Phone and bedrooms do not mix - like the time I accidentally called my mum while I was in bed with someone.
This is the whole reason print media still isint dead
...Those classified ads in the back pages for 'massage' and 'executive relief'! We can't have smart phone apps coming along and stealing the very lifeblood of local newspapers can we!
I played programming Bingo once
It was very confusing - two fat ladies 88, yeah I understand that - but it got very confusing when the bloke plucking the balls out shouted - two fat fucks - FF! - programming Bingo uses hexadecimal in turns out!
Re: The greasiness of birds native to Surrey
Just to note, I am not thick (well not that thick) the first incident with the seagull happened in Kent, I am not so dumb as to think Surrey has a shore line - unless the banks of the river at Staines-upon-the-Thames is considered tidal!?
The greasiness of birds native to Surrey
I've actually once seen, and again once heard, bird on glass bonking action myself!
First one was seagull vs seafront sash window - the bird ended up dead in the light-well. The second one was an unidentified bird on a window in an unoccupied room. Judging by the huge smear of grease it left behind, I suspect it was a dirty pigeon as I am led to believe pigeons are greasy birds - do we have any Bill Oddieians here who can confirm the greasiness of birds native to Surrey?
Ban UK users from using it then
It will have an upside in that the internet will no longer be polluted by Stephen Fry's textual raw sewage.
Re: Silly old google!
I use XP - because frankly as far as I can tell, it does (well soon to be did) pretty much everything I need a computer to do and the more recent versions don't add any thing for me.
So why the f@#k would I upgrade? Because I wish to have less money, because I like wasting time installing apps and pissing about with hard-disks? No!
That would be like buying a Barrett home's one bedroom starter home and burning down your lovely four story Georgian town house because it's a bit old now!
Microsoft's and Google's view seems to be, lets just build a great big f@#king toll motorway through the site of your lovely Georgian town house so you'll be forced to live in a toy town Barrett shit box made of MDF and builders spittle! That'll learn ya!
People are still on XP because it's actually quite good (for a piece of useless shite) you should of made it more like ME if you wanted people to abandon it sooner!
Mine's the one hanging on a beautifully crafted mahogany coat hook in the hallway but which will soon be hanging on an IKEA plastic coat hook on the back of the living room door due to having had my house forcibly 'upgraded'.
What is one of those?
I have these bits of wall in my house that are quite clever, they are like normal walls but they give you the option of seeing through them, due to them being made from a transparent material. They are also quite smart in that they give you the option of 'opening' them, thus turning them into a wall that is temporarily non-wall like. Quite handy for letting in fresh air I find! And if none of this functionality takes your fancy, simply close it again, and use a special accessory called a curtain to cover the see through area. And there you have it! It becomes a plain old wall once again!
Oh yeah, they're called Windows! So Apple wants us to use their voice tech to control Windows does it!
"We will feed you beer, hug/high-five you up and down (pick your poison), give you merch and thank you mightily for adding to the big noise we are planning to make,"
Beer, hugs and big noises? What is that, an invitation to an orgy or something?
Re: The 'Thomas Pornin' attack.
I love a Tommy Pornin' in the morning!
Re: Failing it's GCSE geography?
Please don't knock geography it is a wonderful subject at school and college, I loved it - it seems to be a soft target for jokes a lot of the time, take the piss out of French instead, a totally useless subject!
As for the topic at hand, I have had this shit from Google maps myself recently - taking me to weird places when entering partial postcodes. As for solving this issue, they need a check box that let's you toggle on or off common sense, that should work!
...or just a dickhead ahahaha
I live in Surrey but am originally from Berkshire - does that make me a unicorn too?
I know someone who as part of his work, was acting on behalf of a client who was a former employee of that council. Anyway, this person I know needed some info on his clients pension, so he called up the council to enquire - they told him to go look in the bins round the back of ASDA and if he couldn't find it there, try the bins outside Lidl!
Re: keyboard please ...
I know, I can't imagine George Alogireahhh (however you spell it) saying "scientist have discovered a new species of monkey and bloody hell its got a huge blue arse!"
I could imagine Paxman saying it, but he is post watershed.
I have the soultion to this
Just ignore the trolls.
You should ignore what I just said I was trolling.
I believe I am right in saying that Surrey is the most populous county in Great Britain so it could actually be true that there are more BT shareholders here than anywhere else (excluding London and other large cities maybe)
Re: Takeup Proportions
Waitrose is really popular here in Surrey - I want Waitrose organic locally produced fibre! Shove it directly into my premises please!
Re: Buy an old N64 just for this? Naah
I've got that disk and a Wii and a Gamcube controller which aint been used for over a year, maybe I should go have a play later - then again I still aint finished Windwaker or Twilight princess - lol and you'd think from my user name I'd be more into it! hahaha
pop-up MS xmas shop
So are they going to be selling Windows 8 branded tinsel, XBox ball-balls and Office themed novelty light-up father Christmas ornaments?
I've been waiting for this.
"Not true at all" hahahaha, I'm going to need to start wearing Attends pads if you make me laugh any more than this!
OMG el Reg, you are like so totally liars and stuff, cos the Menshster says you are cos they've got SSL and encryption and they know how to google stuff and everything!
Re: Have you ever seen an animal butchered and the meat processed?
Clearly you cannot understand English mate..................
I said I do not find the process involved in making good quality meat to be disgusting. Good quality meat is never made in factory conditions and the animals have a decent life - makes their meat much much more yummier if they aint all stressed out. I actually clearly stated that some of the factory farming process are sick did I not?
