FX570 was a superb calculator
Plus the hex function meant you could spell FAECEE5.
Kids today, etc.
It does make you wonder what sort of hardware our banking network is running on.
I've read some horror stories that suggest some of it is built on very very old hardware indeed.
You could argue that 8 was the longest serving.
Since the time between him and 9 appearing on TV was far longer than any of the others were around.
"Sarah Palin is a hot-looking babe, not white trash at all!"
No. Just no.
Magenta cock-alike for the win!
Just imagine it throbbing on the launch pad, before thrusting for the sky and finally, flopping back down to earth, it's payload spent.
The only thing I got from this is that parts of Philadelphia
look like bits of northern industrial towns here in the UK. Even down to the terraced streets, which is weird and looks out of place somehow in the good old US of A. Like someone plonked Coronation Street in the Fresh Princes old stomping ground (pre Bel-Air, of course).
I think this project is generally a good idea, especially if it provokes debate and maybe makes someone think twice before they make an unnecessary comment to a lady.
In my day you doffed your hat to a lady and left it at that. If she was interested she dropped a 'kerchief for you to retrieve and you went from there, chaperone permitting of course.
Whoever devised quick time events
should be made to sit on the stairs for an hour and think about what they've done.
I still think this would make a good sitcom.
For extra creepiness, Ricky Gervais could play Julian Assange, hanging around the office, making paper planes, playing Solitaire and perving over the secretaries.
We just need to get over there and restart the engines then the grand tour of the galaxy can begin.
A big magenta cock would look great soaring through the skies.
Remember, 3 pubes per ball.
A Solid Gold House
and a rocket car.
I wonder if she inherited his hair?
Fortunately she doesn't seem to have inherited his looks.
Phil Collins was once described as permanently looking like he had a stocking pulled over his face.
The soundtrack to GTA was a thing of beauty. I used to have a copy I played in the car.
Don't forget Matt Berry
Re: Gabe Newell
He'll pass. The conditions of his contract stipulate delivery of Half Life 3 before the end of the century.
>"Given how tiny they are" -- Given that they [MicroSD cards] are made from metal it would be extremely easy to find with one of their metal detector wands. If you hid it in your luggage it would be likely be located within 30 seconds and removed within a minute or two.
If you hid it in or near a metallic part of your luggage, how would they know? The wands are pretty general about where metal is and unless there are clear signs of tampering they're probably going to miss it?
The plot of this sounds suspiciously like that of 'Lifeforce'.
I wonder if the makers watched Quatermass and thought, lets make that, only with a naked woman wandering about and vampires.
Re: Stock Market
'big greasy moose dick.'
I doff my cap to you, sir.
I have a 7 button mouse for gaming which is probably as many buttons as I'll ever need on a mouse.
Never really enjoyed using Apple mice though, always found them a bit uncomfortable and the one button restrictive. (Almost like they were trying to prove a point). Which is weird 'cos if you plugged in a 3 button MS mouse you could use the other buttons just like you can on a PC (or you could, it's a few years since I tried).
I believe newer Apple mice have other options like some sort of side grips to access other functions?
You dodged the issue of where you're from nicely there..
You can get real meat kebabs in the UK, used to go to a place in Sheffield that did amazing lamb kebabs with big chunks of lamb, mmmmmm.
Sounds like most of your English eating experiences have been post-pub. When your hangover subsides, have a look round and there are some fabulous eating places in GB.
Re: When I'm feeling frisky, I like to add pepperoni under the cheese for that budget pizza taste.
I don't know whether to be happy or not, why are you crying?
When I'm feeling frisky, I like to add pepperoni under the cheese for that budget pizza taste.
For the Hestons amongst you, before adding the cheese, spread a layer of pesto on the toast, then add the cheese and some Worcestershire sauce. Works well with a good mature cheddar or tasty Lancashire cheese (not too hard or it doesn't melt properly).
I love cheese on toast.
Re: Baby steps
I like the way you shoehorned some EDL style politics into a discussion about ISP content filtering. Clever wording - cheers.
Ha ha, this remnds me. I have
a drawing database that started life in Paradox, moved on to MS Access and currently resides in MS Excel. Twenty two years that database has been alive in one form or another. It's older than my kids.
