@Will - Significant?
If there is no significant risk, that means that there is no risk that is significant, i.e, in effect, no risk.
If the risk was significant, it would be a different matter.
World's first DSLR, yep.
Superb though it is in many ways, the Casio EX-F1 is not a DSLR. It can, however, record full motion video at 1200fps.......
Re Battery Life
I bought a Devo "wind-up" DAB/FM radio the other day, cos it was reduced from £90 to a more like what it's worth £35. It's mainly for FM and sometimes BBC 7 or 6 Music. If you switch from Radio 2 on FM to Radio 2 on DAB, the FM sounds better, without question.
The interesting thing though is that one minute of winding the charger handle gives an hour of FM listening, or 3-5 minutes on DAB. Quite a difference.
Re Need More Details
I quite agree that he should have been able to see a stationary car in the fast lane, and stop in time or swerve around it, like everybody else managed to do.
But it will be impossible to prove who sent the text unless he actually admits it. You say the style of text or the content of the message will prove who sent it. It may show who composed the text certainly, but not who was actually holding the phone, typing it in, and sending it. He could easily have been dictating the message to his wife or mother. So far at least, it's not illegal to actually talk to other passengers in the car.
The Last Time
So scientists are confident that the particle collider will not bring about the end of the world in a new big bang? I bet that's just what they before they switched the last one on. 14 billion years ago.
Not his fault?
If it's not his fault, then just whose fault is it then? Somebody else who forced him to
write the "No IT angle"? If that is so then I sympathise with him, but I doubt it's the case, so -
I'd say it was exactly his fault and no-one elses.
Hibernation and passwords -
Control Panel, Power Options, Advanced tab, unclick (or click, depending which you want) "Prompt for password when computer resumes from standby".......
Note the inverted commas/quotation marks
The name of the yacht was not given in the article but was Kaz II. The inverted commas imply that the yacht was not called the Marie/Mary Celeste but that it disappeared in a Marie Celeste-like manner.
