Not so much PC as more like all "storage" and "The Conversation"
Irrelevant. He broke the law in the UK when he jumped bail. Simples.
No the charges are whether he jumped bail in the UK and sought refuge in a foreign Embassy. Whatever Sweden wants him for is beside the point now - he broke UK laws, so he should be a man and face up to it and not whine and mewl like a pussy.
He's guilty as charged for the offence he committed in the UK, namely jumping bail, as for the others, that is up to the Swedish courts, but he definitely broke the law in the UK.
But this is a reprint of an article from The Conversation, so its very very important!!!!
Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn
Did he patent it? No? Then so what?
No script is a sledgehammer to crack a nut, try Ghostery instead, it targets just the offensive parts of a site without totally destroying it. That said, there are an increasing number of sites that get some aspect broken by AdBlock and Ghostery, including bits of eBay, bits of Amazon and some online shops. However my FB page is totally devoid of all advertising by using AB+, Ghostery and div blockers.
I'm still trackable vie browser fingerprinting however - just tried that EFF test and was astonished at the amount of data my browser leaks, such as add-ons, fonts etc...
Betterprivacy is great however, highly recommend that.
In addition, the levels of fuckwittery on display here are astronomical!
So you'd rather a race to the bottom which ends up with no multinational paying any tax whatsoever?
Where is the editor for this article? Good lord how far have standards fallen at El Reg?
So how do people pay for the energy they use to operate all this miraculous stuff?
Don't forget that entire industries have been created around people with stupid qualifications telling other people with stupid qualifications something they already knew, but because they are payins stupid amounts of money instead of using their own intelligence it sounds more authoritative, but is actually entirely unproductive in the great scheme of things.
I believe its called consultancy...
Its obvious - this was just Kimball Kinnison inerting two superheavy blue giant stars whose intrinsic velocities were faster than the speed of light in opposing directions that he'd brought over from another dimension...
This should finally end the Eddorian menace once and for all!
You missed out the "SH" prefix in your description of the type of jobs...
This isn't just Cameron - read the original article, it says
> Among the powers that the Home Office has awarded itself over the last 15 years are
So it was started by Blair and Brown and the Tory twunts just kept it going. Cameron was elected because there was no viable Labour alternative, not because of some secret conspiracy - well unless making Labour unelectable after a decade of incompetence in power was the conspiracy?
and what do you think that will achieve? That would be just another side-show to distract from the nitty gritty of the problem... THEY ARE SPYING ON US AND WE HAVE NO POWER TO MAKE THEM STOP!!!
Where the hell do you live? You need to move - thats not normal in the UK.
However, do you ever feel like you are likely to be shot at a moments notice by any random nutter while living in the UK? Do you fear for you life anytime you have an interaction with the UK Police?
Wow, angry much?
No thats not the case, it turned out that the humour in the French Magic Roundabout wouldn't translate. For example Dougal the dog spoke French with a Scottish accent which the French find incredibly funny but everyone else goes "meh". It wasn't a case that they couldn't afford to translate, its the translation wasn't funny, so Eric made the stories up and was utterly brilliant at it.
Because this one is expected to do a different job than the ones already there?
Who says artists suffer for their work? Don't see Damien Hirst and his ilk suffering much, its the rest of us who have to suffer their crap!
He could start by reviewing his own salary and that of the overpaid consultants that he's hired to come up with ideas to scare the community into supporting his inefficient policies!
From what I've seen and experienced with agile, its most common use is as a blame management tool rather than a productivity enhancement.
For example, Government projects always insist on agile, yet are usually composed of 3-4-5 outsourced suppliers. Agile CANNOT work with a team composed out outsourced suppliers, each with their own SLA requirements!!!
> The big issue as always is poor design and implementation
and poor specification at the outset... or changing specifications...
column 1 was a page/line feed character
columns 2-5 were for label numbers
column 6 was continuation character
columns 7-72 were for code
columns 73-80 were for card number or some other purpose I can't remember just yet...
We had to whistle our own connection tones down the line and then shout ones and zeros...
What if it had been a UFO and he shot at it with a plasma rifle?
What kid of stupid comment was that? Are you one of those people who take every comment and push the context way beyond anything reasonable?
Would be nice if VM would lay new cable to properties that have been built since the late 90s when most of the cable they use was installed. My house is 10 metres from the VM cable but they won't lay that last little bit but STILL bombard me with awful marketing shit through the letterbox!
The adblocker s/w itself doesn't define what is and isn't intrusive, its the people who develop the rules and those rules include "allow the ones who pay us to allow them to be seen".
Most of the holders of that debt are us - people who have pensions!
Thats the sound of you missing the point of the original post...
or... nice pig head... <zip>
But new version of the comics are being published every month, and every few years the characters get a revamp in their looks, thus the copyright is constantly renewed.
Drawing a picture is an act of creativity in just the same way that building one is. You still need permission to turn a picture into an object if you don't own the copyright of the design.
> Not sure of the law in the US but I'm pretty sure that if you don't defend a copyright then you may lose that right.
If you are not sure of the law don't try quoting it - you are confusing copyright and trademarks. If you don't defend your trademark you loose the rights to it. Copyright is NOT the same.
The worst "Doctor" wasn't in front of the camera at all, he was the Producer from 1979 until 1989 - John Nathan-Turner. He had absolutely no clue how to produce the program and destroyed it with stupid casting, abysmal costumes, laughable "special" effects and terrible scripts.
The only good things to come out of those years were Peri (almost) in a bikini and Nyssa in tight trousers!
What I find amusing here is that from exactly the same report the BBC come up with a diametrically opposed conclusion:
"Next two years hottest, says Met Office"
I think this says more about the relative biases of the reporters rather than the factual content of the report :)
Don't forget "The batsmans Holding, the bowlers Willy"
I prefer the songs sung by the Duckworth-Lewis Method... (especially Jiggery Pokery!)
This has been analysed to death - the cost of means testing this and other universal pensioner benefits would cost MORE than would be saved.
> India-Pakistan-etc is a UK blunder as well. Originally all over bloody tea.
Excuse me? How do you come to that conclusion? The partition happened AFTER the Brits left...
So what happens when you try to write about Scunthorpe or the Barnsley town of Penistone, the Berkshire village of Cockpole Green or the village of Hassocks in Sussex?
There is even a fan page for "The girl in the Safety Dance video" on facebook...
America, land of the Free*

Because the coup has already happened!!!
If you wish to charge your electric car while driving what you need is a slot in the road with metal strips either side. Then on the underside of your car you have a tab that fits in the slot with the pick ups on either side...
You then need to be REALLY careful at the cross-overs...
We need some Digital Relief from all these Diabolical Digital Distractions!
And? Why is that any sort of excuse for stealing other people's work?
