I think we need to mark this occasion with a serious send-off for Bessie. We are going to light candles and say a little prayer for her. Then fire up the BBQ. Hmmm, lovely steak"....

Would love

to see a proper, polished GUI with the ability to slap in a range of peripherals, ie trackball and buttons, multiway / dual joysticks.. Try playing "Defender" on a keyboard... Tempest is another with a simple but not implemented control. Or proper light guns..

10,000,000

fucking quid we (the tax payer who really doesn't give a shit about the silver haired little fuck-twat) have had to shell out. How many nurses, doctors, houses, other noble causes could we have funded with that amount of money?? Beggars belief. We should just break in, extract the little shit, pay for the damage (how much does a door cost!) and let the Swedes take him...

Makes my shit itch so see such a waste of good money....

Furthermore (whilst my shit is itching) how can I survive, rent a house, drive a decent car and have a nice toy box for 20k a year and that twat is costing 3.3 mill a year!!!!

Re: Photobucket

Wish i could. But i clearly remember the story. Photobucket had admitted to openly passing off users details to anyone who could be bothered to buy them. When i asked photobucket about this i was told in no uncertain terms it was a "privacy" issue and they would not discuss it. My account ended that day.

No it's not the school holidays.

Or not here at least. I'm guessing it is where you are though as most kindergartens lock their computers down to stop the small children from accessing the grown up internet. Which is what you are doing. But from home. In your bedroom. With your One Direction posters and action men.

UK exam board wants kids to be able to Google answers

cornz 1
Silver badge

Hmm...

In principle I don't object to the kiddywinks being able to use a search engine, the issue is will they understand WHAT they are reading. Its all well and good copying something verbatim but not being able to understand it is not a good thing.

Besides, I bet you any money this scenario is common:

"Dad, whats polyunsaturated mean?"

dad, "dunno son, have you googled it?"

So little johhny knows WHAT it is but not WHY it is.

That's my gripe...

When I was at school, we were not allowed to use calcs in maths exams, about a year later, the rules were relaxed so they kiddies could use calcs....

TomTom MyDrive brings satnav syncing to PCs and mobiles

TomTom can go

fuck themselves. Every iteration of their PNDs have come bundled with useless features or half finished features.

Crap like blocking 3rd party POIs, Bluetooth (which is a standard is it not) working with a handful of devices. Unable to install UK maps on a USA bought device.. 3rd party speed cam databases blocked in favour of Tomtoms own, inaccurate and frequently flaky subscription based service.

Knackers to Tomtom.

That's why I swapped to garmin and nokia here/drive.

Both of which trounce Tomtom.

Re: He did not commit the other crime

Can the police not be trained to shoot at his lower leg, AIR, the cop fired about 8 shots. Truly hope all 8 hit their target because one stray bullet is capable of taking out an innocent passer-by...

Its like fucking idiot drivers on the road, they seldom consider the consequences their stupidity will have on others...

Re: He did not commit the other crime

And given he was seen placing the Taser next to the "perp" and then claiming the "perp" stole his Taser and run off with it, did little to help the case. As I recall, it was only the fact that a passer-by was surreptitiously recording the incident that the cop’s testimony could be proved false. Else this would have been a "his word against mine" and AS the perp was black and the cop was white then the fall out could have been a lot worse. One less trigger happy and corrupt, lying, deceitful plod off the street.

I am still so glad we dont routinely arm the UK dibble...
