Re: This isn't a killer app
It would make the pictures of my junk more interesting for a start...
Re: Conflicting Laws
Good point Number 6!
Can American courts compel a citizen to commit a crime in another country? I can't wait to find out the answer!
Re: American Manufacturing
Hey! What about your booming Crystal Meth industry?
How are anti-terror police supposed to listen to my voice mail now?
I'm going to have to start getting people to leave me messages on Viber.
I wish I worked for Google. (or Apple, Intel, or Adobe)
She is extremely pink!
Are the authorities sure she's human?
How is it at arse matching?
I need to know for a friend.

Would you be interested in buying a bridge?
He should have used 7 proxies.
Re: Someone vomited hashtags all over impossible.com
#yes, #but #you #can't #have #a #modern #site #without #hashtags!
Urgh! What a god awful site!
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.
Re: DON'T PANIC
No one likes Comic Sans.
Anything prefixed with "NSA denies"
Can be taken as the gospel truth.
Probably one of the few communication methods left that aren't under constant surveillance by the NSA.
Would it contravene the Computer Misuse Act?
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.
Re: He's relevant, regardless of how ignorant he is.
That's even worse!
It's quite sad really...
Rupert Murdoch thinks he's relevant and has something to contribute. Yet the man continually demonstrates his ignorance every time he utters his opinion.
Re: How about trial by combat?
Two MPs enter!
One MP leaves!
How about trial by jury for MPs?

Re: Did it double his manhood in size?
I too was wondering if there was any swelling.
I don't think that Prime Minister David Cameron knows what he's defending.
But he's just gone an squandered a ton of public money, so he's got to say something.
Is the headline similar to a Daily Mail article?
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?
Will this give me Terminator style night vision?
I read as far as the $500k a year development job...
And immediately started updating my CV
Re: peanut butter and jelly
Bacon and tomato sauce surely!
As far as I'm concerned...
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.
I can totally see this working.
Machines may be better placed to discover chunks of data that the scientists weren't expecting or even looking for.
"We are not making the IWL public."
Then how am I supposed to check to see if any of my websites are on it?
Re: block the domain from being accessed
Great idea :) That should solve the problem once and for all!
Re: Time for a big step back?
Upvote for the Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines reference. :)
There is smut available in 3D SBS format
Why wasn't this the subheading?
Re: Advanced AI is being developed to replace YOU who read this comment
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?
I can use my brain to fly through my brain to see my brain thinking about my brain?
How long until we can print the rest of the human?
It's only a matter of time...
Don't have a telly here either.
It's just easier to download shows off the internet and watch them at your convenience. Or indeed, in your convenience.
Or they could just use Google Glass...
...ok ok! I'm going!
Minors can give consent now?
District Judge Richard Seeborg might want to rethink that decision!
I was worried that Zuckerberg literally wanted my eyeballs then
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.
Re: HAL ... evil AI creation.
I totally agree. HAL wasn't evil, just misguided.
It couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of theives
It'll do no good for Albert Ransom, but I do take a little bit of delight in seeing someone get their comeuppance.
MS DOS Didn't get good until version 3.2
But you still needed a separate boot disk if you wanted to play video games. Unless you were some kind of batch file wizard.
Terrorism laws being used for something other than combating terrorism?
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!
So what do I do when my sofa eats my coffee table?
Re: Like El Reg readers have never had that experience before.

Re: "5 blade jobbie."
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.
We’d have been disappointed to be number two.
Ronald Hall owes me a new keyboard.
