thanks, a guy at work has just recommended Deezer too so I'll be taking a look at it tonight (20 minutes before a 2 hr commute is not the time to change music platforms..)
Can anyone suggest a good alternative to spotify with no ads, offline play and a good library?
Preparing to pay since soon I'll have a freshly cancelled subscription..
...if you happen to be an asian guy innocently using a blackberry on the plane
ban the size of the tanks? well they're refillable... so it's a 5 seconds inconvenience
a cap on bottles to 10ml? buy more bottles (which is annoyingly more expensive)
I don't see the point of these measures at all, but if it stops there I'd be relatively happy
Smokers are net contributors to the NHS and the economy so with that and no doubt pharma and tobacco lobbyists greasing palms it's hardly surprising
Me, ym wife and a few mates play board games every fortnight, glad to see some reviewed here :D
my summer games this year have been Cosmic Encounter, Viceroy (kickstartered so got it early) and Alchemists mainly
I think it's great
we might balk at drinking that but I doubt people drinking sludge out of a ditch will turn their noses up at clear disease-free water no matter where it came from
Gates doesn't have to do all this stuff; he's rich enough to kick back and enjoy his considerable lot in life so it's unfair of the people who criticise him for it
we just swapped sticks with each other if we were jealous of a particularly good one
"here you can borrow my stick for a while it's a bazooka"
*holds out straight thick branch and looks longingly my friend's new find of a stick with an exact 90 degree bend*
but to everyone else except me it looked like a stick ;)
rockets lifted gantry, cranes and all into space
and those people are armed. scary!
oh dear, you done gone sassed cats on their home territory: the internet
but why would you tell the graphics monkey?
if the ball is going to be chosen according to what you want let the normal means of how it is read and appear on screen happen as normal
"hey we can really use this cheating to cut out latency on the numbers being shown on screen by 0.3 seconds" doesn't seem like a risk someone would take..
there were actually no winning tickets, so the misread number seems the right explanation
sorry but i had a bit of a grin during that, I don't get a choice about paying my taxes and it's a good 25% of my pay, so don't expect me to shed a tear because you were made to do your share too
I notice this is credited to "Team Register", because I'd looked to see just who I'd lost a lot of respect for
A burglar can get through my front door given enough time, Doesn't mean I'm going to be defeatist and just leave it all unlocked though
I'd feel safer if instead of spying on us they took the same money and shored up our cyber defences to stop other people from spying on us
I wear a watch because you don't pull your phone out for everyone to see in Middlesbrough, so when i want to know the time old faithful will do the job
<article about a Linux distro morphed into a bad thing..>
"hey, this looks like good ammo to use against microsoft!"
I'm an Opensuse user and your zealotrous non-sequitur even struck me as ridiculous
ok you're right i suppose, maybe not innocent, but definitely innocent until proven guilty at least
but you have to have a reason to dig for that proof, not go fishing
the only demographic that should matter is "innocent members of the public"
Somewhere between Peel and now, people have forgotten what his principles were for; policing by CONSENT
To maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police
they should get tried in one of the countries in question and get sent down in one of the jails they're helping send people to
Always worthy of praise when the card details aren't there and even forum passwords are salted and hashed
It seems sometimes like this doesn't happen anywhere, so it's nice to see when people do it better
Everyone in the GCHQ, NSA etc should be sacked and fresh people brought in, they've been working in isolation with only each other with the same views for company for so long that they're bouncing the same views back at each other, escalating things to one-up each other and things start seeming like good ideas when they went out of control a long time ago
they need an outsider to say "woah there, i forgot about you eager little nanobots and now there's grey goo everywhere", the culture is screwed and they need sensible people put in to replace them and theresa may needs to be hanged for treason
Ah didn't realise it was reflections that did it, that would explain why there were posters of it all over the office
yeah exactly. look at this scenario:
Boss wants to see who might be a health insurance or absence risk due to being genetically predisposed to cancer or something
take a shit in the office and suddenly you can have all your employees screened and make anyone with a likely heart condition etc redundant
its not so much as for hurting someone's feelings as "you just asked someone to provide a DNA sample which even cops need a very good reason for"
Given how American employees are treated anyway I approve of this if only as a warning to anyone else thinking of trying the same thing
NSA spies on German citizens, French citizens, nothing done
NSA spies on Merkl, Sarkozy etc, EMERGENCY GOVERNMENT MEETING RIGHT NOW, MY PRIVACY!
