"What about ticking everything, or at least everything that you could bullshit your way through?"
Isn't that standard procedure for such things?
Hardly- just taking it easy in the pre-xmas lull, I suspect... got to lull the mooks...
Back to form! 2018 is looking up - at last!
" If you want to say shit, say it."
Agreed. Even the POTUS says shith**e.
Your ideas intrigue me, and I should like to subscribe to your newsletter.
Tits on a fish.
Re: Likely won't pass, but...
"Who's 'we', kimosabe?"
The Cowboys in charge of the 'Western Culture'.
Re: Funny how...
Sounds like something an 'SJW' would say...
Re: CBP is committed to preserving the civil rights and civil liberties of those
"CBP is committed to preserving the civil rights and civil liberties of those
who carry US passport. "
Strictly speaking, that means the majority of US citizens can F.O. too, not having a US passport...
Re: Lateral Thinking
"Even OXO cubes seem to lack any salt nowadays."
So does my salt cellar! This explains that!
(although it may just need filling...)
Re: sachet of sugar... do the trick.
"It'll be fun when the government eventually realise artificial sweeter is linked to dementia."
Yep. They won't like the competition for their jobs, that's for sure.
Re: Lateral Thinking
Have you ever tried putting sugar in a fizzy drink?
It should be tried once, in a pub, with a packet of sugar from the coffee bar area.
In someone else's pint.
Re: Computers fear me!
I had a sticker for years in my wallet that said something along the lines of:-
"Never let this equipment know just how important and essential it is to the workings of the company, as it will immediately cease working for no reason."
I was given it by a hardware Eng, (DEC I think) who used to stick them on kit that behaved oddly...
Re: BOFS! What are they like?
"BOFS! What are they like?"
This confirms to me that using 1709 build of Windows 10 creates more problems than solutions.
There you go.
Re: Someone cue the goddamn carousel music.
"Please. Thanks. I'll bring enough voodoo rattles so everyone can get in on the dance."
Thanks! I'll bring the dead chickens from the Unix fridge.
"Also, people installing the Windows Server patches should ensure they are enabled, too. They are disabled by default due to the potential performance hit involved. "
Re: Huge Baby Huge
"Yes, it appears to be a rewrite of most of the core pieces of the Windows directory "
For real this time?
Not just "rewritten from the ground up" like all the New Versions?
"...images clearly recognizable as a cat"
What if the cat is covered in guacamole? What then???!!??
Re: Nice pets
I find pet gaucamoles hard to hit with the mallet.
Re: Philosophically intriguing.
By David Langford. Quite Creepy.
You know too much, Citizen...
It doesn't even make juice?
Quite the opposite- you need the door open so you can jam the 'juiceable' packet into it and close to squeeze out the 'goodness'. This is purely to stop you rotting your teeth on 'juice'.
Sounds like you need the prototype Otto - An Otto-cycle 2hp engine on a series II Landrover gearbox. That should shift your bolt...
Re: Accidental Aardvark
I shall, in the meantime, continue to run Windows, and grin. :)
That's not a grin - that's you gritting your teeth.
Polar bears live in Africa.
As do penguins!
Re: Next up...
Thank you for choosing Comcast long Distance Internet...
Re: If we can't trust corporations....
"whom else could we trust?"
Well, the US trust someone called InGod, but I think they might be a corporation that prints dollars?
What goes through someone's head when they do that?
Sometimes a projectile.
Re: I've, umm... done most of that stuff
"Do I need to get written permission..."
Yes. It is, though a pain, called Change Management.
Re: Machine learning....
"I still don't understand ..."
"Like the ones that can buy Range Rovers and simply ignore potholes."
Ignore potholes? Range Rover drivers slow down to single figures for bloody level crossings. Hitting a pothole in one would probably kill them.
Supersized Shopping Vehicles. Pah.
Re: For the next experiment.
Fill a bag with salt water and see if it can replace a BT manager.
"...IP over Rab C?"
That will make him mad. Pass him a towel and run!
Only if you're 2 metres from the exchange.
Nobody is - hence the slow speeds...
Re: instead of writing in C#, devs use a language called Q#.
"In which all code will be both terrible crap and a work of genius at the same time.
Until you observe it. Then it'll just be terrible crap."
Isn't that already true?
Re: ... a computer that computes in a billion parallel universes at the same time... -- NOT
"What if we're in a sub-universe?"
A ravishing evernew place called Underverse.? Threshold! Take us to Threshold! No, not Redmond...
Re: To enable traditional coders to transition to new concepts more easily...
"...they've retained the same format of error message we are all familiar with e.g.,"
"An Unknown Error has Occurred Somewhere Unknown."
"I ran the code while my cat was snoozing under the monitor and now I can't tell if he's alive or dead."
Try moving the mouse...
"If it helps them find a version of Windows without slurping and TIFKAM, I'm all for it."
Hardly - they'll know everything about you instantly, and have infinite places to hide the start menu.
Re: Despair over Brexit and Trump?
You had me up to : "Despite all the leftist media propaganda".
Re: Despair over Brexit and Trump?
"And people actually voted for him on purpose??"
They heard him say the quote above, and decided that he was much smarter than they were.
Run people over for no reason. Refuse to start and then explode if you look at anther model.
Encourage owners of marque 'A' to war against owners of marque 'B'...
And so on. see the Owner's Bible* for further examples...
* Holy Haines, King James version.
Sounds God like to me. The past becomes the future?
"In WWII the bomb disposal squads never got a do-over when they made that mistake."
"Cut the red wire..."
"Now is a bad time to admit that I'm colour-blind..."
"She sounds batty all right."
Nah, she's just a Creepy fucker.
What's this goo on the bed!?!
Re: Been warning of this since long before...
" Air is invaluable, but I don't pay anything to breathe."
Get your ass to Mars!
Then get back to me.
Re: Who is behind all this? and government spies...
"You buy, we sell. #shadobrokers is being back in spades.""
Can I buy an Interceptor and a purple wig?
