And when should we expect to be able to 'finger' it from behind? From the backside, I mean. Oh, never mind.
"You know who I am," he said
The speaker was an angel
He coughed and shook his crumpled wings
Closed his eyes and moved his lips

Great Caesar! World domination is within my grasp!
Fowl! What was that 'collective noun' exercise earlier this week about, then? Was it to demonstrate to the collective readership that while their input will be playfully solicited, it will be roundly and immediately ignored? Un-nice. Wrong turn, el Reg.
This could lead to all kinds of complications.
many good contenders for the collective noun. Here's my suggestion:

WTF? Which industry has a plant/facility that requires having 900 kg of alien blood such as this around? And in one container? Or even one county?
No 50-calibre? No EMP? Budget cuts, I must suppose.
The 667.9 MB version. LibreOffice_5.0.0_MacOS_x86-64. Just opened it. Then opened the readme (a plain text file), as I had nothing in the "Recent Files" menu off of the "Startcenter". Curiously:
"LibreOffice requires a recent version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for full functionality." Ooops!
Reflexively, I'd (eventually) have gone to the preferences and unchecked the "Use a Java runtime environment" setting--but no need, as there's no Java on this machine! Two wins in one.
Wow! I'd completely forgotten that I had it installed. So I went to update and, in a war of wills--myself against a stubborn pop-up at libreoffice.org--, won the right to upgrade it to the n-1th version (4.4.5). Of course, I'll also get the latest and greatest, (5.0) and might even use it (someday). Can't imagine a real need for it, though. It's just like Word--in that respect, anyway.
p.s. My $deity! It's full of megabytes! Two-thirds of a gigabyte, in fact. That's some digital paper-weight.

Is there an alternative to the alternative? Skeletal Flash, perhaps?
Do the world a favour, Adobe: if you're going to make Flash secure, then also make way for HTML5--and make Flash second-tier,
A real head-scratcher! Why would anyone with the necessary chops to bring these things together and, likely, also then arrange for them to be shipped and sold abroad not just get into the business legitimately? The economics of cranking out facsimiles of high-demand consumer items would make interesting reading... (cue TW)
And the axial tilt, to add a degree of dynamism--a cyclic leveling of the playing fields.
> Without that magnetic field, what would out atmosphere look like?
At a guess, it would look like the last of the plume of smoke coming off a wooden match extinguished by a puff of air---with the plume of what was once the atmosphere, and likely all of the surface water, heading off into deep space, directly opposite the sunward side of the planet.
"lawyers" == "they"
And: "they" were running in packs! Suspicious, ya think?
Unfortunately, once it looked like someone was going down, those lawyers had only to walk away, not run.

Look to the right:

If we'd never made it to the trees, we likely would never have become mammals. Still, there's so much to see at the beach; the drive to go back is, understandably, primal.

>Co-founder Steve Jobs famously said that Apple wouldn't attempt to enter the low-cost end of the market because it "didn't know how" to build a cheap device.
That was then. Those guys in Cupertino are probably wilier than they let on. They could do the world a favour and drop something into the low end of the pool, just to kill off the marginal manufacturers.
As for cognitive dissonance.... plausible. But if the shiny-bedazzled yoof are aware that the non-Apple manufacturers are just scraping by, and there's little profit in the non-Apple sector to compete over, then they may well be aware that buying non-Apple is a crap-shoot--as a company making such shiny has a much greater likelihood of not existing, or no longer competing at all in that market, in the near term. And orphaned products are just not as fun to have around. So the decision becomes: go with the winner, because the winner has mega-tonnage of profit to burn through before it, too, has to face the possibility of running at a break-even point---which necessarily would be very long into the future. If ever.
can't be duplicated by someone else? Isn't this all based on what is just a frikkin' app? So, encourage the conversion of the entire taxi industry into a f(r)ee-for-all affair, and let any and all play whatever role they want in the thing. If Uber is just a communications outfit, then they likely can't argue that they're entitled to a natural monopoly in that market--or litigate competition away. Eventually, ride-for-a-fee will settle down and there won't be any big winners. (At least Uber won't be a big winner, anyway.) Am I missing something?
Is this story here because it almost, tenuously relates to the tag line "Biting the hand that feeds IT"?
A real gentleman also ends with foreplay?
I never needed to do anything like that, and the machines I was using were never high-spec Macs. Can you say "RAM-Doubler"? I have to put your need to do so down to the running of Norton-something or Adobe-something-else, or any of a number of dubious third-party control panels or extensions or 'screen-savers'. I recall there were many such niceties that did not "play nice" and though they could be shown to be the equivalent of digital foot-binding, it was nigh-impossible to convince people to do without them- though they were a drag on system performance.
> I don't think that I would do that today!
The key step is "Off to the data center", right?
One thing bothers me about your (current) case, though: in order to qualify as witnesses, wouldn't those same people have had to spend as much time, in the same location as you, doing approximately the same amount of "witnessing" as you are alleged to have done? That would be creepy, no? Just askin', like.
I've heard of sunburn, and I've heard of people being sunburned/sunburnt, but I've never heard of the process being "witnessed".
Perhaps you're thinking of Buck Turgidson.
Linksys WRT54GL in there--if only in a limited way--as it's been a long-time favourite of the DD-WRT crowd.
>Nudity in the Canterbury World Naked Bike Ride is NOT an excuse for self-exhibitionism.
Erect penis != exhibitionism.
The former is largely governed by a reflex arc, the latter not.
A stiff public bamboo could be acutely embarrassing with, or without, the presence of prudes or the cops--not speaking from experience. And there's no Off button or anything, even!
Anyway, come prepared.
>Airbus will still need to satisfy customers that it can ensure that software installs don't go wrong in future.
I can't think of more than one way they can do that.
>any other tricks other than a suspend-resume cycle, a kernel extension, flashrom, and root access
Erm... doesn't root access mean you already own the machine anyway? Dizzy. Have to lie down. Maybe nap...
Some tentacle of the Apple juggernaut appears to have acknowledged your existence--possibly validating it. And, it's beer o'clock. Go to it.

>The ones that make Swiss cheese.
Shouldn't they have holes in them, then?
but you're taking the expression "getting high" a little too literally. Apparently, you can do it in your garden/shed. Even in your basement.
I also thought there was more in that quote of the expected double-speak than... well... expected. Colour me confused.
>If you want to hang on to your data. Which you probably do.

Upvoted. Ah, tone deafness.

Applicable any time in the last 10-15 years, actually.
That's confusing. Fortunately, I need more coffee.
