A scientist is composing a similar report on the newly discovered Sol system and its multitude of planets......
All they'll do is put up their prices so their customer pay the fine for them.
Instead, force them to reduce their prices and lock them for x years.
IIRC Century 21 was a Gerry Anderson company. So make your own dummies / puppets joke here :-)
CoSocius - set up from Cheshire West council started this in 2015.
I had one of these briefly:
It almost ticked all the boxes, but was frightfully slow.
I decided to give up on TV when I moved and my new place had no TV aerial.
I filled in the form saying I didn't watch TV, they popped round, they were polite, I was polite. They went away and I've heard nothing since, over a year on.
I always like comparing Planet discoveries with my Frontier Elite map:
A representative from FACT was on the Victoria Derbyshire programme on BBC2 this morning, relating to a morning raid where 5 people were arrested and 700 boxes seized.
In it he said that "streaming was illegal", "Kodi boxes are illegal" and that the police would be looking at the accounts of the 5 arrested and going round and speaking to the buyers.
Watch on iPlayer, scroll on to around 20 minutes in.
Looks terrible on my screen too, please change it back.
"You should also hunt down the episode of "The Nerdist" podcast where they interview Patrick Stewart and he ends up doing the opening intro and various of Picard's stock phrases in a French accent. "
He also did it in a broad Yorkshire accent in an interview with Johnathan Ross (when he had his Saturday morning Radio 2 show)
3 letter usernames are terrible, my school used them. You end up with all manner of duplicates - I was AGI for A Gibson. But as soon as Ashleigh Gibley started she had to be AGI1.
Its just as bad with Smiths, you always end up with more than one sharing the same first initial.
I believe the location doubled up as the Vatican mail railway in the terrible movie Hudson Hawk.
"Instead of flying home, the authors envisage drones hitching a ride on buses, delivery trucks or boats"
Until the bus or truck goes under a low bridge.
Good old Constable Savage could spot a criminal:
While its amusing to knock our American cousins and their "beer", lets not forget that the UK isn't much better, with the best selling "beers" being Stella Artois, Foster's, Carling & Carlsberg.
Totally off topic, but that stock photo made me think about the Asus Eee PC woman. Wonder what she's using now. For those who don't know who I'm talking about:
Prankster puts glasses on gallery floor - and visitors mistake them for art:
A favourite of mine (reminds me of Choplifter or Cyclone on the Spectrum), no idea how it's missed being culled as the TV programme died a death years ago:
Some of the provincial news sites have a massive blue banner on the bottom third of the screen stating "LOVE YOUR LOCAL NEWS?
PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR AD BLOCKER
Did you know that advertising supports local journalism and promotes local businesses? Find out how to turn off your ad blocker."
But if you right click on it and click "BLOCK THIS AD" it disappears!
ZTE were the manufacturer of the hugely popular Blade, AKA Orange San Francisco Android phone, and its successors.
Did quark run a "strip bar"? I thought it was holosuites and Dabo tables. Oh and Chief O'Brien's dartboard.
Talking spiders were in the sequels to Rendezvous with Rama,also featuring humans leaving Earth for a new world.
Maybe it was Groundskeeper Willie's tractor that caused it to appear in Skinner's kitchen?
I think the data is safe, the inbred morons that is ISIS only targets people, not buildings of strategic important.
"By Dawn's Early Light", a 1991 TV movie of the 1983 novel Trinity's Child, by William Prochnau is also worth a watch.
Either that or "I owe you one brain. Love, God"
Aberglas, is this you?
That name's going to be a tad unfortunate where he's going :-)
Last time I went into Maplin it was for a DIN plug for a BBC Micro monitor (yes, they still had them on the shelves a few years back).
When I asked the assistant for directions to where it might be, he thought the BBC Micro was some kind of Freeview box.
I prefer to misquote Nelson from The Simpsons:
"How many Robot butlers will there be"
Bart: "One at first,but he'll train others"
Hopefully not in an I Robot fashion.
Who the fuck downvoted Geoff May's first post?
Show and explain yourself.
Why does anyone who owns a web shopping outfit have to have it branded an "online tat bazaar" by The Reg? Once it just referred to Ebay, now its anything that sells.
I'll only believe it once Marc Singer has pawed his face
What's the betting BBC's iPlayer will do the same this afternoon?
I think that's where IT Technicians or other techy support staff in school need to pick up the ball. Many IT clubs are run by these staff.
"Surely as we elect the government they should follow the will of the people and they should present both sides of the argument to ensure a fair referendum"
Isn't that why Cameron allowed each MP to choose which side they wanted to be on rather than having them toe the party line?
"a triumph for commonsense over idiotic twattery"
says someone who's name is "Harry the Bastard"
I'm buying the domain name toto.africa
Its not Weasel, its Weisel :-)
Did anyone see this article and think of "The Long Mars" by Terry Pratchett?
They did such a good job with the "moon landings" its hard not to :-)
As this is mainly Concorde chat, this is a timely link to the late, great George Kennedy:
I've always had a good word for Lenovo, I've still got a bunch of their old N200 and N500 laptops running here and doing a good job.
But I had my fingers well and truly burnt with a batch of B5400s last year. Out of twelve, three now have failed DVD drives (all just after twelve months, and its not the drive but something on the mobo), one motherboard that went after a week, not to mention the silly rectangular power connector.
For me I found that when Bing Maps started featuring OS maps, and had the same kind of control as Google to scroll around the map, zoom in and out, was the reason I stopped using Streetmap.
Many years ago UCI cinemas took a direct debit payment several months after I'd seen the film. However, as a goodwill gesture they gave me two free cinema tickets, which was the same price as the DD.
What's a "hung of junk"? And is the swastika supposed to be that way in the photo?
There are some amazing recent photos of abandoned Fukushima here:
