Re: Superconductor

Perhaps it's the graphene or perhaps it was supposed to read supercapacitor.

Pretty super either way.

Re: Best outcome.

I agree but then my morals don't include allowing people accused of sex crimes to skip bail and swan off to South America.

Re: Best outcome.

WTF! Really so the UK tries to apply the rule of law (UK and European) and somehow this is considered morally wrong and some how embarrassing. To you maybe the rest of us want to see Assange face the serious accusations made against him.

Real Problem

The Onkyo CS-545's real problem is the Denon M38DAB can't see many of these getting sold.

16 & 17yr olds + C++ =

Nobody wanting to continue with their CompSci A level let alone a degree.

Would you rather do some weak subject like geography or take on C, C++ at A level? While you want to spend most your time chasing skirt.

You know the kid who gets the straight A's in geography, business and media studies will get into a better uni and still be able to do a CompSci course?

I Like

Got this phone for free off O2 via Mobiles.co.uk and they were kind enough to send me a cheque for £210 24 month contract mind but I had my previous 6300 for 3 years so no problem for me.

Does all the basics well (calling and sms), photos I agree are weak (up jog is still the shortcut). Browsing Internet is not really a good idea but I can get to the footy or cricket scores via a bookmark in seconds so can't really complain.

What else do you really need?
