Nope, I am not on about those annoying mutant imps found in Doom.

The imp I want is something totally different – an Integrated Media Player – otherwise known as the BBC iPlayer. This is a project the BBC have been working on for what seems like years (hang on, it has been!). Basically, it allows users to download BBC TV shows from the internet. For someone like me, who no longer has Sky+, it is a great invention.

After 3 years of testing and trials, the BETA (yes, you read that right) version was released on Friday. The BBC announced the news to everyone via TV, radio, internet and carrier pigeon. I signed up on Friday evening and was told that I would receive my login details shortly – they are yet to arrive.

It seems I am not the only person awaiting the almighty userID and password required to access the iPlayer. My friend, Mr. Watkins is also without access, as are various users of the Digital Spy forums. Annoyingly, another one of my friends has TWO accounts. One of which he gave to me. Due to complications though, I wasn’t able to use it.

So, this is a plea, no, a THREAT to the BBC…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
