Great article and a classic example of what can happen when a small group of bright, dedicated, no-holds-barred people get together.

Also a classic example of what happens when a small group of bright, dedicated, no-holds-barred people get swallowed up by huge corporations.

Re: Dave

UK History back rather than a poor BBC3 clone with ads? There's good stuff on there but nothing that isn't on other channels whereas UK History was unique on FV. Yeah, I can't believe it only runs from 6am to 6pm now (unless EPG is lying to me, and it doesn't run at all - I haven't been at home dur...

I haven't watched it (although the line up looks quite good if only for QI), but the name did amuse me. I think they should have another channel called Bruce. And then rename all channels to Bruce to save on confusion :)

XBox360/VGA/Washed Out Colours

I discovered this today, which to be fair probably is common knowledge only I didn't know about it so I thought I'd share. I use a VGA cable to connect my 360 to my TV. The colours have always been a bit washed out (blacks being grey and that kind of thing) which I assumed was just a "quality" of th...

Forum Section... uh... Suggestion

I wonder if any of the staff can help me on this one. Is it possible someone could upload a Hi-Res image of the cover for 43? I'd like it for the 'Donkey Kong' logo specifically, so if anyone can get a large(high-quality) image of that, I'd appreciate it. By the way, good issue, I was really surpri...
