Clearly this XBox thing is just resting.
Incidentally, I got a few warnings about Microsoft Exchange Online status today, though as I could check my mail, I didn't bother to parse what was being said. Something about engineers working hard.
Time for other companies to move in, shurely?
Yahoo Mobile Mail has been impossible for me to sign into on either Blackberry or Android for some days now.
Is it the asian females which distract you?
I can understand...
There is nothing wrong, but of course there will be contention on titles (especially if they are classics and/or -uugh- "bestsellers") respectively the stuff you want might not be in the archives.
Matty posting from the slightly-right-leaning-neckbeard basement again, and not even trolling?
Don't you have overpriced HP gear to sell?
Very good citizen, our Bore-O-Meter indicates you are reaching level 15, which is pretty much the top of the line of boring behaviour.
However, before we can hand you the well-deserved weekly "Good Citizen" prize, we would like to talk to you about some naughty words you took the liberty to express about the current government when you talked to your dear mother about the (entirely justifiably delayed) social security payout of a hip replacement surgery. This occurred last Monday at 11:35 or so. I am sure you do remember...
I don't know but I want to go BAAAAAAACKKK.
At various times in its history, Dungeons & Dragons has received negative publicity, in particular from some Christian groups, for alleged promotion of such practices as devil worship, witchcraft, suicide, and murder, and for the presence of naked breasts in drawings of female humanoids in the original AD&D manuals (mainly monsters such as Harpies, Succubi, etc.).
Hell yeah. Innocent times.
Aorato was founded by former Israeli Defense Force hackers and offers products that detects attacks on against Active Directory.
Once detection occurs, their program immediately dispatches a couple of viral assassins using fake UK credentials while logic bombs are dispatched to the general subnet of the attackers. Mom & pop PCs caught up in the destruction are invited to visit the webiste of the company where they are then denigrated as "collateral damage that only has got itself to blame" and other far more odious words. Meanwhile, subsidies are automatically transferred by Western Union money transfer from selected bastion of Washington D.C. to support "this plucky company that fights for its existence".
.... endless duty free travel with endless TLA probing.
You now know where the Event Horizon went.

Nonetheless, Cooper said: "We cannot reject this legislation; it would be wrong to do so."
The MP added that it could be used "to get the wider debate we need" on surveillance laws in Blighty
"We can talk whether I can have dessert or not after I have stuffed my face with this immense piece of cake."
OM NOM NOM NOM!
Go to a love hotel and check it out.
How do two guys manage to rape a whole bus??
We actually live in Bizarro World, so this is entirely logical.
Launched by France's Minister of Industrial Renewal Arnaud Montebourg
This is like an announcement of a Stalin-era 5-year plan then?
The original report also notes that French government subsidies are on the table
This is France. They are under the table!
That roadmap also includes commitments by large OEMs to sponsor startups
Where will the money be coming from? France is dead broke. Although with Monsieur Draghi at the ECB, print is cheap. Of course.
Another by Bob Coecke to reference, El Reg: Quantum Picturalism
The quantum mechanical formalism doesn't support our intuition, nor does it elucidate the key concepts that govern the behaviour of the entities that are subject to the laws of quantum physics. The arrays of complex numbers are kin to the arrays of 0s and 1s of the early days of computer programming practice. In this review we present steps towards a diagrammatic `high-level' alternative for the Hilbert space formalism, one which appeals to our intuition. ... The underlying mathematical foundation of this high-level diagrammatic formalism relies on so-called monoidal categories, a product of a fairly recent development in mathematics. These monoidal categories do not only provide a natural foundation for physical theories, but also for proof theory, logic, programming languages, biology, cooking, ... The challenge is to discover the necessary additional pieces of structure that allow us to predict genuine quantum phenomena.
1) This is why there is Endless Discussion (tm)
2) These machines are not "the" general purpose quantum computer where you set the hamiltonian and let the analog system run for a time; they do "quantum annealing" which is a more restricted approach (gradient descent optimization like)
You still would have to give it 0 degrees of freedom.
(And that would be unamerican)
But that's the well-known AcmeBlack .... and thus I smell a patent war brewing with VantaBlack.
This is getting interesting!

