Or indeed any specific technical approach.
As remarked above, the system contains the data must also contain a means to access the data.
As remarked elsewhere, when we think encryption is the answer we probably do not destined encryption, or our problem.
Needed for that one please.
My impression is occasional bats and birds bounce off a blade in the usual way but most manage to apply the results of millennia of evolution and fly round.
Radiologists pay careful attention to population accumulation of diagnostic radiation and assert, I think on sound evidence, that it matters.
that the US gov has demonstrated itself untrustworthy, and that this is proposed by Microsoft, who fall short of paragonhood of virtue in that respect as well.
GNU Foundation ideas might get a better reception, intransigent and Idealist being exactly what is lacking.
Old software is as maintainable as it ever was. If it is open source then nobody can prevent you from having it maintained.
Leaving the main interface elements (of which there tend to be too many in eg Word) unchanged and refactoring the innards should avoid slowdowns of a couple of sorts.
Who are you, and what is your source.
Of knowledge, or of funding?
hiring tech services to run his email?
You want the details of his word processor? Maps? Cobblers?
I expect he'll be busier now though, and have people offereing assistance with such trivia, and good luck to
Please don't encourage laws saying you can't run your email server and I can't and only a state licensed operator may do so and charge what they like, it isn't in any of our interests.
They ditched MS Office some years ago, IIRC. Have they dumped the operating systems as well yet?
If you backup version changes using rsync rather than copying the whole lot it will take little time.
Apple's TimeMachine does something similar but doesn't play nicely.
Define you as a denialist.
Done the research.
Last century I worked out how to reduce paper use in the NHS...
For each organisation count the sheets of paper (as A4) bought last year.
Buy 10% less for this year.
About now the admin people would have used up all the improvement available from writing on both sides of each sheet.
telling them how the NHS should work.
Anderson, would it not? Along with various other characters. In the same way Jane Eyre belongs in a book.
There's a good article about the artificial induction of immunity and another about Benjamin Jesty. Most of the former is as I originally wrote it, which I like, and most of the latter is added by other people, which I like.
Parts of The Register are a good advert for professional journalism... and parts are not.
People doing things they absolutely should not do with it to publicise their business were then targeted by criminals.
soon, but you can have it now of course, just download the current RC.
CEOs do tend to lie about things, no?
Since 1984, GNU.
I'm interested in the things blowing up.
I'm not interested in the font.
was put there going the same way round.
What differs is the inclination of the orbits, up to about 90 degrees if you consider polar orbits, but mostly only a few degrees.
 Because the delta-V is 2000mph less if you launch with the Earth's rotation from the equator than if you launch against it.
We've known for generations how to prevent many illnesses, and not only is this poorly applied by the people who have to apply it - the people - but they elect governments that will sell off school playing fields ...
Rapid high-tech fixes for specific conditions whether inherited or acquired are more in the arena of healthcare, or medicine, and while personal data and opinionated systems with hinting engines may well be interesting, the data doesn't need to be collected on everyone in advance to make it work.
they wanted to grab him for.
Did they say?
No. Although as always people who can make headings out of big bold text will believe their familiarity should lead IT policy for others...
onto the terminal below it, which has been constructed with the knowledge that a break is possible, and that that will cause severe damage?
It won't come straight down.
The cable low down is quite light.
Avoiding putting things in one direction along the plane of the cable - in an area which is likely to be mostly water - doesn't seem a major task.
prior work on this.
is also a counting of heads.
a sex change.
I don't want someone else either passing off a website as my Practices (NHS "Choices" has come rather close to that for many years actually, have you not seen it?) nor do I wish anyone to declare that I have to use a specific platform provided by someone else for my business website.
Back when GPs started adding themselves and their practices to the Web, last century, most of the Web was "amateur". The professional bit tends to be shiny twinkly bits, active code that executes on other people's computers, and links to as many paying services as can be squeezed in, with a dash of bait and switch aka search engine optimisation.
Now if you meant proper metadata, design according to user metrics and usability testing rather than marketing and graphics people, perhaps professionalism would be good.
Prescription requests come through services provided centrally by suppliers of GP software - all clsoed source stuff alas - are not email (although were you to choose to email us and ask, should we refuse on the grounds that you are not applying to yourself the level of security that we would apply to you?) and are available widely. Same for appointments, although most of our patients ring us up or walk round the corner and ask.
Surely other people are allowed to stand for your parliaments?
seems a clear mission statement.
better MS fix it, or if it is really of no consequence stop complaining it isn't secret.
not on the engine cooling water intakes, and not dipped into buckets from the time of the Royal Society founding onward (one of the early exercises of the R. Soc was to make thermometers, and one of the early uses was to put them on HM ships, and write the readings in the logs which sit in the Admiralty.
ZThomm, were you drunk when you wrote that, or what?
If drunk, then tomorrow you may be sober and enlightened or appalled, if not drunk then is it money, or sheer appalling stupidity?
Really? There's a ring of flags at the South Pole, and the thermometers are outside them, is that what you mean?
That the base at (where at means within actual walking distance of) the South Pole, where people stay in large numbers all summer, and small numebrs all winter doesn't have a thermometer - everyone agreed perhaps to stick a hand outside and say "we scientists don't nbeed a thermometer to tell us that is COLD, and we don't care how cold it is"?
They are actually on the Internet these days.
I'm amazed you can type.
it has, actually.
Still - facts - science- if you want to believe something else you will.
Just remember that Gandalf and the headmaster are actually us, nowadays.
For certain very small values of surprise.
So not the only one.
to a FOI Act request on the grounds they are due for publication
Overdue I think.
The najor failing was the appearance of dishonesty and not listening to people who Di have a clue and/or entirely legitimate views.
The business of sending things - usually a bit late - for mandatory or statutory checking for publucation and at the same time publishing them is pretty standard. I suspect it correlates with a criminal mind, even if the mind involved has not actually committed any overt detectable crimes.
Very very small drops of water, projected against the junk.
you use MS Word etc and keep a horde of unconnected documents.
Building an information system or knowledge system would have been a good first step.
But MS looked to people buying things as thoguh they understood it, and Word docs look to the administrata as though they are useful pictures of documents...
The coffee machine cleaning probably isn't management information, and won't be collected never mind collating. Cleaning costs for the canteen, possibly, cleaning costs overall certainly, in whatever degree of detail the management of the hospital and their outsourced cleaner management company find useful in setting and paying bills, certainly is, and it seems likely it would be better managed if this is information kept in an organised form and thus trivially available.
Is it more or less than other hospitals? Is the result cleaner or dirtier? THat sounds like interesting tuff to know.
you refactor it.
Nobody can stop you from doing that.
Now try that with closed soruce.
is what he means.
So if they (or even we) share some of it, we must do so under some power, or for obvious benefit to him (as doctors have from time to time done in the last few millenia) and cannot say "you have allowed us to do whatever we like" in response to a question.
run a company doing useful things for a profit?
So the ISS is flying?
The essence of flying is that it uses aerodynamic forces to control direction.
Hence the altitude at which spaceflight (as NASA seem to call it) supplants atmospheric flight (at that altitude the speed required to fly on aerodynamic lift exceeds the orbital speed).
on anyone, anywhere?
on nucleic acids, for instance.
as you say.
So unlikely things are likely to happen.
Positing instead that something impossible happened is not, Watson, an improvement.
at least once.
this is the observed data, presented...
We were working on it then, but the Blair Microsoft Project intervened. Now NPfIT has mutated to CfH and ruthlessly faded out in standard fashion the work is picking up again.
And as noted, FLODS replacements for proprietary systems are happening.
Yes crime I think in UK.
