How many of my generation (50ish) were influenced by this man and his contemporaries. I remember getting up in the middle of the night to watch the lunar landings in July of 1969, I also know that society at that time was probably more pro science that at any time before or since. It certainly affected my choice of subjects at school and my chosen academic path and ultimately profession. He will be sadly missed, a brave, modest and intelligent man, qualities that are rare let alone to be found in one individual. When asked about his relative lack of exercise when compared to his fellow astronauts Neil Armstrong said, "I believe God gave us all a limited number of heart beats,and I will be damned if I use mine up running up and down the street."
Re: A moralist predicts the future
Firewire was Apple's name for the IEEE 1394 interface, whilst Apple indeed contributed heavily to the development and patent pool the license for each item was set at $0.25. The reason USB 1.0 and 2.0 were successful despite IEEE 1394's greater performance was that the hardware for IEEE 1394 was significantly more expensive, in a tight margin market this will kill or severely limit the implementation of a product.
Should have been
$5 Billion awarded to both, banning of all infringing hardware from both manufacturers and a kick in the bollocks for both sets of lawyers.

Nook app in Android, and iOS as well as a browser reader. All of which will allow sideloading of epubs.

There's an argument with her inside.
Finding it Clean
Not a great user of the start button or the associated menu, I was always a quick launch toolbar sort of person. TBH this windows incarnation has just given me more room on my taskbar to accommodate even more icons in my QL. Personally not a fan of pinning, takes up too much room. Everything installed without a hitch, I only had to replace the windows sound driver as the sound levels were too low. After a few minor WTFs I've now settled down to realising that it's actually not bad and probably within the week will take the plunge and stick it on the SSD laptop.
but very slow. Would seem to me that they really need to embrace torrenting when this sort of release happens.
Buckling I think, getting errors on request for license keys and for downloads.
Re: US viewer here. Please, can I pay the license fee?
If the BBC can ever get cross national licensing sorted out they'd make a fortune in other countries, I currently pay about a third of the TV license every month for shit channels that have 16 minutes of commercials for every hour broadcast.
Re: Too right
VPN is old hat there's easier stuff around, check out SmartDNS
Re: First Class mail
Depends on the size of budgie one is smuggling I would presume!
First Class mail
£57,575,003.3 if shifted in one large parcel. Or £987,000,000 not including packing for individual letters.
NBC Olympic coverage
Sucked the big one.
Cut out a large chunk of the opening ceremony which was tape delayed, including the tribute to the victims of terrorism, to talk to Michael Phelps. They even bleeped out Eric in the closing ceremony, 'Lif'e's a piece of BLEEP, when you look at it."

The PowerPC was not an Apple product, made by Motorola or IBM. Apple chose to use it.
Re: registration plate
IN that case it is genuine and appears to have been registered in Himachal Pradesh.
Not quite right there is a digit missing.

Wish I was in
I was editing my friends list on the Book of Face and found that of the 200 or so accounts about 15 had been deactivated, 7.5% gone. I wonder if it's a growing trend.
My 18 month old Viewsonic g-tablet scores 6426 in AnTuTu, and it cost $249 then. Can be had on ebay for about $150.
Is rooting a mortal sin?
Here in the USA
We are haggis free apart from the tinned variety. There is an import ban on meats containing offal from the UK due to CJD/BSE (complete nonsense). Some locals have claimed to produce the wonderful stuff but unfortunately they don't compare to a decent MacSweens or indeed a Halls for that matter.
3 year old laptop
Has an IR interface used zero times, had a dvd rw until about six months ago at which point I pulled it and replaced it with a second HD bay, prior to this it had been used twice in 2.5 years. Apple MacBook I have has a "superdrive" which hasn't been used at all in its 3 year lifetime, but then the MacBook hasn't been used much either.
as a user I don't understand the attraction for Instagram, I tried the android version for about 5 minutes decided I could use the memory space for something more worthwhile (noughts and crosses springs to mind) deleted it. Doesn't do anything special as far as I can see.
Re: Alternative approach.
Glad to see the joke alert there. I don't think I've used FireFerret in over a year, too slow, annoying interface etc.
People, glass houses, and casting stones springs to mind a far as that harridan is concerned.

Re: she was "appalled" by what she found there
You sure it didn't return Daily Mail?
guilty or not
The plod will keep any information gleaned. You will have to go through the same convoluted procedure to ensure its destruction that currently you have to go through to get your DNA removed from their DBs.

If this had been a worker drone, how long would they have been given to produce the claimed certification before they were fired.
Re: Nook color
Did that on day of purchase, dual booting since then.
is a fine little tablet, but to really take on the iPad they need a 10" version. If they can do that at the right price point then the world will be their oyster, when I say right price point I don't mean matching I mean undercutting significantly.
Multiple Choice Qs are not
Necessarily easy. Exam questions need to be very carefully written and the answers in a multi-choice section need just as much attention. A-E should always be the option -0.5 points for a wrong answer liberal use of multi stage questions involving interpretation of diagrams/tables can make these sort of Exams more challenging than the traditional written exam.
Installed it last night
After fighting with it to install wifi drivers, and then fighting with it to browse my network I fought with it to stop crashing firefox. After 3 hours of this crap I threw in the towel, Not my happiest Ubu experience by a long chalk.
Google and Apple
Hope you're supping with a very long spoon!
Hmm they really are pariahs!
Completely agree, the point of terrorism is to terrorise your victims into modifying their behaviour either to their discomfort or to satisfy your terrorist goals. If you ignore the terrorists, in terms of everyday life by not modifying your behaviour then they cannot achieve their goals. The whole war on terror is a wet dream of the corporations.
Re: $2 or $5 to copy to the system
Yes it is but not to provide me with an HD digital copy of my BD for a cost of $5 or and SD one for $2
$2 or $5 to copy to the system
charging for material I already own, pretty neat trick. I think as this is largely in the distributors interest this service should be free.
I think some other term needs to be used rather than Intellectual Property. Given the number of IP suits that are being taken to court that seem to be anything but Intellectual. Software patents and the like should be Bleeding Obvious Property, grumble flicks could be Gratification Property, music could be Predictably Generic Property and Hollywood's output would be Total Lack of Inspiration Property.
Only available in White, double the price and half the spec. Comes with free beachball.
