The BBC iPlayer is brilliant for catching up on anything you've missed on TV or Radio over the past month and it's very easy to navigate and use. However for me and I'm guessing quite a few other people too, if you've got a computer/laptop that's a couple of years old then when you're watching something on the iPlayer it lags, stutters and then goes on a mental buffering style loop whilst causing your computer to run at 100% CPU. It's highly annoying.

Ahh, booze, cheese and politics... no, not the forthcoming general election, but Eurovision - the yearly singing competition for countries within Europe (and Israel ... and Cyprus ... and Armenia ... and Morocco ... and Australia.)

Ever since being a youngster on the internet, I've always enjoyed playing around with soundboards and especially when the (unofficial) Chris Moyles website came out with a program that assigned various sound effects, jingles and what-not to your keyboard keys, I started getting right into them.
