All you need is some oik to press every button on the way up or down to make you wish you'd used the stairs instead.
I wonder if my previous company has finally got shot of their Windows NT4 SP6a server that they said that they could not switch off (2010). I have my doubts.
Did he mount his Glass on a tripod?
Wow! Who wouldn't want a pirate copy of a film made from a camera mounted on someone's head??? I mean who can keep their head perfectly still when watching a film? Not me or anyone I know!
When a technical advisor type boffin on the Star Trek team was asked, "How does the Heisenberg Compensator work?" Reputedly his reply was, "Very well, thank you."
Re: Wouldn't it be reasonable to have some sort of security?
I wonder if the pilot gets bored he could just load up a copy of Microsoft® Flight Simulator X to pass the time away.
Re: Whoa! 20% Sales Tax? Who pays that?
All European Union countries must charge VAT (Value Added Tax) on all purchases of this type of equipment. Rules are complicated and the rate varies from country to country. For example:
Liechtenstein - 8%
Luxembourg - 15%
United Kingdom (where I live) - 20%
Republic of Ireland - 23%
Hungary - 27%
In the United Kingdom any duty is added before VAT is applied.
But remember for our visitors outside of the EU, you can claim some to all of that back!
So did I, back in Aug 2010. Lucky escape to us both then.
Nothing to see here...
... Move on.
Don't be silly, everyone 'knows' that OSX is immune to malware. AV is not neede!
Get your hard facts from a film?
Ads on DVDs
I have two DVDs with advertisments for Mars Bars, (I don't like Mars Bars, but that is beside the point.) The ads are in the trailers, and you can skip the trailers, you cannot do with the ads.
Thanks auburnman, now I do too.
A balanced answer, indeed.
That would be Oracle.
Time to get rid of my iPad3?
And how does Heisenberg's uncertainty principle work?
It works very well, apparently!
They have just corrected it... Is there an 'UNFail' icon?
Nothing new surely.
Multi Play DVD's which have a digital copy for your portable device have a one time code. Get one of these second hand, you have to hope that the person selling it hasn't already got his digital copy, because if he has, you don't get yours.
Think for Yourself?
Most athiests have their thinking done for them by the likes of Richard Dawkins, Steve Jones, Sam Harris, Philip Pullman and Christopher Hitchens. (The list goes on.) The sad fact is that none of them have proved their point at all, but after all, how could they?
The atheist position is quite simple; you live, you die, you decompose, the end. They claim that they "KNOW THIS FOR A FACT." They build easily knock-down able straw man arguments and think that they are clever. They use arguments against theories that have been rejected by creationists and have the gall to claim that creationists are stupid for believing them.
But why do atheists persist in knocking down the Christians? The answer is in the bible. Ephesians 6:12 states “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
If God did not exist, then neither would the principalities, powers, or the rulers of the darkness of this world. We wouldn’t even be having this discussion; we would all be atheists, with our feet up, enjoying the sunshine. Instead, we have the New Atheist spitting venom at believers all over the world, and state sponsored persecution in most countries, from mild ridicule, as this article is so blatantly demonstrates, to torture.
If the persecution of Christians throughout the world was to stop over night, in all forms, I may well even question my own faith, for Ephesians 6:12 would then all of a sudden, be wrong.
It is debates like this that offer further proof to me that God does indeed exist, and will one day judge this unbelieving world.
My Next Exam...
This may prove interesting for those like me who supervise and proctor exams for (ISC)2.
You are not allowed to take any materials in to stop cheating...
Apart from checking their credetials on such as their passport and admission letter I will also have to gaze deeply into their eyes.
I'll get my coat.
I thought that was one of Tony Scott's best films. Is there a job at Micrsoft for his brother Ridley?
I'll get my coat.
