I bought an LG Cookie off ebay,
and found myself with an extra Memory Stick Micro (Cookie uses MicroSD) full of photos. They didn't want it back, but I'm too polite to look through the photos!
Privacy really isn't an issue, to most people.
The new interface has confused the hell out of my dad,
thus increasing my technical support duties. Thanks, Yahoo!
grumble,no support,grumble,from anyone,grumble,grumble
Further proof, were it needed,
that the internet isn't so much about the free exchange of information and ideas, and more an outlet for pornography and a playground for childish idiots (mostly the latter, in this story).
I signed up some time ago, but have never actually used the service as everything I want, I can through iPlayer, 4oD and Demand5. Anything else isn't worth paying for, as it's only TV. Shame, but there you go.
I love Marmite, but it can only be consumed when spread on toast, on it's own (almost, the butter is a given).
Doing anything else with it (except, perhaps, enhancing a stock) is appalling. I added it to beans on toast, once, and found out why so many people hate it.
there be no law, 'pon the sea.
to imagine why anyone would appeal against a ruling that granted them $20m in cash, but then this isn't a story I've followed very closely.
If they really don't want it, I'll happily take it off their hands.
that my kids will grow up with nostalgia for some really shitty films. Perhaps I should nip this in the bud and show them the original whilst they're still toddlers?
They get to run red lights, too,
and flout the speed limit.
Honestly, it makes me sick.
Claiming added vitamins
and claiming health benefits, are not necessarily the same thing.
Vitamin and health concerns aside, Marmite is the finest spread available to top one's toast with, and the Danes are missing out. More fool them.
has made me all nostalgic for Win3.11, and the File Mangler. Oh, happy days, drawing a pixel art mangler, just to service a bad pun...
Seriously, though, storing files on the desktop is dreadful behaviour, and something that I'm always telling myself off for.
Does this make parliament
the number one source for celebrity gossip? I'd always wondered what they got up to.
I'm sure his children will be so proud
when they find out what's been going on (if they haven't already).
What a sorry affair.
I'd like to agree with this but,
coming off the back of an article that appears to state that an app store is not a store which sells apps, I'm not sure that I can believe anything, anymore.
Is The Matrix broken?
Maybe we should license computer ownership? Most people I support would have to go without, though!
My son is 4
and I do sometimes leave him unsupervised online. However, I am well aware of a) what is on the internet and b) his level of computer literacy, such that whilst I may leave him alone perusing CBeebies, I watch him like a hawk on YouTube.
It is a fact that computers are everywhere (Martha Lane Fox exists to make sure we all get online) but many people know very little about them, so I have no problem with tools being made available that could help parents regulate what their children will see online (something as simple as the 9pm watershed wouldn't work here), and ISPs are probably best placed to deliver such tools. But they must be opt in, and that is the responsibility of parents (TV doesn't turn itself off a 9 on the off chance that someone unsuitable might be watching).
None of this is difficult, nor should it be controversial.
Who decides who's popular?
Gabe Newell, or the die-hard loonies who spend their whole lives on-line? I can probably live without the approval of either.
Much like the music industry, maybe Valve should concentrate on producing quality games, that people will be prepared to pay for? This endless shift to on-line play, subscriptions and DLC (for a extra fee), leaves me rather cold.
Not that the complainant wasn't being an idiot,
but her being at home during the day hardly invalidates her opinion.
Maybe she was home because her child was sick?
Maybe she works nights?
Maybe her household income is such that she doesn't have to work?
Maybe she lost her job?
This looks like quite a good idea,
providing you live in London, or some other large city. I could even see it worthwhile as a second car, for commuting to work (my total daily mileage is just under 50).
We're still some way off proper electric cars though - my wife was looking at the Nissan Leaf at the dealer's last week, as was advised by the salesman to steer well clear.
Red hair accompanies pale skin,
which implies weakness, thus easily overpowered.
In women, this would make them easy to impregnate, in a man, this would make them unlikely to impregnate anything.
Having typed that, it's clearly a load of bollocks - I'll bet Mick Hucknall has had plenty of opportunities to impregnate things (*shudder*) - which must mean that evolution is a load of rubbish, and the fundamentalists were right all along.
Back in my day,
we had propoer terrorism, like that practiced by the IRA, where they would phone up the police in advance of a bombing. Can't we persuade the jihadists to op for that?
I'm pretty sure it eliminated street crime, and allowed little old ladies to leave their doors unlocked, too.
GKettle. Like a regular kettle, but somehow better, and will only boil GWater.
GWater is £20 per litre.
Is there anybody left on the internet,
who hasn't heard this quotation before? It's the thinking man's lolcats.
I trust that if you were to sell your laptop,
or lend it to a friend, you'd at least let them know about your anti-theft measure, and show them how to disable it?
Nice bit of positive publicity for BT,
at least until someone does them for discrimination - or does knowing how to hold an SA-80, better qualify you as a telecoms engineer?
"Generous reward package"? Not from what I've heard.
