I use Zenphoto on a few sites.
Which one's Pink?
If they had any class they'd have made it look like a pig.
Larson-Green gets to drink free at the Ribbon Bar.
That's a stunningly beautiful piece of work. I hope someone sets up a fund where I can contribute to paying whatever fine they assess. They should hire him to do PR for the city. Well done, lad!
Not that pointy-eared dude
I remember the days when they were called vulcanologists, and a real man never went anywhere without a hammer.

I understand the view from the roof of the Oslo Radisson is great.
The one that converts to a parachute.
We need to know the sample size in olympic swimming pools.

According to the Grauniad, the rabbit has risen from the dead.
It wasn't dead after all, it was only pining for the smog-filled streets of Shanghai.
The moon is pregnant!
The rabbit died! You know what that means!
Won't someone think of the 3 million?
Comcast is allegedly going to "divest" of 3 million subscribers, apparently to limit the debt load of the "merger." What happens to them if there's no other cable/cable-Internet provider to pick them up?
My area was served by Adelphia (remember them?) until Comcast bought them up. I just know Comcast is going to kick us to the curb, and I am NOT going back to ATT DSL!
I was "born" in 1947. But that's all I can say about it.
Dude, where's my car?!
Now you know whom to call.
Honestly, the U.S. content isn't that great after several months. The DVD offerings are much better, but that's another USD8 a month. If they'd put their full catalog on streaming it would be great, but there may be licensing issues as well as the lure of getting people to double up on streaming + DVD rentals. They do have the entire first two seasons of "Sherlock" on streaming here, though. Good way to refresh before the third season began last Sunday.
Re: Why aren't they common carriers?
"For instance, interstate trucking is regulated as a common carrier by the Interstate Commerce Commission."
Trucking was deregulated with the abolishment of the ICC in 1995. While most trucking companies are still considered "common" carriers, because they will carry freight for anyone or any company (as opposed to "contract carriers"), in the U.S. the term mainly applies to telecommunications carriers.
Re: @ cornz 1
Just like when people ask you what you were doing on 9/11/2001, I can’t remember anything that happened on the 9th of October 13 years ago,
Uh, don't you mean the 9th of November?
Re: Militant P.C. Agenda is wearing thin...
"Be openly gay if you want to but please do not force your opinion that everyone should accept your behaviour."
I won't, if you promise not to force your opinion that I shouldn't call you a flaming homophobe.
How do you stop spam? You catch the spammers, incarcerate 'em and take their loot. The UN and NSA are wasting time chasing phantoms when there are serious problems with the Internet for which solutions and those capable of implementing them are many. OTOH, NSA has to sift through all that spam, so I suppose it's not all bad.
El Reg, your link broke the Intertubes!

You can't handle the truth
As usual, everyone gets it wrong. The kid was simply doing an experiment as research for his senior paper on Internet security.
Info you don't share is useless
NSA knew the full ID of at least two 9/11 hijackers who flew into and lived on the West Coast. But they only passed along first names to the FBI. We don't need more surveillance, we need smaller egos in the intelligence community.
Then fix the problem
They should have blamed the problem on NSA and GCHQ.

So, for a little while, the site was worth reading?

Dunno about the universe, but I'll bet his S.O. is flat.
Any truth to the rumors that Bill will be doing PR for O2?
In urinalism you can make up neologisms, scramble syntax,grammar and spelling to you're hart's content, deer, and be called creative. Coding is a discipline. No wonder Foxtongue has to attack it.
Re: Troll nostalgia
A troll on alt.www.webmaster tried the email-bomb tactic on me once. He worked for an ISP and left a trail. What he didn't know was, though I'd moved away, I knew his boss from when we were younger. Last laugh = Best laugh.
The medium is the message
I subscribed to Netflix a year ago but never have watched their self-produced shows. I wish their other streaming content had more recent films, which are available only on DVD. Hollywood is probably behind this though, not Netflix. I can't remember the last time I turned on my cable-connected TV. I can go to bed at 10 pm and watch my favorite late-night shows online the next day. There are messages here for content producers and providers. The smart ones will succeed, the others will go away, tapping their tablets and scratching their heads.
Edon, is that you?
Will be checking Netflix
Can't wait for the Blu-ray documentary of their adventures!
Re: of anyone wants to learn more or take a stand...
I got one of them to FAX his financial details to the US Dept of Justice!
If this story is only propaganda, it would be a huge propaganda coup for Kim to appear with her in public, at a concert perhaps. That would throw a pie in the face of Western media! Or at least officially deny the execution.
Yet on DPRK's official news site, http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm, updated yesterday, there is no mention of her or the execution.
It's happened here
When I superseded my boss at a high-tech firm they found him a do-nothing job, because he'd been with the company 14 years. Not that he had much to show for it. After a few months of getting paid to do nothing (but at least he was isolated from screwing up projects), he had a major stroke. At least we didn't have to see him anymore. A few years later I went out on my own and was contracting at a major New England computer manufacturer, that had a lifetime employment policy. Times were hard and experienced techs were driving forklifts. They hung on, hoping for a turn-around, but that never happened. These events happened 35-40 years ago. At least garbage gets recycled today; American workers are simply kicked out with hardly a thought.
That's fine, except only those on the inside know what others on the inside are doing. Like committing crimes against humanity and other similar misdemeanors. Had Manning not acted we'd never know any of what he revealed. The guy practically launched the Arab Spring, remember? There comes a point where your loyalty has to be to something more than a flag and an increasingly disreputable gang masquerading as a national government.
The idea wasn't to destroy data. The idea was to convey the message: "We can enter your premises at any time and destroy whatever we like. Or force you to destroy your kit while we watch."
This episode was relatively low key, and you may well laugh about it. But it's a first step on the road to a Very Bad Place.
Their site's working over here. BTW, you Brits would appreciate a sign I noticed in front of the local Home Depot today:
If terrorists do not exist, the Security State will have to invent them.
Cue the terror alert
How convenient that Reuters is reporting imminent al Qaeda attacks on European high-speed trains? The puppetmasters are working overtime.
What have you told NSA about me?
All the news that fits
Oh, was the New York Times offline today?
"So long, and thanks for all the memories."

Which logo will represent "Get your asses into the office. No more distance employment!"?
What's really going on here?
"Updated Firefox Logo"
Oh, dear. Does Mozilla have "new headquarters" envy? If you can't build a spaceship, hack up the logo?
Re: Draft dodger
I hate to defend Mel Gibson, but he was born in 1956. The Draft was turned off when Gibson was 17, so he never would have been drafted.
Understand, his audience consists of people who own neither iOS or Android devices, the tools of the effete and elite. Cell phones don't work well from inside mobile homes and the crystal meth dealer lives in the next row. These people are full of free-floating fear and anger. To them, Limbaugh comes across as an alternate intellectual, their own personal deity. When you're dealing with a demographic like that, being intelligent and well-informed is a handicap.
"He is eligible for a limited validity passport good for direct return to the United States."
Wow, never saw one of those! Bet he could unload it for a fortune on eBay. Help cover the legal fees.
I'd rather have coffee that's 10 times less expensive. Starbucks is too pricey for this caffeine-aholic.
