Flame on! Go Go Lego Geeks FTW!
Oh great...every time there's a Logo story, the usual Meccano fanbois roll in.
Structural strength isn't everything, you know.
Honey's off, love.

LOL @ thumbs down!
Looks like his mother has dropped by
That's THE un-American gear-head rag read by no one, IUDM
Am I missing something? How can he claim 'firsties'? Secondsies, surely?
I thought this sort of thing only went on at B3TA...
'everyone hates us and we don 't care'?
Rob Gates is a Millwall fan?
Reminds me of that line in Fight Club
"A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one. "
To one poor man's terrible solution to state persecution, intolerance and despair? I've never thought about the rainbow colours before but even that could be seen as a reference to his homesexuality.
I just dug out an interview with the logo designer, in which he denies this (so I guess I'm not the only one, after all). He did, however, describe the method of suicide as 'really cool'.
Why is this in Bootnotes?
And am I the only person that sees Apple's logo as a sick joke at Turing's expense?
As in, "Williams Arcade Classics" which I have running on Windows 7x64 via DOSbox.
Defender is perfect. Also has JOUST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and Robotron
...the Final Frontier!
My vision is 20/20...
...plus my Philips 28" CRT was a Which? best buy when we bought it in the mid-90s. I think the digital set top box (BT iPlayer! - really quick) is of similar vintage. The picture, both analogue and digital, is excellent. I'm also very close to a transmitter.
From what you describe, it sounds more like it's your signal or your equipment which is poor. Several times over the years I've browsed shops like Currys to see the latest shiniest TVs on display, and saw very, very few which I would say had an acceptable picture.
And for games i use my rather gorgeous 1920x1200 IPS panel.
"people would reject HD if it had the noise and artifacts that are the accepted norm for SD."
If you've noticed this, then you've already got HD and are hardly likely to 'reject it'.
Personally, I haven't noticed this, but then I've still got a CRT. Crystal clear, SD digital signal, but mostly shit programmes. The occasional opportunity to see the all the hairs up someone's nose was hardly an incentive to 'invest' in this tech. Bigger screen? SFW? A good film or show will immerse you, regardless of your diagonal inches or pixel count.
But now all the sheep are rushing off to buy into the latest embryonic unsupported wild-west technology (3D) so the price of simple HD kit should fall through the floor. In a couple of years, when the kids want something other than Cbeebies, it might be worth considering.
Really, what exactly have I been missing out on? Same goes for Blu-ray
"The ability to use Wi-Fi and cellphones on planes may be curtailed..."
Good luck, 'Amy'
I hope you get every penny.
Oh, and Virginia-based deputy sheriff Arthur Weston Staples III? Can't wait to read about your appeal against the damages, you treacherous piece of crap!
That is all
and what's more...
...thanks to Dosbox, I've just discovered that it now runs on Win7x64!
So much for getting some work done today!
I've got this
It's a total labour of love. Even sound-effect bugs were re-created. Haven't tried it on Win7 but XP32 managed it.
Also comes with 'Joust'!
Oi! Metric Sytem!
Represent a third.....go on! What's that? three point three what? LOL
OK - who stuck 50p in this idiot and pressed the button?
I'll be there...
...to wave you off!
Good riddance, you miserable bollocks!
The long winter evenings....
...must just fly by.

re "colloquial expression" determination
They will use http://viz.co.uk/profanisaurus.php as the definitive resource.
And so will we. It will lead to an arms race of filthy punnage.
this, from the rag that gave you, ONLY YESTERDAY:
The HOT news that the latest version of Windows Mobile would at last have a touchscreen, and apps.
Don't go contradicting them, now!
Guardian readers untie! FWT!!!!!

"Even more popular than Zork, and equally text-based, was The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, despite (or because) most of us never made it to the pub. That's available in Java form, and Flash, but not yet in the minimalist HTML interface suitable for rendering on an electronic book - even one that happens to have a keyboard"
Your tiny screaming Caribean island sounds idyllic
What I wouldn't give to be sitting offshore in a boat one night listening to the gunshots, crowing and swearing.
Next week will be 'Tits in a bin" maybe followed by a bum, or even a knob
"resonable steps must be provided"
i think you mean 'ramp'
YMMV, but I set this up for my septugenerian in-laws when I visited them in upstate New York. They were getting calls at all hours. It took one very pleasant phone-call to the Telco (that I found in their phone-book) and just asked them if such a service existed. About 4 weeks later the calls all but stopped. My in-laws remain delighted to this day and I am #1 son-in-law. (like Alfred E.Newman, #1 in a field of 1)

I'm in town right now! Chills!
I might go have a peek...maybe they'll take an offer. Looks like it needs a good coat of paint, though.
The Great Rock ('La Rocca') really is that. Apparently, if Crowley thought any of his minions were getting too big for their boots, he'd make them climb it, so as to make them feel insignificant. It works.

Steve Jobs is now officially King Canute? (or at least a partial anagram of 'Canute'...)
Imagine the Hilarity...

"You make us look bad to the rest of the world."
I'd been wondering who that was.
From the Spitting Image mid-80s book thing Pop trivia pages
"contrary to popular opinion, in his private life, Prince is a pratt"
I can't hear his name without thinking of that line. That's over 25 years, & counting.
I love my brain.
