I like vista, but only because without it I would never have tried ubuntu
its the degree they seem to be fiddling too
'If you are alleged to have fiddled your expenses, you would expect a full investigation before you were fired'
actually if i was alleged to have fiddled thousands of pounds I am sure that I would be out of the door before I could say 'it was a simple mistake'
they all seem to go through it
forgetting who their most important stakeholder is when companies get beyonda certain size, in this case google seems to have forgotten that its the people who use its search engine to find things that they want instead of what google gets paid for.
Quite a few people have told me how they 'dont use google anymore as you can never find what you want'
I suspect the people at google are clever enough to see their way through instead of just listening to the beancounters
Well i wonder why
MP's are not particularly interested in providing funding to combat fraud? Its a mystery?
Seems to me that, to quote someone else, 'Guy Fawkes was the last man to enter parliament with honourable intentions'
This may be a daft idea, but why not keep it for the same length of time as in the rehabilitation of offenders act? Or is that too joined up for nu labour?
Oh and no no no to the retention of innocent peoples dna data
good old macca
"If you get on a bus you've got to pay. And I think it's fair you should pay your ticket."
although if you buy the bus its a little unfair to be expected to buy a bloody ticket for every journey you make
corrected for you
'The comparison with Google is amateurish," he said. "Whereas The Pirate Bay was set up to make piracy easier, Google, which has many lawyers and more money than us would kick our arses all over the american courts
no google day
All companies seem to go through a phase, when they get big enough, of forgeting who actually enables the revenue to be generated. Is it not about time we had a 'no google day' or month or year?
may help get the message across about who is the important stakeholder
its all fair?
And hey, the CEO has offered himself up to take a 20% pay cut to his base salary so thats all fair and good isn't it? Also his senior staff will take a 10% pay cut.
Err no, not when you see this.
“Mark Hurd (CEO) made $42.5m in fiscal 2008. HP gave him $25.4m in cash last year, including a $1.45m salary and $23.9m bonus money, according to compensation figures contained in the company’s proxy,” said one employee.
“He gets $42,514,524, of which ‘only’ $1.45m is his base salary. He offers to cut 20 per cent of his base pay. Well, that still leaves him with $41,354,524 plus his stock options. In fact, his pay cut of 20 per cent is really only one per cent.”
the real big question
How far off the ground do you need to be before they cannot nick you for speeding?
be careful out there
Force female workers to wear see-through tops and then charge a fiver a head for "blousespotting
and all those caught looking at them could be looked up under the new porn laws for this non consensual (sic) act

message in a bottle
It almost might be worth taking a trip with them just so I could take a leak in a bottle and hand it to one of the on board shop assistants for disposal.
hmmm they just better hope I dont need a dump!!
Of course the real 'undesirables' will simply come in on a yatch and completely miss being counted in or out.
yet another good idea without an ounce of common sense from, to quote someone almost as daft, the 'one eyed scottish idiot' and his cronies
'Journalists' from certain cynical web sites better only book one way tickets because they may have trouble getting back in!!
If the irony (or perhaps appropriateness?) of protesting against the growth of monitoring and retention of communications data via a business whose raison d'être is the monitoring and retention of communications data isn't too much for you to bear
Hmmm tough one - nope its not so now it has one more member
I'll get my coat, mines the one with the tinfoil hood
A well named MP?
here's what good old dougy e-mailed me earlier, he is firmly on the fence;
I have not seen the detail of what is proposed so cannot express a final view
As it happens I am committed to being in Yorks next week and will probably not be in London at the time of the vote
I agree that transparency is desirable. Last year Cameron suggested that Tory MPs published their full expenses claim for a relevant quarter, I saw merit in that and did so and if he repeats that suggestion I am likely to do so again
I should be surprised if the present motion does not provide for pretty full disclosure so it is necessary to look at the detail with some care.
I do have reservations about publishing the details of all post 2OO5 to date claims. The cost and burearocracy seems to be disproportionate to any benefit
And for people who have never had a proper yorkshire pudding

Aunt Bessy makes yorkshire puddings.
She even makes ready cooked ones that just need heated.
(mine's the one with the couple of quid in the pocket to go buy some frozen ones)
corrected for you
Where's the freaking IT angle then?
if I promise not to ask where is the IT angle (as you seem to be quite sensitive about it) can I have a T shirt?
So how does this work then?
'Use my information to show me relevant eBay ads on other sites'
is one of the options you can untick
I suspect I am being thick here but how do they know its me on other sites?
