Don't get me wrong I drive to the speed limit 99% of the time but it bugs me for example when you have someone driving at 30mph down a 50mph stretch of road holding everyone up. Then all of a sudden that speed limit for the road comes down to say 30mph but the fecker is more than happy to break the speed limit and do 40mph+ :evil: talk about annoying.
I really hate it when you're doing 30mph in a speed camera zone for example and cars behind come zooming right up behind then follow really closely. Yeah, I'm sure you were only doing 30 when you were rapidly catching me up :roll:

Also, cars that overtake you on 30mph roads as if you're going too slow :roll:
For anyone thats up my car's ass, I have one thing to say to them and its stuck on the back of my car. The amount of tailgaters have decreased tenfold :D

TV, we now have the best part of a 1000 channels and there is nothing to watch :( it really is sad that I spend more on youtube now. I would love to cancel the sky but the Mrs will not have it.

Finally upgrading to Windows 7 and a bran dnew PC, but being unable to get rid of the weird effect where text thickness varies across the page. Tried updated the drivers, turning off text smoothing and messing around with true type, but just can't get it right.

Also buying a £45 shaver and finding it's complete crap

Are you using a standard monitor?

If so, try adjusting the phasing and dot clock or use the auto adjust if it has one.

It seems theyre having the annual crackdown....woke up to 12 emails saying that due to copyright these have been removed. Theyve been up for like 2 years and have thousands of comments.

Its my second warning and my channel will soon be shut down....I know i dont own the copyright but where else can you view stuff thats never going to be released anytime soon....even Iain said in this months mag he was off to watch some pole position on youtube....there isnt an official pole position upload so Iain would have been sorely dissapointed if someone hadnt uploaded one

It is annoying when its only a snippet of something. if its the full thing its understandable

Most annoying was my "Is my parrot possessed" video where they muted the audio, the audio made the video what it was
They wont even let me upload anything over ten minutes or live stream

^^^ Thought you mentioned (a while back) that you used Blip TV instead of Youtube? Hard to see why so many people bother with YT anymore - hard to see the point when almost anything can be banned due to copyright.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

That remided me

Blip.tv is better, but fewer people use it and it dont work on all devices.

Thing is with Youtube Nintendo started to be dicks about things and telling people what to do in there videos.
At least Video games Awesome had a laugh about it.

It feels like videos should be more professional on there

Not stuff like this

It sounds like you don't have the resolution set to the native monitor resolution. Also, as mentioned above, press the auto-adjust afterwards if it's still not quite right.

People who are too lazy to take shopping trolleys back to the bay holding area. Just got back from Tesco watched a hefty twosome fill their boot and leave the trolley roll away, they got in the car giggling and drove off, i felt like running to their trolley and putting it in front of the car before they could leave.
