Re: .... @Danbo
Probably best. We could get a plaque made up about it being an El Reg 1st.
Not sure what it could be made out of though.

@Chris W. You certainly know your trees. Don't get lost in the woods now while you check out those trees.....It'll be a shame if you didn't come back and share more of your factual but unfunny posts.

Re: Last laugh
I was got rid of from a place and 2 weeks later the Exchange server goes tits up due to hardware issue. They managed to get someone in to rebuild it and then went to apply the backups. Of course they'd got rid of the guy who monitored and ensured the backups worked.... me.
Oh I how laughed... then I remembered I was unemployed which took the shine off it. Oh well.
Ah yes the insider trading on the shares always gives it away. Mr CxO what a lot of shares you've decided to exercise your options on? I wonder why.....?
A few days later.... A whole bunch of us are leaving due to down sizing of the workforce, the share price climbs on the back of it. We get shite all but look you've just cashed in those 50,000 shares you bought at $14 and they're worth $1.3m. Good work, you're definitely feeling our pain.

Hire these guys as consultants quickly.... They seem to know more about how each app works and communicates in the sub system than the consultants we overpay to project manage and 'badly implement' our current ERP upgrade project.
Had this same discussion only the other week with an ISP Acc Mgr...
In my office I have a backup DSL line that is truly unlimited (no small print about data caps) but runs so slowly it's not used as the main internet pipe, so they can 'say' unlimited I guess. Anyhow apparently it will be fibre enabled in the near future. I told the provider (Eircom) that I'd think about using their fibre as our primary internet pipe when it is enabled at 70/20mb but then I realised that they have a data cap on their business fibre products (but not their home ones) which we'd exceed at least by a factor of 4 per month..... So what's the point in that? We'd pay more in penalties for exceeding our data cap than the mad expensive price we already pay for the existing MAN fibre from the premises....
Re: Only now?
Yeap - I was kinda wondering why this wasn't the first bleeding obvious thing to do....

I dunno it must be Friday or sumfink. I'm still sniggering about that comment.
Personally seven years old is way too young. I'd love to be able to say I'd get mine to at lest double digits in age but of course once the eldest one has one the youngest will want one and that kinda defeats these age rules we are thinking of setting for the first one..... Also all it takes at school is one parent to buckle and give their child a mobile (at too young an age) and suddenly it's "But Fred/Bob/Bill has one..... Why can't I....?!?!??!"
If your seven year old 'needs' their own mobile to contact you then that means you aren't sure where they are most of the time.... Kinda worrying.

Re: Robert Roberts
Barrys! It's a class name for a tea. It's not my tea, oh no it's Barrys!
When my parents visit Ireland they buy Barrys tea and take it back to England. One of the family works for Twinings tea and can get it discounted but no.... the parents prefer Barrys.

Been back on holiday in England and rained on for four 'English summers' in a row now. Last year 12 rainy days out of 14. There isn't going to be a 5th year this time.

Re: How to have your cake and eat it.
If only it was so simple....
As other posters have pointed out. Increase Corp Tax in Ireland and those companies will leave to a lower Corp Tax haven, removing tens of thousands of jobs as well. Then Ireland gets into an even worse state requiring more EU funded money from your pockets.
Go on lend us a tenner. You will, you will, you will. Go on, Go on, Go on, Go on, Go on, Go on, Go on.
Reminds me of this story..
Re: Not quite right
Well not so sure about that.....I think it may be used for some tax haven purposes as ironically we pay the 20% VAT rate to the UK for Sky products (not the 23% VAT to the Irish Gov), except for installs and service call outs (where it does get paid to the Irish Gov @ 23% VAT). You'd wonder....
Surely this only happened after intense lobbying by the Rolling Stones......?
Maybe the pension pot was a bit low after the global slump.

Right arm strain eh? Can happen after hours on the internet.... This occurred before trying to write the review?

