Or perhaps scheissestreuung
So did my wife - she just pointed to the Dyson and told me to clean the floor up.
I was beginning to wonder if due to the budget overrun they were going to be using bundles of the install DVDs from the older versions as munition to drop on targets...
If you want good trains, go to Hull
I'd love to, except that as I live in the south-east I'd have to go there by Southern or Thameslink.
So I'm rather stuck on the starting blocks...
So we've gone from "let them eat cake" to "let them watch Games of Thrones"?
The new cry of the out-of-touch elite control freaks...
And the base irony here is Kodi do not actually make any hardware or "boxes" at all. It's just the software that 3rd party vendors use (as it's free) and stick on there and then pollute with all the piracy add-ons (also not produced or endorsed by Kodi).
Kodi itself (as downloaded from their website) doesn't come with any media sources pre-installed at all, and is just a very flexible and powerful media player.
It's even a violation of their trademark policy to do so, not that no-name Chinese vendors bother about such trivial legalities as trademark, copyright or the like.
I always thought liquid voice was another synonym for a technicolour yawn or pavement pizza delivery...
Or another one that seems to resurface around here every so often:
originally defined as a male describing the figure of a woman, but lately seems to have migrated to meaning when a woman is animatedly describing something by waving her arms about.
I still think the even older definition of fibre is more appropriate.
After all, given the amount of shit some of these companies produce, they must be consuming enough fibre to fill several breakfast bowls...
Bran flake anyone?
Why should she be any different to the rest of parliament ?
Thinking back to all those expenses stories and cushy directorships and "speaking tours".
Posh duck house or B.Liar tours anyone...?
Ah but we still don't know if they've done Jim the Fish yet...?
@wolfetone - That'd make her 19th, as you'd have to shoe-horn in Rowan Atkinson, Richard E Grant, Jim Broadbend and Hugh Grant in too.
I know the Tardis is bigger on the inside, but even then it'd be a squeeze...
I'm just wondering when the BBC bods will actually learn to count?
1 - Hartnell
2 - Troughton
3 - Pertwee
4 - T Baker
5 - Davidson
6 - C Baker
7 - McCoy
8 - McGann
9 - Hurt
10 - Ecclestone
11 - Tennant
12 - Smith
13 - Capaldi
14 - Whittaker
She's the 14th, not the 13th...?
Or are they trying to ignore either McGann or Hurt?
They're mostly not too different from the original ones (Ecclestone notwithstanding, or indeed not staying):
Hartnell - 3 seasons + a couple of episodes
Troughton - Just under 3 seasons (2 + all except the 2 episodes above)
Pertwee - 5 seasons
T Baker - 7 seasons
Davidson - 3 seasons
C Baker - 2 seasons + 1 episode
McCoy - 3 seasons + start of the TV movie
McGann - TV movie
Hurt - 1 episode
Ecclestone - 1 season
Tennant - 3 seasons + the "gap year" specials
Smith - 3 seasons + 2 specials
Capaldi - 4 seasons
It's only Pertwee and Tom Baker who did long stints, everyone else is mainly 2-3 seasons.
The Corsair anyone (well at least one or two of their regenerations, to get even more geeky...)
Anyway Dr Who's already been there - Matt Smith's companion Rory Williams ( aka Mr Amy Pond) was a male nurse...
No, but with a little effort you could have someone elses instead...
Cold caller spam?
Are you sure you've never been mis-sold PPI or been in an accident recently?
I'd guess a fair percentage may actually have had changing their number as the reason to switch in the first place. Especially if the original had ended up on the various telemarketing cold-call databases that are used to spam us these days (PPI anyone?).
It's always nice to get a "customer" (business or family) who not only doesn't know something, but is also knows that they don't know it and is willing to admit the fact. Almost makes it possible to enjoy your work sometimes...
Brings back memories of a customer of ours (now closed) who used to insist all us support engineers must wear shirt and tie when working on-site.
