But I'd rather take my kids to Sellafield.
Is your Personal Computer some kind of Hadoop Cluster?
The abortion limit is 24 weeks in the UK and with good reason. Many abnormalities are only detected at the 20-week scan stage and are not apparent before then. These could mean that the foetus has no chance of survival and may endanger the life of the mother.
Almost all abortions after 20 weeks fall into categories like this. Women don't suddenly decide they don't want a baby half-way in (or if they do they'd get counselling.) The idea that the 24 week limit is there for women who haven't got round to having an abortion yet because they were too busy partying in Ibiza to be bothered is the sort of thing anti-abortion groups would like you to think.
...but then again, who does.
To paraphrase Gaff.
As the brain has been created from cells in the Soma rather then the Germ-line then it will have the equivalent genetic damage of a person of the age of the cell donor. It's already aged.
Let's not have Intel and Rambus giving each other RIMM jobs again at the expense of the consumer!
That would be Zebra then.
Rather than Google, or Lenovo.
Any ideas if your $4.95 applies to more than 1 machine?
To be honest I hadn't bothered with ABP for a few years but I've put it on everything now.
It has the bonus of making The Daily Mash site actually readable rather than flicking around all over the place as the ads load. Also the ubiquitous Clickbait links are gone. Why did I ever stop using it?
No effect if blatted with Linux?
Therein lies the problem that even the most conservative fascists can't confront. What's good for the goose is good for the gander and it would kill those businesses overnight if attempted.
The UI is a confusing mess and a total faff to use compared to Spotify. Why on earth they thought that mashing up iTunes libraries with a streaming service would give a great experience is beyond me.
However, if I can get used to it in the next couple of months and the library is on a par with Spotify I will probably still swap for the above reason. £15 for a family of four is cheaper than Spotify who would charge me £25 for the privilege.
I just wish they'd realise the error of their ways and release an app free from the iTunes bollox.
Best. Comment. Ever.
My lad is 7. Sometimes I have to go downstairs to make the dinner or something. It's re-assuring that his computer is locked to pretty much Minecraft.
The essential elements that caused these countries to become rich are rule of law and enforcement of contract. Without those investment is too risky to bother with, it's better just to farm the masses for small bits of wealth while they remain dirt poor in those circumstances.
Rule of law has to be enforced against the rulers as well as the masses. Hence the reforms of the Glorious Revolution, more so than Magna Carta, kicking off the beginnings of British dominance in the world in wealth and power. Other countries which still allowed their rulers and elites to welch on deals if they felt like it couldn't muster the investment Britain could.
Rule of law and enforcement of contract generally require a reasonably powerful state to enforce them. Wasteful shit will build around it once wealth starts to grow as noted but that doesn't mean all state-spending is such.
Heard on Radio 4 the other day that he'd even launched a Trump fragrance.
Is that a question?
Giffgaff is pretty good for data and signal round me. The call quality is never the best but adequate.
On the other hand Giffgaff is pretty useless at the in-laws. The signal is great and shows no sign of weakness, calls are fine too, but the '3G' connection seems unable to process data at more than GPRS speeds.
I was looking for a new second phone since giving my Moto G to the wife but I'm mightily bored with Android :/
Stands for Controller Area Network, not Car Area Network :)
It's used in Lorries and Aeroplanes, not just cars.
Is still a thing.
Is that a euphemism?
Vehicles use the CAN Bus or variations of. Its behaviour is that a client on the bus broadcasts to all other clients on the bus, providing the bus is currently free or only a lower priority broadcast is underway. Its up to other clients to look at the message and decide if they want to do anything with it.
To be honest it's a great design for the scenarios it was intended for. However, integrating it with the public internet provides some very specific design challenges that perhaps it isn't best suited for. All devices on the bus are trusted by default. Anything on a public network should be untrusted by default.
I had, and loved, an ST. Nowt wrong with the Amiga though. Just couldn't afford both and my friends had STs.
