There's a slim chance I might have the option of fibre by then.
Re: Signed up for Force9 (now Plusnet) with my 9600 modem
For the last few years Plusnet has been owned by BT. (That's why I left them).

Slashdot has more - TOR hacked by FBI
Re: Maybe The Dr is going full circle
If they were really going full circle, then the next Doctor would logically be David Bradley, who is playing William Hartnell in the Dr Who: Origins special "An Adventure in Space and Time" that the Beeb are putting out.
I'm Brian, and so's my wife!
Re: but WHO will rid us of terrible trolls?
I think we'll have to do it ourselves at the next election.
(Needs V for Vendetta icon)
Remember, this is only the NSA's _public_ budget threatened with cuts.
Their "Black Budget"* will increase by 2x any cuts to compensate.
* Black Budget - Concealed funding ($20,000 for a toilet seat , etc)
Re: Well my English cousins...
Unfortunately, any such protest will receive absolutely zero coverage in the regular press,
as the f***w*ts who own it all are 100% behind the ban in order to promote sales of their old-fashioned skin mags.
As any fule no...
'twas the Red Moon that destroyed life on Mars.
Re: "most likely be configured to perform boring, tricky tasks like parking"
Current models only work the steering, the driver still has to apply throttle & brake.
Volvo have recently shown off a car which will drop the humans off at the entrance to a multi-storey car park, then drive in and find itself an empty space.
How the driver finds or summons his car back to take him home was not revealed.
Counting the days...
Until we can tell Cameron to "Default Off".
What's that I smell?
Something a lot like astroturf
Maybe that's why...
The inquiry into GCHQ's PRISM-alike interweb snarfing program is being held in secret?
Because they don't want the great unwashed knowing that it they p*ssed science only knows how many billions on yet another broken system!
Re: It's the wrong searchj
The nearest NutriMatic machine is at Barnard's Star
Why re-invent the wheel? They could just sign up as a BOINC project - http://boinc.berkeley.edu/
Cue the conspiracy theorists:-
Blaming the Bermuda Triangle, Somali Pirates, or even Apple / Microsoft SEAL teams in 3...2...1...
Re: V/MC are a US duopoly
Well, there is Amex, but not even NASA accept that anymore.
They can have my Facebook password
Pity I don't have an account to go with it!
Re: Wonder how
Not needed if you don't use the USB hub on the monitor.
Laptop users, however may have a problem doing that.
Simple (cheaper) solution?
Pay some school leavers minimum wage to rip all the tapes into one or more Petaboxes.
Looks like he means "A RasPi in every lunchbox!" rather than lessons in driving MS Office.
Re: So many choices
Carlyle is caught up in "Once Upon a Time" for the foreseeable future, and Siddig is involved with "Da Vinci's Demons" - both of which have been renewed for next year.
Even simpler answer...
U banned from Interwebs until they leave home!
Won't somebody think of the adults?
Title says it all.
Re: "...treats such as peanut butter..."
How else will they fix air leaks from micrometeorite damage?
"Timely Defense" is needed...
... to stop trolls sitting on the patent waiting for a big payday.
If they don't jump the first time there is infringement, the patent becomes public domain.
<-- Trollface for obvious reasons.
Re: Who else has left already?
Would love to follow you, but "Infinity" is how long I'll have to wait before fibre is installed in my town.
How to be a Politician...
1: Promise everything
2: Deliver nothing
3: Blame other parties
Re: Dumb Telly?
The "Evolution Kit" is a smartphone-sized box that clips into a socket on the back of the TV.
Re: Surely T&Cs cover this ?
Of course, this assumes the candidate _has_ accounts with said marketing ^H^H^H social networking orgs.
I don't, so I would obviously not get the job because I won't hand over passwords to said non-existent accounts.
Skip over this bit, will you?
Re: I always wondered how long it was going to take...
To summarize:- Tor is anti-Gubmint.
So you didn't meet this guy then?
I smell rolled-up trouser legs & funny handshakes (with manilla envelopes)
Anonymous should leave the Norks alone...
... and take down the world's real #1 evil - Telemarketers and their robo-dialing henchbots.
MI5 & GCHQ?
Only there to threaten the others into installing back doors in their systems for "official" use only.
"Should custom Android keyboards even be allowed?"
I find that with a rooted Xoom 1 running JB 4.2.2, a custom keyboard like (genuine) Swiftkey is NECESSARY!
This is because the stock keyboard closes itself after EVERY keypress.
Ruling overturned by SCOTUS in 3...2...1...
Because "Government of the People, by the Priveliged, for the Corporate."
"Starfleet commanders used portable flip-phone style transceivers."
Which is where the designers of the first flip-phone, the Motorola StarTAC say they got their inspiration.
PS: ALL Starfleet personnel used communicators, not just Commanders & above.
Follow the Funding...
I suspect it will lead to the Vegetarian Society.

Good news everyone!
Musk tweeted this at 1640UTC:-
"Solar array deployment successful"

Re: Most excellent
70 limit came in in 1965 after Carroll Shelby was reported to reach 198mph on the M1.
Before then, the white circle with a black diagonal line meant "End of Speed Limit".
Re: @ Anonymous IV
Why not? They always have before.
Windows ME & Vista spring readily to mind.
<- Tux, because I left the sinking ship many years ago.
Pics of peripherals
But none of actual console it seems.
Re: What a surprise
Actually, MS certification requirements state that the Secure Boot off-switch is required on x86 devices and PROHIBITED on ARM devices (like the Surface).
Jacket & Jeans?
Gotta be Jeremy Clarkson.
