I wonder . . .
. . . how long it will be before their homepage is pwnd?
Re: Mel Brooks
"Anyone remember "The Producers"?"
Well, it is 'Springtime in Australia'
Almost a hands-on LOHAN experience
It's only words . . .
While working for a large and well-known telecomms company there was a company-wide block on any 'swearwords' used for passwords.
This missive can only have come from clueless management as some of my passwords changed to ones that were not blocked:
were a couple of favourites used in response to the emails.
Blimey, a couple of over-publicised spliffs and she's an bleedin' expert?
O.K. maybe a line of something as well)
Booze is the real culprit here -- how much 'social' stuff is done post-pub?
I won't be getting an achy-breaky heart over it.
"I won't lower myself to use this so called Facebook."
Not on Twitter or LinkedIn ?
Re: $10,000 ?? --dog's chance
I don't have a dog, either.
Or any number of bank accounts, ISP's, credit cards or Facebook account using my 'proper' email address.
Oh, nor have I made any accident claims
I've seen these in the spam box but -- faxes -via email ?
May be the fax is an email attachment - in PDF?
Having just about found enough dosh to set up the business and being understaffed usually results in several 'short-cuts' in running the business.
Far too many 'managers' of franchises shouldn't be put in charge of a tea cup ride at the fair - all they know comes from a 'business studies' course that convinced them they could take over the world.
I guess one of these things will be delivering my personal jet-pack or autogyro or atomic domestic cooker.
“A new scientific research paper is published nearly every 30 seconds
And, judging by some I've seen, most are of the 'DR' Gillian McKeith variety.
There seem to be a hell of a lot of people on the 'Alternative' circuit who release 'papers' and do a lot of lectures (PR jobbies) to the already converted.
They are published in journals that have a coverage that must reach, oooh, a dozen. Journals that are run by people who also host 'conferences' that are also PR jobbies.
The difference between these and the 'Doris'* circuit is waffer thin.
*Doris - collective name for mediums.
Re: Ceterum censeo NATO has to do something
As you say, there are two possibilities to consider. Until we have investigated thoroughly there is no point in unncecessarily causing alarm, when furher developments have been arrived at we will, of course, inform the public.
(we're not sure, politically, who to blame yet -- we screwed up over Russia and now over Syria so there is a need to find a scapegoat that (as yet) has insufficent clout to cause us trouble. )
Value for money
"For £120, you can meet myself and LOHAN rocket wrangler Paul Shackleton at Vulture Central in London,"
Considering the cost of coughing up to meet our esteemed Prime Minister for tea and cakes, a mere £120 seems far greater value.
(Is there a pub called 'Vulture Central'?)
Re: The branch-off into frankly bizarre constructions has gone too far.
"Castle of Anthrax"
And after the spanking . . .
Re: What's a dectector?
It's normally used by ants.
Is this Twitter doing a 'see how many friends I've got' like wot Facebook users used to?
Are we now to experience sad gits who wave bits of paper around that 'prove' how 'popular' they are? Some of those people just go on and on and onan onan onan onan . . .
David Icke was right?
Sign of the times
A while back the comments would be littered with Star Trek references.
It would appear that holograms are not compatible with Game of Thrones.
Where's Captain Kirk?
Re: I was thinking of another type of hologram
There is only one sock.
Quantum being what it is (or isn't), people do not lose a sock they are gaining one.
When that sock ends up in the washing machine it immediately goes to another machine, every other machine, turns in to a pair as it meets itself in the machine it started from - etc.
Re: Will We Take Away The Chinese OS ?
You'll be wanting to understand the menus next
Re: MARX OS, patched with MAO
Bloody cats already ffs!
Top marks to the proper boffin attire worm by your (our?) boffin chugger (or is it Kigger?)
The pipe is a bit Holmes-esque but still adheres to the rules of Boffin coture.
(The dog-on-string maybe taking it a bit too far as some may also expect the bofffin to stink of stale piss.)
That reminds me . . .
Lunar Lander, anyone?
Twits and twats
You don't have a Twtter account?
Even LinkedIn is now posing as an alternative.
Can you tell me the 'next big thing' so I can get my standardised moans in first? Ta.
Re: It's a MAD WORLD.
"Because the teenagers have decided that a career in "idiocy" is probably more exciting than a boring humbdrum job in an office."
This being t'internet and all that, try looking at comments about teenagers through the centuries -- they don't change.
The Greeks, Romans etc.etc. all have the same moans about teenagers.
Fortunatley, this doesn't look like it's going to stop - Teenagers will carry on being teenagers and really pissing off Groan Up's for centuries to come.
Re: Ads as Articles
Social Fixer on Facebook?
Filters within filters - loverly stuff
"Perhaps the Met were just using the Booleen method."
That's the 'Doreen' method of clairvoyance:
False OR True = CASH
(though it seems to always return False, CASH is the result)
"to all corners of the globe."
IS IS Baby
Love the rebranding but not sure about the promo vids.
Really need Barry Scott:
"We've changed our most popular product to give a more worldwide appeal.
We're out of Syria and will be seeing ya all real soon"
Eggs you on?

