Is badgers upping their game what ended the cull?
LG. Like Google?
No, even worse apparently.
Re: What about shoutcast????
Foobar2000 does shoutcast. For music there's no better player for Windows. I use it for ripping CDs to FLAC, converting the FLACs to OGG for a portable player/phone and listening to shoutcast radio.
I'd just installed the K-9 email client immediately before coming to this story.
Re: Does crime fall when people know they are being watched? Yes.
Is the sense of psychological well-being of anyone but a narcissistic exhibitionist degraded by the knowledge that they are being watched all the time? Yes.
Were you stoned when you wrote that?
Now we can send the kids off to play centrifugal bumble-puppy while we knock back the soma and join in the orgy-porgy. And there everyone was, thinking soma would be something like an SSRI when it finally arrived.
Re: barbed hook
Not all anglers use barbed hooks. But yes, torture can be fun. Buy a rod licence and give it a try.
Re: My moggie must be psychopathic
Of course. What would make you think yours was so exceptional?
Re: In my mind it's a bit cruel to the cockroach.
Reptiles don't have antennae.
Re: filled with a bunch of spineless jellyfish
Spineless but with a nasty sting.
Re: I was going to make a "Spare some piss guv?" joke
Technically they wouldn't be cannibals unless they dined on other robots but otherwise I agree. I hope any such "mobile, distributed sensor network" doesn't become a "mobile, disgruntled sensor network".
Re: why is the idea of it actually needed
It is needed in order to allow the grooming police to know that you need to be taken away for re-education because your nose hair trimmer hasn't been reporting back to base sufficiently frequently.
Re: Humph! @ Sir Runcible Spoon
You, Sir, deserve to be elevated far above the lowly position of Knight.
Re: 13 inch maxi-pad
Er, not what I meant. But yeah. Should have used the joke or coat icon.
13 inch maxi-pad
Surely that's a very limited market.
Maybe that kind of thing happens in the offices of journalists. In an office full of software engineers you just see people appearing to be in some sort of totally immersive gaming experience. It's all screens and headphones and no awareness of each other.
Re: "Adrianes", "Adriane"
Ariadne! Her name is Ariadne. It's easy to remember because she is associated with this thread. Follow it and find your way out of this labyrinth of incorrect names. I've already disposed of the bull.
Re: YAWN. I seem to remember...
"WhiteHat Security's Aviator browser has built-in functionality designed to block ads and tracking by default" I'm pretty sure Chrome never offered that.
Re: "clearly did respect"
OK, you're correct. My post had the 'fuming' icon in spirit if not actually in fact and so was more reactive than considered. However, the prosecutor is not in a position to know how widespread these "modern youth attitudes" really are. Nor are the attitudes of the rest of society to be ignored in determining how the girl will be affected. Something posted to a web site can't be guaranteed only to be seen by one's peers. That's the point of the 'Daily Mail Test'.
Re: the only substantial wealth most of us will ever have
So true. It's a terrible deal but still better than unemployment. Having had a run of that in the early 90s which lasted more than three years I'll take selling my time for peanuts any day.
"without her permission"
That's the only bit that matters. The damn prosecutor ought to be up before the beak on something if they can't respect that.
Re: "egotistical narcissist"
I'm an egotistical narcissist and you're all damned lucky to know me.
free content ad network
Slightly off topic, I know. But I keep seeing this on El Reg. Surely it should be content free ad network?
I am a non-American.
I'm here all week folks.
Seven months of winter vs warm, sunny tropics? I don't blame him at all.
Pointing the bone?
Er, no thanks.
Re: They are evil
Yes. End bossiness soon!
Re: naturally gregarious
Not all of us.
Re: too short before it pipes in with some inane verbage
THIS! SO, SO MUCH THIS!
Break out the tartan paint!
I fancy a Dress Gordon would look rather fetching.
Probably too obvious and predictable but...
"It means that netizens should not have any expectation of privacy when chatting confidentially to their buddies via Google Talk (aka GChat) and Google Hangouts
until the bug is crushed."
the guy in charge of education is encouraging plagiarism rather than original thinking?
Not categorising, rewriting Winston. Your job is to rewrite.
C & S
I imagined Common and Superior. But whether Common or Cheap, everyone gets the gist and would rather be seen as Superior, Special etc (if they'd like to be seen with an iPhone at all.) So, provided Apple haven't already produced too many C models, this is just a bit of preemptive up selling, no?
Re: Tell me why I don't like Moon days
Yes, it has a very specific meaning but has been used incorrectly, as you say, for decades in the context of action taken against school pupils. The reason for this is exactly as described by Orwell.
The word is expelled. Excluded, in this context, is yet another piece of insidious Newspeak.
Re: How much does it cost?
Hopefully it will be Touche Turtle.
Re: nothing wrong with digital watches
I agree with most of this. However, an advantage of analogue watches is that it is easier to quickly see how much time you have left up to some later time. If I have to meet someone at noon and it's now 11:37, it's much easier to see that I need to leave in about 20 minutes without having to do the subtraction.
Re: "...even if not everyone knew where Finland was"
Oh, Mr Dabbs!
You remember all that and you think it was crap? No nostalgic yearning at all? I recently bought an LCD from Casio's Retro range and a TX8 (see link)
because I remembered how much fun all this stuff was when I was a kid. I'm starting to suspect that you have no soul.
Re: Rename it!
You forgot Multitude of Sins.

Introverts are not created. We are born.
