In the meantime, we'll always have the monkey boy dance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RINizGmhrYo
So long Ballmer. You were tremendous fun. [raises imaginary beer]
Just open the cages
Let these fools take their own chances. It's a dog* eat dog** world.

Re: Mary had a little lamb, and it was always gruntin'...
I shall add poetry to the very long of things not to attempt on a Monday.
Roses are red
Voilets are blue
I'm often blunt
Gove is <redacted>
By Grudd that looks a good deal
Yes. The unlock pattern for my phone becomes very obvious if I've eaten crisps.
Re: We need more documentaries like this
No need for anonymous cowering, there. At least 90% of the people in this industry have worked with (or are) folks like that.
Auntie: happy birthday Dr Who! We've got you this
Dr Who: [unwraps] oh, overkill. You shouldn't have. No, really you shouldn't have.
"He is constantly in our faces about giving money to charity"
Churlish much? I've not heard Bob say much about charity since Live8. Hardly "constantly in our faces".
If someone offers you a trip to space, you take it.
Re: So how does this compare...
As the number of Chinese wot can't speak Chinese (~400m) is greater than the total number of USians (~300m), therefore it is greater than the number of USians wot can't English talk proper.
We (I) need an anti-joke chicken icon
Perhaps the boffins can now turn their attention to where bears make stool.
Flying LOHAN Aeroplane Protection System
Shit off Zuck
... is my considered response.
An utterly sensible solution that looks utterly bonkers. Goodonyers Scottish canal boffins.
Stupidity? Malice? Both?
I really can't work out whether this is stupidity malice, or both. I suspect the former.
Ah NT4.0. I ran it for years after its official end of life and it never went wrong. Never.
An Australian wants us to trust him to add things to a beer that won't ruin the taste? In the case of Aussie pish he's probably right.
It shows how tragic these UFO fantasists are. Whatever you think about its purpose, the SR-71 is a marvel of human engineering. That people can't appreciate what we're capable of without having to imagine little grey men is sad.
No such thing as bad publicity?
I mean, who knew AOL still existed?
Silly Norwegian government
This is a perfectly sensible decision ... if you ignore Streetview.
Being a juror is a serious business. You're asked to decide on something that could lead to someone doing a lot of time - or that an innocent person be punished and the guilty go free.
Don't talk about the case (on or offline), don't Google the defendants, etc. These rules might seem harsh but they're clear enough. Don't piss about.
Re: Fire up the pun-o-tron
I fear you'll attract a load of old bollocks here.
Re: It's not all that bad
Fresher than their usual burgers, then.
You seem to be suggesting that parents take responsibility for their children. That's not the 21st century way!
If my Twitter's anything to go by, they're really overestimating people's interest in the lizard-baby.
A very quick look at my browsing history will tell you all you need to know about my desire to watch mucky films online.
The later incident was a genuine charger.
... or at least that's what the bloke down the market said.
Re: An anternative?
Ford and MS? Getting up half an hour early after Patch Tuesday so my Fiesta can install 16 updates?
Oh gawds no!
How many for rumpo with a choirboy?
Asking for a friend.
This - though for me Unreal came at the time I was falling out of love with computer games. Quake II was the last game I ever finished.
Re: Does this excuse still work?
"It was not my fault its the (insert anything WEALTHY here)"
The old rule
"Wait for at least one Service Pack" still applies, I reckon.
I'm tempted to rejoin FB to have a nosey
If this is the start of some Facebook-style privacy snafu I will ragequit.
South Sea bubble, Tulip bubble, boo.com, Facebook IPO. No matter how much we try and idiot-proof things they keep making better idiots.
I don't do Facebook but if I did, I'd have Shyte Brook as my hometown.
I thought the code for astro-rumpy was "the 200 mile high club".
$800m for a load of pictures of winkles? The world's gone mad!
"Amazon flows into Brazil"
Not really - it's more than Amazon drains Brazil into the ocean.
I'm not entirely sure where that metaphor is going but it's certainly not where Microsoft thinks it's going.
Re: Yorkshire Gold!
Coming from the wetter side of the Pennines it pains me to agree with you but, yes, Yorkshire tea is the best.
@ I ain't Spartacus
Secondly if the Gorringe subduction zone becomes as famous as the San Andreas fault, then poets and songwriters will now have something to rhyme with Orange.
Not only does it rhyme with "Orange" but Gorringe Bank has massive rhyming slang potential as well.
"Why don't you stick this fookin job up your moron fookin ass you dormant bastard?" > 3 words
Sounds like you need to take a lead from this organ's own BOFH. Just remember to hang on to the roll of carpet after you take it up ...
Re: It'd be nice
I'm waiting for someone to blame Microsoft.
I'm sure there are many folks who twit/status update the amount of bog paper they use.
Re: If Eadon...
That would make sense. Have you ever seen Windows ME climbing stairs?
No, nor me.
Paterson Joseph - with a scarf, bag of jelly babies and a smart lass in tow.
Most of the Word documents I produce are complete shite anyway. Lack of backward compatibilty is sparing future generations some tremendous dullardery.
I'm not convinced
It sounds like we're in the low-rent shithole between 2 genuinely nice areas.
