All to attempt to craft a silk purse?
to state the obvious, for those who already know, that it still will not fit into an Altoids tin.
Mine's the one that rattles, its full of empty Altoids tins.
Who will be cast to play Darl?
Yes, if one is a complete loser, but should he happened to have won any games, no lives would be lost, and friends can give lives to one another, last I checked I had a couple of hundred I could "cash" in. Likely I have so many as I never play. to busy being a Commentard.
No, in Canada and the USA, there is something called Hot Italian Sausage...its certainly not Chorizo. And sadly not something we have found as yet in the UK. Its basically ground pork (no fillers!) and seasoning. Here's a recipe - in which I assume the paprika is hot, not mild.
I have this strange idea, that when the battery runs out, as you descend from 4500m - it will come down quite quickly.
"There's many sociopaths in our society and they hide in plain site." - indeed, I think most politicians and corporate leaders would pass a "Are you a sociopath" test with flying colours!
And there's the issue, he did change the lyrics, and he did make a video. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend, it is, as Bowie himself put it, "the most poignant version".
So glad to see its back up for people to enjoy.
(Yeah, I'm a Canadian in the UK, and I used to be a space cadet).
Groooooooan....that was terribly punny!
Both saying... "I demand the cone of silence!" Hmmm, perhaps that's the tech Bose speak of, it is from te midish 60's?
What would not expect anything less from the illustrious Ian Duncan Smith - he's following the maxim of "in order to maintain the appearance of competence in your position, surround yourself with those less competent than yourself" to a tee! I swear he must have pictures of the PM in some very compromising positions in order to still be part of the Cabinet.
Said the actress to the bishop?
Um, no we're not. That would be American (or Canadian) football. We're talking about millionaires throwing a ball through a hoop, much like a game with large plush toy prizes one see's at a carnival.
Perhaps, well more like indeed and a dirty one at that, however he is one sickly rich douché!
Um, not exactly...Apple's proprietary, and, until recently, closed-source codec is lossless - Apple Lossless Audio Codec or ALAC for short, or even better - ALE (Apple Lossless Encoder).
You must be confusing that with the codec sharing the same .m4a extension (and the same container) which is Advanced Audio Coding, the successor to mp3, not developed by Apple at all, but a consortium including Sony, Dolby and Nokia along with Bell Labs and the Fraunhofer institute. Though to be fair to your comment that is the default codec on pretty much every Apple device out there.
There's an app for that, Hailo.
Trevor - an informative post ruined by a rather unclever attempt at comedic hyperbole - to whit: "For the real nutjobs looking to engage in chemical lobotomy ...however is roughly as stupid as drinking 190 proof Everclear straight from the bottle." and a completely false statement: "The leaves of the marijuana plant are generally only used by enthusiasts who need "filler" to mix in with the buds that they smoke. There is no value (and a lot of downsides) to smoking what is essentially hemp fibres. (Just pick up a rug and smoke it. That's basically what smoking a marijuana leaf would net you.)". The source of hemp fibre are the fibrous (oh there's hint in there!) stems and not the leaves. While the leaves do not contain nearly as much THC as the female flowers (or male flowers for that matter), they, and to a far lesser extent, those fibrous stems, do contain THC.
I'll grant you that, glad I don;t have one though.
@Jess "though it most certainly won't work on my Mac. (Because chrome isn't available for it.)"
Wow, just wow - what are you running on your mac? Chrome on Mac supported on OSX up to three years old. http://www.google.com/mac/
It may not be our stone or our shoe...but its costing us quite a few £ to keep an eye out for a bloody stone!
its called the second amendment. Though tragically most Americans think its about the right to own and carry firearms and shoot each other than overthrowing a possibly corrupt and fascist government.
Ah, QEMM how we loved you.
Mine's the one with multiple config.sys files hand tailored to run various programs.
and eat most of them.
I won't eat this glop, its dead Jim.
I think psychopathic is the more correct term for what his behaviour indicates. But he's certainly one fascinating psycho!g
I bet @LarsG's side starts with "Do you want to earn £££'s working from home?"
Mines the one with no canned meat in the pocket.
Oh the irony...are you proud to be the first poster and quote the bible baddly?
"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall."
Oh oh, double irony alert...I'm fallinggggggg.......
Paris as she thinks irony is something is something one of her PA's does.
to the term "talking out your ass".
What Dave said. Android blows for musical work, not playback, but anything requiring psuedo-real-time control of audio.
'cause apparently Paris is not much good at real time audio control either.
"Linux and Mac users can get the same tool from Metasploit directly." - I don;t see anything for OSX on the Metasploit website, just Windows and Linux.
Wow, those would be some serious Business Conduct Guideline violations...I wonder if anyone got RA'd for that ;)
I love El Reg.
Paris, 'cause she's all about the love baby!
Awesome reference to a fine fine film...ah, Rowdy Roddy Piper...a fine Canadian. Time to get *your* glasses.
I'm a Yak, not a reindeer you insensitive clod!
quote: "On our last trip over the border we found that you can buy curds _everywhere_. Small stores have bags on the counter as if they were chewing gum or sweets."
...and in some places they are still warm as they were only made that morning, and they squeek...and that my friends is what you need to make real poutine - fresh squeeky curds. All else is just a greasy mess of chip gravy and cheese.
..the bounty hunter...oh wait, he was denied entry due to a previous murder conviction and missed Celebrity Big Brother...which is what this is turning into.
I salute your 4 digit slashdot ID sir! Mine is in the low 6's (113531) , wish I got in a little sooner!
But not your right shoe?
He'd have to pry that one out of his mouth to see if it measures up.
@Robert - root your device and install whatever you want, its all mostly legal...you can probably even drop JellyBean on there, might want to wait a while til a stable version gets released put through it paces and all.
The issue may be warranty related, but if you are careful you won't brick it, right? I rooted and unlocked my Nexus S and I am only just over a year into my two year Vodafone contract...no worries ;)
"Honey, did you put the new USB hub in the fridge? I can't find any sockets to plug the milk in!
Mines the one with the smell of stale milk emanating from it.
Downvote for not reading the article - its NOT outsourcing, its off-shoring. Subtle difference, but different none the less. The rest is pretty spot on though!
Mines the one with the "thanks for all your years of service, now get back to training your off shore replacement." card.
For quite some time now, people have been complaining about the lack of decent audio latency in Android, people who might want to hack together some musical application for instance. According to this: http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=4971761 - they have still not addressed the audio latency issues. for shame Google for shame! When and if I buy a tablet (or my next smartphone) it won't be one with audio latency issues.
I was being rather sarcastic, an A is all that will suffice for security, and even then....one never knows.
C is not a passing grade when it comes to site security?
The company providing this device has been around for a few years and the iBrain itself since 2010. The fellow who started it received a PHD for a one page thesis. The company leadership is him and three very experienced legal advisers. I doubt Apple will be suing him anytime soon.
Bah, sapphire glass is so naughties...they should have used Yttria-stabilized zirconia.
It is not the Supreme Court or the US Supreme Court, it is SCOTUS (Supreme Court Of The United States), which sounds a bit dirty like scrotum, and for good reason. Its bollocks. When a member leaves, the current power clique gets to appoint the new one.
Maybe I need to read the article again to find out how exactly Bill Gates is related to this current case?
Dogs, fleas, laying down and all that.
Paris, since there's no fleas on *that* dog!
