Re: Think again
But James Dyson is an arse who moved all his manufacturing out of the UK to reduce the price of his goods, except they are still vastly overpriced. The increase is in the size of his profits.
Re: UK's thirst for energy falls, yet prices rise: Now why is that?
He also forgot that as demand falls, less raw material needs to be purchased, thus reducing that expenditure. Plus the price for said raw material is actually falling as demand falls, so why the price rise?
Management speak is why use one normal word when you can use a rare concoction of meaningless drivel which only appeals to other managers.
Re: Reminds me ..
Among the many pearls of wisdom from Chris Morris.. a true genius
Sky broadband is pants
Well it is in my area, they keep managing my line, squeezing the bandwidth to accommodate more subscribers and my service gets worse and worse, I am complaining to the so and so's every couple of months and they keep telling me it is a problem with my set up. Not true, it hasn't changed ever. Currently undergoing another session of re-profiling with Sky. Only two more months of the cheap deal and then they can pish off!!
Is the truth and finance mutually exclusive. The financial genius's in Government at present are still peddling the lie that the UK's deficit was unsustainable to allow them to make their savage cuts. The reality is, the UK Government budget deficit under Labour fell as a percentage of GDP by FOUR percentage points from 1997 to 2008. It was only the Banking sector's greed which caused it to rise subsequently through QE.

Arse face strikes again, more crap than you can shake a stick at. It's about as secure as a Government laptop.

Or how to improve your sexual performance, enlarge your penis and god forbid, help you with all those PPI claims.
Re: On the other hand
MS surface running Windows 8 is an Apple marketing ploy...contrast an compare, then dump MS offfering in nearest recycling bin
And Google (You Pube) never attempt to copyright grab material do they?
or how about Bombay Penguin, I know, they haven't found a Penguin fish to curry, yet.
Re: Background app
I'm glad you spotted the quote marks...The music I download is only stuff I bought on vinyl many years ago and I cannot be bothered with converting it myself.
Re: I am probably going to be downvoted for this but...
I downvoted just for the hell of it....To be honest, I wouldn't let plod anywhere near anything more technical than their own 'walkie talkie' device (ie mobile phone).
I expect any serious crim will now be beaver away at developing an app that wipes said smartphone as soon as it is plugged into unrecognised computer or other device. Well that's what I'd do if I were criminally inclinedm which I'm not (apart from regularly downloading 'Linux' distros).
Those nice people kindly cache all the Pirate Bay pages so you can still access it.
Re: Why is Blackpool council wasting it's money send delegates to Infosec?
As someone who also has the misfortune of living on the Fylde coast, I fully understand where you're coming from. Thanks to BBC's 'supertrams', my journey time to Blackpool has drastically increased as so many traffic lights have been put in to allow these commuter trams to run at full speed (except when they come off the track because of sand).
What I do take exception to is you wondering what he is doing at a conference. Probably his job. Most of the wasteful spending you have described was signed off on by the previous administration and the current encumbents have been left with all the mess. You should considr yourself very lucky to live in Blackppol, it could be worse, you could come under Wyre Borough Council who take all the money out of where I live ( Rossall and Fleetwood) and spent in the heartland of their traditional voters (Poulton and Over Wyre).
Will probably tell everyone to stockpile gigabytes due to a forthcoming strike by silicon miners. That's just about how much he knows about everything
Re: Real humour
But those American Shows you quote were a very long time ago and are the exceptions. Generally speaking, they do like to flog a dead horse.
ps: I did love the Phil Silvers Show.
Two of the best comedy series ever, ran to a massive 12 episodes each across two series.
I'm talking about Fawlty Towers and the Young Ones.
There is much more
Brass Eye: Six episodes
The Day Today: One series
The Fast Show: Three series
I can go on, but the one thing noticeable is they are all British. The trouble with Merkin shows is while they might be funny to start with, they have to flog the dead and buried horse, killing any fondness for the original humour.
Re: Hmm . .
Et me brute....Two spam messages from my brother's hotmail account this morning, one sent at 1 in the morning, the other around three hours later, and he was definitely asleep
Who'd have thunk it
Microsoft Word, buggy pile of [insert favourite expletive here], has an unpatched exploit dating back to 2009. Some might even suggest it is deliberate.
They are in 100 per cent of UK dwellings if the survey of my house is anything to go by...in fact, every house has at least eight. (Mac Pro, eMac, Power PC (original 6000), iPhone and four iPods). Market must be saturated now.
Re: All in it together
Huge jump in personal allowance is from 2013 not next month and, of course, not forgetting the slashing of corporation tax and the reduction in the top rate of income tax to 45p in the pound above £150k.
All in it together
Except more are more in it than others. If we all had private trust funds providing us with an income in excess of £1million a year, like certain chancellors, then the budget would make sense. The harsh reality for 99 per cent of the country is we pay, they get fat.

F*ck Yea....Team America strikes again.
Used to be a very big brewer in Birmingham, made a decent beer, unlike Ansells, which came second in a beer contest to Severn Trent.
And regarding 02, my son has to come out of his bedroom to get any signal for his iPhone..ludicrous.
Standard planetary joke
But can see Uranus?
Re: Does any intelligent person see jobs as a God/Guru?
No they don't, but they might see you as an imbecile. Quick Time for one.
The ever-unreliable Renault (or is it Peugeot) turbo....will probably blow up in not time at all.
Re: How quaint
Scotch tape is also a TM...would have been much better saying sticky tape in the style of Blue Peter.
From the verb - 'Turdspurt'

gently across the moat, meh,meh, meh, meh, meh,meh, meh, meh, merrilly merrily, hope it stays afloat!!
In that case, there should be a FF8, followed by FF13.
Don't these people bemoaning the lack of creativity realise that the PFY has just stepped out the shower and what passed in the last few years was all a dream?

Hop he's in his gold-lame knickers.
"Let's hope the Russians also plan to check whether their scientists have been taken over by parasitic lifeforms"
We'll only know that is the case if they start talking about bonuses and how hard done by they are.
Dry clean only?
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Looks like they might actually achieve turning manure into gold...well lining Suckerbug's pockets anyway.
Being pedantic, no you can't
They only quote percentages.. 55% is greater than 50% when the total is equal, but 55% of 100 users is less than 50% of 1,000.
All data is ours
The other evil empire gets more evil.
For our merkin cousins, love the Roger Melly 'Profanisaurus' quote.
With more delta V in the direction you are travelling, you get acceleration, more delta V in the opposite direction provides deceleration. Have none of you ever resolved forces?
So when is the computing dinosaur going to do the decent thing and go the way of Kodak?
Like the police?
Usually on their way to the nearest takeaway. Well it is an emergency.
That's why I've upvoted you Graham....Would have given two thumbs up if you'd mentioned "The Creeping Terror" as well.
And so can paper
With important stuff, double or even triple redundancy should be the minimum requirement.
No need for mitigation
Just cover you car in oil and nothing will stick.
