Surely any date/time format other than YYMMDD HH:MM:SS is illogical?
I bought the DVD version of Battlestar Galactica some years back, and it's well worth a watch. Tails off a bit towards the end, but the story of how they first encounter their own civilization's outposts, and then other civilizations, isn't bad.
And there was too much garam masala. It wasn't too hot, just too "powdery". Maybe I should have been using level teaspoons instead of heaped. And I didn't have any tomatoes so I used a red (bell) pepper.
Someone else who has spent a significant amount of time in Ahmedabad. I'm hoping not to ever go back. 46 degrees at 6pm...
The best episode of the series so far IMHO.
I was expecting something like some sort of electric motor assist, or an electric supercharger.
Not only was the egg physically larger than the creature, it was laid immediately after the creature was born. Some of the Steven Moffat scripts were excellent, but they were all when Russell T Davies was the showrunner.
I ordered mine on Friday (from EE) and it turned up on Monday. Actually they tried to deliver it on Saturday. Been using it all week. My minimum contract term ended in July so rather than get a 5S I thought I'd hold out for the 6. It's OK but I'm not impressed with the camera sticking out of the back or the back cover in general -- I thought the zenith was reached with the glass-backed 4/4S.
Why don’t they keep the business running for another year, make another £100m and use the time to find another partner or business model? Or have EE terminated the agreement with immediate effect?
Watch should have been round. Square watches went out in the 1970s. Although I wouldn’t say no to a Jaeger Reverso.
Isn't this what SRWare Iron does?
I think the "outplacement counselling and assistance" is a legal requirement. Bear in mind that the "outplacement counselling and assistance" company is probably charging £1k+/day.
"Open for All" and "Women". I see no problem there, do you? Reminds me of when I worked at a company who offered up a "Black Engineer of the Year" award.
And the sound quality is terrible.
The Onion covered this a while back http://www.theonion.com/video/cias-facebook-program-dramatically-cut-agencys-cos,19753/
Tech PM at 75k+bens perm -- get yourself on a PRINCE2 or PMI course
News this morning was saying 3-5km deep
As a myopic, I couldn't get it to fit with my glasses on, nor could I see the display with them off.
We don't normally refer to "The NASA".
Purveyors of the world's tackiest watches. Could get a decent Patek Phillipe, Jaeger le Coutre, etc. for the prices that J&Co charge.
These are phones disguised to look like car remotes. Why would a prisoner need a car remote?
What's wrong with lossless compression, like LZW? Memory is cheap and data buses are fast these days.
What is this Xerox device if not a printer combined with a high quality scanner?
In the UK at least, dividends are distributed after taxation so your argument doesn't stand up.
Was the RSO asleep?
I went up there in 2003 and got a fantastic panorama pic of the London skyline by sticking my camera in the window and getting it to take a picture every minute. The gherkin was under construction at the time.
But you also have a crap phone
Got this for £189.99 from Halfords (currently showing out of stock) *plus* Garmin will give you £30 cashback making it a bargain for £159.99
Looks like they've stolen the front from a Mitsubishi Lancer
Surely there are solar panels on both sides of those surfaces? Surely...
It doesn't seem to be beyond the wit of golf buggy manufacturers to make electric buggies that last for 4 hours+ rounds of golf. Are these ones weighed down by heavy weapons?
I followed the instructions to create a bootable Lion USB drive, but slightly more than 4GB is required which necessitates an 8GB drive.
I understood this drive also allows you to upgrade Leopard->Lion without buying Snow Leopard, which may explain the price discrepancy.
Are you expecting the flight control tests that you conduct at sea level to translate to performance in the upper atmosphere, or are you planning some kind of reaction control system at high altitude?
This looks a fair bit bigger than its predecessor the ICON (my third Jawbone headset). Is it just an illusion or does the motion-sensitive gubbins take up the extra space?
If your VAT quarter ended in February, you have until 7th April to file your return (and send your payment) if you're doing it online.
Not so good if you like to push these things to the wire.
"This Week" managed to roll out Katherine Hamnett (fashion designer) as their nuclear 'expert'.
LOL, just LOL.
After all the standard advice of not writing down PINs, these companies make it easier by using PINs that are already written down. And on the token itself!
I used to laugh because my great gran had the password to her money box etched into the top surface, but now it's SOP? LOL.
I'm pretty sure I've been using tablets with a cover with a built-in keyboard for at least 10 years now. What's clever is that the folding mechanism is designed so that the keys and the screen are on the 'inside' and hence protected from damage.
Five parts, surely? Six if you count the recent one by Eoin Colfer
iOS as used in the iPhone and iPad offers no browser of local files. I suspect that OS X may start going the same way with Lion. For most (non techie) people the file browser and hierarchical folder structure is irrelevant. I'm not sure I concur, but I do increasingly find myself storing everything in a single directory and searching for it rather than navigating to it.
Ethernet over copper between buildings is a big no-no due to the two earths not necessarily being the same. You should have done it properly with some optical transceivers and a length of optical fibre across the field, suitably armoured of course.
Surely a race to infinity is one where the end will never get any nearer, and is thus ultimately pointless?
So that 3600 shekels to 20, or 180:1 fuel:oxidizer? Doesn't sound like stochiometric to me.
Blizzard and Activision are now the same company.
@steward: that'll be why it's called the Red Crescent in Muslim countries
