I assume this quiz was made up
by the same people who make up those quizzes for Cosmo.
"...so every time you go to the lavatory it is vitally important to get a receipt."
Yes, I guess I too will stick with Oolite for now!
In the end,
people should just switch to a better phone company!
In my experience that is already the slogan of every retailer in the whole world.
Re: So why Starbucks?
The economies of scale in these types of business are at the marketing end.
Re: TSA probably nicked one
I would assume some of the 'toner' was leaking out.
The laptop and desktop are dead.
Long live the workstation and portable workstation.
I like the term 'workstation' as it defines where these devices still provide for a strong need - work (ie, content creation). I agree that laptops/desktops for consumption-only is generally overkill these days (outside of hardcore gaming, as the only exception I can come up with off-hand).
I can see good, solid, not-overly-cheap (but-worth-the-price) workstation-class machines going on for a long while yet. The cheap-end will likely be eaten up by mobile though.
I believe the term we are all looking for here is "enemy of the free world".
Re: Hold the presses...
He said he found academia, not middle-management!
Re: No compelling argument?
Most Australian politicians consider Australia an informal extension of the USA anyway.
Just call us the Australian Republic of China.
We might get decent public services then, at least.
Re: I have a small metal key
Well, it's good enough for the TARDIS!
I can recall at least one baddie (probably Tom Baker era.) cussing in exasperation "this lock is too primitive for my equipment to open!"
Re: Utopian drivel
I am tempted to change my name to "None of the Above" and run! I am pretty sure I would at least get my deposit back!
Re: The internet is made by people...
regardless of gender.
Out, damn'd spot! out, I say!
Re: desire to stick the knife in to those politicians they dislike
You mean 'all of them'?
...Gotta buy more knives!
Re: New name needed.
I assume the origional source of 'Trolling' came from the art of long-line fishing. Not disfigured sub-bridge dwellers of popular folklore.
Best make the space domes movable!
Yes! Just like our habitations here on Earth!
That's nothing. Outgassing. Don't worry about it.
Re: Why are we limited to just two?
Can't speak for MS, but my *nix box allows an arbitrary long list. 18.104.22.168 is my fallback if both my ISP's DNSes trip over.
Starting over from scratch.
Re: Android named apps
Lucas was fairly forgiving about these things. But now it is Disney you have to watch out for!
Re: Bloke turns up for an interview...
Well if they aren't advertising to blokes too, they are missing half their market!
Re: I'll tell you one thing
But spunking three orders of magnitude more money on new ways to kill people is all okey dokey.
Unfortunately 'think of the children' doesn't cover their education.
Nah, I like a /leeeeeetle/ bit of formatting in my text.
Not so much that it inteferes with reflowing the text to whatever screen/resolution I choose to use, though!
"Just reading page 129 of the EULA again."
Good thing I only read things made available in HTML.
In the end, if these people really cared about saving lives,
they would be working traffic patrol.
Not publicly-funded James-bond-themed LARPing
It put a smile on my (flu-ravaged, today) face.
Re: I saw a (on the surface) farily well-branded 'Woolworths Customer Survey' phish.
Not far wrong!
I saw a (on the surface) farily well-branded 'Woolworths Customer Survey' phish.
Though I am pretty sure Woolworths don't operate out of eastern europe.
And I get the same emails on my work email (named) and other work email (department section). Nether of which have any reason to talk to a supermarket, bank, etc.
On the other hand, I spent weeks binning the official internal bulliten because HR decided to issue it from a 'cloud' service rather than via the internal domain (morons!).
Of course he has. They are his inspirations.
Why do they have to be female agents? I am pretty confident the majority of males in the world find this behaviour reprehensible too!
Could be worse!
Could have been William Blake!
Qt a 'Programming Language'?
What is it with TheRegister this week? Are all the IT-journos off sick from hurried-curry and temps filling in?

Re: Geological Sources
Not a geologist myself, but I am thinking are the geological sources of methane on Earth a result of life getting caught beneath changing geology???
Obvious industry shill is obvious!
That these 'research groups' think no one will notice the glaring gaps in their methodology is rather insulting to humanity.
Workspaces in Linux predate both Gnome and Ubuntu by a good many years!
The previous government was, of course, largely indistinguishable from the present one. Or the one before. But I fail to see how that makes it alright.
I have yet...
...to find something on GMaps that isn't at least 50m from its true location (3 blocks away is more typical).
Well, there is always MineTest
Re: Boring is good.
"Local Supercluster" was already taken by the supercluster just north of Coma (off the map shown).
Hope they were insured!
Well, for broken or otherwise 'unfit' goods, one presumes the game would have to be provably sufficiently unplayable or varient to advertised expectations to pass the definition (which numerous games have proved to be over the decades).
For un-wanted items, if the packaging (DRM) is unopened (never-activated) that should be fair evidence of not having played it.
I don't think Valve (or any other software supplier) is being asked anything unreasonable here.
