This is good news...
For the guys that are lucky enough to attend such events in the future, freshly made sandwiches will now be available.
Re: Document your tricksy shit?
"That said, commenting never hurts and yes, it will perhaps prevent the same mistake."
As some wise person once said, "Real programmers don't comment their code. It was hard to write, it should be hard to understand."
Re: Reinventing wheel
"The only real reason for reinventing the wheel is to rip people off.
Skype is only not allowed because it would allow you to phone abroad without getting hit by colossal fees."
Also, as someone who travels extensively, why would I use my mobile abroad, when I can use Skype for free or at a greatly reduced cost when calling landlines/other mobiles?
We wouldn't need yet another messaging service if mobile operators stopped fleecing us for roaming. Surely the actual costs involved can't be anywhere near what we are charged?
Meh. Wouldn't touch it with a feckin' barge pole.
Is an unencrypted Wi-Fi network?
That's most odd...
...I thought all Bittorrent activity was illegal?

...I'm expected to go to this site and enter my email address? I think not. ;)
...is why I use Clamwin - the most unobtrusive AV I have ever used.
... how bad could it be? Facebook (l)users running the country instead of the government, and I use the term 'government' loosely, bit of a misnomer if you ask me. Look on the bright side, we would have some of the best maintained farms in the world.
Not just the last few days...
The service has been diabolical for the last few weeks.
I got my unit way back last July and it was the best 160 quid I'd ever spent. Going from a signal-less area to having a full signal throughout the house was fantastic, I no longer had to stand with my phone pressed against the window to make a call.
Since Vodafone's evidently successful advertising campaign, they have obviously been struggling with their infrastructure - yet another case of a communications company over-selling their available resources.
I hope the issues are resolved soon as when it works it is an excellent service.
...if all physicists are complete wankers with no lives?
At lunchtime today, the Tories promised the UK would be "the first country in Europe to extend superfast 100 mbps broadband across most of the population".
As I previously thought, politicians are all liars. Nothing to see here, move along...
The! whole! exclamation! mark! thing! is! getting! very! old! now!
Is Rik Myslewski...
...a fat bastard? That's the only reason I can possibly think he would make so many references to Woz's weight. The twat doth protest too much... Crawl back in your hole, dickhead, Wozza has done more than you ever will!
...every mobile network or broadband provider in this country. They don't have the resources, but they'll provide you with a service anyway. I can't wait for the BT Broadband style caps on the mobile network - 'If you keep making calls, we'll disconnect you'!
It's an old joke, but...
"If you are fooled by such a site you should report it to www.consumerdirect.gov.uk/"
No, if you are fooled by such a site, then package up your computer and send it back to wherever you bought it. If they ask why you are sending it back, tell them you are too fucking stupid to own a computer!
