Offhand, I can think of two novels. One tells how to make a very unstable explosive, and the other mentions three common chemicals that combust violently when mixed. Are they to be banned too?

Her bank * has already reimbursed her. Reasonable, as I don't see why its automatic fraud detection didn't flag the transactions as iffy.

"used a smuggled mobile to post a website mirroring that of the Southwark Crown Court."
"using legitimate personal details (including registering the Website in the name of Detective Inspector Chris Soole) in a bid to make the scam look legitimate."
Why would a fake Court website registered in the name of a DI look legitimate? And who would check the registration anyway?
I just knew that it was a Nathan Rao story before following that link. I amaze myself sometimes.

You're a UKIPPER or a Daily Mail reader, aren't you?
Re: Some people really should get out more.
The Inland Revenue had a computer centre there fifty years ago, and I was seconded there for most of 1966. It sounds as if it's gone downhill since.

Re: Being harder is a GOOD reason to do it on water
Plenty of room at the Kennedy Space Center, and it's near the sea. By the time it's too late for Range Safety to blow it up over the ocean, it must surely be clear where it would hit the ground.
I don't see why landing a first stage should be any more dangerous than the actual launch.

Come on Musk!
Use the Falcon 'Heavy's test flight next year to send an unmanned Dragon round the Moon and back, three years before the second Orion flight.
Re: Well, obviously. Thanks for the link,
There's a window in 2021 for a free return trip to Mars and back. And with a bonus Venus flyby. Add a Bigelow inflatable and there are no showstoppers.
If NASA doesn't try it, Musk surely will.
Another hold. Ground wind violation this time.

Re: The NAO might be waiting a fair old while...
I doubt it as there's a general election next May. The new Lab/SNP coalition will soon put it out of its misery.
"We apologise to Mrs Raybould for any distress caused"
I do so hate that usage of "any", when it's self-evident that distress or inconvenience has been caused. The word to use is "the"
That wouldn't have helped. Bank accounts are frozen after death until the estate is wound up, apart from paying the funeral expenses. It's quite clear here that the direct debits had ceased and Vodafone sent in the bailiffs.

I've also seen it described as the size of a dishwasher. It's rather appropriate to use white-goods examples when visiting a Comet.
Don't give up. One more giant bounce for robotkind.
"lighter than a feather"
What's that in NanoJubs?
I do hate that phrase. The NHS Blood Transfusion Service used it last week when their on-line booking service went tits-up for four or five days.

"SpaceX in spite of the latest setback is looking pretty good"
What latest setback? Are you thinking of Orbital Sciences?
"HTC’s most recent product was a camera without a viewfinder"
Isn't it the Nexus 9?
I stand corrected as regards to the SpaceX issue. But I said first stage engine failure, not problem. I should probably have said catastrophic.
Second stage engine problems aren't that rare. One left two GPS satellites in the wrong orbit earlier this year. SpaceX had one on one resupply mission. It reached the ISS as planned but left a satellite (secondary mission) in the wrong place. I don't see why first stage failures should be rarer, but they do seem to be.
Obviously they can be more spectacular and cause damage to the launch site, but that doesn't mean that the cause of the problem is more serious.
1941 GMT (3:41 p.m. EDT)
Splashdown confirmed! The Dragon spacecraft has returned to Earth with nearly 3,300 pounds of space station cargo, ending its fourth operational flight to the complex.
SpaceX says the splashdown occurred at approximately 3:38 p.m. EDT (1938 GMT)

Astronaut Reid Wiseman has backed the robotic arm away to a distance of about 4 feet. The first of three rocket burns to guide Dragon away from the space station is coming up soon.

"From observational experience, it depends on how many excess pieces you have left afterwards."
Or how many of the pingfuckits that flew about your garage you were unable to find.
Re: what sort of 3d printer?
"Funded in a public-private partnership by Made in Space and NASA, the 3D printer is the first device of its kind to ever launch into space. Engineers on the ground will uplink commands to the printer, giving it a 3D model of an object to build out of a stock of plastic carried inside."
So possibly an Eiffel Tower. I read somewhere that a more sophisticated 3d printer will follow in the near future.

Re: I suspect
It won't be needed much longer. Launch vehicles will trigger their own self destruct if the on-board GPS says it isn't where it should be. At least one launch has tested the concept successfully, while still relying on the current system.

Is £10 a year really beyond the means of the most impoverished gun owner? How much does ammo cost?
Why not ask SpaceX?
How many could next year's Falcon Heavy launch in one go?
"As is our practice, the company will be reviewing the flight record details to learn more about the performance of the vehicle prior to our next said," I wonder why nobody else has thought of doing that?
