Chip n Pin
Why doesn't the rest of the world do this instead?
Win 8 is great!
Pinball FX2 for TIFKAM.
That is all.
Re: Computer Models!
Genuine answer. Which can guarantee to keep the lights on, Nuclear or Solar and Wind power? Ok, so its a question.
To Whom It May Concern
I've just got back. No staying the night/weekend. Which is good. No bruises/cuts/scratches...
Disappointed Ashley didn't win. But check this out...
Relax beast (not my real name obviously), sit back make yourself comfortable...
Do you like this? Her top comes off...
Waiting for the I'm a Celeb result...
Never mind that...
Her own Bushtucker trial commenced... Imagine I'm Ashley she says... cool
Bushtucker trial succesful! 1 star!
Cup of tea.
Kiss then home.
Jobs a good 'un!
I was particularly unimpressed by the the vid-cast or whatever you want to call it. Endless, boring drives down crappy A-roads. AND then a still can of a wing mirror whilst the *crack* el Reg team went off in some dingy or whatever, leaving the cam behind! If it wasn't for the stimulating chat then I would have chewed my own leg off. Surely a good reason to have an el Reg chat page... thanx Corrine, VinceH and many others. BTW I've not been round to see her yet... Will post here later! x
Recently built one with an Ivy Bridge i5 with HD4000 graphics. Thought it would be somewhat *less* painful using the Intel gfx. What a mistake. Refusing to boot, bizzare UEFI nonsense going on. Sleep didn't work at all.
Popped in a fairly old Nvidia card and the bloody thing just worked *perfectly* and with obviously more performance.
Bloody Intel. Where can I claim 48 hrs of my life back?
I just don't know where to start...
Fook it, you are a nutter and you are wrong.
There, nuff said.
Re: Uh oh
Upvote for patent event horizon, spot on!
I'll sink a few for Neil tonight
Saw this bad news after being out on a job to fix some lady's WiFi woes and bringing up the BBC news site to confirm all was fixed... I was quite upset tbh and the lady seemed to recognise the passing a true pioneer too...
RIP Neil Armstrong, you are my hero and certainly were made of The Right Stuff.
Does anyone else remember a Discovery Channel series featuring Neil back in the day when he'd just jump into any plane and then do all sorts of mental (and it looked, v. dangerous) stuff in it??? What a guy!
All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
May the Angels of God forgive me
In my enlightened state I felt a presence from 3ns in the future... She told me to stop messing around with Rubidium atoms and such and concentrate with the matter in hand. She told me the winning lottery numbers for Friday. Also she said Man U would win the league...
Wow, it was all a dream... or was it?
Re: I'm sick an tired of all these mofo FTL claims on this mofo planet (gunshot)
Calm down dear...
Do they have a value ON the Bloch sphere or within it as mixed states? I think it is essential that such states are within the Bloch sphere to enable quantum computers to function... But hey what do I know?? Readers please educate me on the righteous path of quantum computing (if it is possible at all(how do you get the data out?))
PS. I don't know what I'm talking about
Veet For Men
Am still laughing, and have ordered 4 tubes... watch this space...
Anyways up, shirley this is the old phase velocity vs group velocity phenomena, you can't send any info via this route. The statistics get in the way, drowning out your superluminal 'signal' in noise till it turns to mush... Which leads me back to the first thing I mentioned. How nice ;)
Oh and have a look at this, could do with some of these to help with the Veet AND its on-topic!
You misunderstand the research. Check it out on physorg.com, which is where most science stuff on el Reg is regurgitated from anyway... I'll leave that compliant for another time. Don't bother reading their forum/comments though... There they be dragons. and trolls. and nuthatches. Especially nuthatches.
Re: LOHAN Strut
This touches on what I'm worried about... at the altitude of launch will the fins of the rocket be aerodynamically effective anyway? You'd certainly have to make them much bigger than would be needed at sea-level.
Yeah, it is actually...
You see, the whopping extra £5 or so the tax payer could choose to pay for a UK built version goes towards:-
a) UK taxes on imported components.
b) Paying for it to built by a UK company which pays UK taxes.
c) Built by UK workers who pay UK taxes.
d) Being proud to be British.
Also, I'm sure most people in the here would buy a UK version. You never know, you may get a fair few overseas sales too. Its a win all-round IMHO. Lets just have the choice.
You sir are a buffoon.
Offer UK manufactured versions?
Just an idea... After the initial manufacturing run, why not offer the A+B versions for sale as UKA+UKB also? Manufactured in the UK, would cost more (~£5?) but you would have the choice to buy British if you wanted and have your Pi with 'Designed and Built in the UK" on the PCB. Shirley any purchases for UK schools etc would go for one of these and would also serve to highlight the cost differences which could then be discussed and brought to the attention of the Govt. Would be interesting to see what difference the price would make to the demand of the UK and non-UK versions. Waiting for my RasPi model UKB
@Def's resource loader/manager"The resource loader/manager I wrote for <last game I worked on> was capable of pulling data off the hard drive far quicker than the game systems that requested it could process it." Do you want a medal for that? Game system: Can you load this resource with tag/filename/whatever x to this address. Def: Hmmm, look and see if x is resident. Yes, it is, its here... No, its not resident, ask Windows/OSX/ios/Xbox/PS3/whatever to load it to said address, maintain a simple data structure associating x with said address. Return the address. Provide simple API call to unload a resource. Perhaps if you are so good, you'd have done something about reducing the post-load processing demands needed rather than claiming your coding Nobel prize on how fast your loader was when in fact it was the os that was fast?
