... So listen patiently, nod at the appropriate times and hold your scathing comments.
Damn it Jim, I am not made of stone!

Please don't make the great unwashed masses aware of this recording. I can see the Twatter/Failbok comments now:
"Hurrder, if it makes sounds there must be air! It was done in a recording studio. dah"
"The planet is flat! It can't be real!"
"The Bible says .... "
I will see myself out...
These days, hacking for the great unwashed, is ANYTHING to do with the computer. Even entering a password is "hacking".
And when did "hacks" become synonymous with "tips"? (These 300 twist tie hacks to live longer, read here for more ...)
ARG! brb. Feeling old and going to shout at clouds.
I don't think any salesman in any industry in the entire history of the world has ever thought that.
I would humbly beg to differ. The sales weasel guide to operation would have "Be creepy" typed in bold at the top of each page.
It's Friday afternoon in my part of the world. That is enough internet for me.
Cats on the other hand understand us perfectly, but just don't give a damn. If they need something, the pre-installed razor blades at the end of the each mobility device function as a perfectly adequate "re-eduction" implement when we fail to understand the basics such as "I am hungry and I can see the bottom of the bowl" or "It is 4pm, time for your slashing".
War-Torn cat wrangler.
The latest round of tit-for-tat involves China blocking ScoMo's WeChat (whatever that is) response because $reasons.
My coat is the one with the bottle of Aussie wine in the pocket.
No, nor were Master Bates or Roger the Cabin Boy part of the crew of the Black Pig either. These were student gags from the 70s and 80's, rehashed by Victor Lewis Smith in the Guardian, for which the Graun had to pay damages to the creator.
Yea. I read about that after posting mine. I think I suffer from the Mandella Effect. I still swear I heard the names when I watched it as a child... I also remember my mothers incredulous look, which she never explained why.
Paris, because she possibly did things people want to forget. ---->
I noticed that, if you do not apply power to the computer, it runs almost 100%* slower than it does with power.
As someone once said "Companies** use statistics like a drunk uses a lamppost. For support rather than illumination"
* With a margin of error of plus or minus 100% if the CPU is in a Terminator.
** Original quote MAY have said politicians, but my memory is old and feeble (386 CPU & no math co-processor).
I had better turn myself in. I went to a movie and illegally recorded it using neurons organised within my biological storage device.
I am still working on perfecting the system... Audio and visual recordings are easy (While I am awake), however, the system is a bit selective in what it records (especially as old age creeps in) and playback is a bit difficult.
While I am being sarcastic, if they do invent a device that allows us to view memories, will it become a crimal offence to view memories of a movie that someone saw?
“Some copyright experts claim those who promote devices or programs that encourage people to infringe copyright are breaking the law.”
How is this infringing on copyright? You are LEGALLY purchasing an item from a LEGITIMATE seller and yet they are claiming it is illegal.
Keeping in balance, $AU25 difference is not a huge mark up, but when you are talking about software that the price changes DRASTICALLY as soon as they find out your IP address (and there is no production costs to deliver the software electronically to you) there is no valid or moral reason to do so (excluding the mandatory GST that Australia imposes)
This investigation is a long time coming. We Aussies have been gouged for far too long on everything from software to electronics to oil. Even locally produced items are over priced.
Might want to cover up a bit better, your protectionist undergarments are showing.
...mine is the one with the Non-Australian IP Address attached.
Not sure if trolling or just stupid?
I am guessing the tune will be different once your dynamically assigned IP was used by someone who downloaded something and you have no idea why they are accusing you of a crime you did NOT do.
Anyway, the story is not about whether pirating is right or wrong, it's about them PROVING you did it and allowing YOU the opportunity to prove you are innocent.
Remember the good old days of "Innocence until proven guilty"?
Yea, me neither.
Are there any readers here who have had experience with DAB in Oz? It appears that it is not all that popular over here in the colonies.
I have never really ventured into it after seeing an electronics company selling a DAB return radio in the returns bin with the reason written on the ticket "Customer returned due to no DAB services in area"
Granted I live outside of a capital city...
Is it just me, or does this really translate as, "We look greener now that we've palmed our carbon footprint problem off to IBM."
It will mean that the datacentres are sent offshore. Thus the Carbon generation is not happening on Australian soil and will not appear in the Carbon ledger.
If we Carbon Tax all companies out of the country then we will have fresh air (because the carbon from other countries will not blow across our beloved land) and no jobs. Bye, bye mining companies (Already starting to happen in my area).
Paris Hilton because she is Carbon neutral. (But Silicon positive?)
It's interesting how MS are foisting a Critical MS Office 2007 patch on my computers... considering I don't have any Office product installed. Unless they are patching my OpenOffice application as a "community service"?
Mine is the one with the Boy Scout for Community services rendered to free applicaitons badge pinned to it.
This does not affect me! After all, I am in Oz and a US judge does not have juristiction over here. Right? Right?
Are they going to "monitor" these IP's to make sure they are not downloading or uploading all those wonderful US movies that they prize so dearly that they must charge millions of dollars for???
Stop the planet, I want to get off.
Paris, cause she would never disclose the IP of the person watching her.
