It won't be anything special; the days of channels getting glorious nostagic send-offs are long gone. Most likely, at the end of the last scheduled programme, there will be one last block of...

I was afraid of that... My TV's remote broke, so we're using a cheap universal remote that is functional, but won't control the TV's internal menus. Oh well, I'll just have to live with it. Thanks...

Cable picture overscans and cuts off edges

I'm using a standard-def 4:3 TV, and no matter what setting I have it on - 4:3 Normal, Widescreen or Letterbox - the top and bottom sides of the picture are cut off. This is most evident on the...

A short-term solution is to use https://www.rapidshare.com - but obviously this isn't ideal, and when Virgin get wind of this they'll probably block that one too.

Is anyone else getting a blank page from Rapidshare.com? DownForEveryone reports "It's just you..." when queried, so apparently it's up, but I'm not getting anything. Other Virgin customers have...

It looks like a lot of VH1 Classic's programmes have moved over to VH1 - this probably means that MTV Classic will be a dumping ground for "Classic" (read: about two years old") MTV programming.

They will do anything to keep you as a customer. That's why they make you speak to a real person to order the PAC - so that they can try to convince you to stay. Often you can drop hints and get them...

Best network for 3G internet on my phone?

I recently bought an (unlocked) iPhone, but my SIM card is very old and won't do 3G, and T-Mobile won't replace it without charging me 10 for the privelege. So I'm thinking of moving networks.
