Re: The BBC is really starting to piss me off.
They changed to a new satellite recently, and guess what? I can't get BBC any more here in Bavaria. Nor ITV, Channel 4 and a whole collection of other channels.
Re: @Stanene Inside
Quoth John Brown: "If we make a Klein bottle out of this stuff and apply a voltage would it turn the universe inside out?"
Some would argue that this has already happened.
And there I was thinking that robots.txt was just a Project Gutenberg e-text of a collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov.
Re: Forget NASA, what about the NSA?
Forget NASA? How can I forget NASA? I'm already missing my APOD

I didn't hear them complaining when extensions to copyright laws were being enacted by means of Statutory Instruments.
6 Acts of Parliament and 120 Statutory Instruments.
They finally worked it out.
So they finally worked out that Azure is a word that many people will associate with blue skies.
Not a cloud in sight.
Mine's the raincoat with the telescopic umbrella in the pocket. Not that I'll need it with Microsoft clouds.
Same old ...
And it's just as useless as all the other flight search engines. What I'd really like to see is a search for flights from/to a particular area, country or state.
Example: I live in Germany and want to fly to the UK. I might consider MUC, NUE, FRA or maybe another German airport for departure and one of several UK airports as destination, depending on price, availability, convenience etc. With ALL the current search engines I have to ask for each pair individually, which is very time-consuming. Yeah, I know Germany and UK aren't supported at the mo, but the engine still only accepts specific start and destination airports.
Oddly, there are specific entries for "all airports" for some cities, but no way to select all airports that are "near" a given location.
Dear Mr. LulzSec, while you're about it, please could you get the data for the other censuses from 1841 onwards. A lot of amateur genealogists would be very interested.
Mine's the coat-of-arms ...

Didn't you see the special report: "Which? Suppository"
What? No SDHC slot?
What use is a media player without a card slot for my media?
Re "in whole or in part"
Mr. Jobs appears to demand that developers use one of their trademarks "in part". APP is part of APPLE after all
Re: Incontinence pads
Perhaps that's what the "i" in "iPad" stands for.
AM I missing something?
Why is everyone banging on (only) about the right to privacy and data protection? Whatever happened to presumption of innocence, a fair trial and the right to confront one's accusers?
Give me a trial by a jury of my peers - and don't forget this is a peer-to-peer network (*groan*)
Azure? Not a cloud in sight...
"Azure" is the colour often associated with a cloudless sky. Strange that MS should decide to use it to describe their "cloud-computing" offering.
Or is it another round from the MS-Footgun (TM)?