Man made meat - what the heck is wrong with you - yes, synthetic, non natural meat however you want to call it. I don't want to eat that shit. Give me some man made replacement organs if I need them but I am not eating that fucking lame shit! You can if you want, I am sure your printed out roast beef will be lovely and full of flavour.............. I'll stick to brutally killing cows and eating their flesh. I am obviously the most evil person in the world for that arnt I!
Fucking most epic fail I ever seen here.. You suck mate.
Have you ever seen an animal butchered and the meat processed?
Yes I have thank you. There is nothing I find disgusting about the process actually. Some of the factory framing methods are however pretty sick, but good quality meet, no nothing about it turns my stomach at all. I am well aware where meet comes from thank you. I am not sure why all the downvotes - clearly you lot are happy to eat man made meat - I'm not. It's totally gross like I said. On the other hand, dead animals, blood, guts, organs - yum yum!
Give me tough chunk of offal over printed bacon anyday.
Oh man, reading that is making me want to throw up, seriously, that is totally gross!
I feel sorry for anyone who's in prison, school or eats fast food in fifteen years time. I would say go veggie but they'll probably be printing out carrots by then too at this rate!
Re: Cheap labour is everywhere
I thought for a moment you meant Foxconn were already running Medway Council! lol
I just went out, and across the street from the pet shop were a load of Trading Standards Puppy Swat team officers about to do an armed raid!
As I neared the said pet shop, I heard the commanding officer on his radio say "okay guv, were going in, over" and with that - the whole team, all 20 or 30 of them, with riot shields, semi automatic weapons, and small dog cages stormed the tiny animal filled shop unit!
As the officer leading the charge smashed the door down using a battering ram, he shouted through his megaphone "By the power invested in me by RIPA, I am conducting a test purchase of a small puppy on behalf of your local Trading Standards department!". The shop then quickly became filled with thick clouds of tear gas that, along with the terrifying screams and barks of human shop staff and live canine shop produce, spewed out into the midday street!
I thought it was slightly heavy handed to be honest!
I've brought up another one pardon the pun
Re: Cheap labour is everywhere
They'll be making iPhones here at this rate - Maybe Foxconn should buy up the Medway towns and turn it into a new factory complex - it will make the area more desirable!
Gets one over on all the competition!
Booze if you ask me, is the most dangerous drug in use in this country - the sheer numbers of deaths, assaults, broken homes, abuse, fucked up lives it plays a part in is why I hold this view. Along with first hand experience of what I call "drunk twats" who have done a good job of ruining parts of my life - thanks dad!1
However - I am not someone who wants it banned, blames it for all social evils, wants minimum pricing, or any of that bollocks. I also do like a nice pint or glass of wine, and heck, even occasionally have been known to get sloshed.
I want a sensible approach taken to dealing with problem drinkers, the question of booze advertising, health costs - not yet more ill informed legislation. WTF is up with drink, drug and health policy in this country (well most countries)?
Do something to stop people like my dad killing themselves with drink - upping the price aint guna matter - just means more kids go without food like I did so their alky parents can get their fix!
I don't know what the answer is though - maybe its to kill all politictards with alcohol poisoning.
Nitnetndo and Sony...
Make phones with D-pads, shoulder buttons and analogue sticks...
And do a cheap one for young kids too, as I don't think you're average 7 year old is going to be signing up to a bloody two year contract just so he can play Pokémon or whatever shit they like these days!
Re: Electrical fittings
Of course - MK are the Apple of electrical fittings arnt they!
My consumer unit is Crabtree though I think - I guess thats like having a load of Macs connected to a Windows server aint it!
Le Reg foreign desk,
That'll be google translate then?
Missed the reference to Tesco in the article at the end. I thought for moment posts from another topic were appearing - shame as I was looking forward to resulting chaos that could have caused!
Best scam ever!
Also, what's up with all the posts about Tesco in this thread? Are the forums on the wonk or something or are some of your readers often drunk during their lunch breaks? Seems like those posts were meant for another story not this one!
They do it because for a company of that size it probably reduces the number of customer support phone calls they receive per day by customers confused by or too thick to understand the password reset process correctly.
Either that or they just don't give a shit.
Re: As an Apple fan I'd just like to say.....
That's a point isint it - those old light-switches have both rounded corners and only one button on their face.
I've basically got twenty knock off iPhones stuck on my walls!
Re: .... New Orderly World Players in CHAOS bring Certainty with AIDefinite Vision.
I'm printing out this reply, framing it, and putting it on the wall!
I've met one the scientists involved in this...
I shook his hand and it was all sticky for some reason!
Re: What, I wonder, would have happened...
Pretty much the same thing but all the furniture is from IKEA so the sofa bed he sleeps on would break after a weeks usage.
I can't wait until I can go to my GP and get an annual injection of Norton Internet Security for Human Brains! That'll be fun - especially the chronic upgrade reminder cluster headaches ten month's later!
Re: As an Apple fan I'd just like to say.....
I really like the light switches and plug sockets in my house, they are very snazy. They have a retro 1950s roundedness to the corners and a satisfying clunk when you plonk a light on. You could say, that on many levels, they just work! Maybe I should find out who makes them so that I can become a fan of the company!
Re: Aggravated Homosexuality?
It is more common for straight guys to cross dress I think? Dunno, seems that way, maybe that should be a question included on the next census.
Sorry that, was meant to be my standard crap joke that I always post when someone downvotes a comment I have made in which I mention I am gay - I don't think it actually works though!
I think I might be a repressed heterosexual.
Re: New Orderly World Players in CHAOS bring Certainty with AIDefinite Vision.
Blimey, that's a big arse link you put in your comment mate!
