the latest variants of Foxit Reader have a nasty habit of doing this too.
I was one of the first people in Ireland to do all my Christmas shopping online back in the late 90s. This year I am doing all my shopping in local bricks-and-mortar businesses.
If they never signed off on a contract with Groupon then they were not liable. All this would have taken is to have the staff briefed so they can pass this info onto the customers and then the customers could trash Groupon instead.
are you saying that their money needs tightening?
Hopefully they will return Q to the role of armourer rather than a producer of silly toys.
Don't forget the incredibly dire Stargate:Infinity
no, that's the space tug Nostromo. The Narcissus was an escape pod and a lot smaller.
I always thought that there was a galactic 'Up' because whenever the Enterprise encounters another ship, they're always aligned along the Z axis.
"The beauty of the saucer, of course, is that it’s inexpensive to fake. As a million ill-advised amateurs with a Super 8 camera and a hubcap have proven over the years."
Including me I'm proud to say.
That's about the strenght of it...
having worked with a few government departments I was always amazed at how cavalier they were with money; They really had no concept of its value- just keep throwing more at a problem until the problem went away.
A new definition?
"Corona was driven to desperate measures after trying all the usual channels"
This must be a completely new definition of the word 'desperate'. Unless the desperation here was desperate need for attention.
He's not a barista, he's someone who just makes coffee. It's rather like calling the person who brings you your wine a 'sommelier'
What I don't get, is after you've 'discovered' your porn name, why you need to type it in anywhere?
Sad news indeed...
I read nearly all her books as a youngster and was only just thinking about getting my eldest daughter started on the Pern series.
An iPhone that doesn't work properly as a phone!!! I think Apple call that an iPod Touch.
I use Groupon to tell me what restaurants to avoid.
but on the plus side....
...Groupon made over £26,500
I might take you up on that Frank...
Here in Ireland artists are entitled to tax-exemption (yes, even U2). I've always considered my code to be art so I am going to make a submission to the Irish Revenue and claim artists exemption.
I'll let you know how I get on.
Reminds me of an old joke...
Young Jesus was playing in his house, Joseph is on the roof doing some repairs. Suddenly Jesus runs out and shouts up to Joseph 'did you call me, dad?'. 'No' replied Joseph, 'I just hit my thumb with the hammer. Again.'
Me falta una tornillo means 'I need a screw'. Expect a red light district to spring up around Ikea.
the article neglected to mention that she is a Northsider.
People Eat Tasty Animals
ah Kitten Kong. How I'd wish he'd turn up and swat all those PoX Factor wannbes, just like he did to Michael Aspel.
Is the answer 'Steve Jobs'?
The one thing you must remember about Yogi Berra...
...is that he is smarter than the average Berra.
"YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE THRUTH"
well, it is a New Shiny Thing and there is a certain demographic that likes New Shiny Thing. There's also the 'fact' that 4S means 'for Steve', who died for all our sins and is the greatest contributor to the gaming industry, EVAH.
A walled garden within the walled garden.
There was that story about the snake that killed a cat that wandered into its garden. Lead to a huge outcry from the Cat Enthralled screaming how dare a snake attack a defenceless kitty.
Let me get this straight....
this is a possible cure for Parkinsons???
The move to roman numerals (version 10 will be released as version X) and the requirement that every customer purchase a yearly Customer Care Package which does nothing except entitle the buyer to purchase the next major upgrade at a slightly lower price than buying it new; even though when you look at the numbers it turns out you would have saved a boatload of money by not purchasing the CCP and buying the next upgrade as new anyway.
This is just a true indication that so called 'Gaming Executives' have no awareness of the people in the industry. Hardly surprising given that the 'Executives' in any business these days are nothing more than accountants. Be thankful that they were not asked to list the top most influential games of all time, the top two replies would have been 'Excel' and 'Sage Accounts'.
Also worth a mention...
The Ericsson variant of the Psion Series 3, the MC218
Every mobile I've owned upto now have been Ericsson (plus Sony in later years). I refuse to buy Sony kit because of their extremely poor after-sales. My next phone will also be an SE. After that, who knows. I can definitely say it won't be a Sony.
I think you need to rename this article...
...Boffins Break El Reg's Understanding Of The Laws Of Thermodynamics.
On the plus side...
...finally searches for C++ will work in Google. At long bloody last.
That's what I meant- I listed the series higpoints that the programs seem to go downhill from; well not downhill from- but they never hit that same high note again. Still, Lineham/Matthews mediocre is 100 times better than the usual trash paraded as comedy these days.
or worse, the zombie corpse of The Simpsons.
On the plus side, I can now buy the complete box set, I held off after I heard about the possiblity of a 5th series.
Though now they are talking about a one-off special so I might hold off until that.
I do think that "Work Outing" was when the show jumped the shark TBH. A bit like Speed 3 in Father Ted and the episode with Manny in the piano on Black Books.
Though I did love Street Countdown.
Okay, now on my sixth copy- 2 more since the apology.
and another copy at 15:52. El Reg must really want me to have these email addresses.
Better late than never...
My copy has just arrived... (14:10pm)
But septics don't understand the decimal system...
...as evidenced by "Verizon doesn't know dollars from cents":
There is nothing unique about what groupon delivers. Anyone buying this stock will only prove the old adage 'a fool and his money are easily parted'.
Besides which, if they waited around long enough, I'm sure they'll get an email offering them the same product with 60% off...
I thought Gozilla defeated him in an epic battle fought in downtown Tokyo...
Viz will be suing him for copyright shortly...
if you want to be politically correct, please use the term 'septics' instead.
