      How many little bets have you had with your mates down the pub about football results or sweeps on the Grand National? If you can say say that you like a little gamble, but nothing too extreme, then flutter.com is the site for you. Joining is easy and quick and you also get a free tenner put into your account for you. Registering take only a couple of minutes and all you need are the basic things like name and address, e-mail address, username and password but they also need your debit/credit card details, they need these because they are a gambling site and need to verify you are over 18 and also because that £10 won't last forever, your card will be used to deposit money into your flutter account, flutter use the latest in secure servers and explain this if you worry about giving your card details over the internet. Now to the good bit, Flutter.com are not bookmakers, you do not bet against them you just bet against the flutter members, you can bet on anything from football results to television programmes, e.g. I bet a flutter member that West Ham would not beat Manchester United 3-1, they didn't and I won £10. There are no set odds because the flutter members set the stakes and you choose the best flutter that suits you. When you have placed a bet you have the option to send the member you've bet against a message, this can put a bit of fun into it as well. If you win your flutter you are notified by e-mail and the winning go straight into your flutter account, so if you choose your flutters well you could turn the free £10 in your account into hundreds and you can request to cash in either some of your account money or all of it back into your bank account. The web site is very easy to use and navigate but can be a little slow at times but it is a lot of fun and can make some friends on there to have one on one bets with week in week out. So if you like a little light hearted be
      t with your mates why not take a trip to flutter, get a free tenner and bet away.

      I had my computer hacked a few months ago and as i am not exactly a computer genius i was wondering why everytime i logged onto the internet this same hacker knew i was online. I then found out it is because he/she had installed a Trojan Horse onto my computer and everytime i logged onto the internet he/she was informed. I tried to run a virus scan but when it found the trojan it said it couldn't remove it. Then i found The Cleaner, this easy to download and install programme will find almost any Trojan Horse there is and succesfully remove it. It also has a usefull list of all trojans with a description of what each one will do to your computer if gone undetected. With new Trojans being detected each day, The Cleaner's database is updated regularly in order to help you more. I consider myself lucky that i was hacked by what i would say a beginner, but without a good firewall and the cleaner who knows what could happen to your computer. This is a must have on your computer if you want your information and computer safe.

      I've been using Blackstar for all my DVD and video purchases for about 12 months and find it to be very quick and easy. You don't have to be a memeber to look round the site, but have to join to buy from them. Once you have registered, the usual stuff like name, address and e-mail address, you are ready to buy. The site is very easy to navigate around, if you know exactly which film you are looking for, or even an actor or director, just type the name in the search area and Blackstar will show you the results. If you just want to browse there thousands of titles you can use the browse option, the categorys are set out by genre, Drama, Thriller, Comedy etc and the films are shown in alphabetical order, together with a brief review of the film. You can search for new releases weeks in advance and can even ask Blackstar to find a deleted title for you. Items in stock are usually shipped the same day and should arrive at your door within 2-3 days, you can also check on the progress of your order if the film was not available at the time of ordering. Blackstar also have a reward scheme, you get one star for every £10 spent and can exchange them for a wide range of goods from the minimum of 8 stars for cd wipes up to 915 stars for a digitheatre home cinema sound system, you can buy gift vouchers and even have your video or DVD giftwrapped (for a fee of £2). The Blackstar support team are fantastic and usually reply to your e-mail within a few hours, overall Blackstar is the easiest way to shop for films, thats unless you want to take a trip to the shops that is.

