Where did you get the idea that only old people can be hearing impaired?

Don't tell 'im your registered email address Pike@homeguard.co.uk!
Re: This is clearly a techie site
Yeah, the clue is at the top of the page - "The Register: Sci/Tech News for the World
Also, it's not just for watching TV shows, from the article tag line "gaming and media console".
It's no wonder they can't get proper jobs!
Re: Going against the trend
You still need a TV license to watch from a PC.
My front room is still rockin' a big arse CRT.
We don't really watch a lot on there, I do have a PS3, but Rocksmith2014 probably performs better on the older kit anyway.
I do want a HD telly, but there's always something more important going on.
Re: ::shakes head:: @Ben
It's not my job to educate you, if you are genuinely interesting in why you are wrong then do the research.
Like I say earlier, Gox was not a bank, I'm not sure what you think your point is.
You also seem quite upset that I didn't reply to a post you made, it's nothing personal I only generally come on here once or twice a day. Sorry if I left you madly pressing f5 awaiting my return.
Re: ::shakes head::
I think he's under the impression that Gox is bitcoin and bitcoin is gox.
Anyone keeping coin on Gox for any longer than it took to make a transaction was doing it wrong, anyone storing large amounts of BTC with ANY third party is doing it wrong.
Had Xenon on the ol' speccy (128k +2, not for the purists, but that's the one I grew up with and it was MINE rather than a family machine or hand-me-down).
Xenon 2 on the Amiga 500 after I finally managed to deliver enough papers (IRL, not the arcade :) ) to afford one.
I'd have trouble thinking of a more impressive port on the old speccy, apart from the lack of colour it was perfection, and that hardly ever happened for speccy ports. I reckon Xenon 2 was probably the first time I didn't have to feel a bit embarrassed about my love of computer game music...a love that died with the birth of the .mp3 soundtrack.
I feel really very sorry for the gamers of today, where are their Bitmap Brother/Bullfrog/Psygnosis? Not that the Bitmaps went anywhere, they just mysteriously stopped, I've always wondered what the story was there.
C'mon Canada, show us your talents!
I flippin' love Canadians.
Re: Whereas if it was a bank doing these transactions
Do "the bitcoin evangelista" really post here, or is it mostly Daily Mail reject "technophobes" these days?
Anyway, what balls, are you saying banks have never lost money due to incompetence or been robbed? Nonsense!
Re: I need to re-think my charging!
I did not know of this, I'm almost impressed enough to send you sixteen pounds!
Re: And what is the condition of her cat?
It was left sodden after that unpleasant business around the back alley.
Hey look, it's the worst of both worlds, well done!
"€10,000 ($13,743) "
While this is all very amusing, I can't help but point out that the last alleged DPR was sitting on about $28 meeelion without stealing from anyone. This was apart from what the Feds took from Silk Road itself.
If it is a Ponzi scheme, why on earth would they cash out so early with so little compared to what this market is worth? Didn't the pot sellers of Colorado make more than the stolen amount in the first week? And Silk Road as I'm sure you are aware, sells a lot more than pot to people all over the world.
They fucked up and lost a shitload of other peoples drug money, isn't that a juicy enough story already?
Absolutely, they knew it would make a nice attention grabbing headline that blogs would all jump on.
I didn't think FAST really cared about anything as long as the protection money keeps rolling in.
The old folks were saying the same thing when Larry was out wasting his time on a push bike.
Some things never change, mostly when they do it's cosmetic.
Re: The Oxygene of publicity...
making a living is tough for us all.
if you don't like playing gigs, you could always get a job at a cheese sandwich factory.
Jean, if music was free then you might have a point...but it's not, so you don't.
I would quite happily pay a reasonable monthly fee for all you can eat media, maybe one day the industry will stop trying to gouge us both.
yet again, the problem there is whether the money I put in, will get anywhere near the artists I would like to support...you not being one of those artists for me.
I'll stick with bandcamp or the old ways for now thanks.
