Somehow, I'd rather the name Vulcan went to an actual inhabitable planet around another star.
Re: Time for a new X-Prize?
Probably best to slow the spherical seed down afterwards - if it hit an inhabited planet nearby at c/10 there would be no chance for peas.

The left picture is rotated 90 degrees CCW. So your hand will be fine, you'll just get a crick in your neck from using that mouse.
Are Virgin Media going to have to explain how it costs them five quid to process an on-line credit card payment as compared to direct-debit payments?

PC LOAD LETTER means you forgot to change the paper cassette messages to INSERT 10p THEN PRESS CONTINUE.
Re: daddy long-legs
No, no, lol. Not crane flies, but Pholcidae. And I thought they were meant to be the most venomous creature in the world. Anyway, Mythbusters disproved that: http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/mythbusters/mythbusters-database/daddy-long-leg-spiders.htm
Nevertheless, they do an excellent job of keeping down the spider population in my abode.
While they're waiting...
...why don't they finish their 2G network?
Well, that's .com as-is down the pan then.
Is this anything to do with LightSquared?
Re: Want one NOW!
In a sort of Schrödinger-esque fashion, you can use a cat and a door. You open the door for the cat, and there is a 50/50 chance it will actually go through.
If they wanted it to be cost-effective for their "customers", they wouldn't use non-geographic numbers that cost a fortune to call from a mobile.
Perhaps there are some people who shouldn't be allowed near code editors ever again, all the way down to ed and Notepad, if they don't code to prevent SQL injection attacks.
So, when's the next XSS exploit due?
Does this mean Ethereal is going to change its name again?
Easy-to-use fix for early OS X
There's an installer package available at
to do all the fiddly certificate stuff. It is not as simple as changing all Diginotar certs to "not trusted for all users" - apparently that triggers a bug which will leave you even more vulnerable, if I read correctly.
"brainier, more tasteful"
So, come the zombiepocalypse...
What if it actually is a good song?
And the solution was?
There's no point only telling us it was a "dirty hack" - we need the details so if the same thing happens on our satellites we know how to fix it too.
And can I add...
Here, this one's even funnier: in Mac OS X, you click on a picture of an apple to shut down! Where's the connection there? Start/Stop Apples/Pears?
And that icon in Windows isn't labelled Start (any more), and you can set the computer to shut down when you press the power switch.
Wrapped around the end-stop
Politicians are "talking" - why isn't the worm burying itself into the "dislike" part?
Gravity & density differences
"if you can come up with a way to keep liquid, in a closed system, circulating with no outside power requirements..." - see back-boilers, which work by convection. Not only for liquids: domestic radiators give off most of their heat by convection, not, as the name would suggest, by radiation.
Just one corner of the Bermuda triangle then?
What would be the impact on the USA if all those goods were banned from being imported? Other manufacturers wouldn't be able to ramp up production /that/ quickly to fill in the gap. Isn't there some law against attempting widespread disruption like that?
Well, that surprised me, I didn't know BlackBerrys ran Windows Server 2008.
