I'm in SG at the moment and it seems quite good, It's swings and roundabouts compared to LN. Went to HK the other week and it was very enclosed compared to SG.
Might I be the first to say I for one hope similar research has been done for Copper Nanotubes. In fact I will do a googlefor hot CuNT right now to check.
Mine's the coat with an awkward bulge.
I for one would like to welcome 2015 when the PC which is capable of playing the game with all the settings and a decent screen res is released.
That was my memory of the much loved older Sim Cities anyway :)
They were already there
Well certainly with products, I've got a Singtel hi! card.

Mine's the coat not allowed to stop in any South American port ;)
if only you could have crowbarred "and Alastair" into the subheading?
Based on this logic, Google should introduce a pay per search feature for French customers.
Bonjour, voulez-vous faire un search? C'est 0,50€.
Perhaps Alcatel can sue oriental companies for making cheaper electronics than it?
Can we get a Beaker from the Muppets icon? I think a giant meep sounds appropriate for this kind of story.
I've had about 5 or 6 outages in the last yr with VM. Fortunately they always refund customers, unprompted, for loss of service. Oh wait...
My fave ISP is Be, never had any issues in 5 yrs with them just my chuffing BT line or feckless BT engineers at the exchange pulling my card out instead of someone else's.
It's worth watching the last 25 mins of that BBC programme Marcus du Satoy did about this in the last month or so.
This second expt has ruled out one of the possible causes. But who knows about whether the earth's density is accurately known enough along this path for that not to cause some GR fluctuations or something else that clearly isn't obvious.
Anyway, the the du Satoy programme said, if this is right then a prior experiment which recorded neutrinos and light arriving at the same time from a supernova must have some massive error or effect as I think it would have meant the neutrinos should have arrived 25yrs before the light.
I've supported those infernal things since 2003 and the only predictable thing about them is that they break, often and weirdly.
The below was on Slashdot and I think it should have made the article...
The lawyer representing the company, Matthew McAndrews, seems to
imply that the company believes the patents cover everyone who has a home
Wi-Fi setup, but they don't plan to go after such folks right now, for
No, but in some areas of physics, 50% can be a great margin of error, some things have margins of error which are orders of magnitude.
There is a similar problem in particle physics, from what I remember from Uni 11 yrs ago, whereby detectors measure energy and thus the velocity and mass have to be intelligently guessed.
What a waste of time the ASA are
I wonder what they would have said if they said the phone was unlimitedly cheap and had an asterisk to a fair use price.
How much does Nigel get paid again?
Cigars and fancy robot butlers?
Mine's the smoking jacket in the billiards room please e-Jeeves.
That's his Google+ a/c stuffed then...
Mine's the coat with the hastily scribbled over name badge on it
I <3 agencies
"both of which told the Reg they could not comment as UBS was one of their biggest clients"
So they're saying they would comment if it was about a small client?
Twice, and that was just for breakfast
Eat this, because I clearly did :)
I understand Lewisham also piloted an extension to this policy recently
Love clean shops
Whereby proactive, youthful and vigorous members of the community helped tidy shop innards of cluttering goods.
Mine's the coat with the hood and a 56" plasma in the pocket.
Does it include some wet wipes for your USB ports...
I hope my company includes this on the USB lockdown policy...
When the memory stick loses all your data, I guess it's fucked you over twice...
Mine's the coat with the phone set to vibrate in the pocket
Given all the brouhaha
I would think that major newspapers be forced to adopt an email archiving policy akin to that which banks are forced to.
In anticipation of this I will be buying shares in Autonomy :)
Also is Private Eye going to be the only place to point out the big alarm bell of Vaz being on this panel. Perhaps Jeffrey Archer can go on the next perjury review committee?
Mine's the coat with the bulging brown envelopes in it.
Many thanks chaps. Mrs G got a bit sick of having to do the whole logout thing for the family pics to be backed up to the network, so this is great news.
Upvoted you all.
A question if anyone would be so kind?
Does encrypting your disk (not just home) still make time machine a bit rubbish, in that it becomes an all or nothing restore feature and not the dip in saviour it is with unencrypted partitions?
Does Linux have to catch up?
I *thought* that this ASLR was done by doing a prelink -afmR and there was also some kernel option ticked which did some similar stuff?
plain text only
I take it the shed noticeably alters it's gait depending on the weather?
I'm not sure that's the best name, unless I have missed a deliberate self debasing joke, in which case I apologize.
As there seems to be a recurring theme developing I would suggest
Babylon Zoo - Spaceman
I'll get my spacecoat
I love the title bar!!! That is brilliant.
Would there be a copper version in the pipeline?
From what I remember about the elements, silver is a bucket load more pricey and copper has a good enough conductivity for most applications.
Mine's the very dusty A level lab coat
A very good point
The only BIG roadblock I can see is weaning corporates off all their excel addins and because of that I don't see anything front office in instituitional banking moving from physical M$ office.
Let's hope he doesn't bring the magic of his scarepoint success to Google
Ooh, Supergrass are playing, In IT for the money...
...but outlook 2010 on imap'd gmail, is strangely buggy.
My favourite is every email from slashdot getting truncated midway through due to some parsing problem.
Mine's the black helicopter with the QA team in it
As my memory serves me
it was the Ghostbusters cartoon series, where everything was fixed by reversing the polarity :)

Hurrah, so in short a government department has moved money from one department to another and I take it the effected parties get nothing?
having an IT angle and a non-gender specific "name"...
A missed opportunity
I'm amazed this wasn't sponsored by Vulture Central.
"The trio of airborne detectives - dubbed Lester, Sarah and Andrew"
So what's the deal
with my existing vinyl, CD and DVD library?
Will there be the option to UV-ize them to stop me buying everything again in this new forever format?
Life imitates art?
I think at 120USD a year, Leeroy Jenkins has already done this </WoW reference>
Mine's the coat with +6 to boring.
Thanks for the clarification chaps :)
Still good news for MPAA and the black helicopters as if MAC address for the last bit is the "out of the box" solution that's "98%"* of sources identified better than before
*Statistic subject to being a number plucked out of thin air
So the last part of the IP is the MAC address and every device gets shown to the Internet.
Good news for the MPAA I guess.
The completely irregular triangle...
...great choice. Nothing else says to me computing power, like an irregular triangle.
I'm thinking we need a where's the "Duke Nukem angle" icon
Speaking of which can any readers remind me of my credit card expiry date and my EQ2 login details? Ta.
I'd be interested to see how/why the tickets bought aren't subject to distance selling regulations and thus the 30 day refund thing.
Big Bird must be shitting it
"They also allege copying of the colors and rectangular shape of the Apple products."
I can envisage the text books of the future:
"There are 15 colours in the 24bit palette which we can name and use freely to draw with and 3 basic geometric shapes. Those of you who wish to draw a window or rectangle please speak with your IP licencing assistant"
Given topics of much commentness of late:
A 50s style atom and a mushroom cloud
Some Richard Dawkins and Pope ones

Perhaps a pile of cash icon too
I hope that they
