Real world eclipsed by Web cast

You don't need to watch the solar eclipse when you’ve got a PC

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The BBC is teaming up with the European Space Agency to show live footage of August's solar eclipse on its Web site for people who won't make it to Cornwall for the real thing. One pundit, seemingly unimpressed at the prospect of being able to watch the eclipse on their PC said: "Eclipse? Aaargh! We can all see the eclipse as it happens - it goes sodding dark, right? You can do this with a paper bag if you are not in the right place too*." But just in case you are interested, it will be hosted by Phillipa Forrester, who was in FHM's list of the world’s top 100 sexiest women this year. Not that that's relevant or anything. Any readers wanting to proffer alternate uses for their paper bag in the light of Ms Forrester's presence on the Web cast should keep such comments to themselves. (*Register DIY eclipse tip.) ®
