Nokia's Ovi store mostly unavailable and empty

Dominic Kua

How did you do it?

I've managed to get the SMS once out of four tries, no client, it won't sync and the page renders like a cow on Opera and firefox for me.

I'd like to use it, but I don't think my e65 is going to let me.

Dungeons & Dragons slays its digital distribution

@James Hein

When you say they're as bad as Hasbro, you mean that they are Hasbro since Hasbro bought them 10 years ago.

Anyway, 2.5 is the one true ruleset, who'd want the new ones? I can't get the hang of this only D20s thing, last I heard they'd even done away with THAC0!

Dual graphics cards in a dual screen laptop

We're talking what, 35 mins battery life?

Unless it's just for use in a mobile base rather than actually on a terrorist. Perhaps a new EeePC, the Eee200AT (anti terrorist).

Mind you I wouldn't say no to one of these for my own err... testing of massively distributed user/client infrastructures with high load graphical interface.

Infant calls cops to dad's dope plantation

Dominic Kua
Thumb Up

Why search?

Simple really, if someone's just been killed as they called the police, does the killer only need an infant and a prop to get away with it?

I'm no great fan of the police, but they have excellent reasons to check that when an emergency call is made that they're investigating the event properly.

Although if they were as apathetic as people here would like, it would make an excellent crime thriller plot. "Murderer misleads police by staying at the scene of the crime and using a baby"

Microsoft smooths Windows 7 snafu

Dominic Kua

Very smooth,

So smooth in fact that clicking the "download" button seems to do nothing, at least not in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera or Chrome.

Looks like I'll have to torrent the iso to try it.

I bet it's her doing it

Just for some twisted reason that will make a TV miniseries and a direct to DVD movie, possibly a novelisation if she plays it right.

Cunning plan.... BRB off to Blogger to start calling myself names.

Lenovo preps dual-display Frankenlaptop

Dominic Kua

Great idea

But any chance we can get some SI measurements in there for those of us who wouldn't know a pound in weight if they held it in their hands? Maybe a few centimetres too, because well, I like centimetres.

The laptop sounds great, I too miss a second monitor when I don't have it, especially for programming (and gaming, but don't tell my boss). I'm just a little worried about its strength, floating in the air like that.

This is the kind of Journalism

This country needs more of. How is it that it's left to a tech rag to publish these harrowing pictures, while the mainstream press ignore what's happening on their doorsteps?

Bravo El Reg, Bravo.

losing Xorg.conf?

That'll be like losing an old friend :(

What happens when you muck about with the graphics drivers and the gui won't load? Do you have to go to an auto-configured xorg?

Oh I'm so confused, the new things look good, but losing xorg.conf? I don't know if I should upgrade...

Oh wait I'll just try it on a live CD, problem solved :p

I think that's treason. Can't you still be hanged for that here?

I just checked, no you can't. Oh well, I'm sure it's frowned upon nonetheless.

AMD pooh-poohs 'Atom smasher' cancellation claim

Dominic Kua
Joke

Never take a pooh pooh lightly!

As Melchet once said:"Well, I hope so, Blackadder. You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!"

Coups are pretty much a tradition in Thailand now, They can't get rid of the biannual coup, what would people talk about?

And anyway, porn on the net's an easy target, every government loves it both to use and to vilify.

Suicide squirrel knocks out Swiss TV

@Ramon Cahenzli

That's what they want you to think.

Where were the other squirrels? Hmm? They only revealed the truth about this one because they couldn't plausibly deny it. As for the other 8 who managed a similar feat, well... " A roasted squirrel is not an act of terrorism, so nobody powered up the emergency studio."

Sheeple would believe that, but I don't!

Just as G.W. is seen hanging around the women's beach volleyball area, a sudden breakthrough in invisibility occurs.

Military's probably had this for 10 years, he is CiC after all, putting tax dollars to a purpose at least half the electorate would approve of is surely a first?

Dog off the menu at Olympic restaurants

Dominic Kua
Dead Vulture

@ratfox

It's pretty variable at the moment. Today the visibility is excellent here in Chaoyang, yesterday the air was redolant with healthy hydrocarbons.

As a side note, there was dog on the menu on Thursday night here, a stone's throw from Chang'an Jie, so perhaps like spitting, it's nothing more than a news story.

*hawks up a loogie and lets rip at the yappy pomeranian that keeps annoying me in the evenings*

Dead vulture because the duck's much nicer anyway.
