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)
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.
More in-flight twattery
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.
It does have and Add/Remove Programs entry
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.
You owe me
1 monitor and 1 keyboard.
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.
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?
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).
Garden shed bodgery
Lovely garden shed bodgery, Reg. $DEITY bless Vulture 1
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.
Texas Fried Frito Pie
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.
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.
Hurry Chester folk
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.
Drunk in charge of a gun
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!
I'm near a giant Coke bottle LOL
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.
Nice, but what is it for?
I don't much see the point of mobile 3d but enjoyed the digs at Sadville all the same.
Correction: it would be nice if society makes up its mind...
...but no one does hypocrisy like soceity
Postcode + occupation
That'd be enough to identify me and most of my neighbours.
This is going to require some serious patches to get up and running again.
While you wait, here's some spam to read
Had it been an Apple plane comically underperforming, Jobs would've blamed Adobe.
Windows poor uptimes
Presumably the BSD teams are still up.
Ours too I think
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.
My idea of hell
"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.
It's an excellent platform
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
Much as I don't want to agree with that...
... 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.
Apart from the sport, I agree
It's good at sport, rubbish at everything else. I've really no interest in what the "Great British Public" has to say about anything. And if their phone-ins are anything to go by the country's full of knuckle-scrapers from Dagenham who blame immigration for everything.
Telly is pretty much all shite. Radio 4 is fantastic. All IMO, of course.
It's the 80s all over again
My ZX Spectrum used to play hell with Radio 1 when it was on Medium Wave.
I'm not sure when, but...
I'd take a guess that *legally* an unmarried girl becomes a spinster as soon as she is old enough to be married.
When my (then) girlfriend and I arranged our wedding, the registry office legal papers referred to her as a spinster. She wasn't happy at all.
@Dr Anonymous Coward
I'm neither jealous nor ignorant. I'm just not in the least bit interested that you spent a few years extra at University, whatever it is you did.
