welcome our new climate stabilising phytoplankton overlords.

"I hate the term 'Radio' when it comes to internet... casting, "
I know it's not strictly accurate, but what's the alternative? When standalone Internet radios do look like radios.
Whoever did the catalogue pictures for the Bush Tr2015 even felt the need to photoshop a telescopic aerial which it neither has nor needed.
That makes perfect sense. Blears received an email from an official Civil Service address, and quite understandably complained to the department concerned.
I feel that a Civil Servant that stupid deserves to be fired. She wouldn't probably have received an automatic email acknowledgement.
" And then if a kid really, really wants a knife, there is always the cutlery draw"
First they came for the cutlery draw.
And I did not speak out
Because I didn't want to win a knife
Then they came for the National Lottery
@ All well and good
The satellite was built in America. ESA is now a major player in the heavy launch business which is why the owners used it.
Thirty one successful launches in a row. Three so far this year and four more planned.
It's about time Europe got into the manned space business. We've got an ideal launch vehicle and the ATV which has delivered supplies to the ISS.
I've currently got three devices that charge by Mini-USB (Phone, ebook reader, and MP3 player).
What extra benefit does Micro-USB offer?
Charging is only slower if charging from a computer. If it's not enough, buy a charger with a USB socket. And the phone came with a lead that fits a car cigarette lighter socket.
Actually because of the DNA retention policy, there are four.
Guilty, innocent of a minor offence, innocent of a major offence, and suspected.
@ Seriously, a Dremmel Tool and a vacuum hose
Thy can manage with two Shuttles, but the time it takes to prepare a Shuttle for its next launch means that finishing the ISS will extend well into 2011.
http://www.spaceflightnow.com/shuttle/sts127/090624update/ sounds less pessimistic though. My money's om Atlantis launching in November though.
If the EU had existed then, it might have insisted on dinosaur passports, and agreements not to eat your own dinos. . With photos and detailed info that could settled the arguments.

Er. What's the adjective that means sperm-like?
@ Lola resolution
That's the altimeter The camera has a resolution of 12 inches, so all the Apollo hardware will be easily visible. And I read somewhere they are hoping to locate a couple of probes that crashed (unintentionally).
Bandwidth available means that images of about 10% of the surface can be sent back in a year.
"Ryanair has told those traveling on Thursday the 25th that "in order to avoid any inconvenience," they must do their web check-in before 6pm Wednesday the 24th."
If you've any sense, you'd do that anyway. Leave things until the last minute, and you're asking for trouble.
What if your PC, router, or printer, goes tits-up, and you've no time to get it sorted?
@ Agent Smith had it right
On the ground, robots are a poor substitute for manned visits.
Opportunity has travelled just over 10 miles. After over six years! Providing results but exploring a very small area.
All three manned lunar rovers travelled more than that in only a few hours.
@ @frank ly
"Then again the Shuttle never was a serious space vehicle."
What? It's flown more than any other manned vehicle. It can carry a crew of seven (more than its planned successor). With a massive cargo bay, robot arm, and the capability of allowing the crew to do repairs in Earth orbit.
Well, someone has to.
I for one welcome our new indestructible prehistoric overlord.
@ Just as well..
.The rescue launch would have been on the other launchpad, so the problem may not have occurred.
And I expect they'd have launched anyway. I was told that they would have launched even though the weather at the time would have precluded a routine launch
@ who probably took advantage of weak passwords
No. He fell for a phishing attempt, and logged onto a fake site, after being told his account would be closed if he didn't.
It's a common scam.
that it doesn't occur to terrorists to say nothing about terrorism during taxi rides.
The Lads from Lagos have joined in too.
"A dormant domiciliary account with a point balance of ($8.3m USD) has been willed to you by late Veronica Ivanovitch, 57; Swiss-Brazilian; the wife of telecoms millionaire Hans Ivanovitch, who died amongst crew and passengers aboard Air France Flight 447, which crashed in the Atlantic Ocean en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris carrying 228 people on Sunday, 31st May 2009."
