Download free films here!

Everyone is at it. Even your dear old nan. So this week, the modern era's answer to Buster Keaton gets all piratebay on your ass. Therefore (and thus) we proudly present Mr Vista's attempt to download some free feature films. Obviously you wouldn't know anything about that - would you!

This week's guest writer is Steve Morrison. A great comedy writer... here is a plug for his new book...

Big Screen Vista

Clearly Mr Vista had the correct drivers installed - as he made it onto the big screen. Luckily the only member of the public who actually stood and stared at a big screen in the middle of Walthamstow also happens to be a loyal Vistaron - Stuart Arnott. Don't forget, if you find big screens scary and you prefer small screens then Mr Vista is available as a video podcast on itunes here.

The inevitable consequence of increasing storage

You know how it is. You get your shiny new storage doo-dah and you just know that this time you will never fill it. I mean, come on, who needs to be able to store 1.4MB / 700MB / 4GB / 1TB (delete as applicable dependent upon the age of yourself) anyway? Who has that much crap? Well, clearly, you do! And so do I. Nuts.

And yes, the brain transfer kit is back. Just to wring maximum use out of our most expensive prop ever made.

This episode also features a handy blip-vert of the whole of series 1. In effect series 1 in a compressed form to save on storage. It isn't infinite you know!

And for the geeks out there - yes, that really is an original issue windows XP launch T-shirt. Jealous much?

Mr Freeza

The Vista campsite is snowed in this week. Even Mr Vista looks a bit chilly!

The perils of being an early adopter

You know how it goes, you turn on your computer to find a new 'software update' is available to download. So you click to download and install it straight away, excited by the new features and envisioning a dream of a bug-free lifestyle - yes?


What are you an idiot or something? Fear change. It is there to funk up your beautiful calm existence. Don't be the first in there. Don't put your hand up and volunteer. Don't jump in with both feet, or even one foot. Let all the gung-ho fat-heads around jump in first to discover it was really a pool of acid. Those first out of the trenches are the first to be shot.

I mean, be careful, otherwise you may find something 'interesting' happens in your life. And we don't want that, do we!

As you can see this film also features Brian from Family Guy and a nice retro VHS copy of Monty Python's Life of Brian. I'll just say that again, it was Family Guy and Monty Python's Life of Brian - you know, just in case the web crawlers and search engines didn't pick it up first time :)
