All the best cartoons were shown on Saturday mornings either during Going Live / Live& Kicking or the ITV equivalent; X Men, Spiderman, The Racoons, Animaniacs, Batman: TAS, Rugrats, Mysterious Cities of Gold and a heap of others I probably forget.

Then there was Disney Club on Sunday which had Gummi Bears, Tailspin, etc

How many solar panels would be required to 'pave over death valley'? Millions? Billions? how many miles of cable would be required? How long would this feat take? So long that by the time you install the last panel you're having to replace the first again? If you're going to make a suggestion like that, how about you include some math to show this is actually possible? I'll get you started, Death Valley is 3000square miles. Off you go.

Yeah, free at point of entry maybe. Unless you're suspected of having some critical illness, try getting an MRI scan that doesn't involve a 3-6month wait. Of course, they'll happily take £500 off you to speed it along.

It's more sinister than that. By going down the road of always online DRM they ensure that only one Origin account holder can only play one game from their Origin library at any given time.

If all their future games were to have this DRM then you can't play Game X whilst your spouse or siblings play Game Y on another computer in the house.
