Re: Wonder what remuneration committees for the members of that committee he sits on.
When Ian Livingstone was awarded a CBE earlier in the year, The Guardian initially referred to him as both the CEO of Eidos and a former boss of BT!
Both the first two seasons were showed by Five USA a couple of years ago, although admittedly they were broadcast at about midnight. They did manage to show each season in the space of about a week though, as if it was some embarrassing piece of crap that they wanted to get out of the way just so they could show some more CSI repeats.
All hail Eric Lefkofsky the new deck chair re-arranger!
Re: Difficult to believe
You've obviously never played Skyrim....
You mention that the latest version of Fifa 14 is one of those games that will be available on the current and next generation consoles, but what's funny is that there will be a PS2 version as well. That's a mere thirteen years after the console was first released!
Robin Hood Tax
" the Robin Hood Tax - which will curb the excessive trading once and for all."
I thought the idea of the RHT wasn't so much to curb excessive trading, but rather to provide a fund to pay for the banking bail outs, both the current one and any future ones?
And what about the other one?
"The Dragon capsule has already carried two live passengers, one of whom made it back to earth without snuffing it." So only a 50% success rate then?
Re: I love steam
"downloading your entire steam library after something goes horribly pear shaped with the machine... not cool! although not awful if you have a decent speed you can leave it over night for the most part, unless you have one of those really annoying data cap things by your isp, admittedly I have only need to do this once so far, but still a pain."
Did you know that you can backup Steam games so that you don't have to keep downloading them? It's not 100% effective as sometimes Steam doesn't recognize the back up and tries to download it again, but it usually works.
Are you sure that Apple isn't actually number 7 on that list?
Re: I say screw-em. I don't listen to online radio anyway.
"Does anyone know how much Clearchannel pays to play music over local airwave radio stations?"
US radio stations don't have to pay record companies/artists for the privileged of promoting their records like they do in the UK.
The scenes with the chopper lassoing the Cessna and landing one on the tanker were in Licence to Kill not The Living Daylights. The mistake is understandable though as the film is pretty forgettable, as the Gladys Knight theme tune is just about the only decent thing about it.
I love you but...
Great. I wonder which web pages will stop working with this version? Using Opera is like having a child that you love dearly, but you still have to admit that it can be an annoying brat at times.
Is he going to invest his £87m in one of those Icelandic banks that he recommended?
It's not just about the wages/hours
But after doing your 12 hour shifts did you then have to go to a cramped dorm with eight people in it, or to a nice dwelling with family/friends where you had your own private space?
Make it so...
Funnily enough there was a Star Trek: TNG episode called Force Of Nature which was about this theory, so I wonder if rather than having "re-examined the maths of the Alcubierre drive" they really just watched a DVD box set of the show while they were stoned?
Do all of those who keep commenting about how they prefer CDs because it doesn't have DRM still think it's 2005 and not 2011? None of the legal download stores that I have been using for years (Amazon, Play and others) have DRM in their music downloads.
Casting Couch Blues
I heard a rumour that Kate Beckinsale only got a part in this film because she slept with the director.....
Title goes here....
Great, so now they can kill hostages from even further away!
Sectarianism traded in for racism?
Now that they've stopped attacking their fellow Irishmen to a large degree, they do seem to have turned their hatred onto ethnic minorities in NI, so this story does not surprise me at all.
Keep going well...
It's funny that I knew that it would be a Shell petrol station before I even read the story, as something similar happened to my Dad at a local Shell station and the credit card company said that it happens a lot to their customers.
If you want a non-geek friendly version of Linux then try Mint. I was a Linux skeptic until I tried it and I have installed it on a 4 year old Toshiba laptop and an Athlon 3200 based desktop without any driver or setup problems. It runs DVDs,mp3s, CDs and video files out of the box without the user having to fiddle with configuration files.
