Re: HDMI Leads - £1 in poundland (UK)

<t>I used to have my old tower hooked up to my HDTV a while ago. I tried a cheaper discount store HDMI lead on it and the picture was horrifyingly bad.<br/> <br/> I had to go out and get a Technica lead from Tesco when they were still doing them, about £15 I think and it was a huge improvement.<br/>...

I'm busy learning that language now in my spare time. I'm still struggling with it, but I ...

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

<t>I'd second anything by Pratchett. The Discworld books are often sadly overlooked or dismissed by the highbrow tolkien crowd (their loss). Terry's sense of humour is blacker and drier than coal, and always an easy read.<br/> <br/> For Sci-Fi I'd recommend some of the Warhammer 40,000 books. Not al...
