Oh, you mean "oar". I was trying to figure out what was relevant about being chained to a rock (or even "chaned to a roc").
You bastard! I followed that link and, spotting the title, just managed to close the browser tab down before it played the second note!!
You should not see this at all?
First time I've run Acid 3 in months. Funny, but I saw that message on one run using the Comodo browser (Webkit based) - a second run had it appear for a split second and then it disappeared. Other browsers sometimes show it momentarily.
All the browsers I tested* got 100%, including IE9 (and I tested the latest versions of FF, Comodo, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
*except Lynx - :)
Just how powerful is that laser? If I dismantle the drive can I use the laser to knock planes out the sky?
Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?
Mines the one with a grump in the pocket.
And, while we're at it, have a similar law apply to politicians and their so called 'promises' with the exception that if they don't keep their promises they don't wear a dunce cap but have their entire head removed instead.
A developers' union could be a good thing. Well, it is about time Google became accountable to the rest of the world+dog. They do lots of good stuff but seem to think they can live in an ivory tower ignoring those knocking on the door with legitimate issues.
Ok, so imagine one of these is driving along a narrow mountain road with a sheer drop on one side and solid rock on the other. Now stick a jaywalker (or a goat) in the middle of the road around the next corner. Does the car plough into the rock and kill the driver or throw itself down the mountainside and ditto ditto? Or can the driver override the system and just impale the jaywalker/goat on the front grill?
But, surely, that should of bin "Shirley knot?"
How sad, I feel a Nelson Muntz moment coming on.
Don't bother Sarah
Here's one I made earlier:
Scroll down just past half way or Ctrl-F for "bootnotes"
@AC 16:13 Geri
"He then got his nervous system wired up to his wife's (and, I think, a robot arm controller). That is really, really cool and fuck anyone who disagrees. Nervous system control over a robot arm and inter-nervous system communications are awesome"
The most surprising bit about that is the fact that some woman was mental enough to become his wife - what WAS she thinking?
Bill - I see that, although billray.com has been taken, both billrayhack.com and billrayreghack.com are still up for grabs!
But Shirley that should be...
...an iRoar or an iWhimper!
Both have probably been trademarked by now as Apple have, no doubt, employed someone and given them the sole task of going through a large dictionary putting an 'i' in front of every word in it and registering most of them - hmm, wonder if they've registered iCunt yet....
Bloody hell - can't believe I actually said that about the useless, Phorm-loving, money-grabbing bastards. But between BT and the DEA it's definitely a case of the "lesser of two weasels" (or something like that).
Since when do politicians and tabloid journalists count as "life" (well, maybe, but certainly not life as we know it, Jim)
OMG - woman with no legs!
Pan left and down until you see a disgusting looking building covered with lime green, yellow and orange. Next zoom in to the left of the building and onto the bus coming towards you. On the pavement just in front of the bus is a woman in a pink jacket who appears to have no legs and is floating above the pavement! Fantastic!
Who cares about some shitty French car, Iooking for the bad photo joins is much more fun!
No, if it had been it would have been called "Transparent Aluminum"
Ok, I'll get me coat...
You could really confuse them with REBOL!
...this should have been posted under ROTM, not biology?
I suggest they call it SONY - it will then install a rootkit on the ISS as it passes, accidentally broadcast all the addresses and credit card details of the entire 1.3 billion Chinese population before hitting a satellite and crashing into a Japanese nuclear power station after failing to burn up in the atmosphere.
I'm just amusing myself trying to imagine what colour of 'beetroot' the down-voter's face was going as he/she/it down-voted the list of anti-Pope comments above...
No no no. That's not a problem - see the Futurama episode "Roswell That Ends Well" for an explanation (of sorts).
Wow, what a wonderful idea! Instead of actually FIXING the problems which cause Windows to slow down let's add yet another BODGE to the system which just makes it appear like we've fixed it! Pretty much the same mindset in use when they "fixed" the corrupted DLLs that plagued earlier versions by storing backups that would get copied back over the in-use versions when they became corrupted, INSTEAD of actually fixing the things that were causing the DLLs to become corrupted in the first place. Pathetic!
Early Microsoft Coding
If you want to see how "good" some of the early Microsoft coding was, then go and read "Barbarians Led by Bill Gates" by Jennifer Edstrom and Marlin Eller - especially pages 27/8 about the "Brain dead bit of code" that just happened to have been written by a certain Mr Gates!
I think the OP is failing to grasp <insert anything you like here>
