Re: It's Grim Up North
Not to mention Peniston
Re: Are Eccles Cakes subject to the appellation controlée laws?
Don't forget that most English of products, the Belgian bun. Which no one in Belgium has ever heard of. And generally react with surprise and alarm when shown something named after them.
CSRFF- Cross Site Request For Funds...
Meh, Who has been crap since the last Sylvester McCoy episode. (actually, since just after, the last episodes with Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred were awesome. Or possibly Ace.)
Billie piper was the one redeeming feature of the new Who. Ecclestone was passable. Since then it's been downhill all the way.
love the image file name of the first graph:
Re: "making it about one million years older than the solar system"
Here is the long term weather forecast for the next million years: Changeable, with a high probability of ice ages.
Like Anvers? Or Bruxelles? Or Gand?
The problem here would be that end users would build a dodgy router that continually say the drop didn't arrive and could it be sent again...

If you've ever seen the film 'the million pound note' that's how money works for the rich.
Fridge Edition - Ultra-high power consumption edition for monitoring when the milk is running low, and blinking a little red light to remind you to buy some. Luckily it comes with a fridge attached for cooling.

Any plans to get LOHAN somewhere in the vicinity of a pole?

Mary had a little lamb,
Now she's doing five years for bestiality.
Check This! 10 things you never knew Aussies could do from afar!
1) Unlock your car!
2) Fill this jar for you.
3) If the Aussie is Danni Minogue, she can do anything she does from as afar away as possible as far as i'm concerned.
4) Something involving the Arapaho.
" Ion drives (which we all know do actually work) produce nothing more convincing than a slight blue glow, which is barely enough to believe in at all."
All hail the blue glow!
"I sympathize. I am personally in that camp. A slightly modified (give me my fucking up button!) "
Personally, I want an un-fucking up button, for when someone fills their PC with crap by clicking ok without reading... Or deletes files with names like system.ini, or finds regedit.exe and thinks it can post edit their Reg posts...
I wonder how long it will take before someone steals a car by plugging in a usb stick...
there's nothing quite like a REG party,
full of folk who are cool and not farty
but this ones in oz
and that's just because
london's full of them types who are arty.
Consider my amazeballs well and truly toted.
Re: Point of Issue
Buggerate is the one that gets me. Admittedly, from Urpeons who learned English from American TV.
When I first encountered the use of the verb 'to bugger' instead of 'to bug', I corrected them... But having a senior colleague stick their head in a meeting and ask if they can buggerate someone for five minutes had me banging my head on the table, and said someone replying that the meeting was nearly done and could they bugger them when they were free almost had me on the floor.
Cancel in writing by registered letter... probably cheaper than the call too :)
I read this article, what happened next will AMAZE you!
I didn't share it on social media! Because while I found it interesting and amusing, I wouldn't presume that anyone else would, and if they would they would probably have already seen it
Doing rock-all, surely?
Because LOHAN will do anything etc etc.
If they are officially employed, can they really be described as vigilante?

Re: anti-sex morality groups
By dividing down the middle?
Solar panel -> 12v Battery -> 12v bus
Works fine for caravans and boats. Only need a backup charger in case of emergencies like 6 weeks of rain. Or an English summer.
Next time I wire our house there will be some kind of 12v and balanced serial bus cabling installed so lighting, sensors and switching need no batteries or wireless between themselves, and the MCP can live on a computer in the house with no access to the internet.
Could even have a 12v fridge freezer so the smart meter brigade can't turn it off :)
Re: The next step...
lol, I just had the highly amusing mental image of helplessly kicking legs as he was fed into a giant pencil sharpener...
Re: I felt a great disturbance in the Force,
Really? It sounded as if a hundred thousand people had said "wop'' to me.
Surely an autonomous car would be spying on it's own driving habits?
Tickets like 0.92g of gold dust at current price, if they're 100gsm copier paper and around 7cm * 15cm, that sounds about right...
I believe the FAA only regulates military air traffic when it is using civilian infrastructure, so not when they are killing brown people. Also, this notice relates to model aircraft- at 48ft wingspan, predator drones are probably not classified as models...
Re: "Gonzague Gay-Bouchery"
Not to mention, illegal in many jurisdictions.
"We will be making a submarine car. It can transition from being a submarine to a car that drives up on the beach," Musk said. Though he added, "Maybe we'll make two or three, but it wouldn't be more than that. It's not like we'd sell it, because I think the market for submarine cars is quite small."
But, as the market is people with private islands and drug dealers, the profit is probably quite large...
god awful lame acronym chosen through invoking creative apathy.
Mental note: Don't hack next to the giant scanning and molecular disassembly laser, I was always crap at light cycles.

Why bother with a door? Implies you might want to open it again...

"Handcream? It could be so much worse."
Heh, 20 years ago I did work experience in that office... Writing BI rules for an as/400, and after hours, a mouse-move-to-plotter-pen driver for OS2 :)
