"would you have less confidence in someone who thinks that an app dying is brilliant?"
No. I'd have less confidence in someone who thinks their app can't fail.

If Cthulhu shares his creator's views on black people, depression won't be the reason he doesn't live in Detroit. That is not dead which can eternal lie, but thankfully that doesn't apply to death of the author.
Because there are more people than prisoners in prisons. They'd also jam the signal for visitors, including lawyers, and more importantly they'd jam it for the guards.
Doubly so while wiping his bottom, lest he swipe to unlock.
And here I was, thinking only the Duracell bunny had a high-capacity battery stuck up its bum.
That's not true, there are always the gaffes to look forward to. The year when Slovenia's hosts excitedly awarded their own country 12 points despite not qualifying for the finals was a highlight.
It was Maria Whittaker on the Barbarian poster. And the barbarian himself was Wolf from Gladiators.
I've often wondered why people who use "gay" to mean "bad" never logically extend it and use "straight" to mean "good". And do they think bisexuality is mediocre?
To be honest, I first read the headline as "homophobic encryption speed barrier".
I think the downvotes have come because ISIS have not broken the homophobic encryption speed barrier. In fact, their homophobia is not encrypted at all. They're getting plenty of practice taking it to terminal velocity, though.
(Bomb, because we're dropping a lot of them on the gay-bashers of the Caliphate.)
They should try being on Universal Credit. The IFS just announced that it will make people poorer than they are under the existing system.
(Before anyone goes off on one about encouraging people to find work: many people who will be on UC are already working.)
Indeed, thank you Solmyr. This one was a simple slide switch that looked rather like this:
I'm not going to pass comment on how they found it before finding the big rocker switch they should have been using, but it was even worse than just needing a fingernail.
Too late. I've been there when someone was instructed to use the power switch on the back of the PC to turn it off and hit the voltage switcher instead. I believe that sound is sometimes referred to as "the Crack of Doom".
So he's right, NASA haven't changed a bit. They weren't putting people into orbit thirty years ago, either.
Beer: to the crew of the Challenger and especially to Christa McAuliffe, the woman who wanted to teach history and instead became it.
This being Hollywood, they'll just split it into two parts to double the box office.
I'll get my second coat, shall I?
Muscle relaxant so she could get the bag up, then a painkiller so she wouldn't notice they were there. It's a sound theory that fits the evidence.
(Beer, even though despite being a muscle relaxant and relieving the pain you really will notice if it's inserted into a bodily orifice.)
Listen, bud - he's got MYSTICAL radioactive blood.
Are you kidding? The Reg said that toilet was only for executive bots. How rich is that, to have someone to write a computer program that automatically shits for you?
I'd wager money it's a backronym.
Reminder that this year we're getting a Dad's Army movie.
Re: the sexbots - are El Reg really saying they wouldn't watch Robot Whores?
Janis Ian, who was one of the first musicians to notice that making some of her music available online for free increased her record sales, has said that in a 20-year career on major labels she never once saw a royalty statement that didn't say she owed the label money.
Perhaps making bad curries that give people the galloping shits and saying they're fit for Thailand's king is why they're over here running a takeaway. Back home they'd be jailed.
I tried installing Windows 10 and found it definitely used less resources than Win7. That's because it disabled my firewall and internet security software.
Win10 is a virus.
After receiving all those scam emails, I've developed an overpowering to kick a Nigerian prince. Invite me round to your place, would you - I can get two for the price of one!
Honestly, Episode I would have been OK if Anakin's story had directly mirrored Luke's by starting him at 18. Drop the midichlorian crap and the "humourous" racial stereotyping as well and it would have been pretty good.
I don't know if it is or not, but I do know that the "Thai hooker/stripper with drugged nipples" story is an urban myth that has been going around since at least the 1980s. I'm not at liberty to check El Reg's source right now, but they may have been tricked into reporting legend as fact.
I do live in the North of Scotland.
