...finally searches for C++ will work in Google. At long bloody last.
That's what I meant- I listed the series higpoints that the programs seem to go downhill from; well not downhill from- but they never hit that same high note again. Still, Lineham/Matthews mediocre is 100 times better than the usual trash paraded as comedy these days.
or worse, the zombie corpse of The Simpsons.
On the plus side, I can now buy the complete box set, I held off after I heard about the possiblity of a 5th series.
Though now they are talking about a one-off special so I might hold off until that.
I do think that "Work Outing" was when the show jumped the shark TBH. A bit like Speed 3 in Father Ted and the episode with Manny in the piano on Black Books.
Though I did love Street Countdown.
Okay, now on my sixth copy- 2 more since the apology.
and another copy at 15:52. El Reg must really want me to have these email addresses.
My copy has just arrived... (14:10pm)
...as evidenced by "Verizon doesn't know dollars from cents":
There is nothing unique about what groupon delivers. Anyone buying this stock will only prove the old adage 'a fool and his money are easily parted'.
Besides which, if they waited around long enough, I'm sure they'll get an email offering them the same product with 60% off...
I thought Gozilla defeated him in an epic battle fought in downtown Tokyo...
Viz will be suing him for copyright shortly...
if you want to be politically correct, please use the term 'septics' instead.
add that and JQuery Mobile and the majority of App development requests I get can be handled with a bit of web development.
Apple never invented computers, smart phones or mp3 players. What they did was they simplified them so people, who where not technically competent, could understand and use them and believe themselves to be on par with the technically competent people who did not use Apple products.
The downside of this is that the average Apple user is unable to innovate mainly because they remain technically incompetent. And it's for this reason that they would slavishly buy anything Apple would have to offer rather than coming up with something better. It also explains that why, when they seen non-Apple companies making better products, they start chanting the mantra 'don't try- Apple have already perfected it'.
they should put that money into updating their GNSS kit. The System 500 that the surveyor is using is over 10 years old and practically obsolete now (it cannot handle the GLONASS constellation or SV32).
I've always liked Ericsson products and hated Sony Products. I've never had a non Ericsson phone but I'll be dropping SE like a hot snot if it becomes a Sony only concern.
I really hope a load of the Apple Faithful give them a really hard time.
...his death is a boon for tech journalists who had set aside thousands of column inches which were to be devoted to the iPhone 5.
While his death wasn't entirely unexpected, it was still a shock when I caught this on the news this morning.
Where's the Steve with a halo icon when you need it?
then sure the correct antidote would be to set him up with a tightener of the first order.
...by allowing them to loan on my money to other parties and making a nice chunk of interest out of it. Also I'm sure my money (and others) appears in some line in their yearly reports, indicating some form of success in their business and encouraging others to invest.
And I allow the banks to do this with my money for free. So if the bank wants to make it easier for me to transact my money with them; don't be taking the piss and try charging me for it. After all, a house safe is free, available 24 hours and a lot safer (pardon the pun).
I had this exact conversation with my bank manager 25 years ago and have not been charged any transaction charges since.
...because according to Adobe, crashing your machine is a requirement.
Here's a video of the Major of Villinus running over luxury cars in an armoured vehicle:
Will that do?
Great to see that he turned up at the ceremony to accept his award.
A cytokine inhibitor would be very useful if a H5N1 flu variant did break out (like Spanish Flu) as most of the victims of it died to Cytokine Storm (a fatal immune reaction).
I had no end of issues trying to wrest away, a domain a friend of mine had registered with them. He called me in because they made the whole process so complex that it needed someone with IT savvy to unravel it all.
'Generally, Facebook does not lie'
...I'm currently reading a book called 'Beer is proof that god loves us'
they are not particularly popular here in Ireland either.
to be fair, I've had a few BSODs on my Mac running Snow Leopard. The only difference was that the Mac version didn't come with any text- Just a light blue screen.
"We even did some statistics on the amount of use the statistics system got too. Zero per cent. No one looked at it - like we said they wouldn't."
Yep- that's so bloody true. In my case, I was able to unplug and decommission all the hardware involved and it was over a year before anyone noticed.
Another handset manufacturer realizing short-term fad popularity does not convert into a long-term business proposition.
Anyone remember the Motorola RAZR??? The iPhone will be next.
...The Emperors New IPO.
"freedoms and rights of creators of content to be rewarded fairly."
I wonder if he would like to give us his definition of what 'rewarded fairly' actually means.
Is 'isolated server' the new 'rogue reporter'???
I think we need more metrics on this survey. Like how many of the respondents, who answered yes to allowing unwarranted search and/or torture, are members of the Tea Party, or watch Fox News.
Groupon work by forcing companies to sell at a 60% discount and then take 50% of the remaining profit for themselves (plus tax). And they also keep all of the money in the event that the customer does not use their coupon.
...Green energy with alternative energy.
to extend that- People want disposable tech- Many know that the shiny gadget they have today will be superseded by an even shinier gadget within 12 months.
The correct farewell would be 'I'm going outside; I may be awhile...'
Goodbye and good luck John, thanks for all the stories.
'my daddy is Roger Waters???'
The only problem is this 'hack' existed 10-15 years before this person was born. I remember fooling '30 day test' software by setting the clock 5 years into the future before installing.
"these can be identified by the addition of a semi-colon to the application name"
Sounds like ole Bobby Tables has been at work again...
but only because Cane Toads aren't carriers...
...given the privileged background these two come from, $65m is probably regarded as pocket change.
Anyway, if I was them, I'd be dumping those stock-options very quickly...
I don't think such a thing exists.
'I thought you everything you know. However I didn't teach you everything I know.'
...I used to love his text adventures
...when I got my Google+ account. Interestingly Zuckerberg had not switched it on at that point.
