I bet it will run xBuntu.
Can it address LCDs with more than 1080 pixels?
I've obviously been reading the headlines wrong for the last 8 years thenn
Phantom Menace, while not out in front, is currently beating The Happening. Which means that M Lite shamalamdingdong's worst stinker is better than Spielberg's worst stinker.
Which does not mean that Emm Line Shawaddywaddy is a better director than Steve, does it? Does it?
Thing is, I'm so disinterested in Rim now, I don't care what the stories say, true, enemy action , or spoof.
You do the hokey kokey and..
More original than:
Taking the piss out of Apple, patents, and the obesssions of your own commentards. Well done.
Can I also point out:
I bet it is something like this:
I used to tell people at work who asked for the administrator password on their desktops "The password is obvious"
After an hour watching them trying the company name, my name, their name, 'password', 'computer', etc, I would wander past and give them a bit of paper with a single word written on it.
Shakespeare, along with act & line nos.
Ah. Another category to add to my "one born every minute" file.
Welcome to cold, hard, capitalist, reality boys.
People just don't understand Capitalism, do they?
We are back to LED meaning 'led backlighting' then?
worked for me this morning in FF 5.0
>all those paper iPads become fully functional iPads in the afterlife
Interesting idea, of course. If we could modify that 'technology' maybe worthless euros in germany could become fully functional currency in Greece?
Instead of the other way around.
I used to work on cable laying ships, and whenever we dropped a splice in the water off China, the client rep would throw a handful of "luck money" into the water. If even one bit blew back onto the ship we had to grapple for the cable again, cut and re-splice it, and drop it again ditto.
This "luck money" is essentially worthless photocopies of currency, to give the Gods. Are Chinese gods so easily fooled? It would appear to be the opposite of Omnipotence to me.
The Chinese are back to being bogey-men, it seems.
When I was a kid we had Dr. Fu-Manchu and his evil oriental henchmen, and then for a while the world was quite sensible and civilised about funny people from far away. We had discovered they were good chaps after all, and our new friends.
Now they seem to be the dark forces of evil again.
And no doubt with a 1400x760 screen
What you say is undoubtedly correct.
I am, however, disturbed at the thought that my entertainment choices are being made for me by the sort of dribbling insouciants I see in pubs watching TV and leaning very slightly forwards while they do so.
And yet, and yet, people are now trying to sell us HD tellies to watch the same old carp on.
That is a long overdue development, isn't it.
I am quite tempted. People have said it is slow and unresponsive, but hey it's just over a hundred quid...
So Apple is part of some plain to foist US designs for celluar infrastructure on the rest of the world?
Imagine if the component parts of Airfix kits just merged with each other when held together? No more tricky gluing! No more spotty youths sniffing plastic cement.
That is so cool.
It does seem odd to be carrying more payload up just to pump out as a boundary layer for re-entry. Is it lighter than the ablative layer from the hull?
But sharp corners may be useful. Think of corona forming at points for electrically charged objects. With the right design a charged body could repel ionised gasses (maybe not very much?) I wonder if this could be combined with the electrospike ideas? We never heard any more about those.
My Auntie's house was flattened by a V2 when she was out at work.
Perhaps we should all be anaesthetised at the airport, put in vertical body bags with hooks above our heads, and slid in on rails like sides of meat? You can't kill anyone if you are asleep and hanging from a conveyor.
A couple of years ago security at Schiphol confiscated my Kensington cable because the eye in the end meant I could loop it and make a garotte.
Then the next trip they confiscated my RS232 cables "because they could be used to strangle someone" but left me the power cord for the computer "because it is part of the computer, so it is legitimate".
(1) trying to pull a kensington cable tight would be a superhuman task
(2) and the RS232 cables were part of my alarm clock?
As someone said elswhere,. I'd pay a fiver to be able to upvote this a 1000 times.
Nor much "united" if past history is any guide.
so .fuk then?
we are allowed any character set in urls now, so perhaps something in ogham?
http://www.mockfont.com/old/ for fonts
<- I wonder what fonts the Greys use?
AIUI, the correct form would be .softsouthernlagerdrinkingjessies or .softsouthernlagerdrinkingpoofs
You need better clients.
I just did a mandatory computer based "training module" suggesting that sort of thing. I got up and wandered off while the thing was still talking about it.
No, but it sounds like a good idea. It's a half hour walk so by the time I've found my boots and locked the dogs in the shed, this is the time to set out.
Blimey. A regulator doing some regulating.
Miracles will never cease.

>The Powers That Be have allowed LTE to be called 4G even though it isn't
Some powers. In some places. Perhaps.
I'm listening to Schubert on Radio 3 as I read this (In HD streaming, as it happens) and I agree that the thing that is missing these days is Music. We have a lot of Marketing, but no real music.
OK, I like
Ali Farka Touré
Where are the likes of:
The Albion Band
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Lincolnshire Police have already outsourced their control room to G4:
They are hoping to get some sort of kickback from G4 if other forces sign up, for the training and startup benefits G4 will learn from Nettleham. 
 is putting a kettle on so very difficult?
I've already said I don't want contactless anything, so will maintain my previous stance.
I have not asked for it, I don't want it.
>Human resources official from hell??
Bit tautological, that.
I only know of one type.
Sounds like the advanced culture would be freezing to death quite quickly.
If they are really desparate I can probably round up 5Tb of unused disks here, and I bet other hobbyists across europe could as well. LVM could turn them into one big bit bucket.
If a pan european call to donate hardware went out, I'd box some stuff up and post it to them.
People will stop buying phones and iPuds because their car can talk to their Fridge, so they won't need a desktop to do word processing on?
Is that what he said?
Time for Cumbria to go the Icelandic route?
