It's slow. So slow. The interface is awkward and difficult to navigate. It looks like someone has decided to use pretty much every single transition known to JQuery to display, move or hide elements (and there's no way to turn it off.). It looks like one of those Web 2.0 websites where every flashy new technology has been used just for the sake of it.
There's no verification of users. Yes, you can create an account with bogus credentials and then upload anything you like. The entire site is full of schoolboy errors like this. I don't know about you, but for £200K I expected more.
No one likes Comic Sans.
Can be taken as the gospel truth.
Probably one of the few communication methods left that aren't under constant surveillance by the NSA.
AFAIK, and IANAL: There is precedent set for using the function of a system, even though such a function may not be intended behaviour. (Old Bailey trial 3 Oct. 1973)
However, taking the information gained and using that to circumvent a security measure would be contravening the act.
Disclaimer: The above is pure speculation. Again, IANAL.
That's even worse!
Rupert Murdoch thinks he's relevant and has something to contribute. Yet the man continually demonstrates his ignorance every time he utters his opinion.
Two MPs enter!
One MP leaves!
How about trial by jury for MPs?

I too was wondering if there was any swelling.
But he's just gone an squandered a ton of public money, so he's got to say something.
Has El Reg journalism sinking to the lowest common denominator?
Can you replace facts with wild speculation if you phrase it in the form of a question?
And immediately started updating my CV
Bacon and tomato sauce surely!
All Qwerty keyboards are practically the same. Mostly from the necessity of having all the keys in a place where a touch typists fingers know where to find them.
Machines may be better placed to discover chunks of data that the scientists weren't expecting or even looking for.
Then how am I supposed to check to see if any of my websites are on it?
Great idea :) That should solve the problem once and for all!
Upvote for the Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines reference. :)
Why wasn't this the subheading?
Someone's developing an AI that drinks coffee and post comments on El Reg all day instead of writing code?
Who would do something like that?
It's only a matter of time...
It's just easier to download shows off the internet and watch them at your convenience. Or indeed, in your convenience.
...ok ok! I'm going!
District Judge Richard Seeborg might want to rethink that decision!
I wouldn't put it past him though. I'm going to start checking app permissions a little bit more carefully now.
You're breaking my heart.
I totally agree. HAL wasn't evil, just misguided.
It'll do no good for Albert Ransom, but I do take a little bit of delight in seeing someone get their comeuppance.
But you still needed a separate boot disk if you wanted to play video games. Unless you were some kind of batch file wizard.
Margaret Hodge is a little late to the party isn't she? Or is passing bad laws only something she takes an interest in when it directly embarrasses her?
Let me fire up a 56K modem, connect to Compuserve, and download a movie that will crap out at 76%.
That takes me back!

Try a single blade Bic. I find that the multi-blade razors tend to accumulate hair between the blades, reducing efficiency. Which probably explains why they work better when you rub it backwards down your leg.
Ronald Hall owes me a new keyboard.
I like Google Glass as much as the next bloke. It's a great way of accessing small amounts of data in an unobtrusive manner.
BUT! If Larry Page came into my bathroom and started filming me in the shower and tweeting the video all over facebook, I'd say "OI! PAGE! NO!" Being the CEO of a multi-million dollar company does not give you the right to come into my bathroom and start filming me in the shower!
(apologies to Harry Enfield.)
I've still not forgiven them for ruining Dungeon Keeper.
That monkey could have racked up 1,000's of dollars worth of purchases on Candy Crush!
...Into the Sun.
How else am I supposed to use South Park clips to educate people?
I too was wondering what GitHub's patrons have against tasty pork dishes in gravy.
