Parliament has no time for 100,000+ signature e-petitions

Z 1

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."

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!

Ubuntu seeks Android-packin' Windows deserters

Z 1
Linux

Yep

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.

Incredible!

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.

Filthy PCs: The X-rated circus of horrors

Terminator

Chilling

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!

Google sued for scanning emails of non-Gmail users

Z 1
Headmaster

Hmmm

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.

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!
