Re: This is a bit embarassing
She also came in a Robert Rodriguez film titled Planet Terror with a gun for a leg, which I thought was awesome in my teenage years 10yrs ago.
Ah Royal Mail, the delivery company who fares a lot worse than Planet Express and appears to be using technology from when it was privatised.
I feel like my ability to not do what adverts say is diminishing, or they've become much butter.
Re: "Microsoft said it hasn't ported its EdgeHTML engine"
I never had that problem with my Windows 10 phone /mobile/deadweight, though it might be because I had a bigger screen phone (a phablet, if you will, though I dislike the word).
My issue with Edge was it stopped rendering anything and I couldn't even refresh or switch tabs. A forced close was the only way to fix it.
I miss windows phone, or at least what it once was. I would have still use it but I've moved to the dark side now, with iOS but I really miss the keyboard on Windows phone, the swipe was good and for some reason it is better than the Swift keyboard, which MS owns.
Not sure about the text at the top but the circle and text inside is old. I liked it when I first saw it, which was at least 10-15 years ago and I am fairly sure it's much older than that. So probably was made in a a cave but not in this century.
As for Paint, it went downhill when it got ribbonised and features were dropped.
Re: Fabulus. Some of those are Windows bugs, others are in remote admin tools that don't need ID
Could some sort of PKI Card reader not be implemented, so doctors would only have to remember their own PIN.
Re: Two sets of traffic lights are needed
If the public purse were to pay for it I think there would be an incentive for there to be more autonomous cars on the road.
Hey up, you're making it sound more pleasant than the gov we've got...
Re: DevOps is bollocks
I thought the point of DevOps was to split teams up not by their function, but rather by the projects they will be working on. So, everybody working on Project X will be sitting relatively close to each other, likewise with Project Y.
This may give individuals a better idea of what someone else working on the project is doing, instead of assuming they're crap at what they do. The person may also realise the quality of work they produce and how it affects those who receive it, and change their own working pattern accordingly so to produce better output. The problem with this is if two people are doing the same thing but on different projects, and therefore sitting in different teams, when one learns something that could have potentially benefited from this, they won't.
At least, that's my understanding.
I've felt like changing my sim-only plan to a contract with a phone. But then after looking I've felt better off with my £9 plan with 1GB data, 600 minutes and 3000 texts. There was a £3 a month add-on for unlimited data without tethering (I think) which increased to £5 last time I checked, but I'm normally under my allowance. The contract was originally £12 but I rang them to leave my then £10 contract and switch to Tesco, but they gave me this offer. It must have been a year or two now since it's been on-rolling.
Ahh...'Blasphemy'. The ultimate word. They can use it to their own advantage and then get the rest of the country on their side just because the rest of the country are too scared to be 'blasphemous'.
Re: Doesn't even deserve the Battlefront title
It isn't a reskinned battlefield 4, I know because that's what I hoped it to be.
But it's nothing like Battlefield, if it was I would have got it. But it isn't, the gameplay is worse and the graphics awesome -- though I'm not complaining about the graphics.
Yeah, like the dumb are anti-scrub and the wise are pro-scrub.
So, you're saying that we were definitely not created by a God(ess) or some other deity?
I don't think our Great boffins know that much of the universe to say 'we definitely arrived by chance'. As for religion, many who make fun of those who blindly follow religion are just as much nutters. They blindly believe in science theories, barely knowing the minimum, just because the rest of the folks follow it.
Religion or not, we're broken at the genetic level.
Now let's all wait for our true saviour, The Black Monolith.
Re: My bot fancies your bot...
I just hope my bot doesn't get any dirty diseases, or impregnates someone else's bot.
One of my favourite dishes since I was a kid. Though, I personally prefer Spinach puree as it tastes nicer, ooo and some chicken or lamb.
Perhaps I'm being hopeful, but hopefully there's some hope in Spartan being good and not-so-bloaty. For a long time I have hoped they would do this, oh and rewrite their OS -- but that isn't gonna happen but here's hoping.
Re: Who else?
They may _believe_ they were abducted by aliens, but it's more likely to have been a particularly vivid dream
Agree about the vividly dream. Had I not woken up from my extremely vivid dream I seriously would have thought the government has some mind control programme. The dream sure felt real.
By "Universal", they mean "Runs on Windows Phone and Windows RT".
I, too, hope the USGov wins. But in my dream, the American companies, lose the faith of EU citizens and governments, oh and quite a bit of money and hopefully this F's up the World Police, I mean USA.