If you live in the UK and talk technology prices, swapping $ for £ without adjusting the numbers is instinctive at this point.
No, just apple flavoured.
No, that's forcing them to read the comments section.
Had money, surely?
Sorry, guys - I can't tell which of those words is the Welsh for "clitoris".
Though, according to Google Translate the answer is probably "all of them". It's like the end of Being John Malkovich, except with clits.
As I recall it, Cupid was only ever referred to by a single name in any of the sketches. It wasn't until someone asked what her second name was and Everett replied "Stunt" that the joke became known.

Microsoft, turn around and force the world to install Windows 10...
Definitely having a Steve Harley moment after that post.
There's a certain irony in an anonymous poster on an internet community forum exhorting his fellows to "go live in the real world" to avoid becoming disconnected, don't you think?
Reality is a wonderful place, but I'm glad I don't have to live there full time.
No, the real scandal is that $6. Which cheap bastard slipped a $1 bill in among the fives and tens?
If we could ask Donald Campbell, it wouldn't be half as challenging as you're making out.
Yeah, GW have been getting terrible for years and everyone in the trad gaming hobby knows it. However, for a few years now Fantasy Flight Games have had the license to publish non-miniatures based games in the GW universe and they are not terrible (except in the rulebook department). They've reprinted the classic Chaos Marauders, and they have a range of other releases including variants on Blood Bowl and Space Hulk.
Because you have a higher percentage of your population jailed than almost any other country in the world? My goodness. And here I was thinking it was because many Americans are too fat to bend down and pick up the soap if they drop it.
Rape jokes aren't funny. It doesn't matter who is getting raped.
And for once, this would be worse than having your I out.
So, time for another holiday then?
Well, obviously. Everyone knows that things in airport terminals Costa bomb.
This is completely incorrect. The Grand Tournament is not an adventure like Naxxramas or Blackrock Mountain (which do cost 700G per wing, or you can buy them for real money). It's an expansion that comes in booster packs of 5 cards that cost 100G each or can be bulk bought with real money.
You can play Hearthstone for free, but it's pretty painful unless you're already good at it. The best advice for new players is to save your gold for Arenas (which reward packs and cards and let you learn by experience) and buy Naxx and BRM for money. Basically it's now a $50 game with further optional micro-transactions. It's still good VFM at that level, though.
(Handy tip for people who plan to spend real money: if you have an Android device, install the Amazon app version of the game and make purchases through that using Amazon Coins. The coins are discounted at least 10% when bought in bulk, plus there's often a partial rebate on Coin purchases - IIRC there's a 25% rebate on right now in the US. Also you'll be given a free Classic booster pack the first time you complete a game on each of an Android tablet and phone, an iPad and an iPhone.)
Can't be - it looks far too interesting.
I haven't struggled at all. When I installed Windows 10 it disabled my firewall and antivirus without notifying me and left my PC completely unprotected. I uninstalled it immediately, and I will not install it again.
You didn't sign up to AshleyMadison, obviously.
The Deluxe is the one with real hair, isn't it?
How could I? There was no option to select Ethan Hunt.
I thought it was "The internet, where men are real men, women are also real men and children are the police"?
If you claim to have deleted my records completely then your sales department phones me up, then either you're lying about deleting records or your company is cold calling. Either way, if you think I'm an idiot for being angry about that you can go fuck yourself.
E: Doctor Syntax - you'd be amazed how many companies give zero shits about the TPS. They get around regulations by claiming it's a market research call so they can claim you consented to receive the sales pitch if you answer any questions, or by saying each time they call that they're very sorry, it was a mistake and they'll take you off the list (which wears thin after the third or 23rd time, but hey - they didn't know, they just have a list). That's assuming they don't simply base their call centres outside the UK, or not give their number and/or company name so you can't even file a TPS complaint.
They chose it based on commonality of use. I forget if it was just the two most popular girls names that year or the names most commonly used by women being anonymous, but you could probably Google it.
