...these guys get $25/hour tops for doing this.
This is the angle...
...that I am interested in this story as well. For instance, this:
really should be available on LOVEFiLM by now...
...on the Acorn - no-one has come close to that for dogfighting fun since.
All I want to know is...
...will a coyote speaking in Johnny Cash's voice tell me to try and find my soul mate if I eat this?
Never mind this...
...when is the official Google Talk for Linux client coming out?
Ah, internet gaming forums...
...where everyone who bought a Wii spends their spare time.
The Daily Mash...
...says it all:
Stop believing everything that comes of Clarkson's mouth people...

From The Day Today
in the episode where the scientist Travis Daveley has reanimated a corpse to execute the guy who killed him is being interviewed by Barbara Wintergreen.
Travis Daveley: I have this little dream whereby there's this whole village of reanimated corpses, and if you like, a kind of control tower at the centre of that village with a bank of monitors, and I control all the corpses.
Barbara Wintergreen: Why use corpses? Why not normal people? Why don't you just leave things the way they are?
Daveley: Because, because normal people... because I wouldn't have my tower. I want a tower.
Jobs is Daveley isn't he?
...offer everyone running Windows 2000 and earlier a free upgrade to XP.
There's loads of them still out there.
This is a terrific app. It loads in no time at all and has handled every PDF I've ever needed to view and print.
Best of all, it doesn't try and unnecessarily ingratiate itself into my browser.
Look where Casino businesses are usually registered
Hint: it's not the UK.
Try Gibraltar, or Malta.
25yearsof.com - Verisign double fail
"Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\website\class\init.php on line 7"
Fail 1) They're using a Windows server
Fail 2) They didn't install the PHP MySQL connector
Still, the site has been registered and I suppose with Verisign, that's all that matters...
...but that was just a noise.
Because we should always remember to bow, scrape and tug our collective forelocks at people who are worth billions of dollars shouldn't we?
As long as if I buy an add-on for my home computer, I don't have to pay again to get it on my work computer.
Not the problem
I don't think page clutter is the issue - my Dell Inspiron mini 9 is pretty good at cluttered HTML, but anything involving flash hangs like a monkey in Hartlepool.
Intel and Adobe really need to sort this out because the Atom should be better than it is at playing flash. My ARM-based mobile phone is better and the chip in that is teeny compared to the netbook...
Before anyone else, hopefully...
...remember, it is a completely 'made up' drug and may also be known as 'Joss Ackland's Spunky Backpack'.
It's a f*****g disgrace.
I wonder if a port of that will get 'approved'?

Welcome to The Register, Jim (or someone who works for his organisation)
...is already flaky enough as it is. If this takes off in the way the people at Spotify hope it does, won't the network fall down completely?
The answer is in this page
"On July 13, 2010, Extended Support for Windows 2000 Professional will end."
In other words, they have zero excuses except incompetent software developers for not switching to IE7 after that date.
The NHS still use IE6 as well. Probably because the 'developers' who built their shiny 'new' IT system hard-wired everything to it.
Makes my job as a developer of web apps that are sold to the NHS a big fat PITA.
It appears the United States Patent and Trademark Office website requires 'Quicktime' to view images.
I'm sure their rapid and trouble-free granting of many, many patents to Jobs & Co. is entirely unrelated to this fact.
You could offer everyone who calls you 4p/min rebate cheques.
Microsoft v Adobe
Can't they both lose?
Er, Rik - the tone of this article is hardly praising the offer.
It's a sucky offer from a consistently sucky company.
