Re: How about a Reg readers' suggestion thread...
I'm going for a Prostitute Lego set. Build your own sleazy neighborhood complete with ladies of the night on every street corner, "customers" slowly driving by and pimps in flashy motors at an appropriate distance. Could be a winner
If He's That Bothered
maybe he should contact Lego and get them to roll out a Lego "Jesus" set. Just think of the fun he could have: Lego Last Supper with his disciples, the arrest and questioning of Lego Jesus by Lego Pontius Pilate, a Lego cross complete with crown of thorns and to top it off, a resurrected Lego Jesus, all angelic. On second thoughts I think I might contact Lego with this idea
all publicity is good publicity
I can see it now ...
a rookie journo is asked to do a piece in Fortune just to fill space up and to show the editor what he/she can do so sits on the bog for 10 minutes and comes up with this crap.
As they are a catholic they feel it compulsory to put the pope (you get no uppercase title from me) in the No1 spot then adds a few yanks that no one outside the USA has heard of and a smattering of Europeans just to make up the numbers and to keep us (kind of) interested.
Bono is included because the journo thinks U2 are a great band and salivates every time they are heard on FM radio. (Of course this is all conjecture. If I'm right, great, if I'm not, so what)
Re: Isn't it even worse for you ....
have an up vote for the reference to a great movie
Oh great, I work all my fucking life and don't get so much as a bloody parking ticket, pay taxes all my working life so some low-life thieving bastard can sit in prison and have the opportunity for free (CCNA) that would cost me hundreds of pounds? Sod rehabilitation, punish em and make em suffer.And as for the liberal do-gooders, down vote me all you like but at the end of the day you know that this system is totally wrong and the wrong people are getting punished, the honest ones.
I am now officially cool, even though (facially) I look like a cross between a tramp and a founding member of the ZZ Top Appreciation Society.
Re: Fools not Clerics
Its easy to cherry-pick excerpts from books to make your point but it borders on total arrogance to state " they translated the intellectual libraries (Grk-Rmn) from the past, corrected its faults and invented progressive methods of exploration of the elements which became and still today at the forefront of scientific research and proof by calculus, not just philosophy."
Who are you, or anyone else for that matter, to say that the intellectual libraries of the Greeks and Romans needed correcting. If anything needs correcting it a book that states the following:
Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing...
Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."
Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority"
Quran (4:95) - "Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward"
And if all this wasnt bad enough
.. the NSA are even using popular entertainment shows to get their "good guy" message over. Check out episode 9 of the latest season of NCIS where NCIS recruit a NSA analyst who spends a large portion of the show telling people how they "don't bug people" and "have to get a court order, just like you guys" to listen in on people.Its so blatantly obvious that the producers have been told to run this story-line, its makes you want to vomit.

Where's the "I dont need protection"?
Ive just moved over (about half an hour ago) from O2 to Sky and there is definitely an opt-out button on the filter page. At the bottom of the page there is a large grey button with the words "I dont need protection" emblazoned on it. After clicking on it everything that I used to get with O2 is accessible. Maybe they have different pages for different categories of people, adult single, adult with children etc. I must have got the single adult page.
"Our goal is to deliver advertising and other commercial or sponsored content that is valuable to our users and advertisers" of course it is Zuckertwat, along with furnishing the NSA and all other spook organisations with users personal information. Every time I see a picture of Zuckerbitch I think 'how many times did you get beaten up at school?'
I thought it was only children in the playground that fought over chocolate bars. Obviously I'm wrong.
So whats the difference between this ransomeware and the Cheshire Constabulary ransomware that has been around for ages and does exactly the same thing? Time to get up to speed people.

May on the Andrew Marr Show
Did anyone see this interview?. Once again the buzzword "paedophile" was thrown in along with "terrorist" when the ugly one was talking about re-introducing the Communications Data Bill, just to make sure everyone is just that little bit more scared because this is what its all about; ruling by fear and we all know that a frightened population is a controlled population.
