_Spongenot that it matters.11:47
_SpongeDid anyone see that FairTaxTown documentary on the Beeb ?11:47
_SpongeMy friend, the Lady from the Isle of Man, was on that.11:48
awilkinsI did11:54
awilkinsTLDW : Yes, it's perfectly possible for small businesses to use the same tax-avoidance schemes as the big boys11:55
awilkinsTBH I think the only thing that will get HMRC and the government to fix the situation is when someone commercializes tax-avoidance for small business11:56
awilkinsGiven that 99% of businesses in the UK are small businesses, there's a market there11:56
directhexwasn't that what the did at the end?11:58
directhexselling their "fair tax town" formula?11:58
awilkinsI don't think they actually went through with it11:59
awilkinsCurrently they are still on the Light Side of the Tax11:59
awilkinsThey created a viable tax avoidance scheme but are only using it as a campaigning tool right now AFAICT12:00
awilkinsThe ringleader is running for head of the HMRC board12:00
awilkinsFrom their front page : "The Fair Tax Town Scheme is designed to put us in a strong negotiating position with HMRC, and not to avoid tax…"12:01
awilkinsActually using the tax avoidance scheme would presumably be the nuclear option12:02

zmoylan-piproper keyboards for the non abbreviated win \o/13:35
knightwiseThe one on my mbp is big enough .. i just type too fast13:37
zmoylan-pino such thing as typing too fast... merely a computer too slow to keep up13:38
davmor2zmoylan-pi: stop using that zx81 and use something a little more modern you know like an amiga or atari then ;)13:40
=== alan_g|lunch is now known as alan_g
zmoylan-pia zx81? do you think i'm made of money... ::hugs zx80::13:41
zmoylan-piand stay away from those new fangled ram packs... nothing but wobble... :-)13:42
zmoylan-pii was tempted when i saw someone had connect a zx spectrum to twitter till i saw the network card used had a more powerful processor than the speccy13:43
davmor2I liked the guy that turned the raspi into a 48k emulator and installed it in an old spectrum I thought that was genius and all so he could play jetset willy :)13:45
zmoylan-piit's not the same using a pc keyboard in an emulator somehow...13:46
zmoylan-pimaplins sell a fuse keyboard that is very reminiscent of the bbc keyboard.  tempting but too expensive13:49
davmor2ah the good old bbc micro :) whisks me back to school :)13:58
MooDooused to play chucky egg or frak on our bbc at schoo :)14:24
davmor2we weren't really allowed to play games on them except for adventure games as those meant you read stuff as they were all text based :)14:34

diddledanmapps: I liked it15:20
diddledanmapps: way to cluster filesystem-check our collective minds :-p15:21
diddledaneverything we thought we knew about the cannon of the x-files… nope, you’re wrong15:22
awilkinsMulder : now a skeptic15:43

bigcalmpopey: I haven't used mine for some time now, might have improved16:36
popeyi just booted it up, did an OTA update and played GTA516:37
popeydidn't notice16:37
bigcalmpopey: the issue I, and directhex, found was that now and then there would be a freeze in game play. Followed by restored game play, but the last action of the controller repeated many times.16:37
bigcalmResulting in walking off ledges in Lego games mostly16:38
popeymaybe I haven't played long enough to trigger that16:38
popeyor don't have those games16:38
bigcalmThis is over wifi n and LAN over power16:38
bigcalmIt wasn't any one game, happens for all streaming things16:38
bigcalmAs I say, I haven't used it for some time. Might have been fixed16:39
bigcalmdirecthex: Steam link still causing lag pockets for you?16:39

mappslol shock numerous people claiming they had the 33mil winning ticket18:55
diddledando they really think that camelot won’t check?18:56
mappswho knows, some people ust want attention from papers/tv18:56
mappshow could camelot check though if you bought the ticket in a shop and then chucked it away18:57
diddledanthey won’t pay if you don’t have the ticket IIRC18:57
mappsya i thought so..so saying you binned it or washed it18:58
zmoylan-pijust attach the genital electrodes and put them through lie detector test... not saying it's accurate but will thin the herd... :-D18:58
mappsmeans it goes unclaimed right?18:58
mappshow did this 21 yr old die..says she got wdged between 2 sofas on a drinking session?!18:59
mappssome young girl travelling in australia18:59
mappssaid she was on beta blockers and a history of palpitations..still seems odd18:59
mappscaught the end of murder games bbc3 docu drama about a 14yr old groomed by an 18yr old22:02
mappspretty sad story;/22:02
diddledanmapps: lucifer is fun22:02
mappsi was looking at that earlier as it happens22:03
diddledanjust watching the first ep22:03
mappsstarted 'power' ..heard of it? it sounded whack22:03
mappsbut 7.8 , 8.2/10 on tv.com/imdb22:03
diddledandon’t think I know that one22:03
mappsso figured id give it a try...directed by 50 cent22:03
mappsima download the bbc3 doc, it's strange to think something as innocent as playing games could endup in murder22:05
zmoylan-pidid you not notice all the gun fighting over cards in westerns?22:08
mappsbut i mean this is young kids being groomed over game forums and team speak stuff22:09
mappsmust be so many vile people lurking on forums/server trying to groom kids, impossible to get a #22:10
diddledanmapps: I want to know why I haven’t been groomed by any vile people. I’m most disappointed22:11
mappsyou want to be? to troll them i assume?22:18
mappsor report them22:19
diddledanmapps: it’s just that I must be offensive or something22:23
diddledanooh, just spooted the credit on lucifer - it’s exec produced by jerry bruckheimer22:23
mappsi thought i saw lucifer mentioned months back..maybe it was a pre air22:24
diddledanI mentioned it a while back when I saw the pre-air trailer22:24
diddledanapparently it’s perfectly acceptible for the fbi to run child-porn sites: http://motherboard.vice.com/read/judge-rules-fbi-running-child-porn-site-for-13-days-was-not-outrageous-conduct-playpen22:34
zmoylan-piand the nsa's giant hoovering up of all data probably is largest child porn collection22:36
