What about the rest of us?
There are many benefits to shaking over stirring, depending on what you require the outcome of the drink to be. Mixing will combine both flavours into an even blend, this can be done with tea with milk for a different flavour of the same ingredient. And whilst this is subtle to most the difference can be considerable.
Stirring a drink layers the flavours in a different way, this will create noticeable differences between different cocktail makers, depending on how fast it is stirred, how long for and also what angle.
I believe what Mr Bond is in fact doing is burtonising the drink, so that it tastes the same no matter what bar he is frequenting.
I used to android phone and whatever laptop of the moment
But since going fruit I have been amazed at how good there adapters for all there kit is.
It's time for the rest of the techverse to play catch up and adopt
OK - I totally understand the gripes, but lets not forget that you don't pay to use facebook. Do you think that servers and developers are free.
That is my understanding - the clue is in "menacing"
Re: What is the issue?
Am I serious - Jezz assume much do you?
1, I said I have 3 children, I didn't mention the new born.
2, Babies actually learn by sight and sound, I am not suggesting they play angry birds. Last time I looked the iPad has both. As for the chair, the bouncy chair, the bouncy chair with obvious hanging rattle and things. Well I guess you must of missed that.
3, That is entirely your opinion, and you are wrong with your assumption of screen time. For instance, my 3 year old speaks conversational Spanish thanks to Dora and Diego. This was from watching the television. He also speaks a bit of French from an App. Learning isn't just a set of rigid rules. I guess you will learn that when your kids are older and you are in a corner sobbing gently.
4, Seems you are in the wrong industry, this is actually progression. Maybe you're not an early adopter and are still struggling with Windows ME. It's time to understand that perhaps Granny needs to keep up to date, sometimes it's not about what you want, but what the needs of a child wants.
And really, you would destroy the arm that has a mirror on it, just because it also holds an iPad. Who are you, 1950's Dad? Seems that you need to take a long hard look at the world and try to fit in.
What is the issue?
As a father of 3 I can't actually see an issue, both my boys 3 and 5 use my tablet for games.
An iPad is just an interactive device, it's not hooking a child up to crack cocaine.
Yes, some parents may shove them in a chair and leave them, but we are not all idiots. Some of us understand a mixed and varied selection of activities and stuff will stimulate the little sweeties.
And also, what a great way for Granny to learn about FaceTime.
Did anyone at all see this coming?
Oh, what's that.......the entire readership of El Reg!
How many times must the same drivel be peddled by ISP
Personally I am waiting for ronseal to become an ISP, no fuss, no mess, no bother, does exactly what it says on the tin.
Re: My Little Pony...
Sorry to be a pedant - but it was actually in the book, how to be a complete bastard, although it was Adrian Edmonson so i'll give you half an advent chocolate
That's pretty much what I was thinking, there isn't any restriction or tax to pay.
Within a week I quit tobacco altogether, within a month I was mixing my own juice, within 2 month I was modding my kit.
After 4 month I started craving some good old THC, but didn't want to roll, and as it happens I found dry vape chambers. All in all, I vape, and this is a happy smiley thing.
Surely they don't use the internet for spying do they? I thought it was all porn and online shops.
Speaking as a recent apple convert....
This is a sham, Google never copied Apple
Android devices are poop compared to the refined Apple user experience
Yesterday I met the director of the firm I work, and I mentioned that IT can be dangerous work. His words were thus, nice that I have a BOFH on site, just remember that I'm one too.
These are only USA products - what about us lot in blighty
Seems logical, why have a drone to tell you prices and events if your iShiney can do it for you
OK, I want one - this IT lark is just so pedestrian, so I might as well make like one.
I'm a recent Apple convert and can I just say
Mi aerodeslizador es lleno de anguilas
Not Halloween, All Hallows' Eve or bloody trick or treat day!
That's what they want you to think!
*Paris, because that's what she thinks, at least she thinks that what she thinks.
isn't that what yorkshire people drink?
*It's not a coat it's Yorkshire Jacket
Yeah, lets employ criminals to carry out criminal acts in the name of Gov
Maybe knife crime types can become butchers
Muggers can become doormen
etc etc etc.....
It would add fuel to his fire, but it seems that there has been an issue with refuelling. Therefore the plain, the fuel and the fire have all been delayed.
As long as....
They keep the database for themselves and don't sell access to it to anyone. As I wouldn't want the world knowing about my "light bulb" moment.....and I don't mean having an idea!
