Has anyone thought to.....
ask Stephen Fry?
I refuse to read this
....and will simply wait 2 years until Mr Dabbs is ill.
*welcome back tecnotart
Does this mean the Register will be opening a shop to sell this tat? How about a tat shop that gives to that there malaria charity?
Because I would have a cup, and a car sticker, a bonnet sticker wrap and also some motorcycle helmet stickers (notice I specified motorcycle)
regulation pitch sized?
The length of a pitch must be between 100 yards (90m) and 130 yards (120m) and the width not less than 50 yards (45m) and not more than 100 yards (90m)
Maybe you could tell the full story rather than just the 33% you have actually written.
Sometimes I feel that you actually like the way your inbox fills up.
My fingers are too fat for swipe keyboards, and my accent too northern for talk to type apps.
I need a P.A.
erm it's all well and good but...
Can it print me a tasty cake?
The clue is - Dual Carriageway and Bus
I realise you were probably too busy texting your facebook or something to notice.
I actually blogged a similar thing a couple of years ago, I like that Mt Fry likes tech, I like cricket and have very strong opinions on it. I will comment on cricket too, and sometimes I will even blog about it. This however doesn't make me a cricketer, and any cricketers out there could quite easily take some sort of trentsbridge with what I say.
Give the guy a break.
Re: "Zoom in just there..."
Can we get a clearer angle?
Sure, we can just pull it from that reflection!
Re: "The 125kW Superchargers work much more rapidly than the existing charging infrastructure.."
Well if a Tesla charges to full in an hour, and a leaf takes 8 to 12 hours then I would say much more rapidly.
Re: "The Peter Jackson films continue to do justice to this awesome source material"
I am so pleased I am not alone in this thought - I actually walked out of the cinema during LOTR and positively refuse to watch the hobbit. The fact that I can read the entire book during the cinema epic and still see the titles speaks volumes. The Lego game however is pure class.
C'mon Dabbsy - you have had a week off.
Having 2 is just greedy, unless you're having a spleenectomy or summink.
Re: interesting variety of discourse????
So what you are saying is it's OK to be an unfunny misogynist as long as no one finds out? Does this translate to any other views? I find it hard to believe that anyone would happily sit themselves in the "I'm not, but" camp.
Granted it's all a bit of a storm in a teacup, but with so many dick heads saying there is nothing wrong with it. Well that just perpetuates the myth that IT is run mainly by men that live with their mum and can't get a girlfriend. Whilst we shouldn't hang him for the stupid slide we shouldn't applaud him either.
Re: The "it's a joke" brigade have missed the point
2 Things, in the old days - blah blah blah - get with the program, we don't live in the old days, and public speaking, by very nature is public. Maybe they should hire private speakers.
It concerns me that my peer group are a bunch of unfunny misogynistic twunts.
*oh calling you all twunts so publicly is actually a joke and you shouldn't be offended.
The "it's a joke" brigade have missed the point
Firstly jokes are meant to be funny or fuelled by sarcasm or irony. This attempt is just shit.
And secondly it's not for the tech community to judge, when this went out into the twatosphere others other than tech heads will of been made aware of it. This makes me, you and loads of other people in IT look like cocks. And whilst that might be true we shouldn't advertise it, unless it's y'know big cocks and that's what the women want, or men, or sheep....
His name is Plucky - although that might be just his call sign.
I believe they ejected his ejector seat to make for a lighter load.
Kill it with fire
Data Directive litigation troll
Is that like a film noir troll?
It wouldn't work in my village - but then again we don't have lamp posts.
Thanks for the bootnote - although cantilevers are pretty cool.
Leaky sandbox - egg timer of doom?
If you let apps out of the sandbox, even innocent apps like swype then how long before you introduce vulnerability?
Get well soon Dabsy.
This particular reprint lacks the frustration and anger of your more recent pieces.
I heard that the Luddite Black Cab drivers are also trying to ban A to Z guides and Google Maps also.
*the one with, oh no hang on, I left it in a taxi, I will never get that back now - TAXI!
Are they hackable?
Who wouldn't want to watch the fun of a hacked noddy car terrorising a truck stop?
Sort of the chocolate factory meets maximum overdrive.
it's scientific research like this that makes creationists seem reasonable.
Can't we all just enjoy/refuse a shag without the labels?
*when I say all I don't actually want to shag any of the commentards, they work in tech and are therefore too slutty.
it's hardly amazing for the price. Think I will stick with the ipad.
The test cars have a plug in steering wheel and controls, apparently they can be removed once the system gets it's town car badge or summink.
In the nicest way possible - I simply don't give a frig.