Prototype rocket explodes
Isn't that what they are supposed to do?
Re-inventing the wheel
" the HyperCat specification will unlock the full potential of the internet of things by creating a world wide web for machines"
Why not just buy the standard scamware off the shelf? It's not as if there aren't already some superb products available where machines are connected together even though the meatware doesn't know.
Something for the weekend, Sir?
Will there be some pull-out stickers in a series of images of LOHAN?
Re: 70s pop star?

Re: heard similar please before
"This wasn't a trick, the recorders were allowed to run and the fans came back and collected them after the gig."
They also gave public approval to anyone whose personal recording was better than thiers.
The world is flooded with Dead bootlegs, but some of them are superb.
"Maybe if she wears a mini skirt."
Multiple choice -- you choose the first word, the second one is 'off'.

"Remember the small hands of T. rex? What use were they for?"
Keeping a decent hand of cards close.

Usually it's a UK IT project that goes titsup -- this one looks really cheap for once.
"To whom do these assholes direct this stuff?"
Shareholders -- is there anybody else they actually care about?
If Dragons tend to speak remarkably like Mr Connery(I've seen it on telly so it's true) they may have moved to somewhere with more advantageous tax regime.
Was ectoplasm involved?
Re: Plans for dragon attack
"All staff are required to complete at least 50 hours of mandatory Skyrim and are prepared to deal with incidents involving Dragons, Trolls and Giants. Your council - Working Hard for You!"
Yeah, yeah -- we know damned well that those supposed 'radar' domes are actually where the M.O.D. house our very own attack Unicorns.
There's No Pleasing Some People
They moan in droves about W8 not being like 'the old days' and then not beng like W7 -- and when MS fixes it for that real ol'-time leagacy feel the ungrateful gits complain!
Some older people may remember a little band called 'Devo'
"A soviet sputnik hit Africa
India, Venezuela, in Texas, Kansas
It's falling fast Peru too
It keeps coming, it keeps coming, it keeps coming"
It's a bleedin' fish, innit.
Re: Doesn't bode well...
unless they are total Minecraft nuts who are building processors and are about to pwn the internet - but only in daytime.
Re: I'm just amazed...
"Didn't they have a countdown a few years ago, ticking off the days until some 15 year old was old enough . . ." to shag.
Yes, Charlotte Church (might not have been the Scum but same lowlife pondslime scumsuckers)
Once upon a time pupils were encouraged to go for 'business studies' as that would make them all in to rich little entrepeneurs.
Those going into insolvency parctices did well out if it.
Looks like the same is happening now, one or three people make a mint out of apps and it's yee-ha! goldrush time.
And those who did best out of the goldrush were not usually the prospectors.
Re: The 29th century?
" Bruce Willis might not be available."
There's some hope then.
I'm going to have to pass on this one as well.
Where would I put the crap that lives on top of the speakers?
"Tridge is in Canberra, but that didn't stop him getting inside the Pixhawk via OpenVPN, while chatting to Linus on Skype."
