Re: "Shy Tories"
I could not have put this any better myself.
However, the "shy Tory" will also have to keep its little mouth shut when there's chip and pin at the GP surgery to pay for their consultation and all the other horrors emerge over the next five years.
Karma's a bitch, ain't it?
Re: Shovel Knight
and the Wii U
You've got to admit that "UK Uncut" are really annoying - like "Jet fuel can't melt steel beams" level of annoying.
Now, a promotional box of Celebrations to the first person that can explain to me why bank bailouts don't count as State Aid.

Re: Evil Twin Router
It's true, this bloke (just call him Dave) keeps insisting. It's definitely where the EU guys got the lowdown too.
Re: P*ss poor
Well seeing as how YouTube is the equivalent of a badly-drawn animated spunking penis on a toilet cubicle wall, it's no biggie.
I would like to point out that the main ingredients of water-based lube are identical to the base ingredients of e-liquid used in electronic cigarettes. If it's good enough for my genitals, it's good enough for my lungs.

Booker! You need this!

I leave to my nearest and dearest this HDD backup of all my music files, that I have always renewed throughout my lifetime. In the root directory, please find a text file with the password to my Apple account. Should you get really stuck, this password is also written on the HD casing in marker pen.
This shows you really care.
I got 251.
Considering the almighty toys-out-of-pram slinging that King make about the word "Saga" (Things made simple for old people, fictional aspie-Scando detective), does *anybody* actually call this game anything other than just "Candy Crush".
Nobody calls it "Candy Crush Saga"

If you missed out on this most important of Internet sensations of 2014 so far, then you are not cool.
You will never be cool.
Get over it, bro.
This is the worst episode of Dragon's Den ever.
Charlie Brooker married Konnie Huq and did a baby.
I think it's time for some music
PG was right!
Re: Obvious problem, obvious solution
Although the last time I looked, AAISP were sending out the godawful TG-582N as their home router. Whilst they had nobly hacked the one sub-version of the firmware where the developers had forgotten to remove IPv6, getting it to remember a firewall rule appears to be a genuinely impossible task.
Re: I don't understand
Thank you for saying this, I thought it was just me.
Re: If only
There are going to be some very sweet Steamboxes coming soon once the Tegra K1 goes into full production. Nvidia's Unreal 4 engine demo the other day was doing it for me.
I'd be happy with bluetooth printing in iOS7 and a games controller for the Apple TV (now with added App Store)
I'll probably end up buying the stupid f**king fridge though.
You beat me to it. I was just thinking "this is mostly going to be about the Raspi isn't it?". Not that that would be a bad thing. I've been far too lazy to even boot mine up more than a couple of times.
So this is like Zeebox with a Sky+ box then?
A TV manufacturer other than Panasonic might make a screen that isn't so reflective I can see myself gawping at it whilst I eat my dinner.
If I wanted a mirror, I'd buy one.
What's the frequency, Julian?
Gosh, if I was a terrorist, I might be thinking that using computer networks to communicate really was a bad idea.
I might be thinking about OTP, shortwave radio and posting letters.
I'm not buying the hype this time round.
UK 4G. The service for which the word "Meh" was invented.
Re: I wonder what the churn was on wholesale connections...
As far as I was concerned, there should be no effect on Be wholesale connections with AAISP. I've got dual-WAN bonding with them over Be connections. For the last month or so, I have had issues, where I had none before, so perhaps the wholesale service has degraded too. I had thought about migrating to the Talk Talk wholesale, but I'm moving house to another city next month, so I'll deal with it then.
It's all so depressing
I think I'm going to cut off my Internet connection soon.
Still, that should save me a few bob.

Re: Sadly, the under 40s
I remember this exact connection.
I grew up in Beverley which came under Kingston Communications, the only telecoms company that was completely separate from the GPO.

Mr Kipling 6 x Bramley Apple pies: then, £1.23 now, £1.49
"Let them eat pies"
Perhaps, and this is off the top of my head, we could use these for some seriously effective noise reduction processing.
We could clean up the first audio and video recordings of humanity to an almost absolute state of clarity. "What's the probability of the audio sample at this point in time if noise had not occurred?"
This goes way beyond mere 'sample smoothing'.
Oh Lord, not this one again?
Slow news day?

Hopefully all the current hardcore mobile data rapists will migrate and get locked into a nice "Early adopter (mug)" two year contract with EE.
Should give a bit of space to those of us who are happy to stay on 3G until an operator with a clue gets into the LTE / 4G market.
Here's a thought...
We should just let Assange piss off to Ecuador with impunity so he can go and fiddle with his little Wiki and listen to pan-pipe moods.
Sure, it might create a little diplomatic spat with Sweden, but what are they going to do? Close down all the IKEAs in protest. I can't imagine why any right-thinking person in this country wouldn't breathe a huge sigh of relief at seeing the back of those divorce-enablers.
All those police in Knightsbridge and go back to more important work too.
It's a Win-Win-Win.
Try as I might, I'm finding it really fucking hard to have any sympathy whatsoever towards Three.
There's nothing to see here
It's being implemented by Orange, so that won't work then.
I can happily pass on "GPRS speeds on 4G" until an operator with a clue can launch a service.
Re: the alleged rape victims?
Which is very interesting to someone who watched the film 'Zeitgeist' a couple of days ago.
Far from being an antihero, Assange is actually a device of the US Government's paymasters to fuel instability in the Middle East, thus perpetuating their agenda of money making.
The uber-rich can only make money by lending it to governments to fight wars, usually on both sides.
There is almost certainly a level of CIA involvement, for whatever reason ^^^
Orange has a 3G network?
That's news to me, and presumably many poor unfortunate Orange customers..
I want one of those
cars that runs on water. They're definitely out there.
You can't have your money back
Because according to Orange, 3G is a 'bonus' service. You only pay for 2G. Their words.
Personally, I've just given them nearly £400 to get out of a mobile broadband and iPhone contract. It took at least 7 attempts just to get them to unlock my iPhone. The only thing that Orange are good at is utter incompetence.
I see the £400 as a personal fine for my stupidity for ever signing up to this appalling company.
Could not activate cellular data
Orange should be concentrating on getting their 3G network to work properly rather than gimmicky distractions like this.
