Re: Good job Iain-Duckegg-Smith doesn't work at Tescos.
The thicko in me had to look up the meaning of the word 'tautology'
This is a good start, I'm pleased to see Sourceforge responding in a fairly positive manner.
Re: Crosses several boxes for me
Currently it is iOS only, but there are plans for an Android app on its way by the end of the year.
Happy Birthday Alistair, have a pint.
Well done GIMP peeps, I wish more outfits would take a stance against this cloaked spam crap.
Re: give me a dislike button
Personally, I don't think it warrants historical status, I'm neutral regarding Apple, but I just think this is silly.
Steve was a bloke that started a business.
As I said, seriously?

"Now, if only someone could come up with the baconsarniesmade..."
Just get this baby and put a timer on your plug socket:
Xerox can put forward a very simple defence. They use their own copiers, you know, the ones that screw up the OCR and change numbers.
If anyone needs a reference.... http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2013/08/06/xerox_copier_flaw_means_dodgy_numbers_and_dangerous_designs/
That is all.
Is this an advert?
I think they have taken enough liberties already
Re: How do you like your porridge?
Um, sharing a cell with Fletcher...

How do you like your porridge?
"It is virtually impossible to use the data to get directly access to the bank accounts of those affected,"
I do like it when words like "virtually" are used, it is either possible or impossible there should be no grey areas.
"Kissing the vibrator"
Were there any extra curricular activities?
We need to know and see the video!
Tencent in China - 10TB
Now that is impressive, but how secure?
I guess the NSA can't rummage through your files there......
"The UK's spending watchdog has scolded the Department for Work and Pensions for so far wasting £34m of taxpayer money"
I thought they would be praised for wasting so little compared to other projects that ran over budget, failed, were crap etc...
I don't use Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, all a waste of time in my opinion as I'm a consumer not a product for their advertising chums.
"The Register has very kindly done the legwork for the Mail by passing on the details of the blunder to the ICO."
heh heh, have a pint
"However, Xerox says that the problem is essentially due to the settings users have put into individual copiers"
Nope, the problem is due to the corners cut by Xerox. Modern digital Multi Functional Devices should replicate what is being copied or scanned without interfering with the content.
Placing the blame on the user is a pretty poor way of excusing an inferior product.
"A CSC spokesman told The Register that no redundancies are planned"
They forgot to include the word 'yet'.
How long before CSC announce a rationalisation of the chimps and hundreds get booted out of the safari park?
I stand corrected, my apologies, I am a little hard of thinking...
Upvote for the correction
Why am I not surprised?
My company has partnered with BB in the past and I was, how should I put it, somewhat surprised at their aggressive nature in pursuing the ££'s even at the detriment to the client.
Abstain - To refrain from something by one's own choice.
Based on that definition I think the abstained votes should not be count for or against.
If I was going to outsource to this bunch of mercenaries I would make sure that the contract included a clause stopping the work and jobs being sent outside of the UK forever and not for a fixed term.
I thought something was going on. I noticed that one of their two warehouses in Northamptonshire had shut down around three weeks ago.
That is all.
"Last year, Wandering Dago was denied a permit to sell food at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, on similar grounds"
Maybe they should of taken the hint and gone for a name change.....
"According to the PCS, HP is transferring those Sheffield roles to Newcastle and north of the border to Erskine to bag a multi-million pound grant from the Scottish government."
And that is why Scottish Gov should tell HP to sod off.
But they won't because that would be an ethical action.
No video, but the Daily Fail has some crappy photos....
So it isn't just UK Gov that is incompetent....
Why would any government/official body/corporation use cloud services anyway?
The next broadcast of this movie will be 6PM tomorrow at Kings Cross station.
It is also known as the Northampton Lighthouse, coined by Terry Wogan
"so the promise of local employment in the event of site closure should calm nerves."
What a load of crap. Capita will just wait a year or so and then start shunting the jobs overseas as they usually do.
So, does this mean Eadon has got start being nice to Microsoft?
Re: A Very Good Thing Indeed.
"A bit drastic, but in the Ol' US of A, there's already so many of them, they're starting to trample each other chasing ambulances!"
Nope, they are bloody well driving them now!!