Paris, cos her most famous work has probably been converted into dozens of different formats, ensuring her place in cinematic history.
It makes no sense to this user to upset your core...
... business with something that only really satisfies one form factor.
That form factor being the one the majority of your users are not working with.
Re: Not quite so...
Psssst. Sick of Adobe? Give Corel Draw a punt, you can even try it out for free for 30 days IIRC.
Mentioned it on the forums last time this brouhaha reared its head. Does what Photoshop and Illustrator does, only cheaper.
Its major advantage over the GIMP is that it is not GIMP (i.e. the UI makes some kind of sense).
Most people will just install or use the apps they like or are most comfortable using.
I have a load of crap added by Orange on my current cheap as chips San Diego. I ignore or disable the useless stuff (Orange Wednesdays is the only Orange app that gets any regular use) and just use the features I like. Surely most people do this?
It's a much more homogeneous experience on iPhones I'm sure, but being tied into Apple's walled garden doesn't appeal.
I still don't know anyone that has a Windows phone, apart from the ones on the adverts (Holly Willoughby and that big lad out of Gavin and Stacy). I'm sure they're fantastic.
Well I'll eat it if no-one else will.
A burger prepared by SCIENCE has far greater appeal than one prepared by a spotty youth.
Re: Windows Phone+ is a poor name
What, like Zune?
Metro always looked useless to me as a desktop UI.
The advert showing on TV at the moment sums it up, lots of swiping and arm waving in an exciting 'Minority Report'/'CSI' style and some guff about space and birds. The result of all this faffing about?
A high score in a Star Wars themed version of Angry Birds.
The entire advert sells the product as something you can do on your phone with a flick of your finger, instead of more arm waving than Magnus Pyke* at a rave. Let's face it, unsexy office type stuff is what Windows should do best, pretty much everything else they try is dad dancingly embarrassing. Haven't tried a Windows phone, but I'll take your word for it that they're good. Holly Willoughby likes hers at any rate.
*one for our younger readers.
Re: Battlefield 3/4 - Star Wars ???
FWIW BF3 hasn't been working properly for about 3 days now, constantly booting players out of the game due to EA's fucked up server system. Fucking clueless. Message says they are aware and working on the problem, shit happens.
Re: Corel is where old software goes to die ...
Cobblers. It's decent software, we use it in parallel with CS and it does most of the same jobs just slightly differently.
Re: Somebody PLEASE!!!!
Have a look at Corel Draw. It does pretty much what CS does, not all of it as well, but you don't have to pay monthly and Corel Photopaint comes bundled. It's a sight better than GIMP.
Re: They didn't
Ah right. As you were then.
You are Barry Kripke and I claim my five pounds.
You have to admire the cheek of them naming their
fake advertising network BadNews.
Being picky here, but he could have spent a bit longer on the case design.
It looks like a banana box. That said, it's an epic achievement indeed!
Re: Pilot can regain controll
If the hacker can control what the cockpit display is showing, how does a pilot know he isn't flying in the wrong direction?
This assumes the pilot knows his aircraft has been hacked. I suppose he could navigate by the sun / stars, but if the hacker was smart he could put the heading out by a few degrees and you'd soon be way off course..
Re: I don't get it
You'd need to put the same energy in at the other end to stop. Perhaps it uses too much energy?
You would be travelling a lot faster but the window for turnaround would be far smaller. Wouldn't want to overshoot as it's a long walk home...
Would it not make more sense to launch it in parts?
That way there is less risk to the whole project if one part is lost. Or is one launch less risk than three?
Re: Beer, because at 1p off, why not?
On the positive side though, beer!
Re: About to pull the trigger on a gaming PC
I did this with my last machine. They (Computer Planet) did an excellent job with the cabling, (all my builds looked like spaghetti in comparison..) I got the machine I wanted ready to roll out of the box. Definitely going to do the same thing next time.
Re: welcome to th 1990'2
Obvious troll is obvious.
Play BF3 on a PC or BF3 on an X-Box? No contest, PC wins every time*, even with crappy EA Origin doing its best to spoil everything. Better graphics, more players and FPS are much more fun with a mouse and a keyboard.
*I have played both and it's a much better experience on PC
