TSB's middleware nightmare: Execs grilled on Total Sh*tshow at Bank


Would the threat of punishment work as a means of making pester and fester get their sums right? If so, what form should such punishment take?

What the @#$%&!? Microsoft bans nudity, swearing in Skype, emails, Office 365 docs


Re: No Cussing Allowed?

you are confusing the issue which has nothing to do with the fifteenth century. Microsoft is responding to the cretinous Christians on its board and the cretinous Christians who lead communities in the USA. They are compelled to inflict their genital guilt on everyone else. Don't worry about X box, they will soon get round to dealing with that. You can expect this tightening and constriction of free speech to accelerate over the coming months. Judging by the witless comments on this thread, America has no people prepared to deal with the onslaught, (forget Trump, he's a wanker) likely enough you will all roll over paws up for the genitally guilty power elite of the USA to destroy the foundations of civilisation right before your very eyes as you go ninny-whining on the web.

Man who gave interviews about his crimes asks court to delete Google results


Yes, agree with your thinking, but looking at such issues as the case of James Damore, the Google employee sacked for being ""Diverse", as Google's own "Diversity" policy committee advocates and taking into consideration the hateful censorship of "hate speech" on social media practised by Google, one can't help feeling any way of hitting back at such a truly monstrous entity must be a good thing.

F-35 'incomparable' to Harrier jump jet, top test pilot tells El Reg


The F35 is a failure. It is a war loser. It's a sitting duck. Showing some dimwit news hack a simulator is an obvious propaganda move, but it doesn't fool anyone else. Sending the F35 against latest Russian and Chinese fighters is like using a biplane against a Messerschmidt ME109

Uber loses court fight over London drivers' English language tests


Forget British Passport Holders. They may be, after all, Arab or Swahili recently arrived in UK. I'm not curious about how many of my ethnically English 20 or so close neighbours would pass this English test, because I can tell you it would be about three. Most of them have no idea where Europe is and appear unable to read a newspaper.

Could YOU survive a zombie apocalypse? Uni eggheads say you'd last just 100 days


Why I will Survive

The zombie hacks rattling their heads to find an original thought have seized on a few pathetic and worldless students and their homework statistical exercise to create another bag of boring nonsense. We all know the non story with big headlines and this is it. Students know everything right up until they have to get a job. They might as well be zombies too. The fact is that I personally would survive a zombie apocalypse as top dog and I would survive it very easily, with style. You must be asking, WHY? I will survive, because I would never stand in a city centre, surrounded by hundreds of abandoned cars - many with key still in the ignition - and ask my blond co-star, with her bad timing and tight little blouse, "But, how are we going to get out of the city?" I would never stand in a recently busy street stuffed with food shops and ask "Oh god, where will we find food?" and I promise you, I will never, ever, walk, hungry, cold, exhausted, past an abandoned police station/army base/ barracks/gunsmiths, lamenting my lack of weapons.
