  • Is there a metal band genre database anywhere?

    I've accepted the fact that people insist on putting metal bands into some kind of genre.

  • Windows 7 pdf download problems?

    If I click on a pdf file link (IE8, Chrome, Firefox 4, Acrobat Reader 9.0) I get a box with Acrobat Reader in the title with a blue question mark in the box and an OK button. The pdf doesn't display. Is there some file association link I should be enabling and if so where is it?

  • The UK Census form asks how many cars/vans you have, but not motorcycles?

    Not exactly representative of the motoring public. That and I think they should have included caravans too for "Top Gear" reasons.

  • Is the "Ped Egg" advert the most awful thing to watch on morning TV when you're trying to eat?

    Watching the Ped Egg advert (foot scraper for people who haven't seen it) puts you right off your egg sandwich when it's shown on morning TV http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoHMd1yOB... the UK version is probably a tad more gross.

  • Would it be unreasonable to split music players and iPods into separate sections?

    Seems like 80% of the questions in music and music players are questions about iPods. Would it not be reasonable to have iPods in a separate section all to themselves. BQ. Considering how troublesome iPods appear to be why would anybody would want one?

  • Why does film look like "film"?

    Film is allegedly a zillion more pixels than say HD TV but video on TV looks more like real life but film doesn't. What subtle point am I missing?

  • What's your success rate with online translator programs?

    I've found Google Translate and similar, e.g. Babelfish, work well on some languages but other languages come out as English "but not as we know it Jim" (Spock). Are online translators really that bad or is it a case of garbage in garbage out or that they can't handle idiomatic language?

  • What's the cheapest and easiest way to send money from the US to the UK?

    Specifically US account to UK account, preferably electronically. Western Union ($65) and most US banks charge astronomical rates and I don't know if IMO's are still available and what they are likely to cost but that's still an additional paper transaction at the UK end.
