Tory councillor arrested over 'stoning to death' tweet

Good Grief

I'm beginning to think george Orwell was quite accurate with his predictions, he just buggered up on the date.

Thanks chaps, just the article to brighten an otherwise crappy day.

Then people wonder why I'm an atheist.

There is an element of who cares and if that is all he has to worry about then he needs to get a life.....from somewhere......from anywhere really.

Secret forum reveals Oz firewall backroom dealing

Bernie Cavanagh


It's the same with all governments, they are scared shitless of free speech and a population that is capable of independent free thought not to mention they can cover up all sorts of nasty legislation and underhand dealings with a good dose of censorship.

I see the religious right are in there battling in favour of the firewall as well. Probably hoping it can quell some of the more lurid revelations of institutionalised kiddy fiddling stories that seem to be appearing with ever more frequency.

I'm pleased the Oz government seem to be as capable as most politicians, piss up in a brewery comes to mind.

Pardon my cynicism.

Jobsian drones shackle gamer with 'lifetime' iPad ban

Apple are getting more weird by the day. I don't understand why anyone would want to deal with them.

Their OS is full of security holes and getting hideously bloated.

Their hardware is generally a couple of generations behind.

Their phone has horrible contracts no doubt signed in blood.

Power supplies on mobile hardware burn out with unfailing regularity.

Flat panels turn yellow for no apparent reason.

They have a habit of going out of their way to piss suppliers, developers and customers off and as a company the plot has been severely lost.

For all these benefits you pay a 40% premium over other non fruit themed hardware. I can only assume that their are a good many masochists out there that enjoy all this pain.

Dare I say it but even Microsoft are looking positively benign set against this type of corporate bollocks.

I feel dirty

Why is it whenever Mandy is involved or I read about him in the news I feel like I need a shower.

The grubby little oik finally managed to get censorship on a national scale, I wonder how much David Geffen gave him in backhanders and other less savoury presents. Eeewww.

NASA flying car engineer shoots down Reg coverage

Dr. Moore has his claws out.

Ewwwww, someone just had a hissy fit.

I don't suppose Dr Moore thought about the other impracticality of his invention. If you had to fly the damned contraption for more that half an hour allowing that batteries may well triple their lifespan at some point, can you imagine the neck ache from having to look up from a prone position to see where the hell you're going.

I can feel the need for an osteopath already.

Head Hiding

The BBC has it's head up it's collective arse and seems determined to get it up there further, so far in fact it can't see the real world for all the crap.

They're not making money, audiences are dropping, program quality is dreadful and the presenters are at best lousy and at worst positively patronising and yet, like the recording industry they seem quite determined to piss off the diehard supporters they have left.

Good way to put things on the right track......if you want the organisation to win the Darwin Award.

US government rescinds 'leave internet alone' policy

Running Scared

If truth be know it's all about the fact that governments are shit scared of free speech and a population that can think independently and openly question their lies and cover ups.

Steve Wozniak, your time is up

Sombody fell out of the wrong side of bed.

OK Mr. Rik Myslewski, what's with all the completely pointless vitriol. A whole article just to have a go at Mr. Wozniak. Did he slight you in some distant conversation or is it because he's never heard of you.

I think you may have been carried away with the latest famous for fifteen minutes, let's get some humour by humiliating someone culture. Not good and not funny, take a chill pill and relax before you pop an artery in a vain attempt for some cheap fame and humour.

Good Grief

Trust Microsoft to come up with what looks like a reasonable serviceable product and then carry out a true marketing f**k up.

I'm actually downloading it now no problem. OK, I know I'm probably being a masochist but even the Vole has to have the benefit of the doubt occasionally.

Gov to Manchester: No new trams without road pricing

Bernie Cavanagh


This whole congestion myth is a pile of crap. The only reason that there is major congestion in Manchester is because some smart ass in the council saw an opportunity after the IRA bomb and decided it was a good idea to completely fuck up the road system therebye as in London with the traffic lights fiasco, create "congestion" when it suited them.

Just watch the price of fairs go through the roof after the first six months.

UK is not a surveillance society, MPs claim

Bernie Cavanagh

I've had enough of these pillocks

I'm off, house on the market and leaving the sinking ship. Might come back when these silly buggers remove their collective heads from up their collective anal passages.

I'm still staggered by just how much more intrusive the government has become since Blair took over and I'm more scared of this shower than any possible terrorist threat quite frankly.

If the former New York governor can afford $1000 an hour hookers do they really need to gather more taxes or just reduce the salaries of city employees.

MS update ate my CPU cycles

Same probelm early last year

I had the same problem last year caused by Windows Live Messenger installs.

Two clients, identical problem and the only way I found to get around that one was to re-install. Interesting point though, in these particular cases on machines with more than one account, only the account that installed the Live Messenger was affected.
