the pen was a ball point. it was made by a commercial company who sold it for lots of money as a novelty and give it to NASA cheep and both the USA and the Russians used it because it was far superior to pencils witch leave floating bits of flammable wood in your space capsule.
other than that good comparison.

Re: @John G Imrie
"Your post contains one flaw in re-engineering, in particular your list Paedophiles, Benefit Fraudsters, Extreme Porn producers, and Extremist’s would all be considered criminals. These activities would have been considered criminal both before and during your life time. Further to this almost all other societies would consider these activities criminal.
Whereas the 1946 poem contains a list of people who would largely not have been considered criminals until such time as the specific government to which Martin refers made these things criminal.."
Extreme Porn producers, and Extremist’s. where not criminals until the government decided that they where (provided the porn was concencal and that there was only extremism not terrorism)
you can make a case for Paedophiles in the same vane just a longer time ago

Re: Depends on the context of the incitement, surely?
of course he is an idot. he is an MP
it looks like it is the tinkering round the edges that is the problem here
Re: And yet....
as a 15 or 16 year old I would expect to be treated as at least mostly an adult and with anything like any sort of freedom getting porn an't hard and never has been it is just now it comes in the form of a screen not a paper mag
1 in 16 boys? seams low
that is all I got to say

Re: Dodgy cops?
massive diffrence leagley between "will be found guilty" and "has been found guilty"
what I can't see
I can not see any intent to break copyright there I can see a bissness modle I can see a model that stores large files and moves them efecentley and is not nosy about what people are storing in them but no intent to break copyright
she was so incompetent she could not found it. she found some "schoolgirl" porn where the actress was clearly 18 (records on file notice and all that) and even the char she was playing was over 18 (self identified as such)

Re: So that's one fondleslab
the foldle slab will have a 500gb non volatile memory cache on the chip and it will cache your docs the whole process will be invisible to the user only us techies will know now it works the same way Users do not know how DNS works or IP packet routing
Re: No, Liam, I won't be using a fondleslab as my primary computer.
the point is most users will use touch. USERS
people doing the work will stay with interfaces that let them work but consumers will move to touch and leave WIMP as the niche for those of us that need it. the same way that when I want to really use my server or delve inot network dignostic tasks I use cmd or now powershell but users use windows. in the future users will use touch and artists and developers will have developer machines that have mouses and touch pads and they will get the same look Users give me when I open cmd prompts
Re: Instead of paying through the nose or consultancys
how abut we compromise and pay hookers to work in hospitails
"hello nurse" indeed
define a job
I currently have a job witch I do to buy things but if I had more free time I would "work" by writing books or painting pictures. if things where cheep I would not need to do much work to get a fondle slab or food but the price of created stuff (somthing robots are bad at) might not fall
we have the option of eating healthley for as much or even less than eating badley (compart the price of raw fruit and veg tot he price of ready meals) because a lot of chouse not to dose not mean we can anot
Re: "They always have a back-up"
in nuclear power your bckups have bckups what hppenes is each backup failes one after each other based on the servirity of the disaster till one holds but as each one fails your options to get the plant back working go down hill till the last backup leaves the plant a smoldering weck that will take decades to clean up but leaves the civiln population unharmed.
if I remember the disaster right the backups eventuley held but the cores are scrap.
last time I cam acoss an "adult filter" on an internet contract (I think it was a mobile internet) it blocked such well knows adult sites as http://freefall.purrsia.com/ and http://forums.theregister.co.uk I would be suprised if this is any better
the reasion spent fuel rods are dangrious is that they are raidocative. it is exactley the same property that made them usefull in the first place. They are litulery throwing out energy everywhere so all we need to do is develop a way of harnshing that energy you know sort of like reprocessing them and resuing them
3) we can bairley aforde the army we have at the moment (yes you will say they will not need to be paied but they will need to eat be housed armed etc)
long turm efects
you get the same prblem for every sory of industrail process
you are worries about the efect of hi level waste? what about murcry poisning or any heavy mettle poisninging they will leave the ground in a worse state than radactive waste for a lot longer
that would be why they do not build reactors like that any more (and only the russians where silly enought to build them in the first place)
and even so the casuilities where less than on some of there other propanger advantures
both my airsoft guns cost me £400 each they are good makes and teh ammo is 10 times less expencive than paint balls and my guns are full auto repiclas of P90 so they even look cool
cleen feed may have worked whail it was only blocking child porn there was not meny pepol atacking it but now it has just actratcted a hold swarm of atackers a lot of who have at least tasit public suport how long do you think till somone finds a way round or throught it or even brakes it completley and then there gose all the blocks not just the pirate ones
for that graph it is clear that long turm mobile phone use dose have an infulance on cancer. it seames to cure it
it is a search engin that will only be searchinf form a database of about a dozzen sites.
do you realy need a search engine for that
no it is more like
this sort of wibbley wimmly timey wimie ball
not sure about
I have been talking to somone in the decomishing industry and the new genration of nuke plants do not have astrronomical clean up costs
the current gen do but they where built as test plants and wepons genrators and so they have complex clean up. But the new gen desines and easy to clean up and I bleave the ones in the US put asside a little form each MW they sell to pay "cleanup insurance" to cover decomishing costs
WHO CARES ABOUT THE CIA!!!!!
THEY TOOK DOWN EVE AND MINECRAFT!!!!
my life is over :(
oh waite they are back faulse alarm
it was only 2 of every "unclean" animal it was 7 of every clean animal
I bleave it is called "know your readership"
I do not have the evidance for this but I was told by somone who works in the nuclear decomising industry is that plants in the USA do pay for them selfs and pay a tax on all energy sold to pay for the cost of decomishing
and by the way before anyboady says so the reasion a lot of decomishing at the moment is very expencive is the things that at the momeny are begin decomishened are test reactors a lot of witch where pushed to the limites (as you do in tests) ans therefor there where some unexpected results witch are costly to clean up
I will admit I did not throuley understand what they where aiming at but it looks like a simular modle steam uses and that seames to be working well after a few teathing troubles
plastic added somthing
pepol could pay for expencive itams with out having to carry large amounts of cash around that where vunrable to being pickpocketed or heavy plastic had some security cash had none
pass me the drill
mabny it is Innocuous and he knows somthing you don't?
no you fail
the articler said there was no corisponding increse in other drug admisions so they tryed to rule out a overall increase in genral drug demand
I would qoute most von lipwig
but there are far to meny to be revlent
but I found the filming of gladator made it feel more personal like you where there fighting in the ring with them so I liked it
no the unit of effort should be the F**K
as in not giving a F**K
if they stoped at 2 or 3 we would never have got the "red alert buld" joke witch I will not ruin by repeting here
bad sfx make good tv
I rember a talk with a friend of mine and the jist of it was that the more mony/effor that gose on sfx the less time/mony gose on good writing
the worse the sfx the better the writing has to be to distract pepol form the pisspoor sfx works for dr who as well
hot water and lights
it is called the vauxhall ampera
a range extend electric like the vauxall ammpe
and I bet when petrol cars where first out all the pepol how had horses said that having all that flamable petrolum sprit arpound the stable was a fire hazzard (probley not give the times but) diffrent tyoes of transport will give diffrent thougts. for an example pepol with electric cars will get used to puluging them in every time they part in a carpark then 30 mins charge seams resionable (most pepol want a brake after neally 100 miles drive)
