All I can say is...
About bleedin time.
How arrogant do you have to be to think you can behave like this* and keep a very public job?
* well, get caught behaving like this.
Great time to be partnering a cricket spot-betting concern. Well done Voda!
Lucky basts. Try getting a contract for less than 24 months in the UK. It'll be PAYG for me when this on expires
Nice to see some technology advances that don't have me reaching for a tinfoil hat. Congratulations to the metallo-osseo-bofiins.
Advisory Committee on Conscientious Objectors
I'm going to end up thinking that these cuts are going too far, but...
Why do we have an Advisory Committee on Conscientious Objectors in a country with no conscription? Or did I just fall for some premature April Fools gag?
Muphry strikes again
It's the handsets
They're late to market but the Windows name will encourage some, deter very few (informed groups like us Reg commentards excepted) and be a matter of complete indifference to the majority.
If there's a pretty enough handset, Windows Phone will be a success.
Presumably the central locking works if you do it in the old-fashioned way (key in the lock, rather than the plipper).
Presumably it's also a four legged biped.
"not a laughing matter"
Don't get me wrong, I'm sorry for those who suffer for Tourette's but it's bloody funny.
chrome (small c)
The word chrome refers to the browser UI (i.e. everything that's not the page you're browsing).
Just in case you're still struggling, the "i.e." I used does not refer to Internet Explorer.
The word "often" suggested to me that Labour were disingenuous, while the SNP et al weren't.
That wouldn't be popular
Dropping KDE would be a terrible idea. Just look at Slackware dropping GNOME. It's years since Patrick Volkerding did that and the moaning resumes with every new point release.
Were Shuttleworth to drop KDE he'd be giving plenty of ammunition to Ubuntu's detractors and inviting crap reviews. He's too much of a pragmatist to do that.
(I don't use Ubuntu BTW)
I ignored the link in the email and looked for the changes from their home page.
Let's be careful out there.
Won't somebody think of the children?
So donors bat one off at home and bring it in themselves?
Public transport filled with men carrying jars of their own jizz. Won't somebody think of the children?
Cow burps aren't as bad as thought
The figures for meat production and greenhouse gasses are being challenged, resulting in this interesting (and ballsy) climbdown from no less than George Monbiot this week.
The last one would've been tolerable had Dredd had kept his helmet on. And had Dredd been played by anyone except Stallone (seriously: anyone - Pee Wee Herman, Thora Hird, even a trained seal would've delivered his lines better, anyone).
So much for the Nano
My 2nd gen Nano is getting a little crashy and I was pondering a replacement. From my POV Apple's ruined it. So my choices are previous gen Nano or non-Apple. The latter's favourite.
And dashed good fun
Experiments like sodium in water (especially followed by potassium - which had me looking down the periodic table imagining even better pyrotechnics) and the thermite experiment are a great way for a science teacher to get the kids excited about the subject.
I pity these Scottish schoolids and their sanitised, dull science lessons.
Xtian metal is shite. There are exceptions like early Trouble and the fact that Tom Araya's a Catholic.
Who the hell are the China-Russians?
They're 2 separate nations you ignorant hick bastard!
I'm near a giant Coke bottle LOL
Meanwhile their friends got incredibly bored reading the most boring status updates ever.
Correction: it would be nice if society makes up its mind...
