BTO computers are not excluded....
provided that they are constructed from off the shelf parts. Anything that has been permanently customised such as iPod engraving is excluded.
Send multiple cheques of $0.01
To the value requested, costs them more to cash than they'd get, but at least you've offered to return the money.
Hang on a minute....
Surely if these MP's have nothing to hide,they have nothing to fear from the police exercising their powers.
Anyway, that's the bullshit we get told when it applies to us lowly peasants.
"not least because the only way to make F1 racing truly green would be to stop doing it, and nobody wants to see that."
I'm not to fussed about how green they make it or not but I'm all for stopping the dull, monotony that comes every other Sunday(ish).
It's strange that whenever I hear (or read) a politician say invaluable, they're talking about something worthless.
4 magic words
Shouldn't the content of that letter be available to anyone making a request under the freedom of information act?
(In my wide-eyed innocence, I'm of course assuming the Government would play fair and honour such a request and not try to weasel it's way out of it)
Hang on a moment
So converting from US price:
(($200 / 1.78 ) * 1.10 ) * 1.175 = £145 of which Mr Brown takes £32 (10% Import duty, 17.5% VAT)
Current UK price £149.99 @ Amazon.
I need to sit down, UK consumers not being priced gouged for once.
"Alternatively, what if you answer the phone using speakerphone (or just have a loud handset) "
Now that's got to be worth 10 years right there, forget about the content of the call.
RE: 7.7 feet?
"The country that retained feet, miles, etc. is the one that has had the most successful space program."
Because when NASA use imperial measurements thing go so well......
Uh, yes, I'm looking for a friend of mine. Last name Jass. First name Hugh.
Moe: Uh, hold on, I'll check. [calling] Hugh Jass! Can somebody check the men's room for a "Huge ass"?!
Hugh Jass: Uh, I'm Hugh Jass.
Moe: Telephone. [hands over the receiver]
Hugh Jass: Hello, this is Hugh Jass.
Bart: [surprised] Uh, hi.
Hugh Jass: Who's this?
Bart: Bart Simpson.
Hugh Jass: Well, what can I do for you, Bart?
Bart: Uh, look, I'll level with you, Mister. This is a prank call that sort of backfired. I'd like to bail out right now.
Hugh Jass: All right. Better luck next time. [hangs up] What a nice young man.
Let us not forget
That businesses charge VAT on some services so the Government could be profiting by up to £1.1bn - no wonder the regulators are toothless.
Is there a party I can morally vote for?
I think that you'll find that the government will always get in, who ever you vote for!
Although in between Labour/Tories and the wingnuts you've got the Lib Dems.
Re: Just remember where "hungarian notation" came from!
Can't they just buy the info of the DVLA for a couple of quid anyway like all of those shame parking enforcers.
Making it a criminal offence
Would change the burden of proof from the balance of probabilities associated with civil actions to "Beyond reasonable doubt" as needed in criminal actions which traditionally needs to be evaluated against much higher standards.
Also criminal actions should only be brought when the state (CPS) has a reasonably probability of successful prosecution.
So from (civil evidence):
an IP address associated with you has accessed a copyrighted work.
to (criminal evidence):
You personally were sat at your computer to which no one else has access, using it to connect to the internet through the modem/router that had been assigned with the IP address - no other computers were connected to the modem/router and the computer could not have been compromised with malware/virus at the time that IP address accessed the protected work.
Doesn't sound so bad to me.
Making the volunteering compulsory...
isn't that called conscription.
