Re: James May
He does according to the super-secret court injunctions :)
I've never really understood the benefit of NAS boxes when a fully functioning PC could be had for the same price or lower. Or for that matter the bits left over from a recent upgrade.
Put them to work in the Foxconn factories, but all their wages go to the Chinese person they replaced.

"But can it form knives, and stabbing weapons?"
And curvy blondes?
Re: The users lose out
The music industry should be killed.
It's the artists who need to live on, not the accounts who populate the "industry".
Not been to the US much then?
The land that no shoed person shall enter,
I wonder if they got the idea from the Muslems?
At least he'll have something to play with when in the hospital awaiting death.
They can have my IPv4 static IP...
...when they prise it from my cold, dead router,
Given that Bonobo's are the primates that lurve to fuck. It can only be presumed that once they have access to words then it won't be long before we can expect some Mills & Boon bodice rippers from them.
As far as the robot is concerned, I hear Ann Summers has expressed an interest in partnership with Duracell.
Anyone applied for...
I'm surprised that...
...Apple haven't gone after those printing pictures of the rounded corners.
...if finally someone is going to do research on just how long a fart does hang around in a spacesuit.
More like peehole surgery... yeah I know, I'll get my coat!
Eggs & Basket are the words that spring to my mind.
What a shame it wasn't Brand who got launched through the window, with the accompanying "Just trying to make people laugh fucker!"
Sheesh, Jimbo is as transparent as a not very transparent thing.
I wonder if he'll regale the Whitehall staff with anecdotes of his career publishing porn?
I'm sure India's starving millions will consider the price to be a bargain.
Please remind me again, why is Britain sending millions of pounds in aid to India?
People don't seem to realise that 50% of all doctors were in the bottom half of their classes, and of that 50% most end up as a GP.
A Jack of all medical trades, but a master of none.
Looks like the doctors are having difficulty adapting to their new pedestals which seem to be a lot lower than they ever used to be.
Write them all and let calibre sort 'em out (paraphrasing of course).
Pah! Fucking religion!
As if life wasn't complicated enough.
I put out on the first date regardless of the phone I have in my pocket!
Aren't you forgetting Sweden?
Shouldn't that be Mediocre Britain these days?
It's just unfortunate that it wasn't Newt in the boot!
That would be Metal Mickey, featuring the voice of Mickey Dolenz.
Commentards in lynch-mob fervour...
...why is it in the post-9/11 world people are automatically assumed to be guilty?
Has the "innocent until proven guilty" mindset in this world of terrorism disappeared for every big media bust?
Is it any wonder that the US is the most reviled nation on Earth?
Our street is 50mb compatible. I don't use VM at all. As a result I must be pissing them off as they send me tons of junk mail. It's ridiculous the amount of trees that must have died to try to persuade me to take on something there is no way in hell I'd use.
So one errant email? Meh!
"...treat workers with dignity and respect..."
Unlike their customers of course!
The Nikiski picture
I can't help but see the parallel, from times gone by, with the pictures of Rolf Harris advertising the Stylophone.
There's no such thing as American English, let alone British English.
The UK uses English, Americans speak American. There is no England in America (and although it tried, New England is still not England).
The "ish" on the end of English means pertaining to England. HTH
I bet it won't know about my swinging weekends much less advertise them :)
If you can find me a 50" plasma monitor (none of that LCD/LED rubbish for me) at a TV price I'd be more than happy.
I only watch blu-rays, occasional DVDs and HD-DVDs, downloaded TV shows in hi-def and MKVs. That's it. Broadcast TV is so shite these days it really isn't worth the expense of putting a tuner in a TV.
Gimme a hi-quality screen where the usual expense of all the fripperies is spent on the plasma panel and its associated electronics and I'd be a happy man
Don't need one.
I have a 3-year-old Panasonic plasma with a PC with HDMI out (and a Keysonic wireless keyboard with integrated trackpad). Far smarter than any smart TV out there.
But if I were to buy a new TV it would have had to have all the money spent on getting the best picture it can. No 3D, no 'net access, no media streaming. Just a very, very good monitor really. My Denon amp and Mordaunt-Short 6.1 supplies the sound so it wouldn't even need a volume control.
These days TVs are getting more and more like the integrated stereo systems of old and it'll get to the point where they do everything with mediocrity but nothing with brilliance.
...no sound on the video!
Purely to get the relationship between activity and result of course.
A quantum leap of difference?
Ah I remember the Doom obsession well. Spending literally days downloading mods from the infant2 server circa '93. I think my personal stash of mods ended up at around 1500...though I think I only actually tried a quarter of them.
I thought this was going to be a partwork in installments.
## Pink thing in the ring dah, dah, dah, dah, dah ##
I've been on opiates for nigh on 30 years, all courtesy of a long list of quacks of course, first dihydrocodeine and now tramadol (the latter I have a physical dependency on...my pain clinic consultant says "addicted is when you mug old grannies for your drugs, patients are 'physically dependent'" - I like my consultant. So what happens if I get scanned? I'm doing drugs quite legally with the full knowledge of my quack and the DVLA, but I'm sure Mr Plod won't give a shit at 3am on a cold night when my brakelight bulb has gone (and I have a digital camera on the seat next to me!).
Great, looks like I'll be able to read a Kindle underwater soon Well I take mine everywhere else!
The US wasn't a fascist state then, it was trying to be one, but bin Laden was on our side then and hadn't started in the demolition biz.
Are we sure...
...that it isn't the actual storage area of the legendary Weapons of Mass Destruction that Bliar and Bu$h knew were hidden round here somewhere?
And if , as requested, they do report to the police, will they find themselves in the shit?
Looks like Mr & Mrs Gorman like to watch the BBC.
Since when is scribbling a note an invasion of privacy? The TSA guy had to search her bag anyway.
Sounds like this 'lady' needs her vibratory friend as she's too uptight to get the real thing!
I've sussed it...
...it's all this physics shite, it's very heavy reading. That's why Kubiatowicz's Kindle got weightier.
He may be a bit raving, but I have to agree with what he says.
Ah but, they didn't invent it. They merely patented it.
