That's only the second biggest
The biggest: Oprah, Beyonce, Lindsay. One of these names is not like the other.
Would that be all right then ?
Yes, it's a safe limit. As long as you're under the limit you're safe.
Do you throw out your food the day before the use by date?
Can't wait. </sarcasm>
in the absence of VOIP, the only way you'll be hearing your neighbour's conversations is if you lean over their shoulder and read them yourself. And then you'll get both sides. Or if someone in the carriage talks to someone else in the carriage. Never been on the Underground - is that verboten?
but without a full set of ports on the keyboard section and pc compatiblity it fails at being a netbook replacement. That and the price.
C- Asus, we know you can do better.
Just call Fitzcarraldo - has to be easier on the way down.
Don't you mean Nonageddon
no need to be sexist.
Face it, Graham
If your storeroom was robbed it'd be in bootnotes the next day.
"The heat causes the water to shift from a liquid to a gas"
Interesting - someone should coin a word for that process.
This truly scares the shit out of me.
Otherwise known as
I can't get on der internet* - there's no blue 'e'.
*or das elektronischübahn or whatever.
"Not going to go away"
They said that about Myspace.
And probably about Geocities.
And probably about the Roman Empire etc. etc. etc.
Facebook will "go away" when people get tired of it and decide they like something else better.
True to the show?
I didn't watch it much but I'm pretty sure Adama wasn't made out of bronze.
Just as well
with an SE they wouldn't even let you in the front door.
Yes, of course that's what they are 'saying'
What there saying, however, may be a little different.
I suspect the author's reading skills are a little better than yours.
Please: Gary Larson had about three jokes* recycled endlessly. Randall Monroe on the other hand manages to think up at least three new jokes each week.
*Wouldn't it be funny if animals were doing this,wouldn't it be funny if cavemen were doing this and the other one.
You're not the only one
to be reminded of Quake 2. That badly cooked lasagne lava looks very familiar.
Or, indeed, the luckiest
because, presumably, having chosen to marry Julie Burchill would mean you were some weird kind of masochist able to find pleasure in just about anything.
Whatever you do please don't tell anyone about this: http://www.cracked.com/article_17416_the-7-most-bizarrely-unlucky-people-who-ever-lived.html
If it gets out the author will spend the rest of his life apologising.
Stupid complaint. Stupid apology.
last time I used a phonebook was to replace a broken castor on a swivel chair. Tough buggers but unfortunately not much good against sheer forces.
is what astronauts do best.
The trick is , of course, to miss the ground.
If I use Google I will find a thousand different brands of lunacy - you need to specify which one you're selling.
I'll agree to your comparison
the day I get the chance to vote the chairman of Telstra* out of office.
*for non Australian readers replace with the name of your least favourite company.
Not here in Oz
We can multi-task!

Oddly enough, Tim
there are "asinine" people who do just that. Not the rental bit, of course, since you're not likely to find one at your local Hertz but a small genset trailer kept in the back or the garage makes a lot of sense.
You write a cheque, you make a press release, your donation appears in the published list. Corollary: you earn goodwill or rather that goodwill is freely given in return. If on the other hand you make your generosity a part of a marketing scheme people will perceive your efforts as manipulative and in the context of a situation of ongoing death and suffering that clearly crosses a line.
So there's really no mysterious hidden rules - just common sense and a bit of basic human sensitivity.
she's not, conversely, a flower arranger; she's a scientist and the computer is a tool of her trade. Now, I don't want to be too hard on her individually - It's easy enough to treat backups as "not a priority" - but I seriously wonder at the institutional culture that allows this sort of thing to happen.
I think you'll find Lewis' official reaction to the J-20 is
a bit too much glass for a destroyer. (Unless there's a conning tower hidden away in there somewhere.) I was thinking more along the lines of lighthouse resupply vessel. Definitely will not be appearing in the next Bond flick.
And one has suceeded
Already been done.
OK, not strictly open source, but hell, this is a highly realistic simulator that is the work of one man. Imagine what a open source project could do.
we need a sarcasm icon.
From the second link
"extremely precise dacs can be very unforgiving and too-controlled sounding, while other dacs can be extremely musical."
<sarcasm>Yeah, and my arse can be extremely musical too.</sarcasm>
still read "Dilbert?
Does she have hairy feet or something?
Why wouldn't they
Anything to save a few bucks.
On a less cynical note I was glad to see that my Pixi came with a micro USB cable, a tiny mains charger, and nothing else. If I want Useless junk I can buy it later on eBay.
I don't think it's sata
the pins are all the same length. It looks suspiciously lke the ssd in my netbook - sata in a mini pcie physical connector - but if Intel has any sense it will be real pcie.
You could do worse than look at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kstH-8jwa80 (Dalai Lama vs the Pope by John Safran for those who've already seen it) before deciding that the Dalai Lama is left wing.
@ Chris Miller - Pseudo-hereditary aristocratic seems about right. I've long thought of the Dalai Lama as a sort of Tibetan Price Charles - well intentioned but in way over his head and sinking deeper because no one dares tell him his ideas are a mish-mash of half-thought out wishful thinking.
Well I believe there's a good one
called "How to Recognise Different Types of Trees From Quite a Long Way Away" but I doubt you'd be interested in that either.
The subject may be 'bollocks' but that says nothing about the quality of the film.
Someone should make a film about Elron's naval career - It would make McHales Navy look like Das Boot.
described Anonymous as a group of "mask-wearing subversive and anarchistic internet denizens"
Anonymous described Anonymous as a group of "mask-wearing subversive and anarchistic internet denizens and totally not a bunch script kiddies with no social skills and delusions of importance yeah that dude".
Yes it is
Just with extra obfuscation (and possibly self-deception).
They just increase the camera separation
Of course that makes everything look like toys - and a ten inch tyrannosaurus, for example ,isn't exactly scary - but, hey, you can't have everything.
Don't know about "Trios"
but everyone in the US Ballet Force should definitely be issued with a Pixi.
Indecent time exposure?
- considering it was after dark.
or someone who knows what Poe's law* is. I hate the joke icon but some times it's needed
*strictly Poe's corollary: if the parody is indistinguishable from the real thing then the real thing is indistinguishable from the parody.
Actually it was a matter of size
VHS tapes were longer than Beta's so nothing at all to do with porn!
Even as we speak an invitation is on its way to the Waspians to join the cartel. If you've got diamonds De Beers will assimilate you.
A perfectly good pizza?
I thought w'ed established it was a Domino's.