I don't understand how the two are related? The smut-filter is an on-off thing for 'adult content.' How could it help catch nonces?
Don't put me on the same side in any debate as George Galloway. It makes me feel unclean :(
Given the amount of effect this law currently has on behaviour...
But I was the UK's Lib Dem voter, not a Tory one.
OK. Relatively speaking.
Just had to factory reset and restore from backup for a second time as mine lost connection to the iPhone again.
(I got the cheap one to see what it was like.)
How would an exploit on installation instructions be able to get into your POS network?
It should be on a separate VLAN and firewalled to allow nothing in it doesn't expect or that it hasn't just requested. Who would open a PDF or Word document on the POS VLAN?
Like, what the fuck?
...why they want to repeal the Human Rights Act.
Kind of similar to the Amendment To Be song in The Simpsons. They needed to amend the constitution so that they could pass 'all sorts of crazy laws.'
Cthulhu lies dreaming in R'Lyeh which is on Earth, not Yuggoth.
You may be thinking of Cxaxukluth.
Because that would cause 'Insanity, Permanent.'
"Roll for SAN loss..."
Good point but NowTV isn't HD :/
I'd stop the Sky robbery today.
(Someone will now tell me there's a subscription service I've missed.)
I'd also need a way around the football.
Light and pretty.
Or Puppy. Very light. Not so pretty :)
Microsoft would move to Canada (or wherever) rather than be unable to sell their OS to any country other than the US because noone would want it. It would be business suicide and they owe it to their shareholders not to do it and the same goes for almost all tech companies.
Let them bleat about it for another two years. It will come to nothing. Tech company bosses are big political funders too.
I've reviewed many a document or RFP response where the provider claims that all their energy is 100% renewable and (a few sentences on) that they are supplied by dual-feeds from the gas-turbine plant down the road.
What they mean is that they pay their energy provider to be on their renewable tariff. The provider ensures they have bought enough energy from renewable sources to cover those on the renewable tariff. Individual electrons don't give a shit about renewable or not.
Also I'd still dispute the 100% wind-powered claim. Are they claiming they don't have diesel generators that they swap over to on a regular basis to test the resilience? Not much of a datacentre if true.
The Old Kingdom Pyramids in Giza at least were built about 2500 BC so 4500 years ago, not 5000.
The Middle Kingdom Pyramids were about 4000 years ago.
They didn't bother with Pyramids in the New Kingdom.
The oldest Egyptian Pyramid was Djoser's at Saqqara and that's still only about 2650 BC and that wasn't really a true pyramid. Really you'd be looking at the Red Pyramid as the first true pyramid.
Anyone for Serious Sam?
I don't believe you.
Anyone who actually chose a Fire phone must have such poor decision-making skills you'd probably be hospitalised or dead by now after choosing to brush your teeth with a hand-blender and file your nails with and angle-grinder.
Pix or it didn't happen!
It's like looking at your Nan's legs.
Scalability is not the same as availability.
No-one with a clue about what they are doing says a system is 100% available. That would be saying that there is no remote possibility that could ever endanger your system, including Godzilla strike, changes to the laws of physics and err... Moth-ra strike. Or Mechagodzilla. You would only offer an SLA of 100% if you are happy that the payout you are contracted for (or likely to be fined for in this case) is affordable.
Or possibly a pipe-delimited file where the 3rd party has applied a 'get rid of all pipes' filter in the text fields but this fails when somebody puts in a double-pipe which acts as an escape-character sequence for 'yes I really do want a pipe.'
Same route cause as last time would be a good bet.
If I remember rightly you could pair knights of the round with a quad(?) materia which made it go off 4 times. Given that it was a super-long animation anyway I could pop to the off-license and back or have a shit, shower and shave whilst it did its business.
The FBI and CIA can already request all the communications data of suspects from Facebook. They just need to request it. Just because it's encrypted in transport doesn't stop that. Facebook store it and will respond to lawful requests.
Oh wait. That's the point isn't it.
