Don't get me wrong, I'm sorry for those who suffer for Tourette's but it's bloody funny.
That's made my (previously crappy) day
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.
Impressive Brown-loathery there, Titus.
The word "often" suggested to me that Labour were disingenuous, while the SNP et al weren't.
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)
It's more that we don't want to listen to some inconsiderate arsewit bellowing every tedious detail of their dull, dull, dull lives into a phone.
As if screaming kids and drunken Brits aren't enough; now we'll have to sit through high volume bores bellowing into their phones.
I ignored the link in the email and looked for the changes from their home page.
Let's be careful out there.
From the article: "It does add an entry to add/remove programs."
However, the first 2 reasons you give would be enough for me to decline this spyware.
1 monitor and 1 keyboard.
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.
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?
Doesn't the test of a real Scotsman involve the choice of undergarments when they wear skirts?
+3 internets for that. Great stuff!
You'd get a very specialised form of RSI from that thing pounding your arse night after night on tour.
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).
Lovely garden shed bodgery, Reg. $DEITY bless Vulture 1
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.
I've no idea what that is, but I want one!
You've focussed on the keyboard, touchpad and battery life far more than the often small differences in benchmark scores. IMO these are far more important for my user experience with a computer of any kind.
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.
This could be your last chance to slaughter the Welsh after midnight!
Although I expect the UK murder prohibition would supersede the Chester by-law if anyone were ever to try it.
Xtian metal is shite. There are exceptions like early Trouble and the fact that Tom Araya's a Catholic.
In a way, I'm glad you posted the pic - my mind was boggling about what a bum burger might have been. Mind you I thought Kim Kardashian was some senior Nokia wonk. Popular culture? I've heard of it.
No wonder there are so many shootings in the US. I'd much rather live somewhere with decent gun control so I can get pissed in comparative safety.
Who the hell are the China-Russians?
They're 2 separate nations you ignorant hick bastard!
Meanwhile their friends got incredibly bored reading the most boring status updates ever.
Depending on the price, me. I was a Spectrum lad in the 80s but the C64 has a keyboard I can see myself still using. I'd love one of these hooked up to the telly (CRT of course!), running Linux.
I don't much see the point of mobile 3d but enjoyed the digs at Sadville all the same.
...but no one does hypocrisy like soceity
That'd be enough to identify me and most of my neighbours.
While you wait, here's some spam to read
Had it been an Apple plane comically underperforming, Jobs would've blamed Adobe.
Presumably the BSD teams are still up.
We have one bin for paper; another for glass, tins and plastic. I'm pretty sure they all go into the same massive bin.
I'm not aware of any songs specifically about the final countdown to a mission to the ISS.
Surely it has to be the Final Countdown.
Either he works for Sony or needs to switch off his console and get out more.
That's truly vile.
Alcoholism is harmful, as it getting so wankered you can't get home or whatever.
In moderation it's fine and quite fun if you ask me.
"Are you sure you should be baking another pie, Mr Code Monkey, sir?"
/me smashes the damned kitchen with hammers
You can set them them to be accessible from localhost only.
Cost has been CF's biggest problem, when most competing platforms are free.
In its favour is it's very quick to develop and maintain web apps. Scaling is great and server management is a breeze.
We're mostly a Java shop now but we've still got about 20 CF servers in production. Our or our customers' sysadmins look after Windows updates but the CF side is managed (very well) by developers.
I've very fond memories of ColdFusion but I'd not want to look for a job without something else on my CV
You have to admit that Sun did become very bad at making money
... I agree with that.
I recommend Lamebook.
I don't work for them; I just like to spend 10 minutes a day laughing at the stupid.
If he released the two trilogies separately the huge disparity would finally convince him that the last 3 (or first, as it were) films are utter shite.
You've got to admire him. No way could I sit through an entire Jenifer Aniston movie, no matter how much money I could make off the knock-off DVDs.
