It's my life!
(and so on....)
I'm confused by all this. I "upgraded" to Windows 10 last night and, despite the fact the installer assured me all files were downloaded, it spent another two hours downloading more guff. My PC apparently didn't have the full 3Gb. Sounds like there's an anomaly somewhere....
That's because the insurers choose to think that careless people use that car park so you are at risk of being hit again.
Or another builder's favourite - "I wish my wife was as dirty as this van"!
Charlotte Leslie in the swimsuit - hubba hubba!
Apparently "the stress of all the attention from the situation caused her to go into early labour". Nothing to do with drinking while pregnant then!
Indeed - it's Rooibos, made from an entirely different plant. These guys do a variety of mixes, if case you want to confuse the hell out of your tastebuds!
Seriously, Andy Tunnah, go XBMC. I barely know anything about Linux, but you can get a image with it ready to install - just select it from the boot menu and off it goes. There's basic configuration of movie sources to do but, basically, it's a POP. If you get a remote control for it, once it's configured it will just work like any other media device once it's powered up. Even my cat could use it ;-)
For example - this is the B+, but this kit has it all for you. You can't go wrong, literally!
I bought B+ recently, to use as a media player. It's a bit sluggish as it is, but you've told me exactly what I need to do to get it working smoothly - thanks. Main delays are list navigation using the remote - keyboard is fine.
But sex.com is worth a bloody fortune, so it can work both ways. I agree with you in the majority though - with Google being so well-known, typing a full URL to find something is a rarity
The police probably didn't reply because, in all honesty, these sort of gadgets are not reliable enough to take at face value. Hampshire Police tweeted something to that effect a couple of weeks ago. They have been tweeting a unit chart instead which says how quickly units of each type and size of drink will take to be clear of your system. I know they err on the side of caution but it is pretty scary. As a rule of thumb go for 1 unit per hour and you should be fine
"The attitude of churlish indifference seems like nerdish deference contrasted with the belligerent antipathy of the indigenous farm folk, who regard the hippie-dippie interlopers, the denizens of the shimmering tit temples, as one fey step away from transvestites."
This is not Russell Brand speak, but a quote from amanfrommars! (Professor icon for obvious reasons)
I was thinking the same thing - two guys come to "fix the computer"... I get ya! Low-brow p0rn0 flick, here we come
I bought my first mobile as soon as getting a job after University. It was one of these bad boys:
It was quite good, from what I remember, although I rarely used it as there weren't that many people I tended to call - plus the call costs were mad!
For another Office alternative try Kingsoft Office. Their version of Access and Visio cost money but the basic products are free, and good!
Do you mean Kif Kroker?
Waist circumference on the bottom would not work. It wouldn't differentiate between tall and thin or short and fat. Perhaps
might be a better starting point?
Agreed. Mechanically it may be a fine timepiece but, damn, it's fugly!
I will confess that I have watched a beheading video before - it was about ten years ago, and I had the link emailed to me. I felt physically sick for 3 days and could barely sleep because I was just seeing it in my mind all the time. I can still visualise it clearly now, and really wish I could "unwatch" it. It was very, very unpleasant to say the least. If you are thinking of going hunting for it then don't - really.
Didn't they also always feature a Fondue Set as well as the "legendary" cuddly toy?
"I am a British voter that was quite content to see the bill passed, if you think I am in some tiny minority then it seems the majority of MPs from all three parties did not."
I might suggest that the party whips and the lack of time might have rather limited the ability and/or interest of MPs to find out what their constituents really thought - apart from the few punters who had the foresight to send the representative an email, of course. I'm pretty confident that the majority who did email their MP were against DRIP
"palate-style"? I think you mean palette-style. Palate refers to the roof of the mouth or sense of taste.
Add to that the fact that many of the decent titles run only 720p or 900p not full 1080p/i and that's why I went and bought a PS4 at the weekend. As a slight aside, finding anywhere with stock is a PITA, but my local Asda came up trumps!
Has Torrent traffic really dropped significantly, or are the Torrent users simply encrypting the streams so it's not detected as such?
Doh! I do, of course, mean convicted!
Sussex Police have also been releasing names of those convinced or at least charged. I guess the ICO will be investigating them soon too.
Whilst I understand what the police forces are trying to do, publicly admonishing people who have not been found guilty by a judge or court must be legally questionable. Perhaps the ICO will name and shame those guilty of releasing this information so if they find the tactic does break data protection?
I have just bought a new PC, for a relative, from a well known supplier with a big red and white web site from their store located on the South Coast. I had the choice of WIndows 7 and Windows 8 and, for ease, I chose Windows 7. So there are ways of keeping Windows but not buying Windows 8
But then he might shoot you, thinking you were a "burglar"
Yes, you're right - I'm going to murder everyone in the office and steal all their stuff, then burn the building down. Just because I broke the law. Did you exceed the speed limit into work today? Yes? Oops! /sarcasm
Really? This is in Bootnotes where anything goes
"How many of the people who are whingeing about the iPhone's fingerprint scanner use a telephone or a tablet via a TOUCHSCREEN?"
Most of them probably, but we know for sure that the iPhone's touchscreen is just that - there is no scanning mechanism built into the earlier iPhone. There may be fingerprints all over my tablet, but I can be confident that they are not going to GCHQ or NSA. With fingerprints being scanned by the 5S we don't know for definite what happens with them, or even if the full image is scanned or just a hash of it. The Apple assertion that the scan (whatever form it is in) doesn't get uploaded to their servers doesn't mean a lot. If they an unequivocal statement saying that it is not uploaded to ANY servers, anywhere in the world, then people like the FSF should be pacified.
It's very ironic, therefore, the logo that appears to be at centre of this report, is in fact "borrowed" from somewhere else
Did she rat them out? I'm sure the Charities Commission would be interested in that
Mythbusters have proven that current won't flow up a urine stream - because it's not a stream, but loads of droplets
I was watching the News last night, about this very subject. They interviewed the mother of April Jones, in tears, saying that this filter could have kept her daughter safe. Whilst she is understandably upset, I see that comment as scare mongering and of no real relevance. Extreme porn is already blocked and, as Mark Bridger is an adult, he could easily unbolck the fiter and then carry on browsing naughty sites (within reason) unhindered.
3fdx and Voodoo - a trip down memory lane. I had an ATI 2D/3D card, with a pair of Voodoo2 12Mb 3D only cards. It was the first device to feature SLI. Now we think nothing of it....
That was version that had the dog that barked and did tricks? I wasted many an hour playing with that dog... happy days!
Google the lady involved and you might change your mind - unless you're a feeder
Exactly what I was going to say - word for word. Have a beer on me!
Certainly not in my area. Blackberries are the phones of choice. iPhones are too common and passée.
"Feed him to the pigs, Errol.... "
... or full stops?
... I only watched the video for the titillation and didn't see any!
And then perform a religious play?
I think the article refers to the cost of a whole office of devices, not a single unit. It's pretty obvious that a single device won't use 14K electricity a year...
Sadly, no - it appears not. Some people really can't read!
I assume that for the 10% they used the word "sex" as an alternative for the actual act of having a *cough* "hand shandy"!
Bodykits, spoilers, speakers, paint and decals are already used to assess risk. It's because of the perceived increased theft/vandalism likelihood, plus the fact that the industry assumes those who have these kinds of modifications are more likely to "drive it like they stole it".
