  1. They've been doing that offer on a Thursday for a wee while now. They are doing another deal where all drinks are free with a meal. So, yes, I think they're desparate. Always empty when I pass it.
  2. Happy Mondays - Hallelujah, from Herbie's wonderful Clubhoose compilation. Ahh takes me back.
  3. I concur. Turn on the Bright Lights is a phenomenal album.
  4. 1. Fifteen to One 2. Nathan Barley 3. Brass Eye 4. Friday Night Live 5. Peep Show So much good stuff to choose from.
  5. I found it a bit of a slow burner. Got better after a few listens. Not a patch on their first two albums though. IMO. 1. Various - Death Proof OST 2. Mdslktr - Happy Birthday 3. Joy Division - Preston 28 02 80 4. Magda - She's a Dancing Machine 5. Phil Keiran's set from Sleaze @ 69
  6. Susan Penhaligon - circa 1977, "Soldaat van Oranje", era. I'd do her 5 times.
  7. There's links to downloadable versions at the end of the Wikipedia article.
  8. Another one to add to the list, Anjum Anand, on BBC2 the noo. The Nigella Lawson of spicy food
  9. No one mentioned Susie Dent yet? I'll take her, thanks.
  10. Superb selection of music there Herbie - takes me back Longue Route's a tune I've not heard in a long while. Think I'll annoy the neighbours with that one tonight.
  11. 1. LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver 2. Grinderman - Grinderman 3. Willy Mason - If the Ocean Gets Rough 4. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible 5. Biffy Clyro - Puzzle (given all the chat on here I thought I'd give this a go but alas it's not for me)
  12. Well I have a Sony Ericsson W800i and linux treats the Memory Card as an external hard drive so I can transfer mp3s to and from it. I don't have an mp3 player but if its a standard usb connection I'd imagine the same principle applies.
  13. Tabbed browsing has been available on Mozilla and other browsers for quite some time. I know it depends on what you want to use it for but can I suggest all the disgruntled Vista users look at installing some form of linux. I would recommend www.kubuntu.org but there are lots and lots of other distributions. Install is a painless experience and you'll find your PC/Laptop runs far quicker as the OS runs on less memory, leaving more available for your applications. There are free versions of all the standard applications that you would normally run on Windows - openoffice.org instead of MS Office, Amarok instead of your mp3 player, Firefox instead of IE, KMail instead of your email client, etc, etc. Viruses are (almost) unheard of in linux so no need for anti virus software (although it is available). The one thing linux is not good for is gaming and if that's your thing then you should leave well alone. There are literally thousands of free applications available for linux - catering for scientists, programmers, ham radio users(!), music producers, maths geeks, etc. If you're looking for a stable, fast, freely updateable operating system that lets you browse, read mail and news, listen to music, produce documents, spreadsheets, presentations, create databases (CD collection, book collection, recipes, etc), then give linux a go. I did 8 years ago and haven't looked back since. Give it a go. You can even install it alongside a Windows installation on the same PC and if you don't like it you can revert back to Windows.
