Re: Commercial fusion may not be as far away as you think
This youtube video from Google talks covers this nicely..
Should Google Go Nuclear? Clean, cheap, nuclear power (no, really)
Reminds me of the ...
episode of the Big Bang Theory...
A great show, garden shed boffins doing what they do best. Well done to all who provided us with amazing streaming and commentary during the day.... This was WAY better than working :-)
Like going to a brothel
For a hug ....
the gangs running those social networking sites are turning into a bigger bunch of wankers than the bankers are....
When I was young I used to be a filer.. ........
now I basically leave the email in the inbox, if I can/need to deal with it, I do, otherwise it's left there.
If it's urgent they'll call back after being ignored for a few days.
At the end of the month, every email older that 60 days is deleted.
I've better things to be doing than sorting through and managing email ....
Blue US Robotics Sportster....
I had one of them... wow am I really that old?

That is a contender for the best headline of 2012
"Finding brown dwarfs near our sun is like discovering there's a....."
For very extremely large values of "Near"...
use a long length of ....
use a long length of 2 inch pipe, bolted/secured to the gable end of the house to hold the receiver. I've see 12 foot long sections of pipe like this used to mount tv aerials - so it would easily support the gear you have.
It also gives you the capability to increase the height securely.
One word . . . .
I've been following this from day 1 and have to say that the entire project, from start to finish, defines what the register is all about - good honest to goodness tongue in cheek tech reporting with the right amount of irreverence backed by genuine "hacker" mentality and the pursuit of fun.
Well done to all who worked on this and those who backed the project (including the pointy haired back room crew).
This is what is missing from life these days - the spirit of doing something for the fun of it.
I really really do hope that this is just the start, and not the end of this adventure, you guys have the makings of a real annual event here and the possibility to take it international (what with the possibility of a competition with the aussies and god knows who else).
Thank you for a great adventure, it was one of those very rare events that captured the kid in all of us.
I can't wait for the next one.
she's going down .........
3KM . . . . thats nothing
I tried this the other day too... on my iPod Touch.
It located my iPod in Bordeaux, when it was actually in Carcassonne.
That's probably where my broadband was routed through, but not much use all the same.
@Looking at her mugshot
Argggggggg !!!!! The image is burned into my mind !!!!
Paris - Cos that was what I was thinking, until I looked :-(
This is why
I just LOVE this site :-)

40 mins to beer o'clock on a Friday. Perfect!!

So, when is the muppet in .gov that "APPROVED" it going to quit??
@Interesting - Sarah Bee
By any chance can you tell us where they appear to be from??
One country seems to be pondering the introduction of a dedicated symbol for their special little dears who are .... let's say "challenged"
All we need now is ...
the Chinese and Indians to become active.... nothing like a little competition to get things rolling - we should have had bases on both the moon and mars by now.
By a happy coincidence I'm currently reading "An Aspie Story: To Inhabit the Solar System"
He was inspired by the Orion project, it's an enjoyable read..
Looks like the Taliban have
relocated to Australia.
What's next on the hit list for the these fruit cakes?
Good for him
Better than rotting away in some bloody old folks home.... fair play to him and I wish him all the best in his efforts.
And for the whiners out there .....
If the Feds (and most bloody officials) out there had their way we'd never get anywhere so shut the f&%^ up!!
Happy christmas to ye all ... Last day and it's beer o' clock.
Good, the bar just got raised ....
Irrespective of the reasons to use/not use or love/hate the idea of this announcement, it can only be a good thing, for the simple reason that it now "FOCUSES" the minds of all existing OS providers.
This is exactly what Apple did to handset manufacturers and mobile phone operators when they released the iPhone.
Until the iPhone arrived, the quality, usability and functionality of handsets were determined by an agenda set by Operators, not customers. Post iPhone release there have been many major improvements right across the board and most important of all - putting the needs of Joe/Jane public back higher up on the list of priorities.
If Google actually deliver an OS experience to a similar level of what Apple did with the iPhone, then everyone will benefit. Microsoft, Apple and the various *NIX vendors will need to step up to the mark and justify why their version is better.
I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out. Everyone is a winner if Google succeed with this.
Just my 2C.
Fecking Brilliant !!!!
Their competitors could not have done a better job at getting people to choose an alternative. Just who the f&%K is running the show in that place?
Me thinks the *NIX/Apple crowd have a mole working inside the beast. Its the only logical conclusion to the clusterfuck that this release is turning into.
What were they expecting ...
"...... who have since apologised for the cock-up."
That's what happens on smut sites. And to think ye were only commenting on the Irish papers re "working to the bone... etc. etc." earlier.
Paris..... well, you know....
Well done Lewis, a great read . I'm looking forward to your report on what happens when this thing is actually fired up and the results are out.
so what's a dog's bark like when
the dog sees a pussy, "muff muff..." ??
