Multiple regulators have begun to take an interest in broadband quality metrics. These efforts are a strong hint that the regulatory approaches proposed by “net neutrality” campaigners are insufficient. That is because “neutrality” is too weak to give broadband buyers the service quality protection that they need.Based on my conversations with Dr Neil Davies of Predictable Network Solutions Ltd, I present here the eight reasons why “neutrality” c...

Something is seriously messed up when teachers, who aren't that well paid themselves, are using their own money to provide basic stuff for their pupils.

Given how (in)accurate most people are reporting it to be, it might as well be.

It's basically the difference between a pitch-shifter (which is what autotune is) and a vocoder, which basically modulates your voice against a waveform.

In the former, it sounds more like speech as it's basically just playing things faster, like speeding up a tape deck. In the latter case it sounds more robotic as you are basically using the speech waveform to modify a synthesiser note.

A great example of vocoder type technology is the guitar "talkbox" popularised by Peter Frampton, Bon Jovi, and others.

https://youtu.be/2JNFIyXyfY4

With these, the audio output from the guitar is piped into the players mouth via a tube, and it's this which makes the sound rather than their vocal chords. But as the sound is going via their mouth they can form words and other vocal noises to shape the guitar sound.

For the effect in this post I used a vocoder app with a MIDI input and played the notes on a keyboard as you were speaking.

Selfish little prick parking their non-Electric Freelander in the EV charging bay in Bracknell Waitrose when there were plenty of other parking places available a few metres away.

Its easy enough to adapt a schrader valve cap with a hole in top and a pin inside, when attached it creates a deservedly inconvenient slow puncture. If they are really stupid they wont even work it out and/or use a latex spray to fill the tyre up, then put the modified valve back for extra fun ;)

A lovely little pub. Reasonable beer, friendly staff, and real fires on colder days, but the food and atmosphere isn't as good as it was a few years ago.

I know this is just a KFC but we have just had awesome service from Monia.

Easily the best coffee in Reading and, perhaps, in the area. Nowhere else have I seen staff that take such care over the making of a coffee, and the results are amazing. They also make a lot of their own food, including fantastic brownies, blondies (made with white chocolate) and utterly amazing granola bars.

We were alerted to this little gem of a tavern by another guest in the hotel we were staying in. It's slightly shabby, but very atmospheric decor and aspect (it's in a basement, down a narrow set of stairs between two shops) may seem a little intimidating, but the welcome was warm and genuine. They serve excellent local beers and basic, but high-quality local food and, of course, absinthe. The clientèle are a mixture of what appear to be regular locals and travellers and visitors, but the place doesn't have an ounce of pretension about it. Highly recommended!

Great and constantly updating range of real ales which normally include some local ones. Updated Dec 2013: Back again for a family meal. The Castle never disappoints. Great food, fantastic beer and attentive staff. This place still deserves the 5 stars originally awarded.

Average food at fairly standard prices for this sort of fare, but the service was pretty dreadful with the staff ignoring us at one point and we had to go and ask for the menu. The "unlimited" fries went inedibly hard as they cooled down and it was hard to imagine the circumstance where anyone would actually eat a full dishful yet alone ask for more. Decor was OK but everyone in our party felt the theming was very odd, being a mixture between American Rock culture and Middle Eastern.

In most ways this is a typical Starbucks. What makes this stand out from the crowd and makes me choose this branch over any of the other coffee shops in Chippenham is the staff. A more friendly, honestly cheerful, and helpful bunch you will be hard pushed to find anywhere else. These guys and girls knew my name 2yrs ago, we'll before the latest "tell us your name" policy was introduced. Visiting this branch isn't just about getting a coffee and a muffin; its more like catching up with old friends.