      I had ICQ on my computer for a while and at first i thought it was good, but after a while the novelty does wear off and this is where i found the problems with highly used service. ICQ, or I seek you, is an instanst messenger, friend finder, sms service, chat community etc all rolled into one, with so many features it is a big programme that runs in the background on your computer, it informs you of when friends come on-line and has a load of other features as well. With ICQ being so big it can slow your computer down quite a lot,not to say the download of this programme can take about half an hour. So why do we need it? People say it tells you when your friends are online, so do all of the other messenger services such as Yahoo or MSN. You can find people around the world who share your interests, well you can with most messengers. You can send free SMS messages, you can at www.Lycos.co.uk Most of the features on ICQ you can get on most messenger services now and there programmes are much smaller and run much better than ICQ. Also ICQ is a big back door into your computer for hackers as most hacking software such as netbus and subseven have an ICQ alert feature on them, basically the hackers type in your ICQ number into there software and whenever ICQ starts up on your computer it also tells the hackers that you have just come on-line. When it first came out ICQ was probably the best on the internet but most sites and messengers now offer all the same services but with smaller and more secure services, for instance Hotmail now scans all of your e-mails attachments for viruses, whereas if you've just met a new friend on ICQ and they send you a file (maybe a picture) and you choose to receive it, it could be a virus hidden in a file and you would never know until your computer is completely useless. ICQ was a good idea, but i think that there are better services out there which are
      much more effective, safer and a lot easier to use.

          Disadvantages

          American History X is a extremely powerful movie about a man who leads a gang of people in a hate against the black race. Directed by Tony Kaye, this film is told through the eyes on Danny (Edward Furlong) about his brother Derek (Edward Norton)who is seeking retribution for his fathers death and takes it upon himself to lead a gang of people who firmly believe in him and is greatly respected. As things start to turn nasty Derek ends up in prison for murder and his release is eagerly awaited by his family and friends. Unbeknown to all Derek comes out of prison a changed man, his prison life has re-habilitated him and is ashamed of his past, this is when he start fighting to save his brother and family from the violence he has brought down on them. Edward Norton is fantasic in this film and could easily put it down to one of his best performance yet. The DVD features included on this film contain deleted scenes which are well worth watching.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The Usual Suspects will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Winner of two Academy Awards this film has all the qualities needed for a film you will never forget, directed by Bryan Singer (Apt Pupil and Public Access), The Usual Suspects is about Five criminals who are framed and brought together in a police line-up investigating a cime in Long Beach Harbour which left 27 people dead and only one survivor who is too terified to tell the police anything. Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey)plays the main roll of the five suspects and tells the police of a man who is feared by every underground organisation, Keyser Soze. Keyser Soze has never been seen and contacts all of his employers through his lawyer (Pete Poselthwaite) and because of his develish reputation everybody visited is too scared to decline his orders. Throughout the story told by Verbal Kint, he tells of the orders given to him and the other four in a multi-million heist that ended in disaster, an explosion that killed everybody but the five suspects and one witness. The conclusion to this story is probably the cleverest i have ever seen and will have you scratching your head in disbalief. Kevin Spacey shows his excellent acting ability and stars alongside a brilliant cast including Stephen Baldwin and Kevin Pollack. This is definately a must see twice film for two reasons, the first is you will be so shocked by one of the most talked about endings for years that you need to see if you have missed any hidden clues somwhere in the film, the second is that you will never get tired of watching this excellent film.

          Nokia have done it again, there updated model of the 3210. The 3310 is not only smaller and thinner but is crammed with extra features. The very easy to use menu is the same and you can still change the front and back, but how many times have you missed a call because you were in a busy place and didn't hear your phone ring? With the new Nokia there is a vibrating alert, never miss that important call again, there are also the 50 ring tones available but how many people like to jazz up there phone with there very own personalised tone? You can programme up to 8 different ringtones by either composing your own or having one sent to you via sms. For all you Nokia games addicts they have brought out a couple of extra games for you, the snake games has been improved, a memory game and a space invader game. It is also voice activated so you don't have to search through your phone book for that important phone number. It has a few screensavers programmed in and you can also set up your phone to your own specifications in the profiles menu. The phone is free if you take out a contract or if you prefer a pay-as-you-go it is retailing for around £99. It is also dual band so the phone will work on any network you wish. Overall this phone is very stylish, easy to use and cheap. What more could you ask for???????

