Stephen Fry MADNESS: 'New domain names GENERATE NEW IP NUMBERS'

Re: Isn't a number that is almost infinite, er, infinite?

0.999 recurring is equal to 1.0, not almost equal. Here's a test: 1-0.999… equals zero.

EBay, you keep using the word 'SECURITY'. I do not think it means what you think it means

Re: Tried to change password ..

I found the close account option quicker than the change password option - so used that approach instead.

Apple's iPod: ten years old

2nd Gen ipod still useful

Still have my 2nd Gen iPod from December 2002 - and found an alternative use a couple of days ago. Internal hard disc died on my iMac, so installed Snow Leopard on the iPod via firewire and ran the iMac for a couple of days from there while waiting for a replacement hard disc to arrive. The iMac was surprisingly useful from the external iPod, although the boot time was horrendous.

Used this setup to update an iPod touch to iOS 5 too.

Units!

Hang on, your units are all messed up! As any fule knows; the correct units for volume are:

# Walnut = 0.16gf

# Chicken's egg = 0.35gf

# Bulgarian airbag (C-cup Posh Spice - allegedly) = 1.1gf

# Bulgarian funbag (DD-cup Jordan) = 3.27gf

# Football = 11.07gf

# Olympic-sized swimming pool = 4,780,114gf

# Known universe

(As defined in http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/08/24/vulture_central_standards/). Can we have an update with correct units?
