About bloody time!
Mid March and we're only up to the third instalment of the year.... I shall be writing to ask for my money back.
...on the Avon and Somerset version you get a little warning saying "Internet Explorer may perform slowly with crime statistic, it is recommended that you Firefox or Chrome.
The chart looks like one on purpose?
Anyone want to bet against them coming up with some kind of bribe for anyone leading the charge for cards?
Maybe a free second identity?
Can I just check something please. Presumably "full counter-surveillance lock-down mode" involves going to the pub and staying there?
"Naughty things merchant"?
Did the lude-o-generator pack up or something?
Strange. I don't remember seeing many "Where's the IT angle?" comments re the resurrection of HHGTTG.
I wonder why that would be?
...that the messing about with those big hadron things has transported us to a new reality.
Not bad but...
My favourite is a guy I worked with for a while who was called James Timoney. He did, of course, prefer the name Jim.
I have to admit to humming the tune mercilessly.
What's that Buster?
You say little Ginger's in the street cleaner?
@ 'special license'
The closing screen of the vid says "Armed 24/7/365 military trained Switch employed security staff"
So who's the biggest bunch of arseholes... the government of Burma or Zimbabwe?
Is there a prize for the first person to get stars to align to say "Bollocks"?

It could have been a cunning ploy
Can't believe nobody else has posted this yet....
That old man's a killer!
I still don't know...
...whether that extreme lesbian site at www.theregister.co.uk is going to be legal or not.
Simple. In the next 'extreme porn' story just refer to the Indy as a "specialist donkey-fetish magazine"
...doesn't really matter if they're hiring people to figure the things out.
The solution to usenet spam is just to get a decent newsreader and possibly a proxy as described here http://improve-usenet.org/ Filter out anything from googlegroups and you're back with a nice, clean news service.
It is a bit strange that Google don't appear to care that they're trashing the usefulness of one of their products by allowing Google groups accounts to send messages, but that's their problem.
Guys, you need to get out more
Reg hacks aroused by graphs? ....oooh... would you look at the segments on that.... hubba hubba
It's OK mate. As we speak the other four are being sent your home address via a misdirected TNT delivery. They should be there at about ten.
Is it safe?
I applaud them. A proactive step to bettering the methods of handling this type of data.
How could the data be any safer if someone had known where it was? Given the apparent complete lack of ability common amongst civil servants to not accidentally send sensitive data out to their nearest chip shop, the only sensible way of handling it was indeed to completely forget where they put it.
There are a bunch of these on YouTube. My favourite is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nh7gm4jj6c but that's probably because I'm a West Ham fan.
and just to add....
...the film itself is superb. If you haven't seen it, then you should do.
Surely the answer is obvious....
....massive increases in budgets for IS projects.
You're suggesting that the best way forward is simply to just not hire you?
And a general off-topic comment .... what's the best suggested El Reg unit for the amount of volts to apply to people who stick an addition o into the word lose?
... reminds me of when they did the same thing to SQL Enterprise Manager when we were trialling it last year. I do seem to recall shouting at them something along the lines of "....and what if it does the same thing to explore.exe?" Glad to see that they're learning by their mistakes.
@ Rick Brasche
You seem to have forgotten to take your pills today.
As one of the 'complete idiots' can I ask why I need to provide any proof? If you want to kill someone then I'd like to think that it would be up to you to come up with a reason or two why you think it'd be a good idea.
Away you go....
...just don't install Kaspersky in the first place. Given my experience with them, that's much the best plan.
Could I just point out that I'd prefer to gnaw off my own arm from the elbow down than receive anything by Mr Clarkson. Except a copy of his suicide note.
What's that traffic option? Only available for US maps?
Do we need a unit of laziness...
...for those who find the effort of typing a couple of words in the 'Search' box a bit too much?
...what should Santa say if, in best Xmas tradition, three prostitutues turn up?
