They did. Their husbands, sons and brothers where out there in the field and they worked their arses off to supply them and keep them alive. That´s a natural maternal reaction. Nazi or not. In the former USA, now NSA occupied territory, the wifes, daughters and sisters of the GI´s where riveting bombers and marine destroyers.
The Nazi´s slaves sabotaged the weapons and ammo they where forced to produce. 50% or so of the V2s failed because the compasses or whatever where not spec. They are the unsung heroes in the Battle Of Britain. They knew, they would die of hunger, exstorcian or tuberculosis so they had nothing to loose and did their best to throw a spanner in the Nazi gear box.
Tomorrow it´s the Genocide Memorial Site in Kigali for me.
kicked off the mobile internet, Samsung and Apple overran it, Huawei is the paradigm changer. They know how the third world (spare me "developing countries") ticks and react to the market. The Western World wants to implant its own values. Now look at Mobile Money in East Africa. The Western World banks rally against such systems because it makes them obsolete. With the claim that you are either a telecom or a bank. East Africa refused to bend over to the international banks. Now there is Tecno and Huawei with budget phones but build in Mobile Money function. Colonial times are over and the third world picks what is best for them, no longer eating the shit that is downthroated to them by the first world. The villagers are paying the schoolfees via Mobile Money without having to waste one day or more to walk to the next bank, queing up for hours and being charged ridicioulus fees and bribe for their transfer. This makes the world a better place. Apple, Samsung are just toys for people with a status problem or small dicks. Nothing to do with usability. That´s, where Huawei kicks in. They do products for the market instead of creating markets for shit that noones needs. My P6 is the best phone i ever had. Nokia was "the" brand in East Africa. I still use my 1600, noone wants to steal it. In Nigeria it´s the Blackberry. Written off in the Western World but going strong on markets where the function matters, not the glitter. In 2030 Iphone will just be a footnote in the history of Telecommunication like Nokia. Not so Huawei. They provide the full package, PBXs, datacenters ... you name it.
A tall "muslim lady" in a Bhurka walks into the embassy ... and walks out again without being checked by MPD. Problem solved in a diplomatic way and millions of pounds saved for the tax payer. A scapegoat going its way to the butcher, that´s it.
invented the hipster look, then? MoD in Germany advices soldiers who are going to Afghanistan to grow a beard. Else they would be rendered a fagott by the local population.They come back being "Real Men" after a stint of being shot at by Taliban and shooting back at rocks. So being a "Hero Warrior", or looking like one still gets you into the girl´s pants quite easily. Come home with your shield or on it. With women like this, men will never get a chance to come to reason and cease killing each other (part from the Small Dick Syndrom wherby this is nowadays compensated for by taking a loan for a BMW or Audi and then killing themselves on the highway) Thanks gods, i´m too old for this shit. Again, another most amusing zero news article in The Reg. That´s why i love you.
As in Shooting a bullet
You could have slipped that spanish guy his 100€ "Stamp Fee" and everything would have been fine. Well, taking on the Bureaucratic Way adds some flavour to the truly exiting experiment of LOHAN. Shooting The Playmonaut somewheeere up theeeere! The Vogons have taken over and i love/laugh to be informed on how you cope with it. Thank You for that long awaited update. In the mean time ... aren´t there some Pin Ups of LOHAN available?
Winterkorn is fully responsible for what happened. Under his regime a climate developed that made things likes this happen. Knowingly or not. He employed the motherfuckers that took advantage of his way leading the the company. If you ever attended an Audi Management Conference you know that the top and middle management is willing to walk over dead bodies for their bonuses. Just like this guys with their pyramid scam schemes. Anyway: Buy VW shares now ! They are down by 30% today. In 4 weeks they will be up as usual and growing. Thanks to investment bankers who apply the same non existing morale standards as the managements of Big Players all over the world. I just wish i could find a million bucks overnight and put it in that scheme. It would put me out of my financial (relate) misery and the weekly back up routine would be nothing like a bad dream. :-)
You arrogant genius.
owes me a new keyboard. Wouln´t mind a layer of paint.
quite sure, he will not get many votes from the thousands of people who´s lifes where destroyed by his manyfolds deliberate bankruptcies. Now he is going for the big shot: Taking over the U.nhinged S.tupids of A.nalrica, turn it into some dubious company and file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. He might even get away with it by ruining the legistative structures, or what´s left of it, while he is in power. Retirering to his volcano lair with a bonus of some $trillion. Well, they won´t be worth much after he´s finished his business. Just make sure the bra of todays Playmate does not get tangled up with the push button of "The Suitcase". What a comedy. If it was a C-Movie.
