Re: Lost Retail Chains

Aye, every Tandy had that metal detector with the bright orange handle in the window. http://www.techzonics.com/alert-metal-detector.jpg Tandy was owned by what is now Radio Shack. More common in the USA, but there's one in Lytham St Annes, a nice wee town down the coast from Blackpool.

That's your Jessops in administration...

Re: Am I the only one?

I can't say I've ever been injured by a cyclist, or even nearly injured. I do hate seeing adult cyclists on pavements where there's a road, though.

"constantly treated as being less than human" seems like a hell of an exaggeration as well.

Re: Computer Problems.

Nope, the USB socket will be for a USB hard drive or thumb drive type thing. You won't be able to connect a PC directly to it unfortunately.

Are the digital in optical or coax? Most sound cards/audio interfaces that have one will have the other, so you'll be fine using that.

Re: Computer Problems.

Anyone know of a laptop that features a decent hi fi connect? What inputs does your hi-fi have? Ideally you'd want to go digital all the way to the hi-fi, so if it has coax or optical sp-dif input, you're laughing. I wouldn't go for a laptop with either of these outputs built-in, however. It's unco...

Re: No-Go Areas in Glasgow. Serious ones.

To deny the facts is to be complicit---a la Jimmy Savile. That's a rational argument if ever I saw one. "If you disagree with me, you're a fucking paedo!" That forum he linked to is proof, if it were needed, that computers are too easy to use these days. His arguments are laughable. You'd...

Re: New camera shop on Sauchiehall Street

It's unfortunate, but that's how the high street is going to go. They can't or won't compete with online shopping.
