  1. Because the solution to Sky getting paid less per ad is to create more pipelines for ads.
  2. You're right, looks like someone copy pasted the IIS config from beta and didn't change the http redirect.
  3. Some random things... Make sure the photographer is going to give you the full set of digital stills not just charge you for prints (try http://www.kesouthall.co.uk/ - she's excellent). Consider insurance if you're laying out a lot of cash up front for venue / caterers. Depending on how many guests and how much they're likely to drink you might be better off buying your own wine / fizz and paying corkage per person. Find out how many bar staff will be working and make sure there are enough - few things more annoying than large bar queues with one person serving. You can usually get a venue to put some particular drinks on if you ask and if your mates are anything like mine you can always have a limited amount of booze served before the meal and not open the bar until afterwards. When you're trying to budget, allow _a lot_ of contingency and don't forget some places will quote you ex vat. Figure out as a couple what you are prepared to compromise on and what you're not. You can negotiate prices for many things, but the earlier you are booking the easier this is - once you're in the same year as the wedding forget it. If there's any difficulty deciding who to invite/not invite or seating plans - be selfish. It's your (plural) day. If you're anything like me the feeling of relief once the speeches are over will be sensational. If you make one, make it thankful, a little amusing but mainly short. Best of luck.
  4. Thought some of you might find this photo of a blue tit getting treated appropriately by a robin amusing.
  5. Dave Grohl is a ******* legend.
  6. Have you watched it throbbing on the electronic advertising hoardings? Makes me giggle every time. I wonder what marketing genius designed the Bristol Sport lady bits logo.
  7. If they're good enough they're English enough.
  8. Pleased to see a better site, built by a local agency, not festooned with hugely annoying ads.
  9. Soft pen, softer sending off and still losers. Southgate is ****. The FA want shooting. England are shite.
  10. Makita brushless 18v. Get cheap Chinese batteries they're just as good and a third of the price.
  11. Why should anybody be obliged not to cause offence? What people take offence to is entirely subjective and up to them, pretty much anything you do could offend somebody. People start using definitions like "right minded people" and "reasonable people" and before you know it entire trains of thought that run contrary to norm are banned. That's an entirely awful law by the way and you can see that by the way it's been used since then.
  12. I think you're missing the point so I'll restate it: Nobody should be under any obligation not to offend others, and nobody should be policing the voluntary taking of offence, because it would be stupid and dangerous to do so. I agree racism is abhorrent. You may choose to be offended by it. That does not mean that other things you choose to be offended by are in the same category.
  13. No, that's not what I'm saying at all. Racism is a crime. But racism means actually discriminating unfairly, not just mean words. There are a whole bunch of things people choose to find offensive which aren't crimes and those are what I'm talking about. Swearing for example.
  14. I'm ok with banning people who use nazi salutes because it's a pretty good indicator that they're morons I'd rather not share a football stadium with but that's a purely selfish point of view. I'm not sure lifetime bans are appropriate because ideally you want people to learn not to be dipshits. However in general PC is exactly about "causing offence" and we absolutely shouldn't be protecting people from offence. Causing offence is not wrong - it doesn't even happen actually - it's taking offence that's the problem, and if you start down the path where you try and protect everyone from anything they choose to be offended by and you end up in a very dangerous place.
  15. Not sure how this was ever a police matter but if a manager is ignoring formal complaints and company policy the next step is to (with fair warning) go over his head.
