Just a minor correction - you can in fact change the bokeh on photos after the fact. It did take me a while to figure out how though...

I might be wrong, but I think that maybe the plots of even the best games are not really strong enough to support a non-interactive experience like a movie. In a game they work just fine, even admirably, because you are so much more engaged with the whole thing. But just sitting there watching, and Resident Evil becomes 'Mila Jovavitch kicking things in the head' (which I'll pay for, but should probably be in some sort of speciality section).
Originally, in the immediate aftermath of Guido and Draper's confrontation on the Daily Politics show, Guido and then Iain Dale lodged Freedom of Information requests.
Whether or not these were the source of the emails I've not seen confirmed.
@AC - "I'd be even more angry if they were leaked to someone who had an axe to grind and intended to use them to get me sacked, even though I'd deleted them months ago"
Sending the emails was a breach of the civil service code, under which McPoison was employed. In any corporate environment misuse of business systems carries severe penalties, so why shouldn't it here?
Intentional or not (and I really suspect not) it makes them look very stupid and if anything should engender positive feelings towards the Polish who helped us defend our shores in the dark days of the BoB!
And here's the original image they nicked for their poster (makes a nice wallpaper):
"It is an overwhelmingly male-dominated area, though. Do you not agree? Of course women go mad under the circumstances."
Consider it revenge on your entire gender for the constant attacks on male techie sanity* with such gems as "I didn't save it and it crashed, can you get it back?" and "So why did it do that then?".
*"military intelligence" style oximoron
He should sue - I bet nowhere on the device does it say "do not submerge in water" (although it most certainly will after the case) - he should win millions. He may even force Microsoft to redesign the XBox and PSU to be fully waterproof, and damn right too. Won't somebody think of the children?
"A mutation is a copying error. Errors in a programing language lead to errors in the execution of the software. Some mutations are harmless, many are destructive or imparing. Very few are beneficial."
Now you're anthropomophising random mutations. Random mutations don't care what they are, and what they are is entirely dependent upon the conditions the organism encounters. Take sickle cell anemia - a debilitating and life-shortening condition in the developed world, but as it happens to inhibit malaria is actually an aid to survival in some parts of the world. A very intelligent design (not).
"an illegal service that rips off artists."
...as opposed to legitimate services like iTunes which rip off artists.
But then this has nothing to do with artists and everything to do with record labels desperate to claw back the huge advances paid to a minority of prima donna 'artistes'.
Re: Biker's view
I live 2 miles away from this very camera. They [there's actually two in quick succession) are on a very straight, wide bit of the A505, but right where minor country lanes cross. Visibility pulling out of these side roads isn't up to much, but you can see far enough that someone doing 50 is far enough away for you to either pull out and get out of their way, or stop. A pillock doing more than twice that will end up in the side of my car while some egit chants "now you see him, NOW you see him" like it's my fault.
This was being discussed on Jeremy Vine this lunchtime - specifically the role of "the internet" [Jeremy Vine is clearly a luddite, much like the rest of the Beeb]. As was pointed out by several callers, gatecrashing (especially of teen parties) is nothing new - word-of-mouth just means a bit more these days. Anyone stupid/naive enough to post a party invite ON A BLEEDING PUBLIC WEBSITE needs their head examining. If she'd posted flyers all over town would Jeremy Vine be wittering about "the role of paper in today's society"? Gah.
