Well I was contemplating getting a new 40" TV for around 600 quid but you've managed to make me feel cheap after seeing these rich man's playthings. Don't think I'll bother now - back to my old set. :o(
Re: All that's needed to make it perfect
"..apart from a better screen, processor etc, is for the tubular part top open, revealing space for a set of AA batteries a la Psion S5."
I saw this tablet on QVC a week or so ago (I know, I know.... :( ) and according to them, that tubular part does contain the batteries hence the average 10 hour use.
Ha! I spit on it.
Old Mrs. Hunt had a rough cut punt
Not a punt cut rough
But a rough cut punt.
YORP is a bit rubbish isn't it ? They had enough for PYRO, though even PORY might have been preferable...
Ropy is better still, just like the speculations on what this phenomena is.
"I would suspect fact Israel is in Asia might have something to do with not being in the European trade group. You kind of have to draw a line somewhere in groups like that and being from a different continent is a convenient boundary to use."
They still manage to take part in the Eurovision Song contest though.......
a Herr raising experience
'Fanny Schlatter', you just couldn't make a name like that up could you!
Not as good as Fanny Chmelar
I take it that ......
.... they don't teach Greek mythology in China otherwise Chen may have known the story of the wooden horse of Troy.
Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes and all that.
Re: phrase of the day
"dropping tables like a epileptic removals man
I like it :-)"
As do I, a very cromulent expression.
Good word - had to Google it though.
Crepuscular - pertaining to, or resembling twilight; dim; indistinct.
Always new that reading theRegister was an education.

"I'm not a porn aficionado, but that's one hell of a slippery slope ..."
As the actress said to the bishop.
"I've not seen any office software that floats my boat."
Have a look at Kingsoft Office from Google Play - not too bad, and also free.

Oh dear..... how sad..... what a pity........ never mind.

"... London, Bangkok and New York, Shanghai and Mumbai will be among a number of cities which will eventually end up below sea level ..."
And this is a bad thing?

"I then retrieved from between Christie's buttock, two clear baggies containing a large amount of a crystal substance."
Was it crack?
Re: Kawaii desu!
That is all.
.....Ison was shaping up to be "potentially spectacular"
Even more spectacular when it lands in the Pacific.
"Does Psy get a cut of the proceeds or will Google pocket the lot of it?"
Dunno - I'm not Psy-chic
Re: Pics or it didn't happen
Fuck me, I almost suffocated and all I did was look at the photos.
Drinking too much coffee can MAKE YOU BLIND
What are the effects if you're drinking coffee and having a wank at the same time - do you go blind twice as quick?
"Great! So the whole of coast of Essex and Norfolk will be OK while the rest us rush down to JJB Sports to get our trunks and water wings sorted!"
You'd best get a move on then JJB are going tits up.
Re: ACTIVATING REALITY DISTORTION FIELD...
"There's nothing wrong with the way Apple Maps represents the world. You're just looking at the world in the wrong way."
Didn't think iPhone users needed maps, I assumed they just blindly follow everyone else.
If it wasn't for us `oldies`.....
......none of this technology would be available in the first place - a point I'm forced to make to the grand-kids once in a while when they get stroppy.
Let me get this straight. He damaged his helmet when playing with his balls?
Well, one thing at least....
The photos of Chinese model Li Ling in her see-through underwear have dispelled one myth. They don't go sideways after all.
It's a trap I tells yer....
The more people who get on line, the easier it is to keep track on everybody.
My aren't we posh then using a finger for handwriting searches, I suppose you wear lingerie too don't you? Google voice search not good enough for you now eh? Well let me tell you. When I were a lad, if you wanted to search for summat, you got your arse down to the local library and bleedin well looked for it in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Kids today, they don't know they're born.
Re: not sure what your on
No need to lie - during certain hours 8PM - 12AM usually, it slows down big style - I check it from time to time with Broadband Speed checker web-site. Normal surfing isn't affected but downloads and my Usenet connection is. Most other times it's acceptable but never the 10Mb I pay for.
" Virgin customer with traffic management applying during peak times could theoretically download 87 GB of data over a 24-hour period"
Theoretically maybe. In real life total bollocks - on my 10Mb connection downloads and general surfing slows down to a crawl between certain hours. I'm lucky to get 1.5Mb most days.
Re: Ye Typo
"But nonetheless, those of us who grew up in t'north some years ago still use thee and thou, thy and thine... and also occasionally the old 'st' endings: dost thou? Canst thou?
"Don't thee thou me lad; I'll tell thee when thee can thou me!""
Aye lad, you tell 'em. I use all of those (old Yorkshire fart that I am) as well as hast (has thou - have you).

Noticed that he called himself `Dillo` in his apology post - shouldn't that be dildo?
Re: Help ma Boab!
Yes I know, that's why I said IMAGINE that in a Glasgow accent - management speak is bad enough on it's own but Glasgow Gorbals Gobbledygook? Good grief.
Help ma Boab!
"It [mobile phone solution] allowed the council to try the concept of a mobile solution and demonstrate some frontline benefits, but it requires a larger back office support to run with back office staff taking verbal information from the operative and inputting into back office systems," Allan Barclay, service manager for building services at Fife, told Guardian Government Computing.
"The full solution would capture data inputted direct from the frontline device capturing job info and time management and removing the need for manual involvement."
They even speak management shite in Bonny Scotland - if that crock of shit isn't bad enough, imagine it in a Glaswegian accent.
@sharing is stealing
Pity you think like that, I was going to offer you half of my ham sandwich - don't think I'll bother now.
What sort of sadistic twisted mind comes up with an idea like The Phantom Menace: The Musical ?
Was he/she dropped on their head as a baby? Did they suffer abuse and bullying in childhood? Whatever it was, I've never in all my years, countenanced such diabolical evil as this.
Justin Bieber as Aniken Skywalker? Oh, the humanity!
Re: Escape from the Isle of Man
Or..... as an alternative, give them all a back-pack apiece containing a map and some sort of weapon and set them off against each other Battle Royale style.

Re: @Blubster. Time for a finger up the bum?
That made my eyes water. :o)
Re: Best way to get to sleep...
"Good shout, but think I'd need more material than 30 minutes each week, on a 6 week on/off cycle that the News Quiz operates on..."
That's why I have around 150 downloaded podcasts of The News Quiz and the Now Show stored on the MP3 player.
Yeah, I know... I'm a sad bastard but at least not a sad bastard with insomnia. :)
Best way to get to sleep...
1 - cheap MP3 player with in-ear bud type earphones.
2 - load said player with talk type programs (I use News Quiz podcasts)
3 - play chosen program with MP3 player set to turn off automatically after 30 minutes
4 - close eyes and nod off
5 - get up for piss around 5:00AM
6 - repeat steps 3 and 4

"instant coffee is disgusting, stick to tea ... saying that, tassimo is not that good, where is Nespresso ??? far superior coffee, and no plastic (the Nespresso tubs recycle far better)"
Pfftt! I spit on them all.... you can't beat a bean to cup coffee machine and medium/dark roast LaVazza coffee beans.
"There are plenty of people funding research into diseases such as Bill Gates"
What? There's a disease called Bill Gates?

I love the sound of deskbound middle-aged virgins complaining about the actress they'll be masturbating over later in the year.
The Doctor's new cumpanion?
You bastard . You're talking about the woman I love :o)
We need more tits...
Do we know this woman is still a virgin because she's got Ed Zachary disease? i.e. Her face is Ed Zachary like her arse.
