And depending who wins in 2 years it will be moth balled
Mein Volks Gott.
VW dealer here is advertising new VWs on finance with $10,000 cash back - to people who need the money.
The ad literally says; "if you need $10,000, whatever you need the money for, come in and buy a new VW and walk away with $10,000" Presumably they need the $10K to get their head examined !
Knew one electronics "cough" engineer "cough" who replaced all the switched PSUs in our labs computers with massive 12V/5V linear supplies - to reduce noise.
are you still using electrons?
I use positrons for all my interconnects - of course you have to reverse the 1s and 0s
3.38 according to http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%28area+Ireland%29%2F%28area+wales%29&dataset=&equal=Submit
ps. how the fsck do you enter a link ?
I think you meant is the nation a Capita subsidiary ?
Only 10,000 passengers were affected enough to get compensation claims - the others don't cout
Their idea of resilient was a perfectly safe manual system which they switched to which worked but at a reduced capacity.
Obviously they could have spent more to reduce the risk of this very rare event - in the same way that we always build 3 identical motorways in parallel so we can switch traffic to a backup in the much more common occurrence of an RTA.
No this is France, if you block something (like a motorway a Channel Tunnel or a port) the Police will turn up and assist you because they are in the same union.
In Britain an 18 year old man could be thrown in prison for having pictures of his 17 year old wife giving birth.
like Greenpeace ?
Would't publishing such a list be a DMCA violation?
Why the joke icon?
I'm sure this will end up as being prior art in some future patent case - unless the patent has already been filed.
"I'm sorry Dave I can't do that - you bought it in region 2 and you are trying to watch it on a region 1 TV in a month with an R in it"
Until they also pass a law putting you in prison for 5years if you don't decrypt it.
I think you will find that the safeguards protecting the police and the security and intelligence agencies have proved very robust
Well they could drag BBC employees off flights and arrest them, like the American's do for anyone running an online gambling site outside the USA
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?
Not sure about that. Would you pay more for a flight on a plane that has made a successful test flight or is just being towed out of the factory?
We got a very good discount for Cluster to fly on the first Ariane V - that didn't work out too well.
The water landing also lets you land a rocket anywhere, you don't have to constrain your launches so that your return will be in the right place, or carry extra fuel to get there.
Eventually they will land back at base once the saving by retrieving them is enough and the customer can be more flexible on launch and payload - at the moment Nasa is their only, and inflexible, customer.
It's easy; kiwis hiv no vwls. Saffas have vowels but only use them in maaaaaaaaaaan
She's an IT worker in Jo'burg.
The South African mining engineers I work with don't have a clue what it's like to be an unemployed teen in Belfast or a crofter in Orkney - why should they ?
So you pay everyone the same benefit ( your tax-free allowance is basically benefits) and you make a huge saving by not having all the admin and economic incentive problems.
What about people who need extra help, do they still get more for disability, do people who need nursing care get it or does it all come out of their 15k year?
It's the same argument with flat tax. If we all paid a flat rate with no allowances, bands and loopholes you would raise the same amount paying 13% as we do now with 20%/40%. Except that assumes the billionaires would pay their 13%, which they wouldn't
Was made redundant after our company was bought by an asset stripper.
After paying 40% tax my dole claim was rejected (after 8 weeks) because I had started work on the 2nd of Jan so I didn't have enough full years. I applied for income support but didn't get it because I owned a house (or rather the bank did) so was asset-rich.
So I voted with my feet - it's nice here on the pacific coast.
I hope all those Russian billionaires you are attracting to live tax free in London make up for all the scientists and engineers you are losing.
32 years ago we 'destroyed' well paid jobs in mining, steel, shipbuilding and have 'created' may more zero-hour part-time minimum wage jobs.
(well if new jobs are "created" by politicians surely old jobs aren't merely "lost")
Depends where in the country you are.
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.
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?
> I've been wasting my time
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?

In the online referendum on Northern Ireland independance the Yes vote = 2, the no vote = 465million
"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.
