Does it have farto go?
Oh, I don't know... there's many, many lessons to be learned from the UK government's handling of IT projects.
Re: Christ on a bike!
So long as they see we, as a race, are shitting in the aquarium and install some better filters etc.
Christ on a bike!
Have these people never seen Dr Who? Yeah, great idea, not, putting a big cache of DNA up on the moon for any old passing invasion fleet to turn into some kind of 'blood control' weapon.
Re: oh joy
My brown starfish has been leaking away for a while now.
Re: IT angle
No starfish tank, but I do have a coral drawer.
I mean, it's interesting and all, but...
where's the IT angle?
This is 2014
So the warning would have to be fixed to the bottom of the screen using jquery in dark grey on top of light grey in a microscopic typeface but it only appears after you have started to infinitely scroll down through the reviews, continuously adjusting your mouse/pointer position as the scroll bar's active target area shrinks and shrinks and shrinks as the page fills up with rubbish and never stops loading anyway?
Re: Useful debris
I've analysed the readings from the MP3 detector and...
it looks like a limpet rocket of some kind. Like the sort they use to clear space junk. It must be based inside one of those derelicts out there.
Yes. Yes it can. It also shits rainbows.
Re: I don't know about the T&C's
First goal is in a box the size of Windscale. The stretch goals are "a box van", "a shoe box" and finally "a match box". Additional stretch goal is to make it compatible with Windows 8.
Sounds like a Harry Potter spell. Certainly magic that the little fella's down and appears safe.
Given the noodly appearance of aforementioned Jaggaroth species... They were created in 'His' image.
If they find them, it will put a big tick next to that bit of the life-from-space hypothesis. If they don't find them, then the hypothesis stays as it. Anyway, we all know that life on earth started when the Jaggaroth space ship exploded during lift off, scattering alien amino acids across the primal soup of the planet.
Re: With you on this
Do you live in Watford as well, then?
Re: Osgood's Death - Needless? Pointless?
She lost all that weight for a start.
Re: Osgood's Death - Needless? Pointless?
I cared about Tegan's aunt. Well, I cared that Tegan cared. She was pretty shook up about it.
Re: Puzzled by it.
But... it could have been Zygon Osgood. I hope so, anyway.
On the other hand... it could have been Zygon Osgood that got zapped.
The Brig is now a kind of Iron Man. Maybe, now Earth has a defender, we'll see some proper space based adventures.
Re: Anyone else think this season is targeted at the "under 8" age bracket?
I thought it was suitable for 8 to 80. IQ that is.
Re: Plan Ten from Outer Space
Plan 9 didn't work out so well... on to the next one.
That's the best thing about The Master coming back as a woman... no more John Simm.
The Master's character has definitely developed though. He used to just be a scheming megalomaniac with a desire to rule, now he/she's a screaming, babbling psychopath with schemes grander than reality could possibly allow.
"Cyberman (talking to a Dalek): "You will identify first!".
Dalek: "Daleks do not take orders!"
Cyberman: "You have identified yourself Dalek..."
"Don't tell him, Pike."
I think the typing was done whilst watching the TV screen, not the computer screen. A few mistakes in this piece!
Re: half an inch precision tech?
A thousandth of an inch error? That's nothing. At Derby Carriage and Wagon Works, they were always spot on.
It's a safety exercise which they can enumerate to the bean counters as having regular cost savings above and beyond being sued and fined when it all goes bogey up.
Re: Do you have to...
If you're an engineering graduate you are fast-tracked.
Re: Good, but not good enough
Did you know that there's an electricity meter on every power pickup car, which communicates wirelessly at defined service reading locations? That way, the ToCs can pay their 'leccy bill to Network Rail who supplied the juice.
Re: So my upgrade path is gonna be...
I'm planning to upgrade to VMS!
When I get phone calls...
from colleagues for whom I am IT support telling me they have bought a new computer and then asking me "How do I shut it down?" there's a problem. These are not stupid people. We're talking professors of brain science here.
Re: Female Master was predictable
Don't cremate me, because it's hard to weld a stainless steel exoskeleton onto a pile of ashes.
I think they cut a scene of the Doctor running up countless flights of stairs, whilst Missy takes the lift.
"so the concept of a soul tied to the body and still receiving sensations from such surviving cells isn't totally inconceivable."
And there's no Death, no "Grim Reaper", to come and snicker-snack the cord with his scythe sharp enough to slice atoms apart.
Re: Are these actually cybermen ?
Provided these cybermen haven't, you know, gone rusty or something, sitting in all that water for a few years.
Or he could have had a can of Karn-a-Cola.
Re: which Cybermen
Oh no they wouldn't. The streets of London are paved with gold.
"Seb the sinister pen pusher, sympathising with Danny and rolling his eyes like a John Cleese bowler-hatted bureaucrat while gently shepherding the uncomprehending Pink to his fate."
Well, what do you think? We can bury her or burn her.
Well, which do you recommend?
Well, they're both nasty. If we burn her, she gets stuffed in the flames, crackle, crackle, crackle, which is a bit of a shock if she's not quite dead, but quick. And then we give you handful of ashes, which you can pretend are hers.
Or, if we bury her she gets eaten up by the worms which, as I said before, is a bit of a shock if she's not quite dead.
I think we've got an eater.
Right, I'll get the oven on.
Re: And he is sooooo quick...
Something about rooting.
And he is sooooo quick...
to forget the wonderful, marvellous Jabe.
God, I'd have been happy getting a splinter from her.
Re: I was more worried about the complete lack of people...
Maybe... a lot of a lot of a lot of people turned into trees and then turned back at the end.
I was more worried about the complete lack of people...
(1) You are not allowed on the streets unless you started your journey with a camera crew.
(2) You are not allowed on the streets unless you are armed forces or police making a specific plot point.
Re: Rubbish science
At 15, I'd never have managed a post that long... unless I had developed a method of typing one handed, of course.
So how else did you...
think "handover" worked?
If I recall correctly, the blurb goes along the lines of "Start an email or a document on one device and finish it on another."
Not a surprise.
I would be worried, however, if Handover was a feature you could turn off and this still happened when this was done.

Re: 450m molehill?
"Very relieved that I don't have moles like that in my garden."
What are doing, Carrot?
Re: Finally, a Good Episode
On the other hand, Bristol, Saturday night, up against the wall... 2D-porn.
We've already seem Missy relaxing in Paradise, aka The Walled Garden from the Handbot episode.
