I lead a foraging day for the local food festival...
...at the end the general consensus is:
* that leaves taste like leaves
* that you need an awful lot of leaves to satisfy you
* vegetable protein is almost impossible to find for most of the year
There is a reason that non agrarian civilisations were all meat eaters.

Want the police to arrive...
...phone from the same street and tell them you've recovered the your goods and the perp needs an ambulance.
The victim of a crime should never, never be placed in the wrong.

No downvotes here but I guess it is horses for courses. I can kick off any of the applications I need with at most 2 clicks from my wireless mouse.
I'm still unsure...
...what it can do that my retired pc running kubuntu connected to my telly can't do.
Re: Global warming is not only something in ONE lifetime...
<quote>It means that the coming centuries will be hotter.</quote>
Or colder, or stay roughly the same.
Are registration numbers secret now...
...I must remember to cover mine up.
Pretty soon the only people who will be able to afford to fly are environmentalists going to the next conference so - meh.
Shooting themselves in the foot...
I suspect, at least in the UK, BTS is a loss making proposition. What better way to shed customers and minimise the impact of stopping support than to price themselves out of the market.
Re: Stay with me here...
Look into my eyes and repeat after me "Warm weather was not predicted by the climate models"
Whatever the cause...
... it looks like an accident waiting to happen
The 1938 hurricane would have had a bigger impact had it hit the Boroughs. And there are a lot more waterfront properties than there were then.
One thing is for sure sides of the argument will seize on this as using selective quotes to prove that is was/was not CO2 that caused it.
Note that I did not say climate change. The climate changes and it is definitely affected by people. The question in my mind is how the changes can be attributed to CO2 and the cost of the precautionary principle.
I only came here...
...because of the misleading headline. Now I've wasted 5 minutes of life I can't get back.
Well stripe me pink...
...it's not as bad as the models predict.
Who da thunk it.

"The problem is we don't know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened;" - James Lovelock proposer of the Gaia Hypothesis
A proper scientist. He proposed a hypothesis which was not born out by the facts so he looked for another one.
Had to be done...

And one wet year does not constitute unprecedented extreme weather that we can come to expect. But the BBC was pushing it as such yesterday.
How many people are going to tell me...
...the Met Office figures don't confirm no warming for 17 years.
(read carefully before frothing at the mouth)
Would that be the motorbike or the little mermaid?
...I was hoping for a story involving John Shuttleworth.
I feel left out...
...I haven't got a single stalker.
All that hardware and no backup power devices? I have a couple of Tecnet 4000mAH batteries that keep me going while I am out an about for about 5 days. Galaxy tab 2 turned on for a couple of hours a day and HTC smartphone on all the time.
Not saying that there are other criteria for what you take but power doesn't have to be one of them.
Personally I'd like to see a version of the galaxy tab three times as thick and heavy that would keep going for a few days between charges. I think the slimness thing has got a bit silly.
Re: If your names not down your not coming in..
Drown, really. The latest alarmist picture on my fb timeline shows a planet baked to dust with cracked deserts where the oceans are. You lot really need to make your mind up.
It wasn't so long ago we believed the CRU/IPCC projections.
How are they working out for you now chaps?
Re: I've gone all nostalgic
Worse than this. I used to run multiple slide projectors for big banking presentations for a multinational. No one told me the QA slides had been dropped and put back in the carousel at random. So the QA man gets up and does a big spiel about getting thing right first time, nods at me to fire up his slides. First slide:
Thank you for you attention. Any Questions?
.,. is always a defence in defamation.
How is this going to be tested?
I wonder how much we paid...
...to draft an unworkable draft law because the proper consultation wasn't done in the first place?
...if the guardian are revisiting the Pang this week? Thought not.
Here's a quiz...
Private companies are queuing up to put private money into building nuclear power stations because they know they will get their money back when they go on stream.
Wind farms and solar installers are holding their hands out for sponsorship from your taxes and your power bills.
Which works best for you?
Everybody who downvotes needs to be made to sit in the dark until the wind blows...but not too hard.
In the olden days...
...we always said that it was best to wait for the odd numbered releases...
...who their landlords are?
I have 2 teknet 7000ah
about 25 quid. Completely recharges my galaxy tab overnight. If I don't go overboard with usage I can be out 6 days. And the battery pack recharges in the car. The tab struggles to keep up with usage on the Samsung car charger.
It came out of Tangerine.
I worked closely with Barry Muncaster and his team. He made his money making meters for taxis. I used to write articles and the problem page for Oric Owner.
I also helped debug the version 1 ROM (actually and eprom in the early versions)
Shame the 6502 faded away. It had brilliant instruction set.
Re: But if I were an elite cyberspy...
Thumbs down from "elite cyberspies" I guess
But if I were an elite cyberspy...
...I'd probably plant a few errors to mislead.
Re: third option.
Windrose: as long as they stick to ignoring laws and not making up their own I'll go along with it.
Re: "initial ten year term"
Depends on what you mean worked.
Met some dodgy business case that talks of 'savings' with no quantifiable success criteria. Yes they have.
Made the outsourcing company a mint. Yes loads.
I've been in IT in various guises since the DHSS started moving its paper records to tape in the 70's.
I got out of my last public sector contract by calling the project manager a useless knob. Only looking for commercial now. Or client side public sector so I can beat up outsourcers on daily basis.
