El Reg headline writers...
I can't work out if you've just hit new heights, dug to new depths, neither, or both.
Kamikaze probe doing a spot of landscaping...
...& not a single LADEE garden joke in 12 hours. Shameful.
Re: "The damage, on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 12."
Is it too late for a "BOFH of the year" award?
Or too early?
If there's going to be some ground-based manual kill switch it has to be something suitably Bond-villian-esque, the sort of switch that would look fitting on some instrument panel in an extinct volcano-based lair.
Can it have a cover that you need a key to open?
And red, lots of red. Flashing.
Re: not a balanced diet
Uranium mill tailings you mean :) Best ingredients list ever that, & top book, thanks for the flashback.

Re: Cynicism on my mehflakes
They had an example of this in the German GCSE book we used, IIRC it was...
I can't remember how to say anything meaningful in German, but that stuck in there somehow. Any German speakers here? Did I get it right?
Broke out the popcorn, clicked to the comments...
And not a single "squeal piggie" or porking punchline.
Shameful, commentards, absolutely shameful.
Why not use blue whales & elephant seals? All this metric crap is just far too easy. It could be like stone, pound & ounces, except with blue whales, elephant seals, & oh I don't know, some sort of penguin maybe?
Open source attack dog?
Isn't that the next Ubuntu release? Rabid Rottweiler?
The police gave chase & couldn't catch 'em...
But as soon as they rounded a corner Apple's lawyers were on to them like a shot.
World ends in two days?
Fuck I forgot, I've just renewed my monthly travel pass...
Re: "A Scottish man has been given an extra stretch inside"
I didn't, until you pointed it out, for which I thank you.
I've just had my tailor alter my dinner jacket for a shoulder holster.
Re: The Holy Jellyfish?
May you be touched by his (kind of) noodly (albeit in a squishy over-cooked kind of way) appendage.
Dear El Reg SPB
If they beat the record will there be a PARIS 2 after LOHAN?
Re: Arial? How gauche!
As much as I hate Comic Sans I can't help but think that Papyrus would look worse.
Igor, throw the switch!
Can you change the battery?
Re: Not suprised....
"Mind you, I've heard of people taking vintage macs to apple stores and getting service, so stranger things have happened."
It's almost worth $100k just to take it into an Apple store & try!
Re: Why titanium rod?
If you used a tube could you fill it with whatever is in those chemical hand-warmer thingies, just before launching, & at that altitude would it do enough/anything to stop freezing?
Ignore me if I'm talking shit, it's already beer 'o' clock round these here parts & I know nothing.
Re: Re: Patents...
There was a phone released in early 2005 which had an on-screen "slide to unlock" feature. Apple filed the patent in December 2005. Can't remember the manufacturer, some Scandinavian company (not the obvious two).
Look in DuckDuckGo's goodies page, you can just use !shopping before your search.
Man, such hostility...
Some mainly Windows BOFHs also do Linux admin & vice versa. Such people may have Linux tools that they use for Windows admin & system rescue, therefore mentioning such tools is surely quite legitimate when they've been asked what tools they use. It's each to their own, either deal with it or get a job llama farming or some shit. In fact bollocks, it's your blood pressure.
I'm a complete agnostic when it comes to OS preference, each has it's own merits. But Windows admins going all frothy at the mouth as soon as someone mentions that they use Linux tools to fix things is quite frankly a bit sad, just as sad as the reverse would be. I've picked up tips here on both MS & Linux based options, if you stop going all red mist & actually read some of the comments you may learn about something that will save you some serious time & effort at some point.
Serious, this is making iTards look positively liberal & cuddly, & a fair proportion of both Windows & Linux BOFHs who have posted look like a bunch of cockwombles.
Damn, when I read the concrete balls bit I came as close as I've ever genuinely come to replicating the icon to the left, nasally. I think it's lucky I've got a cold.
No it's an emo band from Stoke on Trent.
Kill It Before... Oh SH..........
Surely it would be more entertaining to submit Profanisaurus entries to the Pakistan "Telecomminication" Authority, whoever gets the most added to the naughty list wins!
Or just call it first to 5?
Yeah but they only had it covered for third-party, fire, theft & aliens, so they're still screwed.
