I'm a Chain Reaction Cycles customer too...
And I only ordered something from them last Wednesday...
I have a green piece of paper here that I have valued at $10 million but I'm happy to sell it to you for $5 million. Do we have a deal?
Anyway, with everyone else jumping on the 'deal of the day' bandwagon (O2, Vodafone and now Facebook) it will only be a matter of time before that market is glutted.
4.3 was only released last week.
...the Japanese Homeland Security have raised the threat level from Mothra to Rodan.
It looks like Japan's largest non-Godzilla-related disaster could actually create Godzilla!
I'm pretty sure GLONASS already has decent coverage.
Just rename the ice cream Babyo Gaga...
As someone who has contributed to a couple of Open Source initiatives, I have to say that the problem is not with the whole Open Source ethos but with the consumers it attracts. The seems to be a massive entitlement issue with these people as they believe that as the source is free then the time and resources of the developers are also free and they (the developers) must respond to all demands for installation requests, technical support and code/design customisation.
And when one of these consumers tells you that 'if you had a donate button, I'd send you some money'; don't believe them. I've had a donate button up on my site for over half a year and it hasn't had a single hit.
...that she wasn't fired for making the remarks but for being so stupid for posting these remarks in a public forum? After all it would sound like working for an ambulance company should require a modicum of intelligence.
...before the we see the same story but with 'Facebook' replacing 'MySpace'.
...given that the guy did not have a full backup of all the data himself. Maybe he'll learn a valuable lesson from this.
All he has to do is restore his photos from one of his other backups (his laptop's hard disk, an external drive, CDs/DVDs). Let's face it, only a complete and utter idiot would have only 1 copy of such valuable data (and on an online source which he does not control).
Any chance that Chinese spy sats lie in that orbital plane???
I started my own business when I got reduced to a 3 day week. I'm now busier doing development on my 2 'off' days than I am on my 3 on days.
And coincidentally, a few of my projects have been to fix projects that went to India/Pakistan/Far East "code for cheap" sweatshops- the original project bid for on freelancers. There's definitely life in the old adage 'you get what you pay for'.
" At night, if the guards cannot see him clearly, because he has a blanket over his head..."

...Lane Fox thought she was as important as Zuckerberg thinks he is now.
...this coincides with the launch of the iLiver 3.
...is for someone within WikiLeaks to leak all the documents to OpenLeaks. And then we can sit back and watch Julian's head explode.
the only reason China has done this is so it can sell a bucket load of them to the US for a fraction of the cost of an F22.
not true- What about the 'Not Child Left Behind' program (better know as the 'No Child Gets Ahead' program).
...and expect lots of messages from the septics wanting to know what a 'Boxing Day' is...
I can see her revolving in either direction. And I can change the 'direction of spin' while viewing.
I appear to have suddenly come over all peckish (esurient)
Standard smear tactic by governments looking to discredit someone- Attach them to a sex scandal.
It's looks like Kim Ill won't me "ronery" much longer...
I was at Dublin Airport waiting to board a decent carriers flight when a message came over the PA advising LyingAir passengers that the flight that was boarding at Gate 20 was now boarding at Gate 28.
There followed a resultant rush of what could only be called humanity's lowest common denominator, each elbowing and pushing in order to be the first in line.
I asked my friend what he thought the collective noun for this herd was. He pointed out the (drunk at 7am) hen party and suggested "Trampede". My suggestion was "chavalanche".
I was weighing up getting a Vivaz or an X10 earlier this year- I went with the Vivaz mainly because of SE's continuing support of Symbian and a hope for a ^3 or ^4 handset. Looks like I made the wrong choice.
Tactical Nuclear Penguin: 32%
Sink The Bismark: 41%
End of Days: 48%
...where theme parks like this provide mobility scooters to its patrons, lest the fat f*cks actually get some exercise.
The project is called "HelloPurr". However the button makes a 'meow' sound rather than a 'purr'.
Are they still going? My dad used to work with them many years ago. I still have an old TEK 4111 coaster on my desk.
I have a Vodafone bloated Vivaz. Recently I noticed that I was getting charged for data even though I'm on my companies data plan. Vodafone explained that this was because I used Vodafone Live to connect instead of some other way. So I check and Vodafone Live is the only internet access method set on the phone. And it cannot be removed.
...when I took the family to see Toy Story 3 on Saturday, the 3d price was the same as the 2d price. The only difference was 50c each for the glasses- but we brought our own anyway.
So his Jobness is telling people to buy rubber "bumpers" to alleviate the design flaw. Wasn't this the same guy who demanded all iPhone screen protectors to be removed from the Apple stores because it gave the wrong impression about the "robustness" of the screen.
I wish him all the best with TomTom
It's all about money. A friend was showing me some of the Apps he had purchased for his iPhone- Everyone of them were available as free Flash applications for non-iPhone users. He got stroppy when I pointed out to him that the rest of the world gets for free what Apple users have to pay for.
I can't help but wonder if Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh had something to do with Duckworth and Lewis getting the MBEs...
"Stainless steel for strength. Glass on the front and back. Integrated antennas, and extraordinary build quality," was Jobs' boast.
He then went on to add "People have literally died bring this product to market"...
It would appear that "HTML5" is going to be the replacement buzzword for "Web 2.0" with a load of gonks bandying it about to make themselves look more important.
"Please stop helping the oil spill
The Gulf of Mexico"
They've gone back to panel judging but still let the audience feel like they are part of the experience by allowing them to text vote (can't kill a good revenue stream).
Anyway- bring back Sir Terry. He was the only good thing about the contest.
It (like all Apple products) is ideal for the technically-thick.
It's a bad day for the Daily Mail, first they appear clueless about "copyright" and now they appear equally clueless about "contractual obligation"
It managed to identify random pages that I'd visited through google searches. And then told me of sites I'd visited "recently" which I hadn't been near for over a year.
That's a true fan- wont drop out of character for a second...
...out of the shower I see.
An iPhone owner who is "tech savvy"? Does such a thing exist?
but isn't 9 years old a little too old for kindergarten?
