"The mammoth funding ..."
It's an elephant.
You can't adjust the focus by changing the screen contents. You'd need the appropriate changes to the buillt-in lenses to take account of your own prescription.
P.S. I just had a look at one of their You Tube videos:
Much of it is out of focus. I'm not sure if that is significant.
Maybe they should outource the justice system to a country with a low wage but skilled workforce and put them on zero-hours contracts? That would get the costs down.
It's a marvellous achievement and I'm wondering if the acrylic had any special surface treatment to make it more 'acceptable' to the reattached scalp or if it's just ordinary acrylic material.
You could have a drone with three/four small balloons attached along its fuselage. Has anyone tried this technique?
" ...we started using cloud email in the 1990s ..."
I thought the 'cloud' was a shiny and new thing.
"with Microsoft Office Professional 2010 and Trend antivirus installed and licensed, at $50.00 per month."
That's like hiring a car and then being told that part of the hire cost is the rental fee for extra secure locks and a car alarm. What's wrong with MSE? (rhetorical question).
You'd be foolish not to accept and applaud these essential security updates.
You can always press F11 to go full screen in Firefox, then cursor to the top and right click the revealed bar to exit full screen.
I know what you mean though, which is why I love to use my 8 year old Acer laptop with 15" 4:3 matte screen (running Linux Mint).
... the reasons for rejected requests. If a request is agreed, then I assume the matter is a valid law enforcement or security agency query which ought not to be revealed. However, if a request was made then Google shot it down, they should be free to reveal what the request was. e.g. The police wanted to know if (name redacted) had been watching cat videos, etc. This would help use to know the subjects which concern our overlords and hence we can stop doing them.
MATE, XFCE and LXDE all have multiple desktops/workspaces. I thought this was a standard Linux thing? Or is it because they're all Gnome 2.x derivatives?
I think every country should ban Twitter (and/or Facebook) at least once a year. That way, the people will learn how fragile their 'essential service' is and will also learn how to use VPNs, TOR, etc. One way to 'sell' this to government would be to explain that it would increase 'national resilience' (a good thing) in case the country comes under cyber attack (a bad thing).
It's 'Sir Jonathon (call me Jony)'.
"This legislation is designed ..."
This is not legislation. It's recommendations for possible future action by a recognised set of professional bodies. You may have been influenced by the use of the words, "... sanctions that are proportionate to the nature of the offence ..."; which seems to be about an offence to professional standards, not an offence in law.
Sadly, the law lags behind the development of techniques in many areas of scientific development, especially information technology and data processing. Also, the companies that stand to make lots of money from this have access to politicians and senior civil servants; hence they can influence the law, or lack of it.
It would be even worse than my bi-weekly shopping experience.
I think the 'All You Can Eat' specifically does not allow tethering, but the 'One Plan' does allow tethering.
Maybe the astronauts will use strips of coloured insulation tape to customise them? That's what I'd do :)
Don't forget to buy some virtual slug pellets to deal with the razor-toothed slugs or a virtual shotgun for the flocks of pesky birds, or a virtual assault rifle to take care of the ravaging zombie hordes that will stumble towards you muttering, "Straaaaawberries".
A Psychopath doesn't WANT to kill everyone, it's just that if they do kill anyone then they have no bad feelings about it. Hence, they find it easy to kill if it makes 'logical' sense to them. On a more everyday level, they treat people very badly and have no qualms about it.
" ... the fashionable bokeh that keeps the subject of the picture in focus and blurs the background, or vice versa."
There's more to bokeh than that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh
It's a multi-tabbing text editor with many features and facilities and much better that Notepad. I used it under Windows for a long time before I switched to Linux last year and it's free for non-commercial use.
I assume that you'll have at least a couple of networked colour printers taken care of? For kids especially, it's exciting to see their work on-screen become printed out onto paper they can take home and keep and show to people.
Are there any professional organisations, or even informal forums that are discussing and dealing with these situations? Unless your computers are connected to the internet, simple and sensible internal security practices shoud keep them safe, I'd have thought.
I have an 8 year old retail XP-SP2 install disk that's never been activated, that I could sell to you if you want to have a 'retro' experience ....?
Has anybody tried using hydraulic motors and fitting the robot with an IC engine/compressor and fluid reservoir, etc? This is totally not my area but I understand that hydraulic motors have a greater power density that electric motors and they are tough and reliable.
Thank you for writing 'nanoWales' and not 'NanoWales'.
Will GCHQ/NSA have backdoor access so they can keep our herds safe from terrorists?
Did I misread the article or did the first two questions not actually get answered?
Over the past three years, I've had Android updates to an HTC phone and to a Nexus 4. I've never had to reinstall any of my many apps, though a few have insisted on being updated after the update. Is that what you mean by 'reinstall'?
It's been done many times. e.g:
Is it a www-arse nowadays?
I had to use Wikipedia to learn that HHVM stands for Hip Hop Virtual Machine. Even the HHVM.com site doesn't tell you what it means.
According to Wikipedia, it was open-sourced in 2010.
Governing party interests are an entirely different thing, added to the mix.
I get confused by all these scientific words.
Is that horizontal x vertical? For each eye or shared between left and right?
I see your humour and raise you an upvote.
""The government must never make a similar mistake. Public access to public sector data must never be sold or given away again."
Start laughing (in a cynical and weary manner).
It's lack of jubular cover that's the problem. I wonder when 'jubular' will make it into the Oxford English Dictionary?
The analogy has a built in assumption that I (as someone looking to get from A to B) am the property of a particular group of taxi drivers and that my money rightfully should be used to buy the services of particular taxi drivers. That is an attitude I strongly disgaree with.
I thought this was an observation of distant possible effects that very closely match theoretical predictions - not a true "detection" as such. The detection would be made (if ever) by those very long interferometers with laser beams at right angles to each other, where the compression of space by a passing gravitational wave would be 'detected'?
All my spreadsheets were fully available to me. They are stored on my domestic local network and automatically backed up twice a day with a 10 day rolling record (on a separate device). I also have a separate copy on an ftp server in a geographically remote location (which I try to remember to update regularly). What is this cloud thing they keep talking about?
I wonder what I'd get for it on e-bay?
"We told the new guy that the next iPhone will have a moisture sensor. Now it's all over that Chinese tech-news blog. Shall we fire him?"
"No, tell him we're developing a Bitcoin wallet. We can have fun for ages."
.. has 'demobilise' been a new word and since when has it been spelled with a '-ize' ending?
... "support us and give us a good deal on Win8, or we'll switch to Linux." ?
I'm sure than two pins are required for charging.
Wouldn't the other fish think it was a bit .... fishy?
No. A senior government minister asks the head of GCHQ (or similar), "Have you been breaking the law?". He answers, "No, of course not.". This is then converted into officialese and stated by the minister in parliament. It's a much better system than in the USA because there's not as much fuss and shouting. We hate fuss and shouting.
Apart from the word 'commutative' not really being applicable to copying and deleting data, the answer is "it depends". The simplest answer is that you change a pointer entry in a directory structure, if you're moving a file to be on the same logical hard drive on your home PC. After that, it can get quite complicated.
I decide when Pie day is. (As often as possible.)
(beer: goes well with Pie, or pasties.)
... did Kristina Libby have to register this domain herself, at GoDaddy? Why didn't the mighty Microsoft corporate machine take care of that for her? Is it also hosted by GoDaddy?
