You don't want the communists getting hold of that!
That always terrifies the clergy...
I take it you work in Telesales?
I can't decide whether to upvote or downvote this - should I laugh or cry?
Well said, Minister
If it doesn't take off commercially, maybe have a siding that points up, launch passengers into low orbit?
only a few days ago brilliant sunshine coincided with hail showers, I've seen sunshine with snow, rain and once with fog. What we seldom have is unbroken sunshine but it takes a fraction of a second to take a photo like that one.
But once the UK leaves Europe, won't it make more sense to standardise on German?
More controversially, the UK government have spoken about introducing "border control-like things" on the more easily policed sea and air routes from Northern Ireland to Great Britain.
Out government probably don't have the capacity to steer the country effectively through a set of orange cones laid out in the Leinster House car park but if they keep their mouths shut and do nothing it should sort itself out in time.
please amend to "Economist David McWilliams" or clarify that the respect is largely self generated. In fairness he also predicted the Irish Economy's collapse in 1998, 2002 and 2005 before being proven right in 2007.
Aside from the source, I agree with the general theme of the article. Our Common Travel Area should protect us from the worst of the cross border freeze, while our tech and financial sectors should benefit from the collapse of the UK as an EU trade centre.
Good name, I'd have gone with "Belgrano" as having more recent resonance.
* Garfield didn't need that limitation
The two term limit is more of a guideline*
Useful against customs agents, police, muggers, kidnappers etc.
"I want people who look at complex systems and can break them down quickly, the ones who understand different types of application interactions and who understand the difference between IOPS, latency and throughput."
or auto delete the folder contents at regular intervals?
I think I read recently that the Swedish Supreme Court ruled that posting sex tapes online wasn't defamation "because it is normal for adults to have sex".
Consenting adult has consenting adultery, what's Flash's problem?
Does that mean they're optional? I'd certainly be keen to wear one if I was flying it.
Take the mask off, Donald, we can see your 'hair' over the top anyway
I assume you mean of the US and infer that no-one will care if the asteroid hits their Pacific coast?
I have WPS Office on all my android devices and find it quite acceptable. The only thing missing from Android for me is a JRE to run a few cross platform java apps (and large enough memory).
But can they make the US pay for it?
Until the first cats move in, then it'll go to...
" The arcology dwellers have evolved a different culture, sacrificing privacy - there are cameras even in the private apartments - in exchange for security. The residents are fiercely loyal to the arcology and its management, and the loyalty runs both ways"
So long as you're a Canadian, you're OK inside and out.
Public toilets allow anyone in. You can use a urinal or a cubicle. The only difference is the plumbing. Why does it have to be more complicated?
or the World of Poo?
I don't know the case but it sounds like he didn't make any money from doing this and that no-one was harmed. I would have thought that a fine and maybe some community service teaching the elderly to use computers would be more appropriate.
I've seen it done once, years ago.
Have we met?
to build a Berlin type wall along the Irish border? I can think of lots of benefits.
It's great having a package manager but if it can't provide packages...
Why not "Excelsior"?
It means you're not expecting a robot when you check into a hotel, so you crap yourself when it starts moving towards you.
There was a good balance of women in IT before the 90's but the hacker-kid image started putting a barrier to entry and a lot of the low end InfoSec jobs (where anyone good starts out) perpetuate that image. As with the general talent problem, I think they need to hire outside the mainstream of IT, people with the right mindset and talents who need a little extra technical skills to fill the role, rather than those with the technical skills and try to develop their mindset.
In fairness, it sounds like there was a chance they could stop someone getting any older, hence the legal involvement.
Two very well paid financial analyst types had them installed, electrically adjusting height as required.
Day 1: both desks raised morning and afternoon for alternate hours
Day 2: desk 1 up morning and afternoon, desk 2 morning only
Day 3: desk 1 up morning only, desk 2 at seated height all day
Day 4: both desks raised when a colleague visited to show them off, otherwise no height change
Day 5+ : desks were in, lets call it powersaving mode, workers were in seated mode
I just remembered Charles Stross comment in the Atrocity Archives about MI5 renaming internally to DI5 in the early 80's so that freedom of information requests get mis-directed to the maintenance department (renamed MI5) who can honestly state that they're holding no information on the inquirer.
All pubs must be Irish.
Also airlines, cloud hosting and pharmaceuticals.
Or should I did out my micro-drives?
as I recall
at using a generic password that doesn't change for years than at wearing a nappy in public
If they can be made big enough, they can defend Scottish airspace after Engxit.
Upvote for the NTNOCN reference, one of my all-time favourites.
Danish Police? Maybe asking politely but repeatedly...
