Re: Handy Tip
If you have dual boot and need to install Windows you need to install to a separate drive which is not your normal boot drive (unless you don't mind re-installing your bootloader)
Not necessary. Just install Windows _first_, then use your Linux LiveCD to resize/repartition the drive & then install.
They've found the best way to kickstart manned exploration missions...
I feel a great disturbance in The Force...
As if "Jar Jar - the Musical" was coming soon.
That would be "Contempt of Court"
Which translates as:-
Go to jail.
Go directly to jail.
Do not pass go.
Do not collect $200.
Stay there until the judge decides you're sorry.

The real problem with cloud computing...
I have a bad feeling about this.
Latest Android may be secure
But UK carriers will wait 6-9 months before passing it along, if they ever do at all.
Final release is today...
But the day ain't over yet!
"Because we say so" isn't good enough.
(with fingers in ears) LALALALALALALALA! We're not listening to you!
Re: Last paragraph of story
Inq are reporting that Apple HAS now licensed the Swiss Rail clock.
Re: Aliens done it.
It's not alien, it's Atlantean!
TPB /is/ time-shifting
Just not in the direction the MAFIAA wanted.
Surely safer to put down inductive charging loops next time the roads are resurfaced.

So, just outside the Cardynge Limit then?

Re: What the Foreman said...
"Is that justice?"
As I understand things, taking a look for the skycrane is one of the mission objectives.
Why HDD sales _really_ fell.
Lower prices == more unit sales == more profiits
We've all been waiting for prices to drop since the flood happened.
Locals are building a Sunbeam
Because they expect a Boskonian attack.
Disney to file lawsuit in 3...2...1...
Noone wins but the lawyers!
"LCD TV shipments slip for FIRST TIME EVER"
Because world+dog already has one (or more).
Whilst at my first ever job in 1983, working for the local Acorn dealership, I was involved in coding a system that did EXACTLY this using the BBC Micro and the BLISS symbol library for a local special school.

Re: Blame the US
Never mind the pixels, feel the lumens.
A video projector that only works in coal mine at midnight worse than useless
It's a good job the USPTO wasn't this stupid 100 years ago...
If it were, Edison would have been able to patent "Using electricity to power a device".
I had a 3010, and still have a RiscPC StrongARM - which still runs!
Christian, Acorns before the RiscPC had to share video memory with program memory, all 0.5 to 4MB of it.
The RiscPC was available with an optional 1 or 2 MB VRAM stick.
Note that those memory amounts are MEGABYTES not GIGABYTES. ISTR paying over 100ukp to upgrade my A3010 to 2MB.

EU vows to make asylum-seeker database 'more efficient'
By leaving it on the bus?
Original Arcade game protip
5000 bonus points for NOT shooting whilst flying down the trench.
I believe this to be a good thing...
When I watched kid's BBC (back before the dawn of time), I was always really annoyed when it got pre-empted for the budget, tennis, snooker or pro-celebrity tiddleywinks.
Dedicated channels like CBBC/CBeebies will not see this.
Re: It's all so depressing...
There _was_ a supersonic Harrier in development, until the Gubmint of the day canned it in 1965 to buy F4 Phantoms.
Note for GCHQ:-
Expect large uptick in highly encrypted email.
Time to put an end to these "Victorian Sensibilities"...
After all, the old battleaxe has been gone for over a century now!
I take it the polls closed
Before anyone saw "Battleship"?
I thought it was called "The War Against Terror"?
At least that's what I've thought of every politician since...
Yes (Prime) Minister was never a sitcom...
It was a Docu-Drama with a Gubmint-imposed laugh track to make us think it was fictional!
Do what I'd do...
Tell them you don't have a Farceberk profile.
(Except I wouldn't be lying)
As any fule no
It's _tachyons_ you need for FTL & time travel!
What should happen next...
Sir Ian McKellen should insist on the premiere being held in Southampton, with the after-party held at the establishment in question.
(Y'know - just to rub the lawyers noses in it).
Satnav blindness is everywhere.
One end of the road where I work is closed for a couple of weeks whilst the roundabout there is enlarged as part of improving access onto the industrial estate.
Sat-tards are driving past ALL SIX "Road closed ahead" signs and not turning round until they've found the big hole in the road at the very end.
Remember when Shakespeare said "First, kill the lawyers"?
Maybe he meant UI designers, because this makes Ubuntu Unity & Gnome Shell look well thought out!
I for one, welcome our new alcohol-fueled robotic overlord!
'The full harm to Apple cannot be calculated'
Divide by zero error?
Title goes where?
"mass-produced, lowest common denominator, well, shit being pushed out by "artists" every day"
Or "Complete & utter Cowell" as I like to call it.
EML2 has other advantages
Like using the entire mass of the Moon to screen out Earth-generated radio & TV signals.
This would however also require a comms satellite in L4 or L5 to talk to the base.
You forgot 8
