I think I remember that overclickers used to be known as overcocksuckers at one point, thus me not remembering OCS...

I disliked the owner so much I never actually bothered buying anything there. The big change came the distance selling regulations 2000 which severely limited their and other mail order companies options.

Any ideas on curing this problem, I mean apart from blowing up the houses of commons with all MPs inside?...

Wasn't that the OverCockup Store or something? I remember it being regarded as a badge of honour to get banned from there at one point.

I think you might be thinking of Overclockers UK, the owner at the time could be a bit of an arsehole at times, and was occasionally quite openly racist. People used to get banned from the forum for all sorts of trivial things if they got on the wrong side of him. Though he also seemed to do pretty well for himself and ended up growing it into a a very nice size business worth millions, which was impressive to be fair to him.

The overclocking store was what existed before tekheads, I guess there was some brief overlap where Sam and Steve set up tekheads and the other owner of OCS ran it for a bit before it failed and disappeared, but essentially when tekheads got set up a load of the customers and forum user migrated across and OCS died.

It does great for music someone is playing or if your in a shop etc but it is really bad being able to pick out what is being played on a show or advert and you cant really whip it out in a cinema and with all music in the background a lot of the time it has a hard time picking it up.

Sourcing data from API and building just a relations database, pooling from a tv/show database and then spotify (Because it does have a lot of the remixes compared to others) and soundcloud I think someone (We?) could build out something pretty powerful.

There used to be a website called Commercial breaks and beats that used to do this about 10 years ago, but they had a big server crash and for some reason didn't have a working backup so just threw in the towel..

I guess Shazam fills some of this gap now..

Does anyone know of a site that does this exactly?

Song plays - You know the movie /song and you want to look up where it has been used.
There are some sites I can find the other way around (which do not work that well ) but not this.

Seems to me there could be a good site built doing this, look up a song - See the movies and shows used and then maybe even the scene. Then the other way around, a movie or show and the song. Even further trailers because they often have awesome songs or remixes of a song you like and want to find out. Often it is just comments on youtube but a site that does this well would be handy?

Same. The Trump despising rants are great  ;D

Following the tanned idiot is both horrifying and hilarious. His recent EU trip has just been shocking.
