Re: Online buying is sometimes not much better...
You can browse, but you have to log in to start adding to a basket.
Since you need to designate a store to fulfill the order and the system needs to check that the store has stock of the items, ready for someone to pick and pack your items.
- Disclaimer: I visit local small businesses or Express stores for ad hoc purchases, and me and the little 'uns make a trip of it to drive to a superstore for big shops, because it works out cheaper.
What about heat reuse
Can't the heat be used power a small steam turbine generator instead of venting it all out?
With some exceptions
We get some power from tidal: powered by lunar gravity, and some geothermal: powered by Earth's hot core.
I send their crap back into the system
Whenever I get an anonymous letter with the stamp "Delivered By Royal Mail" I drop it in the nearest post box. Maybe if the whole nation were at it we'd waste enough of the sender's money that they stop that approach.
Similar tactics are used with estate agents who keep asking if I want to sell my house.
i was in a go-nowhere room for a while.
Used the time to do pet projects, self learning, and ultimately prepare and deploy a CV with new achievements to embellish it.
Lugging around a computer system in a case?
That's very 80's.
Nowt wrong with a gaming laptop / tablet for gaming on the go when a handheld / smartphone isn't enough
It grunted its last
Perfect for a commuter with a garage
6 hours charge time, or buy the fast charger packs to speed it up to 1.8 hours.
My CG125 costs about £5 a week on petrol, this should be about £0.20 a week on electricity.
with that kind of ping response
No chance of hosting a Crysis tournament.
first to mention
both the robo lifter in Aliens and Cyberdyne System in Terminator 2.
Dear AC 11:58
Nice try, but you still need to sit down and "listen" to a spelling "lesson".
You only get off the hook if you dictated your post using Siri.
maybe for strategy games
I doubt there's much creativity required to complete an on-the-rails FPS.
Something like Monkey Island thought, requires such out of the box thinking I just thought "wtf" on reading the strategy guide lol
if he really wants to fight crime
don't they have a volunteer police / community patrol scheme there?
might as well be really smart about it
and restrict the voucher to new laptops and desktops only
Big use of helium
Aren't we running out of the stuff?
gotta check em more often than your wall.
yes I was imagining a 22k gold tub with diamond set facets and a special version of the Top Gear V8 blender to power the whirlpool
Sounds about right
I get more spam from Pakistan than anywhere else. Even when I opt out, they opt me back in.
Would be great if it could double up as a game controller for the PS3.
End it on a high
The last series did have some great moments (my favourite was Moss giving evidence in court)
i.e. no hammerpants
I too overcomplified how I saw it -
and assumed he had no teeth and had blended his pizza into a superthick soup
There's only 3-4 FreeSat HD recorders on the market, and Humax haven't released a new once since 2009
invest 10 minutes sticking it all in a spreadsheet
it's easier to compare the TCO across 2 years comparing the different tariffs, contract lengths and companies.
I'm getting o2 simplicity because I get a discount on o2 broadband which is nearly as good as Be.
It's not easy trying to survive cancer
respect to him for fighting on and staying on at work - I would have retired on the first medical leave.
Anyone seen the film "Pirates of Silicon Valley"? It was a funny look at the early days of Microsoft and Apple.
it'll probably crash when you try to download Battlefield 3 off it.
Like keeping a games PC up to date.
so if if is covered in adjustable temperature panels...
they would be called hexels?
Heat Emission Repressive/Productive Evasion System.
"work experience win!"
lol, too right. Good highlight to stick on her CV if she's headed for a scientific career.
So they'll just bump up the female driver's premiums to match the men, plus another 10% for good measure.
Still relies on tricking the user...
... into plugging in a new mouse that had been received without asking for one ...
... although it is a very sly trick and likely to fool many.
Maybe the Excel spreadsheet will be the data entry / reporting tool, with the real data being held on a proper system.
Did somebody say secure...
and database in the same sentence???!!!
So rather than waste the missile
let it get destroyed?
For a nation that brings us game shows where people get humiliated, and some seriously freaky "adult entertainment".
I was a Groupon skeptic, until I tried it out. It's true, most of the deals are for spas and restaurants, but sometimes stuff comes up that you never would have considered.
That was part of the appeal, it gets you into trying stuff out.
I'm off to book my skydiving lesson!
Big flappy overcoat needed in case the chute fails...
mind blowingly expensive meeting
In order to avoid being tied to market rate fluctuations and the withdrawal/introduction of currencies, the cost of this meeting must be measured in "number of biscuits consumed".
Thanks to Jeremy Clarkson for laying the foundations of such an important measurement unit.
So they ran into difficulties with the airport authorities
And now need the minor sum of (£750) "SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY POUNDS UK STERLING" to make bail..
Works on the HTC Hero.
Only stutters abit on the bigger levels.
I tried watching that - it was so dumbed down it gave me a headache and I ended up watching Familiy Guy instead.

Like a Macbook Pro perhaps, or a Dell Precision.
But people that stupid don't need such powerful hardware since they'll mostly use it for Facebook,
So the key storage circuits can be wired with a battery backup that's good for about a day, and the user needs to remember to disconnect the battery if the device is sold or moved.
too much overheads?
Why does VOIP over these devices need so much bandwidth when 64kbps should be enough to carry speech?
not just an Android problem
It's been going on for years with Windows phones - Samsung released updates for the i900 but they were locked to certain carriers, and you could only get updated once your provider added their own colours to it.
i wanna make up a silly name too
Hmmm - how about CrackPad?
And if you buy an optional coloured case for it - a redPad...
It's my phone
Sounds like a marketing tagline.
Anyway, I got a phone with another OS because you can't just plug the iphone into any other PC and use it as a USB storage device, so it's a pain copying your photos off it. My old phone had a whole bunch of photos I couldn't sync to my PC because I'd rebuilt the PC at some point. And the Windows Camera Wizard method doesn't work. And I have gave up at that point
I want to know...
Will it blend?
Time for a slew of new emoticons:
A Playmobil one, and a LiLo one?
