But what about the beta gate?

I always thought geology was specifically to do with the earth (because of the "geo" bit). As in geocentric, apogee, perigee ...
"Consider the distances involved. NASA threw a probe over three billion miles through the Solar System, using the gravity from our largest planet to get it up to speed, and has now slung it past Pluto so close that it's less than an Earth-width distance away. Its relatively puny thrusters have given fine tuning abilities, but the mechanics of such a feat are immensely complex."
Yeah yeah, we get it. It /is/ rocket science.
Also... "Pluto could harbor extraterrestrial surprises". Whereas a terrestrial surprise, well.. that really /would/ be a surprise!

Hmm, my watch seems to be running about 20 years slow.

MacGyver on Mars...
actually I remember the Robinson Crusoe on Mars from seeing it at a very young age and I'd watch any space film. I remember it being quite good. But it wasn't anywhere near as good as MacGyver.

Clearly that is talking about his own shortcomings, which the article finishes by saying he said.
Although the logical conclusion ought to be to keep Tim Hunt out of the lab, not women.

Re: Is this really going to affect many people?
Well I have a Pebble Steel and /would/ swap it for an Apple Watch. But only so I could sell that on eBay and buy pebble steels for the whole family! It is /incredibly/ useful, and I easily get 8 days use out of it between charges.

Re: 802.11 ay?
As farmers are forced to diversify and have cellular towers erected in their fields, I expect it won't be long before the standard signal is based on 802.11eieio.
And on that farm he had some antennae, eieio.

Why don't they just paint a load of planes on the tarmac? Perfect camo!
Call that an answer??? We expect you to get back up there with your LG G4 and take another snap!
Re: I agree
Soon the camo will be slightly red at the front and slightly blue at the back to compensate for the blue/red-shift when accelerating ;)
Re: The only bit I liked
On a trip to Peru I got a chance to try a small portion of guinea pig (not a whole one -- I got a back leg I think). It was cooked the boiled and fried-to-crisp way and it tasted not unlike duck. I would certainly eat it again. Much to my neighbours' children's worry.

> With nuclear propulsion on one side and a moon base on the other?
For the benefit of the younger readers, this is clearly madness because the attempts to do this 16 years ago completely missed Mars (see the documentaries on youtube).
Clearly what's really happened here is that there is a secret table of 512 different randomly generated 16 character passwords that every member of staff has memorised. The sticker on the monitor simply tells the operative that they should use Password number 1.
Just like when I memorised the colour code sheet for JetSet Willy.
I'm joking, I didn't.
Can I install this alongside Plants vs Zombies without breaking the latter?
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!

I can't wait for this year's general election coverage. I am CERTAIN that one of the presenters will say

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.
Re: One for the budget fetishists
Indeed. I love Arthur C Clarke's point that
"the reason the dinosaurs died out is because they didn't have an effective space programme."

> All you actually need to do is stick a couple of metal brushes on the bottom of the car, and turn all pedestrian free roads into giant Scalextric tracks.
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.
