Hmm, tough choice.

Worser??? Dont know what language that is...
The standard of English employed by the English speaking fraternity just drops day by sodding day.
Oh god....Messenger debacle MK2
I have been a staunch IE user since day 0.
I have resisted the likes of Chrome (especially), fire fox, opera et-all simply because IE fulfilled my needs for a browser. However, the bloat is starting to set in.. I detest Skype and i detest having the fucker hard baked in to my browser of choice even more...
So, i ditched messenger due to Skype and switched to an alternative, looks like i will be doing the same with my browser..
Way to go MS.... Keep going........My MS Love-o-meter just took another dive...
Re: Rock and Roll is a young man's game
Gary Numan and John Foxx are now both producing the best music of their careers. So I disagree.
Cars, Are Friends Electric, Down in the Park to name a few of Numans frankly, fucking seminal bits of music. Although he went of the rails with the likes of radio heart and a few other odditys, i cant imagine he could ever top the quality of music he was pumping out in the 80's. But i will now open my archives up and have a listen to his newer stuff..
As for Foxx, "Underpass" HAS to be the tune i think of when i hear his name.
Have to laugh
Only a few years ago the pretentious little lepricorn was harping on about the fact that their latest album was plastered all over the intertubes via torrent and how he wanted torrent BANNED, Banned then burned...
So it's probably the fact that their latest digital pile of aural excrement HAD to be pushed all over the sodding world, only this time via I-Tunes to get any bugger to listen to it...
Just like Dr Dre or whatever
it refers to itself as, these will be a pointless piece of crapology endorsed by a an equally crap "star" that the gullible fools will be falling over themselves to obtain...
Until the next big thing in (C)rap(ping) technology appears..
Destined to be filed under "B".
Re: Many of us are forced to use MS Software
They came shipped with WP and were like rocking horse shite if you lost yours (or more likely , nicked).
Re: One thing they haven't clarified...
Lionel, why are you able to construct and articulate that but yet be unuable to grasp the difference between "of" and "have". It's as big a faux-paus as "axed" as opposed to "asked".
However "should had of" also makes no sense. Or as the other commentard stated "Should've".
I AM a grammar nazi, but I am not trolling, it's an honest question.
So, just for clarification "should of" does not exist, should not exist, will not exist.
NB "should, of course, done XYZ" is permissible.
Re: One thing they haven't clarified...
Should of gone AC you fool, start running
Should HAVE gone AC you fool, start reading a sodding dictionary.
Re: Front-wheel drive
Indeed, i built a 750w hub motor electric bike running off 3 12v alarm batteries secured to the rear panier. As they were SLA batteries, i only had a range of about 5 miles, but that was 5 miles ALL electric, 30mph i could top out at without peddaling once... And tourqe!! Im not a small bloke by any means but this thing pulled me along from a standing start no troubles at all...
Re: Any fule kno that
May i suggest "stinking bishop" for a full on nasal assualt the likes of which you have yet to experience.
My other half once decided to treat me to some after hearing my mentioning it. On the bus, with it in her shopping bag, getting looks from everyone....
Re: It's gotten better.
To a Linux user?
Re: It's gotten better.
And your inability to stop the crap from being installed on windows is who's fault exactly????
Re: Do they really care?
Ahh, you mean "Badgers Arse" brand, with added wood pulp and flint chippings...

"Well, the poorer members of society tended to get fairly thoroughly shafted..."
No changes there then....
That is all...

