Save as in "use BBC's downloadable iPlayer programme to save files to desktop and watch for 30 days", or save as in "download and keep forever". If the latter is true, let me know ;) :lol:

Download and keep forever! If it works, I'll forward you the link. :D

Ben - I think you can transfer them around, but usually after a certain amount of time, you can't view them any more.

Californication S1 and S2.

I know M-C's a big fan, which is good enough recommendation for me.

Are you sure you want to uninstalle Google Chrome? Was it something we said?

I downloaded a piece of software called Photomatix today, and have been using it in 'trial' mode. To convert it to the full program, you have to buy a licence key which is about £70. However, if you have an email address with .ac in it, as I do, you can get 60% off. :shock: So I got it for twenty something quid instead. :D

Just so you know, I just pulled down a 1.4 gig game demo in about 40 minutes. Upgrade your connection for the love of God, passable broadband speeds are cheap. Even my 1-20mb/1mb connection is more than affordable.

I think it's because IA has just moved house and is temporarily using mobile Broadband - or possibly downloading it on her phone.

My Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip torrent finally came down within the last week. Unfortunately I still have a sour taste in my mouth from Sports Night so I'm not chomping at the bit to see this straight away. I need to cleanse my palette a bit first...

sigh!

I will tell you not to expect The West Wing. I think that may have been part of your problem with Sports Night. Studio 60 is good but it's nowhere near West Wing level.

I personally think Sports Night was one of the very best things on television during it's time. It was my introduction to Joshua Malina, Peter Krause and Felicity Huffman. Loved all them in it. Also, Lisa Edelstein played a bit part in a couple of episodes.

I think with the exception of Frasier you and I could never get together and watch anything but drama. We tend to be quite different in our likes of comedy.

Yep, The Office is another example of our different tastes isn't it.

I know I've been spoiled by The West Wing - Cakey keeps reminding me how much I disliked just about everything else I saw after completing The Sopranos last year - everything else just seemed to pale by comparison.

Hopefully I'll enjoy Studio 60... more than Sports Night, but I do plan to give that another chance when I can muster the enthusiasm. Sorkin is too talented a writer to produce sub-par TV programmes.

I plan on watching some of the Dexter episodes I have on my laptop during my 4 hour flight to Vegas next week. I've only seen one S2 episode so far.

God, after seeing that first ep of season 2 I think I went through the rest in 24 hours! How can you resist wanting to know what happens next?

That's why S2 is my favourite season of Dexter - it pulls you in from the first episode and doesn't let go until the finale. There are times you really think the game is up for Dex...

I got sidetracked my NCIS. Mark Harmon is easier on my eyes than Michael Hall! Not that Hall is hard on the eyes, Mark is just better!
