It took a while for the bank to notice
It seems that neither she nor the bank live in the real world.

It seems that neither she nor the bank live in the real world.
It'll take about a week to heal so no jolly rogering for a while.
As far as I'm aware, in the UK, calls from a mobile to a 'standard' landline and other mobile networks are the same. (Having said that, I'm on a contract with a fixed number of minutes a month.) I know that some mobile networks offer discounted or 'free' minutes for calls on PAYG within their own network.

There is a legal requirement to give equal opportunities regardless of religious belief and sexual orientation. Also, as a publicly funded body, the NHS has made commitments to these principles. How can they prove that they have given equal opportunities, for compliance checks and flag waving? Simple: they note, record, analyse, (and publish) these data metrics about their staff.
(However, I have a feeling that if you said that you're a pansexual Pastafarian, your career wouldn't go very far.)
Sounds more like a farting sound to me.
“We can't force them to make these changes, but we can educate them.”
You can force them, in new versions, but that might drive them away.
Free, permissive licence, many users, lots of forums; what's not to like? Oh, wait a minute, what's this security thing?
That looks like the foreground to me.
Have you tried turning it off and then on again?
Like an abstract work of art.
"In a separate statement, the company's founder and CEO Thurman Rogers has announced he will step down from the role, saying that the board and executive staff have urged him to “bring new blood” into the company."
That sounds like polite code for being kicked out.
"... I delegate .com, .net, country codes and the few .info sites that are criminal so all these other domains effectively don't exist."
Did you mean to say "... that are not criminal ..."?
.... to prevent this in the future:
"... which caused the car company to recall 1.4 million vehicles for a software upgrade ..."
I heard about this idea somewhere.
That could be a good model name for some kind of autonomous sexual stimulation device. I'm sure there'd be some suing going on but that could add to the general excitement.
Why did it take them so long to notice the breach of 'conflict-of-interest policies' regarding her husband, son and daughter in law? Is it that you're allowed a certain level of corruption (a level which you're never told the exact value) and then get smacked for everything when you go above a certain amount?
The university authorities need a good smacking for allowing all this to happen.
Time in any other universes doesn't matter in our universe. I don't have enough space to explain why.
For a broken/fallen utility pole, can't they send a pulse down the line, using simple portable equipment, then note the timing/distance of the large reflection caused by the break?
"... a €2.4m EU research grant to crack open embedded software on... e-bikes."
Might it not be cheaper and quicker to hire 'consultancy' expertise (and sight of the source code) from the companies that make them?
If the good Professor will be having influence over future standards and regulations, the manufacturers should be fighting each other to get to him first.
"TopShop has worked on the program with L Marks, which created start-up incubator JLab for high-street giant John Lewis three years ago."
They have a track record in this area. What did they achieve in three years; does anyone know?
It's amazing, the 'tax efficient' arrangements you can make when you're rich.
I loved Win XP. It was made useless (on my old laptop) by an amazingly large set of updates just before Win 7 was released, so I got a new laptop with Win 7. When I read about Win8, I switched to Linux Mint 13 because I didn't want to get caught again. With the MATE desktop, I made an XP look/feel setup on my old laptop that ran well.
Can anyone suggest why I'd want to buy a device running Windows (apart from obvious things like being committed to Photoshop, etc)?
Oh no, I forgot the joke icon.
"BeautifulPeople told Forbes passwords and financial data were not at risk and claimed to have notified all affected users."
We should wait for an El Rel commentard to confirm that they have received a notification email and tell us how reassuring it is (or not). We certainly won't get this from an El Reg staffer.
I always suspected that all those particles were in it together. It took a massive effort by CERN to flush them out into the open where we could see them and understand what they were up to.
"... this release is the first to allow you to move the Unity launcher to the bottom of the screen."
I laughed when I read that. (Long term MATE user here.)
Does the owner of land have any kind of salvage rights over objects that fall on it?
