So, you're saying that we were definitely not created by a God(ess) or some other deity?
I don't think our Great boffins know that much of the universe to say 'we definitely arrived by chance'. As for religion, many who make fun of those who blindly follow religion are just as much nutters. They blindly believe in science theories, barely knowing the minimum, just because the rest of the folks follow it.
Religion or not, we're broken at the genetic level.
Now let's all wait for our true saviour, The Black Monolith.
Re: My bot fancies your bot...
I just hope my bot doesn't get any dirty diseases, or impregnates someone else's bot.
One of my favourite dishes since I was a kid. Though, I personally prefer Spinach puree as it tastes nicer, ooo and some chicken or lamb.
Perhaps I'm being hopeful, but hopefully there's some hope in Spartan being good and not-so-bloaty. For a long time I have hoped they would do this, oh and rewrite their OS -- but that isn't gonna happen but here's hoping.
Re: Who else?
They may _believe_ they were abducted by aliens, but it's more likely to have been a particularly vivid dream
Agree about the vividly dream. Had I not woken up from my extremely vivid dream I seriously would have thought the government has some mind control programme. The dream sure felt real.
By "Universal", they mean "Runs on Windows Phone and Windows RT".
I, too, hope the USGov wins. But in my dream, the American companies, lose the faith of EU citizens and governments, oh and quite a bit of money and hopefully this F's up the World Police, I mean USA.
Re: I would love total equality in the workplace (IT or otherwise)
Putting 'Wife' in speech marks makes me question if she exists or if you don't consider her to be suitable to be called a wife.
He has a point. Twitter is like public announcements. If you don't want anyone knowing you're suicidal then don't post...but then the four percent kinda means this post is pointless.
The good news is Microsoft has prolly got a crap-loads of useful stuff. The bad news is they suck at the execution, kinda like my jokes.
Re: He Got Too Much
Then There's the fact that misspelling occurs without realising. Turd happens.
Yeah, didn't you know? CCTV actually records high def, sends it off to the local spooks, but only gives the user a low def version..
Looking forward to these selfie-cars.
No, no. That's the "supermodel". I know what you're going to ask and yes, I cringed a little.
This is a stupid idea!
Until they actually produce something similar and, to our surprise, it sells, then it's a great idea and, like, so totally obvious.
Re: S*** happens.
In ANY group of people there will be a number of total c***s.
And the only one who can stop them is a d**k, because..err...
...except the current weight of the HGV.
It is possible to calculate the weight assuming the following is known:
- Model of the HGV
- Characteristics of the HGV suspension springs, such as spring stiffness, original length with no cargo
- Calculating the length of the suspension spring is precise and accurate
By calculating the force:
Change in Force = Spring Stiffness x Change in Spring Length.
You can find the mass of the cargo:
Change in Force = Change in Mass x g
Divide Force by g (~10m/s2) you could calculate the mass of what's inside.
Re: Don't get it.
I was going to say "Quite surprised no has up-voted you yet." but then I checked the post time and it wasn't that long ago.
"Because the individual did something important and isn't a white male" is still, of itself, a form of sexism.
We, as a nation, go in one extreme to balance out our previous equally extreme but opposite position. It is a shame. We are sexist to men just because our nation was sexist to women. We are racist to whites just so non-whites can't shout racism. We can't seem to find a middle ground until it's too late.
It shouldn't matter what gender, race, etc the individual is, or isn't.. Only what the individual has done. Until we can get to that point, our society is still irrecoverably sexist.
Completely agree. We should treat each other fairly, which to a large extent means equally but it's not always the case. But I think our country is also, to an extent, racist as well as sexist. I mean racist to whites. I've never tried it but I'm sure if I, with my ethnic origin being Pakistani, played the race card I'd get much more sympathy even if I was in the wrong. That's not to say people aren't racist to non-whites, but that racism to whites wouldn't be treated equally.
Re: "Justin Bieber! Nobody f%$king neeeeeeds yaaaa...."
tarnishing his previous "cute kid from Canada" image.
