Re: Cue cross-dressing lumberjacks

Dear Sir,

I wish to complain on the strongest possible terms about the previous entry in this file about the lumberjack who wears womens' clothes. Some of my best friends are lumberjacks, and only a FEW of them are transvestites.

Yours faithfully,

Brigadier Sir Charles Arthur Strong, Mrs.

P.S. I have never kissed the editor of the radio times.

Re: Time out a second here, Skippy

"Later, during the hearing, Kelsey made what some critics may consider to be an outrageous claim. He said: "If 90 per cent opt out [of care.data], we won't have an NHS.""

To me, that didn't sound so much like a claim, as it did a warning.

Re: Comments Locked on El Reg - Why?

I'll let you off then. I was starting to suspect a GCHQ/NSA joint strike force had started to put the pressure on the media to stop the sheeple from discussing such matters. But that could just be my paranoia...

Re: See this website for details of what's happening and how to opt out...

My GP's surgery had a stack of leaflets made up from the details supplied on www.care-data.info, which the nice lady at reception had to resupply because everyone in front of me had taken a copy. These had the "fill in details" section on them already there to be filled in, very handy.

Just thought I would share.

Space Station bags extra 10yrs of life as SOLAR STORM scrubs resupply

Re: Oh crap.

>You don't need a permanent space station to put someone in space for six months.

True, but you do need a space station to put someone in space for six months with a reasonable amount of comfort.

>Plus, the Russians had already done it with Solyut and Mir

Again true, but that doesn't mean that it shouldn't be repeated. For Science!

>no ISS astronaut have beaten Solyakov's record of 437 consecutive days in space

I wasn't aware that this was a competition, something that had to be "won". Not to belittle Polyakov's achievement, but the more often we send people up, for extended periods of time, the more data we have on the degredation of the human body whilst in space, which enables the boffo's to add a little more to the long term survivability of the human race's adventures to explore the Great Beyond™.

For Science!

We may be missing something central to the story here...

...and that's the fact that the young girl took her own life.

Now I don't claim to be an expert about this sort of stuff, but is it possible, just a teensy bit, that this girl may have had an underlying mental health condition that was undiagnosed or not noticed by either her family or (irl) friends, that meant when she was harassed she would be prepared to overcome one of the greatest biological imperitives (that of living) to escape said harassment?

I mean, if every teenager/young adult/adult responded in the same fashion the suicide rate here would be a damn sight higher than it is, yes?

My sympathy goes out to the family/friends for their loss, and I can't ever imagine what it would be like losing someone close to me in that manner (whether they be sibling, child, partner or friend), but does this not highlight a different issue here that is being overlooked in favour of news grabbing headlines/scaremongering/political manoeuvring/won't somebody think of the children type vitriol, that being the wellbeing of individuals mental health? I don't mean to belittle the parents situation, but instead of giving interviews to the bbc and all or sundry about "interwebz site is evil, it should be shut down" and allowing the likes of "Just Call Me Dave" to exploit the situation for their own political gain and advantage, should they not be closing ranks with their family to allow themselves time to grieve?

Just sayin...

Re: "on every device"

"So, Dave, me old mate, hows *that* going to work ? And how do you force these "filters" onto someone like me, who builds their own PC, OS-free ?"

How do you get your components/parts to build your PCs? Computer fairs? The likes of Maplins? Other online sources?

Who are the manufacturers of these parts? How much effort is it for these manufacturers to incorporate something into the hardware that would enable this sort of "filtering"?

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/07/29/lenovo_accused_backdoors_intel_ban/

How long before it would become illegal to buy components/parts that are not from an "authorised" reseller, that would be mandated by the authorities?

How much of a stretch would it be to be able to achieve something like this?

Be warned, what is currently happening could be the door opening to bigger things...

"I managed to end Metal Gear Solid killing only the bosses. And MG3 without killing anyone."

Wait, what? How did you manage that on Snake Eater? I get that you can avoid the sniper guy entirely (save game and exit, don't play for a week, come back and he's died of old age), but I didn't think there were similar methods for the other bosses. Unless your talking about the stamina kills, but they are still kills?
