Must be a reference to Finian's Rainbow. Anything with Fred Astaire & Petula Clark as 'Irish' pursued by leprechauns
What about SL4A, qpython and ruboto for your android?
Learning some scripting language on a phone is quite possible
To be a 'Celebrity' you have to be a sort of narcissistic twit. It goes with the territory.
Occasionally (very rarely) these celebrities can act or perhaps sing.
Re: Trust your data to the cloud they said
'safe' means it is never, ever, going to be lost 'convenient' means anyone can find it.
The problem might not be with the little old lady next door, but a visiting grandchild scriptkiddie 'helping' her
but do use MAC filtering & psk2

I thought that legal entities LOVED small print; I see it in most contracts I am expected to sign

Re: Lets get this straight
Maybe it is related to availability of receivers of stolen goods (fences to you and me)
- people usually steal stuff for money. If there is no market it isn't interesting.
People will steal the strangest things if they can sell them
I remember seeing this memorable quote:
The main expertise of telecoms companies is not telecoms, it is billing
This fits most situations I have seen when dealing with them.

Out of curiosity - does anybody know of mission critical business apps running in ActiveX??
Re: The Correct Term
After all the UK population is less than 1 % of the world population
What about the pain and suffering we are given from crappy and irritating music in shops, shopping malls, gyms etc. It annoys me a lot and for my wife (a musician) there are some shops she cannot bear to enter.
Icon - the volume and sound quality
Re: Seeing a big hole in the page
They think you don't want to see it using its RUBBER GLOVES
Re: Questions for rocket scientists:
Are we simply talking about radiation pressure here?
If so, why not just use mirrors - like a solar sail?

Re: I guess their Tweet is better...
NO WAY is it better

Re: HEVC for SD
If this signal processing stuff were done in FPGA you wouldn't need new hardware you would just reconfigure.
Does anyone use this technology for TVs?
you're golding it wrong
7: The Romans Popularized Screws Throughout Their Empire
Judging by the picture you have an odd idea of popular.
Perhaps that explains some articles
I would have been happier with the wine press (or even olive oil press)

SOME driving is enjoyable.
Creeping along in rush hour traffic is not. What I would prefer is a switch (driverless or with) so that during the rush hour crap I can read a paper, check the internet for news, eat some toast, have some tea etc.
However I have seen people doing that already while 'driving' in traffic
feline world takeover imminent
This was just scoping out our technology (which failed!)

Re: The chocolate is still shit, though.
Yes, NO E476 for me please!
Stick to proper chocolate like something from Lindt.

Re: Not just people

At least you don't have a bathtub in reception.
Re: So it's OK to copy a series of photographs...
No, just 'quote' every other pixel. Or compress slightly more
I'll have a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range
Re: Robot interviews
No, they are referred to as 'droids'
Re: "Joan Clarke was rather plain,"
Make up your own mind about Keira:
Most of them are like the Vasa, which sailed 1300m on her maiden voyage and sank.
They don't even have the dignity of getting as far as the Titanic

cavemen in SPAAAAACE
So back to our troglodyte origins?
Seriously it does seen a good idea to stay in a cave as long as it is safe (see icon)
surely it is all over by now.

Re: Well there is flaw right there....
Yes, but what about using one-way screws? They are common enough around here and, as long as they are counter sunk and used with some Locktite or similar adhesive, are truly hard to remove. You are reduced to drilling them out. That might get the attention of security staff
No, I can only smell the "powerful and obnoxious odor of mendacity" (to quote Tennessee Williams)
The moment governments shout 'Terrorist' or 'Paedo' I smell bullshit.
Re: But in the past mechanical Typewriters divulged their secrets to the spys
Yes, better stick to clay tablets or roman tabula rasa (waxed board).
Erase the first with a hammer and the second with heat
obvious name for a SU crossover
"malicious Java applet"
My experience is that most of them are malicious
The one with the funny symbols?
I haven't seen anyone use APL in decades; surely a scripting language with vector algebra (maybe python with Numpy or similar) would be easier
Anyone out there: Do you use APL
What about the AIR quality
My main problem with flights is the recycled air that everyone has coughed and sneezed in; I have known colleagues who had to sit around a guy with the flu for 8hrs and then (guess what!) they all contracted it.
My wife occasionally blacks out on long haul flights with the low oxygen levels (or maybe it is aerotoxic syndrome).
