Re: Windows 8

My laptop has somehow lost its secure boot keys during the upgrade to 8.1. I now have a watermark on the desktop telling me that secure boot isn't configured correctly and the secure boot option has disappeared from the BIOS. Same here. Is it Asus?

Re: OI PEOPLE OF TOP WHO WORK AT THE BBC

Accessing iPlayer through a proxy is dodgy and likely to be unreliable. Hell, it's even hard work getting it to run on the internal proxy. Can't use h264 and HTML5 due to licencing rights. We have to be seen to protect the content and that means DRM, which those technologies can't provide right now....
