Re: With 20Mp sensor - NOW will you try Windows Phone 8?
But they already have disappeared into a room, and come out with phone, well some of them have.
It's a Jolla phone with an OS known as Sailfish!
Re: Somebody PLEASE!!!!
Have a look at IrfanView & Paint.Net.
Between the two of them you can do a lot, rather than use Adobe. Please remember they much appreciate donations.
Re: Beards are Best
AN up vote for you Sir, I agree entirely, 1 cm works well for me as well.
I've had my beard since the mid-60s. Sadly no longer gray, now almost pure white, mind you, it still seems to work!!!
If like me, you have had to deal with 'PayPal', you would be totally amazed at that payment.
Totally amazed that is, that they handed over even $3, never mind $3000.
Well, well, well.
"Investigators traced the attack on the banks to six computers in North Korea, which had accessed the banks’ networks more than 1,590 times since June 2012."
It's a good job someone had looked at those logs during the last 10 months, otherwise goodness knows what might have happened.
Re: Back into medieval times
Yes yes! Now don't you worries, in Belgium nearly every town has a nice big almost new library.
The one thing they all have in common, is that they are all full of books, along with a few computers, but apart from the staff, virtually empty of people.
To, One Of The Very Best.
Thank you Ian, for all your brilliant work.
O hell, that all I can say.
If they can just get the new laws through Congress in time, they might even be able to go for the death penality!
Anyone know how they kill them in Wisconsin, electric chair, very aproprate, or would he get to chose, a firing squad provided by Kochs maybe?
Re: And the "Standard Model" is?
This is unbeliveable, I have just given Eadon an up vote!
Today, he is clearly Beyond His Standard Model.
Re: Munich doesn't pay more. It uses Linux and open source
Well Munich must have more sense than all of Belgium.
Here if you mention Linux or open source, everyone thinks you are talking about something new to put on your fried chips.
This is a brilliant idea!
All M$ have to do is write into the OS. "This OS will stop working on (Insert Date) unless you contact our store and pay for the new update"
No more new releases needed, just SPs, Then they can milk the cow for ever more, for as much as they like.
Re: Block smut & violence
WHAT! (or simple to opt-out/disable) no no no!
The Chinese are showing us the excellent way forward, we will soon be censoring all that bad political content as well.
George Orwell was simply a little overoptimistic with his time frame.
"Worse yet: they also seem to have no clue, what so ever, what's living amongst their own employee's."
NOW PLEASE WAKE UP.
This is a goverment department, so what in hell do you expect!!
Re: *four* platters
Ha- Yes, I do so miss my line of 60MB Winchester Drives all spinning happily, while the air conditioning roared away at maximum cooling, at it struggled to cope with the heat.
Nothing new here, just the USA's way of running things.
The poor pay taxes and stay poor, while the rich get richer, so?
Re: I can't see it...
Bullshit, Mercedes have a very big proble in Europe, driving a big desiel un-green saloon car is no longer seen as cool.
The "S" series is supposed to be their answer to that problem, but it's a load of crap, little different to so many of the other small saloons.
OK. so you have just got my up vote, but you would do well to remember this.
Every organized religion before and after Mohammed has done the same. They just use different names, and rules, but it's the same principle.
A not so simple problem.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes
Re: It's the best theory we have so far
"How about this: our models are wrong."
About time someone said that, well done.
Sorry, but I can only give you one up vote.
Re: Is there something in the coffee?
Life on Mars?
Life in the coffee we get?
Not a bats chance in hell!
Dark Matter again?
Dark Matter must be the most useful form of matter ever discovered!
You can't detect it, measure it, or explain what in hell it might actually be.
Yet every time anything unexplainable is detected anywhere in the universe, then it is the good old dark matter causing the observed effect.
Dark Matter, the answer to everything that can't be explain, a sort of scientific universal God.
"But the findings do mean that there's probably water on celestial bodies across the solar system."
As our sun is an fairly average star, are we now saying, that there's probably water on all the planets we are now discovering around other stars?
