Unlike this beige goo, I would happily live on Pink Wafer biscuits. At least until the malnutrition set in.
My kitchen doesn't have a "delete" button.
Arnie never really left the silver screen. Probably about time he did, though. "Triplets"? Who's the third - Adam Sandler?
But not a snake.
and that we all need food, wouldn't the PETA-types be best served by badgering* MEPs and the like so that vaccinating cattle against TB doesn't result in the beef being classified as unfit for consumption?
"What The NSA Did For Us".
Plus, I'd imagine the expense of send Police/Ambulance/Fire to every little shunt, will soon rack up.
All in all, this strikes me as a well intentioned, but ultimately bone-headed idea.
A bowcaster, surely?
I'd buy that (for the obligatory dollar).
Being able to run off one side of the screen, and reappear on the other, was a killer feature, and is sadly absent for all subsequent football sims.
Pass the assault rifle, the herd needs thinning...
No, me neither. Bloody kids.
Oh, alright then, The Cloud is a catch-all term for applications and services provided on distributed systems, as well as certain implementations of multi-site redundant server virtualisation, and file storage. Saying that something is "in the cloud" is roughly analogous to saying that it's "on the internet" - both terms are vague, but imply that "it" (be it a file or an application) is in a location away from the device, and accessible via the user's internet connection. The Cloud is also the brand name of a WiFi hotspot provider, but this is usually not what someone means when the refer to "The Cloud".
Bleh. That was a mouthful.
Quick, everyone down The Pub (but don't specify which one!).
but then I grew up.
Trolling aside, mandatory online, and no 2nd hand games, makes the XBoxOne sound repellent. The idea that you could use your credentials on a friends machine, to play for a whole hour, gave me a good laugh, though.
It's a catch-all term for remote storage, and also a specific brand on public Wi-Fi. Calm down.
I have a Henry Hoover at home. He's not really a Hoover, though. Bet that makes you cross!
Sounds like you're alright. Pull the ladder up, Jack!
A time machine is just what Broughty Ferry needs.
(and many that I've never heard of). All immaterial, though, as Bruce Campbell is on the list, and so I am compelled to vote for him, on the grounds that HE'S BRUCE CAMPBELL.
Actually, he might make for a pretty good Doctor. He might also make for a terrible Doctor, but who cares? HE'S BRUCE CAMPBELL.
I rather like Bruce Campbell.
as there's something indescribably wrong with the keyboard on my HTC Desire, post ICS update. Quick mention of the Hacker's Keyboard, which sees use on my Nexus 7 for Terminal sessions.
Beans on toast = Good
Marmite on toast = Superlative
Cheese on beans on toast = Like eating vomit
Cheese on Marmite on toast = Wrong
Beans on Marmite on toast = OH DEAR GOD, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!
Fine. Here you go:
1. Turn on grill
2. Whilst grill heats, put bread in toaster and brown slightly more than you intended
3. Burn hands whilst retreiving toast
4. Add sliced (grated, if you're an idiot) cheese* to one side of the toast**
5. Place toast, cheese side up, under the grill until it*** melts
6. Retreive toast, slice if desired, burn mouth on first bite.
*Yellow cheese is traditional, but reds can be used; nothing crumbly (they don't melt properly) and nothing veiny (the results will be bordering on the inedible); bendy cheeses are a possibility, but the results can be strange; all said, best stick with Cheddar.
**You may wish to preceede the cheese with some other toppings/sauces (a slice of ham is a good way to ensure that all the toppings slough off during the first mouthful) - my personal prefence is sliced chicken and jalapenos; you may also with to follow the cheese with a splash of worcestershire sauce (anything else would be an abomination).
***If anything other than the cheese is melting, you should probably lay off the microdots.
"Having a camera that isn't totally shit", is one of my criteria for phone purchases. Being able to upgrade that to "having a camera that's actually pretty good" would be more than welcome.
but I'm going to ADD IT IN CAPITALS.
Never change, Eadon. The forums would be all the poorer for it.
A cup of tea wouldn't hurt, either.
I seem to remember the north-European beauty delivering the weather report whilst dressed in evening wear. Proper classy.
