Similar to the French version of the Toyota MR2 which is known as the MR, which avoids the homophonous "est merdeux" - is shitty.
Confidentiality does not trump the GPs legal obligation to report information if they suspect a crime has been committed. Given this chap's fondness for relating fantasies as possible memories of events then it's hardly surprising the GP thought that they should report it.
If you have rooted your unlocked Samsung (possibly others I can only confirm this brand) then the update some US providers release will not work.
This is the sort of thing you expect from a repressive, authoritarian, police state, not from a western democracy. I fail to understand how this is legal purely from the point of making this person unable to seek or indeed gain any sort of employment, let alone the other civil rights implications. I suspect that if his appeal fails it will be going to the court of human rights. The UN has said that internet access is a basic human right, and given that this individual has been found not guilty, has no criminal record, and then this sort of restriction is imposed this must be a contravention of that.
Solar powered in Britain???

Error appears to be on El Reg's end the publication abstract says CE not BCE.
Bristlecone pines with ages in excess of 4000 years have been found in CA, the oldest is call Methuselah and is aged at 4765. There is a spruce in Sweden called Old Tjikko has been aged at more than 9500 years old, but this is due to natural cloning.
Radiodendrochronology, that'd be a bugger in Scrabble, if it would fit on the board that is.
and not un-uninstallable like their, and most other providers, bloatware then I wouldn't have an issue with this.
In the last 24 hours I'm seeing page likes from other friends featuring ads for various items. Dollar Shave Club being one of them. Never saw this before, either because of my blocking or because this is new behaviour.
"*about 800 furlongs per fortnight."
about 6 wanks a day?
Bastards breed, they also have suicidal tendencies, they seem to coat themselves in an invisible slippery field guaranteed to end up with the damn thing bouncing on the hardwood floor springing it's battery cover (if it still has one) and occasionally batteries too. In my living room there are 8 remote controls, AC and Fan (both items are essential at this time of year although their need for a remote is dubious), TV, Satellite system, Amazon Fire Stick, HTPC (X10 rf), rf keyboard and mouse for gaming PC, and rf mini keyboard and touchpad for HTPC. The TV and Satellite ones are supposedly multi remotes but they only cover the essential parts of the device it wasn't designed for, so if you want to mess with the screen or audio settings then you gotta go hunt for the original remote. STB should come with QWERTY remotes, searching for something using a phonepad is a pain.
Neat trick for those of you who don't know if you have an IR remote that you think is nadgered switch on your camera phone and point the remote at it, the sensor in the phone is IR sensitive and so you can see if the transmitter is working when you press a button.
Not quite a half hunter but it is a pocket watch
personally I'll stick to my good old Seiko, bought in 1971 by my Dad for my 12th birthday, still ticking.
That can be disabled.
that we like ad content, and indeed won't use FB if the ads aren't there. In my case the opposite is true, FB is a means for me to keep in fairly regular contact with relatives and friends on 3 continents, the only thing that makes it usable is a collection of filters in ABP along with the facebook annoyances blocker. (http://facebook.adblockplus.me/)

Unfortunately this is true, largely due to the educational content being built up over many years there is a financial reluctance on behalf of the content originators to update to current technology. I teach a couple of online courses and a lot of the content is flash, java or shockwave based. All of these cause our students varying degrees of problems which are compounded by the locked down configurations school issued laptops have here in the US. I have no control over the content, I merely deliver the content and put out fires while the courses are running, last semester they were more like forest fires. I have been promised that the Fall semester will bring shiny new working content that will not have these issues... I'm not holding my breath.
Jail the fekkers!
was a recalcitrant Synaptics touchpad v clickpad driver clash. This is not a new issue and has dogged HP laptops (and other manufacturers I believe) since windows 8.0. Essentially every new Windows update/release identifies the touchpad as a clickpad and installs the driver assigning the most used gestures to fixed functions. I use the three finger left and right swipe to go back and forth on webpages etc and this effing driver uses it to alt tab. I have to disable the driver update in the group policy editor. 4 machines and this is the only issue so far, fingers crossed.
I tell my family I threaten the PC with a screwdriver and that I'm not afraid to use it.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
All the while rhythmically smashing the recalcitrant PC into ever smaller pieces with a 15lb mash hammer.
