get group policies to stick on the company LAN :(

Re: Internet Explorer 8 (final) is out

If your IE8 is running slow and you have Spybot installed, try de-immunizing and disabling the SDHelper wotsit, as there's some sort of conflict with them. I did this on both an XP and a Vista pc and it works a treat.
