Global chocolate crisis looms

Chocolate demand increasing...

Is this similar to Homer Simpson's get-rich-quick scheme, based on the fact that pumpkin prices increased all through September and October?

Has anyone taken into account the drop in chocolate demand in certain countries after Sunday 8th April?

Aliteration..

<pedant> Actually that would be 'assonance' - the repetition of vowel sounds. </pedant>

Now I have wasted 10 minutes of my life trying to explain why poorly translated french captions are funny.

And how they relate to IT, and what this 'Register' you speak of has to do with my job..

Funny though. Good work chaps!

Malware vs Greyware

I suggest that the issue here is perhaps that the anti-virus software was not set to detect Spyware/Greyware, but only known Malware (i.e. containing a pattern matched to a known virus signature).

I have seen a number of organisations where the 'Greyware' option was switched off. Common arguments include 'user privacy', 'too many false alerts', 'poor performance'.

Common results when switching it on include detection of lots of interesting software installed on IT department PCs...

Re: Stupid comments

Miss? How did I do with my comment miss? Can I have an A+ miss?

Grade me now!

P.S. I get the DART to work, so traffic is not a problem. And it's Friday afternoon, and although I have red hair and blue eyes I'm not drunk yet... Does this mean I have to hand my passport back?

4GB fourth-gen iPod Nano confirmed

pc
Jobs Horns

I nearly bought one last week..

I ordered a 16GB model via the Apple Store, and when I checked my order status it had been replaced by a 4GB model instead.

Subsequently sorted without any action on my part, but the cancelled model is still listed on my Order Status page.

Product / part number (for those who care) is PB651ZO/A and the price was €140.
