Wow, I'm impressed
Seriously. 50+ posts and not a single aspertame rant.
+1 to El Reg commenters.
We actually had an MP (Former MP?) here in NZ 'musing out loud' about Coca Cola putting something in the drinks to make them so addictive.
It was Sue Kedgley, a well known campaigner against the food and beverage industry, but still.
The missing reference.
A page and a half of comments from literate tech-types and no one's commented on the obvious fact that Sita wants to orchestrate a Rendezvous with Rama.
Probably in his Garden, wherein he shall be Revealed.
Apologies to Sir Arthur, and to Gentry Lee.
As opposed to a 'scan to evernote' app?
Like the recent moleskin pad/app combination, for instance.
Or, for that matter those cheap pads that copy as JPG straight to your SD card.
You might very well do that,
But I couldn't possibly comment.
Re: Well there goes Tattooine
Not if the two suns form in place, with the rest of the system forming around them.
The way I read it, it was the inward migration of the large mass object that swept the system.
Similarly, any bodies outside the sweep of the long elipse as the Jovian migrated inward shouldn't have been too badly affected. Too cold, in all likelihood, to be habitable, of course.
Someone's not updating their stock database in the SQL, are they?
That sounds like the time (ahem, theoretical possibility) someone forgot to add the WHERE clause to an UPDATE statement.
I wonder if any sufficiently sensitive cameras recorded the trail well enough to get a measure of what was ablating from the rock.
Or is it just the Ni2/O2 mix of the plasma shield?
Proper Uses for PDFs
And you seem to be using PDFs properly. That kind of "human-readable" use is what they're good for. I used to use them similarly in the digital printing industry.
What they're _Not_ useful for is transmitting information that you might like to be _machine_ readable, like maps that you might want to import into a GIS or mash-up with other data.
@Shane - the way it's written, the ISPs, like TC, sit on their hands until they get an official complaint from the rights holder (MPAA or studio) about a specific IP address (and, presumably, time)
They assume the Rights Holder is correct in all particulars and pass on the complaint to the user.
Unless Torvalds starts being a dick, you're not going to attract a complaint for Lunix distros or TED videos.
I'm pretty sure that there an out along the lines of there being a 'reasonable expectation that this is the legitimate price'.
'Free' product, especially major purchases, wouldn't meet that expectation, particularly if the site weren't making some big song and dance about the 'bargins'.
Yay for mod_rewrite
First Three Books only.
Dune was Dune,
"Children of Dune" was Dune Messiah in part 1 and Children of Dune in 2 & 3, with an unaccounted for ageing of the children for added hawtness.
God Emperor wasn't touched. Thankfully.
Re: First rule of a cyberpunk
You're quoting from the original 'Johnny Mnemonic' the inspiration for a movie with the same name starring a pre-matrix Keanu Reeves.
"If they think you're crude, go technical; If they think you're technical, go crude. I'm a very technical boy."
And other stuff gets swept under the carpet.
One imagines a sort of conveyor in the floor and walls that takes what one administration sweeps under the rug, and positions it ready to fall out of the woodwork under the next administration.
It's already being tracked.
"It's what we do."
::EvilGoogle Logo::/::SaintGoogle Logo: YMMV.
Pete makes films till the money runs out.
(or even after, according to rumours about Kong)
Bad Taste, Braindead (in the rebel colonies, 'Dead Alive'), Meet the Feebles, The Frighteners were Pete's Pre-Rings masterpieces.
'The One with the Sheep'? I think you are thinking of 2007's "Black Sheep"? That was Jonathan King, not Pete. On the other hand, there was a big Weta involvement, so, close enough, I suppose.
And stop their war of nerves with Earth?
Are you the man who can stop them, a man whom fate has made indestructible?
Flames because they're Scarlet. And Black, of course.
