'Graceful' solar flare erupts from surface of Sun – NASA vid

Hot flushes

Those flairy fings prolly explain the hot flushes I get. That last "whoosh" was particularly big 'cos 8½ minutes later I had a hot flush. At least I now know not to trust my GP. Menopause indeed; solar flairs frying me vitals more like!

The mangle of the dangle

I was very careful NOT to tweet (oh dear that's a noun (sorta) becoming a verb far too quickly and without the benefit of 200+ years of Oxford Professors humming and hawing over it.

I put the comments on El Reg, of course, because no self respecting plod would bother to look at it, being a bit erudite and out of their league.

Gotta run now, there's this rather loud knock at my door...

Someone should go in there and mangle them before I do!

Sky confirms UK Online closure

Fizzle
Megaphone

A bit of balance!

Whilst I hate evil megalomaniacal firms as much as the next person, I have to say that there are 3 reasons why I recommend Sky - at least for me.

1. I live in an area of piss-poor TV reception, but with my SKY box I get perfect pictures everytime and a built-in record facility to save faffing around with video etc (yes, I have still got a video).

2. SKY broadband has proven to be ultra-reliable and considtent with good customer support (actually I only used it once and the girl at the other end knew what she was talking about)

3. The SKY + Phone package costs peanuts compared to some

4. The unlimited broadband option IS truly unlimited (handy for those pesky Linux distros)

Yes I know that's 4 but who's counting?

So say what you will about Murdoch - his firm delivers and, without it, I'd be kaboozled!

Just my tuppen'orth.

Comet bomber flyby pics show spaceball belching ancient dry ice

Comet? I think not!

What a load of twaddle! It's stating the bleedin' obvious that those are landing lights coming from a rather dusty spaceship and not a comet at all.

I dunno, blinkin' scientists! What do they know eh?

Is US prudishness ruining the internet?

Paris Hilton

"Proodery"?

Actually I'm more worried about their fundamentalist, religous fanaticism! Wars have been started over this.

Special relationship? Keep it, I'll take my chance with the French - at least we can keep them under control with our archers.

Paris - because, no doubt, her French is exemplary..
