  1. Should I download the homebrew channel?

    I have HBC running nicely on my Japanese wii. It means I can play UK games without any fuss at all. It doesn't affect me in any other way - I can still go on the shop chanel etc, but I can also play games in English. Nintendo Japan aren't really into English-language options "this is a Japanese system for Japanese people..." I recommend the HBC.
  2. The New World

    My Nokia did that in 2005. Haven't seen much video calling going on in Japan, don't see the point really.
  3. Taxes

    £1600 per year , about £30 per week. Do you have an education? Paid for by taxes. Do you get rubbish removed from your street? Paid for by taxes. Have you ever been treated for an illness or disease? Paid for by taxes. Do you live in a relatively safe country, where you are allowed to pursue your own goals? Paid for by taxes. Do your relatives get looked after if they are sick? Paid for by taxes. Would you be able to survive if you were suddely struck ill and unable to work? Paid for by taxes. You are entitled to a fair bit. Black people don't get extra money for being black. Women don't get extra money for being women. Anyone who thinks that single, white males in Britain are an oppressed, voiceless underclass is wrong. At best.
  4. Ubiquity

    Anyone else having trouble with the email command? I can't get it to recognise the 'to contact' field. Do I need to tell it where my contacts are?
  5. Post your desktop (56k time to Panic!)

    My desktop. I'm using Rocket dock at the top for my minimised windows and object dock at the bottom for all other dock functions. I like it. It's pretty. I need to remove some icons though.
  6. Alternative way to check my bank balance?

    I'm guessing Natwest online doesn't work for that kind of account...?
  7. First film you saw at the cinema?

    We used to go to a cinema near us, it was pretty small. We used to be the only ones in there (other than the owner). It was pretty cool. Until the owner was discovered to be a serial killer. (http://www.rhyljournal.co.uk/news/Serial-killer-told-he-will.4197910.jp)
  8. How was your day?

    Ponyo Ponyo Ponyo sakana no ko... Did it have subs in the cinema ( I realise it probably wouldn't)? How good is your Japanese?
  9. Doctor Who

    cheers for posting that.interesting little snippet.
  10. House M.D is Back - Season 4

    Has the last ep not been shown yet? It is fantastic.
  11. Akihabara Stabbing

    yeah, both
  12. RANT: Bastard car parking fines

    Yeah, was going to chime in and say the burden of proof lies with them, and that if they are a private company, fuck that.
  13. I got offered a job too!

    WHAT!!!? That place had the best Sunday lunches in the whole of Nottingham. Sunday afternoons were always spent recovering from them. For £6!!!!!!! The Victoria is the one near the railway station will the huge collection of whiskies? I saw two dogs fighting in there once, and may have stolen something. The white lion was close to our house for the footy. And I sang Karaoke in there once, The Darkness - I Believe in a Thing Called Love. Mid day, wearing a deerstalker and stroking my nipples. I hope co-op is still there. Genuinely gutted about The Cow.
  14. The Apprentice

    Lee was a berk. A likeable berk. I'm embarrassed to say that I started to fancy Clair a little bit towards the end. Shock! Horror! Glad it's over, so I can stop.
