Bang up to date, then. Next year I'm backing James Hargreaves for the Spinning Jenny

Pet? Cattel? Contraptions, more like.
Ours are mostly held together with string and gaffer tape. "Contraptions" is the word I'd use.
Re: Lies, damned lies and statistics
It didn't really need to end with a "Kzzzerrrt", it was pretty obvious by inference.
Yes it's definitely there, between the lines.
Re: Mel Gibson
Is that what they call the Scientology payments these days?
Re: How much you want to bet...
I now have an image of it going around and around on a spike like a mini version of the dubious meat on a kebab shop rotisserie.
Unwelcome as that mental image is, I admire the cruel streak. You may have one upvote and a tiny picture of a beer.
I'll miss FB when it's gone. I'm not a subscriber but I always keep up with lamebook.com
I'll have a go. It's not rocket science!
Oh, hang on ...
Re: It all depends on the water!
Yorkshire tea is also good in the Midlands. As a Lancastrian it pains me to admit this but I cannot tell a lie. Our water comes from Wales though, so I'm tempted to give the Welsh Brew a go.
Re: Chnaces are....
Did I just defend them?
You've just proved one can't be wrong all the time. Even PC World.
Re: Like Marvin
Assuming Facebook hasn't gone titsup by then, you could poke Mr 40mph to let him know how you feel about his delaying your journey.
Re: The UK Civil Service has a code governing honesty?
"Don't get caught" would be my guess.
Re: Why though?
Seems he's a skilled hacker but not that bright.
Why not turn it off by default, Mark? If it's such a stellar feature people will turn it on of their own accord.
Re: Including fifteen different building codes? Hostile contractors?
Not to mention Linus popping round to swear at you over your choice of roof.
Such hubris to end on PARIS. Splendid hubris!
[raises tiny picture of a pint]
The last thing I saw on there was that colonic treatment someone passed on for larks.
55% off a hose up the jacksy ... where do I sign up?
Oh Jimface, you are a tool.
Socialist haircuts seem to be heavily biased towards the bouffant spectrum, for socialist dudes at least.
I remember seeing a job ad for a sysadmin with the British Anarctic Survey in the late 90s. I bitterly regretted lacking the UNIX skills.
I'm all for that. Call the telly the telly and all that.
Please, please, please have a round in Yorkshire. Formula E By Gum.
+1 for sarky quotes. Later I'll buy a hot drink from a "coffee scientist".
Asteroid mining promises to be such a wonderful bubble
I wonder if I can insist that there's no asteroid miining in my pension.
Re: Camera watching me, watching them...
It's a problem I'd rather not have but if it comes to it I'll gaffer tape over the shutter. Creepy bastards can fuck off.
So I Twit to buy something then go down the shop and swipe my credit card? How is this better than ... just going down the shops with my credit card?
Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I'm not much of a shopper.
"11-YEAR-OLD code wizard"
Aka "exaggerate the skills of the idiot who was able to get around our idiot security".
Re: I thought 2012
You're right. 2012 was the the year of the lawyer. As was 2011, 2011, etc. and so on.
What is that thing in the top left? THAT'S NO MOON!
Nice to gloat at a Tory failure that isn't fucking over the poor and vulnerable.
Re: Can I format it in FAT16?
Based on the options in "Map network drive" you'd get to Z: and that'd be it.
26 partitions should be enough for anyone, etc. and so on.
That is cobblers. These HDD companies do R&D and that ain't cheap.
Storage is getting exponentially cheaper. and has been for decades. If you want to save money, buy the not-quite-the-latest model.
Zynga's stable of timewasters and their "post some shite as status" features were a huge factor in driving me off New Facebook. Even more than the morons, pictures of offspring, copy/pasted mumbo-jumbo, &c.
I guess what I'm saying is I'm grateful to them.
"You'll be back! Mark my words ... you'll be back!"
Not a chance, New MySpace. Not a chance.
Is it coincidence that this announcement was made a few weeks after Gerry Anderson's death?
Re: with any luck...
Instant (and welcome) earworm for me!
Re: If your names not down your not coming in..
I'd much rather we had green energy from nuclear powerplants
I'm cancelling my subscription!
The Antique Code Show award going to Lemmings is typical of the anti-Carmageddon BIAS that has ruined this once-fine website. Your writers are nothing but paid SHILLS gobbling away at the Amiga/Psygnosis danglies for all the filthy lucre you can get. And the readers are just SHEEP. SHEEP damnit!
Where's the Reg tombstone icon when I need it?
Just leave a box next to the pyramid. The cats will use that.
Re: Tablet computer has slot for SD card - Surface deficiency
@Eadon - Buying an SD card. Yeah that's an equivalent pain in the hole to extending your house. Nice analogy.
Re: Google Doing Good Things
Am alternative would be to pay their taxes - then the schools could decide whether to spend the money on Raspberry Pis or not.
"The Sun seems equally happy with the new test"
That tells you all you need to know. Though TBH the previous one was BS, too.
Your government is spying on you
Whichever party they represent, do not trust these bastards!
Re: This is a first
Don't see the point of mentioning Apple
I'm tempted to play along. Coming soon "Kickstarter Mine Thee Asteroidehs" from the Code Monkey Dept of Wacky Scams.
Re: There has to be a joke in their somewhere...
More of a golden trickle. 1.66 elephants per day isn't even a paltry 0.00002 elephants per second - the correct measure, as any fule kno.
He'll destroy MS
Ballmer will do what Apple, Google, linux, whoever else you care to mention. And best of all, we can all point and laugh while he does it.
Re: You have got to be kidding
Big sovereign rings are for Chavs, Google rings would really single you out as a nerd and a plonker, flash it in a bar 'hi babe I'm connected' will probably single you out as the guy to avoid. You will never have sex and you will be alone for the rest of your life.
Nerds will suss out that this is cobblers. It's your company BMW, bluetooth headset rep plonkers that'll lap this up.
Is "group of people get offended" still news?
If only there were any money in getting offended Britain would be fucking minted.
Re: I read that as "Public louse..."
Give it a few minutes and I'm sure some (minor or otherwise) politico will oblige.
