Oh, that was quick.
Ooh, ICL. The first machine I inflicted my code on was a 2904.
God, I'm old.
Unfortunately, neither is Gil Scott-Heron.
Icon? There used to be a headstone...
Speaking as an ex plumber and pc/network engineer, can I say that combination boilers are more efficient than HW storage systems, unless HW usage and demand is high.
For low usage households, modern condensing combi boilers are the most efficient option, more so if your heating system is correctly sized.
However, central heating is not always the best/cheapest/greenest option. Talk to an expert, not a salesman, and certainly don't ask British Gas for a quote. I have, in my plumbing past, quoted half the BG price, and still made a very handsome profit. Taking the piss is normal practice for those fuckers...
So you can still hear it when you leave town and accelerate to out of town speeds, and conversely, so it doesn't blow your ears off when you get to the next slow spot.
My nearly twenty year old car does it, and it's very useful. One less reason to take your eyes off the road.
In the grand scheme of things, not a massive advance, but it's the little things like it that make me appreciate my car's design.
It's a Volvo by the way.
Pointless law is pointless.
Still available (I think) as a Java App for feature phones, and on Android and PC (Opera Turbo).
Hope it doesn't bite!
What is the sound like compared to your LP12?
Shit, I expect...
It's easy to tell the difference.
If it isn't incomprehensible tosh, it's AmfM.
My old 'M' reg' Wolseley Six...
Final Assessment of Radios and Telemetry Prior to Awesome Near Terrestrial Spaceflight.
That was Not the nine o'clock news!
True, so true.
Still running Opera 12.16 here, and will be for the foreseeable future.
You can buy a Landy Disco for that sort of money.
Volvo XC90 for five grand more.
Except when you click on the link, the price has miraculously changed to £15.99 not £14.99, so 20% is right.
Marketing speak is everywhere these days. Get used to it, and learn to read between the lines!
I just received the email from TalkTalk, but as I never speak to unsolicited callers unless I know them personally, it's not a problem for me, or anyone with half a clue about security.
My most blatant one was a receipt from Asda for a dozen Durex ribbed condoms, which I insisted were PPE.
Questions were asked, but they couldn't argue with my logic...
It's turtles all the way down.
I downloaded it on the back of its reputation, but gave up watching after about 20 minutes.
Not a snigger passed my lips.
Hard to fix?
That will be why the updated libs were pushed out this afternoon to my Ubuntu, Debian and Centos boxes.
You're right, that wasn't hard at all.
Meet our very own Mr. Frothy.
Try not to take him too seriously.
Icon? Frothy head!
I prefer the "alt" text.
Like dropping a pencil down a well.
Would he have a clue what I was talking about?
Who'm I gonna call?
You Sir , are one of my favourite commentards.
Your few words are well chosen, and well targeted.
Have a thumb!
How I laughed!
Mr. Frothy it shall be. Now, and forever more.
Is that you Matt?
I saw that one!
Escape to victory. What a classic. Should be on in the next few days. It's Christmas!
Put my name down for three please.
How much for DHL next day delivery?
Icon? Not a chilham, but hey, red Leb!
Not seen that since the Israelis "visited".
YOU get it.
I get it.
WE get it.
THEY don't get it.
This argument is all down to driver's and cyclist's attitude to each other. We are ALL road users.
Driving requires your full attention at all times.
If you can't give driving/riding your full attention, don't do it.
TL:DR Watch where you're going.
Agreed, but it's still way too white.

Just put it back how it was on Wednesday.
I had a feeling it would be, and I was right too.
Thank you NASA, and well done!
Drinks all round?
Moto G != iPhone
While your fervent anti-Apple beliefs are admirable, your reading comprehension is risible.
Do try to keep up.
Or buy a £2 grippy silicon case, and not drop the fucking thing in the first place.
As an added bonus, it actually protects the phone from all but direct pointy thing to screen damage.
I've never dropped mine in four years of smart-phone use, and my current one year old Moto G is completely unmarked.
Same old same old.
Shouldn't this be in Bootnotes?
Whaddaya mean you're serious?
I think you forgot something!
I was being
There's only one way to find out.
It's the evil hacker-paedo-child-terrorists that will get YOU unless WE get these new laws!
Computer says "Re-education for you!"
Has nobody read 1984 FFS?
Nice to know they are happy to target more than just us hoi polloi.
Money well spent.
Treasonous May wants new laws to spy on school-children, to protect us from... Exploding children! Or something.
What next? Paedo children? Children who want to have sex with other children? Rather than sex with
fat MPs grown men? It must be stopped!
Holy shit, this country is fucked up!
Maybe we should all just offer ourselves up for re-education?
