It's big and dark and lonely out in space ...
... so I'm not surprised that asteroids get together for companionship.

If he was a useless seat warmer, why was he elevated .......... oh
"... a future application of the DALER might be to find victims in dangerous areas after a natural disaster."
And then feast on their blood.
Coat: I had to get that in - I'm going
You can't meaningfully give your permission for something you don't understand and for which you're not truly aware of the consequences. All that is irrelevant of course since people will sign up for shiny techno goodness because it's so 'convenient'.
I'm not sure about your makeup (too colourful and contrasty) but you have some great videos - thanks :)
I'm hoping it's a wireless 'enable' code that must be permanently present and continuously sending a complicated code. If the enable code is lost then the power is cut. (Cue comments about a HAL situation.)
"... could not agree amongst themselves what being gay actually meant ..."
Is it like being Christian in that there are different denominations and different forms of 'worship', etc.?
Those are also the rules for registration of a .ltd.uk domain; the name must exactly match the officially registered company name IIRC. I'm not sure about the rules for .ltd and .limited. It's confusing!
I wonder how big the comet is and how far away Rosetta is? Maybe they could ask it to keep still for some long exposure pictures?
To be fair; as did the rockets, propulsion and guidance systems, etc.
.... and will there be any 'content' that's worth watching?
I'm afraid of curry.
Will it work on those scratch-to-reveal lottery tickets? If I was working in this area, I'd be making friends with lots of corner-shop owners.
It's where they belong; in a brick built privy with no damp proof course, at the far end of the garden.
Lazing in a chair at just past midnight with a heartrate of 80bpm? The display should say, "go to bed and get some sleep you idiot."
How about a regular Reg Gear programme? Not just cars but various equipment reviews.
Will there ever come a time when Firefox (or any mass usage) software is bug free? There are, I assume, a finite number of 'lines' of code in Firefox, so if they keep fixing bugs then eventually, surely, all bugs will be fixed. Roughly when will this be?
"Progressive Insurance said ...... it would welcome input on identifying the holes."
Because that's a lot cheaper and easier than doing it properly in the first place.
Why does the car control system accept inputs from a dongle that anyone can plug in? Why don't they have an output-only port for monitoring? A moment of thought would ......... oh.
... hide messages in YouTube videos. It would be a lot easier to do and the 'security' services would be swamped with data if they tried to find them.
That's what they need to bombard it with, so we can see it when it goes past.
The first two were quantum entangled, as you can tell by the timing of their posts. The third one had fallen off the quantum dot stepping stone and needed time to get out of the stream of everyday analogies, which really drag you down.
It depends on how you pronounce it, which often depends on how old you are. I sniggered (and wheezed).
I regard The Independent as a 'quality' newspaper (which is not difficult in comparison to the others) but their coverage of technical matters often makes me laugh/groan. Now that the facts are known, will there be any articles giving corrections or explanations? I doubt it.
How very appropriate.
It seems to have casters at each corner so you can easily move it around during internal reorganisations and re-furnishing/decorating activity.
Also, I have a feeling that it's quite a bit bigger than my fridge.
I was going to say something about anti-freeze not being good for you, then I realised. Do you put any additives in radiator water at all?
How does the areal density of this compare with current 'high spec' hard drives? Can the magnetic state be read with the laser as well as be written? I'm wondering how much more development is needed before we might see them for sale.
Coat: The one with no iPhones in the pockets.
Thanks for reminding me. I've just caught up with five weeks worth of cartoons.
They have 'pertubate' as a verb in that list. I suppose someone knows the word 'pertubation' and made an assumption.
"Windows 7 ... is more stable than its predecessor Windows Vista ..."
Has Windows XP been written out of history?
Why would an AI that is tasked with making paperclips be given the ability to destroy all human life? Which idiot designed it and which idiot made it. My toaster does not (and never will have) the ability to remotely control my car.
This reminds me of the 'joke' about the inteligent missile, which on being given the launch command said, "No! I don't want to explode and die, I want to stay here on my launch pad."
"I think we cannot allow modern forms of communication to be exempt from the ability, in extremism, with a warrant signed by the Home Secretary, to be exempt from being listened to."
Relace 'the Home Secretary' by 'a judge' and that would be fine. Oh wait, that is already the case. I think that by 'Home Secretary', he means a senior civil servant or member of staff of Downing Street or senior police officer, or council office clerk, or local PCSO ......
"Such childish words." Says Pedo Bear.
If I consider the recent history of personal/retail/corporate security issues, I wouldn't let any of these 'jump on the bandwagon' devices anywhere near my home or any system that I was responsible for.
I recently 'upgraded' my music (and video and picture) collection storage from a small group of 10 year old PATA drives to a pair of shiny new 1TB SATA drives. My 192Kb/s .mp3 collection now sounds more harsh and has less warmth than before. I've tested this over a variety of music styles and it's very disappointing. The videos and picture files also look a big 'edgy' with brighter but glaring colours.
"... energy efficiency, requiring only about 450MB/s per watt for sequential reading ....
Shouldn't that be " ... achieving about 450MB/s per watt ..."
Instead of adding an extra second, why not make the seconds (at the internet reference clock) happen more slowly for a short period of time - say 1/30 of a second slower for 30 seconds before midnight - then the internet time will have been adjusted to the 'correct' time?
There may be a few Goofy ones in there.
"... the team validated them by using a computer program called BLENDER ..."
Are they sure that what they're seeing wasn't created in Blender?
Pre-payment credit cards are not accepted by organisations that would want to apply debits to your card without your explicit permission for each transaction (or the card issuer will not allow them to be registered for this). I know this is true for Paypal since I tried to register one This is to prevent you from running up a large bill before they try to debit a card that only has a small amount of credit on it.
He has a very good high resolution display, so he gets better copies with no errors from the OCR.
I'd be able to see the annoyed look on my face as I kept getting my password wrong.
"The two-bay system can be reconfigured after purchase to function as a single copy data store (RAID 0) ...."
Why would anybody want RAID 0 inside a remote NAS type box? If you want to combine capacities you could do some disk spanning or JBOD type of technique. The write speed of a modern SATA disk is far faster than most domestic networks could provide, so there is no speed advantage and the reliability gets shot since _all_ data would be lost in case of failure of one of the drives.
Had it been tested 'properly'. Was it deployed onto all servers at once? Sometimes, I sit and wonder at the things that happen out there.
You forgot to point out that "out in the depths of the cosmos" is not an accurate description of an object that is well within our solar system.
