Re: I wrote to my MP about all this.
I agree completely that this sounds like serious fraud. If the MP's won't refer the matter how about that online petition thing they set up...? I think we've got enough techies and net-addicts to get some grass roots support for signatures going...?
Re: "Cheap Android tablets feel like shit"
Strange, the two I've bought (for half the price of this, WITH HD screens) felt smooth, powerful and handled all the apps and games thrown at them... Not that I'm saying Apple kit doesn't, but I suspicion you of telling complete porkies about working with kit or ever having touched an android...
Oh, and while I'm in here moaning about fanbois, how can anyone really recommend a lowered spec'd alternative without HD (and that's a biggie!) for twice the price? It's a bloody tablet! IS there an affordable HD tablet in the ipad range? I'd quite like one. But can we get an impartial hack to review it please?
(An Ainovo and an Archos in case anyones wondering)
Re: Good on you N. Korea
not so rrronery now I guess... 0_o
what did you expect?
The law society defended the lawyers, shock horror. Reminds me of when I complained to them about being ripped off by a lawyer - nothing happened.
He should file a complaint with the recently formed independent legal complaints service! A service formed BECAUSE the law society are famously protective of their own.
Erm, yes actually.
I'm a little surprised that neither the author nor the commentards seem to be aware that this 'craze' swept the UK (the yanks as well I think) about 2 years ago under the name of "The lying down game"
It even featured as headline on Sky news at one point.
So yes, it could quite easily have been some pissed up chav from Stanwell or something. I've seen pics of ground crew "planking" in the intakes for 747 turbines at Heathrow etc...
A quick check of the forums or related guides would tell you a couple of things - very few people use LED lights, they need a lot more work to be viable. Most people are switching from HID setups (e.g Metal Halides) to low power CFLs. Even with High Intensity Discharge light 1,000 watts per square metre would be REALLY high and cause potentially insurmountable heat issues
Good call sir.
I will also be adding as many IP's to their data trawl as possible.
What's baffling me though is how Sony intend to track the video and jailbreak files across the torrent network? I just had a little look, and you can get the whole shebang - and it's well seeded!
don't piss them
Surely everyone knows that's the first rule of the internet?
Can we have a guy fawkes / legion guy icon now please?
for teh lulz!
Can we gave a guy fawkes or legion icon now please?
Are behind over 9000 proxies to avoid getting v&.
As for how to stop the war, all you'd have to do is get boxxy to order it! ;D
As for the namefag, I wouldn't want to be in his shoes shortly.
And when are we gonna get a guy fawkes icon?!
New keyboard please! :D
= Long Cat Death Star.
Not a title.
Interesting... I thought Anon had migrated from the LOIC to the LCDS... At least for serious ops.
not a title.
Don't you mean 'over 9000' proxies? ;)
you could always try asking the 'folding at home' team if you can borrow their horde... :D
you can't catch anonymous
Anon numbers thousands, maybe tens of thousands all over the planet. Sure, a few of the less able beginners (newfags as they're called) may get v&, but think of it in Darwinian terms. The bulk of them will be behind "Over 9000" proxies... :D
Anonymous = final boss of the internet.
1st rule of the internet = don't annoy 4 chan!
you're not alone!
I'm 31 and my first instinct was to skip straight to the comments and write something along the lines of;-
hur hur huur... he sed DONG! hur huhur hur....
piss ups and breweries - not within governmental capabilities.
this is not a title. No, really.
Am I the only one that thought, "If some pickpocket lifts my phone on the bus / tube / high street" does that mean they can then go buy stuff with my money without needing PIN / signature etc"
And yes, I would obviously report it stolen the moment I noticed but that could be as long as an hour and you can do a lot of spending in London in an hour!
for teh lulz!
Anyone notice ACS laws site is down today? (still / again)
Omg! That must mean the 'longcat deathstar' is online....!

The should be more honest about this.
Mi'lud, we're going out of business not through unfair business practices but because Apple and Google both bundle much better software of their own design in for free... But make 'em give us loads of money anyway for being out of date and shit.
a title is NOT required!
That is all.
That is all.
I am going mad?
Because amanfrommars actually made sense to me there....!
The other thing that makes sense is buying AMD CPU's the moment Intel start bundling a copy of McAfee with every chip. I do NOT want a slice on horrible bloatware that's murder to uninstall.
So speaks a resident of maddonia
who's primary exports are mixed nuts and batshit.
As believable as porcine aviation and pyschic octopus!
But seriously, unless he's talking nano-swarms I suspect he's just pulled something clever sounding out of his arse!
And for a nano-swarm, to function it would need to maintain some form of swarm integrity as each individual nano-bot would only have a microscopic fraction of the swarms total memory (i.e. ability to actually store any info stolen) and a minuscule fraction of the transmitting equipment.
Desk fans anyone?
LOL! Butthurt much? Did he hit a nerve?
I'm not quite sure on what grounds you're going to deny that the Apple herd choose looks over function but I'd love to hear you try...
excuse me pardon
"criticism from telcos, who argued that Skype and its users were in effect benefiting from their networks without paying for them"
Errr... I PAY FOR MY BANDWIDTH!
Kindly don't tell me what I can or can't do with it especially given the tiny amount that a voice call to my sister uses. Yes I'm sure they'd love to charge me for the call as well but they can f**k off!
Beat me to it! Given that it's in Scotland, solar power is out but maybe wind turbines backed up by diesel genys? Using LEDs rather than HIDs would save power.
With any luck there's a nice underground river within easy tunneling distance, that way you get water and hydroelectric power!
lord save us
so they want the service they just don't want the infrastructure?
It's quite amusing
reading all the old fogies taking the piss out of facebook everytime there's a story about it.
Facebook is really useful for keeping track of friends and getting laid. Friends and Sex being two things i suspect a lot of commentards have only read about!
Canada has a military? Seriously? NOW all the piss-taking joke pictures make sense!
