They need to cross-promote...

Re: For people who don't get laid.
My comment above was for Belardi, not Destroy All Monsters (though it works for both!).
Re: For people who don't get laid.
You must have very unusually-shaped bodily orifices.
You are joking right. A full-on sky survey would cost more per year than the anual maintenance of two high-end fighter planes.
Flappy Bird is the harbinger of the apocalypse.
I'd have thought,
the melting point of plastic a little low for hell!
Re: Nuclear = Red?
Ah, but because we had (have?) a habit of building volatile and intrinsicly unsafe types of reactors, simply because these types have weaponisable by-products, we have now got used to the idea that ALL types of nuclear fission reactors are inherently a disaster waiting to happen.
Re: Insignificant cause of mortality.
Or... funnel all that money into the health system?
Nah. That might help disadvantaged people! No party funding in that!
Stop knocking homeopathy!
It is a known contributor to the forward-going health of the human gene pool.
I know it is all very PC, in this age of 'everyone gets a trophy so no-one feels left out', but stupid people dying by their own hand in ways that don't take undeserving others with them is, ultimately, good for the species as a whole.
Perhaps it was this guy!:
That's 1.5 times my current system ram!
Facebook becomes IMVU on a huge scale?
Re: So the allotment owners are horrified...
Forced to pay for an 'extra'* 0.1 sq m.
* the allotment size won't have changed in reality, but become bigger on paper, which is where bills are calculated.
Re: Buying less because what they've got lasts longer?
Power supply capacitors are usually what goes in a modern LCD. I have dozens of screens from XGA to FullHD at work salvaged from eWaste piles and roadsides and fixed for a few dollars (I prefer the visual arts students be creative with kit the school hasn't actually paid lots of money for!). I will still buy a new monitor for my primary, but if you have hobbiest-level electronics capability or better, LCD monitors with a good few more years in them can often be fixed by swapping out any bloated capacitors. I presently have a 3:4 success rate on this. Plus one light box made from a backlight with a genuinely dead LCD removed from it.
Yes. I used to run my home PC on a 2-3 year upgrade cycle but the last CPU+board upgrade is now over 4 years ago and getting more distant with no sign of flagging. I need a new bottom-end-of-the-top-tier graphics card sometime soon, and since my 27" 1920x1200 (nice large dot-pitch for that sitting-back-from-the-screen experience) LCD is starting to exhibit warm-up glitches after 5+ years that will likely soon be upgraded to 2560x1600. So I appear to be on at least a 5-year+ upgrade cycle.
Re: "Lightbulbs, nylon tights, razor blades, can all be made to last years or decades"
That is also why (pre-LED) traffic light lamps had such good running times compared to house lamps - under-powering them was worth the greater energy-consumption due to both maintenance costs and road-safety reasons.
One of the books (not TV AFAIK) had quite a bit about living-furniature GELFs, and the equal-rights movement surrounding them.
Re: Might want to re-think the name
Oh for the days when I had a v-arse!
Or it didn't happen!
...there would be a raisin.
"This new graphine-substrate CPU is just the shit!"
Happy to report
My Debian box is not running WindowsXP :-P
Given away in return for an unofficially guaranteed future board position, more like it.
Older generations were fearful of an over-populated Indonesia invading Northern-Australia. Looks like Indonesia may be the place for FTTP-envious Aussies to 'invade' instead.
"This is a Trademark / Contract issue. If there weren't any restrictions associated with the use of the Trademark then you would be correct. As it is, you're an idiot."
Which is why, incidentally, Debian users such as myself are webbing on 'IceWeasel', a TM-stripped version of FireFox as Mozilla's trademark policies disagree with Debian's definitions of Free-Software.
Each read-through reduces my total knowledge.
This sounds like a job for....
After many years of theRegister news-re-enactments, I only have eyes for sexy sexy PlayMobil people!
Nuke us from orbit. It's the only way to be sure!
Transport them to Australia!
They can then steal all our copper so we can get a real broadband installation.
(Yes, I know they wouldn't bother nicking last-mile runs, but one can dream, dammit!)
Re: Please feed these poor parisites.
Yes. Feed them!
A nice generous portion of Wormex(TM).
A real shame.
Though I fully understand the need to regulate UAV activity in populated areas, that is some really beautiful footage, demonstrating considerable talent.
Hope he is sentenced to...
- complete a UAV operator's licence, including flight application processes.
- community service producing several hours of (this time appropriately authorised) quality footage for the city of Nancy.
Re: Everyone feels like this.
Just like the NSW government here in Aus colloquially referrs to the Newcastle-Sydney-Wollongong government.

There's a hole in the 'net like a great black pit
and the vermin of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren't worth what a pin can spit
and it goes by the name of (dot)London...
At the top of the hole sit the privileged few
Making mock of the vermin in the lonely zoo
turning beauty to filth and greed...
I too have trawled the 'net and seen its wonders,
for the cruelty of trolls is as wondrous as 4/chan
but there's no place like (dot)London!
Spam is old-hat
Today's hilarity is 'targeted' advertising. For all the information these companies claim to have on me, I have only, in the many thousands of supposedly targeted adverts tacked into sites I visit, received one such advert that had any relationship to anything in my life. Half the time they don't even get my gender right!
Re: Would this really be a problem you could complain about?
Especially in response to a head comment that is just a throw-away slag-off of lawyers.
Aren't these couple of loons...
bringing the whole Lawyer profession into disrepute?
Re: New Barbarian Manifesto
Sounds just like corporate managers voting themselves bigger and bigger pay rises. But that is obviously not going to damage the corporate sector in any way.

Admins of the world: whitelist the real TLDs and block the rest.
Chances of that?
Million-to-one, I'd say!
It means if you turn your head enough to the side, the graphs all show average global temperatures is staying steady!
