I've had this stuck in my head for weeks.  A weekend of kill or cure is in my future.

Last year we bought an automated freezer that cost well over £650,000 which is controlled by a Windows XP machine.  We've been promised a Windows 7 update for months.

This machine needs to be networked which is why the update is important, but we have non-networked machines connected to lab equipment happily running Windows 98!

Ah, that's sweet.  You don't understand why I wouldn't respect the options of someone completely anonymous on the internet.

Hi all,  I'm looking to tap into the wisdom of the crowds here, and ask you to help me make a decision.

I'm currently using a Note 2 on Giff Gaff.  Very happy with the phone, network & tariff.  I'm on there £12/mo unlimited data (but no tethering), unlimited text and a 100 mins.

The truly unlimited data including tethering on Three is very appealing.  Add in the free 4G (which they actually have in Leicester, although not near home, work or the city centre so will probably stick with the non-LTE Not 2 for now) and the international roaming it's looking better and better.  So what I need help with is should I...

1. Stick with what you've got.  Giff Gaff will release there 4G plans soon so just risk the rumours of the unlimited tethering on three going are false?

2. Move over to the Three One plan SIM only (my note 2 is SIM free) at £20/mo for 12 months.

3. Move over to the Three One plan with a Lumia 925 for £28/mo over 24 months.  The Phone is then £192.  I can sell my L 620 to a guy at work easy enough so it's even less than that.

4. Wait to see what happens at MWC (but you can be waiting for next tech forever!)

So, what do you think?  Vote with +1's in the comments or if you have a better idea I'm happy to hear it.

Cheers

+Gavin Whyman I didn't say their coverage was bad - they still have very good GSM coverage. Their 3G infrastructure is dire though, which is why they've always been expensive and tight with their allowances I suspect. You spoke about upgrading to LTE which made me think that you were keen on the speed boost, which is why I brought up O2's not-too-wonderful record. If you just want good coverage generally then O2 and Giffgaff should be fine.

Just seen someone walking down the corridor with a 3.5" floppy disk. I work at in a UK top 20 university. What on earth is going on?

You've no doubt seen "Hot Tub Time Machine", well we've got a "Centrifuge Time Machine".  It's a lot less useful and sexy unfortunately.
