In contrast I go outside and it seems crawling with idiots - when I go inside many of them dissapear
So the moon landings weren't shot in a studio - they were all done with CGI.
Pretty impressive for the 1960s ;-)
Q. How many senior ophthalmic surgeons have had this procedure?
Q. How many even wear contact lenses ?
It's also useless for most "zero gravity" research anyway because its manned. So full of breathing, footsteps, pumps, vibration etc
Except I have big problems finding anything other than "k12 outreach" science from the ISS
"conducted experiments into the behaviour of soap bubbles in gravity"
Nice to know that the ISS continues to be at the forefront of advanced astrophysical research.
Cable ties and duct tape
So you can't get a $600 iPhone for free on a 3year contract, unlock it and immediately cancel the contract and sell the phone on ebay?
Damn - I had a whole business model based on that.
The BBC iPlayer will support offline listening to radio - some time in summer 2015.
Perhaps all BBC employees have continuous unlimited data 3g streaming to listen on the site when they are commuting.
To be fair, his sports shots were crap
All the immigration desks at Heathrow T5 were running XP when I went through last month
So the number of XP machines being used to browse whatever sites are signed up to their ads is down compared to Win8.
The number of XP machines being used for real work inside corporate firewalls and not browsing ad-packed websites is .....
In other news Halfords announce that the worlds most popular car is a 10year old Fiesta with fake XR3i badges and dummy turbo exhausts.
That unfortunately is the problem with ITER.
Imagine a consortium of all the Eu, Russia, USA, Japan, Korea, China trying to build something insanely complex, but instead of contributing money they all chip in the bits that they want to build - if there is any part that nobody wants to build it doesn't get built.
And almost all the companies building the parts in those countries are defence linked so don't even trust themselves never mind the other partners.
Then you site it in France so French govt bureaucracy gets to do the permits for everything.
Whereas all new oil and gas production has to fund the costs of removing all that CO2 from the atmosphere ?
There is no need to build any new nuclear power stations in Britain.
We can simply buy reliable French nuclear power while in turn selling them decent hard cheese and proper beer.
Whereas his opposite number is a former kindergarten student who used to soil his own nappies
In the case of glass milk bottles it is almost 100 times more energy intensive to make them, transport them, wash them out, collect and transport them back to the plant, wash and sterilise them and use them again - than it is to use plastic pouches.
I wasn't saying anything about the pilot - if anything their PR dept + beardie were being disrespectful by putting out an overblown "The Right Stuff" hero type statements with an eye to the share price.
The pilot died testing an prototype aircraft that was very clever, very novel and an excellent piece of engineering and everybody is rightfully sad about that but it is the same as if a driver had died testing a formula 1 car.
>How did you work that out?
The virgin "spacecraft" isn't a step to space like SpaceX or even the shuttle.
It is a sub-orbital ballistic flight to get somebody to an official definition of "space" so they can say they have done it. It is more like designing and building a helicopter that can reach 30,000ft so you can run tourist trips to the top of Everest. Technically challenging - yes, dangerous - yes, profitable - yes, but a breakthrough in mountaineering - no.
Frankly the "he died for the future of the human race in space" PR releases are like comparing somebody being killed on a jet ski accident on holiday to the sailors that died on Atlantic convoys in WWII.
Except he isn't doing "space travel" - he is doing a brief sub-orbital hop for people who either don't understand the difference or just want to say they have done it.
It isn't advancing human-whatsit anymore than millionaires having a flight in a jet fighter.
You don't know the lengths InPark will goto to collect on penalty notices - Orpheus has nothing on them.
Then it is upto them to defend this view in court.
It is reasonable to trespass to save a life.
That means I can jump over your fence to pull you out of a river.
It doesn't mean I can break into your house to PATT test your kettle.
I thought they weren't allowed to spy on MPs ?
This could be the flaw in their plans.
If evil foreigners in Iraq are planning to behead westerners then perhaps spying on evil foreigners in Iraq might be an optimal strategy?
