Re: But you don't have to be using Facebook/G+ to be on it.
I avoid fb and twitworld like the plague, but people I know and like in real life post things from me on both, and other people I know and like IRL tell me that they've seen the posts, although there's no real-life or even Internet social network connection between posters and people who say they've seen things posted. The latter tell me I have something of an ID on both sites.
Don't like your suggestion (sign up or you won't know what's going on), I prefer to vote with my virtual feet and just stay away.
If you or any other fellow commentard has links to entertaining or informative info on this, I'm sure I would not be the only appreciative reader.
Re: Star Trekking....
Execrable voices, trite copied patterns, hated it within a minute of first hearing it, just how and why did such a piece of ... get major airplay?
Fan of many 'novelty' recordings, would be interested to hear a justification for that one.

Tho' a wee bairn at the time I first heard it, the ultimate Star Trek inspired pop song has to be
Where's Captain Kirk?

Masterpiece of punk pop.
Star Trekkin' is so corny in so many ways!
Re: I disagree, it's the legs not the shoes
There is a pottery shard from ancient Greecd bearing the words `I hate a woman thick about the ankles'. Since reding it the first time, always had resonance here.
... seamed stockings and a bow just on the ankle line, works on me, although the last pair I had are too laddered to wear now.
The tragic types who wear high heels to conceal short legs and stalk about leaning forward, all too common where I'm from, ugh!
Crap `study' but lots of interesting comments from commentards! Not tech, but nice to see.
Re: Requisite pop culture references
Carpenter does and has done a lot of great stuff, but I don't think you'll find anyone who knows and has taste loving any of his *remakes* more than the originals.
His version of The Thing was alright, but the original is a lot better.
If they should have the temerity to drill, they may well unleash the many-angled ones, OH NO, just as we approach the 21st (OMG) and the eternal winter solstice to follow.
Ooh, ducky, aren't we the charmer!
Please supply a concise definition and the derivation of 'shirt lifter', as a learner it puzzles me.
I'm surprised at the emphasis on Bletchly, the concepts of the Turing machine, test of Turing completeness, and the Turing test, in that order, are far more important.
The only reason a machine will pass the last of those is human stupidity, after all, stupid, lonely, or deranged people gave Eliza a passing grade a good while back.
Re: Child's Play
Well said, that man (Gareth 7)!
Some commentards always trot out the same tired analogies, refreshing to see a new and fitting one.
... and cheers to Mr. McK, hurt nobody, been through hell already.
Why crash them where nobody can see it?
Sounds like they've got a little carried away with the video games in idle hours, science and engineering to the end, my foot.
Is there a knowledgeable person about who can explain why they are throwing the probes at a non-observable spot?
Re: In the television show "Blake's 7"
I'm not, may well be disinformation, but far from a surprise if it's true.
Could go into real anecdotes, but will just suggest you remove the blinders.
When these Psion threads pop up, I really wonder if people claiming to have had a trouble-free experience with the series 5 or 5mx actually use them as pocket computers or leave them on their desks with the shell always open，one way to avert their hideous quality problem （I had to get my screen cable replaced twice, just because I opened and closed the shell a few times a day).
Mark E. Smith's line
made with the highest of British attention to the wrong detail
comes to mind.
5mx was a great machine but a massive failure because the screen cable was guaranteed to fail if you simply opened and closed the shell a few tens of times.
Psion knew about the problem, but refused to acknowlege it.
Their only decent recourse would have been a product recall and free replacement of the badly designed component.
They chose not to do that, putting them on the nose with people who the thing.
Biggest reason for their fall, IMHO.
