The times or multiplication operator when used with a number greater than one produces a result which is larger rather than smaller than the original. Or perhaps "times less" is the operator, whatever that means. The article itself uses the correct "1 percent" terminology.
...in the vicinity of Leicester Square. Had never heard of the film, or of Dan Aykroyd or John Belushi. Didn't recognise Carrie Fisher out of her Leia gear. Bemused doesn't begin to describe my reaction. Emerged into the daylight not being quite sure what I had just seen but convinced of its brilliance.
Oracle's support site. I find myself having to use this abomination in order to seek out Solaris patches (which I could only find initially after placing a technical support call, answered by someone who had braved this loathsome exercise in unnecessary complexity before me).
I have a V+ box and it is a great gadget. As has been pointed out you should not have to pay more than £75. I watched the cable guy install it and it did take longer than 5 seconds - amongst other things, he had to check the signal strength on each of the three tuners. On Demand has some plus points, in particular 4oD thoughtfully strip out the adverts, but has minuses (only the last 7 days of a subset of programmes) and V+ offers the invaluable "record series" option. I don't have HD TV connected to it yet, but I have thought wistfully how nice it might be to watch Wimbledon on one.
I use BitTorrent (which admittedly the BBC is unlikely to adopt). Not all your favourite American drama series maybe out there in HD, but some of mine are, e.g. Heroes, House and CSI. And even though it is only 720p it still looks luscious compared to the hideously compressed stuff that comes out of the cable box.
The last two TVs I bought left the factory maladjusted (both for geometry and colour). My small sample may be unrepresentative, but I would not be surprised to find that if access to the engineer set-up on the sets was available one could obtain identical and satisfactory colours on both Evesham models.
