I go to the pub for beer, music and friends.
Not bribes, but Sophos provided socks as wedding favours for me. MS and HP contributed to the bar, Webroot paid for the boat and Spiceworks paid for the wedding photography.
Well, this one time it got close...
I tell it to Americans all the time - I have business relationships with US companies.
I'll be bleating about it to another one today.
I've also had "fun" (for certain values of fun) discussions with TSA.
If I do business with/in America I am expected to abide by their laws.
If America does business with/in the EU then they are expected to abide by EU laws.
It's that straightforward. Not just for GDPR, but for Employment, Tax, yadda yadda.
An American can't walk the streets of London carrying a gun because he can where he lives.
When in Rome and all that...
Why are people making this so bloody difficult?
*goes to rant*
*spots troll icon*
*goes back to "work"*
What if you want to ask about 15 year old Escorts or the best way to fix a Tranny?
Ah, the episode of the Grand Tour, where Clarkson, Hammond and May drove from Wank, through Kissing, Petting and Fucking until they got to Wedding.
That's what she said... ;)
No more transcripts of police conversations with suspects then?
"And the gentleman came up to me and said 'Kindly go away officer, you lady's front bottom...'"
Reminds me of the time the Partners at a Law Firm I was working for insisted on a word filter on all inbound/outbound emails - which resulted in a statement from a policeman being put into quarantine for exactly these reasons. It got released - 2 minutes after the lawyer that was expecting it had left for court.
If there is an El Reg lynch mob (which I don't think there is), it would be a minute percentage of the lynch mob that's out there on Twitter/Facebook/Mainstream media sites.
It's like this, mi ducks...
Wouldn't buy me snap from that 'ole.
Especially as there's a Michelin starred place (Sat Bains) less than a mile away from it.
"If you guy from a company"
How are the ventriloquism lessons going?
"Being unfamiliar with European and/or British consumer law, do consumer goods there not carry a statutory warranty? "
Yes, they do.
"Cthulhu saves, but Nyarlathotep scores from the rebound", surely?
Does that mean they're responsible for the death of Swype? https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/02/22/rip_swype/
"I have not seen any so is it worth it?"
I'm sure you can find low end porn featuring people wearing fantasy costumes elsewhere... ;)
No, just a special level of user ;)
Nope, he wanted it printing. Every bit.
The subsequent conversation with his managers confirmed this was what he expected to happen. To have a copy of the video in the "Digital file" and a printed copy in a paper file for him.
We compromised on 4 important frames from the video being printed.
Even kids know you need a flick book to do animation on paper... ;)
Me: "Hello, IT"
User: "A client has sent me a video as an attachment and I can't view it"
Me: "Ok, let me remote in... Right. Show me the email... OK, that's a link to a video on a sharing site, not an attachment. That site is blocked during working hours which is why you're getting the message when you click on it..."
User: "Can you unblock it temporarily? This is for an urgent matter"
Me: "Ok, let me know when you've finished watching it and I'll re-block the site"
User: "And I'll be able to print it, right?"
Me: "Sorry, can you run that by me again?"
User: "The video. I can print the video and put it on file"
Me: "Uhhh... You want to print every frame of the video? Or just some static bits when you pause it?"
User: "No, I want the entire video"
Me: "It's 10 minutes long. At 25 frames per second that's 15,000 frames"
User: "It fits on the one web page! Can't I print it to a single page?"
My earlier comment was probably too sub-tle
Reminds me of one in the town where I was born...
"Germans are pretty sick of war jokes"
Henning Wehn does the odd war joke.
"He's the man who caused me to go into science rather than law, I look at my lawyer kid's mini-mansion and my own humble 4 bed detached and I'm not sure what I think of that."
I'm jealous, but at least I'm not a lawyer?
Damn. That kills my idea for a Java Advanced Script Object Notation.
Uhhh... there's the up and down arrows at the bottom of every post.
That's your upvote/downvote right there.
If you're using Windows, look at iSpy which will use any sort of storage you can point it to.
Topical comment? On El Reg?
Must be Christmas.
a) I think it's Cheetos.
b) Wotsits or GTFO.
I think the only place with a higher body count is Midsomer.
So support turn on the Accessibility Settings?
Light my own farts?
Doesn't every man?
Reached the Iron Age?
How dare you! I had that new fangled gas lighting fitted in my cave last week, mind you.
*Note. I am Welsh, we're allowed to take the piss out of ourselves. I don't want anyone being offended (on my behalf) because they might think this is a troll post by an Englishman. ;)
They're both wonderful people. They were cured of their evil. I saw it on TV so it must be true.
It's like craigslist, but without the guns and sexual services.
I've seen this - not on my current account, but on my Credit Card.
People Eating Tasty Animals. Right?
Is it true that the housing market is that bad in Liverpool that they're only using half the amount of bricks that they used to for jacking up the cars?
Mater tua criceta fuit, et pater tuo redoluit bacarum Sambucus
To crack that cypher, first get some crack...
"My girlfriend often says this"
To the best coffee maker in the house?
Not necessarily "Tell you what I'll do, I'll make the first one free..." but definitely first time buyer discounts.
I've slept on Justin Sullivan's sofa.
I pray to $DEITY none of my Architect clients see this.
"as the current pres could not find Canada on a map let alone the UK."
You appear to have mistyped "as the current pres could not find his own arse with both hands, a map, and sat nav, let alone the UK."
And the "Fat Controller" is an S&M reference, right?
Correct. Ya buncha bastids.
