>> 'It just gets worser and worser"
I think the actual quote is from Eeyore.
Re: "Serious Crime Bill"?
It's not Python. That's from the Frost Report, performed by John Cleese and the Ronnies, Baker and Corbett. Written by Marty Feldman and John Law.
I'd like to nominate Theresa May and Hariett Harmon.
Trees still standing?
Looking at the first picture, the trees in the vicinity of the crater appear to be remarkably undamaged.
Surely all that proves is that the phone was in a specific location at a specific time. It proves nothing about whose possesion it was in?
Isn't there a second factor that needs to be considered here. The plasma can be ejected in any direction from the surface of the sun. It's only going to be a problem if we're in the way.
Oh no ....
That will be the rest of my week's productivity down the swannee then ...
Yeah, I haven't heard 'You better move on' for ages either.
Re: You jest!
>> but if the BBC is the highlight of Europe then things must be grim.
Oh, believe me, it is. The BBC is a shining beacon amidst the complete and utter dross that makes up the national TV service in most of the European countries I've had the misfortune to watch in.
Am I the only one ,,,,
with the song of 'Nellie the gomphothere" running around my brain right now?
Re: The US hates illegal aliens
Bloody Hell - you can tell it's Friday, can't you.
If that is your entire rig, it must renders John Cages 4' 33" perfectly.
Not another latest and greatest
You can replace my 12 yr old Denon seperates when you can prize them out of my cold, dead fingers.
>The Maldives government would have had to consent to this action, would they not? I wonder what incentives the US offered to secure their cooperation.
"Nice island you've got here. Shame if anything happened to it" while someone whistles the the Grenadan national anthem softly in the background.?
If you built them around the edges, instead of in the middle, I'm sure RoW would be only to willing to lend a helping hand . Hell, I'd even chuck in a few quid myself.
Re: Cute, but ...
I still haven't managed to get "inside" the building yet :(
Re: I want an app that says
Nice try - but I think you'll find that prior art shows that it's actually "Ying Tong, Ying Tong, Ying Tong, Ying Tong, Ying Tong Iddley Po"
Re: We're finally there...
Unfortunately, I very much doubt it.
Re: Yank my chain
Be fair - the Americans win the World Series: every year
Re: Apocryphal ?? There but for the grace ..
Did you read the article properly?
If you want to watch content from Google, Netflix et al then you need EME. If you do, you have to download the module seperately it's not going to be built in. If you don't want the 'official' version, you are free to download the module from third party developers if/when they are available. If you disagree with DRM then you don't have to download the plugin.
I cannot see what else Mozilla could do. At least it's your choice whether to accept this or not. For the time being DRM is here to stay. Whether that is a good idea is a seperate topic of discussion
Re: That's pretty cool
Novell had a similair system for their Netware installs, except they preffered the 48th out of 50

Not sure that I'd want to be within 15 to 25 feet of several hundred kilos of pissed off Yogi.
Re: Son of Voyager
I doubt it's even noughties technology - you don't send bleeding edge technology on space missions, you send well understood, proven technology - it's probably using the space industry equivalent of Windows 98 tech.
" but it has become clear to me that the present situation has become a distraction from the vital work this Government is doing to turn our country around."
So she's resigning for altruistic reasons rather than the fact she got caught fiddling 45K worth of expenses?
Re: You have got it all wrong....
Why would you even have wheels fitted to your bog? Inquiring minds and all that .....

Re: Who are these people who would willingly pay more?
If the BBC moved to a subscription based service and expanded the scope to include the ex-pat community, they'd probably be awash with subscribers and no-one would need to pay x2 or x3
Someone just has to send a 'Kilroy was here'
All pigs can fly. It's just a matter of calculating the trajectory and then applying sufficient impetus.
Re: Well done China.
I can't tell the difference between one little white dot or the other little white dots, other than two of them have arrows pointing at them. Unless someone can come up with a convincing theory as to how they got there on the lunar surface, I too call hoax.
Re: So only about 140x further than human kind has *ever* traveled
So that would be the Arcs A,B & C then?
Re: Totally useless "technology" "invention".
> A ten-story rocket is definitely a bit bigger and a lot less stable when balanced on the blunt end.
Ok - I'm curious - why doesn't it just topple over?
Seems a small price to pay ....

>It always amuses me when you get people in their 40's/50's who get made redundant and are then shocked >to find they can't get another job on the same salary, because after all their "years of experience" is all that >should matter. Yes you have years of experience - of knowing very little.
I hope that you still find it equally whimsical when, god forbid, it happens to you.
Ironically, in modern greek as spoken here in Cyprus, gamma at the start of a word is pronounced 'y'
"No, it's statistics with a very high margin of error" - brilliant! I *will* be using that line at some point in th enear future.
Actually, Berwick is the end of England, not the start of Scotland

>> I used to love adding a "cheat", such as infinite lives/ammo to character 1 or removing collision on a certain wall, for when I played multiplayer with a friend
I had fun with "Snake" - programmed the shift key to reverse the left & right keys of my opponent. Provided much hilarity until he realised what I had done.
Re: "The Pi Shop"
And here was me thinking old Chris was from Genoa.
Re: @ Michael Luke
Nah - we'll be OK. Most yanks have never heard of the UK, and of those that have, most of them think it's place near London.
Re: What happened to the 'Most Read/Commented' list of articles on the front page?
Yes - +1 to bring it back. I too used it as a major navigational tool - particularly the most commented.
What is it that our gubberment keep saying ....? Oh yes, 'If you've nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear' .
>On another note, when I was young I used to have some lego-like construction bricks which belonged to my >dad, which were made of a type of rubber, rather than hard plastic. Anyone else have anything similar?
I remember those - one of my friends had a set. Buggered if I can remember what it was called though.
