Is Steve Jobs going to appear in hologramatic 3d and show the way for apple to go? Just like Hari Seldon and the Seldon Plan?
So where does one buy such a beast?
Im sure Mr Clarkson will step forward and answer a charge of threatening behaviour etc if the victims are willing to step forward and identify themselves.
Proceeds of crime
I would imagine now that there is this guilty verdict that the CPS will be pushing for a Proceeds of Crime ruling too - in essense they have to pay the £3m back or face a lot longer in jail. It is an effective death sentence - who can make £3m when they have had all their capital confiscated? So in all likely hood this chap will end up doing twice the sentence, he will get released and then for the rest of his life his earnings will be docked.
Crime really doesnt pay now a days. Even if you get away from the crime - you may well have to prove where those earnings came from 15 years down the line.
The only threat is if you resist.
It is a lie! He is not John McAfee.
I AM JOHN MCAFEE!
(Lets try the Spartacus defence now.)
We just dont need new machines to run web browsers, Im typing this on a 5 year old machine. Its the longest I have ever kept a machine, I really dont need anything quicker.
I am looking at getting a new machine next year, as this one can only take 4gb of RAM however I said the same last year....it just keeps running and runs everything I need it to!
My thoughts exactly, how does he?
"Corporation tax should be paid, at a lower rate, on turnover, instead of profit. That way, all those ridiculous accounting techniques disappear."
And what rate of tax do you think is fair? 5%? 10%?
My profit margin on nigh on 1m turnover is around 8%. Yes, thats right - every million I turn over I 'earn' £80k.
Taxing turnover is not progressive and will ruin the economy.
I am however in favour or rounding up all accountants and doing a 'Clarkson' - even the good ones deserve it...
Because its Plextor....
From what I remember of Plextor (from the era of CD Rewriters) was that they made bloody good kit. I could of course be wrong now a days, but I would be tempted to pay a premium for quality.
I think I will just stick to storing invoices for 7 years - like HMRC request. I see no legal obligation to store emails or other communication for such a long period, and if its not here then I simply cannot hand it over can I?
Such a shame...
Is this the ad...
Is this the ad with Branson dressed up as a Kung Fu master? If so, wouldnt people be too busy laughing to actually notice the details?
I know of one chap round here (Rugby player too) who was offered his money back and begged not to come again. He even offered to buy two all you can eat buffet meals just for himself, and they still wouldnt let him continue!
And they want their laws back.
As with most things, its not really possible to write a decent application unless you know how the organisation works. Every bit of hire software I look at just isnt right, so I'll end up writing my own :-(
I know someone who works in IT who actually bought Facebook shares. No, really!
Im a firm believer that the more pointless paperwork one has to do, the more right wing one becomes.
Time to short ATI and buy Nvidia then, gotta love the simplicity of trading on those two companies :p
However, they were given the option of moving and Im sure some sensible relocation packages were also offered. So what Mr Jones has essentially done is forced the vast majority of the staff to quit without redundancy pay. Smart chap, if albeit a bit evil.
against the grain
I know this is against the grain and somewhat controversal, however what would have happened if he had shouted out his tweet in the airport rather than broadcasting it via twitter?
I personally think that people should be held accountable for what they say on the web. Just because its faceless doesnt mean anything goes.
Have you guys read the website? Watched the video's? Or researched this at all? I have, I think it could be plausible that this may work. Watch the video available on the E-Cat site, it is quite informative.
Granted, I'll admit that Andre Rossi is a convicted criminal and has done fraud before... ;-)
I think the more pertinant (fuck off grammar nazi's!) question regards the engine mounts, are they the same and in the same position as other nice engines that VW make. Such as the 1.8 turbo petrol engine they produce?
That could be interesting :-)
Telecom FM Dataroute ftw
I had a good look about last year and found the Telecom FM Dataroute to be the best for my needs, the fact that it will ping a server and auto reconnect if needed really sold it to me. Coupled with an 88cm aerial I have never been without signal.
I really cant see this making money.
Contiuum Hosting for me.
I have only ever used http://www.contiuum-hosting.co.uk and I've got to say its very rare I've ever had a problem, and on the occasions I have had issues I've just spoken to Laze on IRC and its been sorted or it is already in the process of being sorted.
I should probably admit that I've known the chap for a long time so I am biased, but the uptime talks for its self :-)
Hopefully they will hook up a 6kva diesel generator in and hook it up to a 200 amp fast charger, inverter and a nice big lion baterry bank. The 'electric' car revolution wont be won by burning anything other than diesel intially - a 6kva generator is used around about 1.5 litres of diesel an hour (charging at 200 amps, can be fine tuned to much less at less amps) using some clever software and fine tuning it would be possible to use the batterys/capacitors to provide instant peak load and start/stop the generator to provide both performance and efficiency.
"Tessel's 800 bucks out of pocket as a result of this exercise in democracy. He sighed: "That's what happens when an idiot does something stupid."
I like this chap, I'd vote for him!
The data speaks for its self, man made global warming has occured.
Self admitted End of Timer here
I admit to being a End of Times person. I do agree however that if the human race can extract its self out of any mess. Providing that the leadership and co-operation is there. However, as the ship is sinking there tends not to be too much leadership and co-operation. Rather the situation tends to be squabbling and selfishness.
I however shall be perfectly alright on my boat with solar panels, a large battery bank (2640AH), a generator and my log burner. Best bit is, if the heavens open and the world is flooded (a la Noah's ark) I shall be perfectly sound.... Providing the waves are no bigger than one foot....ahem....
He committed a crime. I fail to see how his lately diagnosed Aspergers makes it any less of a crime. Or indeed why he should not be be extradited to the US (whom we have an extradition treaty with).
I further fail to see how this has been dragged out over 9 years.
Some could say that this is just repeating 100 year old experiments. However Tesla was on to something and it bugged him until the day he died.
It is pretty fucking simple really. If you do not want to be sitting in the dark in 5 years time blubbing about being cold. Then we need to build more nuclear power stations five years ago.
Ah, shit - oh well I'll be alright on my boat with my solar panels and log burner.
Fax Machines work and are easy and simple. If I need an insurance cert or reference from a customer it is far easier for them to fax it than it is for me to logon to my email, find the file, open the PDF and then print it.
Yes, it would be possible to write a script that prints any attachment sent to firstname.lastname@example.org however, why bother? When a fax machine and a decent VOIP set up is just as cheap and idiot proof. And it is being idiot proof that is the real winner for fax.
