Are these 'safer outlets' 230v?
What renewable disaster was that?
This only stops them being imported into the US, and I'm not sure but I think shops are allowed to still sell remaining stocks....
Settling underwater is less likely than you'd think, mainly due to decompression.. would you want to live somewhere where you have to spend a day in a hypobaric chamber just to go to the surface?
Or, log the most recent co-ords on login, so if you're out in a city, it can show you users 'in your area'. IIRC Tinder did something like this...
50kW to run a personal computer? that's some overclock!
CBT, a couple of hundred most likely, although you need to redo them every 2 years. a 125... you can get Chinese ones new for <2k easy, and a good Japanese one second/third/nth hand for under a k.
Yep, just mentioned that in another reply. Bredbury Scissors is an example of grand plans that never came to fruition. The M60 goes through a big right; this was originally meant to be a slip road for traffic coming off the M63 to merge onto the M66; heading south, the M66 would have continued straight to become the A6(M) Stockport/Hazel Grove bypass (which means it would not have been A road traffic merging into the outside lane, but motorway traffic). The M634 would have continued straight on to Hattersley, which would have joined the M67, which originally would have run both all the way into Manchester (which is why the A57 is so wide most of the way into town East of Manchester; space reserved for the motorway) to what is not the A57(M)/A635(M) Mancunian Way,. and all the way across the Pennines to meet the M1, either in Sheffield, or near J35A I believe, depending on who you talk to.
If you actually care, look up SELNEC, or go to Pathetic Motorways, which is fascinating if you care about the history of British Roads and bureaucracy, and what might have been, as well as the peculiar relics spattered about this isle of ours.
Just like the M1 when it hits the M621 at the south of Leeds - reason for that being the M1 used to BE the M621 heading into Leeds, until they extended it North.
And the M60 at Bredbury in Stockport, where it hangs a sharp right, and the joining traffic comes in on the outside lane from an A-road roundabout. this used ot be the joining of the M63/M66, with the A-road merge originally being slated to be the A6(M) Stockport/Hazel Grove bypass, until it was binned.
There's myriad examples, usually they're due to roads being planned but never built. OR just pure bad expansion policy (see the centre of Derby for an example of how NOT to do roads.)
by 'eventually' it could have several stages of intermediate unstable isotopes before finally settling down', I guess...
Doesn't everything (that does decay) eventually decay into something stable?
I believe any isotope that has a half life (i.e. will eventually decay) is unstable. IIRC, Bismuth is technically unstable; It has a half-life of something in the order of a billion billion years, but because it has one, it is unstable.
I used to play it at my friend's house on the NES, many hours lost battling it out. Good times.
It also nicely ties us to an article earlier this week since Codemasters were producing unlicensed NES cartridges (as well as the almighty Game Genie)
bought one second hand, the screen started tearing pretty much immediately. Contacted Pebble support, and after giving them the serial no, and pictures to prove I had that pebble, they sent me out a new one. Didn't even ask for the old one back. It took 6 weeks to arrive, but their customer service is great - they obviously decided that the financial hit for replacing them was worth more, as positive PR and increased consumer loyalty - than the negative press that would be generated by ignoring it.
Contact them - i'd be very surprised if you got nothing.
Next there will be a levy on flour in case you format shift it into cake.
They used to keep one at Woodford in the 80s/90s... growing up on the flight path, it was always a sight when this lovely beast came in.
20th anniversary release, I bet ya. Just hope the initial PS exclusive doesn't leave me waiting a year for the PC release like with the original
IIRC British Gas units use Vodafone. Other vendors may vary.
well,i rebooted my 8.1 machine an hour or so ago and a new icon has appeared in my taskbar, so i can sign up for the upgrade when it is available, so expect actual information from MS soon
You're probably right, thank you. Clearly I needed more coffee
"Windows 10 IoT Core is an oddity in that while it does have a GUI stack, it is limited to Microsoft’s Universal App Platform (UAP)"
"Note that IoT Core is not limited to UAP apps."
Anyone else confused?
My partner didn't receive a polling card; we spoke to the council who told us that she was registered and to just turn up; fortunately she is on the list at the station. We aren't in London, but it seems similar issues have occurred elsewhere, but our council was switched on enough to deal with it...
" I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it"
You owe me a new KB
More than that, it requires an iOS device to work. You won't still be using your iPhone 6 in a decade. And I suspect that when the iPhone 8 comes out with iOs 10 or whatever,. it will have dropped support for the first gen Watch, to force the cultists to upgrade anyway.
Would that be the Nookie Transmission Protocol then?
if that were the case, why listen to US companies?
I also find it interesting that 6 of the 19 are German..
Never heard of Foundem either..
This all strikes me as 'My product isn't good enough to beat the 'Merkin company,waah, daddy EU legislate me some market share' whining by a bunch of also-rans, whereby there will be court cases for years, there will be a fine, google will have to add 'did you mean to search with bing?' labels on their search listings, the EU bureaucrats all shake hands with each other and pontificate on what a great job they did, while the consumers all continue using Google because it is good enough, but now more annoying due to the extra crap they're forced to add. So they use a non-eu TLD version instead, like with the right to rape kids and have it deleted^w^w^w^w^w^wbe forgotten charade.
