Seems we started with hitler and diverged from there, the inverse of Godwin's Law
is there a digit missing from "stretch 92,947,43 linguine"
Sadly, I think I remember that was Tom Champagne.
I'd rather have a prostate exam than a PC World!
Don't tell the French!
WIFI is pronounced whiffy here en francais!
If you live in a city..
Wouldn't you be bombarded from every direction by wifi just walking to your local chippy?
Then you'd have cellular frequencies (and power) on top of that.
Adding a church into the mix can't make a huge difference can it?
(Actually even in the countryside there are lots of signals)
Single point of Failure?
Isn't the internet supposed to be able to survive the odd nuclear blast?
I don't think so.
Most banks charge small business quite a bit to "handle cash"
Also the poor shop keeper has to make sure he doesn't get robbed of it either in the shop or on the way to the bank.
The charges made by credit card companies are excessive too. however debit cards do not get charged in the same way. Businesses pay a flat fee or a few 10's of pence for Debit Cards.
That's cheap when you consider the aggro accepting cash entails.
e-wallets etc should be no different.
I really worry about some people.
Who in their right mind would pay to spend their own money?
It's as if, when faced with a survey, they don't want to appear cheap!
But instead they prove themselves to be idiots instead.
If you use Chrome you can get an addin called super adblock, which blocks the right hand side news feed ticker.
to be sure, I'm not beliveing it either!
Re: Why Bother innovating?
PT Barnum also said "You will never lose money underestimating the intelligence of the general public" which is even more apt. ;-)
not here they wont
yippee! deep in the new forest will be the last place they come.
He thinks our educational system is holding us back in the digital media area?
High Praise indeed!
it was PT Barnum that said "You will never lose money underestimating the intelligence of the general public"
Is it too late to ask for a translation into English?
History Repeats itself?
Looks like Nintendo learned nothing from their last foray into 3D.
aaaghh! My Laptop looks exactly like everyone elses!
It folds in half with a screen on the top bit and a keyboard with exactly the same keys as all the others on it!
What shall I do? will Dell, Lenevo and all the others please change the design!
I know, put the keyboard on the back of the screen? Or on the top bit with the screen underneath!
There are multiple F1 petitions
Search for "Formula One" and you find at least 2
Petition 57 has over 700 names now. 158 only has 170.
does anyone know if the "consolidate" the duplicates? (57 and 158 aren't strictly duplicates)
e-petition at direct.gov now available
Hello, wake up, it's coffee you can smell.
Firstly, to everyone who said "the only thing I watch on BBC is F1" you are lying, so stop it, be honest, add Top Gear & QI, come clean!
Secondly, Mr Ecclestone, is mistaken. Sky only have 10m subscribers and I am 100% sure they won't all watch F1. So BBC and Mr Eccelstone, you are sadly mistaken, viewing figures will fall.
Thirdly, to any BBC managers reading (enjoy your job while you can) you are making a mistake, if you think you aren't then sadly you should resign, because you are clearly in the wrong job!
I live in the New Forest and have zero signal for O2, 3 and barely one for Vodafone.
Yet every time they ask for planning permission to put up a mast they are refused point blank!
So telling ofcom to push won't help with the nimby's around here.
If the operators gave them away!
3 Reasons it'll be a flop in the States
1. If they use English actors they won't understand the words.
2. The 100,000 Orcs battling each other will ruin the film.
3. The Americans don't watch movies where they don't win.
I remember this from Capt Kremin
Is that Hortense over there
No she looks quite relaxed.....
The Voyage of the Space Beagle
The Birthday Campaign
The only people interested in Birthday emails are under 16 or over 80!
Most women over a certain age (and no-one has any idea what that is) deny having birthdays at all, and certainly don't want emails reminding them!
!esaelp erom oN
Nothing to do with their miserable high prices then?
It's because she doesn't like being known as LiLo!
I work in Paris (the one in France) and pretty much the whole Metro network and RER network have mobile phone access in the stations and in most of the tunnels.
I don't think the French authorities see it as a security risk. I have no idea who paid for it, but I imagine that the mobile companies make a tidy bob or two.
re Exactly what I thought
I am pretty sure its because there are not many films where the hero get a BJ as a distraction. That's the only reason I remember the film anyway ;-)
Meet the Parents: Little Fockers
How many plods on the beat would that buy?
Seriously, I would be interesting in knowing?
sad sad day
When they think people will pay to read the Telegraph online
The only way they get people to read it on paper is to give it away if you buy a bottle of water.
There is no point charging for anything on the net as someone will always be offering the same thing free.
Good luck to them
Throat I understand, but ear and nose? That's going too far!
Is he any good then?
I think our openers did a good job in the last Test, so I fail to see why the ICC would want Dubya?
What you want is Canadian Bacon Clock!
RE: RE: Wait Wat?
That sadly reminded me of hearing some schoolkids a few years ago, shouting "Scopey" across the playground.......
plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose......
The post is required, and must contain letters.
There, fixed it for them......
If he lives in England, he is 175.3cm tall and weighs 83.6kg
If he lives in England, he is just over 5'9" tall and weighs 13st 2lb 5oz
I find I get very aggrevated when I see anyone dressed like that!
It seems to me...
that the "seller" missed a trick here.
He could easily have got a £300 quid lappy from a supermarket and legitimately sold it for 600+ and earned a nice little profit.
Then told his "buyer" to recommend him to his other equally dim friends.
All legal and above board and very profitable!
Rather amusingly, or tragically depending on which way you look at it...
but when I 'voted' it put my 'village' in the middle of the Bristol Channel, approximately 90 miles northwest of where it actually is in the New Forest, but a lot closer to Cornwall than I am now, so thats good surely?
Talking of which...
Don't try drowning it either....... that could be expensive!
No you're not!
I agree with your point.
The address is there:
I am sure I am not the first to point out to our oversees reader that the address is present on the website, granted it might not be readily apparent as an address unless you are familiar with UK address formats.

What I don't quite understand...
Why has no newspaper or Which? or the Beeb, or El Reg or someone not actually got hold of one and tested it under laboratory conditions?
Surely that would prove it once and for all?
I went into a couple of phone shops on Saturday to try it out and no matter how I held it it just would not play ball. This was unfortunate as I was trying to convince my wife that she really would be better of without one.
Is that a 49-37 or a 49-38?
No wait a 49-37 is carrying an unlicensed aardvark in your knapsack.
