"'ere, some C*nt keeps prank calling me"
Re: Or they could consider joining the first part of the 21st century...
most of the transactions were under £10 and the effective commission rate was 30%???
Not these days, a terminal that plugs into your iPhone costs £60 and only charges 2.7% for any transaction.
Not one mention of.....
2. girls in inappropriate dress
3. occasional jaunts to very scary chemical plants
4. free coffee
Therefore, with regret I cannot join as your subby - also I have very little experience.
Re: Suspect Much ?
helicopter what? You can't see it? And you never will, until it's too late
I'm thinking it's either Scuzzlebutt or Manbearpig
I hear that Nasa is suing Apple - because ISS sounds a bit like iOS
@ John Smith 19
Oh......nope, still nothing.
Never heard of her, even after a google I am none the wiser.
Maybe she could use hard earned tax payers money to raise her profile.
And here was me thinking this had the smell of public relations and marketing. - My mistake.
Re: Mathematician vs. a "Real" Scientist...
I thought that meteorologists were just physicists with umbrellas, and pure mathematicians were just physicists in sandals.
University Help desk
user - my email won't work
me - yes, it's become compromised and is sending out spam
user - I didn't do it.
me - have you answered any of these (phishing) emails
user - Yes, was that wrong?
me - blah blah phishing, blah blah security, blah blah why it's dumb, trust no one etc
user - OK got it, I was dumb
me - so to get your email working I just need your credit card number and security code.
user - sure 4566 7899 9988 9287 - and security 674
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.
