Let's launch a neodymium magnet satellite built with thrusters which are designed to guide it (and anything stuck to it) into the atmosphere in 2 years time.
Bagsy it lands in my back garden so I can claim the scrap
it was channeling the spirit of a Vel Satis
oh no, there's this really dangerous thing that's in a place you didn't think of
And the thing you thought was dangerous isn't
We can help you fix that and only for a medium amount of money
still lamenting http://www.sagetv.com/
I wrote to my MP outlining why it's a ridiculous piece for the government to be cocking about with
(I even persisted in the consultation piece even though it was a disaster)
I got a 'won't someone think of the children' reply, seems to be the common response in all things from this government, how could anyone possibly not want to protect children from nasty things.
In other news I saw a report about a parent having to skip meals just so they could put a bowl of soup in front of their child due to cost of living overtaking salaries
Won't someone think of the children
Fucking government is the shits
New Machine comes into the house
Remove all the crud, patch to latest everything
create to-the-metal disk image on home file server across network
set up weekly scheduled backup to home file server across network
give to whoeveritisthatneedsit
willing to bet
that something as simple as dialectizer breaks this let alone getting technical
Yeah, make sure they feature match the rest of the list as well
The ICO has an implementation of this live right now
See how nice it looks? /sarcasm
See how it fails gracefully when you click Continue without ticking the box /sarcasm
I like a bit of sarcasm
i think the ICO are doing us a favour by showing how crud it is, shame they dont sell stuff or carry advertising
Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start
good, cos I'm frikken sweltering
Another load of crap from people who are clueless
Puts netcard into promiscuous mode, goes to jail
Makes website drop a cookie, goes to jail
Does a cartoon of a tiger and a laaaydeeey, goes to jail
I hope someone, somewhere is writing a list
get off your arse, you techie agoraphobic
commenting on here is going to do nothing
Write to your MP suggesting they stop listening to these nutters
DO IT NOW!
Yeah, swearing, that's the fucking priority aint it
ah, found them...
obviously, but what *IS* an HPC ?
I've got something running on a 980x, are we talking bigger than that?
I was lost
The Hasty Pudding Cipher ?
wtf is an HPC ?
It's blatantly obvious
that any mechanism that can be implimented will immediately be bypassed by 14 year old boys in their bedroom on a PC that their parents think is 'safe'.
The knowledge of how to (offshore VPN a connection) will immediately be shared and passed around to lots and lots of other 14 year old and younger and the whole mechanism will be rendered redundant withing 2 weeks.
The only people left being filtered will be the parents, who should have known better in the first place
I'd suggest contracting a VPN in the Ukraine, or using Tor
People who think this kind of filtering is a good idea are damning themselves to having to learn about stuff they've got no hope of understanding if they think they can stop little Johnny from looking at porn with ISP filtering
might say that the ICO are toothless and that the fine is tiny and inconsistent to the crime committed
Others might think that by not wringing the parasite dry there might be some cash in the assets which will be distributed amongst the wasted costs claimants which Judge Birss has opened the way for
fsck the title
This is gonna be awesome
it's because no one actually wants 3D?
May be they realise it's just a fad pushed by tech corps as 'the next big thing'
just saying like
this can only end well
I don't like it when you draw the mouse down from the searchbox (where you left it to do some typing) and mouseover the related searches (by accident) changing the list of products you were heading for.
it'll never catch on
When will Gaikai be able to offer games to everyone, everywhere?
Gaikai's business model may be different than what you'd expect. We're not trying to offer a subscription-based service, so there's no expectation that everyone will be able to play from day one. Instead, we're powering demos of games on publisher, retailer, and associate sites. These demos will only be offered to users who meet the standards required for an awesome gaming experience. Users who don't meet these standards will never know they missed anything ... but they will help us understand where we need to add servers next. Over time, we'll be able to serve more and more demos to more and more users, across the world.
Yeah, sounds like a winner
