Libraries, jotters and netbooks
I hate the Windows 7 libraries, seems counter intuitive to my old hierarchical brain. I like my files to be stored in appropriately organized directories. Having said that, I do see a use for something like this GoogleJotter; increasingly I find that I use my dual core 4Gb laptop as a netbook, actually doing very little on it locally whilst essentially using it to access online services and files, and as an RD/VNC terminal for my other machines. When this lenovo kicks the bucket I may be looking for something similar to the GoogleJotter, hopefully the netbook manufacturers by then will have curtailed their expansionist ideas and realize the idea behind the netbook isn't a compact laptop but a frigging netbook and pitch their prices and specs accordingly.
Angela Lansbury when you need her?
No licence fee
But my cable (basic no premium channels) costs about $60 a month ($720 a year), with phone and internet it comes in at $194 a month. I'd rather pay $225 a year, I'd even watch BBC3, be better than the ad laden mindless drivel that we get here.
reminds me of
The whole DDD AAD debacle when CDs were the in thing, CD vs vinyl DVD vs BD, same shit different decade.
Don't ban the phone
Ban the user, you get caught using it you lose your driving licence, simple quick and effective.
One word for this person
Smarten up before we're all ant fodder... erm wait a minute.
will be watching for the demise off Vuze nee Azureus.
Paris, whipping, wind sounds like a weekend!
I have a $90 Argosy box hat will stream from TVersity and play MKV natively. so even $200 dollars is over the top.
Add another 100 quid
and you'd pretty much have a decent HTPC, which will do a helluva lot more than this fugly box!
Intellectual Property and Football
Surely the two terms are mutually exclusive.
Start the cull
Watching reality TV will probably qualify you to fulfill the UK quota.
I used to read the Graun
but they refused my Boffin STaTus. BaStArds.
is suffering from ED, website seems to have died.
Just the thought of all the tree huggers choking on the muesli as they read their morning news on their iPads.
Seems he's stuck on repeat.
Bit like the pap him and his band churned out, you wouldn't notice a scratch on the vinyl for hours.
back in the day
used to be known as corned beef legs, was a result of standing too close to the coal fire after coming in form the cold and wet that was the Scottish climate.
can you milk a franchise for.
Just the US?
Mainstream media in the UK is pretty much in the Jobsian pocket too, perhaps iPocket.
Works wonderfully, BBC have been messing around with iPlayer all week so I suspect something is in the offing. Open it up and charge us for it. With what I pay my piss poor US cable provider for the dross it has the cheek to charge for I would happily pay the BBC for it's content..
Oh I'd like some decent beer and the occasional curry/kebab too!
Just has to be
Set to vibrate.
Doesn't give you a market unless you hit the price breaks, looking at their website they have failed in that respect.
Given the amount of chemical industry around that area seems fair enough.
and I thought it through.
They should disconnect them until the user has fixed the problem, certainly Time Warner in the US will disconnect machines infested with spam mailers.
is not the same in the UK as in the US, MD is a postgraduate qualification undertaken by Bachelors of Medicine. It can also be the equivalent of a DSc, which is a higher degree than PhD and is awarded for significant contribution to an area of work, generally by the University in which you obtained your first degree.
Generally people who look down their noses walk into walls no matter what their qualification, I think the guy in question was merely miffed at being denied the right to use the title he had worked hard to attain. The assertion that medical doctors are only called doctor out of courtesy is not totally true, some have the required qualifications others don't. Personally I'd rather have a competent one no matter what their level of academic achievement. Speaking as one who has a PhD I can say I've met proportionately more prats with PhDs than without, whether that makes me a prat or not I don't know. I'm sure my colleagues probably have opinions on that matter.
In the US are slightly different to those in the UK, ask any US exchange student who has studied at a UK institution they'll make you aware of the difference. When my qualifications were ratified for use in the US my Scottish O grades were equated to a HS diploma and my Scottish H grades (lower than A levels) were equated to college credits. From what I've seen if you look at a student who has completed a Masters in the US then their level is roughly comparable to an Honours graduate from a UK University.
they had to pay money for this research
Seems perfectly predictable to me.
'Don't hold your breath' says Yoko
Wish she would hers!
Tried Coolpdf reader but it was very unstable. Settled on Slimpdfreader, seems to be fast and offer very readable results, (even sheet music).
i suppose you could class it as such but I couldn't even get a browser window to open, sat there in the background with 2 instances running and utilising 50% of my dual core to do nothing.
Interesting turn of events.
The US senate passes a law that a foreign court ruling cannot be enforced within the US. Wonder if they will follow through and stop trying to enforce their laws outside their jurisdiction.
Fuji 7 $66, twin pack of 10 print film $16.
Still too expensive.
is it just me?
Or do other people have the nascent welder within clamouring to get out and scream "450 quid for a *&%$ing phone!!!!!"?
Not aimed at the this particular phone but at them in general.
Molecules with sunglasses
Title of a Horizon documentary from years ago covering the discovery of the C60 and C70 compounds and the subsequent characterization of the structure of the molecules. Great program, the title derives from Kroto's theory that the structure of the buckyballs would render them immune to most of the radiation that deep space could throw at them, and hence they would be out there somewhere. Looks as if he has been proven right at long last.
He gyped her for the executive relief tariff on a previous flight, she was only making sure that she could maximize her earnings for the flight by eliminating a bad payer and presumably bumping a besuited one from economy.
Constraining the device to ereader only will enhance the market, if they go for an all singing and dancing device then the price will encroach on the Tablet devices. Let's face it most people are not going to lash out $300-$400 for something that you can read a book with. Get that price point down to the $100 level and you will own the market.
In the short term will not replace storage drives as opposed to boot drives, so this looks very interesting.
Send a crate of Anusol to Balmer.
I am rarely moved to swear on forums but this really is appropriate!
Over 18 months
with an Ectaco Jetbook and I would say I am reading more and faster. I think a lot if it is to do with familiarity. I use mine on a daily basis and am quite happy to use it for extended periods. It's also good to have in the pub whilst waiting for the crawl to kick off!
Will become TACKAT. The Artist Currently Known As Twonk. As in "What a twonk!."
I believe that we are using several billion times more natural gas, coal and oil than is being produced. So your analogy doesn't bear examination, most industrial helium is derived from distillation of natural gas. the 3000 tonnes you refer to is that liberated from the earths rocks etc naturally.
Is constantly released from radioactive decay, largely from shale oil deposits. We've heard this airship crap since the 1930s. I'll believe it when I see it.
A quarter of 26000 is 6500, a fifth is 5200, 6000 is closer to a quarter of 26000 than it is to a fifth, perhaps he should have just said three thirteenths.
"If you look at Scotland, it has the highest graduation rate [in the UK], but lower productivity than northeast England. There is a very interesting question about whether university degrees turn into productivity."
Currently 12.5% of all students in Scotland are from overseas. 41% of entrants to Edinburgh University were English. I doubt many remain after their studies are over unless they have managed to secure employment.
That isn't mathematics
That's arithmetic mate.
Nothing like unremitting humiliation from your peer group to get you to toe the line. Unfortunately the peer group giving the humiliation, in most cases, are the ones with questionable literacy skills.
Should be for the benefit of the student, if it is not for their benefit then the student has no investment and consequently couldn't give a shit. Testing as a means of assessing a school's performance is ridiculous, to use an American phrase, "You get given lemons, you make lemonade".
