The company will still keep them, but not tell anybody that they have them. That stuff could be useful

I'm pretty sure the designers of 'tar' made the command line options so difficult to remember just so that people were forced to type 'man tar'.
Always makes me laugh though, and is usually followed by a quick check on the man page for 'finger', just to check for any updates I'd missed.
The thing had to warm up after three years in space. They always said they were expecting a response at between 5:30 and 6:30 gmt and it arrived at 6:15.
Frankly I'm blown away by this. Sod the bit about landing on a comet - if they can get a computer to wake up in a working state after three years in space then the rest is simple.
I know if I'd written it they would have been greeted by a prompt 'disk sda has not been checked for 900 days, do you wish to check now? y/n' and some poor yt ladwould have had to nip up with a ps2 keyboard.
Whilst watching the Community Shield highlights last night I couldn't for the life of me remember who Wigan beat in the FA Cup, so I turned to Google but now I can't work out which Manchester-based Ministry Of Truth might be resonsible for this ...

I was in Currys the other day looking at ovens, and the missus wandered over to the computers on the way out. She saw the ultrabooks and went "ooooh", and then she looked to the left and saw the iPads and walked over there instead. There are two markets here: shiny things and things for actually doing work. Black and Decker still seem to be doing alright out of selling screwdrivers and hammers.
as an owner of an imported (and rooted (many times)) kindle fire I am extremely happy with it - I can browse t'interwebs, read emails, and play crappy freebie android apps, and that is _all_ I got it for. however i'm not sure that it will ever be a "killer" tablet for mort without bluetooth, camera, mic, etc.
suspect amazon have worked this out and blighty will not see the fire until the next gen model is ready, and sellable under £200.
" It seems that somebody at Mozilla has looked at Google's method of version numbering and decided to copy it in the ridiculous belief that the version numbering must be the reason Chrome is surging ahead"
This would indeed be a ridiculous belief, and as such is probably not the case.
Strange how some people claiming that version numbers are insignificant get so upset about them. And if you're upset about features changing on you, such as add-on management, then disable those updates - it's your choice. Lovely.
Mine's the one with the Opera browser embedded in the collar.
