No, they were made in a factory, sorry, manufacturing facility, just north of Edinburgh... Glen-something. Glenrothes, was it? We visited there as part of a computer course for kiddies run by Herriot-Watt university back in the 80s.
I visited the Apricot factory once.
I didn't think this one was so good. "Age is no guarantee of reliability. Just look at senior management." WTF does that mean? They are older therefore more reliable? Less reliable? What?
And the pain is all in the anticipation of an event anyway. OK, some of it is in the punch the PFY delivers, but resorting to physical violence when simply inducing sufficient paranoia to cause the user to immediately backup 5 fives and therefore run out of space in iCloud or GoogleWhatever or an expensive external HDD...
Far better to get them to dig their own graves.
thank you for flagging that up. That's probably saved me a centimetre of hairline and 16 hours of work when I can't get MemTestGold or an ERP disc or my Win7install bootable USB stick working on a new machine someone's bought.
Rusty Shuttle? Was that the crewman's name? Sounds more like a porn actor.
Oh, I'm sorry. Did I say it was only fit to tow garbage? I meant to say, it's only fit to be towed away AS garbage. Ha ha ha ha!
Or something like Orac.
And it has a cool green glow too! Does it also make a high-tech hum?
Bird brain. There is a reason.
interest a dead parrot.
you could also use trans-cutaneous magnetic stimulation, but the coils are massive. This does sound like a promising bit of technology.
it does stretch a few yards into the tunnels as well, but for free, it's great! And I get better speeds (currently 20meg) on it that I do at home.
Pity you can't re-label the Airline mode switch on your device then. Call it "f* off world" or something.
the WiFi base stations had their geo-locations entered into the various location services's databases. Then Apple's "Find My Friend" app might work to alert you that the person you are waiting in the ticket hall for has just rolled up to the platform, and so on. Trouble is, as the data are crowd sourced and there is not even a whiff of GPS below street level, these access points are not going to end up being included. It could even be useful for the rescue services, lost property etc.
It's great when you rock up at Euston and the Map.app whizzes you backwards and forwards between Manchester, Stockport, Carlisle and London as you pick up signals from the different Virgin trains.
It even picks up non-SSID broadcast WiFi, WiFi with ACLs, any encryption standard...
His knob went blue and dropped off as he refused to pay extra for the tactile pressure safety sensors. The tight fisted wanker.
I'm reminded of that song from around 30 years ago.
I believe the firstly line went...
"Well the members of the Argentine..."
And IIRC it ended with "whipped margarine".
They'll be chasing the Dragon 32 next...
Brings a new meaning to stream playback.
and had no problems.
@AC, obviously you are a connoisseur of the vent du pantalons...
It'll smell like a trump.
They were good, but the plastic presser ring broke too easily. I preferred the Suncom Tac 2.
Which you could take apart and customise with packing pieces if you liked something with less travel.
Well, something along those lines... that's what I told my mum had happened when I got wrist-ache. That and "I've been doing soooooo much homework lately."
Turn on Safari's developer mode and select to return the user agent string for firefox - windows.
I like my rarebit with both pepper and mustard. Does anyone have the code for this using two condiments?
WHILE rare_bit = 1
IF available_bytes >= 1 THEN
IF available_bytes <1 THEN
Facebook is evil.
If SFY win their case, then they can counter-sue the people that sued them for loss of revenue etc. and hopefully get a massive payout which they can use to make their app completely free.
Rubbish. The last set of stones that were added was a patch for the Y1K bug.
You have to start at the bottom...
- several million for IT job cuts.
Quite so! And the crust wastage is unforgivable.
Well you've already destroyed it for one poor pig at least.
Argh! Yes! I'd forgotten that one! Thank you.
he wouldn't have made meat so tasty.
"So emailed him and reminded him and pointed out the failure again today."
He hasn't got it yet.
Sorry. I accidentally googled Google. Mea culpa.
they'll give "Life of Brian" the seal of approval anytime, too?
the country, the entire country, is in violation of Apple's trademarks and copyrights. They won't back down either; seems they haven't learnt from the example of iRaq.
There's nothing finer than a seaside cafe meal of beans, sausage, egg, fried bread, frittered spiced pork and ham, and bacon. Or there's...
*definite infringement there!*
That was the spooky thing. That and the 2kg bundle of willow that arrived by courier this morning.
That El Reg is staffed and patronised ENTIRELY by these clones anyway. Spooky!
So, all the back alleys, footpaths and cut throughs that aren't on Google's maps will slowly become apparent because Android phones will show them in regular use? Cool. Way to go Big Brother! Virtual desire lines.
if it was made clear that in order to cycle on the tow path, one needs a permit from British Waterways?
before it's christened "The headache tablet?"
Paris, because she never has a headache.
