"Australia continues its drift northwards..."
Further proof that Australians are just a bunch of ruffians!
Leave the continents alone. Bully!
Re: One less worry
If you can drive from Europe to America, that means the zombies can walk here!
Keep your European zombies, we have enough of our own here in government offices.
Nah, it's the fault of the cellular providers.
It's global roaming.
Re: Interface (Verb)
Nah, that one is being used to move people through the cafeteria a little faster.
I told my wife about the study results.
Her response was "Go out and find one of these women and sleep with her then."
My wife hates facial hair. Fortunately I only need to shave three times a week to stay smooth-ish.
Re: First Website Ever?
Probably April 30th 1993.
But it took until May 9th 1993 to finally make out the first nipple...
Re: Logitec Linux fail
You're wrong Eadon, the Unifier software is not just for Windows, it's also available for OSX (and works well with it).
It's easy to bash things when you make up facts.
Re: Just as Eadon predicted - iWatch COPY CAT FAIL
Anyone ever wonder if Eadon is just a piece of software with a link to Wikipedia that is programmed to seek out anythjing that mentions Microsoft, and then post venemous anti-MS rants?
Re: Windows Security Patches + Anti-Virus considered Harmful
So only slightly harder to do than clicking the OK in Windows UAC pop-up window?
Oh wait, if you are running as anything other than a user with admin rights you get prompted for admin credentials.
Don't get me wrong, I know Windows is more prone to virii and I am certainly not a fan of Windows, I use it on my corporate provided laptop by necessity. My personal machines run either OSX or Mint, and have for almost a decade.
What I don't understand is why people seem to think a paucity of virii in their OS of choice would mean it is any more virus immune than another OS.
Or "Everybody's got AIDS" by the Montreal SKA band Me Mom & Morgentaler.
Re: Apparently, we are special
My brother in law never has to lie.
He tells people he's pursuing a PhD in philosophy.
Surprisingly no one seems to need his help around the house...
if I stored data in the "cloud"...
I'd be less worried about the green aspects and more concerned with reliability and accessibility.
I know why they can't get "restricted" certification.
As yet BlackBerry hasn't forgotten a z10 on public transit, which seems to be a requirement. :P
Glad I'm Canadian!
Here in Montreal you can find a kiosk that unlocks phones for $20 CAD in almost any shopping mall.
The last two or three phones I've had were pay as you go phones from other networks that I then unlocked to use with my provider. Cheapest way to replace a phone when your baby breaks them.
I'm lucky enough to live in Montreal, Quebec, known to be home to some of the most beautiful people in the World...
Being a field technician during the summer is...distracting. :)
My hard earned tax dollars at work.
I think I want a refund.
Re: Nice work if you can get`
You'd bankrupt the planet before even making a dent in the web. :)
First time I saw one of these on the road...
I thought, holy crap that's German!
It looks like a modern version of the Super Beetle, and more than a little like it drove out of 1944 Germany...
I think VW got it right with this one, unlike the travesty that was the last one.
Replicas, I'm hoping...
I saw the title and thought:
There are two things in this world that smell like fish. One of them is fish...
You know, they could combine this museum and the todger one...Sort of an interactive display...
Re: Burn the heretics!!
Canadian back bacon is world famous!
Not like that cheap stuff the Americans call bacon. :)
Oh, and have you tried any of Quebec's'micro-brews? We have some great beer, check out http://unibroue.com/
Who had the nerve to steal some of my province's maple syrup?
So that's where it went!
Damn Tardis door flew open and my paperweight got sucked out...
First thing I thought when I saw the patterned back was that it looks familiar.
Then it hit me, that's the same pattern I had as a desktop background on Windows 3.11! Can't remember what the pattern was called though.
Sources close to Apple report new text entry system.
My brother tells me that his wife's sister's neighbour's daughter's friend's dog walker heard from a Cupertino resident that the next iPhone will sport a slide out keyboard.
It will also have a holographic 3D projector next to the rear camera.
My report only contains 1 fewer facts than the Reg article.
Great, more crap drives ahead.
Fantastic, now not only will Toshiba make crap laptop drives, but crap desktop ones too?
I've had more Toshiba laptop drives fail on me in the last 4 years than all other hard drives combined. I have a client that had a bunch of Toshiba laptops, and I was out there changing a drive or two a week...
Title? I've got a title, what of it?
So she's offering a reward? Wonder what it is...
I'm sure Paris knows how to reward good samaritans. ;P
What do you baste them with?
I find that a nice garlic barbecue sauce works best...
I supposed the traditionalists wouldn't baste, just serve with mint jelly...
Takes me back to the good days of PC gaming...
Leisure Suit Larry 1+2, King's Quest, Full Throttle, Dark Forces 1+2, C&C, Syndicate Wars (the first one)...
I never got to play DoTT or Maniac Mansion, always wanted to though.
I've had a Nintendo, and N64, original X-Box, PSP-3000, but nothing has been as much fun as those old PC games.
Unfortunately no pictures, but a story.
About a decade ago I was working as a field tech for a Dell warranty service provider in Canada.
I got sent to a flower shop to find out why their machine was running so slowly and shutting down all the time.
Now, I'm used to dirty machines, but this one was worse than anything I'd seen or heard about.
I get to the shop and am shown into the back where they make the flower arrangements and do all the cuttings. The pc looks dusty from the outside, like everything else in the backroom, but nothing could prepare me for what was inside.
I removed the top cover on this first gen Pentium (you know, the cases where top and sides are one piece), and inside it was packed solid with dust. Not loose, floating dust, more like a dust brick that filled every inch of space in the machine.
I pulled it out in chunks. Cleaned it and replaced the fans. It's a miracle the thing would function!
