Oh, that Yosemite
I thought the book was about the National Park. 0/10 would not misconstrue again.

SF is always a pale shadow of what it was 20 years ago. In 20 years people will be saying the same thing.
I think that cabbies do have a stranglehold on the market, but I also think that there are going to be some things that will never be economical to provide and so will never be handled by the free market. Cabs should transport disabled passengers - and shouldn't just leave a passenger in the lurch if they show up and find that they are in a wheelchair. That's the sort of thing that needs regulation, at least in my mind.
I don't disagree that we have too much regulation now, but no regulation isn't much better.
"Back to the female aspect - appreciate the effort they make to look nice, and don't forget to show that appreciation. It's a positive investment."
How can a comment that ends with this phrase get downvoted? Truer words were never spoken, and a good piece of advice too blokes everywhere. Try to limit yourselves to women you're involved with, or want to become involved with though, lest you come across as a perv...
More importantly, are you gonna continue to use that psuedo-emo bird's picture(s) to illustrate every story on the IPO?
I'm not complaining, just asking...
Hacker friend was boffing daughter, dad was looking to find a way to throw the book at him. Or dad decided to press his advantage and write him up for anything remotely justifiable once the 'hacking' came to light.
Optional: Hacker broke up with daughter, dad extra pissed off cos daughter is taking it badly. Decides to use this as a way to get him back...
Ok, so they're not all from this year (not even close), but: Braid, Limbo, World of Goo, P.B Winterbottom, Machinarium, the Bit.Trip series, Fluidity, & Night Sky., Next year, Botanicula looks good, plus Miegakure if it ever gets released.
Basically, if you want to find good games, you'll hear about them & find 'em. If you don't, you won't.
It's fun, though rather frustrating at times... I don't know about you lot but I seem to be consistently matched up with players who are twice my rank - I'm ~ 35, everyone else is over 60. Then I get my ass handed to me.
I mean, I would get stomped on anyway, but the stomping seems a little cruel & unusual....
She looks like a total ditz, unfortunately. Oh well.
Thumbs up regardless :)
That not good enough these days?
You know how you're always saying how back in the day computers used to be gadgets that you could play and tinker with, instead of locked-down devices for the mindless consumer? And how hours spent exploring in your basement gave you the curiosity to explore and learn?
This is how kids do it these days. Celebrate it, don't knock it. We all share curiosity and drive but express it in different ways.
Now get orf my lawn.
Primarily for 'incognito' mode browsing. Though it seems it's the wrong browser to use for that...
Leaving aside whether it's true, I laughed.
Some dubstep is shite, some is great. A small fraction is amazing.
Like with everything. For example, whatever you listen to. Which I may also like as well!
Uhh.. where was I?
Yeah, there was some good writing in PB back in the day - Arthur C. Clarke & Asimov among others...
Also, does Sarah still write for El Reg? This story is made for her...
I ran network cable along the skirting boards and secured it with cable clips - seems to work ok and is practically invisible. Wife didn't complain. It's only an apartment so only one floor to deal with though...
Only the ones where we want their land or resources.
She could have hidden it properly.
And not in a good way.
Ashton Kutcher too, in case anyone thinks I'm sexist...
Kind of a bitch, I think!
Him: 'Am surprised something so small could cause so much interest'
Her: 'Well you would know about that, wouldn't you?'
Completely unprompted, it seems - though without seeing his reaction hard to tell if it was a friendly jibe or a mean one. She didn't seem to smile too much after, either.
I was left thinking 'Oh, snap! (Yes, I did think that) - where did *that* come from!'
That is all. :)
I have to say, I still don't see the practicality of cloud computing. Your corporate (or personal) data is managed offsite by a third party, with all the risk that that entails, and you need a super-fast permanent internet connection for something as mundane as adding the cover sheet to your TPS report.
Risks seem much much bigger than rewards...
Or am I missing something?
(That's not rhetorical - I'm not known for being bright)
That picture is classy and sexy. Well done her!
/off to my room
Who 'downvotes' this post?! It's a bit of fun. It's not like he said '... willing to wear a catholic school girl's uniform and clean everything with her tongue'
Now, *that's* a post that needs downvoting!
/gets coat, runs for door...
Leaving a motel, too? Classy - just how I like 'em...
The dogs with bees in their mouths!
...the dogs with bees in their mouths!
That spotty Herbert also wants to see the pictures of the cute girls, too.
Am I the only person who thought Frozen Yogurt was involved?
//Yes, I do live in California....
Actually, not quite. Only a small proportion of my friends were on myspace or Friendster.
The number of friends / girls who snubbed me a school / ex-bullies who are now bald / people who I'd actually lost touch with and wanted to reconnect with, who *were* on FB but not on its predecessors was about an order of magnitude...
I actually use Chromium (not Chrome) for private browsing and nothing else. Since I use Opera for regular browsing, don't want to get things mixed up...
...But I listened to Chris Moyles (a perennial reg fave) commentate on the NZ game this morning (US time) and found it very amusing.
As far as the England game goes, if they had played like they did in the second half for the entire game (as in 'oh shit we might actually lose and our WAGS would dump us!') the score could have been 2-0 or even 3-0. Oh well.
... that any video that starts with a chick wearing at least some clothes, and riding a bicycle wouldn't be 'sexy' enough for me to be interested.
//Not densensitized at all...
Why is it that when I was a kid, Radio 2 was something yer dad listened to, and now I'm approaching early middle age (yikes!), Radio 2 is *still * something yer dad listens to?
(I mix Radio 1, 1Xtra (no, really!) & Radio 4 to get Radio 2.5Xtra, meself)
Like this point if you noticed the nested parenthesis...
I know a lot of you don't agree but Billie can <insert your own lame Dr. Who double-entendre here> anyday. Though this new bird seems pretty promising too. The saucy minx.
"Yeah, I know we initially thought 60kg but we must have overestimated. We just double-checked the evidence locker and it was definitely a 58kg shipment we intercepted...."
"I work with a woman who is 22 but would easily pass for 15...."
Can I have her number? I'll provide the school uniform...
Gregory - thanks for that 'Model in Bondage' link. Most dirty sites are blocked by my netfilter at work. I didn't realize that such filth was available on Wikipedia - which isn't blocked.
I'll... uhhh... be back in a few minutes...
<The post is required, and must contain letters.>
isn't the speed of your hard disk usually the bottleneck for most non-trivial problems (i.e. when you have more data than you can fit into memory at once)?
i.e. - is this much of a surprise?
Carry on, that is all!
Fire is indeed hot!
... are a bunch of old fogies, aren't you? I like both Moyles & the evening Radio 1 shows. Though I agree, real-world twats are all idiots. 'Stupid Street' is every street.
Isn't Steve Lamacq on 6Music? And I think I've seen Bruce Dickinson in the schedule too. Not quite to my tastes but not too far off.
Let's get rid of Switch, tweens already influence the media way too much...
I'd better not either then.
And since I'm here, I may as well read the article...
Lacrosse, or softball, or rugby (or ice hockey for those of us exiled up north) are not good sports to watch if you're looking for eye candy. So, don't judge them all by those lot.
You had me at 'US Sorority girls in booze-fueled orgy', anyway.
That is all. Carry on.
My problem is that PETA seem to be using the death of Baby P to promote their own agenda. Sure, if more people report animal cruelty, potential human abuse may be avoided, but PETA (by their very name), care more about animal cruelty than human cruelty.
