  1. Spotted this on the cycling forum, if you've got a bike and a sec fill it in, might lead to more facilities:

    Route 66

    Was never there as I remember? It was first in the Galaxy next to bushies, and then where McFarlanes is now.

    Old Driftwood/Sanctuary on victoria road. MF burger night anyone? I'm sure CB will give us a discount!
  4. Declan - this has been an excellent thread, don't turn it another of your bickerfests. Don't you think you're expecting a bit much from councillors? They are just normal blokes who could be bothered to stand, most of the seats were uncontested iirc? Thanks Albert, not really thought about them editing letters. Piss poor to do so and change the content in the way that's being suggested. Shit medium for getting your point across anyway, who reads the letters page of the local papers?
  5. Think there's a lot of really shit cctv around Douglas. I was robbed in the strand centre right under a camera, and the image was so shit it was useless. The police of course know how bad it is and tried to get some images from the privately owned in store cameras which are of good quality, but I was in the general area. Don't mind CCTV myself as long as it's limited to public areas where it's very clear you're being observed and it's use is justified. It's for stopping crime, and supporting prosecutions, not for anything else.
  6. Local papers editing letters for publication is well out of order. Is this a common practice? Have you taken it up with them?
  7. Guess it depends who they're comparing with. We certainly compare favorably with Dublin, Jersey, Guernsey, BVI, Bermuda and Caymans, which are all still pretty expensive and slow for internet access.
  8. Popularity? A local shopowners going to be known by the voters, where a manager at a bank dealing with offshore clients isn't ever going to get any kind of local exposure. Also, who'd want to do it? Last thing I'd want to do.
  9. Spanna and I have been far too loved up lately, so to get things back in order: 1: Gears of War 2 2: FIFA 09 3: Fallout 3 4: LittleBigPlanet http://www.chart-track.co.uk/index.jsp?c=p...p&ct=110015
  10. Looking forward to trying it, glad it's not shit. Really want to make the most of fallout3 before getting gears, and left4deads out next week!
  11. What do you propose, we import our politicians?

    Too Pc?

    The BBC's reaction (or over-reaction) is the PC part, in my view.
  13. Says someone who's clearly familiar with sock puppeting! I count at least three people in this thread who think what they're posting is inflammatory enough to switch identities, lets make sure we don't put the forum owners at risk eh?
  14. Typical politician, leaving before anyone replies to what he's said! In retrospect, do you think you were all a bit hasty in joining a political party that was apparently so badly run?
  15. Which happens in practically every country. You need a visa to work in the USA, and it has to be renewed or you have to leave.

    Too Pc?

    A bbc presenter phoned a taxi company and asked, off air, for a white, preferably female driver to collect her 14 year old daughter. She was sacked from her job. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/343...ughter-out.html Was she being racist? Or was she just protecting her daughter? That protection was mis-judged, but is that the same as being racist? How come asking for a woman wasn't stated being discriminatory but asking for a white driver is? Or on the other hand you could say she's not only being racist, but she's potentially raising a racist too, but did she despite that deserve the sacking? Do her off air dealings with a taxi company justify the BBC's action? I'm of the opinion that she was certainly wrong, misguided and someone should set her straight, but a sacking is a step too far.
  17. I'm a bit the same, plays a lot like World In Conflict on the pc, pretty simple, moving units around in a sort of rock paper scissors style attack system. Liked the voice thing, worked very well for me, but not sure it's worth full price based on that. Like to see that in other games though, be great for a game like Overlord, lazing back on the sofa ordering my minions about. Just like Manxforums, but in game form!
  18. I think you're right, but it would still raise spending which has other knock on benefits, particularly in an environment where spending is falling rapidly.
  19. The Maldives(pop 300,000) are so concerned about climate change destroying their home with rising sea levels that they've started a fund to buy a new home in the future. The Maldives is only 2.4 meters from sea level at it's highest point, so you can understand their concern. http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2008...#history-byline We should flog em the calf of man! It's loads more than 2.4 meters tall. The weathers a bit pants compared to their tropical islands, but I'm sure they'd get used to it. We could even through in the sound Caf as a sweetener, be nice to have it re-done with a tropical theme.

    Fallout 3

    Are you on a legit version? I've heard some of the warez releases have had problems, and have released patch fixes. I've not had a single crash with the game. If you are on a legit version, you might want to try the reloaded warez release, in case it's the safedisk causing the crashes (if often is). Not condoning piracy blah blah, but sometimes the releases work better. I bought spore, and its safedisk DRM wouldn't work on my computer, so I had to download a dodgy copy just to install the damn game. Daft.
  21. Found the dogs really annoying when you're on the receiving end. The vehicles are pointless too. Nowhere near as good as cod4 for me.

    Red Alert 3

    Gave it a quick go, but wasn't really taken for the reasons you said. I think I've been spoiled a bit by Supreme Commander in that other rts's seem very limiting now.
