and the "yet" in that sentence would appear to be completely superfluous. I think we all know that the price will never get back to $38

Re: GPS for Dummies
Because the normal accuracy is usually around 1-2 meters in decent conditions. However 10 meter inaccuracies are not unusual and are dependent on how many satellites are in view and whereabouts in the sky they are. There are other factors too, such as ionospheric and tropospheric error and even if the satellite is in the right place and broadcasting the correct time.
Re: GPS for Dummies
You do when you get statements like:
"The team compared their results to differential GPS - which is about as good as satellite systems get "
RTK can get the GPS accuracy down to sub-decimeter (less than 10cm).
"Six of the cuffed suspects are Russian, two Ukrainian and two Georgian, but all of them were based in Spain, police said."
I would hazard a guess and say all of them were based in Puerto Banus.

Re: Silver Linings
That would make the most sense*. I don't think there is much resale value in fibre. Unfortunately it probably won't stop the scrotes from taking it anyway and then look uncomprehendingly as the bent scrap metal dealer explains to them why he won't be buying the 500m of cable from them.
* does BT do sense?
Re: My thoughts on the matter?
At least we know what he's giving up for lent.
"we have to ensure we do everything possible to protect the Michelin brand image."
But this does not include renewing our domain names in a timely fashion.
I love the image on the site for "Managing Online Reputations- A Dummies Guide"
A Kiwi and an Aussie pass each other on the road. The Aussie has a sheep under his arm.
Kiwi: "Are you shearing that sheep, mate?"
Aussie: "Nah, I'm keeping it for myself."

"I'm surprised it could get signal. Watery flesh usually blocks those wavelengths fairly well."
Well, that rules out an iPhone then...
You're concealing it wrong...

yeah, Desmond's probably under there and you know he has no time for visitors (he has to keep reseting that timer)

Re: "11-YEAR-OLD code wizard"
'suggests that kids are "digitally fluent far earlier than previous generations".'
You might want to explain that to all of us who were coding home computers during the 80s.
Re: Well argued, but..
It's what would have been called in the old days "a diversion".

Re: Error in title
Many, many years there used to be a CB (remember them) magazine that had a comic strip called Buck Fusby which was a piss-take of BT's mascot at the time, Busby. Buck had a brother called Wusby and I always remember the line "Wusby is a banker"

Re: You've written your favourite order of captains??
ah- the Big Bang Effect.
It's Captain Pike or nothing for me ;)
Not Derek. That has to be the worst show on TV right now. Starring Ricky "I was funny, once" Gervais and Karl "I'm so desperate to be on telly" Pilkington.
Re: Even if the parent's knew how to restict their childs phone...
I agree with you, however my wife says it would be unfair for our daughter not to have a mobile as most of her class has one. I pointed out to my wife that as she attended a CyberBullying in Schools seminar last week, then she should understand why not letting our daughter have a mobile is a good idea.
Re: Lack of faith
I've seen a MakerBot made from a MakerBot. But obviously it was smaller than the original.
I have access to a 3d scanner- A Leica HDS C10. But at €70,000, it might be a little expensive for the average hobbyist.

Ghost In The Shell...
Dabbsie as Bateau? I'm slightly terrified by this concept.
Agreed- I always thought that the Trust was in place to stop exactly this kind of thing from happening.
Re: Google Docs...
Believe me, there's nothing important there. If Google wants it they are welcome to it.
PrimoPDF or Foxit Editor both allowed output from Word for ages.
I'm finding Google Docs more than capable for the odd use I have. And it comes with collaboration built in. And is platform agnostic.

Re: I love that prop.
In fairness it was meant to be a discarded policebox in a junk-yard- this was years before the 'chameleon circuit malfunction' story came up.
...when the odd snake turns the tables on one of the little furry feckers, all hell breaks loose...
In fairness, their motion controller gimmick was pretty awesome. However, the article is spot on, since my daughters got an iPod (the eldest) and a Android Tab (the youngest) I don't think the Wii has been switched on once.
In other news- anyone notice how all the kids are playing MineCraft these days??? Take that, Club Penguin, Moshi Monsters, Panfu, Bin Weevils and all the rest.

I just hope they've fixed the issues with the OS going deaf for several seconds; and then processing all the multiple screen-taps. iOS6 has been one miserable experience.
Re: Pound sign
possibly right- I also seem to vaguely remember some hack by sticking a locale or charset command into autoexec.bat.
I made a couple of quid by writing an old GWBasic program which sent a command to the printer telling it to print a pound sign whenever a dollar sign was received.
Re: I'm sorry...
And yet a quick google turns this up:
Can say anything about the ranking because it's been there 3 years. However it would appear that while the warning was put up in February, people were continuing to use (and get scammed) as late as June (from the few sites I looked at).
There's 'trust' and there's 'diligence'.
...but I find it hard to feel any sympathy for the victims. The only thing that TicketBastard does right is give a 'legitimate' source for tickets (I never thought I'd be arguing for TicketBastard).
Re: The guy went a bit overboard
I seem to remember that Angel Dust is the preferred tipple of your average America carney.
"They had the nutter subdued, with no deaths & minimal damage."
He started masturbating AFTER the shots were fired. What part of that indicates that he was 'subdued'?
