So can I sue the blood-sucking ambulance chasers they set on me
after they tried to bill me for services after I had left?
As taught to me by my Grandmother
Two beans and a bean; a bean and a half; and half a bean
Holy CRT Batman!
I've got 1 fake out of 1 attempt so far.
Or do you really think my name is Aaron Aardvark?
Barry Biscuit. (next months ID)
Turn your Ipad into a laptop
And have two batteries to worry about.
While on the subject of worries: padding usually makes a good thermal insulator as does the glass screen. How does the heat from inside the iPad get out? Did you check the temperature is gets too when playing video / minting bitcoins?
It is rocket science
The R in DARPA stands for research, that means things won't be predictable. This is how we make progress or are we all so old we have forgotten that we had to learn what we know.
I'd prefer NFC outside my phone.
Why does this have to be in a phone or use the phone network. I'd like a little tag on my keyring that works when I've driven to a cream-tea shop in Cornwall with no mobile coverage.
Out of the two things that you always take when going out, which one always works? Your keys or your phone?
Is this ironic?
All these cloud service providers felled by something that came out of a cloud?
I find that with the right website I only ever need to 20 seconds of one handed holding.
Is this a bad thing?
So you've left your machine connected to the internet and some use is made of it to benefit someone. Sounds just like SETI but without the hassle of installing it. If you actually need the CPU cycles you will notice it and remove it surely?
Those are my bollox!
I claim copyright even though they are scaled down by about 50%.
I guess the leave the unsintered powder around to support the layer above.
Otherwise this would only be good for making pyramids and bricks.
Twitter should talk to someone in Italy
I'm sure the t.it domain is available.
And this month Mathew, my real name is Aaron Aardavrk
Yes it really is, well at least it was when I cleared out my Google cookies and set up a new account. Since then my real name has reverted back to what it was before. Next month I think I'll be Barry Bignob for a few minutes.
Here in the UK your real name is what you chose it to be and you don't have to go through any hoops for it to be so. It may be illegal to drive if you don't update your driving license, and you should inform the taxman etc but you can call yourself anything you want at any moment.
Please do Chuckie Egg
Or tell me where to get hold of it again.
So now it's OK to drink (coffee) and drive.
And by the looks of the video it's OK to stare out of the side windows while driving around busy urban streets. And that's some serious smearing when the wipers operate, pretty bad for a new car.
Please Ofcom mandate some signalling around breaks
I don't care how you do it (mpeg stream meta-data, blank video frames, beeps, subtitles). Then I can program MythTV to cut them all out.
Left handed eh?
That explains a lot.
I just don't trust this bloke
Can't put my finger on it, prolly the backstory, but he just comes across as a motormouth more suited to a car showroom.
In the interests of inclusivity
they should rename the dog "Cunt", then we can all be offended.
ACS:Law was fined £200,000 but it was reduced to £1,000 because it had ceased trading. Yet here we find Andrew Crossley has a house worth £700,000 and he had gone bankrupt. I would have thought he could sell the house to pay the fine and still have £500,000.
You're moving half a ton of metal silently, you'd better make sure you can stop or they notice you somehow.
"That word is way out in front"
Doesn't know his biology - way out in front is cock
Wooton Dusset ???!!!?!?!?!!?
Come on if you're going to make up English village names at least make them suggestive.
My darling daughter has figured this keyboard out and all I have now is four giant keys: P, O, N and I. They cover everything including the "arrange" button and I can't get it back.
Posted from my Iphone.
I used to be a VIA fan
back in the days when they were the only way to get a fanless system to play MPEG2 but they have dropped the ball too many times for me to like them anymore:
* Rubbish opensource support.
* Vapourware announcements .
* Slow IA32 exection.
And now I'm using an ASUS AT3IONT-I to drive my TV, it does H.264 at 1080p60 with real de-interlacing.
So this is 23% better power? - not if you can't buy it yet.
Sounds like junk
If you think that UI is razor sharp you must be a beardy. Transparency is bollocks as your screen grab shows, even the huge word "Thor" is hard to read and the visible bits of people confuse the UI. Making 2D into 3D on the fly is just stupid as your review shows, So it's a blu ray player - so what?
That's not four wheel drive
Good luck trying to get out of a muddy field.
