Comment: TFA's a bit long - can't find ref to passport! (Score 1) 71

TFA is kind of long, so I will concede that on this one occasion, I may have merely skimmed it's content. However, as a gesture of good-will, I shall read the *next* TFA in it's entirety, *twice*.

Anyway, from my brief skimmage, I could find no mention of passports or driving licences. Does anyone know what the summary is referring to?

Interestingly, I had thought the rules were simply that .co.uk had rights over .uk and that was it. However, I too have a .me.uk domain but the .co.uk version has not been registered by anyone. So a whois on my-domain .uk says the .me.uk has registration rights.

Yeah, looks like a lot of registrars are price gouging - according to Nominet, the wholesale price is the same. And definitely don't ever use 123Reg because they'll even charge you to switch. Fuckers!

The only registrar I've found thus-far with the same price for .co.uk and .uk is Mythic Beasts although they're a bit pricey unless you're registering for 10 years.

Gandi.net don't appear to have .uk pricing yet unless I'm missing something!

Okay, so he did do the water-into-wine thing... that was pretty cool. But apart from that, what did Jesus Christ ever do for us?

Fire on the other hand... fire is a totally useful every day thing. No party trick. A proper *thing* that you can properly use. I mean, if JC had actually bothered to tell just one of his disciples how the fuck he that trick, then I might be impressed. As it is... it was just a cheap trick to make himself popular.

That said... it worked, so I'll give him top marks for marketing!

The problem I have with the US date format is simply that it's often ambiguous when used on the internet - it being international and all.

The way people "say" dates is fine, so if someone likes "May 10th" or "10th of May", I'm easy - there's no ambiguity. But writing 05/10/2014 on a website is a bit crap because it is ambiguous. Either go with writing the month name or 3-letter abbrev. or go with ISO format 2014-05-10 - you're still allowed to say it in whatever order you like! So when I read an ISO format date, in my head, I'm not saying "twenty-fourteen oh-five ten" - I still read it as 10th of May.

The other graphs on Netcraft pretty much answer this:

Web server developers: Market share of active sites = looks like MS is on a slight downward trend.

Web server developers: Market share of the top million busiest sites = looks like MS is on a slight downward trend.

And in both of those graphs, Apache is far and away holding the biggest share, *and* Nginx is ahead of MS. But let's face it, we all knew that anyway.

The IQ of the group is the lowest IQ of a member of the group divided by the number of people in the group.
