Aussie laser-pointer dazzle attacks on airliners: Bad


So if they ban lasers.

Then I guess everyone will move to super searchlights that plug into car lighters, the ones with the LEDs or something.

If they outlaw lasers, only outlaws will have lasers.

Sorry, had to say it.

Oh come on, surely you know the way to find out rather than just *asking* if he's a witch!

Yes, you have a possibly unhealthy fixation on the shuttle having a well developed lower end?

Hopefully if you ever become disabled Chris, your words won't get Googled to haunt you.

So, what's the first rule of Reg Club?


Where's the ...

... coat rack? Someone swiped it as soon as they saw me.

Oh well.

Thou shalt remember any Ass mentioned in TheReg is Ass with a period.

Thou shalt remember the immortal phrase "Pay no attention to that rootkit on your CD's".

Thou shalt also remember to click your heel three times, reciting "There's no OS but *IX, there's no OS but *IX".

Thou shalt always remember that the IT angle is you're using a computer to read it (pat pending).

Thous shalt always take every opportunity to remind people that "fanboys" is inaccurate, and even us girls agree Micro$queak sucks.

Addendum to previous rule: No, thou can't demand pictoral proof of the claimed female status of a poster pointing out that "fanboys" is inaccurate because girls too agree Micro$queak sucks just because you've never seen a female.

Thou shalt remember that the truth is always less interesting than the facts.

Maybe ...

... they found the ancestors of Pat Robertson and the Kansas Board of Education? *They* have evolutionarily small brains, are of little stature, and generally cause disagreements when common sense seems to say otherwise too.

P.T. Barnum ...

The sad part? They're both right.

James Bond ditches the Aston Martin




"converts the solar death ray to a new electricity station using just a hair grip whilst hanging almost an inch off the ground without a safety harness"

Excuse me, but as a card carrying member of the "swoons and get all mushy at the idea of Richard Dean Anderson club", please stop trying to swipe MacGyver stuff for Bond.

*picks herself up after thinking of RDA and continues*

@Andy Gibson:

"Bond never been into space? What about "Moonraker"?"

That was Roger Moore, he doesn't count on account of the fact he's a total prat with all the acting ability of your average 3 week old ham sandwich.

No-one gives Bond a decent car, they know he's only going to wreck it. I think they're all Ford Escorts with creative bodywork attached.

A little like Walter Koenig ... "The Corps is Mother, The Corps is Father ..."

I guess it's my turn ...

Much as I hate to interject into this wonderful discussion, I noticed one glaring omission from the conversation, and felt it my solemn duty as one of those "old fogies" some commentators are gleefully waiting to die off (at 39!!!) to ask

Where's the IT angle?

IT angle?

Oh come on, it's full of IT angles! It's all about code, reassembling it, and a parable on the necessity of proper document retention!
