Re: Up the creek without paddle...

Actually, I think you'll find it was alcohol that powered early rockets not beer.

Now that I think of it, some early rockets were built by poles in underground factories concentration camps.

But its the same with DVDs, the copyright mafiaa disable the skip buttons when the shite is playing, i.e. ads, trailers, and copyright notices.

Not that I watch it anyway, I just put the DVD in the player, go make the popcorn, get the beer from the fridge, and by that time I have missed all the shite the copyright mafia have wasted money on.

Selective Fact Finder

You've also left out the Selective Fact Finder, one of the worst I've ever worked with.

"Hi Von Krakenfart, have you completed X yet?" where X = Selective Fact Finder's latest brain fart

" Eh No, it's coded but we haven' released it yet as we've had to roll out several critical service packs to all the servers" We were also trying to fix a bug in code Selective Fact Finder wrote 20 years ago that didn't handle century leap years correctly but you don't dare highlight Selective Fact Finder failings.

Selective Fact Finder then goes to the managers meeting and wants to know what the IT people are doing because project X hasn't been finished.

And HR used to wonder why staff turnover in IT was so high.

Mine's the one with the updated CV in the pocket.

Tech war latest: Today's leather tools 'invented by NEANDERTHALS'

Field Marshal Von Krakenfart
Boffin

Re: "Modern humans seem to have entered Europe with pointed bone tools only and patent lawyers...

"Sorry Neanderthals, you can't use those lissoirs, iBone megacorp have a design patent on lissoirs with rounded corners".

This in turn lead to the extinction[1] of Neanderthal man people.

[1] In reality the Neanderthals did not die out completely, and there is evidence that Neanderthal and 'modren' humans inter-bred, about 4% of modern human mitochondrial DNA seems to come from Neanderthals. In fact, it's possible to see some Neanderthal traits in modern humans; e.g, low forehead, prominent eye-brow ridge, broad nose, occipital bun/ridge, and in the USofA, membership of the republican party.

Re: Not learning from history?

"So, is it because becoming a politician makes people stupid and arrogant, or is it only stupid and arrogant people who want to become politicians?"

No, what you call stupidity is not actually stupidity, it’s a characteristic of sociopaths, a type of arrogance, a belief that they are right, and when it’s wrong its somebody else’s fault. Personally I think a very high proportion of politicians are sociopaths.

Here are some of the most common characteristics of a sociopath:

• Conventional appearance, dark suit & nice tie.

• Glib, superficially charming, often highly verbal

• Promiscuous sexual behaviour

• Manipulative and cunning

• High sense of entitlement (have the moat cleaned at taxpayers expense)

• Lacks a sense of moral responsibility or moral conscience

• Shallow emotions

• Callousness, lack of empathy

• Lying without remorse, shame or guilt.

• Interested only in their personal needs or desires, without concern for the effects of their behaviours on others.

Re: Constitution and ammendments

There are legitimate needs to collect such information. A terrorist calling someone in the US from a disposable phone creates the need to collect more phone records to find the terrorist

But where do you draw the line? Open all the mail, monitor all telephones and email, capture all pidgons In case they are carrying messages, make it an offense to wave your arms In case it is semaphore?

As Benjamin Franklin said "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety"

Also research what the nazis said after wwii, its along the lines of 'we just kept telling the people they were under attack, then they will believe anything'.

Re: Reality TV fail

How are they going to balance the intelligent, mentally stable people they'd need for a mission like this

Well, that would not be necessary Mr. President. It could easily be accomplished with a computer. And a computer could be set and programmed to accept factors from youth, health, sexual fertility, intelligence, and a cross section of necessary skills. Of course it would be absolutely vital that our top government and military men be included to foster and impart the required principles of leadership and tradition. Slams down left fist. Right arm rises in stiff Nazi salute. Arrrrr! Restrains right arm with left. Naturally, they would breed prodigiously, eh? There would be much time, and little to do. But ah with the proper breeding techniques and a ratio of say, ten females to each male, I would guess that they could then work their way back to the present gross national product within say, twenty years.

Re: Kid vandalises shop window.

Vandalise a shop window, one shop owner and his clientele are affected until it's fixed.

Vandalise a telco, and embarrass the telco for having shit security which embarrasses the executives who outsourced IT security to their brother-in-laws company, every customer of the telco is affected by increased charges and fees as the telco spends more money on advertising and lobbying politicians for greater punishment for people who expose weaknesses in the telco's security.

Meanwhile in order to incentivise staff to work harder the telco imposes a 10% pay cut of staff and outsources half of their jobs to a third world country while executives get more share options for reducing operating costs.

Scale is very important in crime.

It's surprising how much bandwidth these apps use in reporting back and I think it will be an issue unless you have a large or unlimited data capacity.

Thankfully I don't need to be update my farce-book status every 10 minutes and neither do I suffer from tweet-arrhea.

Re: Fastest?

16 Cores

So now I need 16 F*****g licences to run oracle on the server????????? No wonder its only a quarter of a mil$ for a T5 server and nearly 2 mil for the IBM product. Cheaper once off hardware costs but higher licence costs[1], time to kick the oracle licence addiction.

[1] We abandoned a plan to virtualise our servers when it emerged that moving oracle from the dual core servers to the quad-core virtual servers would have doubled the licencing costs for no advantage even though oracle was going to be configured to run on on a single cpu. A side effect of that is that it has extended the life of the big blue box.
