Re: Fool me once, shame on you etc ...
How about "Twinging" surely that has a better ring to it?

I LOVED Nights of the Round. Plus lots of the other summons... Bahamut was good, as was the Hades one and the one with Odin. I forget all the names, but recall all the WOWs that was said when first used. I had it on Playstation (the first) and now have it on PC. Might have to fire it up tonight now.
Have you seen where that is on the map, there is nothing around for miles and miles and miles.... and its not even a road!
What a waste of time and money, surely the money Google are wasting on driving around Africa should be spent on HIV, Aids, Malaria, starving children, and other far more deserving things!
I mean, who wants to look at 1500miles of scrubland and dirt roads? Its not like every home in Botswana will have internet access, never mind running water, electricity blah blah.
TOTAL EFFING GOOGLE FAIL!
Agreed, try listening to any Pink Floyd album on shuffle and it totally ruins it. These albums and many more by other great artists tell a story. Some newer artists employ this tactic too, but it goes to waste on the shuffle brigade most of the time.... Shuffle is for those who love NOW albums.
Sad to see HMV go, but it was a bit shit in my opinion and has been for at least 10 years. Last good record shop I went in was Syd Scarborough under Hull City Hall, now that was a sweet experience in the basement flicking through old vinyl! You can't hit shuffle when an LP is playing.
I use it, with a Dell media centre remote with built in gyro for mouse control. Works pretty well and I've never had any problems with it. Could do to be a bit more user configurable, I know there are ways to make it your own, so to speak, but haven't got round to researching it yet.
Any suggestions on alternatives that work with my remote would be gratefully received.
Such a shame really... I remember visiting a Comet store as a kid on an industrial estate in Hull, they had Sinclair C5s for sale back then. Sad to see a household name and Hull based company go under. Went into a store lastnight to wish the guys good luck. All that was left on display were a few scart cables and modem leads. Comet, on behalf of myself and my family, thanks for all the Fridges, hoovers, washers, dryers, poor customer service, and for not offering me that job in infrastructure years ago.
Was very saddened to hear this news last night. Well done Reg on taking the time to give a wonderful tribute to a great British institution. I'll really miss his Xylophone exploits too which only served to make him even more fascinating to me while growing up. I do hope his hometown has the good sense to turn his residence into a museum of sorts. Would be great for all those not fortunate to have witnessed his genius and eccentricity while he was alive to experience the lifes work of such a legend.
Rest in Piece me old monocle'd mate! A star amongst stars.
I often need to rename a copy of a flash ocx file to allow an old corporate screensaver to work. Am I guilty of reverse engineering?
Why Apple don't use Flash article from The Jobs on http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughts-on-flash
They really have fell out haven't they! Anything to do with the EULA?
Not me, i'm still on my 4 that I have had since they came out. I think I just needed to get it out of my system and see what all the fuss was about. Although I think its an adequate device, I just can't see myself paying out a large amount as that again. Prior to that free cast offs from work did me.
I intend to use my 4 until it breaks and then maybe repair it and use it some more, after that, who knows.
oh, if we are going down the game show tangent albeit loosely, then surely you need to include, Dusty Bin from 3-2-1 with Ted Rogers, The thing from Catch Phrase with Roy Walker and i'm sure there's loads more. What about that thing on Snog, Marry, Avoid? Not that I watch it :)
Back to the silver screen however number Johnny Five from Short Circuit surely must get a mention.... "input Stephanie, Input".
Good Luck with that.... I now never buy from Amazon, or Play.com since being gobbled up by another conglom, good old Ebuyer does me for most stuff, and its local to me so supporting good old East Yorkshire to boot.
Failing that I'l, get off my arse and nip down to an indie store if I can and give my money to the local economy instead of tax dodgers from the old colonies.
I also avoid any TV featuring Jimmy Carr and change stations when a Gary Barlow song comes on.
We are using Windows 7 on all the PCs that don't use all our old legacy software we have due to lack of investment in IT the past. For all those users that still need the legacy apps we have a nice Windows XP image that has ballooned to 9gb in size! I can see Windows XP hanging on for A LONG LONG TIME, and 7 is just getting started for us. Windows 8ista, I can't see many takeups myself. Microsoft must be thinking "Shit, we did it again"!
Does that mean Apple would travel back to the garden of eden and slap the Almighty with a patent infringement summons for the forbidden fruit scandal?
That must mean Microsoft are one step closer to patenting a wave, or hand gesture... thin air next?
Paris, IMHO could do with some augmentation... both reality and the other ;)
