It's quite a tale - and one that, frankly, I'd have paid cold hard cash to watch.

"he's going to have an epically large about of egg and cum on his face if the court finds against him."
Blimey - these Swedes certainly deal out a harsh punishment !
See, young people ? Porn really does teach you more than just the foreign words for "yes!" and "harder!" ! Who knew I was learning about Swedish criminology as well.
"This is the guy who had the musicians miming at his inauguration? I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him."
Indeed. At least you (didn't) know where you were with Bush, and you were happy in that ignorance. Imagine - miming musicians ! What's the world coming to ! I'm sure it was by presidential order that the deception took place... Is it too late to get Bush back in ?
I find this a bit difficult to believe. Are we talking a sweetener or flavour enhancer here, as in to be used sparingly like a herb ? Coz I like a bit of trifle at xmas, and even if I started now I doubt I'd produce the full order in time... Chances are by next week I'd be half blind and with palms as red as Gary Glitter's at a school play.
Still, it's a good way to hoodwink the missus (or other as appropriate etc) into trying it out. Once she's wolfed down the blancmange, you can hit her with "see, I told you it wasn't as bad as you made out !!!" and from there on, no further complaints :)
isn't it more likely that your ISP or mail server spots the influx of spam more readily as it moves through the alphabet/spam-run and closes the hole accordingly ?
One email to "albert" from a certain IP is less likely to raise an eyebrow than 10 similar ones to "albert", "betty", "charlie" etc...
Simple heuristics, no ?
I say we bring in a ringer - let's get, say, some tidy page-3 sort in a nuns outfit, stick a great wodge on at William Hill and then retire to the bahamas. Who's with me ?
In fact, Sarah, how about we go in on this together, split the profits 50/50 ? I'm sure you'd look very fetching in a nun's outfit, based upon nothing at all as I have no idea what you look like.

Had a cracker as a young man containing a rather rude version of "Oor Wullie".
I could probably draw the whole thing from memory, but will just remind readers of the strap-line in case anyone has a jpg ;)
"Willie, Soapy and Fat Bob, think f***ng Daphne's just the job!
But Daphne thinks it is a farce, when they try to stick it up her wellyougettheideawiththat"...
Anyone got a copy of this smutty classic? Answers on a saucy postcard please !
I mentioned they were in Inverness last week - what gives ? :P
That aside - my mate snapped one of these devices on a few lamposts in his street that turned up the same day the Google-mobile was about.
A quick call to the Highland Council street lighting department confirmed they knew nothing about it, and that it should definitely not have been put there without their permission.
So, over to you, readers. What the hell is it ???
what privacy concerns ? I'd love my nekkid sunbathing bits to be immortalized in streetmap-glory for eternity (or until next scan). Bring them on, say I !!
In fact, in that street, there's a rather lovely lady whose address I could give out, if they could just loiter round hers for a bit. Cheers !
It was in Inverness last week, never saw it myself (so nothing to tell the grandkids about), but various friends did.
Curiously, some odd-shaped aerial-looking devices popped up on a few lampposts at the same time. Still not got to the bottom of that one....
Like an inverted capital F, they are cable-tied on. Any ideas, helicopter-watchers ?
So, this guy had a knife, got in an argument and stabbed someone ? Where it happened is irrelevant - the same thing could have happened at the Cinema or in MacDonalds.
It speaks volumes about the pair of them though - one stabbing someone over an argument, and the other going home to get his knife to stab the guy back.
Let Darwin sort it out, I say !
(Kudos to a friend, however, who when I emailed him this story responded with "Did he drop a glowing bundle of cash?")
Damnit - and I'd paid the deposit for my holiday to Borneo and everything !!! That's that out the window then. :(
However, being in Inverness, I feel I have to speak up for (some of) the natives. We're not all that hairy up here ! Especially the ginger ones who for understandable reasons keep it cropped short. Sure, we have our fair share of knuckle draggers or "chimpanchavs" as I will now call them, but I'd wager it's no more than any other city of this latitude.
Perhaps this loving christian fellow is maybe trying to retire on the insanity plea or something ? He gives the rest of the Wee Free virgin-policeman-torching, wicker-man-worshipping churchgoers round these parts a bad name.
