New Bond film title voted a 'Licence to Thrill!'



It's because Licence to Thrill sounds more like Licence to Kill than From Russia With Love does to it's From Russia With dud. Although the second one did make me laugh >_>

If only you'd thought of a poll with snappy answers, maybe there would have been a different reaction!

Dwarves hidden in sports bags target Swedish coaches



Well, if it's from the Sun and you didn't see it in your local paper... it's probably made up :)

Tiscali bandwidth throttling flub fix flops



"Tiscali's attempts to restore anything close to reasonable internet service for its customers following a botched software upgrade have failed.

Reg readers are still complaining of blockages and pathetic line speeds on the budget ISP."

Restore? When I used tiscali it would be as it is currently being described 50% of the time. Useless for doing basically anything (games/downloads, even browsing). Been very happy since I moved away from their useless service. Poor pipex users :(

Smurf gives Paris Hilton a mouthful


Did he...

Did he shout at her until he was blue in the face?

Dell punts $4450 World of Warcraft notebook



Exactly, I like wow too but I don't really see who they are aiming this at. Besides, the horde logo is wasted when it's not in red :)

Man sentenced to 20 years in murder of online rival



She used a picture of her daughter? What was her eventual plan here, to get her to go and meet them for her?

US man sets himself on fire and cuts off his own arm


Well, stupid but...

Nice work hacking off his own melting arm with a penknife...

Korean cyber junkies march off to bootcamp


Quote from a participant

I'm not thinking about games now, so maybe this will help. From now on, maybe I'll just spend five hours a day online.

Don't give booze to elephants, sobs Paris Hilton


<title goes here>

"The elephants get drunk all the time. It is becoming really dangerous. We need to stop making alcohol available to them."

I love how she makes it sound like they are teenagers getting hold of booze. Surely they are breaking in to where ever the alcohol is and nicking it?

Also, when an elephant drinks does it remember what it was up to when it wakes up the next day...?

Hundreds for chop as Tiscali launches Pipex jobs purge


Tiscali was the worst ISP I ever had.

Poor pipex users :(

Cops pull plugs on TV-links, claim 'facilitation of infringement'


I was wondering where it had gone.

Perhaps it got in trouble because it would display the clip (tv, film, etc) inside a frame which was hosted by tv-links. Not sure if there was a banner ad or anything displayed in the frame though (ABP for the win).

Still I'll miss it even though many of the links seemed to be dead.