Well, I'm sure at some point artists don't really want to be seen with kids any more...in both meanings.
Re: I have a problem
Not to forget the Tories considered Nelson Mandela to be a terrorist, so there you go.
@AC : 19:13
Can Lancashire join you? The people in power think London is a separate country.
Re: And where will all this money go ?
To be fair, with the exception of VEVO, most of the other music videos are from 'fans' with the obligatory 'I DO NOT OWN THIS. COPYRIGHT BELONGS TO X' admission-of-guilt written somewhere near the video.
I suspect it's an opt-in for users like VEVO---or something like that.
BOOM, because, I like b-bombs.
Sigh, Windows X RT is confusing the average user with Windows X. So they could call it Windows Phone X, but then saying a tablet runs Windows Phone is weird because it can't call. Unless they call it Windows Mobile, for stuff that are mobile, but then that will confuse people with the older phone OS and again, most will think you can call from it. So maybe Windows Go.
Re: "Where it already has taken us, surely?"
Sigh, the country's in the shitter. Let's scrap it and start again. Britain 2.0.
To be fair, they don't make "dumb" phones like they used to. The ones now are, perhaps, designed more for the ageing society than any other and if you can remember what it was like in school, you wouldn't want a phone that was ugly and uncool.
Since everyone else is ranting
I just wanna digress and complain about those fuckin' cable/satellite broadcasters like Sky who fuckin' force you into paying for those expensive channel subscriptions, subscribing to "OMG over 500 channels!!", even though you just want to watch half of a dozen. South Park got it right.
Re: And so it begins...
So.... when is Team America 2: World Wide Web Police coming out?
Re: "We don't intervene against anyone...
But isn't that the case with any government?
Re: So the actual 'scandal' here...
Kinda reminds me of Futurama:
Leela: Fry, we have a crate to deliver.
Fry: Well let's just dump it in the sewer and say we delivered it.
Bender: Too much work. Let's burn it and *say* we dumped it in the sewer.
Re: Excuse me but
He? Don't you mean 'she'?
What's wrong with DAB radio? (Just curious)
Obviously the blame lies with the terrorists. If they were clever enough to find alternative ways into the airport, other than the front door, the management would find the entrance a risk. Still, I doubt the Taliban or Al Qaeeda will utilise the chance until it's too late, obviously a stupid bunch of people who like to claim failed attempts.
Re: It isn't about watching porn!
what IS porn
Easy, whatever offends those in power.
Power Corrupts. And Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Re: ISP can chose what they want to supply to customers
1. Looking at porn is not illegal.
Unless you're under 18. Not that that stops them from seeking porn, willingly. They say it is to stop them from watching extreme porno, in which case maybe it's time they should start using the TV License to fund some non-extreme porno and give this to the ones going through puberty, maybe via those SexEd lessons.
I can't tell if you are trolling or not? Whilst at college, those who studied Law, or something, went America and all brown-skinned men were randomly selected for the security checks. So either skin colour has something to do with profiling, or all middle-eastern looking people look shifty,
...its all about cultures...
Wait, wouldn't that be offensive?
But, of course, you are trolling, right?
Inspiration comes from many things. As long as it hasn't been done before or is obvious to those in the industry, it can be patented.
Re: Not pseudo-1998... but very "several years old" looking in general
I'm assuming the site's just temp.
Re: How big !.
What happened to Windows just being 11mb and fitting on a few floppy discs.
Well, the world no longer uses floppy disks and stuff has got faster/bigger. And Windows has got Shinier.
Re: Utter BS
What the customer wants is not necessarily what they really want. Still, looks like MS messed up one or another.
Re: A train-wreck in the making
"Except the iWatch. That's more than a watch."
Re: Finger on the trigger
Regarding Android, the OS doesn't cost money for them to integrate it, but integrating Google Play and other Apps does.
I doubt they'll leave as they might be paying MS for royalty fees to use android and might get a deal on licensing WP.