Of course when we faced imminent annihilation from 20,000 soviet nulcear warheads - the same agencies concentrated on spying on the Bishop of Durham and Peter Sellers so perhaps they know best
Roll-back / Roll-out
The crap English is deliberate - or at least in their favour.
They are fishing for idiots - every email that initially fools a smart person who replies is a cost for them with no pay off when the smart person eventually fails to send them the processing fee or credit card.
With the bad English, smart people never reply, but the idiots do. Those people are much more likely to eventually cough up cash
If you want to read the paper take a look at Petzold's book on turing's work
Even if you understand the maths it's useful to have the 1930s fonts and notation explained.
Or it's because a sex scene lets you show some tit and so boosts your audience.
Most "straight" sex scenes in movies don't tend to concentrate on the leading man's dangly bits.
Not quite. The polish and the french both broke (or rather developed the techniques to attack) the original version of the enigma. The poles after the Germans accidentally shipped a machine to them instead of the German embassy.
Bletchley park cracked the more complex version with rotors and developed ways to do so in useful time - there is little tactical benefit in taking 3months to crack a code that changes daily.
The real unknown genius of Bletchley is Tutte who cracked the far more complex Lorenz system without anyone ever having seen one.
The good news is - we are making a major Holywood motion picture about your life
The bad news is - Seth Rogen is the best person to play you .....
>Have you not been watching the news lately?
And we will go to war with Russia over Ukraine?
When they can plunge the whole of western europe into darkness by turning off the gas?
>I think you'd rather have the state of the art military equipment and never need it,
What kit do we need to go to war with China?
A robot army of a billion terminators?
It's pretty pointless Britain and Germany spending billions on an air superiority fighter to defend us originally against the East German airforce and now aginst Al Queda - but it makes everyone feel good
Like security guards limit bank robbers ability to recover costs
Netflix aren't an ISP or a telco or a peer. They are a website.
Connections to the reg aren't peered either and I read a lot more than I comment - should the reg have to pay my ISP as well as me paying them ?
My understanding was that the watch enabled precisely this "writing on your hand" functionality.
You start to write a message to somebody and it pings their watch and shows the character being drawn as you draw it.
The market for iWatch is supposedly China and handwritten tweets
To read short messages in chinese easily without a lot of context you need to know the order the strokes were made in. The iWatch has a messaging app where you can draw a chinese character and it is sent to the recipient a stroke at a time in real time, so they can get your tweet and understand it quickly.
But in the new Holywood version the Americans would single-handedly defeat the submarine sized shark - possibly by Jeff Goldblum installing a virus
By cracking their secret codes ?
But the expats know things that the locals would never know.
How to get an XYZ visa, or if you need one. How to get a local bank account if you only have a foreign credit history. Which insurance companies accept your UK no-claims history,
And where to buy marmite
Where pay-per-bonk has a whole new meaning
But that only works with modules that declare themselves to be video drivers.
Whats to stop the milk marketing board (other secret government organisations are available) subverting a filesystem driver to also have access to your webcam?
But you might be better if the person is driving a caterham or even a 2CV, without ABS, rather than a 4ton SUV with the driver playing with the touch screen.
All cars are born with the steering wheel on the left - even those built in Britain. Cars destined for Britain must be taken to a secret monastery in the Himalayas where saffron robbed monks change the wheel over for right hand drive. This is an expensive process.
This is why even cars built in Britain for foreigners are cheaper to buy on the continent than at home.
Just bought my first American car (not my fault)
It locks all the doors when you go above 10mph and they stay locked even when you stop and turn the engine off. The drivers door opens but you have to press a button to release the passengers, I keep walking off to see my wife fuming at being kept prisoner.
And for some reason I don't understand, the remote unlock doesn't do the driver's door - you have to use the key to get in.
If I wasn't a programmer I would RTFM and find out how to stop it.
More people used cupholders instead of wedging the cup between their legs - or more people used cars without cupholders and concentrated on driving ?
@chris17 - they aren't tampering, you are. You are trying to use an FTDI driver with someone else's chip. If you used the fake's own driver with the fake part there is no issue.
you better hope that nobody at the NSA knows anything about history or France - so you're probably safe
The 14th amendment and a civil war ?
