Well, they are "s" holes, but in the olden days, "s" was written like "f", so that's the explanation.
// fo full of bullfhit it'f not funny...
Of course, the downside is, that since it's China, if you get caught, that was one mighty expensive bullet to the back of the head.

Total bunk. I use "zip cord", regular 2-conductor, stranded AC line cord, for my speakers. They sound just fine. It's 18AWG with a DC resistance of .04 ohms/meter. 2 meter cables have a series resistance of 1% of the speaker impedance. Skin effect at 20kHz is non-existent. I don't even know what "conductor non-linearity" is, but I bet it's undetectable..
In a good conductor electrons travel millimeters per second.
Anyone who had attended one of the late RADM Grace Hopper's lectures knows that electricity travels about a foot in a nanosecond.
You do, I'm sure, realize that TPB hosts nothing, except pointers to trackers which act as connection points for people wanting to share?
TPB is two levels of indirection away from the actual stuff being shared.
In the US, it's called a "third party billing block" and I've activated it on all my accounts.
Just call your carrier and tell them to put one on your account. it shouldn't cost anything.
...take a picture of him nude and post it online...
Oh, please don't!
That would punish us more than him, if the rest of him is as ugly as his mug.
If m'lud was a customer (or a former customer), I wouldn't discount the possibility.
It's not just the government -- the NFL refs can't even spot an underinflated football until it's pointed out to them.

Would it help if we all sent a nice email and some donuts to the FAA?
I can see the headlines now..."Mysterious White Powder In Package Sent to FAA"
And you thought Spanish bureaucracy was slow...
OK when he does it to you (or, at least, if you object, you're told it's to keep you safe)
Now that the shoe's on the other foot (or the drone's in the his back yard), it's an outrage not to be tolerated.

Where can I volunteer to be an adult?
Don't bother, it's no fun...better to remain a kid as long as you can :-)
Funny about title choices on forms -- we went on a cruise recently. My son paid for his own cabin, and consequently, filled out his own form. Being of a certain nature (wonder where he got that from?), and noticing that one option for title was "Captain" (and having been a Captain in the Army), he selected that. All his mails from the cruise company were addressed to "Captain..."
Enjoyed the Hodges book immensely. Glad to hear it's accurate.
And yes, in the absence of a Turing Museum, the notebook belongs at Bletchley, or the Science Museum, but preferably Bletchley, since that's where (and about which) it was written.
As a gesture of our deep respect for your Dear Leader, please accept this gold plated USB key, containing some of our best porn.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
I'm not a fan of Unity (or Ubuntu for that matter)...
Try Mint MATE. I used to be a big Ubuntu fan, but then they went down the Unity path and I went looking for something more traditional. Mint seems to be it.
hard to tell what part of the dog they'd been made with, i'm guessing lullock (a blend of lung and bollocks)
Snouts and testicles.

So nice of Mariott to be concerned about rogue wi-fi hotspots!
(especially when it helps their bottom line)

For her birthday a few years ago, I gave my techie daughter...The Internet.
She has it on her desk at work...occasionally, someone will recognize it.

If you are so religious you can't stand people poking fun at some of the more outlandish acts done in your deity's name, perhaps it's time to take a closer look at what you believe and why.
Tolerance has to work both ways.
Nous sommes tous Charlie.
// I'm nominally Christan, and I like the cover of the Jew, the Pope and the Muslim all yelling that Charlie Hebdo must be veiled.
No, as any frothing-at-the-mouth redneck Christian fundamentalist will tell you, the bible is literally the word of God.
Ah, yes. Surprising, though, the number of fundamentalists who daily violate the Lord's explicit instructions and allow witches, sodomites, harlots and unbelievers to go about their daily business. Not to mention their lack of the required burnt animal sacrifices to the Lord (barbecue pulled pork, I believe, doesn't qualify)
I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that fundamentalist religion...*any* fundamentalist religion, is a Bad Thing.
Nous sommes tous Charlie.
What do you expect from a society that won't let women drive cars.
Ah...but it's for their own good. You know, to protect them.
"smart enough not to shut the engine off if the car's in motion"
Hopefully with a way to over-ride that, for when the computer has locked the engine in top speed and won't respond to anything else.
That's what the "EJECT" button's for.
What happens when someone who learned on that automatic handbrake system then drives a car without it and tries to do a hill start?
That's when they begin to really learn to drive a manual shift car :-)
...passionate about women's underwear.
Passionate about removing it, perhaps...
But good on ya, mates, for doing this. I suspect quality IT help is hard to find in that corner of Australia. Nice of El Reg to help out.
Edit: just googled Willowra. It's miles from anywhere. Best of luck.
Good means different things to different people. You get passable coffee out of it at the push of a button and avoid all the prep and clean up work. My wife's a teacher, so this is how she jump-starts her morning at 6 AM.
So, for her, good is defined as convenience. One cup of coffee, no muss, no fuss. I completely agree that there are better ways (environmentally, costwise and qualitywise) to make coffee.
Oh, and the hack is essentially cutting the top off a used DRM k-cup and taping it to the top of your preferred non-k-cup. Not much effort required. And if you have some favorite coffee that hasn't paid Keurig's tax, you can still enjoy it. I tried it just to verify that it worked, which it does.
Not that I'm a fan of DRM, but the Keurig 2.0 cups are optically sensed, not RFID. And defeating it is easy-peasy, as a Google search will reveal.
Disclaimer: the wife loves hers, but her Nespresso seems to be her preferred machine, lately
Guess that's what they get for believing the Chinese copies were "just as good as" the real Cisco kit...
Just saw an announcement that Sony has retained David Boies...
And, now that recreational marijuana use is legal in Colorado, there's a second reason.
Envious. Jealous, even. Mine never made it to my doorstep...perhaps someone in US Customs is toasting LOHAN's success with it?
Surprised nobody has commented on it.
Yeah, well, they were writin' more important stuff on it back then, weren't they?
You really think anyone is going to want to read your boss's emails in a thousand years?
(well, maybe they would, if only for the comic value)
The attractive thing about Pirate Bay, is that you can find anything you're looking for there.
If there were a legitimate version of TPB, I'd happily pay $20/month, or even $30/month to be a member. But Netflix has seasons 1, 3 and 6 of any given show available, only during months with an "R" in the name, or some such silliness, and when I want to watch a 1940s movie, they're nowhere to be found. And for that, I pay $10/mo.
So yeah, I'm annoyed Pirate Bay is down. I don't mind paying for content, I just want it to be available when I feel like watching it. Pirate Bay does that. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and the big media companies haven't yet caught on.
Now, repeat after me:
"It's good to be King!"
I think that may be my retirement job.

Ice works because it changes phase. Rocks don't.
They do if you heat them hot enough :-)
Calibre for converting eBook formats, works well, very useful

HandBrake because it will convert any movie to play on my iPhone
VLC because it will play any video, period.

I offer this timely piece of French literature in tribute:
Thanks for the article. It proves that serious car building is not dead (and that WWII surplus is STILL not exhausted!)
Well done, and thanks for the pictures. Drive safely, wouldn't want anything to happen to that beautiful piece of machinery.
Out hiking in the semi-backwoods of Maine, I climbed to the top of a modest hill and there, in a bowl before me, stood the radome that used to cover the Telstar ground station in Andover ME. It is still in use, for other satellites.
I went on an excursion from summer camp in the late 60s to see it, and remember clearly entering the radome to look at the receiving horn antenna.

Oh, yes , yes it most certainly *is*.
