    Converting camcorder tapes onto DVD/memory stick/SD Card

    While having a clear out, I have come across a few old tapes from camcorders from back in the day. Does anyone know someone, or have the facilities themselves to put these onto modern storage? They have footage on of old holidays etc and I'd really like to view them again TIA

    A Cultural Review 2015

    I haven't seen many films this year - so it's been a year of new podcasts, new books, new TV shows and new music. New podcasts: Lore has been interesting - a bi-weekly investigation of myths/ No Such Thing as a Fish - funny at times, fascinating in others - produced by the team behind QI...

    Shrimpers DVDs!

    Good morrow to you all, I recall there being several southend "season review" VHS tapes released to the club shop over the years. I never bothered picking them up at the time at the time and I was wondering if anybody managed to transfer any to DVD?? Id be very interested in getting a copy of...
  6. Paul Brush on Baddiel and Skinner's Fantasy Football

    Just going through some old VHS tapes before I chuck them, and had forgotten that our very own Paul Brush used to appear on BBC's Fantasy Football programme. I think he was a number two back then also -- to Basil Brush.
  7. Haye Prays For A Giant Killing

    When I was at School, there was a bully who was a freak of nature to everybody else... Primarily because he stood at least a foot taller than everybody else with arms bigger than most peoples legs. One day, he took offence to my football hitting him and pushed me to the ground, So I know a...

    Question Recording Software

    If I was to (hypothetically) want to record a show that I can listen to on the radio (like in the old days of tapes) what would be good and free to use?

    I am bored so I am going to do a shot series on who the real food heroes of the world are. Today I give you none other then.... COLONEL HARLAND SANDERS Kentucky Fried Chicken, pioneered by Colonel Harland Sanders, has grown to become one of the largest quick service food service systems in...

    Where's Wally?

    Me and a mate were just talking about books when you were young at Infant and primary school. And I brought up the Where’s Wally books. Or Waldo as the Yanks call him. (It was changed to Waldo due to every time they asked a child where’s Wally they pointed at George Bush!) Used to keep me...

    The Fall

    I was reading some choice quotes from Mark E Smith yesterday and they reminded me that I have never really got quite 'in' to The Fall. I have a few songs of theirs knocking around on tapes from old Peel sessions and suchlike (Bingo Master's Breakout, Feeling Numb, Rainmaster) but wouldn't mind...

    Swing The Axe, Fabio!

    With a rare swathe of midweek Premier League fixtures, the next few days represent the last chance for English footballers to worm their way into Fabio Capello’s affections. The Italian manager names his first England squad on Saturday after spending a month travelling up and down the country in...
  15. if i was manager - the team for Saturday ?

    aha - Darryl was definately going to be starting until he did his back - all that blame for corners and stuff was always the back 4 - but this week I would have them lining up like this - Collis - (still hate the way he tapes his socks but ......) Francis (got a goal in the stiffs, Hunt...
  16. The Beatles - Love

    Have to say, I was very sceptical about this when I first heard about it - The Beatles back catalogue being re-arranged for a new Cirque de Soleil show being staged in Las Vegas. Then I heard that George Martin and his son Giles were overseeing the project personally using the original master...

    Pathetic Excuses Version 2

    The man, who was brandishing a wooden baton, got into St Stephen's Primary School in Hales Drive, Canterbury, through a back door and threatened the children. Despite five 999 calls, no police officers were sent to the school. "We regret we did not better respond to the needs of St...
  18. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...
  19. Lap-top and VHS

    I want to transfer from VHS tape to DVD. Would a lap-top have sufficient power to allow me to do this? I wouldn't want to spend a fortune if a tower system would offer me better options. Reason? About 400 SUFC goals on about 25 VHS tapes! Thanks chaps (and chappettes). 3-1 tonight!

    And now the end is near

    All, You may have noticed I haven't been round much these last few weeks. The truth is, now I've moved to Kent and virtually settled down (eek), I don't get involved in all the other SUFC stuff now - I've quit the Trust committee (although their aims are the same as mine) and...