I could tender for the contract, dont know much about computers although i did change a graphics card once. Maybe I could swing it.
The singer from Romania looks like an extra from The Twilight Saga or Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Its just strange
that on the day that the BPI announce they are going after another 25 torrent sites, Google, the biggest torrent search engine on planet earth, has better access to 10 Downing street than the parliamentary under secretary of state. Its little wonder the BPI were shouting at Google but remember, they are not evil so can do what they like
Not so sweet
The reason O2/Be are offering customers free broadband for a year or more if they stay is simple, they've been promised a £20million sweetener from Sky if they keep a certain percentage of their customer database. the more that leave, less chance of the sweetner. Im on O2 and plan to leave (not sure who to yet) as soon as my contract is up in a couple of months. At the rate customers are leaving Telefonica havent got a hope of the extra cash
I'm just too old
to be a hipster and I knew this the moment I read PBR and thought ' PBR street gang...this is Almighty...over' and didnt have a clue it was a beer.
Businessmen, crooks in suits, being helped by politicians who are crooks in suits. How can anyone be surprised by this?
Good to see
Order-Order and the Daily Mash on the list but wheres "mingers.com" biased bbc" and chris spivey "dont fuck with the baldy"? I also see that theres a distict lack of supermarket websites (do these people think we dont shop?) oh well, suppose this is what happens when you let librarians loose.
is a reaction to being in H.M Forces for 12 years and shaving every day. On the day I left I said to myself 'no more shaving and no more haircuts' that was almost 30 years ago and I havent shaved off my beard to this day, just a trim every now and again. Thankfully the haircuts did continue to the point that there is now more hair on my face than on my head.
of Sky thinking its gonna need hundreds of extra workers because of the influx of O2/Be customers. Im on O2 and beleive me, a lot of people currently with O2/Be arent sticking around when the changeover occurs (me for one) The usual sentiment on the O2/Be forums is "F*** Murdoch"
Is it me
or do those tattoos look like marker pen? Ive got a lot of tattoos and none of the colours look like that. They just dont look like real tatts.
Upvotes for all mentions of Event Horizon, a classic movie

after reading about your poor sensitive feelings being sadistically attacked by "dongle" and "forking" jokes I thought it would be a nice idea to offer you a small respite and invite you over to England for a short holiday. While you are here, maybe a trip to an English football (soccer) match would be enlightening. Im sure a few thousand football supporters chanting "get ya tits out for the lads" at every attractive female and of course the famous "get into em,fuck em up" would be a therapeutic experience and put recent events into perspective. Maybe you could take pictures of the perpetrators and see how long you survive Or maybe a trip out on a saturday night into the city centre to view the local neanderthals under the influence of copious amounts of Stella would, Im sure, be an eye opening revelation and would certainly make what you have recently encountered pale into insignificance. People say and do things that offend others every single day of the year, this is life and this is how its lived, accept it or become a hermit, the choice is yours. Just dont make a big song and dance about it because when you do, it makes you look an idiot
So a group of (mostly female) EU bureaucrats comes up with a plan to ban internet porn on the day thats designated International Womens Day. What a coincidence.
What happens if
its just.... rock?
as to the ringtone? I would hazzard a guess that it wasnt "Please Release Me" or "Hey fatty bum bum"...ok Im going.

and O2 have just given me half price BB for the next 12 months as contract expired at end of last month. I didnt want to leave and they obviously didnt want to lose a customer so couldnt refuse as service as been very good. Hoping this sell-out doesnt happen as gawd knows where Im going to migrate to.
