At a fairly tender age I joined an amateur radio club in a city in the midlands. It was very educational, especially the one meeting a month devoted to showing porno films.

Re: Blue and Yellow Meccano
Leaded red and green for me, had all the gear sets too :)
Re: Additional source
See this article:
Just won't be the same :(
Takes all the fun of "Hi, do you have small nuts?" or "Hi, do you have large nipples?"
Re: I can second the fuel prices.
But the gallons are smaller, the octane rating is lower, and it's full of ethanol that rots your fuel system ;-)
New sub-contract with Foxconn?

AVON is German for telephone directory
AVON ist die Abkürzung für Amtliches Verzeichnis der Ortsnetzkennzahlen
Re: Keepass FTW
Nowhere in the article does it say "Another company was hacked where users were registered using their yahoo email address and the same password as they use on Yahoo Mail."
Can you point to a statement by any responsible party saying that's what happened? If it did happen that way why are only Yahoo emails affected?
Yahoo needs to come clean and name the mystery third party.
Hey, we had sampling scopes back in the '60's, they were wonderful! You could twiddle the knobs and make the display look like anything you wanted LOL
One Huge Monolith is a Bad Idea
Look back at the valley's history. This gargantuan monstrosity will be the world's largest white elephant in a few years when Apple is as irrelevant as 3Com, HP, and dozens of other former foundations of the local economy have become.
Damn, that's sad, what am I gonna read now ?
Re: Maybe if they bought relevant ads?
How much were they asking?
Re: Don't forget Exatron
Yep, I had one too, it worked very well.
Requesting confidentiality for documents submitted in FCC requests is pretty much SOP. Look up just about any reg number off the sticker on a wireless device in the FCC database and it's very likely that the really interesting stuff (like the schematic) has been shielded by a confidentiality request.
Hard to believe
that any jury of non experts could make a valid determination about a case involving "The present invention is directed to a method of determining branch metric values for branches of a trellis for a Viterbi-like detector. The method includes the step of selecting a branch metric function for each of the branches at a certain time index. The method also includes the step of applying the selected function to a plurality of time variant signal samples to determine the metric values."
"Google has just acquired Meraki" no they didn't, Cisco did.
I plead guilty to all of the above, plus electronic parts going back 40 years or more.
In a rare fit of cleanup I recycled half a dozen Linksys WRT54GS routers, keeping one for a DD-WRT firmware project, only to find a month later that I had dumped all the version 3's and 4's and kept a useless version 7.
Silent 700? Not remotely the same thing.
Is pachinko dead then?
"by which time Netflix will retain just over 8 million DVD rental customers. Slowly over time these will then shift to online, either with Netflix or with rivals"
DVD customers switch to online with Netflix? I don't see how that is likely. If you are subscribing to Netflix DVD's it's because you want to watch movies, and Netflix online has very few recent mainstream movies now. If you want to switch from watching movies to watching 20 year old BBC series (with poor video and sound quality) then maybe...
See http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/entertainmentnewsbuzz/2012/03/zynga-400-million-secondary-stock-offering.html from March - it wasn't just a simple stock sale by execs.
Re: We'll know what it did soon enough
We don't need hackers when the white house is sure to leak the details before the election.
I have to say
Professor Jim looks REALLY happy to see you.
Do people really pay 40 bucks for a dozen cupcakes ?
How does SAP stay in business?
There have been so many horror stories about failed SAP installs that I don't understand how they stay in business. Even though SAP brought HP to its knees a few years ago http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/09/24/hp_saphell_over/ HP hires Apotheker from SAP, do they brainwash the customers or what?
I agree, he deserves a Suspended Sentence
Preferably by the balls.
A question from the colonies
What is the "driver's view of the road" test and how can the vehicle fail it?
Mr. Gonda could probably end up owning Slovakia if gets the right attorney.
Who uses IIS?
According to Netcraft http://news.netcraft.com/archives/web_server_survey.html about 20% of webservers are IIS, pretty scary...
in the US of A, AT&T is spending my money running expensively produced ads trying to persuade me that they are doing a great job rolling out high speed internet connections and the government doesn't need to get involved.
Posted (slowly) from my expensive, highest speed available, AT&T, 768 kbit connection.
What about Oefelein?
He got his own wiki page
I just received an email
Respected Sir or Madam
May I crave your indulgence to open this business discussion through e-mail.
I am Mr.F. Williams Jones, and my uncle Mr. E. Williams Jones has recently passed away here in Nigeria after a long a fruitfull time on this earth. Although deeply saddened by his death the the family has been blessed to discover that he had $50M in 1,300 sudonymous accounts at the Creaky Mountain Bank in The United States of America in the great state of Colorado.
The family deperately needs this money to continue our plianthorpic work improving the standard of living of the Nigerian people. Howvere due to the excessive regulation and corruption here in Nigeria we would lose much of this money if we approache the govement to bring it to us.
So we are seeking partners to help us, we will reemburse you well for you gracious help. We would provide you the creedentials for one or moor (your choice) accounts, all we need you to do is empty the account and forward 50% of the balance by Western Union to acc 9776r418545y Lagos Nigeria.
Esteamed Sir or Madam, we hope for a positive reaction from you

If you have this stuff
why can't you use it in those Merkin helicopters?
There's also an allegation related to the illegal gambling itself, the $566M is the combined proceeds from both activities.
It ain't that simple.
"Why don't the powers that be just decree that from such-and-such a date all emergency comms equipment *will* be common and interoperable?"
Because, unlike the UK, the US doesn't have a government structure to do that. There's a whole bunch of "government" entities that the feds don't control, the states, the tribal (native american) entities, the counties, the cities, to name a few.
"Digital would be better"
Huh? It is digital, it's also analog, trunked etc. etc.
@ Andrew Culpeck
Bankruptcy? Probably not. Generally in the US bankruptcy will not wipe out a civil judgement for an intentional act, it will get you off the hook for a negligent act but that would be hard to argue in this case.
I think she should sue her lawyer next, he sure didn't live up to his public statements about the slash and burn defense he was going to give her.
I don't get it
All I ever hear about SAP is multi million dollar horror stories but they somehow manage to keep signing up new customers.
Once upon a time
UseNet was a great resource, but now it's the cloaca of the internet .
I think it's a toss up which is nuttier
a) Adopting a cockroach.
b) Taking twitter seriously
"If we didn't have such spectacularly over-reaching libel laws over here he wouldn't be able to sue."
I think you mean:
"If we didn't have such a spectacularly over-reaching Home Secretary over here nobody in the UK would even have heard of this a-hole and he wouldn't have this great opportunity for self promotion"
Paris 'cause she's knows how to make something out of nothing too.
Sorry dude, your 2x4 actually has a 3.5" form factor, expect a letter from Seagate soon.

Coming not very soon (maybe) to a showroom near you, the Transconductance.
What's going to happen to the elvers?
What is broadband?
I was starting to believe this report but they lost me when I saw their claim that 76% of US rural residents have access to broadband. The only way I can see that being true is if they are calling 100 kpbs (if you are lucky), with horrible latency, expensive, satellite service as broadband.
I think it should be "unirenal" not "demirenal".
"not accrue" may mean that they are forced to take whatever vacation they earn during that period, in other words their vacation balance cannot increase. I've seen that done elsewhere, but usually over a longer period than a single quarter.
Re: Where's the money
I don't know how CSC's accounting works but many companies that are doing this have a vacation pay fund that accumulates the $ as employees earn the vacation. By forcing the employees to take accumulated vacation they get to pay them out of that fund rather than operating $.
The Asperger's excuse didn't work for Hans Reiser either.
