On the plus side... if they can't do the taxes then maybe we have a shot at immortality after all....

Ok I'm done...
Despite all the hate against win8 I found it worked much better than Vista on the same machine. Though circumstantial I doubt I'm the only one. Win 7 though looks to the next xp and really it was a massive system pack so it's still sort of with us (see the kernal versions Vista 6, win7 6.1 and win8 6.2)
Using Facebook to organise a meeting of a group of close friends... that must really mess the figures up.
(Having recently partook in stag do organised via Facebook and arranging a whiskey meet up for this weekend I can attest that both of these have/Will improve(d) my mood no end though drinking May also have played a part..)
This is most likely the case a reasonable assumption but assumptions cam wrong and the simple reporting of figures can give implications when given without clarifcation and would probably require more reading than in currently prepared to give it of idle curiosity .
Dad to hear of the number of accidents and fatalities but you have to wonder how many of those where human error rather than design flaws? In the same way that very popular cars have a high number of deaths involved with them does not make them inherently accident prone or unsafe.
Enquiring minds and all that
Chaos is bad for business.
So how do you explain the daliymail.co.uk? Or fourchan, they both thrive and survive on chaos surely?
(Also the chaos that is the commentard community is a big draw for me personally, helping me view ads for the register directly but that's my own bias simply explained)
That said... Don't feed the trolls....
of abysml water masses
The waters not that bad surely?
Mines the yellow sou'esters with the pocket radio set to the shipping forecast...
I remember the wings game on amiga having a reference to just such a problem and advising not to fly just after a hearty breakfast...
Drive on the pavement
I'm a bit unsure what the correct answers would be anyway.
That's easy... admit you like to grab em' by the pussy.
Mines the one with the tickets to Canada...
As well as 6 points on your licence in the UK unless you stop the car and turn off the engine before operating the phone.
That said my car has Bluetooth surely the car itself could be used for this sort of thing?
Apple pro users wanted some thing so compact?
What was so wrong with the old g5 power Mac/ mac pro case?
Quite a few since they were instrumental in developing WiFi (including some of the first patents which still form the fundamentals of making WiFi work) though admittedly it was byproduct of looking for black holes with radio telescopes
I think they're looking for that same zeal that Mac users have but they seem to be missing the point. An OS is a tool. It is not meant to be loved worshipped and adored, it's just meant to work nothing more and certainly nothing less.
And as for Bieber...no just no
They can have the wine.. Its the liquor cabinet I'm worried about.
No David ford (Requiem)
Every administration blames through one from last year.
Waiting to hear when LOHAN will get launched
I think you're thinking of a NAS same letters but less advanced.
Of which only about 5% are in prison or on parole. That's a hell of a lot of people who really probably shouldn't be in that data base.
It also doesn't state if that includes foreign nationals or passport photos or clearly denies those either.
shed more light on how strong forces works I thought we were talking particles not photons?
Mines the one with the black hole Ineed the pocket....
And I thought my 4 year old daughter was bad (she uses about a third over a day)
Outlook had never been good.....well not since they used word to render html in it anyway
Bullshit a bullshiter....
More like the family name is concentrated in Yorkshire (as in there's less outside than in. Happens when you can track the name back to one individual).
Hey have a name like Dave Gorman? There's at least 52 of them about...
I also know my own name is rare but there's at least 5 that live within 50 miles of me(one owns a fish and chip restaurant that I keep meaning to try out).
It looks like you're trying to welcome a new robotic overlord, would you like some help with that?
Also.... how well would this bot behave to insults?
Paris because she probably still smarter
Or how I learned to love the bomb....
Want to keep your data out of the hands of the yanks? Remote desktop is the answer!
(Yes I'm aware they can be hacked too. Irony alert and all that but at least you don't have to hand it over at the border and your local laws tend to frown on unauthorised access*
*subject to your local laws natch.)
That if blockchains are compute and network intensive that as more data is added it becomes uneconomical to continue to hold onto the data? Especially if the data is rapidly changing as well as increasing in size (I thought that was one of the limitations of bitcoin that it was of a finite size for the initial data that the blockchain revolves around?) Surely then if it's in a constant state of flux and increasing in size the overheads would become exponential?
I might however be totally wrong in any of those assumptions so I'm happy to be corrected.
I'll ask the wife......
Mines the white lab coat with the durex I the pockets.
*Glides past with minutes to spare*
And let's not speak of this again.....