You don´t know anything about technology, don´t you?
Don´t talk to me about grain mill infrastructure
Step 1: Push it
Step 2: Kick it
Step 3: Drop it
Still not operating? There might be a failure then.
The management of the IT- system in the company i mainly work for has been outsourced to a new "IT" company. The system was based on the now no longer supported "windoof server whatever version". So, against my strong vocal advice to make the switch to a Linux based system they decided to go for yet another Windows system which will be no longer supported in 4 or 5 years. So it was new servers, migrating the rental and sales database, xchange ... I went on leave for two month during this period. Last week i came back to find that on every keyboard, nice and tidy, had been placed a P-Touch sticker with Username and Password. The Password being: 1234 for every account. I´m not shitting you. Getting my coat.
is the most precise description for this dead born child. It either vaporizes or rains down after everyone interested had a good look at its composition.

Thank you so much for reminding me. Moving to the Bricks that are left of my vinyl Wall, pulling out that jewel and throwing it onto the 1210, Setting The Controls For The Heart Of ... my sound system ... Oi! Where´s the spliff? Thanks again
The Pig! The Pig! Only time in my life that i lost the plot and my mates had to drag me on the ground and dose me with yet another joint to calm me down. But that was a different show, in front of the Reichstag.
quite dissapointed that he comes up with this interpretation of the production 30 odd years later while it was clearly the whole reason to watch the movie at the time. But then it seems to be just another PR wash up. He does not need to do it for the money, he´s rich enough and he certainly does not need to give us fans a "new" interpretation of something that could have only be performed once and everyone understood at the first time anyway. (Except he himself maybe) And if he reads this: The stage crew hate you because you are a cunt, Waters
@ Thomas Gray
It´s Blues man, what are you talking about?
There was only one "Wall" show ever worth mentioning. I attended two or three others of them. Delivered on the freshly cleared minefields between East and Western Berlin. Well, the mines were cleared but not the decatons of DDT sprayed by the DDR to keep the minebelt clean of weeds. We half a million of kids went there and kicked up the dust inhaling a superdose of that shit. I was sick for a week afterwords. Anyway it was worth it. The scene of Ute Lemper´s microphone being switched off and she throwing it on the ground and stampeding off stage ... one of the big moments in Rock`n`Roll history. She was just too full of her " I´m a star in the States" attitude and completly unprepared for her song. I will forever tip my hat to the sound guy who had the balls to just switch her off. It´s not in the movie of course... but I, me, myself am in it. I managed to get in the place for the rehearsals. A lot of the audience shots were taken the night before the show and its the Riggers and Stage Hands you see on the movie.
Have a Cigar
I want one! To put down the foot one needs a salt lake track. I might be running short of change for that. :-) And then ... One kicks off at one end of the lake and stops at the other end and has not gone anywhere except across the salt lake. Outstanding engineering! Add driverless controls, go into mass production and the world is your oyster.
Take your Geiger Counter, check on the mushrooms in your neighbourhood, find that they are 3000 fold overcontaminated and try to publish it. Then come back to me.
@ Grumpenkraut. Go in a bookshop and ask for Hitler´s "Mein Kampf". There goes your freedom of speech. In Kampala you can buy it in german, english, french, russian and even swuaheli. Publications of Ulrike Meinhoff. Then there is this british Holocaust denier, forgot his name. I despise this people and their eruptions but they are there and one can not just close ones eyes and wish they go away. Same goes for my (in the eighties) publication of sucessfully getting out of mandantory military service.
Once you get out of Mummy´s basement and lift your voice, the Powers That Are will cut your tongue out. Same goes for reports on the caesium contamination of mushrooms 30 years after Chernobyl. Geiger counters are rated military gear since Chernobyl so it is illegal to own one and publish measurements. Leucemia cases in the areas around the nuclear power plants of Brunsbüttel and Brokdorf. Try to publish this.
Wake up, my blue eyed fellow Kraut.
Owh. LP is just taking the piss and you guys fall for it. That´s why i love coming to this site. If he is serious he would piss me off and because of that i would still love to visit this site. Subjective reporting is what the world keeps turning and discussions going. Yet another tip to the hat for El Reg and LP.
taking into account 7.3 Billion people constantly radiating 100W of heat that would be 730 Billion Watts permanently. Don´t know how this figure relates to whatever else releases warmth into the enviroment, but makes me think.
@ john devoy
What´s modern on that?
