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 :)

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.
Re: lock him in
Why bother with a door? Implies you might want to open it again...
Re: hanged/hung, there's really no difference, they've always been used interchangably.
But I believe mobs 'lynch' :)
Re: Sharing Absurdities
"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 :)
Re: Who ate all the pies?
Knifewrench! Practical and safe!
Pretty sure they retracted that as it was bollocks.
Mecano came in sets called A, B, C etc...

Re: Did I miss something?
Who is Oscar Selfie, indeed, who are Oscar Selfies, if there are enough to refer to one of them as THAT Oscar Selfie?
Nope. Mainland Europe. Lunch is important here.
I'm glad the office has emptied out for lunch, as I've just made some very odd noises trying not to laugh at these comments. +1s for all!
"...mobile security firm Lookout showed how it might be possible to install malware or snooping on data feeds by tricking a user into simply looking at malicious QR codes."
Cool, snowcrash here we come...
Re: IT angle?
I think it was more of a tIT angle.
Re: As much as I loved Star wars
Indeed. There's still five and a half Dune books to do before they need to invent some more star wars...
Re: On-going Research
a cube of floating ice displaces the same volume of water as the water that made up the ice. so as it melts, the level shouldn't change. If it dropped, it was probably due to it (and the researcher) ending up drunk.
Try the same experiment, only support the ice on matchsticks above the glass... the glass soon overflows. (assuming of course, that nothing ends up drunk.)
Out-gassing of dissolved co2 in the tonic would also cause a small decreasing in volume...
Re: "toilet attendant"
Why toilet attendant? The correct term is Bog Troll
Bog Troll (n): A man or woman who sits by the door of a public (or patrons only) toilet facility, offering (for a fee) a range of bad aftershave, soap, or soft bog roll to convenience users too drunk to slip past.
Re: Cloth nappies FTW
err, do your guests know you are making them wipe their mouths and hands on used nappies?

IT seems to be made of best stewing steak... It's meteorite.
Re: A paper based on "what if"?????
I'm still waiting for the Finglonger.
Re: How to load an airship with celebrities
My first thought on reading that was maybe they've just found the new Big Brother house?
Eviction takes on a whole new and far more interesting meaning...
I would have thought that headaches and loss of energy are natural side effects of being at Glastonbury... As is coming home with some over priced hippy tat and a band shirt you'd never wear in public.

Assuming no one retrieves them from the recycle bin.
If commuting is dull again, buy a newspaper, read a book, do a crossword...
(or get a Nintendo game and watch)
Re: Tin Foil Hats
The wifi there doesn't monitor your thoughts, it adds new ones, like "drink another overpriced cup of brown mud" and "mmm, you are enjoying this brown mud" or "a 5 euro muffin would be nice about now..."
The wifi signal strength is always suspiciously high... possibly to overpower the tinfoil hats.
to share something pre-prepared is to share it before it's ready...

Google is getting pretty good at this... :)
Not to mention, once it's there it's quite hard for the driver to get in and not notice something amiss, a *long* time before the car steers itself into a tree and the airbag fails to deploy...

Without The Register, my smartphone wouldn't be worth as much to me as it currently is...
