I don't see why El Reg contacted the RSPCA for comments which inevitably produced irrelevant remarks about primate pets in UK.
Sort out your Psittacula krameri from your Myiopsitta monachus before writing article!
If it is just screwed to the outside of the door it is going to get stolen. Camera etc needs to be outside and the rest inside and wired to the mains.
Re: I'm a republican…
Being a republican is not the same as being a non-conformist though in your case it may be the same as being a foul-mouthed idiot. I always felt that the point about Philip's message and Charles's messages being broken into was that if they could do it to them they could do it to us. As proved to be the case.

Re: I've had a look at this
There is no substitute for Aperture for organising photo - I've tried the others. Aperture still works of course and I think I'll just continue using it since we can always run the required OS in a VM.

As noted in the article, the Gtech can be plugged into a PC.
Right not privilege
It is my understanding that owning a shotgun is a right which the police have the power to negate on reasonable grounds. Has that been changed?
How do they recommend that you remember which long passphrase belongs to which site?

I gave up on the Podcasts app mainly because it would not play just one and then stop (maybe that has changed) and have used Downcast app ever since.
Grocer (no not her)
I seem to remember that a diet almost exclusively of chickpeas etc damages the nervous system so maybe not suitable commercial weight loss exploitation though I like the idea. I think these side effects of pulses are only seen in the poor who are eating them to excess, if that is not a contradiction.
Regarding old and hard chickpeas needing longer cooking, that applies to all pulses so this is exactly the wrong time of year to find good quality ones. Your grocer (remember them?) is your friend an will be able to tell you how ancient the pulses are that he is selling at any one time.
Curiously, the older peas are more expensive if you are buying them for poultry feed as they lose more and more water each year they are kept and thus have a higher protein content per kilo. Same principle as salami etc.
If you are advocating that the poor should live on daily chickpeas, just be aware of Lathyrism which causes shrunken buttocks and other symptoms.

"Re-reading my copy I don't believe I have come close to suggesting you have to use Android to access a Google Calender on the go"
I think you came close when you wrote "Google’s cloudy calendar was the main reason I adopted Android as my mobile OS of choice" which I think implies you cannot use it elsewhere but it's not worth arguing about :)
Sync Google to Apple
No doubt it is a wonderful app but your premise that you have to use Android to sync with Google calendar is way off as I have no trouble syncing several Google Calendars [ie several free G accounts] with my Apple Mac Calendar app and Apple iPod Touch Calendar app.
He says he has all his photos elsewhere
He says he has all his photos elsewhere, it is more that he has lost all the other flickr content - comments, links etc.
Perhaps they will take it out of his salary ...

In court you should ask to affirm and they will produce an alternative oath. However, from memory, it reads "on soul and conscience" which begs several questions :(

No need to stun first in UK provided you are a Jew or Moslem. I believe some Moslems are OK with stunning before throat cutting but Jews are not

Sergeant pilots were still flying in the RAF in 1957 when I was a National Seviceman in Aden. I am fairly sure that they were all Polish.
