Almost makes me want to take up Napoleonic reenactment and get a muzzle loader, say a Baker rifle - no! a Volleygun!
Apparently being a reenactor is a valid reason for having a shotgun permit.
Spin off from credit card number sales?
Sites selling the access codes to use someone else's account?
This will end in tears.
Re: I should be so lucky
I burn through 2-3GB a month with VM with unlimited data for £15.
though with a Galaxy Ace Plus I'm not sure it's worth it - roll on contract renewal time.
Re: "...a mark of mental health..."
Why not replace the word "gun" with "car" ?
Even more lethal in my mind.
Re: No ipod touch 6th generation
Thanks, nor do I, unless it's karma for being a troll on occasion.
She Who Must Be Obeyed works for a part of the NHS that mandates no personal mobile phones while working. She gets round this by using an ipod Touch for her notes, ebooks etc. Plus there is an ipod dock in a couple of the theatres for music during operations.
Unfortunately the Gen 4 ipod is swhowing its age and is refusing to run some updated apps so I was looking to get her a new 6 gen.
If Apple don't want my money - fuck em.
No ipod touch 6th generation
So no spending at Apple this year.
Just a pity he hasn't invented the i.gag
Or is that the next apple product?

Same here, mines gone AWOL (argh! worn out liver? XD)

A mass of 2*10^30 kg hydrogen by itself is sufficient to initiate a stable fusion reaction
Where would we find something like that?
/me looks up.

Sure it wasn't a dodgy spear sales rep? That would explain setting fire to it.
Wouldn't want to stand under that workplace hub...
Can imagine the BOFH arranging for an IT feedback meeting under it though....
Sounds like it's for gilding turds, but without the gold.
Re: Tin foil? That'll be the third aisle
I don't see that as being mutually exclusive.
Re: Let there be light!
A sky that isn't orange?
I envy you.
It looks like a Ferrero Rocher to me.
A reprocessing plant like this one would be sensible- straight from high level waste to electricity.

No, use Kerbal Space Program!

Re: Ah Tesco "... layout which will let folk do their shopping most efficiently"
But that will allow folk more time to spend money in other shops rather than here!
Pretty much a repeat of what happened at Phoenix IT.
Have they managed to get a stable board yet?
Having had a Fire HD since last Christmas its been in use pretty much every day.
Music - seems good, amazon cloud of most music bought through amazon, plays mp3s, havent tried ogg or flac.
ebooks - will take .mobi natively, Moon+ reader (free in kindle app store) will take epubs.
Access to usual apps, iplayer etc prices comparable to google play store.
Video - vidOnme app plays xvid fine
Battery adequate -ymmv depending on what app your running
Carousel - meh would rather have icons like most tablets.
Any UK release date for the kids version? Can't seem to find it on amazon.co.uk
Icon for what junior will put one through.
Re: Why no tracking device? @ShadowDragon8685
And that would be a problem because?
Re: Pebble's nearly there
Funny I was just thinking the Bluetooth in my car pretty much does that already.
Outside of the car I can spare the attention to the phone.
Just a question of :
a) remembering to turn bluetooth on when I get to the car,
b) not leaving the phone on the dash when I get out of the car.
Re: environmental cost
I also read it as don't expect a quick killing on aseteroid mining stocks - it will be a long time before they are price competitive for most materials.
True, most of them would drop Sky before Benson & Hedges.
BBC produces quality TV that the market can't...
Science and Natural History?
Someone better let Discovery know.

Re: Special Circumstances?
However the "Grey Area" is the one you really don't want to piss off.
Missed entry (ooerr...)

So what filth does the error message in system shock refer to?
"Our System Has been Shocked! But don't forget to salt the fries!"
on second thoughts I don't think I want to know....
Re: FTSE 100 yield is about 3.5%
True, however careful choice of investments can give somewhat higher. My SIPP is currently running around the 18% p.a. mark, if I had paid a little more attention and liquidated my small caps I could have made 25%+ this year. 30% if I wasn't limited in my choice of investment.
Working for one of the big 4 I need to be careful not to invest in any of our clients, I really don't need internal compliance asking me those type of questions.....
Re: @Hud Dunlap - Why have a license at all?
Some of us still do have bows, and practice. Mines a 60lb Grozer biocomposite recurve - yes I shoot trad, no sights, no arrow guide, not even gloves. Arrows are wood, fletchings feather with linnen bindings and the nocks are horn and not dayglo plastic.
No licence required, not even club membership needed if you have somewhere to shoot.
A 60lb draw bow is considered adequate to hunt deer in the states so will seriously inconvenience/kill a human. However it is not exactly a concealable weapon and can't be left strung and ready to fire.
Just a pity bow hunting is illegal in the UK - even for grey squirrels.
Look up quickly - nope its gone.
It's a H2G2 reference.
Re: Odd List
Tits like coconuts.
"you may have thought they'd have sorted out an exit strategy"
Why would they have done that? Someone else will have been voted in by then, it's their problem.
Re: Religion is like a penis @Moultoneer
That appears more cosmology, unsuported by observation I may add, than religion and not relevant to this discussion.
Religion is like a penis
Its fine to have one.
Its ok to be proud of it.
Just don't whip it out in public and wave it in other peoples faces!!

Re: It's Troll time!
Unlikely to move its employees out of Scotland?
Yep much easier to sack them and get fresh ones.
Denies plans for London HQ move?
Yep much cheaper in teh Norf.
Just reading between the lines........
It's Troll time!
As an Englishman I am fully in favour of Scotland voting yes.
Why you say?
1 - Standard Life and most of the other big pension firms will move south of the border, probably to somewhere cheap with lots of drones to hire - say the North East. (making Newcastle the financial capital of the world! Muhahaha...).
2- The Basques kicking off will distract the Spanish from whingeing about Gibraltar for a few years.
Icon for what Scotland should do.....
"What's going on in recruitment here?"
Maybe women just aren't willing to put up with the shit involved with the job?
Re: title is too long
I managed to get it to do what I want.
Uninstalled the fucker.
Re: "Looks like an ostrich, kicks like a roo."
But what does it taste like?
That would be why I never noticed any DNS problems then.
Definite fail by VM for locking the Superhub DNS away from the users.
I have heard that the reason is so that they don't have to support any user change to the DNS but since the third thing* they ask you to do is factory reset the router I don't see the point.
* First thing - reboot your computer, second thing reboot the router.
