My final offer
Evil deeds are afoot
Take quinine to kill Malaria parasites? Nice little sentientywenty things. How about a sweet little rat infestation in her basement? Ask them nicely to leave?
Footage: No, it's a MOOOOOVIE
Or it didn't happen
Its has to be good for SOMETHING. thais may be it
Then no sale. I normally dump my stuff and walk out.
Does it play moovies and moosic?
OK, looks like we have the founding members of the "I Don't Give a Rats Arse About Faecebook or Twatter" club.
with the Dildo Dynamo(tm) and the Arsehole Alternator(tm)
Actually, "Arsehole Alternator" sounds exactly like someone I worked for a while back.
Never seen a cow with automatic brakes. Dunno how that would work.
Obviously a graduate from the BOFH school of how to deal with Volvo salesmen
Seriously, I thought everyone realised tablets were shiny toys for the burbles who liked to feel important and oh so digitized, whilst the rest of us get on doing work. A laptop is just about OK, I suppose, if you are a road warior but for getting real work done nothing, but nothing beats at least 2 decent monitors and either a desktop dock or simply a desktop computer. The only decent use I have ever seen for an iPad is as a glorified remote control for the burbles video conferencing suite. And they can keep that.
Its obviously the work of a Consultant in the Use of New Technology
I just found my old library ticket. Been buried in books ever since. Its great. Anyone want an old TV (Without poo tube)?
*TAS = Thick As Shit
@ gazthejourno: In some ways that's even worse
Have a pint o fthe very best on me sir!
Your fault, not $ony's
Like Web 2.0 rhea, but worse.
Not enough sand
They don't have 'em
Forget the toad. Lick my Marmite!
That could be a ephemism. It just depends on your stance about being 20 something, gorgeous and with a penchant for filthy old men.
Never claimed it was incorrect or in appropriate. Just pretentious.
Do keep up.
Being in the dictionary doesn't make it sound any less pretentious.
"leveraging"? Don't you mean "using"
I won't say "pretentious twat"
But I'll think it bloody loudly
AND a frikkin' LASER!
"SECRETS of the LOST SCROLLS unlocked by BREAST SCAN tech" - Titter ye not!
Only because of the bloody ribbon toolbar!
Yeah, just yell "Enhance!" at it
And home of the vested interest.
What? Like Google?
What the hell have Syria or the Ukraine done to you for you to suggest that?
But I''ll have to say "bottom" instead.
If I recall correctly, I believe that was Way Station, a 1963 science fiction novel by Clifford D. Simak, originally published as Here Gather the Stars
And the ability to turn off stupid animations
No dumb kindergarten crayon level "friendly" graphics
And NO FUCKING METRO TILES
I could live without changing the default Explorer directory - I assume .lnk is still possible
At least some stuff seems to be arriving/leadving Luton:
Interestingly NATS says:
NATS can confirm that a technical problem has been reported at Swanwick air traffic control centre.
UK airspace has not been closed, but airspace capacity has been restricted in order to manage the situation. We apologise for any delays and our incident response team has been mobilised.
Every possible action is being taken to assist in resolving the situation and to confirm the details.
Further information will be released as it becomes available.
Yes. post it back. And, as a small token of the esteem in which you hold the sender, enclose some little keepsake. Like a rusty cylinder head. Or the veg peelings.
@ solo. No, it's not "just the snooping habits" that I object to. A large chunk of my ire is directed at the balal ads, the intrusive and downright rude animated ads (no better than little johnny leaping up and down, yelling, to get noticed and, sadly even served up on El Reg, for shame. ). Its the mindless crap from Amazon (you bought a widget. Here's a targetted ad for another one). Its the lying gits saying things like "you have a new message". Its the special offers that are anything but. Its the popup/over/under ads. Its the relentless celebrity drivel inspired ads.
Attention French Ad pushers (and anyone else embarking on an ad campaign). You don't like people's reaction to the crass, the dumb, the stupid and the rude? Stop doing it. It seems to escape some people's realisation that, if you serve up shit, you get treated like you serve shit. Grow up and start acting like you care instead of going for the lowest common demominator. Simples.
All that is aside from the obvious security weakness of a compromised ad server as has, I understand, been recently slightly in the news.
I do, however, agree with your point that "if ad blockers are adapting "Pay for Play", they are breaching our trust and open source ethics". Quite. With control of what AdBlock allows passing out of our hands, it is in danger of becoming itself just as guilty.
Which I 'll happily provide at consultancy rates. £100 gets answers for up to ten questions. Take it or leave it.
.... You'll have to do a whole lot better, AND the content would have to be inifnitely better than currently available, for me to actually lay down money for a smart tele and switch from my current TAS** TV
**Thick As Shit
Lovely phones. Crap cameras though and the 600 was RAM based, not flash so it would forget if the battery went flat.
My old 650 even survived a sojourn into the bilge of a canal boat. Retrieved it, whipped the battery out, washed off the oily water, dumped it into a cupboard in the engineroom in a food container with some rice and left it there for a week. Still worked OK years down the line.
some kind of filter?