Why not click on my name and see, rather than guessing you turnip
This is why I am leaving Android
I used to be a committed fandroid, heck I have so many droid devices, but enough is enough.
Simply too many devices, too many flavours of OS.
I don't want to have to hunt and research for the best user experience. I want a device that works, and receives regular updates. That even when the handsets are refreshed the latest software is delivered.
That's right folks, I am buying an Apple, I will be a fanboi....
Dear El Reg
Please don't draw peoples attention to this claw fisted cock juggler.....
*Dear lawyers, you will note that I haven't actually mentioned which one....Oops (that should work)
I haven't had one of these jokers for a while. But I always have fun when they call. Amongst some of my time wasting tricks are.
1. Loading up my riot soundboard, I let them do there "work" until I get bored and simulate either a police raid, or house invasion.
2. From memory I follow there instructions and pretend I am a bumbling oaf....My record is 47mins...
3. I sometimes engage them in chat, and then tell them my life story, about how my wife has just left me. The death of my child. My lust for indian men.....
Am I going to hell?
Kwazi, Peso, Barnacles, Inkling, Dashi, Shellington, Tweak, Tunip!
Octonauts at ease, until the next adventure!
That's like saying I prefer to be kicked in my right testicle instead of my left.
Right, that's it!
I'm changing my profile picture to an arse.....
*some would say I already have
But on the plus side
It's now easier to delete emails from the android app.
Seriously that's all that I do these days. Yahoo is the spamiest mail provider anywhere
Yes, but is it art? Photo
I don't know about art, but those dildo's in the cabinet behind made me laugh.
audio-jack insertion and removal??????
You can patent that?
I'm filing a patent for bum wiping...I will make 7 billions in no time. Andrex, you will bow down to me.
Oh my golly gosh
I've just learned that bears defecate in the woods
The the pope, leader of the catholic church is himself a catholic.
Soon you will be telling me that Julian Assange is weird
Hmmm, I like iOS but I don't like Apple devices
I like Android, but wish it was on a nokia..
Windows on a mobile.....nope
Ahhh the glow of modernity
I remember when you could have a fag on as you pottered around a filth strewn shop. How things have changed. Now we are in the clutches of modernity. But this shouldn't make us complacent, the drones that work there are bad enough. However......the automated tills of which you speak are just windows XP boxes running an ill-fitting touch screen. Although having said this, ED-209 was once a mini cooper....
What I am trying to say, is get used to the robot rebellion..
When I got this job....
I was asked as part of the bullshit interview questions what I'd spend my cash on.
My reply was cake, although the interviewees also said that wild women, ale and porn is acceptable.
Is it going to be shown on ISS? Or the secret moon base for that matter......
@ Stevie, Roo and Bongojoe
Fellow audiophiles I salute you!
Wrong Again Mr Dabbs
The process is simple: want music, get music, put music in magic box, listen. Why mess about with that?
You try getting hold of Radio gnome by gong - oh damn, just googled and it appears quite easy....well it won't have weasel ripped my flesh my Zappa - oh for gods sake, it appears that you can get that too. Seems you can even buy Monolith by Amebix....
So why do I still have my massive LP collection of rare oddities.
Apologies Mr Dabbs.....seems you could be right (let the downvotes begin)
2 Things I love
Technology and Cricket
El Reg - I salute you, not many sites could combine both
They've turned off Balmer
Lets's hope they don't turn him on again
*in honour of the last IT crowd - Ch4 9pm
Like most posters
Tank full of sharks, fricken laser head mounts as standard
And a big fridge - any change to be stored as bullion
I think you will find that it's is God that provides this free community service...
But as the chuch is next to the sub exchange it may also be BT
damn, I am about to defend BT....what has become of me?
I am moving house soon, into the countryside....Lucky me...
And I think it's awesome that they have fibre....I can still stream and chat and all that sort of stuff that modern living has. Safe in the knowledge that the dozen houses and a pub with building restrictions all around me can also enjoy this. Average speed as the exchange is shared by neighbouring villages is around 10MB...but if it becomes congested I can switch to the churches free 2MB wi-fi....
This is all made possible because BT asked some nice farmers if the could dig a small trench...
Video Game Generation
This happens all the time on video games. Maybe we have been desensitised to normal road and traffic conditions. Just the other day I found myself jumping over pipes....etc etc
