Nice. You can keep your Firefoxes and Chromes and Safaris - I'll take Opera please. Keep up the good work

Unremarkable post that veered near a point with one exception - Alan Sugar? Pioneer? Shume Mishtake Shurley?
Brilliant. SImply brilliant!
Have one on me!
Very. A lot of lobbyists are paying the EmmPeas an awful lot of money so they can feel important.
Oh and also trying to manipulate debates in favour of rather questionable agendas.
E-petitions are worth as much as the current raft of elected clowns. Maybe if you pony up some cash so they can junket/spend on a second house/buy luxuries, then they'd spend time debating it for you
E-Petitions? Government spin and flannel more like.
"Here, lets give the plebs a distraction. E-petitions! Tell them that if any petitions get over 100,000 signatures <chuckle> we'll debate them."
Didn't they try to do this with XP? It races to the desktop, then thrashes the hard drive as it tries to load all the services for you...
Don't do it!
Also, Oi! Bugger off calling us anti social.
So speaketh the great residents of Oceania. Just watch out for those rocket bombs...
They could do a variation on the Clash's "London's Burning"...
"political masters"? I'd prefer the term incompetent idiots.
I'll drink to that!
Here's one from me
This makes me feel better...
About the upcoming Thief 4 which Square Enix are also working on.
I only have two. I have a huge case of monitor-envy
But my god, did it make me feel ill. Didn't stop me completing it though!
Assume fetal position ... Now!
All I can say is Ouch
"watching the Boss crap his strides rather than be seen dropping a grogan in a glass-wall lift, it was all over too soon."
I need a new Keyboard please!
Sorry to see you go
But enjoy your new job. Have a drink on me
Upvote for you
Though I do have to mention Daggerfall. Not a pinacle in the same vein as Baldur's Gate, but a real enjoyable (though extremely buggy) game that kept me hooked through the mid 90's!
Same here, spent all of last night remove crapware from a machine. Though in dealing with these arseholes, I'd want to use a "customised" cattleprod, some old rolled carpet and black bin bags.
Careful who you challenge (not me it should be noted) otherwise you may be inundated with filthy posts using imaginative expletives put together by filthy minded gits who love a challenge!
Ach, is this joker still about?
He's like a very ineffectual Davros, trundling around with RFID chips and other peripherals stapled to himself.
There's merit in the saying
Don't put all your eggs in one basket...
Thy name is sony.
Request a new sony icon to represent crap security.
I'm with you there. I dual-boot XP and Kubuntu and tried to use wine. For every game I tried to run it was like pulling teeth. "Need this addon", "Change this setting", "Recompile that line". Bloody thing, I just want to play the game and not get into a wrestling match with the OS!.
To be fair, the wine devs have done a sterling job in getting a huge swathe of games to run. The problem lies with the game devs and publishers all writing natively for Windows, so we're stuck with having to use wine or similar. There was a little hope when the rumour about steam natively coming to linux was circulating, but that was soon squished. I suspect that backhanders and MS influence keeps the game devs locked to one platform. Ah well, we can still hope.
Where's the Lindsey Lohan angle?
@ Chad H.
"Scientology representative"? Surely you mean brainwasher?
Is that it?
Pah. Am thoroughly disappointed. Reminds me of that scene from Hypderdrive. Face our beam of death. Hold still, this will take 10 years to kill you!
April fool or not
This made me chuckle!
Pass the spliff
That font is, like, heavy man.
Who knows, with the thing cranked to full power it could be supposed that it suddenly becomes a giant intergalctic telephone. It'd be typical that the first alien call would be from some alien in betelgeuse wondering if we'd like to increase our singlet bandwidth.
You owe me a new keyboard.
And that is why I don't watch ANY TV news and don't read any papers. The only things I really pay attention to are Private Eye and yourselves.
Bravo Sir! Just bravo!
What more is there to say?
I've always seen it as a place where you go to get your first e-mail account. Very much bobby basic, poor UI, spam central and when you receive an @hotmail e-mail, you can't help but snobbishly mutter "bloody amateur"!
I thing we're being trolled
I with you there
I was about to post that. What's going on? Is El Reg angling for some kind of tabloid award or have you decided to venture into the realms of sensationalism?
I fear taking the lids of peoples machines for fear of what you might find. Dessicated spiders, assorted dust monsters and other Lovecraftian horrors are always waiting to drive you to the limits of sanity!
I always make a point to give my machine regular cleans, either tackling the lifeform buildup with the hoover or with my handy airbrush, blasting air through the hard to reach places. Last thing I want is for the Lizard Alliance to use my machine as the start of some terrifying dustmonster/machine cyborg killer. Though, how they'd work together with cyber-dysons makes me wonder!
Putting the court case aside for a moment, the problem is the fact that you have to know all about gmail before you send an e-mail to it. To avoid this kind of thing, you'd have to potentially check the T&Cs of every domain you send an e-mail to before you send it. Now, you and I know all about google and their antics, but someone fresh to the world of web and e-mail wouldn't know this.
West Midlands ministry of love...
... I am sure they'll assist with any thought correction.
...to bad rubbish. Never wanted, never needed and thank god it's going.
Couldn't be any worse than his black watch!
Though I seem to remember old Clive did quite well making various devices such as calculators, voltmeters and other such stuff.
So you're driving down a road and Lord Vader is directing you to take the next left. You miss it and instead of the "Do a U-Turn" statement, you are greeted with the chilling "You have failed me for the last time" followed by a tightness in your throat.
They'll tase anything now. I'm just awaiting for the first reports of coppers tasing unruly dogs, cats, horses, etc or the tasing of a child because it was making a racket...
Your last line says it all. I for one have had enough of the churnalism put out by the grauniad and their reprinting of AP, Reuters and other PR press release merchants
Read this link! Obey!
Pay no attention to the greenwash behind the curtains!
10 million points to you sir, for making me laugh with an excellent red dwarf reference!
Desmond runs the Express newspapers and a fair few porn channels and magazines. The Daily Fail is owned by Lord Rothermere I think with Paul "You C**ting C**t" Dacre, famous for his Vagina Diatribes because of his liberal use of the C word. Ironic really, considering such a puritan paper has such a foul mouthed editor!
