Big Climate's strange 'science'

Thumb Down

Dont get it twisted

What I and many others object to is paying through the nose to be carbon neutral purely because of this hype from 'eco-fascists' (to quote an eco-fascist above)

I am all for saving the earths resources and being economical but I refuse to be ripped-off and told to change my lifestyle due to some crappy junk science.

German privacy activists cry foul over data retention law

AC - "AC: "Terrorism is created by government bastards with their policy decisions."

Sometimes.. more often than not nowadays, it's a result of people accepting religious beliefs as something "sacred" that shouldn't be questioned"


Sorry but thats rubbish. More often than not nowadays terrorism is created by the government to subdue the people and herd them like cattle into a totalitarian big brother state.

How much terrorism was there before George Bush & Co. decided to p*ss off the whole of the muslim world by blaming them for 9/11, invading Iraq on a false pretext and locking up anyone with a vaguely foreign name indefinitely? Next to none.

About the only terrorists we seem to prosecute are the thickos they've managed to coax into saying 'violent jihad' in return for a box of milk tray....

Sears admits to joining spyware biz


Anyone know?

Anyone know what else this software did apart from spying?

I mean there must have been some other 'carrot' to lure people into installing, right?

Microsoft readies Hal 9000

Thumb Up


Maybe it will administer you a coffee at exactly the point in the afternoon when you start to lag. Ideal!

UK gov sets rules for hacker tool ban


Hold up!

Anonymous Coward - "Perhaps instead they should make "losing data through stupidity" illegal"

Your wish shall be granted AC:


Tracking down the Ron Paul spam botnet


More smearing

Ron Paul is the only vaguely honest, no-nonsense politician the US has had in years. He is a big threat to the establishment and he is gaining ground rapidly.

Could be that things like this are designed to tarnish his name. After all, many other methods have already been tried to suppress him. That's probably why many may not have heard of him, but I suspect you'll be hearing a whole lot more very soon...


Police launch hunt for bogus bobbies

Thumb Down


"Living in Tottenham myself, I find the idea of Edmonton being closed off for long periods of time quite pleasing. ;)"

Not if your coming through Edmonton on your way home when they close it off -- three days you'd have to live off fried chicken...

Facebook takes the Captcha rap

Dead Vulture


"Not doctored, just resized, and probably using a linear rather then cubic or bicubic algorithm"

- either that or some fools also typed 'rapo now' as the answer -- trying to fool the machine maybe?

Prince's anti-YouTube crusade halted by American mommy



Prince, you should go pick on someone your own damn size....

....oh...you did...

More gnashing of teeth after Microsoft update brings PCs to a standstill


You know what?

"You know what we call Macs? Just another PC Clone, but with a much more flaky OS at twice the price of a Win PC"

That's quite a mouthful...

French court says non to pre-loaded Windows on Acer laptop


I know some of you may not like MS but....

...quote from lxer.com

"You can do your own searches on Google if you want to find people who resell Compal, Quanta, Wistron, Asus, Clevo, Mitac, FIC, AOpen, and Uniwill. Most of them will sell you a laptop without an operating system or they will install Linux on it for you"

It's no wonder the french get a bad reputation over here in the UK.

My own analogy:

When I go to my local restaurant to buy a 'Happy' meal I dont sue the company for 'making' me buy the bloomin' toy.

London council to use lie detectors to finger benefit cheats



"What is this? 20 questions or summink?"

Sony to exorcise 'rootkit' from USB drives


SONY -- good for nothin'

Anyone remember in 2000 when Sony remade and released (ie: copied in the most plagiarising manner) the tune Knights of the Jaguar by DJ rolando, note-for-note because he wouldnt give Sony permission to release it?!?


The downright, no good, thievin' b*****ds. Havent trusted them ever since.
