Re: Trouble is ...
Don't concern yourself too much Matt. Their heads WILL get examined but it'll be by a coroner.
Re: Adastral Park ... call it by it's proper name BT Labs
I've always found "Martlesham Heath" means BT Labs to most comms tech (at least in the UK).
Pint (because it's Friday as far as I'm concerned)
Re: Could apply even to "real" conversations.
Swivel heads should try using their rear view mirror. Also effective for delivering a Paddington staern stare to rear seat kids.
Re: "a little more careful murdering people under the Stand Your Ground law
I'll see your Audi & raise you a BMW & Merc.
Chaging you watch every day.
I use my Blackberry as a bedside clock. The clock stays dim lit so long as it's charging. Sadly it doesn't take 7-8-9hrs to charge so goes out in the wee hours. Still working on a Badside mode that stays on all night. :)
What happened to the more icons poll?
Re: Might be overkill
Agreed. Red Dwarf X worked because they went back to the small cast, low budget British Sci-Fi model that worked 1st time around. It went wrong when they spent too much on it. Smeggin' loved RDX.
As a humble Video Conf/AV engineer I was drafted into a audio call with a client that couldn't get his VC to work in their Global Trusted WAN environment. His Global WAN Network Mgmt GURU was on the call.
This GURU insisted that the VidConf system had to be on IP address 192.168.2.32. Fortunately, our suppliers insist we have some networking knowledge so I had this vague discomfort that the IP address was divisable by 8.
The Sub net was a /29 so 192.168.2.33 worked fine. So much for experts.
But if we could see their TV broadcasts, they'd be 42 years out of date. Would you like to be judged on 1970s Corri St?
NASA aren't behind.
I've been using http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/index.html for a couple of years IIRC.
Yes, you have to proactuively visit it to get info, but last week I had half my local pub visitors out in the beer garden to watch the last ISS Transit.
Thanks for yours & other posts with most stuff to spot & way to spot it.
Math(s) Bacon & Ketchup
Heinz are currently offering (in the UK) a 700g bottle of ketchup as 50% more than standard 460g. Go figure. This is marketing, not maths.
Re: It's "math", singular.
Nice choice of that commonly used mid-atlantic word "fag".
Re: I hate to piss on anyones parade but...
Don't leave out the BeNeLux Mountain Rescue Squad :)
Might be soundbiting but...
“If climatic warming will be severe and long-lasting all ice will eventually melt,"
So if temperatures continue to rise, all the ice will eventually melt. Doh!
Glad I didn't waste 5 yeras at Uni to understand that simple concept.
Oh Lindsay dear....
There are many marvelous constructions based on various types of bread & bacon (& other stuff), but this is a bacon sarny contest to Bread, Bacon, (Opt butter/marg & sauce KT or brown).
Sorry A90, I'll definately be around next time I'm up there & were this a bacon bap contest things may have been different for me.
Oh! Lester, how about a roadside (UK) Breakfast Bap contest. Must include at least Bacon, Egg & Mug of Tea.
@James 51, whilst we're doing pedantry
From the reviews I have been reading for the iphone 5 Apple's lead is narrowing. Nokia is hanging in at the bottom segment of the market to. They just need to hang in their till they get the right product out
Surely you me4an bottom segment of market too & hang on in there.
Sheesh, & I though the Reg Hacks were bad at this stuff.
Re: acoustics prize
Apparently, Alan Davis is pretty good at it too. (See QI).
Swindons Magic Roundabout
I re-iterate. Hapy 40th.
Re: This is an interesting website
Yep! That was an interesting web site. Amazing that the UKI can manage such impressive stats given some of the knobs I've seen on the road.
Re: Five years? They're on crack
Thanks Doug, you just reminded me Happy 40th Birthday Swindons "magic" Roundabout.
Re: Google Car
Don't see a problemj with taht. If you want to drive to iMaps Paris, it'll get you there. Only it'll be Paris, Texas :)
Never heard of that before. An idea that may need revisiting?
Re: Delta Clipper DC-X
Great shame, it seemed to be going so well.
Plug in cars ain't green.
You still have to generate the electrickery somehow.
I think, if you asked the Cornish, they'd find that a positive outcome!
Please explain why...
do we have to have EC aproval to spend 9.3m of BT money, 15m of NCC money & 15m of BDUK money. Lets go Norfolk/Suffolk. Get on with it.
Re: Not even a hard-hat ?
100% agree. I'm actually more likely to fall over my feet in unfamiliar heavy steel capped boots than in my regular trainers. I even know a few construction site managers who agree non-building skills visiting techs/engineers etc probably are a bigger hazard with steelies on.
VGER 1 coming back....
I'd guess about 35 years.
Re: 35 years old
No more UHF TV here (UK). My late 50s luggable used until early 80s is now completely obsolete. No SCART either!
Some bunch of TWITS decides to start spoof-tweeting
Re: about values?
"Plane and simple"...oh no! Don't tell me Boeing & Airbus are getting into it too..
Brain: Weird, so did mine & don't recall ever hearing that joke. Great minds & all that.
Re: My postcard
