"that can launch from a ship, deliver weapons, and return, "
deliver weapons"? Shirley that should be "blast the crap out of someone"
Now your birthday or Christmas present buying dilemma is solved!
Back in ye olden days was the chain of Wimpy Bar. they sold burgers and had cutlery made of something called metal. Then came in the media a big story of how McD was coming to the UK. They came, I went, it was crap and AFAIK it remains crap.
"popular sites including motorcycle.com, autoguide.com, and mothering.com"
None of which I have ever heard of! Presumably they are USian.
All the Linkedin invites that I get are marked as spam, MS just wasted a lot of money. Also, only Linux used here!
I went there and just got this: (Is dreict similar to Scottish rainfall?)
"File Not Found. Please turn on client scripting or browse with a browser that supports client scripting to allow the 404 url dreict feature to work."
"Mars boffins reckon they've found seasonal found patterns in Mars' dust storms."
Too many founds!
>>People still keen to leave the EU?
When you see clowns like Boris and Farage saying "leave" it's probably better to do the opposite.
I backed out of installing Firefox when it asked me for my grandma's maiden name (slight exaggeration). Seriously, I thought that I had been hacked and shut down the phone.
That title is supposed to be a joke. Maybe you have not yet grasped the subtleties of British humour.
The day after the referendum Alex Salmond said that the "No" voters were tricked. That's like calling them stupid. No Alec we were not tricked, after all those years in the planning you had no plan for the Scottish currency.
Next up Nicola Sturgeon says that she will keep working for an independent Scotland. What the fuck use are these "leaders" when they first insult and then ignore majority of the voters wishes!
In a nearby town there's a guy called "Bob the builder". He hangs around the pub doorway seemingly doing business deals on several phones. Unfortunately they are all imaginary :(
I studied Latin when I was 11 and 12 years old and that's about all that I can remember of it :(
Judging by the thickness of that tankard's walls I can imagine that the Trading Standards officers of the day would just beat a cheating landlord around the head with it to get compliance.
Cheers, by some miracle it's already Friday here :)
Dear energystar, what you smoking?
Phil Mocek should try a FOI request for the indemnity (if any) offered by the makers of these meters. If they are hacked by terrorists a whole lot of damage could be caused by repeatedly switching on and off multiple houses.
So if the makers T&Cs state " We do not guarantee that these devices are fit fit for purpose" or maybe "We accept no liability for any damage caused by this device" then we need to know. Who pays when it all goes wrong?
On my old Nokia 6310 it would tell me when a SMS had been sent. This is important because where I live sometimes a SMS will arrive 24 hrs. after being sent*. On my new "smartphone" it only shows when it was received :( Well duh' I just heard it beep so that when it got here. WHEN WAS IT SENT!
*Oddly, If I send a SMS to New Zealand (in the other hemisphere) it will arrive almost instantly.
Today, President Trump decreed that from now on the internet is to be called the Trumpernet and everybody who uses it has to pay him. Why he had a pencil in each nostril has yet to be explained.
>The panic response didn't stop the Wolverhampton school machete attack a couple of months later.
A machete is not a gun, WTF are you on about? Did some nasty law stop you fondling a weapon?
What you have to do is this;
Roughly determine where the leak is.
Get a bucket and a screwdriver.
Position the bucket and using the screwdriver make a small hole in the ceiling.
This will allow any water to drip into the bucket.
If you don't do this your ceiling will collapse.
That would be expensive, whereas filling a small hole would be cheap.
You owe me £50!
A Spaniard asks an Irishman if they had a word similar to mañana. The Irishman replies, "Yes, but it doesn't have the same sense of urgency".
I drove my Quad system up to Cambridge and they re-valved it, fixed a pre-amp problem and re-built the electrostatic speakers and then posted the lot back. Cost? £180!! That has to be a bargain, even in 1983.
To my eternal shame, living in Germany in 1987 I flogged the lot for £500 :( Why? That was to buy my first PC, I should have kept the stereo. <exit stage left, gnashing teeth>
They're like a dog suffering from ADHD on a bouncy castle that just had the contents of a ball pit dumped in it.
