You STILL cant give this stuff away??!!
We need a piccy of a Funeral car with a "Got Wood" sticker on the back.
I am sure Aldi or Lidl will have an internet service up and running any day.
(Not a real Penguin, but something identical at half the price).
NHS systems CAN give a CLI if it is needed, sadly though, even when it is written in your notes that a call wont go through without a CLI, they still try to call you without one - and get blocked.
I had nearly a dozen reminder calls blocked for one single appointment because nobody could be arsed to read the note and act on it.
HIGHEST, after declaring it shorter than they thought, they then measured the others and found THEY were all shorter as well; putting Everest back on top.
Who votes vegetable??
I think you mean someone who votes Green.
You beat me to it.
EE Smith was a great writer, however, by the time I was 9 he was seeming a bit simplistic and by age 10 I regarded him little better than the Commando comics my younger brother reads (yes - over 40 and still reads them).
I would love to go, but I already have commitments for that date that I cannot get out of (now - last week it would have been different).
Ré Simon Weston, he is a hero because of what he has overcome. There are lots of reasons he got injured - lack of suitable military investment over many years being the biggest.
To this day the RN is stuck with an area AA missile system that cannot effectively engage even an obsolete missile like the Exocet; against a modern AS missile, they would have more chance of stopping an attack by throwing fruit at it.
after all, it was only an iPad.
Troll - obviously.
I suppose it is possible that they DONT have £50 left to pay him back with.
[waiting until the photons and dust can be removed by laser equipped space sharks at the pointy end of the ship.]
(waits for someone to point out the flaw).
I predict one will be on sale as a home in London by the summer - asking price?? ~£150,000
I wonder at the longevity of the tiny turbo boosted engines everyone is slapping into big cars these days; especially a 1.6D like this.
For the record, my sister drives this model, and although she keeps crowing about the mpg, even she admits it isnt that fast - and this from someone who has been driving a 2litre TDI Shalgambra for the last 6 years.
Baidu is one of the default webpages on the Chinese language version of Windows, so is installed and used by millions of Chinese ethnic people around the world.
My wife has been trying to force her copy to use Google.co.uk, so she can make local searches, but it keeps going back to .cn alternatives.
To this day I am unsure if the cheap - "Chinese only" versions of WinXP, Vista and Win7, are a genuine Microsoft product or a Chinese government project to help control of their own population (I bought SWMBO WinXP and Win7 disks for £1 each in 2010)
Likewise, the locals are told to use the 360 browser because it is safer - it is a malware loaded POS - basically a clone of IE with Chinese government spyware included.
How long before Iceland is selling horsemeat under the "MammothBurger" name??
I said this to my boss once.
I just wish someone had warned me he had spent 18 months locked in a padded room a few years before.
(NOT a Joke Alert)
Win10 is going to make Win8 look good.
(Icon for old codger STILL using XP)
Perhaps they should also rename IE - so the name reflects ITS features.
I suggest "Arthritic Sloth"
Just the names and locations changed.
As for long, boring reads with interesting titles, Try "The Fishing Fleet - Husband Hunting in the Raj"
Not one of them gets bagged and displayed as a trophy on the wall.
Not only no IT angle, but old news, all the main news sites covered this story nearly a week ago.
BTW, "Watched Five Children and IT" with my daughter yesterday; REALLY upset at the complete lack of IT equipment; what were they thinking of when coming up with the title??
I used to have a job taking care of a distribution warehouse system running on a 100A board - over rated to 300A.
The feed cable used to regularly burn the paint off of the wall.
But everybody already knows that.
Barbie doesnt need to give an intelligent answer; I mean who REALLY pays attention to what someone is actually saying if they are a pretty blonde with big t1ts???
PAris, cos there are rumours she cant count beyond 10 without taking her shoes and socks off.
Just counting to four in binary.
Running the latest version of uTorrent and no sign of Epic Scale on my system - most disappointed.
Thanks to previous posters for offering alternatives, I have recently become hacked off by all the adverts and flashy cr@p spoiling my experiences. Sadly this happens to all good freeware eventually, free-good, free-OK, free-flashy-crappy-ads-everywhere.
Yes we do.
What happened to Red????
Yorkshire tea USED to be my favourite tipple before I discovered red tea.
PS, I think the megaphone should be replaced by a Brian Blessed icon!
That would be tea from India or China would it??
SO it wasnt a Panasonic Toughbook
Forgot they were dealing with people outside of China that is.
