  1. You've got to hand it to Apple the way they do things. Pretty much give minimal updates in terms of specs but wrap it all up into something that actually is something that will sell masses. I suppose it just isn't all about 'raw specs' is it.
  2. No plans other than to get out more than last season. I really wimped out a few times. Got to stop that.
  3. I have just come back from the bank - paid the whole lot in one go. That was painful. But I can forget about it now until next June.

Don't even understand the question, never mind care. I find it all quite amusing actually.
  5. I bought Office 2007 pretty much when it came out and installed it to replace my previously ancient version. Didn't have a single problem once. Makes me laugh all this talk of bugs and massive problems. Never had any. With the amount of testing this new version has had, and the pretty good reviews all round, I would buy again. If I had any money and felt I needed it! Some people just seem to get off endlessly moaning and bashing Microsoft / Apple / Sony other big hugely successful company, regardless of the merits of the product. Others just enjoy things they feel like enjoying and
  6. Hot Tub Time Machine looks good: Four guy friends, all of them bored with their adult lives, travel back to their respective 80s heydays thanks to a time-bending hot tub. I watched The Hangover over the holidays, very funny.
  7. Today round here. I am back to work tomorrow.
  8. No, it was not. Lots of reading exactly what was written on the prepared notes and reports in front of us though.
  9. I had an extraordinary meeting this morning. Lasted 4 hours, I spoke nonce.
  10. If you get Windows 7 Ultimate, you can download the English language files easily and switch to English. Very simple. If you get any other Windows 7 (ie. not the Ultimate version), you can still do it (though perhaps this is naughty) using something called Vistalizator (easy to find it on search) and then do it that way. It works, my Home Premium is in English that way.
  11. That sounds like a great deal joshnii. I went into Docomo today and they didn't know anything about that.
  12. I like it. Not had any problems at all after upgrading. There's a family pack out there now that gives you 3 licences at a relatively cheap price, so if you want it on 3 machines good to get.
  13. Correct, I think it's the shotoku or whatever it's called. Other than that and special toll roads all the main expressways take part. triptaka I see is in Osaka.
  14. No, it doesn't have to be a return trip. What you said above is correct.
  15. I got Vista when it was first out. No problems at all. I really liked it from the word go. Probably I'm one of the 'tens of thousands' - perhaps even more - of users who thought that. We're perhaps not as vociforous as the anti-MS protestors. I'll be getting Windows 7 as well on a new machine in October/November with no hesitation.
  16. 51450 yen! Size: A体ã€ï¼¡ï¼¢ä½“ã€ï¼¢ï¼¢ä½“ 4 å·ï½ž7 å· -- what?
  17. Good on you mate. I am not doing that much but giving it a decent go before summer gets going. Also cutting down on snacks which I'm finding the most difficult.
  18. Hiya Was wondering anyone on here got any kind of electronic pen type gadget like the livescribe one?
