Re: Must ask
Just strike a match to cover the smell...
What is this TOR you speak of. Oh, wait, I can find out for myself, just have to click on one of the several TOR ads being served up to me here on this page.
And no I can't Adblock/NoScript. I'm at work, so that means I'm using IE6.
Re: On course for UK - Oz in 30 minutes
A quick look at the Apollo 11 launch profile shows it hit 2 km/s (~Mach 6) at about 2 minutes post-launch. So no pancake.
Shades of Monty Python
Anyone else immediately think of the King of Swamp Castle?
"...So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up."
Includes free gift
For sale, one bespoke USB cable. Bidding starts at $3000. Winning bidder also receives one set of Google Glass as a gift, absolutely free of charge.
A handgun is the perfect tool in this case, just make sure you use hollow point to minimize overpenetration. I guarantee a single round to center mass of the operator will bring down the drone.
IIRC it was neutrino-like particles that were used to visually reconstruct a view of any event anywhere. Originally the inventor thought it would allow researchers to peer back to any moment in time, but it turned out that signal-to-noise issues limited the time range to a few days. You could specify any viewing location, however.
Keeping the subject in frame must have been tricky, given all the wobbling and weaving our little dreidel called Earth does as it hurtles across time and space.
Dave 126 / three small bushes
Better first ask Mr E.V. Lambert of Homeleigh, The Burrows, Oswestry about how well that worked out for him.
Re: Aircraft + fire just about the worst
Spacecraft + fire the worst, then?

Quick fact-check at Linux.org:
"What is Linux? Linux is an operating system..."
Re: TEN years ago?
Rain Man won Best Picture in 1988, Dances with Wolves in 1990, Braveheart a few years later. So yeah, twenty to twenty-five years is about right.

Are also: Sandy Island.
Re: Coat icon
Bloody hell, here I was thinking my use of "Get's Coat" was verging on shouty re:intentional sarcasm. Almost went with "Love It/Thumbs Up", but that REALLY would have gone over the downvoters' heads. Guess I'll have to settle for "Joke Alert" or "Troll" next time?
Re: Wants A and B
Might I recommend Windows 8?
Re: Which came first?
According to Apple-history.com, USB came first (iMac Aug/98 for USB vs. Power Mac G3 Jan/99 for Firewire).
Re: MAUD / Tube Alloys
Thanks for that. Never knew the story of how we ended up with a reactor at Chalk River producing a large chunk of the world supply of medical isotopes.
If by a "barrel" they mean ~120 litre barrel, then $18M is probably close to bulk price. Buying a 500 mL bottle straight from friends that make the stuff costs me $10.
Once you cut it with Aunt Jemima and sell it on the street...
Re: Helicopters are complex..
Because the Pelicano is to an RC helicopter as the Blackhawk is to a Pelicano or two.
Intrepid Magnum 44 RC: 6 kg
Pelicano: ~120 kg (max takeoff wt 200kg less 52 l fuel and 30kg payload)
Blackhawk: 4800 kg
Oh, and apparently Indra doesn't so much make the Pelicano as modify a CybAero APID 60. Which is an unmanned helicopter capable of, you guessed it, autonomous takeoff and landing. Keep sucking at that teat, AC.
Re: Working as intended?
My response to the horribleness of iTunes on Windows: never buy another Apple product. My (under warranty) classic iPod died a slow horrible death from the constant onslaught of errors during syncing. Soon followed to the grave by the no-longer-under-warranty replacement.
Bought a Sansa Clip+ and never looked back.
Cyanoacrylate /= epoxy
Cyanoacrylates do not contain epoxide groups, and are therefore most definitely NOT epoxies.
BSN has an Intel roadmap slide showing Ivy Bridge-E i7-4900 series for LGA 2011 socket launching Q3'13. Includes PCIe 3.0 support.
