  1. 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.
  4. Tell him not to look up - that thing will fill up really quickly.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    Windows 7

    I've been using it for a few months and I really like it. Haven't had any problems/compatibility issues, installs like a dream, software runs perfectly and it's got some nice new features. Pretty happy.
  8. Nice pics/journal - screams 'urban'. Has that guy got a 'Speak & Spell' or is an effects device made to look like one? I had one when I were a nipper..
  9. Neo - yea, I did try Computer Love, hence the title, but it didn't work - I thought it was too slow Iain - Thanks, it's easier than it looks

  20. Has anyone here got any experience with distance-based IT training companies (Computeach, Cerco et al) and/or industry certs such as compTIA A+/N+, MCDST, CIW, MCSA/E, CISCO? I've read some articles lately that claim that the IT industry is in rapid decline while others suggest that it's expanding and even 'recession proof' What do you think? Does anyone here hold any of these certs? Are they of any use, especially without experience? I'm not really looking for advise, I'm researching but would like peoples opinions and/or anecdotes.
  21. When people talk about the 'Queen's English' it usually means good English or proper use of and well spoken. Have you ever seen a Hugh Grant movie? That's a public school-boy accent
  22. With regards to schools in the UK public and private is the same thing. Essentially, they are private schools (owned) that are open to the public if you can pay for them, as opposed to state schools that are free, and grammar schools that you have to pass an exam to get in to. To get into a private school such as Eton you have to pass an entrance exam too, which is usually fiddled anyway. Regular public schools start at around 15 -20 thousand GBP a year, Eton costs around a gazillion GBP a year. The line from the book you quoted sounds like sarcasm but might be serious too. Attending a public/private school can sometimes be regarded as a handicap by people who look down on the class system and people who look upon people like Boris Johnson (the Mayor of London) as an upper-class twit. You can usually tell if someone is privately educated by the way they speak (public school-boy accent)
  23. Sounds good - will look forward to it

    Koh Lanta Suggestion

    Layana - Phra Ae Beach It's a 50 room boutique resort and spa - very nice. I reviewed it for a magazine and featured it in Koh Lantas top 10 hotels. Kinda pricey though. Rms 6,500 - 17,000 layanaresort.com
  25. There's something about a snow-covered temple that's always captured my imagination - very nice
