Re: Re: Re: The real problem ...
You seem to be confusing "global climate" with "the weather where you are".
I'm not making a comment on whether or not climate change is genuine (I'm yet to be convinced by either camp) - just on your straw man argument.
I'd say they have a bad rep because a lot of people don't understand probability. So if they say there's an 80% chance of rain, then if it doesn't rain people say they're wrong.

"I have just unlocked the telling the burglars I'm not in badge on 4square"
They're doing it wrong
We need to get some Wombles in space suits.
Who are these people?
I bet it's a million bots.
But this is Apple
People will overlook shoddy software if it comes in a pretty enough box.
I received a couple and smelled a rat. Not that difficult a rat to smell. As you say, Ticketweb asking me to update Acrobat Reader is odd. I am a bit miffed about the deulge of spam I can now expect.
Fessing up to the breach (and quickly) is to Ticketweb's credit, though. Keeping quiet about it would've been a lot more helpful to the spamming basts wot done it.
So a qualified thumbs up.
Fookin ell that was a quick liftoff!
Sitting on the fence

No way are they letting mobile phone users on my open air smoking platform. I want to enjoy a cancer stick in peace and quiet thankyouverymuch!
"but it'll only be available from Carphone Warehouse"
That's a shame. Roll on when my contract's up and I can ditch CW.
Uncovered wickets, Chris Tavaré, etc. and so on.
I was hoping for something like Lord Beginner's Cricket Lovely Cricket. Imagine my disappointment!
"medical staff quickly discover just where he's hidden the shovel he intended to use to disinter Marilyn Monroe"
I'm torn between the keyboard and beer icons.
Have a Friday beer on me Sr Reg!
Maybe that's why so many people voted for the shittrumpet, then.
It'll be like WWII. They'll spend years denying there's a problem then show up late.
Publishing an RSS feed or similar costs time and money, but not much.
"96% of Americans without passports"
It's more like 63% but your point is valid.
So on average it's still pretty damned fast!
Aonther story featuring adolscent smutty giggles. Naturally I approve of this.
Folks are already getting prototype enclosures from shapeways, just waiting for the boards.
I really, really like the Lego idea.
An anti-static bag and some gaffer tape?
Black hole fanboi? Guilty as charged, though I don't feel the need to attack, say, pulsars and quasars in internet fora.
It's a figure of speech, meaning small.
For example jockeys are larger than a pint but referred to as pint-sized.