He could be trained by Ronald McDonald to flip burgers for all I care. Yes, he showed the world the techniques through a prism, but in all honesty as someone else has said. ANYONE could of guessed.
I have just done a speed test on EE's 4G in Ipswich
and to say it's crap is an understatement - currently getting 3 mpbs on the downstream and 2 on the up
I was wondering if it's congestion, so I have carried out a test on 3G - currently getting between 2 and 4 on the downstream and between .5 and 2 on the up.
Voda repel and repulse me, they are the UKIP of phone providers.
Wanting all of the benefit with none of the commitment.
Pay your corporation tax and then we can discuss this more.
I always though the mass transit systems were the sworn enemies of all taxi drivers.
After all it's hard to tell if the driver of a tube or bus is, how to phrase it, a UKIP voter...
Re: They destroyed this kit because.....
That's what they want you to think - it's all part of the conspiracy
They destroyed this kit because.....
It was all NSA standard kit that had been in the Guardians offices since 911 and they have been harvesting and implanting data every since.
How else can you explain all those misspellings in the stories they publish.
No end of Sharepearean sonnets will protect me from eBay’s lead windows or a Ministry of Defence civil servant leaving his laptop in a taxi.
Is that a deliberate error? Or an open source bard?
I am going to wait 3 months before commenting on this, and even then I will let the BBC do the commenting for me.
I am so pleased eBay are on the case, I feel a lot safer knowing this.
What about us plebs? I have a box of throwing eggs and everything!
Re: Branch line woes
Abellio Greater Anglia don't care....I consider you lucky that you get a bus replacement. I have never had one for the Norwich to Ipswich commute.
Some days it would be quicker walking, although hopefully the freight loop that goes live in Ipswich should \ could alleviate some of the delays.
Hopefully this will be used to kick the crappy services into touch. I foresee lots of user generated pretty graphs and tables all showing what we already know. Greater Anglia are the worst company...but you may disagree... in a barrel full of turds it's hard to find the best turd.
"most consumers" are indeed complete idiots, and at least 200 of them work in the same office as me...
I quit with e-Cigs (sorta)
It's been over a year since I bought a packet of tabs or some baccy.....yay go me.
However, I do vape, it's like my pal, he's always with me and I like to suck on him.... OK maybe I should try that again...
I replaced my 20 - 40 a day habit with a PVD and not an e-Cig, I found the ones that look like a cigarette a bit pointless. So I invested in a normal looking refillable vape pipe. The thing is I din't stop there, mainly because of the modding community. So now I vape what can only be described as a hybrid mix of sonic screwdriver and wizard wand. It looks more star trek than cigarette. And I didn't stop there, I also mix my own juices using confectionery flavours and have saved about £50 by buying my PG and VG from a chemical factory that produces food grade additives. So what I hear you say, and I totally agree with you, so what indeed. The thing is I understand the the need for regulation, as the flavours are all food grade, you have to be careful what you out into your body. And I have actually quit smoking? No and Yes....I inhale my nicotine in a whisp of vapor rather than breathe in a toxic soup. The only smoke I inhale is a particular plant matter, and I do that through - yep you guessed it, a dry herb vaporiser that fits a few of my wizard wands.
is it just me...
But this smells of copyright infringement....times 2
the colours look sort of iPhone 5C territory
the capacitive back home and search buttons look a bit Androidy
Is anything original these days?
Re: Science education...
Can we get this straight, please?
Homeopathy lacks biological plausibility and the axioms of homeopathy have been refuted for some time.
When you send an iMessage it is sent encrypted, it's not Apple's fault that this lusers Samsung cannot decrypt it.....

Journey through life
With a plastic boy
Or Girl by your side
Let your pal be your guide
And when it breaks down
Or starts to annoy
Or grinds when it moves
And gives you no joy
Cos it's eaten your hat
Or had sex with your cat
Bled oil on your floor
Or ripped off your door
You get to the point
You can't stand any more
Bring it to us, we won't give a fig
We'll tell you, 'Go stick your head in a pig'.
It's a difficult one, but I found doing the contractor rounds very good for building my reputation. What's that company X, can I sort out your Citrix gateway?......Yeah of course I can.....and hope for the best.
Because of this foolhardy way I have applied myself I have found that I often get (got) contracts that were a bit above my mixed skill set. Although I have for the past two years started a full time in-house role. I don't get as much cash, but at least I know I can feed my family and stuff. I guess it's about money, and how much you want.
Can you hear that?
It's the sounds of a popcorn company going bust...
Re: The ugliest looking thing since........
hey! I drive a froggy and she's lovely...this on the other hand needs killing with fire.
