I like the both realities where that spelling mistake was a freudian slip or was intentional
"A great deal of work is still required by IT to ensure all affected systems are operational again, and this process will take time"
At the risk of queuing up to kick someone when they are down.
Shouldn't IT have been putting a great deal of work into having a backup?
I mean really !
Maybe their Information Security dept could help ? (http://icis.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/)

Nice to have a day of not being contacted by Nigerians pretending to be open-minded, insolvent girls.
Books were great fun but you have to bear in mind when then were written.
Lensmen were not allowed to drink but all smoked like chimneys :-)
I thought that "Raising Steam" was a rather odd book when it came out as it contained just about every character in the Discworld. Now it seems to make sense as it's like having a curtain call for everybody.
I also never met the man and in some ways I mourn more for Sam Vimes, Moist Lipwick and the Librarian.
Which perhaps is how Mr Pratchett might like it. Thank-you sir for some great times. Especially Night Watch.
Practicing for 1st April and don't call me Shirley
What might be would be cute for PC FPS are support for two mice.
One for moving&selecting and one for looking&shooting.
No extra hardware needed and doable as a patch to existing games.
Me think it is the previous position like the text and the arrow state. :-)
Au contraire ! Hollywood shows unusual cunning...
Release of Battleship was delayed until after the El Reg poll closed.
Once you get over the fact that Hollywood cannot reliably make good SF it ain't bad.
Avatar... Great fun
WotW... Once you get past over the smaltz it's not a bad adaption
And most shocking I like all the Matrix movies (sorry)
But Battlefield Earth (overly long like most opera) and The Postman (a bit sentimental, sorry Brin) are best done in your own head
What is really sad is the humungous skipload of great SF which would make storming movies.
I ain't going to list it here. You know who I mean or you wouldn't be reading this topic.
The Beeb adaption of HHGTTG stands unassailed BTW
Indeed, hydro-electrics, but most of the electricity is needed in the flat, dry bits of the country
...and had to get myself a beer because it was just like being down my local !
Can I say that liked to bit in Highlander 2 when SC flogs his earring to the huffy tailors.
Doesn't save the film of course.
Have not yet seen it but I suspect that Disney just ruined John Carter.
"Did they find the iPad?"
I suspect that the drugs bust distracted the police a little.

We played at lunchtime in ye olde british electronics co.
Some folk would actually get quit cross when the little buggers fell to their death.
Love the "Now play nicely kids" comment in the last sentence of the article
See if I can get this right :-)
The old duffers say.
1) It's bollocks
2) It's not bollocks but it's irreproducible
3) It's brilliant and I have always stated that it was
The very nature of peer review means that it's open to abuse by
folk who are emotional, envious and/or unimaginative but that does not invalidate the process.
There is a great story about the bloke who proposed Tectonic plate theory.
He was repeatedly vilified by his peers who then led a candle-lit procession
of contrition to his widow's house when the theory was proved correct.
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis WAS the 4th movie as far as I was was concerned.
It's up in the loft with Monkey Island, Doom, WingCo and Incredible Machines as the remnants of simpler days.
Sounds like it might be worth buying when the budget version comes out.
Gamer with sense of humour and lingerie? Lucy will you marry me ? 8o)
Where's ma pump-gun Ma ?
Love the Swiss Army knife next to the camera. Presumably for scale but more fun than a ruler.
But it's nice to think that it's attached there for any indigenous Martian to use to fix up a bust camera.
You fools. Have none of you watched Ghostbusters and learnt what
crossing particle beams can do?
Have none of you played Doom ?
We'll be knee deep in skull-spitting zombies before you can say

Ma ! Where's my pumpgun ?
