While Microsoft griped about NSA exploit stockpiles, it stockpiled patches: Friday's WinXP fix was built in February
Re: Plenty of blame to go around
Hunt won't get the sack - he's delivering the exact NHS service the tories want.
By running the NHS into the ground they can point to it and say, look it's shit, but look how shiny this private hospital is. Death by a thousand cuts, literally.
Are they kidding?
The NPC drivers in GTAV drive like easily startled gibbons. They panic at the slightest hint of violence and drive with reckless abandon. Making random lane changes and last minute cornering decisions without any indicators... oh wait.
TMP score hands down for me. It gave us the blaster beam!
Wardrobe trivia, one thing the cast insisted on for WOK was a new uniform. The TMP uniforms were uncomfortable in the extreme, (a mistake repeated for the first few seasons of TNG).
For all it's plodding pace, you can't fault the performances. Nimoy is spot on in this film. The first time Kirk, McCoy and Spock meet, there's a point where he totally blanks McCoy's jibe ("Well it's lucky for you we're heading that way") that makes me laugh every time I watch. Also ("You haven't changed a bit, you're still as warm and sociable as ever." "Nor have you, doctor, as your continued predilection for irrelevancy demonstrates".)
Lots of great moments for Shatner as well, like Kirk getting lost on his own ship, pushing the crew too far and generally being a tool just to get his command back.
Re: Sure beats...
I read another article (on Kotaku) about this chap today. Apparently he very nearly called his "game" Half Life 3...
Re: Don't quote me
It depends. Later versions of warp technology possibly allow the warp field to be manipulated without risk to the crew. There are warp capable shuttles by the time Picard was commanding the Enterprise D, so I guess they got the kinks ironed out.
Perhaps bigger warp fields are harder to manage safely so the nacelles have to be set away from the ship? This would make a kind of fictional-universe sense as it's usually the bigger ships that have nacelles set away from the main hull. Defiant is pretty small compared to a Galaxy class.
(I'm trying to think of a federation ship that breaks this 'rule'. The Nebula class possibly, it has a Galaxy class size saucer section with a Miranda style nacelle layout.)
Probably thinking too hard about this now.
Re: PC LOAD LETTER
Our current office printer actually offers to print your document on whatever paper size is currently loaded. On the negative side, it will happily default to whatever is in the manual feed tray, (especially if you happen to have left some very expensive paper in there).
Re: Office Space
PC LOAD LETTER
What the fuck does that even mean?
That graph pad stuff has been around for years.
A couple of us had little sample versions we picked up from a materials trade show when I was at college, (over 25 years ago, bloody hell). It's a great idea. Pretty sure mine got nicked when we switched studios.
Alternative types are often the most conformist, despite their appearance. Not all are of course, but I suspect most people will waive their right to privacy in this case.
I imagine Glastonbury would face more of a backlash due to it's size and the fact it's sold as being a bit alternative and hippy (despite the fact it isn't any more). Reading and Leeds might go for it, depends on what sort of backlash they got on Tw*tter or F*cebook.
Currently as I type, the tw*tter stream is filled fill starving Download punters as their RFID payment system isn't working. So I guess it's sorted itself out.
Well I for one welcome our robot overlords.

Re: KITT, come quick!
Came here to post a similar comment, was not disappointed to find yours. Here, have a Knight Rider intro.
Can't promise the mechanic will be as nice looking as the one that worked on KITT, sadly.
Re: I loved the top down GTA Games
Quote: "You're aware that most countries drive on the right hand side of the road rather than the left hand side (UK), right?"
That doesn't make them correct though.
I came here for this comment, I was not disappointed.
If only that Monolith had been more instructive.
This was the only art tutorial.
All the other tutorials were about bludgeoning your rivals with crude bone weapons.
The only reason you might want to add ice cubes is to add water to the drink. Some people consider this the best way to drink whisk(e)y as it improves the taste on the palate.
Re: "he installed a chip in his arm"
It has his name and address on it. It's so the vet can tell who Warwick is when he gets lost.
I have to say I'm amazed they are still a going concern considering how horrible RealPlayer was.
Bring back Bill Posters.scr
is all I have to say on the matter.
It didn't end well in Mega City One when terrorists attacked Power Tower
Be careful what you wish for, citizen.
Re: The Soundtrack...
Ha ha ha, I wondered if anyone would mention this. Used to put it on in my mates car. Sadly it was a Vauxhall Chevette, not a Ferrari.
they expressly said a while ago that they didn't want any of their songs used in adverts.
