Eh? Am I in a time warp? Is it Friday afternoon already?
Because this sounds distinctly like a Friday afternoon article.
Reminds me of Red Dwarf...
Who needs to search for Adele?
You could hardly miss her.
Give the man a pint.
Pisses me off that no Linux distro keeps up to date with this. Even Windows does better in that regard.
I haven't received a letter yet
Is everyone going to receive a letter? Do I still need to opt out if I don't get a letter, and if so, how?
Surely a savvy kid could reinstall with a dodgy copy of Windows (either downloaded or borrowed off a mate). Or even Linux. I'd certainly try if it was me. We all know you can't be sure of security if the guilty party has physical access to the machine.
Also, Becta's promises don't mean jack. I'd rather have the school spying than the government spying.
What's to stop the kids
buying another cheap-ass PAYG phone?

The people called Romanes

It would HAVE been a good idea.
And don't diss the Sugababes, I don't care for their music but Heidi would definitely get it.
Paris as there aren't any other icons of females to choose from.
Pretty sure I got the real one

Too many tw*ts in suits
Not enough people who actually know how to do their job. That goes for public and private sector, IT and management, etc.
Can't Wiki just tell them
to refer to the reply given in the case of Arkell v. Pressdram?
Problems with Ubuntu?
Try Debian. Same great package manager (they made it) and it runs on just about anything from an old SPARC32 laptop (if you're willing to go back to etch) to a 64-bit quad-core PC.
A few sandwiches short of a picnic?
He's not just missing the sandwiches, he's missing the beer, the scotch eggs, the plates, the blanket, the cool bag, all of it.
