A single story?
What about "Nightmare in Silver"?
Re: Not a DR Who Fan
Nail's? Are you a greengrocer in your day job?
BAL0010 and BAL0011? What about BAL0001? Does anyone know where that is?
The Christmas Worm
Don't forget the poetry it inspired.
But if it doesn't beam me up to the Liberator, then I'm not interested.
Re: Beware of reapers ...
Curse its sudden but inevitable betrayal!
From the WVEC article:
"Authorities are investigating how it came down in the neighborhood."
Gravity would be my first suggestion.
Get out of hell free card?
I have several of those already:
Re: The online game
How about by going here:
I bought from them once
And was inundated with spam from third parties.
Scrapped that email address, never used them again.
Re: So, given that my cards are in my wallet
I had an Barclaycard One Plus, which was RFID credit card + oyster card.
When Barclaycard took over Egg credit cards, they sent me a new RFID card, which stopped the oyster card part of the One Plus card from working. Barclaycard swore blind that it wasn't having any effect and refused point blank to replace it.
So I no longer have any Barclaycards, nor will I ever again.
Math make you head hurt?
Math make me head hurt.
Me bang rocks together. No count rocks.
That appears to be a re-branding of the Infinit Solar backpack I bought last year.
The quality was terrible. One of the interior zips wouldn't close (the zipper moved, but the zip stayed open.), several of the seams have come apart and the solar cell was rubbish.
The battery would charge up, but would be flat again in less than a day. It seemed like the solar cell was draining it. I added adaptors to charge my PowerMonkey from the solar cell (It holds it charge perfectly well, normally) and that was flat a day later.
So I'd recommend you avoid this like the plague.
On the other hand, we bought a Wenger backpack for our accountant's birthday, a year ago and that is still a fantastic piece of kit. I think that'll be my next choice.
So, from the title...
...should we assume it's pr0n or badly written?
I had four emails last night to our two dropbox email addresses. Again, these addresses were not given to any other organisation.
Re: "We're all doomed!"
Are there any stalls in Camden Market that aren't selling magic crystals and hemp-based trinkets?
The high cost
Is apparently due to "previous metals" according to Reuters...
Now we can expect a deluge of phishing emails, pretending to be changing a linkedIn password.
I already get enough spam to the email address that only LinkedIn has been given.
Re: Enjoyed that
Only the first one appears to be free at the moment.
Re: sterilisation or pasturise or desalinate
It's unclear (to me, anyway) as to whether it's pulling heat from the cool area, or just directing it away. Condensing the steam in the cool area would, obviously, warm up that area.
If it is cooling the cool area, effectively pumping the heat into the hot area, then coupling it to a stirling engine might be interesting.
That has got to be a candidate for the best ElReg headline of all time. :)
In other news, you owe me a new keyboard. :)
Re: Never trust a publicity junkie
It never ceases to amaze me how people spout off with righteous indignation while getting all their facts wrong.
The Pi went on sale today. Farnell sold out of them in about 15 minutes. RS for some reason didn't start selling. (I'm not sure what they think a "launch" is, but they royally cocked up."
The Pi has a processor, GPU, memory, storage, HDMI output, USB ports and a network port. It runs GNU/Linux. How does this not make it a computer?
Re: I don't get it...
Of course it would be perfectly sensible.
And the police shouldn't need to get a search warrant to smash down your front door and ransack your home just in case you have some stolen property, or drugs, or kiddie porn inside.
That seems perfectly sensible too, yes?
When they're plugged into a computer?
The following one, obviously!
3,000 degrees Farenheit?
What's that in the 21st century?
There's another problem with taking off from the ground...
We "saw" him at Jersey last year.
I say "saw" because he was so high up, all we could see was a tiny dot, with a pale grey trail behind it, until he ran out of fuel and opened the parachute.
He had to fly so high because of the time it takes to open a parachute large enough to support the extra weight of the wing. Flying at a lower altitude, and taking off of course, would put him in the situation where he could recover from an engine failure.
"impossibly-hard-to-kill vampire slayer"
I seem to recall that she was killed twice.
Although she came back on both occasions, despite being buried for a while the second time.
Mine's the one with the box set in the pocket.
To quote Ambrose Bierce:
PRAY, v. To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled in behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.
Just about sums up this farce.
Screen saver images?
In the States, the $79 Kindle comes with adverts on the screen saver, rather than images, to remove them you have to pay $109 to have them removed. Am I right in thinking that the UK version doesn't have the ads?
Which would change the equivalent cost from £60 inc VAT to £84 inc VAT, making the UK version almost as cheap as the US one.
