Was marshalling at Pembrey the last couple of days. Had a good time, and apart from a few showers it stayed pretty dry despite the forcast. Was really impressed with Matt Parry (http://www.mattparryracing.co.uk/) in the Intersteps (the chasi that used to be Formula BMW when Vettle was coming through the ranks)

Parry was way ahed of the field the whole weekend - in the final race he just kept pulling pulling out a bigger and bigger lead. Definetly one to watch for the future - and since he's already in +Caterham F1 Team young driver program maybe we'll see a Welshman on the F1 grid at some point in the future

Good article on BBC News based around some comments from former UN weapons inspector Hans Blix

So I've had the Nexus 4 for just over a week now - straight from +Google Play.

But I'm having a lot of problems with it dropping the cellular connectivity. In really strong signal areas where one moment it's got full bars, it can then drop to zero.

The triangle goes empty and then it's a hell of a job getting it to re-establish connection.
Sometimes toggling aeroplane mode helps - sometimes nothing other than a restart (or multiple restarts) restores the signal.

Any one have any idea of a fix for this? It's really frustrating.
As an internet browsing device it's brilliant and I love the feel and the form factor - but it has to operate as a phone too and the moment, at times it's virtually unusable as a phone :(

Anyone have any suggestions for something to help really stubborn tendonitis? Been suffering with it in both arms for over 3 years. Conventional treatment seem to be getting no where. Any suggestions greatly received!

Good to be home, but hugely enjoyed #iwmw13  big thanks to +Brian Kelly all the UKOLN staff and all the speakers. Was a very thought provoking event. Here's hoping that there will be a iwmw14!

Hmm so got 4.4 ota update. Told it to install and it restarted but got an error. Mercifully it booted back into 4.3 OK. Any ideas?

No, it is unlocked, and flashed with a different version of the radio package(.83), as the one that came with 4.3 constantly dropped cellular connection for me, going to sim lockout. Probably why it struggled with the update.

Similar thing happening to me. It loses cellular connection randomly, and if it sits there too long without it it starts complaining that the sim has been removed (when it hasn't) and forcing a restart.

Seems particularly bad when moving between an are with only a 2g signal to one with a 3g signal, and vice versa.

Manually toggling the 2g only network setting helps when you know what the signal is like.

But you have to monitor it constantly or it'll lockout with the sim message again.

Very, very annoying on a phone that's less than a week old!

Any ideas +Google Play ?
 
After the Nexus 4 Android 4.3 update, my phone is often unusable. The signal is really poor and it often goes to the "sim card" locked mode where I have to insert the pincode. I've tried the simcard in a different phone and it all works fine. I've also reset the phone to factory settings (thinking that some apps might cause this) - no success. My phone is running Android 4.3, Build number JWR66V (From Mon June 17). I am wondering if Google is aware of this and will send a fix before I send the phone back to them as unusable. A phone is supposed to be able to make phone calls and this one is pretty useless now.

Interesting future energy development. Of course it's only as "green" as the production of the electricity it uses - but it might just be a better way of using  wind/solar etc.

By using technology such as this to covert energy to a store-able, and movable medium then at least the energy is available "on demand".

It's going to lose a lot of potential energy in all the conversions though.
But still - interesting, and good luck to them
