  3. Not had any contact with Kayo (everyone has just been busy) but I honestly can't see any reason why he would object
  4. Hey, ignoring is a bit harsh, blissfully unaware was more accurate. I have no problems moving, if kayo agrees.

  6. Shogun 2

    IMHO it's the best TW game yet. I've owned a few of them now so I know exactly what you mean however I was disappointed in Napoleon (I skipped empire was I was sill having too much fun with med2)
  7. March for the Alternatives

    TBH when it comes to gov squandering and budgets the Trident thing isn't really that big a problem, the stuff we have isn't going to last forever and the next option is rely on the french to be our deterrent? (even if right now the only traidional viable threat is the yanks) Just looking at the MOD itself, it's insanely top heavy and they busy spunking silly amounts of money on completely the wrong kit. Right now we are trying to commit to yet more bloody military actions in places like Libya without the air of an aircraft carriers (and even if we had one the navy didn't have anything to actually put on it), we have 19 surface vessels yet the royal navy has over 40 admirals costing about 7million a year in their pay alone.... Eurofighter Typhoons? the RAF wants to use something like 80 for squadrons, so we buy over 230 of them...... Gov waste? how about spending £226K on food and £83K on taxis in one month in one LOCAL area of london??? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/8365463/Death-by-a-thousand-cuts.html The only real change we can possibly make is if the majority vote at the next election is one of no confidence as right now the current system the MP's have means they have a cushty life while the rest of us get taxed to hell and pay for their sins...
  8. The Royal Wedding [NSFW]

    Yeah, that's like the 3rd or 4th version of that track I have now heard, shame he's just recyling the same songs and changing a handful of words to be topical as I actually think some of his stuff is quite funny.
  9. Steam Guard (Beta)

    I had it on when it was first enabled, however I had to turn it off when it was clear that clearence system didn't work and it would challenge my laptop EVERY time. I did submit a steam support ticket and they said it's been fixed so I will be putting it on again.
  10. epic.SIX Initial Details Announced

    To be honest, after the experience of epic2 just the fact that it is a total time sink (you really can spend hours bashing away at some of those questions) meant that it's been more productive for our group to just ignore it and concentrate on getting other stuff done. I see your point about not being able to soften it up too much but it really isn't fun, more a sort of savage entertainment for utter masochists. Frankly if pushed for time some of those questions would give mensa members a brain hemorrhage.
  11. Server backup questions

    If it's just 1 windows server you want to backup, I would look at carbonite, it's about £50/year, unlimited capacity offiste and everything is fully encrypted all the way using your own keys so iirc even they can't unencrypt it at their end.
  12. L4D2 dlc

    Day of a LAN for sure.
  13. Hard drive failure - oh joy

    F3's are random as hell when it comes to QA. I've installed quite a few now for people (I run 3 myself) and their either seem to fail quickly (I even had a DOA) or are built like a tank and go on forever. If it wasn't for the fact they are the fastest SATA drives after SSD's I wouldn't be so struck on them tbh.
  14. Android for the iphone (with dual boot!)

    Now that looks interesting
