'Phantom Eye' hydrogen strato-spy drone starts building

Cheeky Chappie
WTF?

Hydrogen engine?

If 'they' have produced a viable hydrogen engine, how come it hasn't been fitted to normal cars then? Oh of course, silly me, petrol is far more expensive than mere hydrogen that is more freely available, as well with a really noxious substance called water as a byproduct not that nice carbon monoxide stuff that's so good for our lungs.

Or am I missing something? OK flame away

Airport scanner staff object to vetting

Big Brother

Back in the late 90's.......

I worked at Heathrow in airline security, we routinely searched bags taken at random. some of these belonged to young ladies - there is no difference(from a sexual point of view) between rifling through someones underwear and viewing an image on screen, we were looking for dangerous items(to the aircraft) what was in the case wasn't interesting. The same would apply to the image.

With hindsight, what now worried me is the amount of muslim asians that are employed in this field, please don't mis-understand, the old cliche applies, not all muslims are terrorists but it does appear that all terrorists are or claim to be muslim.

Also I WAS vetted and received a certificate that was recognized by other security firms and airlines.

Just seen it

I've just watched this film, and it was frightening just how much the Los Angeles police could get away with.

I know that this - true - story took place in the '30s but even so, it doesn't seem to be that much of a stretch for something similar happening here

MW2? No thanks

I canceled my pre-order as soon as I found out that there were no dedicated servers which is shame as I was really looking forward to it. I've ordered HOMEFRONT instead, I believe it's due out in March

Thumb Up

Telewest/Blueyonder

I've been with VM since the old Telewest days, and can honestly say I've never had a problem.

On my return from holiday I found that my old Surfboard modem had died, 48 hours later I had a new modem.
