Re: New name needed.
I assume the origional source of 'Trolling' came from the art of long-line fishing. Not disfigured sub-bridge dwellers of popular folklore.
Best make the space domes movable!
Yes! Just like our habitations here on Earth!
That's nothing. Outgassing. Don't worry about it.
Re: Why are we limited to just two?
Can't speak for MS, but my *nix box allows an arbitrary long list. 18.104.22.168 is my fallback if both my ISP's DNSes trip over.
Starting over from scratch.
Re: Android named apps
Lucas was fairly forgiving about these things. But now it is Disney you have to watch out for!
Re: Bloke turns up for an interview...
Well if they aren't advertising to blokes too, they are missing half their market!
Re: I'll tell you one thing
But spunking three orders of magnitude more money on new ways to kill people is all okey dokey.
Unfortunately 'think of the children' doesn't cover their education.
Nah, I like a /leeeeeetle/ bit of formatting in my text.
Not so much that it inteferes with reflowing the text to whatever screen/resolution I choose to use, though!
"Just reading page 129 of the EULA again."
Good thing I only read things made available in HTML.
In the end, if these people really cared about saving lives,

Not publicly-funded James-bond-themed LARPing
It put a smile on my (flu-ravaged, today) face.
Re: I saw a (on the surface) farily well-branded 'Woolworths Customer Survey' phish.
Not far wrong!
I saw a (on the surface) farily well-branded 'Woolworths Customer Survey' phish.
Though I am pretty sure Woolworths don't operate out of eastern europe.
And I get the same emails on my work email (named) and other work email (department section). Nether of which have any reason to talk to a supermarket, bank, etc.
On the other hand, I spent weeks binning the official internal bulliten because HR decided to issue it from a 'cloud' service rather than via the internal domain (morons!).
Of course he has. They are his inspirations.
Why do they have to be female agents? I am pretty confident the majority of males in the world find this behaviour reprehensible too!
Could be worse!
Could have been William Blake!
Qt a 'Programming Language'?

Re: Geological Sources
Not a geologist myself, but I am thinking are the geological sources of methane on Earth a result of life getting caught beneath changing geology???
Obvious industry shill is obvious!
That these 'research groups' think no one will notice the glaring gaps in their methodology is rather insulting to humanity.
Workspaces in Linux predate both Gnome and Ubuntu by a good many years!
The previous government was, of course, largely indistinguishable from the present one. Or the one before. But I fail to see how that makes it alright.
I have yet...
...to find something on GMaps that isn't at least 50m from its true location (3 blocks away is more typical).
Well, there is always MineTest
Re: Boring is good.
"Local Supercluster" was already taken by the supercluster just north of Coma (off the map shown).
Hope they were insured!
Well, for broken or otherwise 'unfit' goods, one presumes the game would have to be provably sufficiently unplayable or varient to advertised expectations to pass the definition (which numerous games have proved to be over the decades).
For un-wanted items, if the packaging (DRM) is unopened (never-activated) that should be fair evidence of not having played it.
I don't think Valve (or any other software supplier) is being asked anything unreasonable here.
Re: Stick a Fork in it!
Konqueror!!! (see icon)
I wasn't aware you could turn them off. Now I have.
Interested to see if
IceWeasel* strips this functionality or lets it stand.
*Debian's trademark-stripped-for-licencing-reasons version of FF.
A real-world application of holographic memory!

Re: Red Flag...
Maybe Red Flag BSD this time?
He is the best place possible ... for learning a whole raft of new skills.
Results only applicable for a perfect sphere moving through a vaccuum!
Which bank^H^H^H^H telco?
Every bloody bank^H^H^H^H telco!
Just don't try to get it past the TSA!
Re: Bugger this... I'm walking.
That won't protect you from other's cars (which now can't see you at all since you don't have V2V built into your body... yet!)
The sharks want their LASERs!
Re: "the shark-bite problem is specific to optical fibre cables rather than their retired copper predecessors"
Re: We will all be driving $25.00 cars that get 1,000 miles to the gallon
That crash at least once a day!
Re: How much?
