"I used to visit this site to laugh with El Reg, now I laugh at you."
No, you didn't.
" "Pastafarian is not actually a religion. Rather it is a philosophy that mocks religion.""
Replace Pastafarian with any other religion and see what happens.
"Digital interface would be fingers poked in eyes surely"
Not if the digits are tightly packed...
"My I make make my fist available to your face?"
"but id much rather be blowing stuff up on Just Cause 3."
Cause Windows is a toy OS.
Where's the whiny manchild icon?
You can pull a caravan with your moped?
"At the very least we'll be ready for a big push when Microsoft follows Digital into self-inflicted oblivion."
And people mourn Digital going.
you mean- ook ook ook ook ook ?
"it is approximately the same risk that someone has when they do an every day task such as driving a car."
Well, if it ain't safe to have a drink, it ain't safe to go to work. I quit!
That, according to pterry* IS a particle accelerator- and seeing as it is chock full of knobs, could be called a Large Hardon Collider...
*Good Omens, + Neil Gaiman
The Future is here, and it is Chinese.
"Siri- what is Windows 10?"
Perhaps the Heavy water was damp?
Terrrrrsa May could pay for it, and claim it back on expenses?
Check your Government.
It seems that it does have Win 10.
Make of that what you may.
" me vomiting whilst a crewmate (or rather, flight attendant) pulls down my trousers and injects a syringe of anti-nausea medication into my buttock."
And people think a vegetarian option on air flights is progress.
How much extra would you pay for this service?
Tucking into waistband after passing over collar and tying a good old Windsor knot.
Stops the tip curling up, like Dilbert's... tie.
To the Moralist, all the human body is disgusting.
"So MSFT aren't allowed intellectual property rights?"
No, MSFT aren't allowed to own others intellectual property rights. Nor dictate them.
See! Who said the US never won anything?
Any decent tech capable of interstellar flight should have a usable lifetime measured in thousands of years- alien tech doubly so. Anything less, probably MoD spec'ced...
2016 should see 250 million devices running away from Windows 10
"There's no argument to be had. systemd is a pile of shit, end of."
systemd is a GIANT pile of shit, end of.
Apart from anything else- you are paying the same for half the service- if that.
The last feeble excuse for using Word over OO or LO!
- to trademark a grimace for the forthcoming TV series 'Ow! My balls!' ?
Red Three standing by!
Only if it's Adolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.
That is all!
DO fuck off in fact.
If you're not part of the solution, then the acid bath is not strong enough.
Please die off and free the press.
Extra donations if systemd is buried with them.
"ANORAK IS GREAT!"
Tizer is the work of Stan (sic). Weak Lemon Drink is the only true brew!
"In the U.S., that would be referred to as "butt trumpet"."
Might I suggest that The Donald should now be referred to as The Butt Trumpet?
Is your child not obsessed by 1D? (other flash-in-the-pans are available)
Does your child prefer University Challenge to Strictly?
Has your child expressed a dislike for Windows 10?
Can your child count? In hexadecimal?
If you answered yes or what?? to any or all of these questions, then s/he's probably a danger to the Powers that Be.
Expect a knock at the door citizen- you're all due for ReEd.
A Trilobite would make a better president...
Trump resembles manbearpig, at least in the hair region.
Well Allah sure won't, now.
And that is Darwinism, in the raw.
"No need for the government to pay anything..."
No need for me to buy anything either. I'd rather do without.
"Remember: the government has no problems making all of us buy new computers/phones/etc"
Only if they are willing to pay for them- otherwise, no sale. Owning this stuff is not compulsory- yet.
New, compromised shit, doubly so.
"Atheism is about a desperate need to believe there is no god"
No- no more than baldness is a belief that hair does not exist. There is no desperation in disinterest.
Sorry, but bollocks.
If you say that, for instance Santa does not exist, this does not mean that you 'belive' santa does not exist.
It just means that, as far as you are concerned, there is no Santa.
Belief does not enter into it. If there are no tomatoes, and, when asked, you say' I believe there are no tomatoes', then there are NO TOMATOES and no amount of coercion will make them appear, just because you used the word 'believe' in the state of tomato existence.
So with gods. Atheists don't NEED them, so don't care. Agnostics are arse-covering at best.
"Also, why did you build your house in the middle of the Pacific?"
Well, it was called Tracey Island. Do you realise what you have done...?
Calzone- in a can!
I can't unsee it now either...
Does this cover all Windows products vs users
i.e Microsoft's version of 'You're holding it wrong'
Mad for IoT!
