I'm not sure attempting to maintain the status quo can be construed as rebellious. With a name like Waterloo they should have gone for the ABBA Glam Rock look, or alternatively to wind up the Quebecois with allusions to Napoleons... erm Waterloo I suppose.
Beer is always welcomed by demoing students, whatever the cause.
I have the 64GB version
cost $109 in a sale, replaced an aging 40GB system drive on an HTPC. It really is noticeable. The menus in Mediaportal are snappier, programs load faster, the OS itself boots a helluva lot quicker. I shifted all the temp files, caches etc to a secondary HD and to be honest any new builds I do will have an SSD for the OS.
If the judicious application of a 15lb lump hammer fixed the problem and also whether the said astroplumber displayed the required inchage of plumbers crack.
Paris cos she needs to go into space for her next 'leaked' video.
Wikicult have really screwed up this time, they can be as slippery as they like, the images were copyright not the original artwork. Consequently they are guilty of copyright theft. I hate analogies but this instance begs for one, next time you're in the National Portrait Gallery go pilfer some postcards from the giftshop and see how the dead author defense stands in court.
Independent Safeguarding Authority
It is predictable that any government department, commission or agency can quite happily go about its business which is the complete antithesis of its own title. Justice department hmmm, ISA hmmm, what next a Truth Commission to get to the bottom of MP expenses. You just know it makes sense... or not.
I would trust Paris with my children, although I might not trust my children with Paris!
If they halved the price
Then I might be interested, seems there are too many people out there with too much money to burn to make Amazon think seriously about competing. They have the "unique product, unique price" attitude that is prevalent amongst some manufacturers, I'm sure we can all put the names to them.
Used to be called the Launch Escape System in days of yore, i.e. during the Mercury and Apollo programs. MLAS is different in that the solid state rockets are integrated into the module rather than the old style bolt on missile with deflected thrust.
Paris cos she knows all about thrust, deflected or otherwise.
RSC gone loopy
They have completely lost the plot, what on earth has Psycho got to do with chemistry, tenuous link to water use and so what on earth has chemistry got to do with that. Shurely should be the Royal Hydrological Society (if it exists) or OfWat. Complete bollocks, hope the RSC members are happy with the use of their not insubstantial dues.
Paris cos she has her own shower scenes on film.
Think of the bloody Children
but then if you think of them too often I bet you eventually get arrested.
Seems they are taking cartoons too seriously in Japan. Besides I want Roo bars!
About effing time too
title says it all.
Title says it all

how to screw your rep for life, take a candid shot send it to your boyfriend, he immediately passes it on to the entire Los Angeles telephone directory, Before you know it your knorks are on display for all eternity on every other perv website.
If I had a teenaged kid I would be thinking six times about a mobile phone for them.
Paris, cos she aint a teenager and she still got fucked up by her phone.
@AC Technet Subscription
Just done this myself, with 5 PCs to take care of at home $293 inc tax is pretty reasonable.
with a not so hidden agenda. Mind you I was under the impression that to make a successful Disney movie the central character absolutely had to have lost at least one parent in some way or another. Grenade cos it should be shoved up the surveyors agenda.
Never mind the folding plug
the multi adapter is much more interesting, even if the plug is made permanently folded, if 4 of them are sold with the multi adapter it will be a winner. The folding plug I suspect will not make it to market, too many moving parts for conductors carrying 220V to make it cheap and safe.
Always have a hidden agenda, my feeling about netbooks is that certain manufacturers of both hardware and software have been trying, since the devices first appeared, to kill them off. This survey is one more drip. I can see a few punters buying a netbook and then getting pissed when they cant edit a 25MB image in photoshop, but then these are the very same punters that will try and run Crysis on a 10 year old Windows 98 machine, and get pissed when it wont work. Netbooks have their place, I just hope that the concerted upspeccing campaign doesn't kill the breed off.
Paris cos she knows her strengths and constantly flashes them.
Screw all this
Return to the seminar system, no lectures, 3 hour seminars with papers to be prepared and worked through or presented. See if they like that any better.
Paris cos she prefers the one on one.
What a prat
Interactive learning is expensive, not only in setup but also in terms of ongoing costs. Fail to invest the spondoolicks you end up with a crap system, crap system will result in a crap experience for the students, crap experience means crap results. I think a better way of saving money would be to do away with arseholes pretending to be important, student politics was always a about a bunch of twats trying to outtwat each other.
Users actually need an indexed search system, I bet it's nowhere near the number that have Googles search (tried it uninstalled it) or MS search/fastfind (never installed in the frist place), if you need to find something instantly, smarten up your act and use a logical storage regime. Desktop searches of whatever flavour cripple your machine, Fastfind was a bugger when it used to be installed by default back in the day, it could bring a system to its knees with no indication to an inexperienced user what the hell was going on. Moral of the story: make task manager your friend, get to know the running processes, if there is one that is hogging resources find out what it is and then decide whether to nuke it.
Paris cos she knows an arse from an elbow!
Interest and fear
There has to be an interest and there has to be no fear. My folks absolutely refused to have internet, principally due to a lack of interest, they reckoned they had enough to occupy their retired life without adding the risks or the fear, of ID theft, viruses, worms etc. We are talking about people who didn't have a colour TV until the mid 80s and only got satellite TV when my dad realised that there was such a thing as the History channel and that he could listen to Radio 4 without whistles and pops. I'm sure they are not the only ones who couldn't give a tinkers cuss about broadband, interwibble or egovernment. Some people don't want it, leave em alone, these are the same people who hit the mute button during TV adverts, they can't be commoditised.
Paris cos neither of my folks would have a friggin clue who the hell she is, and they're all the better for that!
Get away from the accepted terminology create a 'new' class of device charge the same/more for your OS.
Artists still getting screwed
Just not as deeply. Be interesting to hear a justification for the 60% trousering by Amazon. If they upped the percentages to the artist they could conceivably get a few of the bigger names. Hurt the RIAssA big time.
Paris cos she can do the math.
That McMaster is up for re-election quite soon.
Paris, just to piss off McMaster
