You missed a couple of extra verys there.
Seems good to me. My question is, will you have to spend out that much every time a bulb goes?
Same with me, Gerry.
You go to starbucks for your 'coffee'? I want you stand in the corner and think long and hard about what you're doing.
Just to be clear, is the missing word fuck?
'Apples' hardware manufacturers make nice hardware'
Making room for Nex 7 phone?
Do you mean as in, 'The server division know they are not very good?', or 'They are very clued up?'
Can you have bacon with it?
Did somebody get paid actual money to write this?
A dead, decomposed blind person with a dead, decomposed guide dog could have seen this coming.
Splitting hairs here, but I always thought FUD was fear, uncertainty and disinformation.
My present budget for this year will go to the company who avoids playing moronic xmas music over their tannoy.
Does this mean going to be a good period to to stick with HDSPA/3g, in as much as there will be less and less contention on the same infrastructure?
I was broadly in agreement with you until this:
'This is the point at which you should be thinking of Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard doing the facepalm.'
Don't you dare tell me what I should be thinking, I can work it out for myself.
Have to give that a try tomorrow evening.
If you're going to do this type of competition, might I suggest a years supply of coffee as the prize next time?
A 40' container load should do the job (Just).
'they took away our mail servers and promised a product and the product did not deliver'
The problem here is that it did deliver.
So they have the london/amsterdam/frankfurt internet exchanges.
Could they do something similar for beer?
Or just buy a Nexus 5...
Very simple question. Who (cafe/restaurant) does the best bacon sarnie in London?
For this purpose, London counts as anywhere within the M25.
Please post a google maps link.
This is the main reason reason I read the reg. These sort of articles, for me, are really illuminating.
Programmable Recorder Indicating Oncoming Rowans and Yews

Yes, i'll get me coat.
'The only compatible format is paper.'
You've clearly never seen my handwriting.
In this case, don't you mean <essex>sofisticaa'ed</essex>
'The BBC has stayed silent about the continuing glitches. It's been nearly 12 hours since Auntie updated its users about the outage.'
Good. Hopefully that means they're concentrating on fixing the issue(s) rather than web2.0rrea.
Forgot the sarcasm tags. Sorry.
'Exactly, so if the government insist on the right to snoop, then they must bear ALL the costs of keeping data beyond the very limited time period that the ISPs may need it'
So by extension, *we* must bear all the cost of allowing our glorious leaders to poke their noses in where it's not required or warranted.
I like this!!
Fair points. Wasn't being facaetious. At least not intentionally.
Never quite got the point of charging pads. Is it that much more difficult to plug it in?
Assuming you mean 100 yds. There is a way round that of sorts, in that if you're fairly near a big town, you can get a PAYG sim from $provider_with_mast_in_area.
Would there be a market for a non-network provider to build masts in these hard-to-reach areas, then charge network providers for use?
'Many thanks to the gentle readers who wished me well over the last couple of weeks'
By that I assume you mean commentards who were slightly less abusive than normal?
I think you've answered your own question there.
'A huge amount of trivial human labour....So while it clearly makes sense to have robots doing deliveries...'
Maybe true, but the examples you cite are relatively difficult for Robots to do. Authentication of people can be relatively tricky, depending on the method used. Also how would a robot identify who an 'appropriate' neighbour is, if you're out?
Fnar Fnar Fnar!!
What time do you technically finish? Can you get $takeaway_of_choice to deliver at $:01?
Asset systems :|
A room full of $100 dollar bills to be able to get women to roll around naked with him.
I've tended to find that the quality (is that the right term here?) of customer service tends to be inversely proportional to the size of the company.
I can understand that to some degree. Given the humongous user base that microsoft has, for example, it would be impossible for them to provide support for every conceivable issue and use case.
Maybe some kind of customer service SLA could be in order when you sign up for things.
Hence uncomfortable headlines from the likes of the Daily Mail: Eating organic foods does NOTHING to reduce the cancer risk among women, says new study.
That bastion of high quality and truthful reporting said THAT? I'll never eat anything organic ever again.
Maybe, but bacon and brown sauce trumps all.
Yes, but to make it uber-trendy, you need to say is with a hard G, as in bonging.
'Apple replaced mine for about £45. Not bad to keep a two and a half year old phone going.'
Not taking the mickey here, but considering, for example, that you can get an HTC cell for about 6 quid and replace it yourself, it's not particularly good either.
