  1. Agætis Byrjun is the only Sigor Ros album i have. I like it alot.
  2. yes, very few new laptops do not have built in 10/100 LAN. Some even have GigaLAN.
  3. For £500 you can get a desktop pc that can run anygame on the market. The laptop at that cost wouldn't run the graphic intensive games. Only buy a laptop if you need portability.
  4. They own the brand name, yes
  5. Esso are Exxon Mobil. Statoil own Jet and several others 28373[/snapback] It says buy Jet petrol at the top tbh, so it can't be them. 28451[/snapback] Statoil bought Jet stations in Eire in 1996. So the email of irish origon is incorrect. http://www.statoil.com/STATOILCOM/SVG00990...125664E004D48F9
  6. So the chances of a successful viral marketing campaign coming from the source directly to a recipient are slim. In fact working with the figures that this lad discusses in his email reaching fruition they're one in one hundred thousand. 28426[/snapback] Yes i'd agree with that. If it reaches a few thousand its done very well. Which is again why its not an ad. The only way it would be an ad was if as i'd said it was directed from a Viral ad company where by they would spam the hell out of whatever list they start with or if it was sent from many employees at a large company.
  7. Viral ad is spam. Simple as. It works by initially one person/company writing and sending it. Then someone who recieved it being a gullible sod forwarding it many more people. ad infinitum. If no one forwards from the initial send(s) then it dies.
  8. Yep, I don't think that's the only flaw with the mail, the thing is I don't think the originator is genuine, I think it's quite plausible that this originated in some advertising agency or other. The writer is up to date enough to realise that Shell are no longer one of the big two and yet seems to show a complete lack of knowledge in Economics in general and as you've pointed out, particularly in the oil market. I just wish people in general were this active about buyer power in general and not just when they're feeling a bit down about a minor issue. But then I'd be living in a utopia
  9. Have you missed my point by any chance? 28362[/snapback] I guess my reply was more aimed at the person who wrote the email. They are targetting the wrong area, certainly in this country and expect the same is true elsewhere in europe. 28368[/snapback] I got the email from Ireland. I live in France. I'm going to take a wild guess you're living in England. Amazing t'internet isn't it? 28374[/snapback] The internet is indeed an amazing tool. And as since this board is about an english football team and about 90%+ of its users are based in england do

  12. You do realise that Petrol in the UK is among the cheapest in the world pre-tax. Petrol is selling at about 16p/litre the rest is tax.
  13. No he's taking him to meet his granny for a good time
  14. Keanu Reeves - Ted Logan. The only part he can play well, infact he was still playing that part in the matrix and every other movie he's done...
  15. That was a quality show. I loved the sketch where they had all these people driving into a ferry (the pope, the queen, the old hag thatcher etc) for afew minutes. Then it cut to the other end and you saw aload of cars driving off the back of the ferry into the water... genius.
  16. I watched Around the world in 80 days. The steve coogan and jackie chan version. It seems that they looked at the title of the book and then threw it away. The films watchable but nothing special.
  17. Seems to work a treat like. How long before this thing blows up now...
  18. Real player/quicktime player can play them, they just have to download a few codecs first.
  19. 27960[/snapback] Don't slag it till you hear it, It's Great
  20. William Shatner - Common People. Its soooo bad its good
  21. I used to be that they went on sale 2 weeks prior to the game, don't know if that still the case though.
  22. If You've Been Watching The Scottish League Recently You Will Know That Its Quite Exciting At The Moment 22051[/snapback] Not from a Livi fans point of view, its just as depressing in that league as it is here...
  23. THey'll be reading it now, they'll be seeing the meet up thread and planning to stop us now. We even had folk in from germany so its bound to get them to terror alert yellow at least....
  24. Criminal Investigation Authority? 22043[/snapback] Central Intelligence Agency i believe.
  25. I personally don't get dance music, i've been totally pissed out my head in a club and still been unable to dance to it. Kinda defeats its purpose. But worst of all is gangsta rap. I am under the impression that the key part of rap is the lyrics, yet when you listen to them, they are the biggest pile of shite i've ever subjected my ears too.