Was a HTC desire z. A smart with a nice keyboard to boot. Just a shame they stopped making them because they were too useful to make a new one for a niche market (same with just about all truly different android mobes).
I've still got mine too but they batteries are shot so it lasts enough to start but that's about as good as it gets.
Which makes me wonder just what it sounded like undamaged... enquiring minds and all that.
In my defence, I was trying to type out the response on my way into work this morning on the bus and missed that one from the auto correct (it's hard enough adding the link in).
Come on reg - let us add icons in the mobile view (since the full site's font is tiny on a mobile)
It's been far too long since I read such a contemptuous article from el reg. Almost back to the good old days of getting put on the naughty list for attempting to inform lord jobs how to say words. Available in the archieves for those of a disbelieving nature.
Now on that note.... get of my lawn! *grumble, grumble*
Mines the one with the werthers ordinals in the pocket.
I've been doing web deving for getting on 10 years (on and off... there was the liquor merchant job for a year that gave me a different perspective and actively encouraged drinking on the job) and as a generalist jobs were pretty much static with not much head room for pay increases.
Cue 6 months ago I changed to UI development on Java (from ASP/ASP.NET/.NET, a flirt with PHP and starting to tinker with node) and it's been the best decision I've made in a long time. Doubled my pay (seriously how often does that sort of opportunity come up?) and i'm enjoying working again as part of team rather than being a dogs body trying to cover everything. In the meantime ontop of UI/Front end duties I've been tinkering with Java as well and have been supported by other team members to learn more as well as being massively surprised with the volume of modern tooling that works well (mostly..YMMV) with Java considering it's vintage (I'm using it for web development, anything over 3 years is usually considered worthy of museums..apart from IE6/7/8/9/10.. there's a special place in hell reserved for that instead).
So yes, anyone asks, Java. Everything else can be figured out along the way, and I truly wish I'd been taught it sooner.
Lucky for you....
Last time I went to india was when they introduced face to face interviews for visas. Bradford had the local surgery for this and it was open for 4 hours only. Cue massive queues and travel agents booking in 50 at a time.
In the end had to drive down to Nottingham at 5 In the morning to get a good spot (we weren't the first inline) and a ban of more than 4 visas at once enacted we finally got that sorted.
If they're not cabbies they sure as hell look like them up here in warmest west Yorkshire...(for the record all taxis and private hire have to have a registered number, show credentials and provide other identification when asked by a fare. I've seen these all been carried by uber cabs. Henceforth I shall stick with calling them a cabbie under the duck quacking rules of simplicity. )
If these drivers have a tenuous grasp of the English tongue *slippy and spit covered as it is* how do they even hold a UK driving licence that should be the barest minimum qualification for being a cabbie, no?
You all forget that uber is special flower, a bastion of the sharing economy (what's yours is mine and what's mine is mine also...) and as such laws to protect drivers/passengers/anyone that isn't uber should be ignored by us.
And if uber can't ignore them then they'll be sad and annoyed and throw toys of the of the pram because we should be allowed to do things how we want because we're disruptive like that.
Maybe one day uber will grow up enough to swallow their pride but I'm not holding my breath
That lobbiests were pretty much the very essence of bribery?
I mean how many times have we heard of a high level case like this that didn't involve lobbiests?
Enquiring minds and all that.
They don't but marketers saw something shiny d and demanded it.
Pretty sure there's whole years of dilbert comics dedicated to this very issue.
That reminds me of a FIAT billboard from the 80's:
Designed on computer
Built by robots
Often with the ammendment in spray paint:
Driven by a moron.
My phone can do WiFi calling. If the lags can get WiFi then this tool can be neatly gotten round (or use a voip service like Skype ect. ) then what? Legal calls to monitor voip calls?
Those who live near a prison? Would they end being asked all the time to account for their phones? (Armley jail in Leeds for example has a wall next to private houses) you'd have to be very careful to ensure it captures only phones inside the designated areas.
Just you wait till a power failure requires the room to restart.
Dust, noise... (smoke even one time)... and that's before the day to day rats nest of cables strung across the room and floor on top of the stacked late 90s hp laser jet printers.
Had to dig out my email password since add with others I use it for accessing Google services and occasionally testing sending emails to a Google account.
All pc based sign insurance worked just done but had to redo the phone. I could be that the phone level cookies got expired on masse and that's what caused it but I'm not holding my breath for a quick (if at all) explanation from Google.
