If the type of people who shop at Aldi.
Are bottom feeders.......
What epithet should we ascribe to the type of chav^H^H^H^H people who shop at Lidl?

Ballmer probably genuinely wasn't involved in the negotiations, though he must still be held ultimately accountable for the utter shite that is Fista.
Having said that, all the twats that feel it necessary to have the latest Microsoft "shiny" really have made a rod for their own backs, and deserve no sympathy. Strike the class action I say!
On a lighter note: a survey I read the other day revealed that only 4% of businesses in the UK have upgraded to Fista. Do we really have businesses that stupid?
You actually believe the marketing puff found on the website of a bloody spyware company?
"clear opt-in opt-out solutions" Whaaat? You must be reading something the wrong page.
Think you'd better get a fresh supply of your medication.
Mine's still the one with Phuck off Phorm in rhinestones on the back.
Of all the nuLabour PC bollocks that is straightjacketing the entire country.
It starts out with school children banned from climbing trees or playing conkers etc. and ends up with the RN not allowed to fight genuine piracy.
I have to agree with Lewis.
Skull and crossed bones obviously (Why does your icon have crossed swords?)
Pretty much every house in the country has a connection to the sewer (I apologise in advance to those poor sods with a septic tank) Sewer pipes already run the length & breadth of the country. Fibre through the sewer has been tested & works.
Would also remove the likelyhood of JCB-fade. :-)
My neighbour asked for advice on what PC to buy for their daughter, who was orft to college to study some media related guff. So I said get a Mac, gave her enough info to get the right thing & told her specifically NOT to buy a windows machine. This was written down in crayon for the sales droid, so she would get the right thing for the job in hand, there was also an advisory from her college.
Unfortunately she went to PCW.
She came back with some poxy "media centre" PC the size of a brick, a 42" wide screen monitor/tv, all manner of wireless chaff, extended warranty, full MS Orofice licence, Norton PC fucker etc. etc.
Oh yeah, the PC is also running Fista (bloody slowly)
Over 2½ grand lighter in the pocket department too.
OK, Caveat emptor and all that, but the PCW droid knew he was onto a winner & really went for it. I'm told there were the usual "Macs don't run any software", "Fista is the only O/S", "You can't write a letter without Office @ 350 squids", "you can't connect to the internet without Norton PC fucker-upper @ 50 squids" etc. etc.
Sod bombing Slough, let's wipe these gits off the map :-)
Bye, I'm off to give Paris her daily portion of Mushy Peas :-)
Sorry Hipster, I refuse to use Crapfox, have been an Opera user for more years than I care to remember, occasionally try the oppo, but always come back.
You can always use the host file authored by Mike Skallas to block stuff, (http://everythingisnt.com/hosts) but then how would we be able to read El Reg FOR FREE (sorry about the American caps lock lapse) without advertisers :-)
Paris, as she loves mushy peas :-)
Let me guess, you either forgot the humour tag or you work in HR.
If the former, sorry mush.
If the latter; you fucking parasite!
General question to HR twats: How do you sleep at night knowing that you have never, ever, ever made a positive contribution to the bottom line at ANY company.
Those of us that bring in revenue should rise up. Rise up I tell you!
Excellent idea...... :-)
Another thought. How about we take the current obese generation, operate to remove the fat, render said fat down & use it to................
Fuel our cars :-)
Bingo. No more reliance on "big oil"
As an aside, if we do that there'll be no Chelsea supporters left.
Mine still has "Phuck off Phorm" in Rhinestones
Even here, in flattest Lincolnshire, where wind is pretty much guaranteed, the pay back period for a 1½m wind turbine (at todays electricity prices) is 50% longer than the designed operational lifetime of the bloody turbine.
Here's an idea: All televisions etc. sold in the UK come without a power cable, but are supplied with an exercise cycle fitted with a generator. The latest generation of fat couch potatoes could get fit whilst watching the drivel that is modern soap operas :-)
Hey, pedal-powered PC's & consoles? Who needs the Wii-fit?
OK, I'm leaving already :^)
"We asked if it was Home office policy to threaten journalists with excommunication if they try talking to senior civil servants. "No," she said. "It's just the way it is.""
So, she's saying it's not policy, but it is.
If one is a civilian, surely a civil servant should serve one?
"Anyone every tried running news.bbc.co.uk through W3Cs validator?
Clearly they didn't get their money's worth there."
I just put www.w3.org through the w3c's validator, no it didn't blow up the internet, unlike googling "google" or looking up wikipedia on wikipedia :-)
Seen how many errors are thrown up? 53!
I think w3.org need to eat their own dog food.
I'm already on my way out of the door, no coat today.
"I pay Sky a monthly stipend to provide my household with something that passes for 'entertainment' - I have no objection to that as it's both optional and productive."
You've got to laugh. Who, in their right mind, pays - yes, pays - for 45 minutes of advertising an hour? Aren't the adverts meant to pay for the service?
Licence fee, in my opinion, is very good value for money, have you seen the crap that's comically called "televison" in the US or Oz?
Who, when reading the post, immediately comes to the conclusion that the poster hasn't actually been using Fista? and, as another AC posted, assumes it's from a Microsoft shill.
If he had, and I'm in the unfortunate position of having to use it at work, he certainly wouldn't be posting such utter bollocks.
Paris, because even she isn't stupid enough to use it.
"Accenture and "Andersen Consulting" are two different firms."
I direct you to steer your broyser to:
Read & inwardly digest.
Once digested, imagine how many marketing tw@s paid off their mortgage on that sweet little deal..
I still maintain that "Accenture" = talking funny + shite.
