  1. Got it too, obviously spam, what a sad little soul
  2. I think the UK are, perhaps, concerned about Vista: UK holds Microsoft security talks Seems Microsoft probably told 'em to take a run and jump After the British government putting through all the new laws, and allowing different types of evidence in court, the prosecution attempts might be hampered by encryption. Government's ultimate goal is, supposedly, the protection of its citizens but IMO this is going too far. Yes we do need to a certain amount of 'protection', in order for a society to function, but this should not encroach upon one's right for privacy and freedoms.
  3. It's a very complex issue Roco. One aspect of human nature is an inability to be fully satisfied, this is an aspect of humans which enable us to advance and innovate. Unfortunately if this is not channelled in a positive direction the outcome, in this instance, is crime. In part there has been a failure of both the individual and society to provide opportunitites for those who only see crime as an option.

  5. Don't forget the eye and breathing holes, plus a pen to draw a face on 'em. Plus the cheap bottle of whiskey that came with the paper bags, to drink after the heated moment

  7. Looking at that story I think George Orwell knew something for sure !! Best bit is the anonymous e-mail to 'shop' law-breakers, beware Big Brother is watching Wonder what the legal issues are with this type of broadcast, especially for minors
  8. I use two programs which remove the digital rights that wma keeps, whilst ensuring very good quality IMO. The first converts to WMA or Audio Zip and is called CDex Version 1.51 available for free from link The second converts from WMA to mp3 format it is called WinLAME from the help file: winLAME is an encoder for several audio formats, including mp3 (MPEG Layer 3), Ogg Vorbis and more. winLAME lets you set up the encoding process with an easy-to-use wizard-style user interface. winLAME supports many input audio formats, and uses the LAME mp3 encoding library for encodi
  9. Hose-pipe ban here, so no watering allowed. Seems old Britania is running out of water too.
  10. I think the problem resides with the realtively short amount of time science has been 'studying' the earth. The computer simulations they use are generally flawed, and therefore their theories are usually unsound. In addition scientist propose theories, and that is all they are, in the hope this will create additional research - whilst justifying the commercial sponsorship of their own studies. It is now thought that more mature trees use up oxygen link. However this does not take into account the many vines, fungi etc that live off them. I think it will take mankind many thou