I worked in a bank for years, and even on the kinda-common occasion that a few grand went missing (usually just fell down the back of a safe etc to be found by the locksmith next day) we would offer to produce our bags etc and the boss would categorically state that there will never be a bag search
and yet a frigging ipod nano or something goes missing and these people take this shit?
All I wanted from the app was the kind of thing you get at the bottom of the screen: position, interval, numbers of pits so far and tyres for each driver
On the TV it might show the top 5, then a few minutes later decide to show the top 10, but if you're watching a battle it's nice to be able to glance at the app and see "Ah this guy hasn't pitted yet so this battle won't last long"
And it used to a season or two ago, i haven't seen it be very inaccurate personally (It's updated at each section of a lap rather than proper real-time) , but all the information I want, that WAS there, now isn't
Ever tried herding cattle?
yes. it'd take 2 of us to herd all our cattle down the road to a field 1/4 mile away and we were 10 years old and waving a stick
here's how we solved it when it would inevitably happen every few weeks:
open nearest gate, wave arms, close gate
farmers will check surrounding fields and all know each other, cows are tagged too
how many thousands of pounds did this cost? i'd have done it for a pint and the cow'd be fine after
YEAH! Australian words for Australian people!
a man said "deja vu" on neighbours the other day. NEIGHBOURS! this simply cannot go on with their hoity toity words
Let's grab a few of these cars and kick-start the revolution brother!
(Well you do, I'm not Australian but I'll watch and supervise)
yeah but you rarely need to open up any other kind of watch. mine is on its second battery and cost about 30 quid 10 years ago
and for 30 quid i don't expect or want upgradability
Unfortunately, when I contacted tech support I was unable to convince the person I spoke to get Talk Talk to put out a general warning
whether that person wanted to or whether they were clockwatching until lunch time they're tech support, and have precisely 0 authority in anything, or know anyone who'd know anyone who'd know anyone who would
I've worked in broadband tech support, you're isolated from the company
which for some reason isn't accessible in control panel anymore
run wuapp from task manager when there's another release out
Didn't know about this. Heading down to london for the faith no more gig anyway so might ask the wife since we're already using it as an excuse to see matilda again anyway
This ensures I’m crying with fear and frustration early on and constantly hoping for the glittering glow of a respawn lamp, which are very few and far between.
put me right off, i just don't have the time and play to relax, not to get angry
i tried reading that but 11% is a nice regulated return on an expense which is really 100%. took 5 readthroughs before i gave up
then the use of underscores for some crazy reason and it brought me back to the first time i read amanfrommars1's comments, and i aborted
The difference between the stock market and Kickstarter is over a long period you will get a decent return on investment, whereas kickstarter you just seem to get a load of 1st gen beta products in gold with a pretty certificate.
or in the case of board games, where you can end up getting it for down to 30% of the price of what it'll sell for in retail in a few months time, and usually with bonus components which sell for a lot on ebay if you don't end up liking the game
yeah that's what i thought. big banging a release onto millions of people at once is a really stupid idea, so that 18,000 figure strikes me as a phased rollout
oh they're written properly, it's just not for us they were written
If you look at my post below in another thread you'd see I'm already aware of this fact, it's clearly a way to exploit a loophole "we can't collect the data on our people... oh the but Americans can..and then give it to us..." hardly within the spirit of the law
i think they mean it came from America. GCHQ can't spy on the UK as much as they'd like and the NSA can't spy on the US, so they spy on each other's home turfs and swap the intel
I kid you not
no one is ever going to trust GCHQ ever again, and nor should we. They've done worse to the freedom of this country than any foreign power or paramilitary group and should be rewarded with the contempt and suspicion of the nation
My set top box ix broken because it doesn't balance on top of my flatscreen TV and keeps crashing onto the floor
The government investment in Lily Cole's IT projects will be due for return soon and that'll pay for many many years like this one, so don't even worry, just carry on as normal
