Re: Well Done.
You mean, Now what to do till beer time....
Re: even more exclusion?
Trying to figure out if that's a big or little deal...??
Speaking of remembering
Who recalls LCS and how it was made?
How about the earlier 7080 and 7090 systems that could be programmed from the console?
The valves in the 083....where were they located?
You could actually read the data from a 7 track tape directly off tape with a viewer.
Card register anyone?

I miss the sweet Moderatrix.
Re: Bit of a change
Wonder why they've changed their minds now
You can't change what you don't have....
doom and gloom
It's really very simple. You have to panic. You have to reach into your pocket and pull out all your spare change to fix things for the poorest people in the world who can't support themselves now and will find it more difficult in the boiling future. By the way, these are still the portions who reproduce at unsustainable levels and will find themselved migrating to their new EU homes (much like large portions of Mexico and central America have migrated to the US). Your resources will be stretched even thinner as extreme numbers of poor flood into your country (never mind actual water floods; those you can deal with...what do you do with the millions who will arrive at your door?)...
I'm eternally thankful
I have no frikkin' idea whose oscar selfie you're talking about. Guess that what i get for living in a cave and not using tweeter-dee. Now get off my lawn.
There's only one way this works
And that's if they keep NO information. So, NO, they're lying through their teeth.
Re: Cameras to the rescue
Oh, you didn't want to see that part of me?
count on their fingers
save a bit of leccy
And turn off the elevator whilst the boss and the architect are in the basement where no one can hear you scream...
Re: Kids today don't know they're born.
and told them to get off the lawn....
"The 20p and 50p have constant diameter no matter where you measure them"
You mean they're spherical?
Is that a selfie taken during bestiality?
Re: Nothing to fear, it's been happening since we started howling at each other from the tree tops
But what word do I turn to....?
Try whichever wanker is current PM.
RIP Firefox Metro
Too bad you succumbed to the rot known as Metro.
We hardly knew ye.
p.s. my multiple email accounts in Thunderbird work just fine.
but side-cutters are STILL pliers
Side-cutting pliers, but still pliers.
Not much different from long-nose or needle-nose pliers; with or without cutter.
Slip-joint pliers, locking pliers, lineman pliers, fence pliers, they're all good.
Re: football pitch sizes
What, you can't handle real footie?
Re: Striving to persevere to endure the never-ending ...
make Julian Assange look like a people person.
Ah ha ha ha ha....He is; but only if you're a female of the species.
What quality will it be?
And will they REALLY have the entire back catalog? I somehow doubt that.
they still won't pay
At least not at home. They'll happily pay less for incompetance from SE Asia.
Whick only goes to prove
You actually CAN polish a turd.
lean forward in a unnatural and uncomfortable position
I think that's called "bending over"....
Some things can't be unseen
Just remember that when someone offers nudie videos of your friends.
Well, at least we know it will never be misused
what could possibly go wrong?
No Maplins around here
At least not on this side of the pond. Nor the other establishments mentioned at all. I have to get my fix at the hardware store and the resellers of used tat where i can find not only the hardware, but the tools to take it all apart; er, I mean, fix things. Yeah, that's it.
All your base are belong to us.
Re: Do as I say, not as I do...
No, no, no. You don't understand the reality. the arms are not made with conflict minerals, conflict diamonds, or anything like that. the arms are there to allow the native africans to kill each other off so there isn't a flood of people left to flee into europe to get away from their situation at home. If you're going to arm some; then arm all so at least it's equal murder all the way around.
feed and clothe people in need
WTF? When did this get to be the job of the government? I can understand about the basic infrastructure, but feed and clothe?
If you want to feed and clothe, then change the tax law to do two things:
(1) punish the hell out of companies that offshore jobs
(2) benefit those companies that create more on-shore jobs at liveable wages.
Re: Not overclocked
How can you overclock a controller you under-clocked in the first place to flog your other stuff to the public?
and yet XP still has north of 29% of the PC market
And the software they are giving away to move files is crap/old version. All it does is move files. You will still have to re-install all your applications and a Win7 license and disc (should you be able to find one) will set you back a pretty pence. With no real upgrade path from XP to Win7 and most folks not wanting anything that looks like win8 except on a fondleslab, MS has screwed the pooch; and waiting for a new opportunity to screw their user base. How many years have they had to come out with a smooth migration tool? how many? yeah, still don't have one. fuskers.
Re: Seriously now....
If not now, very soon....
Re: has an upside
Feature? I think you meant Failure.
It's what's for dinner.
And lunch, and breakfast, and snacks, and....
I am not a number
I'll just get me coat before that bubbly thing gets me...
IIRC, Verizon declined to fibre up a few of the NE US cities because the corrupt local governments were demanding multiple local tv stations to be set up for the cities to use (free) and for Verizon to pay for.... More political gimme, gimme, gimme....and they just said NO.
still want my memory cube
something for the long term.
Separate all network providers from media providers... Verizon, Comcast, TW, ATT, etc will have no reason to throttle network speeds since they will only be pipes or media providers, but not both.
capture and record their knowledge
(1) not that easy
(2) as soon as some mucky-muck thinks they have it, i'll be booted and some minioni off-shore will get my job at a tithe.
(3) you're not going to distill 40 years experience into a training manual for some newbie. I've probably forgotten more than most will ever learn
PL/1, Cobol, Unisys assembler, Mapper 4GL ECL, JCL - - - don't do any of that stuff any more
Sad to hear. RIP and condolences to his family.

They're good old legumes. Beans; you know, your magical fruit.

Oh, Hell NO!

Re: To use or not to use computers, that is the question
Yes, but it will be a 1932 Travesty; replete with suicide doors, a small V8, a three speed shifter, manual steering and manual braking; and weigh at least 2 tonnes.
there's only one thing Opera pulls now
Yes, she'll show you how.
I stopped using the new one...what's the point of it?
a handful of cobalt bits
And a leccy drill and you're in the safe in no time. Permission granted.
Re: Yay - but if it's coming from orbit
Who's going to ride it down?
millions die on a monthly basis and threat of GMO's
Hyperbole and uneducated rant will not convince others of your point.
@Wanderingone56ish - they just want a further deepening of their reach into your pockets for the purpose of moving third world nations up to first world status; feeding and clothing them so they breed like rabbits and don't (magically) contribute anything to the problem....
to the numpties
A 15% flat tax is regressive. If you don't understand that i recommend you do some reading. It's great for the 1% and not so great for everyone else and really sucks for the bottom of the rung who are struggling on a day to day basis.
Social security (in the US) was NEVER intended to be a retirement income. It was clearly earmarked as a SUPPLEMENT to your retirement income. After it was pillaged by congress, opened up to folks who never contributed a dime, added in more who didn't contribute (disabled children??? WTF).... there isn't enough to go around... what a surprise.
Well, when the murder gets committed, and your footprints (among others) get you fitted up to a long stretch in chokey, come back and tell us how random information selection isn't anything to worry about.
And there are plenty of idiots there; all the way up to the top.
