I thought it was possible for light to surpass the speed of light if a black hole was involved. Could be wrong of course - xkcd hasn't done a comic strip on it and thus my knowledge of physics is limited.
If you need to fire a million rounds a minute
Learn to aim. Seriously.
"The fit and proper test"
"£18,000, £19,000, £20,000 - congratulations Mr Murdoch, you've successfully passed our rigorous testing procedure. It's going to be even more rigorous in the future when we bump our price up to £30k."
I'd like to congratulate El Reg
....on being perhaps the only news organ in the world not to have spent pages and pages lambasting Amy Winehouse as a drug addicted social wreckage, before making the mother of all U-turns and painting her as a beautiful delicate flower whose life tragically cut short.
A sensible move
Finally Dixons have found a place to operate from where their prices won't seem like extortion in comparison.
F.A.O Apple fanbois in this thread
See the guy in the article? That's your new benchmark.
Real clock up there.
I AM MURDOCH SON OF MURDOCH!
FEAR MY LAWYERS!
"organised by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals."
And with one simple sentence, the scant credibility this counter PR exercise had vanishes faster than a cow at an Aberdeen Angus Steakhouse.
Spotted some missing
He has a pretty good selection of LCD games but what he doesnt have is the LCD game wristwatches, of which there were 5 or so. Naturally, I have them all, thus making me superior to him.
So wretched commentards....
What do you think the name should be for this extremely small moon?
I'm going with "munchkin" personally, due to its size.
And with the end of the shuttle program
....comes the end of hope for future manned space exploration in our lifetime. How depressing and "economically sensible". *spits*
Sounds pretty mucky
Whatever way you look at it. Has the company stated why this software is installed? I don't want my back account details recorded by *anyone*, let alone my ugly face.
These enquiries were set up on behalf of the public by politicians in order to clear the air for everyone, get to the truth of the matter and ensure that these mistakes are never repeated agai-
Ah, who am I kidding. They're all self serving motherfuckers with all the social conscience of a BOFH going after a paid vacation.
Watson asked Murdoch if it was true that his organisation had a zero tolerance to wrongdoing. The media tycoon answered "No. We encourage phone hacking in all forms while snorting copious amounts of cocaine off prostitutes tits." The media tycoon then promptly proceeded to facepalm.
You mean seppuku?
Swallowing large chunks of a London theatre can often prove fatal.
You are incorrect in this regard
It could indeed happen to a nicer pile of crap - The Daily Mail.
Perhaps a fake news story endorsing the health benefits of crack cocaine, or a review of Manhunt 2 written by a 6 year old?
Looks good and all
...but I rather not have Hugo Weaving punching my face in over it.
Mine's the long black leather one that I keep tripping over.
I miss my T3 =(
For all those whining about the "orbit" part
What, you'd rather have something like "High Up Rocket Propelled Dirgible Elevated Register Plane?"
You can type and watch TV on your girlfriend?
If we release the update, how will we manage to sell the almost identical looking Xoom X2 with identical specs but **ANDROID 3.2**?
Sad to say it...
...but eventually all MMOs must die.
I was really really sad to see the shutdown of Tabula Rasa. Admittedly, they could have worked on the endgame stuff more but it also had some really neat features (especially the Logos and class system). Same will happen to FF XI, Guild Wars 1 when 2 arrives. That doesn't mean to say they are not good games - they all have their merits.
But nothing lasts forever.
I tried that, then my boss came in to ask why I was laughing so loud. I managed to stop laughing when I realised we'll never see the theatrical release on DVD.
I really wish I had seen the original galaxies when it was first launched, with the dozens of different classes and a very infrequent jedi here and there.
From what I gather most people would have gladly seen it shutdown after the NGE & CE changes.
...is just a lot of hot air. And it smells.
The comments section won't be the same without you around. We'll be able to say what we think, for a start.
Best of luck with the future though.
....your companion? Did you have to eventually incinerate it?
Or was it one of those where you fed people into it to watch them get sliced, diced and otherwise horribly mutilated?
I'd buy a coconut phone.
He had an eye for the tower since he first saw Lord of the Rings.
And the tower had an eye for him.
Will Symbian have a Belle end or can it keep going?
Would it be fighting Megatron or joining forces with him?
As for the phone itself, looks distinctly meh.
Both topics are related to each other. While I would love a third series of Spaced, I strongly suspect that with an incomplete team, it would turn into a disaster like another comedy series I know....
Maybe I misunderstanding here
But is this some sort of attempt at retrophrenology, as described by Terry Pratchett in one of his novels?
In brief, phrenology is a method of determining someone's personality through the examination of bumps in the skull. Retrophreonology is the means of altering personality traits by creating bumps on the head.
"Certainly sir. That'll be £200 for the religious further, plus an additional £10 for wear and tear on the lump hammer."
Its like someone said above - script kiddies are the equivalent of BB guns in Anon's arsenal but I'd be willing to bet they have more than a few pieces of heavy artillery somewhere.
All well and good
But what's the Roman for Distributed Denial of Service?
Modern technology, eh?
Now script kiddies from the latest hacking cult can attack our bodies...
"Sorry I'm disappointing you, love. I think my crotch is being DDoS'ed by Lulzec."
Don't panic folks!
If it looks like a threat we can fly a nuclear bomb up to it on one of our Shuttles...
Oh. Looks like we're fucked then.
What's more important here - company reputation or someone's personal details?!
Oh wait. EA.
Oh sweet zombie Jesus
I'm thinking of running a sweepstake for the next big company/organisation to announce that they've been hacked. Place your bets below, here's a few to get you started:
5) Xbox Live Arcade
Does Curiousity have a crowbar arm on it?
+1 more unhappy VM customer
The router they supplied for my connection is a clapped out D-Link that drops connections like a whore drops her knickers. On the rare occasions where I'm not getting disconnected, I enjoy regular lag spikes and a lot of rage from my teammates as my connection costs us yet another victory.
I have a dream
I dream that one day, people accused of technical crimes such as these will be tried by a panel of technical experts, rather than Joe Plebb off the street who classes anything beyond the power switch as "computer hacking".
It's been a good few years for Indie work
World of Goo, Plants vs Zombies, Braid, Limbo, The Void - it's really good to see some originality creeping back into games, rather than more generic Halo knock-offs.
This is the result of freakish UI device incest.
Apple dealers hit with Lion bar
Resellers complain about being covered in chocolate and wafer pieces.
So in real life
Mushroom eats Mario?
"Sure, you will mostly disagree, but you have to applaude anyone who poke an angry bear with a big stick."
I could also stick my cock into a mains outlet* but that still wouldn't stop it being a really dumb move.
*With a suitable adaptor from PC World ofc.
But as theories go, it's not a bad one plus I'm pretty sure it would have the desired effect, assuming the low-trousered yoof puts down his bottle of White Lightning long enough to listen to you.