Not confined to tech, remember Highlander? The scene where the woman specialist in ancient swords carbon dates the samurai sword? Couple of issues with this, the amount of carbon required for this is not insignificant when compared to the amount of carbon in the steel making up the sword and the size of the sliver removed from the concrete support. There may be other issues as to what the origin of the carbon used in the manufacture of the sword. However, the major issue was that the shiny shiny instrument that was used to carbon date the sword was in fact a Perkin Elmer 3030 Atomic Spectrometry setup. Really good for determining the concentration of trace elements in the steel on an element by element basis but fucking useless for carbon dating. Sorry if this is too specific but stuff like that ruins otherwise entertaining movies.
Indeed an 8TB backup, actually closer to 6TB but it was an 8TB disk, took 70 hours to complete.
Even something as simple as an Airfix kit teaches a kid how to follow a set of written instructions in the correct order. Try getting a teenager to do that in a lab, without them asking "what am I supposed to do?"...
You are completely bananas, Bernie and Trump have absolutely nothing in common apart from both of them being in their 70s. Trump in the Oval Office is the fulfilment of Putin's wettest dream. The chaos that would ensue in the western world would be cataclysmic both economically and societally. For Obama to essentially to wipe the floor with him in the White House during a totally unrelated press conference speaks volumes about the trepidation there is about this ignorant twunt getting into office. We're one week into the actual election and he is well on the way to alienating the sensible republicans (I know there ain't many) he just refused to endorse Speaker Ryan and McCain in their upcoming elections, he sees it as payback, but then he is an 8 year old.
No you're not, but not through choice. The only network available in this area (Central Maine USA) uses CDMA and those are a bit like rocking horse shit... rare. Even when you find one the operator then throws up barriers to actually getting the damn thing registered on their network, I just find it easier to outright buy a "previously owned" handset from the cellphone company so as not to be paying $750 over 2 years for one. One of the perils of living in a free market economy where everyone and their brother is either operating or striving to operate in a monopolistic manner.
need their CEOs to be responsible for their actions. You break the law badly enough we have a rather fetching orange jump suit for you to wear for the next few years, while we garnish your pension and confiscate your mansion to compensate your victims.
"Over my cold, dead corpse..."
Probably part of the plan.
It's legal and a helluva lot better than some of the stuff their predecessors got into.
Similar story, bottle of Argon was ordered. Chap in the stores receiving queried the amount (about 700 quid at the time) for a single bottle of Ar (usually about 30 quid) seems the lab tech who had ordered it had ordered semiconductor grade instead of lab grade. Difference between 99.9999% and 99.998% purity.
bunch of money grubbing twunts.
I have installed W10 on two decade old machines who have never had their BIOSes updated, no issues other than the rather long installation time.
When I use my VPN in incognito mode the home page is Google.ae, the VPN is supposed to be UK based. No clue what's going on there.
Cue Benny Hill music.
that manufacturers have the added expense of making these devices right hand drive, I'm sure they're making an astute financial decision here.
+1 on the phasers, we still have 2 of them running on our building, 10 years old and still producing quality prints with no fuss.
if they have the mode our Xerox Workcentres display on a random basis, Print to æther . You know the one where you print your document and it disappears into the æther never to see the light of day, despite the fact the printer reports that is decomposing the file. Seems the decomposition goes too far with the body completely disintegrating.
there was any long term market anyway, the number of teenagers I see wearing a watch is minimal, if they want the time it's just another excuse to pull out the smart phone.
the people need to know!
jeez the Republicans have moved on, I thought they would be AOL, you know Assholes On Line.
Nah come on tell us what you really thought of it... no beating around the bush now!
performance at the RNC will keep him awake if Trump ever gets into the Oval office. At least I hope it does.
or indeed rape if you happen to be an ivy league athlete.
I think Pokemoning will become Urban Dictionary material. Ah apparently it already is
"Pokemoning (also spelled "Pokémoning") is the act of dating multiple partners (or having multiple friends) in order to collect all the desired traits that's very likely to not exist in one single individual. Named so because you "Gotta Catch 'Em All.""
Yep around 3:40
Buying the game on steam I get, and indeed have done, but forking out $100 for a Battleship in World of Warships for example is beyond me.
just completely confuses me. I like computer games, I play them occasionally but I'm not an obsessive person about anything so the behaviour of seemingly normal people with these "games" just completely bamboozles me. It's like the purchasing of virtual items for real money in games... why??? Don't get it.
