Someone's got to say it:

They were just checking what was under the kimono.
Have had it for about 18 months now. After a string of flagship phones with one exception (Orange San Fransisco), don't see why I should go back to paying a bomb for a phone. Quite tempted by the new versions, but my current phone is still going strong so it's nice to know I have good options when it starts to flag.
What about "Donut fore sake me...."?
That's ironic as ** the lack of ** a French Letter was what got him into this mess - allegedly...
If there is one software patent I would welcome it will be a way of getting rid of all clickbait (not just from the free content ad network)

1. Assign those of your contacts that you trust to "Workgroup" and check the settings for the permissions on notifications from members of Workgroup.
2 Status = Do not disturb.
3. Get stuff done.
Past POTUS or greeting card company?
"This video is unavailable" - but if you meant the one from The Great Dictator (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX25PDBb708) I couldn't agree more. Should be mandatory viewing for all who would rule.
Of course! Have a rec.

um isn't "gripping hand" => Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle?
Thinking of your about town courier/delivery: OK self driving delivery vehicles = no driver. But you will still need someone to get (usually) the right boxes out of the back and hand them over at the appropriate addresses.
Don't worry, they'll probably break down your door at 5 a.m. and arrest you for "hacking".
Some years ago this comment wouldn't have come to mind or, if it did, I would have used the joke icon; but now this one will have to do until we get a Kafka one.
Given the examples provided in the Bible, do you truly believe that Jesus would refuse to have anything to do with a person who was <insert orientation here>? If He wouldn't, what gives you an opt out based on your belief in him?

>> What's the difficulty? Printed timetables could just include a note to the effect that, "services will run an hour before the printed time between April and October, whilst on-line and electronic timetables could adjust automatically.
So if I want to get the 14:22, to <wherever> which train do I catch?
>The issue is that even if they come, Assange could refuse to answer and could refuse to meet with them. So while the investigators are there. Its pretty much a wasted trip.
If he refused to meet them, then hopefully the prosecution could use that to make a case for waiving the statute of limitations? The fact that he makes a new demand everytime he gets a concession should be going into the building of a case....
>> see what happens to it when it makes contact with St Paul's. And Southmead. And Hartcliffe
Whoever came up with the name may subconciously wish to configure certain areas out of the city?
If they haven't made any connection between this asteroid and Diana then it can't be an important story.
I quite like his version of Don't Fear the Reaper - https://soundcloud.com/krishashok/mrityum-ma
No idea if the lyrics are true to the original.
"This just goes to show why we need more Digital!"
Boffins in the title but Scientists in the article? Is this pandering to new readers' complaints? Nothing but the finest boffins for us regular readers please!
>> Millions follow our world-beating coverage of ray guns, atom smashers, killer robots, selected celebrities, zeppelins, space oddities, and garden-shed engineering breakthroughs, besides our daily reports on the professional IT world.
How could you forget the post-pub nosh?!
Are those the lyrics that are being projected onto the screen at the back of the stage?
Is the audience expected to sing along or is it just to reinforce the message?
>> What happens to the poor schmucks after 12 months...
Well, by then some other mega-corp will have been "hacked" and will be paying for 12 months of identity theft monitoring. Rinse and repeat.
> It's a pity single transferable vote didn't get through.
The reason STV didn't get through was both Labour and the Conservatives pitched it as something the Lib Dems wanted and therefore it must be opposed. The referendum happened at about the height of the "bash the Yellows" phase of this parliament. If the next parliament is even more hung than the current one, then I suspect both parties may soon regret not having STV.
>> Yeah, but how do you pronounce it?
Papua New Guinea?
>> PS. Icon - the only thing that kill a vindaloo...
Only because you've never encountered a real vindaloo.
The vindaloo comes from the Portuguese colonies in India, primarily Goa, and is a fusion of Portuguese and Indian cuisines. It is more sour, due to the vinegar used, than hot, due to any chillies. Additionally a "proper" vindaloo is made with pork - something you are quite unlikely to find in most "Indian" restaurants in Britain.
You can build a snowman but, seeing as everything is "Egyptian", don't be too surprised if some killjoy issues a fatwa against it.
"banking on Facebook" => For extra shivers - imaging it posting to your timeline.
"<your name> paid ¤nnn to <payee>"
"<your name> received ¤nnn from <payer>"

