Re: Plus ça change...
Indeed, the wonderful Peter Bonfield split ICL into several competing divisions which then spent the next decade or so fighting with each other rather than cooperating to get outside business. In the mean time ICL slid slowly into obscurity. Bonfield of course jumped ship to BT and did the same thing there! Master stroke, give the man a knighthood; oh, they did...

Oracle don't employ programmers in the UK...
Re: basic microeconomics
Or get a loan for the license itself and deduct the interest payments against tax helping to reduce the tax burden to bugger all...
(Mine is the coat with a community chest card in the pocket...)
Problem is, since we (the UK tax payer) own ~80% of this dire Bank, moving to another provider is a bit of a foot and shotgun moment...
Re: Why does there have to be anything left
Stuff can neither be created nor destroyed; all you do is change the form.
Always had a liking for the ferret after the gophor died.
Mine has a ferret in the pockets...

Actually caught most in mid air as the canister parachuted down.
Re: THE POWER CABLE WILL COME OUT REGULARLY
I'm intrigued as to why you need to tilt the screen so much. I've been using iMacs for a number of years and hardly ever tilt the screen. Are you playing pinball a lot?
Re: US Strategy of Negotiation: Our Way or the Highway
What would happen to a country if its government failed to pay its military?
There is a good candidate for dark energy; quantum foam.
Dark matter, as has been pointed out previously, isn't required to explain the rotation of galaxies, so lets drop that old chestnut. So we are left with having to explain why space is lumpy; not sure we need dark matter for that either.
Whats the point of keeping the records if they are never referenced and on admission new data is obtained...
What about NXT
This is also being developed by the NXT boffins:
Re: Ban international companies.
That's how it works now. The point is that the individual legal entities/companies in each country are owned/controlled by the same company/person/legal entity and deal with each other in any way they see fit (well, within the legal regulations of each country).
Re: Does this meen...
You can do both at once:

Re: TV Tax letter
In 1964, a Moroccan-born Israeli double agent named Mordechai Ben Masoud Louk (also known as Josef Dahan) was drugged, bound, and placed in a diplomatic bag at the Egyptian Embassy in Rome, but was rescued by the Italians. The crate that he had been placed in appeared to have been used for a similar purpose before, possibly for an Egyptian military official who had defected to Italy several years before but then disappeared without a trace before reappearing under Egyptian custody and facing trial.

The Baptism thing is part of his cover story...
No it's not just you, we have...
But after you get the list of connected people, you then ask for all their data and voice records...

Re: Still better than here
Encryption, if it was the Chinese government, would only slow things up a bit.
Your one of us, or one of them.
If the USA allowed dual citizenship, like a lot of other countries, then perhaps this sort of circumstance wouldn't come about. Having to renounce either your current citizenship to become a citizen of the USA or to renounce your USA citizenship to become a citizen of another country seems odd and rather restrictive. We don't know why Eduardo wanted to become a citizen of Singapore, but perhaps if he were allowed to keep his USA citizenship he would have.

What about LOHAN?
Modern virtualisation still has a way to go to catch up with the past...
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
I think it's probably named after the 1951 festival of britain structure:

Shouldn't that be 1024 exabytes...
The Moon Has No Oceans
What about the hight of everest above the lowest point on the earths surface as the moon has no oceans? Quick google...
Everest 8848m above sea level
Mariana Trench -10,971m below sea level
This gives a maximum vertical displacement of 19,819m, a significantly greater range than the puny lunar range of 10,786m.
Mind Over Matter
What about the reported physical effects?
Not to mention a posible mechanism
Flame, because, well self evident really.
Now we know why DTrace fell out of OS X
Well, I'd love to register my view but no login boxes on my browser...

There are also a few (18?) GLONASS satellites up there.
