With Apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan
Boris is the very model of a modern Tory minister,
He has information irregular, falsified, and sinister,
Relieved of his duties for lying as a minister,
Let me tell you how he became the prince of a town called westminster,
He is barely acquainted with matters mathematical,
His poorly crafted lies drive the ignorant hysterical,
About unfounded brexit shit he is often in a lot o'news,
With many dreadful 'facts' for those confirming their own racist views,
Boris is the very model of a modern Tory minister.
Re: EU must be joking
The British car industry wasn't nationalised for fun. It was nationalised because it was failing. Badly.
Most of the policies in Labour's last manifesto wouldn't be out of place in one written by Angela Merkel.

Because they haven't invested in the infrastructure to support their customers.
Re: Able Archer
For a good dramatisation of events surrounding Able Archer, watch the German TV series Deutschland 83.
Re: I hope it all goes a bit "Ratners" for Equifax!
You mean you hope they change their name and carry on exactly as before?
Re: Disco still sucks. Worst thing New York ever inflicted on the planet.
Since November last year, disco is only the second worst thing that NY has inflicted on the planet.
Re: It is a shame that virtual items are .....
They are considered to be (intellectual) property.
But theirs, not yours.
Re: that pesky ECHR
You mean the ECHR that is not an EU thing and so not affected by Brexit?
I don't think I've ever seen a wallet that wasn't mobile.
Isn't the whole point of a wallet that it allows you to carry around your cash and cards without losing them?
Re: Wasn't Ocean scrapped to save money?
Not yet. She's due to be decommissioned next year.
Re: the most overpaid ineffectual Quango to date.
It's will be less effective than the one set up to monitor Latin American ballroom dancing and orange-flavoured drinks - the so-called Tango Quango.

Re: concerningly close to the words of the CCP right?
For a moment I thought you were talking about the creators of internet spaceships game Eve Online.

Re: But I wouldn't really classify popcorn as a candy.
Froyo and honeycomb aren't really candy either though, and they've both been used.
Re: Protect your expensive kit/drives now..
An insulator between the foil and the device would also help.
The classic method is to line a biscuit tin with a towel and earth it.
All I need to know is, can I still call David Cameron a gammon-faced cockwomble?
The Answer You're Looking For
Haswell and Broadwell are generations within the Haswell architecture.
Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake and Cannonlake are generations within the Skylake architecture.
Icelake and Tiger Lake are generations within the Icelake architecture.
So yes, both the 8th and 9th Gen can be Icelake, but one will also be Tiger Lake.
Lake is one of those words that looks weird when you see it repeated lots.
Re: Does the ship require a TV licence?
I've got a mate who installed the Sky dish on one of the Type 45s.
It can track the satellite while going at 30 knots in a force 8 gale or something mad like that.
Re: Oh no!
What are the odds that they've seen who the contract is for and fitted (the admittedly non-existent) British Naval Connectors?
I did not know that TSOHost had been bought. That might explain the crappy support I received.
Re: Right to bear arms
I've never understood why Americans think that owning ursine forelimbs is so important.
The name Ice Lake has been out there for ages (as has its successor - Tigerlake).
Photon at the Airport
A photon arrives at the airport and goes up to the check-in desk to collect its boarding pass.
After handing it over, the lady behind the counter asks him "do you have any bags to put in the hold?"
"No thanks" replies the photon, "I'm travelling light."
Re: UK based Azure Cloud?
I would not be at all surprised if at least one UK-owned company put in a lower bid than Azure and passed the technical assessment.

The fatcats said the same when the UK first introduced the minimum wage. I don't recall inflation being a problem.

Re: Multiple cores makes development a breeze
The E5-2697 v2 has 12 cores, not 24.
The problem with Xenon CPUs is that it's hard to contain all that gas.

Re: Britain: A Bunch of Sheep-like Mice. What happened to the Bulldog?
No, he wants someone to fail to blow up the HoP.
Re: Think of the Children!
I think it was Jacqui Smith's hubby?
Think of the Children!
"...the UK's legislation will require that parents have to give consent for children to access online service for kids aged under 13. The GDPR's default age is 16."
So the UK's interpretation of GDPR will allow 13-15 year olds to do what they like, which will not be the case elsewhere.
This seems so completely at odds with the usual government mantra of "think of the children" that it sets alarm bells ringing.
The cynic in me is wondering if it's so they can at some later point introduce some really draconian legislation affecting everyone with the usual justification that they're protecting the kids
Re: The millibit/second strikes again!
The prefix for kilo is k, not K.
He always reminds me of Baron Harkonnen in the film version of Dune.

One tomato, fried
