Well in that case, you could have asked for a postal or proxy vote.
One report claimed that many of the ones not able to vote, were students without poll cards. There's always a risk in waiting until the l;ast minute.
We're all going to die.
How can we fly to the South Pacific when the LHC is belching out all that volcanic ash?
Probably all for show.
With everything going on as before behind the scenes. What the government doesn't know (officially) doesn't count.
"if the equivalent @gmail.com address is available."?
I thought that only one name was allowed regardless of whether it was gmail or googlemail. Email sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org is received at email@example.com

Re Escape Pods
Each Shuttle weighs 74 tons, a lot of weight for little useful storage space. They can only stay up for about 14 days until the fuel cells etc run out, so not useful for escape pods. And you'd have the additional problem of getting the crew back to Earth.
And I think that SpaceX will need the Shuttle docking port.
Re "It certainly seems a little harsh"
"It certainly seems a little harsh to say that President Obama is "backing away" from space exploration"
Why? It took him over a year to announce that resupplying the ISS would be done by SpaceX, etc, and that Constellation would be axed. Even though the first was the purpose of COTS, and Constellation was all about leaving Earth orbit. If he really had something this ambitious, why not announce it weeks ago? It smacks of something hastily cobbled together after the initial outcry.
"Have none of you commentards ever heard of Google?"
Of course. But we prefer humorous postings. It just sounds funny.
I had the same thought. I imagined them entering a cobwebby office, booting up the IBM 5150 PCs, and starting work.
There's more about it here.
I don't care about the colour. As long as it has high brick walls, topped with barbed wire and is escape-proof.
@ i sorta agree
The money is put to use on the ground. Providing jobs, developing and building new technology.
And it's only a very small amount compared to the money devoted to killing civilians in two recent pointless wars.
There isn't a vault stuffed with cash on the ISS.
The Internet is actually a very safe place.
Internet criminals, paedos, scammers, etc, are miles,even thousands of miles away from potential victims. As long as you know and understand the risks, you aren't at risk. It isn't like burglary or mugging, where criminals come after you physically.
Education is the only real defence.
Not a new RIAA tactic, is it?
@The real results of drugs
Yes we are losing the war- because it's unwinnable. We've been fighting it for about 100 years, and we'll still be fighting it a century from now unless we call a halt.
In the 1930s you'd have had speakeasies, and the crime that went with it. Now you have crack-houses.
Cheque written on a cow,
"More Misleading Cases in the Common Law" by A P Herbert (1930).
No machine readable characters presumably, and a giant wooden cheque won't go through the cheque handling machinery.
Even if BT banked it, and it goes through the clearing system, how much will his bank charge for processing it?
Damn yuu El Reg!
This article has cost me £33.

From firstname.lastname@example.org apparently (the things I do for El Reg.). Not that I'm going to trust my card details to email..