          Being a new member on Dooyoo and a beginner at this opinion writing(and i'm sure i'm not the only one)it is proving quite tricky to write the perfect opinion. I know that Dooyoo and even Dooyoo members give advice on writing the perfect opinion but i feel that if someone has taken the time to read and even rate your opinion then why not give the author a little comment? I don't exactly mean a big essay but maybe just a little line stating that you either you agree with them or whether it was a good, too short or not enough info. You could also let them know where they are going wrong in there writing technique or give a little bit of advice on what they could improve on. This would give new users more incentive to write more opinions and help them to write better ones. Everybody needs a bit of guidance and with other peoples comments, whether good or bad, you are letting them you know that you are helping. If you give a bad comment criticism is probably the best way to learn, as you always learn from your mistakes. New members and novices at this would be gratefull of any help that experienced members could give them, if they are trying to write opinions, but are not writing them up to sctratch then why not share your knowledge with them to make there time here more enjoyable. Thank you.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Essex Boys is based on a true story and book written by Bernard O'Mahony, who was a member of a gang which was tricked and brutally killed in Essex. This true life crime left 3 men dead in a landrover in which a lad called Billy (Wizz) Reynolds was driving. Billy was hired by this gang of drug barons to drive the members around from nightclub to nightclub, most of which this gang ran. With every gang comes a rival gang and things turn nasty when people step on other peoples toes, the consequences can be fatal, in which this case they were. After reading in the newspaper about this horrific crime i really wanted to see this film when it was released. The content of the film was not as expected, the film only really touched all the aspects of how the event really happened, but then again is was only meant to be lightly based on real events. Sean Bean, who i thought has played fantastic roles in the past, really let himself down in this film, his usual passion and acting ability really did not shine through this time. I think i expected too much from this film, with all the publicity, and of course the book, which made this story the talk of the country, i was somewhat dissapointed. Having said that i would recommend anyone who likes true life thrillers to watch it beacause, the reason being that a true story of crime and underworld is still worth watching.

            Mark & Lard have got the funniest radio show on air at the moment, these two men from Manchester have the zaniest sense of humour without it being too hard to understand. They started off on the breakfast show before getting moved to an afternoon slot. Whilst having an excellent choice of music to play they have time to fit in a brilliant amount of the funniest games and sketches. With hilarious antics such as Vague News, Beat the Clock, The Cheesily Chart Challenge and Fat Harry White this show has got to played on nearly every radio between 2pm and 4pm. Mark and Lard (Mark Radcliffe and Marc Riley) are also members of The Shirehorses, a band that produce spoofs of well known songs, and have brought out an album called The Worst Album In The World.....Ever. If you like good comedy and a good selection of music then tune into radio 1 between 2pm and 4pm, monday to friday.

            Show me someone that said they liked Charlies Angles and i will show you a lier. Did the producers of this movie have money to throw away or were they deliberatly trying to make extremely poor film? From within the first 20 minutes of this film you will be able to predict what is coming next, the plot was poor, the acting was poor and it was a rip off of some really god movies. The effect and fight scenes came straight from the Matrix and Mission Impossible story boards and if there was meant to be some comedy in there, i'm sorry but it didn't even make me smile. The only thing worth watching in the film (for all you males out there) is the actresses, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Lui and Drew Barrymore all look great in the film, but if it wasn't for them i wouldn't have watched the film to the end. This is probably the worst film i have seen in a long time. I might not be a film critic, but i think i know a poor film when i see one.

            This has been one of the best things i have insatlled on my computer. Until i installed my system would always crash, which i hate, but since i've installed this software i have never had to reboot my computer again. This programme is easy to install and easy to use, everything is explained for you. Up until i first ran the problem finder, i thought i had kept my computer in pretty good condition, but no, this software found 106 errors and with a click of the mouse fixed them quickly. Now when a programme crashes i don't have to restart the programme or even my computer, with crashguard all i have to do is click the revive button and i'm back on track. A must have if you are sick of seeing "this programme has performed an illegal operation" or looking at a blue screen all the time.
