If you know where I can get a cheap licensed copy of 2003, or a very cheap media-only kit, incidentally, I'm all ears. Copies seem to be thin on the ground these days. We've got about 1000 in work though I have no idea how many of them are not on a machine at the moment and also how much they are. ...

You tried looking for a copy of Office 2003? IMO far better than 2007 for the simple fact that 2k7 saves files in a way that is only compatible with other 2k7 users. ok, I know you can tell it to save the file in 2k3 format but you have to actually go in and change teh settings when you save it - pa...

Jets you might be right that those people have done all those but considering I don't know I would guess is a fair indication that a large percentage of the british population don't know as I doubt too many people follow cyclng/ swimming that well.

To be honest it sounds like a latency issue rather than a download issue. Games do't really need fast download speeds so much as a fast response time. This might sound confusing but some fast broadband connections have slow response times before the fast download occurs. The best example (and most e...

I'm really enjoying Heroes this season unlike most people here :) I actually think the whole season will turn out to be one giant plot by Peter to stop the future from happening. My theory is after he gained Sylers powers he created the giant complex plan and then possibly erased his memory (thanks ...

To be honest the way the UK and the US are governed are different which probably leads to the fact it is harder to become a pime minister. The US President is not the same as the UK Prime Minister and in terms of actual power is probably closer to the Monarch. The power to make laws, change taxes et...

Rebirth of the Soviet Union

With all the news over the last few days about Obama I find it quite disturbing that almost nothing has been made in the news about Russia heading back towards it's Soviet Union ways. For me the first step was Putin creating the job role of Prime Minister for this term. In Russia a leader is only al...

At the end of the day the people who listen to Russel Brand know the sort of humour he does and weren't offended. This can clearly be seen by the fact only two people complained and that was about the language. Now the 30,000 who complained really should be ignored. They didn't watch the show and th...

I generally feel if you don't vote then you have no right to complain about the candidates. If you feel so strongly that none of them suit you then go down and spoil your ballot. That way you have shown that you want to exercise your right to vote yet haven't voted for anyone. Personally I think the...

I have tended to find reading the Diskworld books they often get better the more you read them as I try to read them all in order about once a year and I'm always finding new jokes. Quite often these are small references to characters that are later expanded on in later books so the comment seems in...
