Re: And he is sooooo quick...
Something about rooting.
And he is sooooo quick...
to forget the wonderful, marvellous Jabe.
God, I'd have been happy getting a splinter from her.
Re: I was more worried about the complete lack of people...
Maybe... a lot of a lot of a lot of people turned into trees and then turned back at the end.
I was more worried about the complete lack of people...
(1) You are not allowed on the streets unless you started your journey with a camera crew.
(2) You are not allowed on the streets unless you are armed forces or police making a specific plot point.
Re: Rubbish science
At 15, I'd never have managed a post that long... unless I had developed a method of typing one handed, of course.
So how else did you...
think "handover" worked?
If I recall correctly, the blurb goes along the lines of "Start an email or a document on one device and finish it on another."
Not a surprise.
I would be worried, however, if Handover was a feature you could turn off and this still happened when this was done.

What are doing, Carrot?
Re: Finally, a Good Episode
On the other hand, Bristol, Saturday night, up against the wall... 2D-porn.
We've already seem Missy relaxing in Paradise, aka The Walled Garden from the Handbot episode.
Re: Take off the sign saying POLICE
Taxi? You'd have to have an assistant called Carla. Sorry, Clara.
Re: Finally, a Good Episode
So, some 2D monsters who only know about us from the tyre tracks and footprints left on the pavement decide to let rip on the people of Bristol. Why? What could the people of Bristol have done to the pavement that so miffs off a species that it breaks the third wall and sets out on a jihad against anything 3D? Possibly all the pavement pizzas left on a Saturday night. Yeah. That'd do it.
Re: Major takeaway points
Time to drag the Hornby gear out from under the bed... it's next to the Airfix TARDIS kit... How come they made an episode of Doctor Who with the contents of my bedroom?
Re: For the people who didn't like it...
I've spent the last 7 years training myself not to blink.
Re: >"what will happen with another mass like the earth just 400.000 km away"
Doesn't gravitic field strength follow an inverse square law? So, if you had something with the mass of the Earth, but the size of a pea embedded in a lump of pumice, then the field strength at the surface of the pumice would be... what?
Re: There's something wrong with the gravity
The BBC drops a Uranium Clanger?
Perhaps it was a creature that sucked in a fleck of neutron star matter through a white hole or a worm hole, or something?
Mind you... the brief glimpse we got of the creature in the sky was a touch Cthulu. Or FSM.
This tripe after a reasonable start by way of delivering a couple of factual facts during the show...
I have to say...
(1) Worst. Episode. Ever.
(2) Still waiting for the reveal where it's shown that the whole story took place in the fevered imagination of Lil' Miss Stroppy-pants as she was heaving chunks into the helmic regulator compartment. I mean, she should have listened in science class about conservation of mass, right?

Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.
You now have 15 seconds to comply.
You are in direct violation of Penal Code 1.13, Section 9.
You have 5 seconds to comply.
Four... three... two... one... I am now authorized to use physical force!
Re: Putting the Mars into Marxist
"Still at 99p maybe it's still worth a punt on the first "
If I had 99p in my pocket on a trip to WH Smiths, I'd be most likely putting a brown mars into the front of my face. And still have change.
Well they said...
it was an exclusive event. I guess they were referring to the media deal.
Re: So what's the actual problem?
I tried poking a Nexus-6 the other day, but she beat me up and then her boyfriend rammed my head through the partition wall.
Pretty much the same as the basic PAT, then.
Re: Phat Aluminium?
It's actually an alloy.
Re: So what's the actual problem?
You see, from a design point of view, it's inconceivable that anyone would WANT to put their shiny away. Should be permanently attached to the body somehow... on some kind of wristband, maybe.
Yes... A DHL aquatic drone...
Eine flotte von der unterseeboot gut werden würde. Der Wolf-package.
No stars up there?
Excellent! In space, no one can hear Simply Red.
There's more than one mistake. For example, the "airlock" space between the detachable command module and the also detachable mission module is missing in most of the Eagle interior filming - the bit where the hexapod landing and manoeuvring thrusters attach to the lifting body... in most of the interior shots the cockpit is directly behind the module forward door.
But what a space ship!
When I saw the headline...
I thought it was going to be about the Microsoft license agreement and something about them all having signed agreements worded UK and that, therefore, after a YES vote, the country would no longer be licensed to run and Microsoft product, and would be sued into oblivion by M$, who then take over the entire country and enslave the population to make Argyle tablet warmers for Surface Pros and tiny bottles of promotional M$ whiskey...
Re: On a cloudless day...
I see a market for WiFi or Bluetooth enabled pocket HDDs / SSDs with a rechargeable battery pack built in. Not that a two box solution is the best option, of course, but you know...
Re: Could it work in a real home though?
... vials of ricin under the sofa...
Re: ... so the same as the Electrolux Trilobite then...
Contra-rotating drum / clothes shredder? Yeah. How are those nowadays? And the Dyson air-slice that slices and skins your hand using hot air whilst simultaneously deafening anything within 10 yards?
Re: I'm a slob...
Judging by the room space in the promo video, there will be a lot of unemployed cleaners at IKEA stores across the land. Fleet of these patrolling the idealised, minimalistic neo-spaces of their warehouses... actually, will they play nice with other Dysobots?
Re: Battery Life
A roll of AA's inserted anally...
Or for the extreme user, a couple of lantern batteries.
Re: Let's see...
Joe was adopted
That explains why the professor was willing to let him climb a 1000ft transmitter mast, cheek the Ruskies, go scuba diving in enemy waters, defuse a bomb etc etc.
A pair of glasses that gives you instant access to a whole library of skills, experience and knowledge.
Joe 90 for the WIN.
Advance the design?
It'll be a Big Trak dragging a DC02 around, you watch.
Re: This will be great @Kurt 5
Was it waiting for you to dislodge a small vial of ricin?

A pint of Budweiser is like making love to a beautiful woman on the deck of Festival Pier.
Both fucking close to water.
There's a spike in the GPS system...
Somehow it seems familiar, the idea of...
a couple of guys heading out into the New Mexico desert in an RV to do something slightly dodgy and dangerous which involves chemicals and film cameras.
Re: Perhaps some novelty but...
Only if they were using DHCP configured DNS and not a DNS configured in the OS or in, say, a security conscious browser, or an IP address hard coded into an update or software delivery application.
As ane fule no...
the moon is blue. Except for the bits that are made of green cheese. And sometimes it's red, blood red. If that happens when it is rising, then it's a bad moon. It's also silvery.
Well I have to say that ...
I have seen less attractive sculptures on display at the Royal Academy before.
