Re: Cheese and tomato sandwich

I would predict a sudden spate of people with small blisters near the lower lip and chin area.

Yeah, I've taken that kind of woman home after a skinful too.

Do you use Hola VPN? You could be part of a DDoS, content theft – or worse

Coffee --> Screen

People sign up for a free VPN service in Israel and expect a secure service? Humanity is doomed.

BBC peddling malware?

This simply can't be true, IT "expert" Rory Cellan-Jones would be all over it if this were really the case. Shame on you for suggesting such a thing, El Reg. ;)

Soon your car won't let you drink. But it won't care if you're on the phone

Calibration?

I have no idea how often the intoximeters at the local cop shop need calibrating, but I suspect it's fairly regularly. Who picks up the tab for the calibration of these units? I'm guessing it won't be those that have your (and other people's) welfare at heart, yet more expense for the motorist.

"someone who lives in the shadow of their former glories"

So, pretty much every boss I've ever had, except that their "former glories" usually total a big, fat zero.

Google DOG WHISTLING fails to send URLs across the room

Re: Full circle?

The really sad thing was that, if you played any particular game often enough, you knew when the loading had failed without looking at the screen.

The negotiation tones of my old USR 56k modem still haunt me to this day.

So that's what it was designed for. I thought it was just to turn anyone using it into a self-righteous cunt.

Apple Watch fanbois suffer PAINFUL RASH after sweaty wristjob action

Pete65

I bought a honey-glazed rack of ribs from the supermarket not long ago, in big letters on the back (yes, you guessed it) - "Warning, may contain bones." You don't fucking say, it'd be a piss poor rack of ribs if it didn't.

As a wise man once said, "I'm not suggesting we kill all stupid people, just take the warning labels off stuff and let Darwin get to work."

Re: For anyone who cares....

Me again. Thanks for reminding me about userContent.css - a quick fiddle removes the whitespace either side of the main div.

@-moz-document domain(theregister.co.uk) {

body {

background-color:#aaa;

}

}

It's a bit rough I know, but at least my eyes have stopped bleeding! As you say though - this really shouldn't be necessary.

Re: For anyone who cares....

And a couple of Adblock Edge custom filters:

theregister.co.uk###top_tease will get shot of that hideously large image and link on the front page.

theregister.co.uk##.article_img will remove the image you mentioned at the top of each article.

This makes for a huge improvement in my humble opinion, still a shame about all the white!

Seriously?

What happened to the dev site where you could have taken feedback before this was rolled out? I won't delete my bookmark just yet, I'll come back next week and see if you've bowed to public opinion and reverted to the old (preferred) layout.

DOUBLE BONK: Fanbois catch Apple Pay picking pockets

Re: because apple

You still have to have a card to use applepay, but instead using the plastic card you register the number with apple.

What could possibly go wrong there?

Doctor Who becomes an illogical, unscientific, silly soap opera in Kill The Moon

I'm just waiting.

For him to go off on a rant ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYOlBsls-C0

It would certainly make Doctor Who more interesting, especially when he meets some random alien and utters such gems as, "I will tear your fucking skin off!"
