Passport PIN tech could have SAVED MH370 ID fraudsters

Joke

Re: Lost or stolen (or dead)

You mean as well as clearing up the blood and disposing of the body I have find the passport and send it to the passport office. Oh you didn't mean executer...my bad :-(

My coat is the one with executor instructions in the pocket along with the bloody knife. A bloody dictionary would be better!

Re: Girls

Lots of people have degrees, many have more than one. Does not necessarily mean that they are any good at anything in the work place. What is wrong with working at a hotel? One of my friends started working at a hotel and is now finance director of an international hotel chain.

PSST! New PCs with Windows 7 preinstalled are out there – and will be into 2015, at least

cosymart
WTF?

Sell it to me

Perhaps it because I a bit long in the tooth, but if someone is trying to get me to buy something I expect them to sell it to me. You know the carrot, oooh buy this because it will do this; quicker, better, less errors etc. All I am getting is "move to Windows 8 because XP is being pulled". Great incentive! So just what is better about the latest offering? Do tell, don't be shy.

LOHAN's handsome young autopilot springs into life

Re: Don't forget

Speaking of foreign shores... What you also need then is an automatic flag slider (Think 007 number plates on the Aston Martin DB5). This could be linked to the GPS and programmed to change when crossing the border. We don't want our hero Playmonaut to be banged up for illegal entry.

I like Virgin(s)

To put the other side of the coin I have the combined router/modem/hub/thingy from Virgin and it has been perfect from the day it arrived. Full house coverage, no problems.

Mail Migration

2nd Migration

So having migrated your mail system once, your organisation presumably made the wrong choice or the perimeters changed. The phrase "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence" springs to mind. I also foresee blood on the carpet; users are involved :-(

Update

10 November 2013 - 23:50 CET

Contact with GOCE was made once again from the Troll station in Antarctica at 23:42 CET. The central computer temperature is at 80ºC and the battery is at 84ºC. At an altitude of less than 120 km, the spacecraft is – against expectations – still functional.

Virgin Media suffers growing pains as Cable Cowboy daddy settles in

Re: Rip Out....

I have never known any of the providers rip out the previous connections or indeed their own when swapping over tenants / owners. Witness the masses of redundant co-ax cable from both Virgin and Sky strewn around the door frames and skirting boards of most flats.

Digital radio may replace FM altogether - even though nobody wants it

cosymart
Thumb Down

DAB - Could be better!

I would love to use DAB as my main source of radio music as when it works it is great. Between my house and the transmitter is a long line of brick houses so the signal stands no chance. FM is fine though. Have 2 DAB radios. One is connected to an external aerial, works fine, the other does not have an external aerial connector so is either a door stop or connected to FM.

Agree with the earlier comment about the design of the DAB radios, why do they all try to look "trendy retro" and fail?

Is there any payment for dossing in an embassy? If not might try that the next time I am in London for a long weekend. Choice: typical *** star London hotel for £120 a night or a free stay at an embassy of my choice....mmm tough one.

Paris Hilton cos she isn't against putting it up for free.

British support for fracking largely unmoved by knowledge of downsides

cosymart

Greens, peas and things.

The problems is as I see it is this. All the Greens ever do is say "No, you cannot do that" I have never come across a Green positive quote ie. "You cannot do this but doing this would be better and more effective".

Examples:

1) You cannot put a barrage across (name your nearest estuary) as it will harm the environment. Excuse me, but if we don't tackle global warming the environment is fucked anyway!

2) You cannot build wind farms as it damages the environment and harms birds. Excuse me, but if we don't tackle global warming the environment is fucked anyway!

Nutters!

Re: I don't like it!

I for one have no objections to a world with clean air and water, and that in it's self is an admirable goal. I am just not convinced that climate warming is solely attributable to mankind. I didn't say mankind is not having an effect just not 100% attributable.

As long as a peice of string

I think that NASA and the BEAGLE Team for that matter missed a trick here. Why did they not tie a piece of string to the back of these buggies? They could then have measured how much string has been spooled out and that gives the distance. Low tech wins every time! The BEAGLE team could have pulled back their crashed lander to find out what happened to it. A secondary function would be to aid communications in that a couple of tin cans could be attached to the string so that any Martian, Alien etc. could just speak to us. Wow!

Strange that the Commission stopped the work after the wedding. If they really had teeth they would have stopped the whole thing that day. Just at the point where the official says "does anyone have any objections to this couple..." That would have made him choke on his $9M

Phones for the elderly: Testers wanted for senior service

cosymart
Thumb Down

Re: What I want....

You guys are all missing the point... Yes, I can get a phone with bluetooth. Yes, they have digital hearing aid compatibility (T setting). The bluetooth hearing aid adapters are about as ascetically pleasing as a brick and require the hearing aid to be permanently set to the T setting which effectively means I am completely deaf :-(

The bluetooth hearing aids are mostly bluetooth earpieces with sound boosters which are cheap crap.
