Re: "Walking Street"
I suspect he was wondering if the "l" should have been an "n" ;-)
Speaking of which... any news on the F(ing)AA front?
Borked again Reg?
Seems like 1/2 ah hour of TITSUP, so far this morning, at mason Reg. Unfortunate timing on this occasion too.
Any idea what the problem is chaps? This appalling reliability smells like "cloud" to me... I don't remember this sort of crap happening in the good old days.
"US gov trots out yet another disingenuous fucktard to blatantly lie at us."
...while pontificating about honesty, no less!
Mmmm... How I love the smell of hypocrisy disguised as condescension, spewing forth from a politician.

"We are making strong progress across each of our three ambitions by delivering innovation people love" riddled CEO Satya Nadella
What I was left wondering is "do the innovation people (who/whatever they are) want Nads' love?"
Maybe it has something to do with Mad_Max's comment about eating a big bag of dicks?

I wonder, is "Skarp" an intentional evocation of scam and crap or something Freudian?
I imagine they were alluding to sandboxing the little turd.
I happily offer to lend them my cat, should they need inspiration for an appropriate approach.
Re: Any 3-eyed fish, six-legged deer or carniverous, sabre-toothed elk?
Couldn't even get the two excerpts you selected to contradict one another? They don't in the slightest.
Of course populations of wildlife will encroach on the contaminated area... and the consequences are, of course, horrific. Go for a wander around your "park" of three headed snakes and legless deer and (perhaps) you'll understand.
I'm a supporter of the contra-carbophobe pieces - the mindless modern mainstream edutainment seems abjectly incapable of scientific reporting and has instead, almost without exception, obediently toed the governmental lines. Balance desperately needed. This shit, however, is perverse. What are you on? Some sort of arbitrary all-environmental-damage-is-imaginary crusade? Mescaline? Jesus Lewis! Bulk dissemination of free radioisotopes into the environment is bad, mmmkay? If you can come up with evidence, or even a reasonable argument, to the contrary I'd be interested to read it. That thing you just published wasn't one. It didn't seem to be anything more than a failure to notice that two quotations don't contradict one-another with a dollop of rhetoric on top. As for "56 deaths" - WTF? Mescaline again? Perhaps you might read something on the subject - I might suggest a quick Google of Mr Henry Marsh CBE FRCS, a decent bloke, and his work in Ukraine* to begin.
Bad Lewis. Done yourself something of a disservice I fear.
*I'll leave figuring out the significance of that country as an exercise for the reader.
It's not the portions you need to control: That's a lie from the obesity industry to keep you hooked for the rest of your pathetic wobbling, puffing and lucrative little life. McDonalds, Weightwatchers (which insists on tricking fatties into replacing essential lipids with addictive, worthless sugars. Read the ingredients not the lobbying information) , USDA, etc..
It's the content you must control. Completely eliminate, exclude and banish all grain (inc. maize) derivatives, sweeteners and, until you're back on track, spuds. Then carry on eating all you want. You'll be fine. You'll soon find there's a cornucopia of delicious stuff to eat that ISN'T cheap addictive shit pushed by a predatory industry.

Very well as I recall.
It was MS&XP that killed the netbook. Some say intentionally.
Interesting how worked up this thread seems to have got you AC... With this and the following five AC splaffs fired off in such rapid succession and in such similar tone.
Something to declare?
Re: A big rat flings itself from the s(t)inking ship
Superbly smug & sneery snap. Why can't our Reg manage something like that?
Not so sure about the rigorousness of the Aussie's copy though. Spotted a couple of glaring factual errors in that caption alone:
Founded in 2002, Ashley Madison, the world's biggest online
dating fraud website for married men and women, has had over 20 million users victims in 30 regions all over the world. (Reuters: Bobby Yip)

Any chance of a mugshot of the good man himself for the "hero [sic] pic" in these AM/ALM articles Reg?
OK Ledswinger, I'l bite...
"And with the Reg, half the value is from the joy of being an unpaid member of the Commentariat. If they think I'm paying for the privilege of writing and reading stuff like this, they've got another think coming."
So, if you refuse to pay for things that bring you joy, what DO you pay for?...
(moot curiosity: upvoted regardless)
Re: Poor choice of words?
Re: Poor choice of words?
Correct choice of words. Not meaning to get in the way of a good frog bashing... but... Other phobias, anxiety disorders, etc are all recognised and treated appropriately so I don't see any reason why "EMSS" should be excluded from that. Something being intangible or irrational really isn't grounds to deny study or treatment.
Re: "... then complaining when telesales phone them up. Idiots."
"The few I receive get the long weight treatment."
You beat them with a plumb-bob "Dr Syntax"?
Re: It's meant to be a joke, FFS!
Because it wasn't funny?
You seem to be assuming that the rash of crude opportunist extortion is being perpetrated by the original leaker(s). I very much doubt that. I imagine that if they have anything left to do it'll be very carefully planned and precisely targeted, and quietly executed under the generous cover of this recently incited flailing frenzy...
Nope. Not since "we" introduced NZ flatworms, anyway.
Re: Cheap phone buying advice needed
Some idea of your daughter's idea of "cheap" would be helpful. Along with any specific requirements like radio speed and band coverage.
I'd always favour (new) old stock over s/h old stock for this sort of stuff and probably be looking at things like these:
US$160 Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 http://www.ebay.com/itm/261974415727
US$210 Note 2 GT-N7100 http://www.ebay.com/itm/252032497383
US$310 Note 3 GT-N9005 http://www.ebay.com/itm/331609748395
Re: No removable battery, no SD-memory ...
I wonder what the S7 and Note6 won't have. Microphones?
It's politics Reg
Not that the US government feels it has done much wrong: former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice recently said, within The Reg's earshot, that ”the rules” mean the USA is allowed to spy in the name of freedom and democracy but China isn't allowed to.
Um, quite the contrary. The fact that top US politicians are scuttling about spewing ridiculous excuses and rhetoric proves that in fact they do fully understand that they've put themselves on a rather sticky wicket.
