I can't believe they allow you to set up fu.ck.me.uk
Hooray for a lovely eggcorn.
@Ian Yates: Can we have a map of who's currently suing who?
Saw this linked to from Slashdot earlier:
"Microsoft was just coming off of..."
"When I started planning my network upgrade, Microsoft was just coming off of Vista, Office 2007 and Exchange 2007."
There's a journalist just asking to have their license to use the English language revoked.
It couldn't have happened...
to the wife of a nicer guy.
How dare you submit informed posts, where your knowledge clearly puts you at an advantage.
In future, please refer to Jacqui's post for reference, where you're advised to confuse web applications with server software, and earlier and later versions of said software.
Shame on you.
Regularly see a bright pink VW beetle, reg P1 NNK
And I'd swear about 12 months ago I saw a Ford estate with reg S4 TAN.

Holy fucking deductive logic, Batman.
Good job for me you're not a copper; I *always* leave the car (without a "jump") and meet the police half-way between both vehicles... to sit in the car just strikes me as very poor form.
Xmarks works for me...
Am slightly loathe to post this, as I appreciate that for the OP it's infuriating when software doesn't work, but feel I must address this comment. Xmarks (née Foxmarks) has always worked well across the various PCs I've installed it on... have been a happy user for (perhaps) a couple of years now.
@Melbourne IT hahahaha
They're advertising .com.au domains for sale at $35.00... pa?
To an old colleague...
this was an accepted method of performing any kind of system move / upgrade.
Install the new system, add in the records you want and whoever suddenly loses access will squeal.
Those that don't obviously either weren't using the service.
Whilst I was at first horrified by the idea, the more administrative functions I'm charged with, the more appealing the method seems.
Perhaps he now works at Virgin.
Agreed... it was a really great live TV moment that I'm surprised has gone without mention:
The moment you move from just the facts to an ad hominem attack, you dilute your argument.
It was mentioned in a previous article
Death threats - realistic or not, it's a misuse of the service
When you sign a phone contract, you agree that you won't use the service to persecute others (or however it's phrased).
By doing so, you void your contract and the service can (and perhaps should) be withdrawn.
Ahh, poor old Dappy... it couldn't have happened to a nicer chap *snigger*
"guesstimate" is a wonderful portmanteau, hinting that an estimate may often be little more than a guess (which many times it is).
Your threat of violence and poor use of language reflects badly upon you. I'm surprised you've advertised either.
audible.co.uk > .aa > CD > mp3... ta DA!
I took advantage of the audible.co.uk £12 for 3 months for 3 audio books offer the other day, only to realise after having parted with money that you can't get a vanilla MP3 of the audio books... which kinda defeats the object as I wanted to listen to them going to and from work on my non-DRM MP3 player.
However, it looks like you can burn the .aa audio books to CD... which I can then rip to MP3.
So I've got to jump through some silly hoops to get an MP3 of something I've paid for and which they don't make readily available but can be obtained via a back-door. What a bunch of f***wits!
"If it is a publicity stunt it's probably not the wisest that there has ever been - a hoax like this can panic users into believing there is a genuine security problem, and panic can lead internet users to make bad decisions," said Graham Cluley
Yeah, riiiight. My mother often panics when she hears a web server has been hacked, esp if they've gone to the trouble of using Flash. Usually she'll then e-mail her online banking credentials to everyone on the Interwebs.
I'll refrain from making the obvious pun on your last name.
Anyone remember the URL of the web page you could go to (posted about 10 years ago) that IIRC popped your browser window full-screen and looked like it was wiping the hard drive and installing a different OS?
Now THAT was good...

May your music playing experience be always ruined by missing or inaccurate ID3 tags.
I'd like to pay tribute to the Bank of America...
and their employee's unswerving adherence to a well-established security protocol.
Very laudable... :p
"He died very rich and you can't do better than that."
Respectfully, I beg to differ.
OpenDNS and Virgin... why the distinction?
"The difference of course is that OpenDNS customers sign up for this service knowing full well that the company does this."
I have a credit card, and periodically they send through a note about changes to the Terms of the service. If I decide I don't like the changes they've imposed, I'm free to switch to another card.
OpenDNS might have introduced the ad-serving before you signed up... but Virgin are doing this now. Deal with it.
As much as we might dislike it, Virgin are free to change the Terms as they see fit, given that they supply the service and, as such, dictate the Terms of the service offering.
If their customers dislike it, they can vote with their feet. And if enough do, Virgin might rethink the change.
Of course, I can be this detatched as I don't use Virgin :)
"the wise and funny man"
"Graham Linehan, the wise and funny man behind Father Ted, has been using Twitter to round up defenders of the NHS against ever more insane attacks from US rightwing pundits."
Fixed that for you.
Yeah, someone forwarded me something similar a few days ago, in which the original e-mail was talking about "children's mobiles being cold-called" in slightly hysterical tones.
Forwarder said "I've put all my children's mobile numbers in the unsubscribe page".
At which point I read the site and explained by reply that at a quid a pop it's hardly likely that someone's going to use it as a method of cold-calling, esp. when you or the children (who's thinking of them?) have to phone them back.
When I pointed out that by entering mobile numbers that (a) whilst not advertising them they'd probably have to be retained (in case the number you're requesting "removed" is re-sourced from another tel. no. supplier) and (b) you're actively populating their mobile phone number database (and are then at their mercy as to how they use that data), she wasn't best pleased!
"...and ending use of its clunky peer-to-peer technology"
Does this mean that KService is no longer installed when you install the iPlayer s/w?
Does 112 also bypass mobile phone number lock?
With mobile phone number lock on I've still unintentionally dialled 999 when the phone was in a pocket.
Does 112 also override the mobile phone number lock in the same way? I'm reluctant to test it out and can't find any web pages that say either way...
