I'd say they have a bad rep because a lot of people don't understand probability. So if they say there's an 80% chance of rain, then if it doesn't rain people say they're wrong.
Re: NHS 24 is fine
But this is 87 louder </spinal tap>
Re: Warren girder
Tried, tested and (IMO) rather pretty retro.

Re: Re: Re: Aren't ALL Darwin Awards posthumous?
@darkmage0707077 very true. Also true for the posthumous awards.
Re: Aren't ALL Darwin Awards posthumous?
No. You can receive one while alive by losing your ability to reproduce.
They say tiny chameleon, I say MASSIVE FINGER!
Re: environmentally friendly?
Agree on the recycling point but the "cut down more trees" argument is bogus. They do replant commercial forests aferwards.
They're doing it wrong
We need to get some Wombles in space suits.
Being strictly honest I never completed it "properly". I just did the poke to reduce the number of items to collect.

Who are these people?
I bet it's a million bots.
But this is Apple
People will overlook shoddy software if it comes in a pretty enough box.
I received a couple and smelled a rat. Not that difficult a rat to smell. As you say, Ticketweb asking me to update Acrobat Reader is odd. I am a bit miffed about the deulge of spam I can now expect.
Fessing up to the breach (and quickly) is to Ticketweb's credit, though. Keeping quiet about it would've been a lot more helpful to the spamming basts wot done it.
So a qualified thumbs up.
Fookin ell that was a quick liftoff!
I've had a couple of "off the shelf" bits from Shapeways and they did a very good job indeed.
And time for Americans to *get* passports.
Sitting on the fence
"Everyone is wrong" is all too often the right assessment
The MPs have to be involved. That's the point.
"if Britain is to haul its sorry ass into the next century"
Let's run before we can walk. How about dragging its sorry ass into the current century?
No way are they letting mobile phone users on my open air smoking platform. I want to enjoy a cancer stick in peace and quiet thankyouverymuch!
"but it'll only be available from Carphone Warehouse"
That's a shame. Roll on when my contract's up and I can ditch CW.
Uncovered wickets, Chris Tavaré, etc. and so on.
I was hoping for something like Lord Beginner's Cricket Lovely Cricket. Imagine my disappointment!
c) never want to travel on a plane. If they're touchy about 101ml of toothpaste, they'll really have a sense of humour failure about adamantium claws
"medical staff quickly discover just where he's hidden the shovel he intended to use to disinter Marilyn Monroe"
I'm torn between the keyboard and beer icons.
Have a Friday beer on me Sr Reg!
The question of how they taste has already cropped up. As they're built to survive at a depth of 7km I reckon they might be a bit chewy.
El Reg's readers might block FB's ads. The majority of users don't.
Not arguing they're worth this ludicrous valuation but their business model isn't complete arsewater.
Maybe that's why so many people voted for the shittrumpet, then.
It'll be like WWII. They'll spend years denying there's a problem then show up late.
Publishing an RSS feed or similar costs time and money, but not much.
People competent to use Dropbox also use IE? Does not compute.
"96% of Americans without passports"
It's more like 63% but your point is valid.
Me too. I really don't understand the last line about abolishing the TV licence. Quality programming costs regardless of the transmission medium.
So on average it's still pretty damned fast!
Aonther story featuring adolscent smutty giggles. Naturally I approve of this.
Folks are already getting prototype enclosures from shapeways, just waiting for the boards.
I really, really like the Lego idea.
An anti-static bag and some gaffer tape?
Speaking not only as a driver, but also someone who often crosses roads I agree 100%!
+1 for not making it silver.

Small Hadron Collider? http://sascha.mehlhase.info/physics.php?open=atlaslego
Post-Christmas I appear to be made of cheese.
Black hole fanboi? Guilty as charged, though I don't feel the need to attack, say, pulsars and quasars in internet fora.
It's a figure of speech, meaning small.
For example jockeys are larger than a pint but referred to as pint-sized.
If it allows me to shine a massive bat logo on the clouds I'm in! Otherwise...
Dear HPC nerds
On powering up, please, please someone say "Gordon's Aliiiive!"
Yoda Christmas tree lights! R2-D2 Christmas tree lights! It'd take me til next Christmas to decide which to go for.
