Yes! Put them under the roads!
1) No unsightly cables
2) HEATED roads -- no icy accidents in winter
3) Council/Gas board will ONLY dig up the road when they ABSOLUTELY have to, and then only as little area as they need to!

Re: I'm reminded of NASA's convention
Reminds me of the Mitchell and Webb sketch where the pompous brain surgeon introduces himself to the NASA engineer.
Thank the gods they didn't do it like they do their dates!
Maybe it's time to try cyanogenmod. I think it's supported and maintained on more nexus devices than google maintains raw Android.

There was clearly a space before the '*' which means it would match

Actually it's both. Originally invented for US military (I think) and adopted for genuinely fixing ducting together, there is now a branded Duck tape too. Either way, it and sugru have it covered!

Re: Dont stare at the sun
Well, if you see it slowly going dark then you'll know to turn away. Or at least put your sunglasses on. Time to cancel that probe to Europa too.
Start the home-made video, and at 14 seconds in start the one with the alien in it.
Then watch the background blobs.
They are spookily similar for some time. Don't know if this is just the same algorithm having been used, but if you watch them together you can see why they got automatically got flagged up.
Cheaper alternative to truecall
Is CPR Call blocker. One with a display and one without, both with pre-programmed known marketing numbers and you can add new numbers during or just after a call (or add in new numbers). You can also optionally set interntational or withheld or no-info numbers to be blocked. It's not exactly the same as truecall but it has a similar aim.

This actually ties in with my idea of burying all high voltage cables under roads to
a) remove unsightly power lines
b) underheat roads so they don't get ice
c) make DAMN sure no-one digs up a road unnecessarily!

Copy and paste from the source -- it's the only way!
Talk about cr*p journalism
The article says (and uses quotation marks):
' “Linux clients are not affected if they run in a case-insensitive filesystem,” the service's warning reads'
whereas the warning actually reads
'Linux clients are not affected if they run in a case-sensitive filesystem.'
I'd correct that pronto.

+1 for John Lewis Customer Service
I got a price match for John Lewis online and a quick delivery (in fact they reduced the price in general by the time I ordered) of a new telly. It turned out the analogue input had dreadful motion blur (and it was in a second room where only analogue input is available). I emailed the customer services about it and after making some settings suggestions (which worked to a certain extent, but still some faces were not keeping up with turning heads!) and checking for firmware upgrade (none), were very happy to arrange a collection at my convenience for a full refund (this is after about two weeks of use). I don't think you can beat that for customer service. On paper the model (Samsung UE22H5000) should have been perfect, but it's good to know that if in practice it doesn't turn out to be JL will happily take it back. I would have gladly exchanged it for another model but alas they don't have anything else that quite fits the bill. There are other occasions I've had unquestioning excellent service from them with regard to electronics and clothes.
Now, can anyone recommend a good 22" or 24" 1080p television with 2 HDMI inputs, good analogue picture and a stand that doesn't reach the whole width of the 22" screen (the stand it'll sit on is about 18" wide)?
All it needs
is more of that watch band hinge and they could sell it as a smart-sleeve

Open source maths packages
It's been a long time since I was actively researching maths, but even then there was (and still is) a fantastically fast number-theory based CLI environment called PARI/GP (sudo apt-get install pari-gp) http://pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/ and a massively comprehensive algebra package called GAP [Groups Algorithms and Programming] (sudo apt-get install gap) http://www.gap-system.org/ . Both still being actively developed.
They didn't have the GUI or comprehensive coverage that Mathematica or Maple had then but they covered their own fields pretty damn well. I daresay there are other packages for other areas of maths.
Having said that, not really very school-pupil friendly unless you're already a programmer.
I guess the problem, in the field of pure maths at least, is that once it is known a solution exists the researcher loses interest in actually finding it, so once there's a CLI, they lose interest in actually building a GUI on top (that's just /bookwork/)! ;)
