They should employ me as the product technical designer, then at least they would be in the running for a good product.
In fact, if I'm too pricey, they could employ my manbag cat Tiddles .. she has a keen eye for things like this.
Paris cuz she could be my manbag pussy if Tiddles goes to work for Sonny .. err Sony
What about the proven link between violence and eating bread? Most violent people eat bread, not all people who eat bread are violent but there is definately a link there somewhere.
Paris because she has a better grasp on reality than these idiots.
The worm turns
As ever, developers try to push more and more functionality into applications whilst forgetting that the simple to use applications are the most accepted. I'll stick to 1.4 - it does exactly what I need and works with all my portable devices, it's clean and intuitive... no need to change.
Yea, that's for apps that aren't signed already - try using that method on say .. rotateme2 by Samir. Samir has protected his copyright by signing it - and this stops you from installing the application due to the way Symbian operate their nanny signing system. It requires I get a dev certificate to do it - for which you pay cash to the craphole company trying to fleece the customers who have bought phones and own them outright... I still don't need their crappy OS restrictions but I have to live with it until I can change - that is soon thankfully :)
Paris because - well, it's Paris! - she probably has shares in Symbian.
yea, it can do things other 'OSes' can only dream about and its users can only 'dream' about owning the damn phone this crap is installed on.... if you own a Symbian OS phone and want to install apps that are rightly signed by freeware devs for copyright reasons - but kept free? .. you can't unless you or the dev pays some shitty tax to Symbian for a certificate. All this is twisted under the guise of 'protecting the phone user' .. bullshit.
If it were that simple, Symbian would operate a sign off process where the owner of the phone agrees to waive any warranty or help if they install stuff that hoses the phone ... I for one do not need to be told that it's possibly too dangerous to allow me to do what I want, unless I pay £250 - whereby it magically becomes ok to do so.
Same old nannying crap, the OS is dead, buy something else that doesn't stamp on freedom of choice and allows you to own the bloody phone in the first place.
Not everyone is as stupid with technology as the Symbian management, where you have techno-retards advising normal techno-savvy people.
So sod off Symbian, you can only dream of being as free and useful as other 'OSes' because your product line model is shite.
Paris because she is about as useful as a Symbian powered phone.
Google is different..
At least google provides something in exchange which is more useful than advertising alone (completely useless anyway imho, I haven't seen an ad I didn't want to see for over 2 years now and counting)... going under the guise of being a benefit is just corporate bollocks.
Sod them all as they know fuck all. I bet the CEO of NebuAd has been the victim of adware from the CEO of Phorm at some point. Throw them to the lions if the lions can stomach eating sub human scum for breakfast.
@working from home
They have thought about that, it's called a business line, the T&C's clearly state that using the home broadband product for business activities is not allowed.
I've just realised I haven't seen an unwanted advert on the internet for about a year.
Maybe not in a lot of states; but I've witnessed a practice prevalent in Nevada whereby shoppers park up in the local Wallmart or precinct and leave the engine running whilst they go for a good old shop/hoof manicure. The only reason being - it keeps the aircon running for their return. Presumably it helps to keep their choc ices cold for the journey home.
vented patios - heat rises after all. Outside a pub you could use a heated vent system that would make the air rise and also take smoke with it.. maybe using hot air from dryer exhausts or MEP's buried below it.
One could also fuel it with bigots or other people who believe that the UK reducing their carbon footprint to zero will make any difference to the overall figure.
I'm glad I live in a small hamlet where nobody is kicked outside a pub for anything, let alone smoking (ventilated btw) and god forbid an MEP should come in and make a fuss, they'd end up in a pig feeder the next day.
I find more amusing is that people actually want to watch the drivel that is produced by Hollywood nowadays... I'm sick and tired of the Tom and Jerry approach to all films produced where the good guy wins (cue floaty music) all kids survive (and perhaps have a hand in or solve) the destruction of Earth or similar.
Balls to them.
It's about time they produced a movie whereby nice guys died, kids get killed and the dodgy bloke with the bat gets off scott free.
Films like that would never make a dime in HAmerica however as they are devoid of reality and thought... they prefer to leave the Cinema happy and knowing good triumphs over evil, at least until they get carjacked on the way out.
I call it, at least it's more eye pleasing than the burger flipping paint dribbling scum which usually attempt to make a point .. if only it could be read and understood perhaps. I have seen a couple of pieces which aren't easily found *hint..be on a boat*
If all graffiti was as objective, opinionated and satirical as his ... ah well it ain't gonna happen unfortunately, you'll all have to get used to the bland 'sigs' and uninformed crap.
My favourite local effort is "Socity sucks" .. yea well done muppet.
Paris because I wnt to see Banksy do a Paris motif!
and I kid you not
CD data transfer in light of the fiasco recently is to be encrypted with Winzip.
So you make nmap illegal, which ironically is a tool used by both criminal and security activities. .. The security people can't use it due to the law and the criminals will just stop using it also? Utter nonsense, I wish the government would employ people who actually know the difference between reality and stupidity instead of just asking a 'suit' for an uninformed opinion.
Ultracrepidarians the lot of them. (including Paris)

"So which is more dangerous : a 18 year old with >80mg of blood and driving like a lunatic or an 18 year old steering a 24 ton, 72 foot narrowboat at about 3mph?"
Put it this way - I can stop my 58 foot narrow boat with my hands but I wouldn't want to try and stop an 18 year old doing 80mph in a car...

Firstly: Yup, I'd like for Julian (Head of programmes) to be in the midst of his own sad little tale, I'd be there if I could snapping every detail for the tosser and bring it up for all to see every 6 months for the next decade, just to see how he likes it.
If as he claims, sensitivity was the prime factor he'd pull the bloody docu-repeatery and get on with some real journalism instead of joining the tired old worn out bandwagon.
I for one am sick to the back bloody teeth of hearing about this woman. 10 years for gods sake! She meant nothing to me at all and still doesn't... acknowledged that she means something to someone, but really, it's over the top.
She is dead, leave it alone.

I think they should look into the classification of WMD, or are they suggesting a thermonulcear or atomic bomb threat was phoned through?
Sounds as though the investigation was somewhat hasty.
