Scientology spokesman confirms Xenu story

@AC -Thetards

Does that mean that anyone that believes in a deity is a theotard (not be be confused with those that believe in Lions, the leotards).

Mine's the one with the copy of every boy's bumper book of puns in the pocket.

Be Broadband doubles down on ADSL to catch cable

Bonding is old technology

I've been doing this with my current ISP for over 4 years. Admittedly I'm too far from the exchange to get a rocket speed aggregated channel but it just works for me and gives me twice the speed of what I had before, in both directions. The other bonus is that should one line fall over the hardware at my end punts to using the remaining line as does the kit at the ISP end when it spots the line going down.

Nothing new here (other than the blistering speed, for those with a good enough connection). Move along now.

Leaked Met letter questions Speaker's version of police raid

He's doomed

The speaker gets the PM's full support, almost as good as a vote of confidence from the board for a football manager. He's doomed.

Microsoft Live Search goes Kumo?

The strength of the trademark is only as good as the owners ability to enforce it and prevent it from wrongfully being used within the registered domain. At the end of the day it comes down to the depth of pockets of the parties concerned. The guy would appear to be a troll, looking for a big pay off from M$.

Also, as soon as the trademark passes into general language use (as a generic verb or noun) then it ceases to be much of a trademark. Google is probably getting close to this, which they are probably not too worried about until we start using some other search engine to do our googling with.

I'm just off to kumo the interweb, for some new pocket protectors.

Mine's the one with the slogan "My other Hoover's a Dyson" on the back.

Common format?

Paper would be far to bulky, even if printed in a small font. What we need is a really really small font. Put the data to microfiche and send that. Need to make sure that the print out is against a randomly repeating interfering background to make OCR as hard as possible (possibly use random fonts, rotations and position shifts in the foreground too).
