Emmerdale shoves jam rags in innocent kiddies' faces



I don't get it.

Excuse me, I'm just a dumb german, but I don't see anything offensive in the term jam rag. Sounds like some kind of cleaning equipment for marmalade or something.

Anyhow, on second thought I really, really, really don't care.

England beat Germany - what are the odds?


For the love of god...

please don't mention the score! At least not to a british person...

No Jacket, thank you...

BBC vs ISPs: Bandwidth row escalates as Tiscali wades in


Canada anyone?

Maybe the ISP's should go on strike and demand more of that "Internet money".

I'm pretty sure it says that the life of Solomon Grundy is a sad reflection of mortality, not morality.

There you go...

Apple applies to light up laptop touchpads, iPod clickwheels

Thumb Down

Really bad idea

Then again, I'm one of those types who are soooo tired of all kinds of devices blinking and lighting up for no reason at all.

(You know, like that blue blinking ear-gear for mobiles...)

Paris Hilton exits missionary position to save Universe


Headline's fine as it is

No, really. The most important bits are there: The words Paris and Hilton. Everybody will remember the rest of the sentence as XXXXX anyway...

Virtualization and the Art of Patience with HP, IBM, Sun and Dell



"HP, Sun, Dell and IBM fail AND aid their customers."

What a bunch of losers, aiding their customers...

/pedantic mode on

I'm not a native english speaker, but I'm pretty sure this should read:

"... fail TO aid their customers." (?)

/pedantic mode off

Boffins unveil sharpest ever stellar snaps



AFAIK adaptive optics involve an artificial guidestar (laserbeam), the fuziness of which is in direct relation to the 'adaptive' part of adaptive optics, which in turn involves a sectioned mirror where single sections can be moved to "adapt".

(I'm wondering who'd be so sad to "enhance" his webcam in that way...)

On a completely unrelated note, I lost count of how many times I read about some boffins pleading to not use the word boffin here on ElReg. Dear boffins, please stop that, it is not funny anymore and it won't happen...

Btw, light years are soooo yesteryear. Use sheep years instead...

London man coughs to 172mph Porsche jaunt


I don't get it...

I spent at least several days of my life at +150 mph until now, but I'm a german, so that's OK then.

But did you ever think about how driving at high speed might perhaps prolong your life? I mean, with general relativity and all that stuff around...

Now, where's that coat of mine...

Novell owns Unix copyrights after all




US rules vote swapping legal



I'm terribly sorry, but I read that as

"...The modern version of tactical vomiting,..."

My..., how descriptive, I thought.

Then I read it again but somehow it wasn't so funny this time...

How to recover your 'unrecoverable' laptop


bad scenario

I don't get it, has the presumed laptop in this story no copy/paste function? Or is that irrelevant to the plot?

Why would I want to use a "Backup-Solution" to backup a few slides and some spreadsheets when the copy/paste function works actually very well with USB-Sticks?

Analyst rubs crystal ball and sees iPhone 2.0 based on Nano



It may seem a bit strange, but I'm wondering if Paris Hilton has an iPhone. I surely would like to read about that...

Coat anyone?