They also had News Bunny, Britiain's Bounciest Weather (with Rusty Goffe), and, umm, Lunchbox Volleyball (a staple of my late night viewing, as a student). Better than BBCThree, anyway.
Were they advocating a boycott of Apple products, or just suggesting that people but them elsewhere?
with a clock? 4 icons in the launcher? Candybar form, with rounded corners? A coloured back?
I take it that everyone from Apple to Samsung, through HTC, Nokia, and all the rest, will be lining up to murder this in court?
I do hope not. A decent, budget smartie can only be a good thing.
"As a Register Forum discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Eadon approaches 1."
He's the BOOGEYMAN of our age.
and the meat-slurry enriched ice-cream reported earlier, it's clearly not a good week for food.
with a load of pointless waffle plastered all over the screen, utterly obscuring what it was that you were trying to watch in the first place. We all love an enhanced experience, don't we?
I'm not going to argue the case for omnipresent CCTV and such, but I have a feeling that it goes beyond hoping that those being filmed will fall over, so that the video can be uploaded to YouTube or posted to You've Been Framed.
People might be willing to accept the CCTV cameras, but why are you - yes, you with the smartphone - what are YOU looking at?
is a truly laudable aim (and the reason we have black puddings and haggis - and who would want to go without them?). That said, and as much as I love offal, this really does sound disgusting.
was an interesting idea, and this looks to be an extension of that (but primarily, or solely, a games machine, rather than a phone).
The thing that holds back Android games (in my view, at least) if the terrible controls - touch screen only is rubbish for anything beyond puzzlers like Angry Birds - so this is the obvious solution. Whether people want an Android machine for gaming, when the DS is already so dominant in the handheld sector, remains to be seen (my gut says that they don't, and this will go the way of the Lynx).
Yes, but have you harnessed that synergy?
I forget who it was, but I had cause to phone a company who's hold music would be occassionally interrupted to let me know that I was "[n]th in the queue". All well and good, but I soon found out that the longest wait was when I was "next in the queue", suggesting that the whole thing was just an artificial countdown.
as they prominently display both an 0800 and a regualr (geographic) number, on all their materials (and the welcome message on the 0800 reminds you of this, again). I do wish more companies would do this.
I see you've been calling BT.
Or perhaps it's just the fact that car insurance for those in the 18-24 bracket is so ludicrously expensive, that they'd agree to anything that might bring it down a bit?
a world without punctuation is not a world in which I wish to live, so I'll pass on BBM. Thanks for the offer, though.
If only Yahoo! had a search engine, then you could use that to look up "tumblr". Oh well...
whilst reading some slash-fiction. Not an experience that I'm keen to repeat.
actual tickets, or human interaction, claiming that I'd failed to pay their parking charge. Pretty stupid process as, unless you remember to get a ticket from the machine, you can't prove that you paid.
Got it overturned, in the end, but I fully endorse any prankster who wants to give these idiots the run around.
To pick just two examples, Die Hard and The Avengers would both have been considerably less interesting if the bad guys were re-cast. To pick another two: Superman 2 and Beverly Hills Cop.
The British get the bad guy roles in Hollywood films because a) the British are the traditional enemy of the Americans (the War of Independence* was a pretty big deal) and b) British actors are better, whether they be giving a finely nuanced performance, heavy with pathos, or just chewing up the scenery at every available opportunity.
As much as I enjoyed the last Star Trek film, it's Cumberpatch that I'm most looking forward to watching, in this one.
*Not sure why they hate the French so much, though.
I may have downvoted you for missing the point, but I do admire your dedication.
I'd like to read your post as a satire, but experience tells me that it's far nearer the truth than any of us would like to admit.
So, some pre-loaded memory cards, and a C64-shaped case into which to slip the Pi - if there was sufficient interest in his original idea, wouldn't that transfer over to this?
of The Cat Lady. What are they?
Whilst I'm asking stupid questions, does anyone still play point'n'click adventures? Have they moved on past "go everywhere, say everything to everybody and try giving them everything in your inventory"?
to deliver us from the terrors of the deadites!
