People are idiots
This is not an anti-Apple rant. If you queue on the street for a new Android phone, the last Harry Potter book or whatever: you're an idiot.
Presumably it's only compatible with ghostwritten celebutard autobiographies.
...and not even the right one
Commentard and proud
"what a complete and utter prat."
In a nutshell, Mr Coward.
"They use statistics like a drunk uses lampposts – more for support than illumination."
+1 beer for that simile!
Spelt and spelled are both correct.
You'll find it's spelt "sulphur".
It's another thing for IE to implement atrociously, another load of client-side code to fork.
I'll not contradict anyone saying JS sucks but it sucks a lot less than it did 10 years ago.
I've got an account but I really don't know what to do with it. I'm already in touch with all my contacts and just don't need another network. I guess it'll be handy for whenever Facebook really shit the bed over privacy (and I'm I'll enjoy the irony of fleeing to Google for privacy).
"no evidence whatsoever"
That's proof enough for a lot of the church's beliefs...
I don't have one and have worked in the industry for 15 years. I'm now studying an IT degree solely becuase I think it'll be necessary (or at least very helpful) to get a job abroad.
Most Infectious Earworm
The most infectious earworm is Spanish Flea by Herb Alpert. It also has the advantage of not getting on my tits, so is great as brainwash (as is the A-Team theme and Monkey Man by Toots and the Maytals) for shite like We Are the Champions (a rare rubbish Queen song, I'll grant you).
It's (just) over 1000x the storage on my first PC and I was far from an early adopter.
If this prompts a drop in price of the current Kindle I'll be right in there!
Someone who harbours a grudge against a Tory MP. I'd guess at ~60m suspects then.
“most of the cookies you highlight have benign names and values”.
So no "all" then.
I thought that, but considering its main competitor is Amazon and it's about to lose its tax breaks, maybe it's about right.
I used to use Play a lot until Amazon started doing free delivery.
...the more you play games the cleaner your unmentionables are? An interesting twist on the life of the hardcore gamer.
In my day
We used to get boundary commision maps in books, with nice tracing paper overlays to show the boundary changes. Bloody nice they were, too.
Can Luton use it, too. After all their airport is London Luton (I'm also expecting the rebranding of London Birmingham and London Bristol airports before long).
I believe the Welsh are already llobbying for .herebedragons
The list goes on
What's that in elephants?
The sooner the better.
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...
Actually there will be a lot of Labour-supporting civil servants left. The "neutral" civil service was killed off by Thatcher in the 80s.
"Hope to make the RIM job trivially easy for devs"
Ah Friday, how I've missed you. Nice one Bill!
Re: The 1337 leaving with the aliens?
Yup. Commentards get the "B" Ark
Best of British, John

Re: "extra padding"
Extra padding for your extra padding.
I liked "enhanced boobs". A pint to whoever left that in.
"what am I missing?"
A sense of humour?
Thanks for the warning
In other news, I read FB will now ask you to confirm your being tagged in photos. Which is nice.
London to NYC
The replacement bus service wouldn't be so cool.
I find your ideas intriguing and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

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.
What's a Hulture Secretary?
Well done them
Possibly the best bit of business it's possible to do. Cash in now and hang on to some in case by some mirable FB doesn't go the way of MySpace.
A suitably modified version of Genesis
Hopefully without Phil Collins this time.
Mine's the one with the Peter Gabriel discography in the pockets
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..
DO NOT WANT
There are people I want to actually talk to over Skype and there are other people whose kitten pictures I want to see. There is practically no overlap between these groups of people.
And there was me thinking you meant Group 4 taking over the prisons
I don't mind
As long as I can still block it.
Now where's that Luddite icon?
I study after work so telly's constantly threatening to distract me. The pub's much, much better but less of a temptation as it's a 10 minute walk to a decent one. BTW are we related? ;o)
Joe Public will do what Sky tells it to do.
Re: How much?
Jeez. That's 3 decentish nights down the pub, which I'd much rather do.
Telly's the enemy, Sky TV doubly so.
Is Scrum genuinely a marketable skill? I thought it was turning up for a 15 minute team meeting every morning.
