Re: Carbonates are how the Earth deals with excess CO2
Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the concept of open pit? Hint the clue is in the name.

Although they are happy to show huge blank areas that are secret.
Like the undetectable top secret cylindrical tower in the center of London
>You would just put them in the back of the car
I think I saw a terrorist instruction video on extremist ITV which suggested you had to put them in barrels of oil and get very nervous when the gendarmes poke in the back of the van.
Invade Belgium .....
Surely a few years ago it was even MORE likely to happen.
If Apple (allegedly) had deals with other silicon valley computer companies not to hire then the only place a disillusioned Apple insider (a pip?) could go would be outside the industry to someone like Tesla.
Now that the (alleged) deal is (allegedly) off - they can presumably get a job offer from all the other software companies so Telsa has to compete more strongly for hires.
The point is precisely that domains don't limit countries.
Google is saying that they removed it from google.es but continue to display the results in europe from google.com.
If they show Google.com in europe then it is a european site as far as european law is concerned. That it is hosted outside europe doesn't make it immune any more than pirate radio did or broadcasting illegal content from a Russian owned satelite would.
I assume Google is happy to take ad money when people outside the US click on google.com.
Does this extend? Does a British news site have to ensue that viewers in China don't see anything about <...> square? Does bbc.co.uk have to ensue that Clarkson isn't seen by people on Earth?
How unlike the home life of our own dear prime minister
It depends: would that be the tor developed by the US naval research lab to allow free internet access to people under oppressive regimes or the Tor which is 90% child porn according to the same government?
I think there might be a slight flaw in China's plans to collect names.
Top 3 names in the list of worlds most popular surnames:
1 Wang 92,881,000
2 Li 92,074,000
3 Zhang 87,502,000
Unreliable, uncorroborated, untrustworthy would be other terms.
"We have stolen files from KGB hackers and they reveal that Mr Obama is a North Korean agent....."
Remember the "we found a document on the internet that said Iraq had WMD"?
They could just ask nicely, like they did with the cell phone companies.
Or they suggest that you might want to keep friendly with government purchasing depts
Or they suggest you might not want a tax audit
Or they simply turn up with lots of guns and some orange jumpsuits and suggest you comply
Now that we know the courts will grant immunity to anyone who illegally cooperates with warrantless wiretaps - why risk upsetting the government ?
If you are a data center power is your main cost.
For every watt you put into the HW you need 2-3 Watts of AC to get it out again.
You are running Xeons to pull data of a drive and send it to a network port - why exactly ?
Although Acorn had invented the ARM processor by that point and was shipping machines based on it.
I had one, 8Mhz of ARM2 single core goodness - a whole 5MIPs
Captain Renault of Las Vegas Police dept: I'm shocked... shocked to find that gambling is going on in there.
Manager of Ceasers Palace: Your winnings sir.
It was a hotel room - are you going to stop a repairman that claims to have been sent by the hotel to your room?

Unless you live in a very marginal constituency and vote tactically, you have been.
Didn't a leaked GCHQ memo recently say that tattoos were a likely pointer to the sort of 'alternative lifestyle choices' that meant you probably wouldn't be hired?

