Re: Breaking news...
I thought that this was know for centuries see for example http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg_Agricola
PS. I hear that members of the Ursidae family defecate in silvan areas
There are large areas of semi-desert that are wanted for the SKA radio telescope array project where we DO NOT WANT drones saturating our receivers.
It sounds similar to the Afristar concept where the majority of the intended audience could not afford the receivers and did not particularly want the product. Those who can afford it picked up satellite TV, like DSTV (I see their dishes even on some shacks).
Re: Totally agree about WTFapp
Yes, with children on a different continent SMS gets expensive
However it is basically an IRC, so hardly innovative.
Some things are unique and cannot be replaced - hence no insurance
Others are an almost certain catastrophe coming - hence no one will insure them
I let others judge which the energy firms are
I for one welcome our new G-Wiz driving overlords
Even if they can't steer
“'Poor performance' is now being viewed as a defect,” Richards reckoned.
What ! from a banker!

Yup, another sufferer here -some start me sneezing
One of the (many, many) things I like about my wife is that she never uses it.
Who the hell ever gave people (well women actually) that the opposite sex would like them to smell of some random collection of plant and animal extracts??
I suspect that we have the Romans to blame for it

I can haz jailtime?
surely he can't be that Baaaaaaaaa-d
The initial work was done by guys from Poland
So why is it smaller?
I am puzzled about why (with extra libraries) it ends up smaller
Good luck in trying to enforce any of that 'designer' stuff in the rest of the world. I suggest that what will happen is that overseas factories will copy it perhaps minor tweaks.
I think that the whole IP law needs a major overhaul and agreements on international levels; at the moment corporations go jurisdiction shopping
Crack CompSci experts
They would need to be on crack to want to get into teaching
People (like Tom Muxlow at Jodrell Bank) have been following developments in M82 for a long time; it has lots of relatively young supernova remnants and another supernova soon was highly likely (estimated about one every 30 years)
Icon: for Tom
Surely Oracle HQ should be 'Heartbreak Hotel'

Re: I drink coffee
use your nose - follow the delicious aroma ....
What - you mean that they have already memorized it!
Just use a LART , on the both the Luser and their toys!
But (looking at the icon) do you have any fiends
my icon: what should be done with this idea
Re: Think there website has been hacked....
Very wisdom. Such terse. Wow!
To qualify as a ghost you have to be dead first.
Or are the quasi-dead necromongers?
I suspect he will have a case of 'Sta-Soft' for a while
The 'die in agony' outside the simulator could also be arranged for the benefit of viewers
Re: Mostly Harmless
We do have a northern & southern galactic pole, and if we define stuff moving from east to west (like sun's apparent motion) we could define it, but would need an arbitrary reference point (like Greenwich).
I have no Idea where to put that on a galactic scale.
re: no experts in science and technology
But obviously great expertise in clowning

But what happens if you get a Communication Breakdown?
I think that would be a Heartbreaker

You mean 'percussive maintenance'
Re: Welcome to the pretty countryside
possibly they named the village after the supervillain?
re: master of all I survey
I think that current politicians prefer "Ignorance is strength"
Re: !Subtle under tones
There are individual very smart Americans (I know several) but I am afraid that the average is very low indeed.

There ain't nothin' more powerful than the odor of mendacity

hottest girl in the bar
I might be unusual here but I prefer a combination of intelligent & hot enough over the hottest. And NOT a vain 'princess' type.
Perhaps there is some deep seated urge in me to have intelligent offspring rather than dumb (female or male) blonds.
They should have called it the "BobCratchit" as it seems more like a victorian clerk's desk.
But kudos to you for keeping on with this stuff. I only hope that business attire doesn't become Spandex. With some of my colleagues (and - truth to tell - myself) that would be an abomination.
Try the Dilbert solution for backups
after all the NSA & GCHQ must have all this stuff anyway
re: Wolves have been tamed?
I have a colleague whose 'pet' is half wolf; it is BLOODY BIG with matching teeth.
She says that it is normally very quiet but gets 'upset' when people (like vets) annoy it and the vet still has the bite marks. I personally would not like to annoy it.
Cookbooks (recipes of common tasks) are sometimes more useful than a full manual.
My favourite was the AIPS cookbook (for the Astronomical Image Processing System) which also added banana recipes to the software ones.
Icon: apparently she has a 'banana' body type. I am sure readers can also imagine other connotations.
Re: greenhouse heater
I used to dream about a heater.
Château de Chasselas anybody?
Add South Africa to the list of coal addict (and still building more - look up Medupi)
