There is a market

Re: Not for me.
I just need to remember mine - holds a 'auto wind' for 48 hours or so
Re: The fat lady has sung
Please go back to your basic science books and work out what the difference between an hypothesis and a theory is. Then re-read. Then explain notions of probability and 'fact'. Then rethink your post.
Re: Misleading headline
Sorry - had to read that a second time, very good (as news of yet more people are released from long jail sentences - this time in the US, because the prosecution couldn't remember what evidence they had)
Re: As far as i can tell...
Nope - it's 'Don't Ask, Won't Tell"
I have to say
As a series brilliant, totally brilliant. The last episode hmmmmmm
Re: "Telepresence robots." Hmm.
I have to say that I have gone through butlers at a hell of a rate - just can't trust them to keep their hands of the little woman
Very good - better than me
But I did manage 13 minutes with OSX - the point at the end of this when you start to describe the screen and menus to the caller is worth it....
Strawman arguments - who funded the 'study;?
Re: Reminds me of ...
Even April 2 - 1
We have always found that attaching two DVDs to the feet of our birds (symmetry gives stability) a great boon. SSDs next, it's all a matter of delivery success - damn hawks....
Re: When I were a lad ...
not to tie it to the door?

Not that they seem to be ill fed :-)
I think the HMRC version
took early retirement and went to work with his 'customers'
both reviewed and been an 'associate' (read my organisation has a joint programme - deal with it) with NESTA in the past. They do some very interesting stuff, BUT, far too much in the past was driven by individual ministerial interests, and far too much relies on the impact projects will have on their management layers. Charity allows no FOI - wonderful and a way to avoid past excesses.

""The 1859 storm...."
Yeah, when comms were unshielded and power grids unmanaged and unprotected against, well, ANYTHING."
And of course did not rely on unshielded electronics, or satellites or.....
And now make a little money out of it :=-)
Well deserved but...
"Along with this, Lamport also helped develop LaTeX, the typesetting software and markup language used widely in the sciences,"
No - a set of macros, based on TeX, by Kn?th anyone?
"Sadly, these innovative aids are only available for the Galaxy Core Advance, not for Samsung's more popular high-end smartphones, particularly those with larger screens."
Many people who can use this could not give a flyink f***k about the screen - think about it.
Well done Samsung
Re: No shit Sherlock
I sat behind two Sun sales people (hey this is a little while back) on a flight across the pond. It was very revealing. Company ethics were firm and I did talk to someone from our legal team in Palo Alto. Result - I had to be very quiet and very careful. They did take it seriously.
Re: Subject START ....... More tittilation is clearly the way to go.
Hmmm - you might want to cut down on the coffee
well - the German language has a very fine
word to describe the discomfort Congress are in and many peoples feelings about their lack of oversight - schadenfreude
Re: This is great!
The problem of course being that most modern cars have functionality nailed?

I have always thought that when my fruit gets furby I recycle it - or eat it.....

Apparently Ms Wade did not realise that phone hacking was illegal - honest.....

Re: Good "books" my arse!
I'm always inspired by Tom Lehrers take on that - even better the the elements! (and still up to date)
Be prepared! that's the boy scout's marching song,
Be prepared! as through life you march along.
Be prepared to hold your liquor pretty well,
Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell.
Be prepared! to hide that pack of cigarettes,
Don't make book if you cannot cover bets.
Keep those reefers hidden where you're sure
That they will not be found
And be careful not to smoke them
When the scoutmaster's around
For he only will insist that it be shared.
Be prepared! that's the boy scouts' solemn creed,
Be prepared! and be clean in word and deed.
Don't solicit for your sister, that's not nice,
Unless you get a good percentage of her price.
Be prepared! and be careful not to do
Your good deeds when there's no one watching you.
If you're looking for adventure of a
New and different kind,
And you come across a girl scout who is
Don't be nervous, don't be flustered, don't be scared.

"You have to love the irony though:
Putting a death warrant on someone for potentially committing suicide.."
well for all the potential faults, a Fatwa is *not* a death warrant. It's important to be accurate about these things when we need to criticise them. Otherwise you get shot down on detail as opposed to intent/effect.
Re: Reliant Robin?
"They were awesome for pulling wheelies though, with the seat right over the back wheel!"
Never managed that in a Robin!
Re: Douglas Adams
Although it would be good to supplement the quote with another....
"You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to the building plans had you? I mean like actually telling anyone or anything.'
But the plans were on display.'
On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.'
`That's the display department.'
`With a torch.'
`Ah, well the lights had probably gone.'
`So had the stairs.'
`But look you found the notice didn't you?'
`Yes,' said Arthur, `yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying "Beware of The Leopard".'"
Re: In the words of Ron Swanson:
Nah, a dog has to be able to be sat on without major injury. Many terriers - fine dogs - fit the description and are < 50lb.
and the electronics, guidance system, software - oh dear. Great cooperation, but do not be naive!
Re: Not quite the same
"He was stopped and found to be carrying information contrary to UK law."
Other than it was encrypted, I do not think so
It is hardly surprising
A combination of DMA and natural mistrust (hey I am paranoid) of media companies to retain your access to music says it all. Does anyone else remember the great success of those self destructing DVDs (no need to return to base). I buy it, I own it - at least I want to own the right to carry on listening to it. So for the moment, physical backup it is......
Re: Anyone for Die Hard 4.0?
where's the icon for downing a VSTOL jet with a police car (or even a lorry)?
Re: Be afraid...
There are 6502 based machines running complex machine instrumentation systems that are responsible for processing/finishing aircraft turbine blades. I know cos I was responsible for much of the design and implementation of one model 20+ years ago and was recently asked to give some expert advice on the data gathering and potential instabilities at edges of the operating envelope. I believe the company sold at least 300 of them around the world.
Re: If it ain't broken ...
I have been told very amusing story (reputable source from the company - although I have no reference), about an IBM building being decommissioned in New York (state). A quietly chuntering machine was found in the basement - origin IBM, purpose unknown. After many days of fruitless enquiries they shut it down. Promptly the local sub-grid on the power died. Not a problem of single use (except that it had probably been doing a very efficient job), just one of documentation.
Re: If it ain't broken ...
A very fine comment. The illusion that is generated by people believing that software is infinitely flexible - and therefore should be treated as such creates much damage
Re: RE Hoover / Hoovers
Not very good Labs then if you have to ask them :-)
Re: I'm just dipping my toe back into the smartphone water.
ahh - the 6310i - still going strong
Re: Dark water?
You don't think the relatively low pressure/gravity might help?
Re: It's a people problem
Actually, better than that. Vey presentable lady (sorry lads but it's true) carrying Struggling with) a large pile of papers gets someone through many 'security' doors.

Or even just thinking about the consequences beyond the first strike.....
Re: It only exists to let BAe be a player
And you really think that was the first flight (snigger)
Re: Small soldiers
Quite. While amusing, the intention to deploy the rogue elements in a South American country with interests that differed from the US said it all. Murder by proxy, murder by toy soldier. (I am of course talking about Toy Soldiers :-)
