Re: I wouldn't
....won't someone PLEASE think of the engineers?
Re:What game was he playing?
... or wether this BMW was petrol or Diesel. What model? (My guess a 525...hard to tell from what's left). Also, was it equipped with a "Lotus" style alarm system?
Probably a cheap knock-off of this system.
Re: The Wild-West days are here again
Never mind the 10 billion price tag... try applying for planning permission for the anchor.
"admitted that the group had failed to invest properly in IT "for decades""
Are we talking punch-card level technology? Xenix 1.0 ? 8086 processors? Magnetic tape reels? or <shudder> pre-IBM technology?
Don't overlook the possibilities.
Domino's pizza deliveries... during hostage scenarios?
WHO.....organizes the school run? Won't someone PLEASE think of the children?
For me , gaming peaked with David Braben's "Frontier", and has gone downhill ever since.
If he feels that aggrieved , ship it back as defective and do a credit/debit card chargeback.
I have a bad feeling about this!
.....SkyNet? Is that you?
re:is there a photo of this invisible tank
......no need. It's the one next to the parking meter.
Re: vested interest
Hmm... Maybe the Bittorrent upstream traffic has nothing to do with piracy. I find it VERY handy when downloading and redistributing OpenSuse and Ubuntu, which, incidentally do not have DRM.
Hmmmm... <Steeples fingers> Interesting!
Not sure about the Dr Who games...
.... a certain lack of "Kill-Power" for a quake clone, methinks.
two additional points.. a little off-topic though.
1. Why has there never been an Indian Dr Who??
2. While the Games industry has been a little...er..lacklustre, there have been a few ..er Dalek pr0n films. Why has the beeb not capitalised on this?
my two cents.
Why no mention of Aer Lingus in this article? And why are all the other Uk-Irish carriers mentioned UK based? Hardly a balanced article in that respect. The only problem I have with Ryanair is that their flights are from airports way WAY out in the sticks, and after DECADES of operation, the road-rail links to the airports are
1. MASSIVELY overpriced in relation to the flight cost
2. Take a MINIMUM of half a day from even the most reasonably connected town.
Something else that would never happen in Germany.
Guess who a lot of us Irish regard as pro-European role models?

Not so much "spying envy", as ...er... Intelligence Gap... (See end credits to Dr Strangelove...Mineshaft Gap)

Re: Size estimate based on single tooth
We';re not talking about the late "Rabbit of Caerbannog" , from Monty python, killed by the "Holy hand-grenade of Antioch". Renowned for it's sharp , pointy teeth....Apparently.
More than one species has been identified by a single tooth..
Here's one with a nice picture

It's a question of trust, Art.....Basically they're saying they don't trust you.!!
As far as I know, there's very little else for them to connect to. ....apart from a future chinese-built NUCLEAR REACTOR! ( For diehard American Republicans, that's pronounced "Nucular")
Cameron may just have shot himself in the foot by ducking the privacy issue.
A LOT of grassroots support for an actual privacy tort / criminal legislation at the moment.
Facebook and google TOC's,
that recent story in the telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/10387658/Home-Office-go-home-texts-sent-to-people-with-right-to-remain.html)
... as well as speculative invoicers,
and revenge porn sites.
List goes on ... and on.
HMRC list of politicians expenses and bank accounts going public? we can only hope!
Is it appropriate for the UK to comment?
Remember the uk has NO privacy tort per se. Although there is a European directive saying there should, and the lawlords .. to use their own language are "pen-poised" to implement one, what has happened to date has been the shoe-horning of case law to allow stretching existing legislation to cover it.
In THIS particular case, there was the implied CONFIDENTIALITY of the material. In the uk, a release form at least would have to be provided before mass publication could take place. Otherwise no implied consent could be proven to have been granted.
I see a successful appeal against this result, and the judge having his port gradually watered down.
....what have the Romans ever done for us!
Would it be more interesting if..

Ah... this explains a lot!
Now I understand why my profile page on OKCupid started flashing ads for anaesthesia equipment when I was setting it up.

Maximise downtime by developing your personal interests.
... Blues Harmonica anyone?
or the violin? If you take redundancy in this climate, at least you'd have an immediately utilisable skill.
Also, can buskers be sued for defaming their ex- employers with , ie, "Ex- Nakatomi employee- please give generously" signs?

How about a Star Trek spinoff, with ships solely piloted by Mancunians or Liverpudlians?
You could also have one with Glaswegians, vs er.. people from Edinburgh?
Any other suggestions?

Re: Shame their first recourse was "the law"
Mmmm!.... Hakarl and durian fruit salad.
Personally I'd just use the products to create a Massive torrent server inside the store.
or something similar..... anyone remember that guy who broke up acrimoniously with his girlfriend, went on holiday for a few weeks expecting the house to be a tip. He returned to find the house neat and clean,except for the phone, off the hook , with a foreign sounding voice on the other end.
She'd phoned the Japanese speaking clock.

Does Martian 'elf and safety know about this? It's bad enough skangers pointing 'em at planes here, let alone flicking 'em at flying saucers. I'd love to see their risk assessment, especially if they haven't included tracking for those iridium satellites.
Flag or not, nobody's living there permanent, so meh!
Think Heinlein covered this a few times?
