  1. I've quite liked Clarke's captaincy so far in this match. I was thinking before the start I would give Johnson the new ball to see what happens and he did - I think it was a good idea. He didn't bowl that well but then neither did Hilfenhaus. Bowling changes became a bit frenetic as the day wore on but at least he was trying things - giving Johnson an over before lunch for example. What I really liked was the way he spoke after the match with regards to Hughes appeal and Bell's referral. He handled it well and it was good to see.
  2. This is usually caused by a broken or corrupted codec or if someone has messed up a mux and put a codec in the wrong container, but if it's happening on multiple files and files of a certain type then I would say it's the codec. I know it's already been said but the k-Lite codec pack is a safe bet and all the versions come with Divx and Xvid or you can try the CCP one. K-Lite comes with Media Player Classic. Check all the settings in your media player too - framerate sync etc. This type of thing can cause this problem. Judging by the symptoms I would say it's almost certainly codec related an
  3. Has anyone got any experience with web hosting companies - bluehost.com, justhost.com for example? Can anyone recommend one? Doesn't need to be super-featured with dedicated servers or IP's just cheap and reliable preferably with UK-based customer support. Thanks

    MSN Virus

    Open task manager and click the second tab 'processes' and check to see if you have any strange processes running. Just google them to find out what they are if you're not sure. If not I think this is spam - changing your login details might help. You can also change your privacy settings and only allow people on your list to contact you, this can stop you receiving the messages. You can ask your friends to do the same and see if the messages stop, at least that way you can determine whether or not its spam.

    MSN Virus

    Where do you see the virus/message? Does it come in an MSN instant message or a pop up window in Windows Explorer? My guess is that it's probably a trojan, not a virus.
  6. Tell him not to look up - that thing will fill up really quickly.

  8. So, what's new? Apple has a history of vile business practices - anti-trust, vendor lock-in and piss-poor conditions for workers. A bit like most other multi-national corporations. Apple's market value didn't surpass that of Microsoft's last week by giving their factory workers and extra ten minute tea-break. How could it? The pointless Apple/Microsoft debate will rage on while the worlds mini and supercomputers operating now in excess of 1 PetaFlop are machines built with off-the-shelf components and server class CPU's running linux. Just another reason why Mac's suck.
  9. Remember to check you're travel insurance. Insurance companies don't cover for any incidents which arise whilst travelling to a country the Foreign Office has advised against travelling to. If that doesn't worry you, then I guess you've got nothing to worry about.
  10. You talk like software and commercial hardware stood still but processors, kept on going... Photos are now 15mp up to 25mp just on entry level cameras (40+ on commercial cams) A 20,000b lappy would lock up for an hour using CS4's gaussian blur on an image from my current camera.. Pure HD content is 1gb for every couple of minutes.. thats 25 frames x 1900 pixels for just a second of video (maybe you still think 640x480 is the norm)... convert 40 minutes of that and your 20,000 laptop is out of use for 6 hours or more. My state of the art notebook comes to a crawl doing this type of work which
  11. As far as I know Photoshop uses the virtual memory or the 'scratch disk' when the system runs out if available RAM - like the swap or paging file used by the OS. The reason is that photoshop can only use the first 2 GiB of RAM and the rest is left to the system. (Not sure about 64bit OS, probably different) When this is not enough it uses the scratch disk which is normally a ATA/IDE or SATA HDD which is obviously much slower than RAM so the system will slow down or hang but this is rarely a problem unless your using 512MiB/1GiB of RAM. as of a few years ago Adobe employees had confirmed that P

  13. Sandy Denny is right up there for me. She sadly died young (30ish or something) but she made loads of albums and influenced many other artists. I'm not that familiar with much of her stuff but what I have heard I've loved. her voice is just amazing. A lot of people know her from singing on Battle of Evermore by Led Zeppelin but she performed with Fairport Convention her own band Fotheringay, the Strawbs too I think and she did her solo stuff. Probably tons more too. I like Minnie Ripperton too. I liked her lyrics, they were really sexy without being explicit or vulgar. Not sure how much of th
  14. The same could be said for any computer. Actually, this article reads more like an advert for Macs or the gumf you'd read on the back of a leaflet you'd pick up in an Apple store. Is it from the Apple website? I sounds like quite an old article too - the computing industry has already moved to 64bit architecture. SUN, IBM and HP developed it for their systems in the 90's and supercomputers have used the technology for decades. Intel and AMD have developed CPU's with 64bit address registers since the Itanium and Opteron. Even cruddy little laptops like the Dell Inspiron have have shipped with W
  15. Actually, 'Pompey' is the nickname of the City of Portsmouth We're awesome. I take it that the definition of 'awesome' in this case is; 'we may win the Championship next season.'? :wink: One step at a time. We have to win the FA Cup first. The there's the UEFA Europa League next year. Then we'll probably have our nth owner this year in old watsisname, that bloke from up north and his RSA consortium. Then I guess we'll need to get started on that new stadium.. Portsmouth; The only club where they encourage you to throw coins at the players. I left 2 Portsmouth tickets on my seat while I we