The British Government
will form a committee to discus this situation and will publish their findings sometime around summer 2037
I’ll be 81 years old and assuming I’m still alive, will have fathered 2 children, divorced once and loved a few more times, hopefully watched my daughter become a very successful businesswoman (she’s half way there already) and seen my son fulfil his dream of directing a film. I’ll have seen some of the most beautiful places on Earth (Angkor Wat, the Pyramids and standing at the foot of Everest looking up) seen the football team I support play at Wembley 3 times (won 1 lost 2) along with having eaten and drunk much more than is good for me in my life. So I reckon I’ll be more than happy to face the impending doom of an asteroid crashing into the planet.(skips off singing "its the end of the world as we know it but I feel fine")
Battleship was pretty shite and had me wondering how I could ever get my couple of hours back that I wasted watching it then I watched Django Unchained and all was forgiven,totally restoring my faith in Hollywood.
Did I miss the part
of the Bible that says "Thou shalt not wear a RFID tag for they are the work of satan and hell awaits those that adorn themselves with such sinful apparel" or is that only in the American version?
Its ok liking it now
at the "hobby" stage but what happens when you are doing it five days a week, week in week out as a job? 12 years ago after being made redundant twice in engineering I too decided I wanted to get into IT, put the work and the hours in to get the qualifications (A+,Network and security+ along with CCNA) and thought I was the mutts nuts when it came to computers until they just took over.
Imagine this, you spend every weekday in front of a computer then when you want time away from them at the weekend you are getting phone calls from family and friends along the lines of "any chance you could come and look at my pc ?, theres something wrong with it" Trust me, it gets to you. In the end I started taking myself off to my close friends garage and tinkering with car engines (something Ive always enjoyed) 3 years ago I'd had enough and was at the garage bitching and moaning about IT and computers, telling my friend how I wanted out. He then offered me a job working in the garage. Of course I took it and for the last 3 years Ive never been happier even tho the money is way less than I was getting and no one asks a grease monkey (which is what I tell people I am) to fix their car.
Do something you like by all means but believe me IT isnt what its cracked up to be.
"only Dishonored and Far Cry 3 offered an experience fitting the billing ‘game of the year’, Talk sense man. Any so called "game review" that doesnt even MENTION Borderlands 2 isnt worth reading. Granted Dishonored is good but doesnt live up to the hype and as for Far Cry 3, that has been as dissapointing as No2 in the series. This discussion shouldnt even be happening. Borderlands 2 (and 1 for that matter) beats them all hands down. Next you'll be saying that the latest version of Need For Speed: Most Wanted is better than the original.
As I see it,when a MP is appointed as a Secretary of State, no matter what department, there seems to be a rush to "assert their authority" and "leave their mark" as well as the need to be seen to be doing something to justify their appointment as well as their inflated wages and over-inflated ego. Theresa May is no exception. She probably said to all her lackies on entering office "We really need to leave our mark on this department" Of course she will use the plural as a way of making all her lackies feel like they too are on some grand quest to change the department and the lives of millions,if not the world, which of course we, in the real world, know is complete and utter tosh and therein lies the problem, AFAICS, the need to be seen to be doing something.
The next time a new Secretary of State is appointed, just watch and wait to see how long it takes him/her to come out with some "grand plan" it happens every time as in Ian Duncan Smiths Universal Credit (which has been criticised by a large number of groups as having the potential to cause chaos across the benefits system) and Im sure theres more if I could be bothered to look. Sometimes doing nothing is the best way forward.
Hang on a sec....
..if Mr Millionaire/Billionaire (the amount is irrelevant) is really paranoid about Belize justice and being stitched up for something he hasnt done, why doesnt he just use some of his wealth to get out the country? I cant believe that someone with his financial clout and presumably long list of friends cant conjure up a plane or a boat to get him out pronto. He cant be that crazy if he can work out disguises and ways to avoid the police. Something doesnt smell right about all this.
"Adrian remains employed by the Trust and I am pleased this matter has now concluded".
Has he been reinstated to his old position? has his pay cut been rescinded? I notice the trust is very quiet about this and as for the politically correct halfwit that started all this bollocks,what has become of her? Hopefully she is the new Paperclip and Toilet Roll Co-ordinating Officer for the housing trust.
