put a woman in charge..
not forgetting there was a female officer (do we still call them WPCs) in charge the day an innocent brazilian had the contents of his skull displayed for all to see on a london underground train..
so much for the fairer sex then huh.. or maybe Cecilia Dick has a.. well.. penis

for fuck sake
so you would have to throw this thing pretty exactly to avoid taking out your own equipment..
and seeing as most of the fighting for the foreseeable future is against someone with nothing more high tech than a beard, sandals and/or an AK.. seems like a lot of money for pretty much no good reason
who give one??

MS reinvent wheel shock
In 1954, the introduction of color TV heralded the dawn of a new era in entertainment. On November 19, more than 50 years after that dramatic shift, a new era in home entertainment begins with the New Xbox Experience, as millions of Xbox 360 consoles transform in an instant through the power of software.
Nice to know
seeing as the company i work for is just me and the boss (don't get much smaller) and we're on 60 days with computacenter..
must mean we're bigger than we thought...
and they screwed up the last payment run.. so they reckon.. which means they're even more behind this month
12 billion quid to work out that you can't build a big enough pipe to transfer thousands of high def xrays every day and that you can't get doctors to standardise their notes..
and 12 billion reasons why if you want an IT project completely fucked then give it to uk.gov..
people taking pictures of london landmarks...
.. the swine.
nail em up i say..
next they'll be "cruising" the thames in "pleasure" boats.. underneath bridges, past the houses of parliament and everything..
maybe next we can stop people getting on passenger planes.. you know just in case one of them has any wierd ideas..
stay in your homes people.. at least that way we know where you all are and you can't cause any damage..
and just so you know.. if you try to communicate with the outside world.. we have it tapped.. so don't try anything funny.. or dirty.. or any one of the other things that makes you a thinking, breathing human being.. or we'll outlaw that as well..
it's for your own protection shee.. i mean people.. remember there is a 1168773.8 to 1 chance of you being killed in a terrorist attack...

too many movies
They've been watching too many films like Minority Report and The Imposter.. everyone on a databse tagged with chips or all pervasive retina scanners and the world is happy cos there's no crime ,unemployment or want.. well not for the people with eyes at least..
maybe they want to watch 1984 or THX1138 see what the other side of the coin can look like..
maybe they have and they like what they see..
What you don't know is it was recorded by a bloke but given a sexy timbre when it was sped up...
I prefer the radio ads for home loans where someone really cheerful and sunny tells you that they'll repo your house if you don't pay up...
while working on the ATE test rigs for..
not sure.. thought it might have been some sort of radio..
it was a royal ordinance project and they wouldn't tell us what it was..
army stuff hush hush pip pip big moustache..
anyway every time one of the loaded circuit boards failed the passive resistance test we were told to increase the failure tolerance, where most companies wouldn't allow more than 5% some of these were running at 50% and we were told not to test certain components as they failed so badly.
this was about 15 years ago.. and if any other military projects were tested with the same kind of rigour.. like the bowman
fill in the final thought yourselves

Reg Vardy, take note
'BTW, I strongly suspect it is possible to exceed the speed limit on that shown road.'
seriously it fucking isn't...
behind the camera the road bends blindly to the left with a wall to your left and a junction emerging from the right.. the junction is obscured by a surf hire shop.. after the junction we have a straight bit of road for about 150 yards with parked cars down the right, pavement on the left, after that there as a very sharp bend to the right and the road continues to be tight for 2 cars and very twisty until you get to the next town...
in the picture where the red car is that's just big enough for 2 cars, then it opens up for 50 years then a bend right with walls each side and not enough room for 2 cars.. let alone all the VW camper vans.. the road after that it pretty straight but narrow with passing places until you get out of the vilage.. where there's a very tight left hand bend..
lack of speed doesn't make it any safer though.. where the bike is on the right is where you come staggering out of the pub right into the road..
re: what about the UK
bwahahahahaha.. ahahahahahah ... hahahahahah... hahahahahaha
europe.. hahahahaha.. teeeheeeee.. woooooaaahhhahahahahahaha..
stop it you're killing me..
we brits love waiting dontchaknow.. we invented the queue
been watching too much spooks me thinks
with all their flashy gizmos and screens hidden away in thames house.. they'll be wanting revolving glass security airlocks and immunity from driving vauxhall vectras really fast round the streets of london..
fact they couldn't get it working shouldn't be a shock to anyone.
That's not a staffordshire bull terrier
legs and face are too long..
maybe some kind of pitt-bull/decepticon cross
although it could be that CCTV has once again failed to deliver an image of sufficient quality for a positive identification..
as in :-
Basil Fawlty: Ah, Manuel? There is too much butter on those trays.
Manuel: Que? <------------------------------
Basil Fawlty: [speaking slowly] There is too much butter on those trays.
Manuel: Ah, no senor. No "on those trays"...
[counting the trays]
Manuel: "uno, dos, tres".
hell < handbasket
always seems to me that govs are constantly running round trying to shut the stable door after the horse has bolted... after they opened the stable door..
cars use the same amount of gas as 10 years ago because despite the increases in efficiency in the engine department, cars are now twice the weight with strengthening bars and airbags to meet govt targets on safety.
now they're eyeing set top boxes?? but aren't they pushing the whole "switch of your standard television set and watch something less boring instead on digital"?
digital radios.. what do they consume compared to stuff we've had for the last 60 years?
I'm not some neo-luddite, but (there it is), what do we really get out of it? Better sound quality so you can here the inanities of radio 1 in clearer stereo? 999 channels of repeats? Hands up if you've seen every episode of wheeler dealers or road wars at least twice.
if they were even remotely serious about this then they'd regulate all electrical equipment to have an off switch instead of standby, not as well as.. how about having a mobile phone charger where the input to the primary transformer was only active if there was a phone attached to it. just something to cut the electickery to the whole device when not in use. It's not hard.
