Re: Good luck Lester...
Wish you well, although Fried-Egg Sarnie would be a great name for a future Android OS :)
"In the US you'd have a hard job actually finding a car with manual transmission, unless it's a sports car imported from Europe."
Oh come on, don't pull that, the corvette is available with manual as are some US manufactured VW's and Subaru's and that's just the ones I've seen myself and I live in the UK for 49 weeks of the year. Just because most US buyers pick the auto option doesn't mean that manual doesn't exist in the US.
not Johnny 5, phone 6 and Shakin 7 ?
"The guys that attack me do not attack my technical analysis, they attack me like you have, for perceived personal failings, i.e. ad hom attacks."
Hmm, where is my attack on you, quoting a response is not an attack on someone. It is listening to what someone says rather than just ignoring them to carry on with a sermon.
At no point did I say:
"Eadon isn't going to listen to anyone else so why should I listen to Eadon"
"The reason I am not popular here is that I know exactly what I am talking about from a technical POV, I know my onions."
If you aren't going to listen to anyone else's point of view, but think that you are always right, then why in the hell do you think anyone is going to listen to a word you say.
There's three types of people, those that don't know anything, those that know their stuff but also know they don't know everything and those that think they know it all, but demonstrate time and again that they really don't have a clue.
Options 1 & 2 are easy to get along with, option 3 isn't, as they have a steadfast belief that the world is wrong and they alone, are the only ones that are correct.
But what happens when an option 3 meets another option 3, PARADOX!!!
Yes there are a ton of others you could have had, but the 10 you picked were all bang on as far as I'm concerned, all ten have swallowed up their fair share of my time (actually probably much more than that).
Killer Instinct Arcade would be on their if it was my list, the only arcade I have ever 100% finished (even with eyedol) but it's your list not mine so 10/10 :)
and you shouldn't post if you can't read.
I am aware of why they got the low frequency block, but not why the sort order came out with three nearest to the TV frequencies.
Now did Three pick that block or did the other ops dig deep into their wallets in order to put three in the most painful spot?
....for the BOfH is back from his Christmas hols, was starting to wonder if Dilbert had managed to eliminate another competitor.
Re: LG TV
Bought in the Jan sale in 2012, so guessing 2011. Doesn't show in the premium features menu anymore.
Don't have a lot of choice right now, since LG hurled lovefilm at us Netflix is no longer a choice, unless I want to watch it via a smaller screen on my Xbox, as they removed it from the dash to make way for lovefilm.
Lovefilm is ok when you get it going but the LG app is awful on the LW650t, it takes 2 mins to load the app (sometimes more) from the dash and forget trying to browse, better to do that on your pc then jump straight to it on the TV. That said, once it gets going it seems fine, so far no pauses even at peak times.
Re: Wonder how much tax HMV paid
"Amazon avoiding taxis is equivalent to a very rich murderer getting away with it due to a technicality that can only be revealed by a horde of blood sucking parasetical lawyers manuipulating natural lanagage and bending the legalease until they get their vermim off the hook."
Really?!?! You honesty think that's a good comparison, WOW, swinging wildly and making stuff up is very hard to counter with facts, so I'm not even going to bother.
"It doesn't make it right, it makes it 'legal' in a very loose sense (before the loop hole is plugged and deemed illegal a week later)."
Last time I checked legal means legal until it is made illegal. When it is I'll be right behind HMRC for bringing a court case, until that point it is still legal, despite popular opinion.
Re: Wonder how much tax HMV paid
So, if your line of argument is correct then, no doubt, when HMRC last contacted you advising you of your tax code you contacted them and asked them to jack it up a bit as you felt you were not paying enough tax??
Doubt it, no-one wants to pay more tax than they have to, if a company does then that means less money to go around (one of which is less/no pay raise), but I'm sure you would accept that without moaning right?
Re: There is another fun assumption floating around..
"It is possible to block editing when you generate the document, but I have only ever come across 2 docs that were protected that way."
and those can be quickly removed with any number of PDF security removal tools, both online and offline versions :)
Re: Relationships and stereotype imposition.
Good to see product testing is alive and rotting nicely in it's grave ;)
Re: If you're not pulling together...
Hmm, that's remarkably accurate......food for thought indeed.

