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.
ooohhh arrrrr oooohhh arrrr aaaay - shurely?
What bugs me
Where will this erosion of history finish?
You can't just go around deleting history, now if it turns out that the search result in any way is false then fair enough. Surely we have to be a bit responsible for our actions.
Is the idiot driver that killed my brother-in-law going to ask for that court filing to be removed, because Nigel is dead and it was a few years ago? Why should it be removed?
Should that picture of me with the two strippers and the big bag of surf be expunged because I want to work in finance?
It's not up to the EU to make the rules, and what about all the other search engines? Won't this stop development of other browsers because it's suddenly got more expensive? And then what about data that isn't stored in the EU but involves an EU citizen?
Clearly it's not workable, and clearly this stupid decision needs challenging.
You think he's fat? You should see what Bay has done to Mecha-Godzilla....
Re: It's just a fecking computer game folks!
All computer games now need to be rainbow flavoured...
Splinter Cell shall now be sphincter cell...
Doom will be re-branded with rainbows and be called Happy
And Microsoft Train Simulator will now have tighter tunnels....
Yes, I am been a bit sarcastic, but that's because it's just a friggin game.....
*I am more concerned with pokemon, but you don't see the ALF protesting!
**An El Reg, we need a sarcasm icon please!
When the chips are down
You have about 30 seconds to get out of the area whilst the droid reboots.
Hahahahahahaha you now owe Amazon a quid ------------------>
@ Andy Prough
A) same as everyone.
B) same as everyone.
C) I usually spot sony, and now windows and their stupid surface devices, hardly ever apple.
D) same as everyone
E) That's not actually true, but just like everyone they pay very little.
F) Use green and conflict free materials, leading the way with investment and hopefully turning around the manufacturing companies to a better more sustainable way.
Sorry, have I left anything out?
I think there is a difference between a family entertainment console and a games console.
Nintendo's problem is mainly the press. If you get several sites slagging it off because they are basing the experience on the xbox or ps then it's hardly surprising. I guess they are too honourable as a company to grease the palms of the reviewers.
I realise that makes me sound cynical, but it's the truth.
Re: How can it be banned .......
It's a bit like some corporate firewalls that I have worked on.
If it's black listed then you can't access it, and you can only access things that are on the white list.
if it isn't on either list then you still can't access it and have to ask the nice firewall people if you can access it.
He's quite weird isn't he?
No wonder he's part of SPB
*obvs this is a joke, I would never, NEVER, disrespect anyone in SPB. They can build drones and stuff.
They have 6 weeks and 1 day.......
.....to sort out that sh1t
or I'm.......actually I want to visit the states, so I had better not finish that sentence

So where do you buy your sex toys?
And why are you buying so many?

**and so do tesco too
Please can we have more notice?
As I would happily take part...
I didn't understand what Bing was
I had to google it.....
Re: What Symantec did AV?
have an upvote +1
If I had a pound for every time I had to kill a symantec process then I would have a lot of cake.
Also I would still have my small business and possibly a better car.
It was deliberate
El Reg doesn't want to work for the secret squirrels.....
*at least that's what they want you to think!
Re: Bing Bong
I'm pretty sure my 5s carries out all it's browser searches using Google.
Not sure about Siri, it's ghastly
F' 'em Dabbsy
I don't work for free, I would even charge my Mum for IT assistance.....granted it's usually a cup of coffee and a nice crisp tenner.
Re: You will need
no, I am pretty sure those magic headphones that he describes are called bluetooth
I think his defence is valid....
I have built a massive gun that can fire projectiles, it runs on rails and for protection I have 3 houses that will happily absorb laser blasts from nefarious aliens.
Re: I'm no Murdoch fan but...
Agreed - Sky has just totally overhauled the EPG and front screen - the whole shebang...not a single bit out of place.
Heck, hiding behind DP annoys me somewhat.
I'm glad I am not a TV customer, and only receive my slightly shoddy broadband from them.
Shit the bed!
That sounds particularly nasty......
It's not going to stop me moaning about the hayfever I am currently battling, but it will get me chucking another quid or two in the hat.
On my way to work today I had to point out that the light had turned green, but the women on her phone didn't seem to notice, and then she acted all butt hurt when I yelled get off the phone!
*I was a smug pedestrian at this point in my journey.
Is it foraging still if......
you re-purpose little salts and peppers in there sachets from popular fast food places?
whilst foraging for salt and pepper you eat fries from the floor?
Re: fecking labels that you are meant to remove
Top Tip - mayonnaise......yes the white slippery stuff
Coat the sticker in large blobs of the stuff and leave for a couple of days - et voilà...
Fry me a river
those eggs look near damn perfect!
Re: @ daniel
Dude - this isn't XDA, maybe they will help you with your projects of awesome androidness.
Now bog off!
Re: @ daniel
I only come on here to ready the daily mail readers comments....
Seriously dude, all that anger isn't worth it. And as for your droid tablet....That's not going to cure world hunger is it? But pie on the other hand....What, oh Pi....nope that won't either. And Resistive? Seriously dude! shaking my head....
Now pass me the popcorn - its the food of trolls y'know
you didn't upgrade to a 5S - who feels stupid now? Maybe you would like to phone me and complain.....Best of luck waking your phone up loser
*the one with the 5S in the pocket....
A meagre amount added in the jar from me - now dance monkeys dance!
You see, that's what I like about El Reg - it may be an embittered meany at times, but Lester's comment shows that underneath the vultures feathers beats a heart of fluffy loveliness.
Maybe I am the only one......but
Other companies had a chance to bid.
Other companies decided not to.
BT became pretty much sole supplier.
Therefore it must be BT's fault.
Hmm - dammed if they do, dammed if they don't.
Grand Theft Tesco
mirrors the endless discussion of Max Clifford's penis
I salute you, I raise a glass to you, and I will even buy you a pint.
I don't know if it adds to the story, but every time I see that man I laugh and laugh and laugh
Re: We want Manga.
If they go down that route, then what is to stop the Cronos corporation starts pumping out hyper-zoanoids?
Pen and paper - word processing for blondes
Seems to me that Three are just doing some willy waving for free headlines....oh look it has worked.
is presumably what the male chickenosaurus is called.
There is this thing right that most call the internet but the part we use is called the world wide web. Its incredibly useful as its full of all kinds of stuff and things. Lets call some of the stuff and things information. Are you following me so far Shades?
Good, now one of the useful things about this is the ability to search for facts. And one of these facts that you can search is how Nintendo feel about some of the similarity of the flappy birds backgrounds.
Thank you xx
is it criminal watching criminals?
The business owner confirmed that he had found the tapes in the basement of the old police station, after purchasing the site two months before, and was planning on watching them for entertainment.
I'm all warm and fuzzy
Thanks El Reg, antique code show always makes me feel all chipper and squidgy inside.
That won't cut the mustard I'm afraid. once the OS is loaded on you won't have much wiggle room for apps.
Regarding shock invective beginning with "cu-"
Ok I was curious, and now one of them CU types wants to expel me from the building. Of well, the pubs open so I might as well get cu*ted.
I find that nappies
