Re: Anybody else on here having these problems?

I have an account with Digital Spy General Discussion but I found myself logged out. I sent a password request email to them and they'd send me one back and it hasn't arrived. I know it's not the computer so it's propably their server having problems or it's probably Talktalk. Anybody got any ideas...

True.
I happen to like Una Paloma Blanca :shock: (its very suspicious that the accusation against Johnathan King was made twenty years later) and Leader of The Gang.

Great devices.
I also use mine for photography as well as note keeping. I keep my SD cards backed up on external hard drive and if you're lucky, you might get a second hand PPC from Ebay or your nearest branch of CEX as I've had a few from there.
Good luck in your search,

Re: Who'd Be a 1970s/80s BBC Personality Now

The news papers do it to increase circulation numbers and whip the people up into mindlessly supporting them If it ever came down to trial by media then god help us all (the media fuelled video nasty scare after the James Bulger murder is a classic example). E.G. Hungerford Massacre. Despite having ...

People who cross on zebra crossings who just walk straight out without looking. Edith Bowman. Cyclists who havent got the common sense they were born with.

What was that evil elevator (Max I think it was called) that took people to a 13th floor in? Eagle or 2000AD? Max was the computer in charge and he/it didn't like anybody upsetting his residents so he stopped the lift into a virtual reality world in which they ever died or changed their ways. He/it...

When you write some of the fiction I write A PPC/Smartphone/Palm (KEEP AN SD CARD!!) you need a lot of notes. Pen and paper notepads're alright but if you write some of like what I write you need three separate note pads and ave to flick through pages and pages for a certain note or code. That's bef...

Now that Dave Lee Travis has been found guilty of something that happened years ago, all these accusations against Jimmy Saville came to light after his death and Rolf Harris has been banged up, it seems that NO BBC personality (even if totally innocent) from the 70/80s is safe from the self appoint...

Windows Pocket PCs

Yes, you can all have a laugh at me because I still use Windrows driven Pocket PCs for most of my note keeping and some of my photography. Once seen as a toy for the busy professional, I only started using them out of curiosity (my very first being a Palmtop), they became cheaper and more accessible...

Re: Food/Drink from the past

The original Spangles. If you don't remember these from the 70s, you weren't born during that time.
