If I can get one of these in the UK without fin about
I think I might go for some of it.
There are actually quite a lot of things that could really benefit from simple multiprocessing like this. And they're already out there. And they're not Office of any form.
It might say that in the small print
but I doubt MS will ever really stop supporting ie6 and activex for those that might possibly go to the other side.
I've seen a lot of these ie6 activex apps that could be re-written in an afternoon by someone with a bit of experience but as the support for them continues then the budget will never be made available.
Its quite simple - the lock in is there and unless the government makes it illegal to continue supporting these things they will live forever. Probably a lot longer than the systems they run on can survive against virii.
Re: And why is this a problem, again?
Its not a problem, never has been. Not unless you want to use someone else work without their permission.
For over a hundred years no-one had a right to use your work without permission. Now it seems they have a right unless you have a fucking great network of office staff and lawyers keeping tabs on all your work.
This law basically says the individual or small company have no real rights.
There is no such thing as a copyright work any more, just institutions that manage them.
Re: Ironic Punishment - use MIRRORS
I think that would be more like proof the target had been hit!
However those rear total internal reflectors (like you should have on your bike so pedestrians know where to gesticulate to) would be better and make the plane well pretty!
Best ever headphones I heard
were some electrostatics I made. Never did find a decent cable that would cope with 1kV AND frenetic air guitar - or kettle drumming on occasion.
Are there any decent hi-fi shops anywhere these days - everywhere I go seems to be limited to a brand or two - no chance of real comparisons.
Re: There aren't any
Its nothing to do with scaring of the casual viewer. These things are sold abroad now in preparation for the loss of license fee and so the larger audience now consists of couch omega3 free substitute potatoes.
It wasnt a sinclair or an apple
There seems to be a lot of circumcisional* evidence that it was Archimedes what done it.
And while we're on the subject how did his folks know to call him 'top thinker'?
*like circumstantial but possibly quite close to bollocks.
IIRC this was used in WW2 radar technology - you cant swing a bunch of 200 foot radio towers round easily.
But of course its 'applied to a mobile device' which makes it revolutionary.
Having said that best of luck to them.
Somethat dissapointed to discover
this has nothing to do with Brightons reputation as a gay friendly town.
I'm taking my four machines off Ubuntu and off elsewhere
not because of this but because more and more programs are stopping working with every upgrade.
Your target audience may be the 95% but you need the 5% to at least consider not swearing when its mentioned.
But putting the language features outside the browser in the pre-compile area will mean they will probably stay there. If these features do not make it into JS then its just another case of EEE and until they do there is still the separation problem where you are debugging machine code having written a higher level code. This really does make life very difficult.
It is technically no better than coffeescript or any of the hundred of other JS 'compilers' put there and I am not looking forward to have to try and maintain huge chunks of undocumented code spewed out by them.
You may have got the impression they want to help but they happily threw away millions of lines of silverlight code rather than opening it up and now this???
Not exactly rocket science
or blue sky research.
That whale beached (by the looks of it) because it was pretty much starved to death. It didn't get lost.
Mind you it probably starved to death because sonar and other technology helped deplete the oceans of its (and our) food source.
and then add them to a sold product.
At least I'm assuming that's what's been going on since MS started helping in the standards group.
How much of this was in JS2.0 7 years ago?
And what about miscreants with a power-grinder? 115kv hitting the floor will fry the fibre optics anyway.
Republican women have to be pretty
So republican men can recognise them as sex objects.
Re: Not Needed
but in a lot of the US you cant even hang your washing in the back yard
Its the American 'work' ethic. When I've worked in the states 12 hours minimum in the office every day or you are a slacker. Productivity - which is generally lower in extended periods of long working hours than a 40hweek - is not taken into account.
Nothing gets done because you have all day not to do it - I find a similar thing with working from home. Go into a shitty office for a few hours and I can get two days work done and be off. Its easy to do if you have a good manager - so in IT your fucked.
Made a non voice controlled one many years ago
you cant be accurate with popcorn over any reasonable distances - and this thing is within arm reach and you could have got a good fistfull and be back reclining faster than this delivered.
I am however selling a voice controlled disruptor air jet for anyone in an office who has a colleague who purchases one....
Re: Apple fail Muppets
with the highly insecure encryption you've just backdated to they'll be hacked into oblivion by then.
The Kaaba has a big one
meteorite that is.
Re: Gravitational fogging
So there is a sphere beyond which it matters not a jot what is there - as it will not have any effect at all on anything we can observe?
The trick is they're not really accelerating way - the universe is expanding so things are getting further away but no energy is required... sort of a mathematical pint too many - the bar hasn't moved but its just a lot harder to get to.
Well it was - they're not so sure now...
Re: This story smply illustrates ...
Nothing to do with thieves:
Sensible person finally cracking under lack of expected activity: Why haven't your cornered me and shown me all the amazing new facilities of that iPhone you spent all night queueing for?
Fanbois:(thinks: my chihuahua is too small to have swallowed this massive disappointment) I was mugged and it was stolen (uses PC to locate 'Will it blend').
Re: Don't Bother
Evolution only works for those less stupid than a nanobe.
Given an average density of matter in the universe how far back in time could we see before the intermediate objects gravitational effects reduced the image to a 3K fog?
A deep frozen collection of ones sperm could be used ala "A policeman from Clapham Junction"
It should be added that castration does not necessarily remove erectile function - merely the normal means for ending it and inducing snoring.
Re: Who's supposed to be paying for this?!
They don't need botnets to do this - just 'production facilities'. Seems to make a lot more than £100k a day.
Not as much as completely useless banking in the UK mind.
Re: Agree with Sky on this one
Yes I'm sure Sky fucked it up purely for technical reasons. I cant see any financial benefit for them for pissing freeview viewers about at all can you?
"No set-top box allows filtering or navigation by - insert standard of choice that might work but the big money wont allow to happen here."
I often wondered why TV filtering etc was so 1970's - it seems its something to do with letting the fox have a major way in henhouse design.
Re: "massive costs"
I think you'll find that the same 'unexpected' costs that make this project uneconomical will also make nuclear uneconomical.
Its the same accounting that turned a £4B Olympics into £9B (so far) one - the knowledge that the taxpayer will have to come in and cover the 'unexpected' costs which are of two kinds: things people have missed and things people know the project cannot be completed without. In the case of the Orkney project it cannot survive without the cables connecting it to the mainland so the charges for that have suddenly doubled.In the case of nuclear it seems its a fantastically cheap way of generating electricity until you take into account the insurance which, when done by those that would have to pay if the public didn’t cover it, seem to be a lot higher than if the public is expected to cover it while shareholders laugh all the way to the bank. If nuclear really is so cheap then why does private finance not leap at the chance of the massive profits on offer - perhaps they do the same maths the insurance companies do but hope politicians wont.
This probably costs less than the adobe typesetting program for publishing the lecturers compulsory book in hardback form, which will immediately be out of date as any students that actually buy a copy will be performing the task of proofreading.

I wonder how many periods there are in history where we have stood at the foot of the next mountain range of intellectual progress and taken one step back to wallow in the warm cow pat of stupidity.
And now Fox news is calling for Assanges assassination...
Cant think why he wants to stay in an embassy for the rest of his life.
Oh yeah that's it - life.
Rogue employee? No - directors are not an employees.
dont know about the maths but your english is shit.
