123-reg are pure evil
Used them on and off over the years - you're always getting these surprise sort of bills.

Again. Absolutely. It just doesn't seem necessary. I'm not sure - I'm a bit torn like the first time the Daleks could climb stairs. It really isn't some sexist woman hating thing, sure it's just fantasy - one day I'm hoping that the Dr will transform and he'll be Jackie Chan and he'll be kicking the be-jesus out of those cybermen and they'll be like "Crap! It's Dr. Jackie Who!". I'd pay my licence fee for that.
I've nothing against Jodie - a fine actress but Dr. Who is a guy. What next? Recasting Jane Austin's characters as transgender? If you want a time lady then being back Romana (who incidentally was briefly black - no issues there, in fact Idris Alba for James Bond) - this though feels forced. *

Well yeah, OK. But having worked on FreeBSD (and yes I know we're not comparing like with like) there are open source projects with far greater potential and merit. Linus is not the begin and end of the open source movement. He is often rude, unprofessional and rapidly becoming surplus to requirements.
I don't think I want to see the guy swan off to Ecuador after all the crap he's pulled. Don't get me wrong, I think the world needs organisations like Wikileaks it just doesn't need Assange. I also think that Ecuador overestimate their own influence and misunderstand how our legal system works. The moment he steps out of the embassy he will be arrested - what happens next is a huge mess of what Sweden decide to do (they can still request extradition), what the yanks want to do (as someone said earlier it will just take one ambitious DA to throw a spanner in the works. Questions as to how long he would survive in Quito I will leave to others to speculate on. One final point is that he has not behaved like an innocent man and that means trial by media and on that I'd say the verdict is pretty much guilty.
Nothing annoys me more than the US military whining that they got owned in some stupid embarrassing way by some kid in his bedroom and then making up huge sums of money and acting like they're in a shooting war with the Russians. I guess it's an easier way to get budget than to you know ASK for some security in the first place.
Yeah - life's not fair and all that but this was a spiteful show of making an example of someone. How successful it's been is questionable. The guy got caught through poor tradecraft rather technical Tor issues and whatnot and people have learned from his mistakes. Life without parole? That the USA
"Terrorists are generally locals who have become very disaffected with the way their lives are not panning out as they would like. The cause they espouse is almost irrelevant. They will be open to any political ideology that appears to promise to give them meaning and control."
Who just happen to be Muslim? Plenty of unhappy people in Britain but they don't go around killing kids.
