Massive study concludes: 'Global warming is real'


Unless they're thinking of putting wee sweat glands just under the Global Warming skin?

Major BT exchange titsup in power outage


Service restored now, for me anyway.

I guess redundant paths are, well, redundant these days. How did we let these arseholes fuck up our internet like this?

Fuck me, our static IP address is now suddenly dynamic. Way to go, BT fuck-wits.

Blizzard exposes real names on WoW forums


Unneccesary titular bollocks

I signed up with the wife's credit card. She'll be in deep shit now! :D

Tesco store bans shopping in pyjamas



The word it seems is "illiterately".

Yeah, but who goes white, ya Bacchanalian buffoon! :D

ISPs frosty on Jacqui's comms surveillance plan


@ Danny

Aye, but which utter nut-job will replace her?

Darth Vader tops movie misquote poll


Title? We don' need no steenkeen' title...

11. "Zulus - fahsands of 'em!"

12. "Don't shoot 'til you see the whites of their eyes..."

(They'd have won if they'd kept their eyes shut.)

Half of Brits abuse apostrophe's


@ It's simple

>In other cases, the apostrophe indicates one of more missing letters, so it's location is obvious: they're is short for 'they are', so the apostrophe replaces the ' a'; similarly 'it's' is short for 'it is' - a replacement of the ' i'.

"so its location", not "so it is location".

Mine's the one without the primed petard in the pocket.

iPhone beer maker sues Carling over virtual suds


Becks Vier...

Jesus. The water they use to brew the stuff is a fucking chemical.


@Simon Taylor

>As someone else commented above, Carling tastes like p*ss, is horrible and just made from chemicals.

Name me something that ISN'T made from chemicals?

Away and drink your beardy-weirdy real ale with twigs and mud in it, from your suitably chunky pint glasses with a handle, and leave all the clean, fresh chemical-laden fizzy lager to the fucking experts.

BT's third Phorm trial starts tomorrow


Sorry for being blunt, but...

> Interestingly, the Home Hub has my MAC address on it - meaning I could sign up with a new company right now.

Media Access Control ≠ Migration Activation Code.

The Google-isation of all the net's access points




Fugly, lack of options (right-click reload, please?), lack of GUI options, Javascript issues, no auto mouse-gestures included, bookmarks hidden away, dns pre-fetch auto-enabled, middle-click open in new tab, but no auto-display - WTF? Looks decidedly as if it was not designed for desktops.

Interestingly good:

Inspect element, Task manager.

If they can fix the bad and retain the good, then it could be a contender.

GooTube cheers online gay porn ruling



> man you suck.

Yep, and so do Chelsea. Your point was...?

US court says IP addresses are private


@ Sam

Thanks for that link. Nice to see Nicholas Bohm tear Phorm a new arsehole. I presume the Home Office will finally take heed of common sense at last?

Or should I really not be holding my breath?

Missing, presumed tardy: Orange IPTV


Oh Really?

"Orange describes itself these days as a "Total Communications" provider, whatever that is."

Having had considerable difficulties with their broadband service, I can only describe them as a "Shower Of Cunts".
