These scientists need to do more reasearch into 7Hz communications.
(With the features outlined in Borland Turbo C++ manual)
It's a Daily Mail style bait article. Just go with the flow, (i.e. ignore).
That's all I have to say on the matter.

Is the answer?....
Respect the amount of raw computing power you have on your desk, (or hand held), computer and personally take responsibility for the information stored there on? (because those who say they will do it for you, don't necessarily have "your" best interests at heart).
Actually, story and execution wise, it was pretty horrible in 2D anyway, however...
Tom Baker's voice, (before he appeared), did give a bit of a old school buzz.- so not a total waste of time.
Re: can Windows fork() processes yet?
Not entirely sure why you would want to "fork" a process under NT. Yes you can execute out to one, (with all the overhead that uses), but generally a thread or two inside the same process will suffice.
Re: Must be rather chilly there....
In the general population flaccid length isn't actually a good indicator of it's turgid length. Besides it seems to be mostly surrounded by bush so what's the problem?
Re: WHO THE HELL TYPES IN URLS??????
well if you have p2pbsm.<something> and another level allows p2pbsm.<something else> those search engine results will be polluting your original domain search result, (and therefore marketing budget), with the upstarts domain - probably malware - results.
Unless you own it - which is what they are counting on to finance their fancy yacht trips - probably.
Its just another form of racism.
don't be so silly.

Probably because she was a dick?
I would bow...

Re: Observations... MK2
1) Do they have a counter built in which shows how many times that dog is going to be shot at by the owner? (If they don't they should).
2) Firing an MG, (one handed), out of an airlock while you are wearing a spacesuit - in a vacuum - isn't really a good idea for either your health or accuracy.

Re: What happened to OS-9?
The bods responsible decided not to sell out to MS whereby precluding the chance to spend the rest of their lives fiddling with other stuff with the full knowledge they wouldn't have to worry about their old age.
Re:"laid off because some bean counter though outsourcing would save money."
Actually plenty of old contractors out there, who were too short sighted to see how things were going. Maybe, just maybe they shouldn't of got a contract in the first place. Just saying like.
Re: "And what will supersede Windows XP Pro 128bit encrypted systems please?"
A proper operating system?
(Ok flippant remark as I earn most of my money from MS stuff, but still know it's rubbish in terms of what could have been achieved over the time period given their market dominance)
because this was a news story on Radio 4 today, I've had two people ring up and say 'have my details been hacked", even though they just use Adobe Reader and have never signed into their services. Now if you want to extrapolate from that to Adobe's user base in general, it's probably not very good press.
Re:"It most certainly is insulting to actual engineers. "
Ahh, but as an engineer you'd know this. Anyway, engineers tend not to really care about the thoughts of others if there is something interesting to do - unless you have to do some smooching for dosh/living wage/etc.
Re :- "Wesley Crusher's "Game" orgasmic disk thingy....
Actually that was just a rip off of the little hand held game devices in Phillip K Dicks 'The Zap Gun'. (However they did win the day against the alien threat when the aliens got a hold of them).
Re: So the sham is revealed.
Actually it shows how the EU just love oligarchies.
Re: Sorry the whole 'do something in a "Steam punk" way' is just silly.
Point taken, (with added plus), however if it's a 'thought experiment', (i.e. just going a mechanical way), why bring in the whole Steam Punk thing? Steam Punk tends to be Victoriana + magic or Victoriana with wayward physics. If you just want a mechanical solution 'thought experiment', there isn't really a problem - other than the size of the thing you build.
Sorry the whole 'do something in a "Steam punk" way' is just silly.
a) Victorians, (as previously mentioned), had electricity.
b) Steam punk doesn't preclude the use of electricity, and if it does and isn't using 'magic', (maybe something like Space 1889), it just changes the laws of physics anyway.
c) Just use a large pin art board with appropriate mechanics if you want to go the whole 'not quite Steam Punk VDU route) - maybe just call it Georgian Punk, (but then they knew about electricity as well - but still burnt witches, so will slot in with the whole fanaticism thing).
Re: This is a new OS not an update.
Yes you are right with your comment "This is a new OS not an update", as it removed stuff from 8 rather than just fixing/updating it. What the feck happened to the search and where are the nice "art nouveau" start screen backdrops?
However the statement "Installing 8.1 will remove all your applications users etc from your PC leaving you with a vigin install, your original login and no apps." is just bollox's.
My o/s test laptop, (don't really care about it but nice to test install new windows stuff on it), is currently Vista->Windows 7 -> Windows 8 -> Windows 8.1 in place installs, which is really quite good as I haven't had to reinstall anything other than VMWare and MagicDisk thingy - and yes it is a working machine, (but not my main PC - main PC is Windows 7 with a very good image of the previous XP dev box as a VM).
Re Win 8.1 boots A LOT quicker than Mint and Ubuntu too
In my experience, It does get to the lock screen quickly, and you can then type your password/do squggilies into the login screen. Then you have to wait on that screen for quite a while before the start screen, (or desktop if that's you preference), actually appears, while it actually loads the o/s proper.
The new 8.1 search...
is just horrible. Which is a shame because the old one was really the only thing I liked about 8.
Re: "Wasn't cannabis first banned because it was a threat to the profits of the pharmaceuticals?"
Nope the general urban myth is that it was all about Randolph Hearst, DuPont and the paper industry which forced it to be banned. (i.e. a cheaper way to make paper using hemp). However it basically got banned, (in the states at least), during their puritan prohibition thang after the first world war when there was a critical mass of people kicking around who like to moan about such things and hadn't actually got killed or maimed in the trenches.

Re: or should I ask, how dirty is your house??
You obviously don't have a blue cat with a white carpet, (or something which isn't).
They arn't that great for dog hairs on stairs either regardless if they are wearing a hat or not.
Looking at the Wikipidia article for this disorder,
I would have thought that anybody who doesn't have one or more of the conditions associated with it, is basically a social, (regardless of gregariousness), and technical, (ability wise), cabbage in reality and probably shouldn't be employed in anything more taxing than chicken grading, sales or HR.
He didn't bail last year, at this time, when the stock was at 629.56, but after reading a book, (probably large letter small word edition), and watching a bad film, (probably), he decides to pull out, (like Wedge in Star Wars), at 486.56. I wish I had a public school sounding name.
Re: temporarily at least....
Yes dumping them would lead to a loss of confidence, (i.e. increase the supply). However as it's a limited resource,in certain respects, (well until the math is broken), it will just climb back up. It's not like you can just print more of it like.
Re: I've climbed so far up Apple's butt in recent years, etc..
Recognizing that you have a problem is the first step on the road to recovery. (or is that beer - can't remember).

Re : Meet the Linux distro with a bizarre Britney Spears fixation
So it's an agents/producer school girl fixation thing? - rather than being useful. Look pretty though.

Re: HL3 steambox exclusive
Probably the only person on the planet, but I actually thought that the story, (and execution), in HL2(*), was actually rubbish. (The engine, however, has given me hours, days, months of pleasure on other games which use it).
(*) CS/Source and DOD/Source are, gameplay wise, not as good as the originals) - will probably have to live in a cave after this statement.
Re: more like trackballs than joypads
So why not just use hi-res trackballs. Personally I hate touchpads, but having a trackball on the right would be awesome. (Obviously left handed peeps would not like this, so also a track ball on the left as well). Go spinny balls of doom, go. (erm it's a mechanical thing).
