Re: Oh look...
"You have pointed out that they have incorrectly re-arranged the deckchairs on the Titanic!"
Unlike endlessly nitpicking an argument in these forums which, as we all know, is earth-shattering important.
Re: Oh myyyyy....
But of course it's the other monkeys that are dangerous, not you.
"I was talking aloud to myself. A habit of the old: they choose the wisest person present to speak to"
Hey! it's funny
Re: Industry is hurting itself
Indeed, how dumb it is to build laptops that work for years? Don't they know they should just collapse a day after warranty expiration?
Re: How about
That would be to easy, if the example were to catch on all those political nuts that make a living on criticizing the pharma industry would be out of a job, and we can't have that, can we?
"that's good practice."
I doubt it.
Actually I am pretty certain that starting from scratch will make them spend lots of time fixing bugs that were already fixed years ago in the current code.
But then refactoring code means reading and understand code written by other people and, really, where's the fun in that?
Re: Barbra would be proud
But then, we are not buying the phone.
"He might as well just give them silly names."
And that's why v4.0-rc1 is actually called "Hurr durr I'ma sheep"
The numbers are there for legacy reasons as some people insist they are significant.
But then, some people are just weird.
Re: Red shirts
You didn't get the reference? Really?
Well, ok then.
Re: "All your attentions are belonging to the google!" is the motto
I don't remember when I first noticed ads, I must have been four or five years old and watching Tv.
Yet people still expect me to be surprised when they mention how ads work.
Weird, isn't it?
Re: Se Habla
Anyway, it would be: ¿Habla español? ¡Es muy fácil!
The rationality of males is way overrated.
Check a football/rugby/whatever match if you don't believe me.
Or, if you are into that kind of thing, an OS flame war.
For centuries agriculture depended on it.
Was he expecting a worse film in the few months left of the century?
Yeah, Ok, I'm leaving.
Re: Self Importance?
"the first steps to Globalisation."
Never heard of the Silk Route?
Re: No need to be a dick.
"But if enough people kiss your arse even when you are a dick".
Well, when you talk about "pompous, arrogant and just downright unpleasant" you certainly know what you are talkin about.
Re: Why land at sea?
Without the gulf stream warming us up, Europe would be uninhabitable.
Something that I learned many years ago reading a story in which Uncle Scrooge diverts the gulf stream to warm the land he had just bought in Greenland.
Re: head scratcher
Or, like a neighbour once told me "Google doesn't work"
Re: I can give you one good reason: dollars
And yet Iran has been selling their oil in euros since 2003 without being invaded by the US.
Oh, wait! There is a cake in the photo
"I like the fact IE has a functioning menu bar by default"
It does? I opened it to check that and the menu bar only appeared after I pressed ALT
And yet, their engineering was amazing
Re: Arguing over nothing
No, they did not 'invest'
If they had, they would be entitled to share the profits from the game
Re: Us poor Apple fans, can't help ourselves being tricked.
That was a great fanboy parody
Re: The Moore's Law question result ...
They may have thought it had something to do with the speed of the CPU, it seems to be a common misconception.
Re: I Thought the Reg was an IT mag.
I bought the Black and Decker one a couple weeks ago to clean the factory electric cabinets.
It's not really suited for such a hard task but I am almost done by now.
Re: Dunno whats worse
Nowadays they are the same.
Re: Replace anything with "Lucas" written on it
In Belgium they light the highways at night, apparently that doesn't leave them much money for the actual road.
The night lighting is awesome though.
Re: Money Talks
Both Apple and MS pay dividends
Re: And you wonder...
And I thought it was because at Bill Gates' meetings there used to be someone counting the times he said 'fuck'
Re: The Linux community has always been this way.
So the Linux zealots had been suggesting a solution that, you agree, would be perfectly suited to solve a real problem.
And the head of the department put you into the 'zealot' category even you didn't deserve it.
Therefore the fault is with zealots like you.
Ok, makes sense to me.
"I found out very quickly those users liked to Insult new users who couldn't do simple task"
A link to a thread in which you were treated like that would be nice
Re: Anonymoist Cowyard OK then...
Are you seriously blaming Google because your phone includes an app from their biggest competitor?
Re: Not a problem. I hear beer is up!
Yes, yes, yes, we know:
Gold is hitting 5000$ next year
(It's always next year)
Re: If i had a vote
In case you really don't know, the promise is that Scotland would be expelled from the UE.
Pretty much the same way Alger was when they got their independence from France
Not that I see the point in voting for independence as long as you are promised not to be independent.
Re: Take my money! Oh, you're too busy...
"Run up the Apple Store app"
How does that work with first time Apple buyers?
Re: Solution or problem ?
If he did, the mistake improved the article
Re: Thanks for the neocon talking points, El Reg!
So, if you can't tell the difference, why do you frame your story calling the Ukraine government that?
You enjoy being ignored?
Re: Thanks for the neocon talking points, El Reg!
What's the difference between the way Putin's government works and a "borderline ultra-right" government?
"Oh how I love the readers of the Daily Mail..."
Why do political nuts feel the need to insult the 'opponents' every chance they get, or they don't get like this time?
Is it because they are nuts?
Nah, don't bother explaining it to me, I hope I will never get it
