Re: A missunderstanding of roles
Just to confuse the AC even more, most drugs are illegal in Amsterdam but not because they are immoral.
Re: About "time"
Presumably that's why there is a "lithium-polymer battery fed through a micro USB port".
So what happens when the bonds mature?
Apple will need to find more cash to pay them back. Will they issue more bonds? This could keep going forever but there is interest to pay and that is eventually going to be greater than 35% tax.
Maybe the bonds will be bought by overseas buyer and they can be repaid with offshore cash.
You need to shoot yourself
Feeling miserable because GDP has gone up? I remember what this country was like in the 70's and 80' and the sense of entitlement in some sectors was higher than it is now. Thanks to Thatcher we have now stripped most of the power from the unions (but not before they destroyed the car industry).
Music on cheap headphones sounds better than on expensive old stuff because it has no wow, flutter, clicks, print-through, interference from engine ignitions. It has similar harmonic distortion and frequency response but your brain is quite capable of compensating for that and removing a fair bit of random noise otherwise you wouldn't be able to have a conversation while walking between rooms.
Cheer up and listen to some music you enjoy.
Re: "Fair Share"
Is there anything to stop bitcoin2 being invented?
Fed up with bitcoin volatility? Try my new, improved virtual currency bitcoin2. Based on the proven technology of bitcoin but without any of the hordes of greedy people trying to inflate it (yet).
Re: Where's the value?
Well the USD, GBP and most currencies are backed by their countries armies, some of them have nukes.
As far as bitcoin being worth the electricity used to generate it - can you turn it back into electricity?
Anyone know how to configure exim on debian to work with Sky/Yahoo!?
I used to get it to send mail with a From: pointing to my old freeserve mail account. It now looks like that is causing problems and everything has to be from @sky.com.
Re: People still use ISP mailboxes ?
Pray tell exactly how you send emails without using your ISP? I'm on Sky and they seem very happy to bin any connection to port 25 to anywhere except themselves.
Re: re. Feedly
tt-rss looks very simple and may be what you want. All the data stays on your computer so only you can shut it down or mine it and sell adverts to show your own eyeballs. Also has debian packages.
freedomboxfoundation.org is looking more and more necessary even in free societies.
Mood sensors and privacy concerns
Do you really want your neighbours to know when your bitch is in heat?
They are up against educationcity.com which runs on all those computers that the schools already have and is probably very cheap for schools. Personal copies are about £30 per year or two so the educational license is going to be much less.
Re: Oh god
Well a CD is about 600MB but CDs can have about 60 minutes of recording so that's way above an LP. Also CDs are sixteen bits of pure digital stero joy whereas LP comes in at around 12 bits (yes it does) - and you have to reduce that because of the noise floor for a typically dusty and worn LP.
The answer is about 150MB.
Had a phone call today
We think you have been mis-sold Freeview TV, please press 5 to talk to one of our leeches.
Lots of broken spokes on the London Eye! I'm not going on that till they fix it.
"but the Acer has Caps Lock"
THAT'S THE WINNING FEATURE FOR ME.
No, we're having a strong moratorium.
Re: Dish was like Indiana Jones
So he had to sit and watch the adverts while recording the program. Probably got good because he had to pay attention.
I've seen the same on UK motorway signs
Except ours was a very English hack, something like:
"Pick up your litter, others do"
Maybe too subtle to be noticed.
Why wait? They can't really complain if you steal it.
Easy solution to the noon power 6pm demand
Just put the solar plant 6 hours west and run a cable.
Is that typo really in the trademark application?
> and a oblong table
Is it OK to have an oblong table? or even rectangular?
> ... does not mean this planet is ours to do with what we wish
OK, so who does the planet belong to and where are they? Oh, that's right - no-one and nowhere to be seen.
Unless you believe in God, in which case it is ours (at least according to the Bible). and so are the animals.
Good luck with your neck muscles.
Wonder what he does
I'd guess BT Broadband customer support. Well. you wouldn't want to run that on the BT network would you.
Remember people: A bow tie is a cry for help.
Just like orange hair.
Please lose the sepia
There were lots of bright and cheery colours in the Victorian age, we're just left with sepia prints because that is what the majority of surviving media consists of. Go the a museum and look at the fabrics. And all that lovely mahogany.
May have a point
It shows there is some code in there to handle errors that should never happen. How did Microsoft test that code? Are there any bugs in it? Even if you assume the code identical to and fully tested on other platforms it shows there is unreachable code that make your ROM bigger than it need be i.e. more expensive, slower and more power hungry (more cache misses).
Old shool website design
OK so the graphics are cheesy, but it doesn't half load fast.
Why use wireless at all?
It's not like they don't own the land the rails run on, Just lay cable.
But now you can use the source code to see how to drive the cool stuff.
Do you really want to be able to change the GPU firmware? How are you going to test your changes? Do you know how much Cadence simulator licences cost? Have you got a thousand core simulator farm?
I'm not having a go but the contents of the firmware are in a file to save having to include non-volatile storage in the chip and to allow shipping the chip before all the firmware bugs are fixed.
Why not just say "Fuck off I'm busy" to them, it works wonders for me. I rarely have to say it twice.
"mindful, shared consumption of resources and a clear and unwavering focus on sustainability"
She does realize she will be getting there on a rocket presumably?
Re: How did he end up being a candidate for the jury?
And, that most people still working in that area who haven't made enough money to leave or get excused from jury service probably feel they have been screwed by one or more large corporations.
Lets have more gratuitous sexism.
I like my men like I like my coffee -- thick and rich.

> By facebooking them, I have a permanent, searchable record of our interactions
How permanent is your facebook page?
You really should have finished fiddling with it before you replaced the regular media centre.
Re: Do you find...
Would you eat a frog? Me neither, nor the cat.
Even better idea
Insist on cruise control being installed in every car then the car in front will be much less likely to randomly change speed.
Round tables are TM King Arthur. The patent expired a while ago.
As Stephen Fry might say
Porcelain.. Culture... ooooooooh
Intel et al in Eire
Tell you what why don't you put your corporation tax rates up to the EU average and close some of those tax loopholes? No need for fines.
Re: Door stickers are bad
Unusual street you have there. I would have though that next door was 46. We're all odd down our little track and the even numbers are missing.
Re: Having fun
Stairs are more fun??? You need to get out more. Try a restaurant.
Reminds me of the Visa commercial
*) Providing leaks to make Julian famous - almost free
*) Arranging parties and groupies - £1000's
*) Bail for Julian - £200,000
*) Gettng Julian to hide in Equador forever - priceless
Re: No photos in the canteen
I like those lolies. It's the only thing on there I'd eat without being drunk.
Lady GooGoo and Dustbin Beaver
If they can't recognize the value of free advertising and brand awareness they deserve to be removed from the site. Simon Growl is still in there.
What the difference between "gift" and "give"?
Really, I would like to know what you think the difference is.
Now I can ignore any channel that isn't three digits starting with 1.