The RasPi is fantastic from so many angles, what I hope to see is a big community built around this, availability in schools and some bright spark to get this or compatible version into a *phone*
If that happened, imagine how many schoolkids would suddenly become very, very interested... and they would learn so much about programming for next to nothing, not have to pay ££ for tools/hw and they'd be able to show off to their mates. Viva la revolution!
Like Samsung supplying them with lcd panels, flash n stuff. Well Apple best watch out, Samsung have a huge grip on lcd supply now after getting Sony's side of the biz, I wonder if Apple might find a little increase in the prices they pay to cover Samsung against Apples attempted patent borging of everyone else?
@ Kharkov ...someone who understands. Skylon will be off into orbit with its 12,000 Kg payload whilst this monstrosity is trying to get to 10,000m. Can this bring anything back from orbit? Can it send people up? What are its abort profiles? What we really need is reusable SSTO, not this shite. I thank you.
Why doesn't Mr Allen wise up and invest in Reaction Engine's Skylon and SABRE tech??? Seems much better than this white elephant...
Smart Meters, I'm so scared...
You have a problem with one, then either hit it with a big hammer and join the connections with rubber gloves or put a Faraday cage around it and say its for protection from the neighbours WiFi. Of course tell them a burglar did it or something... what can they do, spesh after they won't have someone round for 5 years to see it at least... move house in the meantime... worked every time for me
Go take the meds...
Go take a pill, what the f*** was that all about?!? Jesus, I won't even try to argue with you.... Merry Christmas
must be an EPIC FAIL
I have to agree with various ACs about the seperation 'anomaly'
The whole 'ting bent in two at booster burnout and 'lo and behold, seconds after all video coverage was lost... I had a friend watching this and he commented... ahhh, we are now seeing pre-recorded footage... They even had to go thru the sick-making ceremony of awarding plaques etc afterwards.
EPIC FAIL I tells ya
Not running on Apple HW
hah hah hah... you've not tried hard enough!
I posted elsewhere... dl your Win7 and spend a few hours getting osx to boot
Win 7 is good and boots faster than Osx, but you'll never ever leave osx once you get it sorted...
(God do peeps actually pay for os's except at work?)
I'm a freetard and double booted my pc with osx and win7... guess what? I don't go into win7 EVER! Osx is really quite nice... I never thought I would say as much, being a windows man, but there ya go... All freetards out there, spend a few hours getting osx to run on your pc... you'll be happy! And your gf will be very impressed!
I've had to phone the police on several occasions due to idiots riding their mini-bikes, sometimes half a dozen of them along the pavements where I live with mums with prams, toddlers etc... Not an emergency, although alarming! Won't phone 999 (or 112 whatever) cos you get in deep shit, so tried to phone the local cop-shop after googling for number. Guess what? Its not open at weekends or after 5pm! I gave up, and the scrotes get away scot free...
Thought about ringing Crimestoppers, but whats that number? I was only trying to help out... you should be able to ring 999 for any shit and not expect a visit by the dibble why you rang,,, /rant
Whoops, I posted something similar to the WoW article, but maybe this is the best place for it...
Hallelujah by The Happy Mondays c. 1989 is the definitive version... yes, not the same song, but it is much better, don't you know...
@ Sarah Bee.. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, we're here to pull yer...
Did a *bit* of research
And found that the Andy Buckley version is rubbish...
I still maintain the Happy Mondays version is the one you want to hear with Grandma on Xmas day.
Still, this is better with your loved(ex) ones
Never mind this WoW nonsense, have you heard the shite about Hallelujah the song in the charts at the mo? What bollox... The Happy Mondays did the definitive version in 1989...
"Hallelujah, hallelujah, we're gonna pull ya..."
...pulls on my flares and baggy top...
Paris... well if she'd been legal in '89 I'd have pulled her
re: My mum died last night
So did mine... but I fail to understand you. Wanker... I'd like to meet you on the street dude... Oh, if you are wondering, Its Moss Side MoFo... Bring it on
If anyone has problems with throttling and/or download caps, why not change the Sky's Max package? No limits, no throttling, no Phorm.
It may of course change in the future, if so I'll drop them like a hot potato(e). Given a plausible alternative...
In the meantime I can download your fav movies (in HD) in half the time in takes to watch them...
Wish I was there...
I wouldn't think for a second to help this elderly gent take down these scum... If i had to be the first person however to take them on then I'd think again, that's why he's so brave! This guy deserves his Rolex and a medal from then Queen IMHO. Good on you John!
FFS what an EPIC FAIL!
I've listened to a few random threads on here and I have now chewed my own leg off in desperation... Who cares?!? At least you can speed-read crap blogs... God this is such a bad idea...
