So what you're what saying is....
The bit with Smaug was good but the rest tended drag-on?

The bit with Smaug was good but the rest tended drag-on?
C'mon guys, I thought you were IT professionals here. Priorities! =p
You are sniffing something's arse. What the heck did you think it was going to smell of - fresh flowers and pine needles?!
Given that you were training journalists, they probably thought you were talking about the local boozer.
The shameless jokes in El Reg are just getting boulder and boulder....
Shame I missed the submission date, otherwise I'd have gone with "From Beer to Eternity."
Like Midas, except with P45s.
Oh come now. Surely you don't expect our overtaxed, hard working MPs to work during the summer recess? What kind of slave driving tyrant must you be to expect them to work 52 weeks a year?
It really seems like he was taking a dig at the Galaxy Gear.
What's the IT angl- oh wait.
Is the chance of rats because the moon is made of cheese?
Seconded. It's comments like this that make my job as an audiologist all the more difficult. One in seven people in the UK has a hearing problem. My patients are quite literally ages - children with congenital deafness, teens with noise exposure, young mothers with otosclerosis - even cynical and derisive journalists can have hearing problems.
Hearing loss <> old age.
"I hope you brought enough for everybody."
I'm guessing the theory is, once an official movie comes out, the studio that makes it would *possibly* be able to sue other minecraft films and shorts for infringement.
Don't know if that's actually true but it did float through my head as well. I hope it's wrong as there's some really good minecraft youtube videos. Slamacow springs to mind.
"Unfortunately … it would appear that a surprising number of people use webcam conversations to show intimate parts of their body to the other person," GCHQ wrote in a document leaked by ex-NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden to the newspaper."
Did no-one, amongst "the finest intelligence minds in the UK" seriously consider that people cyber with each other over the internet? It's Internet 101 for heaven's sake.
"If 90% of people opt out, we won't have an NHS."
Logically, the fact that we have an NHS now means that either this data harvesting system is active now, or this statement is a load of complete bollocks.
...and there's fuck all you can do about it."
You know, this would be a complete non-issue if he had been, say, a multi-billion dollar search engine company....
Everyone knows the foulest community out there is the MOBA community - Dota 2, LoL and especially Heroes of Newerth. Christ.
I'd be a lot more scared about that list of 72,000 gay people finding its way into the wrong hands and being used by hate groups. =(
Damn straight commenting on here is a waste of money. I want a refund goddamn it!
This is all player created. Not a scripted, repeatable event - a one off piece of history that players can not only see happening but actually participate in. I remember the first time I saw a Titan....it was enormous and it took our fleet to a new home out in null sec. EVE has a lot of flaws but it also has moments of genius I've never seen in any other game.
For those that don't give a shit about fiscal regulation.
Wait, the Reg has readers?
Sorry, couldn't resist.
I ate the Haribo two by two, (Hurrah, hurrah)
I quickly needed to take a poo, (Hurrah, hurrah)
I ate the Harbio by two by two,
An ungodly smell then filled the loo,
They exploded out of my ass
And promptly went down the drain..,
It's pretty obvious. Baffling logic, mad conspiracy theories, random locations all over the world, well funded:
J could also be for Jolla, given that the newest incarnation of Meego made its first handset debut a couple of weeks back.
Also, key lime pie is seriously frigging tasty and blows lemon meringue out of the water. P=
LGBTIA - now including Asexual and Agender folks too! Does that help? =)
Huh. So the Russian government was quite happy to have gay people working for it in the KGB but publicly despises homosexuality....
This is an appallingly bad move on BT's part. Most of the LGBT folks I know first learned about their sexuality and gender identity through online methods, especially forums. A lot of them *cannot* talk to their parents about this stuff through reasons of religion and now, thanks to filters like these, they may not have anywhere else to turn to for impartial advice.
I'll always have fond memories of scrabbling around in a draw full of near identical looking chargers looking for the one with the mini-USB plug instead of the micro-USB plug.
Oh wait, no I won't.
I think I've still got my Sharp PC-1500, along withe printer and leather case for it. If memory serves, it's sitting next to my Sharp Zaurus Linux PDA....
A question that will inevitably be asked:
"What can we do to stop the rise of these evil video games?"
A question that almost certainly won't be asked:
"Why are these people so unhappy that they have to obsessively play games and how can we make their lives better?"
'twas the bite before Christmas and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, because they'd all been bitten by deadly spiders...
Serve them False Morel mushrooms with the turkey and make sure they're a little underdone. Forms a similar fuel when they react with stomach acid. Just make sure they're not smokers.
Until I read it had a Bay Trail processor. I've been burned before on a Transformer with a Bay at the helm.
It might have been that newly discovered species of pygmy cuttlefish, which was shown to have a venom as lethal as the blue-ringed octopus. After biting, it then camoflagues its skin, as cuttlefish do, to look like a false widow in the bottom of a trash can.
It serves as a perfect metaphor for the nature of political discussion on the internet and humankind. We are all, on some level, an exploding whale.
At that price and for those specs, I'm definitely intrigued. Especially if the get a keyboard backing for it...
Agreed - judging from his performance in tonight's episode, John Hurt would have made for a really interesting Doctor. Genuinely scarred and battered.
...and my personal favourite
Substituting physical strength for say, compassion, empathy or mercy. Being strong doesn't mean you aren't an asshole.
Besides, the extra wait means more time for developers to polish the games for it. Net result - we win.
I already have a console that's upgradeable, lets me run the games I want and can be customized.
I call it my PC. <3
Someone should contact the makers of Civilization V and tell them they missed a world wonder from the latest expansion pack - some guy's garage.
Maybe it can give a bonus to Faith generation.
...because helping someone come to terms with being sexually abused, talking someone out of suicide or handling bipolar patients is really easy...right?
Maybe digital listening is falling because we're in the middle of a ball-breaking recession and DAB radios cost a magnitude more than a cheap FM radio?
That said, my only experience of Digital radio was the old Psion Wavefinder. Way ahead of it's time but cool in a geeky way.
...with Windows RT. =[
You raised my hopes and dashed them quite expertly. Bravo, sir!
Having just watched "Threads", this particular 30 year old totally gets it. Mum was very keen on films like that, like When The Wind Blows and so on. There is absolutely nothing cool about nuclear war.
