No, jake, no. Bad!
I pirate my porn, so am I a power user?
> This is all made possible because BT asked some nice farmers if the could dig a small trench...
No it's because of cross-subsidy.
Stop designing interfaces to the audio/video hardware that look like something coming out of a soldering shop that received mechanical dials and random analog hardware from a B-52 yard sale, glued it together and plastered made-up and trademarked logos everywhere on the resulting box. That kind of old-style hardware was designed not because it was kewl but because there was no other way.
DOING SO TODAY IS DUMB. IT'S CONFUSING! IT'S NEEDLESSLY COMPLICATED. IT'S FOR 15-YEAR OLDS!
It gets even worse when the flexibility of a computer-interface is added in at random points (Do you hear, Amarok designer? Yes, get rid of your shitty volume control button first, then get rid of the rest of your shit too.)
Nurse, my blood pressure is off the chart again.
What's wrong with gardening?
"Security theatre aside, wouldn't a bit of yellow tape strung across the entrance kinda indicate that this is not an entrance for unauthorised personnel?"
Pretty sure a sign saying
RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS - KEEP CLEAR !!!11!!
would be more effective these days.
" If you use drugs and there are pictures of you doing that and you apply for a job, you won't get hired."
I see "Foreign Policy" is luridly biggening this up like one of its customary Nukes From Iran Next Week stories, talking about how this enables the Chinaman to put logical bombs into our plane software.
Western systems are not only badly protected with managers unable to resist clicking on attachements, they do not have source code control and change management either.
"Me penetrate you a loooong time."
But what exactly are "Wikipedophiles"?
There should be a WIkipage for that phenomenon.
> the guy that owns most of soho
Why does he damage his own business through ill-repute though?
- Dated BY strippers (including crossdressing ones)
I don't see what's wrong with knowing a strip club?
Is that the Oracle or the Team Amurrica boat? I can't tell.
These days and the future is streaming / digital download.
As evidenced by the "maybe not always connected" XboxOne brouhaha.
Still, I might agree that it is USB stick.
Do people (over the age of 12) actually say things like crApple?
YES. Now go away or I will taunt you a second time!!!
It's good that tax dollars are being used to bust dodgy yoghurt off the interwebs.
Now. Can we get the dodgy addies by "Flower566 from Nigeria" off the dating sites, too?
Would SEO again!
After all, Bush Junior promised to feed them nuclear materials under the promise that it "wouldn't be used for military purposes", thus freeing up all the materials they already had for the military.
One really wants to know when the big one comes.
What kind of keyboard costs GBP 10?
The horror. The horror.
"If you sit by the river long enough, you will see the body of your enemy float by."
What kind of "pent up demand" is that though? More like karmic lust.
They must have changed something in the reality distortion field.
Clearly, MinLove/MinEcon CPUs as required in every worker's home set will NOT HAVE any security problems.
What's that? Not ok with that?
You are being vanned!
Just use it.
UTC is TAI with wallclock corrections.
Clock should use TAI. Computations should be in TAI. WTF is wrong with people.
> Surely we can easily predict when we need leap seconds, couldn't a non-connected machine be programmed to insert them at the right time?
Slowdown however depends on many random effects - tides, air pressure, random displacements of masses within the earth's interior, continental drift etc. So it's not particularly deterministic.
we're over austerity then
Remind me again when austerity occurred except in left-wingers' and NYT columnists' sloganeering?
As opposed to billions lying in off shore accounts doing nothing but waiting for a tax amnesty.
You really need to know the basic fact that that money is not "lying there". It's being used. Maybe to finance your job. It's just that someone has a claim on it.
And as long as the tax part hasn't been hoovered away, it's probably being used to produce stuff people want as opposed to stuff bureaucrats imagine people want (less the skim-off for bureaucrats' paycheck, of course)
Really, Lockheed Martin itself is another factor in the downfall of "western civilization" along with the cancer of liberal presidents and their caring gender-equality sidekicks. Does its F-35 even fly?
F*CK THEM ALL.
NANOTECHNOLOGHY from SPACE!
SCIENTISTS say "IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE A DIATOM"
Page 3: PROOF of QUASI-BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING by NON-HUMAN ENTITIES.
Page 4: Worried housewives ask: "Does SPACE OBAMA know about this?"
Page 5: Carrier Strike Group DISPATCHED to LOW EARTH ORBIT: KERRY announces PROTECTION of FREEDOM against all SPACE DIATOMS. "This will not stand. Oh! The inhumanity!!".
PUTIN OUTED AS SPACE MONSTER SUPPORTER ON PAGE 12!! Jon Stewart: "Only elderly fat housewives root for DIATOMS and PUTIN. FAIL!"
Astronauts always shower down while still in the airlock, you know.
You can't get certified against 27002 as it's just a collection of "best practices", not requirements (as is 27001)
You mean "ISO 27001" (Requirements for the Information Security Management System).
There is only one way to save our city:
Neo The Tea Party
And evidently Belgium.
Nazi flemish speakers, dependent and destitute Walloons, crumbling infrastructure, nepotism that would make the MIC blush, a large and unfriendly Muslim population, high taxes, mafiosi everywhere, weird killing sprees, dangerous child molesters, a dysfunctional government, rumors of violent secession soon, and danish pastry.
They got it all.
But as a US citizen, you should cherish the fact there will be a trunk line linking you not only to friendly people in Virginia, but also to friendly people abroad.

You phone is in the laundry.
Under Jobs, your Cult Conviction wouldn't have been so lackadaisical
Who can we bomb?
Arr. Do you reckon it be fun and dances waiting a long time on a burning galleon? Even if he put on the course for Davy Jones' locker himself.
Everyone who invested in Nokia made out with a lot of money because they were all investing when it was at rock bottom.
Implying it's not still at rock bottom (oh look a dead cat bounce). Now that they burned the mobile division down and will sell it, it's not going up quickly either.
Lawsuits are gonna fly. I can feel it.
Arrrrr! Matey Zuck is taking the french way off this brigantine. Why enliven his departure with the mention of bung hole wenches and hornpipe players?
Ewe online, I reckon.
The last thing you see is the picture of a white fluffy cat while you download your own doom!
> How much in the world of medicine has its roots in military R&D do you think?
Deduct the cost of actual wars, and I would guess about minus 3-4 trillion USD.
NEVER! These are HUGE BUGS that warrant a full VERSION INCREASE!
