It's spelled "eke", but I like "eek" better.

"Manning is a dumb shite..."
That's very true.
Unfortunately us.mil seem intent on making an example of this dumb shite. He's already on suicide watch (as reported by El Reg). This seems little more than an attempt to break his spirit than to prevent him topping himself.
I really hope they don't execute this poor bastard but I fear they will.
Surely it should go a little like this:
J Ass: "I've not been charged with anything"
Court: "Oh righto, on your way then"
Prob best to wait
If the US military does end up murdering Bradley Manning this could be a very different movie.
There'll always be some content that Auntie's not licenced to show outside the UK. But you will get a rake of top quality content for a tenner.
If I lived abroad, I'd cough up for it if my local connection was up to the job (and they did an Android version).
If Wikileaks had any oil you could guarantee they'd have imagined some weapons of mass destruction invaded them by now.
Re: That's a very interesting quote
It's an excellent quote. It's from 1984; that book that was once a warning and now is a template for Western government.
Luckily Application X is likely to be a complete load of monkey kronk so if it asks too much, you're not really missing out by not installing it.
I don't think I've got a single app on FB and that means is my wall's less clogged up with crap. Well that and a consistent "see and app, block an app" approach...
It's a nice buzzword to throw around.
It genuinely does make a difference at the dev team level. As for stopping IT project failure? Stop moving goalposts and stop civil servants jumping ship so often that there's no accountability.
They are already
"Is your car modified in any way (including wheels)?"
My 2p: I don't think I've ever used "it's political correctness gone mad" without taking the piss before. Gender's a genuine indicator of risk and this change will be another excuse for the insurance cartel to dick us all.
South African dam, African elephants.
If Indian dams ever break the 600 (African) elephant per second barrier, then we can start to argue.
Especially as this would rate the dam at a magnificent 3654 PPM.
Elephants per second
That has just shot to the top of my list of favourite measurements, wiping the floor with the Wales and even beating the Bulgarian Airbag.
Fuck em. We can't put the rights of the general public above those of company executives to line their pockets with people's tax pounds. We'll support this scam and concoct some wacky terrrorism bullshit to cover our backs. Oppose the perv scanners? You must support the terrorists! You must be a terrorist!
You don't have to join the tech pissing contest.
Maybe you're used to a Pavlovian dash for your debit card as soon as Apple releases new shiny but you don't have to. The old iPhone is a perfectly capable device (once you slap an oversized rubber band over it).
Now where do I opt out?
That was my first thought, too. And that's one bit of information I'll happily share with Google!
"I'm not racist, but..."
In the sense that they're "not racist, but..."
A cautious welcome
I didn't know that fraud trials without jury were in the sights as well. I've always viewed jury trials as an easy target for the Tories as they can argue it's red tape in the way of getting jsutice done.
So it's a welcome from me, suspended until the fine print has been examined (by someone more clued up than I).
