Re: Dish was like Indiana Jones
So he had to sit and watch the adverts while recording the program. Probably got good because he had to pay attention.
I've seen the same on UK motorway signs
Except ours was a very English hack, something like:
"Pick up your litter, others do"
Maybe too subtle to be noticed.
Why wait? They can't really complain if you steal it.
Easy solution to the noon power 6pm demand
Just put the solar plant 6 hours west and run a cable.
Is that typo really in the trademark application?
> and a oblong table
Is it OK to have an oblong table? or even rectangular?
> ... does not mean this planet is ours to do with what we wish
OK, so who does the planet belong to and where are they? Oh, that's right - no-one and nowhere to be seen.
Unless you believe in God, in which case it is ours (at least according to the Bible). and so are the animals.
Good luck with your neck muscles.
Wonder what he does
I'd guess BT Broadband customer support. Well. you wouldn't want to run that on the BT network would you.
Remember people: A bow tie is a cry for help.
Just like orange hair.
Please lose the sepia
There were lots of bright and cheery colours in the Victorian age, we're just left with sepia prints because that is what the majority of surviving media consists of. Go the a museum and look at the fabrics. And all that lovely mahogany.
May have a point
It shows there is some code in there to handle errors that should never happen. How did Microsoft test that code? Are there any bugs in it? Even if you assume the code identical to and fully tested on other platforms it shows there is unreachable code that make your ROM bigger than it need be i.e. more expensive, slower and more power hungry (more cache misses).
Old shool website design
OK so the graphics are cheesy, but it doesn't half load fast.
Why use wireless at all?
It's not like they don't own the land the rails run on, Just lay cable.
But now you can use the source code to see how to drive the cool stuff.
Do you really want to be able to change the GPU firmware? How are you going to test your changes? Do you know how much Cadence simulator licences cost? Have you got a thousand core simulator farm?
I'm not having a go but the contents of the firmware are in a file to save having to include non-volatile storage in the chip and to allow shipping the chip before all the firmware bugs are fixed.
Why not just say "Fuck off I'm busy" to them, it works wonders for me. I rarely have to say it twice.
"mindful, shared consumption of resources and a clear and unwavering focus on sustainability"
She does realize she will be getting there on a rocket presumably?
Re: How did he end up being a candidate for the jury?
And, that most people still working in that area who haven't made enough money to leave or get excused from jury service probably feel they have been screwed by one or more large corporations.
Lets have more gratuitous sexism.
I like my men like I like my coffee -- thick and rich.
Re: Erm, like, who cares???
> By facebooking them, I have a permanent, searchable record of our interactions
How permanent is your facebook page?
You really should have finished fiddling with it before you replaced the regular media centre.
Re: Do you find...
Would you eat a frog? Me neither, nor the cat.
Even better idea
Insist on cruise control being installed in every car then the car in front will be much less likely to randomly change speed.
Round tables are TM King Arthur. The patent expired a while ago.
As Stephen Fry might say
Porcelain.. Culture... ooooooooh
Intel et al in Eire
Tell you what why don't you put your corporation tax rates up to the EU average and close some of those tax loopholes? No need for fines.
Re: Door stickers are bad
Unusual street you have there. I would have though that next door was 46. We're all odd down our little track and the even numbers are missing.
Re: Having fun
Stairs are more fun??? You need to get out more. Try a restaurant.
Reminds me of the Visa commercial
*) Providing leaks to make Julian famous - almost free
*) Arranging parties and groupies - £1000's
*) Bail for Julian - £200,000
*) Gettng Julian to hide in Equador forever - priceless
Re: No photos in the canteen
I like those lolies. It's the only thing on there I'd eat without being drunk.
Lady GooGoo and Dustbin Beaver
If they can't recognize the value of free advertising and brand awareness they deserve to be removed from the site. Simon Growl is still in there.
What the difference between "gift" and "give"?
Really, I would like to know what you think the difference is.
Now I can ignore any channel that isn't three digits starting with 1.
Re: It wouldn't matter..
An not forgetting MythTV that has a web interface so you can type in the numbers. And if you're really hard you can edit the MySQL database by hand (with a chisel).
Re: It wouldn't matter..
My Sony Bravia lets me swap channels around so I now have BBC One HD at channel 1 etc
So the building must contain something you can steal
Presumably credit card details not encrypted.
No complaints from me
Because I prefer to have the biggest media producer to be non-commercial. I don't want to have a bigger version of Sky thanks. Yes, I am middle class, so are most people.
"If I’m ever in the neighbourhood I’ll stop in for a drink."
Please do, preferably late on a Friday night. Also please announce who you are and what you tried to do/
I am so confused
I though you had to be 18 to own a credit card. That advert is clearly aimed at five year olds.
Just leave Barbie alone OK
I can usually tell the temperature in a photo
just by looking at it. Clues like the amount of clothing being worn, sunshine, flowers, snow, rain, barbecues, the list is endless. If it's indoors, it's probably 18-20°C.
I'm offended by the architecture
Good grief! If the world just had more curtains this sort of thing would not happen.
Re: The main safety function is a distance-to-the-car-head warning.
I would be more worried about a lorry behind me than in front. Their tyres are made of harder rubber so you will be able to stop faster than they can.
Re: Isn't the point of an indicator light...
Agreed. Please can someone mandate separate orange indicators front and back. Some front indicators are invisible due to being made of an orange bulb with a clear plastic lens. In bright sunshine the amount of light bounced back from the reflector swamps out the lamp.
Same goes for rear-light clusters where the massive braking lamp power makes the tiny segment of orange cleverly hidden in the middle invisible.
It's redundant, you just need to say spins.
I just registered TM on iSlab
Just in case Apple decide to not settle.
White text on a black background
I've really missed that since moving from X10 to CDE! It's great for desktop use in an indoor environment with controlled lighting. On a phone that you use outside (if you're a normal human) it's a bit of a disaster. Still I guess you're not meant to use this phone, just be seen with it.
that 17" display is not shielded. It also looks like a glossy one too - even worse with reflections.
Why do people buy second class shares?
Serious question and I probably own a few via pension funds. It just seems like buying non-voting shares is like buying hope.
1970 called, it wants it's CLI back
Nice though it is to be able to type the command names in once you know them you will need either menus or toolbars for starters. Either that or a big book for new users to read, or maybe an Ubuntu training course.
I do like CLI for often used programs but I also like being able to start a program the first time and just use it.
As for the interface appearing/disappearing - horrible, same goes for menus changing on context (I don't mind greying out).
