Well despite the recent comments, it does look rather good and admittedly very early stress tests are positive compared with both 7 and Vista

Re: Computer Games Movies
Have to say I enjoyed tomb raider. Having said that the vast majority of my cinema experiences have been on all to frequent transatlantic flights. deadens the critical skills.
I think you will find that only specific sections of parts of the commonwealth are in favour with UKIP and similar.
Re: Microsoft usually does..
Actually, despite some initial teething problems (overheating - which were dealt with by MS, post notional warranty), the XBox has been a decent platform. Decisions on charging for certain services that were free on the PS3 - maybe not so good. Their meece by the way were based on an HP technology.
You mean you have a geographically locaL library in the UK?
Re: The Sun
Given much archeological evidence I think you are on to a good bet.
Re: I think I'm getting old :(
Actually 8.1 running on my son's Lenovo laptop/tablet is really quite OK.

Cats get away with murder. Large ones doubly so.....
Why not? Always gloriously and classically decorative - unlike Paris :-)

**** And has anybody else noticed that the Haynes manuals aren't anywhere near as good as they used to be? ***
And winters really seem to have gone downhill as well. But my space shuttle Haynes manual is still giving value for money :-)a
Defence, especially against an 'insurgent' (OK not great equivalent, but worth thinking about) will always be more expensive. I am surprised the ratio is so low.
Don't believe it - the shadow is in the wrong place - another fabrication from the establishment
Re: What goes up
Can't say I would be caring either way….
Not an entirely accurate headline - at home and scrap metal?
you can defend the perimeter - and should. Assuming it will never be breached is the mistake (as a number of ant and bee colonies have discovered to their peril). Strong perimeter and strong internal protection. The point is that a new threat might be temporarily slowed by perimeter controls while the internal network is updated/reconfigured.
Sorry lads and ladettes - superficially nice but not a good read or way to read. To much flash (obi not Adobe) leas to a reduction in functionality. NIce try though. I see the Grauniad is making the same mistakes - actually rather more.
Surely aa bag of acid on or in hamster? Where is QC these days?
See Total Recall (at least the first - never saw 2)

And in other news
I think Philip [sic] Snowden was a traitor to his country and a thief but I actually think he opened up some of these bigger issues in a way you can’t do [otherwise].
While in the UK many people consider Blunkett a traitor to his country, a thief, a liar and an hypocrite. I could go on. Oh and of course Blunkett never supported any larger issues than his wealth and vanity.
Re: IT angle? Who cares?
Along with several very good and long suffering friends I rebuilt a series 2 landrover while a student and fitted it with a Rover V8. Ten years later and having lived across Europe where it got a lot of attention, the arrival of a bairn made it necessary to "be sensible" as my mum said, sob sob, sob
Made up for it more recently with a Caterham 7 :-)

Small bang, lots of H and He?

And just think of the children (and more recently the terrorists)
Re: Attention All El Reg Readers...
Well that is reasonable. Tablets mainly consume not create. Shame but understandable why that part of Microsoft undervalued consumption. Now if the Xbox division had been given tablets.....
Ours works very well. 5 doors, occasional short journies with 4 adults, reliable and very fuel efficient. And no, I don't have shares in Toyota
We had a stunning multi player version of trek running on an ipsc 32 (and then 64) running in in 1983 - not much of a market then! Written in Fortran (McFarland compiler) and C on the Sun workstations
Re: 3rd generation computing!
And exactly which flavour of Fortran?
Not to mention
Modelling things that go very very bang, and as importantly for their sponsors might fail to go ban at all (or not enough)
I have to agree, service at Apple has always been good for me - replacement of an intermittently faulty device with no questions asked other than something that might be used to repair/refurbish the device. I have also found that service in John Lewis has been equally good (and have bought standard Apple devices from them - same price, 3 year warranty on a couple of MacBook pros
Yeah he and his Mate Obelisk encouraging mindless Roman bashing, and as for that hound Dogmatisk.......
Re: Will cartridges will cost more than virgin unicorn blood?
My Boy, have I got a deal for you. Almost genuine unicorn blood (slightly used virgins) at a knockdown price. You can even refill each Virgin....
There is a boot but it’s tiny and most of the time its half full of rolled-up roof. I did take it shopping but could only buy half what I would normally and even then I had to leave the roof at home.
On my 20 year old Caterham, the roof rarely travels - it really is awful and getting into the 7 with the roof on is a contortionists wet dream. Instead I rely on a flat cover which unzips around the driver, and travelling at more than 30mph which takes most of the rain over the top. That and a prett waterproof cabin. Insurance is negligible as I don't expect to do more than 5k a year (a good year). With a 1600 ford engine, I get 45mpg If pushing it, and 55 in normal use. A blast - inexpensive to buy, run and maintain. It also gets grins all round.
"This is a car where paint is an optional extra and the rawness is exhilarating."
Mine, 20 odd years old, free from road duty, actually economical (1600 Ford Engine) is a delight. Having said that I do almost as many mile per year on a bicycle as I do on with the Caterham - but both are very enjoyable.
Re: Here's Hoping
Personally, I will do a "Shaun of the dead" and wander like an undead, moaning occasionally (about the lack of 4g coverage).
If there,s one thing I learnt from Shaun of the Dead then it,s "start at the Winchester" - no need to do the zombie walk

More importantly, what is the Air Speed Velocity of a swallow?
What type of Swallow? I know, I'll get my coat....
Re: First iPhone late
And it was worth the risk walking a few hundred meters (assuming you were not crawling) back on the M 4 to find it? Either you have a very poor view of your self worth or its a little unbelievable
"It's hard to swallow the suggestion that Apple would, merely on a matter of principle, mount a terribly expensive challenge to the Patriot Act and similar laws. There's little tangible reward for Apple for such an outlay."
If you want to grow rather than decline outside the U.S. then there are very tangible rewards. And pushing this might even result in Apple relocating.
Out of interest do you have any evidence of that?
Re: No law against asking somone a question is there?
But surely if you want to check your polling there is a gold standard when results - by voting area- are announced, at least in terms of elections?
I never bother changing it. Forces a little thought :-)
Ehh? I thought all Reg readers knew that pliers, wirecutters and a torque wrench were the preferred approach. Teaspoons my foot - although if you wanted to scramble your Faberge egg, a hammer would be just as good.
Re: A Spoof?
I remember when I first started ha gliding being introduced to the Jesus pin. As in noticing it is coming out while in the air :-)
Re: Embarrassing friends
Yes as a fruit enthusiast who can tell you something about my TCO, with some evidence to back it up, pieces like Fry's make me squirm. Along with spurious claims - first Mac to be imported into the UK for example (dirty I suppose) he is an embarrassment to the human race even if relatively harmless
For stats can I recommend R. A great tool - with lots of additional packages. While I use Mathematica every day, I find R the place to go for my stats work

Oh dear - you probably don't even drink it (let alone spell it) Whisky
Re: I'm fine with Scottish independence if it's what they want.
Absolutely. Screw us locals in favour of more hair! Independence could be great but don't believe Salmond will deliver political renewal.
It is difficult to work out where he wants to go but public ownership of Oil and Banks (sans sense) with privatisation of public services seem to be the order of the day
Re: 'hoarder' ?
Of course, that is what the bridge is for. Get up with it (or even back by a few K years :-)
