so MS is giving up all its H1B visa requests
Didn't think so.
But, if you're not in the US
You will get a very kind ODFO.
Don't need sharks with tornados
Still waiting for my sharks with frikkin' lasers.
Was that pre-legal or post-legal? Erm, not that i know anything about any of that; or who she is; or what she does; or anything at all... yeah, that's it...I didn't really post here today.
The MTBF figure is two million hours
TL; DR seagate? yeah, sure.
there's always nature's pocket
if you have to ask...
My TV is talking to me
No, wait; it's the fridge. I can easily imagine how the wacko anti-cell-tower folks are going to flip over having "stuff" in their own house sending secret messages into the aether.
Condolences to friends and family. You really were one of the good guys.
Re: " FINGERPRINTS"
I can get 'Nectar Points'? Which finger do you want? What?, not that one!
So, does anyone have reliability stats on these HGST units?
well done Dabbs.
Have another one

Timur's mountains of skulls were greatly exaggerated for effect.

Re: Sucks more
Maybe not your shoes, but if it can climb doors with the tracks, it can polish your knob.
Still available from many artisans. Still as amazing as ever. Beautiful things brought to you by chemistry.
what idiot uses 1 2 3 4 5 for a password
well, there must be a few
won't want it; don't need it
Said it before, so i'll bore you with it again. There's virtually nothing in my house (except my computer) that i want talking to anything; anywhere; period. And i'm not always sure about the computer. 'nuff said.
Re: Polaroids FTW
"sending said filth"
Seriously? Nudity equates with filth now? What bizarro world do you inhabit?
Re: What's a jlaw?
I keep reading that as "what's a jackdaw?"
Re: Lesbianism vs. beastiality
Thanks. I'm off my tea now.
She'll put you in hot water every time.
get back “within a week”.
In other words, go F yourself for a week and we MIGHT get back to you.
I think i see the problem here..
have had too many seagate problems
Have to admit that WD have not aways been stellar. Red, Blue, Green; what does it all mean. The best were the Blacks which i got and so far, no complaints. Wish i could say the same for other companies, though i did like the old IBM drives.
"blighting the telco"
Dear el Reg,
Please stop referring to the cable companies in the US as "telco". They are not. They may be ISPs; but beside that are primarily cable (TV) providers and their "telephony" services do not approach those of the traditional telephone providers.
"dodgy wiring in the Chinese-manufactured"
redundant statement is redundant.
You will be assimilated.
BORG for the win.
"major US telco"
TWC is not so much a "major US telco" as a large ISP and cable TV provider. Any "telco" services they supply are minor and not subject to normal telco regulation.
new Week End Environment
this will only screw over OTA viewers
People who are OTA viewers will not find their stations where they expect them to be; and in fact may lost some of them in crowded markets due to frequency issues. The current digital is no blessing, as the weaker signal means users (like myself) lose the ability to view what used to come through plainly. I say if you're going to force them to digital, bump up the power again so that the signal gets further than 10 feet.
Just don't hit a skunk
You don't be happy...the skunk won't be happy...and anyone coming down the road for the next week won't be happy.
Re: The search engion is Bing
Cleanup on my monitor please.
"deter light-fingered staff"
You have a key for this thing?
Good on her!
Pleased to see a woman (finally) get selected for this prize. Hopefully it will encourage more women and young ladies to get seriously into math and make it theirs.
Give Scotland to the US
But you'll have to take California and Texas.
Re: Nothing is too extreme for this OZ government
OH, you said scary. I read it as scaly.
the best hasn't even been mentioned
Your shiney new fridge has just slurped up all your internet bandwidth for the month...sorry, you are getting slowed down to a lower tier and charged extra since your toaster wants to play on the interwebs, too.
I can't think of a single appliance or device in my house that i want connected to any other device and especially NOT to the interwebs where the data is available to a "select few" or to some derp hacker down the street from me.
I barely let my computer talk to the internet; and there are days i wonder about that.
AKA bog roll.
the incendiary device should have been pressure triggered by someone sitting on the boss's chair.

Pictures, or it never happened.
Re: Java Exploit in Callous Cat Does Not Care" website
Strange, that link doesn't work.
standard polygraph tests
I thought these were pretty much proved to be hokum a long time ago. You mean some poor mis-guided soul still uses them? Shame.
not liking the "prettiness"
Didn't like it in FF; and like it less in TBird. Been using TBird for my email client for three different networks now, for quite a while. The new "pretty" one seems to have lost it's mind in how it uses my address book and is suddenly pulling up wrong addresses for folks i regularly write. Please just stop.
Re: One idea...
I have found several tools (at eye-watering prices) on UK web sites and even if willing to purchase (I was); they weren't willing to ship. Even common, every-day hand tools that should be more reasonably priced are not.
Somebody tell me what's up with that? It can't be exchange rates. Is it just gouging in a controlled or smaller market?
Slavery is not gone
it's rampant in Africa, Arabian peninsula, and much of SE Asia. Most of the slave trade in the former colonies was "fed" by one tribe selling off another in Africa. pretty much how they still do it.
Europeans have no guns
Well, I don't know about that. All the US films i see that have been filmed in EU, everyone and their mother has a gun.
they find a shrunken dried hand with one finger raised
Well, he hasn't changed one little bit now, has he?
Of a movie i just watched.