If so what's the new probability for life on any of those planets?
Re: The energy cost?
"Would it not be much easier, cheaper and quicker simply to build a small proportion of the nuclear power generators that would be needed here on Earth."
Yes, yes, yes, but totally impossible. You must try to understand, nuclear power is not green, however many problems it might help us to solve.
Re: A few points for you all.....
Exactly the same from here.
I'm not so sure, remember China is BIG and is controlled by a single huge, centralised bureaucratic system.
I wonder, just how much do they actuality do know, about what is going on at ground level.
Re: It truly was a geek paradise
I used to go up to town regularly by train, back in the 60s and 70s just to shop in Tottenham Court Road.
It was the most marvellous geeks paradise, with shops full of new and second hand electronic equipment of every sort.
Ha, those were the day but sadly, all good things must come to an end.
Re: At long bloody last...
In Belgium "Green" is definitely a popular and powerful religion.
The result is, any politicians who want any chance of getting elected, now have to be fully paid up members of the "Green Church." Their policies are often quite amazing, but not always amusing.
Basic electronic theroy class:- week 1.
What is a capacitor? Well think of it as a very small battery, which is why you must charge it before there is a voltage present. Therefore current must lead voltage.
That's not bad after more than 50 years.
Re: People who've been around the block a few times...
"Is that why OAP's are constantly scammed by confidence tricksters and cowboy builders?"
NO, some of the people who have lived long enough to be OAPs. haven't ever been out of their own street, never mind around the block once or twice. People born pre. WW2. do have a problem, I know, one lives with us!
Re: Gun ownership.
Actually all the criminals were shipped to Australia, the US only got the the bible bashing loonies.
I know, it's so unfair that the US got such a bad deal!
Re: looking to go unnoticed?
"anniversary of invasion of north-west Europe by Allies." Here in Belgium, our family along with quite a few other people, have a special reason every year, to remember that the 6th June was "D Day."
Re: What's fascinating about this
(and the need for dark matter goes away.)
About bloody time too, the sooner we get rid of this magical dark matter, that can't be detected what soever, the better.
Except to balance our accepted theory of the universe, nothing else in astronomy or sub atomic theory, supports it's existence. Either the missing mass is out there in good old fashioned mass somewhere, or our theory of the universe is wrong!
Re: at least they are trying
Simply because, if no one had ever dreamed of living in a mud hut, we would still be living in caves. Even when the first huts collapsed when it rained, which they probably did, they managed eventually to get it right.

Re: Great HR mistakes of our time - Aviva fires 1300 by email
Just what is the problem, Friday afternoon so someone in HR. is Just passing the time by practicing their work for next month.
"All the plans of mice and men." Can be very successful indeed.
Re: When your opponent has nuclear weapons.....
What a good idea, we should all be paying €5,000 or more for a nice little GPS. properly built to military specifications.
Please, please try and remember!
"What politicians say doesn't have to make sense, it simply has to win votes"
The government at the moment needs to win "Green" votes, so just ignore the cost and stupidity, as they are irrelevant.
Re: Single balloon elevated
A "T" shaped truss is spot on! Just use the 3 ends as suspension points, triangles are more stable anyway, then decide which way up to mount the truss.
To reduce spin, a tail something like that of a kite's would help. Due to the ascent their is bound to be air flowing downwards with some horizontal vector to it.
Re: They obviously didn't understand 'caveat emptor'
Yes, their Tech Boys must have known all about the problems they would cause to GPS. But the problem in the end was, C² simply underestimated the amount of political donations required to get away with it.
Re Re: Ho Dumb
Well he/she may be dumb, but is still basically right.
M$ do leave a lot of holes in there OS by design, it is called, "built in obsolescence."
Otherwise who in hell would fork out for Win7 or Win8 that offer little that is new for the average office workstation, when XP. is quit sufficient for the job. Just stop the updates, and M$ has more money in the bank.
The weather has been "COMPLETELY NORMAL of late." It just keeps changing in unexpected ways as it always has, since the atmosphere of earth first formed.
