$299 vs £350
Shurely taking the piss even with VAT on the £?
they have not ordered it.... (what the f*ck is this pre-order sh*t)?
Actually HP printers led then world. Laser was based on a Canon technology but a great example of technology enhancement. Ink certainly an HP leader - other technologies do exist... Printers were and are a massive success for many of their users.
Not at all. I could not give a sh*t about most web behaviour. But use porn and then KILL others for the same offence - yes I think many people have an issue
'"Assessment report on radicalization indicated that radicalizers appear to be particularly vulnerable in the area of authority when their private and public behaviors are not consistent,” the October 2012 document argues.'
And quite right too. Justification of bombings and beheadings based on the "what we say not what we do" needs to be challenged. As do our local (for me) UK politicians and business "leaders" behaviour.
""That processor was designed by a very small team of only four engineers," he said, "one of whom designed the instruction set, one of whom did the microarchitecture, and two others who assisted with the designing of the supporting chipset." That tiny team produced the processor in 14 months, and it first ran code in Acorn's offices in Cambridge on 26 April, 1985. "And ARM still occupies that office."
Saxby was important - subsequently. But I love the way the "iginuurs" are typically unnamed!
Re: So when
that is subject as opposed to citizen.......

and that would be exactly what (other than rapidly escaping hot air)?
You kid not. As a grad student supervising electronics and physics lab sessions that involved an oscilloscope and power supply that was ALWAYS the first question.
Re: The Master
Some of us took it as a crude but at the same time wonderfully enjoyable kick to Tony Blair's balls. Well we all enjoyed it without having to over analyse.....
Mine still does and it still works - the 74 series TTL is very tuff.. Hex pad and leds
Lets face it
it was more than air gapped…..
A very reasonable approach. Given place of design crossed with place of manufacture. Who would be wary (do the probabity

iPlayer on a number of platforms still allows you to do this. Only for video rather than radio though which requires a little workaround

At any rate they need to be earning in order to keep you in accessories and upgrades.....

Vikings my dear boy, Vikings. The correlation is clear and unambiguous
If you could tag 'individual' bit coins then that would surely invalidate their use as an anonymous currency....
Re: that's the problem with anecdotal evidence
well we did once have a problem with a coffin and contents :-)
that's the problem with anecdotal evidence
In our experience couriers are crap (finding the house, leaving the stiff....) and RM are really very very good. But as they used to say YMMV
Re: Its the corruption, stupid!
Of course there is no corruption. The rtical exit of ,many top civil servants and military personnel happens to be directed at the upper (paid) echelons of large government suppliers (of course it goes without saying that politicians make use of the same doors).
So that's ok then, no corruption thinkable.
Re: Gliese 581d, getting there
I think the issue was "sufficient genetic diversity" :-)
Re: @Real Ale is Best - I really dislike dyson
You misunderstand insurance then. The Dyson charge is a fixed price if/when it breaks we'll come out and fix it deal. Not insurance.
well as he/she is being disciplined
it was probably information that brought the force into disrepute - the truth about their search?
Re: Your element interests me
I'll go for a bid of 119 - that's going to get all of those theorists going (hey work where work comes)
Re: Fifth Element
True lies had its moments - unfortunately too may of them unpleasantly misogynist, Harrier scenes terrifically amusing, JLK being effectively tortured by her husband not so much......
What was interesting was the speed with which they worked out where the jamming device was. The implication being that (a) it was anticipated and (b) there was the equipment and people capable of operating it available.
Not sure I would have made that public.....
Re: torrent it
Odd. We have been watching it off Linux (Ubuntu) for many months.
"one of Oracle Team USA's monster AC72 catamarans in training for this year’s cup capsized, with both boat and crew in need of rescuing."
I think that if you check your facts you will find that Andrew Simpson died.(http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/20/sports/americas-cup-changes-are-sought-after-death-of-sailor.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0). Skunk mods to an already monster machine?
Re: "3D films are increasingly becoming the standard"
I'm with you and Kermode on that one (2011 - http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2010/apr/11/3d-avatar-hollywood)
why the downvote?
* historical accuracy?
* inappropriate language (it's before the Cameron watershed)?
Re: Richard Taylor 2
I am not arguing about the right to call Linux Unix. But using your analogy, I would argue that for all practical purposes if the Champagne region got their first and other people copied/cloned, then Sparkling Wines are based on Champagne. That does not mean they use the grapes and/or finished product but just that the philosophy, structure (and in the case of Linux a lot of quite important philosophical decisions, utility management and for want of a better term - APIs) are based on Unix. Torvalds says so, Stallman says so, and while those are of course just opinions, i think they carry weight in the definition of 'based'.
I have just completed a review of an (unnamed) UK government departments proposal to shift some of their service out to a 'cloudish' provider. The statements about availability, recovery time and recovery point objectives made by the vendor were balls. Bringing the vendor up to the standard apparently (I use this term reservedly - much of the customers requirements seem to come more from a heavy session in a pub near Whitehall than needs) almost tripled the cost of the service.
The problem is that the bean counters just don't understand the business and also have little idea about valuing lost time and lost data (provided it does not embarrass too much a junior minister).
Re: Richard Taylor 2
Well, "If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, then if not a duck, and if is proceeds the duck then it probably is based on one'. From the kernel README,
"Linux is a Unix clone written from scratch by Linus Torvalds with
assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net.
It aims towards POSIX compliance. " (from Linux kernel release 2.0.xx)
I can't swear that Torvalds actually wrote the above, but I'm sure he would have objected if it was incorrect. If something is considered a 'clone' then surely it i based on the original?
SCO's gripe is over code apparently copied from V (I think) to Linux - how's that going - but by a reasonable definition based upon is a perfectly good description.
Read what you quote before snarking - Ubuntu is Unix based, official
a few years later in the amusing 'A Quantum Murder' - Hamilton
They are only woofing! What is the market - photographers who need a phone (and are prepared to put up with an appaling shape and bulk for no good photographic effect) or telephone users who would like a little more glass on the back?
Re: "Could rise again?"
Davis does have an IT background - by degree. As importantly he has a proper libertarian nose for interference - be that state or private sector. I don't agree with some of his other stands, but he is consistent on this and not beholden to the powers that befuddle minor politicians such as Cameron and May.
Although a LibDem, not a bad specimen of same - let down by the Orange Bookers in his party. He at least is technically literate - and better understands enough tp realise when it's worth while talking to others. He has been consistent, even if he has not fouled his liff up in quite as spectacular a way as Snowden. Let's face it these awards are all about a free dinner for the ISPs Soc to get legless.

Nope, wrong decision, read first line again tomorrow before you commit
actually provide a damn good service at a very competitive price. Better than their standalone partner and far better for the non business user than Orange for example
Re: Nose Section
It certainly looked as though a 'chute was being deployed
Only the old fashioned sort. Our new high technology time pieces ith digital displays don't even manage that.

I'm very sorry but who told you that practitioners of that dismal science can count? They do not have a good record (and even the ones with 1/3 of an E, having slept through PP don't remember their primary school education).
