In a past life as a cold caller (put your negs away, it was for charidee) I always tried to use silent letters when cofirming post codes: "so that's 2 g-for-gome x-for-xylophone" and whatnot.
I know, little things, little minds...
"Hope to make the RIM job trivially easy for devs"
Ah Friday, how I've missed you. Nice one Bill!
Thanks for the warning
In other news, I read FB will now ask you to confirm your being tagged in photos. Which is nice.
Re: Anyone want mine?
I've had your ration. And that of any other teetotal commentards knocking around. Cheers!
Re: picking up my slack
Similarly I'll trade my cider ration for more pints of lovely ale.
Having just renewed my passport, this is way overdue. The form's badly written and the process is slow.
Get whoever did the car tax renewal to do it. They did a great job.
And they're listening via your fillings while you make stool.
Normally an Alan Partridge-style breakdown like this should inspire some sympathy but that's just tough titty Ramsey you obnoxious wankstain..
Re: Well thats me not watching F1 anymore
I'm sure Bernie will find solace in counting all that lovely money from Murdoch.
No surprise there
Most of the (non-Murdoch) UK papers were surprisingly quiet in the early days of the scandal. While The Graun and Indy were making a song and dance about it the reaction of the others struck me as a collective nervous shuffling of the feet.
Well done you fucking idiot
So Murdoch's on the ropes and with your silly attention-grabbing stunt you've given The Sun/The Times/Sky News another headline. Still you're in the papers and that's all that matters you complete waste of space.
Plod can fuck off
They'll have my fingerprints if they arrest me (I don't expect this to happen) and not before.
I noticed I was doing this years ago. There's a lot of dev stuff I just don't remember but as long as I can remember to find the Javadoc or whatever, that's fine. As long as I remember what I'm supposed to be doing this week I can cope with the rest.
"Common name" and "real name"
I would imagine that common name is the name you go by and real name is that on your passport. They're often different due to divorcees keeping their married names, shortening "Robert" to "Bob" and all manner of other reasons. The systems I work with have sets of columns for each.
What an arse
To me being an arse about a spoof religion is exactly as bad as being an arse about one that claims to be genuine.
How about: we're atheists, let's not be arses at all?
To be fair
I'd say trick-cyclist, colloquially, applies equally to both professions. We can leave it to the trick-cyclists themselves to argue the toss (or give a toss) about which is which and whatnot
You're right, but...
But XP runs on my antique T43 Thinkpad - game, set and match for XP for me.
Compare them but don't equate them.
Prohibition isn't working
It's as effective as alcohol prohibition in the USA was. This policy is simply not working. We have to legalise, regulate and tax these drugs. It might be a tough pill to swallow (no pun intended) but it will reduce crime both here and in the producing countries (cos dead people with brown skins matter as well).
As for me, I'm really not interested in taking drugs these days. I just want the stupidity to end.
Taking action meaning "having a quiet word" in most cases.
