Re: where's the article?

Do you mind letting us know the make/model and mobile OS running on your phone? Here's a direct link to the podcast, though you should be able to click on it in the story. http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/3/2/f/32fdf2db1e219a9b/SiT223.mp3?c_id=12432262

Re: Will "delete account" delete all my posts?

Hi Larry. Jude here from The Register. The usual procedure is that your public posts will appear under the anonymous icon and username after you leave us. If you're sure you wish to delete your posts, you can delete them yourself, but you'll have to do this prior to deleting your account. There is nowhere like Reg forums though, Larry. Think about that.

Re: WOW

We know that there are people posting anonymously here who only post on stories about a specific vendor, and only post on them to trash the competitor. Bad form.

ANOTHER red-ink-spattered quarter for Overland Storage

JudeKay
(Written by Reg staff)

A "fiscal" year does not necessarily correspond with the calendar year. It is just an accounting period. Overland's financial year runs from July 1 to June 30. Its fiscal 2014 ended on June 30, 2014... Its Q1 2015, then, was over before actual "calendar 2015" even began.

Re: Happy new year...

Happy new year, dear reader. The thing I like most about this kind wish is that it was posted anonymously, as if you were ashamed to be caught out being earnest and sincere. Long live our snarky commentards and I raise my coffee mug to you in particular, anonymous. May no one's keyboards be safe in 2015.

Re: Read your own paper...

That is correct. If you read the article carefully, I believe you'll find our blogger wrote that it "came out of stealth" one year after its inception, which is true. And, yes, the startup itself is two years old.

Don't look at us – it was a direct quote from ESA/Philae project manager Stephan Ulemac! I suspect he was attempting to simplify for the layperson.

Microsoft's Lumia 930... a real HANDFUL

JudeKay
(Written by Reg staff)

Re: Re: What, no whiny "Pity it runs Windows" comments?

Yes anon,

We were just being a "paid-off" shills when we rejected 1) a comment accusing a company of legally actionable wrongdoing for which you provided no evidence 2) a comment calling someone a "pathetic pleb" and 3) random abuse hurled at people who disagree with you.

For heaven's sake, just say that you don't like the Lumia 930 and say why. I'll help you: it still doesn't have a heck of a lot of apps...

Love,

Your friendly El <del>Mod</del> Shill

Think wearables are the next tech boom? Cisco's numbers beg to differ

JudeKay
(Written by Reg staff)

Re: Footnote.

OK, it's a little obscure, but the phrase "lavishly tooled in naff brown plastic" refers to the musings of Adams in his '80s detective/fantasy novel The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. He posits that Norse deity Thor, were he to materialise in the present day sans birth certificate, could not become a fully functioning member of modern society (but concludes that perhaps this is no tragedy).

D.A. writes: "If, to sustain for a moment the same arbitrary hypothesis, the God Thor were alive and for some reason at large in England, then he would probably be the only person in the country who did not receive the constant barrage of invitations to apply for an American Express card, crude threats by the same post to take their American Express cards away, and gift catalogues full of sumptuously unpleasant things, lavishly tooled in naff brown plastic."

Thor actually features quite heavily in the book... It's probably sacrilege to say so here, but I prefer the Gently series to HHGTTG.

If there were an English town called By Af Prutter you'd find that amusing, not so? I agree with you about Middlesex too... I should probably grow up, but IMHO sex is funny, and so are farts.
