Sure about that?
Given it's the BOFH I wouldn't be surprised that he'd remapped people's shortcut keys so Ctrl-F deletes all emails.
Ctrl-H, of course, electrifies something humourous.
Nice try, Mr Cameron, but I'm afraid you forgot to call us autistic too.
I hate that quote
It implies that there is a choice between Liberty and Safety.
Safety means not getting beaten up.
Liberty means not getting beaten up by the police.
You can't choose between these two things.
Re: What's so special about "democracy"?
Democracy is a neat method of making sure your leaders will later become ordinary citizens who will have to live with the laws that they passed.
Also there's some fancy stuff about pretending to be just and free and stuff. Whatever.
Hard to say. They voted heavily against it as a purely domestic measure, which is why Brown took it to Europe to force it through in the first place. Whether they will remember this ... no, probably not.
About bloody time
Can they offer a password recovery service too?
Re: 1 in 16 boys? seams low
Oh come on: the sort of dog-eared top-shelf muff magazines we used to have in our yoof are light-years away from the kind of hard core easily accessible online nowadays.
Which is why back in our youth we had to supplement it behind the bike sheds.
Seriously, I don't understand the rush to go back to those days.
Re: Terrorism laws being used for something other than combating terrorism?
No, anti-organised crime laws being used for organised crime.
RIPA came about before Terrorism was a buzzword for why you should get your own way.
In other news,
Teen pregnancy is at a 40 year low.
Just thought I'd mention that detail.
Re: Tinplate toy search engine second!!!!
Yahoo serves up Bing's results. Why use Yahoo in that case?
Re: Perhaps the headline should have been,...
It is indeed the wrong type of bottom in French. Just ask Google Translate to translate Cul from French to English. It will give you an American slang term for it.
The Beano did it years ago.
With a remote controlled helicopter.
Good way to get publicity, you must admit.
Yes, they absolutely already knew. Typical Labour bullshit (same as Tory bullshit only painted red)
Sod terrorism, they should treat it as photography. That'll see the bastards suffering.
Re: Shark attacks and ice cream
Which is not junk science. There is a clear common cause between shark attacks and ice cream sales.
Re: Big fat juicy target
Sounds more like his mistake was to overdo it.
If he'd become known for resource hog routines being left running overnight then occasional mining sessions running overnight wouldn't have caught anyone's notice. But he didn't do this.
I agree with everything you say but I cannot work out how you reach the conclusion that his own death was not part of his psychopathic plan. Had he been executed he'd have the same place in Norwegian history that Gary Gilmore has in American history. That was what he wanted but sod that, he's not getting it.
Re: @ Ken Hagen
If he was able to talk his way out of jail so many times what makes anybody think he wouldn't have been able to talk his way out of the death penalty just as casually?
Re: Execute the bastard
He wanted to be executed. All the more reason to keep him alive. Anyone who would follow his example will know that they are following a whiny shit who can't live without his hand lotion instead of a brave pioneer who wasn't afraid to die for his beliefs.
Re: He previously complained bitterly about the lack of hand lotion.
He also complained, before his imprisonment, that Norwegians aren't tough enough and that there needs to be harsh punishment for whiners.
Accede to that demand.
Re: "FAST is yet to come across..."
Qualified legal advisors get trained not to give 100% assurance of anything. If they do they're asking for trouble.
Re: "No, I CAN'T write code myself"
This is where she writes "Click", isn't it?
Computer illiterate political cheerleaders driving IT policies?
Absolutely. How much of this goes to The Indelicates? How much to Priscilla Hernandez? How do they choose?
I remember this going on with the RIAA actually, they were collecting fines from the likes of napster to compensate artists being pirated, then indies got in touch with proof they'd been pirated on napster and asking for their share. You can guess the RIAA's response.
Re: Thats Genius
Except these days Yahoo is Bing.
So this means you now only have to search Google to use both. Nice boost for Google there.
So don't play Minmatar
Minmatar are norse themed. Feel free to play one of the other three factions.
Re: 40% of the characters are female but 97% male player?
The most interesting figure is that women are roughly as likely to play male characters as male players are.
Can you imagine what the female game experience would be like if you had to advertise your real-world gender in game?
Re: Glad this doesn't happen everytime someone forgets to pay the bills
"I mean what's the point in going in 0.3 space if you don't expect to get blown to bits..."
High sec research facilities always had months-long queues back when I played the game, so I did all my research in Aunenen, which was perma-camped and therefore had no research queues at all because only a complete idiot would risk taking something as valuable as a blueprint original into the system.
Never got caught. Had to log off after returning to hisec one time because my hands were shaking too much but I had an interceptor min-maxed to run away from things and it did what I designed it to do.
Re: What a monumental waste of time and money
If you want to not waste money on the Reg then turn off your computer. You'll save on your electric bills.
What a monumental waste of time and money
says the commentard.
Just pointing that out, just typing this is a waste of time and money.
Re: Reg, don't join in with 'troll', you're better than that
Thing is, from the wider online community, you'd be amazed how few of us care about the media painting trolls in a bad light. It's almost like we're sick of them and wish they'd just go away.
Re: It's trolls.
Okay, to make it simple.
If you want men to be able to go on the pill so that women don't have to be the one taking health risks in a sexual relationship when men are willing to accept the risks on their behalf, you are a men's rights activist. Yes, the male pill exists but it transfers risks from another patient and thus is deemed too controversial.
If you oppose child genital mutilation, you are a men's rights activist.
If you believe that, in a divorce, the children should go to the parent best able and willing to support them, you are a men's rights activist.
If you believe that, when a man is accused of rape, he shouldn't face charges, you are an arsehole.
Men's rights campaigners are interested in things like health and child wellbeing. Trolls talk shit because they're bored. Hope that helps.
The Scunthorpe test
The basic Scunthorpe test is to run common dictionary terms past a filter and see if it nabs the wrong ones. It doesn't usually extend to testing CamelCase phrases because there are too many of them.
Been suggested before
Dump enough Bitcoins into the market, their price tumbles, criminals don't have enough money any more.
Is accepted by most password regimes. Just pick a special character to use as a space.
Re: The worst book ever?
Germans no doubt look on our attempt to use long words and think "That's cute."
The worst book ever?
What's that one Judge Pickles did that won the worst sex ever award? Probably that.
Mein Kampf should be required reading in debate classes. It's full of textbook examples of all the logical fallacies you can imagine. Plus when people invoke Reducto ad Hitleram you can correct them that he never actually believed that at all.
Hitler was very much an antidisestablishmentarian.
Well yes, that's what happens if you have unsafe sex.
Can we just start calling Mumsnet the Unsafe Sex Lobby and have done with it?
You chose to have children. Nobody forced you into it. Why weren't you planning on how to handle their access to the internet?
All my colleagues with small children have detailed plans. Why should one irresponsible adult force the responsible population to change to suit them?
Can we just start referring to them as the unsafe sex lobby and have done with it?
Re: Surely this is endangering children?
Nothing new there, this kind of thing has been endangering children for years.
Hardly surprising when you consider this was forced through by a group identified as having all had unprotected sex.
Re: There's a trick for that
All this time I've been using post-it notes and nobody told me!
Re: Clarke was right
Actually that was Poe.
Re: You're allowed more booze than that.
Which is exactly why doctors are more prone to problem drinking. They know the guidelines are bullshit and thus ignore them and drink to excess.
Re: false assumption?
On the contrary, what has happenned is that children have started waiting until they are much older before having sex. Why we want to backtrack on this is a mystery.