Not so unusual you'd think, except I work in the semiconductor industry - they insisted we wore shirt and tie underneath our cleanroom suits when installing and setting up (and kicking repeatedly at times) the manufacturing tools we were supporting and installing.
Suffice it to say words were had with HR, and some sense was eventually knocked into the customer's heads before our guys revolted and refused to go on-site.
will be peddled in two flavours: Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Microsoft 365 Business
And there was me thinking Enterprises were businesses, at least outside Star Trek?
I would have advised you to treasure that ignorance, but sadly I'm too late...
What about the unknown knowns, things that theoretically should exist but we don't know yet?
Ah the IoT spatula - perfect for shit stirring...
SO l,ong as you have a decent sized gang of cats (and at least a couple of them are psycho ninja fighters) then intruder cats only break in once (& rapidly flee to lick their wounds)
Umm all cats are psycho ninja fighters. It's just whether they can demean themselves enough to bother to attack, or indeed take any interest at all in mundane items like the property of their human minions.
It's only if said intruder cast takes an interest in their stuff, and indeed if it's stuff they care about (for example the paper bag their latest expensive cat toy came in, as opposed to the toy itself) that things get active.
Somewhat like kids really...
Weren't they some of the ugly buggers in Star Trek a few years back?
...and then install that via a USB stick, one plane at a time.
A T-Mobile spokesperson told The Register in an email at 13:30 BST on 12 June that "all is operating normally". But El Reg spoke with two support staff who confirmed that there are ongoing outages throughout the US.
We're talking a mobile network provider here - all is normal and outages throughout the country could quite easily both describe the situation at any given time...
They're just as scared of the big dog robot as the rest of us are... ;)
They set off your lipstick lovely... ;)
I'd also wonder about EM shielding efficiency, and if anything went adrift the risk of basically subjecting your own vessel's electronics to an EMP burst and toasting your circuits.
They should just have timed the green clouds to coincide with Paddy's Day and all would be well...
Only if you can wrangle them for long enough to get them all in a line without their lasers blinding each other or you...
And for reference, they can just look at the XS-1 space plane and its launch system plus its predecessors and parallel projects like the X-43.
Those were usually slung under the wing of a standard aircraft and released before ignition, but it's a similar concept. Of course the release before ignition was rather crucial unless you wanted to send aforementioned aircraft into a rather interesting if short-lived spin before it hit the dirt hard.
Too young to have been influenced by the Millennium Falcon?
He'll be one-up on the Royal Navy then, given how the beancounters have screwed that one up.
And a slight but rather crucial difference in scale, and also this one may really fly (RIP Lester, we miss you!)
Or even the old spoof hoax one (allegedly) of Powergen Italia that was around for a while...
Kodi 17.2 was also released this morning, including a fix for this issue.
But but but but... it's so much fun to do!
And I think maybe you're mixing up doping with dopey...
Probably the same crowd who insist on the "freedom and flexibility" of wifi connection when their machine never actually leaves their desk, and the boring old Ethernet cable gives them usually at least twice the actual network speed...
Number 5 is alive (and the closest icon available).
Just cut out the middle-man and call it Planety McPlanetface straight away?
Possibly shouldn't reveal this, but when working on-site at a certain major chip maker our company phones are Nokia's of the 3310 ilk (not actual 3310's unfortunately) but ones of similar size and spec and almost similar battery life.
Basically they're about the only phones available these days which do not have cameras built-in, and aforesaid customer has a blanket ban on cameras being taken on-site (ditto our laptops have special screen bezels which completely cover the camera, as temporary things like stickers and tape are not enough for them).
That said I had a 3310 for many years back in the day, and it was a sterling little trooper.
I did, and they didn't.
And when I told them I could remember a world without either mobile phones or the internet, they looked at me like I was a dinosaur.
At least until I pointed out whilst I'm of the generation that grew up without them, I'm also of the generation that invented them (more or less anyway)...
