Oh, that Yosemite
I thought the book was about the National Park. 0/10 would not misconstrue again.

I think that cabbies do have a stranglehold on the market, but I also think that there are going to be some things that will never be economical to provide and so will never be handled by the free market. Cabs should transport disabled passengers - and shouldn't just leave a passenger in the lurch if they show up and find that they are in a wheelchair. That's the sort of thing that needs regulation, at least in my mind.
I don't disagree that we have too much regulation now, but no regulation isn't much better.
"Back to the female aspect - appreciate the effort they make to look nice, and don't forget to show that appreciation. It's a positive investment."
How can a comment that ends with this phrase get downvoted? Truer words were never spoken, and a good piece of advice too blokes everywhere. Try to limit yourselves to women you're involved with, or want to become involved with though, lest you come across as a perv...
Hacker friend was boffing daughter, dad was looking to find a way to throw the book at him. Or dad decided to press his advantage and write him up for anything remotely justifiable once the 'hacking' came to light.
Optional: Hacker broke up with daughter, dad extra pissed off cos daughter is taking it badly. Decides to use this as a way to get him back...
Ok, so they're not all from this year (not even close), but: Braid, Limbo, World of Goo, P.B Winterbottom, Machinarium, the Bit.Trip series, Fluidity, & Night Sky., Next year, Botanicula looks good, plus Miegakure if it ever gets released.
Basically, if you want to find good games, you'll hear about them & find 'em. If you don't, you won't.
It's fun, though rather frustrating at times... I don't know about you lot but I seem to be consistently matched up with players who are twice my rank - I'm ~ 35, everyone else is over 60. Then I get my ass handed to me.
I mean, I would get stomped on anyway, but the stomping seems a little cruel & unusual....
You know how you're always saying how back in the day computers used to be gadgets that you could play and tinker with, instead of locked-down devices for the mindless consumer? And how hours spent exploring in your basement gave you the curiosity to explore and learn?
This is how kids do it these days. Celebrate it, don't knock it. We all share curiosity and drive but express it in different ways.
Now get orf my lawn.
Kind of a bitch, I think!
Him: 'Am surprised something so small could cause so much interest'
Her: 'Well you would know about that, wouldn't you?'
Completely unprompted, it seems - though without seeing his reaction hard to tell if it was a friendly jibe or a mean one. She didn't seem to smile too much after, either.
I was left thinking 'Oh, snap! (Yes, I did think that) - where did *that* come from!'
I have to say, I still don't see the practicality of cloud computing. Your corporate (or personal) data is managed offsite by a third party, with all the risk that that entails, and you need a super-fast permanent internet connection for something as mundane as adding the cover sheet to your TPS report.
Risks seem much much bigger than rewards...
Or am I missing something?
(That's not rhetorical - I'm not known for being bright)
Actually, not quite. Only a small proportion of my friends were on myspace or Friendster.
The number of friends / girls who snubbed me a school / ex-bullies who are now bald / people who I'd actually lost touch with and wanted to reconnect with, who *were* on FB but not on its predecessors was about an order of magnitude...
...But I listened to Chris Moyles (a perennial reg fave) commentate on the NZ game this morning (US time) and found it very amusing.
As far as the England game goes, if they had played like they did in the second half for the entire game (as in 'oh shit we might actually lose and our WAGS would dump us!') the score could have been 2-0 or even 3-0. Oh well.
Why is it that when I was a kid, Radio 2 was something yer dad listened to, and now I'm approaching early middle age (yikes!), Radio 2 is *still * something yer dad listens to?
(I mix Radio 1, 1Xtra (no, really!) & Radio 4 to get Radio 2.5Xtra, meself)
Like this point if you noticed the nested parenthesis...
"I work with a woman who is 22 but would easily pass for 15...."
Can I have her number? I'll provide the school uniform...
Gregory - thanks for that 'Model in Bondage' link. Most dirty sites are blocked by my netfilter at work. I didn't realize that such filth was available on Wikipedia - which isn't blocked.
I'll... uhhh... be back in a few minutes...
... are a bunch of old fogies, aren't you? I like both Moyles & the evening Radio 1 shows. Though I agree, real-world twats are all idiots. 'Stupid Street' is every street.
Isn't Steve Lamacq on 6Music? And I think I've seen Bruce Dickinson in the schedule too. Not quite to my tastes but not too far off.
Let's get rid of Switch, tweens already influence the media way too much...
