Dork Smith as we know in NZ became a real flop after non component sales...
Title should be..
Who Flug Dung reports...
recover c:/flood. I seem to remember or forgot-)
I am reading this in Samoa ( Southern Hemisphere; Just) The Reg. is a daily read for me. Just thought I would let you know.
Paper Aquatic Recoverable Is Submergible.
How far down can you go salty sea wise.
Yeah I know "water proof" the paper bit.
Just a thought.

Great Job. Have been following this from the start...
Chris in Samoa (not quite a remote as space, but damn close)
Thank God for Newspapers
Buy one 6 days a week. Crossword, comics and classified. Usefull for wrapping the food scraps up in as well, but not a great subtitute for bog paper.
only if you...
Then we all have power over... Just by ... we have changed it.
Then what was it?
Sonic MyDVD and I still use it. Simple and works like a charm. Roxio uhh!
DivX. Stoopid me puchased that encoder package. Takes over 3 hours to encode 45 mins of video using a 3.4 Ghz HT machine. Cannot read all formats it is supposed too (and DVDs). The DivX "crowd" were of no help. Now I just .iso for free! 15 minutes tops.
Must have been sleeping to close to a crack or 2 or...
Floppy to the rescue
I live on a small South Pacific Island (Samoa). Had to bypass use of a printer that went down on a 10 year old NT Server. A replacement printer (or any) was unavailable for a couple of weeks.
Hey copy printer to file then to floppy. I have a similiar printer at base, rename file .prn, copy .prn /b LPT1. Viola saved by the floppy.
3D wireless mouse app
Point and click your fingers. (3 axis) Might try that...
Sure no problem while it is still sitting in the packaging. I have used IBM 1 million hour MTBF SCSI(1) drives. Lasted about 10 years @ 6x24x51x10=73440 say 100K hours (being optomistic). Opps... of by a factor of 10.
Not bloody likely
Cracked me off man, I.m still laughing!
is the same man whom spelt potato with an E!
He visited our Island (American Samoa) and commented, "They look like a bunch of happy campers"
F off con man!
Oldies and Goldies
I remember the the original prisoner well most of it anyway.. Black n white TV and enough chemical stimulation untill the TV turned into colour. It all made sense then...
Blakes Seven again tonight.
also leave out
They also leave solder out as well. Our $US 3500 NCR POS laser scanners one AC input lead to the PC board was not soldeed on all our PSU,s causing arcing and intermiitent use. Had a QC sticker on them chinese bricks tho.
No Sir you are nor going senile and yes fake acks or polls was standard procedure 20 years plus ago. We used it for low speed ie. 2400bps to 9600 for Quantel intercountry Nz to Australia terminal conections. I fnot the delay would have caused the end user to go off the deep end...
remember Pirate Planet by Douglas Adams? A classic Dr Who for me along with "the Dr Who Movie"
Im old old, saw my first Dr in 1963.
I use a desktop every day at work oh and servers too...
Sorry we got no radiators here in the tropics the neareset coconut tree is used-)
That's no cobble it's an early generation Monolith obviously made in China.
Tiger direct wanted to charge me $50 US to ship a video board here to American Samoa via the United States Post Office. No thanks, another retailer shipped it for 12 dollars (the correct USPS charge). Bye, bye Tiger.
I just tripped out the power cord... Just give me a sec to plug it back in.
Mines the one with 300 million year battery in the pocket.
You fell sleepy, very sleepy...
Isn't an exspurt just a drip under pressure?
Mines the one with the Inet online MBA in the pocket.
ounces in a liter?
My guess (unedumicated) tis a problem with gravity or in this case lack of. Apparently worked really well on Terra. Did they not have the same problem with HDD's up there in the first days?
Oh well back to the underater drawing board.
Prefer my piss to be brown/amber and fizzy. .
Time for the Pub.
Yip, had the same. Customer complained some keys were not working... Amazing what formic acid can do to ribbon cables. So many ants in there.
Can of Black Flag in the pocket
Government jobs anyone...
Have not noticed any where in the world retrenchment of Goverment positions quite the opposite in fact . In the private sector oh yes, silly private sector doing inane things like growing food, manufacturing ,selling etc. that will teach them.
In the pocket is a job for life card.
Have diamond coated glass on our POS Grocery scanners. After 10 years of use you can barely see a scratch on the glass.
Cool picture of the sun man....
Paris, cause she knows how to fix this world. Quote "Wear happy clothes" Smart blond lady.
My thoughts exactly. I was thinking along the lines of a Blakes Seven braclet with display, Plenty of room there for a larger touch screen(s) around the wrist or touch pad...
Just snap it on.
BOFH take that!
Bloody idiots and their tats... Made my day! LOL!
"May they live in interesting times" Old chinese curse.
Paris cause I know she has a tat, somewhere.
Made my Friday afternoon mate or mate(ess)..
Cheers and beers from the South Pacific.
Let me through!
That explains why Ipod sales are so high. it's all plot really.
Got problems now, wait until electric vehicles are rife it is going to look like a bowling alley out there.
Been Done Before!
Yes I remember that some 30 years ago, think it was called "French Comics" a collection of hillarious offbeat COMIX.
Well I for one do not not want a plastic vagina to blow up on me! The QA problem?
Time for sedative... pass me another beer.
Chris in La La land (Somewhere in the South Pacific)
That'll impress the wife "Look how fast I can copy a CD for you"
and oh can I have $5000 for the electricity, DEAR!
4PM and time for some really cold ones.
Mines the coconut deflector coat...
Looking at the Large Hadron Collider site their elegant high tech high effiiciecny AC to DC power systems are indeed available (at a price).
We will have to let the bean counters figure the cost benifit ratio, I guess.
Yes DC is more efficient than AC reticulation (resistive losses only), way to go...
Reminds me of the Telephone Exchange I worked in some 35 years ago, DC bus bars down the equipment racks powered via the battery room.
"Rocky Mountaing High..." John was way ahead of his ahh just forgot.
Mine the one with the secret pockets.
Just the thing for Mr Magoo...
I get my coat because I'm taking the tube home.
Sorry kids I know you are interested in ... but Daddy cannot build a digital crystal set!
I used to work in Wellington Library (NZ) as a Comp temp tech. Never did see ANY of the "Librarians" exiting there after the doors were closed. Na na na na na na!

Kewl Simon. I for one nominate you for the Poolitzer prize...sic.
!.2 M What?
1.2M x 80 lines (a guess) =96M lines. Holy CR*P. Thats about 3 x more lines than the XP operating system.. No wonder the US of A needs more that 350,000 lawyers to run the "show".
Chris, expat KIWI in Samoa
Stir fry... just turned on my soldering iron.
All the best to you and yours Simon.
Poor Comtech Sod...
Yip 6 years... Hold on a sec. This program has performed... 6 years is a long time for an eX to Pee. An XP, just old water.
Chris, expat KIWI
Not the BOFH and PFY surely.
Chris, expat KIWI
Fantastic! I concur. Brilliant as always.
Cheers and beers (ice cold)
