There's one hope I have...
that the Wanklevosses sink in everything they do.
You don't think Apple already have an highly paid team of shysters on retainers already?
There is no "in fairness to xxx" (whichever multi-billion company is in question at the time) - they subvert and pervert taxation laws, they overcharge, they (Apple) do not (unless forced to) comply with consumer protection legislation in whichever markets they operate, they are just not nice and too big.
I would love to see some of these companies broken up into totally independent businesses for their various "products".
Sorry, this was written after lunch (hic) - it probably makes no sense to anyone other than my shrink.
if they view my guilds' comments in Neverwinter then I guess there will be 550+ arrests on the books.
We're a small (only 550+ members, not all active) guild but love taking the piss out of each other; the enessay can read into it what they will, but we're only playing a fucking game - although I'm sure some comments about taking down the big bastards with my new missiles (most of us are running with the new hunter/ranger archery class) could provoke them into a first strike against Lord Neverember. Fucking Orcs - or should that be Norcs or Narcs?).
It shouldn't be too bad...
Aleister Crowley, Israel Regardie et al are long dead; any current form of the Golden Dawn are likely to be American imposters trying to run it like the money-making scheme called the Rosicrucians.
Probably the DVD covers with the warning them that sharing may cause an itchy infection.
Re: Fat Freddy always gets burned!
@ someone talking about Fat Freddie - it was always the cat that got burned - one of the best cartoons was Fat Freddies cat falling several stories whilst saying "it's okay we always land on our feet" then the next panel shows the cat with concertined legs as he landed - classic - i laughed so much i dropped the bong, shoved my head in the bucket bong and swallowed all my stash in one go.
At least i could cope with it all those years ago - 30 years on and even passing a resinous pine tree gets me stoned.
I wouldn't be surprised...
if the "health" industry had him bumped off.
I've got several 1994-era Zip drives if you want them ;)
It's got to be..
will I be able to get a couple at PCWorld or Argos?
Re: That awesome Tomorrow People theme
Don't forget "Sky" - another great HTV-produced kids series.
I couldn't help but...
I couldn't help but think of Carry On Spying ;)
"I am Doctor Crow. You are surprised? "
"Yes, I am! I expected you to be a man... or a woman. "
Re: That Ass. Principal
Isn't that Meatloafs' passport photo?
Re: Will they also force...
an interesting analogy, but surely a manufacturer should be able to market their products in any way they see fit (as long as my ad-blockers can zap the buggers)?
Re: Will they also force...
I fully agree old chap - and in addition to Pepsi they could also add bottles of Hobgoblin.
Will they also force...
my local car showrooms into displaying and selling models from other manufacturers, I find it so hard to buy a VW when I'm in the Ford showroom in Bristol?
Re: I wonder
powered by windows?
Re: Can anyone remember...
Thanks <spez> that was it. Have a beer old chap.
Can anyone remember...
the title of a MotoGp or World Superbike-styled racer? I used to waste my lunchtimes from Unisys at the Crown in St. Nicks market Bristol, supping on a Newky Brown and shovelling coins into the game.
I can't forgive them...
they made me redundant in the early 90's from the Bristol office when I turned down a move to Milton Keynes - the office wsn't closing then, I think it may have been constructive dismissal - but at the time I was so naive concerning the machinations of the IT industry.
So all gun-owners in the states are members of militias?
An anagram of Lewis Page...
Re: A few additional suggestions
Yep - a decent implementation of Traveller would be great.
Re: And next week...
Pulse-eight - sorry, I should have added the "joke alert" icon.
Re: And next week...
So sorry DJGM, did you damage your funny bone over the weekend?
And next week...
Tivo will find someway of suing the hell out of them.
I hear "Golden Dawn" mentioned I can't help thinking Crowley and Regardie have been reincarnated as Greek fascists.
"but really, here in the US we don't care when it comes down to it."
In that case just get all your red-neck morons back into your own borders and leave the rest of the world alone - we don't give a damn about you.
The icon? Maybe that's washington dc
The Repuglican was...
probably worried about losing his collection of gay porn.
Just a chuckle...
Flattery won't get him anywhere other than gaol.
Susans' husband does it again - a brilliant comment from Frankie.
"Don't panic everyone! #Xboxlive is just having a little doze! The teams are currently trying to poke it with a big stick to wake it back up!"
What condescending bastards - that seems to be typical now of help-desks that continually screw customers over with meaningless drivel.
Did anyone else...
read the contact name on the job advert as "krash me live jobs"?
A quick wiki gives:
Early when the Stony Brook Campus was located in Oyster Bay, the team was known as the Soundmen or Baymen. Throughout the 1960s when it moved to its present location, Stony Brook sport teams were known as the Stony Brook Patriots. In 1994 as Stony Brook anticipated a rise to Division I in the NCAA the nickname of the team was changed to its present one today, the Seawolves. The Seawolf was said to be a mythical creature from the Tlingit tribe which brought good luck to those able to see it.
Where can I puke?
"HP is committed to helping the city of New York build an effective and innovative 911 call center for the city’s greatest public servants – those at the front lines of emergency response every day. "
I guess HP have been watching too many U.S. crime series and trying to buy in to the sickliness that pervades American politics: if you can't slag it off in public, talk nicely about it and no-one will know you're really sticking a finger down your throat and wishing you were European.
give a shit about this.
"it is all included when you turn on your PC for the first time."
and the second time you turn your PC on - it crashes?
No problems at all.
That immediately reminded me of the Onion News Network report "Sony Releases Stupid Piece Of Shit That Doesn't Fucking Work" - a classic.
Thanks for the memories.
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Why I thought there were 14 days in a week escapes me - not having to have a regular INR would give me 1/14th of my week back.
Too many blood tests
After having had a pulmonary embolism in 2004 and then three more blood clots in my leg recently I have put on warfarin for life - this is a royal pain-in-the-inner-arm as I need to have INR checks on a weekly basis, which means half a day waiting at the doc's for the phlebologist to take my sample and send it to the hospital for testing.
Anything that would give me 1/28th of my week back would be very useful and means I won't end up with an arm looking like a smack-addict.
It still won't turn me an iphone user though - but hopefully the tech will be available to all - the benefits should outweigh any use by a company to patent it.
condominium is a type of single-element latex, but I couldn't find it on the periodic table.
just experience what Tex Murphy saw in his investigations. What more proof could one want?
I've got an old "extension" pump if you want and you could probably have the Mrs' old breast milk pump as well.
Sorry Mr/Ms/Mrs Doubly Trademarked...
but I am not a die hard fan, although I am a fan of good British comedy; "Back to Earth" was excruciatingly bad and did a great injustice to the memory of the first few series.
There are many examples upon which we can draw that show that sometimes a death really should remain that and resurrection will only bring pain, embarassment and a wish that that relative should have been left to rest in peace.
This had better be worth it after that dismal three-parter recently; sometimes I wish I never bother about newly made series/films/whatever and remain happy with my memories.
