Governator revives anti-violent video game crusade


@ summer glau

first off big fan of yours sorry to see your show cancelled AGAIN :)

second that point is fine but only as long as it gose the only 2 problems I see with a law as you describes

1. if the law makes perents who buy a 18 rated game for there kids a crimal

2. perents who do not understand the law and let there kids play the games and then kick up a fuss in the papers and the we end up witrh violent games being banned completely (cos the papers relay rule the country


it is not computer games falt

it is fun to shoot pepol

Another 0.03% of Blighty goes wind powered


@ more pepol


nuke plants are on all the time so they produce what they say wind are on when the wind blows and so they prduce a fraction of what they say

@Anonymous Coward

yes a solar cell on every roof in the country would produce more than a nuke plant but 1 it will cost much more and 2 I am not going to put one on my roof till the gov diliver it to me

@Anonymous Coward

fresh water is not a problem if we have power

sarah is there a way we can stop so menyt pepol posting ac it is getting confusing to reply to them

Thumb Up

@El -Reg as ever with its bunkum anti wind stories.

I have a true story of a office site near a wind farm and every sunny day in the after noon they had to shut the wind farm down as the sun trough the spinning blades caused migraines to the pepol in the office so they are not as free from environmental impact as you calm


@ pepol

@ AJ Stiles

wind power is not the only way of getting no fosile free energy there is sola bio mass wave hydro and nuclear just cos our gove seames to think wind is the best/only way dose not mean we all do


not ever hoiuse can use wood or pete (most eco pepol would prefer we did not use pete or chop trees at all) and burinign rubish is better done at proper incinrators (less local polution) and there for genrates electricity not local heat and yes we have less power intencive devices than in 2001 but we have moire of them I doute there is much change in household electricty usiges

Home Office to keep innocent DNA samples


@Simon Miles

I would be happy to be on a data base of "innocent" pepol but that is not what this data base is it is a "criminal data base"

if the government want a data base of everybody to help solve crimes (for example by telling them everybody who was in a certain taxi) then let them ask for that in there manifesto take that to the houses of parliament and get it enacted.

what they asked for was a database of criminalises to help prevent reofending and they have expanded it to "everybody we even think might have committed a crime" even if the police are open and honest and only use it as they say then this is not a good thing

@Greg Fleming

ok sorry I mis phrased what I was saying

"Errrrr .... nooooooo. It does not. It keeps track of the file type by the associated flag that the FS assigns to it when it is created. The file type is NOT in the header (text files have no 'header' for example) yet the OS knows what it is by keeping track of the app that created it or the permissions that are assigned to it by the user."

so a file is created and flaged as a file type (for this instance a jpg) how is that diffrent that a file extention (as used in there original system NOT as used in windows) except that is is a hidden flag not a visible extension I am sure if linux was AS widely used as windows there would be tricks to get round this type of thing


@Greg Fleming

all linux dose is hide the file extension in the file header rather than in the open and when the dos oppertaing system was first developed anybody who could get to see the file extentions knew what they meant. of linux was as popular as windows I am sure there would be similar problems with it's way of doing this as we find with dos/windows
