London bike hire scheme suffers pre-launch wobbles

Niall 1

Works Ok in Dublin

They've had this for a while now in Dublin and it appears to be going quite well. I was convinced all the bikes would end up either in the river or still attached to the docking bay with all their tyres slashed. Strangely this hasn't happened. The bikes are also constantly moved to different stations depending on need so stations are never usually full or empty. You do however see people who haven't been on a bike since the Chopper was in vogue wobbling through rush hour traffic. Try that in London and I'm sure you won't get too far.

Niall 1


It's not just El Reg, I also noticed that my flag* has orange on it as well and on Paddies day too! For Shame.

US school comes out fighting over webcam spy claim

Niall 1

Slight Contradiction

So they have an image of the student taken using the spy kit, which is only used when laptops are stolen or lost. So was the laptop reported stolen or lost? I assume not, so this make their statement complete and utter tosh.

Airport scanners go live today, kids included

Niall 1

Seen it wished I hadn't

That whole "if it saves one life" argument, is going to be the cause of a lot of people losing their lives if I hear it one more time.

Niall 1

Too early to gauge passenger response...

because they're all complaining. Once people are resigned to it then they will start to gauge responses.

"Passengers must not be selected on the basis of personal characteristics"

(i.e. on a basis that may constitute discrimination such as gender, age, race or ethnic origin)."*cut*


detailed protocols which are not published because,

we are told, they contain security sensitive information which includes selection criteria on those chosen for scanning*paste*

(i.e. on a basis that may constitute discrimination such as gender, age, race or ethnic origin)."

El Reg launches 'Comment of the Week'

Niall 1

Judged by the Moderatrix...

Would this be the same Moderatrix who is the epitome of style and sophistication, whose beauty and grace is matched only by her incisive wit, enviable intelligence and saintly patience, the ray of sunlight that occasionally shines through the dull and dreary comments section? I say this because it's true and needs to be said and not because I want put some camel balls in my mouth.
