Re: Last all week?
Not a problem if you bring it to the boil for a couple of minutes on a daily basis (or more regularly in warmer climes, which Spain does not appear to be right now)
These are the same people who continue to fail to predict profit forecasts and are always the reason for headlines that read "Share Prices In Globocorp Fall After Profits Fail To Reach Expectations"
Re: "an experiment in education of pirates"
Minecraft is proof that game-play is the prime factor in order for a game to succeed. Hi-res graphics; surround-sound; etc are all secondary to game-play. Home computer games in the 80s proved this.

The reason a lot of people are rich is because they don't pay for anything...
Re: Time to go foraging?
scored a large amount of wild garlic yesterday
go to the website and check out the section entitled "Why £1". It's not supposed to equal £1 in Africa, it's supposed to equal the same value foodwise
Re: Do they not have street markets over in Spain?
They do- they are called mercadillos- great for fresh fruit and veg.
Re: Dozen eggs for a euro?
I have two chickens, and I worked out that after feed, bedding and sundries, I am paying just over 30c for a dozen eggs.
Good luck Lester...
In a slightly similar vein, I'm actually calculating exactly how much I spend on food a week. It looks like I'm going to blow through €6 before the end of the day (and that's after cutting down on extravagances like shop-bought sandwiches)
Re: Excuse me
No need- the way I can see to safeguard yourself against this is to create a gallery of all your online images and make sure they are tagged (by EXIF and captions) and accessible to image matching sites like TinEye. Then if someone uses your imagery without your permission claiming it was an 'orphan work', you can prove that they did not perform a "diligent search".
not really- I'm thinking of investing in a bow in order to keep the furry feckers away from my chickens.

There's no use crying over spilt milk, if she wasn't able to spot this earlier then she really needs to step down.
I don't think Robin Van Persie is his real name. He changed it from Thieving Van Penis.
Note to the confused: I'm channelling an old Dick Van Dyke joke here...
Re: Call me sceptical if you will, but...
>In America, celebrity 'I'm sorry's are usually followed by 'God has forgiven me, so why can't you?'
The correct reply to this is "No, I haven't"
He was shaking hands...
Re: Call me sceptical if you will, but...
Unfortunately, in America, they really do believe that saying "sorry" is all that is required. How often have you heard the phrase "I've said I'm sorry; what more do you want?"
In order for an apology to be truly meaningful, there needs to be an understanding of the distress caused; a genuine feeling of regret for causing this distress; and a desire to never cause the same distress again in the future. Most apologies fail at least 2 out of 3 of these points (I'm looking at you public transport).
More interestingly- the drop in share price came after the decision to pay Dividends...
One hit wonder?
Now, I wonder if there will be an equal drop in subscribers/revenue when Hemlock Grove debuts over here...
>Anyway, if my Co's shares 'tanked' to $400, I'd still be laughing all the way to the bank.
Not if you bought them at $700 you wouldn't.
>"Only" 10 billion dollars in profit? Yup, that's a company that's really sliding down the toilet.
It is to a Wealth Management company who regularly deal in 100's of billions.
Re: quality control?
My guess is it was something that surfaced when Apple tested beta loads of v6.2 of iOS.
Re: Why not go get it?
If you read the website you'd see:
a: The location is a block of flats.
b: The insurance company has already paid out on the stolen items so it's their laptop now.
Re: Uh... No.
so, he was an ancient Thomas Edison then...
It's happening here as well...
3 of my friends, who have had iPhones for years, all changed to the S4 rather than go for the iPhone 5.
I wonder if this is why AT&T appear to have blocked traffic to/from PayPal???
"We had the Tweet ready and waiting"
Because it would be so difficult to have to write up to 140 characters on the spur of the moment...
Worse thing is...
...you know that a bunch of marketdroids sat around a table and convinced themselves that the reason that Windows 8/Surface Tabs weren't selling was because they didn't have a 7" form factor...
Re: So Obviously
hey, what have you got against homosexual Australians?
"Let me guess - you're in America?"
Or in southern England...
A fitting eulogy...
Re: It shouldn't be patentable....
I've had it on my toilet door for a lot longer...
This man is quickly becoming very irrelevant; I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't change his name to "Roger"
Re: TicketMaster "Ticketfast" Charges
I just stopped going to concerts unless I can buy tickets at the door. I refuse to give TicketBastard anymore of my money.

Re: Similar effect
Actually, I don't think my power affects the computer at all- it just stops the user from doing the stupid thing they've been doing up to now and do it properly for once. Then you get the "oh, it's working now..."
Translation from BS to normal speech...
"Nokia is focusing on growing its presence in operator and third-party retail outlets, rather than through our own physical stores. We are, of course, also continuously beefing up our online presence."
Translation: "We fail"
There used to be a decent air service between Dublin and Cork- it was run by Aer Arran as a EU POS. Then Ryanair came in, edged them out and eventually decided not to service the route anymore. I think the same thing happened with Dublin to Kerry too.
Re: Do not want, and in fact this kind of thing is a fucking 'orrible idea.
Totally agree. I'd say this generation of cars are probably smarter than some of their drivers.
Warning: Office 365 does not work on Leap Years.
I would probably give the report a little more creedence if it wasn't coming from Tel Aviv...
