50,000 have signed up to it, now only another 80 million to convince it is a good idea.

Whilst I acknowledge my contract pays for my phone, I've never bought one and I don't lust after the latest model so this idea doesn't work for me and I doubt it does for a majority of phone users.

There is more than one way to spell or translate it, as with most Arabic. That is essentially the dutch way.

That is all well and good, but none of the articles cited under the first entry refer to it; not quite sure how those can be facts.

How is the Giff Gaff reception? I presume it piggybacks on whatever is the nearest, strongest signal, so should always be good? I'm thinking of going that way and keeping the phone I have; I don't need a new one.

This looks great, compared to Robocop 3  Cry and the TV series  Cry Cry Cry.

I doubt it will match the original two, but it doesn't look awful like the Total Recall remake does. Robocop was the first 18 film I went out of my way to watch (on video): I was 11.

Alive - Stephen Hawking would be an interesting conversation.

Would it though? Everything he would say would probably go over my head.

Yes, I wouldn't be talking science shit, it would be about chicks and Eastenders - "I miss Pat Butcher, don't you Steve?"

When did Pat leave?

Google says 2012. I wouldn't actually know these things.

If you are recording just your voice in an untreated room then I would suggest a dynamic cardioid mic like the SM58 as bloke has mentioned.

Some form of audio interface would be a good purchase, nothing fancy, just something with a combined jack/xlr input and some means of adjusting the gain.

Something like this

or

375  General / The Forum / Re: Conscription / UK National Service on: August 23, 2013, 14:45:48

And whats a community payback order for minor cannabis offences if its not national service?

Are those who are doing community payback expected to fight overseas? Or do, as the name suggests, a bit of community payback by tidying up. If you want to apply the term 'national service' to anything that benefits the country, paying tax could be seen as that, but that isn't the point of the discussion, we are discussing the recognised concept of national service/conscription.

That comes in time..

What does?

I know an Iranian ex pat who does go back very occaisionally. As a tourist, I've no idea what it would be like to go; possibly not an ideal location, but it would be good to see the origins of the modern civilised world and language (what is left that is, following war). Bring back Persia.

70% in FTE. Only 8.1% NEET.

Iran has National Service but they also have the option of buying out of it provided they meet the right criteria.

Well it didn't and has now said:

Among the schools identified was Colston's Girls' School in Bristol, which has now said it will withdraw the policy that the governing body "will not permit the promotion of homosexuality".

 

I'm not sure about how one goes about 'promoting homosexuality', surely your attraction to one sex or the other or both is how you are and isn't likely to be changed by some classes on sexual education?

Every year in the UK about 24,000 people leave the Armed Forces for "Civvy Street".

And it's apparent that some ex-servicemen find the transition hard.

It is feared as many as 1,100 of them end up sleeping rough on the streets of London every night. And according to MoD figures, 3% of prisoners - nearly 2,500 - are ex-military.

I use a mouse at work with my right hand (on windows) but use my left at home (on my mac). I'm not totally ambidextrous and still consider myself as left handed, but I can do a lot with both hands.

DV has been DV247 for years. The operating name won't have changed, the business was called White Rabbit Records before their 'collapse'. There is something rotten about that one though.

As for Chemical, there website doesn't seem to have changed in the last week and I think the name changed from Chemical Records to just Chemical some time ago.
