You maniacs!

I think "Windows ME" might be taking it a stage too far!


Why is this "person" still an employee?

Re: My opinion on this?

Yup! I use http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/ but I doubt there is much difference in their functionality: Destroy 10!

CIOs, what does your nightmare before Christmas look like?


This is not the BOFH you are looking for...

How exactly are you supposed to get the malware onto the air-gaped computer?

RED planet, INDIAN mission: Space probe prepares for voyage to Mars orbit


It's nice to know that India has millions to piss away on a mission to Mars, but sadly not enough to feed the hundreds of millions who live in abject poverty and suffering.

You'll never prove you're a "first" world nation by sending a rocket into space, India. You'll prove it by creating some form of infrastructure and social welfare.

How NSA spooks spaffed my DAD'S DATA ALL OVER THE WEB


If you have not already, I would recommend investing in a secure VPN or the TOR Browser Bundle.

Stop sending me fake BOFH alerts in my emails, you heartless bastards! Seriously, you are just grinding my day into the ground every time you send me one of those emails and I find out that you have been lying to me again. I hate you right now, El Reg.

San Francisco's rogue BOFH is guilty


BOFH? Pshaw!

I hardly think that an angry engineer who threw his bottle out of the pram and proceeded to change some passwords, is in any way deserving of the lofty title of BOFH. In fact, I am shocked that El Reg would even consider giving this MSCE-esq fellow such a title, let alone post it as front-page news!

Furthermore, who at the Requarters(did you like that?) decides who is and who is not a BOFH? Are they qualified for such a role? I propose an investigation and publication of said individual(s) deeds and qualifications.

Yours Sincerely,


Android on an iPhone? There's an app for that



If you bought an iPhone, you bought it because you wanted an iPhone. Thinking of putting Android on your iPhone? Why the hell didn't you buy an Android phone then?
