  • Tax Return

    Wi-fi Analyser is brilliant – I had exactly this problem with my phone and now it runs like a beast, now I can get back to my tax return – don’t suppose there is something that will do this for me.

    Hi! I figured I would ask this here.

    I was wondering if there are any sites similar to Goodreads/Last.fm but for movies and television, that would log all the movies you’ve watched / recently seen as well as enabling you to rate and review? There IS a few that I’ve explored but they are confusing to navigate (filmaster.com), simplistic (flickchart) or completely juvenile (flixster). Jinni lacks a “recently viewed” feature, but then again, it’s probably the most functional from what I found in my search.

    maybe you could do a post on it.. even an ipod app would be fine with me. Thanks for reading!
