These chopped up taxi's aren't just shit
They are uber shit!
*the one with the London A to M in the pocket
OK several things that I simply must vent at.
The police cannot currently catch people using mobile phones, how long has that been in force? In fact the last dick head to cut me up on my motocycle was on the phone, this was three days ago. I instantly recognised that the pillock was a police officer, he had kindly labled his car as such. He didn't like me much when I reminded him that he shouldn't be on the phone, and when he got a little bit cocky and aggressive I pointed out that all his actions are on film.
Glancing at a watch is no more distracting than glancing at the dash, spedo, odo etc.
However, I suppose it depends what's on the watch. Technically driving with a satnav stuck on your windscreen is also illegal but the old bill don't seem to care much for that.
As for IAM, I thought that was cat biscuits.
Re: Sufficient lift?
I was actually pondering the same thing myself, and I am sure that this was computed.
But every time I try and think I remember stratodangle and for some reason that makes me smile, I like the word stratodangle.
If the worst does happen then just remember that falling is just flying to the ground really quickly.

How do you work out in space which is the top of anything?
Re: only my opinion
It would still be a shed project if the Spanish types had allowed the precious permits.
Re: At the risk of being downvoted to hell
Erm, that was the point, I know it's Monday but please try to start with humour.
Hmm I think it's time for an update.
Maybe that should be the next weekend editions Big Data piece
Re: At the risk of being downvoted to hell
Try working out what that is after Two Years!
£50PM = £12000
£75PM = £18000
Wow, that was easier than I thought, and I did it without a calculator.
Of course your idea of how much a contact costs is way off the mark, but don't let facts get in the way of your posting.
Re: Friday afternoon?
Erm it's the weekend edition, it's like the register but on a weekend. There was a memo, if you didn't get the memo then you obviously don't stop by enough.
I'm glad that LOHAN has PANTS
Beers all round
Well done that man
If Scotland leaves the union and there is a stipulation that all helpdesk calls will be answered by someone in the UK what happens to the helpdesk?
I guess that
I am the only person that wants a watch.
Thanks Weekend Edition
I have just had to explain to Mrs Gnome why I was laughing. I tried to explain that's Dabbsy used to be a Friday thing but he now lives in my pocket at the weekend. She had a read and then declared, is it everyone it IT that's like this?
Special something or other
Am I the only one that read the SBS as SPB and was wondering how Lester and gang could fare, and then I remembered oh yeah drones!
Re: I'm Sad
Totally surprised - I know you SPB guys are fuelled on bacon baps and strong tea.
that my BAPS didn't make the short list.
Re: Help me Obi-wan Kenobi...
What has a unit of mass got to do with it?
But the good news is......
Oh hang on there isn't good news. The likes of Britain First will be on this ruling and peddling hate in a comedic hey it's a parody way.

All these complaints and....
Not one about the size of the bloody dinosaur!
Oooh not long now
and I might enjoy 2G speeds at my rural retreat on the Norfolk Broads......hahaha who am I kidding, none of the operators have managed to get anything other than patchy reception between Salhouse and Acle.
Re: Use this to bribe the Spanish official who is blocking this...
I don't think you can use Kickstarter for bribes, can you?
If you can find
the quick easy option to complain about service or lack thereof then you get a gold medal.
EE doesn't have a status page telling you about faults, when you dial 150 you get a convoluted menu system that seems to be all about money and not about rectifying an issue.
However, you need to keep on at them, complaint handlers will give you a direct dial or email address that filters to a case handler. Although you have to fight them, and you should need the hassle.
I was able to to get 20% off my bill for the time I am with them as I stuck to complaining. But it took a month and made me a bit angry. Although i never swore when speaking to them, but I did heap on the sarcasm, and did quote snippets of their own statements back at them in a totally snarky way.
I've just pledged
And on Thursday I am guesting on a scifi podcast and am hoping to promote LOHAN as my geek pick of the week.
This damn ship will fly!
I never mentioned the dog had copyright, but rather couldn't be seen to break any copyright laws for the same reasons as he couldn't hold copyright.
If an animal cannot claim copyright, then it cannot infringe copyright.
*as of now my fish are downloading snide copies guardians of the galaxy, and bugger me they are actually burning them to disc. I have decided not to stop them, because if I interfere with what they are doing then I am an accomplice. I just hope they don't sell them at a car boot fare.
So, lets say I let my guide dog into the cinema with me, and he happens to be wearing a camera. As long as he is in a US cinema then I cannot be done for copyright infringement when he films the blockbuster that I am going to see (listen to)
Did the primate in question pop to the Amazon shop (yeah I know) and purchase the camera?
Also, if I stole a camera (or my guide dog) and we took photo's and then handed it back and the owner won a competition with the photo's that I took, then would he be infringing any rules? It seems to me that the Americans have sided with the Americans, who would of thunk it?
**I don't have a guide dog, but I see a scam on the horizon
I do hope Simon isn't double parked in that picture.
That's like a forfeit or something!
Totally agree - bloody whine whine whine
Suck it up commentards, when kickstarter goes live I expect to see your grubby mits stuffing Lester's thong with fivers!
Re: So why isn't his nickname...
it possibly is, as his middle name just happens to be Winston.
Not funny, but truth seldom is
Jeez internet, just let it go.
I mean, who hasn't done that......
I tried my best to get through the whole first article and failed.
Today I managed just page one.
I love the detail, and appreciate the work that has gone into it, but this needed to be a mini series and not a magnum opus.
If you was an iPhone user then I am sure you would understand, other phones seem clunky by comparison. So whilst the budget model (and I use that term loosely for the c) is a cracking phone the actual cost for the top of the range model is worth it.
Please refer to the Top Gear Porsche argument.
Re: About what it's worth...
I've used a 5c for about a year, and as a slightly camp straight man I am totally in love with my yellow apple. Software works, it has a good amount of storage and the camera is bloody good. Would I but the S? Absolutely, the c was great for people like me that wanted one but didn't want one. The 6s will get my money because I want want, and I want the best one.
What's the betting that my quiet Norfolk broads village gets a supercharge station before fibre to cabinet?
give me the damn kickstarter link already!
I promise cash for stuff!
"making this a decent device for Skype calls or quick snaps when out and about, if swinging about with a 12-inch screen does not put you off"

Tablets should not ever be used for photography, NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER.
In fact a law should be passed that permits you to smash it out of the wielders hands.

Re: Train Reception
Hasn't Dave PM said he wants 4G masts along the rails so he can keep tabs on the populous or summink?
I wonder if Mrs gnome would let me bolt a space plane to my MPV?
Jolly well done all ---->
Oh, and did you decide on your tree protector backronym thing?
It's simple, what we all need is a DNA lock.
Then we wouldn't need a PIN, and the thieves would need a vial of blood or summink.
Oh hang on............I think I have just legitimised police assisting people down the stairs.
I pay my council tax, so answer the damn question already!
How many times has sacrifice come up as a legitimate answer for getting housing approved?
I think the main issue is that if you are giving a presentation these days then the audience of tie wearing free sandwich munchers assume that that you are a project leader. And we know how supremely awesome they are.

Maple syrup eggy bread with peanut butter and cheese (extra mature) it's simply awesome
Pancakes or waffles with cheese and fried egg is also for the win.
Basically we should go into business as potato croquettes are the king of potato breakfast items, unless you are sitting down to an Olympic at little chef.
As for vege products, basically quorn all the way if you can handle the incredibly loud farting afterwards. Fake bacon is OK, but only if you like the taste of frazzles. If you are having a vege fry up then have everything else in a bigger portion size and side step the meat.
