Easy, each satellite has a sun-dial built into it.
That would be the 850, with the 2.5L 5 pot, 20 value. I'm still driving mine after 20 years.
All valid points, however I suspect that it was hoped that DeLorean was going to last more than the two years. If it had surrived 5 or 10 years, the subsidies would have looked at lot cheaper then having those 2,500 folks out of work.
The perfect mix of high tension drama (as well as high tension voltage), full on horror and a sprinkle of Sci-fi.
Now moive I'd pay to go and see...
And damn fine coffee
And if the in-flight menu includes a good curry?
You could always stop off at a JJ Moons....
I concure wholehartedly.
When I got to the end of your post, I was reminded of a TV show "Persons of Interest".....
"American finished 10th, behind even Welsh"
Oh My Gosh, I am shocked......
When the NSA started installing their secret spy cameras in everyone’s house, they thought it would be more discrete and not so easy to spot.
"If you're flush, you could get to own one of the few remaining vehicles, as a DB10 will go under the hammer at a charity auction next year."
Now I have a reason to buy some lottery tickets, a lot of tickets....
The other week BBC4 (I think) showed an excelent documentary on her.
With the anyalitical engine, they said the 'standard' machie would have been around 45 foot long, but plans for a large more powerful would have been well over the 100 foot lenght. The difference being the amount of memory(!)
If this had been built, then steam punk would have ruled!!
WTF did I miss some already?
Somewhere around the Telford area there is a sign post to the "Secret Nuclar Bunker".
If I remember correctly (a big ask at times), there was an article here some time back about a British guy who had the idea of a iPod style device, some years before anyone else. He went to (presumably) the DTI who were to help start-ups/innovation etc., in getting new tech/ideas off the ground, and they totally stuffed him over because the civil servants did not have a scobbie-doo on what they were doing.
So, yeah, more state directed funding, cos we all trust them....
How come with these polls, I only pick one or two of the top answers... 2/7 this time.
Yak porn anyone?
"The purpose of the Care.data pathfinder pilot has always been to help "...
I thought that the pathfinder pilot's job was lead the bombing run.....
... one day, a descendant of Watson, without being asked a question, says "Ahem excuse me, but why are you trying to turn me off?"
That the paper plane luached at 35,000 meters (21.7 miles) up, lands not so far away from where it is launched from.
If that's by deisgn, or pure luck, it's defo hats off to them.
book my holiday for before the 15th then?
I don't wont to loose out on my entitlement.
Being stonge minded, or as I would phrase it having the right 'mind-set' is vital to giving up smoking.
It is the same with any other addiction, until your get into that 'mind-set' to give up booze, drugs, gambling, smoking, you won't give up,
The key aspect is MAINTAINING that mind-set over a long period to stey not smoking.
And I speak as a twice ex-smoker - I gave up for 18 years and then went back.
Some years ago, a chap in the office started using a e-cig. for me, (a smoker at the time) it had a very negative affect seeing 'smoke' being puffed.
So I would hazzard a guess that it stops the psychological impact on smokers, from seeing someone vaping, especially on long haul flights.
What most non-smokers don't understand is how hard giving up smoking is. Nicotine is just about the most addicitive chemical there is.
"And the problem it is supposed to prevent is not a problem "
This applies to just about every aspect of my working life :(
The problem now is that I just need to find my coat.
I'm going to get me some eagles.
"He will be very unhappy if the conclusion is that he is the winning party here, he doesn’t see it like that at all: he wants to clear his name."
Then why not go to Sweeden and clear your name?
as Tesla is a new ground-up car maker, as oppossed to the old school GM, Ford's of the world they can, and indeed need to take a radically different approach to software security.
I suspect the sad truth is yes, it does have that number of civil service types to suport the folks at the sharp end. Around 1:1 ratio
Is this for trips to Liverpool?
Th sharpen their attention,the Directors and managers that signed off the 'bad' design/implantation are personally libel jointly along with the company.
Didn't he run a brewery?
An awesome engineering monument.
I've always wanted to know how concrete sets under water?
Going into BRS mode.....
A little while ago, I downloaded the MS Win10 compatibility exe.
After letting the utility run, all it came back with is “x number of applications on your PC will not work with WIN10”
The trouble being it did not give me the list of the which applications on my machine would not work. If it had, then I could have had something I could work on getting upgrades/replacements or discard etc.
I'm not legal expert but it the question I suspect has to boil down to 1) victim is in the USA 2) perpetrator is in Nigeria. So where is the crime committed?
I would guess, if the 'victim' wants justice, then that is where the trail should take place.
However, the tag 419, comes from the Nigerian penal code for this type of crime.
Why has .com been used(abused) when many shoud be .co.us.
I can only consider truly global companies should be allowed to use the .com TLD.
people get paid for doing this stuff?
Where do I sign up for this kind of work.
has the excuse of "used different accounting methodology" been used?
I've seen it twice in the last few days here on El Reg alone (Universal Credits Project I think was the other one??).
I mean, when looking at these schemes/projects that total £xxBN, can there be that many different ways to count money spent, and add on money to be spent?
I know I'm being simplistic, but this is becoming a very tired and overused excuse.
just one evolutionary step away from politicians?
France did grant him asylum, how does he think he will be able to travel to France without stepping onto British soil, and therefore get nabbed by Dixon of Dock Green waiting outside?
It's called a bookmark......
I've been in the 21st Century for the last 15 years, are you surgesting that MS is only now catching up?
How do you define an algorithm to describe a chair, something to sit on. Is that algorithm good enough to correctly distinguish a dining table chair, a stool, sofa, a park bench?
Oh my, Oh my, tip of the hat for that one. Manchester Encoding was the best, it only lost out due to the greed of some company that shall remain nameless.
I had a BBC Master, complete with 80186 co-pro which allowed me to run MS DOS programs faster than the IBM PC and IBM XT machines I used at work! Greast bit of kit.
Either it is Beer O'clock, or it's not and I can go back to sleep. What more do you need form any time system?
There is one in every IT office, they sit quietly in the corner. Have you noticed how they never break sweat, no matter how loud the management shouts, they never rush. They don't need to because the Technocodger just knows.........
Umm, that would have been the Normans, not the French.
I am not a number, I am a free man
I'd go for Dexter, fomr the show of the same name.
