Re: Masons, Buckmans and whats-her-name?

No idea, but I'm sure that current staff should be able to point you in the right direction.

Re: Search for Watercolour or print of Christ's Hospital

Hello Lillian, I find it hard to believe that the school has nothing to offer considering there is an Art school. This would be a prime opportunity for current pupils or even art staff to paint a nice watercolour of the grounds or something CH related. It may be worth contacting the Head of Art to s...

It's not a con. I've managed to train my eyes so that I can change it either way. If you focus on the legs as both of them meet the centre of the screen you can get it to spin one rotation clockwise and then immediately anti-clockwise and vice versa. I don't think it's programmed on a pattern, it's ...

Although Digital Rights Mangement can be considered obsolete due to its 'crackability', it's still another step that gets in the way of the 'cracker'/downloader, as decoding is a time-consuming process in itself; taking away the 'convenience' of illegal copying. If iTunes could monopolise the indust...

This link may be of interest: http://www.unc.edu/~cigar/papers/FileSharing_March2004.pdf For those that can't be bothered to read through, this study concludes that file sharing has "no statistically significant effect" on record sales. I rarely use P2P, but when I do it's usually for 'convenience'....

I understand how the business works. Just highlighting the fact that the collection of royalties is an important revenue stream regardless of the money they receive for broadcast. Who's to say that the Kwik-Fit mechanics aren't playing CDs/MP3s or other media that they've paid for... in which case t...

If a company is playing music that is audible to the public without a licence then the PRS should be taking legal action. Artists deserve their royalties. The Kwik-Fit employees should be ensuring that their 'personal' radios are not heard by others. Put yourself in the position of the artist/songwr...

Wouldn't surprise me, the BBC are probably cutting costs by not employing anyone to proof-read their stuff.

Oops that can be read two ways... what I mean by same problem is, I had the same problem with the test if i click all the colours it still tells me to click the last one. I'm not insinuating that Englishangel is mad. After all, I don't want to be criticised for being condescending, supercool, smug, ...

I'm sorry, Kerren, but I'm going to stomp all over your mollification... Was there a Wodehouse novel entitled "Oh, Come Off It, Jeeves?" James, you must surely have realised that your posting would spark a response, and you got one! You got a few, actually, but all of them were positive except one,...

I think his comments about Hertford were more than a tad harsh. One of the things I've enjoyed about this forum is finding out what life was like at Hertford and how life has changed at Horsham since the merger. This has possibly been misconstrued as harsh. I am interested in what life was like at ...
