Re: rippled rocket exhaust
For her pleasure.
Wait a sec! This isn't the Ann Summers thead!
The guy that replaced Rebekah Brooks after the phone hacking scandal is now in charge of one of the UK's largest phone companies.
Something is raising a red flag here, but I just can't quite put my finger on it...
Damn, I didn't see Miranda Richardson on the list first time around!
How do I change my vote?
The council issued unencrypted laptops to staff when it had problems with its encryption software
Well that was daft.
What the council should have done was train their employees properly. (If they still can't use encryption tools after that, then the council needs to fire their incompetent staff).
It's just encryption, it's not rocket science.
The worst thing about censorship is
T**** ***** *** ****** *** ****!
Re: (Z,X,P,L & SPACEBAR anyone?)
Q, A, O and P surely!
Re: What's stopping me from having half the companies data anyways?
Not much. Apart from your honour as an IT professional.
I have to buy my own kit now?
Pencil, Paper and Slide Rule it is then!
Re: This thread is full of words that look like variable names I've seen.
Yes, absolutely awful code.
Written by a person who's native language was English.
Who's idea of a good variable name involves some of the worst hungarianesque notation (in an ide that will frigging tell you what type and what class a method belongs to) that I've ever seen.
This thread is full of words that look like variable names I've seen.
I maintain some awful code.
Re: Come on 150GB a month - that's a lot of pron :S
Some might argue that is not enough pron!
Your default password will be the ancient dance of my ancestors.
It goes: Aga do do do, push pineapple, shake the tree.
Report from planet Earth suggests planet Earth is important.
I find El Reg to be so humancentric. There are other planets with life out there (possibly,) you know!
Re: brave Playmonaut
Has a Playmonaut been named yet?
Re: a weekend with a porn star and a weekend with David Cameron
What's David Cameron going to be wearing?
(You can thank yourself for that disgusting mental picture you're now viewing.)
Re: How do you know the characteristics are not set?
Because hidden variable theories make predictions that aren't observed in experiments.
Motorola may not have anticipated the reaction of biblical literalists
Or maybe they did anticipate them, and thought, "We don't really care what a load of batshit crazy bible thumpers think", and then got on with the rest of their day.
Has anyone stopped to think of the consequences of this to the IT industry?
We're going to have bleary eyed developers wandering around looking for coffee and snack food. They'll sit about all day at their desks producing quirky random code...
Hang on, are we sure that developers aren't on pot already?
Penis Expert Business Cards
If you rub them they turn into a postcard!
Polishing the fingernail scratches off the window frame
You've got to take care of the evidence.
Or at least make sure that it points in someone else's direction :)
Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.
I think you'd better do what he says.
"You now have 15 seconds to comply."
Re: NASA wont
And probably starting up a ranch of buggalo before we've even got boots on the ground!
Re: As a nation (UK) sex has always been a taboo
I remember seeing more tits in Carry On movies from the 60's than anything else I ever saw on TV.
So we're decided then
The way to stop kids from accessing porn is to burn down all the hedges.
Never in human history have horny little teenagers... etc
No more so than the rest of the population that enjoys porn. If you think that a horny 15 year old doesn't have access to the same material, then you've severely underestimated the biological imperative to seek out sex that appears to exist in all young boys.
Too much time and money invested in worrying about the digital boogeyman
And not enough time spent by parents keeping an eye on their kids.
Re: For every nutter in the UK you get 5 in the US
Yes, but our nutters are British!
Re: Now what is the result if they are just fed ordinary tomatoes.
Are you insinuating that they didn't use a control group?
Re: We should not meddle in things only barely understood...
If I followed that maxim then I'd never get anything done!
Didn't I say the glacier algae would be the first wave?
Maybe when the next zombie apocalypse happens, you'll listen to me sooner!
I've seen a ruggedised mobile phone used to hammer a nail into a wall.
You can get nigh on indestructible phones, but they are bloody expensive.
The Zombie Apocalypse Begins.
I predict that these are the first wave of scouts for a larger zombie army.
Corporate tax is not a moral issue
Oh it so is! Just because it's a corporation and not a person doing it, doesn't absolve the corporation (and the people that make up that corporation) of their moral duty.
Re: Could she be riding on the coat tails
Well she's got no achievements or skills of her own.
Close your mouth Google.
It's going in the other end.
That is an obscene amount of money to spend on a toy
Feed starving children like Bill Gates? No, it's a V2 rocket for me!
We get to watch people die on mars on live TV?
I can't see how this could possibly go wrong.
Sometimes there's just no substitute for percussive teaching methods.
I swear by them!
That's going to be one big keyring.
Real mode could run on anything up to a 286.
Have you actually tried running Windows 3.0 on an 8MHz 8086?
I have, and I can personally tell you that it's no laughing matter.
This is news?
Someone ought to tell Miliband that he missed that bandwagon.
Re: The value of "IP"
It's a german robot. It's not afraid of a little weather.
Re: My manager has an ant colony in her monitor.
Awesome! How much do you have to pay for one of those?
Re: What is wrong with the downvoting turds lately?
I don't think that downvoting Eadon is that effective. I think he collects downvotes and downvoting him is providing him with negative attention. If people stopped reacting to his obvious trolling, then he'd get bored and go away.
Love is not a malfunction!
Why can't they leave software in loving, respectful relationships alone?
Re: Who mentioned Windows?
It's what he does.
Re: Never accuse Murdoch
How has that guy escaped jail for so long?
Re: What happens when Humans no longer have to do anything?
You'll be used as a cheap source of fuel for those of us that have to maintain humanities metal overlords.
Re: So how did intelligence emerge in humans?
I believe that one of the prevailing theories at the moment is that our intelligence was a consequence of our ability to throw rocks at targets with a great deal of accuracy.
