  1. Re: Firefox Speed Tweak Just a small tip for any Firefox users who are using (or planning to use) this feature - personally I very rarely use Firefox, but that's just my own preference (Opera's features suit my needs better, that's all). It does work, but it's not as simple as the quoted guide suggests. The first problem is this bit. Firefox is only able to make a maximum of 8 simultaneous requests. That's just the way the browser is designed. You can ask it to make 30... or even 100' date=' but it won't. 8 is the maximum. Also, the higher you set this number, the more likely you are to
  2. Re: Anyone know of a good laptop? So roughly £400-750 That's quite a big range, so there are a LOT of options really. I'd say Samsung offer the best value for money at the moment though. I bought one recently myself, so I've looked at quite a lot of laptops around the £500-600 mark. Most other trusted brands (HP, Toshiba, Sony, Dell, Acer etc) were asking around £50 more than Samsung for laptops with the same processors/RAM/hard drives and other things. Well built machines from a reputable company, so they're a pretty safe bet really. There are cheaper options, but only from budget brands
  3. Re: Spam's Team Guide to the FIFA World Cup 2010 Maybe the qualification process does seem a bit unfair, but you have to remember it's based on past performances. If African teams started doing well at World Cups, they would have more places in the finals... fact is the ones that DO get beyond the group usually go out in round 2 (not exactly impressive is it?). Personally, I think Africa has about 5-7 teams on a similar level. That's why the competition is tough. Ivory Coast on paper, are considerably stronger than those 5-7 teams, and should in theory win a lot more than they actually do.
  4. Re: Slipknot Bassist Paul Gray Found Dead That's three metal/rock musicians in just the last few weeks that I've heard about then. First, Pete Steele, the Type O Negative frontman/bassist... then the legend that was Ronnie James Dio (Rainbow, Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell and Dio frontman)... now Paul Gray. I always hated Slipknot, if I'm honest. To me, they're just a symbol of everything that's wrong with metal. Having said that, though, it's never good when anyone dies that young. Sad news indeed.
  5. Re: Spam's Team Guide to the FIFA World Cup 2010 Well yeah' date=' the stats say the host usually does well, but like I said before... there's never been a host anywhere NEAR as weak as the current South Africa team. That 2002 South Korea squad might have been full of unknown players at the time, but if you look back now they were actually pretty strong. S.Korea and Japan both had really weak groups at that World Cup. Also, the Spain team at the time was still collapsing anytime they felt the slightest bit of pressure, and the Italians always leave themselves open to shock results with the
  6. Re: Spam's Team Guide to the FIFA World Cup 2010 To me, South Africa are a team that flatter to deceive. I will admit, they've looked ok in recent friendlies (and also to some extent in the Confederations Cup), but when it comes down to it they just don't get results. Just look at their record in ACoN qualifying: 2 defeats vs Nigeria (ok, so that's expected) 1 draw, 1 defeat vs Sierra Leone 2 wins vs Equatorial Guinea If they can only manage to beat Equatorial Guinea in competitive games, and can't manage more than 1 point from 6 against Sierra Leone, how can they be expected to take p
  7. Re: Spam's Team Guide to the FIFA World Cup 2010 That's true' date=' but you have to remember who the host nations have been in the past. The only 'weak' hosts before now have been USA in 1994, and Japan/S.Korea in 2002... and even they were all far stronger at the time than South Africa are currently. South Africa are ranked 90th in the world (behind Mozambique, Guinea, Haiti, Malawi, Panama, El Salvador etc) for a reason. I really can't see a team who failed so miserably to even qualify for the African Cup of Nations, finishing anywhere other than bottom of the group. France may be unde
  8. Re: Music Players? The best I know of for sound quality is Creative's Zen X-Fi series. They completely blow iPods out of the water, and they sound quite a bit better than the Sony players I've heard too (and I rate Sony players highly for sound, so it's not like that's an easy achievement). The touch screen version is the Zen X-Fi 2. It's available on the Creative Online Store (link above), and costs £129.99 for the 16GB model, or £169.99 for 32GB. If having a touch screen player isn't essential, there's also the original Zen X-Fi. This comes with slightly better earphones, giving even bet
  9. Re: Best Albums of 2009 Not much immediately springs to mind really. I don't remember being blown away by much in 2009. Certainly not as much as 2008 anyway. Plenty of decent albums, just not many great ones. Anyway, here's some off the top of my head (I might come back later with a proper list after I've had chance to think about it a bit more): 1349 - Revelations of the Black Flame The Axis Of Perdition - Urfe Beherit - Engram Blood Tsunami - Grand Feast For Vultures Blut Aus Nord - Memoria Vertusta II: Dialogue With The Stars Drudkh - Microcosmos Hjarnidaudi - Psyko:Stare:Void Mar
  10. Re: BREAKING NEWS - Robert Enke Passes Away The ignorance of some people in this thread, quite frankly, is disgusting. If the subject of discussion wasn't a person's death, I might even call it laughable. Clinical depression is a disease just like any other. It's a chemical imbalance that severely and uncontrollably affects your emotions and actions - and sometimes tiny (but significant) changes in brain structure. It's not like you just wake up one day feeling a bit down and decide to top yourself. Now ask yourselves this... had Enke died of a heart attack or cancer, would you still be cal
  11. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread That may be the case on SM (I haven't managed a team for a while, so I don't know exactly how much better it is), but it's not that clear cut in real life. It's all about implementation. Adapting your tactics slightly will probably do you far more good than changing your entire formation just for one single game. If when you lose the ball, the midfield 3 stay really narrow, and the wingers drop deep to make a 4-5-1/4-1-4-1, then the Chelsea midfield will be much less of a problem. Your DM can man-mark the Chelsea AM, and your other 4 then outnumber Chelsea's
  12. Re: Right now i'm listening to... Is it just me' date=' or has the number of covers being churned out in general shot up in the past few months? I mean I know the numbers have been steadily increasing for years, but recently it seems that pretty much every other song I hear, either in shops, on TV, or on the radio (not that I listen to it by choice) is a cover... and 99% of the time almost [i']identical[/i] to the original. There was a time when cover songs appeared roughly 1 track every 3-5 (ish) albums, and just as a small tribute to an artist the band respects (or occasionally a mickey
