...the two servers were called North Tower and South Tower.
"With regret we have come to the decision that no prize will be awarded this year."
What about giving it to the runners-up??? I smell a rat- Maybe the magazine is so hard up that it concockted a way of getting out of rewarding the prize money.
Is anyone still using Adboe Reader??? I thought all the smart people had moved over to Foxit.
The first time I ever hacked a system (a VAX mainframe), I got caught because I returned to cover my tracks and the sys admins were waiting for me. Learnt a powerful lesson that day.
The last time we had Swine Flu in Ireland it was called Blue Flu...
@Stan- regarding "Wonder if they will piggyback this one on another issue it 's impossible to vote "no" to as well?"- Sorry that's an uniquely american issue- Doesn't happen here in Ireland.
@RW- regarding "Never heard of the machines being at fault"- What about all that "hanging chad" crap we had to endure after the 2000 elections?
@Ponder Stebbins- "The only people that should take a hit is our Irish TDs, preferably between the eyes." Agreed. These are the bastards that refuse to give up their "long service bonuses" even though it was decided in the budget.
That's a worse mangling of the Apocalypse Now quote than the popular but incorrect "I love the smell of napalm in the morning- it smells of victory"
“We don’t know how to build a sub-$500 computer that is not a piece of junk”
“We don’t know how to build a $500-plus computer that is not a piece of junk”
Reminds me of the old joke...
About Sheepshagger Jones- "You rescue children from a burning school- Do they call you Jones the Hero? Do they hell. You raise hundreds of pounds for charity- Do they call you Jones the Good? Do they hell. But you shag one sheep and you've got a name for life..."
Good beer triumphs over shit beer.
From what I understand, any beer brewed in the town of Budvice has the right to call itself budweiser. And they have a brewing standard close to the Reinheitsgebot which the "piss syphoned directly from our very own Clydesdales" does not adhere to.
Thumbs up here...
I enjoyed the entire series (baring the odd clunker episode- Black Market and Scar I'm looking at you). I think it's been the best SF since Farscape and I'll miss it. The finale may not have been A+ material but I think I'll give it a B+.
Anyway- Primeval's back on Saturday and I think I heard someone say that The Wire starts on BBC2 next week.
According to yesterdays Independent...
...Google Streetview also offered up pictures of naked children playing in their back garden. Now I thought that ownership of such material constituted possession of child pornography.
"Sadly, the offence of Barratry was abolished in 1967. (Why?!) "
Because by then Syd had reinvented it to mean something completely different altogether.
...who pushed the "paedo button"???
"One can only imagine what the Psion range might have evolved into in the netbook era, had management (and shareholders) held their nerve."
errr- you mean if Motorola hadn't bankrupted them (well the commercial division).
Why do we have to have that amateurish (crap) video attached to every one of these stories?
Oscar News- Live from the red carpet!
America receives one, non-technical, pity Oscar.
Kate Winslet's breasts make triumphant return!
Wall-E creators thank you speech includes the Academy for not including Persepolis and Waltz with Bashir in animated category.
Rod Blagojevich looks forward to lucrative tie in with 'Scumdog Million-hairs'
Dev Patel wonders 'where the fuck is my Oscar?'
New Oscar statuettes have twist off heads/contain shampoo.
Josh Brolin considering suicide for next Oscar bid.
...the medium should not have a bearing on increase or decrease of IQ. If the kids using the pencil and paper were doing exactly the same tests as the kids with the DS the results should be roughly the same...
Or did the kids with the pencils and paper get a more rigorous test?
What a surprise...
I always thought Atom was a way for Intel to get right back to its core model of releasing a new chip every 6 months. It's gone nearly as far as it can with the heavy metal-so now lets jump back in time and start again.
Also Googles Reverse Billing...
Rather than simply billing for the number of ads served during the month, Google ask you how much you wish to pay and then massage the prices to make sure you pretty much paid that amount monthly. We had one month where we only had 1 single click. The price of that click- €49.99.
We suspended our use of adwords after that.
