    I just saw an advert on TV extolling the virtues of robots in the home, from Roombas to weird things with limbs that seem to prepare food. At first I thought it was a viral for some upcoming film, but no, it's an actual proper advert encouraging people to buy robots.

    I'm the US and I haven't quite realised it yet.
    Sounds like it. :-)

    The Chef paedophile episode of South Park is harsh.

    Edit: oh, and Supersonic is ace.

    Haven't actually watched any TV programmes apart from the F1 for months.

    The TV has been serving its proper use as a screen for gaming, a part-time PC monitor and something to use to watch films.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Stuff like PPI. Just thought it was strange, not something that happened before, can't remember using my number for anything silly.
    Android phone? Might be an app/wallpaper you've recently installed.
    Hmm, anyway to check this? I get shit loads, didn't really think about this.

    Yeah me too :-(

    Thing is I've installed fuck all on this phone other than the official Xbox, Kindle and Steam apps and some game that I can't remember the name of because I deleted it... Some cross between an RPG and Tetris (it was the EG app of the day on the day I got my phone).

    I totally called it.

    Sextris?

    I get these txts too and I'm registered on the telephone preference system thing. I never send them STOP messages though because I'm worried it is a scam & I'll get hit with a premium rate.

    I sent them a STOP message once. That was because it was an insurance claim one wondering if I wanted to claim for a car accident I'd had. I didn't feel like claiming compensation seeing as I'd hit a stone wall, which hadn't jumped into the path of the car, which was travelling so slowly, I had time to warn the occupants of the impending impact.

    I thought the insurers had passed on my details to a legitimate yet shitty claims management company. It seems it was a shitty scammy claims type "company" who now think my name is Nicola.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    I've got something called Lookout Ad Network detector installed on mine, which managed to locate the offending app (live wallpaper) when I got spam in my notification bar. Free, simple and seems to do the job without any fuss.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lookout.addetector&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5sb29rb3V0LmFkZGV0ZWN0b3IiXQ..

    Edit: Only seems to work for ads though I think, not sure about text messages. But there are other apps around that can sort that out.

    Cheers. Got AirPush Detector which sorts out random ads in the notification bar but will do some digging on texts. I just blacklist them at the mo.

    I'm really glad I have the day off as I've got major squits today. Just thought I'd share.

    I got a load of gumf from a free piano app I installed. Kept putting spam shortcuts onto the homepage. Nothing like this would have happened on an iPhone, no siree.

    'Hurt me!' she begged, raising her skirt as she bent over the workbench. 'Very well,' I replied, 'You've got fat ankles and no dress sense.'

    email I've just received from ebay.

    "Last month, we announced that we were refreshing the eBay logo to reflect who we are today. Our updated logo symbolises the new eBay and our commitment to connect people to the things they need and love anytime, anywhere."


    Amazingly, they live up to that claim.

    @localnotail Wasn't that the one after he quit because of Scientology, so they created it using cuts of all his previous lines as a goodbye to chef?

    Yeah, that's the one. They make him into a paedophile, because he's joined a new group who like to travel the world having sex with kids.

    It's not really that harsh, tbh.

    That is a biliant episode and actually very touching send off to the guy. Something only south park could pull off.

    So...

    Basically, I have a brochure for a kitchen company. I noticed there's a web address on the back of all their fancy new brochures, however a quick check shows the domain hasn't been registered yet. The inner-asshole in me wants to take it. Opinions?

    Update: Just looked it up, .ie domain name registration is very strict. So not worth the effort.

    Why would you print brochures with a unregistered site?!

    You'd have probably been made to hand it over anyway, if taken to court. The days of registering a domain to screw a company are long gone.

    Really? Is there laws that you are aware of in most countries to block this?
