Is the "au-pair year" the new unit of currency?
What about ionising radiation? You sent Rui out there, to the wall, without an ionising radiation detector, or appropriate protection?
You, sir, are a nasty piece of work.
Oh, and what about knee protectors?
What is this "object oriented" coffee of which you speak?
Good programming certainly does involves coffee, with a few side orders of pizza (or curry, or horse, according to taste). And from time to time, also pointers, heap allocations, structs, and other maniacal constructs. But I am at a complete loss as to where the orientation of objects comes into this. Is this "Java" business all about homogenous objects? Or is there general acceptance of heterogenous objects? What about happy objects? Or those objects that are really unusual, or a bit queer?
I'm confused and I think I shall go back to assembler in a dark room.
This code should be engraved on a plaque on the next interstellar probe that mankind sends off to explore the universe. Any aliens seeing it will discover that we were not afraid to wrangle pointers and all that that entails so far back in our history. We will be recognised as the gnarly dudes we surely are.
Nasty, very very nasty
Those French and German silent calls are so nasty.
I received a silent call a while ago and still recall that moment when I chillingly realised there was a mute mainland European on the other end. There was a harrowing Franco-Germanic malevolence in the utter silence.
It was weeks before I could suffer a moment of sobriety after that.
'82 was a good year
As were the years before, and the years after. With the passage of time, the quality, functionality, and usability only gets better.
You wrote "off of"
Please don't use that sequence of words. It is not a good sequence and the remedial eye bleach hurts. Think of the children, the badgers, and all others who read English.
Maybe it's just a virus.
When it can take "Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There's a frood who really knows where his towel is." and bounce it to Chinese and back without losing the subtleties of the original prose, I'll be impressed.
Until then, I'm hanging on to my towel.
Re: The wife's primary pistol of choice ...
My ex's weapon of choice was her gob. I don't know what calibre it was, but I'm damn sure there wasn't a silencer for it.
The Ascent of Man
Surely there is a sequence to be observed:
1. a box containing miscellaneous computer stuff;
2. many boxes, one of which contains miscellaneous computer cables;
3. many boxes, one of which contains ethernet cables;
4. many boxes, one of which contains CAT6 ethernet cables;
5. many boxes, one of which contains 1-3m CAT6 ethernet cables;
6. many boxes, one of which contains red 1-3m CAT6 ethernet cables.
Once there, you only have to worry about the number of O'Reilly technical reference books you have.
Re: durham had one too
Perhaps seagull is too much like cormorant. Google "how to cook a cormorant"...
Re: Why blue LEDs?
But these enclosures will never be seen in a server room. Similarly the hugely loud fans found in equipment in server rooms would never be tolerated in a home/office environment.
Blue LEDs are seriously irritating for people with gradually worsening short sight: blue is the first colour to lose focus. And besides that, the light emitted is horribly intense.
Blue LEDs: not even once.
So what useful things can this new telephone do that my 9 year old Sendo S330i can't? I would find it difficult to live with a phone that needs charging more than once every couple of weeks. I can make and receive calls, and even send and receive short messages comprised of characters from a limited set.
Wake me up when they include an Orgasmatron.
Re: Missed the best
Agreed, the 83i is great - the best radio I have used. UI is great, sound is great, the range of sources is great. Replaced a Pure Evoke 3 that crashed and corrupted its firmware too many times.
The only issue I have is how chuffing bright the blue display and power button are.
Depending on the ratio of black hats to white hats, you'd get varying shades of grey. Possibly as many as fifty. Really might make a good film, if you like that sort of thing.
Re: In his defence...
There's an app for that: iPeeFreely.
The three worst films must surely be Event Horizon, The Tree of Life, and Catch 22. Utter tripe. I could have watched some pretty exciting paint dry for the long hours those bogies on the hanky of mankind took to watch.
This should be conducive to getting some bright spark to conduct conductor theft investigations.
You mean it isn't hiding behind the hot water pipes, third washroom along, Victoria station?
