kitchen cupboard material...
required, and must contain letters.
Can he sell them as development aids?
For iPhone developers to perfect their designs ;)
IP enabled thermostats (read temperature and regulate valve), thermometers (maybe in light switches, which could also be IP controllable) and boiler controls.
Of course the manual override still has to work, and you need power to the radiators, but that can't be insurmountable.
with a staple gun - having hitched their trousers to "Cowell" rather than "exhibitionist"
Overnight charging is possible - 50 miles to work is longer than the vast majority of people.
If you have parking at work then you might be able to charge during the day as well...
DNSSEC, and an SSLkey record type
Then we can forget about all of these dappy certificate issuing bodies and roll our own without warnings - the browser (or other application which wishes to communicate securely) can simply look up the required certificate via a secured sideband transmission.
If we want to get all clever about it then why not add DNSCurve to the list as well, encrypt the DNS queries as well...
I now have a BT keyboard connected, then I can case my phone easily, and have a full sized (95% of laptop) keyboard when I need it...
Mine's the one with a folding kb in the pocket...
Can anyone tell when they are in the 1%?
The rest of the HTC range will benefit from the slimmed down SenseUI
Tell your machine that when it sees this UUID device (For which you can sub a readable name) that is should run a certain program with parameters.
Preferably a program held on the PC, not the device, but it doesn't really matter if you trust your devices.
Such a system can't be that hard (udev?) for a behemoth like Micro$oft to wrap a pretty gui round for your granny to use. Backup drive manufacturers could even interface with it..
For Android 2.3.3 install cyanogenmod...
Other after market firmware versions are available...
It's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be (although I did get into a reboot loop once, it wasn't terminal)
So - where do you park during the day?
Why not charge up at work - where spaces are more reliable - 3 phase is probably available as well.
A reset to eliminate software issues before a hardware return.
Not every week - just when a customer is suggesting that their handset is broken.
Only if the containment was too large.
Nukes convert a miserly fraction of a percent of their mass into energy - an antimatter bomb would release it ALL. Of course it would release it mostly as Gamma, whereas a nuke releases large quantities of heat as well (due to the reaction of the remaining mass.
Print in wax
Then use in a lost wax casting.
Chrome plate the result...
Overkill for a one off entry (such as that required by the AA, or a thief)
You copied my pixels Waaa WaaaHaaaaa.....
Amazing - if they'd lifted the graphics then that it one thing, but to assert ownership over a pretty obvious shape, after all my chopping board is that shape.
the apple keyboard in there?
What we need to do is to have a standard DNS record for SSL keys.
With DNSSEC implemented you have a full trust relationship (to your DNS root provider), and there is no need to have these third party certificate signing authorities...
Read it again
A) Cyanogenmod (other aftermarket firmwares are available)
B) It's a server side fix (refusing the HTTP connection makes handsets try HTTPS)
Missed the point
Your job is still needed. The skills are still needed.
But you can't do much (other than planning) without some actual cable (optical or electrical or other yet to be discovered/invented) in the ground.
Digging a hole does not require networking knowledge, just a spade. Once they have laid conduits you're network hardware colleagues can simply come and blow the cables along...
it's been designed to detect pedestrians - Oh, wait. It hasn't.
So now BMW drivers will fly round corners safe in the knowledge that they'll only hit something squishy.
PS -Yes I read the speed limitation on the system.
PPS - Yes I realise that this is no different from many BMW/Audi drivers at the moment.
Aftermarket firmware is the only way to get upgrades in a timely fashion.
Carriers don't care - you're already paying
Manufacturers don't care - they want to sell you a new phone
Most vehicles aren't "Veteran" after just 24 journeys...
Although measured in miles, or fuel consumption it could be valid.
Now can we design the orbital vehicles we need?
Like a small crew vehicle, and separate cargo vessels - so that the crew is carrying less fuel, and can be further away from it...
is automated, so of course it will happen to car transporters...
I do hope that she has to pay for corrections to the spinal deformity she is undoubtedly cultivating.
"The hope is that this kind of modeling will help clinical research."
Is it just me who read that as meddling, not modelling?
And charities / community groups?
Will I still be able to throw up a cheap, easy, reliable, well featured service to support community groups?
I could break my Sony boycott for that...
Boycotted all things Sony (electronics) since the rootkit fiasco, but that clamshell look schweet
The abort system ignored the obvious method (the shuttle itself).
IIRC the latest theory is that the crew component of the shuttle went off on a graceful arc before a fatal collision with the sea.
"According to the Kerwin Report:
The findings are inconclusive. The impact of the crew compartment with the ocean surface was so violent that evidence of damage occurring in the seconds which followed the disintegration was masked. Our final conclusions are:
the cause of death of the Challenger astronauts cannot be positively determined;
the forces to which the crew were exposed during Orbiter breakup were probably not sufficient to cause death or serious injury; and
the crew possibly, but not certainly, lost consciousness in the seconds following Orbiter breakup due to in-flight loss of crew module pressure.
