Re:all wheel bearings loose, the transmission howling, the second round of engine oil seals leaking,
Ever heard of a thing called a "service"?
And as for "I wouldn't worry about a turbo", is that because it's not the turbo that usually fails, it's the turbo bearings or oil seals?
Generally taking something expensive with them. (Like the rest of the turbo... Or the whole engine if you're really lucky. (Thanks Peugeot))
Give me a nice belt driven blower any day.
Re: an audiovisual interactive format for music that can't be pirated
But Paul, music has to be converted to analogue to be reproduced by loudspeakers, ergo, it CAN then be copied...
DRM doesn't work, and only pisses off legitimate owners.
Re: "carrot cake is not a real dessert"
But it does count as one of your 5-a-day.
Two if it has an icing carrot on top.
@Bill re: VOTE!
The BIG problem is not the voters, it's the choices.
Would you like to bend over? Me on top? Or would you prefer nice comfy spoons?
Any way, YOU'RE FUCKED!
P.S. Sorry for shouting. :o)
And NO, I don't mean vote UKIP. Splitters!

Re: Still missing critical feature
In my experience with Dysons, the motors burn out rather quickly.
£20 on Amazon, and half an hour with YouTube and a long shank #15 Torx and you're sorted.
Certainly better than a £250+ replacement.
Re: Sy Borg
You'll love it!
I'm happy to say it's my teenage daughter's favourite Zappa track, and I'm now going to be singing it to myself for the rest of the day. Happy times.
Brilliant album. Joe's Garage Act II if you're interested.

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...

It's wobbly hand-held mobile phone footage from miles away.

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?

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.

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.

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...

@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...

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...

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.
