This project sounds very much like the $1million dollars The USA spent to develop a space pen, one which would write in zero gravity......the Russians decided to use pencils........!
All that was needed was a huge cheap Google like server farm to support an internal cloud (and I do not like the concept of clouds, but that is another story).
Why a helicopter pilot
Why is a special services pilot going up instead of a scientist? Have they got a mission to rub someone out? Or are aliens likely to attack the ISS?
Sounds like jobs for the boy's in this case the Brylcreem boys.....
Re: Help selecting a 7" tablet.
I own and use an IPad 2 and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7. I use the Tab in bed for Kindle books and the iPad in front of the tv, a Lenovo laptop for anything serious (64bit, 8gig ram, 2 x 256GB SSD drives).
Tell mom to get an iPad mini......it is a no brainer.
Never mind the width - feel the software
Yes it is lovely, but..........almost all the android software is absolute cr@p......just look at the store, its all wanna iPhone progs or fart generators.....
android is possibly the greatest missed opportunity of the decade.
Reminds me an awful lot of Sinclair QL and look what happened to that.....
HK .45USP tactical.
12 rnd mag, silencer threaded barrel.
20 rnd mag option
1 hit = 1 stop dead
9mm will not stop a drugged up assailant unless in a vital spot.
.45 SWC (semi wad cutter) chucks em backwards....
choice of SOCOG.
stopped testing for failures at 40,000 rnds.
at 25m I put 10 ot 10 into a 7" group in 30 seconds.
Android printing - a fail
It would appear to impossible to find a way in which to simply print via local wifi from an android device.
There are a lot of "apps" which either suggest cloud printing or printing through a local pc, but nobody can just connect to a local network.
What is it's battery life? This is he difference between iPad and all the wanna be's.......
Landing on carriers
Er.......if they used cruise missiles I believe they don't come back, so no arrester wires etc required?
A few Warthogs (A10's) for ground pounding, and some Hawkeye AWAC's.
Why all this VTOL nonsense? Just to get VIP's home quick? I really wonder.
Replication V Backup.
They used to say that the best word processor was the one you knew how to use. This seems to be the argument that is generally put forward for back up tapes etc.
Replication is not easy, and I do not feel that there is a decent piece of software out there that does the job properley, a bit like voice recognition software, we all want it, we all know it is Holy Grail and we all know it is not here yet!
If you are ever faced with a real life disaster recovery, you will wish you had replication to be able to very quickly rebuild your whole systems.
If you have back ups, this is the time that you find you have not got what you thought you had, and you realise that you have to painstakingly rebuild everything from scratch, this where you find that what you thought was being backed up was infact considered by your predecessor/boss/assistant to be not to be necessary and would save media space/time.
This is the real trouble - too many IT managers believe the sales blurb, and may have passed all the exams but have never got their hands dirty! So real life is not so real until it bites them in the ass!
What they do not understand.....
1/. Do you want to buy a phone that is designed by people who think it is fun to; take off their clothes and pile into a wooden hut where they throw water onto the barbecue until they cannot stand it anymore, then rush outside into the snow and beat each other with birch twigs?
2/. Or would you rather buy a phone designed by a world leading company who make computers that even jounalists can use?
For 1/. read Nokia, for 2/. read Apple.
I bought the Apple because I just wanted a PHONE.....not a wannbe computer with a menu system more convoluted than my intestine.
Well what did youexpect?
BT have been known as the Bastard Thieves or just plain the Thieves for over 30 years to my knowledge.....
If you really want to take action....
Just stop buying Japanese products.....TV's, computers, cars etc
They will soon stop the whalers then.
Personally I don't care about the whales, I have no time for people who worry more about animals, than for example, homeless humans.
Why all this high tech?
A devils island (St Helena?) solution.
No death penalties.
The found not guilty can be recompensed...(with the death penalty it's no good digging them up is it/)
Reduces the housing/NHS/ problem.
It's a win win
And I just found out about Father Christmas as well.......
It seems that you CAN fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot foll ALL of the people all of the time....hooray!
I for one will never waste time on Wikiwacky again.....
Just hope that teachers are NOT using this peversion.
Sage.....Make Microsoft look like philanthropist's
Anything that stuffs Sage is good.
I have never come across a more uncaring, liberty taking bunch of software suppliers that actually don't even know anything about accounting let alone their "products" in my life.
