...the gift that keeps on giving.
I lived in Amsterdam, it was the happiest time of my life. Try it, you'll love it.
Downvoted for spelling.
You'll manage with English, but you'll get far more out of it if you make the effort and learn the language. It's easy, apart from some pronunciation. Best place I've ever lived and regret leaving.
And I learned it easily when I was working in Amsterdam.
Possibly one of the stupidest comments ever. Well done.
Me too... Common in the Stratus world.
Indeed so...and possibly made next president.
I'm staggered you got 2 downvotes. Daily Mail reader?
Ditto...in A level years, I did over 3 hours a night, not a week.
I'm amazed some twat found it necessary to downvote your factual post.
A fellow pilot.
Not really. It depends what you mean by virtualisation. G3 had the SWAP file which allowed 'virtualisation of memory' and G4 improved upon that by dividing memory into pages so that you didn't need to swap entire programs in and out of 'core', but really VME was the first ICL virtualisation product - it allowed you, eventually, to run native VME alongside legacy stuff in DME mode.
I'm old enough to have written some of George 3! Quite a lot of the SETPARAM code.
It's the 'intelligent woman' bit I find odd. I don't think she can be, all she seems to do is act moronically. I cannot understand how she got into Oxford, I really can't.
And there was me thinking we were English.
Bollocks. I have an ageing Jag S Type R, 4.2 supercharged V8. Kickdown means kickdown, believe me.
Prius, the car for people who hate cars.
I think it's crap. I had a short trial with them when it started, but my interests are not blockbusters, so it's obviously wrong for me. Also, our broadband is an oxymoron, so any streaming is fairly low quality and means no-one else can do much at the same time. And I bet I'm not alone there.
You write well for a five year old.
Absolutely, a great phone, with a wonderful camera. I only stopped using mine when the microphone developed a fault, but oh, that camera...
Indeed they did. I made a living modifying George 3 for quite a few years, and great fun it was, too.
Presumably Mr May?
May HAVE been. There is no verb 'to of'.
That's odd, you normally expect Treeza to have her finger on the pulse and react quickly with a well-researched plan, don't you?
Not an idiot? What makes you say that? He's not a successful businessman, if daddy hadn't been rich, he certainly wouldn't have been. He has the attention span of a goldfish. Nope, he's an idiot.
Interested in the downvotes. Presumably people upset that you're unwilling to forget the lies told by the leave campaign.
Not just simple...enjoyable.
I had a Fiat 125S. I loved that car. It lasted, ooh, several years before it dissolved.
I know what you mean, not sure I'd go that far. I never thought I would hate a PM as much as I hated Tony Blair, but, hey, I was wrong.
I hope you're right. I fear you're wrong.
You can't help wondering who the dimwit that downvoted was. St Theresa?
So you believed that lie, did you?
And I remember writing some of the OS for that ICL 1904S et al...
Yep, that works. I have one Windows app written for a customer that needs maintaining, and I run Visual Studio in a VN of Win 7 - it runs pretty well, too.
It really, really is possible to live a rich and fulfilling life without Windows. I abandoned it 5 years ago and things are just dandy. I admit I have no interest in games, so that could be a killer for some.
And flying VFR over London is something they tend to frown on at the best of times!
Open Media Vault on a Raspberry Pi. Unbeatable. Music where I want it, at a reasonable price.
And, much as I love the Reg, after 16 years, it has become a wee bit stale.
The correct plural of 'box' is 'boxes'.
Lovely cartoon in the New Yorker about a year ago:
2 chaps in a fancy loft apartment, one says to the other "What first attracted me to vinyl was the expense and inconvenience."
Sums it up for me!
Cars are still more expensive than horses? Not necessarily, believe me!
Absolutely...people living in remote areas, what rights do they have to anything? They'll be expecting electricity and water next.
You might be an amateur pilot - as am I, though we call them private pilots here - but you don't seem to know much about physics. Quite a lot of energy will be expended crashing into a 500g drone at 100knots.
I think you - and others - are missing the point that a huge amount of cruelty goes into the killing at this festival. If you think cruelty is acceptable, then I'm afraid I don't.
Surprised to see the downvote. A birdstrike is bad enough. A drone flying into you would not be good news.
Downvoted for the tedious cliché 'There, fixed that for you'.
Not if you have a dick like ours, who can barely read and write, and treats Call me Dave's words as the one true gospel. Anyway, he's currently being investigated for alleged election expense fraud so is far too busy to help anyone.
And what I find so disturbing is that hardly anyone I know seems to care.
Mind you, what's the alternative? We're bereft of (wo)men of stature.
Well, I managed ok with my PhD in particle physics, and nobody ever asked me if I'd got any MS exams.
