Do the sweet natured and loving siblings, the Gallager brothers know about this?
Mine's the one with a wonderwall in the pocket...
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 - :)
It's Friday and we have Playmobile! What more can a commentard ask for! (well, ok, maybe some more BOFH, please)
No, that is probably just to annoy the Opera user that everyone down votes.
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.
Wonder if it's going to be worthwhile picking one of these up for the peanuts they are now worth just in case they become collectors items later on!
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.
Looking through all that lot I think it would be simpler to forget about any balloons, launchers, toruses (tori?) etc and leave LOHAN where it is and just move the Earth out of the way 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.
Go wash your mouth out with soap and water!
I'm just wondering why some idiot downvoted you just for stating that something happened. There are some complete twonks around here, aren't there!
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"
We've got to make our web sites support IE8 until 2020? Oh bugger...

"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!
He should pop over here and bag a few of those in Westminster whose main aim in life seems to be to produce hot air...
My heart bleeds.... meh!
Couldn't happened to a nicer guy - hmm, could do with an icon depicting a hangman's scaffold here... ah well, the Satan one will have to do instead.
Now that's dedication...
I vote that we honour him with the title "Fanboi Supreme" (well, until someone donates their heart in exchange for an iPad, anyway).
Nokia Sales Forecast
A spokesman for Nokia said, "We might (or might not) sell something next quarter. But don't quote me."
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).
A flaw in IE!!! Shock Horror!
Microsoft can't be trusted! Shock horror!
Well, that really comes as a surprise to me....
Mine's the one with the <sarcasm> tags in the pocket.
"a phishing site running on Sony's servers"
And it WASN'T the PlayStation Network?
Since when do politicians and tabloid journalists count as "life" (well, maybe, but certainly not life as we know it, Jim)
...will they ever get this technology working on holographically projected keyboards?
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!
Nah, do it yourself and upload them here:
...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.
Or even better
Use some nifty HTML5 (or Web2.0rhea if you prefer) code to implement icon drag and drop properly.
Also known as a ZDNet icon </sarcasm>
V for Vendetta icon
Please please pretty please. Ah go on you know you want to...
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...
Pity they didn't arrest the annoying git bashing a drum all the way through it...
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>
Aha, I think Classic Shell is what you are talking about. It's a free download from Sourceforge - I'm playing with it now... Hmm, seems good so far and all the settings are customisable. Neat!
32-bit systems (by the very nature of using 32-bit addresses) can only access 4GB max. 32-bit Windows (XP and 7) usually only accesses 3 of those 4. 64-bit systems can access more. 2^32 = 4,294,967,296 bytes (= 4GB). 64-bit systems can, in theory, access 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 bytes though MS restrict maximum memory access depending on which version of Win7-64 you have - they even limit the Starter version to 2GB! See:
I regret to say...
...that, unfortunately, you are wrong. There are plenty of the clueless still using it.
I'm off to buy a shed load of black ones and a tin of white paint!
