Lots of people have degrees, many have more than one. Does not necessarily mean that they are any good at anything in the work place. What is wrong with working at a hotel? One of my friends started working at a hotel and is now finance director of an international hotel chain.
Sell it to me
Perhaps it because I a bit long in the tooth, but if someone is trying to get me to buy something I expect them to sell it to me. You know the carrot, oooh buy this because it will do this; quicker, better, less errors etc. All I am getting is "move to Windows 8 because XP is being pulled". Great incentive! So just what is better about the latest offering? Do tell, don't be shy.
Re: Don't forget
Speaking of foreign shores... What you also need then is an automatic flag slider (Think 007 number plates on the Aston Martin DB5). This could be linked to the GPS and programmed to change when crossing the border. We don't want our hero Playmonaut to be banged up for illegal entry.
I like Virgin(s)
To put the other side of the coin I have the combined router/modem/hub/thingy from Virgin and it has been perfect from the day it arrived. Full house coverage, no problems.
I cannot get rid of the vision of an ISS astronaut opening a window and chucking a handful of small cubes out and then carefully closing the window. Bizarre :-)
So having migrated your mail system once, your organisation presumably made the wrong choice or the perimeters changed. The phrase "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence" springs to mind. I also foresee blood on the carpet; users are involved :-(
Re: most of them looking younger than the apps on my iPhone ?
If it is not Mole Station then what is it?
I think you may find that Lemmings have the patent on "Plummet". Please cease all use of the word especially in relation to gut wrenching free-fall.
Re: Guns won't work, so let's look at alternatives...
Low budget re-enactment....splutter! Any lower budget and the actors would be paying to take part.
Re: And the Eadon memorial award goes to. . .
Didn't know that he had passed on.
River Song being brought up by aliens and then killing her husband?
10 November 2013 - 23:50 CET
Contact with GOCE was made once again from the Troll station in Antarctica at 23:42 CET. The central computer temperature is at 80ºC and the battery is at 84ºC. At an altitude of less than 120 km, the spacecraft is – against expectations – still functional.
This may sound like a strange question but why not use Windows Backup? Or is that too simple? Just point it at whatever drive you need to back up to.
Re: Rip Out....
I have never known any of the providers rip out the previous connections or indeed their own when swapping over tenants / owners. Witness the masses of redundant co-ax cable from both Virgin and Sky strewn around the door frames and skirting boards of most flats.
Re: Here's to hoping it lands on Brussels!!
Have an "o".....

DAB - Could be better!
I would love to use DAB as my main source of radio music as when it works it is great. Between my house and the transmitter is a long line of brick houses so the signal stands no chance. FM is fine though. Have 2 DAB radios. One is connected to an external aerial, works fine, the other does not have an external aerial connector so is either a door stop or connected to FM.
Agree with the earlier comment about the design of the DAB radios, why do they all try to look "trendy retro" and fail?
Please don't talk about "Thongs", "motherboards" and "balls" in the same comment please.
Thank goodness keyboards are repairable still! :-)
Is there any payment for dossing in an embassy? If not might try that the next time I am in London for a long weekend. Choice: typical *** star London hotel for £120 a night or a free stay at an embassy of my choice....mmm tough one.
Paris Hilton cos she isn't against putting it up for free.
Greens, peas and things.
The problems is as I see it is this. All the Greens ever do is say "No, you cannot do that" I have never come across a Green positive quote ie. "You cannot do this but doing this would be better and more effective".
1) You cannot put a barrage across (name your nearest estuary) as it will harm the environment. Excuse me, but if we don't tackle global warming the environment is fucked anyway!
2) You cannot build wind farms as it damages the environment and harms birds. Excuse me, but if we don't tackle global warming the environment is fucked anyway!
Re: Extra large cargo bay?
Will it have the fluffy dice?
Re: Standardised connector
Or a car power socket....
I bought 5 TRVs for £25 from Screwfix.
Re: Best Tablet in the World?
I assume that they are sheep...Baa!
Sorry about the Linux icon but it is the only animal in the pot.
I once saw a large German Shepherd dog make a lunge for the next door neighbours moggy and the moggy just lazily turned round and slashed the dog 3 perfect grooves down it's nose. I have never seen a more surprised look on a dog ever.
Good PR though as we are all discussing it...:-)
Is that 25% of all business by volume or value? Big difference.
Re: I think.....
What does your wife have: Tin foil pockets? Tooled up lizard? A bogan time portal? An enormous pair? A knocked up a kitchen stool?
Hang on I might have spotted it :-)
@Shrimpling Well done :-)
Re: Ted Danson
Laurence Fishburne had already done that :-(
Re: I don't like it!
I for one have no objections to a world with clean air and water, and that in it's self is an admirable goal. I am just not convinced that climate warming is solely attributable to mankind. I didn't say mankind is not having an effect just not 100% attributable.
Root = Route, liberal??? There is no point in suing the people who don't make money. Apart from these basic errors your post is a poor troll. Please make more of an effort next time :-)
Re: Looking down ..
Shouldn't that be: Hell, life's good in Canada? :-)
As long as a peice of string
I think that NASA and the BEAGLE Team for that matter missed a trick here. Why did they not tie a piece of string to the back of these buggies? They could then have measured how much string has been spooled out and that gives the distance. Low tech wins every time! The BEAGLE team could have pulled back their crashed lander to find out what happened to it. A secondary function would be to aid communications in that a couple of tin cans could be attached to the string so that any Martian, Alien etc. could just speak to us. Wow!
All hail Murph!
Re: "clear blue bathroom sealant" WTF?!
Especially the "blue" bit???
Re: Typical Management.
It had an arrow on it. What more do you want :-) I suppose it all depends on the orientation of the bit of kit when it was assembled.....
The coat with the natty black arrows design please.
One of the more impressive failures, complete with blasts, bangs and (assumed) Russian expletives.
People assume that your FB profile is true but anyone with any amount of sense is going to tweak things or just tell porkies. "It's the internet, it must be true!! Ha!"
If you want to read anything in 1,000 + years time print it to quality paper with quality inks. Think of the manuscripts of old :-) Anything digital/analogue/optical/laser forget it!
Re: An interesting thing happened
After the first 2 lines you have it all. I didn't know Asus had perfected Ai.
More importantly, I want to know where I get my free Brazilian from?
Podule = A round of drinks and accompanying portions of chip buttys, esp at Friday lunch times. Viz; Go get the podule in, or Oy! it's your turn for the podule.
What could be more El Reg and could easily be incorporated into The BOFH (The PFY reluctantly got in the next podule).
I read the statement having it's tongue firmly embedded in the cheek.
Troll icon for those who took the bait :-)
He's been working with us....
The hell he has!
Strange that the Commission stopped the work after the wedding. If they really had teeth they would have stopped the whole thing that day. Just at the point where the official says "does anyone have any objections to this couple..." That would have made him choke on his $9M
Is the woman with the suitcase masquerading as a handbag the S or the L model?
Re: What I want....
You guys are all missing the point... Yes, I can get a phone with bluetooth. Yes, they have digital hearing aid compatibility (T setting). The bluetooth hearing aid adapters are about as ascetically pleasing as a brick and require the hearing aid to be permanently set to the T setting which effectively means I am completely deaf :-(
The bluetooth hearing aids are mostly bluetooth earpieces with sound boosters which are cheap crap.
What I want....
My hearing is not good so I have difficulty in hearing my phone ringing, yes I can have it on vibrate but that means I have to have it in a close pocket. It is not always convenient to have my phone in my pocket so something that transmits to my hearing aid would be useful. Anything out there? A dual bluetooth/digital hearing aid would be just the ticket!
