"The walls are crying..."
A solution looking for a problem?
Why is the onus on me to know where my luggage is? I sure the airlines will love this- "Now sir, if you can tell us where the last location your suitcase told you it was, we will get it picked up for you... What, you don't have a locator in your suitcase? Then I'm afraid there's not much we can do for you..."
not only will it not stop thieving luggage handling scrotes, it won't stop the abuse they give your suitcase either.
The extra D is "for a double dose of this pimping"
Also, given that a lot of data for the Facebook and Twitter platforms end up on NSA servers- I can see this also being a sticking point for the Chinese.
Re: Another triumph of designers vs. common sense
Developers: See, we told you that we'd have to change it back in 6 months.
Designers and management: We don't remember you telling us that.
Re: Data entry on the Psion Organiser
"The huge downside to the Psion Organisers was the battery setup. They had just one 9V battery and if the connection was lost for an instant, so was your data."
Wrong. There was an onboard capacitor which had enough backup power to cover you for about 30 seconds to allow battery swaps.
Re: Chorded typing!
we used to have one customer continuously badger us for a chord interface for his Psions, said whoever did it would become a millionaire. I asked him why didn't he do it- didn't hear from him again.
Re: And nothing of value was lost...
Indeed. I'm trying to rack my brain over when I last watched the channel. It was probably for a Doctor Who or Merlin catch-up.
Flexcoin has now gone too...
Flexcoin had 868 BTC stolen last Sunday and they've closed their doors (see flexcoin.com)
Re: inquiring former colonials want to know...
I always thought cottage pie was made from cottagers.
Re: Cheese? In a cottage pie?
BURN THE HERETIC!!!!
I'm going to have that Alexei Sayle song stuck in my head all day...
Time for The Register to weigh in methinks.
Just to echo an idea in yesterdays comments- The Register needs to start using its readership clout and create a campaign for this.
He then concluded the press conference by singing "Anything you can do, Icahn do better"...
I remember The Reg back when it was cool...
I feel inadequate...
Only 3 email addresses here, and one of them came from CIX rationalising from cix.compulink.co.uk to cix.co.uk
The history of earth according to computer games...
I was kinda agreeing with it until it got to CrRapper the Rapper.
Re: Lots of power in compressed air...
yes, I wouldn't expect them to make a lot of noise.
I remember that C&VG magazine gave away a tape with the soundtrack to Outrun and Skate Or Die on it. I still have it somewhere. Must see if I can dig it out at the weekend.
Re: Good on Australia
"how amazing the universe is and how tiny we are in the scheme of things"
Especially when viewed in perspective with a small piece of fairy cake...
A few thoughts...
Interesting that the Ponds never figured anywhere. The actors didn't appear to be in the after party either.
Well done to all involved for keeping the story under wraps. It was a real surprise to me when number 4 turned up.
Nice the way they separated War Command from the High Council so they didn't have to explain where Timothy Dalton was.
And if you haven't seen it, look for "The Night Of The Doctor" on Youtube. Give's great perspective on how long the Time Wars actually ran for. McGann gets a good send of and gets to name check The Big Finish companions too.
It's on tonight-
Re: No Shard?
I think you'll find that the Shard is that Shard shaped object, 3rd from the right.
Re: Robots of renown
Are you sure you are not thinking about NoNo from Ulysees 31?
Re: "Apple has all this money"
I don't get why he believes that giving money back to rich people is the best use of the money for Apple.
...of Dobby the House Doctor.
Nothing more to say but
...Steven Moffat appears most in the list.
Still waiting for that Doctor Who/Coupling crossover (or even better- Doctor Who/Press Gang)
...how Steve Ballmer appeared at the end of the battle.
A very timely article...
I am currently looking to setup a cloud service for a company- We found that the "free" services, iDrive, Google Drive, DropBox et al, could not handle the file sizes that we needed to put in the cloud (multi-gigabyte). Any chance you could follow up this article with a top ten or Register Recommended on the various products that are currently on the market (I'm aware of ownCloud and WD's My Cloud).
It's rather like saying...
The World Trade Towers were just two buildings- get over it.
or having to explain to the boss (yet again) why I do not know why a particular website that he is looking at is running slow or doing things in a way that he deems "not right". Now my standard response is "I will see if I get get you the phone number of the web developer in charge of that site and you can ask him yourself".
Users who ask "Is the GPS system down" when they have an issue with their SatNav.
Yes user, a constellation of approximately 24 satellites, which US military and numerous civilian enterprises are nearly totally reliant on, has switched itself off.
Only 11 actors?
I'm guessing that Peter Cushing is not counted as one of the actors who have played the Doctor
Re: How friggin awesome is evolution!
I know you are trolling but this probably supports evolution more- the mice that don't have the immunity die and therefore do not procreate, whereas the ones that do, get to pass on that trait to the next generation.
I will now prove that black is white and die on a zebra crossing.

The Age of Consent is 15 in Sweden.
Re: A bit on the late side for this aren't they?
I remember reports from Italy in the 70s about scooter passengers with walking canes hooking handbags.
Re: Its time...
I was thinking taser rather than explosives...
Me and the missus really enjoy Vagina is the New Penis (aka Prisoner: Cell Block USA).
Hemlock Grove was shite though.
Re: "Look at me!!!!! I'm an attention whore!!!!"
Ryanair play an invaluable role in keeping the chavs and the scumbags off of the nice peoples airlines. Just remember that next time your flight is landing and there are no idiots applauding.
There's a maker of pasta that might be interested...
Don't forget us poor bastards with LLI
Low Latent Inhibition- the opposite of aspergers.
Let the hardons begin...
The great thing about this story will be the number of media sites that will misspell "Hadron"
yes but now the investors know what the rest of us have known for the last 4-5 years and they want their money back.
When I'm stuck for a spanish word, I usually take the English word and add an -o or -a (or -ado, -ando or -amente depending on context) to the end of it. Most of the time it works out
Re: "ROMANES EUNT DOMUS"
si, yo comprendo
A little late...
