+Google Chrome will now warn users when websites have fake download buttons or other fake elements. Take that horrible, shady websites.
Let's not beat around the bush. Ads -- although a necessary evil to keep sites like this up and running -- can be plenty annoying in their own right. But it's only when you have purposefully deceitful ads that try and trick users into clicking them (whether it's outside content made to look like it came from the site), that you really cross the line. Google feels the same way and in an update to the Safe Browsing protection offered in Chrome, th...

I already have the 6P. But even with this discount, I still can't get over the price. I could only ever see myself getting one for £100 max and that's not going to happen anytime soon!

Red Dwarf XII
Some of the many good things about working on the twelfth series of Red Dwarf is that it is totally absorbing, hugely time consuming and utterly exhausting.
One of the frustrations is not being able to talk about it or post pictures of the amazing things we're working with, the incredible sets, the fantastic costumes and wonderful actors.
When you do something that is essentially showing off in rubber, you want people to see what you're up to.
For entirely understandable reasons none of us want to post spoilers, and not only the team directly working on the series, the audiences that fill the seats every Friday night have been brilliant, not posting sneaky snaps on the social medias, not blowing storylines on the twitters.
For those not aware, we have already shot Red Dwarf XI which we finished just before Christmas, we are now well into series XII.
Both these series will go out on Dave in the UK 2016 and 2017.
I don't have any firm news about wider global distribution but I'm confident many PBS stations in the USA will be showing the series, it'll be on in Canada, Australia and new Zealand, the Czech Republic and possibly, don't quote me on this, eventually on Netflix.
As soon as I have more news I'll blab on about it like a recently re-charged mechanoid with a WD40 overflow.
Below is a massive spoiler, yes, it's a picture of the Red Dwarf set. Fnaaaar fnaaaar.