And there was me thinking about buying one
Seriously late adopter, but we just borrowed one for Wii fit after an ankle injury and will buy one when the lenders return. Now we'll wait.
RTFA you nutters
It's just using the DIMM socket for power and mechanical mounting. Nice if you are tight on space and have spare DIMM slots.
"used to be part of the landscape"
"It was like somebody chopped it up into little pieces and just flung it everywhere,"
Surely that means it is still part of the landscape?
Don't forget the water regulations
The picture on the first page shows that the shower head will now hang a couple of inches lower. If the shower had been fitted correctly it would not be possible for the head to end up in water and now it can.
You should also add the cost of getting it fitted by a plumber as well, probably greater than the cost of batteries over the lifetime of a normal radio (environmentally and fiscal).
One more thing, you should add some sort of strain relief on the hose side if you want it to last.
A few improvements
Ditch the accelerometers and use the capacitive sensor to measure area coverage, they're wipe clean aren't they? Could do with a nice picture of Natalie Imbruglio for encouragement. Will it run on an iPad?
The next gen phones with force measurement could also give you a report on your jiz momentum.
£50k paid by the wrong-doer
If you're 100% certain of winning you don't need to worry about the legal fees. This was one of those cases. The libeler should have settled.
Plenty of runways are over 400' long. This thing should be able to take off going across rather than along.
I really am a Jedi
No, really I am but what can I do? I get lumped in with hundreds of pasty wimps that don't represent my views at all. I think I'll tick Jew since it contains some similar letters and circumcision hurts like having a mishap with a light sabre.
Would rather have HD.
I rarely watch TV with my eyes horizontal so I don't want 3D, I would rather use the bandwidth to have more channels in HD.
Surely they already have your bank details, phone number, address and email or have I missed the launch of a new PAYG ADSL service?
Even dial-up only works on a paid for phone line and kids can't rent them either.
Linus not giving to charity
OK so maybe no money, but he's given away everything he's ever written to everyone. He's probably the reason that Microsoft has cut the prices it charges to poor nations for its software. I think that counts as helping the world. BillG has given away 100% of his output? I don't think so.
"I wonder if they conduct tours?"
Tours of what? I doubt there would be room for you and a guide. It's not going to be Wookey Hole.
You're 1.96m tall and 120kg, you are confronted by a herd of 1.5m tall and high teenagers. I suggest you pick one up and dangle it over the edge, that should calm the others down. If it doesn't simply drop the first one and move on to the next.
You know you're delaing with a really cross idiot
When they end a sentence with ". Period. Full stop." unless that's Microsoft's dodgy internationalization software at work.
What's your problem? The guy in the thong or the horrible choice of tartan.
I laugh at your puny attempts to defy me
and then reach for the right sized flat-blade and small hammer.
Yes I do, and it works. Most screws are soft enough that you can wedge a sharp blade in and then undo and replace with something nicer.
This is what you get from style boutiques
All your logos are belong to the swirl. And they all look alike and have nothing to do with your company. If SonyEricsson's logo was an imaginative blend of S and E this would not have happened and it might be more recognized.
Surely all those 30000 people are on the database and so their name and address have been verified. Just post a cheque for £30 to each one. job done for less than £1m
WW means world wide
There's a difference between the internet and the www. the world wide web is the killer app that made the internet popular. I'm sure these platform specific closed apps look attractive to media publishing companies because they enable more control than the www but they also lack the world-wide aspect.
What next? Some bright spark comes up with cross platform apps?
Getting in was easy
It simply pressed the cdrom button, jumped on board and went for a ride.
Once inside it realized it had forgotten the USB to serial port adapter so it couldn't log in with it's smartphone.
Once it had finished eating all the bugs and spiders inside it croaked.
How is this going to hurt Simon Cowell?
The X-factor single won't sell any less, the customers are completely separate. Who knows? the X-factor single may sell even more since the fans might be annoyed at the annoyed-at-X-Factor brigade.
Mind you it's probably going to be the best work from Billy Brag and Pete Doherty ever!
Freeview and Freesat on channels 108 and 50, respectively!!!
I hope their upscaler is not the same as ITV's. My TV does a better job of suppressing the deinterlacing artefacts than theirs.
Can't wait for Strictly in HD, SD Freeview does very badly when the camera whizzes at the same time as the lighting is going mad.
