Re: So it's suddeny fun to gratuitously mock someone's sexuality
Go take a Placebo AC.
Imagine a random, infinite sequence of numbers containing nothing but +1s and -1s.
Somewhere within that sequence is a subset of numbers that contains a picture of a cat that wants a cheeseburger.
And doing Science!
I've always wondered why Ganymede was bigger on the inside than the outside,
It's all fun and games until...
Some twat fires up a megawatt CO2 laser.
With all the managers at the NHS now
There is really no excuse for them not maintaining their IT systems.

ooh eeh ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Tinfoil hats proven useless
But they still block thought probes right?
Re: Nemo motors
We all run in a tiny submarine...
"...internal mechanical responses that no one has seen before..."
Translation: We thumped it to see what happened.
When I said that I wanted to see more women in IT...
A clueless idiot like Lottie Dexter was not what I had in mind.
Re: There's Microsoft with their American centric view again.
Yeah, virtually every single bit has been replaced with the exception of the little screws that hold the hard drives in place and the motherboard mounting screws.
There's Microsoft with their American centric view again.
We don't buy it and bin it over this side of the pond. We take it apart, fix it, and then duct tape it back together. I've had the same computer for the last 20 years and it's working absolutely fine.
Why are they still piloting these things with meat brains?
Stick an autopilot and an aimbot in there and there you have it. Totally autonomous killing machines.
There already is a tax on radio and TV. In the UK at least anyway.
YouTube should do more?
Doesn't YouTube already compensate the artists that publish their art there?
If not, then what are all those adverts for?
You told me it was Ipswitch!
...It was a pun.
Lucky Dane gets to feel balls again
If I were Iain Thomson, I'd start buying keyboards wholesale...
So El Reg...
Is this site going to be investigated by Curiosity? How far away is this crater from our little atomic powered friend?
Otherwise known as: Buy our half finished game for full price now!
Don't Starve implemented this well, with frequent updates and a game that looks sort of finished now.
Kerbal Space Program.... I'm still waiting on biomes past Minimus, not to mention kerbalnaut training, and for them to finish off career mode.
I don't think I'll let myself get burned like that again.
“an interactive space where people can learn about new technology”
Like the Matrix?
Second-hand software buyers
"Second-hand software buyers are rarely in a position to tell whether or not the transaction is legitimate"
Surely that's the fault of microsoft, not the second hand software buyer?
Nobody knows where this quantum computer is
But we do know exactly how fast it is going.
It's the opposite of lilliputian.
I can quite see this happening...
iThing: What's wrong?
User: Well if you don't know then I'm not telling you!
Looks like a weather balloon to me
Re: The FBI and NSA hate anything....
My point is that HSBC got away with a paltry fine for their criminal behaviour. I think it's a fair bet that Charlie Shrem wont get such favourable treatment.
Re: The FBI and NSA hate anything....
And I'm sure that the HSBC have totally stopped laundering money for drug cartels.
What's your point?
A quick trip to the search engine and....
Turns out that 1D is already a thing.
Am I the only one that was disappointed that there was no maths?
It's a well-made American vehicle.
There's a first!
"We have a strict set of policies which govern what types of ads appear on Google."
Their main policy is "Do we have their money yet?"
Margaret Hodge says that like it's a bad thing
Do we really want multinational companies taking advantage of our infrastructure without contributing to its upkeep?
It was a gift from Tim Berners Lee
Although, I could see how you could confuse him with a god.
Today, low earth orbit
Tomorrow, The Moon!
All of those games
Are special cases of a more generalised theory of Connect-4.
So these guys are getting done for laundering $2 million...
Yet HSBC launder $881 million and get let off with no criminal charges.
They obviously didn't launder enough!
Like taking candy from a public domain baby.
It's a bit cheeky, copying someone else's game mechanism and then trying to claim it as your own IP!
Virgin Media has been walloped by Britain's advertising watchdog!
Awesome! Finally the ASA has taken a firm hand with blatant lies in advertising!
"Virgin Media was told that the ad must not appear again in its current form."
Oh :( That was a bit of a let down.
Re: Pussy whipped?
You've pawssibly stumbled onto a great application there. Patent it before someone whiskers it away!
Meanwhile: Real terrorists proceed unmolested.
The american stazi have got an awful lot of free time on their hands if they can waste resources like this.
Get over here and give me some sugar!
My batteries are running low.
The filter is working exactly as predicted.
Why is anyone surprised? The vast majority of savvy El Reg readers said it would do this, and lo it has come to pass!
I for one welcome our new death ray wielding overlords.
Re: Write me a thousand lines of bug free code.
10 PRINT "Hello, world!"
20 PRINT "Hello, world!"
996 similar lines snipped.
9990 PRINT "Hello, world!"
10000 PRINT "Hello, world!"
There you go! Totally bug free!
(It doesn't do anything, but then that wasn't in the requirements)
Re: @AC 09:54
Excellent idea! We should be able to upvote/downvote articles.
Nice to see ThrustVPS setting a good example.
I'd like to see more companies displaying that kind of honesty.