LOL, I nearly spat out my whisky and we know that's a crime. (Got home early on a Friday)
You are a little late to that game. I've always boycotted Apple products and dumped Microsoft when they released the steaming pile of DRM that was Vista.
Truce, sure thing.
When the Advertising Industry indemnifies me for loss due to malvertising is when I switch off ad-blocking.
It will never happen.
That is an awesome link, Prince was a genius in the same league as Mozart.
Prince could dance, sing and play the guitar all at the same time. Much kudos to that man.
Chris Rea? Who dat?
>or people will transferred their conscienceless into robots.
I took drudgs but I'm not conscienceless
Shurley not are famous Gurning champs are dying?
Although I would love it if you are wrong, yours is the first sensible assessment of the observed thrust.
Same here, IIRC the last time time I had Quicktime installed it was on a 386.
Trump becomes president and has access to all this data. Disagree with him and you are off for some enhanced interrogation. Read "The Gulag Archipelago" for details. Soon you will be confessing to being a terrorist or pervert.
Can iPad owners view the BBC News videos and watch iPlayer content? If so, I could spoof my user agent and dump Flash forever.
In other news Russian scientists create three legged, mobile and venomous plants.
Back in the early 80s I played a game on AFAIR an Amiga using 3D glasses. It was a two player spaceship game set in a little universe that had a planetoid gravity attractor at the top and a hanger on the ground below. To re-charge your ship you had to land and make contact with the hanger. The glasses were LCD strobed viewing alternate frames in each eye.
I'm not rushing out to buy one, maybe wait 20 years for a open standard to appear.
One sensor is for colour and the other is monochrome. The software merges the two images and you can alter the focus afterwards.
I have a Philips fan heater that is over 30 years old. It has a label underneath that says "Every six months unplug from wall, remove base, clean out fluff and oil the motor bearings". I've been doing that! It's so old that the neon light stopped working, I replaced it with one from a kettle that died in less than a year.
I also have an equally old Philips digital clock. It has 15mm red LEDs and dims at night. It does not keep you awake like some cheap radio/alarm clocks do.
Mr. Trump should do more to endear himself to the working class. I recommend that he visits the Acme Anvil Co. followed by the Acme Grand Piano Co. Hopefully something will go wrong.
"first a “collection database” went flaky,"
That'll be the NSA guys having a fat finger moment.
The poor skipper of this ship is going to have to spell out whatever name is chosen on the radio. No doubt the winner will be something stupid like Sir Hugh Woresly-Wankbottom. My suggestion, RSS Aurora.
I've been wondering why the Chrome logo is the intertwined 666. Either they employed a graphic artist who had absolutely no knowledge of symbolism or they really *are* evil.
Don't send anything back to Amazon or you'll be banned!
Well that's crap service from a crap company. No wonder that I see "Amex not accepted" signs on my travels.
Note to 'merkins: Don't travel abroad with this card, it really is not widely accepted.
Agreed! In a reversal of the "no one got fired for buying IBM" I would suggest that anyone suggesting a Microsoft solution is taken out back and shot. Well OK maybe just fired.
Nice story and quite profound. But hey girls and guys you are all a bit late to the party. Did you not notice that Windows became spyware beginning with Vista. It's inbuilt DRM was constantly using *your* resources to check that you were not doing something criminal.
I went over to Linux but I am applauding Apple for their stance on privacy. This coming from a long-time Apple basher is quite a rare occurrence. As for Windows it's "time to die". (Bladerunner)
As we know from Newtons Laws of Motion when a pendulum changes direction it has to stop. So if a bumblebee hits the front of the Flying Scotsman it must momentarily stop the train as the bee reverses it's course. Or it could just be a glitch in the Matrix! <dons tinfoill hat>
I have almost exactly the same experience but I've never yet managed to unblock enough shit to get Disqus to work.
Here's a how to configure LibreOffice on Mac for RTL fonts.
