Kim Jong Un risks all to save a sack full of kittens that have been thrown down a mine-shaft by an evil capitalist.
It works fine in FF 34.0
Didn't I just read elsewhere that Windows 10 is just a fancy bootloader for Ubuntu?
As these parchments have been handled by umpteen humans how do the boffins avoid contamination of the DNA?
Or maybe the sheep were already contaminated :(
I'll get my coat, it's the sheepskin one.
>Are they seriously telling us that the Sagittarius B cloud is made of Skol Lager?
Or any "beer" made by Tenants :(
Children under 12 should be playing outdoors in the garden, that's the only place they can smoke these days.

Or more likely in the app.
It appears that the attack on Sony is just the latest painful lesson for all enterprises
The lesson is that if your OS is not a "productivity suite" but instead costs millions in lost productivity, then change it. This poor choice of OS could quite possibly send even a large business to the wall.
The beancounters should do the sums.
A friend told me her tale of woe yesterday.
After years of paying her BT bill in the name of her ex-partner (Joe Bloggs) she got annoyed at constantly being called Mrs. Bloggs.
BT assured her that the account name could be changed at no cost. Now her phone number has been unnecessarily changed and she has no internet connection.
A nice man in India has told her that to fix the problem the road will have to dug up. WTF!
"Wearers will receive a "gentle tap" on the wrist when a message arrives on their mobe and can connect with "favourite people in some new, spontaneous ways not possible with any other device".
Reading that, I just spewed!
"Home Depot has forked out $43m to quash spot fires "
They got hacked and caught fire?
I have not used Windows for several years but if I had to I would need Total Commander. The free version has the least annoying nag screen in existence. It's a clone of Norton commander, Midnight Commander etc.
Actually, anything is better than Microsoft's Explorer!
I started to read the article but drifted off...
It looks a bit heavy, 2,571.87 kB worth of pixels to lug around
"So what will he buy with the proceeds? A jetski, he hinted, although there are "not many places to use one in southern England".
So he can join all the other annoying dicks on the water? Clueless!
The article also forgot to mention that the Chillblast has the option to have no OS, saving £41.66.
If I chose to do that I could up the memory to 16GB for only £58 more than the original price. How well it runs Ubuntu would good to know as well.
In 1902 a company called Fanbois & Sons started to sell gold plated mop-buckets. These differed from the usual oval design in that they where rectangular with rounded corners. Another innovation was that instead of the standard universally interchangeable mop-head they used a propriety threaded mop-head. It was an immediate success, those who bought Fanbois had to keep buying their mop-heads from them.
Everybody else just kept using their standard mops and the others became jokingly referred to as Fanbois.
Just thought I'd give you the background.
tl;dr Azure can't be seen when there's a break in the clouds.
In my experience* New Yorkers are so dumb they couldn't tie their own laces. When their apartment catches fire they will run up to one of these booths and start yelling at it, "Fire! Fire! Fire!" whilst waving their hands around in a suspicious manner. Then someone will shoot them**.

