    My previous one was the E61 and I hated it, but I still kept faith with Nokia. ;)

    I'm overdue an upgrade with Orange (tempted by the Nokia N95 (been a Nokia head since day one)), but their site is so horrendously slow, every other page is 'Ooops' - all well and good being trendy with custom 404's but I'd rather the site just bleedin' worked!!

    Curious, I've never had a problem with their site.

    The site, in general, is OK, it's just when I get onto the https/secure server for the accounts & upgrade shizzle it seems to fall over a lot.

    Oh well, God's way of telling me I don't need a new mobile (he tried to tell me not to buy the Nintendo DS's earlier today, but failed miserably). :( :rolleyes:

    Could you not just go into the orange shop and upgrade? That's what I did (with 3) and it took about 5 minutes.

    Don't drop it, our youngest's DS was dropped less than 1M on to a wooden floor, looked immaculate, no damage to the case or screens. Would not turn on, apparently the processor sits quite high off the main board and can twist the board enough to crack the solder joints on the header socket. Cost me £40 to get it fixed :(

    Using the website for an upgrade? Nah, phone the cancellations department having found an interesting deal elsewhere so you can haggle with them :D

    I used to love Nokias, always had them but when camera phones came things changed. My first camera phone was a nokia 3200 think, vga but they all were then. then things got sophisticated very fast but nokias cameras seemed to get left behind, whereas Sony Ericsson's just got better. It peaked with their W800i, THE finest camera phone I've ever come across. Its well old now, the buttons dont work and its full of dust but the camera still gets used.

    Re: Nokia N95 8GB

    I've done that before, but last time they couldn't or wouldn't find a plan that was anywhere near as cheap as what I already had, whereas I got a new phone on the same deal off their website - Vodaphone, that is, rather than Orange.

    Re: Whoops !! I forgot

    Just to help with your essays Nic I thought the following might be useful.

    Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
    Who was very rarely stable

    Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
    Who could think you under the table

    David Hume could out-consume
    Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel

    And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
    Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel

    There's nothing Nietzche couldn't teach ya
    'Bout the raising of the wrist
    Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed

    John Stuart Mill, of his own free will
    On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill

    Plato, they say, could stick it away
    Half a crate of whiskey every day

    Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle
    Hobbes was fond of his dram

    And René Descartes was a drunken fart
    I drink, therefore I am

    Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed
    A lovely little thinker
    But a bugger when he's pissed






    or maybe not!! :D :D

    The picture thread is now closed. Aside from late-comers (pm me, as usual, to get the picture thread re-opened) that completes the second year of FirstView. [​IMG] Many thanks to all of you who have participated, not only this month but throughout 2008. And a special thanks if you have used the FirstView Gallery for hosting your contributions - that will help us to make sure that in years to come the record remains as complete as possible.

    FirstView will continue in 2009, but in the meantime look out for the 2008 FirstReView, which I shall be putting together over the next couple of weeks or so. Hopefully it will be posted here in the run up to Christmas. I can't promise it will be riveting stuff, but if you've enjoyed participating in FirstView you might enjoy a little reminder of all our thrilling lives over the last twelve months. :D