If you look at Chinese software, it is packed with bloatware and Chinese government spyware; dont believe me? Go download and compare the QQ International and Chinese language versions; the Chinese version comes loaded with so much crap it BROKE the brand new budget PC it was loaded on; the PC slowed down to the speed on a P50 running Vista until many arduous hours were spent manually removing all of the crap that was installed alongside the QQ IM program.
(Hours because of how slow the PC became, running at normal speeds it would have taken minutes!!)
All my childhood heroes are dead or dying.
Farewell Leonard, good luck on the last great adventure.
Downvoters are obviously too young to know this is a quote from the same comedy sketch Blowhard quoted further up this thread. (NTNOCN)
If switching to a CA system, will this mean I can watch Dr Who on iPlayer when I am in China, and not have to BT it a few days later??
(The "D'oh" is for people not knowing classic comedy when it is quoted at them).
Is WordPress the New Microsoft??
I found some Italian built light boxes in a photo studio where the earth was terminated at a 6mm brass stud.
Sadly, the stud was mounted on hardboard, offering no protection for the rest of the metal light box!!
Also, (to save money) a G.U.S warehouse had its picking cranes wired up with single phase isolators, despite using 2 phases to provide the power to the crane controls.
A foreman found this out the hard way after isolating the cab and sticking his hand into a faulty heater. From then on, his nickname was Scorch.
to chip maskers as well, I cannot update my Umi Zero to Lollypop because the people behind the new octacore cpu wont release the details required, so the phone makers are stuck.
BTW, this talks about the default Android email app.... can I therefore assume that if I only use the Gmail app I will be OK??
All these cookies are the REAL reason they are getting so FAT!!
OK, so it is a joke, but I can only choose one icon.
Amazing, but true; a woman I went to meet from an internet dating site was showing VERY little interest in me until two cuties smiled at me; she them clung on to my arm with a death grip for the next hour.
Still didnt work out though, partly because I found out she was a closet smoker.
I can guarantee you will gets lots of interest if you sign up to one of the many "Anastasia" websites; even just entering your name (no photo), will be enough to generate 10-15 letters of interest per week -
Of course on "Anastasia" sites you have to PAY to open the letters sent to you - but they wouldnt be dishonest and pay women to write to you .... would they??
For those that dont know, a "babushka" is a wrinkled old grandma.
Worst case?? I think that depends on if the ladies in Question are Belarusian babushkas or not; in that event, not even peanut butter and whips will save the day.
Now if it was Paris or Taylor Swift mind you........
Perhaps it is time for the Paris icon to be retired - and replaced with a T.S. one.
Paris - because the cat is already out of the bag on ITAUGHTPARISHILTONTOGIVEHEAD.COM
(seem the film and read the book).
Have the scientists finally read "Lucifer's Hammer" ??
I am worried someone might try these cables on a Dell - and invalidate their warranty.
I thought this only worked for spherical cats in a vacuum??
Besides, the cat is dead, I mean exactly how long ago did Shrodinger PUT the cat in the box, and what is the maximum lifespan for a cat??
Paris, my favourite box AND pussy - all rolled into one.
Nice idea, but I dont like spending stupid money on tinny sounding speakers for each room, I prefer a giant pair of BRIAN BLESSED's to BLAST THE MUSIC OUT!!!!
My old neighbours were stone deaf, the current ones arent (yet).
This is fairly ancient, but back in the early nouties, the BBC were running a competition for under 12's.
My son (age 6 at the time), entered using my email and home address
THE ONE AND ONLY TIME THE TWO HAVE BEEN LINKED WITH HIS NAME.
(He lived with his mother).
Within weeks I started getting spam email and waste paper through the letterbox in his name - offering him credit cards, test drives of new sports cars etc.
I hope the IT manager doesnt accidentally walk into them 20 or 30 times.........
Every time I tried to switch back to Google, I got a security warning pop-up; clicking either YES or No had the same result - Yahoo back as the default - NOT HAPPY.
I had to go digging around, and even now I am not 100% certain I have gotten rid of the moronic Yahoo option.
You know the fixing goes on both ways. I have been trying to send some baby stuff out to a relative in China, if I use the UK ParcelForce website it will cost me over £130 for about 7KG; if I use a CHINESE parcel company associated with ParcelForce it costs me under £30.
That is a LOT more than VAT can account for.
Same depot, same staff, same delivery time - go figure.
I get security alerts for Gmail 3-4 time per week when trying to log in via Thunderbird, and this week it kept throwing password errors - before admitting it was blocking TB for being an insecure program!!
