  1. Is this OS compatible with all plug in devices like printers, modems, cameras etc? is it easy enough to use? is there any need to run 3rd party anti virus/firewall software ?
  2. Where in my post did I say or imply that Aussies will die from skin cancer?
  3. Thanks, In my experience, windows PCs are fine, until you plug into the net. I'm having to format my drive every few months just to keep this thing running smoothly and it's getting tiring. I have been thinking about purchasing a mac for a while now and you might just have swayed me.
  4. Thankyou. It's what makes this country a pleasure to live in, and it's all free
  5. Would a Mac be faster and more stable than it's windows PC equivalent?
  6. It's an observation and I'm not looking to prove anything. And you are generalising.
  7. Indeed, I took these last winter in the Peak District which is a 10 minute drive away. I've been mountain biking in this area every wknd for 5 years and every time I go out I think to myself how lucky I am to have such beautiful scenery on our doorstep. The ones that are doing all the p1ssing and moaning about how dreary the UK is need to get out of the city more.
  8. ...And the highest rate of skin cancer in the world http://www.stbedes.cg.catholic.edu.au/docu...es/SUNSMART.pdf
  9. The bankruptcy of GM will be another hammer blow for the IT undustry.. Why a GM Bankruptcy Would Be a Disaster "The risk of liquidation would then loom large because the financial losses would mount. The dislocation would cascade through the economy, not just the Midwest. GM, with its suppliers, represents a full 1% of the economy. It is the largest private-sector purchaser of information technology, so Silicon Valley will feel it; and Madison Avenue will feel the collapse of its advertising spend. Any hopes that the U.S. economy has stabilized would take a beating—there would be another sickening lurch downward. Obama isn't just ruling on the fate of a single company; he is about to pull the trigger on a wide swath of the same economy he is attempting to stabilize." link

  11. Why didn't you try venturing out of London? " "
  12. Unless you just purchased a house in Chelsea...
  13. I have a friend who purchased a new build a couple of years ago and it's now costing him £1500 per month in depreciation.
  14. My GF's sister criticised us for renting, saying that it was dead money etc. She's now just bought a house under a shared ownership scheme and rents half the property from the council Buying a house now and taking out a mortgage in these perilous times is like committing financial suicide. Some people must have lemming in their DNA.
  15. I estimate that my LL has spent around £5k on repairs and upgrades since I have been renting this house. All I have to do is pick up the phone and explain what the problem is and she will send a plumber/trician/DIY man round the following day. Also my rent has remained unchanged for 5 years. Although my LL is quite fussy about the upkeep of her property, I think it's a good thing. Renting is very convenient and I'm in no rush to become a debt slave. I see no reason to buy a property unless they come down another 50%.
  16. I've been watching the number of unemployed on the job loss ticker on the finance page of the telegraph and it seems to be accelerating fast It will be more like 5 mil at this rate.
  17. I think prices will be down - 2.5%, just a gut feeling I have
  18. Cars, mansions, jet skis and many other trappings of the high life are either not selling or going dirt cheap at auctions. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124268209889631903.html
  19. He paid $460,000 for the house. That's quite a large figure. He could have just rented a modest property for a fraction of the mortgage payments and still managed to pay child maintainence.
  20. "Despite the obvious red flag of applying for a Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell loan, I wasn’t paying that much for the money. The rate on my primary mortgage of $333,700 was a remarkably low 5.625 percent for the first five years, though my monthly payments would probably jump substantially after the fifth year. On top of that, I was paying a much higher rate of 8.5 percent on my “piggyback” loan for $80,300. Even so, I would be paying slightly more than $2,500 a month for the first five years. It would get expensive eventually, but I could worry about that later." This was another fatal error he made- classic head in the sand mentality which lead to his own undoing.
