Ofcom cracks down on London pirates

Dave Burns

This made me laugh!

"Apparently, stations are also used to communicate with drug dealers, by playing specific songs to indicate shipments, and to fund the drug trade."

I work closely with a pirate radio station and this sort of thing does NOT happen, we reguarly play anti-gun/knife/drink-driving adverts and all the djs pay a small fee to play on the station. We also run a no drinking or smoking policy in the studio. We dont make any money from the station we only cover costs and we do this because there is a lack of radio stations around that play music the youth culture want to listen to. If we did make any money from it I would probably spend it on shipping drugs into the country via my columbian mansion where I live with my 17 whores.

I think im a little more disappointed seeing as the first major time I have off from work and I cant play Call of Duty 4.. already phoned in to them and complained about this and the 100mp offer for 300 in HD and im having my marketplace points refunded to me and they are sending me several games for free :)

Microsoft spoils Christmas with Xbox 360 locking feature

Paris Hilton


Is the idea good? possibly... only for the parents that are clued up about the update though, but saying that if the parents cant control the usage without the lock, why even bother?

I remember once when I was a kid my mum removed every fuse from every plug in my room! lost many hourse of my life to the NES and the mega drive so I cant blame her!

I'm just really concerned about myself arriving home VERY drunk at night and messing with the settings and accidentally locking myself out of my console.

Paris angle?

Reminds me of...

A long long time ago I was seeing a bit of an odd girl, got bored real quick and just blanked her calls... a week later my number was in the local rag under an advert "PS2 with 15 games, 2 control pads, 2 mem cards for £30" My phone didnt stop for 2 weeks. After that I changed my number and stayed away from strange south london girls.

"In the city of York it is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow (2 per cent)"

HR Droid

The HR Droid should of been hit by the car in true BOFH fashion, I hope the next episode includes the fate of the HR Droid, I HATE them pricks :)

Props to the pub interviews tho, tried it myself once and everyone ended up getting too smashed and discussed the finer points of Stella.

California teen offers GPS challenge to speeding rap

Dave Burns

RE: This just happened in the UK too

I read about that story too. If enough speeding tickets get reversed in this country I can see the speed guns being a thing of the past, but what can we look forward too? More gatso's?

"Revenge, drugs, assisted suicide, et cetera. I will do anything. For more details and rates, go to the web site or email me," according to officials.

I suppose this guy has a few loose screws, maybe he was also one of the Britney album pirates?

Paris angle anyone?

Paris Hilton

Something odd about this..

I don't think anyone would download her music illegally and admit too it its pretty dry and a true pirate would be downloading stuff worthy of the bandwidth. Wheres the Paris angle on this story?

BBFC = Mini Hitlers?

Why not just create a new age certificate? 21+? And if parents are going to buy it for their kids then just let em! who cares? I dont.. It not as if my next door neighbours 6yr old is going to wield a chainsaw in the playground everytime someone says 'stupid head' to him.
