No Faceplant, no problem!
And then there were the no-hopers.
"I have a very bad feeling about this."
"We've asked NBC Universal and GitHub for comment on this reported incident, but we haven't heard back from them."
Because NBC are already prodding their lawyers into (un)life.
Chris (Wing Commander) Roberts' latest offering "Star Citizen" goes multiplayer beta starting May 29th, and starts at $35 to jump in (choose a starship from $30 plus $5 "Arena Commander pass").
Star Citizen is a wholly crowdfunded MMO Space Sim with FPS capabilities (Current funding is approx $43.8million and counting).
Unlike Eve Online or Elite, you are not the ship, you are the pilot and can get up & walk around your ship.You can land on a planet, get out of your ship and go to the trading outpost, weapons boutique, ship dealership, police station or pub.
Arena Commander is a space sim within the main Star Citizen game.
If encryption can delay NSA access beyond the heat-death of the Universe, it should be just about enough.

No. Simon Cowell is killing music!
You may be cynical, but I won't say you're wrong.
This done by intent.
The idea is apparently to discourage inner-city motoring, rather than improve traffic flow & lower pollution.
That's right. I've been told that there are 3 options to give me VDSL (in order of likelyhood):-
1: A new cab in the exchange car park - so crap speeds due to my line being approx 900m long.
2: A new street cab (possibly even a pole-top one) - OK. Pole is across street so approx 20m.
3: FTTH - How much?
At least you have a cabinet to connect to.
My town has been "fibred up", but as I'm on an Exchange-only line, I can't get it for the forseeable future.
Maybe Apple are using double ROT-13?
All the town's cabinets (a couple of dozen I think) have been upgraded, but as I already stated, there is no street cabinet for me, I'm connected directly to the exchange.
I will indeed be migrating to Zen or similar once fibre gets to me. Samknows reckons FTTP here by Xmas.
"Then to top it all off youtube doesnt work in the evenings without either degrading to a jumble of coloured blocks or severe buffering if you try to set it to a sane resolution"
The best trick I've found to deal with this problem, is a freeware java app called JDownloader.
It monitors your clipboard & parses downloadable files, so all you have to do is open your youtube clip & copy the URL. JDownloader then wibbles through the page & offers to download the highest resolution version of the clip it can find.
I consider it to be the restoration of the "buffer all before playing" option that youtube removed a while back.
Another one here who got moved over from Be last month.
I'll be staying with Sky for a while as I'm on an "exchange-only" line (no cabinet for fibre gear - BT aren't allowed to put it in actual exchanges!). "Superfast Cymru" have assured me that they will be providing either a new cab or FTTP soon.
No new contract (meaning I can leave at 1 month's notice), using my own router (Billion 7800DXL) with Google's DNS server.
So far, no problems (touch wood!).
Apple receive patent for patenting things.
The houses on each block are numbered in the chronological order that they were built. The trick is to ask directions from the oldest person you can find.
This is why neighbourhood cop & postie are generally considered to be "jobs for life", as it takes that long to learn where everyone is.
It's also why shop adverts in Japanese mags always include a map.
> "Japan airport staff...", why not "Japanese airport staff..."?
"Japan airport staff" implies staff at a Japanese airport.
"Japanese airport staff" implies airport staff anywhere who are of Japanese origin.
Better overall to say "Staff at Japanese airport..."
"You have obviously never managed a helpdesk."
And for that I shall be eternally grateful.
Notes containing passcodes are supposed to be stuck to the bottom of ones keyboard!
"It'll all be OK in a year's time when the innovative geniuses at Apple patent NFC."
Not really. NFC requires specific hardware on the phone. Which rules out anything Apple flavoured.
Worse than that, these "trials" only seem to involve specific models of phones, rather than any phone with an NFC chip.
You may be able to get away with some kind of NFC sticker on your phone (or just stick an extra PAYG Oyster card in your phone case).
Once you passed 3 million points, the original version of Pacman would display its source code, but only on the left-hand side of the screen.
This made getting much further almost impossible.
Good point, but I would've titled your post "Should've gone to SpecSavers".
MSI's recently-announced GT60 laptops have a 15.6" 2880x1620 screen.
I expect Zuckerberg to order a bunch of these for his newly-acquired Oculus Rift headsets.
I see as many as 3 mumsnetters have read this thread.
If Mumsnet didn't try to get CallMeDave to legislate the net down to CBeebies-friendly levels instead of ACTUALLY SUPERVISING THEIR CHILDREN'S NET ACCESS, the script-kiddies probably wouldn't have targeted them.
Until the US pork machine got involved, the shuttle was intended to be air-launched from a manned mothership, in much the same way as Virgin Galactic are planning.
Hope that doesn't happen! ----->
Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you "Julius Ceasar on an Aldis Lamp".
"Dave: Will you do whatever your Permanent Secretary says?
Dave: You're hired!"
"Not required to" != "Prohibited from..."
Section 215 of the PATRIOT act (which is what is being ruled on here) expires June 1st.
Odds on it being extended no later than May 30th?
As an exchange-only subscriber, the "Superfast Cymru" BB project has assured me that they WILL be connecting EO lines in a timely manner.
They have described 3 ways to do this:-
1: Install new street or pole cabinet on my street
2: Install new street cabinet in exchange car park
I'd like 3, but my money is on 2
"So bringing artificial intelligence to the battlefield might be the best way to bring an end to conflicts...."
yeah, that turned out real well in "The Terminator", didn't it?

Where withholding passwords is a criminal offense.
You forgot the third option - sales are going down because current music is complete & utter Cowell (pronounced cr@p).
Bletchley Park sounds like the ideal place to be compulsory purchased to house the new Alan Turing Institute.
"Another reason to choose a phone from a company who refuses to pollute or downgrade their product at the instance of the phone operator."
No longer applies - even my "direct from Google" Nexus 5 came with an unwanted/unremovable HP printer driver app.
1: Locate scum who wrote malware
2: Arrest same
3: File murder charges
4: Everybody profits!
"Why is there a need to have the functionality to allow an identification beacon on a civil aircraft be switched off in flight?"
All the electrics are protected by circuit breakers on the flight deck. Sadly it's equally possible to use these to deactivate a functioning transponder as well as kick one back into life after a power spike.
It's obviously the first episode of Lost - from the outside!
It'd be ironic if a bank bought it.
