It is crap
Or pod pod. (as in the Invasion of the body snatchers)
Not only the ads but also the "one weird trick" or "Sponsored Stories" links. Obviously they are bogus click bait and I can only assume that bad things will happen if I click through.
My ad blocker is on permanently for all sites, the advertising industry cannot be trusted.
What we want to know is what happens when you poke a black hole with a stick.
Spend an hour or so creating a fancy letterhead with some (forgotten) DTP software and press "Print".
The laser printer data light starts to flash and you realise that you hadn't saved the file. An hour later the printer is still flashing, nothing has been printed and Windows 95 has crashed, losing all your work.
I'll put that in my diary.
.....so anyway, I'm up in a tree and I look down and see this rat creeping up on an elephant. Apparently he had some fantasy about getting off with one. So this cow is drinking at the water hole and kinda dozy in the midday sun when this rat shimmies up her leg and starts humping her. I'm kinda thinking wtf! so I chuck a coconut at her to warn her. She lets out a yell and you'll never guess what that randy rat says. "Am I hurting you darling?"
Didn't Coca-Cola try changing the winning formula?
Over on the BBC they report, "Minecraft creator Markus Persson, aka Notch, tweeted to his 2.4m followers that he has cancelled his account."
I bet that heads will roll.
>... IR illumination of keypad? Maybe slightly warming the whole pad would do it?
But then squirrels would nest there :(
Thanks for the links
As a smoker who is try to quit could you point me to some sites that sell a decent product. Thanks
You just reminded me, last year I was eating in a restaurant when a woman arrived. The smell of the copious amount of perfume that she wore completely ruined my meal. It totally overwhelmed the smell of my food. Bah!
As a way of remembering a great film and a great actor I propose a Tuco of flaws. OK maybe it does not scan well, how about a Senteza of flaws.
To save you the time:
Hey! Where is the Android lusers icon?
It would interesting to know if the person who donated the skin cells feels their mind going as the brain grows. Perhaps it would begin to manifest as a feeling that they have a sibling that they have never met before. I'm not sure of the ethics of this experiment but it does make me feel uncomfortable so maybe it is wrong.
Last resort, look up the name of a board member responsible for customer relations and write them an actual letter.
I wrote to the boss of Sainsbury's, Lord Whatsisname, when their phone billing system cocked-up. I received a nice letter back with a voucher for £25. That was of not much use, their nearest store is 120 miles away. Then they set the bailiffs on me. I never paid the bastards!
You could try Bona Law but AFAIK they are too busy with their criminal practices.
On my Moto G running 5.0.2 I am unable to switch on GPS without Google wanting to run Google Assist which I presume wants to log any SSIDs that it finds.
There is a Catch 22 selection window where if you choose "Don't show this again" the "Disagree" option becomes greyed out. Choosing "Disagree" results in a warning message that says that Assist has to be on.
"High accuracy" my arse! This is just Google being greedy for data.
I'll wait until the next generation of Ubuntu phones are out before dumping the Moto. I would definitely not recommend buying an OnHub.
Hacking Team staff appeared to accept the Ethipian government’s justification that the surveillance was “lawful.”
Can't trust those Ethipians!
In the West after a similar explosion $company would "find" their stock control on Pastebin. $company says "Look! This proves that we were hacked and it only shows 7 tons of cyanide". This is shortly followed by "After thorough investigation we found that an evil hacker set the coffee machine to overheat so we are not to blame and won't be compensating anyone".
Or something like that, YMMV. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhopal_disaster
I would like to transfer much money to your .moneygrab please be replying to me at 419.ng
Or maybe it will be like the Swiss coffee beans that Starbuck has to buy. Alphabet license the fonts that Google has to use. Cost: One use of one character = one cent
A review using some version of Linux would have been a welcome addition. AFAIR a full install of Xubuntu is 4GB and will run quite nicely on an Asus eeePC 900. It also only takes half an hour.
