Lands clearance suggests that you have an alternative use for it (in the clearances in Scotland it was sheep).
What could one use Sunderland for? Wind farms?
Bearing it mind that the subs will be running on Windows, how about Bob, Rover and Clippy?
Don't blame me for the language design; I think it's wretched, too,
and I only did this implementation for the hack value. Finally, a
*real* language that's as perverse and limiting as INTERCAL...
I have never seen better.
I beg to differ.
For getting work done I go with function over 'beauty' every time. My garden spade looks pretty rusty but works, nobody will gaze in admiration at my screwdriver set and it is the same with the software I need. I prefer CLI over GUI --unless-- the GUI has some real added value for the extra screen space it uses.
My data reduction is run with a CLI (which can be easily scripted) and save the pretty stuff for showing the results.
The appealing looks maybe useful for selling games (yes I'm thinking of Kate 'Game of War' Upton) but does not help the game quality.
Art is 'worth' what somebody will pay for it.
Personally I like the train set, but getting it from the manufacturer has a better guarantee than that from the artist.
No sign of 'art for art's sake' with this lot.
I think it is wanted on Magrathea
They really need a fine-toothed comb to root this out.

I couldn't because it is Irish and starts with an " O' "
Their software could not accept " ' " as it wanted letters only.
I suspect it would have the same problem in South Africa where some names include " ! " for the click sounds.
Have to agree; if you want resilience get away from digital and if you want coverage go below 100MHz.
This allows anyone to listen, so you may need to use code phrases.
I know a guy who wrote a full screen text editor in FORTRAN for a bet.
Ghent is OK,
The beer there is good - see icon
makes about as much sense as making foreign mathematics illegal.

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?
I have an abacus running Warp (well the frame is bent)

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.
