Re: Can we stop calling him an activist investor?
That twat Icahn
You cannot call him that. Twats are useful, try enjoying life without one ...
Re: Teeth to chickens.
"chicks had teeth" sounds just like my missus ...
I'll fess up to using EDLIN more than once. It taught you how to use a keyboard and think about what you were doing.
Do they have pigs on Mars?
They have Essex lions.
Must be the government's fault
and I'll bet it never would have been allowed under the previous government ...
Re: Cats have accounts
I wonder if anyone has created an FB account for their ant farm ... one FB account for each ant ...
Re: I'll watch but only if...
Re: Why 12x12?
But why not 20 x 20 table? Most of us have 10 fingers, thumbs and toes combined.
A few things to consider
1 - This is the first step. It's like learning to walk before you start running or, introducing an IT angle, it's like each generation of PCs is an advance over the previous. SpaceX is their start and one suspects they intend making it better and more efficient in the future.
2 - "fairly routine" is what killed 7 astronauts when Challenger disintegrated. Nothing in space is "fairly routine" and every successful launch is an achievement in its own right.
3 - Seeing as every successful launch is an achievement, this provides everyone involved and everyone watching an excuse to have a beer. We, (El Reg Commentards), have taken SpaceX as our excuse to have a beer at regular intervals and we are not going to let anyone take that away from us.
And when will they have the Falcon XXX?
I reckon they should call that one the Mighty Thruster.
I'm sure others can think of an even better nickname for it ...
Did they find Bruce Lee?
And was he scratched?
Re: No Reg units?
Power and work but anyone reading The Reg and posting comments cannot be working (unless employed by The Reg) so the power will be nothing.
... a net worth of $2m or an average income tax liability of at least $148,00 over the last five years.
Should that be $148,000?
A very long piece of string

Friday Dirty Extended
I wonder what he could do with paper tape drives?
Illegally ripped music.
How can you seriously expect LOHAN to be break free from the clutches of reason as well as gravity?
By using the VW hovercar.
"Germin and they want £75 to update"
That £75 is a one-off charge, all subsequent updates will be free for that device. I've got the same deal on my Garmin.
Re: 1000 jobs to go?
I would have expected those who drove the ship onto the rocks were already on the life rafts before it got this bad.
Title says it all
"As seen on the Internet!"
Me thinks you need to take out some sort of protection on that expression because me thinks someone is going pinch the idea ...
Re: Marketing idea.
Anyone getting laid while driving anything should have the prize of losing his/her licence...
Does this mean ...
... the next SPB is to send a paper probe to a nearby star system or should it be something a bit closer like one of them temporary moons we've been having hanging around lately?
Re: Could someone explain to me...
More space in the front of the car for various plastic mounts to make it even harder to get to the light bulbs to change them.
Re: Hey Lester!
or bite, as the case may be ...
Re: Hey Lester!
OK, I'll bit, what "Buenos Aires" nonsense?
Those of us with out Twitter or Facebook etc. accounts are buggered now because we are clearly not employable due to the fact that we are not using some online publication service ...
Re: The new Hitch-Hiker's Guide film
I had been told it was bad but it was on the box last night so I decided to watch it and make my own opinion. I was utterly devastated by the film.
Re: This is easy
I don't think VMS will run on these devices although I must admit, I would very happy if they did.
I may be wrong but ...
I believe the record for a balloon is around 32 to 33 miles where as these winds are at 60 miles.
IQ is not an indication of driving ability
I've known some people who had a low IQ but were very good drivers.
I wonder if ...
Captain Edward Smith said "There are no icebergs on my map so it must be the fault of the maps" ...
Loverly and thanks :-)
Was it intentional not to allow underline, superscript and subscript?
Those are about the only ones (particularly superscript) that I would probably use.
Re: Drew's Cookie Jar - psst. want a forum upgrade
Does this mean that the default "Post" text that says "No HTML" would be replaced for the power users?
How does their salary compare ...
I'm curious to know how much the $8 buys in China and how their (monthly) salaries compare to other people employed in factories in the same area.
It's all very well for us superior Westerners pass judgement on how much lower the salaries are elsewhere in the world but, for all we know, $8 in this area might buy you 80 loaves of bread, 8 diseases of your choice from the local hooker community and still leave money left over for that nice little retirement home ...
Or it might buy you 1 cigarette and a begging bowl.
"If there are complaints, the company has just 36 hours to remove the offending material"
So ... if I raise a complaint about the Indian Government web site, does that mean they have to shut down?
Who needs DDoS with that sort of power ...
Reason for down (or up) voting
I've seen quite a few posts that were down voted but I never managed to work out why. Would it be possible to allow for down (and up) voting to have an optional comment so that the person being down (or up) voted can get some idea why?
It might be better to have that optional comment visible only to the person being down (or up) voted.
Of course, the last point wouldn't help me work out why the post is down voted but it might help the down voted person change his/her ways ...
I was getting that around the same time but I was too cowardly to approve my own posts.
Wouldn't you be better off applying for .isaknobhead?
"die-hard fans of the sport will no doubt stump up the cash regardless"
I've been watching F1 since 1979 and you are completely and utterly wrong with regards to this statement. I will not be forking money over for a Sky package.
I will be sorting out the satellite disk that is on my house (mounted by previous owners) and using the German F1 coverage to watch the race. Seeing as I speak German at home, I have no need to find any English coverage although I'm not happy about having to watch RTL's adverts :-(
With LOHAN, one is never sure whether it is sucking or blowing ... or, in this case, pulling or pushing.
