Not sure how you will read that text
since moving your eyes along the line will move the contact lens and the text. Have you ever tried to look at those floaty things you see when looking at the sky - you can't unless it's slap bang in the middle. I do not want adverts scrolling all over my fovea thanks. Blink lights in the peripheral may be useful though.
So don't call it a PC
Get one of these: http://www.mini-itx.com/store/basket.asp?action=add&product=4059&qty=1&c=65 and put it in one of these: http://www.mini-itx.com/store/basket.asp?action=add&product=3839&qty=1&c=3
Together with an SSD, HDMI cable, USB MCE remote and gig ethernet you get a completely silent MythTV frontend with no moving parts. It will do 1080p in most formats very nicely but you may have to google "nvidia 50Hz" if your TV is 50Hz. You can even bolt it on the back of the TV as there are VESA mounting holes in the case and VESA mounting adaptors are on ebay.
I worked in lots of companies with remote CEO's
Quadrics - Bristol based, CEO in Pisa
SuperH - Bristol based, CEO in California
ARC - Watford based, CEO in California
Turned out badly for all of them, maybe there's a pattern, hope it wasn't my efforts.
I'd be more comfortable with Morris Men doing their thing.
After all I don't think God will mind if you don't get to work a couple of times this winter.
Bog means wet
And it's wet because it's at the bottom of a hill or somewhere where water doesn't drain away well. Surely a rise in global temperatures will result in more rain or rising sea levels so the bogs will get bigger or wetter not drier?
How flexible is your PVR/remote?
Why not arrange for the skip button to mute? I think I can arrange for MythTV to mute for a couple of seconds every time skip is hit so I won't even have to hit unmute after the break.
I'll tell you where they are.
My previous contract was at Intel and the whole place is run on SSD laptops (with Linux server farms for the real work). There did not appear to be any desktop machines. Unsurprisingly the SSDs are all Intel.
What's with the pixelated bottoms
I anybody really offended by a bum? I'm not talking about goatse but just normal buttocks. They even did it on the X-factor, whereas I would rather they pixelated Louis Walsh into oblivion.
Drop the exit(0);
That way you pass back the return value of printf().
You never know, he might have taken stdout with him.
Many thanks to DMR who has enabled me to make a nice living - sort of, I write Verilog.
We need less weird tax rules not more.
Agreed - why not just make things simpler by just not having to pay Employers NI on the first ten employees, or no corporation tax on the first £50k of profit.
Please stop calling it Silicon Roundabout
There is no Silicon being produced there. There isn't even much Silicon being produced in Silicon Gorge or on the Silicon Fen but they do stuff that is close enough.
Why do you even need to do a survey
Surely you just divide the output of the drinks industry by the size of the drinking population.
It's approximately one Fort Knox
> United States Mint Police, who are equipped with bicycles
They are also equipped with a handy army base complete with soldiers, guns and helicopters etc.
I don't imagine they are going to have a problem with looters any time soon.
So can I sue the blood-sucking ambulance chasers they set on me
after they tried to bill me for services after I had left?
I've got 1 fake out of 1 attempt so far.
Or do you really think my name is Aaron Aardvark?
Barry Biscuit. (next months ID)
Turn your Ipad into a laptop
And have two batteries to worry about.
While on the subject of worries: padding usually makes a good thermal insulator as does the glass screen. How does the heat from inside the iPad get out? Did you check the temperature is gets too when playing video / minting bitcoins?
I'd prefer NFC outside my phone.
Why does this have to be in a phone or use the phone network. I'd like a little tag on my keyring that works when I've driven to a cream-tea shop in Cornwall with no mobile coverage.
Out of the two things that you always take when going out, which one always works? Your keys or your phone?
Is this a bad thing?
So you've left your machine connected to the internet and some use is made of it to benefit someone. Sounds just like SETI but without the hassle of installing it. If you actually need the CPU cycles you will notice it and remove it surely?
I guess the leave the unsintered powder around to support the layer above.
Otherwise this would only be good for making pyramids and bricks.
Twitter should talk to someone in Italy
I'm sure the t.it domain is available.
And this month Mathew, my real name is Aaron Aardavrk
Yes it really is, well at least it was when I cleared out my Google cookies and set up a new account. Since then my real name has reverted back to what it was before. Next month I think I'll be Barry Bignob for a few minutes.
Here in the UK your real name is what you chose it to be and you don't have to go through any hoops for it to be so. It may be illegal to drive if you don't update your driving license, and you should inform the taxman etc but you can call yourself anything you want at any moment.
So now it's OK to drink (coffee) and drive.
And by the looks of the video it's OK to stare out of the side windows while driving around busy urban streets. And that's some serious smearing when the wipers operate, pretty bad for a new car.
I just don't trust this bloke
Can't put my finger on it, prolly the backstory, but he just comes across as a motormouth more suited to a car showroom.
ACS:Law was fined £200,000 but it was reduced to £1,000 because it had ceased trading. Yet here we find Andrew Crossley has a house worth £700,000 and he had gone bankrupt. I would have thought he could sell the house to pay the fine and still have £500,000.
"That word is way out in front"
Doesn't know his biology - way out in front is cock
My darling daughter has figured this keyboard out and all I have now is four giant keys: P, O, N and I. They cover everything including the "arrange" button and I can't get it back.
Posted from my Iphone.
I used to be a VIA fan
back in the days when they were the only way to get a fanless system to play MPEG2 but they have dropped the ball too many times for me to like them anymore:
* Rubbish opensource support.
* Vapourware announcements .
* Slow IA32 exection.
And now I'm using an ASUS AT3IONT-I to drive my TV, it does H.264 at 1080p60 with real de-interlacing.
So this is 23% better power? - not if you can't buy it yet.
Sounds like junk
If you think that UI is razor sharp you must be a beardy. Transparency is bollocks as your screen grab shows, even the huge word "Thor" is hard to read and the visible bits of people confuse the UI. Making 2D into 3D on the fly is just stupid as your review shows, So it's a blu ray player - so what?