I'll buy that for a dollar!
I only saw that a JP Morgan exec had taken a dive at first so came in to say "Oh what a terrible waste"...then I realised that he was just an IT monkey, so I guess I'll say the same...but actually mean it.
What a pair of moon faced malcontents!
The swines doing this who just stop in front of doorways and staircases...well I'll just say their chance of an "accident" goes up exponentially every time they do it in front of me in the train station during rush hour >.<
Great choice, Rhubarb goes wonderfully with both Apples and Blackberries!
Yeah, all the really smart people are at Ladbrokes pissing their wages away on nags and tabs.
Re: It's all good
"It's better to keep consumption under control than just let it explode."
Are you really under the impression that anyone who wants drugs is not already able to get hold of them?
Re: It's all good
Wars always have people profiteering without doing anything to advance either cause.
Re: Where is the list of these banned sites
and now you'll have to go all the way to Orkney if you want to see some Twatt.
price does seem to be stabilising at about the same place it was before the last ridiculous bubble at least.
Probably a good time to buy people the gift of bitcoin for crimbo.
pizza, energy drink and Tinie Tempah
or as it's otherwise known, the Ludovico Technique.
My wife would be happy to knit while watching me slay zombies, she's not always in the mood for zombie slaying herself.
And of course both are important skills, we'll still want to wear jumpers when the zompocalypse FINALLY arrives.
Damn their oily hides!
Re: Austrian Death Machine
Have to say, Arnocorps had it cornered many years earlier.
Now who is your daddy and what does he do?
"Poking up a finger from underneath the water’s surface"
Yeah, a finger indeed.
Careful with the Fly Agaric, I believe they need to be dried out correctly or they can make you pretty poorly instead of flying you to the moon.
Well that's what I heard :)
Re: Urban dictionary has it about right
Distant fourth place you mean? You forgot about the Dolphins.
Whip it out in a bar and all your friends are certain to go: “Oooh...”

"taking into account the context defined for these benchmarks: day-to-day user experience of an average, non-technical user."
None of this really applies to me then, I'm anything but average.
As you were iDrones :p
I thought parody and satire were counted as fair use? Unless the NSA want to argue it will weaken sales of their own branded merchandise?
Personally, I think all 3 of the big players (if you can still call Nintendo that) have lost touch with the players and reality in general.
I'll be standing well back, waiting a good long while before even thinking of entertaining the possibility that I might perhaps buy a new console.
Xbone is looking least likely, they were already on thin ice with how much of a rip off they pulled with on-line functions being behind a pay wall on the last one.
Some sort of Wii is actually more likely (as a secondary machine), because the wife likes the idea of Wii-Fit, they are actually fun in small doses and Cash Generator/CeX are full of them.
Some things you just can't help, but there is something about a lovely curvy young lady that makes me go a bit "Sid James/Carry On"....I suppose the difference is that I'm not about to bombard anyone with cock pics and rapey fantasies.
A lot of people in this world are arses and if you are an attractive person with pictures to prove it, some of them are going to be attracted your way. You shouldn't feel you have to change your life to accommodate or mollify them though, I don't want to live in a world designed for the shittiest, lowest common denominator.
I'm shocked at how short sighted this article is, you really can't see the problem with the government running a list of sites they don't want people to see?
Yes it all sounds very reasonable today in it's "for the children" guise, I'm not so sure they'll be saying the same thing in ten years time if we let Cammy get away with it now.
How is this a reddit plan? all they did was report it. Does that mean it's now also a register plan?
I think Charles should take legal action for this disgusting discrimination. It's ageist, sexist and beardist...all points I have a vested interest in!
Yeah down with this sort of thing, nobody should be allowed to be more of a deviant than a tory politician!
" I did what I did. I know the spirit in which I did it."
No you slack jawed yokel. You will be judged on the results of your actions, not the woolly headed notion you had in mind while you were fucking your people without lube.
I don't have words to express how glad I am to have finished my week on call today.
