    Any Advice on trying to join the RAF ?

    go into your local AFCO. They'll be able to talk you throught the careers available to you. I'm unsure about the RAF atm, but the navy are holding back on new logistics recruits due to the sheer number of applicants (at least for officers, not 100% sure on ratings). So ask what sort of timeframe...

    Can I do better for £300?

    Just double check they're alright with a 250GB HDD. If they're just watching DVDs shouldn't be an issue. But downloading a few films and having a decent music collection can quickly eat up a disk that size.

    Spec me a "on the road" laptop

    I've got a studio XPS13 which I can highly recommend. There is a 9 cell available for it which should extend the battery over 3 and a half hours.

    Stopping cramp

    Well I just drink squash with added salt and sugar when swimming. Is a lucozade really going to be that much better. Its only really swimming I get this problem, running is no big deal and the muscles are well conditioned. Think it'll be a case of another 10 mins more thorough stretching and...

    Plug pulled on suspected pirates - Karoo

    I still can't get my head around the fact that BT have had to open up their network to all-comers, yet Kingston seems immune to any sort of threats. If there was ever a case for the competition comission to look into telecoms it's in Hull. As for this point, merely suspecting someone of...

    F1 rival series confirmed?

    Fantastic news, it's about time Bernie and his cronies were taken out of the equation. It's a sad day when multi-national companies are the ones protecting the integrity of the sport against the wishes of the governing body. British GP at silverstone it is

    laptops advancement this year?

    It does get toasty, no doubt about that (not uncomfortably though). The battery on mine lasts around 2 and a half hours (keep the screen bright and wireless enabled), up to around 3 and a half in battery saving mode. The 9 cell will just slot in the battery bay but will make the laptop a bit...

    would this work? (credit cards...interest free)

    a cash transaction will be for example using it at a cashpoint. This was always a good way to make money (credit card blagging), moving between 0% cards and pocketing the interest, however nearly all of them will be interest free, but charge an 'admin fee' (typically about 3%) which wipes it...

    Punching bags & boxing gloves

    If you are punching corrctly you will break your hands. Its not rocket science the bones in your hand aren't going to take the sort of punishment you give a punchbag. If you're starting off fine, but i'll assure you that if you punch with any sort of technique and power you will get hurt. Why do...

    Punching bags & boxing gloves

    if you're punching a reasonably heavy bag properly you WILL break bones in your hand. The amount of stupid kids/chavvy teens we see in the gym doing this past few years is unbelievable. Why do you think boxers (and most contact MA) have strappings under their gloves? Get yourself a nice pair of...
