Re: sign of the times
I believe that may, in fact, have been the joke.
I think I speak for a lot of Irish people when I quietly mutter "Uh-oh..."
Surely it's Lindsay who should be waiting outside El Reg Towers, wearing an SPB T-shirt?
Re: I'm Sad
And apparently my DILDO was just a bit too much for LOHAN ;)
Re: and if all else fails
Heavy ez good. Heavy ez reliable. If et does not work, you cen always heet heem with et.
Re: The conspiracy becomes clear...
Not that I know of. Whether he was actually as anti-MS as he seemed, or was just stirring the pot for shits and giggles, I do not know - but nothing of value was lost by his banning in any event.
Re: The conspiracy becomes clear...
So Eadon was a representative of Best Korea? It would explain a lot.
OK folks, any theories as to WinPho's popularity there?
Or black. Black as the coffee that fuels many a shed project.
Re: Why not somewhere else in Yurope?
Or hire a boat and launch it from International waters!
Payday is Thursday night for me
Hope there's one of the pint glasses left by then!
What metadata though?
Store enough "metadata" and you don't need to store the URLs.

Re: Andrew Orlowski
I agree - he's writing from a position he fully and passionately believes in. Regardless of agreeing or disagreeing, that makes most of his stuff entertaining to read.
Re: This article's about the minority
"You can even make a prime time TV series about how nerdy and unsocial they are"
Ah, you're referring to Graham Linehan's "The IT Crowd"?
. Imagine if you were to try and make a TV show about how catholic priests were all misogynistic drunken perverts."
Funny that, as we're speaking of Graham Linehan...
Irish coffee needs to be served in a glass and topped with cream - otherwise you've just got coffee with whiskey in it.
I'm of the opinion that Irish Coffee is a great way to ruin three perfectly fine liquids in one go though,
Re: Explosives factory
Launch a seperate kickstarter for it if funds would be an issue - I'd chuck a few quid at that too. An actual, honest-to-goodness El Reg SPB Explosives Factory!
Plus once LOHAN has soared skywards, I have no doubt you'll be doing some other shenannigans involving rocketry. Would be a handy certification to have.
Standing by for Kickstarter
I can't contribute gear, knowledge or anything else technical, but I can damn well chuck you a few quid and be hapy to help.
Re: One inconvenient design flaw...
From the article - "The cover attaches magnetically and folds up to protect the screen, or back to enable tablet use without detaching it completely."
Re: heard similar please before
Not a huge problems at gigs I go to see. People don't tend to use a €500 tablet to record the gig from a mosh pit.
Not for long anyway.
I know you haven't requested an acronym for the wooden testing rig, but in the spirit of Lindsay-related terms thus far...
Automobile Roof Rack Enhanced Simulation Tester
Channel 4 did not fecking invent feck. It's massively common in Ireland, and have three guesses where the guy who wrote and created Father Ted is from...?
A lot of people seem to have the mistaken idea that its only purpose is to convert into a there-and-then sale.
No pipes in evidence either though - the project is doomed.
a black female lesbian
As opposed to a black male lesbian?
Never heard about the BBC bio before - is it worth a watch?
Digital Impact Limitation for Deciduous Obstacles
items that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual, or religious intolerance
So that's pretty much every gangsta rap album ever then. Assuming they're banned from eBay too?
Re: In the end...
He gets strange ones as well as proper sick ones. He told me there was one guy who was arrested for possession of child porn, and when they went through his hard drives they also found several hundred photos of him fucking chickens. As in, prepared chickens from a supermarket or butcher, not live ones.
Re: In the end...
I know a guy who has that exact job - he's a Detective who specialises in digital forensics and such.
Not a job I envy, I'll tell you that. They have mandatory councilling sessions and so on every six months or so, but according to him most cops only last two or three years in that department tops. Less if they have kids of their own. He's able to handle it (no kids, no plans to have any) but he reckons he'll request a transfer soon enough anyway - it's gotten to a stage where people get suspicious of anyone who stays in the job.
Re: Anyone considering buying a Toshiba drive would do well to review their warranty...
Had a 6-month old Tosh drive replaced under warranty earlier this year.
Re: Skipping versions?
Could that provide an effective workaround for this issue? Introduce a 2008R2 DC to the 2003 network, then upgrade/replace the 2003 DC to 2012R2?
Re: " were perfectly comfortable with the televisions they currently use"
Absolutely. If 4k takes off, I'll probably pick up a second hand one in 4 or 5 years time for buttons.
Got a 4 year old 50" Panasonic 1080p telly last year for €300 for example. Apart from having a rather chunky bezel, it's great.

Without Sysadmins to keep the servers humming and the tubes flowing, I wouldn't have a job.
Because it was too like Facebook in look and feel. Why was that a bad thing? Because the suits and executives in its target companies thought "What? They want us to pay for this? But it's just like Facebook, and Facebook is free! We want a private Facebook, that's as free as Facebook - why is that a problem?!"
Re: Bloody Americans
The Clovis people no doubt had unmistakable evidence that the gomphothere in question posessed weapons of mass destruction.
I seriously want one of those canoes
That is all.
Re: Sad, but hardly surprising
Bill Gates didn't get rich by writing a lot of cheques.

I suggest (courtesy of Google Translate of course) "Inspiration favet taberna"
"Inspiration Favours The Pub"
Did the Chinese government actually get their hands on the info, or were these three nabbed before they could exchange the data?
I have a cat, and wouldn't be a bit bothered if one of my neighbours installed this. In fact, I might give it a go myself - furry little bastard ruined my last lawn re-seeding.
Re: Fat dogs with huge jaws should also work
Fat dogs with huge jaws might prevent the cat crap issue, but what does one do about the fat dog crap?
Web Developer Toolbar for Firefox. Mostly redundant now with all the built-in dev tools in the major browsers, but ten years ago it was a godsend.
Not a lot - same as there's not a lot stopping someone from emptying your tank of petrol with a siphon, but thet's still a bit of a rare occurence.
Re: That Bill Grundy interview ...

Re: For those damned yoof amongst us:
And with a bit of trial and error, and possible a few extra jumpers, you could make it read out anything you liked (within the constraints of either two or three letters, depending on the readout of course).
The anti-helicopter wires it hit
There's an interesting backstory to why they're installed in the first place.
Re: What would Freud say about this....
They'll be missing a trick if they don't call it Teddy Fuxpin.
"Nook pricing is where the real levels should be"
Not if one wants to turn a profit on them apparently.
Re: What's the problem?
King Of Foo never said "People are stupid". He said that there are stupid people, which is pretty much indisputable - but never generalised as to numbers or percentages. Given that he also went on to say that he considers himself stupid, I fail to see what relevance today's XKCD (the moral of which is, don't say "People are stupid" if what you really mean is "I am smart") comic has here.
Not *all* of them.....
