The problem with "thermonuclear war
is that you will lose.
If apple demand a court order
Then I'd bill them for the privilege.
Recompete, that's a word now?

My mother ... I'll tell you about my mother!
Re: Thoughts summed up
The big difference I can see is that in prison they have to feed and water you in the call centre they don't.
Bloody prisoners, coming over here and taking our call centre jobs.
Re: Unintended consequences.
The only way you can report CP safely is to be under the age of criminal responsibility. That's why only children should report CP.
I was going to add the joke icon, but really this is not funny.
Re: MS adverts are always awful
My first thought was. 'Micosoft, now you can work for free anywhere'
If it's not on your servers
Then it's not your data.
In this case it seams to be use the cloud and kiss any policies you have set for your companies computers good by.
Any sensible admin would have set up the corporate network to have blocked this users laptop from connecting due to the expired virus scanner. How are you supposed to do the same for your cloud service?
HSCIC and care.data
So it's not HSCIC that we have to worry about when it come to the data security of our electronic records. It's all the other parts of the NHS that can't seam to secure their data.
One big database
I've never understood why it has to be 'one big database'. Why not define communication and anonymization protocols that can be run at the GP's surgery so only the minimum amount of data requested can be accessed.
Hay look at that big blue asteroid it's only 90 million miles from where we want the Dyson Sphere and it's chock loaded with carbon we can use for the structure of the Sphere
I hope you don't have kid's
Because if you do you owe me a massive rebate on my taxes for helping educating them.
Re: Surprised by RC's statement!
You are confusing local and global effects.
The Sahara desert has a daily summer temperature range of around -5ºC to 50ºC.This means that there is sufficient energy to rise the temperature by 55ºC by the hottest part of the day. However all that energy dissipates during the afternoon, evening and night allowing the temperature to drop.
A global rise of .3ºC means that on average there is sufficient energy in the atmosphere to heat the entire atmosphere by .3ºC. That additional energy will try to dissipate and the most likely way for that to happen is through more violent storms.
PS it's not the temperature numbers you have to worry so much about , but the amount of energy required to raise the entire atmosphere by that temperature.
For those of an experimental bent try this simple experiment.
Put half a pint of water in a pan put it on your stove and see how long it takes to boil away.
Now do the same with 30 pints of water. this ratio matches the same ratio of the Sahara to the world and the ratio of the two times will give you the ratio of energy required to heat both to the same temperature. see how much more energy is required.
No, no it's not.
But apparently it is hard
<Brian>"You are all individuals"
<Crowd>"Yes, we're all individuals"
<Single man in Crowd>"Er, I'm not"
Well I think we are all different.
Except for the person reading this obviously.
Re: New terrorist plan...
This has the added advantage in that you can re-use the innocent pedestrians instead of having to round up a new bunch of them.
Says it all really
New tours of the facility have now started which take just one hour, rather than 90 minutes, to help pack even more tourists in.
Re: Still no legal TPB alternative
What you mean there's some kind of entertainment after the scary warnings and trailers for films that came out 3 years ago?
Dam I really mus stop using these DVD's as wine coasters.
Rubber like parts.
I wonder if i does flesh tones?
If Anti-matter does fall 'up' it would explain why we can't see any of it. is as far from us as it can get.
Re: ASA - still a waste of space
I think the fines are stupid.
The ASA should be able to compel the offending company to publish at its own cost the ASA's ruling. This must appear in the same locations and for the same time as the original offending advert.
would he still be liable under RIPA
Yes. If it's encrypted and you have it you are deemed to know the password.
Re: Standard for passwords
So they where using the Unix crypt function then
Well it's slightly more clever than updating the wikipedia pages of the recently departed famous to see who can get the most outrageous claim into a published obituary.
Appologies to all the ladies who read the Register
In the interests of balance
Because there are more pretty boys to look at in the park?
Re: The square root of fuck all in most cases no doubt.
Some where between i and -i then.
It's not the size that matters
It's what you do with it.
Or in this case which direction you are travelling.
Re: Oh and why are you taking a laptop to the park ?
Because there are more pretty girls to look at in the park?
So who in LulzSec
wasn't on the FBI's pay roll?
Watson IS the virus. It's the reason everything's falling apart!
Has the Advocate General really stated that there is an invalid law on the statute books, and if so can an EU Citizen be compelled to obey it?
GP's Opening Hours
"Equally important is that everyone knows that they have a choice and can raise an objection by simply talking to their GP."
When am I supposed to find time to have this chat with my GP. His opening hours clash with my work hours
'Backed by Banks' - not really, backed by a large network of of traders running custom software and high speed networks consuming (and wasting) vast amounts of electricity, validated by an un-elected group of 'Bankers' more interested in their bonus than the currency; exchanged by unregulated, mostly unqualified and definitely insecure 'Shops', easily stolen or lost, unscaleable and with a price propped up primarily between people with large amounts of sunk costs, and governments.
Though I'll grant you the Volatility bit. In a 'real' currency if you got the kind of price changes we see with BitCoin it would be heading in only one direction due to hyper inflation.
With non-virtual currency, £1 is £1 and $1 is $1, you may go to sleep with £1 = $1.50 but you wouldn't then wake up to find £1 = $15.00, it really needs to be much more stable, else people would buy the coins when they are cheap, then sell when they are high, not use them when they are cheap, a waiting game?
Welcome to the wonderful world of Banking. :-)
Re: Calling home is extortionate
You can't make calling home free. How is the Home office expected to take it's cut from the outsourced tender.
Though I'd have picked The Day after Tomorrow rather than that damp squid Water World.
Re The Clangers
It will all unravel in the end you know.
Re: Profit and value-add...
An arbitrageur adds value by creating demand for the item where it's cheap, thus causing the price to rise and increasing the profits for the seller, and reducing demand where it's expensive, thus causing the price to drop and increasing profits for the buyer.
Re: And so it starts
He must be any long time comentard would use the phrase
And so it begins.
I think you need a new record.
This one's stuck in 2003
The silence of the Geeks.
This is actually a work force training device
Look for Fisher Price to branch out into cubicle design in 15 to 16 years time.
He's not an asshole hes a capitalist.
Well he's probably an asshole as well
Re: Context is everything....
They should be shot and have their bodies dumped into the sea as shark food.
As long as you put Blair and Bush at the top of the list.
Be careful what you wish for.
Bad analogy time
If you make a gun and someone buys it then removes the safety and sells it on. Is the original manufacture liable if the weapon causes an accident.
That the Accountants selling these loopholes to the International Corps. are the same ones advising the Government on how to write tax law.
Except unlike Compaq they didn't do a clean room reimplementation from a specification they just copied.
