    News International phone hacking

    Been meaning to post this one for a while... Basically, a while ago, a couple of News International employees got prosecuted for hacking into the mobile phones of Princes William and Harry and listening to their voicemails. At the time, there was a bit of a flap, and the editor of the News of...

    How much can you borrow?

    If this seems a bit like plugging my blog, then feel free to delete it (or tell me, and I'll delete it). Anyway, the Irish economy can charitably be described as "completely fucked", especially as it is on the danger list in Europe with stuff like national debt being downgraded. The reasons are...

    Well, sort of. I had to go down to Birmingham for a trade fair at the NEC. BBC Worldwide were there and you could talk about licencing and so on. Turns out that my offer of two packets of Smarties and a secondhand yo-yo wasn't enough to make Final Gear the official Top Gear forum, so sorry on...

    Eat a Doughnut? Then you are a Baby Killer!

    Krispy Kreme are offering a free doughnut to every customer to celebrate the Obama inauguration. They are using the phrase "Doughnut of Choice". However, the "C" word has inflamed the anti-abortion American Life League. Whereever you stand on the idea of abortion, this is insane!

    Argh! Rant, rant, rant.

    I apologise if this has been done before. I apologise if it is in the wrong place. I apologise if the bloke involved is the guy who owns this forum. Please mods feel free to remove or edit as you see fit. I just need to vent. I've downloaded TG - Season 2 from another place, and happily sat...
