Why so many down votes near the top?
What about the Computers Often Make People Quite Angry advert from John Cleese?
Even against Dorchester?
Interesting, AS90 has longer range, but Challenger 2 gets closer and more personal.
However would anything be able to stop a Challenger 2?
I just hope it would aim for trump even if it was not in the way!
If they run in front of vehicle - squish
So they can have 5G
Terrestrial TV lost some to 4G
Was that the one killed off by Peckham Spring jokes?
Er no thanks
Managed to avoid until now, and she is a bit old to pop another
And now old enough not to matter.
Wouldn't have minded another either, the current bunch are all now legally adults. Would also improve the future gene pool a little more. (Well oldest is doing a science degree)
I think you will find it is Spain in general.
All teh missing people and stolen children.
They keep telling everyone they are offended by doughnuts and under no circumstances ties bags of them to Mosques.
>> I think a significant proportion of those people would be in the bit of the Venn diagram that covers >>"christian" AND "has a sense of humour".
Not a born again or evangelical then.
But most likely a CofE, probably clergy.
If I had to get stuck with any of that group, I'd prefer the clergy, come across the others too many times.
Would you believe that some people think the Old Testament is accurate and not a bunch of myths?
I thought this was the correct response.
Too many self important twerps clogging it up.
One of my tests for a religion is.
Can you find their local heads in the pub?
If yes, good.
If no, forget it.
At least you often find Vicars in them.
Can't upvote you enough.
Am I alone in seeing all those flashy so called doughnuts (eg Krispy Creme) and thinking just no, diabetes on a plate, sickly, no thanks.
But a jam doughnut, perfection.
Don't think so. Everyone knows what a Hooker is. Some people remember Stanley of course, but most people seem to think of the sweaty Rugby player.
But then there was the wierdness of a boy at school who liked football, many thought it strange.
I was useless as too shortsighted.
And what about the Props and Fly Half?
I saw a list and thought that the red team had some pretty shit ones.
A creationist, so they let the mentally impaired stand for president as well as sexual assulters.
I was surprised the Bush was not chosen.
Blue team, I can only remember the very old chap (Bernie Sanders) and Hillary Clinton.
Was a worse selection than we had early this year with May Corbyn and the other chap.
Google Chrome is popular because users are pushed into it by every time they visit a Google site.
Also because a lot of users have been conditioned to use search rather than the address.
Sorry but this irks me, you KNOW you are going to site X, type in the address rather than search for it.
Gong www.bbc.co.uk is quicker than searching for it and clicking to it.
Personally I just go Bookmarks and there it is right at the top. So much easier.
But then I do know someone who uses a sat nav every trip, including work to home (1/4 mile)
52 ESR and CTR here and not moving until I have to.
Why would I have to look up stuff like you suggest when I already have the menu?
I have enough things to do without having to learn new GUIs all the time.
Well my oldest ever and my newest ever are both compatible with roads.
My oldest would have got hardened valve seats if it was not so difficult to get spares so was off the road a little too much (dead manufacturer - Rootes) and I could not afford 2 cars.
But they all had similar user interfaces.
Wheel in front, indicator & lights on left stalk, wipers on right stalk. right pedal go, left if there clutch, middle or left if two brake. Gear levers in middle, near hand brake.
Yet under all this all were different, one chassis, rest monocoque, all gearbox behind engine, all to back, one to front. 2 live axle rear, 1 live axle front, rest all independent. 1 tractor juice, rest petrol, 1 turboed, 2 hot cammed, rest as is. One carbed, one unit injectored, rest MPFI. 4, 5 and 6 cylinders. Inline and Vee.
Point is all are different, (apart from the similar to each other GM V cars), but are similar to drive with similar controls.
We used to have this with computers, with the WIMP environments, you could go between completely different OSes and not be surprised. But now MS wants cars to have foot operated steering and nose operated brakes. The "equivalent to" icon is the equivalnent of hiding the steering wheel in the glove box and having to fit it every corner, for the car to then automatically put it away again.
