Re: Moon is a harsh mistress
1. Get to Moon
"Oi! Big Nose!"
"you call me big nose one more time, I'll take you to the f*cking cleaners"
Can't quite put my finger on why...
... but I think I like the look of that beastie.
Re: there isn't a UK speed sign that says "70" or "60";
The M74 and M8 are both littered with 60 and 70 signs.
Re: Wolf, wolf I say!!
During the gold rush it was the shovel sellers who got rich. These guys would have just told you to use your hands whilst they attached the metal bit to the wooden bit, and to come back in a couple of months...
But we still need your money up front....
Re: If you can't see it..
(aka my boss)
"You listen here son, build the damn app, nevermind about security and all that (nevermind about documentation either but thats another story) -- if we ever get to the point where we need security it actually means the app has become successful, so we will do security *then* with the revenues generated from it"
Your boss sounds remarkably like the boss I had in my first dev. job.
Re: I'm voting yes but think it will be around 55% no.
Sometimes it sucks to be right.
Re: What are your predictions?
I'm voting yes but think it will be around 55% no.

Re: I've probably drank more of it than most Scots
And continue to do so, by the look of things.
Re: But would you want Salmond to be the President of Scotland?
Not especially but then who would you recommend? Compare Salmond to the two muppets currently battling for the UK hot-seat and you suddenly realise that some turds polish-up better than others.
AbelSoul I think you need to reread the post you're replying to. It asks why the English don't get on vote on Scotland staying, not on English independence.
Matters not. The English electorate could have had a vote on either (or anything else for that matter) by following the same steps. (Bit late now, granted, but that's hardly Salmond's fault.)
Re: Piers Morgan has said he will go back to America if Scotland Vote No...
I was planning on voting Yes but this changes things.
What I'm curious about is ... why the English cannot have one on if Scotland should stay.
Oh, but the English electorate *can* have a referendum, they just need to follow the same, simple steps as the Scottish electorate:
1. Persuade a political party to make it part of their manifesto.
2. Give that party majority vote in a parliamentary election.
3. Have your referendum.
Re: Well no-one believes Cameron's lies.
If this survey is accurate, more appear to believe Cameron's lies than Slamond's
Re: Around the World
Sounds like Roxanne would have been better off sending out a Message in a Bottle.
Even better than an iThing?

So that's what happened at Stirling Bridge.....
Re: Sod the IT arguments
rebuilt Hadrian's wall but a lot, lot higher.
Are you trying to give away half of Newcastle and Carlisle?
Bet they wish all evidence of his contribution had "auto-disappeared" too.
Looks like pretty nice bit of software.
I might download the SDK and have a tinker over the weekend.
Re: Eels - Up inside yer
Ah, The Mighty Boosh.
They don't make 'em like that any more....

Re: I trout it very much.
What an eel-conceived comment.
Re: Apologies in advance
Oh, ha ha ha haa! Ha haa! Nice one, Centurion. Like it. Like it.
CENTURION: Shut up!
Now Mr Z, give us a settings to STOP the videos from autoplaying. I for one don't want it.
Nor I. It seems to be yet another exercise in studying how much you can annoy your user base before they cease to be your user base.
Along with the recent enforced use of their messenger app on mobile devices, this has resulted in me barely using the site recently.
Re: Only one word comes to mind.
Dudes know how to tour...
Unlike, say, for example, Pink Floyd.
Given that there are only two members of Pink Floyd left alive and still "in the band" (and only founder member is the drummer), I suppose a downturn in touring activity can be somewhat excused.
That said, new* album comes out next month. Who knows, perhaps Gilmour and Mason might take the old show back on the road one last time.
*How new it is remains to be seen.
"Cubrilovic has examined degenerate nude selfie and revenge porn networks"
Purely for research purposes, of course.
Re: Apps that exhibit bugs will be rejected
Their vetting process is inconsistent and apparently arbitrary.
I had an app accepted with a bug that meant it required an immediate update just to be usable.
I also had version 1.0.0 of an app, made for a specific company (and dripping in that company's livery), accepted to the general app store. Six weeks later, version 1.0.1, which looked identical but had slightly improved functionality was rejected because it was for a specific company. It was subsequently accepted in the business to business app store, whilst version 1.0.0 was still on the general app store.
I stopped working on iOS apps in February but for the year and a half that I did it there was a catalogue of such inconsistencies. Not a lot the developer can do other than submit, accept any reasons for rejection and fix them, even if they didn't matter last time and probably won't matter next time.
We wouldn’t stand idly by if paintings worth hundreds of millions of pounds were being stolen from the National Gallery. Copyright infringement is theft, pure and simple.
Not this awful analogy again - if a painting is stolen from the National Gallery, it is completely removed from the National Gallery and the National Gallery can no longer use it.
If they really want success in tackling copyright infringement and more respect for their efforts, they should try being a bit more honest about it.

About time we had something to help us clean up these bloody robots.
Can hardly move for the buggers.
There really is little point upgrading from, say, an iPad 3 to an Air, because apart from a fairly hefty performance hike, they pretty much do all the same things.
Except, perhaps, if your reason for upgrading is that you want a fairly hefty performance hike?

Re: titles are misleading
if I used Sino, it would have fouled up my trigonometry pun.
Bravo, I say. More power to your punnery (especially "tan Windows" - raised a Scottish vernacular smile) and have a virtual ale.
Outstanding bit of boffinry
And may their lander land
In the manner they planned
Best of luck chaps.

Re: why is anything in such an investigation "classified"?
Indeed, this only fuels paranoia and conspiracy theories.
The omni-shambles of the Lockerbie investigation being a case in point where public trust in the authorities concerned was completely abused and subsequently lost.
Re: Atheism is a bona fide religion...
In the same way that bald is a bona fide hair-style.
the weekend will commence around British Friday lunchtime
Sounds about right.
Glad that's settled.
Just waiting for Liveleak to publish the video.
From the article:
However, the footage is still available for viewing on LiveLeak, where it has been viewed more than 5,000 times.
London gigs, which will be the singer's first live tour in 35 years.
Except that playing the same venue every single night doesn't really qualify as a tour.
(Am I just bitter that she isn't travelling nearer to me? Perhaps a smidgen.)
