Just maybe we, the customers, will start to get the hint that Hollywood doesn't give a rancid fart what we think of their favorite sons so long as enough of us keep coughing up the cash.
Re: Phones are harder than PCs
I'd tend to disagree: Phone users just haven't been hen-pecked for decades into accepting shoddy crashy data-lossy software as inevitable and acceptable, so are less forgiving of such.
Yes, I tend to read the whole thing as nothing more than marketspeak for "IE9 uses more of the newest Windows APIs from the HTML5 renderer." Which is a bit expected, to say the least. But if they have no other way to differentiate their product, they have to go on and on about what they have in the most conveluted pseudo-tech babble possible.
They all think they are every(wo)man.
They spend so much time pretending they are 'one of the electorate' that they start to assume that every perversion and corruption they are capable of must be common to the whole population.
I think it is just
that there is so much slagworthy tech about these days. I get quite fed up with /that/.
Blanket over the camera.
couble of bricks under the axels.
Nick the wheels.
Since I know very little about guns.
Without the visual cues, I might wonder if he put the gun on back window of his truck. Twice.
While I recognise Emergency Services Personel are far too ethical to do so,
wouldn't it be nice if their services could be denied to anyone known to be involved in intefering with their service to the whole community for nothing more than personal gain.
"What, your big mansion in the forest is burning down with you in it? Where? Sorry, I missed that, the comms is breaking up. Fssthhhhsssshhhhssshhhhh."
All very well,
but the place of worship in question was happy to take the money for hosting the polling stations, they can't then turn around and say "But..."
Also, I believe the signs were on the fence outside with all the others - it is illegal to post election signage within a certain distance of a polling station down here. That would place the signs abutting and facing on to public thoroughfare, though the fence itself is likely church property.
Re: Penalty points... so what can you buy with them?
I believe they are good for Papal Indulgences.
Re: Erm, I always prefer spaghetti.
Oh noes! I see a split in the FSM church comming!

What's the new Google CE's Page rank?
Yes! (We wish!)
I have no problem with adds - easy to ignore the irrelivant and once in about 10,000 one that is of actual interest to me comes up.
What I object to is unnecessary cookies. I use the ask-then-white/black-list feature on Konqueror and nearly 100% of sites that have no reason at all to place a cookie for /my/ convenience or benefit request to place one (or usually several). That annoys me. Tracking whether I want closed captions or comments on or off is good. Anything else is not in my interests so get lost!
Which pompous twit above are you referring to?
So many to choose from!
Don't know about doctors
but the portable rescuscitator we have in the medical kit here talks you through how to use it. Obviously it isn't instructing on drug dosages, just where and how to attach the electrodes, and timing the CPR appropriately for how many people are assisting. It is just to keep the patient ticking over until the medicos arrive. Not something you habitually carry about in your purse, though.
The OP was thinking of:
RE: "Perhaps you were thinking of Microsoft"
The OP was thinking of Microgoopleonykia-every-other-multinat-tech-company. They are all in it up to their rectums (which are just behind their teeth, FYI) as much as each other.
The radiological sources can be traced fairly accurately,
so yes, this is being accounted for. In fact three of the "high" radiation sites near the reactor quickly turned out to be radiation from decades-past atmospheric nuclear testing. The other two are quite clearly from the reactor itself. Keep in mind "high" here is still not very, though I wouldn't build a house on it, it isn't at this stage considered anywhere near a risk to those passing-by.
That is why you will find my posts...
...habitually (ie, unless I forget) referr to Microsoft's OS as "MS-Windows". Or even "Microsoft Windows" if I'm feeling unusually energetic. As opposed to "X-windows", which are one of the things you will find on my own PC at home.
(Notice I grew out of using the dollar sign for the 's' several years ago - it was fun for a while, but in the end saying a public company is primarily interested in money is a bit like saying a shark is primarily interested in eating seals.)
Bit like the Queensland Floods
A disaster to be sure, but some of the TV reporters were getting visibly flustered by the effected locals just getting on with the clean-up rather than running around howling woe.
I imagine the Australian parliament's network was being read long before.
Even the Ruskies had a multi-gigahertz 'air vent' on their embassy roof decades ago.
And as for that huge 4-support spy-antenna slap-bang over the middle of the parliament-house roof!