Man gets mumps but drops mother and U turns
How would I know that "California Surf Fever" was copyrighted until after having downloaded it? Upon discovering this I would of course immediately delete it.
ffmpeg -i old_project_leader.mov -vf "transpose=1" new_project_leader.mov
Blurting out some offensive crap is possibly excusable when you are drunk but not really a good idea when sober.
A businessman gets a cab for a short trip. A screen lights up and with a list of all the dodgy web-sites he has visited. The price of the trip has increased by 1000% with an "Accept this price? Yes/No" button.
A politician gets a cab for a short trip. A screen lights up and with a list of all the dodgy web-sites he has visited and a man in dark glasses asks him if he'd like to change his vote on some trade deal. When he agrees he still gets whacked by a massive price hike!

Holy cow, the price tags on those Surface Pros make Apple Stores look like pound shops.
Just press the Windows key and start typing the name of the app. Works super quick for me and should get anyone going until a patch is released.
Just like I've been doing on Ubuntu for a few years.
Best of all, Classic Shell is available as part of Ninite, so it just gets installed along with all the other default required third-party software whenever I build a system
This is what really pisses me off! Being charged loads of money for an OS that has no useful utilities. Coupled with the fact that Win10 would appear to be spyware I think that it should be avoided if at all possible.
It seems to have been designed to leak. Read this, it is taking a while to load the page at present, maybe a lot of folk are realising how bad the situation actually is.
I bought a Moto G 1st gen last year and it updated to Android 5.02 a few months ago.
I also think that it is time to root my Android phone, Google is becoming more annoying than useful.
It's strange to think that in 2015 a Raspberry Pi running some version of GNU/Linux is a more stable platform than Windows on a more powerful device. I certainly will not be buying anything with Windows pre-loaded.
It's not just wool, they can eat plastic and rubber too.!
As you can see, I have trademarked that phrase. Please pay me $1 each time that you say it.
One quick search and here is how to get the MacBuntu look. I just use Unity 'cos I'm too lazy to change anything other than the wallpaper.
I manage this by deleting every Linkedin invite that I've ever received.</grump>
You could easily make a blimp float forever in Jupiter's atmosphere but the part of most likely to be struck by lightning would be the radio antenna. Solve that problem and we're good to go.
The Vikings used ravens as a method of seeing over the horizon. Let the raven loose and if it cannot see land it has to come back, if it sees land then follow the bird. There is no reason that early humans did not discover this simple navigational technique. It might not work if you're on a raft but a canoe with outriggers could use paddles I suppose.
It is the brainchild of leader researcher Chen Chen of Carnegie Mellon University, together with Daniele Enrico Asoni, David Barrera, and Adrian Perrig of the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, and George Danezis of University College London.
All of whom have sadly died in freak accidents involving presentation fountain pens.
They have that his ego is so immense that it is forming an impenetrable shell around the Earth
I'm sure* that the BBC's total reliance on Flash has nothing to do with spying on their users. But I spent some minutes wondering why the hell a script from an USian company called mpulse was trying to load.
Now I cannot use the BBC for browsing the news, I might as well go elsewhere.
What are you going to do when the computer says that it's going to fail in 48hrs?
I was on a runaway 2000HP boat in a harbour. The stupid throttle/gearbox controller had got confused and was programmed so that in an error situation it would put control to a certain station. The problem was that no-one was sitting at that particular station and the throttles had been knocked forward.
It would have been better to program the the thing to put the engines in neutral and throttles to tickover if an error is detected. Lots of damage was done and the manufacturers denied all responsibility for it but did have a new "improved" version waiting in the wings.
AFAIR that's the model that should never be taken into a desert. If the air-con pump seizes there is no way to re-route the drive belt to bypass it. So then you die.
Elon stuffs his strut!
Anybody know if pre-bomb cast iron is worth more than just its scrap value?
I have about a mile of 9 inch and half a mile of 4 inch pipe laying around.
Luxury! We only had lumps of coal to write on and the teacher sat behind an upturned barrow :)
Well done the New Horizon team! I was half expecting the probe to slam into some orbiting crud. Now we need to send another to get images of the "interesting" side of Pluto.