Indeed. What could possibly go wrong?
I assume that anyone who was registered with such a sensitive site would use a false username, a unique password and access it via the Tor network.
Is it ok to get a couple of his albums from the torrents now. I'm never sure about the etiquette for these situations.
Is that because it's too cold at this time of year? Oh wait, I'm thinking about olive oil wrestling, again.
"(and if photons were truly 'massless', gravity would not affect them)"
Gravity, caused by the presence of matter, makes space itself curved and so a photon follows the curvature of space as it travels. The question is, has anyone performed experiments on trapped photons to determine if they are affected by gravity (attracted to matter) when they are fairly stationary?
If you're equating the energy of a photon to an 'effective mass' via an e=mc^2 equivalence, then you'd have a situation in which X-ray photons have a larger effective mass than light photons and hence should be deflected more by gravity.
I'll wait for the next commentard to add to this thread by explaining why I'm wrong.
Some retail pack SSD's come with a stick on plastic spacer so they can have a snug fit in 2.5" laptop bays.
I did what you said, "How to make Ubuntu 15.10 look good", and there were two results. Your comment was the first result and an article in quora.com was the second one. There were no results from a YouTube search.
Ahhhhhh, it's called "Make Ubuntu 15.10 look good". Did Andy Turfer change the title?
Mint 17.3 (released January 2016, based on Ubuntu 14.04) is LTS until April 2019. Mint 18 (to be released May/June 2016, based on Ubuntu 16.04) will be LTS until 2021. It's a bit close and a big overlap.
I got Mint 17.3 installed and hammered into shape at the end of January. After that exercise I'm going to wait at least a year before trying Mint 18.
(I was quite happy for three years running Mint 13 which is LTS until April 2017.)
I want to know more about olive oil wrestling. I have an unopen bottle of olive oil in my kitchen.......
I was confused for a moment, because I have Insync on my computers. This is not the same as InSync and, in fact, the Druva poduct is not called InSync; it is called inSync as can be seen from their website. I hope that clarifies the naming situation.
So all we can say is that it needs more research. Friday afternoon would be a good time for that.
It's using hands, with a sea of xHamsters that's the problem.
"Do the gorgeous locks growing from my butt speak to a subconscious hatred of women?"
Depends if you trim them into a goatsee shape.
A beard (even a short one) is great for keeping the winter wind off your facial skin.
"Dick Smith, the man, is now 72. He used his loot to fund aviation adventures, a made-in-Australia food venture and is a prominent philanthropist, environmental and political activist."
If I had just £1 million, I'd settle down into a very comfortable and obscure retirement. I've come to realise that this is why I'll never have anything near £1 million to retire with.
"if you rely on obscurity to hide your things, you're going to get f***ing owned,” ..."
Is klD2h8P73j5F54sh2.theregister.co.uk going to be compromised anytime soon?
If so, I'll stop using it to store my stuff.
Also, wouldn't damages awarded in any legal action depend on the harm that thad been caused to the plaintiff? If a plaintiff can be harmed by the truth being told about them, perhaps the jury would decide that they didn't deserve any 'damages'?
I think the waste storage volume should be isolated from the inner wall and be lower than the internal floor level.
You can't get anything smaller than a Quark but you need three of them to make anything that matters.
(Coat: The one with lots of small things in the pocket.)
Can you dumb it down a bit? Just a little.
By the time it gets there, we'll have developed FTL travel and will be waiting for it, with flags waving and a band playing.
From oxforddictionaries.com, available at an internet near you:
verb (trials, trialling, trialled; US trials, trialing, trialed)
1 [with object] Test (something, especially a new product) to assess its suitability or performance: 'teachers all over the UK are trialling the materials'
(The world changes and we must keep up with it or become lost, or annoyed, or both.)
It sounds like a good idea. If one of them dies, or refuses to open the pod bay doors, the other two can seamlessly take over.
