  1. VPNs to be banned in some Countries.

    VPNs are to be banned in Russia this year, and China in 2018. Both big brother Countries want to control information, news, social media and such, more than they do now. Russia has an election in 2018, and are taking control even more of their people. China is very soon going to ban Facebook...

    Has anyone used a local architect that specialises in conversions and knows what Castle Point planners are likely to approve? If so I would appreciate their details. If not I could always knock on Ron's door I suppose...

    Sale of Kodi 'fully-loaded' streaming boxes faces legal test

    I came across this on the BBC news webpage. Any of you Kodi users out there may wish to be aware if you are not already. It appears that the legal interest is in the various add-ons inside the boxes. Not that any of us have watched anything illegally on our desktop versions obviously...

    Original songs and the best cover versions

    Quite simple really, you probably all have some favourite music from your past which others have then recorded as a cover version. Some covers have become more 'famous' and that is the main driver of this thread. I'll kick it off with Handbags and Gladrags. Originally recorded by Chris Farlow...

    Best cover versions

    This tweet from a fellow Southend fan yesterday got me thinking... 582938081956929537 My answer was Lonnie Donegan's version of 'Rock Island Line' and also Blur's 'M.O.R.' which isn't officially a cover of Bowie's 'Boys Keep Swinging' but comes very close to the mark. Countless others though...

    Same old same old!!!

    I've now experienced every World Cup tournament starting from 1966 (that was a good one because we won it), and each time it comes around I start to get to get excited from the build-up onwards. I always think that England will do well and maybe even win it. The trouble is that apart from my...

    Medal of Honour

    New Medal of Honour out today, some of the PS3 versions (and maybe Xbox) have the extra feature of Medal of Honour Frontline from the PS2 being remastered and included as a separate game. Looks good, but with COD Black Ops out next months seems a strange time to have released MoH.

    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...

    The Best Cover Versions

    Sometimes the original is not always the best. Take one of the most rasping, thumping, intelligent songs of the 90's add a Starship Captain add Lego Genius http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRWsuyQ6Y0Q So what's your favourite cover?

    The Song Remains The Same

    There is a feeling among the journalists who cover Arsenal regularly that, in the event of a calamitous keyboard malfunction, they could probably file their latest match report using a hastily-assembled hybrid of old ones. A quick rummage through 'My Documents', they claim, would deliver all the...

  18. The real cost of watching Football...

    Now, according to Virgin Money, the average regular fan of a Premiership football team forked out £1,331 (5% of average salary) supporting their side in 2007. This covered the cost of tickets, merchandise, travel, food, alcohol and match programmes. One in eight dedicated fans paid out as much...

    Bring Back TV

    I remember the Saturdays of old (and when I mean old I mean the 90’s). Long gone are the days of Krypton Factor, You Bet, Gladiators (not these current versions!!), Noel’s House Party, Blind Date, Surprise Surprise, Beadles About and Big Break. These made Saturday nights for me as a kid. But...

    Women's Way

    The Good Housekeeping Way #1 Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips. The Real Women's Way Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for God's sake. You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway. The Good...
