This already happens with Songs. My daughter bought a song but it did not download properly, so she pressed it again and got the message "You have already bought this song, do you want to buy it again?".
No I fucking do not. I want to download it as I've already paid for it. I went to the computer and tried it there as well. It won't download the song as part of the purchased ones, and insists I buy it again.
I fucking hate Itunes.
CFL - No use to me
I have precisely one fitting in my house that could take a CFL. The rest are either halogens, on dimmer switches, or are fittings that fit flush with the ceilings and would look ridiculous with a stupid CFL twizzle stick sticking out of it.
Actually just thought of another in a chandelier that uses the mini golf-ball-fittings - don't know if they make them for that or not. I suppose they probably do. And at a few quid each replacing all 6 bulbs in there would be stupidly expensive.
I was looking forward to this....
... in 1997, when I was 19 and had the time and inclination to play computer games. Now I'm 30 with wife and kids, I really couldn't give a flying damn. And therein lies the problem - those who remember the original game now won't give a shit (a few saddos non-withstanding), and those who are of gaming age won't have even heard of the original.
So the fact it's died should be no suprise and nobody should care either.
Now a new Llamasoft game on the other hand....
So when is this out?
My current contract is up next month and I actually want one (after months of thinking I'd never own one I had a play with my daughter's iPod Touch and think it's great). 32GB would be great, if the price is realistic.
BTW, AC: "Choontard" - Nice!
Surely the annual growth is not the point? The point is actually the increase in warmth to get it that 10% bigger. So by the time they'd all reached that size we'd pretty much have all died from being roasted to death anyway.
Still made me laugh though!
What happened to...
... Ozzie common sense? I really thought Ozland might be a good place to run to on the offchance that Labour win another election here (cos then we're all fucked).
What's next? Taking books out of libraries if they're not on approved reading lists?
Agree with AC above - exactly where can we move to that has a non-opressive government and some common sense? Sealand?
I pretty much agree with everything you said. I enjoyed the books and it took me 2 attempts at Neuromancer, too.
It's fiction, people. It doesn't have to be realistic. If anything, I don't WANT it to be realistic. Even Digital Fortress (definately the worst of the books).... I don't want accurate, boring descriptions of a geek using Unix: "Mark cursed as he accidentally typed the wrong arguments into Vi.". Give me exploding super-computers any day!
That a swarm of gun-toting officers will soon be raiding my local library and dragging away the old dear that works there, as she provides DVDs for rent (she even CHARGES for the ability to take it away and copy it! Talk about proceeds of crime!), and even has a photocopier to make copies of printed copyrighted works ON-SITE!
Surely an appeal will get this overturned as the biggest pile of horseshit ever to come out of a trial-room.
So it still takes 10 times longer than filling my tank with petrol then.
Ok it's cheaper, but take away the tax from fuel and it'd be about the same. If in 20 years everyone is driving leccy cars do you really think the Government is going to be happy about having no fuel tax income and no road tax income?
No. They'll just tax the shit out of you in some other way, so you might as well enjoy driving a proper car whilst you can.
Until it looks like a DeLorean I'm not interested.
So, you don't know what's on the list, but if you - or one of your users in the case of a forum - links to something that is on it you get fined.
How is this different to making up new laws with big fines for breaking them but then refusing to tell anybody what they are?
"Excuse me, sir, you've just violated the new law we didn't tell anybody about on not looking 56 times before crossing the street between the hours of 3pm and 4pm on a Monday. That'll be $5000 please".
Didn't Mr Burns already come up with this plan? Albeit to make money. And then he got shot. By a baby. What was my point again?
Did he listen to it once and then delete it like most other people did?
I've completely forgotten my password! How silly of me!
I know it's been said already but...
Thank you Rob Beard!
StoryMakers!! For ages I'd been bothered by the fact that I couldn't figure out who that was on Storymakers... and I'm huge RD fan. Must be the lack of teeth or something completely throwing me off the scent.
If they don't have enough bandwidth to provide the service then they should invest in some more.
Or, just limit everyone to 10MB per day, and cut them off then they reach it. Then the network won't be under strain.
Waste of time
ALL violins - without exception - sound f*****g awful.
That's the problem. I was thinking of popping into Currys later to get a Belkin TuneCast thing. On Amazon it's about £37. At dabs it's £35. Currys price? £69.99.
Obligatory XKCD link
He's right, you know
The BBC article quoted expert Torsten Jeworrek, who claimed: “Climate change has already started and is very probably contributing to increasingly frequent weather extremes and ensuing natural catastrophes.”
Spot on. He just missed out a couple of words: "Climate change has already started - approximately 6 billion years ago - and is very probably...."
Of course they are going to make it a new version. The reason being that Vista has such a bad rep (although personally I like it) that calling it Vista SE or whatever would be a disaster. Marketing it as a brand new version of Windows that fixes all of Vistas "issues" is far more likely to sell copies.
Plenty of people got Ipods for Christmas so installed Itunes and didn't untick the Safari box. Then they tried it out. Nothing to do with OSX.
