Nice things become normal things
Nah, one was seriously affronted at not being offered single malt.
For some it seems that the base pogba is vastly over inflated while the NHS requires long term investment rather that the shorter term payback of booze and arms that often includes NHS clients.
Is that the old Routemaster or the new one?
Good scanning system
I've seen someone operating very good CV scanning system.
Any applicants will have read 'No photos with this application'.
As soon as envelopes (it was a while back) were opened they were checked for photo's, if a photo was included the whole lot was binned without being read.
"If they can't fucking read the application form I can't be fucking bothered to read either. I need people who do not just scan but understand, this is a fucking hospital, for fuck's sake".
This is after getting fed up with people seeing the job description and assuming it was a PC World type hard drive replacement service and not a proper IT wonk job.
Much as I might be in favour . . .

Bank to Mansion House?
Have they been too busy snooping on us, to eager to spunk millions over 'anti-terrorist' toys to look after their own house?
Is that 'use by' or 'best before' or ?
Read that wrong
I thought I read it as being a mass being aimed at the surface of Mars for ejecta experiments.
Why waste on life-support?
My IoT toaster is taking the piss
It keeps making toast with images of religious characters on them.
Hmm . . .
If there is 'no AI' why do the floating SpaceX landing platforms all have names of GCU's from Ian Bank's Culture series?
(it's because they can't trust stupid humans to handle all the tasks)
Re: "Windows 10 has done very well at home"
"It takes a company with an IT department and dedicated staff to keep MS in check these days."
Really? most folks just wander through 'settings' telling W10 to bugger off.
Other than the usual crap that home users have -- like finding no uninstall for Macafee, W10 doesn't seem to have been any hassle.
" Pre-emptively bowing the knee to our future robot overlords, Sacke said: “I hesitate to use the film analogy but it’ll be like Terminator: Rise of the Machines.” "
Toner more like it:
" "See, there's mites around all the time. They use sparkles to talk to each other," Harv explained. "They're in the food and water, everywhere. And there's rules that these mites are supposed to follow. They're supposed to break down into safe pieces... But there are people who break those rules [so the] Protocol Enforcement guys make a mite to go out and find that mite and kill it. This dust - we call it toner - is actually the dead bodies of all those mites." "
Oh, please don't put me in jail . . .

Does paperless mean more time?
Currently going through process that will end up with radiotherapy to deal with prostate cancer.
The ambulance chasers have instilled procedures where my GP gets a letter each time I see a consultant.
If my GP gets one each time a patient on thier books sees a specialist or has a hospital appointment then they do not have time to do thier job properly as they are inundated with paper.
How this would be any different, I fail to see.
The GP will still have to tick a box somewhere, mark it 'read or whatever'.
I can only forsee another round of IT consultancy firms making money.
The higher you aim in an organisation, the easier it is for click-bait to work.
There are football club owners who would regard something that size as a day-boat.
Will they stop at the border and go "sorry, before Brexit we'd have just carried on but now . . . "
and over at the entertainment industry . . .
as there are numerous Chinese knock-off of lighting and sound desks, the number of BSOD displayed at gigs, conferences etc. is maybe bigger than you'd think
Re: Its a Canival FFS, not a Police Identity Parade. Leave People be.
They've been recording faces at Carnival for decades.
I remember when they went from a battery of stills cameras on the WestWay overpass to adding video cameras.
It's important to remember the history of the area and the old, old antipathy between the police and the black community. It was a really run down, area way back.
Re: Time for some face paint
They could try the 'must have something to hide' gamble but there are plenty of lawyers who would question the need to stop people joining in the festivities, fortunately.
or nicked for a spliff a few times.
It ain't just yer cardboard cutout, the stereotype.
Carnival just is.
It doesn't(didn't) belong to anyone but the local people - no church, no state, no royalty -- just people.
Depends how many Nuns you take off first
"Facebook, Twitter and Google are to blame for terrorism, say MPs"
and there was me thinking it was mainly down to religion.

If its the 2012 stuff then possibly.
Many of those who clamoured (or were given tickets?) for the first flight will have snuffed it by the time the 'SS Branson' does its first proper flight.
"His Majesty [no – ed] had been convicted of purchasing stolen card numbers from Russian hackers, then using the cards to make purchases from his own online music service and DJ equipment store, the "profits" of which he then cashed out and used to go on a spending spree "

That awful thing that is something representing nothing.

Re: Poor article
You have made one (1, uno) post and managed to totally miss what was being said in the article.
This is El Reg, we've done all the 'engine' stuff before, if you'd beeen around earlier you'd understand the 'boring' bit.
Please don't behave like the person who only goes the the pub once a year and only watches football once a year and doesn't settle in to the game before asking which City player is Rooney.

Re: Ha ha ha haaaa
Thank you for your erudite and concise input, Nigel.
Another failure in the run up to the Leasership bun(g)fight.
Many Tory ministers and Ex-ministers have been seen prancing about before chucking hats in the ring.
IDS, Boris 'the unfeasbly useless' Johnson etc.
Not to be confused with the EU thang but it all seems to be wrapped up together for the main contenders.
All the Republicans are worried about is links to gay porn sites missing and missing links to 'male escorts'.
M$ update yesterday.
When do you need apps to look at porn?
(this does not include that fact that we no longer have 'programmes' but 'apps' instead)
Re: "plunder older Android devices through infected porn apps"
'Beleiver's make really easy marks.
They are programmed to accept and obey.
