News just in -- China goes dark as XP upgrade fails to find a single authenticated copy.
Re: Amazon Skeet
"In a country where everyone has the right to bear arms, I can imagine that Amazon will lose a few of these drones every year."
I think that was covered yesterday -- apparently not a chance due to ordnance choices and availability.
Look at the box
2014 version gets me a '404'
2013 -- March, more plastic than the coffin fittings.
Has it really gone?
I suspect it's still in one piece but the authorities are suppressing the information and using secret tech to make it look like there's nothing there.
We demand to know what they are hiding from us, what is so important that we are kept in the dark?
Is it the return of Jesus, albeit a tad early?

"All those shortcuts like Alt+F4 no longer work, I actually paid £££ for a 3rd party app to get a proper start menu"
I must be doing something wrong - not had any issues like that.

First huge tile is 'Desktop'?

Re: dirty snowball + close proximity to sun --> dirt cloud
You never know -- it always amazed me how a Baked Alaska survived.
Re: Will this be extended to alcohol?
Or wraps of paper labelled 'powder'?
Re: I wouldn't be surprised...
Hmm, how about using an old baccy tin?
(along with some papers, card, bag etc.)
"P.S. In my youth as an appreciate in Pompey Dockyard, the matelots used to be issued 200 'blue liners' a week, "
I was, for a short time (discharge by purchase (no, not THAT)) employed by her Maj too be a trainee matelot.
At the age of 17 I was bringing home orders for cigs and baccy -- I was too young for the 'tot' ration so I got sweets instead.

Re: Prove him wrong once and for all.
"Well, one cheap(ish) way to prove him wrong would be to organise 150,000 skeptics. Drop $10 each in the pot, buy one and crack it open."
All you'll find is a cat, probably.
Re: Don't stand too close
"doesn't require use of a turban to generate electricity"
Vague reference to India's Thorium research?
Coffin' on Boffin?
Ah, bring back 'Mobe'!
Re: Could be a lot worse
"and it has never been hard to get the hand-wringing, grauniad-reading, polenta-munching residents of Islington"
I'm not sure you have any idea about most of Islington.

Re: "Is Duncan-Smith right?"
A quickie from Wiki:
Oh, his first name is 'George', the 'DS' bit is the family name.
"His claim that he studied at the University of Perugia (founded 1308) was later found to be false after an investigation by the BBC. His office subsequently admitted that he attended the Italian Università per Stranieri (founded 1921) in Perugia for a year but he did not obtain any qualifications or finish his exams. In 1975 he attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and was subsequently commissioned into the Scots Guards. Duncan-Smith's biography, on the Conservative Party website, claimed he was "educated at Dunchurch College of Management" but following questioning by the BBC his office confirmed that he did not get any qualifications there either, stating that he completed six separate courses lasting a few days each, adding up to about a month in total."
Re: So what?
" If you were walking down the street and saw a vagina just sitting there, by itself, on the sidewalk it would be really disturbing. I mean, what would you do with it? Is it ambulatory? Did someone drop it? Is it sentient? If I touch with my boot will my charge card be billed the regular fee plus a fetish charge?"

Re: One point that is often conveniently forgotten ...
Some parents used to hide away to smoke, now many don't as they think its not harmful.
Has the highly addictive nature of nicotine been removed?
Re: Blocking tool
"nice try, but I'm not going to an unverified website posted in an article about cryptolocker, any more than I will be opening attachments which I haven't requested or are expecting."
Erm, I did that rare thing -- Googled 'cryptoprevent'.
Milk Drop dropped?
I only use WinAmp for the visualisation stuff via line in.
Anything else out there that is as easy to use?
"But they buy lots of weapons from us so hey were all friends here."
No they don't
They buy police enforcement equipment from us.
And they certainly don;t buy any 'interrogation' gear to use on the foreign workers, either.
Re: An alternative
"As a cyclist, maybe some peddling might be in order. See if you can organise a set of pedals hooked up to a flywheel and use that to drive an alternator."
There was a static bike you could use for cycling GTA instead of driving - screw office work.

"You'd be amazed at what it shakes free."
He did say he went on to running after a while . . .
Simulates that desperation and hope that the last one in loaded up a full magazine of extra soft.
"Because it's easier to *refine* your search if it's not overwritten by the web page you visit."
and adding your own preferences of search engines makes life much easier.

Re: Ooops. Can you say "Tipping point"?
After that nothing really matters - no more arguments.
Bloody forriners, stealing our energy, slowing us down when it's almost winter.
And now they are going in to Our own God-given space, taking it all over - no common sense these days. I blame Gordon Brown!
(goes off to post Kipper- type tirade on the Mail's website)
Nice one folks -- go for the scenic route and save a fortune.
Piss off- it's mine!
I already own the moon, all of it.
I had an email some time back with an offer to purchase so i took advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity and I now have a piece of paper that says it's mine.
There is a collection of unwanted local space junk I have on E-Bay (buyer collects)

Re: Which setting do I need to choose...
" Also I'd like to block any pictures or Theresa May? Is this possible?"
I've got a filter that blocks any image on Facebook with 'zuckerberg' as part of the file name.

Phoenix is fine to eat - but like some curries it's a bugger when it comes out the next day.

Yup, two horns in one go.

Re: "Anime cartoons"
Well, there is a market out there -- those people who don't have the ability to take matters in to their own hands.
"Go down the pub, load up the Control-a-prole (tm) app, and make your puppy dance!"
The image of the 'Battling Robots' game just popped in my head -- though even without the remote control many seem to have the 'Weekend punch-up' subroutine embedded in ROM.
Oh, don't forget the pay-per-view from the council's CCTV system.
"No, not if they're onstage with Sting, Phil Collins, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber."
With the usual 'concern for the poor and helpless until offered shit-loads of money' stance of many 'stars' it's only a matter of time.
"Oh Sting, where is thy death?"
"Christianity is actually the most persecuted faith in the world, despite what a few media outlets would have us believe. Angela Merkel in the USA today also talks of this. Remember, this is the country that adds additional taxes if you profess to be part of a religion, so kind of ironic, but fair"
When the USA stops promoting reactionary Western religious nutters such as WBC and other countless box of frogs outfits with the simple mechanism of a tax fiddle then Christianity might start looking is if it is not a bunch of two-faced money-grabbing control-freaks. They slag off other religions for doing exactly the same things as themselves but for some reason because the Xtians have the 'real true' God everybody else is just plain wrong.
Who will be paying for all the materials required to feed the printer?
Presumably not those being 'generous' with the printer.
Re: Buffet the Hampie Slayer
" Do not under any circumstances watch the Buffy The Vampire Slayer Movie after the full TV series."
It is completely different form the TV stuff and the big scene in the school hall is really funny - as deliberately over the top as the big bar fight in Dusk til Dawn.

" I'm sure they'd do well in a burger bar."
But could you trust them?
They'd give you salmonella then charge you for the meds and sue your arse for falling over in their premises and bleeding in the floor.
An excuse at last
For those who really detest the things you can now cross the road to piss on them.
"Sorry mate, it's for your own good"
Twitter has just floated, Google have floated too.
But which is the bigger floater?
So, they need a something to attract flies -- I'm not sure I'd want to be near something smelling like a large tropical flower
