Re: Electric Car Charging Restrictions?

Short on time as I'm packing to go to Tanzania tomorrow morning but wanted to do a swift, if insufficient, response to some of your excellent points.

Re: Electric Car Charging Restrictions?

A classic example of misrepresenting facts by taking them out of context and mixing scenarios. Not for the first time of course.

A lot of it comes by mixing the various scenarios described in a...

Re: Barking Mad

Re: Preview Images in Black and White

Another loosely linked observation of this is that along with the mono element as described by Paul you can use a different image format (i.e. 1:1, 16:9 etc.) in essentially the same way. So if you...

Re: 60fps - for landscapes?

I have seen this basic idea, just using multiple images shot manually on a tripod, as a suggested alternative to ND filters on the grounds that is avoids any colour correction issues. I'm sure it...

Re: Depressing article in The Guardian...

Before I climb back under my boat to do a second coat of anti foul I would suggest that we could point out a similar failing of the Tory faithful.

I believe it is erroneous to try and paint either...

Re: Depressing article in The Guardian...

Complacency and arrogance.

I have a friend who, by virtue of his work, comes into contact with MPs and the "Westminster set" on occasion. A few weeks ago he was saying how he was told that Cameron...

Re: Has Theresa May shot herself in the foot

Let them mature even more *yes

How wonderful would that be when that delicate aroma is released.

Also, I think a mass mooning is required. Just think of his reaction. The tweet would be great....

Re: Depressing article in The Guardian...

Absolutely correct. In fact many of the papers have swapped allegiances over time including the Guardian which has been Liberal in the past.

I would say that about the Times given it is owned by Rupert Murdoch who is hardly an independent voice!

Don't forget he also owns the Sun which is also well known for it's political neutrality.
