Do they have any reaons to worry about their health?

Or is it just brainless NIMBYism?

Battlestar Galactica prequel shuns space, spaceships

Er this isn't news

Nor is it 'killing battlestar'.

Caprica - the name of the new series (see it's new, it's not Battlestar Galactica, it's not hard kids) is a spin off show set before the war - it will plot the build up to the first cylon war in fact - I can't think of anything better to follow the new Battlestar with than this - it sounds fantastic and I'll be down for as many releases as they want to push on me :)

Caprica was announced about 2 years ago now, with the same facts and figures in this press release, as I say - it's not news ;)

Ah it's so easy to hate veggies isn't it? I wonder why?

"Not even the most retarded hippie would suggest that you could live healthily on just wheat alone. Strike that, they would. But no-one with an ounce of sense would say it."

Funny, I've been veggie for ten years and I do alright, I'm 6,7 I go to the gym 4 times a week and I'm one hell of a lot healthier than you - also I don't needlessly murder animals for no other reason than 'they taste nice'.

You might not be concerned about your carbon footprint but mine is one third yours due to a) not having a car b) not eating meat.

We'll all be veggie in fifty years like it or not - there just won't be the room to keep making it . . . . .

No doubt these arguments won't make a sliver of difference to your entrenched views - fine. But you'll all end up thinking this way like it or not, it's only maths. 6 Billion and counting in fact.

Isn't this a game?

The game (that is almost finished but just lost it's publisher) is supposed to be GB3 - it has the original cast in it and was scripted by Ramis etc. as far as I know - I'd rather have the game I think!

Apple swipes £121 for 'free' MobileMe trial

The Iphone 3G and Mobile me launch ...

Has been an absolute cluster fuck.

Apart from getting the phone going on day one, I have been plagued by software crashes, a mobile me account that won't push from my phone (but will from the desktop) buggy app software, a keyboard that only reacts (literally) 4 seconds after I press it when I'm sending a text, random fast forwarding tracks, a shocking battery life, BlueTooth that won't let me send or receive files (or sync) a Mobile Me website I can't log into, and now charges for a service I was supposed to be 'trialling'.

I only just swapped to Mac - I was lead to believe they were better than this.

eBay UK pimps users' privacy for targeted ads

Hmm it seems the same to me...

... but that may have something to do with Add Block Pro being installed on my FF3 - nevermind ebay, better luck next time.

The sooner someone moves in to replace these clowns the better, ebay started with the little people selling 2nd hand, and there they should have stayed.

Now to square it with the GF :( . . . . . .

I had problems at half nine...

But I seemed to get everything sorted out ok in the end, I got an order number certainly even if they did charge me £100 holding deposit because I moved recently....

Daft buggers.

BBC deploys the Tw*t-O-Tron

Heart

Maybe they need a proper comments system?

Terrifyingly - I'd recommend Slash Dot's over the BBC's, recommendations and mark-downs would give us a far better system rather than the Beeb's that just gives peoples votes to the first ten to have any weight behind them.

This leads to the top comments being violently opposed with absolutely no middle ground.

Oh I have been comment stuffing with the Twat-O-Tron for weeks now, maybe the Beeb will wake up and sort the bugger out?

Angry? Try the Tw*t-O-Tron

Oh yes and..

I'm hoping if I fill HYS up with enough fake crap they might consider a proper system. Like Slashdot.

shit, the world has gone mad if I am recommending the Slashdot system as preferable....

I'bve been using this to fill the real HYS

and have happily had several of my comments approved despite not having a real spitting frothing racist to type them with.

World Government?

Sounds fantastic - bring it on. Seriously, I can't think of anything better than the EU being a stepping stone to secular world state.

Beats all this fannying about we do now, wasting time, resources and people on duplicate projects.

You sir, are a fool and I feel you should go stick your head in a bucket, as opposed to under the sand where it is now.

Star Trek XI teaser trailer beams onto web

All else aside....

There's one very good reason for fans to be optimistic - they have stuck with the original design or the Enterprise, the Pre re-fit constitution class (frankly an ugly ship!) when they could have gone all over the place.

I'll go see it in the cinema regardless ;)

So now I might be able to get my HD SF?

All I want for Christmas is Battlestar Galactica and the new scans of the original Star Trek on HD, unfortunately Santa bought me a PS3.

Portable computers not phones

Convergence has happened my friend, not very many people want 'just a phone' and if you want to go out and buy one you can.

Just like you could live in a cave if you wanted to.

Or use a horse and cart.

Or send a telegram.

2031 - a little late?

What a terrible waste we have made of the opportunities offered us by the early space race, we should be out amongst the stars now instead we've wasted trillions and killed millions in wars.

Why don't I have my flying car?

Why can't I retire on the moon yet?

DVD releases

after 6 months not the current 7.5? Well well well, that is awfully generous of them.

I wonder how they'll be able to pick up on the new encypted torrent standards in development?

Halo 3 UK launch fails to fire

Tetsugaku-San

Could it be that it's just massively over rated?

Because Halo 1,2 and 3 are massively outclassed by dozens of other titles, this year alone Bioshock and Team fortress 2 are known to be far better titles than Halo3.

I can't see the fuss over a vapid, oversimplified FPS that you have to be handicapped to play (by using a controller - not a mouse and keyboard)

Ho hum , as usual the news of the death of gaming on the PC is premature.

A staggering bargain....
