i have no clue what you're on about but thanks anyway =))

I've tried being sneaky and converting the BBC file to post on yootoob, but those pesky BBC boffins have a licence/rights thingy attached to it to prevent that :(

pvr is a modern video recorder but instead of recording to tape you record to a hard drive, like a sky + box you can also pause live tv, with ours you can also edit & record to dvd

I don't know if any of you caught The Politics Show today but there was a piece on train-spotting. Apparently British Rail Transport Police have been cracking down on train-spotters photographing on station platforms as it may be considered a 'terrorist activity'. Any of the stalwarts here had that?

For a moment there Nickolas, I thought you had asthma. It was a great programme, but I preferred Noggin the Nog. You couldn't get arrested for it in those days :D

haven't watched the above link yet but could this be the reason Tornado was mentioned on BBC News last Sunday? \:D/
