Re: I can get excellent pics of ladies' anatomies for a few bucks...
You pay for fap fodder?
Re: Now she can start her own coder academy...
She did, Ross.
Or did you not read the bit about her being a founder member of Code Club?
P.S. Another director apparently resigned earlier this year for the same reason, according to a comment on her blog...
@ Elmer re: poached.
Knowing their reputation, I'd think pickled would be more likely...
Re: On YouTube
It's wobbly hand-held mobile phone footage from miles away.
A puff of smoke, and some white dots falling.
It is rocket science.
Re: Target too high?
So how much is Dicky B charging you to let your balloon take off from his bit of Murrica?
And what's wrong with just driving to an empty bit, and letting it go from there? They have quite a lot of it over there you know.
Or just smuggle the fucker into Spain, and lie about the motor if customs pull you.
God, I'm a tight bastard.
Target too high?
That's five grand a head for a team of six.
Are you going for a month?
Or flying business class and staying at five star hotels?
Or just planning on running up a mahoosive bar bill?
What would happen if Chuck Norris took up Morris Dancing?
We'd be safe from all other baddies.
Until next summer, when the hybrid Chuck Morris's arise from their mountain lair and
bore club us all to death.
I'm moving to a safer planet.
+1 for Saddam Nutella!
I'm stealing that.
If your Nokia 6310i needs a new battery every year, you might want to try genuine Nokia batteries.
My 6310i backup phone still runs for a week on its original 2002 battery.

Re: Recent Spamstorm
Not just me then?
Apparently, penis enlargement pills and slimming aids are what I need.
Strange, as the only fat part of me is my cock!
Re: Could be . . .
Except all the "bare skinned" creatures you quote have at least some hair, somewhere on their bodies.
Although mine is not as luxuriant as it used to be...
I blame the medication ;o)
This only works two ways...
1) Lack of "due diligence" on HP's part.
2) Dodgy accountants / accounts.
3) Both of the above.
Ok, three ways.
Re: It's likely to be Apple's first big flop in a long time.
I'll just leave this here...
Re: Once braked into a stable orbit...
So what are they going to use to slow it down?
Pah, I have a screensaver that looks like that!
The video is actually pretty good...
Turn off the computer, then turn it on again...
> I've done that, it still looks exactly the same. (They powered off the monitor...)
Ok, look for a large beige box under your desk. Press the big button marked POWER. Now press it again.

