LOL yeah right...

We would really like Microsoft to release one single edition with all features available to all user[s] instead of crippled editions,"

LOL yeah right... before we know it. winblows 8 home will include a "can only use it for 6 hours a day" feature where we will have to pay if we want to use the PC more...

The dreeded Y2k9 Bug

Been reading on the forums (I KNOW, I KNOW) but many people believe its because of the leap second to be added at the end of tonight. I can see the forum posts now...

"MS are always behind the game. they where even 9 years late for the y2k bug"

iPlayer chief pushes tiered charging for ISPs

The BBC needs to take notice of what they already have.

:( BBC can shove their "pay extra to use services you already pay for" up there (well you get the idea)

I hardly use iplayer as my PVR records all my BBC needs (which is normally only TopGear), it only get used to watch something i forgot to record.

If mr iplayer wants to talk about tiered interwebs, how about we start talking about ditching the BBC licence fee, 95% of my viewing isn't BBC, and i pay less a year for cable channels i watch, OK so we get adverts to pay for it but least i'm not forced to hand over 140 quid a year for stuff i never watch, I always have the option to drop channels i don't watch and either pay less or pick up a differnt channel in its place.

Its gonna be a said day if this gets pushed thou :(

I receive far more calls then i make on my mobile, something in the region of 10 incoming to every outgoing. This is cause i'm the I.T. guy and quite often find that i'm on the phone for an hour trying to explain to someone that they need to plug in the small round purple back in.

Because these calls are paid for by the customer and that i can deal with peps on the phone while working on other system I've been providing this telephone support for free (Well the customer has to pay his phone bill) Looks like i'll have to change this.

I think the most annoying thing will be bloody stupit BT contrators.

I get atleast one call me a week - the call always starts off nice and i try to help by telling them whats wrong there wiring which i would of fixed on the spot if it would of been legal :p but always ends up with me saying "Hang on, your the one getting paid for this job. Pay me or figure it out yourself" and now i'm gonna have to pay to tell someone who is getting paid how to do there job. Screw it i'm getting a 09 number.