Some experts, including one of NASA's lead investigators, Robert Overmyer, believed most if not all of the crew were alive and possibly conscious during the entire descent until impact with the ocean."
Fisher did the research, not NASA, and the Russians could easily have suffered major failures from floating grains of graphite.
Now a wax crayon...
Makes my desk at work a little less boring.
Just need to check all my pictures are SFW
solar powered lifting body airships...
could surely survive for months on end (longer if we can ferry up helium canisters -fairly easy to have a big catch plate on top of the airship surely...
Better than a bottle dynamo?
Eccentric cams on a pedal cycle (maybe in the BB) would be a good application, nice discreet powerful "dynamo"
Hit the screen?
"The Phantom Menace in 3D is due to hit cinema screens on 10 February next year."
Surely due to float in front of cinema screens...
"A full investigation into the network design and components is being undertaken to verify if there are any design issues to be addressed."
There is clearly a nasty single point of failure here. I am going to stick my neck out and suggest that it isn't the only switch which could have gone pop (as they had to systematically close off the network).
Is this stuff not monitored?
45 Hours continuous operation
So it's useful at the poles then. I rarely get 45 hours continuous sunshine this far south/north.
That looked like they put alot more force into the iPad1 screen...
Hats off to them...
Good response - which is much more important than being invulnerable to start with.
The water won't be radioactive (above normal levels) all year.
It's won't have significant levels after a month (assuming that the contamination was a one instance release)
An office worker needs to work 40 hours a week. They may (with flexitime) choose to work more on a Monday and Tuesday, and less on a Thursday and Friday.
That doesn't mean that they've done too much work on Monday, just that they've redistributed their working week.
(Sorry - not a good analogy, but the best I can come up with in zero time)
Main reason the limits are set:
There isn't a evidence for any risk at levels significantly higher than the legal limits. But, partly due to wild mistrust of anything with the "N" word, we have these very low limits in place.
If I recall correctly, when I was at school it was the case that normal tea bags were actually sufficiently radioactive that technically they should have been dealt with as Medium Level Waste. (Note that I can't currently spot anything to back that claim up - not that I've tried very hard)
As in didn't collapse (except the crane) or suffer significant structural damage from what we can only describe as an $EXPLETIVE big earthquake followed by an $EXPLETIVE big tsunami.
Following that there have been a couple of explosions, and the occasional evacuation for limited time.
Seriously - that's what's good about this place, you can see and predict the dangers which are happening.
If I was outside the plant at the time of the quake/tsunami then I'd likely not care what was going on - I'd be on a cloud with a harp already...
irradiating the land you aim to occupy is such a good plan.
I think we can do at least as well as the Egyptians did a few thousand years ago when they buried their kings/gods. That would be a legacy ;)
Think about a couple of reinforced concrete pyramids ;) Of course we could also go for deep, deep sea storage, or (when we finally build a space elevator) we could chuck it back at the greatest local nuclear reactor of all - the sun.
Oh, and the minor point that most fission power stations have some quite significant defences (in the form of concrete and steel).
Looking around the area one of the safest places to be was inside the power plant - new information indicates that the tsunami was twice the height of the defence design specification. There have been a handful of "normal" deaths (i.e not related to ionising radiation sources).
The buildings survived rather well - the shutdown was well in progress when the tsunami took out significant amounts of the infrastructure (but still not the buildings)
We should carry on building nuclear reactors as safely as we know how, we should look at non-weapons tech to build safer reactors still. We should look at mini plants (substation sized).
What's the point in allowing a second list?
Whitelists == OR
Blacklists == AND
required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
Better than them (or say the petrochemical plants) being totalled by the quake.
If they'd just vented straight to atmosphere initially, would we have had the hydrogen explosions?
Maybe that's the important bit here - In cases like this we should just vent anything with a half-life below 10 minutes (or above a few trillion years (that's >1000 times the most stable uranium isotope)) direct to the atmosphere.
Or maybe we'll use dedicated, remote, intermediate chambers...
My daily dose.
Although I saw something about Libya on the news today - is there something going on there?
And fitting in my existing light fittings.
Else I'm sticking with incandescent - they even contribute to my household heating.
We should look at that <50 fatalities over 40 years and then look at each reactor. We might want to look at their backup systems better, and look at what the design considerations were.
Some may then be retired early.
We should however look at the more modern breed of reactors, and see what we can do about developing non weapons tech power generation from nuclear sources.
I'm remaining massively impressed with the over engineering of these reactors - in the same way that I was impressed that the twin towers stood for over an hour after being hit by a completely unenvisioned* attack. It's not that it's a good thing, but it's not nearly as bad as the petrochemical** fires burning all over the affect areas, nor the general collapse of buildings, destruction from the tsunami...
I am getting somewhat concerned that the world is ignoring the massive crisis occurring outside the gates of these plants.
* They were designed to cope with an unladen, slow 737 (largest plane at the time) searching for the airport - not fully fuel laden, full speed 757s.
** Including the various gas fires from broken gas mains.