Further, it's a sad day indeed when your loving God turns out to have such a cruel sense of humour - surely, he'd be only too delighted to have all his creatures in a big love-in ?
Yours, homo-erectus-ly etc etc
> "I'm absolutely sickened and appalled," Pete John, who has tried to interest authorities, told The Register this week.
Get a grip, I told Pete John this week. With all that goes on in the world, if that's the kind of thing that sickens and appalls you then I'm surprised you have the wherewithall to get out of bed in the morning.
That said, keep up the good fight (when you've got your health back, naturally :)) !
"The recipients, however, were "not inclined to take advantage of the wooden phalluses and instead reported the matter to police"."
So, how come he was charged with sexual molestation then ? Surely "suggestion to self-inflict sexual molestation" would be more appropriate ?
tsk tsk tsk...
From a Health & Safety pov however, there could have been some nasty splinters - so probably as well to return them.
The major problem with the Nokia N810 is - the Asus EEE Pc. The Eee PC is cheaper and more pc-alike (that's assuming you can get hold of one, of course).
And this coming from an N800 owner. It was a superb device when I bought it - and it still is - but for all the Eee offers for less money (albeit in a bigger form factor), it's getting harder to justify the Nokia.
"'the other reason I'm not buying a Blu-Ray player is the fact that there's no guarantee the player I buy today will work with the disks I buy tomorrow.'
No, you ARE guaranteed to be able to play the movie, which let's face it is the important part. It's all the extras that may not be compatible."
Now who's cherry-picking ? If you're content to only have part of the product you paid for working, then good luck to you.
"'I guess any blu-ray manufacturers who aren't Sony can start getting concerned round about now'
Again, No. The blu-ray standards have to be available to ALL consortium members. This is not a sony owned proprietory format, lots of different companies are involved."
Yep, available to all. And since DVD was invented, we've seen that manufacturers just can't adhere to standards - remember when The Matrix wouldn't play on a fair few players? My point is that with a moving target (as people become more adept at BR authoring, they'll push to the latest standards - this has always been the way it works), this situation is likely to only get worse.
Well, despite owning the HD-DVD for the 360 (which is far too noisy to watch a film in peace with anyway), I'm actually glad this is all over.
It's been far too annoying for far too long. So despite the fact that I'll eventually buy a Blu-Ray player and consign the 360 kit to the cupboard, I'll at least be able to console (haha) myself that I wasn't one of the really early adopters who paid hundreds for their kit.
I'm sure that this experience is something everyone will remember next time the AV industry moves on a leap. The consumer gets screwed in the short term, but when the time comes, the manufacturere will get their's when they want us to open our wallets for the next big thing.
Of course, the other reason I'm not buying a Blu-Ray player is the fact that there's no guarantee the player I buy today will work with the disks I buy tomorrow. You know, what with the standard not being set in stone etc.
Hmm. I wonder if any manufacturer sells a blu-ray equipped device, that can easily connect to the internet for updates for those troublesome discs ? You know, someone with some inside knowledge about blu-ray itself, the kind of manufacturer who really knows the system inside out? The kind of manufacturer who has shipped the most blu-ray units out there to date ? I mean, that would have to be the most compatible device out there, and thus you'd be guaranteed a smooth experience if you bought one of their players.
Or to put it another way - I guess any blu-ray manufacturers who aren't Sony can start getting concerned round about now...
>To be honest I was more concerned with "I was on a farm and I saw a robotic arm milking a cow. "
Reminds me of an old Emo Philips gag...
(to be read while wriggling about uncomfortably on a chair, waving arms around and pulilng your own hair).
I was on the farm the other day, and my father said "Emo, go milk those cows". I came back later and he asked "How did you get on?", and I replied: "The one with the horns nearly killed me!!". He said, "You idiot Emo - that was the bull!!"
So, now I'm not feeling so bad I only got half a cup...
Does that mean that if I happen across any blue-eyed couples, that I should grab my crufix/pitchfork and denounce them (loudly) as aberrations, in-breeders and general against-God's-law types ?
Cool. But tough luck for you, Iceland. Prepare to burn !
