All totally unproven; your assertions need to be backed up with data.
All Pop I stars may have planets (possible within the statistics we have) but there is not enough data to say that any significant fraction will be earth-like. Most detected are gas giants (because they are easier to detect).
How the hell do the asteroids get the escape velocity from the solar system and target themselves to Proxima b, which is a minuscule fraction of the sky, and not even in the plane of the solar system.
To have been in the Nazi Government you would have to have been at least 20 years old in 1945, so that means you would have to have been born in 1925, making you about 91 years old.
This is hardly relevant to the vast bulk of air travellers.
Shoot them -no ! Surely you mean hang from the highest yardarm in the British Fleet
But I believe Admiral Byng was actually shot

The unit for weight should be grains, or ounce. Check with king Offa.
Dish gain only really helps you if you know where to look. The advantage of arrays like the MWA is that they can make multiple phased-arrays, scanning in multiple directions simultaneously.
According to Wikipedia, the R100 was designed by Barnes Wallis (a serious boffin) ; the R101 was designed by a government appointed team. That may be the reason
I fear that for many readers of El Reg they should avoid sunbathing completely; this is not for their benefit, but for those around them.
Like the old saying: "Three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead."
flat sales suggest a mature market. Somebody needs to come out a ground-breaking, must-have feature. Not just a few more pixels on the camera.
Anybody out there with good ideas?

For observing pulsars, pure area is what you need.
For almost anything else you want the resolution too.
Calibration is a regular part of any scientific instrument, both internal (do sensors respond in a reasonable way) and external (check against various known results from a totally different instrument using different software).
No, W10 was Klingon software. It was not released, but escaped leaving a bloody trail of design engineers and quality assurance testers in its wake.
The mind boggles at what he would get if he asked for scrumpy
Context matters with memory. I had an instance inside a bank where I needed my banking PIN, but could not remember it.
I stepped outside to the ATM and it the memory came bank instantly.
If Lauri has the same thing he might need to sit in front of his computer to remember the code
I think you mean 21st century
These guys & gals all come from two universities: Stellenbosch (locally known as Maties) an Witwatersrand (Wits for short).
Somebody is clearly doing something right in those two institutions.
Why would anybody sitting in a burning aircraft take the time to photograph the burning engine?
Cats were looked upon as gods in ancient Egypt. They still remember.
was it off the shoulder of Orion?
Chinese one is BeiDou, but its coverage is only useful around Asia/Australasia
I would be happier about all this IOT crap if it used open protocols and had sensible firewalls setup as default. It would also need battery backups for 'mission critical' parts (locks and firewall)
.. and about as comfortable.
As an aside I am sick of "1 size fits all" in socks too - my (UK) size 11 feet will not fit into something that was not too baggy for somebody with a size 7. Software is often similar, in that a small app to handle 50 items in a static list will not need the same infrastructure as one for dynamic database of millions of items. GUIs that look acceptable on a tiny screen may look like crap on a big screen with decent resolution.
The here was the one who changed the original version and not use a copy
USA or China - a touch one. Corporatist or Capitalist?
I had heard of smoking dogs (beagles) before - i think he misinterpreted
HAHAHAHA - nice piece of sarcasm there.
It was sarcasm, right?
anything less than 3 standard deviations is undecided. Only believe anything above 5.
Computers have their uses (for engineering and science) to grasp the meaning of the maths and examine real data.
I personally never understood the Runge-Kutta method until I could graph it on a computer.
Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass);
Financial Conduct Authority;
Gangmasters Licensing Authority;
NATS (an air traffic control provider);
Natural Resources Wales;
Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals; and
I can sort of understand Cafcass and maybe the SSPCA, but am puzzled by the others.
"up to" translates to "never more than" or "less than" in most cases
They have probably picked up our radio stations and decided that we are not the neighbours that they want to be friendly with - see icon
"cloud first, mobile first" is turning out to be cloud servers running some version of Linux and mobile running Android or iOS.
Well citizen, I think you are going to get a lot of scrutiny in Airstrip One and everywhere else in Oceania.
Remember: Ignorance is Strength
4711e17 (or 4.711e20) sounds like a hell of a lot of steps. If each step takes 1 second that wold be more than a thousand times the age of the universe.
must be tone deaf or totally deaf. That noise is truly nasty.
I am pretty sure it was April 2016
1) Even in Africa, everyone with a job can buy a smartphone -see 3
2) I have seen no compelling new features since a decent camera was there
3) From about $50 you can buy a new low end smart phone 'landfill android'; second hand is cheaper still.
4) When everyone has a smartphone, where's the status - they all look pretty similar
There is no site I trust enough to download a banking app from.
Can't imagine this being a huge source of income for cybercriminals
If I remember correctly these nano-surfaces basically act like a series of spikes that puncture the cell walls of the bacteria- it is a physical rather than a chemical attack.
Liquid Nitrogen! Let's suffocate everyone!
Maybe more fun, liquid oxygen. BURN that titanium case