FYI, the i7-3960X launched Q4'11 (http://ark.intel.com/products/63696). The current launch is in fact for the i7-3970X, specs are 3.5 GHz with "max turbo" 4.0 GHz and an increase in TDP to 150W (from the i7-3960X TDP of 130W).
Before you flame "haven't you seen the Send Corrections link at the bottom of the article" yes I have and yes I did and no the Reg hasn't issued a correction.
Not sure how one uses a feed bag to gain the high ground. Care to elaborate?
The difference between Pinochet and Assange is...
One was supported by the CIA and had thousands of Chilean civilians killed and tens of thousands imprisoned and tortured, the other faces questioning in Sweden over a broken condom or two (and possibly also secretly in the USA for "espionage" aka "embarrassing us on the international stage").
So yes, the two cases are not really comparable.
Re: Forward planning
So there's this thing called the Olympics on right now. If you watch closely, some of the athletes can be seen rehearsing their, say, dive routines while waiting on deck to compete. This does not preclude the possibility that the athlete has previously done some small amount of preparation for the event.
Re: 1/.2 the price
Why would you want to pay 5 times as much?
Re: Who Cares?
Re: Hagan "isn't a crime outside the US". My understanding is that it is far from clear whether or not what Assange allegedly did is even a crime inside the US. The prosecution is going to great pains to try and paint a picture of Assange directing the alleged actions of Bradley rather than passively receiving information which he then published. First Amendment blah blah blah and all that.
Re: Proper Units
What is this "miles" or "km" you speak of? Clearly what we have here is a pass distance of 262 double-decker bus lengths.
I remember standing in line behind a couple of merkins here in Canada a couple of years ago. They were arguing with the cashier about the exchange rate, in utter disbelief that their greenback was worth substantially less than a loonie.
They don't argue about it anymore.
"Since 1971, the USPS has been a self-supporting government agency that covers its operating
costs with revenues generated through the sales of postage and related products and services."
The only subsidy the USPS gets is $100 million/yr to offset costs associated with mandated mail-outs to overseas voters and the blind. Recent losses are largely due to the PAEA which requires the USPS to prefund retiree health benefits.
Knowingly remitting an incorrect invoice is fraud. "We knew the invoicing was incorrect but couldn't be bothered to fix it even after we were told to a couple of years ago" isn't likely to hold up that well in court as a defense.
Re: Played with it yesterday
MS has forced users of the Xbox360 to use this Metro interface for a while now. It doesn't even work that well on a console. Force it on the deskop and you have the OS equivalent of a bad console-to-PC game port of a bad console game.
Oh not, how do I find Bodog now?
Quick Google.com search yields:
Xenon lies above iron in the Periodic Table, so production comes from stars going boom or from the radioactive decay of heavier elements also produced in said explosions. We collect it by fractional distillation of our atmosphere.
Costs on par with beer, by volume (as a gas). And is an intoxicant!
5 Million Years!!!???
WE'RE ALL GOING TO BURN TO A CRISP IN 5 MILLION YEARS?!?!?
Oh, wait. Five billion years. Never mind, then.
Dynamic v static
Large organizations like RIAA et al. are typically assigned large blocks of address all within a particular range. Individual users are more likely to have dynamic addresses.
Info may be wrong for any one individual, but still strongly points to some misdoings within the RIAA.
The height and density of the upper atmosphere is dynamic. The Duff Mars Probe (DMP) has solar panel "wings" and is not under power. So drag on the Duff Mars Probe is rather dynamic.
I don't think 3.5 MHz is quite going to cut it.
Rock-solid, durable motherboards for sure. Prompted me to buy an Asus laptop (M50sv), which turns out to have a rubbish cooling system for the graphic chip. Put it under any significant graphics load and the GPU temp climbs to near-boiling followed by either crippling underclocking or a hard crash. Turns out the fan only cycles up if the CPU is warm, regardless of the heat load of the GPU.
So I'm one with mixed feelings regarding Asus kit.