I think they changed the specification of mains so that all EU voltages were covered including 240v
But I want them there all the time, not messing with alt!
My spelling aghhh!
Select not delect
BBC News not new
1) Must have File Edit menu with bookmarks and history.
I curently click on bookmarks then delect the site I want eg BBC new, Google Groups, The Register. I have no idea what a lot of the little icons mean, but I do have O level Engish so can read.
The monkey face for Grease Monkey is obvious, but what is the equivalent to sysmbol there for?
2) Square tabs.
Neat and tidy, do not waste space, looks sensible, there is a reason been in WIMP since for ever, they work.
Absolutely essential these days is some form along with.
4) Script control
Some web sites can kill the core, this stops it handling, I use NoScript
5) User scripts
I use Greasemonkey to remove googleconsent shite from blocking my screen as the domain lives in hosts, not I am NOT giving them consent, also kills off adblock warnings when configured.
But they sometimes get bosses they like!
FLying Taxis and no mention of Bruce Willis
That BT is one of the few with FTTC.
That BT can be among cheapest.
That my wife keeps using a BT email address when I have set up one on my own server for her.
To avoid problems.
I used to suffer with chilblains on my feet when young.
Found a cure in the drinks cabinet.
Yes been having small amounts of alcohol for years and never get them now.
Yes had Whisky, Vodka and Lager when young, not done me any harm.
And I am able to have a small drink and stop.
I am still suspectable as I almost got some recently after 3 days no alcohol.
Leader of free world?
Isn't that Her Majesty?
Does lots of streaming at I an also shoot Aliens & Robot Dinosaurs in the face
So you found where the real BOFH works.
I bloody hate the things, especially the road sign ones
I used to love shooter fan XBots (as opposed to gamers with 360s) saying how great the dancing games were because they were Microsoft.
NOT because they were good, not because they were dance games, but because anything Xbox was automatically better than anything else.
But not really great for games, same as the old Eyetoy, good to trial then useless.
Biggest game issue was lack of buttons.
Nintendo had it right with their motion controller being standard controller.
Sony messed up with not enough game support.
Want to play a shooter game with motion controls?
Wii had Goldeneye and CoD and many others
PS3 had Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 (and Portal 2 and a few others)
Yes big difference in quality there!
The technology had its place, but for gaming, not yet.
>>onboard Diesel Electric.
I bagsie the 2 x Napier D18-25
Perhaps it should be e-Fluent
As to calculators, sorry but calc.exe does the job for me
Our next software package needs to be able to run on other peoples servers (some call it the cloud).
And be platform agnostic (currently optimised for 7, but will also work on XP). Will be adding Linux and possibly AppleBSD
In a Manor
Better let the Severn Valley know you want to ride your bike in the cab of one of their Manors.
They will laugh at you
Unless you mean a building, but then Dougie Lampkin rides around Goodwood House
Killed a driver and wrote off a whole train
Can be more dangerous than drunk driving, but no one seems to care.
You can drive along however you like, just do not exceed the "number on a stick" or the cameras will get you.
Thing is tiredness does catch up, you think you are fine, then you start to nod off. Very dangerous.
Nearly happened to me 36 years ago, nearly fell off my bike.
Last time I looked it was still 7.
The thing is when it comes to games people go to proper sites like Steam or battle.net
What is Windows 10 to do with network interface card?
BMG a Sony owned US company off its own back rather than Sony the Japanese electronics company.
They did a lot of harm to peoples PCs and the parent companies name.
Most PC games are on Windows 7 as that is where the market is. Even XP is still supported with older games.
The major games market place will also let you know if compatible.
PC games come from sites like Steam.
So we are a bit stuffed.
Was in a set my wife had to transcribe, We joked about this one.
Is this real or is this a spoof?
