Well wordpress seems to be used on ~1/4 of all websites (http://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/content_management/all) and it relies on cookies but doesn't explicitly ask; perhaps wordpress need to change...

Re: Great news
We already eat seaweed.
Re: The Purpose of Government.
Exactly why couldn't tax collection be privatized? The BEEB seems to manage to collect it's own tax (although it does moan aboutthe cost...)
Re: I just dont get it !!!
I've had one of these for years (http://www.theowl.com/index.php/products/energy-moni/). Shows me with good enough accuracy what I'm using; doesn't really change behaviour much though so I guess the basic premise for 'smart' meters is at best unproven.
Re: Good idea
Does anybody here upgrade their washing machines, toasters, ovens, HiFi amps, AV equipment, etc. ?
Re: Take GCHQ's crown?
No it's treason.
There's also that ornate place by the Thames next to the pointy clock tower that's jam packed with extremists...
Re: Innuendo... Al-Qaeda, what!?
It might make your life interesting if you subsequently go on holiday with your family to Florida.
Unfortunately the UK gave up it's ability to make our own independent nuclear weapons a while ago. All we have are Trident, and they are far from independent; their replacements even more so.
Re: Those Bell inequalities...
Midnight at the Well of Souls
Re: ...already an NHS unique number
The same is true of NINO's there not unique either.
Re: In the news over the weekend...
If you want to know how much juice you using then use something like this:
Now what's advantage to me do smart meters have..
Re: Where to put it?
Diego Garcia, has a big long runway, close to the equator and is home to just a few USA'ers squatting and not paying any rent.
Re: It's not just tax...
Well, public support for the IRA casts a long shadow without even going anywhere near the resent armed trips the USA government has made to spread peace and democracy abroad.
Re: Return to land
They also had/have rather a lot of aircraft carriers from which to mount the whole operation.
Re: I'm sure that any of these companies could do far better if they just doubled their prices
All you'll get is a map of population density not true geographical coverage...
Re: Sun-Synchronous Orbit
Not if your the NRO.
How dare you say that this is deliberately obfuscated...
As the Universe is expanding there is just more space/time every instant. No direction so time going sidewise would be fine.
What about upload?
The internet is not just about streaming films and watching cat videos. Oh, bugger...
Don't Buy Stuff
If advertising didn't bring in the punters then it would stop. Vote with your closed wallet...
Looks like my ksp mun rocket...

"I’ve never seen socks & sandals in the office"
You never worked in ICL then :)
Re: "Always leave them wanting more"
If the "obvious flaw" is that the replicants have a limited lifespan then this isn't so much of a problem. It is left unsaid in the film (both versions) whether or not Rachael had a shorter than normal lifespan and she certainly didn't seem to be burning oh so bright. If Decker is a replicant (the most likely conclusion, as if he wasn't, he would have gone off world like everyone else who could) then it seems he also didn't have the short but bright life.
Re: Government regulation usually ends up with overreach
"Will the definition only include people who want to bomb somewhere? "
Isn't that overwhelmingly governments?
Re: Probably fake
Well from hours of mun missions in KSP, if you get that view then your way off the orbital ecliptic and in for some serious fun on the way back. So I guess it's a mash up.
Re: Err wifi only?
Cheaper to manufacture without an Ethernet port.
I agree with you though but this is just Capitalism driving functionality and usability out of commoditised products in the pursuit of lower production costs. Race to the bottom, depressing but as long as people use price as the major buying decision factor, inevitable.
p.s. I recently bought the most expensive Roku box just to get the Ethernet port, not sure if that makes me bloody minded or stupid...
Re: Backup ... do you mean Recovery products?
Absolutely, the main component to consider is always the restore. Incremental backup's are fine and dandy, but just how long is it going to take to restore the whole caboodle? OK, so you've restored the data/system/service, what does the business need to do now? Oh, and how does this restored service play nicely and not screw up all the services that haven't just time warped into the past? These and many other potential areas for Mr Cockup all become very very important for a business that actually has to use a backup for real.
Re: I find this report...
ICBM's, well some do...
This ground track might be of interest, as might the book.
Re: Antactica is melting too
Citizens Against Government Waste?
Beats Me Why I Should
care about a service I can't use...
There are no stars in the background! Just another government fake to justify syphoning money from ESA into their private bank accounts.
Send one up on a X-37B and fine out if it works...
Re: Doom for US tech companies@ jnemesh
NSA and GCHQ are not really the point here; the main arguments being presented are about the extension of US laws to all nations by use of services and servers either based in the USA or provided by companies who are either domiciled in the USA or are controlled by such. What GCHQ does by spying on USA citizens and then allowing our country cousins access to the information would be illegal as far as the USA courts are concerned but hey, it doesn't happen.
These a fair amount of data here:
Reminds me of an Edward De Bono lateral thought problem. My first stab would be a plug of ice forced up through the soil; possibly by gas pressure.
p.s. If you look at the the final video you can see a number of small circular lakes as the helicopter comes to land which could be holes like this one but eroded and filled with water over a period of time.
Re: On Street Parking
What about reconverting the downstairs bedroom back into a garage?
Re: Jupiter 2
Me thinks more like 2010 Odyssey Two aero breaking
Unfortunately, sort of what I was thinking; bugger...
Or just move to higher ground.
Re: Firewall for Outbound traffic
Samsung smart TV's 'phone' home at ~1:00am everyday, they switch on for that purpose.
Re: Probably the death knell of the "industry"
API's are not just lists they also have defined behaviours some expected and some unexpected!
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...
Re: Some IT Co.'s based in Ireland.
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...
