"Not sure what your problem is really."
That's funny, because it's the the thing that causes most complaints at Gmail 'help'.

"Given that the diameter of the Earth is approximately 8,000 miles, if you plot the position at which the sun is directly overhead at the equator, roughly how fast does this move?"
Your question makes it sound like the sun goes round the earth. No wonder they were confused.

"Using a micro-USB cable, the current iPhone charger, having a USB socket, is already able to charge any mobile phone conforming to this new standard."
Apparently not. I was looking for an additional charger for my X1 which uses a charger-with-USB-socket & a usb-to-mini-usb cable. The shop had an apple one but I was informed that it detects, & only provides charge to, apple products. So I got a motorola one instead.
If it was indeed Marcus Brigstocke commenting upon 'Above the Below' then the phrase would have been coined in 2003. Hence some references to this latest stunt as Twat Dangle Part 2.
So if twat dangle is the event then is the person doing it a dangle-twat or a dangletard?
Paris, cos she doesn't have a cunning stunt either!
"if someone finds out that my password here is 12345678 he'll be able to POST MESSAGES!! that would be horrible.."
Seeing that El Reg doesn't require unique user IDs how would you know?
Or maybe this guy knows my password:

I've seen OpenID on a few sites - e.g. clicktime.com
The rest of the world plays football & America plays soccer.
The rest of the world plays rugby & America plays American Football.
The rest of the world plays cricket & America plays baseball.
Americans do this because it makes them feel like they invented something rather than tinkered with (subverted) it. & then they can be the best at it.
So it is with Christianity in America. This cult of fundamentalism is irrelevant to global Christianity.
You may know the old saying, "The Gospel Truth". Ever wondered why not "The Bible Truth"? Because throughout history, until now in American cults, Christians have never been expected to have a literal interpretation of the whole Bible.
These nutters need bringing down.
Paris makes more sense..
There's nothing 'symbolic' about the eating of the cosmic zombie Jew's flesh. (just wanted to clear that up)
If the unit of length is 1m, then the unit of area should be 1m², and the unit of volume 1m³.
The weight of water in 1m³ should be 1g, so the density of water should be 1g/m³.
1000 square metres should be 1km² as algebra suggests.
At least imperial doesn't pretend it wasn't cobbled together.
Why measure round the world to come up with basically a yard? If they wanted a yard we could have given them one, & if a yard equalled a metre from day one, we'd probably be completely metric now.
"as average IQ in Western societies increased throught the 20th century"?!!
Ah yes, that's why all the kids are getting 'A's at A-level & going to university these days. Unfortunately they had to sacrifice the part of the brain that deals with spelling, grammar & pronunciation to gain all that extra intelligence.
Clearly nobody now believes in astrology, crystals, homeopathy or bad-things-that-happen-living-next-to-mobile-phone-masts.
When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing; they believe in anything.
BTW man does not get fat by cake alone. But it sure helps!
why they can't give us a couple of dozen cards each to keep in our various trousers, jackets, bags. I mean it wouldn't matter if someone else get hold of them. They'd be useless in the wrong hands, wouldn't they... wouldn't they?
(doesn't matter which coat I get, I have an ID card in every one)
I found the original story:
so I guess not.
When the hype started, it was download /or/ luxury edition. So I paid a couple of quid for the download & felt a bit ripped off when the (normal) CD was announced. Only purchasing from a Hong Kong based retailer prevented the total cost exceeding what I would have paid for a CD anyway a few years ago.
Incidentally I have noticed now that as I am buying more limited edition vinyl singles/EPs from small labels, I then get the (drm-free) download from iTunes+ because I can't remember how long it is since I've had a record player!
Martian 'cos maybe he has a rational explanation for this behaviour.
Please, please, everyone blackhole mail you don't want.
Most of my spam are responses to mails using addresses in my domain name.
"We have detected that this message is SPAM"
If the filter programs would scan the message body & send replies to the addresses it found there, rather than the from/reply address which is always bogus, my spam box would be practically empty.
Just don't be snooty & miss the whole point.
Most people probably do use their ISP address & aren't having a problem.
Most of us (reg reader types) probably do have our own domains but not necessarily our own mail servers so we spoof our domain email addresses in outlook, etc & this suddenly not working is what the article is about.
I was just looking at google apps this week for our family domain & that has to be the way to go. My parents already have gmail accounts (the 'sent on behalf of' kludge seems to bother them less) so if I can get their existing mail successfully swapped into the apps accounts we'll be away.
There was a man who regularly flew to the US. Every week, for work (or so he claimed), he landed at JFK with his laptop.
And every week, the customs officer at the airport searched the laptop, convinced this man was smuggling something. But every week, there was nothing illegal on the laptop.
This went on for years and years, with the customs officer never finding anything.
Some time later, both men had retired. But they happened to meet. The customs officer turned to the man and said "Look, I know you were smuggling something. But I have to admit, I've no idea what! I don't work for customs any more, so can you PLEASE tell me what it was!!"
The man replied "laptops".
Why isn't the density of water 1g/m³ ?
Now that would be simple.
(yes a gramme would be equal to a tonne)
Why isn't a litre equal to 1m³ ?
Why isn't an are equal to 1m² ?
Why isn't 1km² equal to 1000m² ? (it would follow algebra rules, which would be nice)
Why do I worry about this cr@p?
What Wikipedia is not: "fun, anymore!"
Most of us wanting to get reliable information goto a reliable source. The only thing WP was good for was stuff not contained in reliable sources, ie trivia. video-game characters, old comic-books & obscure bands, etc.
Now WP is to be "taken seriously" all that good, fun stuff is being deleted & what we have left is a glorified dmoz of citation links with uninspiring narrative to connect them.
We love Stephen so much that both my facebook identities joined the group.
& as we're both British we won't be doing him any good, much like roughly 90% of the group who either aren't over 18 or resident in South Carolina.
Still, it's the thought that counts. Now I really must start a group to get The Colbert Report broadcast over here after the Daily Show.
