The whole Sprawl Trilogy was well plotted & characterised & embedded with quotable phrases & invented meanings. I still read Gibson but struggled a little with his latest. There is a good BBC radio dramatisation of Neuromancer and also an interesting graphic novel version, unfinished.
Total nonsense! The EU is doing what the USA should have done a decade ago. If the US regulators hadn't been spineless & in bed with big business.
You Americans talk so big - when someone else shows cohones you can only scream & stamp your little feet.
I'm proud of Europe & the EU here. We'll get Windows bundled with Opera & Firefox yet.
The Tidbinbilla Tracking Station (now known as CDSCC) was opened in 1965 and is the only NASA tracking station in Australia still in operation. During the Apollo program, Tidbinbilla was used for tracking the Apollo Lunar Module.

I watch a lot of fansubbed anime & find I prefer Zoomplayer http://inmatrix.com/
I also am using a 6 year old IBM laptop that isn't too powerful & I find Zoom uses less memory & less processing power. Therefore less lag & better rendering.
I believe this is due to the fact that the actual Zoom player is a sort of framework and all the codecs are external.
It used to be a beast to set-up the codecs but now it has an excellent codec installer which downloads the latest needed codecs (you have control over which) and installs them, usually perfectly.
The only thing I found recently was that I couldn't get it to play Flash
Zoom is well-tuned for speed & accuracy and handles subtitles beautifully with complete positioning & display options including font selection.
There is even an U3 version that runs from a USB stick http://software.u3.com/Product_Details.aspx?ProductId=114
It is of course a paid Windows application so I guess everyone here is going to put it down.
A1 - you got there while I was still dithering how to say it. I could add some personal worries like how HUAWEI software's in every darn internet cellphone dongle in the UK (and it's really good too).
No-one's mentioned the Chinese governments vast expenditure on active (read - aggressive) cybersecurity - is it not PC anymore to say this?
I'm in London UK & all for your US nerds defending our cyber frontiers 'cos we certainly can't! BO rocks!
