"wtf is a rebounding bullet?"
It would probably have broken the skin and lodged itself between/in her ribs.
"There should be no charges brought if the hunters were complying with the law."
...which is exactly the sort of thing that will be established by the investigation.
Oh, that bloody excuse again: "People, strongly, dislike change."
Well sometimes people are right.
Also, I genuinely liked the change from 98 to XP, but wouldn't have touched ME if you'd paid me. I liked the change from XP to 7 even more, but absolutely hated every second I had to deal with the wife's Vista laptop. So, personally I just don't like change for the worse.
No he's saying it's still pretty popular. MS claim they've designed all the start menu anyone will need, but his sales say otherwise.
Yes but you have a touch screen. The Win 7 menu would be horrible with a touch screen, so no wonder you find it more intuitive.
...but HR get grumpy if you take them off to cool down.
Looks like a Vermicious Knid to me.
It may taste bacon-like, but what about the texture?
I'm hoping for Castaway on Mars.
...with a now defunct Martian rover playing the part of Wilson.
That's Father's Day sorted :)
...assuming it turns up on time.
God bless the MOD.
Since they've said something like "Windows 10 will be the last version", with any subsequent changes taking the form of incremental patches rather than discrete service packs or full releases, why don't they just go the whole hog and just call it "Windows"?
"Does anybody here upgrade their washing machines, toasters, ovens, HiFi amps, AV equipment, etc. ?"
Sorry, crap analogy. I rather expect my washing machine or oven (both of which cost less than this 'affordable' iMac) to last for at least 10 years. Sensible people buy AV equipment in modules, i.e. buying a separate amp, tape/disk/holo-disk-from-the-future reader, radio etc. and swap the individual components out as they become obsolete/break. As for toasters, I wouldn't spend more than £25 on one but I'd still expect it to last a few years.
I'm pretty sure that iFixit have demonstrated that it's all but impossible to upgrade anything on the current iMacs. They're nice and all, but the overpriced options you choose at purchase are what you're stuck with.
Shooters (first and third-person) will always be mouse+keyboard games, but I generally prefer using a controller for a sword, sorcery, and horse-riding game like this.
Just be sure to plan trips to the swamps to minimise trips back and forth. Otherwise it'll get pretty tiresome.
It's more like Cadbury happily making and giving away chocolate for free, just for the hell of it, without involving Asda at all. Then Asda persuading Cadbury that they should start charging for the chocolate, as long as Asda gets a 75% cut.
Even that analogy doesn't work, since the biggest cut was going to Bethesda, who aren't contributing anything at this point.
One problem was mod developers taking down their own free mods and putting them behind a pay wall. SkyUI is a good example, since it's more or less essential to make the game playable.
However the real problem, as I see it, is that once someone pays for a mod they can justifiably expect it to actually work as advertised and receive support.
"Nobody expects the... Oh bugger!"
Also, where the Spanish Inquisition after Jews, specifically?
Generally a watch that only performs the function of a watch doesn't need replacing until you whack it into a door frame and the second hand falls off. Battery death isn't even a problem, since A) they last for ever and B) you can open the back yourself and stick a new one in for a few quid.
I like techno bits and bobs as much as the next commentard, but I see no reason for smart watches at all.
CICADA: Close-in Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft
Julian didn't bother to turn up for the vote on banning letting agents charging fees to tenants. As a member of his constituency who doesn't enjoy coughing up £75 for a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy of a tenancy agreement, I say screw him!
...or a burger.
Presumably Labour and the Conservatives where specifically mentioned because they've actually been in government, or at the head of one.
It's probably the civil service's fault as much as the politicians. I rather suspect they make all the real decisions, no matter what party is in power.
Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?
100mb/s? I'd be happy if the 30mb/s I pay for was stable.
You must not live in the south. Here you'd have to buy at least 400 to get one free.
I guess we need to wait for Google flying cars that fly themselves before these things go mainstream.
On top of what they'll be paying on their bills.
Better to keep them all in one place, so they don't bother the rest of us.
Everyone knows it's a small province of the superstate Oceania.
"Thankyou [...]. However in the future, I would prefer a nondescript briefcase to the sack with a dollar sign on it."
If you chop your own hands off, you're holding it wrong.
I'm confused. If this was a serious article then your rant might be warranted, but I'm pretty sure the gist was:
- Study finds people who binge-watch are sad, lonely and overweight
- Study conducted by Muppet
"The credentials of the authors of the paper ...
... don't automagically negate the observation."
That very much depends on the credentials of the author.
If they had a PhD in sandwich making, would you still take their conclusions seriously?
Now please make it illegal for a website to ask to install its mobile app every time you visit.
It would, presumably, effect loading times. I've seen Assassin's Creed: Unity running on an XBone and the load times are ridiculously long; often they're well over a minute, per cut scene.
Only two of these were less than £200; in fact they were £1 less than £200.
I would like to get better speakers for my TV, so a list of options around £100 would be very useful.
What about all those technologies that came out of war that are now used in civilian life all the time?
Penicillin? Computers? Radar, and microwave ovens as a byproduct?
Of course, there are plenty of technologies that aren't useful for anything other than killing people, but in this case I'm sure there are plenty of civilian applications for big lasers that can burn things as long, safe, distances.
I'm also a VM customer, and for some reason the only junk mail is from VM trying to sell me a service I already receive. Idiots.
It appears to (as I've said, I've just started the trial), and the best I could get on my purchase today was delivery on Thursday.
I've just started my 1-month trial of Amazon Prime. At best, I'll be getting the first class post option for free.
At least I'm not actually paying for the service I'm not receiving.
An article like this is always nice from time to time. The free AV tools people used to suggest are now bloated pieces of junk (I'm looking at you AVG), so pointing out the alternatives to those who haven't been following the trends is always helpful.
Lots of universities are adopting an open access policy though, even for industry-funded projects.
