My clothes don't smell after sitting next to a smoker in the Pub any more. Leave them alone.
Find out what cul-de-sac actually means...
Whenever I see someone blue toothing on a train, I start talking very loudly to whoever is sitting next to me about how silly they look. It never lasts long...
Web sites that insist on a mobile number when I actually don't have one really bug me. Nearly as much as free Wi-Fi that wants to send a code to my non existent mobile. Or perhaps I'm using free Wi-Fi because my mobile has died.
Prodigal means wasteful, not one who returns. Or was he both?
If the cameras are as rubbish as their bar code scanners then they'll probably think I'm Darth Vader.
log the cat in....
Then let it play with the mouse.
free in flight Wi-Fi...
On Norwegian last month from Split to London was wonderful.
Dare I say...
...that I hope the villains get Shopped?
Just back from a holiday in Croatia's second city, Split. I couldn't believe how many free hotspots there are in a country only twenty years out of a civil war.
Re: Should I send this to our IT dept?
Helldesk? That says it all.
Vinyl smells nicer than MP3s.
Re: don't blame the public, the sign gives permission to drive on the taxiway
Taxing Aircraft? Are they the tiring ones or the ones who work for the revenue?
Re: "Dual Purpose Grenades"
Country music is about home life and western music is about the great outdoors.
auction off his own seat? Bottom Rats?
The way ahead has to favour those companies with a web link asking you when you'd like THEM to call you.
I'd rather talk to a friendly idiot who can't help me, than a robot.
Re: re: but the initials?...
Last year a shop in Surbiton got round this with a window display using square rings and the text "Lodno 0212"
Re: Been there, done that. In 1985.
bluegrass cello! Excellent!
It is in the loft next to my 512kb Amstrad, but I do still have mine
I don't do anything financial or confidential on my tablet. I'm delighted with the free Wi-Fi I can get standing inside or outside my bank chain or local brewery pubs.
Re: I'm totally fed up with swearing ...
Khaptain, I'm quite prepared for it here On El Reg but look at current comments On CNN after a report on a 'friend'who have away a GI's dog while he was on active service. The comments are pitiful, whoever was in the right. If aliens landed and saw how we use the web they'd leave for another 10,000 years.
Re: What the fork?
I think you mean synonyms. A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning.
I'm totally fed up with swearing ...
I'm sick of reading posts that start OMG or WTF or dude or Jeez. While I accept that it does the service of giving me an advance warning that the subsequent content will be semi-literate, I can still live without it.
Has John Leydon left...
...the Sex Pistols then? I bet I'm the 12th to ask today.
The terrible word 'phablet'
‘Phablet’ surely must be one of the worst literary contrivances of all time, supposedly meaning a tablet-sized phone. Surely 'Tablerone' is far better. I relish the thought of seeing idiots on trains and buses putting a Tablerone in their ear.
Die Hard 4.0
All you need is a roll-up keyboard that plugs into whatever you want to hack. Oh, and Bruce Willis aka John McLaine.
While standing on Box Hill...
...just what did people have to send messages about anyway? Most of them seemed to have painted them on the road the night before.
Anyway, I'm still aiming to be the last man standing without a mobile phone.
In a hundred years time...
...our descendants will be waiting keenly for the release of 2012 StretView images, only to find that they were all scrapped for data protection reasons. Please don't let that happen.
London buses are tracked by GPS, so shelters routinely have three-line screens ??? ROUTINELY?? They are the excception rather than standard and they are being removed. I don't have a fone-dle, I want bus stop displays.
I'd be happy just knowing why Google maps thinks the New King's Road, Chelsea is 'A308 motorway'.
On Google earth I can see a 12" wide ladder on next door's roof. Iknow it's aerial rather than from space, but the old standard was 'we can see a dinner plate from space.'
You can buy self-healing cutting boards in most art and carft shops. They are so clever.
Full analysis of the word
Sorry I can't post full details, but somewhere on the net there is a file called something like FWORD.mpg which is a full and serious analysis. It's very funny, if you find it.
...and why do you want to analyse a spectre...?
You said "I have no idea when an erratic driver is stoned (do you have some kind of portable gas chromatograph or sensitive spectral analyer or something?) but I can damn well see when the feckers are on the phone."
With the London Eye...
...when I travel in to London each day, I 'amuse' my self by letting my brain wonder which side of it I am lookg at. You can fool yourself into seeing the other side of it.
