Is down, and seems to be the victim of some kind of nefariousness.
In the West of Scotland
It's long been known that square slice sausage on a roll liberally dosed with brown sauce are #1 hangover cure, especially when accompanied by a cup of tea.
Paris cos she knows good sausage.
Once the grass roots

The particular Street View ball is greyed out on My Google Earth.
Never thought I'd be able to use this outside the realms of Inorganic Chemistry...
‘Microsoft preps massive Nephelauxesis'
Paris knows when an expansion is real.
Bad idea, badly executed
Mind you in Russia a bad idea could get you badly executed!
It's a bit like
Rain on the Clyde coast, IE8 doesn't conform to web standards, utterly predictable.
Where's the British lamb that needs burning?
So much for
Innovation, not one aspect of this device is innovative, it is a rehash of current technology with obvious enhancements. This is why the patent system is completely FUBARed, too much crap is given patent status where the basic device is a fairly obvious extension of prior art.
Paris cos she knows when something is the real deal.
should dress themselves up as Adam Ant and start singing 'Stand and Deliver'. While I believe that artists deserve remuneration for their work, be they performers or writers, the PRS are little more than an uvverwisen agency, "Pay me money uvverwisen I'll smash yer face in".
"North Korea's Taepodong-2 missile is assessed as being capable of reaching the United States. However when it was test-fired in 2006 it blew up 40 seconds off the pad."
So they actually only have 40 seconds in which to launch the 747, get it in range, and take it out before the missile decides that life just isn't worth it and self destructs.
Paris cos... well just cos...
Is truly a joke, their tracking system is hilarious, invariably they report that your number is either not recognized by the system or that it has not been picked up yet. This continues until you have the package at which point the tracking can still report that the package is yet to be picked up.
Shipping costs in the US are really not helped by the retailer scalping the buyer on the handling charges. Small items like DDR2 sticks can cost you $10 shipping, laughable.
The just don't get it do they
Differentiation should be on the basis of added features not of decreased crippling. Looks as if MS marketing dept has potentially fubarred the Redmond monkey factory's big hope, as they news announcer on H2G2 once said 'Keep banging those sticks together boys!"
I've no doubt
that the sports viewers will be indulging in their own version of simulcast, with a radio commentary from an English speaking radio station being played while a muted TV is watched. Gaelic programming, and BBC Scotland's pissing about with schedules has been the bane of the viewing public's life in Scotland for decades. If it isn't about sport or politics (Scottish politics, mind you) then it can't be important. AS a qualifier on the sports statement the only sport recognized by the west coast dominated BBC Scotland is Fitba' or anything that England has been beaten in, so of the 30 minute Reporting Scotland 10-15 minutes is given over to sport, in reality 10-15 minutes is given over to football.
If they wait too long
The USofA will be a third world country in hock to their Asian bankers to the tune of several trillion dollars...oh erm wait a minute.
A lot of the past business SKU features are now an essential in any home network. Reliable and easy networking (would be a novelty!!), transparent and brain dead easy backup have all become commonplace for any home user who has built up a collection of music/photos/movies... Given the economic climate (wonder if we can blame that on carbon footprints?) MS needs to get the SKU count and the pricing just right to avoid another Vista screw-up. If they don't resist their multiple SKU, "milk the saps for all they have" approach to OS marketing then despite the improvements in Windows 7 it'll go down like a burning zeppelin.
bear in mind that the best thing to get sales going is to drop prices, like by at least half!! I wonder what proportion of a new PCs cost a fully licensed version of Se7en is going to be, not the knock down OEM price but for us individual home builders. Must be hard to keep a 60% profit margin on your office products and a circa 81% margin on windows in such difficult economic times.
Kangaroo Gut Bacteria
Apparently Kangaroos don't fart due to the inability of their gut fauna to generate CH4, consequently we need our gut fauna to be gene spliced with those of a Kangaroo.
Paris... cos queefing don't count!
And Madoff only nicked a couple of quid.
Cos..well just cos.
They should start charging the news media for using their site, in the last few days I've spotted pictures on the BBC news website which are ripped directly from the wiki site. May encourage the hacks to do a little bit more research than immediately type wikipedia.org .
Does this mean that Jimmy Wales' name is going to be removed from every sodding page that wiki drags up, just checked... nope now he's thanking us all.
Paris cos all she needs to rise funds is a camcorder and the latest beau de jour.
Just as well
China is paying lipservice to these western Copyright hogs, if they were taking it seriously they would be resorting to the age old punishment from Chinese courts... death for any crime!
Fundamental issue that schools and education departments fail to take into account is that these pieces of hardware have a lifetime, which is significantly reduced when placed into the hands of a snotty nosed 12 year old, consequently, such a cash injection needs to be made every 3 years or so to cover the reduced lifetime of the hardware. I know this is the case as my school participates in such a scheme and we are now in the fourth year with no further cash injection and a skip load of dead and dying machines. Also schools should steer well clear of specialist education suppliers who are a shower of rip-off bastards who will quite happily charge a whopping mark up based on the ignorance of their customer.
That's the best they offer
"Viacom's best known shows include The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Dora the Explorer."
US sad attempt at satire, the yanks just don't get political satire at all, and a cartoon scream machine, I personally can do without this crap.
Viacom can go suck the big one
As a paying TWC subscriber, I would happily see the Viacom channels disappear into the great blue yonder. Seems to be a strange situation where we have to pay for a channel that generates revenue by transmitting adverts 16-18 minutes every hour, let alone having to pay for the crap that isn't advertising something, erm hang on a minute that would leave about 10% of the programming that doesn't have associated plastic crud.
He deserves it
Purely on the basis of how many smiles and laughs his work generates. Sir Terry indeed!
Never Mind the CD
I got my wife and two Step daughters digital frames this year, when I went to preload their inbuilt flash memory Ubuntu tells me that there is an executable trying to autorun, I check it out and it turns out to be CN911.exe, present on all three. CN911.exe is a trojan with backdoor capabilities. Made in China, the frames are marketed under the Tao name in the US, I wonder how many zombies have been harvested this christmas.
Paris cos she knows all about back doors.
When will the ??AA
Realize that the only way forward is to tap the revenue stream, rather than sue its bollocks off. $10 a month for the rest of their life from every internet subscriber in the world sounds like a pretty sizable chunk of cash. Reliable, subject only to variations in population, and virtually cost free, oodles of cash coming in and little in the way of costs going out. These neanderthals are giving capitalism a bad name (ok not as bad as Madoff) and being incredible shortsighted to boot.
Paris cos she knows how to swallow a good stream.
Serves the bastards right
Best Buy are really the worst when it comes to customer support, after sales service, employee relations and just downright humanity. A company couldn't have a more misrepresentative name.
Is this the same bunch that gave us Gulf War II, that reality show subtitled "hunt the invisible nay non existent WMD", if so I would treat the content with the contempt it deserves.
Paris cos she knows intelligence when she sees it, she, like US intelligence, just doesn't see it in the bathroom mirror.