Support call received at stupid O'clock one night.
Shoot them all.
Time to call "Time ladies and gentlemen" on the cloud...
I'm afraid I really have had enough of this "cloud" shite. Unless your company has at least a Gigabit bandwidth to the net, and multiple hundreds of distributed workers or sites, just what is the bloody point of internet hosted data? And what about when your internet is "off"?
Locally hosted VM snapshots with local NAS and off site backup I can grok.
VPN (ideally with TPA) in to LAN for off-site workers, all locally hosted.
Reliance on ANY outside provider is just passing the buck...
But hey! Just move to a new job. :o(
Re: It's back... No it isn't... Site update.
25 June 2015. Update:
Via Twitter @cryptomeorg:
NetSol rushed to reactivate Cryptome. No deal. Henceforth only SM will be used to exchange information. To hell with arrogant dirty ISPs.
Cryptome has been dispersed. Files will appear expectedly and unexpectedly at diverse locations online and off.
Besides pastes, drops, torrent, implants, hides, Cryptome has over a dozen sites for dispersed distribution, more coming. Got means-methods?
By sites and outlets is not meant only online, current leader of dirty work posing as clean.
Re: It's back...
Welcome back John.
Nothing will change, except Coulson may soon be suffering from a sore botty.
It is good to see though, that all the other paragons of virtue have been acquitted.
You have to admit, they have a "valid" point...
But any company or individual placing their data in the hands of a U.S. based company is basically handing over their data for rape. For whatever perceived purpose...
But they said it was easy...
to port software between Windows 8.1, Windows phone 8, and Windows RT.
Would they really have lied?
What's even more amazing...
is that if you could hold a half millimetre dot at arm's length, you could hide ALL of them behind it.
Wish I could afford a lens like that. :o)
Re: flight cancelled
Just out of interest, have the told the playmonaut (Colin?) about his brother's untimely watery demise.
Perhaps it's better if he doesn't know...
Dear Mr. Not Spartacus.
You sick bastard.
May you burn in eternal hell, for your heretical deeds.
Bacon is the only true way to Heaven.
End it now...
@Farmer Fred. Re: (or fat)
Go on. You know you want to say it.
Say it LOUD!
@stucs201 Re: bacon cuts
I believe that what you describe as middle cut consists of a complete slice from loin right through the belly.
My best ever came from Shrewsbury market, dry cured, fatty belly, rind on, and smoked. 3 slices, pan fried, belly out, in a savagely hot pan for about a minute a side. served in a brace of freshly carved slices of still warm bread.
Oh, and Hammond's Chop sauce, or, at a push, HP...
Nurse, the screens!
Ooh, and some tissues.
Sorry about that.
And now, back to your usual programmes...
Re: exclusive rights to every colour in the visible spectrum.
I believe they belong to Messrs. Pantone Inc.
YMMV, but I don't fancy your chances much...
@ Michael Wojcik
Oi, I cut my teeth on an ICL 2904 with 64kB of core store the size of a fridge, and 10MB Winchester packs the size of a small planet, and it sounded like lots of fans running in the background...
Re: Overpriced, over-rated and over-valued...
Don't worry Don, my opinions will always be free at the point of use.
The other two, I leave to your discretion.
Overpriced, over-rated and over-valued...
They sound like a perfect match!
That hits the nail squarely on the head.
They have a "legal warrant" to listen to every call? So they have evidence against every caller? Smells like bullshit to me.
If you're not for us, you're against us.
Unfortunately for us, they have a total disrespect for the law if they think can get away with it, and the money to change the law if they can't, on their side.
Wasn't the Chinese Rabbit captured by the soup dragon, and fed to the Clangers?
I'd be chuffed to fuck if I woke up aged 30 years tomorrow morning.
Loving my G...
Except for the shite camera, it does everything I need, speedily.
Nice pared down Android install. Ability to disable (but not remove) pre-installed apps.
4G wouldn't matter round here, as 3G frequently struggles. SD card would be nice.
So, a worthy upgrade to the G.
The Economy model is obviously aiming at the last of the smartphone holdouts. Spend the extra tenner and get a G from Tesco for £99.
Re: may I suggest to the Vulture SPB
Sideburns on the Playmonaut?
Wouldn't add much weight...

You should have gone for the elReg Gold Subscription option. We see pictures, and get the news before it happens.

A pair of "treble baggers" if ever I saw one...
Not sure brain bleach is strong enough. Brain sodium hydroxide anybody?
Re: Apple don't have anything in the cloud? Don't think about data?
> It's trash compared to Google Music though, which has better selection of music, cheaper, better streaming options, free storage and scan and match.
And the worst UI ever. I disabled it immediately and installed Poweramp.
Re: I didn't understand what Bing was
And, until a couple of years ago, a brand of fizzy pop manufactured locally.
Sticky backed copper tape patches,(garden centre slug repellent type,) mounted on the fuselage, with springy copper feeds from your battery resting thereon? Virtually zero friction or resistance to sliding, and should easily handle the low current draw.
I can do you a drawing, but I hope you don't need one.
Crack on chaps.
Re: DVD-Audio ?? try VHS-HI FI...
I seem to remember my circa 1990 Aiwa (I think) VHS being able to take an RCA line level input, and record audio only at about 4 > 1 on a tape. eg. 8hrs music on a 2hr tape. Sounded fine into a Quad 33 into Yamaha PA + active speakers... 'Til a burglar took the VCR, TV, camera, cash, and my big rucksack :o(. But left the stereo...
If only he knew.
Re: – DOS 6.22 + 4DOS command processor FTW!
It was DR-DOS 7.04 + Hyperdisk cache for me.
Beat the crap out of MS's lame efforts. Three disk swaps to copy a 1.44 floppy? Yeah right.
Re: What was 2.0 really known for? @AC
No, it was because filenames were limited to 8.3 character format...
Re: Is it a joke??
@jzlondon. For me, sound quality IS the only criteria when evaluating AUDIO equipment.
Price also has a major influence, as, like Mr. Raith, I'm not made of money either. My current system, since my Quad 33 karked it, is a 30 year old NAD amp, driving a pair of 25 year old Linn speakers. Sounds bloody marvellous to my aging lugs, and the pair of them cost me less than a ton. Isn't fleabay great?
Of course, YMMV.
@Numptyscrub. You were lucky...
I paid £120 quid each for four 4MB SIMMs for my 486.
I've got a VHS sized case full of the things in my bits box now. Know anybody who might want them?
Icon? I was robbed.