Authenticity fail - insufficient use of "like".
My present budget for this year will go to the company who avoids playing moronic xmas music over their tannoy.
A very good filter - probably excludes 99.999% of all tat (and even non-tat) purveyors.
If 80 people are carried every day then over 365 days that is 80*365 = 29,200 passengers per year.
Over this time the bus is fuelled by 500 people that means each person shitting propels 29,200/500 = 58.4 passengers.
Even if the bus only carries a quarter of its capacity (20*365 = 7,300) that's still 7,300 / 500 = 14.6 passengers per shitter.
A bit more efficient than 4 shitters per passenger!
>> Tripadvisor should flag up hotels with policies like this really clearly,
And how are Tripadvisor going to know that they have such a policy?
an Android phone with a camera like the one on the 1020. I'll just keep hoping that it happens sometime.
>> particularly unusable since it prevents me from using a password manager by asking for random characters from my password.
Get a better password manager? One that lets you select specific characters / substrings from your password.
Am I the only one who, on reading the title, expected the word "Goatse" to appear in the article?
It means the major ISPs have agreed(*) to provide an option to filter "unsuitable" content (because - see icon). Some weeks I ago I had checked my own account settings I was very surprised to see that the default setting there was opt-out.
As one would expect the definition of "unsuitable" is suitably vague (at least whatever definitions I've seen have left me with more questions than answers).
I must admit that Virgin is my ISP. In my defence may I point out that my router's DNS settings point elsewhere and I appear to have been completely missed by this outage, reading about it on El Reg is the first I've known about it.
(*) for "agreed" read - "bullied by the, pure as driven snow, tabloid press".
Roll on 01/04 (or 04/01 for the left-pondians)
One I've seen a bit too often recently - "full proof" (as in "I want this UI to be full proof").
But scientists are intrigued by the mix of stuff coming off the comet.
Wot no boffins?
I'll put my hand up to carrying my Galaxy Note(*) in the back pocket of my jeans(**) and occasionally sitting on it. No ill effect.
*: the original one, still going strong on Cyanogen Mod
**: Not particular skinny.

Priorities 1: India spends roughly 45 million (in Sterling) sending a satellite to Mars and hopefully inspiring a future generation of scientists. In the mean time we will be spending upwards of 30-40 BILLION to get from London to Brum a few minutes quicker. How many kids will HS2 inspire?
Priorities 2: It costs more to get some footballers to pledge temporary allegiance to a team!
>> But be proud that throughout it all the British response was to ignore the cowards for what they are/were > spineless gits.
And now, possibly to return the balance to the mean, we have gone in the absolutely opposite direction. Peaceful, normal day to day activities get the "OMFG T3rr0ist!!!!!!!" treatment.
>> and the ROMs didn't affect the warrany?
Response 1: Warranty? After 4 years? Good luck trying to get any phone manufacturer to fix anything under warranty after so long - even if the phone had been kept in pristine condition.
Response 2: The San Francisco was both relatively cheap and about as close to un-brickable as is possible that there were plenty who were able to take the risk of flashing it over and over again.
>> He must be married.
If he was married (or in a relationship) he would have known the correct answer: They got their husbands / partners to queue and get it for them.
Apple giving away an album is probably the first world problem to end all first world problems. You wouldn't know it for all wailing and gnashing though.

Can we expect to see Google in Private Eye's "Me & My Spoons" column soon?
Work-life balance etc: don't take your work to the pub!
>> a NATO summit in and around Cardiff, Wales later this week
It is in Newport. Many South Walians get a little touchy about their neck of the woods being identified as the 'diff.
