A good choice with a simple explanation
Putin specified an incompetent to make sure that the Russians could get in whenever they want.

I always read the pieces with his bylne -- his personality definitely came through. But I hadn't realized how wide his influence was. El Reg is definitely a different place without him.
turns out a recent analysis showed that kidney donor don't live as long as non-donors and most people regret donating 10 years later. Oops!
You claimed that El Reg has "impossibly high standards." It seems that without an appropriate unit of measure, this statement is without merit.
Since the Register's Standards Organisation maintains important units of measure, a committee ought to be able to determine the proper unit. Perhaps "mean distance between the centres of mass of the Earth and the Moon" would suffice? The Sun, of course, having an extremely small value in this case.
Only then could we rank the standards of The Register, The Spectator, The Torygraph, The Guardian, Pravda and DPRK News, anything by Elsevier, and the like.
I assumed you meant Boris Johnson!
Find's being on same continent as Obama "unbearable".
Shame I have only two thumbs to give the maximum score of two thumbs up! Outstanding work by the crack Register Playmobil team. The head in the wheelbarrow is particularly well done.
Still, I have this nagging fear: is this investigative journalism at its finest....or has the Register's advertising bureau simply sold out the editorial space to some big accounts?
It's a vulva, not vagina.
ewww....I hope they at least tan it first.
Will they use a contrasting colour for the stitching?
Sorry mate, I use relo for a relocation record (when dredging object files for linker or compiler bugs). For my cuzzies and sis and the like I say "rellie," as does everyone else around here. But you're right that the arvo comes by every day.
Hmm, quick rummage and a bit of google-fu shows that Lester Haines was the Register hack who once thought we call a tarpaulin a "tarpo".
I suggest The Register give him six months' transportation to Australia. He can spend a nice traditional chrissie on the beach with some sheilas and go back and tell the poms what's what. And miss a horrible UK winter.
Is this "AD" some new EU-mandated metric unit? Dekka-Amperes (presumably 10^30 Amps) perhaps? Long enough for 5000 Active Directory installations to lock up (a rather short period I would say)? Or perhaps it's the lifetimes of 5000 Denying Apologists (as in climate change Denying oil company Apologists)?
I think perhaps you meant "AD 5000" as in "Atheist Determined"
Please add this one to your sites summarised: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/03/15/ipad_review_roundup_roundup/
I'm all for reminding people that Australia exists, but I'm not sure what a game in Australia has to do with all this.
And what's wrong with "pupil"?
Extra points for BAAPS but really, no mention of Bulgarian airbags?
He was a titan, but don't go overboard: "General-purpose programming languages had not existed before C" is rubbish: Algol, and Fortran preceded it by more than a decade, and Multics (which dmr worked on) was written in PL/1 as were its applications.
C was / is a good implementation of the idea, based on learning from those experiences, as dmr himself would say.
In other words: there's no need to denigrate the giants upon whose shoulders he stood.
I feel sorry for the poor lambs that may "face an income gap at the end of their lifetimes." Wouldn't it be cheaper to teach them to save their money when young rather than trash hotel rooms?
You whinge about this now, but you've had SEVEN years of gustatory relief as law was passed in 2004 while Vegemite has already got the chop. Typical for them to start with the colonials.
Perhaps the crown princess can get Vegemite's abusive treatment reversed.
Pictures or it didn't happen!
Aren't all tweeters tossers?
I always liked sitting with my Nanna (boy I miss her!) and listening to the speech. It gave everyone a chance to finish their drink before the party started up again.
Not even a playmobil reconstruction -- complete with photoshopped distortions?
No good just repeating the data. We need some anaysis: to understand its implications for mankind. Specifically: what will be the impact on the rebranding industry????
Oh gosh, how CUTE!!!
Who will be cast as kamchatka?
How exactly do you mistreat a host? Send it malformed packets? Rough up its IP address?
More people can dabble, which is your point. This is like more people painting pictures at the local arts program. The pictures are crap but they have fun and they have something of their own to hang on the wall.
You also ignored the huge number of "business process" "applications" which aren't really any more creative than writing a memo.
Making something creative that changes lots of peoples' lives is hard work and hasn't changed significantly over the past 25 years, whether you're programming a major, scalable web application (e.g. facebook, google) or an embedded app (e.g. ipod). Those still take creative work once the prototype is done.
I loved this quote: "all of us would probably agree that you probably [would have a] poor experience at the end of the day"
That's right, it would be a poor experience for the CTIA members who don't have a viable business model. It would be a better experience for the customer, however...
Only paedos and Terr'ists? I guess that's just 'coz it's a simple embedded device. Were it a full-featured user device then we'd get Drugs and Organised Crime too, and then you'd have to register before using one.
Hey, that wouldn't be so bad. ASIO could monitor your caffeine consumption and see if your cardiac problems are due to excess consumption? If so Medicare won't have to pay. Taxpayers would be thrilled! And what about children drinking coffee?