The feel when you couldn't even attempt this in Yurop without getting a anticapitalistic smackdown. And a strike.
"Here may be found the last words of Joseph of Arimathea: He who is radiation-resistant and has a full bottle of oxygen may find the Holy Grail in the Vastness of Spaaaacceeeehhh..."'
My God, it's full of wildcards.
But they are being used incorrectly.
Did you mean "AAAAAnthrax"?
Let's just have SP(A+)CE, m'kay?
I see you are a lumberjack and you are all right!
said he was baffled by the government's insistence that there is an emergency requirement to bring in new legislation before MPs break for the summer
Could be they are expecting a few Iraqi Fried Chicken coming home to roost. Could also be another risk of "economic uheavals" in heat of august.
ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT CHINESE RESTAURANT LEVELS OF DATA GLUTTONY!
In emails, the conspirators revealed they have previously targeted Tibetan democracy and independence movements but had shifted crosshairs to military technology.
From soft to hard target. Excellent!
The bill surprised many by quickly securing cross-party support prior to its publication last Thursday
Of course. Everyone was busy reserving their "well-deserved" vacation while the world burns, so pressing the YES button is done with the same haste shown when super urgent toilet break is required.
It should be forbidden to pass laws 1 month before the "recess".
In Independence Day, 2014, old fart Napolitano had this to say:
In one week, the Supreme Court told ... the president that he cannot wait until Saturday morning, when the Senate is not in session, to appoint high-level officials whose jobs require Senate confirmation, and then claim that they do not require Senate confirmation because the Senate was in recess.
These nasty tricks are as numerous as tax evasion attempts, but far more harmful.
"watch over its arsenal of nukes"
In the same way as a car manufacturer "watches over its supply of cars". Only in this case, the cars are meant to do extreme drive-by shootings.
The current "nuclear posture" is all about keeping billions of the freshly printed money go to the nice people in the military-industrial complex:
The 2013 “Nuclear Employment Strategy” continued U.S. government reliance on a “nuclear triad” of ground-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles, and bomber-launched nuclear weapons. Although the need for one or more legs of this “triad” has been debated since the early 1990s, the 2013 report concluded that “retaining all three triad legs will best maintain strategic stability....
Another indication that the Obama administration is in no hurry to fulfill its promises about building a nuclear weapons-free world is found in its fiscal 2014 budget proposal to Congress. Here, amid sharp cuts for a broad variety of programs, there is a proposed 9 percent increase in federal funding for the Energy Department’s U.S. nuclear weapons activities, including upgrading nuclear warheads (like the B61 gravity bomb, slated for a $10 billion makeover) and modernizing nuclear weapons production facilities.
In particular the B61 is is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate-pushed retardation. Well, maybe Obama has information about Chtulhu's upcoming awakening, who knows:
Obama’s B61 Life Extension Program proposes to spend over $11 billion over several years to keep the variable-yield bombs “operational” through 2025 (nuclear weapons have limited shelf lives). This includes a billion dollars to add new tail fins in order to raise the intelligence of the things, to convert them from ‘dumb bombs’ subject solely to gravity to ‘smart bombs’ that can be steered to their targets. The new tail fins also permit B61s to be carried by the F-35 stealth fighter, perhaps the single greatest Pentagon boondoggle of all time. Not only does the proposed modernization violate the promise of the 2010 NPR to avoid new capabilities, it lowers the ‘nuclear threshold’ by making the bombs more ‘usable.’ This is because the F-35 can (hypothetically) get closer to its target prior to detection and attempted interdiction, reducing the required yield of the more precise bomb, reducing the radioactive fallout of the explosion, and reducing the consequences of its use.
Why in the world do the US and NATO need a refurbished nuclear bomb first imagined by weapons designers at Los Alamos shortly after the Cuban Missile Crisis? They don’t, even by both parties own reckoning. There is no conceivable military use for the things today. NATO wrestled with its mission, its very reason for being, following the collapse of the Soviet threat in the early nineties. Rather than fold the tent, throw a party, and call it an era—as the peace movements of its member-states suggested—NATO expanded eastward, making new members of its former foes. The US ignored (often gleefully) the howling protests of successive Russian leaders who claimed NATO expansion violated an agreement between Boris Yeltsin and George H.W. Bush to keep the alliance where it was.
Here's our plucky adventurer from the James Clark Ross end of the telescope
If I didn't know better, I would say "shopped"!
"Why won't you stay ... a little bit longer?"
"Waterhouse was here"
No more outsourcing.
War of Independence! In SPAAACEE!!
Seriously, fuck you, groundhuggers.
So it's better to jerk off before the pharma sales rep visits?
I think I'll go sit outside now and await the black helicopter.
The correct attitude to take, citizen. Your reeducation will be relaxing.
Meanwhile, your tax money goes towards the payroall of the bloated hierarchy at the lower end of which is the guy that hit the "report" button.

Really, ancient spacecraft collides with Moon due to meddling scientists? And one of them is female?
More like this, please!!
Clearly the "Coyote" model.
Now we can win back Iraq, stabilize Syria, control Pakistan, pacify Afghanistan, blow up Yemen cowherdes, defeat Putin, crack down on Coloradan dope dealers, neuter China, squash Yemen, secure the border with Mexico, put down Venezuela, keep the Pacific the Matre Nostrum and be forever friends with Saudi Arabia, Israel, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and other nasty shitholes. Did I mention that we can bring justice to whistleblowers?
Downvotes? What terrorist dislikes the "Art of UNIX Programming"?
"It's really about misrepresenting human ingenuity and calling on the guns and badges of the state and allowing people to leech off that – it's been well recognized that the intellectual trades are the cancer of all of commerce"
Because "Intellectual Property" is not property. It's a landgrab and it's all about monopoly.
