Third question: How big would those fuel tanks have to be?
Actually, for US prices, that's cheap! We septics are getting screwed worse than her -->
It's turtles, all the way down.

Thanks. Do you know anything about the lay of the land in Shannon/Limerick?
So if one were an IT worker looking to start over in a new country, would Ireland be a good place to start looking?
From what I've picked up from British media (including Attack the Block and Ali G) I would guess that the native loose grasp of grammar is more than doubled for US English.
However, from how it read in the article, the errors were not consistent with the errors of a non-native speaker. Most non-native errors arise from transliteration of thought (IE if you speak Russian as a native, and you think in Russian; your English sentences will follow Russian structure and, perhaps, Russian idiom). The errors that were analyzed did not conform to one particular set, and also used US idiomatic speech, but with errors introduced to seem like a foreign operation.
Theory: the verbiage was generated by a US speaker who tried to use "Russian" dialog from US movies to misdirect attention. To a USAian this means it is Russian, but to one who studies language it is very much not.
Later this year - according to the article.
Well, Starbucks' "coffee" is about 60% kool-aid....
It's a warm, brownish drink of indeterminate but probably sweet taste,
preferable with other added flavourings that is almost, but not quite completely unlike coffee.
1) Depends on the Gas station
2) Starbucks is Gas Station "coffee" - With the sugar, milk and flavorings that GS Coffee needs to be drinkable(-ish) already added.

Dammit! Now I have to change my El Reg password!

The patent troll filed a suit against three chip makers, the chip makers filed a Patent Review Request (on the last available day, sure). If the power had not gone out, the IPR would have been received in time. With the power out, it would not have been. So the PTO extends deadlines for filings to make up for the outage.
If they did not grant the extension, would the chip makers be suing the PTO for stuffing up their end of the patent suit via power outage?
In this analogy, mysticism and spirituality is the 'devil'
That is what Lostyearsago said - ignorance is the devil.
Wait, isn't the whole point of a merkin that it is fake?
Sounds about right for what MS has been living in.
Mix: 2 parts fantasy, 1 part reality, 3 parts bloody-mindedness, and 4 parts delusion. Shake Well.

Where do you think the marketeers come from?
I'm wondering if the research is into new antibiotics that aren't being resisted yet (kicking the can down the road), or if they are looking at new methodologies for attacking bacteria.
Or are they just going to dust off some Russian research on bacteriophages?
Given the way that viability/re-usability seems to fall in proportion to the rise in levels, Hex-level Cell will be accurate for six level.
Single-, Multi-, Three-, and now Quad-level Cell. I seriously doubt they will name the next one Quint. From the preceding chain, I can discern no consistent naming convention, so I would guess the name will be something "logical" like Quad Plus One Level Cell (Q+1LC). Or they may do a repeat and have "Five Level Cell (FLC)" and do the +1 bit on the six-banger, as otherwise it will have a collision with Single Level Cell.
Obligatory Bill Hicks marketing quote.
We all know it.
Damn you! - Wait, is this a Linux, Mac, or Windows Malware? I need to know which format command to type in.

The router worked perfectly to deny the (possible?) DDOS - If there is no service, it cannot be denied.
Because that word has been used several times in El Reg, in both articles and comments.
It also bears remembering that the US bans Kinder Eggs on safety grounds, yet seems to belive that guns & ammo are safe.
Or they believe that people are mature and responsible enough to handle fire arms, but not enough to not choke on a well-advertised toy inside of chocolate.
Full analysis takes time, and you also need many "runs" so that you can trace the paths.
If they had blown the whistle PDQ, they could have gotten a fraction of the people running the scam, by letting it run for 2-3 months (and presumably logging the transactions, frauds, and scams) they nabbed the whole "company" and have records that could cause the victims to claim restitution.
Also, if watching, investigating, and gather evidence counted as accessory, then every LEO ever would also be guilty.
And also to extract the urine from the commetariat.
Companies I have to do business with (if you have kidney stones, you will be visiting a urologist) require and keep my info, and then fail on security.
I try to keep my info secure, but it feels like I'm pissing in the wind.
The back of a rolling paper?
Ah, but that becomes infeasible when you have a "Print & Hold" where you send the job and provide a PIN, then it won't start printing until you enter the PIN at the printer so that "sensitive documents" don't get left sitting on the printer while you are getting on with something else.

I went Veg for a bout a year in my youth. I did not do it well; and did not get anywhere near the amount of protein needed for continued health. I learned that a lack of protein, say from living on microwaved potatoes for years, can seriously impact brain function. I quit being a vegetarian when an acquaintance asked why I had gone veggie, and I had no answer. I could not remember why I had made the decision to cut out all meat. I knew it was a big enough reason to justify a major life-style change, but I had no idea what it was.
So it is very possible that your house mate could not remember how long to nuke a potato, due to poor nutrition.
A bit of How's yer father, and Bob's yer uncle.
I was looking to replace a Note 4, which has gotten waterlogged a few times (rice + time + battery removal = it's not dead yet) and sometimes acts weird. I liked the idea of the waterproofing on the 7, but the fixed battery means that it would be good for no more than 2 years, more likely a year and a half - even without spills.
I guess I'll just keep the rice handy.
Isn't anthrax a bacterium, nearly as complex as yeast? I don't think you could program yeast to make anthrax.
Not that that would stop the knee-jerk banning of The Box, so I guess your point still stands.
The difference is that yeast freezes well; Some drugs - not so much.
Rather than keeping, say, an anti-malarial around for a few years and having to toss it when it passes it's expiry date, you keep the yeast-beasties frozen/desiccated and they don't expire. just add water and chemical triggers, and you have fresh anti-malarial drugs. Also, shipping a gram of yest is a lot cheaper than shipping in 100Kg of serum.
Forget the arguments. They could live-stream their office's innovative approach to making tea.
I think that would be a bit too traumatic - even for the Web.
And then they will change the name to Alphabet....
Chastity is not having sex out side of marriage; celibacy is not getting married.
Both of these will prevent "legitimate" heirs capable of inheriting position/wealth/power (except in the case of a couple of Popes)
I was celibate until I was married; then I was chaste.
I don't think exposing a hypocritical stance counts as an ad hominem.
