Forgive me for steering this thread back on topic... ;) ...but FYI I'm running a 2009 Mac Mini, with two 20 inch screens (1600x1200) connected to the Mini's two video-out ports. When I start Oolite, the game appears on the right-hand screen while the left-hand screen remains black.

However, I do live in another suffolk (you can guess which) and happen to know how it's pronounced. :wink:
Fair enough Wackyman, but we Brits have heard our fair share of visitors struggling to pronounce our place names. And George W. Bush asking which "state" Wales was in.

DH, I was in Bognor Regis on Saturday when a B-17 flew over. It was green with the single white-star-in-a-blue circle on the underside of one wing. I think that would be USAAF colours rather than USAF colours. Then on Sunday, I was walking in Eartham Woods when an Avro Vulcan flew over. I can't reme...

I think possibly as one of the few people who has actually read the digital britain report I can safely say that 2Mbit/s minimum that Gordon has set out as the bare minimum is never going to happen, not by any method laid out in the report anyway.

I was with Virgin when I lived in the NE of England, but here in sunny Sussex, nobody's dug up the roads to lay fibre optic.