TL:DR; its total shit that will do nothing but annoy consumers slightly and make lawyers rich while demonstrably changing nothing.
Where do you put the /good/ excrement, an iMac mini?
I think the 16:9 ratio is due to the panels being mass produced for TV use, which makes them cheap to procure
Your algebra is flawed
"I like OSS, but I don't believe that it is immune from "Ego, politics, and lies"."
See: Linus Torvalds
I had to google that phrase. Your comment is already tagged (and the only hit, too) :P
in my day, we called em 'Null Modem Cables'...
"I believe they call it defensive driving to always assume everyone else outside of your own vehicle might an idiot."
Having spent years on a motorcycle, I live by that creed, albeit in the slightly elongated form "Assume everyone else on the road who is an idiot who is trying to kill you"
Riding a motorcycle makes you much more aware of what is going on in the road ahead of you; you're typically looking further ahead, aware of that person coming to the junction who may just pull out in front of you, or that car parked near an intersection so visibility of both parties at said intersection cannot see each other.
My pet hate is people in these ridiculously long vehicles who actually nose out into traffic just so they can see; I dread to think how many cyclists have been caught out by these... (though don't get me started on cyclists; red lights are for all road users, including you, don't blindly cycle through them like you own the road!). Is there a competition between german car manufacturers to a) sell to the biggest douches; b) see how close they can egt to getting the driver sitting in the boot?
Isn't it technically illegal for the flashing lights to be mounted on the bike itself, I was under the impression that flashing modes were only for when the lights are mounted on the cyclist themselves...
m = milli; µ = micro
As much as I love Star Wars (The Original Trilogy, of course), I still marvel at their slower-than-light lasers.
Since it is now obligitory to link this when referring to Fukushima here..
I have a Nokia TV. Branded Granada though IIRC.. I think a lot of their stuff was rebadged by the rent-a-telly crowd back in the day.....
I remember being in France, with a friend of mine, heading along the high street in this small town , gleefully singing this at the top of our voices. Good times....
well I'm up in the lake district this weekend so you know it's going to be thrashing it down for me!
I managed to see them from suburban Derbyshire last year
"Vittu" is indeed the Finnish variant of the C-word.
I once saw a car on the M1 with the reg plate "V1TTU"
I wonder if he knew....
It would be, except the amount of people who use blank passwords and easily guessable usernames means that being able to guess your way in would be trivial in a lot of cases.... especially since these people are the type not to have adequate firewalling in place.
There's an awful lot of After RotJ books that are officially Canon - well, that is to say, they /were/... they could do a lot worse than make Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy...
Palp[atine, Vader and the Second Death Star may be gone, but by no means were all of the Empire's forces destroyed at Endor. Now, various Admirals etc, each with their own fleet, are warlords, vying to either unite the remnants of the Empire under themselves, or hold onto their own feifdoms. At the same time, you have the Rebel Alliance forming the New Republic, Luke going renegade and back again trying to resurrect the Jedi order... there's plenty that could be done.
I just hope they don't invalidate the twenty-odd years of post- RotJ canon with the kind of twoddle Eps 1-3 inflicted upon the saga....
I fear we are kindred spirits... I have a huge collection of old consoles, including most of those in your (very impressive) picture and an old SPARC Station 5... has to throw out the old Sun 20" CRT when I last moved (it was enormous and very heavy) so it goes unused, my dreams of having a fanless *Ux firewall/server dashed, when I could never get the Wyse serial terminal to work with it (I still have that, green on black).. and I never did find a connector to convert the Sun 15D3 or whatever it was video port to VGA...
I love the internal design of the SS5, so clean and minimalistic and functional...
Also got about 5 old PC boxes (I left 10 I'd acquired behind as well when I moved), 3 boxes of cables, a 386 compaq laptop (runs and boots still! Has the weird trackball built into the lid)...
Actually, they _did_ implement such a measure... but only for levelling content. Every 8 hours your character is left unplayed in an inn, you will gain double the XP from killing creatures for the next 5% of your level.
They were originally going to have a 'fatigued' status for your character, so that beyond a certain point, you would only gain 50% XP until you rested, but that caused such a fuss, they gave you 'rested' xp bonus, and then doubled the XP needed to gain each level, thus having the same net effect, but without the QQ.
Of course, the real hardcore spend all of their time at max level, and this does nothign to impact them..
Surely that picture is not the antenna itself, but the chip that controls it? As others have said, the antenna would be a wire somewhere else within the device. Antennas themselves are merely dumb signal colectors/senders, the clever part is in the chippery that controls them...
I wasn't aware that the business had passed into such shady hands... I shall stop using and reccommending this software now.
It raised a smile to se my alma mater UMIST mentioned. T'was a sad day when it was merged into University of Manchester...
Interesting to see the research going into these issues; I had no idea rivets accounted for so much of a plane's weight.
