>> glorified microscope
I think the real work is in the proprietary software that analyses the sample for sperm count and movement.
>> Well I read the first half then gave up as I don't give a shit.
What a shame. You missed the oh-so-funny screenshots in the second half. And the video of me going to the toilet.
You will also have stolen a robot. I am told that stolen smartphones are rarely resold intact any more, thieves preferring to have them dissembled before selling on the more valuable reusable components. The same could go for stolen robots.
"symphonise" is intentional. It's a verb. If I'd written "symphonies", the sentence would lack a main verb and therefore not be a sentence at all.
I know what you mean but I wasn't in the mood to run around requesting permission from hundreds of people who might be included in a landscape video.
That's not my bag.
$400 if you pay up-front for the non-existent model. 600 if you wait for a real one without manufacturing snags.
>> What means "portrait" and "landscape
These terms derive from photography. Some developers, including Adobe, also use the more sensible" vertical" and "horizontal".
Your Nexus in landscape mode is only horrible because the on-screen keyboard is in the way. Now imagine you kept full-screen graphics, then had a smooth slide-out keyboard of physical keys of a similar size to those on your laptop keyboard but closer together. Lovely.
They don't open until 8am. No good to me.
Is there a book that tells me what "Upon really don't know" means too?
I'll be the one sitting next to you, farting repeatedly for three hours with rancid odours. It's a medical thing, though, so that's OK, right? Just like your sniffing.
People keep referring to Year of the Rooster here in the UK, despite "rooster" being the American name. So I try to correct everyone by pointing out that it is the Year of the Cock.
"I'm a dragon," I'll say. "Are you a cock?"
Next thing, you'll be telling me pizzas aren't Italian.
I still receive invitations to attend meetings for a project I stopped working on a year ago. They use Outlook.
I don't think Planet Earth was showing that week.
This reminds me of the time when I still had an office in London's trendy Hoxton and the performing rights people rang up aggressively demanding money. They seemed convinced that since it was an office and my employees were working in it, we would by default have a radio blaring out somewhere. I can only imagine that they think magazine publishing companies are run like motor garages, with our editors and salesteam walking around in oil-stained overalls and spanner in hand, while singing along to the latest hits on the radio.
When I told the woman on the phone that we didn't have a radio, she didn't even bother to threaten a surprise inspection visit: she told me outright that I would be fined. I said "go ahead" and put the phone down. Never heard a thing from them again.
Tom Tom do GPS fitness watches, and are typical of those that cannot desensitise when being worn on the right wrist instead of left.
Not at all. I can export all data to XLS, CSV and Sage. My provider adds features frequently and has an API that links into other SaaS products from other developers.
The free version supports a handful of two-step workflows, which is all my local micro-gym needs. But don't tell him I said so.
I can be whatever I want to be. I learnt that off Spongebob Squarepants.
Gawd, I'm reminded of the weeks of hassle I had at one newspaper company in 2010 simply to persuade someone high up in the IT department to allow me - and only me out of thousands of employees and contractors - access to a Dropbox account from a company PC.
The legs are stable and very strong: they are composed of multiple layers glued together, about 1.5cm thick. I admit it's a challenge to ensure a taut fit when slotting them in place without creasing any other part or crushing the corners of the slots. But as my mini video demonstrates, the forward-backward stability might be like a rock but side-to-side is a bit creaky.
The compass icon idea was ripped off Netscape Navigator but Apple knew by then Netscape was too irrelevant to fight back.
>> Three guys got vomitted on by some poor woman.
I hear that some men will pay for that sort of thing.
I assure you if there's another Scottish referendum to quit the UK, I will be first in line to apply for a Scottish passport.
I'm a vegetarian.
Not hot enough, sorry, and I can't afford it.
>> And we talk about réalité virtuelle, intelligence artificielle and objets connectés
Not at that meeting. The presenter kept referring to "ee-oh-tay" until someone had to stop her and ask what she was talking about.
And if it had been a podcast it would give you eye strain?
I'm finding Chrome surprisingly well-behaved on the Mac, given what a resource hog it has usually been under Windows.
Bloody hell, AT LAST! I was beginning to wonder why I bother with these nerd gags if no-one gets them.
Thanks for the tip on Swinsian but I don't use iTunes for playing music. I use it to sync my iOS devices, and I have lots of them because of my work. I could do it all via iCloud but I'd run out of space up there immediately and be forced to pay Apple for more storage etc... and STILL have to use iTunes to manage it all.
I take it you are the co-respondent to Brad Pitt's suit?
You suspect wrong. I know what disinterested means and it is the word I intended. It means impartial: the audience was impassive because they didn't care one way or another. If they were bored, they would not have been siting still.
It's no odder than "defusing" a punch-up.
>> modern shower frames
This guy did exactly as you said. The water poured into the seams on the interior, trickled into the screw holes and soaked into the wall. A week later, the paint on the other side of the wall was bubbling up and flaking away, along with the plaster.
Would you rather I reported my progressive fat loss in terms of specific density?
It's not my description, it's theirs. Go to their website and see for yourself.
It claims to tally how many steps you climb through the day. I don't think it's necessary to leave the ground without the assistance of stairs.
I'd buy my tech gear at Primark if they sold it.
There are loads of 28in waist trousers and skinny fittings at Top Man. Jeans, chinos, whatever.
My regime is not limited to putting on a Fitbit and smiling inwardly. I didn't want to bore you all further with my fitness regime, this not being a Daily Mail "I used to be a fat c*nt" article.
I go to my local gym for cardio and do a lot more walking generally. The boss at my gym, an ex-army beefcake with shoulder muscles the size of footballs, is now nagging me to increase my weight-training so that I don't end up scrawny.
Her naughty computer is a Mac. Linux is out of the question due to compatibility issues with the Word and Excel files she is sent. Don't tell me there are Word-compatible applications on Linux - I've head it all before, they are not fully compatible. They send the formatting crazy, reflow the text, tear tables apart and balk at docx files.
