You see, that's what I like about El Reg - it may be an embittered meany at times, but Lester's comment shows that underneath the vultures feathers beats a heart of fluffy loveliness.
Maybe I am the only one......but
Other companies had a chance to bid.
Other companies decided not to.
BT became pretty much sole supplier.
Therefore it must be BT's fault.
Hmm - dammed if they do, dammed if they don't.

I salute you, I raise a glass to you, and I will even buy you a pint.
I don't know if it adds to the story, but every time I see that man I laugh and laugh and laugh
Re: We want Manga.
If they go down that route, then what is to stop the Cronos corporation starts pumping out hyper-zoanoids?

There is this thing right that most call the internet but the part we use is called the world wide web. Its incredibly useful as its full of all kinds of stuff and things. Lets call some of the stuff and things information. Are you following me so far Shades?
Good, now one of the useful things about this is the ability to search for facts. And one of these facts that you can search is how Nintendo feel about some of the similarity of the flappy birds backgrounds.
Thank you xx
is it criminal watching criminals?
The business owner confirmed that he had found the tapes in the basement of the old police station, after purchasing the site two months before, and was planning on watching them for entertainment.
I'm all warm and fuzzy
Thanks El Reg, antique code show always makes me feel all chipper and squidgy inside.
That won't cut the mustard I'm afraid. once the OS is loaded on you won't have much wiggle room for apps.
Regarding shock invective beginning with "cu-"
Ok I was curious, and now one of them CU types wants to expel me from the building. Of well, the pubs open so I might as well get cu*ted.

Maplins is crack to tech whores
I want to call you Mr Dabbs, by every expletive I know! And what should prompt such a reaction, well duh!
You see it's Friday, and on Fridays I am more open to suggestion. So before even commenting I found myself browsing on the maplins website and immediately thinking about this....L68BH
OK lets remove the emotion from the argument and take another look, but this time factoring the data protection act.
In that instance Apple are in the right, they have a process in place that is protecting the date at their reputation.
However, I am not a cold hard logic machine (that's my wife) and therefore they are been bastards on this occasion.
Well done El Reg
but your user base isn't just within the ring of doom. So if you could just email me the pint instead please.
"Or maybe I should call sue Microsoft because my pirated version of office is full of malware?"
That's not malware, that's how it's meant to run.
Whilst I do a happy dance when my phone tells me its on 4G its mainly because where I actually live I don't actually get 2G. Now you may say that's because I live in a quaint village on the Norfolk broads, and that is true. But seriously it's 2014, and about time EE realised that the country isn't surrounded by the M25.
Not in my village, if I use sky then I'm actually a BT connect customer and that means I get a 40GB download limit and traffic management, compared to the same service from BT which is unlimited and unmanaged.
But Mr Dabbs
We may not be cash rich, but surely we are all warm friendly glowy types.
oh soddit I want the money!
I think that.....
El Reg should have a beard competition!
You sir get an upvote.
Although I am getting my hobo look sorted today - bring back the goatee!

that's a deal breaker......pass
a crime to mutilate or alter the seal of any department or agency of the United States
It is also a crime to use the seal without permission, and getting permission is an incredible feat. One that I failed on. As I had applied retrospectively to use the seal on an intranet site the following thing happened.
1. I received a stern email saying no.
2. I received a very stern letter saying no.
3. I received a phone call from the FBI stating that I had perpetrated a federal crime and that if I didn't desist then they would attempt extradition.
All I wanted to do is hot link using the seal as a click button so that employees in America could see health and safety information.
Can you imagine the HSE taking such action in the UK?
So is this the end for.....
Hahahaha jokes on you - I am ginger!
although I do prefer to be called south african sunset.
And before you get your panties in a bunch, gingers don't have souls.
but you get an upvote for calling me big guy :-)
I own both, a sammy and an iPhone, and If you put iOS on the sammy then maybe it would be OK.
But putting android on an iPhone would be like putting a "Kick Me" sign on a ginger kid, fun for a few mins and then just wrong!
How can we make people part with their cash? I know make it curvy......it didn't work in the 50's and it wont work now.
I have read the dumbed down version and the super dumbed down version as well as the version that has been aimed at the totally clever but have no friends people....
And I still only have a very very basic understanding of the concept.

Is it still Trolling
If you mean every single word of it?

Re: fish museum - @Captain Hogwash
That would be the National Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby
My job there was in the futuristic exhibition loosely based around fish called "the posiedon experiment", it involved artefacts having their memory read by the organic super computer known as the organism. It culminated in a motion cinema experience which explored the memory of a long dead fisherman.
Whilst I want Bletchley to keep going
I do understand the cost to keep it open, even with volunteers......But this is wrong, I actually used to work as an actor in a fish museum (year I know right) but the thing that amazed me about that role was summed up in this article, and seemingly I think it applies to any niche historical museum.
"namely a British quirkiness arising from an extensive range of exhibits manned by volunteers who knew their stuff and were happy to share it."
This was the case when I visited Bletchley the first time, I had an hour long conversation about valves and how they work. The chap also gave me an up close tour of the machine room because I had an enthusiasm that he liked. What actor would do that?
Have a Break.......
have a chip cracked
Lexmark have one of these on the market for £250 with enough ink to print a keyring.
They should, as it returns relevant searches without the con sites
Doesn't the OS look just like windows?
Re: 410km? WTF?
It says the cable length is 410km
This is typical of BT, they followed an as the buzby flies method of cable deployment.
You cant trademark a word that has been around for donkeys years.
What will I ask for when I buy by cough candy?
Who was the bertie bassetesque robot in Dr Who, The happiness patrol?
And, won't this confuse people that want to buy a large load washing machine?
Actually the last one is quite a valid point (not that the other two are not), but Candy appliances are already prevalent throughout Europe.
This needs investment
How long until we can eat the computer to prevent the feds from getting our data?
*the one with the light dressing in the pocket
I was just chatting to Mrs Gnome about this the other week, as I could see this happening.
Her reply was essentially - I have just vomited in my mouth.

Re: OY You lot, over here.
It will attract my comment...
Frankly without the bees we might as well take ourselves out into the pastures and blow our bloody brains out. It's time to give these happy insects a helping hand.
