    Still, the best method with dealing with these people is the traditional British method of ignoring the problem and hoping that it will go away

    If you don't give them any attention then it won't feel like they are actually having any effect and they will give up

    Yes its Sir Patrick Stuart. I thought the voice over sounded similar to his voice so i googled it a while back when it was bugging me because im sad like that.

    EDIT: Remembrance day is not about any war or atrocity, its about respecting the individuals who have died. A war such as the Second World War has individual merits as to why people fought in them then on the other hand a lot of wars are of a political nature but are certainly not of the individual soldiers making. People die in every war and i respect the families who are broken by loss and the fact that someone has died not for what they did but because its sad that people still die in wars. Nobody is celebrating the fact a soldier killed anyone, its more the fact that people still die in wars and people are still willing to die for a political establishment.

    By the way all you folk of Eastern Asian decent are in a similar boat to others who you criticise. A lot of the people you want to "send back" or "shoot" are now 3rd 4th generation Brits, embedded in our culture. If you want to have a freedom to protest you must take the good with the bad but i think those that want to protest against Remembrance day do not understand the real reasons behind having a day to Remember the war dead (see above paragraph). My ancestry is Irish so what do i do fuck off back to Ireland? Also Britain did a hell of a lot of atrocities in Asia such as the Opium Wars.

    People want to be respected but complain they cant burn a Qur'an or flag or strip naked on a Saudi beach? You lead by example otherwise you become as bad as those you criticise. You cant expect to do that if you want others to stop doing similar things. Its like murdering a murderer it just makes you one too.

    I personally have no problem with religion its when they get vocal and start to force an issue that bothers me, that goes for any religious sect. You cannot prove a religion its a "faith" so they should not be forcing it upon others.

    The thing i dont get is that Scotch isn't even a real term for a Scotsman, its is exactly that Scots or Scottish.

    Can you suggest any particular models that would have a digital dashboard?

    I really want one for my PC, imagine having one of those in the front of your PC telling you all your Temps and Frame-rate or whatever, VFD's just look so much cooler then LED's

    EDIT:There is this but it looks terrible http://www.scan.co.uk/products/silv...ce=google shopping&utm_medium=google shopping, Who honestly thought having that much box around the display would look nice?

    Model/Serial numbers from Electronics, think of it, you get a 6 Digit+ Random collection of Letters and numbers, and if you ever forget it, is right there in front of you!

    Hunting for router suggestions, I need wireless N and something able to support 7 laptops, 3 smartphones, a PS3 and possibly a few more devices for guests. I suspect the Virgin DGN-1000SP stock is struggling to keep everything connected, some devices get no internet at all while others are prefectly fine.

    In English please?

    Both Google and I cannot work out what that means in English

    The's probably a higher chance of someone stealing your password then there is someone robbing your house

    Depends on how much you want to spend, is that ADSL or Cable?

    Funnily enough me and my cousin can game on his laptop and my desktop at the same time on multiplayer but as soon as someone starts to download anything everything else slows down.

    ASDL2+. Spend? Well, something which is cheap and good. If it costs £100 and it is "cheap and good" I will not hesitate to get it.

    Have you tried phoning your ISP and asking for a better router?
    Fourstaff says thanks.