"Last year, when Apple was searching for a place to house a factory that makes a stronger glass for its gadgets, Mesa pulled out the stops. The city, which was ravaged by the 2007 housing crash, offered tax breaks, built power lines, fast-tracked building permits and got the state to declare a vacant 1.3 million-square-foot facility that Apple was exploring a foreign trade zone. With unemployment high, such are the lengths that towns are willing to go to to lure the world’s most valuable company.
Governor Jan Brewer and the Arizona Commerce Authority estimate that the manufacturing facility will create at least 700 quality jobs in the first year and generate significant capital investment. The project also will produce approximately 1,300 construction and other associated jobs for the people of Arizona.
I wonder how much more they are offering for a remotely operated data center employing a handful of security guards and a few cleaners
If it is just the .Net Compact Framework then there is very little point, I can do that on an Netduino already with 1 core and 256Mb of memory.
If they needed quad core and 1Gb it has to be a decent tablet-esque version with a display, network keyboard etc etc - even if it can't host visual studio 2013.
The point of the RPi was to get back to the BBC micro/Sinclair days when kids (who frequently knew more than the CS teachers) could play with the machines, have machines at home, discover things for themselves, break things and above all LEARN.
Now a combination of factors has led to useless IT lessons with students basically being told to fear the locked down Windows PCs and doing anything outside the lesson plan is at best a fail and worse cyber-terrorism.
Not all the kids will program in assembler or rewrite the kernel, but some will.
>As long as one has the freedom to remove Win 10. Why all the bitchin'?
The raspberryPi was aimed at schools.
It was aimed at fixing the problem that CS in schools is now click on icon in Word to bold a word.
It was aimed at the; it is a offense to touch the school PCs without explicit permission, it is a violation of the schools service contract to do anything on the PCs not aligned with keystage 2 subsection 3 para 4 of the people's central curriculum.
So Microsoft make a few phone calls to their friends in government to "develop enhanced curriculum support" - and all those Pi in schools are suddenly limited to running Internet Explorer to access Office365 to click on an icon in Word ....
Is Bosch a charity-charity or an IKEA-charity ?

Are we still allowed to send a gunboat ?
Office and Server - same place they always got money.
The only thing that has changed is that somebody has realised that if everyone starts running this cloudy free stuff then sales of Office and Server sales might be hit so we have to do something to compete / dump freebies to protect our monopoly on the desktop.
>Perhaps users of XP just kept on working.
Santa uses XP ?
> Few charities have an overhead anywhere near as low.
Few charities have armed forces they can send after people who don't "contribute"
If the strong EMH were true there would be no need for insider trading laws or quite periods or restrictions on spying on competitors - since it would all be in the price.
We are fortunate in Canada to be limited to two monopoly providers with the government careful to keep out competition.
This is necessary to protect and promote Canadian culture.
With all these choices of good quality low cost services isn't British culture doomed?
The fip side of no-byod is that if you want me to receive company email or phone calls when I'm not in the office then you issue me with a company device.
If you expect me to carry a company device then I am on-call, and I am getting paid for on-call time or I'm getting time off in lieu
The rule won't apply to the bosses shiny malware infested personal laptop - because to claim back the VAT it was officially company property (like his car and children).
Sorry - I'm an optics engineer. Printing a pattern with details 1/40 the wavelength of visible and repeating the pattern accurately over an 18" wafer for 100 layers is definitely on the tricky side.
14nm is around 75 Silicon atoms across.
We can build machines in massive quantities for a few $ each that have parts small enough that we need to worry about how many atoms.
We did this about half a century after inventing the field of semiconductors.
Isn't that just fscking amazing ?
and we use it to watch cat videos .....
So this replaces "fluoridation of water is a commie plot" with "net neutrality is a united nations plot" ?
I just upgraded to a Moto G - I thought it was a flagship !
7, Thrown in a skip because the person still has a bunch of mail to deal with and it's nearly tea time.
No need, they will be shared with various commercial partners in lots of countries with no data protection laws - so no need to lose copies at all.
I think they did aswell.
But it does represent an extension of the FCC's scope. If they don't simply regulate the spectrum but also the data and the business model do they get to decide matters of traffic shaping, DNS redirects, VPN blocking and which content is delivered?
That was their defense - they didn't do anything "RF naughty" they sent perfectly legal packets to everyone's phone.
That's easy, the tricky bit is if you want to sell in China or the USA.
So which is safer, a single common backdoor that you give the key to dozens of different agencies in a hundred different countries - or a 1000 separate backdoors each allegedly known only to that agency.
Oh come on it's IBM - they would never had any profitable relations with slightly shady governments.

You have been selected to get a Windows CE phone instead of an iPhone because we need all phones to be equal.
>So, we all do half a job, or a quarter of a job and still have a high standard of living but (hopefully) a higher quality of life
Yes, that's why programmers today don't work that awful 9-5 lifestyle of our parent's and grandparent's generation.
