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.
Re: Is it good or bad?
I've never had crabs but I've heard tales. The conclusion I reached was that not having lice is better than having them.
Re: An NRA spokespersons said...
"Guns don’t kill people. Video games ... kill people."
I wish this were true. I tried wiping out my school witha cassette copy of Manic Miner. I got tired before killing even the weediest first year weakling and was easily overpowered by (unarmed) teachers.
The smartphone with a decent battery life on a is the star of the show for me. That it's waterproof is impressive but secondary.
Re: Researchers, what would you do without them?
the rare desert penguin
Humboldt penguins are quite common in the Atacama desert
Cheap pet for a supervillain or the ULTIMATE AQUATIC PLATFORM FOR A FRICKIN LASER?
Re: "So they hooked it and dragged it to the surface where it died. "
From the article: "The squid was then hooked and taken to the surface for measurement."
Re: Which qualifications are worthwhile?
Despite a long, long time spent working in the industry, I'm studying an IT degree with the OU at the moment and can recommend it.
One thing to bear in mind is cost. I'm lucky that I started just before the univeristy fees went up, so can finish my degree at the old rates. In common with traditional universities, the OU has more-or-less tripled its fees - meaning a full degree will now cost you £15k. Help is available, as are student loans so it's worth speaking to them.
The degree will take several years - though the fact that you're currently studying towards one could be a big boost to your jobhunting.
True up to a point. That Dysons are made abroad does not stop Silicon Roundabout being bullshit.
Re: Is it wrong...
There are pictures if you follow the link to the (magnificent) NT News site.
Re: Geeks have macs too
PCs had only just launched. Linux was years away.
These may have beeen factors in the virus author's choosing a Mac.
Re: Open wounds!?
Another reason not to do cocaine. This stuff's not exactly fair trade.
Re: "The evidence was stunning,"
I agree with the boffins. Cheese news is the best news.
Re: I almost died in Australia
"I almost die in Australia every day. From boredom, usually."
Does your iPhone keep sending you to funky new towns that don't exist?
Twitted is the correct verb if you ask me. And, yes, I am a Twitter user.
Not just that it keeps coming back but the Tories actually attacked the near-identical scheme that New Labour wanted to introduce. I don't trust these bastards one bit, nor the previous bastards, nor the next bastards.
Re: Next step: sue God?
If they were to find somewhere to serve the lawsuit I'd be impressed.
Re: Bad dinoboffins!
Good point. That also explains the lack of cars-with-no-floors-in-so-Fred-or-Barney-can-scoot-them-along-with-their-feet in the picture.
Re: Bad dinoboffins!
The artist that did the impression is making a huge claim for non-purpleness.
It's not purple, has no collar. It's nothing like Dino.
Re: Rather cynical
I can't speak for the OP but I'd rather pay my money with confindence of receiving the phone shortly afterwards. Until then the money can stay in my account.
If there were a way to do this so Murdoch lost money, I'd do it.
Re: So are they going to Open Source the code?
It's a Usenet scraper. If you've 15 mins spare you could knock one up yourself.
Who else thought it was a different sort of anti-piracy that Hurricane Sandy had wrecked?
Also paving front/back gardens. Britain's not as absorbent as it once was.
There's one rule: don't be the one that gets talked about the next day. Not getting completely shitted is the usual way of achieving this.
Re: Perhaps it was lost in translation
La petite motorboat?
I'm happy to say I've never seen it.
YOU MEAN THE MEERKAT'S LYING TO US? THE BASTARD!
Re: "THESE data ARE"
Yeah. Data ARE. Also use "THEE" and "THOU" more often.
The Tolkien family sit down and start singing about gold.
"as it aggravates commuters" is an issue in China? They must have better rail services than the UK, then.
Oh wait. Everyone in the world has better rail services than the UK.
