It makes no sense
How do you persuade a cat to enter a prison?
Presumably only by standing in front of the gate and giving it a boot at the right moment. If you're going to do that you might as well just chuck it over the wall.
(The contraband, not the cat.)
Re: It doesn't matter.
I have CM10 on my SGS1 and am unaware of such a feature :/
I vaguely remember those as a kid but noone ever enters to tell the teenagers to shut up now. I doubt any staff would ever notice filming happening.
No new trial?
But this isn't the same thing as 'no appeal' is it?
I'd forgotten about that. Thanks for the memory :)
I visited altavista.com a few times at work and was left desperately scrambling for ALT-F4.
Re: Get some imagination...
Wasn't me downvoting you but I got 10 downvotes already for dissing Arial and TNR so they must have some fans on here :)
Test: ARIAL SUCKS !!!!!!!!
Re: If it gets rid of Arial and Times New Roman...
Arial is boring and was overused in the 90s. Get some imagination and pick something different :)
Personally I'd go for Ubuntu web-font for websites and Verdana for Windows but there's plenty of decent choices that don't make you look like a bank 20 years ago.
Re: I'm sold
There are more than 3 fonts on Windows!
Calibri/Cambria is OK. Much better than the pre-2007 Word defaults of Arial and TNR.
Verdana is more readable though.
Comic Sans is not an option except for dicks.
If it gets rid of Arial and Times New Roman then this is the best patch ever!
Re: Time out a second...
Gives mass != has mass
It's Mrs Higgs Boson.
Look out at double the mass for the Higgs Boson's mother in law.
Windows POS only?
Not 4690 then?
Re: Governments aren't serious about combatting tax avoidance
A little bit unfair on low-margin, high-volume businesses that idea and unfair on retailers in general.
Re: Preprocessor hate?
Hey, I've WRITTEN preprocessors but even I can see the danger in having huge amounts of code spewed out at compile time :)
Looks a bit glarey :/
It's the same as my 24" monitor too but you can have higher dpi than that. See fruity retina displays for example.
Heading in the right direction but why not 1920x1200? That would be worth a grand of my money.
Couldn't they call one of them Lave?
To be honest
I'd expect a majority of MPs to be against this already not just Cleggy.
Re: Has Clegg......
He's plotting paedo-bombs!!!!!!!!!!!
Re: Just hurry up with the Linux port
Yeh I know it's in Beta but it needs to get finished :)
Just hurry up with the Linux port
Not too fussed about playing on my telly tbh but they need to get working on the Linux port now.
Rickrolling was one of my later thoughts to be honest.
My first was LemonParty, then BlueWaffle. Then a classic Goatse or even 2G1C.
Thinking of Rickrolling was a kind of relief after that.
Re: Internet usage up, tadpoles down.
Should I have used this icon just to be clear?
Internet usage up, tadpoles down.
Same as in every western country. French tummy-sticks are emptied nightly due to the availability of Le Pron Internetique. Hence Les Boules are somewhat reduced in potency compared to the 80s days of relying on les magazines or le bush de pron.
Probably their only consistently good album tbh.
Switch these up to 11 and you can expect Years Of Decay to your ears!
An AI that could handle my Angry Bird on special week would be a Godsend and I would pay a fortune for it!
Wait, what? A phone game? This is somewhat less useful.
...our new underground, microbial overlords !!
Just create work for HR departments so they have to expand and become managers of the new guys. A few years later the new guys want to do the same so they have to invent more long-winded processes to justify the expansion.
HR is a parasite :)
Let the flaming commence!
I prefer crisps to popcorn by the way.
Cue the +1ers farming votes.
Press like if you like bacon.
Have they not played Millenium 2.2?
This will not end well.
"I think the next step is to see if models can confirm our findings."
Lucy, 26, from Bristol, says no.
Now that was a TRULY great side-scrolling beat em up ! :)
Elbow > *
For some reason all the baddies were totally happy to be elbowed.
As such this was not really a great game.
Personally I'm hoping that they carry on with the narrative about trade disputes. Possibly something about marginal tax rates in non-core worlds and maybe a three hour EU style negotiation session. I think Lucas was onto a real winner with these themes and I hope the new writers don't abandon this vision.
Russ Abbott is not happy
Let's get rid of our most experienced staff!
Cunning. Real cunning.
Isn't it a brown dwarf then?
I like the idea but...
As someone who has handed out many a surprise link to that domain I'm thrilled with the idea in principle but it's the practicalities. Who would I use this domain to converse with? My mother? My business associates?
More importantly, would I trust someone who buys a rectal-related domain with my email?
Re: Yeah right...
OK. You really missed the point badly.
MS is ALLOWING boot from USB for ENTERPRISES.
MS is NOT ALLOWING it for CONSUMERS.
My argument is that CONSUMERS want this. Businesses may or may not, doesn't affect my argument.
Re: Yeah right...
Never mind that. Why wouldn't you allow consumers to boot from USB? It's been in Linux for years and is useful. Even my Linux-phobic friends keep a USB stick with Linux on hand for emergencies.
Can't say I noticed
Was it a local thing?
Re: RE: As a PHP and semi-Java developer, I say..
You can write bad code that allows for SQL injection in any language.
Ruby has gone some ways to making it hard to write code that allows it by default although lazy coders could still override it.
Not really a problem for Rails
Plenty of large sites run fine on Rails and would have taken an age to write in Java. The very few sites that end up as big as twitter will always need to performance tune the hell out of the bottlenecks with whatever tools they think best for that VERY SPECIFIC job.
What sort of group of people would set up a business specifically aiming to get nude pictures of teenagers?
I can reassure you that all photos will be deleted after 10 seconds.
