I'm pretty sure the line length limit in the FORTRAN f77 I used as an undergrad in the 90s was lower than 80 characters. You lost the first 6 or so characters on every line (okay, they weren't really lost, but they had specific meanings so for most lines of code they weren't used), and I'm pretty sure everything after character 72 was ignored, no?

You may need to restart...
This test update - with presumably no real content - is showing a restart may be required message in the screenshot. I see that Windows habit that "updating anything requires a restart" hasn't changed.
You can work around the BBC normally requiring Flash by changing the user agent of your browser to pretend to be an iPad. Doesn't work for Channel 4's on demand service though: that just asks you to install their app.
You know you've spent too long with linux when you read "f*ck" as "fsck"…
I'll wager that customers agreed to it in the EULA that absolutely no one reads.
Re: Isn't a number that is almost infinite, er, infinite?
0.999 recurring is equal to 1.0, not almost equal. Here's a test: 1-0.999… equals zero.
Re: Tried to change password ..
I found the close account option quicker than the change password option - so used that approach instead.
2nd Gen ipod still useful
Still have my 2nd Gen iPod from December 2002 - and found an alternative use a couple of days ago. Internal hard disc died on my iMac, so installed Snow Leopard on the iPod via firewire and ran the iMac for a couple of days from there while waiting for a replacement hard disc to arrive. The iMac was surprisingly useful from the external iPod, although the boot time was horrendous.
Used this setup to update an iPod touch to iOS 5 too.
Hang on, your units are all messed up! As any fule knows; the correct units for volume are:
# Walnut = 0.16gf
# Chicken's egg = 0.35gf
# Bulgarian airbag (C-cup Posh Spice - allegedly) = 1.1gf
# Bulgarian funbag (DD-cup Jordan) = 3.27gf
# Football = 11.07gf
# Olympic-sized swimming pool = 4,780,114gf
# Known universe
(As defined in http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/08/24/vulture_central_standards/). Can we have an update with correct units?
Anyone else click on this link expecting to see playmobil?
No? Just me then...