FX570 was a superb calculator
Plus the hex function meant you could spell FAECEE5.
Kids today, etc.
It does make you wonder what sort of hardware our banking network is running on.
I've read some horror stories that suggest some of it is built on very very old hardware indeed.
You could argue that 8 was the longest serving.
Since the time between him and 9 appearing on TV was far longer than any of the others were around.
"Sarah Palin is a hot-looking babe, not white trash at all!"
No. Just no.
Magenta cock-alike for the win!
Just imagine it throbbing on the launch pad, before thrusting for the sky and finally, flopping back down to earth, it's payload spent.
The only thing I got from this is that parts of Philadelphia
look like bits of northern industrial towns here in the UK. Even down to the terraced streets, which is weird and looks out of place somehow in the good old US of A. Like someone plonked Coronation Street in the Fresh Princes old stomping ground (pre Bel-Air, of course).
I think this project is generally a good idea, especially if it provokes debate and maybe makes someone think twice before they make an unnecessary comment to a lady.
In my day you doffed your hat to a lady and left it at that. If she was interested she dropped a 'kerchief for you to retrieve and you went from there, chaperone permitting of course.
Whoever devised quick time events
should be made to sit on the stairs for an hour and think about what they've done.
I still think this would make a good sitcom.
For extra creepiness, Ricky Gervais could play Julian Assange, hanging around the office, making paper planes, playing Solitaire and perving over the secretaries.
We just need to get over there and restart the engines then the grand tour of the galaxy can begin.
A big magenta cock would look great soaring through the skies.

I wonder if she inherited his hair?
Fortunately she doesn't seem to have inherited his looks.
Phil Collins was once described as permanently looking like he had a stocking pulled over his face.
The soundtrack to GTA was a thing of beauty. I used to have a copy I played in the car.
Don't forget Matt Berry
Re: Gabe Newell
He'll pass. The conditions of his contract stipulate delivery of Half Life 3 before the end of the century.
>"Given how tiny they are" -- Given that they [MicroSD cards] are made from metal it would be extremely easy to find with one of their metal detector wands. If you hid it in your luggage it would be likely be located within 30 seconds and removed within a minute or two.
If you hid it in or near a metallic part of your luggage, how would they know? The wands are pretty general about where metal is and unless there are clear signs of tampering they're probably going to miss it?
The plot of this sounds suspiciously like that of 'Lifeforce'.
I wonder if the makers watched Quatermass and thought, lets make that, only with a naked woman wandering about and vampires.
Re: Stock Market
'big greasy moose dick.'
I doff my cap to you, sir.
I have a 7 button mouse for gaming which is probably as many buttons as I'll ever need on a mouse.
Never really enjoyed using Apple mice though, always found them a bit uncomfortable and the one button restrictive. (Almost like they were trying to prove a point). Which is weird 'cos if you plugged in a 3 button MS mouse you could use the other buttons just like you can on a PC (or you could, it's a few years since I tried).
I believe newer Apple mice have other options like some sort of side grips to access other functions?
You dodged the issue of where you're from nicely there..
You can get real meat kebabs in the UK, used to go to a place in Sheffield that did amazing lamb kebabs with big chunks of lamb, mmmmmm.
Sounds like most of your English eating experiences have been post-pub. When your hangover subsides, have a look round and there are some fabulous eating places in GB.
Re: When I'm feeling frisky, I like to add pepperoni under the cheese for that budget pizza taste.
I don't know whether to be happy or not, why are you crying?
When I'm feeling frisky, I like to add pepperoni under the cheese for that budget pizza taste.
For the Hestons amongst you, before adding the cheese, spread a layer of pesto on the toast, then add the cheese and some Worcestershire sauce. Works well with a good mature cheddar or tasty Lancashire cheese (not too hard or it doesn't melt properly).
I love cheese on toast.
Re: Baby steps
I like the way you shoehorned some EDL style politics into a discussion about ISP content filtering. Clever wording - cheers.
Ha ha, this remnds me. I have
a drawing database that started life in Paradox, moved on to MS Access and currently resides in MS Excel. Twenty two years that database has been alive in one form or another. It's older than my kids.
Paris, cos her most famous work has probably been converted into dozens of different formats, ensuring her place in cinematic history.
Doesn't work on my phone.
When I try to capture video it just hangs then goes back to the menu scren. It isn't working at all for others, if Play store comments are anything to go by.
It makes no sense to this user to upset your core...
... business with something that only really satisfies one form factor.
That form factor being the one the majority of your users are not working with.
