"What does "On the gridiron, that'd be Oklahoma Panhandle State versus the Crimson Tide." mean, please?"
"In a game of Girl Rugby, that'd be a Fourth Division team versus a Premier League team (named after a euphemism for menstruation)."
El Reg has become the Wayback Machine then...
"an Insurance company was rather surprised to find that after implementation of its in-house filtering system, direct mail campaigns to Essex, Sussex and Middlesex ceased entirely – as did communication with the inhabitants of Scunthorpe."
and not to mention the poor inhabitants of Fuckwich and Anusbury.
A bit convenient...
So your a company looking to downsize your workforce but you want to do it in a that does not require large redundancy payments?
Answer: Develop an extremely intolerant moral high ground and go through your employees email. Bound to find some sackable offences there...

Does this mean no Christmas TOTP2??? Where will I get my Greedies fix this year!!!!

I think someone needs to teach PETA how to exsanguinate their virtual turkeys...

"That's funny. I know of another device that can't support much beyond web browsing and checking e-mail, but is backed by the full faith and credit of Steve Jobs's divinity."
It's a MacBook, isn't it.
"It is expected to be tied into an ongoing Indian project to develop its own GPS system."
It's a pity that IRNSS is not directly GNSS compatible
"Sapphire's not an element!"
but then, neither is Steel...
Meanwhile, in HA...
"Hello, my name is Andrew and I'm a hacker..."
Scupper every pirate vessel (there's a dhow (Davy) Jones sinking joke in there somewhere).
I've never had any problems...
but then it takes a Lancastrian to do the job properly anyway.
I think I know how this one goes...
it turns out that the girl of his dreams is a ladyboy, who gives him a love virus of his very own.
Walt Disney strikes again
Anyone know what Disney's pollution index is?
not only a win for Obama...
but a landslide anniliation of McCain/Palin.

An undetectable master boot virus- pull the other one.
I smell bullshit.
"Can you imagine Clive Dunn handing over his password to some thug under "threat of violence"? He'd have been shouting for Mr.Mainwaring and the rest of the Home Guard to come and sort these chaps right out."
No he wouldn't. He'd be sticking it up 'em- because "they don't like it up 'em"
...the way the muppet turns into a total retard in the final message- "LMAO", "Epic Fail", "Facebook"
But, but, but...
Isn't Web 2.0 all about monetizing eyeballs???
Isn't this already being done...
...with those stupid Talking Head videos on YouTube???
Can't happen now...
Jagex have nailed down interplayer equipment exchanges.
It's a Sony and it's a Vaio. I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole thanks to Sony's extremely crap after sales service.
Why not GNSS???
I can understand the patrotic reasons behind using GLONASS in this situation but they could have just gone GNSS which would have included GPS and therefore a) Provided a better fix all times of the day and b) Provided a backup when one of the constellations gets switched off...
It could be Pauly Shore
Because ""If it rhymes, I can cause trouble in it"
Yep- it's called GNSS. Russia has had the GLONASS system up nearly as long as the American GPS. China launched a minimum complement of BEIDOU in time for the Olympics- this system will be extended and will be known as COMPASS. India is quite far into the IRNSS project and even Europe has managed to get a couple of Galileo sats into orbit.
It's been going on for years...
I had a Psion Series 5a stolen from my luggage while travelling from Newark to Vancouver. I was told to put it into my hold luggage because it presented a danger to the flight (it had an InfraRed port which would allow me to take over the flying of the aircraft apparently). When trying to claim for the unit I was bounced between airports, baggage handling companies and various insurance agencies- I eventually gave up 6 months later.
"You don't have girlfriends in Norway"
"Yes of course. But they program too"
>However, it *is* true that America came to her aid when it wasn't obliged to.
I think you find that rather than rendering aid voluntarily, America was cockpunched into WWII by the Japanese
'Of course, as the BBC notes, the project has taken flak for being "over ambitious" and a "waste of resources" for a nation where "millions still lack basic services".'
The same can be said for the USA...
Won't be the first...
...and won't be the last the abuse the whole "stick the flavour of the day buzzword on our products"- I remember when Java was this way and then XML (I'm looking at you, Bentley Microstation)
Kick it to the gutter
I've already unenjoyed the pilot with Colm Meaney as Gene Hunt. God that sucked.
"The software is just fantastic, that is really what I think.
Oh by the way, which one's Pink?"
"Stole from Xerox eh? Yeah sure, clearly Xerox had a long term OS business plan in mind, ROFL!
Educate yourself !"
You don't even have to read between the lines to see that the MAC fundmentals all hailed from PARC.
when you take into account active compression.
Isn't SlimVirgin an invert of FatSlag???
I see the world "PEST" displayed rather prominently below Ballmer
Twatdangler is not the best phrase I've heard all week. That accolade goes to the person who referred to the under-educated cannon fodder in the US Army as "hick bullet sponges".
If it was a "death leap", why is he still alive?
In fact, just discard the first half of that question.
Reminds me of Bladerunner The Collectors Edition
aka "The Suitcase". I managed to buy from a company that shipped from the states.
Shouldn't have bothered. It was crap.
Anything with a headline can be considered a newspaper???
Better watch the use of those <h1> tags then.
Another vote for Foxit reader here too.
Just let it be known up and down the straits that all pirate vessels will be scuppered and that it's the responsibility of the crew to ensure they have enough life jackets available.
Season 2 wasn't too bad...
It gave us Gay: The Gay Musical. Problem was I think the rest of the series was overshadowed by that one. Plus Denholms son is no replacement for Denholm.
OH MY GOD. HAVE YOU HEARD??????
EBAY KILLS BABIES WITH A MINCER!!!!
It wouldn't be difficult
You could ape exactly the way GNSS systems currently work. And without the need to derive out some of the non-dispersive errors it should be pretty accurate.
All the system would need to do is rewrite the almanacs to include stationary ground-based transmitters but I'm pretty sure that's already included in the protocol.
Reminds me of:
The Americans did it first...
...with Noraid supplying funds to Northern Irish paramilitaries. They had T-Shirts too.
