God bless ol'Muphry
Tea Party Caucus
Was it just me that read it as ""Tea Party Circus"?
I thought not.
What they should've done
What they should've done is given them all Scalextric if they're that desperate for toys.
P45s for some, toys for the elite
That £90k saving sounds like complete shite to me.
Lovely stuff Reg. It's great to read of some proper boffinry. Boffinry with bits and bobs from the "bits of string" drawer.
I bet even 419 scammees are thinking this woman is thick.
If I didn't spend so long on the Reg forums I'd moan about them having nothing better to do.
"Think different" aka "manage your expectations".
Even with asking for a PIN at random, contactless payments will still make my future debit card more attractive to a potential mugger. Not a smart move (and not that the banks would give a shite either way).
"It's not a bottle for drinking, it's one for laying down and avoiding"
A victory for common sense and decent lager
Congratulations to Proper Bud*! In celebration I might try the 3 Budvar thing tonight.
* As opposed to scarily yellow American piss
The sort of name to get me checking it's not 1st April
A design of stunning awfulness
Nah, they scrapped Vista. Windows 7's not so bad.
There's always BitTorrent ;o)
My arse "none of the stolen devices contained classified data".
The church has spent years covering up all that child abuse. It's only fair that the faithful cover up, too.
Football in 3d
It's already widely available at your local ground. Give it a try, it's great!
BT: Bunch of Twunts
If it wasn't for iPlayer, software updates and whatnot I'd tell them to go screw themselves and go completely mobile.
Flashblock + Streetview
You can whitelist Google Maps' URL
(On Windows) go to Tools > Add-ons. Click Flashblock's options, select whitelist and add maps.google.co.uk (or whichever Google Maps you use) and hey presto, you have Streetview
That is all
Re: Over the top?
"On a personal level I have seen photographers taking illicit 'up skirt' shots,"
With DSLRs? Talk sense!
Plod's out of control
Somebody should remind this bunch of Gene Hunts that they work for us.
No downvote required?
But downvotes are traditional in iThing comments; no matter which side you're on or how sensible your comment.
I'm not making any claims to sensible comments, BTW, but some commentards have.
LIke Independence Day
With top quality SFX like that they're not just going to show it once!
...though I fear it's the exception, rather than the rule.
I'll happily eat my hat if this common sense continues and sorts out the USA's laughable patents system.
Not 1st April
Good. Lord. No.
I think we can all make an educated guess at that...
It's their loss
No, no, no. Ignore the poster, above. Stick to the fizzy piss and save the proper beer for me!
It is a fork
In fact Linus has said "nice fork" or words to that effect.
I'll do it for a few quid. I bet a few other fellow commentards would, too. Just check our posting histories for references.
PS WHY IS THIS STORY IN REGHARDWARE? IT'S GOT JACK TURD TO DO WITH HARDWARE YOU HALF-WITTED ASSCLOWN. GOD THIS SITE SUCKS. UTTER SHITE, REG!
So instead of wasting thousands of plod man hours, they tax it and make money? If only a few other authorities would follow suit.
(Personally I'm not that arsed about drugs, one way or another - I'm just opposed to stupidity.)
Re: Source Code Tour of UNIX??
It's a book: http://tinyurl.com/32jysja (Amazon)
Why do I have this need to go and check my privacy settings again?
Would that be the one that you can, y'know, use to make phonecalls?
Back to work
Are you new here?
(reading while compiling : http://xkcd.com/303/ )
You're in a hole. Stop digging.
"The sample size is terribly small of course"
Glad you pointed that out. Another half-assed survey masquerading as research.
"there is no other explanation that makes sense"
Like yours does? Crazy Bosnian!
A dig at Apple commenting on the comment guidelines. I salute you!
I guess the tariff still applies, but no one's paying :o)
A decent zoom is essential for a larger-fingered gentleman such as myself.
IMO Bellend was right to allow it. It's a part of South African footie culture and its World Cup should reflect that.
That said, anyone blowing one near me next season will be down A&E getting it removed from their jacksy.
If the helmet fits, Sepp...
I can't explain why they cost so much but one thing to consider is these tend to be a lot cheaper to run than a PC, especially with rising leccy costs (plus the VAT increase)
My sort of kit
Big lumps of metal, that's the look I'm after! Well done Seagate for bucking the trend!
The roundabout one's a bugger. I've had a few close shaves myself (both as potential crasher and crashee)..
I agree with Apple
Blimey. First Arjen Robben keeps his feet after being tackled now this. What is going on?
Welcome back SCO!
Fair enough we're not short of laughs in our industry but as a comedy franchise, SCO is going for some sort of record. Maybe we should start calling them UNIX Academy.
Not shooting the messenger here, Reg. You're right to report it but this kind of story is becoming depressingly familiar. I fear the planned public sector spending cuts will mean that data-handling training is only going to get worse.
Paper ain't broke - don't fix it
For £250 you could buy 40-50 paperbacks and just read, y'know, them.

- Elon Musk's LEAKY THRUSTER gas stalls Space Station supply run
- Windows 8.1, which you probably haven't upgraded to yet, ALREADY OBSOLETE
