Wait, wait...the cake is a lie?
I call bullshit on that. Reg have been showing me ads all morning for Expedia (which i don't never use and zero plans on using) and yesterday it were dresses (and i'm a bloke - well, last time i looked i was); and i don't wear dresses (and don't count kilts). Since i don't have an adblocker at work, it makes it painful to view and honestly often hangs the browser besides putting those sites on my "don't ever do business with" list.
"The United States Post Office is very much to blame."
Think you mean US Patent Office.
Well, boo hoo Microsoft. Should we call the WAHmbulance for you now or later?
Have one (or more, as appropriate).
Of course, they end up in a carpet in the lime pit, but really now, what did they expect?
And here's a fiver toward your new modem.
I doubt the contents would survive a drop table.
Nicely played. Have one.
still did backups onto floppy disks
Erm, did them on tape. Travan 4 if i recall. Even back then.
Is on page 25, middle of the page, paragraph 3.
quick wash with a pressure hose
i think you mean quick wash with a pressure hose and bleach...
And no, we don't want to see it in action.
Have one for the weekend.
And that includes a power out at work location!
Have one to get started (and then have another!).
Does your animal have four legs?
Does your animal have two legs?
Is your animal slimy and squirms around?
Is your animal a worm?
Does your animal have a brain?
Is your animal a politician?
What can possibly go wrong?
"But my housemate wanted to be able to control the central heating from her smartphone"
Pick up phone.
walk over to the heating control
use corner of phone to poke the up/down arrow on the control
Yes, the head dingo eats babies (as if we didn't already know this).
We used to use similar boards on IBM collator (085) and interpreters (557) and on Univac 1004/1005 units. They usually had a hard cover affixed to keep fingers out. I don't even want think about how many cards I put through those machines.
So, that's somewhere south and east of the EU?
"using other objects "
Shovels and rakes are not replacement for hoes.
I'll get the swallow right on it.
How many millions go to the lawyer? Pull my other one.
Condolences to friends and family. The tribute is worth a read.
Will that be just before; or right after hell freezes over?
I've had them chew up gas line on the lawn tractor and chew though the high voltage cable coming off the coil on the old van. Had to have it towed to the garage as i had no way of getting beneath the thing to check it out.
Beer and Bacon.
You can't go wrong.
So Nokia scooping up Alcatel wasn't a total waste of time and money.
Have a beer and celebrate.
"see nothing higher than base desires"
dressing female babies in blue and males in pink?
It used to be this way into the mid-50's and large corporations changed it all around. When we had our first daughter and brought her home all wrapped in blue, the elderly ladies in our apartment knew she was a girl with only the face exposed...nothing else visible...
Did i mis-read that? I'll have to ask her...
Put all the execs in a soundproof room and play their recordings non-stop all the way up to 11. Seriously.
Thought? Whoa now. Let's not be insulting them.
So, does it matter if they shove them off the roof or force them to jump?
haven't seen that many posts in one place or in one day in quite a while;
and, what's worse, they're almost understandable...wtf with that?
I've heard he only eats a FEW babies....
I'm not too worried about it, but don't expect wife or kids to ever open the door to strangers.
You missed the "no trespassing" sign?
I don't know you...you need to leave now before the sheriff gets here.
"searched your house"
Unlikely unless legal probable cause for a search warrant and even then, if your "controller" is for your own unit they would never be able to prove you interfered with another unit... no case... no probable cause...no search
Outsourced all that - just sayin'
didn't update your software - guilty
did update your software - guilty
let your self-driving car actually self-drive - guilty
didn't use the self-driving feature - guilty
ran over 42 little kids - extra guilty
Seriously? I thought IT was going to be the thing to do... Who knew?
it would be nice if, just for a day, the "two big" search engines blocked say....
The top 1000 song artists
The top dozen music publishers
All the top "rights" groups
and returned the search with a "sorry, we can't provide that today to show you how government control of search is a bad thing..."
"is the humble clothes peg"
Wait a minute...you're pegging your computer... mind bleach please
The only reason Intel continued to invest and try to make better/faster chips was because they had competition from AMD for at least 5 minutes or so... the telcos still don't have competition on their home turf.
It's bad enough when a site has a primary script (in their name), but when I ok that and suddenly see 20 more pop up and can't see anything on the site... you're done for.
scripting is by far the biggest overhead pig in my FF... "normal" stuff is satisfactory...
Did that somehow magically get moved across the Channel?
"When it changed in the '60s "
That's at least 4 generations in the south...
