The company are finally shelling out for a new one for yours truely
I can't live with this piece of crap any longer
(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 9:38, archived)
i'm getting a new pc and an ipad!
finally this job is starting to get less crappy
(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 9:41, archived)
My PC was brand new when I started here, problem is it's got 8gb RAM with only a 32-bit OS
And 4gb RAM isn't enough.
The guys I work with and myself know more about computers than the guys in Technical Systems.

hey mono, do you ever have a good day at work? no offence but you dont half whine about it all the time

(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 9:50, archived)
Yes, I do.
Doesn't stop people being fucking retards though.

do you think you could mention it more when you do? it would be great to hear some better news for a change

(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 9:55, archived)
I'm having a good day today.
But the conversation was about computers which made me think about how mine could be slightly better, so I can do my job properly.

I've got some good news
I lured a female back to my lair at the weekend.

good work, is she securely held?

OI! Don't you know there's a hosepipe ban on The LOVELY UToL.
Well, that's my excuse for not cleaning out The Lurker Cage anyway.

Tentacle rape you say?
NSFW comic

it was consensual and don't listen to anyone that says differently.

iPad?? Nice one!
I'm getting a Dell E6420...I'm not too up on these things but it looks pretty cool. Certainly better than this one anyway. But then a Major Morgan would be an upgrade.
(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 9:47, archived)
yep, the new one too
i'm not sure what PCs we'll be getting
but the one i'm using currently is over 5 years old
(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 10:01, archived)
Yeah, mine's about 4 years old now
It's just so slow. It'll be good to be able to start work less than half and hour after switching the machine on.

I'll be honest I'd like an ipad if only to play Draw Something on

Yeah, my fingers are too fat to draw properly on the iphone.

sure, if you don't like all those lovely apps they have on phones nowadays

(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 10:26, archived)
hah, yeah, although it does have some gpod obes.
And eventually it'll catch up with android what with development being easier and Win8 pushing it through.

I do like their square homescreen setup, it's very pretty
we had a play with the Lumia and Massive Lumia at the Nokia exhibit at SXSW. The cameras on them are good.

How was SXSW?

(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 10:46, archived)
pretty good actually, I didn't have a badge for the talks unfortunately
but there were lots of free parties to go to, free food, drinks, t-shirts etc. And did lots of networking. I don't know how Austin will cope each year as it gets bigger and bigger, mind.

I found out that Cadence Weapon and Saul Williams were playing the same show about a week before and got really disappointed that I wasn't going.
Also the cast of Parks & Recreation were there.

also mark henry was there

(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 11:22, archived)
yeah, me too, and the main apps i use are built in anyway.
The camera on the Lumia 800 doesn't compare to HTC though.
(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 11:33, archived)
Thing is though, the phone is great.
And the OS is brilliant.
It's just the fact that noone makes apps for it that's bloody annoying!
:'(
(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 10:26, archived)
because only 5 people worldwide have Windows phones
if I was an app developer I'd make apps for iphones. Because app developers need to eat and pay their rent and all that.

there still is a big userbase, and with the likes of PhoneGap, it makes it no extra work.
In MarketPlace, you can be No.1 where as on iOS, there are 100s who have done the same.

true
is it mostly paid apps or free apps on windows phones?
(, Mon 19 Mar 2012, 10:46, archived)
i have yet to find one app useful

my longest streak is with two hats

What gave that away? Was it when he started writing the answers down in different colours?

I bet we can hit 100 in the next day or two.

We can do. I keep getting comic book character options in games against people who don't have a clue about comic books. I've had Aquaman and Riddler in a game with my mum and she didn't get either of them.

did you draw your own?
was it actual size?

If anything it's bigger than my own
It's more a romantic ideal, rather than an accurate representation

Her and Ms.Lith have been communicating via Draw Something. That must be the most ham-fisted way of being sociable I've ever seen.

It's soo much better on an iPad, I don't think i'd bother on a smaller screen.