Skull-n-crossbones because in the future only hackers 'n pirates will use unlicensed coffee machines.
At first I also agreed it looked fake because everybody pretty much just stood around and watched. But he was so incompetent: wandering around, taking several flabby kicks to remove a panel which then came imperfectly free, slipping on the desk because of leather shoes, etc. A hollywood epic would have had more planning and would have had attractive debris flying clear. It is convincing to me.
But maybe I'm just dim.
Paris 'coz normally....why else would you watch crummy web video?
Generally embedded hardware comes with an availability guarantee (i.e. the vendor has to keep making the same chip for you even if the state of the art has moved on). When you buy a company you can't just throw its contracts away. So Apple has to do this even if they toss PA Semi's business away -- they can just refuse to sign any new contracts to supply chips. Whether this has to do with the DoD or anybody else is no big deal.
So sorry, this isn't really news. The only real complicated question is why I would bother to read an article about something I don't think is news...
When I was young we had to download our porn by handing around stone tablets. And even _then_ we all managed to beat that total. Daily!
Young whippersnappers, grumble....
Paris because she can beat that routinely, as downloadeuse and downloadee.
Having had a poor experience with their gear in the past, we nevertheless in desperation last year bought a buffalo NAS just to tide ourselves over for a couple of weeks until the real gear arrived. Wow, what a mistake. Even the nontechnical staff joined us in throwing it off the roof.
Which I might mercifully have forgotten had their name not come up this week...when someone complained to me that none of their buffalo gear was reliable.
Perhaps it's produced by a buffalo's....central processing system.
Sounds like dwarf tossing is an older tradition than I'd realised.
Sounds like you might enjoy this enthusiastic review from someone who upgraded from Vista to XP, played straight:
The Vatican wasnt paying attention when the list was dictated to them....they forgot to write down SPAM.
Well blow me down!
It's a shame that MIT (which is in Cambridge) provided a picture which is plainly in New York.
OK, after only the title I'd best be going then.
That sad monologue is all about the vulva. I guess they were afraid to say that word on stage.
I like that at the end of this message (and just above the comments) I got the ad, "What's your take on the great Green rush? Join the debate here." So are we to colonise Mars and massacre all the little Green men?
Right, then, first plan should be that upon landing we burn the ships. Oh and bring some blankies of smallpox. Let's see, what's next...
You know the type who calls support every day looking for the cup holder etc. Perhaps they want him to start calling Apple?
Gene Wolfe fans will remember Severian's cloak of Fulgin -- a colour "darker than black".
Ahh, but do they have Prince Albert in a can?
oh, and though you had a couple of links to ludicrous wikipedia entries (perhaps changed by now) you didn't even provide a link to what she actually said. Which is rather her point.
Speaking of links, I'm impressed by what you got from Google. Please provide the search string. When I typed "what do you think about the ban of google in brighton" and clicked on "submit" what I got was nothing like "We believe that more knowledge is more power..."
Effective immediately, sackings are to happen Sunday evenings ONLY.
Look, he knows where you've been sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good. And now Microsoft shut him down.
Sounds like another Windows spyware cleanup to me.
Err, ACAP was defined in RFC-2244 exactly 10 years ago in November 1997?
I predict today's ACAP will be just as popular and effective as ACAP was 10 years ago.
Who needs a $3K, 4TB iSCSI implementation when you can get an inexpensive NAS RAID for about the same price?
I can see it...sort of...at the higher levels, but the "S" setup seems like horrible overkill for the alleged market: people who won't grow much (e.g. the proverbial dentists) and who need as few moving parts as possible.
"S" for "Stupid" on netapp's part.
There have been many examples of programing languages with kewords in different languages; French Algol is only one. The issue of keyword homonyms due to unicode keyspace was also extensively discussed in the unicode world years ago.
But the fact is that it's no more alien for a non-English speaker to use "<font>" or "for (i=0; i<x; i++);" than it is for an English speaker to use "Allegro" or "Da Capo a la Fine." Or eat camembert or sushi. Or even say "OK".
People world wide understand all of these "technical" and "alien" terms. What's the big deal?
(I swear it's true: when I got to the bottom of the article it said there were..._*17*_ comments....).
The mash-up is merely a one-way Conversation with the MLM and megacorps. The true crowdsourced pleaser is the Sarnie (TM), the RSS Feed that keeps you in touch with your friend's movements. This FriendTwitter (which we call "Fritter") is your own high-degree personalised data "mix tape" of financial records, mp3s, indescreet acts and peculiar purchases. Upon it is laid the crowdsourced Titter of your community -- that's the Conversation -- while your Fritter rests upon the mass media (for that's where the bread is). This PersonalStack is truly Delicous. It's a high-cholesterol Rich Multimedia experience. Today's consumer doesn't want the same experience as everyone else, today's consumer makes their own Younique life-mix, and the Sarnie ties it all together in an easily-handled personal way that is naturally part of the daily rituals. It's what you've been waiting for, and it's online for you.
