to get in the obligatory "Mac users are w*nkers" joke?
It's interesting that those of us who live outside Manchester, but work in Manchester and socialise in Manchester don't get a say in whether we want the charge or not.
It's also interesting that since 1999 plans have been in place for the "Leigh Guided Busway" - a guided busway running from Leigh (Andy Burnham's constituency) to the West of Manchester right into the city running alongside the very congested A580. A couple of years ago the project went very quiet. Now its back again, part of the big bribe into voting yes.
Can't beat a traditional Yorkshire Sunday dinner - with Yorkshire Pudding as the starter, with the main course, and as a dessert!
I always wondered why Lego bricks weren't made in a giant size. You could build your own house - in any colour - in under a day and just dismantle it when you were fed up with the design.
before The Sun manages to track an ex-lover who will describe in lurid detail said scar and maybe even provide pictures.
Moron deserves to lose the case by not keeping his mouth shut.
He even stole the inner tube for his escape and someone else's wireless to create the caper! I bet he even nicked the unique choice of clothes from someone's washing line.
They get their money from the Gov, who get their money from us. Then they have the cheek to charge us to get into our own national historical buildings and castles.
That it would the the other blind dater "making their excuses and leaving" to get away from an Apple fanboi who's entire conversation all evening would be how great their Apple products are.
Mine's the flameproof one.
I hate the "capable" logo. Technically I'm capable of running a mile in four minutes (being the same species as Roger Bannister et al), but until I lose this beer gut and do some serious upgrading (training) it ain't gonna happen.
...other countries are pissing themselves laughing at the UK and it's antiquated transport infrastructure while they build, test and use their 500+mph maglev trains.
that this radio would have one speaker, before the pic even loaded? Someone needs to tell Roberts that people like that fancy new-fangled stereo sound that everyone is talking about.
It's a great film, especially the spider scene and when he catches fire!
Not full of bloat then.
Mine's the one with the eight 1.44MB Win 3.11 disks in the pocket.
At last , an end to high price car resprays. Just nip down to B&Q for 5 litres of Dulux's finest.
Same with bodywork damage:
Wife: "I've dented the car by hitting a bollard" (cos men never do this)
Husband: "No problem, I'll just ring a joiner"
That anyone who owns and drives a car think laws don't apply? Why is speeding such an acceptable law to break? Why do traffic wardens get verbally and physically abused for upholding the law and ticketing people who deliberately park on double yellows?
I used to travel from Manchester to the South West on the M6 & M5 two or three times a week and I used to lose count at the fools lane swapping with constant rapid acceleration and braking, only to be parallel to me again in a few hundred yards, not to mention the shunts because people drive too closely and having no space to brake.
Bad driving needs to be combated. Speeders may think they have won the battle with this piece of news but you can guarantee that it will lead to some kind of big brother style system to force us to keep to the law if we're not grown up to regulate ourselves.
is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
Didn't she pose for provocative pictures for a newspaper a few months ago then "regretted" it? I bet she and her record company didn't regret the free publicity she got.
If you don't like The Reg readership, find another job. Its obviously you have some issues as you feel the need to respond in *our* section every time you post an article (although this one is by Lester?), whereas the other Reg writers don't.
Coat icon - for you.
Are all the pictures coming back in 640x480?
He was a dick then and still is now.
I remember back in the early 80's one of the stories in "Commando" magazine was about the Nazis sending soldiers up in little capsules mounted in V2 rockets for ultra quick deployment of invasion troops.
Those buggers eat batteries like there's no tomorrow.
A big section on Prestel, Compunet and Micronet?
The only good beer related app that should be installed is the classic retro game "Tapper"
What gives, an entire article and no mention of the hilarious word "Wankel"
he was thinking of his other Apple products when he said "bag of hurt". Sorry, my mistake that's "bag of shite"
I had one of these that ran off SD / MMC cards about five years ago. Only cost £20 too.
The clean amongst us use the toilets, wash our hands, then end up having to touch filthy door handles. Let's have some Star Trek type doors.
PS Save water - wash your hands in the flushing toilet water.
If you saw Channel 4's "Dispatches" this week you'll find that BA just don't return the bags. They hold on to them for a couple of months, claim they can't find the owner, then sell them at auction for £60.
It's shit, I got better web access from my old Psion 5mx connected to my mobile phone via infrared. Seriously. Don't waste your time.
erm, from a ship? Just type in "Scud launched from ship" into Google and you get plenty of results and commentary. This is one of several:
"Hard media is no longer the future, downloadable content is the way to go, so why are we bothering with Blu-ray."
The net is struggling enough to provide streaming video on demand. I'd rather have my game on my hard drive, thanks, than to get so far in a game for it to suddenly freeze with "BUFFERING" in the middle of the screen.
If these documents were so sensitive:
a) Why was he on public transport?
b) Why wasn't he with a guard, either to protect him and / or the documents?
I've seen an alarming increase in car drivers listening to MP3 players while in the car. I didn't think that was allowed?
Acer have funny ideas when it comes to warranties. It can be anything from 3 months to a year, depending on whether the hardware is the main board, a laptop battery or keyboard.
Personally, if they can only guarantee a keyboard for six months I hate to think what the quality of the rest of the gear is like.
Who watches Live TV any more anyway?
Something doesn't add up here.
First they find ten $100 bills and think it's trash.
Second, they discover the significance of their find but rather than call the authorities, they go back out themselves first. Glory hunters?
"losing" parcels (i've lost six this year, all send recorded delivery) and many post office branches closed?
If you stop invading and meddling in the business of other countries.
Because they suspected I was a money launderer. Their evidence? I sold a £100 second hand laptop on Ebay, bought the vBulletin software for someone and configured it for them and got less than a dozen donations - clearly marked "forum donation for your time and effort" - ranging from £1 to £5.
When I was at school I was taught that if I studied hard, went to college and university and got qualifications, I'd be able to afford luxuries like computers.
Now it seems you can be a burger flipper on minimum wage and get these things given to you by the state (along with cheaper fuel bills & house insulation).
If it's supposed to be a "safety feature to provide a path to earth" how the hell does it do it when:
a) the prong is plastic
b) you break open the plug and only find the live and neutral wires running to the device?
It was on BBC Breakfast on BBC1 last Saturday morning. It was amusing watching the presenters squirm and for half a second thought I was watching that Brass Eye special where it was reported he'd gone crazy!
The only ad guaranteed to work is "Buy Vista for £10, get £20 cashback"
They hate ANY change, especially to do with computers. I moved a few shortcuts around over the Summer and tidied up the shared desktops and they kicked up a fuss about that. Imagine given a completely new office interface to have to learn and teach.
Your comment about erasable magazine discs reminded me of my dad who pinched a stack of AOL CDs from the supermarket because he thought he could 'blank them' and use them again.
A 'beard' surely?
I may not watch much TV or movies but that's a hell of a drop in quality.
The winners are crap. One of the pictures looks more like those clockwork joke chattering teeth.
So much for the reassurance that the person at customer service can only see characters "x" and "y" when asking for my password.
No doubt said ex-employee has the full login details of anyone he desired.
