C'est un honey trap.
A Paris Cabaret story.
Obi-wan was young, and needed the money.
That could have bad reapercussions
Why, that's just enough time to do a Kessel run.
Your ass will be laminated!
Intuition is no proof. What concrete evidence do you have that you exist?
A leaf on the wind might interrupt things :P
Ah, these hubris mechanisms, they're known to be unreliable. Regular applications of humble pie should keep them in balance.
The voting public who got fleeced?
Now we just need to rescue Howlin' Mad
Frequently bought together:
Crate of skin lotion.
So *that*'s what the fuchs says.
I'm reminded of an episode of Outer Limits, where a curious robot kills a cat.
Does that make him the Big Kahuna Burgermeister?
You were asking the salesman how much you could get if you traded me in..
Concorde's 13th fuel tank was labelled 12A.
When you see them in Silicon Heaven.
I am a Frenchman.
I got a very early version of Linux, which did indeed fit onto one floppy (where are you now, Bryce?)
and for the beardy-cardigans, it was brilliant, small and fast etc. But we are an endangered species, and to compete with desktop Windows, the trilobite gradually evolved into the Diplodocus that is Ubuntu and its siblings. I agree that some of the spirit has been lost, and I would prefer a distro that would start minimal, and you could add things as apt. And also have a button for 'install everything'
How hard can it be? </Clarkson>
Got to be at least a 50UU
Not forgetting the TSR that went with it, FDREAD ;-)
Normal DD format 9 sectors/80 tracks would give 720K. An Atari ST disk typically had 10 sectors/82 tracks, giving 820K for not much effort. An Amiga could shoehorn 1.1Mb onto the same disk.
And +1 for 5 1/4's being amazingly robust. I once had some posted to me, where the postie had folded them in half to get the envelope through the letterbox. They still worked.
I say we fire the plasma ray from orbit, just to be sure.
Royal Mint Sauce?
Dr Watney is sciencing his sh1t out of this place to grow spuds, so making vodka is one small step for drunkind.
and I bet it doesn't weigh anything. And it's wireless.
Yes, that would put him in the Danger Zone.
If you're not comfortable with the terminology, then chalk it up as a support ticket for the universe.
The mos is always greener on the other side of the gate.
Well it's certainly no moon.
What's the worst that could happen?
All well and dandy, until the colonists declare independence.
It could happen..
You're absolutely right, we need some proper classic literature.
Cue 'The Millers Tale' re-enactment.
"..except not if it's a Galaxy Note."
A real announcement on a recent flight.
Now that's one turd worth polishing.
Typical. Haynes do manuals for 5 different kinds of starship, but not for my car.
No, it's so you can wear airpods without embarrasment.
When the Mykonosoft salesman told the crew the price of the support contract, they made him walk the plank.
Every - but *every* - gig I've had since leaving uni has had some kind of clause such as 'These are your contracted hours. You may be required to perform duties outside of these hours. This will be unpaid, and with no TOIL.'
You only learn this on the day you start, after you may have already gone to the expense of moving to another town etc. You sign it, or you don't get paid.
Also: 'Any work you do is ours. This includes work done outside the office, in your own time, and on your own equipment.'
Actually a 6502.
Ooh, we used to dream of a 256k video card. My first PC was an Atari PC3 (possibly the only XT-class machine with a 102 key layout) with CGA/EGA. Still compatible enough so I could do raster bars by sending values to port 3D8 timed with the hsync, and play samples through the motherboard speaker with timed interrupts.
Had a C64 as well, does it show? ;-)
There exists a retro band called 'Attribute Clash and the Rubber Keys' :-)
