Why not Orange T? Pekoe?
Ah!!! I noticed this on an old and shaky machine. Coupled with a failure of McAfee to re-install and oddities with the Microsoft Audio Device driver, I decided a wipe clean and up-haul to Windows 7 was required.
Very clever, M$, very clever.
Those damned wheeled bags. Not that the bags themselves are bad, but the people dragging them around... when they turn 90° straight across your path especially at the top of an escalator... RAAAAARRRRRR!!!!
I wonder which officer is going to be the first to get done for sneakily slurping the contents of their girlfriend's/ boyfriend's/ husband's/ wife's phone, now that it's been made so easy and self-service?
Paris, because of the potential for a ruinous affair.
Oh jeez... I guess he's changing his name to Chan then, rather than lumbering her with the tongue numbing Priscilla Zuckerberg?
I'm surprised that they didn't use any kind of special security screws on the casing. Also, it must take a lot of power to burn up those chips, so there's no way that the drive can have an integral battery to enable the physical destruction completely autonomously.
Of course. Because thanks to the government you can no longer get into the school at the end of the road any more, only one five to ten miles away.
Did you see Charlie Booker's guide to making an episode of Horizon? I was ROFPML.
Konnie Huq. Hmmmmmmm!
"On BBC1, they replace it with a re-run of some blithering daytime TV classic - zero cost"
Oh noes! More "Crap in the Attic"? Pass me the remote.
He reported from Treasure Trap (Peckforton Castle) too. I polished his helmet for him.
There's not much for the 15-19 sector. They should take a leaf from Challenge's book and relaunch the 6-formers version of University Challenge, Blockbusters. Plus points if they dig up poor, dead Bob Holness to host.
Very true. Thatcher and her spin-team sold the CSA to the voter with such phrases as "dead beat dads" and "jack-the-lads bed hopping around the council estates breeding like rabbits without a care for the cost"
All well and good until they ACTUALLY put it into practise and went after any father with a job where the mother claimed any kind of income benefit whether they were paying for the child or not, forcing the absent parent to pay not only for the child, but 100% of the mother's outgoings as well. Hence my pay packet of £800 a month suddenly having £650 a month taken out of it before I saw it and could use it to pay my £480 a month mortgage, food and bills. Letters from the bank about not paying the mortgage etc etc.
Just don't get me started.
Doesn't help that sweet manufacturers devise ever more ingenious boiled sugar dispensers, some of which look like those rosette hearing aid battery dispensers.
Ding dong Dell,
*snigger* yeah, I know. Maybe it's just musos... mind you, they failed the practical test as well. They could tell a guitar lead from a headphone lead, but failed to identify the TOSLINK and XLR cables, and had variable success identifying the ISA sound card.
Of the three older candidates, one was a 32 yr old female who just about passed the practical but failed on the classical music theory test, the 35 yr old man couldn't tell what any of the cables or cards were and the guy we did employ in the end was just 25, the only one trained in the USA, he knew what e.g. legato and adagio meant, could restring a guitar (he even asked left or right handed), knew Reason(tm) inside out, a total f***ing musical genius. I jumped through hoops to get him into the country - thankfully the evidence I could provide to the home office, including the offers to install pirated software on college PCs, proved that there were no suitable UK candidates for the post. I was well pleased to have him on the team.
I once chaired interviews for a music technician at a FE college. 12 candidates rolled in, 9 of them sat there and told me how they could get their hands on e.g. Propellerhead software for nothing, "which would surely help our budget 'cos colleges don't have much money, right?". The interviewer to my right was busy making notes with his FAST pen he picked up at a recent conference...
These 9 were all under 25; the other 3 were older, by the way.
I mean, does it advertise itself as a roaming network able to accept all UK carriers? Won't that mean a SIM upgrade? How will this work?
centred around Perl?
It's odd the effect a ring-road blockage has around Watford. Backs up all the way onto the M1 and the M25 if Exchange Road is closed for more than 30 minutes. But how do you fix Bushey Arches?
Will Paris be warm this weekend?
at providing an enterprise service.
Use 'em to feed the leopards. Throw 'em in the arena to go up mano-e-garra against a lion or a tiger.
that the BBC have stopped making Spooks. I mean, one of those tasty, tasty MI6 lady agents sneaking a data stripping virus into a hostile embassy party dressed as a maid or a stripper...this could have given them ideas.
I hope it's waterproof.
Is the base-pair spacing compatible?
I understand it perfectly. But then, I do IT in a biomedical research laboratory.
Mine's the one with the Kaled mutant in the pocket.
Possibly you are. Other commentators are quite right - for the die hard fans of the series, the whole thing was too fast paced, too many changes to the text were done (that's where much of the humour is to be found) probably because some Hollywood rulebook decreed that a 2 second pause is too long in a movie whereas you need that pause to let the audience get the joke about "What's so wrong with being drunk?"
For a fan of DA, this movie is just bad bad bad. Imagine the cast of Glee performing a dramatisation of Terry Pratchett's "The Colour of Magic", directed by M. Night-Shamalamadingdong.
Flares are still in fashion in Noo'cassal, man!
Direct power generation from wind was never going to be a good solution. They should be using the wind turbines to pump water into storage dams for hydro-electric generation.
when was the last time you saw a 5V battery, huh?
And you missed Jessop's "Hover Pod" flying tripod.
The wedding video, in order to qualify as worst film ever, should be called:
"For Vow and For Never"
Producer - Ed Wood
Director - Jonathan Frakes
Costume - Tim Burton
Cinematography - M. Night Shyamalan
Score - Danny Elfman
The Groom - Mos Def
The Bride - Gwyneth Paltrow
The Matron of Honour - Tilda Swinton
The Best Man - Jack Black
And they may find they end up with one less customer. I don't care. Banks are ten a penny.
And I don't care if I get downvoted for doing so. I don't ever use that facility, and I don't want to.
That's just mental!
I believe that it's BBC2 that goes off and ITV moves onto BBC2's frequency, so ITV's old frequency is then clear for the new MUX, then...
it's all very complex, but the fact that they HAVE to keep ITV going for as long as possible, above and beyond the vastly superior BBC2 programming, just gives me more cause to lower my head in shame.
As in Swordfish, Sneakers, Firewall...
Qucik rub with a Brillo pad, and bingo! Rose tinted spectacles.
Now stop granny bashing and get back to work!
Pretend to be from Microsoft calling because "their server has received a message from my computer that it has been infected with a virus and that I need special software to remove it".
The first few times I just hung up, but recently I've taken to asking them to hold while I turn the computer on, then play the Apple start-up chime at them. "Hang on... Microsoft you say???"
