Was absorbed by a few hours at this one. Fascinating to see stuff that's hidden around us - the photos are well worth taking a look at.

Re: O2 Network Outages?

They are not "free". They are worked into the cost of the contract! ;)

Re: Microsoft office problem

I used to get annoyed by this 'running virus scan' crap on my computer when I had Norton Antivirus (2002) and opened up Word files. Try looking in the options within Norton to disable the plugin for scanning office documents - I seem to remember for mine, it was something like that. I've not had Nor...

Re: The Official Social Networking Thread

OK, so I reactivated my facebook... Out of curiousity, why?! I've never really understood the point of social networking websites, and why people are obsessed by it, to the point to which they have to update their status from their phone about whatever they're doing. Honestly, who gives a shit? Ano...

Re: Cash machine weirdness

I noticed this months ago on Natwest ones, when I pressed the Enter button when I leant on the keypad as I fumbled with my wallet to get the card out. Been around for some time apparently, I thought the staff had left the machine in some sort of special mode whilst they were filling it up or somethi...

Re: Your Listening Choices

Usually I wake up to Wogan or sometimes Moyles if I can be arsed to change the station on my clock radio. For most of the time I either listen to Radio 1 or Radio 2, occasionally dipping into the local stations around this area, which means we have Original 106, Wave 105, Power FM etc. If Sara Cox i...

Re: Digital Spy Watch News and Information Board

I usually don't post in threads like this, but browsing through DS, I couldn't help but feel a bit creeped out by what Simon wrote (in a thread on paedophiles): The solution as I see it is to ban anyone under 18 from using Facebook, MySpace and the like. I have accounts on a couple of these sites, a...

Re: VirginMedia - your experiences

Speaking of C&W, I'm about to move flat and VM claim the new place isn't serviced, yet there's a C&W coaxial hookup in the lounge. Anyone know if that necessarily means it's serviced, or whether it's some decayed relic from an old network branch that's long dead? I would have thought you'd be able ...