Please accept my apologies. Having spent more than a decade abroad and being a disciple of Terry Pratchett and repeatedly having been asked in which part of London i grew up, i might have turned arrogant against my fellow germans. (Now, there is a sentence only a german can come up with) English is the language of the IT trade. I understand that a hairdresser or a plumber (no offence ment) has no need to converse in english and the years at school spent with english lessons were wasted on them. As were my French lessons i have to admit. In IT, i expect everyone to be able to converse and negotiate in English. I became sick and tired of having every english speaking caller being forwarded to my desk. The outcome is that my work mates started to watch their Blue-Rays twice. Once in German, and one more time in English with subtitles. The results are amazing. They can even crack the odd joke now. No apologies for the East German reference though.
So you´re located in East Germany then, where after 25 years, still noone learned english. Well, they are too busy burning refugee homes.
is still alive! Thank gods! Now to the comments.
Sorry to appear pedantic but what dB are you meaning? "The dB is a logarithmic way of dscribing a ratio. The ratio may be power, sound pressure, voltage or intensity or several other things." Source: http://www.animations.physics.unsw.edu.au/jw/dB.htm
talking about this certain company that bought Skype and then announced that it will no longer support third party hardware? AverComm had this fantastic Skype Bridge video conferencing box that enabled the Boss to partake on conferences while being chauffeured to whereever. Open source my ass, Microsoft. And 1k€ of my money right into the bin.
on Google. No wonder she´s afraid of being pushed out of the game by Kobe Tai´s artificial private parts
Is she married? To What?
The question comes up how she made her way through Cambridge. Not with her brain, that´s for sure.
There´s porn for women as well. Whatever the difference
If that issue was not so serious you might even have a point there.
This lady owes me a keyboard. I always thought such plants can only flower in the US of A. Great to see that an hithero unknown (at least to me) university made it into the Reg. Wait ... is it a PR stunt? Anyway, going through this 200 or so comments will make my evening. Top Notch! ... My wife is getting concerned because i just cannot stop laughing ...
@ Voland's right hand: I agree with you. The IS like Al Quaida made out the western worlds constitutions and procedures and values as their weakness which this camel f***ers are exploiting. The United Shitheads of Armswielders where their first opponent and the radicals brought home total victory. The US constitution is no longer worth the paper it was written on, procedures are no longer respected and values have been flushed down with waterboarding. This is a time to take the gloves off but at the end of the day we should not come back from the battlefield and find that all that we fought for is no longer there. As a Passport holder of a country that did not fall for the WMD swindle in Iraq i think there is still some reason left in the western world so that we might overcome this maleé bruised but not broken. The UK must be careful not to go the way the US did. The western world is under attack, no doubt, but we have to make sure that we are not loosing what we are fighting for while we battle. And now go and wipe this fuckers off the fucking planet.
What a poor presentation of this 3 monitor setup. Well, i don´t know the circumstances of the event. If this was intended to impress journos; complete fail. Throwing sheets of Molton over some chairs, placing the screens on the chairs, the seat right on ground level (consisting of a purpleish piece of carpet) ... My Boss would have kicked my balls into orbit and the rest of me into the gutter. But then, i´m not a member of the "gaming elite" who might probably give a rat´s fart about how things are presented. No real difference to Mummy´s basement, so what. More food for the downvoters: In the professional multimedia installation world BenQ has to cue up at the end of the line, right after Bose. Bs hype all around. Scratch your hipster beards and downvote me from your iPhone. Poor fellows. 3 billion flys can´t be wrong! Eat ...!
My bloody apprentices, while i was on leave, threw away all "outlandish" power cables. They are toothbrushung the server room floor right now.
stuns me time and time again. To find such a small piece of gravel somewhere ouuut theeeeere! Makes me want to live my life again and study astronomy and forget about whinging clients: "Uh, the internet is so slow"
yeah, i´m going to swap Munich for Africa again. People are the same: Tribalistic, selfish, ruthless and corrupt. Only, the weather is better down there.
ain´t nuthin´ but a numbnut with a profile neurosis. His first project was trying to implement a roadtax for "foreign trucks". He failed miserably. Now he is cocking about broadband to make it even into ElReg (shame on you). Well, his cock is a bit too small. German infrastructure needs a boost about 10 billion €. This 3 billion € are pissed in the wind.
is kaputt. Another 30 Million learnt it the hard way. So what? The sooner someone might come up with a better idea of how to "communicate".
"The individual or individuals who are responsible for this straightforward case of theft should be held accountable to the fullest extent of international law."
AM still has it´s data, nothing has been deleted. If something is stolen, its no longer where its supposed to be. So i guess, it was no theft, it was copying.
As long as program makers don´t produce high quality contend there is no point in watching their crap in UHD. A turd stays a turd.