Re: Reminds me of Maplins
Re: Another one bites the dust...
Wont ever happen.
Old style electronics hobbyists are a rare breed. Open any modern device, see a 0.6w 100k metal film resistor anywhere labelled brown black yellow??? No...
Everything these days is SMD or SOC.
Its a shame cos i enjoy building circuits but without specialist tools and parts its a dying hobby...
Look at maplins. headed down the same path..
You have to order a resistor now as they dont stock em...
Re: Another one bites the dust...
Or Tandy as they were known in the UK.
"My Wife (who's very non-technical) is able to use Linux at work, and she doesn't even know what compiling (software) means."
In other words, YOU installed linux, set it all up, put all the pretty icons on the desktop and said "here, love, press this to email and this to surf".
What happens when it doesn't email and surf. I'm sure your non techie SOH can then easliy reinstall it and set it all up...
Ahh, thats where YOU come back in.
I have a non techie wife, she uses windows because i use windows. Doesnt mean she can fix it when it borks out on her....
pushing stuff onto you from within their walled garden is news how?
Downvote away, but they really are showing their true colours.
The rot is starting to set in.
Re: 500,000 Batter Packs
Beat me to it.
Does Harry Ramsden have any shares in tesla???
A quick search on some of the less "pleasant" sites on the web will enlighten you to what happens if you are accused of stealing a chicken or a loaf of bread in the wonderful land of Nigeria et-al. This poor sod ought to take his moolah and GTFOOT.....El sharpish...
I have an account i could help him to offload some of it into....
Re: This is a positive thing.
"their technical/repair team are total idiots."
Sadly, as i speak from bitter experience, the Nokia repiar team can also be as bad.
Re: Only last night ..
WTF is a "scotch pie"??
Scotch egg, yeah. But a scotch pie???
And dont "LMGTFY". Can a true scottish commentard enlighten this sassenach?
Nail on the head.
And yet we STILL give millions to India in aid....
Makes my shit itch to see people in this country using food banks, heat or eat, kids failing to get proper meals yet we splurge billions in aid to countries whos priorities are arse about tit...
"Boffins have warned that humanity may have missed out on finding aliens because we are looking for the wrong signs."
Or because they have seen enough to know to stay the fuck away from us.
When did THAT creep into existence????
Re: and that other German brand who's name escapes me
Probably a brushless motor in that case.
As cars come with a variety of engines, chosen by YOU at the time of purchase, AFTER taking a test drive you decide the engine is wrong, that's your own stupid fault for failing to test/research.
Why the fuck would you expect to be compensated for buying, of your own volition, the wrong thing???
Re: OEM Pricing?
"I can see this ruling resulting in users having to buy and install their own operating systems now."
"I can see this ruling resulting in users having a choice into which operating system they would like to install".
Simple. As most good solutions to complex problems are....
Now, watch as google fuck it all up.
is, always has been and always will be a festering hole on the arse of civilisation. Don't hold your breath (unless you go there) for the government to do anything. They are as corrupt as the bastards running the scams.
I ordered torque, by the time i had gone downstairs, plugged the OBDII adapter in, paired it, ran torque my 15 mins had already expired. Fortunately Torque is good software but WHY does software so flagrantly fall outside normal consumer goods law!!!!
You get 28 days for most physical goods.
Re: They're a bit OTT
Strangely enough, i can guarantee thats what going to happen to mine because of this:
Placed 5 feet away on a remote switch so i can activate and de-activate at my whim...
Told em no, now i'll enforce MY choice to not have one.
Re: not a Delivery?
The iBarrow is simply there to carry away the flood of tears the sane, non fanbois have cried out of their ducts with laughter at the sad, sad, iBastards...

" But I don’t agree with them. We don’t look at any other crimes and say 'It’s such a big problem that it’s not worth bothering with'. We wouldn’t stand idly by if paintings worth hundreds of millions of pounds were being stolen from the National Gallery".
Meanwhile, there is talk of crimes like burglary and other likewise offences being treated as "non serious" and essentially de-criminialised.
So, once again, the paymasters decide WHO or WHAT gets treated as a criminal / offence.
Frankly, i car more about my car/house being robbed than some fucking 500 year old painting or some auraul excrement CD from "Nobodys INC et-al" being plastered all over the pirate bay...
Re: I just use...
"Verified By Visa" another pandoras box
It doesn't differentiate between upper and lower case.
So if you use Tz123456Q, it will ask for 3 characters, and it doesnt matter if you input tZq for the requested digits, it will still work, its a sack of shit designed so the banks can pass on blame to you for "fraudulent" use.
"But you enrolled on VBV, you MUST have given them access to your account. No compensation for you, me laddo"....
Should have spoken to ebay

Re: One password to rule them all
Tesco's own brand marmite was subject to a recall a year or two ago as it contained something which "caused skin sensitisation" in "susceptible" people,
What they fuck they added to salt and yeast shit to cause urticaria I dread to think.
Ensured I only ever bough Marmite after that...
Did romans create nano particles???
Let the fool spout off his ill informed rhetoric.
In the meantime, i will continue to circumvent the "blocks", i will continue to pilfer music and films and software. In fact anything i can. Most of which is deleted 24 hours later when the dawning realisation of how utterly shit most of the music and tv/films are these days.
The occasional gem (breaking bad) is worthy of my hard earned £££.
The occasional bit of code (keyscrambler) is worthy of my £££.
Thats the key, if something is worthwhile, most people will purchase it. If not, its downloaded, watched, scorned and then deleted.

Re: First post where i said it WILL happen and it did...
In what way is it "not quite true".
In the same way as your vauge statement is "not quite accurate".
Re: It was inevitable.
What is there about my comprehension you seem to think is lacking??
A set of private keys were recovered, it doesnt matter how, by who or when. The simple fact is they were recovered and that allowed the decryption of probably millions of files.
No doubt a blessed relief to a great many peeps
If they hadn't been recovered we wouldn't be having this conversation.
So, go on SRS, explain, what is it about my comprehension i lack?
There was sod all wrong
Excepts MS's constant need to fuck us users about whilst chanting the old "but WE'RE telling you its better mantra".
YOU might be telling us that MS but the USERS are telling you something completely different and you just don't seem to be able to get it through your ever thickening skull.... Sometimes, change is not good....
You constantly invent ways to push even die hard windows users (me) further and further away from either, A: Legally purchased MS software or B: towards a totally non-MS path...
Keep going....I only have a finite amount of MS love.......