Reindeer flavoured stock cubes. For all your festive stews. Yum!
(Pedant disclaimer: Cubes because they come stacked in packs of three)
Were the boffins using this simulator or did they fool children into thinking that it was just a game?
Yes I know it is a radio telescope but let me use an optical one as an example to clarify my question.
With a small telescope I could see the whole of the moon and record an image of it.
With a big telescope I would see only small amounts of the moon but by moving it I could stitch together a picture of the whole thing.
So is the image of the planetary disc in the article recorded in one go or made up lots of small images?
I completely fail to understand how they get this image. Is it composed pixel-like by scanning tiny areas of the planetary disk. Considering the distance I don't know how you could aim with such accuracy.
But have a beer and consider me amazed.
Rather than talk about speeds why not use the ability to watch the BBC's iPlayer as a standard. In my house this is just about possible, most of the time.
Also why do the iPlayer devs think that everyone has a fast connection? There is no option to watch a programme in a smaller window. I would even prefer to watch a show in black and white rather than not at all.
In Scotland a new build house has to be pressure tested to ascertain if it is too leaky. You have to pay the Council £500 for this test. My neighbour's was found to be too airtight even though it has trickle vents on the windows and extractors fans in the kitchen and both bathrooms. So to get the house certified he has now got to replace the bathroom fans with continuously running fans.They cost £98 each! (They run continuously at 6 l/s and then increase to 15 l/s when the light is switched on)
So all the warm air from the air-source heat pump and underfloor heating will now be sucked out and wasted.
Don't they realise that people will just open the window if it feels stuffy?
Why bother specifying a massive amount of insulation in the walls etc. What a waste of energy!
The simple remedy to your problem is to give away your TV. I did it years ago when the adverts became too annoying. The top two culprits were for cars and shampoo.
Car adverts usually say, "This amazing family car can go really fast so you can wipe-out your entire family".
Shampoo ads., "This 5 cent product has <made-up_chemical_name> in it and is yours for 5 dollars".
Then just run AdBlockPlus in your browser and you're good to go :)
I took pictures of a neighbours house across the bay by attaching my Pentax SLR film camera to a 10 inch aperture reflecting telescope. Being by default F5, I got good results at 1/250 sec. I scanned the negs. and stitched two shots together to create a pleasing image of their property. I framed it and gave it to them as a present. One of them (the woman) said "Oh! you could have done that with a helicopter".
I replied, "But I don't have a ****ing helicopter!"
A classic facepalm moment.
Maybe things have changed but my memory of intercom type door locks was that they could be opened with a hefty kick to the door. The weak part was the attachment to the door frame.
Only this titanium stein can contain the awesome power of Helium-3 beer!
Dear Mrs. Elderly Relative, you have won a cruise in the Caribbean! Just send us your bank details so that we can sort out the administration fee.

>>NO ONE close to me no smokes,
You shot all your friends?
Where can I buy a decent answering machine that records to SD card?
That would be the easiest way to transfer the recording for editing.
Most devices seem to just have a memo function that stops after three minutes.
They're building it wrong!
That last person who said that to me got pulled to the floor and hammered. Blood was spilled. but it was not mine. Emma, go sue those sad bastards!
Is this going to be a fair and honest appraisal of a user's health or just flattery?
User: Siri, is my ass fat?
Siri: (does quick calculation....Height = 5ft, Width = 4 ft.) Oh no, you have the fairest ass in the land.
Mines the one with no candy in the pocket.
When they recently repeated the "I Claudius" series I missed quite a few of them, When I tried to buy a box set of DVDs from the BBC they were not available.
Do I have to search for a torrent?
> and no sensible replacement for Outlook
You must be joking! When I last had the misfortune to use Outlook I regularly clicked the "Archive" button but when I needed to restore some emails found that it had archived nothing. POS
How to speak australians. A course for Indian citizens wishing to migrate. Very much NSFW!
>IE alien robots
They won't last long if they're running Windows, even the aliens in Independence Day got a virus and they ran Zghortsnix 9000
If I set up a camera and a dove flew down, pressing the shutter at the exact moment that Tony Blair was struck by lightning, I would gladly forsake the copyright.
Now I can has solar powered jetpack.
The only person saved was the one wearing a woolly jumper, all the lycra and shell suited people were left to die.
How about a BT parody portal?
I might be able to get revenge for all these "A special BT offer just for you" letters that the bastards keep sending me.
BTW. Dear BT, I don't watch sport, I don't have a TV and I do remember Phorm.
My father taught me to never swerve for dogs because doing so you are likely to kill yourself or someone else in another vehicle.
A tourist here recently swerved for a rabbit and put his whole family in hospital.
P.S. The only dog that I've hit survived the impact.
Paris wouldn't swerve for a dog ----------->
So I can go to a foreign city, walk into a bar and find all the
characters, loonies folk from my local bar are already there.
Maybe I'm missing something :(
He should hire Max Mosely as his internet spokesman.
Oh wait! No one can find his email address* anymore.

I wanted to open a co-op account for my elderly mother but she did not appear on any database as she had been a housewife since her marriage. All the utility bills had been in my father's name. They wanted all sorts of original documents before proceeding. Later I asked for the documents back and was told "We don't know where they are". Most likely they are in a landfill somewhere just waiting for an identity thief to find them.
