  1. err because if you don't, you won't be able to watch telly once they've switched off the analogue signal.
  2. What Windows Vista was supposed to be may be here at last. Several leaked versions have been doing the rounds on the torrents for the last few weeks but nobody really knows whether they're the final Beta releases. The official Beta release from Microsoft may be out by the end of this week. Anyone tried it yet?
  3. A gritter woke me up this morning at 6:10 going past my house as I slept with my eyes open. Bloody orange lights.
  4. Only four posts in a thread about qualifications and each one has an error. I'm glad I didn't bother with 'further education'.
  5. I had an MT guy at work a few weeks ago boasting about their new services.. Fixed IPs etc. I couldn't help but think hmm competing with WiManx are we? Prices are still way above wimanx's.
  6. Ooh, that's seven years of bad luck for you. ps. A mirror is just sprayed glass so see above posts for a new one.
  7. In what way? Yes they are expensive. So why pay the extra? What do you get for your extra expense? To me a computer of any kind is about what it does, not what it looks like and this IMO is why Macs have become so popular - for all the wrong reasons. Does it need to be a work of art? It's the inside of a computer at the end of the day. Do you show the inside of your Mac to your house guests and your friends? Do drives need to slot in and out? How often does anyone realistically replace a drive? As for the RAM, why do you need 8 GB? People complain about Vista needing 1 GB and XP will run fine on 512 MB. What does Applecare do other than charge you a fee for bits you could pick up for next to nothing if you had a PC? I agree with you here. The trouble is there's so much software available for a PC people just install any old shite regardless of whether it's any good, which sooner or later, will fuck it up.
  8. Off topic but I think MoBeats is done with this thread now anyway: Apart from the reduced risks of Viruses or whatever, could someone please explain what people prefer about a Mac to Windows? I don't get it. Is it just to be different or is there a good reason to use one?
  9. I hate to say it but I doubt you'll find one product alone that can deal with multiple infections. The only sure way to get rid of them is to rebuild your PC from scratch but is a complete pain in the arse. Depending on what you use your PC for it might not be necessary. Just don't do any internet banking or anything similiar. I'd stay away from anything which needs your password - even your email. How did these things get on your laptop in the first place? They don't get there by themselves. I'd recommend Kaspersky software but haven't tried any others recently which may be better.
  10. Maybe the DOT should start recording some of their webcams up there. It might help in a situation like this where they want to trace vehicles. There's another camera at the Douglas end of the montain mile which the public don't have access to. With a decend zoom lens it could read number plates.
  11. Do yourself a favour. Pass your driving test, buy yourself a car and never have to worry about it again. Problem solved.
  12. You must be new to Sky TV. There are bullshit American programs on like this all too often. They're interesting at first but you'll soon get bored with them. If it was a British made program I might be interested as it may have some credibilty. Saying that, I'm watching it anyway as I haven't watched one for a few years.
  13. If it had gone back years in time then the BIOS/CMOS battery must need replacing.
  14. Is this high enough to cause flooding in low lying areas?
  15. Went shopping today and was provided with half sized shopping bags. What that all about? I'll only use twice as many.
  16. Setanta working fine here. Boxing preview at the moment.
  17. Did you to post it back in the prepaid envelope to PO Box 53, Nigeria? Along with your bank, credit card details, date of birth and mother's mainden name?
  18. £33 is cheap Yes you will be charged for texting Dubai. Local texts are free but not worldwide. You've fallen for Manx Telecom's marketing bollox. Never mind eh - you won't do it again.
  19. This is nothing to with me whatsoever. Just an excuse to post a music video on MF: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DdqFxi4bKU Not porn but don't watch it in front of your Mum. Almost more Hypnotizing than WilDDog's boobs. Enjoy...
  20. So what is the average sea temperature here now? Is it enough to run a huge Ground Sea Source heat pump to feed the Island? This would give us warmth and cool the sea at the same time to shut the global warming brigade up.
  21. Texting!!!! Are there folk out there who drive and text? Anyone who does that should be banned from driving for at least 12 months (prefer 2 years) and made to take the driving test again. They have to be crazy and totally irresponsible. How can you enter text or read text and drive with your eyes on the road???? There's loads of people doing it. You can spot them - head slightly lowered, eyes facing down towards the steering wheel. I regularly spot half a dozen every day. me too. Maybe they're just tying their shoe laces?
