Beware Red Lectroids!
"To sum up; the guy's a fucking idiot."
He's a politician. It's in the job requirements!
<insert 20minute non-stop tirade of expletives here> and the horse you and your "honourable" colleagues rode in on!
Nope, the top of the PC was covered in little towels!
I know a LOT of Australian "Star Citizen" gamers are hoping for an "Oceania" region to be on that list.
The game runs on Google's Cloud, and their current nearest DC is Singapore, which does NOT make for good latency.
Silly wins again!
How about RRS Michael Palin, or RRS Jeremy Clarkson. Both have links to that part of the world.
*Hint - Read downwards!
If they're serious, they should offer to defend ANYONE charged under this law "pro bono" (for free)!
Sadly, there is no longer "still time". We lost Sir Ken last Thursday.
'Splody icon, because that's how his Bond sets often ended up.
Not voting is NOT voting NO!
These gimps are all as bad as each other. Pic of typical MP off-duty ---->
"For that you first need to specify the speed of an unladen Celery - and no African/European shenanigans please..."
Oldest known reference to celery is from Tutankhamen's tomb, so definitely African.
OFGUM you mean?
Most of the UK's are now in India!
"Where's linux on the fondleslab when you need it?"
Wait a month:-
Unless you meant phones, in which case right here, right now!
Note the phones at each end are running Ubuntu
It's kinda hard to make a concrete block transmit anything!
In the first example, what are the odds that the ex-programmer who called in was the one who wrote that comment in the first place, back when the world was young?
"It's not what you know, it's who you know"
Actually, it's what you know ABOUT who you know!
I disagree. Funding should come directly from MP's paychecks, with no compensating raise!
1: Volunteer for this
2: Finger May for ALL crimes possible
4: PROFIT for ALL!
I once got an earful at the local supermarket because I complained to a builder who had parked his van across TWO disabled bays near the door to the shop.
This was WHILE I was pushing my wheelchair-bound mother to the far end of the carpark where I'd had to park, even though we HAD a valid blue badge!
Kill off its "Acceptable Ads" scheme and block ALL of the unwanted bandwidth-munching rubbish!
Obligatory Star Wars quote:-
"Octarine, associated with all things eight-ish, but the petitioners decided to go with 117 instead of 118 ?"
Because 117 is a halogen, and therefore can end with "ine" instead of "ium"
I still think this may not have been to steal the records of 21m people with security clearance.
It may have been to ADD a couple dozen clearances for another power's embedded agents.
"Are all UK home secretaries unpleasant people before they take up the role, or do they suddenly become nasty on assuming office?"
Screen all your incoming calls through an answering machine which has the outgoing message starting with that 3-tone chime that you get when dialling an unavailable number.
This tone is what tells the robodialler these scum use that the number is not in service, and wipes it from it's database.
Just wait till he adds this mode to Teslas!
Heston WAS hired to come up with recipes for Tim, and his show will air on C4 in the spring
Turn in your nerd card. He was quoting this:- http://www.montypython.net/scripts/piranha.php
This week's "Government-enforced backdoor" will become next week's "Haxxor's catflap".
All it needs is for an official to leave their encryption key on the bus, AGAIN!
Some idiot will try this on a fighter plane armed with laser guided bombs.
File under Darwin Award.
(Yes, I know that's not how laser guided bombs really work, but it sounded nice inside my head)
Got it on my Nexus 5 phone, but still waiting for Nexus 7 2013 tablet.
Pretty sure Playmobil is not owned by LEGO.

There may be MORE records on the system than OPM think they had.
Instead of STEALING the data, $FOREIGNPOWER may have ADDED their own spies records to the clearance database for later espionage.
(El Reg needs a tinfoil hattery icon!)
I read elsewhere that the more expensive "Storm" model WILL take a 128GB MicroSD.
Definitely got a patch, but it actually WASN'T a version bump (my error).
It WAS a Stagefright fix though, being the first of the new monthly security updates:-
This version closes the "Stagefright" vulnerability, and arrived on both my Nexus 5 & 7 last night.
Your "skeleton key" WILL be left on the bus at the first opportunity!
The company I currently work for had the factory extended a few years back, with a nice shiny new server room specced out. (A windowless concrete box)
I got sent in to wire up a couple of phone lines as we started moving staff into the new block.
While doing this work, I realised that the builders had installed nothing more technical than a bathroom extractor fan, as the plans called for.
I immediately pointed out to my superiors how much this would likely cost in cooked servers, and suggested they got the builders back to tie it into the AC of the new lab next door.
Looks like I have a fan. One person votes EVERY post I make down.
Looks like a Marketroid reads El Reg. Why else vote me down?
Maybe the reason tablet sales are down is because EVERYONE WHO WANTS ONE HAS ONE?
Having read the original article, it seems the drone was operating at BELOW roof height (approx 10 feet), and stopping at intervals to ogle sunbathing girls, including HIS daughters!
Most likely a Glock MODEL 40 which is a 10mm calibre weapon
Ikea also sell lamps & bedside tables with built-in charging pads.
New target $700,000 to add Alan Shepard's suit to the display.
