All UK radio stations to be available on one website by Christmas?
Earlier this year, commercial radio and the BBC joined forces, setting up the Radio Council. The Radio Council is a cross-industry body set up to protect the future of radio in a digital world and protect the interests of both the BBC and commercial stations.
They aim to set up a website offering access to every radio station in the UK in the plan, supported by Director of audio and music at the BBC, Tim Davie, who is also a Founder of the Radio Council group. The new site could provide listeners with live access to up to 500 radio networks.
The site is aiming to launch a beta test before Christmas, with the full launch due in the first half of next year.
In an interview with The Independent, Davie declared that free music websites such as Dizzler and Spotify pose a “real threat” to the radio, unless it quickly provides a one-stop-shop for radio listening. Currently only two per cent of UK listeners are tuning in online. He goes on to say that "Radio, by working as a sector more effectively, can really prosper in the digital world.”
Chief executive of the Radio Council, Andrew Harrison has said "I think it's going to be quite a breakthrough project." He can’t be wrong, I don’t think that a media collaboration of this magnitude has ever been even attempted anywhere in the world and it will be great to see how this works out.

Sadly my Core2Quad is showing its age now, and I really want to get the last bit of juice of my system before my planned Core i7 (maybe i9 if I am rich after xmas).
My current Q9450 can hit 3.8Ghz (480x8 @1.45v), and ~17.5k in 3DMark06, but was wondering if you lot knew any tricks I could try to get the last oomph out my system.
I am not clued up on RAM overclocking at all, but would loosening my timings from 5-5-5 @1066 to say 6-6-6 or 7-7-7 @1150 (my next RAM FSB strap) help majorly? With my current FSB of 480 I have to calm the RAM down to 900Mhz or so as 1150Mhz seemed crazy and thought tighter timings would be better than higher freq, would this tasty 250Mhz extra get me closer to my 20k in 3DMark? :D
And any other tricks to go balls to the wall for CPU overclocking?
I have hit as high a FSB as I think I can, but looking for any tricks.
Yet to play with VTT as I hear it kills CPUs like nothing else, and I would at least like to sell my Q9450 when I am done :D
C'mon, lets give Red October its last Huzzah

Spec is as follows:
ASUS Maximus Formula
4Gb PC8500 RAM
Radeon HD4870
TJ07 with full watercooling

Tbh you've probably hit your safe ceiling. But if you want some fun just slap and extra .1v through it, more if needed.

VTT tweaking will help too and don't be too affraid. It's only a real danger if run for hours at high settings (or if your really unlucky...).

Really unlucky?
November 2007- Feb 2008: 5 more motherboards went to silicon heaven with me, bad Enermax PSU.
May 2008: Case caught fire
April 2009: 7900GS blew up
June 2008: Coolermaster PSU blew up
November 2008: Samsung F1 Boot Sector collapsed

Most of them wen't really *my* fault...