I smell an ebay ***RARE*** auction coming
"I can't see the point of this" says 701million year old fish
That's nothing, he can hear pudding!!!
Paul is clear that the jailbroken iPhone is about as stable and reliable as Mario Balotelli's pals at a domestic fireworks demonstration.

Looks like it's not just Samsungs, reports on XDA include HTC sets too. Only Jelly Bean can save us as this problem is on ICS and Gingerbread. The Apple congregation are going to lap this up :)
It looked like the Dunkin' Donut logo!!!!
Oh come on you lot
Simple trick, look at the author, if it's Lewis you know it's going to be flamebait, that's what he writes.
See his name, skip the article.
Re: Eeeh, when I were a lad...
2 channels ?!?!?
You were lucky, we had 1 channel and it was only black, it broadcast for 2 minutes a day.......but we were happy!!!
cities = city
"It hopes to introduce 'ultrafast' speeds of between 80 and 100 Mbps in major cities"
that would be just London then!!!

Wait, that doesn't look right.

Looks like the Borg have come up with a way to skin themselves.
I'm sure the moon is starting to like more like a cube!!!
Re: small sample
"400 people in Minnesota, New York, and California, and in China and Korea"
80 people per area?!?!? That must have taken 5 researchers a little over a lunch hour to do, wonder where the very briefly set up camp?
Not to mention peepz are supposedly ready to hand over cash for an iPride 5 without even having seen any kind of spec? Wow "owned" is the only word that comes to mind
Re: Kindle Fire will arrive in the UK and Europe by "late fall,"
Meh, got bored of waiting and bought an Acer A500 instead. There's generating interest in a product and then there's just being lazy and taking potential customers for granted, oh well.
Well if you auto approve updates and download all products then you got caught napping didn't you. Tsk tsk.
Calling all lawyers
Isn't this illegal interception of e-mails? Didn't phorm do something like this and get crucified for it?
Re: Assuming it was charging at the time
True, but it has bothered me for a while that you see chargers with higher and higher current outputs. If they shipped this with a beefy enough charger it is possible it could have burnt the tracks. Whatever caused it, it had to have been plugged into something at the time, either the charger or it was tethered.
Wrong way around
Surely the winner should have just got the one crap DVD, with the third place getting all ten, with fourth place getting all ten and being forced to watch them all back to back without recreating "that scene from scanners" :)
I bought a bag of potatoes but ended up with a bloody iPhone grrrr
you said "penetration testers".....<snicker>
Agreed, I'm not getting fired because some cloud jockey hit the wrong button. Our stuff stays on our servers where I know backups are done properly and I can restore stuff without having to submit flippin tickets.
Re: We should all lead simple lives...
Problem there is most of the flock have no idea how to look after a pot plant, let alone a field full of plants that would keep them alive.
Let me guess did the tree huggers publish this on hemp using no steel or concrete or glass, little hard to distribute it by hand around the globe because they obviously don't use any fossil fuels and solar powered wooden planes are everywhere. Hypocrites!!
Hardly surprising it hasn't proven successful when we still can't do it !!!! Only the Fruity crowd are eagle enabled, the rest of us outside of the US are stuck with no eagle and no way to get rid of the bloomin ads either.
Love the way so many companies bang on about being global, when they are as global as the world series of baseball :(
Something funny here
Apart from the first image showing a Proview graphic you try and spot anything in the other images that identifies them as from the same site. The layout in images 2-8 doesn't seem to tie with that shown in image 1. I smell a rat, and it's not the one in pic 5 either ;)
Erm Nope, Nope
Memphis = Win98
Cairo wasn't any finished windows version, part of it was WinFS, so Wibble was right, but not when he said Cairo was win2k.
Win2k 32bit didn't have a code name, the 64 bit version did = Janus. and win2k SP1 was Asteroid.
Can I have my badge now :)
