Re: Wow, what a complete waste of CPU cycles.
I'm a bit slow today, I actually got as far as 'creativity' before I realised you were taking the piss! ;)
Wow, what a complete waste of CPU cycles.
That is all.
Re: What's on the screen?
Looks more like someone didn't peel the protective plastic off the screen...
Re: Looks like Qnap interface
Yes, very similar, except that Synology didn't copy QNAP.
Who the fuck...
Wants to watch Russel Brand's latest DVD anyway?
I thought all referees were blind?
I used to run the Sysinternals BSOD screensaver on a Friday afternoon with the mouse and keyboard unplugged. After the fourth consecutive week the IT bod finally rumbled me.
"Indeed, a recent study showed that a whopping 83 per cent of kids had lied about their age on social media..."
In other news, so have most adults at some point.
Like everyone else ..
.. I'd probably have more respect for Stephen if he wasn't such an arrogant prick.
I'll bet he couldn't put a Rowntree's Fruit Pastille in his mouth without chewing.
What did they expect?
Donations for their pension funds?
"We will introduce nationally agreed default..."
Agreed by whom?
"Twitter has managed to restore the features suddenly missing from its website."
Well thank fuck for that, for one moment I thought my life had ended. Oh wait, I don't have a Twatter account.
Joking aside, how is this even remotely 'newsworthy'?
"Bionic Babbage Bear of Borg better beat Baumgartner's breathtaking balloon bound."
Unless it goes horribly wrong, in which case it will be:
"Bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger."
"it’s possible that the fix had actually turned into a bigger problem than the one it was attempting to solve."
Are they talking about Win 8 replacing Win 7?
Do you mean the Win7 SP2 rollout that broke everything?
Re: Not just The Who
"That's not fair, Tenacious D's wasn't the Best Song Ever.
It was just a tribute."
Mate, I would love to buy you a pint or two just for that comment. Brilliant.
That is all.
That'll be a £3.5k brick within 6 months then.
Re: BAN THE DAILY MAIL
"BAN THE DAILY MAIL
it gives you cancer"
Yes, but only to those who read it, I'm safe. ;)
No need to plagarise work using Google once academic year ends
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?
"Dear @Patient3312 don't forget your enema is today lol"
Coffee -> Monitor.
...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'!