Re: I would love total equality in the workplace (IT or otherwise)
Putting 'Wife' in speech marks makes me question if she exists or if you don't consider her to be suitable to be called a wife.
He has a point. Twitter is like public announcements. If you don't want anyone knowing you're suicidal then don't post...but then the four percent kinda means this post is pointless.
The good news is Microsoft has prolly got a crap-loads of useful stuff. The bad news is they suck at the execution, kinda like my jokes.
Re: He Got Too Much
Then There's the fact that misspelling occurs without realising. Turd happens.
Yeah, didn't you know? CCTV actually records high def, sends it off to the local spooks, but only gives the user a low def version..
Looking forward to these selfie-cars.
No, no. That's the "supermodel". I know what you're going to ask and yes, I cringed a little.
This is a stupid idea!
Until they actually produce something similar and, to our surprise, it sells, then it's a great idea and, like, so totally obvious.
Re: S*** happens.
In ANY group of people there will be a number of total c***s.
And the only one who can stop them is a d**k, because..err...
...except the current weight of the HGV.
It is possible to calculate the weight assuming the following is known:
- Model of the HGV
- Characteristics of the HGV suspension springs, such as spring stiffness, original length with no cargo
- Calculating the length of the suspension spring is precise and accurate
By calculating the force:
Change in Force = Spring Stiffness x Change in Spring Length.
You can find the mass of the cargo:
Change in Force = Change in Mass x g
Divide Force by g (~10m/s2) you could calculate the mass of what's inside.
Re: Don't get it.
I was going to say "Quite surprised no has up-voted you yet." but then I checked the post time and it wasn't that long ago.
"Because the individual did something important and isn't a white male" is still, of itself, a form of sexism.
We, as a nation, go in one extreme to balance out our previous equally extreme but opposite position. It is a shame. We are sexist to men just because our nation was sexist to women. We are racist to whites just so non-whites can't shout racism. We can't seem to find a middle ground until it's too late.
It shouldn't matter what gender, race, etc the individual is, or isn't.. Only what the individual has done. Until we can get to that point, our society is still irrecoverably sexist.
Completely agree. We should treat each other fairly, which to a large extent means equally but it's not always the case. But I think our country is also, to an extent, racist as well as sexist. I mean racist to whites. I've never tried it but I'm sure if I, with my ethnic origin being Pakistani, played the race card I'd get much more sympathy even if I was in the wrong. That's not to say people aren't racist to non-whites, but that racism to whites wouldn't be treated equally.
Re: "Justin Bieber! Nobody f%$king neeeeeeds yaaaa...."
tarnishing his previous "cute kid from Canada" image.
Well, I'm sure at some point artists don't really want to be seen with kids any more...in both meanings.
Re: I have a problem
Not to forget the Tories considered Nelson Mandela to be a terrorist, so there you go.
@AC : 19:13
Can Lancashire join you? The people in power think London is a separate country.
Re: And where will all this money go ?
To be fair, with the exception of VEVO, most of the other music videos are from 'fans' with the obligatory 'I DO NOT OWN THIS. COPYRIGHT BELONGS TO X' admission-of-guilt written somewhere near the video.
I suspect it's an opt-in for users like VEVO---or something like that.
BOOM, because, I like b-bombs.
Sigh, Windows X RT is confusing the average user with Windows X. So they could call it Windows Phone X, but then saying a tablet runs Windows Phone is weird because it can't call. Unless they call it Windows Mobile, for stuff that are mobile, but then that will confuse people with the older phone OS and again, most will think you can call from it. So maybe Windows Go.
Re: "Where it already has taken us, surely?"
Sigh, the country's in the shitter. Let's scrap it and start again. Britain 2.0.
To be fair, they don't make "dumb" phones like they used to. The ones now are, perhaps, designed more for the ageing society than any other and if you can remember what it was like in school, you wouldn't want a phone that was ugly and uncool.
Since everyone else is ranting
I just wanna digress and complain about those fuckin' cable/satellite broadcasters like Sky who fuckin' force you into paying for those expensive channel subscriptions, subscribing to "OMG over 500 channels!!", even though you just want to watch half of a dozen. South Park got it right.
Re: And so it begins...
So.... when is Team America 2: World Wide Web Police coming out?
Re: "We don't intervene against anyone...
But isn't that the case with any government?
Re: So the actual 'scandal' here...
Kinda reminds me of Futurama:
Leela: Fry, we have a crate to deliver.
Fry: Well let's just dump it in the sewer and say we delivered it.
Bender: Too much work. Let's burn it and *say* we dumped it in the sewer.

He? Don't you mean 'she'?
