    Despite saying that I wasn't going to read the nonsense in the off topic threads any more here I am. Zheng Xiaoyu, head of China's Food and Drug agency was executed for this in early July. Does that make you feel better?

    E Book Reader

    I have two ipods, (gifts) and as far as I'm concerned they are the worst piece of user interface design I have ever seen. Having said that I use them heavily despite my issues with them because of the convenience they offer. I like the idea of the Sony reader and the Kindle, I'm more attracted...

    Where to buy Mirror Glass?

    Local glazier is your best bet in my experience, I was shocked at how little mine wanted for a 5 x 1.5 ft mirror. It was something like £16. I was expecting something much higher than that. Cheers Mike

    Google Chrome

    Very possibly, I'm thinking that it's boilerplate, identical to the licensing for the google docs et al etc suggesting that it was just stuck in, in a "this is our standard license" fashion. Cheers Mike

    The Best Woodwork I have Ever Seen.

    Not in my experience, but then whether art is considered pointless by a "massive amount of people" and whether art is actually pointless are two separate issues. Cheers Mike

    The Best Woodwork I have Ever Seen.

    If that were the case it would render all art pointless. Thankfully not so. Cheers Mike

    Google Chrome

    The fact that you "confirm and warrant to Google that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the above licence." in the EULA as pointed out in the Reg article suggests that it is rather more than an oversight. edit Look at section 11.2 of the EULA "You agree that...

    Pippy timbers - how to handle?

    If it's the piece I'm thinking of it's very pretty too. Sharp blades should do it, scrapers might come in handy as well. As someone previously mentioned Rob (Woodbloke) has recent experience and might be able to shed light. Cheers Mike

    torrent downloading

    Torrent downloading involves many machines connected together in what's called a peer to peer network. Each of the machines has an amount of the the fileset to be downloaded, over time each of the machines increases the amount it has by virtue of swapping bits with each other. First there is...

    Record Bandsaw Masterclass...

    Am I tensioning my blade incorrectly? (BSX300) I wind the tension up with the wheel which takes a good grip at its extreme end but isn't monstrously hard and then I complete the tensioning with the lever arm which brings the blade up to a guitar string pluckable tension. I haven't watched the...

    Money for Tool Buying

    Hmmm let me see Cos good money is hard to come by? There's nothing wrong with cheap girls or fixer uppers. Cheap cars get you from A to B as long as youre happy to replace them with another cheap car to get you back to A again. Horses / courses. It's a case of buying appropriately for...
