Stop spam-reporting Trevor just because you disagree with him. Prolific offenders will find themselves on the naughty step.
Re: Re: I had to Google how to find the Control Panel...
Use your middle finger, duh.
(yeah, it's a slow afternoon)
N64 analogue frequency
Just hooked up my old N64 to my digital tellybox. For the benefit of anyone else trying to tune it in, the 64 "broadcasts" on 591MHz.
Problem is, the sound is just white noise. I've done the time-honoured thing of pulling and blowing on all the cables and that hasn't fixed it. Last time I used this RF cable a year ago it worked fine, and it's been stored coiled - not knotted.
Come to the pub and enjoy a beverage with us. If you can't work out where and when Vulture Central enjoy a bevvy, odds are you're possibly not suited to El Reg for a variety of reasons.
Re: Reinvented cuckoo clock
It almost definitely is, but without knowing for sure it's a bit presumptuous for us to say so.
Re: Re: Guilt by Coincidence
Tis true. Cressida Dick is now a Commander (deputy chief constable equivalent) in the Met. She was in charge of de Menezes' manslaughter.
I still find it incredible that no armed policeman has ever been brought to trial after killing someone on duty.
Re: What is the solution?
There's a sideways thought - reset your password every single time you use a service, and use one of those password-generating sites to come up with a dictionary-proof password each time.
Bit cumbersome, mind.
For make glorious Revolutionary courts, comrade!
Re: Re: reason d'etre ...
Trevor's behaviour on the site led us to ban him...
In fairness to Jasper I have to cough to pointing him to the Pornhub story, which I encountered while pulling the strings behind @TheRegister - which, by the way, is the best thing going on Twitter and you should all follow it.
I've only let this comment through the net to point out that we're reporting the study. Readers are smart enough to find for themselves who commissioned the study - as you've just done. So congrats, have a cigar.
Re: Re: Commentards
If we're playing commentard rank poker, I'll stick with my little red vulture. ;-)
Re: Re: Faking accounting,evading taxes..more marketing bull.
Or to the notice of your local friendly mod, who shitcans his libellous tinfoil hattery.
Re: Don't understand
Tends to help if you don't insult El Reg when commenting. You're a guest in our house, remember - we reserve the right to hoik you out if you upset us.
Re: Are you guys rush fans?
Aye. I am anyway, dunno about the rest of Vulture Central. 2112 is one of the best concept albums (well, as far as you can really call it that) of all time imho.
Re: You can still be anonymous
Last time I tried to register a new Gmail account for exactly that purpose, a month or two ago, it demanded a mobile number. So I didn't bother - and the comment went unposted.
Anonymity? Yeah right.
Re: Re: Self-Censorship
As others have said in this thread, it's because corporate firewalls tend to throw their toys out of the pram if we swear too much.
mod hat on
Play nicely. Hugs and kisses, El Mod.
Re: Re: This article reads like an ad.
He gets so many backhanders he goes undercover and dodges vendors' PRs to find out what's actually going on... see here.
Re: Just switch to NewsBlur
Normally we squash these types of comments, but as you admit it's a shameless plug I'll let it through ... this once. If you do want lots of links to your site, do click here and read on. Ta.
Re: Re: Ooooh Shiny shiny
Try looking at Google News UK edition. Then the US edition. Compare and contrast how many BBC stories you find on each.
Hint - they're not chasing UK audiences.
Oh no, not another tinfoil-hat-wearing loon. Crawl back to the Guardian comments, please, and stop wasting my time.
Re: Dear Mr Censor,
We're clearing them with the NSA's Reg-sniffing snoopers first. You might be a terrorist posting on the Reg, and then we'd have to disappear you.
(ok, actually it's a busy day and we haven't got around to approving lots of comments. Be patient!)
I do that after eating bad curries. Have you tried suppositories?
Re: I've toured the USS Drum
I would absolutely love to have a poke around U-995. The only surviving WW2 vintage Type VIIC U-boat, of the class that fought the Battle of the Atlantic for the bulk of the war.
Note to self, must remind our scribe to make this into a picture feature next time round!
Not over here, chap. Where'd you find it twice?
Re: Re: @ James Micallef
No newspaper is bidding for them. It's a perfect example of a political strawman in action, getting positive headlines for the poor put-upon woman struggling against her youthful, indiscreet past as misogynists pile into her.
Consider this - if there really was a paper or agency bidding for child porn images, they'd have been named long before now. That they haven't tells you all you need to know.
and to add to my last, you seem to have a real fixation with Jews, Israel and America. Nuff said.
*mod hat on*
The reason most of your comments get rejected is because they're simply far too long. Please see the Register Comments Guidelines for more info, paying particular attention to section 8. As soon as we publish anything a commentard says, we become legally liable for it - and we do not have any fulltime mods to devote to this.
Keep it short and to the point or we'll can it because we don't have the time to wade through reams of comment copy, no matter how insightful. Sorry.
mod hat on
Less of the personal abuse, or I shall push a large pile of bricks upon you all from a great height.
mod hat on
and yes, I have deleted/rejected posts from here. Carry on.
Indeed, why would we highlight those things when our ever-trusty commentards will do it for us? ;-)

Re: Mistake in headline.
But EVERYONE knows there's an infinite number of frontiers on the internet!
(good spot, but please use the corrections link to tell us next time!)
Re: Re: Hoovers???
I had a cat called Hoover once. She used to completely clear her food bowl, just like a hoover would have - hence the name.
Re: Re: "None to both"
To "coin" name for something is well-established English usage. Not sure they've conjugated it correctly here, mind. Their words, not El Reg's.
Re: Re: Real men drink real ale
Boots don't (as far as I know) but Wilkinson's do.
Signed, a happy Vulture. Hic!
Re: Is it wise leaving comments open on a live crown court prosecution?
Pre-moderated. Carry on.
Nothing. Nothing at all will cause an uprising, or a revolution, or even a street protest outside the council. Britain has become a nation of people who genuinely believe they have nothing to hide and nothing to fear from government. They really couldn't care more about what happens to their neighbours so long as it doesn't happen to them. We have become East Germany, but without a West Germany to escape to.
Re: Re: Temp data is "adjusted"
Thou shalt not insult Reg writers. Debate the topic, fine, but get personal and expect the banhammer to descend toot sweet. Simples!
Re: per cent
:-) no hard feelings.
Re: Quote: "There has got to be something wrong..."
So you want to ban/heavily restrict firearms ownership, while simultaneously admitting you know it has little or no effect?
Re: Re: per cent
As we've done it approximately 64,800 times before in virtually every article that discusses a percentage, no.
Have a nice day.
Re: Re: per cent
No it isn't. It originates from the original Latin "per centum". Strictly speaking it should be written "per cent.", as in "Big Company X's share price crashed by 300 per cent. last Friday" but the common English usage has evolved away from denoting abbrevs with full stops.
Percent is one of those horrible Americanisms. Not to say Vulture West don't ever use it, mind.
Re: per cent
House style. Tis the same across the entire Register.
Re: Re: Blaming the victim?
I infrequently order pizza online. Whenever I do this, I find myself having to reset various rarely-used banking passwords to order my pizza because those sites are the only time they ever trigger the extra protections.
Learned, my arse, the pizza-denying gits.
Re: Re: Bootnote: It's 2013.
You've clearly confused us Reg staffers with the sort of people who, er, edit Wikipedia regularly. (and then engage in extended bunfights with Wikipedophiles about editing an open-source encyclopedia)
