Aren't they the arch enemy of the mysterons?
>Well, as the old saying goes - Americans learn geography from war. Seeing as they have never gone to war with the Aussies, how can they know where Australia is?
The CIA knew where it was when they destabilised the Australian government. It always makes me laugh when the yanks bleat on about democracy while getting rid of any democratically elected government that they dislike. Too many to list so here's just one: http://www.williambowles.info/spysrus/cia_australia.html
I'm not seeing *any* images.
Will it play The Blue Danube?
"But what BT has done is incremental."
BT got £16 million from the Scottish parliament and upgraded our exchange to 512kbs. The scheme was codenamed "Exchange Activate" but should have been called "Rip-off the tax payer".
Luckily I can now stream video if there is no rain and it is between the hours of 1 to 5 a.m.
At this rate of "incremental" I'll be dead before fast broadband is available here. :(
Nope, it was Lisbeth Salander. Every fule kno that.
Also, ooops! (see above)
In my case it's the BBC who'll be losing. I'm one of the freetards without a TV but who uses iPlayer. That is I used to use it because these days my internet is too slow to stream it. So I won't be buying a TV licence, sorry!
BTW, BT is my least favourite company, they are total ***********!
Yup, I abandoned Skype the moment that Microsoft bought it. I do not trust them.
>>Spongers. If you don't like their revenue model, don't use them.
Exactly, I don't use them, view them or go there. I also block *all* adverts for security reasons. Your "industry" is borked.
This guy seems to have got off to a good start, scroll down to see the screenshots.
Known here as a crock o'shite
I bow to your superior knowledge and that 120mm barrel pointing at me.
" there's one where through some freak but nevertheless physically possible coincidence I turn out to be immortal."
Unfortunately that Universe has a habit of collapsing on Wednesdays :(
Crikey! This makes British Telecom look like amateurs.
Is all that Trump crap made in China?
Maybe you had to be there, I'm glad that I was not.
I use Chrome for similar reasons but on Ubuntu 15.10 it crashes a lot. Example 1: Log into bank, and get a "WebGL has crashed, continue or reload?". Example 2: Log into Plex and after streaming some movies and quitting I find that Chrome had actually crashed at the login screen (the auto fill password is where it goes wrong). Maybe these problems will go away when I get around to installing 16.04.
Chrome version 51.0.2704.106 (64-bit)
If only it were possible to make a Galaxy Quest 2. Star Trek is just USA in space :(
Do you think that's photons you’re seeing?
Meanwhile at my house, the video that I was just watching on the BBC news site stopped playing with a "Not enough bandwidth" message.
Which nicely illuminate my shed.
Grey Goo has just confirmed why I will never turn off my ad-blocker.
Hey, are you the guy with the bunker up Cloverfield Lane?
I agree that this experiment was badly done and perhaps should not have been done.
These butterflies cheat ants by pretending to be one.
ElReg needs to have a new unit of disinformation/bollocks. I propose the "Gove". So "Instead, if the spacecraft successfully enters Jovian orbit, it will be descending into its fluffy clouds." would qualify as about 0.2 Goves.
AFAIK European trucks and trailers have side impact bars to prevent this sort of drive-under crash.
uBlock Origin does not let me go to CNET, says "Badware" whatever that is.
"that can launch from a ship, deliver weapons, and return, "
deliver weapons"? Shirley that should be "blast the crap out of someone"
Now your birthday or Christmas present buying dilemma is solved!
Back in ye olden days was the chain of Wimpy Bar. they sold burgers and had cutlery made of something called metal. Then came in the media a big story of how McD was coming to the UK. They came, I went, it was crap and AFAIK it remains crap.
"popular sites including motorcycle.com, autoguide.com, and mothering.com"
None of which I have ever heard of! Presumably they are USian.
All the Linkedin invites that I get are marked as spam, MS just wasted a lot of money. Also, only Linux used here!
I went there and just got this: (Is dreict similar to Scottish rainfall?)
"File Not Found. Please turn on client scripting or browse with a browser that supports client scripting to allow the 404 url dreict feature to work."
"Mars boffins reckon they've found seasonal found patterns in Mars' dust storms."
Too many founds!
>>People still keen to leave the EU?
When you see clowns like Boris and Farage saying "leave" it's probably better to do the opposite.
I backed out of installing Firefox when it asked me for my grandma's maiden name (slight exaggeration). Seriously, I thought that I had been hacked and shut down the phone.
That title is supposed to be a joke. Maybe you have not yet grasped the subtleties of British humour.
The day after the referendum Alex Salmond said that the "No" voters were tricked. That's like calling them stupid. No Alec we were not tricked, after all those years in the planning you had no plan for the Scottish currency.
Next up Nicola Sturgeon says that she will keep working for an independent Scotland. What the fuck use are these "leaders" when they first insult and then ignore majority of the voters wishes!
In a nearby town there's a guy called "Bob the builder". He hangs around the pub doorway seemingly doing business deals on several phones. Unfortunately they are all imaginary :(
I studied Latin when I was 11 and 12 years old and that's about all that I can remember of it :(
Judging by the thickness of that tankard's walls I can imagine that the Trading Standards officers of the day would just beat a cheating landlord around the head with it to get compliance.
Cheers, by some miracle it's already Friday here :)
Dear energystar, what you smoking?
Phil Mocek should try a FOI request for the indemnity (if any) offered by the makers of these meters. If they are hacked by terrorists a whole lot of damage could be caused by repeatedly switching on and off multiple houses.
So if the makers T&Cs state " We do not guarantee that these devices are fit fit for purpose" or maybe "We accept no liability for any damage caused by this device" then we need to know. Who pays when it all goes wrong?
On my old Nokia 6310 it would tell me when a SMS had been sent. This is important because where I live sometimes a SMS will arrive 24 hrs. after being sent*. On my new "smartphone" it only shows when it was received :( Well duh' I just heard it beep so that when it got here. WHEN WAS IT SENT!
*Oddly, If I send a SMS to New Zealand (in the other hemisphere) it will arrive almost instantly.
Today, President Trump decreed that from now on the internet is to be called the Trumpernet and everybody who uses it has to pay him. Why he had a pencil in each nostril has yet to be explained.
>The panic response didn't stop the Wolverhampton school machete attack a couple of months later.
A machete is not a gun, WTF are you on about? Did some nasty law stop you fondling a weapon?
What you have to do is this;
Roughly determine where the leak is.
Get a bucket and a screwdriver.
Position the bucket and using the screwdriver make a small hole in the ceiling.
This will allow any water to drip into the bucket.
If you don't do this your ceiling will collapse.
That would be expensive, whereas filling a small hole would be cheap.
You owe me £50!
A Spaniard asks an Irishman if they had a word similar to mañana. The Irishman replies, "Yes, but it doesn't have the same sense of urgency".
I drove my Quad system up to Cambridge and they re-valved it, fixed a pre-amp problem and re-built the electrostatic speakers and then posted the lot back. Cost? £180!! That has to be a bargain, even in 1983.
To my eternal shame, living in Germany in 1987 I flogged the lot for £500 :( Why? That was to buy my first PC, I should have kept the stereo. <exit stage left, gnashing teeth>
They're like a dog suffering from ADHD on a bouncy castle that just had the contents of a ball pit dumped in it.
LOL, I nearly spat out my whisky and we know that's a crime. (Got home early on a Friday)
