I think there's a different kind of weather down south. Probably spends it's spare downtime mixing mint juleps and listening to Max Monroe...or...err.... Kraftwerk.
Re: We're not all here to export your jobs to India...
... Why don't places like the Cayman Islands or Bermuda have initiatives like this? Microsoft and the likes might have to compete with the Pharmaceutical industry on this front.
Quaequam Blag!!!! Are you sure???
Re: Advantage of IR remotes
I bought the one4all xsight plus during the week. Sadly, I run linux , so I have to set up a dualboot xp just to update it. If bluetooth makes an appearance in remotes , it'll make my investment a very short term one.....good job I kept the receipt.
Is it just me?
.... or am I the first to use the phrase " bunnyboiler " in response to this article? Seems like many people missed the opportunity here!
Re: Have you seen this man?
I remember that one... the old Garda Sicini certainly had egg on their face over THAT one. :-)
Am going all continental.
Bacon sarnies and Jumbo bacon rolls (Yum!) are all very well, just a bit parochial....
My favourites would be either the francesinha or the Monte Cristo...
Food for thought?
Start of a new career?
Man vs food tag team? The media hasn't needed much of an excuse in the past.
And all this...
.... at the same time Peter Hamilton releases " Great North Road" ? How will she compete!
Re: How do you...
re: tablet mania
Does "writing notes on the back of a punch card and forgetting where you left it" count as dementia?
also, is there any difference statistically between UNIX/ windows users ? (What's a root password again?)
Re: Way to piss off the Martians/Mysterons -or - Does the RIAA know about this?
.... Remember what happened in "Mars Attacks" ?
Also, could this be the start of chav-like behaviour on another planet? ... It'll be drag-racing of mars rovers and donut-burning next!
Can you smoke the tyres in the martian atmosphere?
Make the objectives easier.
short range lan,voip access and email /vpn storage servers in the pubs, long range wlan in the churches(Just stick an ariel on top).At least the politicians might understand this.
... that's morally wrong!
Re: Pretty Sure
Squirrels can make a quacking-like sound too...i've heard 'em!
.... when their plant was originally being built, the first company involved in it's design was an east german company called....Kraftwerk AG !!!!
Re: Unionised Macdonalds members?
Sorry, but even having read the possible explanations, I still have MAJOR problems with this picture.
All I can say is this. I hope that there is a major rethink in the accountability of both parties involved, because this WILL get nasty.
Unionised Macdonalds members?
I definitely think that even the most hard line union could condone this action. And I'm even more shocked the police did not intervene.
Computer assisted eyewear= Disability discrimination.
Physically attempting to remove eyewear= abh/ gbh?
Preventing him and his family enjoying meal. =assault !
Also, what authority did the individual use to eject this man from the restaraunt? If he identified as a macdonalds employee, this could be a case for action against the whole franchise europe-wide.
Personally, I haven't eaten at macdonalds in decades.. a big mac falls below what I or trading standards might insist are basic advertising requirements.
As for the employee, next time he might not be so lucky. CS gas is readily available on the continent. (or is capiscum spray more appropriate?)
so, now what?
What possible use can we put to a multi billion pound cyclotron -particle beam producing structure?
hmm... the paintwork does remind none of leather chaps..
Re: Westworld?... Any one remember the New Avengers?
Copy /paste from imdb.with adlib.
Plot Summary for
"The New Avengers" Complex (1977)
The New Avengers fly to Toronto, Canada to learn the identity of KGB assassin X-41, aka Scapina. Unfortunately all their contacts end up dead before they are able to spill the beans. Also, Gambit keeps getting arrested by the Canadian police and Purdey finds herself trapped in a ultra modern building........whick KILLS! .
Is that the RSPB down next to KFC?
....also, is WWF the one with the wrestling Pamnda?
Assuming it's not buried underground, this would sound EEvil in the rain!
Re: (The) Incredible(s)!
I would have said David Braben .
It's just down the road from the Overlook Hotel ..
.......All work and no play makes jack a dull boy!
This used to be called "ringfencing"
. and I bet they found out if segregating family friendly from unfiltered cost too much , so they lumbered it on everyone, just in the same way ,as a single person, my council tax is sending some young chavs to school.I should send a strongly worded email to the daily fail.
schweinebraten and russ roulade...nom!
"Unless you are an MS shareholder because your monopoly fuelled gravy-train may just be beginning to run out of steam."
Personally, I hope this kind of thing dosen't catch on, as i've kitted myself out a lot on the back of IT depts 3 year cycles.
Now if Linux natively supported ZFS.... i'd definitely pay for that!!
Re: why not have a second "under duress" pin code
you can.... in the uk, and possibly elsewhere, if you key in your code backwards, you still get the money, but it flags up a distress message for the security team at the bank.
Got my coat... now wheres my pants and wallet.!!!
... has only one kernel/engine, and better security......runs on diesel also.
End of an era, maybe....
Still have a copy of the Childrens Encyclopedia at my mums house (Arthur Mee)
I used to love the way it describes airships , biplanes, the "great war" (no mention of WW2) and the importance of the league of nations.
Encyclopedia Britannica may be right (wrt their business plan) in how they're proceeding....but just note a minute... who did I reference in this comment?
Filesystem for this box is probably ZFS.....which means.....any guesses on OS?
If i'm going to retire to the country one day, I'll have to give up P2P.....
Better fill up some more disks then!
ICON A5 can't dock with my coriolis space station!
they want something more like a star trek tricorder that dosent involve pretreatment of the scene with ethidium bromide or something
