Re: "Jubilee clips"
I always read that as Jubblie clips.
Ignore me - on with the boffinry!
Re: Greene King IPA?
Agreed. The beer's pish and their policy of buying decent breweries and turning their beer to pish is, well, pish as well.
Banana or Raspberry. Which is best?
If it does I hope they ship em quicker than Rasberry Pi - otherwise it'll just be a black smear of banana-smelling goo.
Re: "just Linux"
I expect at least some of the BSDs will be along shortly as well.
Re: Microsoft to devs: Don't ruin Win 8....
[guffaw] Coming from Microsoft is is hilarious.
Wigan Kebab/Pie Barm
Recipe's simple (pre-nosh lubrication is a given):
Take one pie
Slap it on a barm (a roll for you soft Southern pansies)
Bit of gravy.
That's true, though having Amazon as your main competitor would knock any company's valuation.
Re: But what's it for?
... and I don't understand how all those buns and kittens add up to $1.5bn before anyone asks
Re: But what's it for?
Pictures of cakes and kittens as far as I can tell.
The generation gap is an interesting one. Most people I tend to text use proper English - punctuation even. But after my niece taught my mum to text, so it took many years of moaning before she finally stopped using Teenage Gibberish (aka txtSpkLOL or whatever it's called).
A happy side effect is that having to use Proper English she sends me fewer texts.
Good weight and the hapless fools can console themselves with chips. Or a nice soup.
Don't buy a laptop in a carpark. It can't be that difficult can it?
Re: meerkat pr0n
Rule 34 [shudder]
Re: El Reg Alternative Units
Of course you are correct. Mea cupla.
May I offer you a 227.2 nanoPool of Blighty's Finest?
I won't be happy til I'm ordering a nice 0.3317 of a Bulgarian Aribag of beer.
'name that font'
Mine's the one with the crusty socks in the pocket.
It's worth nowhere near its valuation no matter how many chunks the $100bn is split into.
Surely no one would be so stupid to pay so much for this MySpace in the making.
Targetting the goth market then.
Well! That's! Settled! Then!
I can't see anyone having the slightest problem with this. I suggest we all move along and let this fine gentleman get on with running Yahoo!
Re: It works just fine for Apple
That's because Apple aren't restricting their users to IE.
"it's just not a route-planning app" - just another load of tat with the word "Olympics" on it, then.
God speed you Playmonaut! You brave, brave little man.
Re: Standing 1.13m (3ft 8") tall and weighing 130kg (20st 4lbs)
Of much greater relevance is that they were 8 linguini tall and weighed 31 jubs (approx).
Come up with a name, boffins!
By Vaz's logic, I should be a millionaire because I played Monopoly.
(Hint: I'm not)
Re: Fantastic phone
They'll be shipping one my way unless something very dramatic happens in the 'droid market ...
It's in the eye of the pollee but I'd be a "neither agree nor disagree" as it's a stronger "meh" vote than "not sure".
Re: You mean...
"Draw it using pen and paper or Microsoft Paint?"
c) Google Images
A whole Blackberry article without a single mention of RIM job? Much more of this and I'll be forced to cancel my subscription.
"Landing an SUV-sized vehicle next to the side of a mountain 85 million miles from home is always stimulating."
Lovely understatement, Mr Boffin, sir.
Re: Anyone else have to go to wikipedia
Not me, but I do have the Nathan Barley box set instead.
Re: Poor Game and Gamestation AGAIN
I imagine they won't be a factor by the time the next gen consoles appear :o\
I'm guessing "yes", then "no".
Follwing FB's jizzing $1bn on Instragram this might even be a valid business model.
The OP contrasted science and religion quite accurately IMO.
I taught myself to program on one of these and am still paying the bills with code. Looking at the comments above I'm not alone.
Happy birthday the Speccy!
Re: If it's *possible* to be serious about this...
There's also the terrific Bell End in the Black Country
Re: Better reception?
Is that why I lost a shedload of channels when they switched off analogue round here?
I've little time to watch TV so it's not much of a problem though the lack of BBC4's a pain.
Very , very true.
Re: Twitter leaves you wide open
Don't say anything on Twitter that you wouldn't put on a huge billboard next to a photo of your face. Never forget it's very, very public and act accordingly.
Re: Engraved handle on a kitchen knife...
That knife is one of the two things on that list I'd consider making space for and I've no illusions about being a "proper" chef (let alone Heston, whose food is pretentious beyond belief IMO).
The other's the pasta maker.
$1bn buys a lot of grainy cat photos, it seems.
Re: on the rear you'll find a 3in LCD...
The Wales, as a unit of area, is not applicable. The screen should correctly be described as 0.5443 linguini.
I see the pound's took another hammering against the Galactic Groat.
I have little more than another "me too" to add to this. OPERA acted entirely correctly in this matter, demonstrating science working at its very best and fully deserve their applause. A crying shame if this is the only reason.