>But one of the biggest complaints regarding Street View is that the camera is about 9 feet up, and therefore able to see over the top of normal sized fences and hedges - just like a flying drone.
Exactly the issue I had. Mr Google in his car drove down the side alleyway next to my house (not a public highway) and took lovely pictures of the back of my house, garage and garden, showing loads more detail than could be seen by just walking down the side of the house. They then incorrectly put them on the streetview map, so as you travelled down the public road outside my house, you magically jumped to the side alley and saw the images of the back of my house!
(In fairness they did remove them all once I reported them as a privacy issue).

Typical Daily Mail....
Can they blame it on the immigrants, bringing the signal over smuggled in their pants?
Re: Some do..
Yeah that really gets my goat. Why they can't allow it to be accessed by those of us in ROI is beyond me when we can officially get all the UK content on satellite. Content on RTE player is available internationally for some of it's home grown programs. Sure we don't pay a TV licence fee to the BBC directly (as no doubt will be mentioned) but as I have Sky, some of my subscription is paid to the BBC to allow it to be on the Irish Sky EPG. - Yes I know all the UK PSBs are available FTA ... Anyhow we should really be able to view 'some' of the BBC content online without resorting to 'other' methods.
<"Unfortunately, the path of asteroid 2012 DA14 is tilted relative to Earth, requiring too much energy to chase it down for mining," say the wannabe space prospectors at Deep Space Industries>
Right...... otherwise you're ready to go mining then if a slower one appears? Really?
So it's back in the earth's neighbourhood in thirty odd years - 2046. The last footprint was left on the moon forty years ago and nothing has been lifted to space on the same scale since...... Unless it hits us in 2046, I'd imagine it'll fly by uninhibited by any fantastical mining plans then as well.
yes really they have sexy prime numbers....
I mean they had to right? No one who works out a prime number is getting it any other way.
The internet is full of filth. Sexy prime quadruplets.....
Put your 1 next to my 0.
Really? They ship them live you know.... They don't drop them dead in the farm yard and then decide to drag 600+ kgs of dead animal up the ramp of the truck....
PS - A cow has been a mother so she makes milk. You wouldn't want to eat cow as it's as tough as old boots.
I think you might mean bullock (boy with it's ball pipes crushed) or heifer (girl that hasn't had a calf)....
Rem that Boddington's advert from years back? It was a cow (girl) with udders, drinking pints talking like a bloke. Someone didn't do their homework as how many blokes have mammary glands......?
The Irish live beef market is very well regulated. A farmer I know had one of his cattle crushed by another in the shed whilst they are in during the winter. They kept the animal separate for a little while but he deteriorated and was dead after a few days. I figured he'd be able to sell him for beef. Nope. He had to pay the vet to produce a cert and pay a fee for a registered disposal of the carcass. So a fairly large investment lost. Technically there was nothing wrong with the animal but they have to be able to walk into the abattoir to their own death......
Re: There is worse
I hear yer.....I was on a split Eircom line so that meant no DSL and 28Kbps max speed on the modem.
Took over 4 yrs to finally get 'our own' single line that DSL could run on.....and a lot of hassle. But at least our exchange has ADSL, unlike some of our friends houses, although it is a technology that's over 12 yrs old now with a lovely contention ratio and big slow downs at peak times.....
Causing a stir....... fry....
I see the real reason for their pictures....

Re: How it might be installed?
Sounds like a great movie plot....
Wait - I think it might have already been done (to death).
Quit the whining.... At least you can buy them in your country at the discounted price via the Google store. Others (yes like me) aren't so fortunate.

It's free but it's just nasty and I avoid using it even though I have been forced to get a gmail account for google play. I just don't like the on screen setup - esp the calendar.... I've an android phone so the calendar is useful but can you use the web version and press the ctrl key to create a copy when dragging an entry? Nope. You have to open it, then use the drop down box to duplicate then save, then drag to move. Pain in the arse if you have re-ocurring events everyday that you need to manage and record.
