BOSS Bang boffins: DARK ENERGY spreading across the Universe

Re: It's the best theory we have so far

Perhaps the full quote works better; "All models are wrong; some are useful" This is found in George Box's 1954 book. If there is an earlier citation, I have not found it but would welcome an update.

Metric versus imperial: Reg readers weigh in

AceBitbucket

The ONLY sensible solution

Clearly, there is too much nativism here. The metric system might work--if they could come up with a definition of the basic units that everyone would agree on. I mean, its been how many years and they are still fiddling with their definitions. And don't get me started on joules. The only logical method is to return to our roots. May I humbly(?) suggest we adapt our ancestral measurement system as illustrated here:

BUSTED! Secret app on millions of phones logs key taps

AceBitbucket

Agreed. Never ascribe to malevolence that which is equally well explained by stupidity. I would still like to perform violent acts on the entire company starting with the CEO and working my way down to the poor droid who will be blamed.

And, if that does not work? Get a bigger hammer, of course.

£1bn+ Royal Navy destroyer finally fires 'disgraceful' weapon

Thumb Up

You got that before I could, darn.

What would be neat as a follow-up would be a BOFH tie-in with PFY and Simon playing with their new toy remotely.

SCO rises from the dead (again)

AceBitbucket
Pint

In the FYI department

Based on a morbid fascination with this train wreck, I have come to following conclusions. The Bankruptcy court does not want to be bothered; whatever arcane excuse SCO comes up with is fine. The guy in charge is either smoking something or has never actually read any of the financials so thinks SCO has a whizz-bang case. The only reason that I think that they keep flogging the poor beast is that the end of this case would/could mean the start of SCO vs IBM. Since SCO NEVER EVER provided any proof of the alleged code violations and IBM lawyers are all Nazgul or worse, this even frightens SCO (maybe). IANAL.

RE: Unix Copyrights

That is the best short summary of this goat-rope that I have read. Well done.

SCO: jurors too busy Facebooking to rule on Unix claim

Jobs Horns

The Saga Continues....

Isn't it amazing that everybody in all of the known multiverses--and, some that are not known--has managed to look at all of the same evidence and yet can't get to the same conclusion as SCO? Gosh, we all must be facebooking. Or, not.
