I'm personally in favour of the statement 'It's the Interwebs that are causing global warming", as when I was a young lad, before the advent of the Interwebs, I seem to remeber that it was the coming of the next ice age that was all the rage...
Re: Jolly good work.
I do hope the private individual in question is not suffering with some form of cancer, as we all nknow what happens when cancer sufferers go for ride-alongs. BrBa.
real life emulating fiction.
The ability to use Facefarce/Twitbook and even the internet should not be classed as a 'tech' skill.
Damn missed it. I can't now say I had facebook withdrawal next time I visit my shrink.
Re: not very useful...however...
Shazam use fingerprinting methods that can differentiate between multiple version of the same track by the same artist so recognizing your many 'riffs' is not going to work, unless you get them to 'pop by' and fingerprint your riffs as well.
Re: Of course
Spent a while traveling with a girl who hailed from Whykickamoocow, which was the source of much merriment when meeting with other folks.
Re: Fish & Chips (for twins)
This and That for pets, it's great for explaining their names to people, e.g this is this and that's that...
Call me synical...
... but isn't this just a way for 1st world countries to wash their hands of the recycling issue? 3 years down the line and the responsibility for the recycling has been passed on to the 3rd world countries.
Re: Parking ticket is in the post
Parked? Looks as though it was left in the street and a taxi taken to the kerb.
Re: Karen's Replicator II
I'll second that, used it on multiple windoze OS, started with XP via Vista and now 7 and can't see any reason it shouldn't work under 8.
"The Quatermass Experiment", "Quatermass II " and "Quatermass and the Pit " all good early sci-fi, but the one I'm still waiting to see is "Quatermass and the Goon Show", should be excellent.
If only I'd know of the competition
I might have entered one of mine.
3 and a half sheds, 1 summer house and 1 childrens shed.
Is there really an 'alcohol ban' or is it it because the 'bar is quite high' and folks can't reach?
...plus a bit of foraging and you're into a profit deal.
Re: Wot no SGI?
'I especially liked the Indy, since the case split and opened along the main diagonal slice'
Did it? I never saw one that did...

Gas them in their burrows, the gov'ment seems to approve of that sort of thing...
DRC for me then...
Or any other of the Central African countries... Western Sahara is nice this time of year.
Re: John Jay High
Whoa, looks like a prison, maybe there's a reason for the tags!
This is where hacktavist groups could come into their own, step up and help protect vunerable people against this sort of exploitation.
So why the little android 50s into the video?
I'm thinking that the BBC should maybe meet apple in court over the use of toroidal office space...
I wouldn't be seen dead on a bike like that, not that I'm a bike snob.
I suppose it'll bring Apple owners into the real world with the rest of us.
Who works on this project?
Are they the Bloodhound Gang?
Our post has been delivered to random houses down our street for ages now, maybe at last we'll know it's only our direct neighbours who we need to visit.
N.B. sarcastic thumb.
Oh come on...
Geordi La Forge has had these for years.
Very long blue touch paper?
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Re: Beta! - How much does it cost now?
Actually, quite a lot... they've just changed their business model.
How can you loose something if you didn't have it in the first place?
You're not a shill...
...round here you're just an Anonymous Coward.
Even if I was sat alone in my living room I would still not talk to the TV, now a mind/thought interface would be a much better bet.

now that just got me thinking...
Waawy the Woman?
Well attended courses?
"The average number of staff on each course was 851 for e-learning, against 81 for manual based and 104 for face-to-face."
104 people on a face-to-face course? Not really a course, more a lecture, I can't see anyone learning a lot in a class of 104 people...
Might be a strange and quirky country, I know I lived there, but they do have some common sense and nice cheese.
Feel the burn...
... I spent a £100 on fireworks last week so this would appear to be the next step in burning up my hard earned cash.
'Three political parties have joined forces to launch a proposed law (in Dutch)'
Why would the Belgians propose a law in Dutch?

I immediately thought of this video and how to amalgamate the 2 into some sort of useful something or other:
... to move house just to get better broadband speed.
WD Passport failure...
Just had to return a 1TB WD Passport as it failed. I managed to get back the majority of the content on the but it fails all the WD tests (software included on the drive, luckily I'd backed that up).
It's interesting to note that the drive within the enclosure is directly wired to the usb hardware and is does not have a standard sata style drive.
Well I like it...
If you ignore the price the one I have is a decent bit of kit, I bought a Tan coloured one when my missus bought me a Kindle for Xmas.
The light is good especially if your eyesight isn't quite as good as it used to be, and I find the fact that the light has the colour temperature of whitish LEDs rather than a tungsten bulb helps as well.
If you're feeling flush I'd say buy one.
'Old Rosie' get a look in?
“The Department of Health faces a major reorganisation of its top structures that will result in fewer Director General posts."
So how many Directors General does the Department of Health actually need?
It's a great shame that these high street white goods shifters are going down the pan, as where else am I going to go to checkout these electronic goodies before buying online.
Patenetly, patent troll...
IMHO all patent trolls will be first against the wall...
...it is useful if
you have more than one uncased Kindle around the house, if each Kindle has a different set of images you tend to know if it's belongs to you.
