....but I've seen better.
Almost every single broadband company I've been under has suggested visiting their technical support website when my connection drops out.
We really need a fail icon of some sort.
A whole new martial art...
I know Chav-fu!
@The Fuzzy Wotnot
I normally abhor internet contractions but this one is really good. I suspect in many sheeple's pockets, you will find a copy of the Daily Fail.
In other news...
Several key members of staff from the Office for National Statistics were found strangled today. Police say the only lead they have is a recorded conversation in which the killer states, "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
More at ten.
One day people will begin to realise that the oh-so-annonymous comment you post on your Twitter feed or Failbook account THAT HAS YOUR NAME IN HUGE LETTERS OVER IT *will* eventually bite you in the ass...
Twit-O-Tron strikes again!
I have a cure for World of Warcrack....
And its called Wrath of The Lich King.
Seriously, 2 months after installing it, I can't even face logging into the game now =/.
Windows Repair fixes all your problems!
Unless you happen to be dealing with a wireless network, Vista and a Belkin N Router, in which case contact the person who administrates your network.
Maybe they should have that as a new system error message for Windows 7 "Well, I made a half-assed attempt to fix your network but after switching the adaptor on and off I'm out of ideas. Over to you."
In other news....
...a ten year old boy was recently arrested for the savage murder of a priest. Revelling in his shameless murder of a Warrior Priest of Sigmar, witnesses claim that he bellowed "LULZ PWNED UR AZZ" and spared no thought for his innocent victims friends or family, who are believed to be devestated by the death.
A worrying trend for the future
I really hope the Yoof of Taday (tm) doesn't get influenced by Fallout 3 otherwise they'll be running around setting off nuclear warheads at the behest of anyone in a dodgy business suit.
Any chance of a mushroom cloud icon?
We'll all end up smacking the stuffing out of divers with scary little girls chasing after us with huge syringes.
I suspect the work of the T-Virus.
An evil affliction that strikes innocent webpages and corrupts them into something horrible while hordes of zombified "t"s run rampant, infecting innocen websie....
THEY'RE HERE! Run for the hills!
Concerned about Daily Fail hacks....
I really worry about these guys sometimes. They write the most depressing and despairing stories day in, day out. Have you thoughtless swine ever given any thought to how hard their lives must be?
"Well, first of all I wrote about paedos running rampant, then about the collapse of financial stability and I still need to finish the global warming and the "Fruit gives you cancer" stories. Oh, and can you send the cynaide my way once you're finished with it, or shall I retrieve it from your corpse?"
*Insert flame war here*
Any chance of a fanboy icon? Perhaps a picture of a geek frothing at the mouth like Cujo.
Where's the IT angle???
There is no IT angle to this story. What is it doing here? I am removing The Register from my bookmarks. Please cancel my subscription. I am also dissatisfied with today's weather. Please make the weather the way I like it. Goodbye.
To all those that think this book has a hope in helll..
'Nuff said =/
Yup, my first one was a CPC6128 - lasted me for about 10 years. I'm damn lucky if I can squeeze 2 years out of the laptops I use these days.
I was also about one of the 20 people to buy a GX4000 - Amstard's answer to the Megadrive and Nintendo. A grand total of some 20 or so games, which makes it marginally more successful than the Gizmondo.
I also used to read Amstrad Action and there was a less than flattering comic strip at the back about Mr Sugar - Sugarman, or something like that.
Huzzah for half-assed ineffectual public bodies!
I have a 3G modem from Vodafone - I'm just waiting to hear from them why my latency is 2569ms on HSPDA connection speed and 800ms on 2G.
Should make for good reading ^^
@ Mike Richards
"Any chance the Reg and its readers could help sponsor some of the work to save the vultures?"
I whole-heartedly agree with this idea - I'm sure there are a few captive breeding programmes running, even one or two in the UK and a Paypal link pledging a quid or two to such a program would go for miles with the number of hits El Reg gets in a week.
Btw, does El Reg's Vulture actually have a name?
Michael Bay lost all credibility with me when he transformed a beloved children's cartoon series into American Pie with an overdose of CGI.
