Make Electric Cars wait
If eco-freako electric car drivers really cared about the environment, they wouldn't be looking for benefits like driving in bus lanes and getting priority over everyone else - It's obvious the most environmentally friendly thing for the to do is for them to give way to everyone else, so that the emissions of gas-guzzlers are minimised - that's why I never give way to Pri-arses
Make then wait......
Testing in a representative environment
Why should the EU test in a representative environment - it's not like they do this for anything else...
Hands up anyone who's managed to get anywhere near the offical mpg figures for a car?
Apple have already patented Memory, and SSD, and V-NAND, and 3D, and anything else you were just about to think of.....
Alien - because we all know than NAND is Area 51 tech
and that is why
prison labour should be something meaningless, non-production and mind numbingly boring - like breaking rocks.... or working in IT :-)
So when Virgin accidentally ported my phone number to someone else for 3 weeks
does that mean they could also have given all my money to them as well?
It's OK though, because after spending hours and hours on the phone, they eventually got my number back... and credited £30 compensation TO THE WRONG number!
Have none of you heard of Torque on the Android AppStore
Add a generic £12 Bluetooth OBDII reader from ebay and a cheap tablet and you have a fully customisable instrument instrument cluster and SOOOO much more including all your entertainemnt needs, sat nav, a full log of your journeys uploaded to YOUR own personal server and viewable on Google maps, complete will all engine parameters.
Get Torque - there's even a free version to try before you buy but well worth the money for the paid one
RX8 drivers don't need a rev counter just a beeper - 1st gear, accelerate until beep at 9500rpm, second gear, accelerate to beep - oh, you're at the national speed limit? What are the other 4 gears for then?
Re: Limited Expansion
No that I'm bitter or anything......
Their expansion plans are now so limited, they won't even pull a cable 20m through their existing trunking between their street cabinet and my house to connect me to fibre - on that basis, they lost a customer willing to pay for the complete broadband/phone/tv package.
Houses that connected in the Telewest days in my street get fibre, the houses next door, with all the infrastructure in place for the service but old RF cable between cabinet and house, get cr@ppy ADSL instead.
No aspiration, no wonder BT are making fat profits again
The problem with Wooden trains
is that they wooden work....
Why they needed the NI Numbers
is already implied in the article - as payroll records are tied to NI Numbers, they needed them to deduct membership fees.
My wife got her letter a couple of weeks ago; it is full of weasel words explaining that they believe that, to the best of their current knowledge, no personal fraud appears to have been attempted, as far as they can tell, given al the facts that they are currently aware of....
The excuse is ful of about as many holes as their security - as far as I am aware, based on the fact that I am currently aware of, excluding those that I may become aware of in the fulness of time or which I may have inadvatently been aware of at some point in the past but have subsequently forgotten. E&OE
I've found myself buying from Dixons a couple time times this year - the primary reason being that they were cheaper that buying online - now that is strange. The fact that you can actually look at the goods you're buying is a double bonus.
So that either means that online prices have risen or Dixons has got cheaper - or both I guess.
When can I buy one for home use?
More reliable than Solar or Wind power, and with the feed in tarriff, I could sell most of the daytime power back to the grid and probably make a profit
The Mother-in-Laws Christmas Present sorted
They just don't
make them like they used to....
Anyone want to take bets on how much of our current kit will still be working 35 years from now?
Remind me, does Apple hold the patent on self distructing hardware or do they rely on fashion to make their stuff obsolete?
I'll let you know how it goes
Just about to buy a couple of these for our HPC implementation
GIVE ME MORE POWER!!!!
If the person sitting next to me....
Spends even a small part of the time on the phone, they'll find thenselves making their calls from OUTSIDE the plane
Oh hang on, only "Vice Presidents in charge of Sales" will be able to justify the calls on their expenses and they'll be up the front of the plane, so they won't bother me in cattle class.
RIP the last sanctuary from the mobile phone
Perhaps they'll have a phone section of the plane for the pariahs, a bit like the old smoking section?
I wonder how thin the stickers are? would they fit on the inside of the back of my mobe case so I could pay by stealth bonk? I quite like the idea of a stealth bonk
And why limit outselves to affixing the sticker to our mobe? There are endless possiblilities and I think El Reg should open a competition for the most innovative or unusual instrument to be waved in front of the payment terminal....
