Shower of lying bastards and it's not the first time they've been slapped for making false claims.
Bastarding Flash and that chuffing Real Player. I hates em both, me.
The Thompson Twins singer was from Sheffield. So, at least part Brit.
I have COPD and asthma and I vape with no adverse effects.
"The superficial resemblance to Petya is only skin deep,"
Tautology... it is what it is.
Way back, I had an Amiga 1200 with an intermittently fautly mouse. I couldn't work out what caused it to stop working, the switches weren't the silly silver plated ones, the ball (remember those) was clean, as were the rollers.
I began to notice the thing stopped working always at a certain time of day and gradually realized the problem was caused by sunlight shining through a nearby window into a gap in the mouse casing. This was sending one of the internal sensors daft. Solution: A piece of paper taped over the gap.
I could have pulled down the blind but I liked the view over Rivelin Valley from my window.
Was a badly edited (so it didn't repeat correctly) loop of an Enya track. For hours. I didn't like Enya before but now whenever I hear her "music" I get a red mist in front of my eyes.
“This is like one of my biggest pet peeves,”
Misuses "like". Sues date.
Oh dearie bloody fuck.
This could get interesting very quickly.
People will tend to trust something they have been told is genuine, even when it's demonstrably compromised, or been shown to be total bollocks. So called Lie Detectors, for example, have no scientific validity, yet many people still think they work.
At the very least, (Insert politician/public figure of your choice here) can always claim they never said such a thing and that it was created by this simulator. It's been - in theory - possible to put together fake speeches by using tape editing and sampling but this tech makes it much more convenient.
Yup. Or just dig out yer old Speccy.
did anyone with a functioning brain expect anything other than this?
The guy is a shyster, a smoke and mirrors merchant and quite possibly not too bright.
Sennheiser all the way.
Seems like Spongebob was predictive after all.
That's the nearest I can find to me, given the list shown.
I have good social skills, was frequently in a manager/TL post and often caused utter mayhem (deliberately) at many places I worked.
I love making people laugh. Not all people, not all the time, and not necessarily at the same time, either.
Yup, I can confirm the Gor books - or at least, the one I read - are/is shite but so what? Unless the guy is hunting down unwilling victims and acting out his fantasies on 'em I don't see what the problem is.
Any laws broken? Anyone harmed by this? Nope. Then shut the fuck up.
Yup. Most of their hardware and fittings are commonly available anyhow.
One hundred and chuffing three? And it was One chuffing hundred? Damn, that's low. Worryingly low.
No wonder most people seem stupid.
Just so long as it's not Telos or Mondas I ain't too worried.
And upvoted. The sooner Fakebook, Twatter, Googhoul and the like get their wings clipped, the better.
Antigravity already exists. Buttered cat.
Grauniad have also pulled their ads for the same reason. The only way Google and others of that ilk will ever be made to do anything is by hitting them in the pocket.
Long may it continue.
I never wanted one of these things before and I most definitely do not want one now.
Go and fuck yourselves with something sharp.
I welcome our nano-scale overlords.
... and early Curry's deliveries.
I mean, who'd want *anything* from Curry's?
My son has Autism, possibly Asperger's. No doubt he'll be singled out for special attention when he gets older.
What a fucking world.
That he's Zuckerberg.
Not necessarily added wow and flutter, if you used a decent deck. Nakamichi springs to mind, or one of the high end Akai decks before they rolled over and died, to be swallowed up by Sony.
Having said that, cassettes were never designed for decent sound; all the improvements that happened to 'em still didn't bring them up to even vinyl quality.
Oh, fucking Ada. Just when you thought people couldn't get any more stupid/vain/vapid/useless.
Agreed and upvoted.
I welcome our Venusian Overlords.
Thought I'd get that one in before anyone else. :)
Nah, Plutonium would be much, much better. :D
Your washing machine will arrive in 10,9,8,7....
Aaaagh! Run away!
Yup. Also the starting point for Captain Scarlet.
Deserving of upvote for Protector reference.
Taking privacy seriously is *not* the same as respecting it and ensuring it.
The problem with language, particularly English, is that it's so malleable it's possible to imply many different things by saying nothing of the kind.
Thought I'd join in the collective kicking they're getting here.
Having worked for 'em years back, I can confirm they're a total shower of bastards.
Yahoo! Fucks! Up! Again!
You'd be surprised how many people have autism, judging by your response. It *should* be used as mitigation - if - the suspect/perp/whatever has a diagnosis. OTOH, don't be surprised if others try it on as a result. The good old US of A doesn't seem to give a damn, though, judging by the way they go after overseas suspects, autism or not.
My two small children have autism, both show signs of genius, neither have a very strong sense of consequences. Despite all my efforts, I'm not going to be able to provide guidance forever so I worry about their future.
Good read. Thanks for the link.
Most people are thick. Really, really thick. There are more young(er) people online, using smartphones etc than old(er) people. The older ones who use these things tend to have some interest in what they are using because generally speaking, that's how olduns were brought up. They tend to be at the smarter end of the spectrum, whereas, at the younger end, everyone uses the kit.
So, there's an imbalance in smarts to tech ratio, which is why it's happening. Simples.
Windows 7 Pro works just fine for me, thanks. Many of the apps I use will not run properly - if at all - on Windows 10. Some "helpful" people have suggested that it's because the apps have weird code/nonstandard this/that/t'other...
I don't give a monkey's why, or who is to blame; I just want to be able to use my apps with as little fuss and bother as possible.
Anyhow, I rather like Win7.
These whining shites must surely live on a different planet from the rest of us. Every time I read about/hear of one of these types griping, I am driven to wonder how they managed to function in a world with real, enforceable rules that aren't necessarily to their liking.
I don't find that sort of behaviour appealing in my own small children, and nor do I tolerate it. So you can probably make a good guess what I'd say to Mr Crybaby Allen.
It's her body. How she chooses to use it is no damn business of anyone else. The ones posting insults to her - and others who do similar - are gutless cowards, plain and simple.
I use a 4 blade razor. Not overkill with my manly stubble. Best shave I ever had. Two blades just don't cut it. Pun very much intended.
But not yet. When the tech gets better I' want to be able to print out my 3D models and make my own custom minuature Daleks.
Yes, I could use Shapeways but I'd much prefer to do it all myself.
You, Sir - or Madam - are a tit.
