Life in a Norwegian prison doesn't seem to look like punishment to me! :(
at a time when "the bright, barred spiral galaxy NGC 3259 was just forming stars in dark bands of dust and gas"
at a time when lots of things more relevant were happening e.g. New Zealand separating from Antarctica
Right, that's my next chat-up line sorted.
Re: Certainly the first of its kind.
But an investigation none the less.
How long are they supposed to last?
The designers reckoned that after a few years, they might develop their own emotional responses: hate, love, fear, anger, envy.

Re: Fast charging
Government tax on 'car electricity' soon to follow...
Isn't that just a shortcut to "turning over to the other side to see what's on"?
I don't think white wee-wee will be suitable for a pre-watershed audience!
Re: Dr. Who is a lot of shite, and everyone knows it
Why doesn't everybody calm down and just enjoy it, or watch something else?!
I think Reg headlines need their own forum...
I thought this mission was unmanned...
Re: The shape of ICBMs
I just use a free redirector at mail.com, and can switch main provider whenever I like, that way I get to keep the same mail address.
Re: arrival at 06.31 BST on 6 August (22.31 PDT 5 August).
They've only gone and closed all the canali in the region so I can't get to the shops or anything!
Fancy? American Car? Er...
France, and Greece and Italy were particularly poor
"rewrite them at regular intervals"
That involves an archive refreshment plan, which is not an automatic process, and so is flawed.
Boot: I have some CD-Rs from 10 years ago that are now unreadable, I only needed to access them now and had to send them to our IT department for some fiddling.
You know what, photos just go into an archive, and then get forgotten after you die. Even if they were all on facebook, it might be interesting to look at great grandparents life story online but hasn't everyone got their current lives to get on with? In the past, a fuzzy bacl and white photo and stories passed down the generations held much more inside the imagination. Let digital media rest in peace.
Re: Hand goes up
Actually my 3GS is just fine! And I have a 4S as a work phone and hardly use its newer features.
Blimey, they're queuing up.
Re: Ye glods and little blue fishes
Sounds like someone's putting laws in place so their buddies can make money from litigation.
You are right about the middle of the Sahara desert: nothing to see except lizards.
I for one welcomed the day I 'deactivated' my account. I felt quite liberated.
Re: Hey, it's international cuisine alright
Un Grand Fils?
So where does the pub come in? I wanted reassurance that our Clovis and earlier ancestors got pissed, made fools of themselves and woke up with heaaches.

You've 'gort' to be kidding!
I think we should at least try where we have control. Comparing one spend to the detriment of the potential of another is not useful, this programme is about saving lives after car accidents, not whether the third world are in poverty and dying of malaria, that is a different spend that has its own programme.
"given that its my life that will be lost"
Or passengers, pedestrians, other third parties, etc.
People often make risk assessment on how much it costs rather than the benefit of the risk mitigation itself.
Anyway the cost is borne by the initial consumer, a ubiquitous system such as this will not hold any particular value to second-users.
"really worth spending that much money to save 2,500 lives"
Ask friends and family of the deceased.
€100 on the price of a car for this is well worth it!
Re: 6 Years for a naked Scarlett Johansson?
I don't think she'll be in there with you!
Really fabulous to see a different approach, a different culture aiming to achieve the same goals as ever. I think they'll go far!
Actually First Direct are very good for speaking to them on the phone, I usually get through very quickly when I ever need to (which is rare).
So actually it turns out that Stonehenge was the UK's first gyratory system!

Never understood why the call it space 'flight'. In my mind you don't 'fly' anywhere, 'to fly' is a verb, something you do.
In space you're at the mercy of trajectory so for most of the time you're not doing anything at all, just waiting ages for things to get nearer so you can press a button that fires a rocket for a short period of time so you can then start waiting again.
Maybe they should call it spacewait?
I combe in peace, shoot to kill!
Re: 50-Year lifetime
I think it means will the media still be viable rather than the data that are on it. Cryptographers will always find a way of reading it if the data itself are still intact.
Work to live. Not the other way around.
